The City Com edition of the Xorris wins ot the District Democracy was held this morning: at the Academy of Music, open ing at 11:15 o'clock. When the convention was called to order bj John T Clarke as chuirman of the Xor ris Central Committee the orchestra of the theatre ai onl partially filled and the galleries -were empty. As the busi ness or the convention proceeded, how ever, a large number of spectators came in. Calling the convention to order Mr. ClaiLc said rThe Demon alio party is never without plontj of luateiial for the candidacy. The fiieat oiganieMtion can put forth states men in whose aims the part; will be as safe as a new born babe on the breast of its mother. But this tumpaign calls for a man of Xapolconu statesmanship, and in mj opinion that man is William Jennings Brjan (applauee) ami tinder his leader ship triumphant vutoiv will be ours next November The doom of imperialism, Ilanua. and the truMs is sealed ' In closing Mi Clarke suggested that del egates in rising to address the chair should eall out the name of the district thej represented "With a few exceptions among the members of the Democratic Central Com mittee." he said I wish them Godspeed and I call the meeting to order " The roll call showed the follow tag del egates and alternates present Fust Iimrt idtiw Rrver.

Walth, Twen tieth district A recess of thiitj' minutes was then taken This time was spent in some live lv jockejtng among the delegates It was becoming evident that the sentiment for an instructed delegation "was gaming strength and that despite the -attitude of Mr Xorris the delegates might take the bitb in their teeth and demand Brjan iu stiuctions Indeed, Delegate William F. Hart was almost alone in heading the de mand for an unlnstructed delegation. I lie I'ermniietit OrKmiiimtioii. Mr. Xorris was not disposed to fight the new movement and a conference which he held at 12.30 with a few of his followers resulted in a decision to let the resolutions of instruction go through. If ou bos want to instruct, why go ahead," explained Mr. Xorris. "I am not here to set mj judgment against the judgment of the united delegation." When the convention reassembled at 12:43 o'clock the Committee on Credentials brought in its report. The report showed that there was only one contest and that from the Eighteenth district. It recom mended that the anti-Xorns delegates be seated Thej are Samford, Home and Ryan The report was adopted Tills ac tion left the convention solid for Norris with the evceptlon of seven men W.

Eleventh district; Harry O. Middle ton. Thirteenth district; Dennis P. Calla ghau. Twentieth district; Charles T. Shel ton, Twent j -second district. The announcement drew forth a storm of protests from the delegates from the Twen tieth district who are opposed to an in structed delegation. The turmoil was in creased when Delegate Hanvej introduced a resolution ordering the delegates to Kan sas City to vote for William J Brj-an It was received with great applause Chair man Clarke declared the motion out of or der and refeired it to the Committee on Resolutions. The convention f'en took a recess for twent j' minutes in order to give the Com mittee on Resolutions time to prepare its repoit. Iiixti uetioiiN for llrjiin. When the convention reassembled at 2 o'clock the Committee on Resolutions re ported as follows "Resolved. That as an evidence of our love and faith in W J.

It is cctremelj probable, however, that some of the men that have been at the head of the move ment for instructed Brjan delegates will be themselves chosen It is also likelv that organized labor in the District will be represented in the delegation. Among those who hive been somewhat discussed bv their friends are Cotter T. Bride. William Holmead, and Hermann Schukies These men have all been stcad ilj at woik for Mr. Brjan and for a Brv an delegation since the inception of the auti-Xorris movement and theie i a sen timent among prominent Brjan men that their services should be recognized.

They come from every ue the districts and are apparentlj Incon testlble proof that wholesale and open corruption existed. It is on these affida vits, and in view of the protest made bj the Brjan Democrats at the citj conven tion todav, that the delegates will ask to be seated as the valid representatives of the Democracy of the District The people who have been at the head of the Brjan movement express the utmost confidence that their claim will be allowed againot that of the Xorris delegaes. In some instances prominent Republi can friends of 31r. Xorris acted as judges of the primaries. In some of the districts a dozen or more men formed in a circle at the ballot box and marched steadily around the bo for half an hour or more depositing ballots by the wholesale. One prominent Xorris man went to several districts and deposited in each a large bundle of Norris ballots. These arc a few of the things sworn to by reputable ejewitnesses. It is said that even the policemen held their noses at some of the rottenest of the proceedings of the evening. The protest from the Brjan Democracy published in another column gives tnese allegations of fraud their first official form. On Trial for AsMnnlt.
