AH the dele gation* entered qulcftly, with the excep tion of those from Minnesota, and Ne braska, both of which evoked much oo plausa as they came marttJng down the aisle*. The Minnesota men carried ban ners, and a large shield upon which wan Inscribed "Bryan and TNowne." A large number of the <teleg».'e* carried tin horns, and made their presence, mani fest by ear-splitting toots. The Ne braska men, by all o<W» the largest dele gation In the convention, having all the ahemAiUs present. came In close on the heels t>f the Minnesota men. They also carried flams and waved them vigorously as they entered. Their arrival was greet ed with cheers. Opened With Prayer. After the band of the Fifty-first lowa, which occupied a stand at the west ead of the tent, had rendered a patriotic selec tion, Chairman Butler advanced to the edge of his table and brought down his gavel three times, and sa'd: "Before entering ttpon the regular busi ness of the convention, we will listen to a prayer by Bishop (/Gorman." Th« 1.1 "hop read his Is vocation, which was Short, well expressed and appropri ate. t*halrman Butler, who had remained standing throughout the Invocation, call ed on Secretary TCdgerton to raad the call for the convention, whluh ha did. When Secretary Rdgerton had concluded the reading 1 tho band played a medley of patriotic, airs, "The Bed, White and Blue," "Yankee Doodle," "Dixie" and "The Biar-Spangled Banner" 'hedng' receiv ed each In turn with wild enthusiasm. A.fter a song try the Minnehaha Club, a local organization, Senator Btftler Intro duced Gov. Lee, of Smith Dakota, who, In behalf of his state, welcomed the conven tion to Boulh Dakota.

Gov. Lee was given close attention and was frequently Interrupted by applause, his reference to the "splendid heroism of the South African republics" bringing a burst of cheers. His allusion to W. J.

"I again welcome to South Dakota tho Kansas of the new revolution," he said In conclusion, amid laughter and applause. When the governor sat down a Kansas delegate proposed three cheers for the governor of South Dakota, and they were given with a will. Chairman Butler re sponded for the convention. Senator Roller's Response. Senator Marlon Butler, of North Caro lina, chairman of the national committee, In calling the convention together, raid: "I fer*l that It Is my duty to state a few facts concerning the party's history s'nee the last national convention. It Is well known that more or less dissatisfaction resulted from tho unpleasant but seem ingly unavoidable episode of two vice presidential candidates In the last cam paign. A few men took advantage of this dissatisfaction to appeal to an honest sentiment, or shall I say, prejudice, to create a schism in the party. They charged that there was a conspiracy on foot, headed by myself, as your national chair man, to deliver the party bag and bag gage to the Democratic organization. In the spring of IWW they loudly demanded a meeting of the national committee "to save the party." They said that t, as your chairman, should call them together and let the committeemen froin each state outline a policy for the party until the next national convention. You all remem ber that I called a meeting of the na tional committee In the summer of IK9B at Omaha I did it to give those self constituted leaders a chance to act after bearing their grievance. You all know the result. These self-constituted patriots demanded, at the committee meeting, that a resolution should be passed, declar ing that the next national convention of the People's party should be held at least one month ahead of that of the old party conventions. Mld«l le-of-the-KoHders Roasted. "In the inte|est of harmony, and in order to meet these dissatisfied self-con- patriots more than half-way, the committee accepted their resolution and pissed It unanimously This resolution has since been known as the Omaha agree ment. You all know the result. Thes*» self-constituted patriots, only a few In number, but very noisy, proceeded to bolt the action of the committee meeting within less than an hour after It had ad journed, and Issued a call for a rump convention that met In Cincinnati In Sep tember Despite this treachery and bad faith, the national committee at its meet ing held in Lincoln, Neb,, a few mouths a go, stood by that Omaha agreement to the letter and ailed tills convention to meet more than thirty days ahead of both the old party conventions. Hut what was the result. The same self-constituted patriots again bolted the action of the committee at Lincoln, after getting ev erything that they had demanded in tho Omaha resolution They went to Omaha determined to bolt and try to split the party, and failing to llnd an excuse, they bolted anyway. They went again to the meeting of the committee at Lincoln, de termined beforehand to bolt, to try to find an excuse to bolt, and falling to find an excuse, they bolted again anyway. Hut one member of the national conven tion committee voted, and only two or three who held proxies, ami of then* tw\> or three w«re men who had ilieady (Milt ed In fact by supporting tl.e llarki r and Donnelly rump ticket. These bolter*, howevei, are few In number but. Ilk * the Irishman's frog, they make nulse enough for u million." I'orreNsln the Platform. After reciting some facts connected with the management of Ihe party. Senator Itutler referred briefly to the platform to 1* adopted by the convention, sn.vlng in part. "1 will not attempt or pr*s >raa to (inline the plstfotm that this convention should adopt, hut let mo call jour arten t n to the three fundamental plana :i the last People s party national i nV. ti, n and point out their application to pr. -.-n; conditions ' Kvery political parly will go ln;o this campaign denouncing trust*.

"Is there anything radical In the posi tion of the People's party demanding that these great instruments of commerce shall he taken out of private hands and con trolled by the government ns a govern ment function, in the Interest of all the people, to the end that every individual and every business enterprise may have an equal opportunity to use these Instru ments of commerce without discrimina tion Or favoritism.

No. What is the result? A govern tpent of the trusts, for the trusts, by the trusts. What is the remedy? Stand by the constitution. I,et congress cnrry out Its sworn duty and control these instru ments of commerw in the interest of all and not rermlt them to be controlled by private Individuals for the benefit of the few." A Few Words for Fnslon. Next Senator Butler called attention briefly to the action of the People's party In the last campaign and to the situation that confronts the parly now. He said; "Never In the history of the world, Since political parties were first organized, has any party ever shown the same unselfish devotloin to principle as has the People's party. Several weeks before the People's party national convention assembled In 1*96, ervery member of the party from Maine to California, and from the lakes to the gulf, expected to see the natlor al con vention that met at St. Louis nominate a straight People's party ticket for president and vice president, but at the Democratic national convention which assembled In Chicago a few weeks befire the unexpect ed happened. The Democratic c invention, which had for many years been following false Gods, returned to the faith of Jeffer son and adopted a platform and nominated candidates that came near standing for t'ne great fundamental principles of good gov ernment which Jefferson, lackron and Lincoln advocated and amplified by their career. True, the platform did not speci fically declare for all of the creeds of Jef ferson and Lincoln, as had had People's party platforms from the beginning, but the convention named a candidate that commanded the respect and confidence of every follower of Jefferson and Lincoln to so great a degree that the Peoples party put patriotism and country abovo party, refused to nominate another candi date, but accepted the Democratic candi date, and had the nominee for vice presi dent stood for what the nominee for presi dent did, that candidate also woiuld have been accepted. With the help of the Peo ple's party and patriotic Silver Bepubllcans under the lead of Teller. Towne, Dubois, Cannon and Pettigrew, we polled for that ticket more votes than any ticket of any party had ever before received in the his tory of the nation. "Today we are facing another national campaign. Since IfSH> the trusts and mon opolies have Increased and multiplied in number and manifold power. The national banks have been given greater power to Inflate and contract our circulating med ium, and thus make prices unstable and speculate upon the products of a great na tion of seventy million of people. Since then i ho specter of monarchy and Imperial. Ism has defiantly raised its head to defy the goddess of liberty in the highest execu tive and legislative halls. Three parties are ready to Join hands to call a halt, to demand a change, and to make one su preme effort to restore the republic to tile fundamental principles laid down by the forefathers. "The People's party national convention In the first of three In ttie Held. We stand ready now to do everything In our power to unite the three parties Into a common fight for the constitution, for the country and for humanity, we stand ready to put country above party and do whatever pa triotism demand* and honor will permit to win a victory for the people and for thi republic. 1 feel that every delegate In this convention Indorses this sentiment. I know you do. Haw to accomplish this result Is not for me to dictate. I ca.n trust It to your wisdom and patriotism." At the conclusion of his address Chair man Butler, in a. short speech, Introduced the temporary chairman of the conven tion, P M Rlmral, of Minnesota Mr Rlniiril received a vociferous welcome from the convention, the Minnesota dele gation In particular distinguishing Itself by lusty cheers and blasts of horns. Mr, Klngal spoke in part as follows. H I iimml Also Talks. "We are assembled today for a two fold purpose to reaffirm the Declaration of Independence and to name the next president of the United States. The Peo ple's party has a mission to perform. It has gained some great victories; It will continue to gain others. Klght years ago the party was launched. For the first time In a quarter of a century was holattd .I**lll thw Hag of political equality, for the first time In recent years a voice of protest was raised against the growth of empire. The convention at Omaha In 1592 declared the country was on the verge of financial ruin A *tornt of derisive laughter was raised In the monopoly preaa, hut the ruin came to thousands who had laughed at the warning. "We do not rejoice at their downfall The mission of the People's party Is to build up, not to tear donw.

Tarsney, of Missouri, be put on the committee on resolutions as repre senting the Philippine islands, since he had lately been in that part of the world investigating conditions. The motion evoked a storm of disap proval, and it was declared to be out of order. The temporary chairman then suggest ed that the convention adjourn to allow the committees time to formulate their reports. The suggestion was adopted, and the convention adjourned until 8:30 o'clock. Nothing Done in KvenlnK Session. The evening sesrton was devoted entire ly to singing und music by the Flfty-iirst lowa Regiment band. When the temporary chairman, Mr. R!ngdal, called the convention to oraer, at 8:40 p. m.. It was announced that the committees on credentials, resolutions and permanent organization were not ready to report. Cries of "Pettigrew," "Jerry Simpson" and "Cyelone Davis." "Speech, speech," at once went up, but none of these gentlemen appeared. "Senator Pettigrew is suffering from throat trouble and wishes to be excised," announced Chairman Ringdal, "and Mr. Davis will speak here tomorrow night." Chairman Ringdal then introduced Rev. Mr. Hartch. of lowa, who, he said, "has some songs of his own production." The minister, who is Wind, sang two songs, which were received with wild cheering. Following the singing, the Fif ty-first lowa Regiment band played a medley of operatic and other airs, The convention then adjourned until !> o'clock tomorrow morning. The doors were opened and all outside of the tent were admitted to the concert given by the band. Question of Vice Presidency. At midnight the situation with tho vice presidency was »till the paramount ques tion among the delegates, and the solu tion of the problem was apparently as far off as It was when the delegate® began to arrive. It looks as If that question would be early precipitated upon the con vention by a minority report from the committee on credentials against allowing a full vote to t>io Texas delegation. This delegation Is entitled under the rules to 120 votes, bint there are present only a small number, comparatively. They favor nominating:, and there may »e an effort to reduce their voting strength to con form to the actual number present. The Minnesota delegation held a meeting dur ing the evening, 'buit did not recede from lt*i position In Towne's behalf. There Is little doubt that there Is a dear majority In the convention favorable to nominat ing, and of those Mr. Towne is said to now control a majority. The i»resent out look is favorable to him, but his oooo nents ore very active. llot Flwht in Credentials Committee A hot fight developed In the meeting of th«? committee on <*rede*itlals tonight over the tight of delegates present to cast the entire vote of their states when some of toe delegates are absent. When the matter came to a vo<te it was decided by A\ to 1 that the old rule should prevail and that delegates present shall east the entire number of votes lo which their states are entitled. The o*io nega tive vote was cast by Committeeman Frank Madden, of Colorado, who will present a minority report to the convention tomor row morning in an effort to have toe vote cast according to the actual number of delegates present. Drawing the Platform. The committee on platform of the Popu list convention met at 7 o'clock and at midnight was still in session, debating tua various planks presented. Kx-Congress man Jerry Simpson acted as chairman of the committee Among the planks agree*! upon hefoie midnight were those relating to Imj*- rial tem. militarism, trusts and the finances Tho financial plank declares for the free coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. The declaration on the Idaho troubles, which was drawn by Senator Hettfeld, Is aa follows: "We denounce the action of the governor of Idaho and of the federal government in using th« military arms of the government to abridge and suppress the civil and In* herent rights of the laborers in the Co*ur d*Alenes by establishing an infamous pe;mst system which denle* citixens the sa rel right of orgmislng for their mutual pr*»- tei tlon and advancement and com pa's th-m to renounce their manhood, their liberties and their rights tjefo-re being permitted to seek employment."

CINCINNATI, 0., May 9.—Today at 1:30 p. m., the middle-of-the-road Populist na tional convention was called to order ■>t Robinson's opera house. There were 470 persons In the delegates' chairs and 7.V) in the galleries when Na tional Chairman Deaver rapped for order. Committees were appointed and retlted to their halls. Ignatius Donnelly delivered an Impassioned address in which he declar ed that tho middle-of-the-roaders must stand together and save mankind. At the evening session, the credentials committee reported and precipitated the first struggle of the convention. It aro-e over the votes to be allowed the delega tions, which were not fully represented. It was finally voted to amend the report In accordance with the rail for the convention and allow the delegates to cast the full vote of their respective states. For In stance, the two delegates present from Kansas will have forty-three votes apiece. Permanent organization was effected by the selection of Col. W. L,. Peek, of Georgia, for chairman and former Oov Watte, of Colorado, for vice chairman.

At 11:15 p. m., the convention adjourned until S o'clock tomorrow morning It is the Intention to wind up business tomorrow without taking a recess. Ilonuril Will Henil the Ticket. Tonight it appeared almost certain that former Congressman Howard, of Alabama, will head the ticket. His probable mate is problematical. National Chairman Deav er has declined to accept the nomination for the vice presidency and it possibly will go to Donnelly. The latter appears per fectly content to abide by the wishes of the convention. From the resolutions committee's prog ress and it was still In session at mid night. It appeared that the declaration of principles to be placed before the country, will be of such a nature as to practically establish anew the greenback question That plank will probably call for an un limited issua off "government paper cur rency." Silver is likely to be dropped. The other lending planks will demand direct legislation and government ownership of railroads and telegraphs. Proceed I ntcs In Detail. National Chairman D. Cletn Denver called the convention to order at 1:50 p. m. He Introdunred Mayor Tafel, who wel comeil the delegates to Cincinnati. When Chairman Denver rapped for or der there were on the floor of the opera house 47rt men and women occupying dele gate seats. In the galleries a count of noses revealed the presence of 750 per sons. When Prof. Tlovse concluded Chairman Deaver delivered his formal address to the delegates. Hl* remarks were/loudly ap plauded throughout. The Fnslonlst* Scored. National Secretary Joel Parker then read the call for the convention. Parker was received with tumultuous applause. He prefaced the reading with a few re marks on the work of the national com mittee following the disruption in the Populist forces at Neb., on Feb ruary If) last. He said: "We have had a terrific struggle to hold together the honest men of the party, hut 1 believe we have succeeded,.and the People's party is saved." He excoriated Senator Allen and de clared that Hutler and Allen at tiioux Falls "cannot sell and barter the vote of the People's party." Honnril Chosen rhnlrmnn. At the conclusion of the reading of the call Chairman Deaver announced that the national committee hail recommended the selection of former Congressman W. M. Howard. of Alabama, for temporary chairman The convention unanimously' ratified the recommendation. Mr. How ard was received with much applause. He said: References bv the temporary chairman to the unlimited issue of government paper currency to government ownership of railroads and telegraphs, public con trol of public utilities and to the princi ple of direct legislation were gree.ted with cheers. The Routine Work. Organization was then completed by the selection of Temporary Secretary J. C. Al len. of Oklahoma, and Assistant Secre tary lOarl Richardson, of Illinois. The se lection of regular committees was then called for. When the committee <>n cre dentials had been completed, a motion was put and carried to call the roll once more and that each statu name all Its commit teemen at once, the four committees to he named being permanent organization, order of hualness, resolutions and plan of party organization. At the completion of the committee a motion WM made for a recess until S o'clock There were nu merous and loud objections to this, and the motion was withdrawn.
