-. THE FUSION IN NEBRASKA.
Ticket Put Up by Democrat*, Populists
and Silver Republicans.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. X?As predicted
ut the start by tho party loaders, thu
three parties? Democrats. Populistsand
Silver Republicans?joined bauds in lu
slon nod tho ticket placed in tho Held is:
For supreme tjudge?John I. Sullivan,
For State University Regents?E. Von
For ell, of Kearney, Populist, and George
E. Kouower, of Wisnor, silver Republi?
.Many delegates maintain that tho
fusion was perfectly harmonious, while
there are others who claim there may yet
be dissension on the silver 'Republican
Bide,as about, one-third of their delegates
went home early this morning before tho
fusion was perfected.
For awhile in the three conventions
this morning it looked rather precarious
for harmony, as the silver Republicans
had a very warm time, a '.umber of mid?
dle-in the-road delegates talking In favor
of nominating a straight ticket, in order
to preserve their organization. Finally,
it was announced that the Democrats and
silver Republicans bad agreed on John J.
Sullivan for supreme judge, and signs of
fusion began to appear. Even then it
was not until Judge Neville urged tho
e ndorsement of Mr. Sulllvr.n that the
Populists gave in. At noon the agree?
ment t<> fuse was dually reached aud tho
rest, of the proceedings were of short du?
It became very evident near the close of
the convention that neither Scott,Neville
nor Thompson could be nominated by
any two of the convention.-., am the inn
nocuverof the Democrats in substituting
j SuPlvan was considered a coup tl'ptat
i that cut short what might have resulted
j In a long-drawn, knotty question, full of
light and ultimately separating the three
parties so widely that fusion would have
been an unknown condition for years to
come. This is the opinion freely expressed
ou every hand.
There are fifteen counties unrepre?
sented in the Populist convention and
about the same number absent from the
j other gatherings.
