To Every Lover
of the People's Cause !
Dear Reader: We are working for you and yours. And that
our 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 10 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
ign and return the appended pledge, to do simply what you can for

promise to do my share, and will exert myseif to secure at least
five new subscribers for The Alliance-Independent within the

KILLED IN A CABLE CAR.
Terrible Accident on an Aerial Caela
Line at Knox-llle.
Knoxvuxb, Tenn., Feb. 80. For
several months past there has been an
aerial cable car line across t'ae Ten
nessee river near this city and hun
dreds have continually flocked there,
the ride, at a distance of 2,000 feet
above the river, being a particularly
exhilarating one, comparing favor
ably with a trip on the famous
Ferris wheel at the world's
fair. But yesterday afternoon the
gaiety which has hitherto reigned
supreme In the vicinity, was suddenly
turned into gloom. Without a mo
ment's warning, while the car with
eight occupants was near the bluff
on the opposite side of the river, the
cable broke and the car dashed dow
the incline at' frightful speed. The
violent motion of the car caused the
cable to wrap around it, and when
within about 200 feet from the ground
crushed it as though it was an egg
One end of the cable struck Oliver
Ledgerwood, a prominent young at
torney of this city, on the head, kill
ing him Instantly. The other occu
pants ot the car were so badly
frightened that they attempted to
jump out of the car Into the river, but
were restrained by the brakeman.
Fin a ' !y a 1 was secured beneath
the dangling car and the survivors
rescued by means of a rope, each de
scending hand over hand. At the
coroner's Inquest it was discovered
that the cable had been partially
severed by an unknown miscreant,
