Platform Will Demand.
St. Louis April 3 Thomas Watson
was nominated by the Populist con
vention for the presidency tills after
noon. Samuel W. Williams of Vln
cennes, Indiana, was nominated for
tlie vice presidency.
.St. Louis, April 3. The platform to
bo submitted to tlie Populist conven
tion was completed at daybreak after
an all-night session of the committee
on resolutions. Much consideration
was given the money plank and when
finally accepted by the majority of
the committee It was not acceptable
to the minority, and a fight over the
phraseology on the floor of the con
vention Is certain. A debate also
expected on the tariff piank.
A.s prepared by the committee this
plank declar-'d that the issuing of
money is a function of the govern
ment al. me and should n-;t be dele
gated to any corporatb n or industry.
The d mand Is made that money bo
issued direct to the people without
intervention of batiks, and that It be
full legal tender for all debts, both
public and private.
Tin- working of the national bank
law is criticized and the demand made
that the power to Issue money be
taken from the. banks.
The Aldiieh bill is denounced, as Is
also the Fowler hill.
The plank on trusts demands that
the government own and control the
railroads and all public utilities
which in their nature are monopolies.
The ownership of general telegraph
and telephone lines and a parcels post
system is also asked.
Ilie .Measures I'rgctl.
Taxation of monopoly privileges
while they remain in private hands is
another feature of this plank.
Tlie initiative and referendum and
the lower to recall from oflic-e disloy
al or inefficient representativi s are
other plunks. The enactment of leg
islation looking to an improvement
ir. the conditions for wage earners is
urged. other measures demanded
are :
Abolition of child labor and the
suppression of sweatshops.
.Abolition of convict as opposed to
free labor.
Kxclusion of foreign pauper labor.
An eight-hour work day and legis
lation favoring safety appliances for
workmen.
The enactment of an employers' li
ability act within constitutional
bounds.
The immediate adoption of precau
tionary measures to prevent a repe
tition of recent mining disasters.
Work on public improvements In
times of depression for unemployed
men.
The passage of a law prohi oiling
the courts from assuming jurisdiction
Involving the constitutionality of any

THE LUMBERMEN GIVEN
BODY BLOW BY
MRJILL
He Is Wreaking Vengeance
for Passage of Antl-rallroad
Measures In State of
Washington.
MANY DEAlEiPARE
NEARLY BANKRUPT
As Result of His Increase In Rates
on Lumber Shipments, the In
dustry Hns Fallen Off In Many
Places and 60.000 Men
A'e Made Idle.
Taeoma, Wash.. April 3. The lum
ber Interests of the Pacific coast real
ize now that James J. Hill Is wreak
ing: upon them vengeance for the nu
merous anti-railroad measures which
they forced through the last two leg
Islatures. The1 lumbermen organized
and sent to the legislature every lum
berman they could elect. They creat
ed a railroad commission, passed rec
iprocal demurrage, car stake and oth
er hills.
During this time the lumbermen
were trying to force Hill to greatly
extend the territory covered by the
40-cent rate on fir lumber. Hill re
fused. His operating expenses In
creased. Suddenly last fall ho an
nounced that beginning Nov. 1, lum
ber rates would be Increased 2,") per
cent on fir and nearly as much on
cedar, lumber and shingles, and dur
ing the December hearing before the
Interstate Commerce commission at
Washington Hill shook his list In the
fjcii of the Washington lumbermen
and'deelared he would drive many of
them Into bankruptcy. This will hap
pen In the event that Hill's rates are
sustained,
A majority of the 4 00 lumber mills
dependent upon rail shipments will
then have to rebuild and remodel for
cutting or.-!y hnvy titnbors, leaving
common lumber shipments to the
southern states. On November 1st the
lumbermen secured an injunction In
the federal court against the enforce
ment of the new rates and gave a
2f0,000 bond to the railroads for the
payment of the difference if Hill's
rates are upheld. This bond has been
exhausted. The lumbermen refuse to
Increase the bond and lumber ship
ments have practically ceased.
To cap the climax, loggers have
absolutely failed to get any rate con
cessions or the establishment of the
Joint rates which they expected. In
stead, the railroads tell tho loggers
and the state railroad commissioners
that log hauling Is an undesirable
business and the roads wish to dis
cour.iKe H because of tho strain on
equipment nnd the increased liability
of wrecks.
Sixty thousand loss men are work
ing in the timber Industry than a year
ago. JU11 is having his Inning, hut
incldontly he has stopped his foi i.ier
fieiiuent visits to I'uget sound. Mif
teen years ago he do-sci-east'd the lum
ber rates and was then regarded as
the suvior of the timber industry.

Washington, April 3. The bureau
of plant Industry, one of the sub
divisions in the department of agri
culture, has triumphed In the matter
of introducing Kgyptlan cotton into
the United States, after years of ex
periments, which until recently all
turned out failures. As a result of
this .announcement, made today, ef
forts will be made to conduct the cul

Many million dollars worth of
Kgyptlan cotton Is Imported Into the
United States annually and at great
cost, on account of the freight and
the duty. This makes It too expen

department of agriculture has been
experimenting In different sections of
the United States In an effort to find
