AN UNSEEMLY AFFAIR.
AMBITIOUS POLITICIANS QUARREL
ING ABOUT THE ALLIANCE'
Democracy vs. Third Party the Htoon of

nation Among Some of the Leaders--A
Full Account of the Matter.
MEwuIs, Nov. 16.-The tituation
among Alliancemen as to who will be
their president is becoming more com
plicated and the 13ght between the two
factions is getting more fierce as the
time for election approaches. The
scoring that President Loucks gave the
Democrata on account of the alleged
robbing of Kolb of the Governorship
of Alabama strengthened the opposi
tion to him on the part of certain South
ern delegates and made him a prime
favorite with those who favor throwing
the Alliance as a body into the third
party. Those opposing these radical
views of Loucks and John H-. MacDow
li of this State held a caucus and deei
ded to support Macune of Washington.
Loucks' election means that the third
party will capture the Alliance. In this
event there will be a combination made
by Texas and Eastern delegates and the
result will probably be the distintegra
tion of the order. On the other hand
rank third party men insist that if Ma
cune is elected they will draw out of
the Alliance and form a new order in
the Northwest. The conservatives of
both factions favor a combination on a
third man, and they imay be able to
prevent the election of L.,oucks or Ma
Mr. Tillman, member of executive
board, who sent out Democratic cani
paign literature from Washington du
ring the recent campa!gn, is roundly
scored by followers of Weaver, who are
demanding his expulsion from the or
der. Tillman says he has nothing to be
ashamed of and courts investigation,
and insists that he his as much right
to send out. Democratic literatue as
other officers had to preach third party
The conmittee on const,itution and
by-laws reported. Several changes
were made. The salaries of all ollicers
are scaled down. The president will
hercetorth receive 82,C00 a year and
expenses instead of $3,000. The secre
tary's salaries was reduced from $2,000
to $1,500. The National Lecturer will
receive 84 a day and expenses instead
of S2,000 a year. Members of the exec
utive comutittee will receive $4 a day
instead of $5.
In the future the executive commit
tee will be composed of live members.
The president js one of the members,
and the other four will be elected an
utially to serve only one year.
The constitution was also amended
so that miiembers of the order can be
taken from cities and towis of 50K)0 in
habitants or le s.
Memorial services were held to-night
in honor of lion. L. L. Polk, formnerly
president. The election of otliuers will
probablv take place to-morrow.
lEMNus, Nov. 17.-Despite the ef
forts made by his friends, the Tillman
Wetters continue to be a source of tur
quoil at the Alliance convention. The
Dody went into secret session at 10
o'clock this morning, and one of
Loucke's cupporters expressed a deter
mination to introduce a resolution
bringing the whole matter before the
Alliance, and then demanding Till
man's expulsion from the order for us
ing his oflicial position to aidl the Dem
ocratic party. Th'le friends of TPillman
dleclare in this event they will intro
duce a counter resolution, demanding
the expulsion of all the of licers of thme

Taubeneck, one of the Third party
leaders, while he doces not appear on the
floor of the convention, is charged by
the McCune faction with trying to
throw the Alliance into his party, anti
also trying to secum e the expulsion of
Tillmnan. Taubener k remains in his
room In the hotel, :mnd refuses admit
lance to all except L.ouckes and a few
of his friende.
All of the Southmerma delegates except
thie members from Georgia are support
ing McCune for presiden '.
John McD)owell, one of the most in
fluential members of Ll.he Alliance, it is
claimed by McCune's friends, has ex
perienced a change of heart, and will
throw his strength to M cCune.
T he Northern and WVestern People's
party enthusiasts claim that if McCune
is elected his association with Tillman
as a member of the executive board
will cause the disintegrat ion of the or

afternoon. IIeretofore the~ chlarrman

had smooth sailing, and for a while it
seemed that the Alliance was going to
elect Louckes and an entire coterie of
oflicers belonging to the most radical
win g of the Third party; but Farmer
Bleck of Alabama, one of the Alliance
delegates who fought Kolb and other
Third party candidates in that State,
came to Mc'Cune's rescue, and took~up
the fight in his behalf and organized
the opposition to Taubeneck. This af
ternoon, when the Alliance adjourned,
McCune's stock was .going up so fast
that Taubeneck abanaoned his room
and sallied Into the hotel rotunda, and
began to buttonhole his wavering fol
Beck was there, too, and he made
capital out of the fact that TIaubeneck,
who is a member of the order, was at
tempting to shape its policy. Taube
neck, however, continued his efforts in
behaif of Louckes.
Gen. Terrell of Texas, who is also
working for Macune, lent a helping
hand. Mr. Beck thus discussed the
fight: "The success of Taubeneck
means the crippling of the Alliance.
We desire to keep it out of politics, but
If Taubeneck succeeds, the order wvill
be the tall of the Third party kite. I
do not intend that a party of place
hunters ,shall use t he order for their
own endi, lf I can help It."
At 8 o'clock ihe members started to
the hail to decide, by ballot, the ques
tion as to who should rule the order.

The Taubeneck crowd having
the conference, many of the

Live session. At 9 o'clock they, got to
7ether and affected a temporary organ
ization, and began to shape matters for
Lhe issuance of a manifesto.
The correspondent of the United I
Press found Mr. Macune in his room,
and that gentleman made the follow
ing statement; "I withdrew from the
convention hAll because the national
comtnittee of the People's party have
come hero and are attempting to secure
control of the Alliance. They have
used foul means, and have gone so far
as to make up a slate of State officers.
Considering that these men were in
control of the convention, and hal de
termined to carry out their measures
contrary to the Alliance traditions arid I
principles, I withdrew from the hall I
and shall remain out as long as such I
methods are being used to divert the
purpose of the Alliance. The delegates
who left the hall felt the same as 1 did
about the matter."

form those thinking as you do into a
separate organization ?"

The closing session of the convention
was held tonight, when the newly elect- V
ed ollicers were installed, in the pres
ence of about one-half of the delegates.
The others, diagusted at the result, re- e
mianed away from the hall. A num
ber of these delegates insist that as
soon as Lhey return home and announce t
the result to their State Alliance, a v
withdrawal from the national body n
will take place and a new order will be d
Loucks' opponents held a meeting c
and issud a manifesto against the
methods of the Third party men, accus
ing them of an attempt to disrupt the
order. Parks, of Texas, took the docu
nent to the conivention hall at 3 o'clock
and read it to the delegates.
Later A nm bn er of friends of Macune's C
gath.red in his room aid discussed fur- t
ther operations. Among then were C
John 11. McI)owell, G'overnor Buchan i
an, Hen Terrell, of Texas, and Stcretary t
Taylor. Terrell and Taylor, though i
elected to ollices, are insympathy with a

fortunes with the new body. Their
