Quoting from his recent article in Tjie Herald, ,he states, "The U. F.

And further, "in no .other way coulil j we make ourselj^ felt more effective- ] ly." Wh-At a change of opinion! The | Farmers' Alliance relesgated to the past, where it rightly belongs. "SA'e linow not whether Mr. Dunham is an aspirant for politicaI>pie, or a .director of tlie U. F.
