E Watson of Georgia had been named for

made iu the fute of an oppposltloii no bitter
thut , after the convention adjourned , tome
of the ladlcals held n rump convent ion
The lubt session of the conveuMnn whica
lusted from 9 SO thlt. morning until ultnost C
o clock this nfternoou , wub uiurKed by
beetles of turbulence nud iiolt. ) excitement
which several times bordere'd em uctuul llot
and which almost precipitated personal eol-

But the real ! } dramatic fca'tncs of this j
wild ECbElon wete enacted behind the Bee-ties.
Rumcis of what was going on in the wings
reached the delegates , but they Ktie-A noth
ing definite 1) . and to the vei ) end a mtb-
biige from Mr Bian whlca might have
changed the rebult V.UB Kept f-om their
To utld to the other features of the day ,
the convention wub without music uud the
hull was litleied and Ijeilrewn with the
grime und dlit ot jesterduy's tv\olvo-hour
bitting It was not expected that the con
vention v ould last mure than three daB
and the contract made -with the local com
mittee cxpiied last nirht.
The populist Br > an inaimpein decided nt
the outset toda } to dlsrcpnid Mr Bryan's
telegram of lust night nnd to nominate him
end Rtrcightcn out the tangle afterward.
They htnrted out to rush his nomination
through before uii ) other candidate could
tie put iu the field , Ub a font ball team , by
means of a brilliant A ) ing wedge , Boine-
timcb forces a goal But the Intel ferenco
was too much for them and their line was
bioken. General Weaver of low a , the
populist candidate in 1BS2. placed Hrjnu in
nomination , Mid General Field of Virginia ,
who wub Weaver b lunnlug mute , ufter a
brief speech , moved to make the nomination .
Chairman Allen held the motion WUB in
order , and until that motion WUB de
rided the call of htulcs for nominations ,
which was the Older of the convention , could
not pioceed This ruling almost precipi
tated a riot. Some che-eie-d , some cuibed ,
came fought , and there would piobabl ) have
liecn Berlous trouble had not the Brnn
leaders wlbcly concluded to abandon this bo
re guided hlph-uandod piogrum
But in doing so they opened the flood
gates , nud for Elx hours the convention was
deluged with oratory. Almost ever ) ' Elate
and terrltor ) had itb inning em the plut-
foim Most of the BpcnkerB bccondcd
Bonn's nomination About flftj Eccoiid-
Ing bpeeckefi were made nnd some of them
were both eloquent uud blillluut. The
mlddle-of-tbc-road contingent iiiblbted upon
knowing at every opportunity , inluvv ot
his te-legrain , whether Bnun would Bland
on the platform uud ucccpt the nomination.
But ull these pointed qucbtloiib we-re neatly
pairled Judge Green of Nebraska uud oth
ers -vouched for BIUUB sympathy with pop-
ulihllc principled , but that WUB ull the butlE-
facllou the radicals could get The Texas
delegation then hent u me-Buage to Mr Biyun

But the dunociatic candidate hod he-en in
cunblunt eominuuicution wilh Senator JOIIC-B ,
chairman of the democratic committee , and
word came to the convention that Jones
had u meiiBugc vhlch hewuuted the conven
