Letter From Bro. Floyd.
Editor Alliance; Dear Sir and
Buo.: I was appointed as a committee
to ask you to publish a full and com
plete history of the origin and originat
ors of the so-called "single tax" system.
Wu do not desire to pass from the
grand old honest democratic advalorum
system without we are sure of a better
one, and as for Grove Alliance No. 4")6,
we do not intend to do so without
knowing what we are doing. I tell you
our little squad arc learning fast. We
are reading and thinking for ourselves,
and are determined in future to only be
led by principle and that which we con
ceive to be right and just. "We have
".just passed through one of the hottest
.contested campaigns for treasurer in
this county since its organization, the
issue of which was "Shall the republi
cans elect the treasurer, loan the coun
ty funds to banks, they re-loan our mon
ey to us at two and three per cent a
'month, and pocket the proceeds; or,
will we elect a good honest farmer and
a democrat who will deposit it in the

"walked up head' Some here claim
this a a democratic victory; others
curse t he Farmers' Alliance; but I tell
-you that republicans ad as much to do
- in the matter as any one. The issue was
-;o plain that all who run coiild read,
and the old rings "were rent in twain,"
ami the little bantam and the two old
"f.ens of Aurora -who tinkered the ballot
box to count in their pets are hiding
their heads somewhere yet, and not a
.Tieek feather left. I like the tone of
Mr. Siebbins' letter from Buffalo coun
ty. One thing at a time should be our
motto, and draw the lines so plain that
it will cause the deaf to hear, the lame
to walk, the blind to see, and even dem
ocratic and republican lepers will be
l titrd that all parties are growing
tired, and are getting very sick of mo

Kditor Alliance: On another
sheet I paste the latest land plank of
the K. of li. In it is this phrase
"Occupancy and use should be the
' only title to the possession of land."
. The land question, (the exact how
to handle it) is not so easy to define
as the money question, and the above
'does not help it much.
"A graduated tax on excessive hold
ings", has some meaning at least,
" still it does not define the way to get at it.
We shall probably have to leave de
tails for statesmen we shall select to
, I hope there will be a harmonious
joining of hands and hearts at St. Louis.
And that their line ok action agreed
upon will not be foggy or vague.
The Knights evidently use the
Oeorge and Pentecost misty phrases
"thinking to get strength from those
sources, but in my opinion more will be
- lost to them than gained. It may be a
ruse of the money power to push the
cry and mist before the people, and
keep a set of shallow men screeching
for something they cannot define.
TlM Ml'LTI plication ok issues is

EMIES TAKE TO DIVIDE AND CON

There is no strength in the George
movement worth counting. Pentecost
left him for something no better. The
most of the '-single taxers" 1 have seen
are unable to define their position.
Do not oppose them but offer a
clka ii and definite platform on land,
money and transporation, and you will
"have them. Yours Truly,
When Bro. Hunt wrote the above he
had not seen the latest declaration of

declaration of the Alliance and X. of L.

Letter from Mrs. Cooley of Chase Co.
Mr. Editor: I thought I must tell
you something about Chase Co and our
Alliance, as I scarcely ever see an article
from here in jour paper.
Chase is a live county and growing
stronger every day. We have a good
Alliance here, one at Lamar, and oth
ers being organized. I feel that there is
a work for women to do in the Alliance.
I believe we can put our shoulders to
the wheel and help to roll this great
burden off of the downtrodden Farmers.
Some think the Alliance is no place for
women, but Brother Powers told me
that every farmer's wife should belong
to the Alliance. So I jorned and am glad
I did. If we abide by our constitutions
we will become better men and women.
We have three candidates to be initi
ated at our next meeting.
We take your paper and think it is
the paper every farmer should read.
Two of the brothers read cur paper and
said they would try and subscribe for

THE COLLEGES AND TEMPERANCE.
BY PRES. C. A. BLAXC'HARI.
Some time since I addressed to the
presidents of one hundred of our lead
ing colleges, East, West, North and
South, a circular letter containing the
jfntsT. Do you believe total abstin
ence to be the duty of Christians and
patriots at this time and in this coun
try? Second. Do you believe in the pro
hibition by law of the manufacture,
importation and sale for drinking pur
poses, of intoxicating" liquors.-'
TnniD. If you favor the principle of
prohibition, do you think that the end
can be attained more easily by a separ
ate political organization, or by inllu
ence exerted upon existing parties?
Fouiitit. Do you favor the instruc
tion now called for by law in our com
mon schools concerning the effects of
alcoholic and narcotic poisons on the
FrFTn. Do you think that the col
leges of our nation are doing their duty
in regard to this matter? If not, what
change can you suggest?
I have received replies from thirty-six
presidents of colleges who are'not found
in anv one part of the nation", but are
very widely distributed. From Oregon,
Mississippi, Ohio, Massachusetts and
Maine, with many other intervening
States, replies have come. It is encour
aging to see that the gentlemen who
have replied are almost without excep
tion in favor of total abstinence and le
gal prohibition. Of all those who have
replied only four think that total ab
stinence' is not for them a duty. Of
those who believe in total abstinence I
think every one believes in legal prohi
bition. As wa3 to have been expected,
the third question divides them quite
widely, twelve holding that a separate
political organization is the better meth
od of seeking to accomplish the desired
result, fourteen holding that the pres
ent political organizations will secure
it if we use the proper endeavors, and
others expressing no opinion. Respect
ing the fourth question there is a gen
eral unanimity of opinion. A very few
say that they disapprove the instruction
called for by law in our common schools.
On the fifth question there has evi
dently been little or no thought, most
of those who have kindly replied to my
communication expressing no opinion
in regard to the question at all. A few
think that our colleges are not doing
what they might in regard to this sub
ject. A few believe that they are doing
all they can do.
It will probably be interesting to
know the answers of a few representa
tive men in detail, and I submit here
with some of the replies.
Pres. Joseph Cummings, of the
Northwestern University, Evanston,
111., says: "I believe total abstinence is
the duty of Christians and patriots at
this lime and in this country, and a tall
times and in all countries. In answer
to your second question. I believe in
prohibition by law of the manufacture
and sale, for drinking purposes, of in
toxicating liquors. In answer to your
third question. I believe the cause of
prohibition can be best advanced, and
the end sought more easily attained bv
a separate political party. Fourth, I
favor the instruction now called for by
law in our common schools, concerning
the effect of alcohol and narcotic poi
sons. Fifth, 1 do not think that all
colleges are doing their duty in regard
to this cause of inohibition, and the
great remedy will be to secure such a
change of opinion by appropriate influ
ences as will lead college officers to see
their duty. I do not think any special
legislation. is called for, relative to col
leges. Pres. Sherril, of Bethel College, Mc-
Kenzie, Tenn.. says
first question, I do.
"In reply to the
Second, yes, by all
means. Third, I think that it can be at
tained only by separate political action.
The two existing parties are controlled
by liquor interests, therefore a vote for
either party is a vote for liquor.
Fourth, yes, by all means. Fifth , some

Prof. A. B. Hyde, vice-chancellor ot
the University of Denver, Colorado,

ond, we sa;? yes. To the third, we say
tnat in our state we can now see no
hope except in building up a third par
ty, at least to try to make it such as
one of the others will respect and adopt,
i. e., take prohibition upon itself with
such reinforcement as prohibition may
bring. The fourth 1 meet with an em
phatic affirmative. As for the fifth, I
fear we are not over-zealous, but I
think the cause progresses best when
we let our students manage it. Their

Mrs Ada Bittenbender is pushing the
work of enrolling the persons believing
in national prohibition. Fifty thous
and signatures are registered and can
vass is going forward encouragingly.
An anti-prohibition journal has been
investigating the state of public opinion
in Kansas in regard to re-submission.
The following answers received to
questions sent indicate little desire to
re-open the question:
I am unalterably and eternally oppos
ed to re-submission, because prohibition
in this state has decreased crime, mis
ery and want, and has increased intelli
gence, home comforts and human hap
iness. It has left money in the pocket
of the laboring man Saturday night,
closed the door of temptation on the
street to the young man, and knocked
the rags out of the window-panes.
Congressman Peters of Eight ir
He-submission is the worst piece of
political nonsense that, has been pro
posed to the people of Kansas for years.
There may be a few counties in the state
in favor of it, but practically one hun
dred counties against six. JAW Ady,

JL protest against the liquor manufac
turers and dealers of the country dic
tating what this state shall or shall not
do. The only possible ground for this
demand for re-submission on the pre

from the neglect or refusal of officers in
in a number of counties to do their
sworn duty and enforce the law." Ex

A meeting was held on the 7th inst.
to form a ncn-partisan prohibition
league among the students of the state
university. The object is to help carry
the amendment, and it is a very fitting
way for students, for whose education
the state is providing to thus show
their patriotism and justify the out-lay
the state has made in their behalf.
