May 14, -896. THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT. THE SI. JOE CONVENTION BEPUBLICAN FACTIONS FIGHT FROM THE VERY START. FILLEY IN EASY CONTROL. The Opening of the Convention Delayed by a Bitter Dispute M to the Control of the Hall Thousands Kept Standing In m Jam for Three Honrs Anti-Fllleyltee Howled Down. St. Joseph, Mo., May 13. At mid night last night Major Warner and ChauDcey L Filley had a long confer ence over the plans for the Repnblican State convention to-day. Each talked in a friendly way, and it was hoped that a compromise could be reached. Later each consulted with his friends and at 1 o'clock it was declared that the deal was off. Filley was willing to make the slate himself, Niedring haus, Both well and Warner, or Bit tinger in place of Both well but Kerens he would not agree to. He was backed by a delegation from St. Louis bitterly opposed to Kerens. Warner and Bit tinger refused to drop Kerens after having gone into a fight with mm. Conseqently this morning neither side expected anything but a fight. When the delegates prepared to go to the hall this morning, it was found that Major Bittinger and the lotal ex ecutive committee had taken upon themselves to issue all tickets of ad mission. This added to the hard feel ings, especially on the part of the Filleyites, who charged that the local - committee was prepared to admit the Kerens men and refuse admission to the St Louis Filleyites; in fact, that Bittinger was going to keep out every one he did not want admitted. A squad of police stood outside the con vention hall to keep the crowd back. At 9 o'clock there were 1,500 people in front of the buildincr. Filley hastily called a meeting of the State committee for 9:30 o'clock. He had 1,500 tickets circulating among his friends, and the delegates and the opposition had as many more. Then he sent John Armstrong, the ser-geant-at-arms chosen by the State committee, to take possession of the halL Lester M. Crawford, the pro prietor of the opera house, refused to give him the keys, saying that he would give them to no one except Bittinger. Shortly before 1 1 o'clock Bittinger went before the State committee. The members were angry and Zeigenheira of St. Louis charged the local commit tee with unfairness and with giving tickets to its friends instead of dele gates. Bittinger replied: "You don't know what, you are talKing about." He said the committee had tickets for the State committee and would gladly give them to the committeemen when the committee was ready for them. He then gave the members from the different districts each a proportionate share of the tickets. He plainly charged that the local Filley men had printed and distributed thousands of tickets to the Filley workers, the sole purpose being to pack the convention. The committee remained in session after Bittinger left for a long time. Chairman Filley of the state com mittee, B. F. Russell, Albert Griffin, the temporary secretary, and Con gressman Bartholdt, the temporary chairman selected by the state com mittee, were admitted to the hall at 12:18 o'clock through a side door. They took seats on the platform and began to arrange tables. The police outside were reinforced and five min utes later the front door was opened and the sergeant-at-arms began to admit delegates. The Kerens tickets were white and those of the central committee blue. The central com mittee's order to its sergeant-at-arms was to admit, first, only those who had 'badges prepared by Bittinger's committee, but distributed by the state committee. Nathan Frank and Kerens sent a bunch of fifty tickets to their supporters outside. Everybody with a delegate's badge or a ticket was admitted. Most of the delegates had been standing for three hours in the jam against the theater doors. THE CONVENTION OPENED AT LAST. It was 1:05 o'clock before the crowd was seated and Chairman Fflley of the State committee rose to call the meet ing to order. His friends cheered wildly for a minute or more. The Filley delegates from St. Louis were seated as regulars in the body of the hall. The Kerens delegates, who had tickets, got seats in the gallery. Filley urged the Republicans to work for oiganization. He said that McKinley would bo nominated in June and elected in November; that Mis souri would elect a Republican gover nor, a Republican legislature and a Republican electoral vote. Filley then mtroduce'd Congressman Richard Bartholdt, the temporary chairman, who counseled harmony of action. George A. Neal of Kansas City offered a resolution providing that all resolutions should be sent to the com mittee on resolutions. It was carried and the convention proceeded to se lect committees by districts. While the secretary was calling the roll of districts, a Filley man an swered for the Eleventh district Nathan Frank, leader of the Kerens faction, said that that district was in contest and undertook to read a list for his delegation, but was howled down and the chair ruled him out of order on an appeal raised by Spencer of St Louis. James Moran of Buchanan county said that he ob jected to a man whose seat was con tested sitting on his own case. He was silenced and the call by districts proceeded. Moran renewed his objections, but was howled down. Another delegate who tried - to make a similar protest was silenced on a point of order, and the convention took a recess unWl 3 o'clock. The votes by which Nathan Frank was silenced and Chairman Bartholdt sustained in bis rulings and the sub sequent vote to adjourn while Keren's friends were trying to get the floor showed that FilUy was stronger than the opposition in his effort to seat his St Louis delegates, at least so long as the St Louis delation voted on its own right to tit in the convention. The fact that the St. Louis delegation was allowed to vote on all questions in the temporary organization appar ently insured their being ultimately seated in the permanent organiza tion. Bartholdt's rulings are condemned as arbitrary. THEY CO FREE. Kauai City Ballot Box Staffers Saved by the Supreme Court. Kansas Citt, Mo., May 13. By a decision handed down by Judge Bur gess in the Supreme court at Jefferson City this morning the indictments against John May, Charles S. Owsley, John Moran, H. G. Bristow, R. L, Krueger, O. W.

Says He Is Neither Great, Well-Balanoed, Educated Nor Politically Astute. New Yobs, May 13. Ex-Senator Piatt issued a formal statement yes terday in regard to the presidential situation, in which the nomination of Major McKinley is vigorously op posed: "My opposition to Governor Mo Klntey," Mr. Piatt says, "proceeds almost entirely from my belief that he will get the Republican party into turmoil and trouble. He is not a well-balanced man of affairs, as Gov ernor Morton is. He is not a great man, as Mr. Reed is. He is not a trained and educated public man, as Senator Allison is. He is not an as tute political leader, as Senator Quay is. He is simply a clever gentleman, much too amiable and much too im pressionable to be safely intrusted with great executive office, whose quest for honor happens to have the accidental advantage of the assocla toin of his name with the last Repub lican protective tariff. "When the delegates at St Louis come to consider these matters their choice for President will not be Wil liam McKinley of Ohio. They are not troinsr to determine the destiny of their party in any 'hurrah, boys,' spirit Mr. McKinley is still many votes short of a nomination, and when the delegates get together and com pare notes they will realize that their candidate should be a wise, temper ate, conservative, educated states man, with definite policies, fixed opin ions and a safe record."
