evident that they will not ylfid- If the

they will he forced to accede to the de
mands m ide oe them.
A ctrange feature of the pwsent situa
tion is that the Populists are so unalter
ably oppoaed to Lewis F>>ur years ago,
when many of them were yet in the Demo
cratic ranks, be was their political idol,
and anything he wanted cv>ald have been
had for the asking. Now they say he la
objectionable because of being a lawyer,
and that he car not be their n<*min*e.
The governor must be a Populist. In ex
planation of this cond'.iion of affairs, it is
asserted that some mysterious sgency has
be»n at work aptoncthe farmera. and the
growth of toe anti-Lewis s-ntiment has
been ascribod to the adherents of Young,
who was the Populist nominee for govern
or four years ago. and to the friends of
Be-t. of Spokane. Thev have seen that
Lewi* was a formidable opponent, and
they evidently have brought their follow
ers to mark htm down as aot available.
But It Is not impossible that the Demo
crat* will s'ay by Lew!*. He ha* any
number of friend* among the delegate*,
and some of tb*m sav he can keep them in
line a* long a* he likes. The free coinage
Rr publicsns want to see Lewis out of the
way.
Not the least of the day#' development
1* the announcement of strained relations
between Warhors# Hill White and James
Hamilton I>ewla. and tonight wor J goes
forth «hat Whit* would sacrifice the aspir
an; for governor. Whit* was Among the
spectators at the Populist convention in
the evening during the protracted and n
citing debate. and was Asked for his vkw
of the situation. "You may aay that the
convention* will get together on a Just,
equitable an<l honorable bast#, and *UI
nominate a fusion ticket. The only diffi
culty now tn the war is the personal as
pirations of numbers of the three parties,
bat without question these n;«-n will come
to view the matter In a broader light, and
a union of the free silver men will be the
Inevitable result." The fact that White
la ready to abandon Lewis is said to be due
to a desire to gat credit as national com
mitteeman for forcing adoption of ars
electoral ticket entirely r»f Democrats. A
member of the King county delegation said
tonight: "W« no longer rely on White's
support of Lewie. aotwithstanding pre
y out pruf'-- one of gratt: «de and loy
alty."
it is late tonig it that a motion
will be nu'« by Lewis" friends in the
F>emocratlc convention tomorrow for a
reconsideration of the Indorsement of
White fo- national committeeman.
I.e* - i* hop**s fusion w;il yet b* accom
plished on an equitable b,i*ls. but he says
a maforlty of the conference committee
will vote in favor of giving the governor
ship to the I\>pull3ts This is to be brought
about hy the aid of the Siiverltee, who
with their nineteen votes are able to de
termine the Question so far as conference
I* concerned. The Democratic convention.
Lewis says, will never consent to a settle
ment »o manifestly unfair. The free coin
age Republicans, with a representation
from only about h.ilf the counties in the
state. are permitted to ride over the I>m
ocrats srd curry favor the I'opu-
I;jits, the object being to advance the in
terests of Senator by burying the
other prominent free allver men from King
county.

Isaac Moore, the Grand Army man who
has been on the lookout for Senator
S-julre, mls.«ed his opportunity this after
noon Moore has a McKiniey button dis
played on his Grand Army badge, and as
hr walk d down I'eari street he was greet

Army button. The stranger noticed Mr.
Moore's McKiniey buttryi and said:
"Vou still cling to the old party, I see."
"Ye*, sir," answered Mr. Moors; "that's
the only course open 10 me."
"Well I must say I cannot any longer
follow the Republicans."
"Then I am sorry," said Mr. Moore,
"that an old soldier should have reached
that determination."
From this the discussion turned to pol
itics and the two men went at each other,
figuratively speaking, hot and heavy. The
Mc Kin ley man is well posted, and he
se»med to have the better of the argu

then one of Mr. Moore's friends stepped
up to him.
"You (t.jve It to Squire pretty heavy,

"Was lhat Squire?*' exclaimed
Mr Moore. "J wish I had known It at the

riatform Adopted, and the Confrtvnce
< ommlttre Sent Back.
Tlllonsburtr. Aug. U—Special.—The Pop
tilist state convention spent the entire
KOrr.ing and afternoon sessions dlacusstng
thep;atform. whichwas read to the conven
tion last night. The planks which cauaeii
the moat animated discussion were thoae
relating to the reduction of salaries of
, officials and condemning the oSdals for
v *ing railroad passes. Guvnor Teats, of
was the. only delegate who was
ir. favor of keeping salaries at the pre«-
e it ataadard. Ha said that after elec
tion wheat would be worth a dollar a
bjshri. and that the present salaries
would be none too high then. Several del
egates commended Mayor Pennoyer. of
' Portland, for what they termed bis sacri-
Oca in cuuing bis own salary in half.
Whilo the delegates appeare«l to be al
ri:oat unanimously in favor of the plank,
it took a two hours' discussion to settle
the matter.
There a Sons discussion over the
plank condemning the use of railroad
passes by officials. and some bitter feel
:r.g was engendered. It appeared that sev
eral of the delegate* had been accused of
riding on railroad passes. These delegates
that pa«w*» had been presented
to them. but that they had not used them.
Th* question of condemning the admin
istration of GOT. McGraw as a whole wai
brought Up, but Chairman CUne suggested
that It would be the wisest policy to con
demn specific acts of the governor, in or
cbr that the party might have material
to use In the campaign. The suggestion
of the chairman was finally adopted, and
a condemnatory resolution was incorpo
rated in the platform.
A resolution was offered favoring the
opening of tie Columbia river, but It was
withdrawn, at the suggestion of a King
county delegate. The platform was then
adopted, as follows:
lh» Populist Platform.
••We. th« representatives of the People's
k party of the state of Washington, in con
vention assembled, leafll rm our devotion
to the principled snundated at Omaha and
St. Louis, and most heartily commend
them to the favorable consideration o»
all lovers of freedom.
"Firwiy believing that the present sys
tem of representative government is in

control the policy of the government to
The detriment of the interests of the peo
ple at large, and further believing that
no permanent relief will l>e possible until
the people can apeak more directly on laws
which they are required to obey, we de
mand that the people shall be given a
direct vote on all important legislation,
and that all officers shall be made the
servant* of the people, subject at any tlmo
to recall or dismissal, and not, as at pres
ent, the masters of those who crtaie
them. ,
• We demand the enactment into law of
the following propositions: The material
reduction of excosalve salaries of all ex
ecutive, legislative and Judicial officers,
lessened freight, passenger, telephone and
telegraphic rates within the state, the
adoption of the Torrens system of regis
tering land title*; a general system of non

Guvnor Teats said he had always been
In the middle of the road, but now he saw
two children by his Side, and he felt like

of what the Populists demanded, but
what they could give. He believed In

upon the unccmpromising members of the
convention.
The overflow of oratory had by this time
bee >me a deluge, and the convention was
be?>miug tired. Other speakers followed,
despite tho fact* that the members of the
csnferenco committee reminded the
delegates that 9 o'clock. which
was fast approaching, was the
hour to which the conferees had ad
journed. But 9 o'clock slipped by, and
Nor dyke, secretary of the committee, took
the floor to say that of all animals man
was the most peculiar, and that there had
been a most painful exhibition of that fact
tonight. "We tnust have another confer

voice In favor of ttnlon. "Let us go home
to meet a common foe," he said in clos

one of the most effective of the ev«*n!ng,

tinuous yeil as he returned to his seat.

and being forced to withdraw amid vocif

The vote was 'aken at 9:25, and resulted
in the committee being sent hack with
out Instructions. A tremendous shout
accompanied the announcement, and half
the convention was on Its feet Instantly,
feeling that the work of the day wa»
done. The convention adjourned till 9
o'clock tomorrow, with fusion apparently
further away than at any tim* during the
