To Every Lover
of the People's Cause!
Dear Reader :We are working for you and yours. And that
Dour work may be made effective to the utmost will you not help us
in our efforts to reach and educate the people? We have no means
at command to send a canvasser to your neighborhood, and if we
had, no stranger could do as successful work as one who knows the
people. We must depend on voluntary help to advertise and intro
' duce our paper, and we appeal to you for the cause' sake, to help
'us reach as many as possible in the circle of your acquaintance.
It need not be an expense to you. It need not take much of your
time. And by telling the truth about the Populist state paper and
handing copies to your friends you can easily induce them to sub
scribe. Is not this your part, your propaganda work? That we
may know our helpers and communicate with them we ask that you
sign and return the appended pledge, to do simply what you can f or
TnE Alliance-Independent in the way of getting subscribers.
ALLIANCE PUBLISHING CO.
Knowing that in the great impending conflict with the money
power we must have votes to win; and that to gain votes we must
get the people to read the truth; and that this cannot be done un
) less those now aroused bring one or more of our papers to the hands
and attention of their neighbors; I, therefore, freely and gladly
promise to do my share, and will exert myself to secure at least
five new subscribers for The Alliance-In ent within the
next ten days, sending in subscriptions as I am able to get them at

Dear Bat: In my judgment The
ALLIANCE-Independent is improving

number. I specially commend editorial
articles entitled " The Cry of the foor,"

HUNDREDS OF ARMED MEN ON
A MAN HUNT.
LOOKING FOR TWO NEGRO BRUTES.

Pre of Charge.
- SpBfsoriXLD, Mo., Jan. 28. Hun
dreds of well armed men from this city
and all the towns along the St. Louis
and San Francisco railroad as far west
as Monett have since yesterday after
noon been searching for two negroes,
who are certain to be lynched the mo
ment they are captured.
Yesterday morning Mrs. Jacques,
wife of a Oerman farmer living three
miles west of Verona, and her 12-year-old
daughter went to Verona to attend
church. After the morning services
the child was sent home on foot, the
mother deciding to stay in town for a
funeral. Half a mile from town, two
negroes seized the child, tied her to a
tree, fastened her feet and placed a
gag in her mouth. Then the brutes
horribly assaulted her.
One wore a stiff Derby hat and the
other a black slouch, a light coat and
old breeches with a square patch
on one knee.
The crime is supposed to have been
committed about 1 o'clock, but the
poor child was not found until three
hour later, when she suceeeded in
biting the gag in two and attracting
Abe Zinin by her cries. She could not
walk and is in a critical condition.
One of the brutes was seen coming
this way by several persons, but there
was no trace of him beyond that place.
Every man about Venora is out
hunting for the fiends, the hardware
store of that place having given all
their cartridges to those who wanted
to hunt the negroes.
Lynched on the Seen of III Crlni.
Knoxvillb, Tenn., Jan. 23. At
Jellico, on the Kentucky-Tennessee
line yesterday, George Gamble, a
negro about 85 years of age, brutally
assaulted the 11-year old child of A. li.
Francis, and fled toward Pleasant
View, Kv., followed by a mob which
captured him at that point. He was
taken back to Jelico, where he was
fully identified by his little victim,
dragged to the scene of his crime and
strung up just at nightfalL
THE COUCHLIN DEFENSE ON.
A Doctor Cat Doubt on the Came of
Cronln' Death Reporter Impeached.
Chicago, Jan. 23. Attorneys for the
state in the Coughlin trial to-day
asked for a reopening of their side of
the case, in order that they could prove
that tne horse which Reporter Beck
showed to Frank Scan lan was the
same horse be showed to Mrs. Conklin,
and which she identified as the one
that drove Cronin to his death on May
4. No objection was made and Alder
man Epstein was called and testified
to having rented Dinan's white horse
and buggy to put on exhibition in his
museum. Mrs. Conklin then testified
that her husband had seen the white
horse when Reporter Beck brought it
to their house before the funeral.
The defense then introduced as
their first witness. Dr. J. F. Todd, ex
county physician, but before he fin
ished his testimony Joseph U. Dunlop,
ex-editor of the Chicago Times, was
called. He aakl Reporter lteck was in
his employ In 19HD. and Judire Wlntr
wanted to know If he waa the same
man who fooled a jury and waaaent1
to the Insane aavluin and afterward
created a aeunatioa by circulating hia

Governor Mltohell Preparing a ftnrprlae
for the Prtaa righiera.
Jacksowuxk, Fla., Jan. 23. State's
Attorney nartridge returned from
Tallahassee yesterday afternoon from
a consultation with Governor Mitchell.
He said that the governor had given
the instructions for Sheriff Board to
Attornoy General Lamar, who, with
Adjutant General Houston, will arrive
Mr. nartridge sal J that should the
crowd board a train none of the rail
road employes would be arrested, but
he would say nothing as to whether
the principals would be or not It ia
the opinion that Governor Mitchell in
tends an important move Thursday
morning, and some believe that he will
order the arrest of Cerbett and Mitchell
on the charge of arranging a fight,
which Attorney General Lamar htrtds
to come within the law providing the
arranging of a duel. Should they be
arrested Thursday morning it would
necessitate a postponement of the
battle for one day at least and the
men would undoubtedly be put under
heavy bonds to keep the peace until
the court should decide the legality
of the matter. This would effectually
fmt an end to the contest, for even if
t should be decided that the fighters
were within the limit of the law, the
men would then be out of condition
and tbe crowd gone.
A report came up from the Mitchell
training quarters last night that the
English champion, during his exercise
early In the evening, had sprained and
wrenched hia leg. The club sent ft
commissioner to Anastasia island to
notify Mitchell a special car would be
in readiness for him on Wednesday
morning. According to the commission
er when he returned Mitchell was in a
very unpleasant state of mind when
he learned what was required of
him. It is said that he declared he
would not fight under the auspices of
such a club, and that he had put up
with too many other bluffs already.
The commissioner was then told of
the injury which tbe Englishman bad
sustained. How serous ft may be he
has not learned.
The Duval club ha issued an edict
in response to the assertions which
Mitchell is said to have made, in which
the Englishman is served with a for
mal warning that the club would
claim his forfeit of 85,000 if he did not
appear at the point indicated in the
original summons Wednesday fore
noon. In addition to this, it Is au
thoritatively stated that the referee
will award tbe $5,000 side bet to Cor
bet t in that event. There is consid
erable other money which Mitchell
would lose if he failed to subject him
self to the orders of the Duval club.
An attachment 'was served to-day
on Corbett's professional property at
May port for $1,000, alleged damages
to property occupied by the party.
The cottages used for training and
sleeping quarters are the property of
Judge Gibbons of tbe municipal court,
and Claus Meyer of this city. They
claim Cnrbett occupied them without
WAITING FOR A NEW JUSTICE
Many Important Case Delayed Became
of tbe npreme Coort Vacancy.
Washington, Jan. 83. While the
personal feature of the vacancy in the
supreme court interests the politi
cians most, it does not approach
in importance the material Interest
affected by delay. Questions of con
stitutional law upon the decision of
which hang great property interests,
are being held in abeyance until a full
bench can pass upon them, and natur
ally the litiganta are impatient under
the enforced waiting, which haa been
protracted beyond their expectation by
the long debate of the senate com
mittee over the Hornblower nomina
tion and its final rejection, which
necessitates the selection of a new
