The alleged fuslonlst tendency of Marlon

committee was provided ngainrt by u
clauee which authorizes the National
or
ganlzatlons committee to call a National
committee convention If they stall be
convinced that the National commlacc arc

The address of the committee In sjb
ance follows
That tho voters of tho Nation may feel
ssurcd that the peoples party bhall not
again be betraved In National convention
or Its working forces passed Into tbo hatidn
of the enemy and to Inspire confidence
among the masses In tho Integrity of our
acts and sincerity of our demands for in

We offer this plan of action knowing
that It will first show to every populist
that we aro willing to remain In good fel

whom we have differed In the

enemies of the peoples party provided
they will with us stand squarely on tho
