Tho Farmers' Alliance of Kansas has lie
gun the organization of a trust. Its author
Is Frank McOrath, president of the statu
alliance. In a conversation with him thu
other day lie clearly outlined Its object.
"We proposo to co nt rid absolutely thu
markets of farm products hy controlling
their sale. Now I daro nay you think this
a foolishly absurd scheme, but It's practi
cable, and therefore possible. Through our
county Alliance agents, who will get thu
knowledge u the Mih-nllianccs, wu can
know of uvery bushel of giniu and of uvery
steer, sheep or hog to be marketed. Wu
will know of those who can hold their
products and of those who have to oll Im
mediately, For thu products of thu latter
wu will luivo district Htor.igo waiohnuM's,
and wu will sell only when thu market is
such as to yield n prollt to tho producer.
"llesltles Kansas wu luixu Missouri, Iowa
and Nebraska ready to Join in tliu under
taking at once, mid I haven't n doubt
that wu will ultimately set uru thu co-operation
of all thu grr it ii'Mlcultural states.

Fort Helllngliam, Wash., when, In 18."iO,
the boundary troubles between tho United
States and England arosu. Tho Hritish
governor occupied San Juan island, the
koy to the northwest archipelago, with 0110
company of Infantry Captain Pickett anil
Lieutenant Forsyth seized the Island, and
when tho English forces attempted it laud
ing repulsed them. Promoted to first lieu
tenant lu March, 1801, Forsyth accepted 11
change of regiment to lie near the seat of
war. After the battle of Chickmunugu ho
wns breveted major, and In 1801 was made
bruvet brigadier general of volunteers for
meritorious services. Ho bail taken part
in over fifty battles.
When Sheridan iosu to thu rank of lieu
teniiutceueral Forsyth hec-unu his military
secretary, and accompanied him on Ids tour
through Europe, witnessing the Invest
ment of Purisnndthub.ittlciof Gravelotte,
Hcaumoiit ami Sedan. On his return to
the United States lu 1871 ho was sent to thu
noi t Invest to take part lu the famous
Sioux expedition. After that hu Joined
thotlU Mon of thu Pacific. The Hauiiock
Indiana in Montana needed discipline, and
l'orsytli was detailed to emu for them. In
command of eight companies ho took thu
field and won n complete victory.
The peoplu of Kansas still lemeinlier the
servlco rendered the state by Forsyth lu
1808, when, upon tho outbreak of the Chey
enncs, tho western binder was threatened
witli Indian butchery. Forsyth was then
on staff duty, ami with a hastily gathered
company of scouts crossed tho statu from
Fort Wallace and met thu redskins on a
branch of thu Republican river. Surround
ed by nearly 000 savages, under Roman
Nose, thu llttlo band fought and won ono
of thu most terrific battles in thu history
of frontier warfare. Indian illiiciplluu was
so hroken that rorsytlrs engagement is
sometimes called "tho last charge of thu
Sheridan next appointed him inspector
of cavalry, anil lu June, 1880, hu was made
colonel of thu famous Seventh cavalry. In
December of last year tliu Sioux outbreak
called for Immediate action. Colonel For
syth with his regiment, and Colonel Cap
ron's battery E of the light artillery, left
FOrt Riley, Kan., for Pinu Ridge. The
story of tho maneuvers in that vicinity is
too recent, to need retelling. Colonel For
syth's report of thoalTalrat Wounded Knee
simply said that liu had attempted to dis
arm tho bucks, that a hot light of half an
hour ensued, and that his soldiers obeyed
orders. He inadu no defense whatuver,
and thu court uf Inquiry as to his removal
decided that ho acted wisely, and the sec
retary of war complimented him and or
dered him returned to his position at thu
head of IiIh regiment.
Colonel Forsyth is a man of flno personal
appearance; his soldierly hearing and snow
white hair maku him n marked figure lu
any gathering. Hu Is a genial conversa
tionist, with an inexhaustible fund of
reminiscence and anecdote, llu is an ex
cellent disciplinarian, anil ids regiment
shows it. Ho commands at Fort Riley, and
takes a personal pride in tliu magnificent
surroundings. Thu reservation consists of
22,000 acres, nml Is being beautified by trees

has In the past year spent about &00,000 011
buildings and Improvements, while S700,
000 more Is scon to be laid out.
Colonel Forsyth, it is thought probable,
will soon be promoted to 11 brigadier gen
eralship in the regular army. That hu is
not without honor in the stacu where hu
lias been ttatioued for thu past six years is
proved by thu unanimous adoption by thu
Kansas legislature of thu following reso
