There ia one fundamental difference

and any other kind of political meeting
It I einrossed In one word "brother'.
Rather It Iseiweesod in the way the word
ia aald. You never bear the term in a re-
publican or democratic gathering except
Itia need la a Jocose or sarcastic woe.
Hut you meet a populist irom joxas,
California or Maine and be takes you by
tha hand with the word "brother", in a
tone that blatantly start Imagea of the
old family homestead, th flroeiao and

There were eome etorma in the Omaha
committee meeting. The apeecbee of
Henator Allen and Henator Hutlor wore
ti amnios of storm v oratory. Ho per
tiapa were the speeches of Col, Hurkett
and Gen. l'billlpa of Georgia. Yet it wan
evident tbeaoutbero populate came to
Omaha with tlie purpose 01 putting for
ward only their cooleat oratora to plead
tbeir cauae, Tba recollection of that
wild tumult in the great convention ball

Oa that occaalon the middle-of-the-road-era
simply wore themselves out in die
orderly Indignation. Tfaia time there
waa diciplin and organization,
It la perfectly plafn to every populiat
who attended the Omaha meeting that
when tba national convention tueete In
1900 tbert will be straight nopuliet
nomination for president and vice presi
dent and do fuaion, or there will be a
plit which will break the party iu two
about tbt middle. In the aouthera
and middle atatea the auti fuaion popn
liata will control tha organization. In
nearly all tha other atatea condition
will be mixed, but there will be
"straight" populiat electoral ticket a In
tba field in all the atatea. Home of ua
bava knows these thlnga longer than tba
Omaha meeting, There baa been a dis
position (aa 1 believe an unwiae one)
among the populiat prone of tba north
weat to auppreaa the facta about tha ait
nation, Just aa there baa been a dispo
ition among aome of the middle-of-the-road
preaa to mlarepreaent the populiat
of the northwest aa "democrata". It
aeema to me that the only way the union
deeired by all bouest. reformer can be
brought about ia by entire frankness.
There la no doubt that it baa been the
plan of leading populiat of the north
weat, acting in conjunction with leading
free ail ver democrat and republican, to
call the three national convention la
1000 at the eame time and pluce, to
nomluate the eame candidate for presl
dent n in 1800 and to nominate for
vice-preaideut, eome prominent populiat.
To tlii plan a large part of the popu
liat purty probably half at least have
given notice of undying hostility. They
avo secured the solemn pledge that the
populint National convention ahull be
called at leant a month before either old
party convention and the adoption ol
rule forbidding the ollicera of the na

fear that ao attempt was on foot to
trim ths Omaha platform down to the
issue of free silver. A delegation went
to Washington to see our congressmen
and senators. Tracy wa one of them.
He presented to Henator Allen a paper
pledging it signere to stand by the en

It was quiet at police headquarters

tat bolt upright on the railing around
the reporters' den, says the Kansas
City Tlmea. He was sound asleep with
bis keys thrown carelessly across bis
knees. Even the reporters bad lost
track of what was going on and were
dreaming of scoops and such fjtilngs,
when tbe door was thrust suddenly
open and a drunken man of some 20
summers entered. Tbe captain's feet
came down from the radiator with a
bang; the jailer's keys rattled, a sure
sign that be was no longer asleep; the
reporters unconsciously reached for
their pencils. "Captain, I've been held
up," tbe man said, In alcoholic tone.
"Who held you upf ' tbe captain asked,
as be reached for a pen, "A policeman.
sir; right here In front of the door.
He took all my money and everything
else bo could get bis hands on," Tbe
captain took tbe man's name end
called an officer, "Go with this fellow
and see if be tells the truth," the cap
tain said to tbe officer, "Oh. no. let's
don't do that; I ain't been held up; I'm
juat sleepy; that's all. I want some
place to sleep." Every one breathed
easier. The captain's feet went back
to the radiator; the jailer's keys found
their way back across his knees and
the reporters put back their pencils.
"That fellow can't much more than
hold himself up," the captain said, as
quiet resumed sway.
