Populists Nominate the Georgia
Man for President
FRIENDS OF BRYAN BOLT
Nebraska and Minnesota Delegations,
Finding Themselves Beaten, Walk
Out of Convention.
it Louis, April 4.—For president
of the tfnited States, Thomas B. Wat
sdfr of Georgia.
For vice president of the United
States, Samuel Williams of Indiana.
#he above ticket was nominated by
the People's Party convention, after
too stormy sessions throughout which
the Nebraska and Minnesota delega­
tions, working in the interest of Will
lam J.
place
Bryan, strove desperately to
Mag about an adjournment of the
ebnvention until after nominations had
keen made by the Democratic and Re
fitoblloaa
parties. Hopelessly outnum­
bered and without any chance what­
ever of gaining their object, the Ne­
braska
iiien fought desperately to the
)Mt, and when Jay W. Forrest of Al-
N. Y.,mo'unted theplatform to
Watson in nomination ttiey with­
drew from the convention, attended by
the
Minnesota delegation, which con­
sisted, however, of only onewan, T.
J, Weigham. If Bryan is nominated
at
Denver the men who walked out
of the convention here will support
THOMAS E. WAT80N.
him and they declare that the Popu­
lists of Nebraska will do so to a man.
At the morning session the Nebras­
ka men made decided headway. They
filibustered cleverly and with a knowl­
edge of parliamentary procedure that
several times threw the convention In­
to fearful snarls. They fought long
and bard to have Temporary Chairman
Jacob S. Coxey of Ohio made perma
nent chairman, not because of any af
fection they bore him, but because
tftey believed that they could tangle
him up and in that way stand off Un
nominations. Coxey, who is a genial,
easy-going presiding officer, begged
$ein to allow him to withdraw,
but they fought for him against
his will. They were beaten^ how­
ever, and George A. Honnecic
er of Jersey City was made
permanent chairman. Honnecker was
not in sympathy with the Bryan ele­
ment, and he was not a chairman of
the Coxey brand. He is a big man
With a bigger voice, and he fights.
His
rulings were fair, but he would not be
bluffed or bullied and he "talked
back" in vigorous style to the Ne­
braska men when they attacked him.

these things must have been done
Vlth the knowledge of some of the
eftlcials at Washington.
