woman suffragists and Mrs. T. V. Cator, a
woman delegate from San Francisco, ar
rived to-day. Among the delegation were
Miss Susan B. Anthony, Mrs. A. A. Sar
gent and Mrs. Ida JL. Harper.
They came not because they had any
doubt that a worhan -suffrage plank would
be inserted" in the State platform, but be
cause it was required of them as a matter
ot courtesy that they should attend the
convention. F^r a like reason they will
appear before the Prohibition Convention,
which will meet in Stockton at the latter
end of this week.
Mr. Rodgers is a delegate and will in
cidentally look after Mayor Sutro's fight
for Congress. Several of the delegates
said to-night that they did not think that
Sutro would get anything at the hands of
the convention because he was a railroad
man himself and a money-maker in capi
talistic enterprises and that therefore he
would not be at home in a Populistic
The convention will be called to order at
10 o'clock to-morrow in the Assembly
Chamber, and it is now expected there
will be a two days' session. Words of
etrong commendation are heard on every
fide for the local committee of arrange
ments for its preparations for the conven
tion. The composition of the committee
is as follows: L. M. Landsborough, W. T.
Hamilton, W. J. Elder, J. Camp and T.
FUSION NOT LIKELY.
California Populists More Willing to Go
Down Among the Breakers Than
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 11.— Among
the best known leaders of the party here
is M. W. Wiikzns of San Jose. Mr. Wil
kins is editor of the Populist organ, New
Charter, and is the head of the anti-fusion
"There will be no fusion," he said to a
Call reporter this afternoon. "Nationally
1 don't believe that there will be a silver
convention to fuse with, and the indica
tions are that there will be a siiver ticket
in the field put in by bolting Democrats,
to which the fusion members will flock.
Leading silver men, such as Bartine and
Warner, say that the permanency of the
silver party will depend upon what the
old parties do. The California Populists
will be in the middle of the mad with a
platform as radical as the Omaha plat
forn. and perhaps more so."
Mr. Wilkins reiterated that the Popu
lists wanted no fusion. They will depend
upon their own resources. He found that
the feeling in the party against fusion
was growing stronger and stronger every
day. But while there is a deep-seated
prejudice against fusion the party would
not object to a union of forces at St. .Louis
if there is anything to unite. The dis
tinction between fusion and union as made
by Mr. Wilkins is that fusion is an ar
rangement between two parties standing
upon separate platforms and dividing the
offices on the ticket, half to one party and
half to the other. Union means a joining
together of men or parties and under a
common platform and with only one set
of candidates forming one party. If there
should be a «ilver convention in St. Louis
and the silverites and Populists should
uuite upon the same platform and on the
same candidates tnere would oe no objec
tion and there would not be any inconsis-
tency in that proceeding, provided that
the Populists would not be required to
compromise any of the fundamental prin
ciples of their platform. California Popu
lists are essentially and emphatically op
posed to any sacrifice of principle, and
rather than do so they would be willing to
go down among the breakers.
Speaking of the advance of the party
and the growing popularity of radicalism
Mr. Wilkins said that under the radical
platform of 1894 the Populist gained an
average of 116 per cent of votes in this
State. He quoted the New York World's
article of two or three weeks ago giving
the fact* relating to the increase in the
Populist vote and stating that if populism
had shown no increase from 1892 to 1894
there might be reason to believe that the
party had died, but the New York World's
figures show an increase of 600,000. The
increase in California was 29,000 on an
average from 1892 to 1894. There have
polled as high as 68,000 votes in this State.
The average in this State for 1892 was
25,502 votes for Weaver and in 1894 the
number had increased to 54,000.
AFTER THE SENATORSHIP.
Thomas V. Cator Talks About the
Strides Made by Populists In
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 11.— As
usual the big gun of the convention is
Thomas V. Cator of San Francisco, the
candidate for the nomination for the
United States senatorship of California.
He is confident that he will receive the
nomination at the hands of hi 3 party.
The nomination will mean that he
is the choice of the party, and
it will pledge the Populist Btate Sen
ators and Assemblymen to vote for him.
Contrary to the general understanding of
the matter, the nomination of a United
States Senator directly by a political party
is not an innovation. In the great contest
in Illinois between Lincoln and Douglas
in 1858 for the United States Senate they
were nominated by the State conventions.
A more recent instance is the nomination
of Foraker of Ohio by the Republican
State Convention of Ohio.
Mr. Cator is a strong anti-fasionist, and
he says that this feeling against going in
partnership with any other party has been
produced by the bitter experience of the
past, when Marion Cannon (Populist) was
elected to Congress on a fusion ticket, and
when he pulled down an Assemblyman
from bis allegiance to the party and threw
the principles of Populism to the winds.
Cannon went to Congress and caused a
whirlwind of protest and condemnation
by voting for the repeal of the Sherman
This feeling does not extend to a union,
provided that it can be effected without
making any sacrifice of principle. The
California delegation to the National Con
vention will demand the principles of the
Omaha platform without any qualifica
tion, and they will not waver from their
principles. They need not do so, and they
are in a position to be independent, be
cause the party has been gaining steadily.
It has elected the Governors of five States,
eixteen Congressmen and seven United
States Senators. It has become a National
party, fully and completely organized by
counties and county committees in every
fctate west of the Mississippi and south of
There has been no reasonable objection
made to the Omaha platform. It has
proved to be one of tne strongest plat
forms ever written, with the quality of at
tracting to the People's party whenever
there is a disintegration of old parties. In
Texas, a stronghold of ihe Democracy, the
ToDulists cast 99,000 votes for the candi
aate for the Presidency and 116,000 for Gov
ernor. Two y ears later 166,000 votes were
last for Governor, and Populism came
within 40,000 votes of carrying Texas. It
Is now conceded. Mr. Cator says, by two
thirds of the Democratic papers of that
State that Texas will be carried by the
How Some of the Populist Delegates Arrived in Sacramento.
People's party on the Omaha platform at
the next election.
In Georgia the party has a record of
97,000 votes, in Virginia of 90,030, and it
carried Alabama twice, if the votes were
allowed of be counted, ihe majority of the
county offices in Kansas last fall were won
by Populists, and they carried Colorado
by a majority of 7000. In Nebraska in 1894
they cast 97,000 votes for Governor, with
the indorsement of the silver party, and in
1895, when the silver Democrats ran inde
pendent and the Populists put a straight
ticket in the field on the Omaha platform,
they polled 107,000 votes.
When asked whether an opposition can
didate would be put against him in the
convention, Mr. Cator said that he had
heard of no opposition and knew of none,
except what he had seen in The Call this
morning, that A. H. Rose waß to contest
with him for the honor, but of this he
knew nothing personally.
At a late hour to-night a canvass among
the delegates, most of whom have arrived,
indicates that Cator will receive the nom
ination, in all probability by acclama
tion, and that the reported opposition to
him will be smothered the moment it
makes itself manifest.
DEBS AND HUNTINGTON.
Parallel Cases of Injustice That Will
Came a Cry Against the Rule
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 11.— Among
the resolutions that will be introduced
during the session is the following:
Whereas, The events of the last two years
point unmistakably to an attempt on the part
of the dominant monopolists of the country to
destroy the liberties of the people through the
iniquitous method of Federal court injunction
and ita consequent contempt proceedings; and
whereas, in the imprisonment of Eugene
V. Debs without a jury trial for a crime of
which he was not guilty, on the one hand,
and absolute failure of the Federal authorities
to honestly prosecute the rich monopolist,
Collis P. Huntington, in a plain case for the
least of his crimes, on the other, the people of
this country have been given a fearful example
of the terrible power wielded by the great
monopoly; therefore, be it
Eesolved, That we unqualifiedly denounce
every species of legal proceeding having for its
object the imprisonment of a human being or
any restraint of his liberty that denies to him
his constitutional right to trial by jury, and
that we demand that this constitutional right
be enforced in all such cases; and, be it fur
Resolved. That we denounce the imprison
ment of Eugene V. Debs as a crime against the
liberties of the people; and, be it further

delegates to the National Convention of the
People's party be instructed to favor adhe

BEAT THE RAILROAD.
The Man Who Walked and the Man
Who Came in a Cart the
Heroes of the Hour.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 11.— W. O.
Gnggs of Alexander Valley, Sonoma
County, and T. F. Lee of Lakeport, Lake
County, were the heroes of fhe hour to
day. Both are delegates to the convention
and are pronounced antUfusionists.
Griggs is a tall man, rather long in the
legs, and with good, substantial feet for
walking. He wears a sandy beard, with
full whiskers, but his upper lip is shaved,
giving him the appearance of a pious dea
con. A low-crowned straw hat imparts a
rakish air and detracts from the deacon
ship, while a pair of pantaloons much too
long for his lengthy lees shriek loudly for
some one to turn them up at the bottom
E. W. Wardall of Monrovia. Chairman state Populist Central Commitu..
[Sketched at Sacramento by a ''Call " artitt.]
and that it's rainin' in Lunnun.
There is nothing cranky about Mr.
Griggs' appearance, his walk of 135 miles
from Healdsburg to Sacramento being the
only thing eccentric. He is jnst a plain
rancher, with but very few words to say.
A week ago last Wednesday he started
on his jaunt from Healdsburg and made
his first stop at Santa Rosa. He arrived
at Petaluma on Tuesday night and got
lure on Wednesday morning. Then he
came up the valley on the west side of the
Sacramento River and when he reached
Davisville be was told that it would be
dangerous to attempt to cross the railroad
trestle work, which extends for several
miles over the flooded district between
Sacramento and Davisville. But he came,
nevertheless, and took good care that the
Octopus did not get a chance to run over
him with a hog train.
"On the way I met lots of Populists," he
said, "and they wished the cause god
Delegate Griggs added that the pros
pects for Populism were good in his dis
trict During the last campaign some of
the precincts cast more votes for the Pop
ulists than the Democrats received. His
people had pledged him against fusion, he
"The people who talk fusion are not
Populists; they claim to be. All that
fusion would accomplish wov\d be to give
the office-seekers a chance."
Delegate Lee came down from Lake
County determined to travel like a lord
and not pay a cent of railroad fare. He
hitched his favorite plow horse to a road
cart and started on his way along the rug
ged roads among ihe mountains of the
Switzerland of America. By dint of bard
driving he made Lower Lake, a distance
of twenty-four miles, Che first day. From
here to the Capay Valley the road was
rough and mountainous, and on the sec
ond day, while making for Farriar ranch,
he broke a wheel tire and for a while it
looked as though he would have to con
tinue the remainder of the journey in the
saddle, but he found a blacksmith who re
paired the damage, and he reached Wood
land on the third day.
The trip was not marked by any inci
dent, eventful or otherwise, except that he
was stood up on a road near Capay and
forced to pay 2r> cents toll, winch he con
sidered an outrage of the same grade as
the poll tax. It was not populiatic.
Mr. Lee remained at Woodland all
night, but was obliged to leave his horse
and cart at that place, b-cause of the flood
between Woodland and Sacramento. So,
after all, he was obliged to patronize the
Octopus and ride in the cars just the same
as if he were a plain Democrat, Republi
can or Prohibitionist.
On reaching Sacramento he walked five
miles out of town to see the brother of one
of his neighbors, and walked back again to
the State House as lively as a cricket.

No returns have yet been received from

San Mateo, Sierra, Sutter, Trinity and
Tuolumne. Including the committeemen
these counties are entitled to an aggregate
of 44 delegates.
Santa Barbara has a contestinc, delega
tion and the expectation is that both dele
gations will be seated and each member
given half a vote. The contestants are J.
A. Wilcox, R. H. Fulweileiv J. W. Stark
weather and J. Bradley.
Santa Barbara's contesting delegations
will probably settle their trouble by seat
ing all the members present of both dele

up the quota to which that county is en
titled. Late to-nigrht Dr. Castle of Merced
was talsed of as a candidate for the chair
