THE STATE ALLIANCE
Election of Officers and Discussion of Resolutions
MONTGOMERY, ALA., August 7.—The second day’s meeting of the State Farmers Alliance in this city is of unusual interest among its members. Nothing absolutely is known outside what is going on, but enough is known to justify the very general believe that a big fight is now being made over a resolution endorsing the resolutions adopted at St. Louis by the National Farmers Alliance. There is said to be considerable opposition among certain members to the sub-treasury plank in the St. Louis platform of principles. At this morning’s session Rev. S. M. Adams, of Bibb, was re-elected President; J. A. Downs, of Elmore, was elected Vice-President, and J. P. Oliver, of Tallapoosa, Secretary.
