Wlllttt, N. Y July 22. A heated pol
itical argument between Rollund Ix
Witt and his wife, at Stantonvllle, end
ed when Holland received a severe
(lugging at the hands of hfs lrute inoth-er-ln-luw,
who will be prosecuted for
assuult. The De Witts are among the
must prominent and influential resi
dents of Stantonvllle. Holland Lie Witt
occupies a fertile farm adjoining that
of Mrs. Adeline Stanton, his inother-ln-luv,
from whose deceased husband the
little settlement took its name. The Lie
Witts and Stantons have always been
Democrats, but Blnce the Chicago con
vention Holland l)e Witt has declared
to his neighbors that he would not
auppurt the free silver ticket find pro
posed to vote for the Hepublican nom

by his wife and mother-in-law, the lut
ter frequently referring to her son-in-law
as a traitor, deserter and friend
Holland had retaliated by character
izing the supporters of the Chicago
ticket as a clique of anarchists, popu
lists and crazy fanatics. Lust evening,
while at the supper table, De Witt and
his wife became engaged in a political
discussion, and Mrs. De Witt informed
her husbimd that he was losing his best
friends by bolting the regular ticket.
"Name them!" exclaimed De Witt,
springing from his chair.
"Mother is disgusted with your
course," continued Mrs. De Witt, "and
"I am not controlled in politics or any
thing else by a mother-in-law," inter
rupted De Witt, becoming more excited.
"She van attend to .her own business
nd I will attend to mine."
The mother-in-law huppened to enter
the house at this time. De Witt had
resumed his seat at the table, and was
first apprised of her presence when he
felt the stinging blows from a horse
whip descending in rapid succession
upon his head and shoulders.
Mrs. Stanton had taken the whip from
corner of the room as she entered.
"Take this and this and thin for your
Insults!" cried the angry woman, as
he rained the blows upon her aston
ished son-in-law, who made several

Mrs. De Witt rushed from the room,
but her mother did not leave until she
compelled De Witt to beg for mercy.
Then she joined her daughter, and both
went to 'the Stanton homestead. Roil

Ma neighbors advise him to do so.
UNITED AFTER LONG COURTSHIP.
Judge tiibson and Mist Van Hook
Married at t'hark-stown, Ind.
JeffersonvlUe, Ind., July 22. After a
courtship of twenty-five years, Qeorge
H. D. Gibson, judge of the Clark county
circuit court, and Miss Jennie Van
Hook, one of the most prominent ladles
of this section, were married at Clmrles
town, fourteen mile from here, at S
o'clock this evening. The ceremony
wa performed by Elder P. C. Mcdow

acted. Hence a premium on It will not
contract the currency. The utmost pos
sible contraction of the currency will be
the few millions circulating on the Pacific
coast, and this will be retired but slowly.
A similar threat of a flight of gold was
made for the Bland Act of 1878. President
Hayes was urged to veto It. but eonsn-sa
passeft-lt over the veto. Instead of a flight
of gold as had been predicted, we gained

year. During the twelve years that the
act was on the statute book we gained

destruction of our credit abroad, as had
been predicted, the lnited States 4 per
cent, loan, which stood at 101 on the day
of the enactment, sold at 120 per cent,
within three years, and at 130 per cent,
subsequently. Instead of defeating the
resumption of specie payments on Janu
ary Hrst of the following year the 24.rt,i:'
silver dollars which were coined In 167
and circulated by means of the sliver cer
tificates, reduced the demand upon the
government for gold. Hence, the threat
of dlsuster now is without historic foun
dation. This. then. Is what will follow the re

Mr. St. John's assumption that the
convention would prevail upon the pa
triots' calling themselves the People's
party to endorse Bryan and Sewall waa
received with great applause, continu
ing for nearly a minute. The assertion
that the threatened flow of silver from
the east hail no force and thut the en
tire stock of gold In the country would
be retired, was also without force, for
all of It but ten or fifteen millions, cir
culating on the Pacific, coaiit, had ul
rendy been retired, were greeted with
loud applause. The effect of the speech
upon the delegates wus most happy,
nearly every sentence being followed
by enthusiastic manifestations of ap
proval. When Mr. St. John concluded many
delegates rose to their feet and cheered.
The next business in order, Chairman
St. John announced, wus the appoint
ment of special committees. O. W.
Baker, of California, moved the ap
pointment of a committee consisting of
one from each state to meet a similar
committee from the Populist committee
to take up the questions of differences
between the two parties for the purpose
of coming to some rational agreement,
to the end that the nomination of Bryan
and Sewull might be ratltled by the two
conventions. .Mr. Olmsted, of Oregon,
speuklng for the Populists, and as one
of the leaders of the party of that
state, seconded the motion, making the
suggestion that each state delegation
select Its representative on the commit
tee. The motion was further seconded
b' delegates from Missouri and Virgi
nia. A delegate usked If any one knew
that the Populists were ready to confer
with the silver party. Mr. Olmsted,
sj esklng for the Populists, again re
siumled that they were ready to meet
the sliver men anywhere, and he urged
the silver men to meet the People's
party half way.
POPULISTS ON THEIR DIGNITY.
Some desultory discussion ensued as
to the propriety of the silver men mak
ing the first advances. Mr. Olmsted
again addressed the convention, stating
that the two conventions were called
to meet here today In order to consoli
date the free silver forces for the cam
paign. The Populists being the older
party and having always stood for free
silver. It would 111 become their dignity,
he thought, for them to take the first
Mr. Porter, from Virginia, and a dele
gate from Ohio, seconded the motion
and urged that the great end of united
and harmonious action be kept In view.
A delegate from Illinois offered as a
substitute for Baker's motion one to
the effect that each state delegation se
lect a member of this conference com
mittee und that the Populist conven
tion be notified of the action with a re
quest that a similar committee be ap
pointed by that body.
A delegate asked If It were the inten
tion to await the report of the proposed
committee before proceeding to nomi
nate Bryan and Sewall. (Cries of no).
"What's the use of appointing It, then?"
he asked, but no one answered.
MR. SHINN TURNED DOWN.

lists. There waa really no difference
between the two bodies. (Cries of
"mistake") and he believed the effect of
the motion upon the Populist conven
tion would be different from that in
tended by its author. He believed that
the convention would do Its duty.
Shlnn was frequently interrupted by
cries and applause, to all of which he
stated that he would speak until he had
finished. But he was mistaken. The
chairman made the point of order that
he had spoken more than once to the
motion and the point was sustained by
Chairman St. John, who directed Shlnn
to take his seat.
The roll of states was called and New
Jersey named J. H. McCullough and
Pennsylvania J. A. Wright. After the
committee had been nominated a dele
gate asked the chair what the commit
tee would confer about. Chalrmun St.
John said he had no other Information
than had the questioner, but he in

of level headed men and had but one

St. Louis. July 22. Chairman Taube
neck called the national Populist con
vention to order at 12.30. After prayer
by Rev. W. R. L. Smith, of the Third
Baptist church of St. Louis, Governor
William J. Stone, of Missouri, delivered
an address of welcome, lie said:
"Mr. Chairman und Gentlemen of the
Convention: 1 come to extend a genu
ine ami hearty welcome to the hospitali
ties of the state "to which 1 have the
honor to be the executive officer. Free
dom of opinion, of religion, political and
social, and all othe.- situations, free
dom of action so long as the exercise
of that freedom does not disturb public
order or trench on the Just rights of
others, are cardinal principles in our
great governmental system. (Ap
plause). "In this stute we seek to give to that
basic Idea Its best possible expression.
We differ as to methods, and we dirfe.
often as to policies and principles, but
It Is to be devoutly hoped thut all of us
uie actuated by love of country and by
motives of the greatest patriotism. (Ap
plause). You are met. gentlemen. In a
crucial period (as I esteem It) not only
of party history, but or national his
tory. It Would be unbecoming of me to
make any suggestion whatever as to the
duty of this convention. I can, how
ever, without Impropriety, say that I
hope that every gentleman occupying a
seat In this great body will perform
the Important and responsible duty Im
posed upon him with an eye single to
the public good, to the development of
our country and to the promotion of the
felicity of our people und the glory of
Hon. Ignatius Donnelly, of Minne
sota, responded to Governor Stone's ud
dress of welcome. The selection of the
center of this great valley for the con
vention of the People's party, he said,
was particularly appropriate, because
this movement was an outgrowth from
the agricultural and laboring people of
this country. It began at a million tire
sides, where the farmer in silence of
IiIk home studied out for himself the
causes of the afflictions he endured and
united to llnd a remedy. Our city
friends, he continued, for a time regard
ed it us a movement hostile to them
selves. They never could be convinced
otherwise. It is at last duwnlng even
upon the minds of our far eastern cities
that In assenting to the evil conditions
that now surround us, they have de
stroyed their own prosperity. (Cheers).
While reaching out for foreign muikets
where they must encounter the hos
tility of the whole world, they have per
mitted their own natural murket, of
which they hud the monopoly, to fall
Into poverty and wretchedness, and
they are today In sackcloth and ashes
feeling the result of thut mistaken pol
icy. (Loud cheers).
AN APPEAL FOR UNITY.
Mr. Donnelly closed by making an
eloquent appeal for unity. "I stood, he
said, at the cradle of the old Greenback
party. (Cheers). I stood ut the cradle
of the People's party. God forbid I
shoulJ le here today to attend Its fu
neral. Stand together, friends. Lift
up your heurts to the majesty and the
dignity of the duties laid upon your
shoulders. Mr. Donnelly said the men
of Valley Forge had no more sublime
and tremendous duty than we have to
day. No man, however great, Is worth
u scintilla against the interests of this
The chairman asked such members of
the executive committees as were In
the body of the hall to step up to the
platform. Among those who thus ad
vanced was Mrs. Mary KUen Lease,
who was warmly cheered. Chairman
Taubeneck Introduced us temporary
chairman of the convention, Senator
Marion Butler, f North Carolina, who
was received with three cheers, which
he characterized as "a cyclone of pa
triotism." All history taught, he said,
that history showed that there always
came crises in the affairs of men when
humanity was raised to a higher level,
accordingly us the men on whose
shoulders the responsibility rested were
able to meet the crisex with wisdom
and patriotism (cheers), and to solve It
to the betterment of humanity, two
political parties, he said, hud held na
tional conventions this year, had adopt
ed platforms, and had put forward
their leaders, and now another good
political party, young but a growing
giant in strength, had assembled to
speak to the American people In this
critical and Important hour (cheers).
The Populists were here because there
wus need of them to be here. The
parties that had had charge of the
government since the war had succeed
ed in bringing the nation to the verge
of bankruptcy and ruin, and had neces
sitated the existence of the Populist
n pt m i
organization. The two parties had vied
with each other in "straddling.'' and
now "straddling" was a thing of the
past. He went on to speak of the
transportation question as standing
side by side with the money question,
and declared that both these great
questions would have to be solved be
fore the country got back to prosperity.
The standard oil trust, he declared,
would not exist today. If it was not for
Its copartnership with the transpor
INFLUENCE OP THE PEOPLE'S
If the People's party were to go out
of existence the next Democratic na
tional convention would report a plat
form on which Bryan would not stand
(cheers). The 'People's party had
raised an Issue so universal, so great,
so imuortant that it had spilt both the
old parties in two (laughter and ap
plause). Now this1 convention hud met
to save that issue or to allow It to go
down in death. He had faith that this
convention would not turn Itself into
a Democratic annex (loud cheers) or
Into a Hepublican annex (more cheers).
But would lind a way between them
that was true and right. What. Sena
tor Butler asked, should this conven
tion do? And he was answered by one
of the California delegates, Mr. Alfred
Daggett, "nominate a straight Populist
candidate on a Populist platform, with
out reference to what the Democratic
convention has done" (cheers).
"While this party lives," Senator But
ler exclaimed, "and God grant thut it
shall never die, because it will be ever
needed so long as human liberty Is
threatened, it must be true to the mis
sion which it was born to uccomullsh.
(Cheers). If this convention cannot fol
low Its own teachings, it is unworthy
to tepresent the People's party. (Ap
plause). What Is your duty today? It
Is to endorse and approve what Is right
und tu condemn what Is wrong. No
other course Is true populism. The mis
sion of the People's party has been to
strike down what Is wrong and to hold
up what Is right. If you wuver in your
principles (a delegate 'we will not do It')
then you become no better than the old
parties which you were raised to de
stroy. "I believe that this convention Is go
ing to do the wise thing. I believe ti.at
it is going to stand together. It Is not
going to split. (Cheers). We have
split both the old parties. We did It on
a principle, but we ourselves will
not split, because we stand upon
the principle and are not going
to be foolish enough to split upon
details. (Cheers). If we stund togeth
er and go a nay a united band of
brothers, we will strip for the fray, und
we will see next November that the
minions of organized capital, und of
gold monopolists are stricken down in
this country. We will show you, too,
that this young giant of the People's
party will come out of the campaign
stronger than we go into It. (Cheers).
Remember thut you have accomplished
more tn four years than the old parties
have accomplished in 100 years. And.
remember, too, that If we do our duty at
this trying hour, the time Is not far
distant when we will be the majority
party of the country."
Senator Butler spoke for an hour,
closing his speech at 2 p. m. He wus
congratulated upon it by Ignatius Don
nelly and other persons on the stand.
MKS. LEASE GAUGED.
When Senator Butler resumed his
seat. Some cries were raised for a
speech from Mrs. Lease, but the chair
iun directed the secretary to cull thu
roll of states, to inline the committees
on credentials and resolutions. This
was done. New Jersey named William
B. Kills and I.. l' Fuller, und Pennsyl
vania J. H. Stensou and C. F. Taylor,
Un motion of Mr. Donnelly, of Minne
sota, the convention at 2.15 o'clock took
a recess until 8 p. m. to enable the com
mittee on credentials to report.
After the recess was taken, the con
vention resolved Itself into an informal
mass meeting, und Congressman How
ard, of Alabama, who. It will be re
membered. Introduced a resolution to.
impeach President Cleveland, spoke for
ten minutes. He made a bitter attack
upon the Democratic party, and advo
cated standing on an independent tick
et. He wus followed by other speakers,
who urged standing for the People's
party issue tlrst. last and all the time.
A DARK SESSION.
When the Populists got together in
convention hall this evening they found
themselves in trouble. No provision
hud been made for lighting the hall.
Neither gas nor electricity gave a ray of
light. The candles provided by the
newspaper correspondents and the tele
graph companies for their own use
served to make the darkness Intense
and more picturesque. There was a
full attendance on the flour and many
spectators in the galleries.
For half an hour humorously Inclined
people In the galleries and on the floor
Indulged In Jokes at the expense of the
Populists and Jeers and college yells
prevailed. Finally the patience of the
managers was exhausted; there was
no prospect of the electric light being
turned on, and yielding to the neces
sities of the case, it was announced at
8.50 p. tu. that the convention had ad
journed until 10 a. m. tomorrow.
