It would be tonohiug if it were not
amusing to note the anxiety of the old
party bosses. "You ain't going back on
the old party, are you?" Is it going
baok on them to refuse further allegi
anoe to the parties that long ago went
baok on us? No. By disoontiuuinf? to
vote with the partita Ibat would soon
legislate us out of what little they have
left us, we have merely stopped going
back on ourselves.
The people are no longer to be fooled
by the smooth talk and false promises of
the old politioiaDB. The worn oat cry of
"Stick to the grand old republican" or
"grand old democratic" rPry kas lost its
foroe. The people have long etuok to
the old parties through tbiok and turn,
but they have found thai promises are
thick while performances are thin. They
have found that the old parties are
getting worse and worse, and are run
only for pelf and preferment, without re
gard to the rights of the great mass of
citizens who form the rank and file. So
they have formed a party of the people
and for the people.
No one doubts that the farmers' alliance is a
grand organization. It was born to do good
and to make smoother the rugged pathway oi
those who till the soil. It was ushered into ex
istence not as a political organization, nor as an
Institution whose purpose was to elevate to
power or political preferment any of the disaf
fected strikers or soreheads of either of the old
parties, but as a labor organizatton whose Bole
object was the protection and advancement of
the agriculturalists of the United StateB. It is
an outgrowth of the old patrons of huBbandry,
has absorbed other grange societies, and its
membership now numbers probably not less
than 3,000,000 in the United States. East Ore
Tbank yon, brother. Bo far so good.
Bat why spoil it by saying in the same
paragraph that the people's party is led
by old-parly soreheads who are trying to
pull the ulliauoe into their ranks; that
the leaders of the people's party "are
laboring for their own personal aggran
disement, have no love for the farmers,
and it is right that the allianoe should
refuse to lend tbem encouragement, f"
Fiel Fiel Suob an ingenious twisting
of things was not expected from the
usually oandid E. O. That the . 0., of
all others, should resort to suob tricks is
but another evidence of the strength of
the people's party and of the poverty of
argument agaiust it. And it is amusing
the dear farmers of the alliance refuse
to join the nicked people's party I Oh,
E. O.I E. O.l But perhaps the E. O. is
innooent in the matter. Perhaps it
really doesn't know that the allianoe wbb
the germ of the people's party ; that the
alliance is now the core, the heart, of the
people's party. The allianoe is the reg-
ular standing army ; the people's party
includes this and the immense volunteer
foroes attracted by the justness of its
oause and despairing of securing the
rights of the people at the bands of the
old parties. It the E. 0. man will extend
his reading beyond the old-party papers,
be will find ample confirmation of this
assertion, and be will also find that able
writers, deep thinkers and honest men,
who never sought offioe in the old par
ties and are not seeking it m tne new,
are the advisors of the people's party, in
stead of its being led by disappointed
plaoe-bunters. It is easier and less pain
ful to believe that tke E. O. is itself de
ceived, than that it is deliberately adopt
ing disingenuous methods.

Indianapolis, Ind. April 26th, 1892,
Knightly Sir and Brother:--The application
for a Division of the Uniform Kank K. of P, to be

received at these Headquarters. The applica
tion has been approved by the Supreme Chan
cellor, and Capt. E. E. Sharon, of Pendleton,
State of Oregon, has been commissioned to insti
tute the said Division.
You will correspond with said instituting offi
cer as to date on which the Division will be
ready, and arrange with him fully all the de-
tailB. It will be your duty to pay the necessary
traveling expenses of the instituting officer.
Supplies will be sent to the instituting officer.
Warrant fee (thirty dollars) received and for
warded to the Supreme Keeper of Records and
Seal. The Division will be numbered on re
ceipt of the report of the instituting officer.
You will notify each of the applicants to be
present at the appointed time, and the necessity
of procuring the prescribed uniform for the
Kank before the meeting. I would also suggest
that you call a meeting previous to that time and
select officers, or at least your Treasurer, that he
may be prepared to furniBh his bond before the
officers are installed. You will bear In mind
also, that this Rank 1b dependent upon the Or
der of Knights of Pythias for membership, and
good standing therein must be established by
"Official Receipt" from the Lodge of which
he is a member, before a brother can be admit
ted. The instituting officer will call for such
evidence while in discharge of his duties, and
it should be promptly furnished him, and all
due obedience rendered to his orders.

If the uniforms reach you before May 14th

prefer the Pith if possible for you to get ready,.
otherwise I shall have to wait until I return

not been informed of the completion of our uni

been shipped. Should we receive them between

should they eome later, It would give the mem

HON. F. A. MOOltE.
Conclusive Answer to the Charges Reflecting
Upon His Integrity.
From the Orcgonian.
Portland, Or. Moy 5 To the Editor.
Our attention has been called to certain
articles published in several of the news
papers of the state, reflecting on the
character and integrity of Hon. F. A.
Moore, present republionn candidate for
supreme judge of tbe atate.
Having been attorneys in the oase men
tioned in the articles above oited, and
being entirely familiar with the facts of
tbe case, we deem it simple justioe to
say that the decisions of the courts thor
oughly vindicate Judge Moore, and that,
in our judgment, there is nothing in the
whole transaction whioh Teflects in any
degree on the integrity of Judge Moore,
either us a mun or as an attorney.
The whole question of Judge Moore's
good fuith was fully investigated and
tried, and tbe plaintiffs failed to estab
lish, by one partiolo of evidenoe, any
charge that they had made agaiust him.

in favor of Miss Voruz.of Heppner, Far
be it from my purpose to appear of a
"oDangeful spirit," but from present ad
vices it would appear that the party in
question is partial to Portland people.
All we bachelor's want is a square deal,
and we'll have that or I'll run myself, by
cracky ! If there is any deputy needed
Morrow Co. can furnish him, for we have
a fine job lot of bacbelois here. With
