and that without the use of banking
corporations; a just, equitable and effi

People and not to exceed 20 per cent to

ury plan of the farmers alliance or aome

charge 'of its obligation for public im
provements. We demand a free and unlimited coin
age of silver.
We demand that the amount of circu
lating medium be speedily increased to
not less tnan eau per capita.
We demand a graduated income tax
We believe that the money of the
country should be kept as much as pos
sible in the hands of the DeoDle. and we
demand that all state and national reve
nue shall be limited to the necessary ex
pense of the government, economically
and honestly administered.
We demand that postal savings banks
be established by the government for
the sate deposit for the earaings of the
people and to facilitate exchange.
Tne land, including all the natural
sources of wealth, is tne heritage of all
the people and should not be monopo
lized for special purposes, while alien
ownership ot land should be prohibited.
All lands now held by railroads and
other cor poiations in excess of their
natural needs, and all lanas now owned
by aliens should be reclaimed by the
government and held for actual settlers
Transportation being a means of ex
cfcange and a public necessity, the gov
ernment should own and operate the
railroads in the interest of the people.
The telegraph and telephone systems
being another necessity lor tne trans
mission of news, should be owned and
operated by the government in the in
terest of the people.
We demand that the government
issue legal tender notes to pay the
union soldiors the difference between
the price of the depreciated money in
which he was paid in and gold.
Jtesolttd, That we hail the conference
as the consummation ot uerfect union
of hearts and hands of all the sections
of our common country. The men who
wore the gray and the tneu who wore
the blue are here to eUinguisb the last
smouldering embers of civil war in the
tears of joy ot a happy and united peo
ple, and we agtee to cany the stars and
stripes forward ever to tht highest point
of national greatness.'
Over the liquor question there was a
protrao'.ed struggle. A luiuority report
signed by M1k Willatd, Dr. Fish editor
and read by Mmij Willard, demanding
no sex uminciion id sunrage, and pro
hibition, precipitated the dbcusatun.

instructing the delegation to present the
name of Senator Hill there was pro
longed applause. John It. Fellows
moved that Senator Hill be invited to
address the convention, and that com
mittee of three be appointed to escort
him to the hall. The chairman appoint
ed Messrs. Fellows, Adams and Man

the next president of the United States,
The introduction was the signal for re
newed cheering. The senator read from
manuscript a carefully prepared speech.
It is said the plan of campaign of the
provisional state committee, so tar as

of Democratic voters throughout the
state to a pledge against Hill and lay
this monster pledge before the Chicago

New York, Feb. 23. Newspaper
comment on the convention at Albany
is generally to the effect that Hill will
find it difficult to keep his forces to
gether until the Chicago convention,
and that he has not improved his
chances in other states by the proceed
ings. The Sun, Hill's principal suppor
ter, makes no comment on the conven
tion. Falmer tor Cleveland.

Bexsos, Ari., Feb. The announce-
ment was made by a prominent Mexi
can official of Sonora that the new sur
vey of the international boundary line
between Mexico and the United States,
would throw at least sixty miles of
American territory nnuer Mexican Jn

nearly all that portion of Arizona below

cludes the towns of Nogales, Tombstone,

Bend and Yuma in Arizona, and
San Diego, Cal besides the entire line
of the Southern Pacitio in Arizona, the
United States Mititary reservation at
Fort Hauchuca. and millions ot dollar'
worth of mining property. The state
ment is considered entirely too sweeping
and is not generally credited. Captain
Fiuley and Major Logan, U. S. A., are
now at Fort Bliss, Texas, with two
companies of soldiers and a corps of

Washington, Feb. 23. Speaking of
tbe wool tariff bill unanimously agreed
upon by the Democratio members of
the ways and means committee of the

If the bill become a law the effect will
be to place th lowest tax on articles

thia bill the pool man' blanket
will b taxed S3 and 85 per cent.
aa against 70.03 aud 110 per cent-,
under the McKiuley act. Carpet will be
taxed .10 per cent., a against an average
of over tiO per cent, under tbe law enacted
by the last Republican congress. The
