ST. LOUI5, Feb. 23,-ProbabIy no more
sensational and turbulent scene was ever
witnessed at a great political gathering
thau the one startlingly presented this
afternoon in the big national industrial
conference. Southerners were pitted
against southerners, Farmers Alliance
men against Alliance men, aud for many
anxious minutes the convention seemed
about to break to pieces in riot and blood
shed. The extraordinary tumult took
place wheu the credentials committee pre
sented its final report. The fin,t portion
of the report consisted merely of recom
mendations for admitting to the conven
tion representathes from a number of or
ganizations that bad been overlooked.
Then came tho dynamite, in the form of a
decision of the credentials committee,
dividing the Georgia delegation between
the contesting elements, and seating two
pro-third party men.
WHO. COniUSlOU luuuncu. .'"" -"
nnrfri. nn anti-third party man, finally
got the floor, and raised the point that the
state gathering which h.ui selected his
delegation had given it instructions that it
should vote as a unit on all matters. If
Grant and Post would suornit 10 me unit,
mle he moved that the convention accept
the report. . .
In a twinkling Post was on his feet. He
was here, he said, as a delegate chosen by
the state Alliance and by tho executive
committee. Kineteen-tweniieths of the
state Alliance of Georgia vere in favor of
independent political action. Congress
man Livingston had declared in favor of
selecting delegates all of one opinion or
the other and had then chosen a set of
men whose plan and purpose it was to act
with the Democratic party; to betray the
Alliance, and to deliver it bound hand and
foot to the old Democratic ring.
Grant of Georgia, the other third party
man, followed in a similar vein. The up
roar increased unceasingly. The delegates
were shaking their fists in one another a
faces and the chairman's gavel falling
upoh the table produced no more etlect
thau rain drop-
Theappeaianco of E. Gerry Brown of
Massachusetts, chairman of the
oinniuue on credentials, caused
comparative quiet. The decision
of ihj committee, he said, was not
based on the question as to the old politi
cal parties, but the question of harmony
here, aud the conference must keep ni the
middle of the road. The committee acted
as fairly as it knew how, and internal dis
sension should be left to the Georgians to
settle among themfcelves.
Then came motions to adopt tho report,
and the fight was renewed with redoubled
Moses of Georgia took the floor. He
predicted that if the quarrel went much
further the Democrats would, as of old,
have the state of Georgia in their power.
They were splitting tho Alliance into num
berless parts. .
Hisses and cries of derision drowned
the concluding words of the speaker, and
indescribable coufosiou reigned for fully
Ellington of Georgia declared that the
executive committe of tho Georgia Al
liance had tried to thwart the will of the
people, in order to get the state more com
pletely in the bauds of the Democrats.
The speaker was grabbed by several by
staudeis and pulled into his seat. Moses
tried to get at him and a free iLjht seemed
unavoidable, but the angered men were
kept apart, and the convention, seeming
to suddenly realize the disgrace so near at
hand, took an astonishing right about
face. The proper motions wera- put, and
the report of the committee on credentials
was adopted, with only a long wail of
dissent from Georgia.
St. LOUIS, Feb. 23. "It has been said
that this convention today will be a Kil
kenny fight." This was the startlme
fashion in which Chairman Cannon today
onened the big convention of farmers and
laborers, which was supposed to be in
session to prepare the way for nominating
a candidate for the presidency of the
United fatates. Chairman Cannon rasp
mgiy proceeded, invitint? any would-be
leaders who were not present for harmoni
ous action to get out of the way or be
stepped upon. He then announced that
the committee on credentials would pre
sent a partial report.
The report recommended the seating of
24G delegates from the Farmers' Alliance,
53 from the Farmers' Mntnul Benent asso
ciation, 82 from the Knights of Labor, 97
from the National Farmers' Alliance, '.25
from the Nat.onal Citizen's Alliance, V!
from the Colored Farmers Mutunl Benefit
nuvttian. 27 from the National Citizen's
Independent Aihance, 73 from the Patron'
of Industry and 25 from tne Patron of
Husbandry. The Farmers' Alliance was
given 25 delegates at larce, and thirteen
minor detached organizations and indi
viduals were given a representation of 55.
The contest from Georgia was left with
the committee to be further wrestled with.
Ignstsus Donnelly moved as an amend
ment that Miks Frances Wiliard, Lady
Somerset, Clara Hoffman and F. EL In
alls be seated an delegates, representing
the National Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union. The amendment was greeted
with deafening cheers, and both the
amendment and the report were adopted.

A wrangle took place immediately, and
Simpson and Macuuo locked horns, to the
delight of the spectators. Tho redoubt
able Jerry objected to Macune's motion
to select a special committee to draw up
such a resolution, saying that a motion to
adjourn was not debitable.
General Weaver and Mr. Powderly
finally smoothed the feeling, of the com
batants by securing a recess of thirty
minutes, with the understanding that the
committo asked for by Dr. Macune be
appointed. Mr. Simoson, it he had any
nliifprioti to thn committee, deemed it- ad
visable to withdraw it, in view ot tho evi
dent strength of the oppositions
A change in the plan for the selection of
a platform committee, apparently in tho
interest of the larger organizations, as
distinguished from the smaller ones, was
made at the inst nce of Dr. Macune. iho
change created a platform committee of
most nnwieldy proportions.
The credentials committee sent in a sup
plemental report, seating Post and Grant,
the two third party delegate", whom it was
sought to shut ouc Pot. in the general
scramble for the floor, got it first, and, iu
the bitterest speech heard in the conven
tion, denouueed Congressman Livingston
of Georgia as attempting to hand over tho
Alliance in that state bound haud and foot
to the Democratic oarty. The excitement
caused by this accusation was intense, and
scores of the delegates were running about
waving their hands like bo many bedlam
ites. After an exchange of hot personal
ities and a scene of extraordinary confus
ion the report of the committee was
adopted by a large majority a substantial
triumph for the third party.
The long list of memoers of the platform
committee, after much confusion, was
Anally completed, making the committee
number 150 members. The announcement
of Mr. Poitasa Georgian member ot the
committee nearly started a personal en
counter between him and Mr. Mosos, a
fellow Georgian. The convention got tired
or the eternal squabbling in the Georgian
delegation, and plainly showed ft with
hises and cat-calls. Jerry Simpson sug
gested that half the Georgian delegation
be apportioned to Alaska, to gtvo them a
chance to cool off. Finally the Georgians
settled the deputes by makmir Mr Post a
platform committeeman and Mr Wilson,
an anti-third party man, a inunber of the

CLEVELAND AND HILL.
NEW Yor.K, Feb. 23. The Herald this
morning, commenting on yesterday's
Democratic i-onventinu. says that the cou
vention emphasized th fact of a very Kid
split in New York. Hill has the machine
w ithout doubt-, but he has uot got the peo
ple. Hill's policy, savs the Herald, ren
ders it uncertain lor himsolf or Cleveland.
"A western man." continues tho Herald,
"who has also the respect of the southa
man like Walt-rson, for instance with
Hill for second place, would be cvrtala to
carry New York and the country."
The World savs. "It is a long time be
tween now and June 2lst, nnd many things
may happen Jntho meantime to determino
the choice of the Democratic caudldato for
The Times says that Hill's endorsement
atthemoitor tho worst, can only servo
ns a hindrance to Cleveland's nomination.
That it will servo as an elective hindrance
the Titnos does not believe. That the
work of yesterday's convention can lead
to Hill's nomination tho limes regards as
a notion too absurd to be entertained for a
moment. The convention may go west
for a candidate, but if it come east for one,
it will come for a man better known and
more respected than Hill. In another ed
itorial the Times nays that the Syracuse
convention will send to Chicago delegates
freely and fairly chosen, able to express
the views and wishes of tho Democrats ot
Louisville. Feb. 23.-Henry Watterson
says editorially. In the Courler-Jourua .
that the condition of affairs in New lorlc
would make the nomiuation of either Hill
