It wns nearly 11 o'clock when Chair man Bryan Caliaghan of tho county Democratic executive committee mounted the platform at Convention hall and called tho convention to or der. He woro a whito silk badge in soribed: "Bryan Caliaghan Compli ments of tho Citizens of San Mircos, Hold San Antonio Down." Over this was pinned a small, plain badge, with out inscription, from which hung pen dant a miniature photograph of Gov ernor J. S. Hogg. After reading the call for the convontion tho chairman reviewed and defended tho record of the committee of which ho was chair man and made a short but strong ap peal for tho delegates to act in tho best interests of the Ocmooratio party. Ho then aunounood that nominations for temporary chairman were in order. J$d. Uwyer, a membor of tho con testing delegation from the sixth pre cinct, was placed in nomination from the Hogg side of the house. Colonel H. B. Andrews, from the Clark side, then arose and placed Bryan Caliaghan in nomination. The latter declined, and the question on tho election of Dwyer, who was deolared temporary chairman without further opposition. A committee of five, of which Col onel W. J. Pago was chairman, was appointed to escort Mr. Dwyer to tho chair, on tiking which ho stated that ho was born and raised in tho midst of his hearers and that his history stood beforo them for inspection. lie exhorted the convention to act in tho true interest of Demoaraoy, as this being one of the largest counties, the balance of the state would look to their action. Ho then nnnounced nominations for temporary secretary in order, and Thad W. Smith, being the only nominee was unanimously clooted. A motion was then made that a committee of five on credentials bo appointed by tho ohair. An amend ment making the committee consist of ono member from each precinct was carried. Another amendment was then offored making the commit tee consist of twenty members with out regard to prcoinots. Tho chair entertained the motion for tho adop tion of tho last amendment, and it was deolared carried. "How would you havo your com mittee on permanent organization ap pointed?" inquired tho oh airman, and ho was answered by ories of "By tho chair," lrom tho Hogg sido of the house. A motion was then mado and car ried that a committee of twenty on permanent organization be appointod It was then moved and carried that the convention adjourn for twenty minutes to allow tho committees time to report. It was over an hour beforo tho con vention was called to order agaip and the committee on credentials submit ted their roport. It provided for the seating of all delegates who had ap peared and presonted credentials, and every precinot in the county was rep resented. It providod further that the delegates from caoh precinct should be entitled to oast ono voto for each twenty-five votes or majority fraction thereof oast for tho Demo cratic nandidato for govornor two years ago, making 215 votes in all. Contests were reported from only two precincts, No. G, whioh was cntitlod to seventeen votes, and No. 12, which was entitled to ton votes. Tho committco reported in favor of seating both tbo regular and contesting dele gations from eaoh of theso prcoinots, and recommends that each of theso delegations bo allowed to oast one half tho votes of its preoinct. At tho conclusion of tho reading of tho report of the committoo, S. G. Newton, from tho Clark sido of the house, aroBo and offorod a substitute for tho report, soating tho regular delegations from prccinots Nos. G and 12. Bryan Caliaghan I movo that the substitute bo laid on tho table. Voices Second tho motion. Tho chair It is moved and second ed that tho substitute be laid on tho table. Those in favor At this point Mr. Newton, who was standing on a chair and had in vain ondeavorcd to obtain recognition from tho ohair, raised his voico so ns to bo hoard above tho din that was going on and succeoded in interrupting tho chairman. "I insist," said he, "that tho ohair put tho voto on my motion to adopt tho substitute I dony the right of Mr. Caliaghan to make a motion while I have the floor." now the kigiit 6taute. The chair still failed to reoognizo Mr. Newton and proceeded a second time to put Mayor Callaghan's mo tion, when W. C. Berry, a Clark dele gate, who stood near tho platform, protested that Mr. Newton was on titled to the floor. At this Vicente Martinez, a bartender at Friedman's saloon, who was 0:10 tf tho delegates on tho Hotrg side of tho houso,stortcd toward Berry. This seemed to bo tho signal for a rush, and in a moment tho dolegates were all off tboir lect, ohairs woro overturned and men pilod on each other trying to reaoh tho parties who were oonocmod iu tho diffioulty. Berry raised his cane, but it was snatched from him by Sanitary Officer Florca Martinez wus caught and hold by Capt. F. N. Sanohez, the public weigher, who is also a special offioer. It is said that he drnw a knife, but tho officor overpowered him. No knife could be seen, howovor, from tho reporter's stand, neither wero any pistols brought to view above the heads of the crowd, although reliablo persons who woio on tho floor state that scvoral wero drawn. At this time there would have boon a despcrato freo fight had not tho con toi ding factions been so olosely paoked together that no ono could strike a blow. No one seemed to bo able to do anything to quell the dis turbance 111 til Captain Leo Hall, one of the Clark delegates, forced his way through the crowd, which fell back before his determined advance, and commanded thorn to take their seats. HiB effort had been nearly successful when T. II. Gray, a Clark delegate who was in the outskirts of tho crowd and who had been advocating thooauso 01 Mr. JNewton, was struck on tho head from behind by some unknown person. Ho wheeled and struck out in defense, but was grabbed by a dozen porsons, who dragged him out side tho hall beforo a party of friends, assisted by officers, could rcsouo him. At this point it appeared for a fow minutes as if a general fight could not be avoided, but a small party headed by Judgo T. N. Dovinc, ouo of the (Jlark delegates, again succeeded in compelling the would-be combatants to tako their soats, Tho mandoto was tho quicker obeyed as another party, headed by Captain Leo Hall, started to join Judgo Dcvino's contin gent. wm the convention split. S G. Novston again arose, when quiot had been restored, and insisted upon his point of ordor that Mayor Caliaghan had no right to make a mo tion when ho had tho iloor. Chair- mad Dwyer this time sustained him and Mr. Newton then proceeded to speak on his substitute to tho report ot the commitreo on credentials: "My purposo in offering this sub stitute in lieu of tho report of tho com mittee," said ho, "is beoauso it con stitutcd delegations to this oonven tion from those preoincts. Thoso dolegates were oleotod not by viva voce voto at a precinot primary but by aotual ballot, in whioh tollers on both sidos wero appointed. They wer2 fairly and indisputably oleotcd and this report of tho committoo is merely a movement to obstruot tho followers of Georgo Clark. I want this substitute put to a voto of tho convention, and as far as I am oon corned I am willing at all times to abide by tho decision of the majority of a Democratic convention. I do preoatc the unfortunate fight that has just ocourrcd, and hopo that such a thing may nover occur again in a Democratic convention. I movo tho adoption of my substitute." Tho motion was quickly seconded by a soore of Clark delegates, but beforo it could be put Mayor Cal iaghan aroso and moved to table it. The chair put tho motion to table and declared it oarried. Immediately a moticn was made to adopt tho roport of the committee, whioh the chair nlso put and deolared carried. This was all dono in a broath, beforo Judgo 0. A. Keller, who had jumped to his feet, could oxoloim: "Wouldn't it bo a good idea to tako tho noos as well as tho ayes?" Judgo Keller was sustainod by the entire Clark delegation, who insisted that thoy had been givon no opportu nity to voto on cither motion and in sisted that the ohair put it again. Tho chairman refused to do this, whore upon Honorablo Columbus W. Upson mounted a chair and amidst a terrible "WORTH A GUINEA A DOX." IRS (Tastoloss-Eflfbctual.) 1"F -J T.I.

It was amid a scene of tho wildest excitement that the Clark delegation filed out of Convention ball to tho street. At tho door stood 0, A.

It was eo n discovered, howovor, that tho plaoowas oocupicd, and then, through the courtesy of Captain llobt. Greon, tho use of the large Bolknap armory was tendered.
