It ha-- been said, that there is a spirit of iltvxatMaction manifest among the club memlership,' and thafa large number of clubs expected to surrender their charters.

The Populist com mittee on resolutions this morning rejected Coxey's non interest I earing bond scheme by a vole of 14 ajes to 25 najs At 11 o'clock the committee had agreed uiion the preamble to the platform and several sections of the financial plank. Coxey will fight in the convention for his scheme. Mr. Coxes complains bitterly of Chair man Weaver's rulings. "Czar Reed," said he, "Is not Ju It with Weaver. He makes motions vv Idle sitting in the chair, and then forces them through the committee. I have never seen anv thing so arbitrary In all my experience."

Mlddle-of-theiltnod Men Trying to Sum- Something. St. Louis, Jul 24. The middle of-Uie-road men, who from tlie rirsl have de:uoi strated much more enthusiasm than ca paut for organized effort, apicar to be entirely demoralized by tt-eir crushing de feat vesterday. They now admit that tlie nomination of llrjan is a foregone conclu sion, but are Irving to save something out of the wreck by substituting a candidate of their own choice for Vice President (n place of Sen-all. The agreed-upon program Is to submit a minority report from the committee on rules, giving the selection of a Vice Presi dent precedence iu the order of the busi ness over the nomination of a Presidential candidate. "This is to be done," as one of the more conservative of the anti Brjan men explained to a United Press, reporter this morning, "because a good many or our people have promUcd that if they will vote for Bryan they can have tht-lr own way about the Vice Presidency, and we want to make sure they can deliver the goods " The Texas people who are endeavoring to hold the anil Bryan delegates together and obtain an agreement to bolt in case the ticket or platform are not acceptable to tho middle-of-the-road contingent were in session at their headquarters nearly all night, and again this morning. There wer firr speeches, both for and against a bolt, but there wab no definite decision, the cooler heads seemingly having prevailed upon the radicals to wait until action was taken by the convention before deciding to bolt. The plan that finally mctwlth most favor -was for all the delegates to remain in the convention until the end, and call a con vention of their own, to assemble imme diately after the adjournment for the pur Iosc of nominating a straight Populist tandld.ite on the Onnha platform, -with one or two added planks. MIDDLE-ROAD MEW ANGRY. 1 hretitened to Holt Tlecanno Defeated on Permanent Chairman Innue. 81. Louis, ilo , July 24. The "ralddle-of-the road" men had a lively caucus at the Southern Hotel last night. The speak ers claimed that the reason they were de feated on the permanent chairman issue was because they had pat up a man who was unknown. At first there was a strong inclination toward a bolt, and a resolution was introduced which declared for a bolt unless a straight, "middle-of-the-road" ticket and platform were adopted. Ex-Lieut. Gov. Glhbs, of Tcas, made a strong speech against the resolution. Other-1 speakers followed, urging the angry dele gates to go slow and do nothing radical. After two hours of debate the resolution- was withdrawn, and a steering committee was appointed to lay out a plan ot action" The "middle of the-road" men have de-. termincd to make a strong fight on the plat form, and a bolt may come unless the Omaha platform is adopted. Little was- sald for or against Bryan in the caucus, but the speeches against Sewall and In favor of a Populist Vice President were loudlyr cheered. PLANKS IN THE PLATFORM.- Declarations In Favor of Free Silver and Direct LeglHlatlon. St. Louis, Mo., July 24. The subcom-" miltee on platform appointed by Gen.. Weaver remained in session until late tn the evening. Many ot the proposed planks caused considerable discussion and come opposition among those disposed to insist upon a radical declaration ot principles. Especially was this the case in the sub committee having charge ot the financial plank. Gen. Coxey, of Ohio, re-enrorced by Mr. Jerome C. Kcarby, ot Texas, urged the adoption of CoxeyB non-intcrest-beoring bond scheme, but they were outvoted, and declared tholir Intention -of submitting, a mlnority report to the full committee.'

Tlie call resulted in showing 196 Union soldiers, 18 Confederates and 4 Mexican soldiers represented in the convention. Out of the roll call grew a suggestion, which crystallized Into a motion which was ugrecd to, that the old soldiers and sailors of the Union, Confederate and Mexican war armies form the busU of an organiza tion within the party for campaign pur poses to save the Union.

Hi atsi.raing tin. ocaen, jir. oiuv ens states that "a very mall area directly around the basin in question, bus not yet been filled 10 the level designed by the officers in charge, because, previous to the present act ot Congress, it has been an open ques tion what should be done with that Lasln It was originally designed for flushing the Seventeenth street sewer, but has never been connected therewith, and now that Uic sewer is to be discontinued, the ta-sln is not needed. "It would cost the government $27,000 to fill up and destroy it, or it would cost $30,000 to wall it around like the rest of the water front. The saving of that amount or money to the government is an economic feature which bad much weight in inducing Congress to grant the Little Basin to this city as a bathing pool " RAISE TUE BANKS.

Mr. Stevens proposes that the appropria tion of $4,000 be used to dear the basin or obstructions; to grade a portion of the northwest side us a public driveway along the water's edge, and to grade the rest of the shore at a slant of 1 to 10 from high tide line Inward to where the water shall be four feet deep at the established level, the bottom thereafter to be of evno grade to the edge of the driving pool, at which it shall he four aud one-half feet deep. The plans, as heretofore published In The Sunday Times, are elalorately set forth . and the approval of them by the Secretary of War Is solicited. Crushed the Hoy'M Foot.
