Beport of Treasurer.
In making my report as Treasurer, it
ean be said iu explanation of the decrease
of receipts from last year, that includ
ing western Alliances organized pay
ing only initiation fees, , nearly one
thousand alliances did not report dues
until after October 1, 181, while none
of the alliances reported dues for the
quarter ending December 80, 1890, a
period covered by this year's report. In
noting the expenditures we must bear
In mind, in comparing with the last re
port, that this covers a period of thirteen
months, while the former only included
ed eleven months, or from January 2,
1890. to December 6, 1890.

Moved and supported that this report

Bro. Allen Root, stock agent, then
made a short report.
REPORT OF LIVE STOCK AGENT.
As live stock agent we beg leave to
submit the following:
The year of 1891 was a year of disas
ter. During the seven months ending
Nov. 8C, 1890 we had returned to tho
Alliance shippers of this state $580.73.
The company with which the agent
worked had returned to the shippers
$52,881.77 and declared a dividend of
B0 per cent on commissions received.
At this tho buying part of the exchanges
at Chicago, Kansas City, Sauth Omaha
and East St Louis became alarmed at
the volume of business which a company
that proposed to do the fair thing by
the sh'pper was securing. - It had in
creased so rapidly that in a shcrt
timo the seller wight have some
thing to say in 'lixiog the price of
stock. The right of tne buyers to
fix the price the "big four" did cot
propose to surrender-without a despe
rate struggle. The question, was, had
the shipper the right to select whoever
he saw tit to sell his stock, and to do
what seemed best to him with the com
missions without consulting the stock
exchanges, either to the buying or sell
Inn oart of them. Tho exchanges said.
no, you are a rebate concern and vou
must stop it or stop business. The
courts were appealed to and the ex
changes were sustained, and the com
pany that sent back a per cent of the
commissions was compelled to go out of
business, which they did on the 14th of
Dec. last, with $21 ,080 behind with the
expense of law suits and the falling of!
business. Now the remedy for this is
In a new court that can tell a burthen
some trust that leans heavily upon the
people when they see it.
At tho wimfe up of the American
Live Stock Commission Co., in order to
keep the trade that the AMiance coope
' ration bad built up from going into the
Aands of those who had fought tbe re
turn of part cf the commissions that are
excessive we organized tho stock firm
of Allen Root & Co. We stand here as
representative of co-operation, to assist
that great band of farmers who are fast
earning to transact their own business,
and win continue unless the legislature
will pass laws to allow us to do without
question that which the courts have
said we could not. that is to send
back the excess of a reasonable commis
sion. Now we ask tho members of the
Alliance to stand together in this as in
all other things.
