pudiated today »y the Populists of Ohio in
a manner .«» emphatic h* to leave no
chance for controversy regarding the fu
ture policy of the party The Populist
state convention, bv an overwhelming
majority, severed the alliance made a year
ago with the Democracy on the tree silver
issue, and nominated a full stat>* ticket,
headed by Jacob S. Coxey, of common* ;il
fame, the nominee for governor. Tur
bulent scene* marked the opening of the
convention this morning. The antl fusion
lsts had swept everything before them,
capturing the temporary and permanent
organization* and all the committees, and
they were on th-.ir mettle.
The threat of the fusion is ts to explode
a bomb in the convention KM like ftaut-.t.
ing a r'-vi rag, and *hni the convention
a?*embitvi, th»> delegates were re ady for
any surprise that mt«ht be sprung. The
report of the committee on ru!< > and or
der of business brought out the prnmi.<v 1
.sensation. The report provided that no
tpeech should exceed five minutes, n-K mi
les* at the subject discussed. Several
delegates joined in a protest against ihjs
provision. claiming that it was contrary
to the fundamental principles of the Peo
ple's party, and an amendment was* re
ported to strike out the obnoxious section.
Peter Witt's *<-u»utioit.
Finally Peter Witt, of Cleveland, secur
ed recognition from Chairman Seitx. and,
mounting a chair, proce»-ded to denounce
the committee making th«* report, and '»s
serted that the committee had been
bought out by Mark Hanna. He claimed
he had proof that delegates had been
bribed by the Republicans, -and he bud
the proof, providing he was given an »n
--portunity to produce it. The matter could
not be, presented in five minutes, nor dis
cussed in that time, and he charged that
the committee's report was aimed to in -
vent it.
As Witt waved aloft in his hand a piece
of paper, which he claimed was a check
that had been given one of the delegates
by mi agent of Mark Hanna. he launched
Into a bitter Invective against the antl«
fusionists. charging that ail of them had
been corrupted oy Hanna money.
Holler Prevent M Itiol.
A score of delegates were on their feet
In an instant, crowding around ihe chair
on which Witt stood. When one of the
delegates attempted to pull Witt off the
chair, the latter struck at the delegate and
a general melee ensu» d. In which several
blears were exchanged and chairs raised
alert lu a threatening manner. A police
man who was present rushed in and int. r
rupted hostilities, and a few minuus later
a platoon of police reached the conven
tion hall, and Witt proceeded, after uuif-t
had l»eeu restored, with a bluecoat in
each aisle. The police remained until the
convention took a final adjournment.
The anti-fuslcnists were not in the least
dismayed by* t.ie charges that had been
made, and the report of the committee on
rules and order of business was adopted
in its original form by a vote of 53S> to la),
whieh was the lirst accurate showing of
the relative strength of the factions.
The convention thtn effected a perma
nent organization. Temporary Chairman
John Seitx, of Tiffin, and Temporary Sec
retary A. S. Lixhtwalter, of New Phila
delphia, being made permanent officers.
From that time on the fusionists. thougii
in the minority, were very much in evi
dence, but their efforts resulted in noth
ing except to delay proceedings.
The resolutions adopted reaffirmed the
Populist platforms adopted by the Omaha
and St. L.ouis conventions, and took loaue
on several matters of loeal interest.
To In* estimate the « hnrae*.
Hefora the morning session closed a res
olution was introduced providing for t#v>
appointment of H committer t«> in\estimate
the charges made or the floor of the con
vtat'on that delegates had l*>en cor
rupted. The fusionists who made the
chart;' 1 ? opposed an lnv.-.- igation by a
committee, claiming that it should be
made in open convention, Peter Witt was
one of live men appointed on the commit
At the afternoon session the following
state ticket was nominated:

of Tuscarawas county.
Supreme Judge— D. C. Pomeroy, of
