J. H. Turner, secretary of the State Farmers' Alliance of Missouri, said in a recent interview with a St. Louis GlobeDemocrat reporter: We are in a state of quiet activity a Allianee headquarters in this eity, pre paring f or the meeting in February nex of the presidenta of the State Alliances which will be held here. Thirty Stat Alliances will be represented, and this meeting will elect a legislativa coinmit tee, whose duty it will be to attend to the engrafting, as far as possible, of Alliance principies into legislation. The order is growing very f ast. On Nov. 2( the State Alliance of California was or ganized, and by December of this yea we will have State Alliances in Wash ington, üregon, Idaho and Arizona Those of Ohio and Iowa will be organ ized by April next. Though very of ten solicited to do so, the National Allianc has refused to interfere in state politics Our policy is to edúcate and not to agi tate. When the people are edncated they must of theniselves decide what is bes for them to do. The Farmers' Alliance leaders do not dictate. It is too early to predict what will be done in 1892. Som of the Alliances in the west are anxioua for a third party. I do not think, how ever, tbat this plan will be adopted.
