Again we urge alliance men not to
abandon their sub alliances because of
the abuses of power practiced by anv
of their state officers. Nsthiner would
please the selfish men who want to use
the alliance organization to advance
their own interests, more than to have
the true patriotic members of the order
abandon It. That would leave nobody
in the sub-alliances but those who

You see that advertising contract be

traitorous conspiracy against the life
and reputation of Ibis paper.
Was the Alliance Leader started as an
honorable enterprise? Was it the pur

worthy paper on their own merits? Or
was it their Intention to prey like
pirates on the reputation and patron

This Is a question for every honorable
independent to answer?
Remember the time and circumstan
ces of the tew paper's birth. Remem

Currie, oneof the advertising solicitors

advertisement Mr. Parks informed
him that be had just closed a contract
ior an advertisement with an agent of
the Alliance Publishing Company. Mr.
Currie expressed some surprise, and
Mr. Parks showed him the contract, a
copy of which is printed herewith.
Mr. Parks informed Mr. Currie that
one F. W. Ferris had called on him and
solicited an advertisement representing
himself as an agent of the Alliance
Publishing Co., and that be had given
the advertisement with that under-
Mr. Kdgar A. Murray, secretary of

in tbe contract blank, and just below
them appeared Mr. Ferris' signature.
Further investigation leads us to be
lieve that all the advertising contracts
made by tbe new firm have been made on
When Mr. Thompson moved out of
the Alliance building, it appears tbat
ne carried away a quantity of these
blank contracts, without tbe know!
edge or consent of any officer of this
company. This blank is identical with
tbose used in tnis tftice during the first
nan oi last year.
As convincing evidence that this ad
vertisement wbs secured under positive
misrepresentation, observe tbat this
advertisement was to begin with the
issue of March 30, 1893. This was the
uate of issue of the ALLIANCE-1 NDE
PfcNDENT, but not of the Alliunce
Since the discovery of this contemp
tible fraud, both Thompson and Ferris
have been doing some very vigorous
squirming. Lac a seems Inclined to lay
the Maine on the other. Mr. Thompson
tries to make it appear that he was in
the habit of scratching out the words
"accepted Al lance Publlshln? Co.."
and writing in the name of the new
firm. No doubt such a change will be
found In all the contracts on file in
their office. But when wa tbat
scratching done? Why was it not done
before the contracts were made out and
signed? No trick of changing these
contracts after the exposure was made
will lessen the infamy of the proceed
ing. We feel like saying this much for
Ferris: He certainly is less to blame
than bis emp oyers. They furnished
him the blank contracts, accepted the
same when filled uu and expect to col
lect the money for advertisements thus
fraudulently obtained. Ferris is noth
ing more than an agent, and his em
ployers are responsible for his acts.
What is more, we challenge Thompson
hlmsel! to deny that he has secured ad
vertisements on the same contract
We have consulted good legal
authorities who inform us that
Burrows and Thompson can
bo arrested and convicted for
obtaining money under false pre
tenses if they collect pay for thes ad
vertisements. We have not yet taken
any steps to prosceute them. We are
waiting further developments.
N. B: The advertisement obtained
under this contract appeared in the
Alliance Leader last week.
