THE ALLIANCE - INDEPENDENT.
Wind 31ills and Politics.
The following .letter will b3 interest
ing from several points of view. In
tho first plac3 it gives a glimpse of
political changes in the south. In the
next place it shows how the southern
delegites to the Omaha convention,
used their eyes while they were in the
west. And again it shows' tha western
yfirois can get business if they will put
their "ads"' in The Alliance-Inde-
The letter was shown us by Mr.

Manufacturing company, in this city.
Here is tho letter:
Wkightsvjlle, Ga.. July 19, 1892.
Tho Chase Mf'g Co..
Gentlemen: Your ad. has been
noticed in the Alliance-Independent
handed to me by Dr. A. I.
Haines who was a delegate to the Ouia-
' ha convention. So you c :n readily see
I am an Alliance man and people's par
ty to tho backbone. But it s pos lble I
am a little premature. Your company
may be "republican or democratic;. Well
in telling you how I got you. d. I
simply turned it in as a joke, bu I am
what I am and have said it. Aiid I am
glad to say I believe the smth. wi 1 go
people's party. You never saw such an
increase since tho 'Omaha convention
and the glorious o d wes: can rely upon
the south. We are for the upbuilding
of the people tho working men as well
as the money iron. That is tho trouble.
The old parties have long ago laidisido
all thought of the poor and legislate
entirely for tho money powers. But a
bright day is dawning and you will see
this government come and the poor will
But that is not b 'siness. You do
not want to hear- mo talk politics. I
have thought about this a great deal
we have no wind mills in our county,
but i believe there will be in a few
months all over tne county. Our dele
gates are telling about seeing them out
west and I heard a number of people
sdy they wanted them.
I have looked at the cut of your mUls
as shown in the Alliance-Independent
and I know can sell a great many
in the county.
Now so far as your mil1 is concerned,
if it is as cheap as any good mill, you
could send me a s unple mill. I could
put it up on my place and exhibit it to
the people as they come to town acd
take orders for same, and deliver about
November or October or September us
they may desire. 1 believe I can sell
forty or iifty mills by fall."
