McA by Hie Anoka F. mid Alliance. Editor Journal: The following' preamble and resolutions were passed by the Aaoka F. M. B. A. and Alliance January 26th, -1S91. - ','. • . 'Whei'eas, There is now, and has been, for ten years past a general • decline in the price of farm products, thereby diminishing the earning power of the farm, and tending to decrease the value of the farm; and, Whereas, Such declines have been the cause of sreat financial disaster, among- agricultural classes; and, Whereas, The prices of other commodities have not declined in like proportion; and, Whereas, The expenses of County, State and A r atioti have incre'ased in an alarming degree, making it impossible for the farmer of small means to increase-his material possessions; and, Whereas, Men of large capital have combined in man/ cases to contract the prices of the necessaries of life, and also to control the supply, thus hindering a wholesome competition in trade, therefore, be it resolved by AnokaF. M. B. A. and Alliance 1 That \ve will labor for the good of the farmer, and common laborer, in every way consistent with the laws of our order. . 2 That we demand of our county commissioners a general reduction in county expenses and all property be listed for taxtation which is by law entitled to be so listed. 3 That the county public printing- be let to the lowest responsible bidder without regard to their past party affiliations. 4 That the construction and repairs of ditches be controlled so as to make tjbe least possible cost to the taxpayers. 5 That we favor such legislation as will provide free school books to all pupils in the common schools. 0 That we demand the repeal of the law allowing public officers fees in addition to their salaries, and that a law be enacted making the salaries of State and County officers to correspond to the salaries of others whose work and responsibilities are of a like character, in other callings. 7 The passage of a law making the legal rate of interest to conform to the rate that capital invested in farming produces on investment. 8 The unlimited coinage of silver and that the silver dollar be a legal tender for all debts, public and private. 9 That we are opposed to trusts and combines. 10 That class legislation is in direct opposition to the principles of a re-' publican/form of government.. 11 A law making the dealing.ia the, future .unlawful, and punishable ; by' nne and imprisonment. . • • 12 The election of United States Senators to be by a direct vote of the people. 13 That we are unalterably opposed to the liquor traffic as legalized by law. 14 That all real estate incumbered by mortgage indebtedness be exempt from taxtation, to the amount of such incumbrance, and that such mortgage not be listed for taxation in the eoun- Bctectlve fforrt* as u Blackmailer. Detective John T. Norris, the scalawag who gained a somewhat unenvia- ; ble notoriety here some three years 'Has again turned up in a role which does not add-- credit to;;his already unsavory reputation. He is this time accused of attempting to blackmail Dr. 'Sohutti of Laporte. The 'Herald says Jforiis arrested Schutt Friday evening on a warrant from Kosciusko county charging him with unlawfully taking from one James Miller, the sum of §2,300. It is reported that after making- the arrest Korris offered to let the doctor go if he would give him $100. This, if true, would look like a blackmailing scheme. The doctor was taken before Justice Folant who bound him over for examination, the case being set 'for 4:30 Saturday afternoon. At 1 o'clock Prosecutor Andrew called upon the justice and requested the case tie dismissed. The request was based upon the statement that Norn's would be unable to produce the evidence ' necessary by the time set for trial and no doubt the knowledge of the man's character had something to do with the discision arrived at. At the time of the desmissal of the case the doctor was in Walkerton after evidence to prove an alibi when he received a telegram .that the case was dismissed. The doctor has affidavits from reliable •men at Walkerton showing that be was in that town at the time that he is charged with being in Kosciusko county. That, the whole thing so far as Norris is concerned is a blackmailing scheme all are well satisfied, as the character of Doctor Schutt is well known here, afd the character of Norris is not above reproach, but on the contrary his alleged crookedness was well-known."

Indianapolis News: Mr. Magee is one of the members who will not submit to an adverse report of a committee on one of his bills without a bitter fight. When the Judiciary Committee this morning "sat upon" Mr. Magee's bill. : against-usury, the author made his usual fight. He said it was simply the re-enactment of an old law of 1852, providing that any ^person/who collects more .than 8 per -cent, interest shall .forfeit five time's .the amount of the debt. He insisted -so.hard .that the committee's report •should not be concurred in, that his plea was granted and the judgment A JProfcablc Promotion. Lafayette Courier; There, is an understanding in Catholic circles that Rev. Father Edwin P. Walters, the eminent and honored pastor of St. Mary's Church,, .of this city, will at no distant date be exalted to the sacred office of Bishop, his location to be decided by the Provincial Council of the church. The report could not be definitely verified, but a number of prominent Catholics interviewed to-day said that such an event was in the nature of a strong probability; though none were willing to anticipate the action of the Vatican at Rome. While all would be delighted'to have Father Walters thus honored, general regret was expressed at the possibility of his re- ty where such mortgage is placed, and at a fair cash value of said mortgage. 15, A.law making it the duty 'of county commissioners ' to appoint a commission, consisting of one person from each of the political parties, whose duty it shall be to investigate the books and accounts of township trustees every quarter, and that the result of their investigation be published in at least two of the newspapers of the county where such investigations occurs, and that compensation for such commission be 'provided. 16 That we demand of those representing us the State.

Curious Instances of "Their Being Seen Long Distances from Homo. • The denizens of the Cocos islands, in the Indian ocean, were recently startled by the appearance of a huge crocodile among them. The monster did a good deal of damage before he was placed hors de combat by .-the terrified islanders, and his- carcass was conveyed forthwith to Mr. Ross, the "King of the Cocos," who, in the belief of the natives, "knoweth all things." Mr. Boss was completely puzzled, for such a thing as a crocodile has hitherto been unknown in these islands, and as tbe nearest land is Java, seven hundred miles distant, the adventurous croc' must have had a good sjrim of it, The condition arrived at is that the saurian must have voyaged from either Java or the North Australian coast— likely enough the latter, as there are g-oodly sized rivers there, down which tha crocodiles often float on logs and heaps of debris and get carried off to sea. The incident has evoked an interesting communication from A. L. Caldwell, of the A. S. Corps, Chatham, who Was quartered'in Barbadoes in 1885 and who relates that in the-beginning of that year an alligator over fifteen feet in length.went ashore on that island. A sergeant of engineers aud some sappers shot it as it crawled ashore, and it -was exhibited for some time in Bridgetown. The nearest point' this alligator could have reached Barbadoes from was the Orinoco, three hundred miles off, but Mr. Caldwell thinks this impossible, as the.set of the ocean currents-would have carried it much to the 'westward of Barbadoes, if its starting point-had been the mouth of the Orin-' oco.-' He thinks it is much more prolK able that, the alligator'came from the rnoutb- of the Amazon ior from the Essequibo, some hundreds of miles further to the east. : . in -connection with this Barbadoes alligator incident, remarks the Colonies and India, it maybe remembered that Dr. Mitchell, of Trinidad, stated at the time Aint he once saw an alligator on a small log attacked by .sharks in the Gulf .of Paria. In any case, the West Indies for the present must play second to the East Indies in the matter of a large swimming saurian, as the seven hundred miles accomplished by the crocodile recently killed on the Cocos establishes a record.—Chicago Herald.
