Denver , July 29. 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

'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

Edgorton of Colorado. Milton Park of
Texas , J. H. Cnlderhend of Montana
and C. Q. Dofrunce of Nebraska , They

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

Eldorrulo and Placer counties , each
backed by numerous deputies nud as-
Mated by a company of mllltla. About

ly surrounded by the nhcrlffs of Sac
ramento and Placer counties , each
commanding a strong posse. All four
horses In the convicts' wajjon wore
shot and ono of the criminals wan
hilled outright. Then the outlaws
rnlfod a white flag and marched up
the road with the uuards and others
whom they had captured on each sitlo
of them. A general volley wan not or
dered , an It might have killed Beverai
Innocent men In this deliberate man
ner the second escape was miulu.

effect that eight convicts were soon
