Ttublie D. Cole, of Wisconsin, protest

either to the Prohibitionists or national
party. He said It would be useless and
futile to go tr. the Oei man voters of

were coupled with these side issues that
were of no moment at this time. A

St. Louis, July 23. At ten minutes
past ten Senator Butler, of North Caro
lina, the temporary chairman, called the
Populist convention to order. At thut
time the body of the hall was about
two-thirds full and there were probably
not 2(H) persons in the galleries.
After prayer the chairman called for
the report of the committee on creden
tials but that committee was still un
prepared to report and was given fur
ther time. The roll of states was then
culled for the names of committees on
organization, resolutions and notifica
tion of nominees. Thut o-rntlon wus
slow and occupied much tin.e. The
heut was very oppressive.
At 11.35 the committee on platform left
the convention to meet at the Lincoln
hotel, Kugeiie Debs entered the con
vet. tion and was greeted with cheers.
Mr. Washburn, of Massachusetts, of
fert d the following resolution:
Whrreas, We ure all Populists and de.
precate an attack which has appeared In
seme u! the newspaners thut there Is il
ilb'.'iosition on the part of any portion of
this convention tu refuse to abide by thu
ucllon of the conviiMnn; therefore,

of the nir.mbeM of this convention to tho
Stiong opposition wus Immediately
developed to this motion on the part of
delegates f.oni the southern states and
the puint of oidei was made that the
convention, not being yet permanently
organized, it was out of order.
This was followed by a number of mo
tions mid the chulr became Involved in
u hopeless parliamentary tangle, from
which he finally extricated himself by
declaring the motion tabled.
A motion to lake a recess till 3 o'clock
was finally successful, and the tem
porary chairman at U'.45 declared the
convention adjourned until that hour.
St. Louis. July 23. The convention re
assembled during the hottest portion of
an oppressively hot day. Most of the
delegates set uslde all idea of personal
dtvilty or of the proprieties of the oc
caslon, und divested themselves of
coats, vests and shirt colluis.
C iiM M ITTKKS UEPO If P.
It was half past three when Senator
BuUer culled the convention to order
and stuted thut the committee on cre
dentials was prepared to make partial
report. Thereupon Mr. Wardell, of
California, chairman of the committee,
came to the stand and submitted a ma
jority report, recommending that the
delegates be recognized In all the un
contested cases; that in the cases of the
first seven Illinois congressional dis
tricts both contestants and contestee.4
be seated with the right to cast half
Votes, und that In the case of Colorado
the delegates known as the Patterson
delegates be seated and cast the full
votes of the state. Minority reports,
the chairman stated, would be submit
ted In these cases.
Thut part of the report of the admis
sion of the delegates where seats were
uncontested was agreed to.
The Illinois case was then taken up.
Tl e report of the majority declares
that the Taylor delegates from Cook
county, Illinois, are not entitled to the
seats, and thut the contestants are. The
minority report Is therefore for the Tay
lor delegates. .
Mr. Morun. of Nebraska, moved the
adoption of the minority lepori, and
Mr. Denning, of Virginia, moved the
adoption of the majority report.
Mr. Palmer, of Illinois, opened the
dlwusslon In support of the minority
report, therefore seating the Taylor del
egutes. The contestants, he suid, did
not represent the Peoples party of Cook
county, but represented a certain ele
ment In Chicago. He declared thut the
case had not been decided on its merits
by the committee on incidentals.
Some delegate intimated that the
"certain element In Chicago," alluded to
by Mr. Palmer, was the anarchistic ele
ment, but Mr. Palmer disavowed mak
ing any such charge.
The majority report was defended by
Mr. C. L. Dnt row, of Illinois, the lawyer
who defended Kugene Debs. He said
that he would make no insinuations
where he dared to state no fuels. The
case he declared, hud been carefully
considered lust night by the committee
on credentials and the decision of the
committee was an honest and fair one.
No one had yet been heard to give a
reason why that decision should not
stand. Mr. Jerry Simpson, of Kansas,
spoke for the minority report.
The vote was then taken on the mi
nority report on the Cook county (Illi
nois) case that the delegates are en
titled to the seats, the roll of states
being called on the question.
The vote was taken in the most ex
traordinary manner. Instead of voting
aye or no on the question before them
the adoption of minority report most
of the delegates voted upon both re
ports at the name lime. In this hap
hazard way the sense of the conven
tion was reached and it wus found that
they were cast: For the minority re
port seating the Taylor delegates from
Ctiok county M2 votes. For the major
ity reort seating both delegations with
a half vote filia Votes.
This result was announced by the
chair (Mr. Washburn, of Illinois, who
had temporarily relieved Senator But
ler), nmld a scene of great confusion.
It was urged by the chair in reply to a
question that the Illinois delegations
had voted on their own case though no
one had heard Illinois called. It was
Incidentally disclosed during the roll
call that the vote of Louisiana, hud
been Increased by the committee on
credentials from 13 to 32 without any
report being made in regard thereto.
The roll call also gave public Informa
tion for the first time of the number
of votes assigned each state under the
elastic rules ot the convention.
' The voting sttength of each tttate was
n folio yn: Al ilama. CI; Arkansas, 25;
California, 39; Colorado, 45; Connecti

' An Illinois delegate challenged the
correctness of the tally, saying that he
had kept a close count and that the
real result was 665 for the minority re
port and 612 for the majority report.
The challenge was eventually with
drawn and the majority report was de
clared adopted, seating both delega
tions from Cook county. The vote
having been announced, the Illinois del
egates withdrew for consultation.
Mr. Cole, the contestant, occupied the
first five minutes arguing his own side.
Robert Schilling, of Wisconsin, advo
cated the majority report (admitting
Isaacs) and characterized the dragging
of Mr. Bryan's name Into the argument
as mere pettifogging.
The minority reports (to seat Cole In
stead of Isaacs) was voted down and
the majority report (giving the seat to
Isaacs) was adopted.
Sl'COKSTION FROM PF.NCR.
Lafe Pence, remarking that all the
contests had now been disposed oi said
it was full time to have u permanent
organization bf the convention, and he
moved thut a special committee be ap
pointed to act on the committee of per
manent organization and ask it to re
port its action, but on being Informed
that the committee was ready to report
he withdrew his motion and inquired
where the committee was. (Laughter).
The report from the committee on per
manent organization was about to be
presented when points uf order were
made the committee on credentials hud
the right of way until its full report was
made. The chairman (Mr. Washburn,
of Massachusetts), overruled these ob
jections and amid uproar, announced
thut Mr. Cox, of Virginia, chairman of
the committee on permiiuent organiza

Mr. Cox stated the recommendation
of the committee, the name of Senator

proceeded to call the states and with
the prevalent turmoil and uproar, thnt
wus a slow process. It was almost
quite dark before the result of the vot

obtained, and it looked as If the con
vention would be compelled to adjourn
on account of the absence of light.
TURN THKRR WAS LIGHT.
But to the surprise of all, the electric
current was turned on at 7.30, and there

the building were In order. The vote
wus announced at K.05 p. m. as: For

As soon as the vote was announced
the Bryan section of the convention
broke into a .wild shout of triumph,
delegates standing up and vociferating
and waving hats and fans and again a
procession of guidon took up the march
through the convention hall, yelling
demonically. The band took part In the
performance with the strains of "Hall
Columbia" and ether patriotic airs.
Finally at 8.20 some degree of order
was restored, when Mr. Watklns, of
California, stepped to the platform and
said that the Campion men (of whom
he was one) had fought a grand fight,
and had been squarely whipped, nnd
now he moved to make the nomination

July 23. Governor's day has come and'
gone. It came In with a clear, biuo
sky and a gentle breeze, and the 1E.01M)
enthusiastic visitors who came in with
the day saw It go in a blaze of gloiy.
which will mark It as a red letter day
In the history of the national guard.
From morning until night there was a
continuous round of events, which
trebly repaid the spectators for the
trouble of coming here and from tho
splendid division drill in the morning
to the glimmering and magnificent re
view by Governor Hustings In the af
ternoon there was no cessation of en
tertainment and not a single event
which was not highly Interesting.
At 7 o'clock in th morning the three
troops of cavalry were Inspected by
Mayor ""Sweeney and found to be lu
splendid form. The drills were excep
tionally line. The inspections over the
bugles sounded through each brigad
es in p the calls for the division drill,
which was in reality the feature of the
day, as It was the first division drill
that has been conducted since the close
of the rebellion. The muneuvres were
ns well executed aa they were brilliant,
and General Snowden was highly com
plimented for his bold Innovation. The
heavy masses of troops as the entire
division covered the plain In front of
the generals' headquarters were viewed
with Interest by the regular army of
ficers. CONSUMED OVKli AN HOUR.
The muneuvreg consumed a little over
an hour and were highly commented
on by Colonel Sumner, of the Sixth
I'nlted States cavalry, who reprerents
the war department In camp. He said
thnt he had never before seen a divi
sion drill and the celerity with which
they nianeuevered was amazing to him.
He had not believed that the move
ments could have been executed In less
than twice the time actually consumed
and he was thoroughly delighted at
witnessing such an exhibition of ef
ficiency. As the various commands marched
back to their quarters for dinner, the
great crowd of visitors spread through
the camp, either fn picnic parties or
lunching In the mess tents of the vari
ous commands. But even then, there
was little let up to the entertainment,
for after a drill full of exciting pistol
and sabre charges by Captain West's
troop O, of the Sixth United States
cavalry, I.U'Utenant Brooks' famous
Troop K, of the same regiment, was or
dered out In front of division head
quarters and gave one of their great
hurdle and bareback riding exhibitions.
As the troop galloped back to their
quarters Captain Lancaster came out
with his crack Battery C, of the Third
artillery. United States army, and gave
a fancy drill, which was greeted with
THR DIVISION REVIEW.
At 4 o'clock the division was reviewed
by the governor. As each command
passed the reviewing stand It was

THIRTEENTH WAS FORTUNATE.
Und a Fine Opportunity to See Part
of Division Review.
Siieelal from u Staff Correspondent.
The Thirteenth wns pal ticulurly for
tunate In their afternoon's review, as
the Third brigade was the first to pass
division headquarters and all Its regi
ments were dismissed after rounding
the hill a. short distance beyond tho
reviewing point. This was necessary
because the field In front of the Third
brigade's quarters was occupied by the
other two brigades waiting to follow
the line. This gave the 2.500 num In
the brigade1 an opportunity to witness
the middle and last part of the spec

most attention. While the rivalry be
tween the First and Thirteenth Is in

spirit of peculiar f) lendlltiess among
the men, when off duty. The First's
soldiers look over the Thirteenth's
camp and vice versa.
