IIKOUKATION OF PPItt'OfiBS.
Profoundly hiipreseed that we, the Farmers'
Alliance, united by strong aud faithful tics of fi
nancial and home Intercut, nbould set forth our
declaration of intention,; we therefore resolve
FlBtff To labor for the education of the agri
cultural classes in thesclence of economic govern
mcnl ilia stricly nuo-partlHiin spirit.
BwvrNP To cndirrHc the motto" "In thing, 68
aonlial, unity; and in all thiugn, charity."
Titian To develop a Iretter state, mentally,
morally, Hoclally, and financially.
Ft'ttTii To create a better uiKlerKtandlng for
Kustaitdng civil oiliccrs in malutuiuing law and
Fifth To constantly strive to fiecurc entire har
mony and good Mill among alt mauklud, and
brotherly love among oursclvc.
Hixtii ToHiiiircsN personal. Inenl, wetlonal,
and national prejudice, all unuealthful rivalry
and Hellish ambition.
8kv knth Tlie brightest Jewels which It gamer,
are the tears of widows and orphans, and Its Im
perative commands are to visit the home, where
lacerated hearts are bloeding; to assuage the auf
furtugs uf a brother or slater; bury the dead; e
Kaht Lkbakok, Aujruat 3, 1691.
The following article was cHiiperl by the
Albany Democrat from tlie Now York Voiee
uud hashed out ua "Cold Kail, het tiKiiiu" to
ita tletnoorutie renders to prejudice them a
guinnt the 'urmera' Alliuncc in old Unit
"The Altiunce, as a political movement ut
leaat, iaeertuinlyguing to amush, on this
Hiib-treuKury, or tlie achetne itself will go to
anuiah. The sumo is true of the People's
party. The Western National Alliance has
refused to endorse the scheme and the
National Grange, has, in an olticial docu
ment, denounced it as "unwise and imprac
tieable." It is the blindest political folly to
persist, tinder tlie circumstances, in pushing
such u measure to the front u the test of
fealty to tho movement.
If the People's Party wants toexhlhlt on
act of statesmanlike wisdom, it will "swop
olf" the sub-treasury scheme for a prohibi
tion plunk in javor of an issue of treasury
notes, hnsed on gold and silver bullion, is
sued by direct payments for government
exponscs, in tlie proportion of J1 in notes to
oach $1 of bullion, until there is $50 per
capita put in circulation. Voice."
Now, Mr. Kditor, I don't know that we
stand in need of so much gutuitous udvice
either from the Demoorut or the Voice. We
think they will have enough to do to "pad
dle their own ounoe," between now and tlie
next election. There are one thousund
saloon men and whiskeyites, five hundred
politicians and lawyers, waiting and onx
iotifl, with eyes and mouth wide open to
give us all kinds of advice free of eluirge.
The Orcgouhui, like a big flop-oarod hound,
is yelping on our track, and has set a whole
pack of little tlcie papers to barking at us
like a set of snapping cnyotos.
Now then, solicitude for our welfu.ro is a'l
well enough when needed, but we don't
JuBt need it yet; when we got in a knot-hole
like the prohibitionists,, or got loaded down
with obnoxious hills and measures, cheat,
wrong or defraud the public like tlie demo
crats and republicans; thon we will need
help to unload and will perhaps call on
them. Besides we don't know whether the
Harrison administration is going to leave
any crumbs for us to cat, the treusury is
empty and tho government is wanting to
borrow money now to pay its debts) or
rather to tho salaries of the othtiuls and to
pension agents for ouch and all of the old
parties. Kvery man that ever hollowed for
the dear old flag and can swear all right, Is
now getting a pension, to the disgrace of de
cency and honesty.
Thedemocrats and republicans have stolen
nearly every thing In forty-two Mates, ex
cept tlie penitentiaries, and I goes, they
would have stolen them, but they wanted
them for a homestead by and by, when their
evil deeds come to light.
Lebanon's honorable Mayor "struck the
nail on tlie head," when he said, "the farm
ers don't need our advice." We are going
to get there Eli, with both feet, "and don't
you forget it."
My wife says formed "quit writing for
the Exprkhb or some of those politicians
will have me stealing sheep, or straying off
with another woman, or some other devil
ment" Now says I, "wife, tbe Alliance
folks don't talk about their memders, like
the church members of Lebanon, and be
sides there Is more honest, old fashioned re
ligion in this thing than half the meeting
houses, and as for hypocrites, we ha'n't got
any. More again,
Haying about done.
Trout biting vigorously.
Mr. Shepherd left for California last week.
There are a number of bears running
loose here that need corralling and Mr Guy
lord and party expect to try their hand.
Mr. Boone has a very fine cougar on his
ranch that he would like to see some of the
brag cougar dogs turned loose after.
Mr. Letsinger has such a heavy crop of
hay this year that he had hard work curing
it on the ground it was inowed off of.
More emigrants wante 1 here to clear up
this fine bottom land and put it in crops;
there is room here for flirty more families.

A heavy mist hid the sun all of Monday
forenoon, and on Tuesday we had several
hard showers. Whether or not it will injure
the grain that has been cut reuiaiHit tohe
Several threshing outfits were ready to
begin Ofticrations, but the rain will delay
that kind of work for a day or two.
We visited Lebanon last week and enjoy
ed meeting many old friends, and making
some new ones. While there we went to
the pajrer mill, and were greatly pleased
with what we saw, and the kindly treat
ment we received.
Mr Trunk O'Neil led the wuy through the
mill, explaining all difficult points, a court
esy that was highly appreciated by all of
Mrs. Hanrahan, of Lebanon, visited Mrs.
G. C. Moon and otlierlricnds here hist week.
Misses Luna Crabtree and Vina Prine, of
Albany Prairie, visited the family of Marion
Crabtree over Sunday.
Miss Ora Crabtree was down from Leba
non on Monday.
Dr. Booth is now attending the family of
the late Jasper Crabtree. The mother and
three children are quite low, but we hope
for better things.
Llllie Cvnbtroe, aged 10 years, daughter of
the late Jasper Crabtree was burried Mon
day ut tlie Franklin Butte Cemetery. A
long procession followed her remains to
their last resting place, The quivering lips
and flowing eyes of ell present told better
than words could have done, how dearly
she was loved and now sadly she will be
missed. The many beautiful flower pieces
prepared by loving hands, bear testimony
to the fact that we can look through the
gloom and darkness of the grave, up to the
beauties and brightness of the "Better
Things" that have been prepared for the
pure and good.
The funeral services were conducted by
Rev. O. 8. Hanleiter, and his eumest words
made a deep Impression on all who heard
The following named young ladies uctcd

Monday, In Portland, the body of
George Ogle was found In tho Willam
ette about half a mile below the North
Pacific Lumbering mills. His clothing
was found neatly folded up on the bank
of the river. He was a man of much
mental capacity, a prominent Metho
dist and a cultured man in every way.
He was tbe victim of an unhappy mar
riage, and had been recently addicted
to drink. It la supposed be committed
ulclde. He was utterly penniless.
It is rumored that achange will soon
be made In the Oregon Pacific's time
table. By the change one train will
start from Yaqulna Bay and run
straight through to Green Basin, and
the other train will start from the front
and ran through to the Bay. By this
change the engineer now running to
the Bay will have his day's run short
ened about 10 miles. AU trains will
then noon at Albany.
This is from the Ban Francisco Bulle
tin, and is good advice to Oregon peo
ple also: "Now is the time to be extra
careful about fire. Tbe country is as
dry as tinder. Two villages have been
almost burnt up within a day or two,
and minor blazes are reported from va
rious parts of tbe state. Fields and
forests are in a condition to ignite with
half a chance, and are burning lu many
places. The number of campers in
various localities adds to the danger."
Tbe contractor of the canal will com
mence work on next Monday, when he
will employ a certain amount ef teams
and men and as fast as he can open up
the work will employ all good men
offering. He says he let station work to
men that want work that way, and
will furnish them tools to do the work.
The newly elected clerk of the school
land board, Geo. W. Davis, took the
oath of office Monday and Immediately
took charge of tbe affairs of tbe office.
Napoleon Davis, the old clerk, will re

he gets familiar with tbe office routine.
A large wood pile was set on fire,
just this side of Walker's station, either
by a passing train or tramps, Sunday
afternoou, burning out the ties in the
railroad track for quite a distance, and
warping the iron rails. When the
afternoon local reached that point the
employes had a lively time lighting the
lire, using two nut cars from CreBwcll
to haul water for the puipose. The
train succeeded lu getting across tbe
break at 7 p. m.

ing in tbe Bantium has reached us.

A writer in the Saleiri Statesman
from Waterloo says, among other
things: The soda is excellent. Clear,
cool and sparkling, it bursts from the
rocks that have withstood tbe wear ef
years of the grand old Santiaru. Here
we are only one-half hour's drive from
Sodaville, another country village
with a future. During the past year a
feud has existed between the two
places, similar to the one between
Minneapolis and St. Paul, but good
will prevails and like those places, we
expect to see the two united. We
seek to advertise no place simply
write that others may go and do like
wise, foi here we buve had more pleas
ure than we have-experienced for
years. Reader, let this sink deep into
your tired brain, if you desire a "time'
come on here if health here is the
place if ;reet come, Parties who
wield the brush will find ft golden
opporluuity for sketching, an old mill
in ruins, gigantic boulders, catnructs,
mountain scenery, etcetera.
