At its meeting in Junction City on December 17, 1890, the Geary County Farmer's Alliance and Industrial Union appointed a committee of John Hay, J. L. Hulse and Jas. H. Gabby to report to the group on how farmers might be more profitable. They reported on Jan. 10, 1891, and their plan was adopted by the Geary County Farmer's Alliance and Industrial Union. It calls for farmers to work together to impact prices and supplies rather than being at the mercy of purchasers and speculators. It encouraged an effort to jointly hold back cattle from the Kansas City market for one day in an effort to increase the prices paid to farmers.
