quit the That party has had what of a hard time aa hard times are considered by the world generally Unlike the great governor of our state it was not born in a storm but came in on the breeze which presaged tho storm It iias been the butt of ridicule Its members have been scoffed at Its tenets have been laughed at signed at and profoundly over But it has the honor cO being respected not tb say feared by the dominant party In the state and its ance has sought by both parties ld as aro and they are as wild as the veriest nightmare the rats who have national fairs have to and adopted many of Crude as are their Ideas thit the can party haa sought -an alliance as as national affaire are concerned So the populist may have been its will have the consolation in Texas at least of having the tl parties knuckle io it The democratic party has gone to its knees for those votes which had either gone or promised to go to Uie populist party The cans have done less In the way of tion Ii has not c needed a principle as have the but they have offered to trade in the matter of offices with those whom In other states they declare to be the greatest enemies to a republican form government The democrats at Chicago announced doctrine and voted for principles that were thoroughly antagonistic to every ic Idea They did It to court the votes of this large and idiotic giant The republicans with much ado denounced this Jabberwock and forthwith trade with it for votes In Texas and elsewhere Both the old parties thought that the parts the Jabberwock was mean by that they thought it to be of so much life and blood and enthusiasm it was uncontrollable Jones of Ar- kansas Quay of Pennsylvania believed It and they people on word the bone and sinew of tho now ment is enthusiastic and intense But all Uie leaders of the two parties forgot one thing and that Is that the leaders in the new party in some time in the past be- longed to the old parties There are crats in the populist party who learned their trado from Jones There are those in the same party who learned their nosa from Quay They were not ful In either of tho old parties probably because there were so many ambitious men but they remained In them long enough to learn all the tricks of the It is not to be supposed that even If they had suddenly experienced a change of heart and were for the that they would forget their old habits Surely the proceedings of the convention of the people closed Jls labors yesterday ought to convince the leaders of the old parties that they have a hard lot to deal with The proceedings of the ought to convince the old ers Hn the two parties that they have uine politicians to deal with There were something in hood of a thousand delegates of this new party here They were a crowd They came here to utter defiances against the world They did It the first and ond day Yesterday afternoon tho as they are pleased to call It ad- and left its whole affairs in the hands of the men who have been cians in the party And those to whom the matter was left aro out for a trade They have consummated It with the republicans and huve only one more element to deal That is ment What the latter designated will do remains to be soon and until this is done no one should speak other to say that tlic politicians of the can who control are in thorough agreement with tho populist who control and tho proposition Is or will be to tha gold bug politician who Is expected tn control looking to ono thing the overthrow of that element in which under a common banner has all the elements to be found in true re- true democracy or true racy Is loved in the state WELL Leaders Hud u Hard Time Themselves in lint Did It It wao a hard hardest they have ever the populist ers won and the convention adjourned without any official declaration that Texas would have none of Bryan A dozen times It appeared that the convention was getting beyond their con- trol and en each occasion it has seemed that nothing could stop the offering and adoption of a resolution that No Watson no the unanimous of Texas populism Hut by hook and by crook they kept it down Fair to on that promises to an- other ami threats for a fourth man have kept it down But a Not a smoother piece of political engineering has ever done in Texas by any set of politicians The rank and file were told day after day of what was going on but the very aroused by these were adroitly suspicions of those who gave them warning The most radical of the middle of the were pant at first to declare straight out when they came here comether was put on them became the most conservative ard were made converts to the plans of the atd aided In carrying them out without knowing what they were They didn't ask they were Once they were persuaded that their suspicions of the leaders were without foundation they blindly followed again out stopping to see would land them They know they want Bryan and when assumed that they would not have to take him they ask who they were going to get didn't insist that they should have a straight populist national ticket didn't demand that the which to manage that them should be instructed as to who to put up They did none of these tilings What they did do was to go among their brother delegates with the glad tidings that Texas was still in the middle of the road and Bryan would not receive tors by the aid of Texas And the good news spread and spread and delegates stayed in the convention to see that did so on record In the matter stayed there to see that no such declaration was made The little leaders didn't know much about it but they told what to do did it well So the populist convention which assembled with a whoop for No Watson no Bryan on tbe outside of the hall stayed in session four long days at spake not a word on the question which evary one of the rank and file thought would be tho mainspring of the whole convention The floor managers were Jenkins of Brown Harry Tracy Bentley of Taylor They deserve much credit fpr the work they did They were not the planners They ruled i he plans Xot tried to execute so If harU were The in i v I Thv fould lunti working to

them be suppressed at the in- stance of one who nay be wiser but who can not be truer cause of rur party than are the many who sustained the now noted but defunct resolutions For the present let those who will still the populists of Texas will vote for Bryan and be glad to do so but 1 assure vosi the crown of thorns which alien bunds have placed on the brow of populism will be worn by populists of

resolutions would be sent to thu platform anj then he agreinl to a substitute for Friday night Jenkins was told on the platform that Reedy had consented to the of his lutions This was said without any parent attempt at concealment plain of the table But they put down everything they hear so it didn't appear In any of the daily papers yesterday Mr Reedy told The that he never consented to a Friday and would not Saturday had he not been assured that he against the Interest of the populist party The effect of that assurance may be in his note Reedy In his represented the rank and file of Texas populist gates when they came to his note represents the and file of Texas populist delegates when they left ton Just how the fusion is to he brought about none but on the inside can tell and they won't The situation The republicans stand no show of carrying Texas for McKInley without populist and sound money the populists stand no chance 01 electing their state ticket money democrat and republican support the sound money democrats ver advocates of ver can bide for other the populists feel that they can get the sound menoy democratic vote for state officials without having to give in return stick trade but they are not about the republican have no such grounds for thinking they are it Then the populist leaders are working heart the election of the electoral Ergo each needs the other question Is can they deliver ine And tlie answer is they can deliver enough make their The republicans can be delivered they are well organized and un- their them to attain tne A great majority of the populists hate anything with the tag of democrat to It that's one reason Most of iham were before they were and they had some reason for quitting thV democrats which is as potent In keeping them voting for a as It was in making them quit the that's another reason They feel aggrieved at the state free silver democrats for stealing their der and at the national free silver crats for the same reason that's a third They Bryan and low democrats have not with dignity but more like they of only small consequence thus hurting their party constitutes a fourth reason And the fifth is by no means smaller than the They see no great chance to get any offices by voting for Bryan or even for Norton and they do see a chance which they regard in light of a certainty of getting the state offices by their votes for electors Perhaps this last reason Is a bit ture but it will be in full force and effect before the month js out That's the situation Only one thing can result from such a and that Is fusion kept down any resolutions for fear they would have the effect of ing the appointment of a age matters without instructions of the convention tying them down Jt was the which
