San Antonio Exp-eee, May 59.
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
