Both tbe republicans and populists are hold ing their convention, bere, to-day, but a fusion of the two element, will be effeoted before sundown. This means tbe welding together ot all anti-Demo crats in Alabama, ' forming such a strong combination as will practically Insure democratic defeat Tbe popu list convention was called to order by Captain Reuben F. Kolb, late populist candidate for governor; while the re publican convention was called to order by State Chairman R.A. Mosely. Tbe fusion will not extend to national politics, and the republican convention will select its own delegates to . St. Louis, and tbe populists name their representatives to tbe third par y gath ering io the Mocnd City. The basis of tbe fusion is enunciated ia this resolu tion, which was recently adopted by the executive committee, of both parties : That the -conventions of the people's party and of the republican party assembled at Montgomery shall enunciate tbeir principles iu tbeir plat forms and shall seek, if possible, to nominate tbe same ticket, which will in no instance violate the distinct principles of either party, but will draw to Us support all good citizens of Alabama, wuo seek to establish bon esty in the state eleo ions, aqd ad vancement of the peace and prosperity ot tbe state and nation ; without seem ing in any way to usurp or assume any of tbe power which naturally devolves upon tbe respective state convec tions." Io pursuance of this agreement State Senator A. T.

A Mosely, the Reed leader in the state. bas witbdrawn from the race in favor of William Vaugban, the McKinley leader, and of tbe four delegates-at-large one will be .for Morton, one for Rtied and two for McKinley. By this compromise a split in tbe state conven tion has been avoided. This gives tbe Ohio candidate seventeen votes from this state onr tbe rfrstTballotrT: sides of the case appeared before Gov ernor Thornton, to-day, but up until this bour, 4:80 p. m., there bss been nothing determined in tbe matter. Tbe affair is the talk of the to wu to-day, and the outcome is looked forward to with great interest. , Turning It to Politics. New York, N.
