6 AUSTIN WEEKLY STATESMAN. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 11,1886. WEEKLY STATESMAN. TilH I.AWSOKTKAOE. The Farmers' Alliance deny thnt they have participated by any official action with the boycott of the Miillory line by the Knight of Labor. The Farmers' Alliance, or the I'litmns of Hunbandry, is a very conoervativc, buMineHH-like and practical association. Their only object in alliance is to buy what they need without the intervention of middlemen or commission merchants, and while they felicitate themselves on this kind of avoidance, they forget in their enthusiasm ol the order, that tlirir aid agents, perhaps, cost them more than the tax upon tlio u;ood-t purchased by their own agents. This delusion is a happy tiling for them, and it is well that they congratulate them Helves on the shrewdness of the device. Many men acting as their special agents have become very wealthy by the monop oly of their business that they havo been enabled to Ox upon the dealings of the farmers by the ingenuity ...

There has not been ft time in many years when both houHes of congress con tained bo few pre-eminent and acknowl edged leaders as at present occupy seats therein. In the senate the democratic side is the weakest in this respect, while in the house the republicans suffer most by the comparison. If these conditions were exactly reversed it would perhaps more nearly equalize matters in a politi cal sense, for as the case now stands it is the minority side in each house that is weakest in leadership, and there is noth ing that more closely resembles a forlorn hope in a legislntivo body than a minority inadequately led. The majority, with a friendly presiding officer, will generally pull through in the face of a deficiency of commanding leadership, and...
