New York, March 24,1890.
J. A. Hill, Corresponding Secre
Dear Sir: I have received your
letter accompanied by a copy of
the declaration of the principles of
the farmers’ alliance. I see noth
ing in this declaration that cannot
be fully indorsed by any man who
loves his country, who believes
that the object of onr government
should be the freedom, prosperity
and happiness of. all our people,
and who believes that jastice and
fairness to all are necessary con
ditions to its nsefnl administra
tion. It has always seemed to me
that the farmers of the country
were especially interested in an
equitable adjustment of onr tariff
system. . The indifference they
have shown to that question and
the ease with whichthey have been
led away from sober consideration
of their needs and their rights as
related to this subject have excited
my surprise. Struggle as they
may, onr farmers most continue to
be be ^purchasers and consumers
of numberless things enhanced in
cost by .the tariff regulations.
Sorely they 1 have a. right to say
that this cost shall not be increased
for the purpose of collecting un
necessary revenue or to give an-
due advantage to domestic manu
facturers. The plea that onr in.
fant industries need protection,
Which thus impoverishes the farm
er and consumer, is, in view of the
natural advantages and the. skill
and ingenuity of onr people, a hol
low pretext. Struggle as they
may, onr farmers cannot escape the
conditions which fix the price of
what they produce and sell accord
ing to the rates which prevail in
foreign markets flooded with the
competition of countries enjoying
freer exchange, of trade than we.
The plausible nresentation of the
blessings of a home market should
not deceive onr depressed and im
poverished agriculturists. There
is-noJioma market for them which
does not take its instructions from
the seaboard, and the seaboard
transmits the word oE the foreign
markets. Because my conviction
that there shoald be a modification
of our tariff laws arose principally
from appreciation oE the wants of
the vast army of consumers, com
prising onr fanners, onr artisans
i. + the low- a°<I oar workingmen, and because

_This ia the best time of the

have already reached this state,
and the indications are multiply
ing that it will not be. many years
before the great mass of Southern
negroes, especially those of the
better class who have faithfully
striven to improve-their condition,
wilheut loose entirely from that
party, which, while pretending, to
be their friend and protector, has
given no further evidence of that
regard than in bitter denunciation
and misrepresentation of the
South, and the white people of the
South— their only true friends—
with whom they live and upo
whom they depend for support.
One of the most significant signs
of this coming era of political free
dom for the colored people may be
found in the card from a leading
colored man in Middle Georgia to
the Constitution, in which he for
mally announces his withdrawal
from the Republican party, and
some of his reasons for this coarse.
This card should have the widest
publicity. It should be read to or
by every colored man in theSoufb,
and it should be given careful
thought The writer of this card,
Frank Davis, is an industrious,
hard working colored man, who re
alizes that the highest qualiteis of
citizenship are respectability, in
dependence and honesty. What
he says is practical and to the
point, and is borne out by the ex
perience of thousands of negroes
throughout the South, who are be
ginning to do their own thinking:
who will, we have no doubt, give
ready acquiescense to what this
Middle Georgia colored man says.
Some of our esteemed Northern
contemporaries of extreme Repub
lican party bias should adorn their
columns with this card for the en
lightenment of their readers, to
whom they have been persistently
misrepresenting the condition of
the colored people in the Sonth for
years past. The card is as follows:
Dublin, Ga, May 9, 1890.—Ed
itor Constitution: Since I attained
my majority I have acted with, and
supported by my vote and influ
ence, the Republican party. Be
ing a colored man, I concluded it
to be my duty so to do. Owing to
the conduct of the present admin
istration I have resolved to re
nounce my allegiance to this party,
and in the future co-operate with
the Democratic party. There are
hundreds of colored people in this
section who will pursue tbesame
course. We are impelled to this
course by the position of the Repub
licanp arty on the important issnes
of the day. We consider the propo
sition of the Republican party to
enact a law whereby our elections
will be controlled by the Federal
authorities, a menace to popular
freedom and an insult to onr race,
and a meeting cf the colored peo
ple is called for the purpose of
protesting against this proposed
legislation, as well as to protest
against the passage of the iniqui
tous tariff bill championed by
McKinley and the Republican par-
diana were made with the view of
strengthening the Republican par
ty in that state, bat they have not
had that effect, The United States
marshal was appointed from
Fanklin, bub the Democrats bad ; ihe SP 04 where had been, and
was recently bitten on the ankle
by a large water moccasin. The
gentleman was on a fishing excur
sion in Lake Charles, a few miles
southeast of Pine Grove, and whs
walking through a thick patch of
Undergrowth when he felt some
thing strike him. In a few mo
ments he observed a snake from
test against the present imposi-
majority there for the first time
twenty years. The United
States district attorney was ap- :
pointed from Yincennes, bat that
town changed its political com
plexion and the democrats carried
it by an overwhelming majority.
An Indian commissioner was ap
pointed from Wabash, and the
democrats carried it, thongh they
had never done so before.
Other instances of democratic
gains could be given, bat those
mentioned are sufficient to show
that a very great change has taken
place in the political sentiments of
the people of Indiana since Gen.
Harrison became President
If the administration is not pop
ular in the President’s own state, it
is hardly probable that it is in any
other. In fact there are reasons
for believing that it has lost
gronnd all over the country. In
the town and county spring elec
tions in many of the western states
a few weeks* ago the democratic
gains were so large as to excite
very general comment.
There are several reasons why
the administration is unpopular,
the main one being probably that
it is weak. The impression has got
■abroad that the President is
small man intellectually. Blaine
is the only member of the ccbinet
who has ever made any impression
upon the country, and he seems to
be indifferent whether the adminis
tration is a success or hot
In the west, also the McKinley
tariff bill is not regarded with fa
vor. Notwithstanding all Mr.
endeavored to kill the reptile, bnt
only succeeded in bringing dawn
the end of his rod on the tip of its
tail; and though he attempted to
hold it thus until his friends could
reach the spot, the snake succeed
ed in escaping.
Mr. Yanderboof, failing to asso
ciate the appearance of the snake
with the slight scratch he received,
attributed it to the prick of a brier,
and took no notice of it. On re

nility has developed to an extraor-
dinary degree his natural vanity,
and that he is now simply a paran
oiac. Yet, in spite of his alleged
weakness, he is strong enough to
reject peremptorily every proposi
tion to elevate him to the peerage.
He might have been an earl long
ago, bnt he prefers to remain a
commoner. The old qneen has
hated and feared him most cordial

quarrelled like cats and dogs on
numerous occasions, bnt Gladstone

McKinley and others have said in
its behalf, there is a strong belief
that it favors the monopolies and
trusts and places new burdens up
on the people. Mr. McKinley’s
statementrthat it is a farmers’ tariff
bill is received with smiles of in
credulity. The people think for
themselves, and they cannot be
deceived by such statements. Un

The New York merchants are

They go to Washington by dozens,

of them. It may be that after
awhile McKinley will get the idea
into his head that his bill is not
only an outrage upon consumers,
bnt is dangerous to business. The
New York merchants say that if
the hill becomes a law it will force
half the business houses on lower
Broadway to close their doors, and
that business blocks will be at a
discount. Those who are talking
this way are notdemocrats. They
are business men of both political

parties. He said
“We do not trade with any par
ty. We are more patriots than
partisans. Wt are tired of sacri
ficing the interests of the people to
party. We have got nothing to do
with the democratic party. We
are in favor of alliance measures.
Where a state is democratic we
want to elect such democrats as
will work in the interest of meas
ures promulgated by the alliance
convention. The republican
members of this order will make
the same efforts to send men who
are friends of the people, rather
than friends of a party. We are
ndependent, and we c'aim by that
independence that we hold the bal
ance of power that we con Id not
hold by starting a third party.
Therefore, the cry of a third party
is ridiculous. I would not be sur
prised in Arkansas, in some close

act strictly as independents here,

prohibits it, for the reasons that
