resolutions one adopted by the white Al liance Wednesday and the other pending before tho colored men yesterday The white Alliance adopted a resolution em phatically condemning the Lodge election bill They not only adopted it but sealed tho adoption by motions to reconsiderand then lay that motion on the table thus making the action unalterable The vote was nearly unanimous and the voters en thusiastic in their condemnation of the measure Humphrey Seeiuu Mistaken the statement of Col Humphrey printed in these dispatches Thursday there is a very decided senti ment iu the Colored Alliance on the sub ject of the suppressed negro vote and at the meeting of the Alliance Thursday night a resolution was offered condemn ing the action of the white Alliance in passing a resolution in opposition to the fed eral election bill because such action has no reference whatever to the aims and pur poses of t he organization and was calcu lated to check the growthof the Alliance Tlie Resolution Adopted At yesterdays meeting of the Colored Alliance an amended resolution waa unan imously adopted urging congress to pass the Lodge election bill The principal change from Thursday resolution is the elimination of the paragraph criticising the white national Alliance for its action on the same subject Down on the Conger Laril Bill A resolution was introduced by Dele gate Patillo of North Carolina concern ing the Conger lard bill which recites the injustice nnd oppression of tlie meaaure now before congress Therefore favoring the doctrine of equal rights for all and special privileges for none and being op posed to the abuse and prostitution of the taxing power of the government and the en actment of class legislation by which one industry is fostered and built up at the ex pense of another we protest against the passage ol the Conger lard bill while in the interest of public health and morals und to secure pure food pure drugs we favor und pray for the passage of the Paddock pure food bill The resolution wus unanimously adopted Humphrey Much Surprised President Humphrey was the most sur prised man in town when he heard what had been done lie was not present at the time the action was taken and when he learned of it he could not account for it conference committee of white and colored Alliance delegates was at work all clay trying to aree on a basis for united action The negroes are wary and they demanded full political recognition It was finally decided that the Alliance should demand a full count and free bal lot tor the negroes and equal advantages for

23rd day of February at two oclock for the purpose of forming a national party that mustdecide who in this country is sovereign the citizen or the dollar The White Alliance Meeting At the session of the white Farmers Al liance Col Livingstone of Georgia from the committee on organization made a re port which is to furnish basis for an ultimate union between the national Farmers Alliance and Industrial Union and the Farmers Mutual Benefit associa tion which has an organization with a large membership in the western states Under this proposition the Mutual Benefit association is still to maintain its separate organization but is to be entitled to rep resentation in the national Alliance coun cil and the executive committee of each organization is to meet hereafter and ar range the details of this union The re port was adopted without dissent Amending the Platform Col Livingstone also offered a resolution providing for the adoption of the St Louis Alliance platform of 1889 Loucks of North Dakota offered an amendment providing for the ownership of all railroad and tele graph lines by the national government Livingstone opposed this and offered as a compromise measure a resolution provid ing that the liberty to control and operate all siVLih lines shall rest in the government If after a fair trial of this system it is found that it does not afford the relief de

closed sea The Seizures Started the How The fact is pointed to however that the property right was never disregarded for eighty years because no seizures were made and the question of jurisdiction was never raised until the seizures were made in 18S5 It is contended that the right of exclusive jurisdiction was never claimed until recently and that until the seizures were made the Canadian government had no ground or reason for opening the ques tion It has only been five years sincu the seizures were begun while a fleet of sail ing vessels of all nations has been killing seals in
