M.'Hms, November 15.-The Na

this city this morui, g, and about 300
delegates were present. Among the
notable ones were President Loucks
of South Dakota, Dr. McCune, of Wash

sas, Congressman Ben Terrel, of Texas,
National Lecturer Willis, of Kansas,
Miss Dwyer, of the editorial staff of the
Economist, and Miss M:rion Todd, the
Ignatius Donnelly and T. V. Pow
derly were expected, but 'id not ar
rive, the latter being detained in Cin
cinnati. John H. McDowell, Gov.
Buchanan's representative, was a cou
spicuous figure. President Loucks was
in the chair, and at the morning ses
sion nothing but the usual addresses of
welcome and responses were delivered.
In the afternoon and to-night execu
tive sessions wei e held, from which
reporters were excluded. There is a
bitter feeling over the election of offi
cers, which will take place Friday.
Mr. Loucks and Dr. McCune are can
didates for the Presidency, and there is
a very warm factional light on.
TWO FACTIONS AT WORK.
MEMPHIS, Nov. 1G.-The situation
among the Alliancemen as to who will
be their president is becoming more
complicated and the fight between the
two. faction6 is getting more fierce as
the time for election approaches. The
scoring that President Loucks gave
the Democrats on account of the
alleged robbing of Kolb of the Gover
norship of Alabama strengthened the
opposition to him on the part of cer
tain Southern 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.
McDowell of this State held a caucus
and decided to support Macune of
Loucks election means that the
Third party will capture the Alliance.
In this event there will be a combina
tion made by Texas and the Eastern
delegates, and the result will probably
be the disintegration of the order. On
the other hand rank Third party men
insist that if Macune is eleeted they

The story loses its charm in the repe
tition. It takes Mr. Ham of Georgia
-to tell it, and when you hear him the,
droll accent of the South, the magnetic
smile that shines all over his face, and
the twinkle in his eyes will make you
laugh heartily. Picture a smooth
shaven face, blue eyes, a full chin, andI
wide mobile lips, that twitch in a hu-I
morous fashion, and you have a fair
idea how Mr. 1Ham looks. He is a
young man, not yet 40, and although
rhe has never before this campaign fig

comed everywhere as a speaker, for the
reason that everything he hears re
minds him of a story.
-He was at the Continental Hotel yes
terday, registered as "H. W. J. Ham,I
)of Georgia." Not from any paltry
town or city did he come, but from the
whole State. A reporter called to have
a chat with him.
-"My dear friend," Mr. 1Ham of
Georgia said, "I've been a newspaper

conservatives of both factions favor a
comxbination on a third man, and they
may be able to prevent the election of
Loucks or Macune.
Mr. Tillman, member of executive
board,- wio sent out Democratic cam
paig literature from Washington dur
ing the recent campaign, is roundly
scored by the followers of Weaver, who
are demanding his expulsion from the
order. Tillman says he has nothing to
be ashamed of and courts investiga

right to send out Democratic literature
as other efficers had to preach Third
The committee on constitution and
by-laws reported. Several changes
were made. The salaries of all officers
are scaled down. The president will
henceforth receive $2,000 a year and
expenses instead of $3,000. The secre
tary's salaries was reduced from $2,000
to $1,50t. The National Lecturer will
receive $4 a day and expenses instead
of $2,000 a year. Members of the ex
ecutive committee will receive $4 a day
instead of $5.
In the future the executive commit
tee will be composed of five members.
The president is one of the members,
and the other four will be elected annu
ally to serve only one year.
The constitution was also amended
so that members of the order can be
taken from cities and towns of 5.000
inhabitants or less.
Memorial services were held to-night
in honor of Hon. L. L. Polk, formerly
president. The election of officers will
probably take place to-morrow.
THE TILLMAN LETTERS HAVE CREATED
QUITE A SENSATION.
MEMPHIS, TENN., November 17.
Despite the efforts made by his friends
the Tillman letters continue to be a
source of turtroil at the Alliance con
vention. The body went into secret
session this morning, and one of
Loucks' supporters expressed a determ
ination to introduce a resolution bring
ing the whole matter before the Alli
ance and then demanding Tillman's
expulsion from the order for using his
official position to aid the Democratic
party. Friends of Tillman declare, in
this event, they will introduce counter
resolutions demanding the expulsion
of all officers of the Alliance wbo made
campaign speeches for the Third party
and the Republican party. Taubeneck,
one of the Third party leaders, is
charged by the Macune faction with
lanta from northern Georgia who'd
been caught revenueing. That's what
they call it down where I live. The
fellow had never been in a city before,
and he looked at the stone paving of
the streets wvith great interest. At last
he said : 'It's a good thing they built
a city in this place. It isn't worth a
dar n for farining land. Look at the
"Well, it's just by accident that I
rot into national politics. I've always
been~ mora or less in politics down in
Georia, but I never looked outside
much. They elected me to the legis
lature and there I got to be a Colonel.
When the third party peoplegot to howl
i'g I made up my mind that the way
to get at them was not by argument, but
by just ridiculing the life out of them
Well, that worked first rate, and when
Old Whereabouts Watson began to
howl they asked me to come down from
the North and laugh at him. I went
down and I just told them all the
stories I knew and we had a great time
"Well, that Watson campaign was a
lively one. I addressed an audience in
A tlanta one night, and most of them
were third party people. Their pockets
bulged with eggs. 'Gentlemen,' I
said, 'there is a strong smell of eggs in
this hall. Ham and eggs make a good
dish, but, gentlemen, it doesn't go
well after tea, and -I've just had tea.'
That put them in good humor, and
they didn't throw any eggs. The third
party, I told them, in its complaints
against the other parties was like an
ol woman who lived in Sonth Caro
trying to throw the Alliance into his
party, and also trying to secure the ex
pulsion of Tillman.
All of the Southern delegates, except
the members from Georgia, are sup
porting Macune for president. The
Northern and Western People's party
enthusiasts claim that if Macune is
elected president of the association,
with Tillman as a member of the ex
ecutive board, it will cause disintegra
tion of the order. Fraternal delegates
from the Grange were admitted to the
convention this morning.
THE ALLIANCE'S WISHES.
MEMPHIS, TENN., November 17.
The National Farmers' Alliance and
industrial Union has been in executive
session all day. No material changes
were made in the constitution and by
laws. The time of the annual meeting
has been changed from November to
February. This, together with the
abolition of the lecture and the literary
bureau, which was presided over by
John F. Tillman, and the reduction of
salaries of all officers, were the princi
The subject of dealing in futures is
treated by the committee on good of
the order as follows:
"We think the body should by reso
lution condemn the gambling in fu
tures upon products of labor and also
all species of bribery and corruption at
the ballot box and elsewhere."
All during to-day efforts have been
made by the more conservative mem
bers of the organization to concentrate
their vote for the president on some
compromise candidate. The feeling
that has been aroused between the
friends of Loucks and Macune is not
regarded by any true Allianceman as
beneficial to the order.
President Loucks in his annual ad
dress, in the opinion of many delegates,
was too pronounced in his eulogy of
the third party and his condemnation
of the action -of members of the Al
ance in the South regarding their votes
in the recent election. On the other
hand, Dr. Macune alleged the Demo
cratic tendencies were not viewed with
favor by the other members who have
been partisans and in several instances
candidates for political office as Third
At 8.30 o'clock President Loucks
called the Farmers Alliance convention

The ruling was appealed from but two

hour there was no prospeet of a solu

fight will be.
Just previous to the belloting for

this morning, and those opposed to the
People's party captured the body, held
a caucus, and concluded to form a new
association embodying the:doctrines of
the Alliance, but holding- aloof from
politics. The Taubeneck crowd having
captured the conference, many of the
delegates refused to attend,, the execu

the issuance of a manifesto.
The correspondent of the United
Press found Mr. Macune in his room,
and that gentleman made the follow

convention hall because the national
committee of People's party have come
here and are attempting to secure con

foul means, and have gone.so far as to

of the convention, and had determined .
to carry out their measures, contrary to

H,wan Why samu.l Switzer BEItCherea
His Brother-In-law, John 'D. Cheek.I
[Special to News and Courier.]
LAUBENs, Nov. 15.-Samuel Switz
er killed his brother-In-law, John D.
Cheek, near Young's store, in Young's
Township, yesterday evening. Both
parties are respectable white men of
good connections. The fight occurred
at Swizer's house in the lot. - The par
ticulars I get are about as follows:
A dispute arose between the men
about a mule. Cheek drew -his knife
and made at Switzer, who caught him,
threw him down and hit him several
times with his fist. Cheek said that he
would be quiet if Switzer. would let
hm get up. Switzer did so. Cheek
walked oft toward the house,- saying
that he would ~shoot Switzer. Then
the latter knocked him down with a
brick as he was going off', and then
struck him several times in the head
with a hatchet.
Cheek died early this morning. Five
wounds, three of them are mortal, were
found on his head. It is said that the
men had quarrelledaeversi times before
and that Cheek had on one ocso
drawn his pistol on Bwitzer. This,
however, is given only as a rumor.
Both met were about A5 or 4(0years old.
