word of honor tlint such was not the

turn to Providence from Denver with
Mrs. Burnahy's remains he hml drawn a
check on her funds for ft, 000, the dcietor

contrary to the expectations of the de

with the recommendations of their sub

and concluded unanimously that the
bovcott was a failure. The Alton

' A Strident Voios From Kentucky.
Avenstoke, Ky.. Dec. 14 1891
Henry U. Pickens, McCook Neb.
Dear Sir: Your favor of the 8thinst.
to hand, and to say that I was pleased
but illy expresses my feelings.
We, of Kentucky, who voted the Peo
ple's Party ticket last year are as de
termined in our opposition to the old
parties as you can be in the west. In
fact, we hare no choice but to go on,
for when we started for the promised
land, we burned all brulgos behind us,
and I assure you we have no desire to
wade the Red Sea of humiliation in or
der to feast from the flesh pots of Egypt
in the camp of Democracy.
We have fought our first battle here,
and I may be pardoned perhaps for
saying that I think we made a credit
able showing under the circumstances.
You may say to yonr people in Neb.,
that we of the south are in the light to
stay and that there are hundreds of
thousands all over tbe south who are
ouly waiting for the action of the Feb
ruary conference to mase a bold stroke
for liberty. No one thing has done
more to develop the new party spirit in
the south, than the fusion of the two
old parties in your state and in Kan
sas. The indignation is widespread and
universal; both parties here are split
open in consequence of it. And even if
the St. Louis conference does not de
clare for independent action, our vote
next year will be three times tnat ol tbis
les, we are tola on every nana tnat
our niovemeat ia a scheme to disrupt
the Democratic party of the south,
while th tote of the west will swing in
to line for the Republicans.
But the crack of the party whip has
lost its letrors, and next year the left
wing of the money power wil" find its
bands full, for we have felt some of the
evil, of which you complain, not so
much perhaps of the mortgage curse,
but no state in the union is more cor
poration ridden than Ky.
If our farmer legislatures could have
given the corporations a titie in fee
simple to the whole state, they would
undoubtedly have done so. Our people,
however, in the last election asserted
their power to rule in the adoption of
tho new constitution by a majority of
138,000, although it was opposed by tbe
combined forces of railroads, banks.
water companies, gas companies, town
companies and mining companies. Ana
should I he Feb. convention declare for
independent action, the old parties will
not be in it, in Ky. But whothor they
do it or not. we will give them a hard
tight for supremacy.
Very Resp'y Yours,
W. P. Marsh.
