[ Loud cheers. |
'Moses an mi i\nmple. :
Uolocuto Thomas B. Cater of California
curliestly supported the resolution us pio-
senlod. The speaker onlurcil upon what bo
described ns the seientllic basu of boycott ,
and pointed to tbo action ol iMosos when the
children of Iiraol weru oppressed , to show
its ancient character. "Boycotting is not
human but divine , " lie further wont on ,
nnd wound up amidst enthusiastic cheers
that capital is thi > oppressor an J had to bo
fought with its own weapons.
J ho mulumca showed many indications of
weariness by a departure fiom the regular
work of tbc convention and afforded but
bcant courtesy to the Tennessee delecuto
who followed ! The speaker asuuil the us-
Bi'inblv , amid consldurablo eonfuiion , not to
tntto upon Itself quesUotib with which it bud
nothing to do.
"Cyi-lono" Unvls of Texas wns for the boy
cott ll believed in that principle of nature
which btnus every living being lo Its friund ,
and tt.o enemies of labor are not our friends ,
llo stood by the record and the truth.
There is no such thing na ooycott. It only
consists in lolling your enemies alone and
staylnir with jour friends. lie would lot
his enemies supromclv nlono. You might
call that , a bovcott if you choose ,
but ho wan'ed to Ucop up the system.
Ho wnntet to boycott the system of
plutocracy In the country and in the gilded
palace ? ol out-congressional ha'lls. llo wanted
lo boycott the plutocratic senators who
spent about W.UUO a year of the people's
nionoy for u b.irbor shop , pomade , lavender
anu rbsowaler. He wanted this boycott kept
up till every vestleo of this is gone and the
pconlo iignln have their rights.
The debute was laken up by other speak
ers. A Texas dologalo declared that boy-
colling wns alienaling Irom llic ICnighls of
Labor , of which ho ( the delegate ) wns a
member , the sympathy of the merchants who
s.vinpntbi7cd with ninny of the progressive
views of the independent party. Ho ven
tured lo predict Unit there was ono business
that would ncvor bo boycotted tbo liquor

Another speaker echoed the sentiments of

opinion that the csolullon deserved lo bo car-
iKimlllM Donnelly I'mori * licollln > ; .
Then came Iho Important speech of Ibo
nlghl on the question , ono by Ignatius Don
nelly. The rusolulloii , he declared , was in
keeping with tlio spirit of the prnumblo to
tbo platform adopted with so much unanim
ity earlier in the day. "Tho Hocliostrtr
clothini ; manufacturers have .said lo 10,000 of
their workmen nnd workwomen that they
could not gain a moans of livelihood without
yielding Ihoirrlghls as American citizens , "
Mr. Donnelly said.'On this Ihero can oo
no compromise. "
At this declaration the hall ranir with
cheors.rcnowcd again und again , the voice of
( ienenil Master Workman 1'owderly of the
Knights of Labor making itself itNUnctabovo
the ceneral din.
"This vast and gigantic movement should
extend its powerful arm to tlio uld of Ibo op
pressed and downtrodden. If tlio resolution
wore simply to oxpi-0-.b the projucilcn of a

movement to declare that the American olti-
ten. however immbtu , rxintns nil ilia ilgliis

for Iho presentation of candidates for the

scarcely shouted by the sccretarr when J , C.

placed In nomination u man , "tbo mention of

The place of Colorado was yielded to
Colonel S. F. Norton of Illinois , who placed
.Senator Kylu ot South Dakota in nomina
tion. Joloncl Norton began by calling atten
tion to Postmaster General Wanamakor's
refusal to permit transmission through thu
malls to one of the now reform books. His
blood could not have been more completely
frozen if bo hnd seen thrust Into every win
dow ot the building a , loaded cannon with a
uniformed government minion behind it. If
that little book could not go through the
malls there are n thousand reform papers
that could not go through the malls and
tnoir platform could not co through. The
man ho should name hud already won bis
spurs in the brainiest und shrewdest as
sembly In thu United States. The
man bo should name stood there
as a giant. Ono part of his
strong ih consisted in the fact tbat bo is a
member of no faction. In the llftecn or
twenty years' light they had boon engaged In
many wounds had boon received , and unfor
tunately soma of these scars had bean In-
lllclsd by their comrades , but there wns no
man his candidate had woundod. It would
give him greater personal pleasure to present
the name of some member of the old guard ,
but he said "Let the old guard hold tno fort
ami lot the now cuard carry tbo banner. "
His candidate's brain was not measured by
the girth of hi.s waist. [ Laughter. ) Ho was
n man so great that no jig wblto hat of nn
ancestor could Illdo him from the puhllo
guzo. Ho pledged support to whoever
Iho candidate might be , for no man
could bo so great as the platform of princi
ples of the party. HU candidate was a
broad and liberal 'minded man who gave to
every ono tbo right to speak and write for
himself and follow the dictates of his own
conscience In all things. Thu now par.y
should take up the Calllornia pioneer Hag ,
with the rattlesnake and the motto , "Don't
Tread on Me , " und nny to I'inkorton detect
ives and sill : .stockinged militia , to caltlo
kings , to corporations "Don't tread on mo. "
It was not impossible or Improbable that
they might place the man no would name In
the whlto bouse that grand , mugnillcont
man , Jamus H. Kyle of South Dakota.

Ivv-Nenator Van Wye Is Named.
Stephen H. Basher of , Illinois , pastor of
the Progressive church , said thai as armies
follow intrepid leaders lo conquest nnd vic
tory , so should political parties crown with
honor the genius nnd leadership which gave
It birth. The people's party was founded on
principles not men , and It demanded as its
loader its biggest , brainiest and squares !
man In the party fold. The party should
Kbop in the middle of the road and cliooao a
man who was old enough in the party to
know where the middle of the road is. That
man was Senator Van Wyck of Nobrasifii.
The mention of Van Wyck's numo aroused
some of Iho liveliest cheering of tbo conven
John H. Borgorman of Indiana , n one-
legged soldier , seconded the nomination c/f
General Jamas B. Weaver.
Prof. C. Vincent of tbc Nonconformist of
Indiana said that although Indiana was
divided now , she would not bo In November.
Ho had nothing to say against Weaver , but
it seemed to him that they must not now
blood Into the movement at Iho head of the
ticket anu talco a man loss identitled with
the curses showered on the old guard. Ho
seconded Kyle's nomination , and another In
diana delegate jumped to nls foot , and said
one-half the delegation was for Van Wyck.'M Talk lor UYuvur.
Tbo principal speech for General Weaver
was made by Morris L. Wheat of Town ,
Weaver's own state. Mr. Wheat , said :
Mr. Chairman : No greater responsibility
or higher duty over rested upon n human
assembly than upon tbo ouu here convened.
Wo are lo nominate men who will ooar our
banner in this lirst organized lUht against
the unscrupulous out thoroughly disciplined
hosts of monopoly.
Htnifglos for equal rights and opportuni
ties are as old as Humanity and dot tbo pages
of hlstoiy with alternate success und failure ,
but among them alt none call for meru cour-
uu'n , dovoled patriotism und skillful leader
ship than tlio ono about , to commence be
tween the conscienceless hordesof plutocracy
cud the army of vutors who will taithfully
tollow the banner of tlio pcoptu's party to
the ballot-box nsxt Novo'mbcr. Tlio com
mon people of this country huvo nt lost re
solved to take the reins of iho irovornmoni
which their forefathers created mid which
they huvo maintained Into their own hands.
Wo nro to place In nomination a candidate
for the presidency , not 11 pliant hireling
of Wall street , but ono who
springs from the croat plain people of ibo
country ; one In thorough sympathy with
their wants ; ono who touches elbows with
the teller of tbo shop and the tiller of Urn
Hold. The loaders of Iho old party combine-
lions take tbnlr coriltlcaloi of leadership
from u plutocracy mightier than that which
sent Homo lo her grave and holds Europe lu
Its urasp todav , a plutocracy moro tlomlish
than ever uflllctcd a nation. It touched
tbo brain of tbo Minneapolis and Chicago
cage conventions. The result everybody
knows , or ought to know , Is the choice ol
men who had been previously clio-en bv the
money power of thn country. Thev stand
upon platforms that promise nothing to the
grout army of wealth producers. Ho who
votes for either throws his vole away and
tiacrilicos upon Ibe buso altar of prejudice
the dearest rights of liberty , equality and
It Is not so hero. This movement oriel-
ntlcu with the common people ; with
thorn It must remain It wo would preserve -
servo pure and inviolate our rights ,
the bullot-bo < c und legislation. Now ,
und hero , lu ibU great conflict with
plutocracy , are wo to cheese u loader. Ho
must bo a man who will guide us "in the mid
dle of tbo road , " one who will carry our
banner boldly and skillfully in tho' fore
front of buttle , ono who has taught , and
will teach , that "Kqual rights to Ml and
spoi'lul privileges lo none , " and that "an
injury to ono U ihu concern of all'1 Is ibo only
enduring republican form of government.
Wo must trot choojo one who ucrees with us
only In part , neither must HO bnw down to
tLo old party theory ol nominating auv 0:10 :
who wo think will command Iho most voles
regardless of whether bo Is in hearty accord
with our onllro platform.
It would bo a criminal bluudor tbat might

\\'o \ have n man who pre-eminently lilts'tbo

when It was worth nlmoil a man's Illo'to 01-

In nominating him wo shall mnko no mis

\\iiiited to Limit Speech Milking.
The speeches were cottlng wearljomo to
the hot , tired delegates and bosldos , for sen
timental reasons , it was desired to make tbo
nomination before the Fourth had oxpirod. It
was moveu to limit speeches to three minutes
und this stirred up Mr. Bird , n ujgro
delegate from Chicago , who protested against
giving one side n fair show nnd than giving
the other side the buck and gag law. Ho
wanted to speak. A compromise was fixed
up providing that no speeches with reference
to old candidates should bo made , but that
nominating and seconding addresses for now
candidates would bo permitted and In tbls
form tlio motion to limit dobalo was declared
1'alco nt Vlrglnln.
Delegate tigorv Brown of Massachusetts
nominated Mr. Munn Paigoof Virginia , who ,
besnld , was president of n state nllianco and
was , therefore , capable of tilling the position
of the presiuent of the United States.
If thi ) honso of representatives
should bo called upon to elect n president ,
the local pride of the south would bo a very
great factor in shuttering the democratic
column that otherwise will elect the man
named by ono of the old parties. No man
would uotter represent tbo south than Mann
Dolocato Hsu of Minnesota rose to pay a
tribute to Ignatius Donnelly and to toll of bis
unscltishnoss in refusing the offer of the
stale by which bo was loved , to put him tn

which Minnesota holds her most honored

Notwithstanding tbo rule adopted against
seconding speeches for candidates who bad
already been named and seconded , the flood
could not bo shut off. A withdrawal of ono
candidate , Van Wyck of Nebraska , varied
the proceedings.
Vandurvoort Withdraw * V n Wjrak.
Mr. Paul Vunrtorvoort , In a forcible nnd
eloquent speech , staled tbat Nebraska had
no candidate to offordetormlnlnir to glvo her
votes In November to the man chosen by tbo
convention. Incidentally ho alluded
to Van Wyck and asserted that Nebraska
would have given him Its hor.rty support had
ho allowed his name to go Before the conven
tion. Slnco bo would not consent , the people
of Nebraska would sea that ho was selected
for governor nt tbo next state olertlon.
At midnight tbo roll of stales for nominat
ing and seconding speeches was still In pro
gress , with Tennessee Iho lalest state callou.
Joseph Wali-op , Portland , Oro. , seconded
the nomination of Weaver.
At this Juncture Indiana , which bad asked
to be passed on the first call , mudo a request
to bo heard by thu chairman of her delega
tion. Ho staled that Indiana had listened to
nil that had boon said by her sister stales In
order to ascertain the choice of all the great
states ot the Union. Tbls sbolco bad seemed
to bo for General Weaver of Iowa , and In
diana announced that the solid vole of the
Hooslur stuio would bo cast for the Iowa
candidate. [ Prolonged appuuso. ]
The Virginia delegation also withdraw the
names of its sons and declared unanimously
In favor of General Weaver.
the two old parties named their president
through the aid of English capital , supported
tbo name of Weaver as a lilting ropiesanta-
tivo of the people's party.
West Virginia announced It would cast a
solid vole for Weaver , believing him to bo
tbo choice of the convontlon.
Took Tliolr CUD from Indiana.
The announcement from Indiana was the
euo for other states und there was quicidy a
landslide and a rush to got into tbo Weaver
band wagon.
New York bad boon passed and Farmer
Daan now appeared on the stage ana said
that the Now York delegates agreed with
New England to remain neutral and allow
tbo south and vest lo select the candidate
und they would vote for the man selected.
Now York had Raid If you want that Judge
of such renown ( Urosbam ) and ho will stona
on tbo platform It would vote for him. Now
Now York hoped Weaver's nomination
would bo made unanlmoui. It would vote
solid for Weaver.
Mississippi swung solid Into the Weaver
line , through an announcement from ono of
her delegates. All bar raon were on their
fcot to make similar announcement , but
were cut short by u protest from Schilling
that It was not fair to permit these announce
ments nnd by allowing states to bo called
after ihuy bad boon recognized , to stnmpada
thu convention.
U. C. Post , chairman of the Georgia dele
gation , got nn opportunity , however , to snv
that Georgia , which bad been ono of the
strongest , states opposed to Weaver , would
withdraw her support of Kyle , and with the
consent of iho convention make Weaver's

Al this Juncture the question of amending

out the provision rogardingsccona choice was
sprung in another torm.
Vaudcrvoorl of Nebraska opposed the pro
vision for tbo retirement of candidates with
only u small following. "Wo believe , " salil
ho , "that any man that has a eliolco should
bo permitted to exorcise thnr choice without
being muz7lod and that a man can stay In
aud bo voted on even if ho has only ono vote
until the crack of doom. ' Ho proposed nn
amendment striking out the clause of the
rules providing that after iho second ballot
nil candidates except the two leaders shall
bo retired and inserting a provision that
when balloting begins candidates shall bo
voted for until there Is n choice. This
amendment prevailed by a largo majority so
that tbo rules ns to balloting are in accord-
nnco with the customary rules In national
conventions on this matter.
The rule ns 11 n ally adopted is as follows :
In balloting for candidates the following or
der fchall bo observed Iho secretary shall
call the roll of iho states nnd the chairman
shall announce the vote as cast. Each state
shall appoint its own tellers , collect and
count its own ballots und its chairman shnll

In tlio course of an interview in the
Chicago Tribune the ether day Colonel
Ingorboll said :
"I know of nothing that has glvon
moro comfort to the human race after
all than tobacco , it is a companion. I
do not see how anybody can wait for a
train without cigars. Tobacco is a great
consolation to uxllos , to prisoners , to
men who work in mines , to choppers In
thi ) forest , to sallori and to all people
who are alono. I know of nothing that
so consoles the mind of man IIH tobacuo.
Whenever wo go in barbarian countries
Central Africa or the far olT islands
of the 1'nclflu the natives immediately
got in love with tobacco. They will
work for it ; they will hunt elephants'
tusks if you will only pay thorn in to
bacco. So I have made up my mind
that there is something in the nature of
man that asks for this divine and con *
soling weed. "
