Smith drew up his regiment and opened

very different to be compelled to live

Some colored camp followers attempt

the Third regiment yesterday. Ten of
them were loafing around the stables,

BROWN HOIST WORKS STRIKE
Soldier Fire Several Shots at Rioters
About the Sceue of Action.
Cleveland, July 21. Soldiers at the
Brown Hoist works fired several shots
Into the yards of the H. P. Nail works
lust night, bayonetted a motorman to
make him stop his car, and arrested
two men who had claimed yelled "scab"
as the wagons containing non-union
men were parsing along Wilson ave
nue. The disturbance commenced on
the Clevelund and Pittsburg railway
tracks, when a picket was stoned from
the II. P. Nail works yards. The
picket came up to the gate of the boil
er house and threatened to shoot. He
was greeted with a shower of bricks,
one of which landed under his ear and
sent him to the ground. The picket
tired u shot Into the yards. Other
pickets came anil they fired too.
On good authority It is understood
that Mr. Brown has stated to the state
board of arbitration that If the men
will return to work as Individuals they
will be granted the right of representa
tion by committees of craftsmen. This
would be a concession on the part of
Brown to the locked out men.

New York. July 21. President Fred

to Increase the amount to $20,OW.ooo
Some of the trust compunles which have

by telephone that he would interest the

been the heartiest co-operation by the
bunks. The list will not be completed

for the Heiiin bankers to obtain gold in
New York than in London or elsewhere.
The situation may change so that it
will bi' cheaper to get gold In London."
Washington, July 21. Acting Secre

St. Louis, July 21. The "Siamese
twin" conventions, which will meet
here tomorrow in different halls, but
ut the same hour, will have as the liga
ture that binds them together in a
settled purpose only the free silver
plank of the Chicago platform. There
Is no uttempt to disguise the truth that
on all other Issues the two conventions
will be hopelessly divided.

paramount issue it had to consider was
"the gold standard, gold bonds and

PI KPOSE OF SILVETUTKrt.
The national silver party Is to meet
at what Is known as the "Music Hall."
Its con i. -e will be ull pluin sailing. It
has only one purpose in view- the en
dorsement of free coinage of silver. It
will listen wjth more or less attention to
Ioii.t. Belli Uirly addresses from Francis
G. Newlands. of Nevada, "the silver
He" congressman, it n chosen tempor
ary president, and from William I. St.
John, of New York, ex-banker, who
will be the permunent president. This
body will In ull probability follow its
programme which Is to endorse the Chi
cago nominees on a silver platform. Is
sue an address to the pewple, and either
adjourn promptly or either prolong the
convention by long speeches until its
more turbulent neighbor has concluded
Its proceedings. The People's party
will assemble In the same hall which
recently echoed with the name of Mc
Klnley as tlie Republican nominee. As
the course of its proceeding will be. the
claims of the two factions are tonight
iulte us divergent as they have ever
been. The presence of Senator Jones,
of Arkansas, chairman of the Dem
ocratic national executive committee,
and his freiiuent interviews with promi
nent Popull.'t delegates has naturnlly
glveii rise to rumors that a "deal" was
on which would secure the Indorse
ment of Bryan and Sewall by the con
ventlon und such a recognition of the
People's parly as would Induce them
to sink for the time being their own
T. V t.KNECK'S DISCLAIMEU.
Against this theory Mr. Tuubeneck,
chalriiicn of the People's party, inter
poses tlie strongest kind of a disclaim
er, asserting with vehemence that the
Populists Intend to nominate candidates
of their owu upon a platform of their
There has been all day strong talk of
nominating a southern Populist for the
second place on the ticket, even If Bry
an should secure sufficient strength to
be endorsed for first place.
Hut shrewd manipulators who are
managing matters say that "the tail
goes with the hide," uud that if they
carry Bryan through (of which they
have no doubt) Sewall will follow.
The "middle of the road" men on the
other hand, are claiming to have carried
everything before them. They held a
meeting tonight and counted twenty
states as with them. In a determina
tion not to Indorse the Chicago ticket.
But their opponents assert that they
counted all the recalcitrant Bryan men
as representing their states, whereas
the full delegation, if polled would have
been adverse to them,
Hoth sides seem at a loss to estimate
the slgnilieaiice of the selection of Sen
ator Muiion Butler, of North Carolina,
by the national committee as the tem
porary chairiuun of the convention. He
hus been claimed by each faction and
appears not to have committed him
self Irrevocably to either. This may
perhaps explain his unanimous selec
tion as the temporary presiding officer
of the convention. Thut it will be a
picturesque and curiously Interesting
gathering Is already assured. Among
those to. be present are Generul Weaver,
of Iowa, and Mr. Streator, of Illinois,
both former candidates for the presi
dency on the Populist ticket and Gener
al Fields, of Virginia, candidate four
years ago for the vice presidency.

NATIONAL COMMITTEE MEETS.
The national committee of the Popu
list party met at 10.30 this morn
ing to perfect the temporary or
ganization of the convention. Chair
man Taubeneck presided, and about
fifty members were present. This
committee Is organized upon a radi
cally different basis from that of
the old parties. Each state and terri
tory Ic entitled to three members, and
out of the entire membership of 153 a
central executive committee of two Is
chosen to manage the campaigns. There
were but two contests of Importance
those from Colorado and Illinois, The
former Involved the entire state dele-'
"'t'ot. tb" '"ttw h" ?7 flM"a from
Cook county (Chicago). The Colorado
contestants were headed by ex-Governor
Walte, but he having declared for
Bryan's nomination, his colleagues de
posed him for another leader. In the
matter of temporary chairman, the two
candidates were General James B.
Weaver, of Iowa, who repcesented the
Bryan and Sewall element, and Senator
Marion Butler of North Carolina, who
was opposed to the endorsement of the
Democratic ticket. ,
After the matter of membership of
the committee Itself had been deter
mined the committee preceded to con
sider applications by a number of states
for Increased representation In the con
vention. The basis upon which this
Is made by the national committee in Its
call is one delegate for each member
of congress, from the state, and an ad
ditional delegate for each 2.000 votes
cast at the preceding general election.
In making up the table of delegates for
this convention the national committee
was compelled to act upon data con
tained In the various presidential al
manacs and in the case of a number of
states this inl'ornintlon proved to be in
accurate. The committeeman from each
southern state demonstrated by certi
fied co)ies of the tabulation of voles in
his state that the 1'opullsts were en
titled to an Inereuse in the number of
delegates of from one to live, the latter
being allowed the state of Texas.
The several teriitories were ullowed

the interests of harmony thnt the two
delegations be seated, each member to
have half a vote. After some discus
sion Mr. Donnelly's motion wus agreed
to 4!l to IS. The committee then voted
to proceed to the selection of a tem
porary chairman and temporary secre
tary. The expectation that this would
afford a test of the Bryan and anti
Biyan strength In the convention was
not reulized, for the nnmo of General
Charles B. Weuver. of lova, who had
been spoken of ns the Bryan candidate
for the place wus not mentioned. Mr.

FOR INDEPENDENT ACTION.
St. Louis, July 21. The reform press
association, composed of Populists and
free silver newspapers, met In the head
quarters of the Texas Populists this
forenoon. A committee whose members
were J. M. Hallett, of Texas; A. P.
Tugwell, Washington; A. O. Brown,
Massachusetts; Frank Burkett, Missi
ssippi; M. W. Wllklns, California, and
Ignatius Donnelly, Minnesota; reported
an address, which was flat-footed for
Independent action by the Popullstic
convention. It denounced fusion or
conllHon with either of-the old parties
and declared emphatically against the
endorsement of Mr. Bryan. The read
ing of the address was followed by a
stormy scene. It was put through with
a rush, however, and the Kansas mem
bers of the association walked out of
the room to emphasise their disapprov
al. They drew up the following reso
lution and attached their signatures
thert to: "With the spirit of the resolu
tion we are In uccord. but believe that
the only way to relieve the people of
this country from gold-buglBm and Me
