T\V.e \ conference "Of Populist lenders , which hag been In session tile past two days , nd- Journcd sine die. The resolutions committee reported an address to the public , which was adopted , declaring that all differences between the two factious * of the party have been set tled. It Is expected that the two na tional committees , which megt here today , will ratify this action The 'committee appointed to select the -"members of a committee of one from * N nch state on organization work in connection with the national commit tees was unable to complete Its work -and It was by resolution empowered to complete the committee at Its lots- -uro.

Dofrunce of Nebraska , They are to be members of the larger com- jnltteo when It is completed. The following address was reported T > y the committee on resolutions and "was adopted : "The manifest unrest which everywhere - -where appears In the nation demon strates the dissatisfaction of the -American people with the present Tnanasemont of government and ar gues the necessity of the reform forces coming together in united ac tion at the ballot box to obtain proper - or legislation whereby the right of the people to self-government may bo lad for themselves and their posteri ty. Therefore , wo , the Populists of the United States , bavins this day at the city of Denver united forces for the distinct understanding that all Bast differences as to policy shall be and now are permanently settled , and experience having demonstrated the futility of any attempt to secure the enactment of our truth either though the Republican or Democratic par- tics , we believe the time is now at hand when the United People's party should declare itself emphatically op posed to any affiliation with either of these parties and unqualifiedly In favor of national political action. "Our fundamental principles are known to all Populists and are no where better stated than in that 1m- , anortal document enunciated at Oma ha July 4 , 1898. However , for the benefit of the uninformed , wo declare our adherence to the demands for ( a ) a money , whether stamped on gold , allver or paper , to be coined and Is- aued exclusively by the government and made a full legal tender for all debts , both public and private ; ( b ) a system of transportation and the UranBinlEBion of Intelligence , owned by the public and operated by the govern ment at the coat of service ; ( c ) land for use rather than for speculation , and abolition of alien ownership of land ; ( d ) American ships for Amer ican foreign commerce , without a cent of subsidy. "And as an open door for all economical reforms , wo urge the rule of the people through ( ho optional referendum and Initiative and the re call of derelict officials , "Confident in the Justice of the prin ciples here sot forth , firmly confident that their triumph In government vould be for the best Interests of the people , we call upon the patriotic citizens of this country to Join with us in bringing about their enactment Into law. With these principles flrm- ly established , equal Justice would preVail - Vail , special privileges would be elim inated and ours would be , as patriots everywhere desire , a government of the people , for the people and by the people.
