OCALA, Fla., Dec. The National Farmers' Alliance after routine work, listened to the report of the committee on legislation with refereucs treasury bill. The report following amended demands: We demand the abolitio n of na- tional banks; we demand that the gov- ernment shall establish sub-treasuries or depositories in the several states which Shall loai money to the people at a low rate of interest not to exceed 2 per cent. on non-perishable farm products and albo Upon real estata with proper limitations upon the quantity of land and amount of money. We demand that the amount of the circulating medium be speedily in- creased to not less than S50 per capita. We demand that congress shall pass such laws as shall effectually prevent AMERICAN FEDERATION OF LABOR. unions of individual the dealing in futures on all agricultural and mechanical productions, preserving a stringent system of procedure in trials such as shall secure the prompt convic- tion and imposition of such penalties as ahnll secure the most perfect compliance with the law. condemn the silver bill re- cently passed by congress and demand in Jieu thereof the free and unlimited coinage of silver. demand the passage of the laws prohibiting alien ownership of _1 and, and that congress take prompt action to devise some plan to obtain all lands now owned by aliens and foreign syndicates, and that all lands now held by railroads and other corporations in excess of such as is actually used and needed by them be wclaimed by the government and held for actual settlers only. in the doctrine of equal tights to all and special privileges to none, we demand that our national legislation shall be so framed in the future as not to build up one industry at the expense of another. We further demand a removal the existing heavy tariff tax from the accessaries of life, that the poor of our land must have. We further demand a Just and equitable system of graduated tax or incomes. We believe that the money of tlie country should be kept as much as possible in the hands of the peo- ple, aud hence we demand that all national and state revenues shall be limited to the necessary expenses of the government economically and honestly administered. demand the most rigid, hon- est and just state and national govern- mental control and supervision of the means of public communication and transportation, and if this control and supervision do not remove the abuses now existing, we demand the government ownership of such means of communica- tion and transportation. A spirited debate followed, at the be- ginning of which the president reminded tbe members of the restriction of five ihinutes placed upon all speeches. Delegate Carr of North Carolina pre- sented a memorial of the National Farmers' Alliance to congress asking that it enact as soon as possible senate bill No. 3991, known as the Paddock pure food bill, which was introduced at the in- stance of the Farmers' Alliance of Ne- for the reasons that the delegates believe that if the said bill becomes Ian-it prevent adulterations and misbratid- Ing of food preparations and drupes which are now so largely practiced to the great injury of the agricultural interests of the country, the health of the people and the morals of the business public. The memorial also mosr. earnestly and emphatically protests agaiust the passage of the bill known as the Conger lard bill for the reason that it proposes to extend the taxing power of the government and increase the list of articles upon which are levied at a time when the ten- dency is toward reduced taxation. The Conner lard bill proposes to place taxes on the manufacture of com pound lard and prohibitory precautions on the sale of the same. A tax on compound lard is a tax on the cotton seed oi! raised by the cotton piHnters of the South, and it is also a tax on leef fat, a product of the cattle raisers of the West. The taxation of cot- ton seed oil and beef fat is made in order to enhance the price of hog's lard. It ar- rays the farmers of the North against the cotton planter of the South and the cat- tle raiser of the West. It is sectional legislation, and therefore the industr ;il movement declares its open and increasing hostility to it. In the war of the near future which will be declared by 73? acainst sectionalism the farratr ard his fr will be th? citadel around which the heaviest battles an> to be fought We are not content in y shaking hards across the Woody Our work is to fill up and efface the We are as many as tbe hut one as thf sea. factionalism must. not. shall not live.

Ni-w Yi-ri. u il i DETnorr, Ddc. iilteruoon session of the American Fedur.it ion of Labor was called to rder at 2 o'clock, when Prt-fci- dent Gompers delivered hi' ad- President (iompers cautlizted the con- vention to avoid controversial qivstions ami to concentrate effort upon such issues as the members are most agree'l. That such a course is best is evidenced by the success of the eiizht-hour movement since the last convention. The agitation for that reform has been successful iu 137 cities, and has benefited 46.1ST workmen in the carpenter trade, besides countless others in other branches of the building trade. The demand for an eight-hour day will be made by the other trades in series, and its final success cannot be questioned. The next industry to make the demand will be the coal miners. They will May 1, 1891. During the year the federation has established 274 local branches and the Na tional Trader Union report 913 local branches established. Existing branches have added from 3 to 35 per cent, in mem- bership. The address declares in favor of a system of national trades. During the year authonz" 1 strikes have taken place. Of these 9S9 succeeded, 76 failed and 98 were compromised Besides many concessions were gainec without resorting to strikes. The people who propose a strike are warned that bluster will not win and that they must be prepared for whatever battle they pro- pose. The federation is not always able to assist strikes financially. President Gompers refers in commenda- tion to the project of an international labor congress in 1893 to be coincident with the world's fair; demands the en- forcement of the eight-hour law in gov- ernment works; asks for a suitable fed- eral alien contract labor law; suggests the extended observance of labor day as an annual holiday; warns against child labor and declares for international copyright and ballot reform. President Gompers meets the charge of excluding Socialists by denying that he has ever tried to exclude any one for his economic opinion, and insisting that the only requisite to tbe trade union move- ment is good standing in a local union. On the conclusion of President Gom- pers' address the committee on creden- tials went into session. President Gom- pers appeared before the committee and objected to receiving any papers from the delegates representing the Central Labor federation of New York. While the convention was awaiting the report of the committee on credentials, Frank K. Foster of Massachusetts talked on rapid progress of the trades unions in New England. Adam Menzies of Denver spoke encour- agingly of the growth of labor organiza- tions in the far West. The committee on credentials then pre- sented their report. They decided not to receive the credentials of the delegates from the Central Labor federation of New York, but permitted them to present their case to the convention that body to decide it. After the appointment of the various committees the convention adjourned.

"It is the only case that I can find any record of since "W said the judge, "when an order was granted by a judge of the supreme court and with four or five judges who could have been consulted in that judicial di-trict that a judge from a distant, part of the state granted a stay of proceedings. That I regarded as an out- rageous proceeding and I now so re- gard it." The motion to vacate the stay was granted and the board of canvassers was ordered to reconvene forthwith. 'HONEST BILLY Terribly Mangled by tlie Cars. ATTICA, N. Y., Dec. S. Eighmeg of this place was instantly killed in the New York Central yard at this place about 7 o'clock yesterday morning. The body was discovered lying across the tracks near the engine house switch by one of the switchmen. He was seen by no one until his body was discovered, and the only theory of the accident is that he was walking along the track and slipped on the ice and fell against the side of the engine, being struck by the side-rod and dropped under the tender. His body was terribly mangled, the wheels having run across his chest and legs. Indian Killed in a Saloon Fight. DEXTER, Dec. special from Durango, Colo., says: Thomas Franklin quarreled with two Indians in a saloon at Armaso, N. M. Franklin struck both Indians over the head with a billiard cue, killing one and seriously injuring tbe other. Apaches came to Armago, intent upon having Franklin's scalp, but he waa secreted by the sheriff. Great excitement prevails, as the Indians declare they want justice. The towns people, however, have armed themselves, and if the Indians should attempt to take Franklin out of town there will be trouble. Ex-Pugilist Clow Mnrdereil. DEKVEB, Colo., Dec. P. Clow, the ex-pugilist, was shot and killed in his saloon in Lorimer street by Frankie Mar- sh-ill. The two men had been on bad terms over a horse sale.

Faulkner, in wrecking the Dansville National bank. Thosa efforts have been unavailing, and Fuulkuer must cither withdraw his plea of guilty recently made and stand trial, or accept punish- ment on that pica. Col. Alexander. United States district attorney, wont to Washington on Nov. 20 at the request of Attorney General Mill'-r. "The attorney said Col. Alexan- der yesterday, "wishel me to lay the evi- dence in the case before him and I did We went over the facts carefully and I heard nothing from Mr. Miller until to- day. I have a letter from the attorney general in which he states that, he has talked with the president oa the subject of granting a full pardon to Fa-ilkuer; that the attorney general is disinclined to recommend such a pardon. "It is thought that the best cau be none is for Faulkner to receive his sentence and then the attorney general has uo doubt that the president will grant a commutation oi the sentence. The result of this letter from the attorney general will be that Faulkner's attorney will be advised at once, and it will be left with Faulkner to either receive his sentence or to withdraw his plea of guilty and proceed to trial at the court which meets in Al- bany on Jan. 20 next. "The attorney general was inclined to the belief that Faulkner ought not to be considered as an accessory to the crime, using that word as meaning an accomplice. It did not seem to him that because two brothers went in and wrecked a bank, and then one tried to shoulder all the blame on the other that the latter one should be permitted to escape punishment." Col. Alexander stated that he simply laid the evidence in the case before Attor- ney General Miller. He was not asked to, nor did he take a position either in, for, or of, or against granting the pardon asked for by Faulkner. Correct Version of Messrs. O'lJiicii ai.

When she gave MarKs a power of attor- ney she did not know what the paper sig- nified. The personal relations between Marks and herself were of the most affec- tionate character. MEN OF LETTERS.
