tightly agutnat thu possibility ol

All to ulm is bluck that savors uoi
of IiIhowu political luiutehdkl. All

So, 'from this nnliquatpd stand
point our frieud Noltner discussed
the Farmers' Alliance movement.
The only benefit or result he can see
from it is the advantage tout may
accrue to democracy. He declares
that thedemocr.it party has always
advocated just such principles, Willi
a few exceptions, as thu Alliance
imw declares fur:
It has been thedrmnerncy which
has been the foe of thu usurien, ui.cl
lo-duy 111" funnels, pruduceis mid

nearly the identical principles which
have lieen the wnle'iv..Ml of 'everx

Of what ue for any new move
ment in politics? There is nothing
new under the xliticul heavens Unit
tbe democrat party has nut already
advocated for a cutnry ! '1'hls is
very rich elephant broth, indeed,
and all yo truly loyal please shut
your eyes and swallow.
But there is richer still to come.
Hear the sage advice of our most po
tent, grave aud reverend senier:
Democrats have no cause to Join
new organizations to find udviH-.ties
of these principles. 'I heir pany has
always stood by them. If repub
lican farmers cannot come to I lie
demociutic fold, let them seek relief
under the cover of a new name but
with the same ol-jects iu view as

zatiou under the name of the Farm

a fraudulent claim. Tuke thu alli

"You fulkssl'ould repeal your lux

Mr. Manning has noticed that the
citizen of Salem preferres to place
his money "where there was no
question ot his taxes." That is
what capital seeks todouveiywhere.

owner of moiiey, credits, mortgages,

Is the key to Ihe situation. Theiu is
a growing fcupplcioti, baud upon
the greater intelligence of the

no pretence to an absolu'o represen

farce. The people uie looking for
