THE PROCEEDINGS IN FULL St. Locia, Mo., July 22. Things are different with the people' party to-day, iban they were at Omaha, four years ago. Then tbe populists, little out of their swaddling clothes, were anything but Inundated with candi dates; and those who participated as delegates or visitors, will remember how the convention was In session from breakfast on Monday of the nation nttal day, until long after daylight of Tuesday, awaiting a noai answer con cernlne tbe use of his name from Sec retary Gresham. with whom a commit tee was laboring, away down in Indi ana; and how, moreover, the ticket was headed by General Weaver, of Iowa, besause no other available radl ical was willing to make the race for the asking. Faor years, however, and especially tbe developments of the past two months, have wotked a ohaoge with the advocates of advanced doo , trlnes, and this week tbe eyes of mill ions of people of all political procliv Hies are fixed upon them; while in. stead of a paucity of candidates, they have a plethora, included in whioh are men of eminence in tbe nation. The convention of to-day is much larger in point of numbers than the one that assembled at Omaha, and twice as iarge as the initial conferences at Cincinnati, that brought the third party into existence. Three months ago, it looked as though United States Judge Henry C. Caldwell, of Arkansas, would be placed at the head of the ticket, while there were many who favored con. ferriog this honor upon the venerable Lyman Trumbull, of Chicago. But the latter has passed to his last ao count; Judge Caldwell is not being . talked of even as an inci lent, and the aoeation has narrowed down between the endorsement of the Chicago demo cratic nominees, or tbe nomination of an Independent ticket, headed by Sen ator Telle'', of Colorado.' - Altogether, tbe feeling among the various factions . is intense and the rrguments advanoed, pro and oon, would fill columns. Many of those favorable to the en dorsement of Bryan are unwilling to swallow Candidate Sewall, on account of bis wealth, bis previous lack of sympathy with tbe populist party, and his general aristocratic surroundings. . Tbe "middle-of the road" element of the party has made a dead set against the Nebraska candidate, and has ooaae out boldly for Teller. Oa the other band, many of the eastern delegates and some of these ; from the south, hold that tbe platform ' adopted at Chicago conforms closely to populist ideas, and that it and its nominees should be endorsed. Then, again, some of the anti-Bryanites threaten to bolt unless the convention keeps in the middle of tbe road. Alto gether, it is a decidedly mixed up sitnation, and upon which columns could be written without its being pos sible to foreshadow the actual result. Jo addition to the populists, repre sentatires of the silver foroes of the country, republican and democratic, also assembled bere, to-day. Tbircoa vention is in response to a call issued by the National bi-nietftlllo league be fore the nomination ot Bryan and Sewall, its purpose being to fuse with tbe populists, and to secure the selec tion of a Simon-pore silver candidate. The delegates to tbis convention, how ever, are also divided .between Bryan and Teller ( and with each oonvJBtion at Jog garbeada within its ranks, the proipeots of a fusion and of harmoni- oue and united action are not as pleas ing as a month ago. The latest suggestion, looking to the nomination of Senator Morgan, of Ala. bama, by tbe populist convention, on a 18 to 1 platform, is not favorably re ceived., Most of the workers of the pnpulists, suoh as Ignatius Donnelly, f Minnesota; tx Governor Waite, the Vincent brothers, formerly of Kmsas, now of Indiana; Mrs. Lease and Chair man Lwcks, of South Dakota, insist upon a re-endorsement of the Omaha plctform. On the other band. General weaver, of lowaj Robert Schilling, of Wisoonain, and other of. tbe radical war horses, are in favor of subordi nating everything this year to the white metal issue. TBE MIDDLE OP THE ROAD FELLOWS St. Louis, Mo., Jnly 2tf The mid. dle-of-tha road delegates, who followed the lead of t he Texas people, and J lined with them in their opposition to Sena, tor Butler, the choice of tbe national committee for temporary chairman, held a meeting, this morning, and re-considered their action taken late last night. The decision to run Judge Jones, of Missouri, against Senator Butler for temporary chairman' was rescinded, and it was agreed to make no opposition to the election ot Senator Sutler for the temporary presiding offi cer. Those delegates who favor a straight-out populist ticket, declare that this action is not due to any lack of strength, but is solely in the interest of harmony. Tbey claim to be able to control the convention, and express themselves as positive that Bryan will not either be nominated or endorsed. tJNCKRTAINTT AND CONFUSION PREVAIL. St. Louis, Mo., July 22. The tame uncertainty ao4 confusion prevailed condition hour f r the meeting of tbe e's party's (populist) conven ton as there did about the verlous otier matters connected with it. Ten o'clock, and then 11 o'clock and then noor. wire in turn publicly given out as the hour for meeting. At the earliest of those points of time, not fifty delegates were uesembled in the convention nail An hour later, tbe number was doubled. Tbe hall is praoaoally io tbe same oon. ditlon, as to arrrangetnen's, decora tiocs, elo , as it was when the republi oan convention assembled in it, five weeks ago, f xoppt that the plotures ot Washington, Grant. Sherman and others have been taken away. The plaoe that had been reserved tor the chairman, secretaries and other ofll cials and oelebrities on tbe stage was absolutely unprovided with tables, ohairs or any other part of the necessary furniture . on suoh occasion!). Tbe reason for this naked ness in the most important and oonspio. uous place of the hall is past findlog out. At 11:30 o'clock, this morning, the first motion made In the line of providing accommodations for the chairman and officers was by plaoing in one corner of the stand a table beat ing a large glass pitober of ice water, and a couple of glasses. There, how ever, it stopped. Soon after this.some workmen bung over the railing of the galleries a falr.sized picture of Lincoln, draped in an Amerioan lag The sight of the portrait drew out the first manifestation of applause or interest in the convention that had yet been given. .... At 12 o'clock there was still no signs of organization. The portii n of the ball reserved for delegates was i hen about two-tbirds filled, but there were not 100 spectators in tbe galleries. Probably one-third of the delegates were in their shirt sleives, and many women, who were not delegates, were seated among tbem. , Just at noon, three additional smalt tables were placed on the chairman's stand, and a tew cane back chairs were set alongside. At 12:1$, members ot the populist national oomtmttee took tbeir seats on the platform, with them,' Senator Butler, of North Carolina: Ignatius Donnelly, ot Minnesota; "Cy. clone" Davis, of Texas; Senator Allen, of Nebraska ; Gov. Stone, of Missouri. At 12 :38, the convention was called to order by H. E. Taubeneck, chairman of tbe national committee, who an nounced that the proceedings would be opened with prayer by Ke v. W. K. L. Smith, of the Third Baptist church of St. Louts. At the conclusion of the Draver. Gov. Stone, of Missouri, was introduced by Chairman Taubeneck and delivered an address of weloome Hon. Ignatius Donnelly responded to Gov, Stone's address of welcome, and made an eloquent appeal for unity, -closing in these words: "I stood at tbe cradle of the people's' party. God forbid that I should be bere to day, to attend its funeral. Stand together, friends! Lift . ud your hearts to the majesty and dig nity of the duties laid upon your shoulders. No man, however popular or great, whose interest is - worth a scintilla, against tbis great party. cheers. We must not desert it. We must not destroy it!" Ap plause. The chairman asked such members of tbe executive committee as were in the body of the hall to step up to the platform. Among those who thus., ad vanced, was Mrs. Mary Ellen Lease, who was warmly cheered.' , Chairman Taubeneck Introduced as temporary chairman of the convention, Senator Butler, of North Carolina. Senator Butler was received with three cheers, which he characterized as a . "cyclone of patriotism." He made a lengthy speech. -. Senator Butler said, in part, that he had faith that tbis' convention would not turn itself into a democratic annex Lond cheers, or into a republican an. uex More cheers, but it would find its way between tbem, and both be right. "What," Senator Butler asked, should this convention dof" and he was answered by one of the California delegates, Alfred Daggett : "Nominate a straight populist candidate on a pop ulist platform, without reference to what the democratic convention hat done." Cheers j Senator Butler spoke nearly an hour, closing his speech at 3 o'clock p. m., and being camplimented upon it by Ignatius Donnelly and other persons on tbe stand. " When Senator Butler had resumed his seat, the chairman directed the secretary to call a roll Vol tha states to name the committee ' '-on! dr.edenliaU. Tbis was done. Oa the committee on credentials, California is represented by K. M. Wardoll; Colorado, H. T. Sale ; Oregon, A. 8 Craft) New Mex ioo, T. B. Mills. On motion of Ig natius Donnelly, the convention took a reoess till 8 o'clock p. m , to enable the committee on credentials to report. After the reoess vote, , the conven tion resolved itself into an informal mass meeting. Congressman Howard, of Alabama, who will be remembered as having introduced tbe resolution to Isoeaoh President Cleveland, spoke for ten minutes. He made a bitter attack-upon the ' demooratlo party, and advooated standing on an independent ticket. Hd was followed by other speak ers, who urged the maintenance of tbe people's parly issues, first.last and all tbe time.
