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

the same condition. But tho signs of

The forecast of the republican nomi

national convention, instead of being at

was confronted with a plethora

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

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

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. .

A CONFERENCE HELD.- '
The middle-of-the-road people held
conference in their rooms at the
Laclede hotel, this morning. Oaly
delegates were admitted to the rooms,
which were crowded. 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.
Halifax, N. 8 , July 21 The
American barkenline, Herbert Ful
ler," which sailed from Boston, a few
days ego, for Rusario, arrived
Halifax harbor, this mording, with the
Domes ot three murdered people ou
board. Tbe remainder of those who
left Boston on tbe vessel were itn
mediately thrown into prison. Tbe
three persons whose murder was
evidently tbe n suit of a bloodyoutbraak
on the part of some of tbe members of
tbe ore ware: Captain Nash, bis wife
and tbe second mate, Brunberg. Tbe
horrible triple murder occurred on tbe
night of the 13th instant. The affair
is, so far, wrapped in complete mystory.
notwithstanding that seven otbur men
were on board at tbe time it oocurred
besides a passenger named Monck.
