AH off That to Cuiuhiur wul a Tirkrl in the Next Other artluitt of Ille t'lkuveuliua Now lleld at CH-aSa. t'turiila. OCALA, Fla Dec. the morn- ing session of the Farmers' Alliance. Col. Livingstone, of Georgia, from the committee on organization, made a re- port which is to furnish the basis for an ultimate union between the Nation- al Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and the Farmers' Mutual Benefit a-six-iiitinn. which has an organization with a large membership in the west- ern states. Under this proposition the Mutual Benefit association is to still maintain its separate organizations, but is to be entitled to representation in the National Alliance council, and the executive committee of each organiza- tion is to 111 ;et and arrange the details of this union. The report was adopted without dissent. This ac- tion undoubtedly means the absolute consolidation of the organizations in the near future. Col. Livingstone also offered a resolu- tion providing for the adoption of the St. Louis Alliance platform of 1839. CoL Livingstone's was to call out any objections which might exist as to its absolutely unanimous endorsement. >ir. Loucks. of Dakota, offered an amen iment providing for the owner- ship of all ailroad and telegraph lines by the National government. Col. Livingstone opposed this and of- fered as a compromise measure a resolu- tion providing that the liberty to con- trol and operate all such shall rest in the government. If, after a fair trial of this sy.-tein. it is found that it does not afford the relief demanded or effect reforms in the management of them the gove; nuient's ownership shall be com- plete. This was adopted after some dis- cussion. Mr. Wade, of Tennessee, offered an additional amendment that all con- nected with the Alliance must support the St. Louis and Ocala platiorm, (amended platform or suffer suspension from the order: and. further that no candidate of any National j.olitic.-il office shall be supported by the Alliance mem- bers tinie.-s he endorses this platform and any sub-Alliance not complying with these restrictions may be suspended at the pleasure of the president. This was also adoj-ted. and the whole plat- form as amended was uuamionsly adopted upon a call of the roll of the state-. Dr. C. W. chairman of the National executive committee, submit- ted lu's aunn.il report of the work ac- coinp ished by that body during the past v ear. 11 referred at length to the committee's work in having the sub- treasury bill drawn and presented to confess. The cliaiiman said the com- mittee's mission in this particular was practically ended, because the Alliance had elected forty members who would look after pushing the bill through con- gress. The reiiort recommended are- duct'.ou of salaries of all National Alli- ance officers :ind the removal from Washington of the National president's office. Mr. Macune took particular pains to impress upon the delegates that during the past year he had not been engaged in lobbying for Alliance measures, but had always relied upon the merits of the bills and the moral power and inf.uence which stood behind iim. At the conclusion of the report Dr. Macnne addressed the convention upon the jiolicy of the Alliance. After the forenoon adjournment Dr. Macune gave the following report of his utterance upon third party questions: -I told the delegates that the people in the southern states were not prepared to embark in the third party movement, but that some western and northwest- ern statesmen had already embarked in the movement and he considered that the prosperity of the order demanded some action "of that kind to sustain them in efforts. In this emergency there was a great necessity for conserv- atism and caution. I recommended as a compromsie that would carry out the end sousht to be achieved by the west and north if it met the approbation of the south, that a convention be called to meet in 1392. and that the convention be composed of delegates from all associations of producers, and that the next annual session of the su- preme council elect delegates to repre- sent this order in that convention. "This will give the people time in which to decide whether tnev want in- dependent party action, and if so when the great convention meets, delegates will cotne there with authorities and in- structions from their people. If not, the cause will be benefited by the confrMio4. and there will be a better understanding of the objects which the, labor organszat.ons are seeking to a. hieve. i here is the basis of all I recommended, but it has taken a hold up-.n them and it will fatisfy both sid'S." Livingstone said as to the proba- ble vfter' on tLe of the country ot the Alliance po.icy. if adopted as out- lined by Dr. .Macnne- It can't fail f> have- to have a marked effect It would commit Alliance of the almost Bolidlv asaln-t a third party. Before February. we shall have a chance to of the two leading po- litical will 'how a willingness to ac-i-de to ur There noth- ing in the principles of the Alliance p'.atform i-x. t in the circumstance's conditions w hich have brought it into llenrv Clay. Calhoun and Webster on i'" and even Charier" Stunner not very far from u. if neitner partv listens to us then u will be time for us to act independently. We have no disposition to break down either political party but relief must come through some "political channel. Do you think there U an v prospect of the Republican party falling into line and espousing the cause of the Alii Xo. not while it stands'on its present protective tariff platform can it secure tht- alliance vote of the sourh. It will have to wholly forfeit its present iden- tity as a political party in order to change that, and 1 do not see any ble chance of this coming think the Democratic party of the North would join the so-ithern Democrats on an Alliance do. I think tuid make the prediction that the Democratic National convention in 1KW win adopt t le alli- ance St Louis platform in Col. Livingstone is the leader of tl.e Alliance, and his opinion tuay be taken as substantially defining the" political position of the southern Alliance. At the forenoon meeting of the Na- tional colored Allionce. an amended resolution was nnauiinously adopted urging congress to pass the Lodge elec- tion bill. The principal change from Wednesday's resolution is the elimina- tion of the patagraph criticizing the white National Alliance for its action on the same subject. Gen. J. H. Kice. of Kansas, who is an aspirant for the people's nomination for United States senator against Mr. Ingalls. spoke last night on the tion to improve the Mississippi river. In the course of his remarks he took oc- casion to deliver a violent political speech, denouncing the Republican party as unworthy of existence It had its origin in the highest impulses of human freedom, but now it has fallen from its high estate and has become a plunderer. It is a gigantic conspir.icv to erect a uiouied imperialism upon the ruins of frea institutions. It is the champian of trusts, monopolies and corporations to grind down the toiling masses. The speech produced a sensation, and Alliance men wish it understood that hfe opinions are simply those of an indi- vidual and not endorsed by the Alli- ance as a body. The following is the call of the third party conference signed by Gen. Kice and John Davis, of Kansas, and by about seventy-five other Alliance mem- bers: A call for a National conference. WHEREAS, In unity there is strength: therefore it is desirable that there should be union of all variously named industrial organizations that stand on common grounds, to this end. the indi- viduals from various states whose nf hereto signed make this call for a National conference to be composed of delegates fix m the following organiza- tions namely: The Fanners' Alliance: the Fanners" Mutual Benefit association: the Citi- zens' Alliance; the Knights of Labor, and all other industrial organizations that support the principles of the St. Louis agreement of 1889. Each state organization to send one delegate from each co gressional district and two from the state at large, and each district organization to send not lees than three delegates and each county delegation not less than one delegate to be chosen according to the customs of each re- spective organization, during the month of January, 1891. Also, that the editor of each news- paper is hereby invited as a delegate that has advocated the St. Louis agree- ment, and support the candidates nomi- nated there in 1S90, the delegates to meet in the city of Cincinnati on Mon- day, the 33d day of February, 1891, at 2 o'clock p. in., for the purpose of forming a National Union party, based upon the fundamental ideas of finance, trans- portation, labor and land in furtherance of the work already begun by those or- ganizations, and preparatory for a united struggle for country and home in the great political conflict now pend- ing, that must decide who in this coun- try is the sovereign, "the citizen or the dollar.' At the afternoon session L. L. Polk was re-elected president bya-1 lamation. B. F. Cover, of Kansas, was nnanimons- y elected vice president and .1. H. Turner, of Georgia, was elected secre- tary. ________________ STRIKE ON THE B. O. Thirty-Five and Brakmen Quit Work at PITTSBCRO.
