corded Movement Marled for Another
Mkmi-hm, Nov. 19. The knot in the
Farmer's Alliance convention culminated
in a Ixilt Hnil yesterday morning those op
posed to the People's party capturing the
body held a caucus and concluded to form
a new association embodying the doctrines
of the Alliance but holding aloof from pol
itics. The Populist crowd having cap
tured the convention many of the delegates
refuse! to attend the executive session.
At 9 o'clock they got .together and effected
a temporary organization ana began to
shaie matters for the issuance of a mani-
In the Loucks Convention.
The Loucks convention went right along
as if it was all right and adopted a set of
resolutions or rather "demands" elected
officers and attended to the business of the
session. The officers elected are: II. I.
l.oucks, of South Dakota, president; Mar
ion Butler, of North Carolina, vice presi
dent; U H. Taylor, of Nashville, sixretary;
Hen' Ierrell. of Texas, national lecturer;
members of the executive board Ij. ljeon-
ard. of Missouri; Mann Page, of Virginia;
I. E. Dean, of New York, and II. C. Dent
ing, of Pennsylvania, llie third party
slate w as not broken.
Anti-Loiicks Men Men IMsgusted.
The closing session of the convention was
held at 9 o'clock last night, w hen the newly
elected officers were installed in the pres
ence of alwiut one-half of the delegates. The
others were so much disgusted at the re
sult of the contest over the oflieers that
they remained away from the hall.
The States Will Withdraw.
A number of the delegates insist that as
soon as they return to their homes and an-
nource the result of the action of the con
vention to their state Alliances, a
withdrawal from the national body will at
once take place and a new order will be
formed. The announcement of the election
of Loucks was the last straw with his op
ponents and they at once began action.
Points from the Platform.
The platform adopted by the convention
is a combination of the old Greenback plat
form and the later demands of the Alliance
and People's pary. Kvery plank begins
"we demand" and some of the demands am
150 per capita of mouey "issued directly by
the government to the people;" no national
banks; the sub-treasury scheme; free coin
ago of silver; graduated income tax, no
building up one industry at the expense ot
another; postal savingf banks; no monopoly
of land, nor alien ownership thereof; gov
ernment ownership of railways, telegraphs
A Government Railway Proposed.
A separate resolution adopted provides
for a committee to call on congress and the
state through which it will pass to build a
railroad from the Uritish possessions to the
Gulf of Mexico. The resolution provides
that the road shall be built and equipped
without the issuance of bonds, and that it
be operated by the general government aud
the states through which it may pass.
LOOKS LIKE A HOPELESS SPLIT.
Loud: Men San;
While the convention was r.t work clos
ing up the business the mclcontents were
holding a meeting at the Gavoso hotel
where they adopted a protest against the
whole business, declaring the acts of the
l.oucks men an rffort to "partisanize"
the order engineered by Populist leaders
of whom Tau'vmvk had In : n chief, as
he has had rooms here and bee n all the time
in communication with the Loucks men in
Hail Their Protest Recorded.
Not only this, but the amis had their
protest recorded in the Ikioks of the regu
lar convention. The document w as taken
into the convention by Parks of Texas,
who had a sharp tight for what he consid
ered his rights, and won and then returned
to the Gayoso hotel meeting and reported
his success. Among the signers to the pro
test are Hen Farrell and Secretary Taylor,
both of whom were elected !- office by the
Loucks convention, but say that they will
join their fortunes with .he new body as
on as the signal is given.
Talk ut an Open Meeting.
With the installation of of!i ers the con
vention was practically ended, and ihi3
was done last night. While this was goinsj
on in one room an open meeting was held in
another where numerous specclus were
made. The friends of the Populists said
the convention was a third party meeting
and preached third party principles to the
exclusion of the Alliancedoctrines. Macune
finally came into the hall and loud calls
were made for him. He made a speech and
scored the members of the third party
executive committee, several of whom were
in the auaience.
The Discouraged and Sangnlne.
Conservative members of the order free
ly talk of the quarrels that have gotten into
it, ana express no nope of being able to
keep the order from going to pieces. The
friends of Loucks, however, insist that the
order under hi control will continue to
grow and in 1896 it will overcome both
parties and plant its leader's banner over
the entrance to the White House.
MRS. LEASE AS A SENATOR.
i 6he Is Not Booming, bat Baa Hopes Ber
Wichita, Kan., Nov. 19. Mrs. Marv E.
Lease returned home yesterday. "I have
never told any one I would be a candidate
for the United States senate," said Mrs.
Lease. "The place at which I was alleged
to have made the announcement was a
meeting of the Alliance at Emporia and no
word of politics was spoken during the ses
sion. There has been a ouiet undercurrent
flowing in my direction and many promi
nent men oi an political beliefs and from
different parts of the union have urged me
to be a candidate.
Will Come Out in Dae Time.
"I shall remain ftuietly, bid ray tune
and wTien some of these people who are
raising objections to my candidacy on the
score of sex and alleged constitutional in
eligibility have made what they consider a
knockdown argument, I shall announce
myself as having entered the contest. Here
is a letter I received from General Weaver
on the subject: 'After careful examina
tion of the constitution of the United States
1 lind that no legal objections exist which
Would prevent the election of a woman to
the United States senate.'
May Not Be a Candidate.
"I may not be a candidate," continued
Mrs. lwe, unless a fight should be made
upon me on account r.f .ex. but it there is
I wiil be in the contest, and 1 never
failed in any fiht 1 have entered. No one
can come l:tiv.ven me and the people of
Kansas, and if I want to be United states
senator ti.ey will trive me the oliic..'."
Preparing for Slate Hank.
Atlanta, Gil, Nov. 19. An important
bill has been introduced in the legislature
to allow state banks to issue bills. The
bill provides that the governor, the state
treasurer and compt roller shall be a com
mission to h.ive engraved anil printed at
the expense of the bank issuing them such
notes as said bank desires after said bank
deposits as collateral state or municipal
bonds to an amount equal to the notes.
The law is to take effect as soon as the
governor is notified that congress has re
pealed the act levying a tax of 10 per cent,
on circulation notes of state banks.
Ohio Republican Keynote.
Colt-mutts. Nov. 19 At a largely at
tended meeting of the Ohio State Republi
can Club league Thursday resolutions were
apopted declaring renewed allegiance to
the principles of protection, indorsing the
McKinley Dill and its author and urging
that the is'ue in 1M5 may be as in lSiri
McKinley was present and made a brief
speech, saying that having lost the recent
light the duty of Kcpublicans was to get
ready for the next.
The Rrsult in STlisns.
Torr.SA, Kan., Nov. 1!). Who ever may
control the next legislature and elect a
United States senator from this state, one
thing is considered certain as a result of
the election in Kansas, and that is that
prohibition hus gotten a black eye a very
black eye. Governor Iewelling says he will
not shut up saloons in other towns where
they are wide open in the large cities.
The saloonists have taken courage and are
opening up everywhere.
Close Fight in Michigan.
IOKIA, Mich., Nov. 19. The recount of
the ballots yesterday was slow. The count
so far has resulted in a gain for Kichardson
of thirteen votes. ' In Odessa two ballots
were found one Republican and one Dem
ocratic with signatures and marks on the
back, which were rejected as illegal. In
Boston township a mistake of ten votes.
Richardson's favor, it is claimed, will be
found. The fifth Michigan is yet in doubt.
A Republican Free Trader.
St. Lotjis, Nov. 19. Charles F. Joy de
feated Congressman O'Neill in the Elev
enth district at the recent election. Joy is
a Republican, but it now transpires that
he is a free trader, having lieen w hile a stu
dent at Yale a member of a free trade cluH.
lie refuses to be interviewed, but Lawyer
Charles ?!:r.ton. who has been his chum
for years, has told this story on him. It is

BrFFALo. Nov. 19. One of East Buf

THE CYCLONE AT
Bed Bud. Ills., Nov. 19. William Kopp,
who was killed in Thursday's hurricane,
was buried yesterday afternoon. His
mother, who was reported to have died
, Thursday, will probably recover. Mrs.
Peter Kardell is in a critical condition; she
was badly crushed, her side hurt and as she
was being dragged from the ruins a large
stone struck her head. All the others who
were injured will recover. Alderman
Miller, with a posse, patrolled the city
Thursday night to prevent pillage and fire.
Help Itiidly Wanted Total Lou.
The mayor presided at a meeting of citi-
J zeus yesterday and it was deemed neces
sary to call for help from the public. Nel
son Scibold was elected treasurer to re
ceive such funds. A committee of insur
ance agents estimated the damage to
buildings at $87,000, but this means the
insured buildings only and does no touch
the loss of household goods, fences and oth
er property. Two hundred thousand dol
lars would not put everything back as it
was. l he loss was among the poor and
eighty-five familes are living with poor
Storming All Over the Country.
Chicago, Nov. 19. Telegraph wires are
down all-over the country and communi
cation with many points is entirely cut
oft High winds and sleet are responsible
for the prostration of the wires, and the
storm covers a large area. From what
reports have been obtained at the signal
office the trouble seems to have originated
In Kansas, and to have extended nearly
the entire length of the Mississippi river.
The eastern states have also suffered and
the telegraph service to points east of Pitts
burg and Buffalo is badly demoralized.
Wrecked Nearly Every Building.
Clarkgville, Tenn., Nov 19. Fredonia,
a small town in this county, was almost
totally destroyed by a tornado early yester
day morning. No lives were lost, but
every building in the town, with the ex
ception of two or three, was wrecked.
