The majority of the [KJ clans of boih parties believe he will be Tied to the senate. He is a big man in- 'tually, and the Knusas people believe he i i 2 card for the state. For these reasons elieved that some of tbe alliancemen f in hands with the republicans to return h That is the way Congressman Peters and in an interview in Tho New York PRICE FIVE CENTS r 10 alliance members go into caucus n oncentrato their vote upon one man fr Ingalls is defeated. If they fail to t" r. Ingalls will te elected. That ia the sit- BI- i a nutshell. My own judgment is that i- fair prospect of securing1 enough T H n tho Alliance to elect him. 7 T however, i3 very bitter. E- orb n being; made to solidify the alliance or ?'a party vote. Threats havo been re- R r o, and outside influences brought to bear u as members elect. It was reported at one hat Colonel Polk, president of tbe alliance, coming out for the purpose of taking a 1 in tlie but I believo he liaa i1 inaoned tae idea. The secretary of tlio central committee of the people's party jTna.de a threat that if any man elected on that 3nrty'3 ticket voted for Ingalls, he would not live to sec his family. Tnii, of course, was a foolish threat, and the man Chase, who made it, IB a novice in politics. Already there are factions and j Sickenngs among those who might be supposed 'to have the lead in the alliance senatorial race, asj if a candidate ia agreed upon by the alliance 'meinherg, it will be somebody whose name has mentioned. Mr Ingalls will naturally reap the benefit from the split which, it Beems to tee, is bound to come." The Sun correspondent then goes on to say: Peters says that the political overthrow In K s was not accomplished by either the tariff, ti or mere currency issues. It waa due to tho organization of the alliance party, an or, ization so complete that it enabled the fo estimate thsir poll several days before within a very few votes. Another thing i if not more important, was the fascina- t i ch secret organizations nave for country f and which caused alliance lodges to be J heavy weather. Tha ttatn and woro taken off by the Pean- fcad lauded here. WASHINGTON, November Colonel Gates, of Alabama, reached Here this morning. He is the first of the Alabama congressmen to put In an appearance. AS usual, Colonel Gates returned with a now and original plan which he hopes to have adopted. It is a new method to provide for the payment of pensions. HE HAS AN IDEA. "I have an idea, and I think a just and good he said, in answer to a quary, "which I intend putting in shape of a bill, and which, I hope to see become a law. The. government will pay out this year fully in the shape of pensions. One-third of this amount, or is paid by the people of the of which is returned to that section. Here we pay many so-called veterans S75 for the loss of an arm, who, if they had tho lost member, could not earn one-third of tho amount. Again, it is building up a separate and distinct class, who live entirely upon the government crib. Men are like hogs. When they are get- ting well fed from a hllod crib they become lazy and worthless. Again, this legislation is simply the result of demagoguery. I believe in pensioning deserving veterans, but I ana opposed to tho business as we are now con- ducting iE. "HoTvever, as it looks as though it must go on at this extravagant rate, my solution of tho question is tho establishment of an income tax for the payment of pensions. Tax every in- dividual a certain per cent on all incomes ex- ceeding SlO.OOO a year, and tax corporations, too, but make the rate less than on individu- als. This would make tho rich men of the country bear their just proportion of tbe ex- penses of tbe government. I have, however, not formulated the details of tho plan yet. LOANING MONEY ON REAL ESTATE. "And there is another bill I hope to have passed this session. It is the bill I introduced last session authorizing national banks to loan 50 per cent of their capital stock on real estate. Both the bankers and the people want this, and I bo- lievo it will result in good all around." THE SPEAKERSHIP QUESTION. "How about the "The speakorship? "We want the best man, whether he be from the north or from the south. Wo want a good parliamentarian, a conservative and able man, and a man of courage. Much, depends upon our next speaker. He should seloct his committee, and without fear and favor. Upon the selec- tion of a competent chairman and the organ- ization of the committee, tho result of the next presidential election, in a large measure, dopeud's. f'ThCT repuijiiuj.ii congressmen alreaay claim that the recent defeat will cause them to get together and work that much tho more earnestly. They claim it will mean victory for them in '92. But the sectional cry is all bosh. A conservative southern man will do the party as much good as a northerner. We are one countiy and one people. RULFS OF TIIC HOUSE. "Another matter we should devote much at- tention and study rules of the next Wo do not want Read's gag rnles, neither do we want our old rules. Reed'sgave too much power to the speaker. Our's did not give enough. They allowed too much room for filibustering. I also favor the new electric system of taking aye and nay votes. The present system consumes too much time, and gives too great an oppor- tunity for dilatory tactics. It takes half an hour to call the roll and record the votes under the present system. With tho electric indi- cator, a vote could be taken and announced within five minutes. This system would, however, make members tbink for themselves. THE FORCE BILL. ''Oh, yes, the republicans of the senate want to pass the force bill. They have a majority and can do it if they are unanimous, but I doubt the ability of the leaders to hold the western men in line. I think they will fail again." B. W. B. MOKE MONEY WANTED. BAD FOB THE KICKEBS. TO TWO TEAMS. FOOTBJ.LZ, THE GRAND STAM0 COLLAPSES At the Tale-Frlnceton Came, and Fifty People Football Team in Xndlanapolia Has a Smash-Up. BEOOKLTW, November 27. A terrible accident occurred on the football grounds at Eastern park, Brooklyn, a low ininntes after 12 o'clock, and before the Yale-Prinoton game began. The big free stand on the eastern side of the grounds, furthest from the grand stand, sud- denly collapsed, carrying down with it the en- tire load ol human beings. The crash came without any warning whatever, and at the time the long rows of bleachers wore closely packed with spectators. It is estimated :_that there were more than people on the structure at the time. A scene of indescriba- ble confusion and panic followed the crash, Which was heard in all parts of the grounds. Tho occupants were mostly men, a great ma- jority of them students from Yale and Prince- ton. There were also many women in the crowd. They all lay in a confused and struggling mass npon the ground. Many of them were com- pletely buried under the wreckage of planks and Ijoists, .of which tho rickorty structure waa built. Tho screams and shrieks and groans which came from the unfortunates were hojrtrendmg to hear. Many fainted from the injuries they received. In aninstant there was a general rush for that part of the field and a score or more police- men were soon engaged in pulling the maimed and wounded from the wreck. Others lent their assistance and within ton minutes the Tbolo place had been cleared. Atj first it was feared that some might have been killed, but this fear proved unfounded. A great many persons, however, were very severely hurt, and broken limbs and braised heads and bodies were numerous. Many friends of tho wounded peoplehad them carried at once out of the grounds and placed in hacks, Vhich took them away before their names Could be learned. In this way a great many qases were not reported to the police. The big dressing room under the grand stand was turned into a hospital, and surgeons from the Brooklyn hospital had their hands full with patients. Among those who were treated on the grounds and afterwards taken away were Charles Wilson, 403 Downey street, Brook- KEST, Bat Alabama "Will Hare to Struggle With the Senatorshlp Again Today.

KICHMOND, Va., November At a Farmers' Alliance meeting, held here to- day, addresses were made by National Lecturer Terrell and Senator Jolui W. Daniel, who ar- rived in the city lust before the night meeting. Senator Daniel discussed the question of free coinage of silver, and argued that this country demanded more currency than any other coun- try on the globe. Lecturer Terrell also discussed the silver question and the general question of currency, and declared that the object of the alliance was to watch both parties and dig tbe political grave of any man who did not meet tbe de- mands of tho people for relief.

A lot of a dozen or un- learned, who stood on the top row of the bleach- ers, were badly brused and cut. The only ladies who were hurt were two Brooklyn women, one of whom had a foot crushed, and the other her leg bruised. They were first taken to tho manager's office, near the main entrance, and were afterwards taken from, the grounds by their friends. Some of those who were buried. beneath the wreckage and who were taken out unconscious, afterwards recovered and de- clined to be treated. They went on the field again and found other places to view the game. The lowest estimate puts the number of people injured at fifty, while others place it as high as sixty or more. The stand was evidently in a most unsafe condition, for the broken timbers showed that many of them were nearly rotten in two, while the whole structure was the most flimsy affair imaginable, and whon it began to fill up with spectators, the joists were heard to crack and strain, and many who started to find seats gave it up as a dangerous job. Several persons seated themselves near the entrance of the stand be- fore the accident occurred and warned the people not up, as it was unsafe. It was reported that bets were made quite early of five to one that the stand would go down before the game was over. The greatest indignation prevailed among tbe people on the grounds against the manage- ment of Eastern park, and the blame was aii put upon those one asserted that an examination of the structure would have slown that it was utterly insufficient t'o sup- port the crowd which would occupy it.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., November Butler Eleven defeated the Purdue university team in a game of football today, winning the state championship. The members of the victorious team determined to celebrate their victory and shortly after 7 o'clock tonight began to make the rounds of the city in a tally-ho coach. While crossing the street railroad tracks in the center of the city, tho king bolt of the vehicle broke. There were thirty persons in- aide of the coach aud on the roof at the time.

It haabcen given ont today by alliancemen that all along Holo, the alliance candidate, haa been willing to withdraw if Seay would, and let the friends of the two unite on a third man, who would ue nominated. They allege that Kolb, with a vote very few behind the leader, could not consistently come down in favor of Governor Seay, whose standing is third. On the otbor hand Governor Seay's friends that a number of the governor's friends are voting aud having been voting all the time in the Pugh ranks because they feared, or affected to fear, the nom- ination of Mr. Kolb, whom they consider a class candidate. These men, Seay's leaders allege, will vote for Governor Seay whenever the figlit narrows down between him and Senator and these combined the strength which Seay would receive from Mr. Kolb's forces in the event of his withdrawal, would, they claim, give him the nomination.

Tho candidates will bo Captain K. M. Willis and Mr. J. H. Martin. Captain Willis ranks among the brainiest lawyers of the state. Ho was admitted to the bar in 1858, since which time he has successfully practiced his chosen profession, except four years spent in the service of his country during the civil war. At the first call to arms he enlisted as a private in tho Third Georgia Cavalry, and was afterward promoted to captain. On one occasion, while leading a charge, ho waa badly wounded in hia right leg, and had his horse killed from under him. He was captured by Colonel (afterwards Gen- eral) Palmer of Illinois. Colonel Palmer noticing his wound bleeding, told CaptainWillis that if be would give him Ms word to remain in a certain farmhouse which they were passing until next morning, ho would leave him and send an ambulance for him the next morning, when hia wound would be dressed. Captain Willis appreciated his kindness and gave him his word to remain. During the night a squad of his company found him in the farmhouse, and of course persuaded him to go back with them. said Captain Willis, "my word is pledged, and while I know a yankee prison will be my IT IS 3STQT CHAELIE.
