FARMERS' ALUM Rational Couveution of the Ordei Meets at Ocala, Flo. i HAIKBUEADTH ESCAPE. Larsre Attendance of Delegates and Much Enthusiasm Haniiested. FreiiJeat A'ldreu the Policy of the Alliance What It Pro- to Accomplish. OCALA, Fla., Dec. national i convention of the National Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union met here Tuesday afternoon in the opera house, i About persons were present. GOT- ernor Fleming welcomed tho delegates, j Hon. John F. Dunn, a prominent aspir- I ant for the United States Senatorship, followed the Governor in a brief ad- dress. President Fonlk, of the South j Dakota Alliance, delivered an address in which he predicted victory for the Alliance at tae ballot-box in 1892. This sentiment xv-is cheerod to the echo by i the delegates. Ail tb.3 speakers pre- dieted tho general prevalence within a I ghort time of the ideas embodied in the Alliance platform adopted at St. Louis. Chairman Rogers introduced President Polk, who delivered his annual address, i The address congraiulates the Alii- ance on its achievement-; siuce the last j meeting and then reviewed the causes! of agricultural depression. The pre-si- I dent declared tliat this depression is n-i I anomaly to the student of industrial I progress. "Retrogression in American I he saul. "means national I decay, and powerful and promising as is I this giant republic, yet its power and glory touch not tho degradation of the American farmer.'' The alarm incident to centralization I of the money power and upbuilding of monopolies was then pointed out and both political parties wore condemned for forcing and encouraging this condi- tion. The president urged that additional organizers be sent at once to Oregon, Washington, Ohio, Now York, New Jer- sey, Arizona and other States. Among his recommendations was one-that an organization be formed to ba Known as the National Legislative Council, com- posed of the national president and the presidents of all Stite Alliaaces, their duty being to loolt aftor legislative re- form demanded by tbo Alliance, both in State Legislation and Congress. He deprecated sectionalisms and closed with an eloquent appeal for national har- mony. In relation to the political action of the Alliance. President Polk said that while the order is political, it can not be partisan or sectional ia its action. In support of this declaration, tho presi-. dent pointed to the record of the Alli- ance in tho recent popular election and particularly to the noble and patriotic bearing of the Alliance in Kansas and South Carolina. In regard to the record of the Alliance daring tho -past year, and especially with reference to the legislation de- manded by it, Mr Polk declared that Congress had persistently ignored all of their propositions, notably in the case of the measure known as the Sub-Treas- ury bill. "Congress." he said, "must come nearer to the people or they will get nearer to Congress." In outlining tho future policy of the Alliance President Pol c said that it will demand the restoration of silver to all the rights and qualities of legal tender which gold possesses; the issuance of Government currency direct to the peo- ple; equalization of taxes; prohibition of alien ownership of land; ownership and control of transporation lines by the Government; limit of public revenues to the economic administration of the Government; graduated taxation of in- comes and the flection of United States Senators by a direct vote of tho people. When President Polk had concluded the convention resolved itself into a sort of "love feast.'" during which C. A. Power, a Union so'difr from Indiana, moved that all ex-soldiers in the hall who indorsed tho sentimonts expressed iu the speeches with rt-ferenco to the burial of sectional riao up to be counted. Between forty and fifty men stood up amid the wiTdest. enthusiasm. Somebody suggested that three cheers be given for tho ex-Confed rates in the Alliance, and thoy were given with a will Then the es- Con federates present cheered the ex-Union soldiers to the echo. Tbe cheers ended with an old- fashionod "rcbol yell." Tho conven- tion then adjourned until this morning. Tbe conduct of Dr. Macune. editor of the National Ewnomist, is likely to bo investigated and may prove a bombshell in the deliberations of the Alliance. It is charged that Dr. Macune has violated the policy of the Alliance in his ad- vocacy of tho Conger lard bill: in his op- position to tho Paddock poro food bill: in bis indorsement of Speaker Reed's rulings, and Snilly in characteriz- ing tariff rofo-.-n the "galvanized chost of sticiionalJim an 1 'Usloyalty."

The Messiah craze s fully on in the Indian Territory and the Cheyennes. Arapahoe, Osage, Mis- souri and Seminole tribes are tho most ineasy. Tho Kickapoos, twenty-five miles south of here, a tribe which has always been more or less superstitious, are dancing. Word has been received lere by wire 1'onca, Cherokee strip, that the depot agent, section hands and inhabitants will bo compelled ;o leave there on account of the men- acing attitude of the Indians. The dis- patch inquired if troops could be had, stating that the tribes were becoming almost crazy in their ghost dance. SANTEK AGENCY, Neb., Dec. 3. The Santee Indians at tbe agency have taken a new turn in the threatened trouble. There are at this place a gsgat many who have served as scouts in times past, and who have incurred the hatred of the wild Sioux, and they have threat- ened their lives if ever an outbreak oc- curred. During the negotiation of tho recent Sioux treaty, every measure for the ben- efit of the Santees was vig-orously op- posed by the Ogalalla and Cheyenne bands. This further tended to keep up an unfriendly feeling and now tbe San- tees, feeling unsafe, have asked the Government for arms to protect them- selves in case of a general outbreas among the Sioux. PiTTSurnctiT, Dfc. General Miles passed througa the city last night ou hia way to tho seat of the Indian trouble in tbe West General Miles said he did not blame the Indians for the existing state of affairs. He said the post have been cheating the Indians by'hold- ing back their rations. He said the Messiah craze is due to Mormon-influ- ence. He believes there will be an out- break this winter and says he has orders to protect the whites at all hazards. FOUStD WATiSltY GitAVES. -saa- T. -y? Asroa.
