VOL 2 VII. EAST LAS VEGAS, NEW MEXICO, TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 21, 1890. NO. 224 THE POPS PROVOKED They., Captured the Chicago Plattdrrri, but They Object to iit Man SewalL THE STRUGGLE FOR BRYAN Everybody Is Yet at Sea as to What AcIIoh (he Convention Will Take To-M.orrow. of A NUMBER OF PLATFORMS St. Locis, Mo., July 21. A ooupl of months since it looked as though the political situation in this presidential year would be becalmed. McKinley i nomination was conceded; the demo crate were at sea regarding a cand date, and the populif.tu were about in the same condition. But tho signs of . the times wero wrongly interpreted and as a result the present summer tvilnoaaoa nna et t.ha mant. Axlranrfti nary political conditions in the history of the country. The forecast of the republican nomi nee has proven correct; the democratic national convention, instead of being at sea reeardlne an available candidate was confronted with a plethora them, and the next two or three day in this city are likely to witness the iuusl extraordinary uumpuuaiiuus ui nu extraordinary political year that the most vivid imagination could conjure Two national conventions open to morrow that of the silrerites, who throw all other issues to the winds, in order that the while metal may lead and the other the populists, who are equally enthusiastic in favor of the 16 to 1 doctrine, but who nevertheless hold that it should not be given over whelming precedence, to the exclusion of the nationalization of railroads and telegraph", individual ownership oi land, government control of banks equal suffrage, the referendum, and the many other radical reforms that go to. ward making np the platform of the people's party of the United States, As to the matter of candidates, the difference of opinion is about as great Some of the silverites pure and simple believe that the most diplomatic course U to endorse the nominees of the democratic national convention. ' .1.1 - f . .1 . U Uw. Un 'viiiers, ajEuu, uuuiouu iui ui tut? nomination of Senator .Teller and a southern silver man, the cause of the white "metal would be strengthened, and a majority of the votes in the electoral college assured. So also th populists. Some are Instructed or favorable to Bryan, others instructed or favorable to Teller, while the ma j jrity are on the fence. The leading powers of the Knights of Labor come out openly in favor of the distinguished statesman from Colorado, while on the other band, some of the best minds " in the populist convention hold that' only the endorsement of Bryan and Sewall would be good politics. The fact that the American Bi-Metahic union, under whose auspices the silver convention to-morrow is to be held, has come out in a proclamation characterizing the Chicago tickst as a splendid one, and urging its endorsement and ratifica tion, still further complicated the situation. It is a mixed up condition, all around, and tven the most astute of the populist and silver leaders are in a situation in hen they wonder just where tbey are at.1' The morning before tin opening of ths two conventions find but little change in the situation, so far as the Straight-out, middle-of-the-road popu list are oonoerned. Thy have been mollified by the intimation thrown out by the chairman of the national demo cratio committee, that if they endorse the ticket ho is prepared to give them a representative on the executive com mittee of the democratic party. The utmost concession the extremists sug gest is the nomination or endorsement pf Bryan upon a distinct populistio platform of their own devising, and the substitution of a populist in the place of Sewall. The real test of strength between the Bryan und the anti-Bryan forces will some at to-day's meeting of the national committee. . A COMPROMISE PBOP08ITION. E-. J. Jtfiies, one of the Michigan delegates to the convention, has pre pared a compromise proposition, which he believes will be acceptable to both factions of the party. It pro poses that in the states west of the Mississippi river, where the populists greatly outnumber the democrats, only uopulfst eleotors shall be voted for. In Michigan, Indian?, Illinois, Iowa, Wisaonsin and other doubtful states of the middle west, democratic electors alone shall receive the combined vote of the two parties, ii proportion as democrats are stron.er there than populists. Ia the south, both parties fusy contend for the eupremacr, with, out spy attempt at a combination. If when the states are counted, the com bined ticket shows a majority, then the party casting the larger vote in the combination shall take the presidency and the other, the vloe-presidency. This plan provides that tbe populists Shall nominate their own ticket, which will not inolude the names of either Bryan or Sewal). IX SKCRKT 8E;810lf. The national committee of the national silver party met this morning at the Lindell hotel, but after a brief session, a recess was taken until 1 o'clock, this afternoon, when a secret session was held at Dr. Mott's room at the same hotel ; George P. Keeney, of California, presided. - THK ON LI TWO CONTKjTS. There are but two contests of im portance, those from Colorado and Illinois. The former has involved the entire state delegation; the latter has tffisnty-scven delegates from Cook oounty, (Chicago) The Colorado roctes' ants were headed by ex Governor Waitc, bu he having declared In favor of the Bryan nomination, bis colleagues have dip sid him for anothir leader. INCRKA'KD REPRESENTATION. After the matter of tbe membership of tbe committee itself had been de termined, the committee proceeded to oonsider the applications by a number of states for an increased representa tion in tbe convention, In making up the table of delegates f jr this convention, the nationnl committee was compelled to act upon data contained In tbe various political almanac?. In the case of a cumber of ttates, this information proved Inaccurate. Tbe committeeman from each southern state demonstrated by certified copies of tabulation of votes in his state that tbe populists are entitled to an increase In the' number of delegates of from one to five, the latter cumber beiog allowed Texas Tbo several Territories are allowed six delegates instead of four. Oklahoma is given the same right of represents tinn . as tbe stales that is, one delegate for its delegate in congress, one for each 2.000 votes, which made its total representation nine. B cess was then taken. TEMPORARY, CHAIRMAN. On the matter of a temporary obair man, the two c-indidates are Gen. J, B. Weaver, of I wa, who represents the Bryan Sewall element, and Senator Butler, of North Carolina, who is op posed to the endorsement of the demo cratio ticket. It is understood that General J. B Weaver, of I iwa, will be chosen tern porary chairman of the convention Thus far, the opponents of Bryan have not united upon their man for tbe place. .

Speeches were made by advocates of a separate ticket, and the middle-of-the-road people were urged to stand together and op pose tbe nomination or endorsement of Bryan. . POPULIST NATIONAL COMMITTEE. The national committee of the popu- ist party met at 10:30 o'clock, this morning, to perfect the temporary or ganization of the convention. Chair man Taubenectc presided and about fifty members were present. H. B. TACBENKCK, National Cb air in in and antt-Bryan Leader. NO PROMISES UADE. s Senator Jones, of (A-ckAnsas, was quite confident, Ibis morning; that thje endorsement of Bryan, woajJcJ be the outcome of the populist con4ation. In tbe course of his talk, Senator Jones denied thai; he had made any state ment offering to place a certain num ber, or any number, of populists upon tbe democratic executive committee. "No promises of any kind have been made by me," said Senator' Jones, but I have said, all the time, that in this fight for the cause ot free silver, republicans, democrats, populists and silverites must stand together. So far as I am personally concerned, I pro pose to do all I can to bring about this union of foroes." BRYAN MEN NOT SO CONFIDENT. Some of the Bryan men are notsa confident, to-day, of their ability to control tbe convention. Congressman Jerry Simpson, of Kansas, says that the outlook for Bryan is not so encour aging and he is disposed to hedge a little on his prediction that Bryan would be an easy winner. I'LKKTT OF PLATFORMS. Notwithstanding the superabundance of platform?, which . individual dele gates have prepared to unload upon tbe committee on resolutions, tbe sen timent grows stronger that the Ne braska platform, adopted in Omaha, July 4th, J892, will form tbe basis ottbat committee's recommendation. IT LED TO A VOLT. This was tbe platform that ex-Governor John P. St. John, of Kansas, at tempted to force upon tbe prohibition, ists in Pittsburg, last June, and which being rejected, led to the bolt of the free-silver prohibitionists.
