Hie convention held at ('luelimiill
lust woi-k l)y rci'iMontativeii of tho
ftirmors ulllanco and other industrial
organizations van unlnue lnltbiu)iiipol-
tion and la its manner of tninwuctintf
biminnha. I'redietlond wrro fively niuile
that there would lw a disruption and
lx)lt of a lui'fro iortion of tho convention
if tho formation of a third party wan
decided ution and tho earnest efforts of
many of tho brainest loxdeiu to prevent
tho third party plan and tho opposition
of almost tho entire south was ap-
parently millloient grounds to base such
st prediction ii)K)n; but so overwhelming
was the wmtiment in favor of the third
party movement as to completely
silence the opKibitlon in every quarter.
Tho decision to promulgate a platform
naming tho now party ana announc-
ing its principles was received
with tho wildest enthusiasm by the del-
egates and visiting brethren.
The convention was calli-d to order by
Capt. O. A. I'ower of Indiana who rend
tho ofllcial call of tho conference after
which Hon. Charles Cunningham of
Arkansas was introduced u tumio-
rary chairman O. J. Jones of Missouri
was chosen temporary secretury and
W. H. Robb of Iowa and (J. F. Wash-
burn of Massachusetts were made assis
tant secretaries. S. W. Chase of Kan-
sas was apMinted sergeant-at-arms
with E. E. Oakland of Ohio and Uwis
Itclzer of Nebraska as assistants. Tho
committees on rule and orders of busi-
ness credentials and resolutions were
appointed. Kansas was represented on
the committee on resolutions bv J. I.
Otis and Missouri by Ievorett Leonard.
The committed on organization retxjrt-
jd Senator 1 'offer as jiermanont chair-
man and tho senator assumed control
of the convention responding to a nat-
tering roivption in a few well-chosen
words. Tho lirst test as to a third
party organization occurred on tho
adoption of tho report on order of busi-
ness. The report of the committee
provided that each state should have
representation according to the num-
ber of its delegates in the convention.
As Ohio. Indiuna and Kansas sent H7H
of tho 1417 delegate of the convention
and as the delegations from those three
states were practically unanimously
in favor of the third party the adoption
of tho report settled that questlim ef-
fectually. Tho rcKirt was adopted amid
wild enthusiasm. Hon. K'niitius Don-
nelly of Wisconsin chairman of the
committee on resolutions reXirtotl the
following platform stating that tho
committee was a unit for the organiza-
tion of the third party.
