The third party men claim they
have gained ground every hour,
but the speech of Gen. Stackhouse
to-day may have produced a check.
He was cheered only at the points
where the independent movement
was suggested. There were Wry
faces and no applause when he
referred to the danger of getting
into a miscellaneous party and
staking the exiBtence of the alli-
ance upon success in suoh a move-
There was a meeting at the city
hall this evening qf alliance mem-
bers and the out siders, who favor
the immediate formation of a third
party, which was induced by the

At the morning session which
was a regular alliance meeting,

After stating it waB the proud-
est moment of his life to meet the
Texas Alliance after two years of
slander and calumny and receive
such a greeting as that to-day, he
proceeded to read his personal ex-
planation in a lengthy address full
of patioitism to the cause aud a
sense of duty to his honorable po-
sition after which he in turn length-
ly dwelt >npon the ‘‘Sub-treasury
Plan and Political bearings.”
At the close of Dr. Macune’s
speech the convention adjourned
until 2 p. m.
At the afternoon session Mr. R.
M. Humphreys of Houston presid-
ed. Mr. M. W. Wilkins, associ-
ate editor of the American Non-
conformist of Winfield, Kan., was
the first speaker. He announced
no subject, but went at the gener-
al sitnauou, with sprightly orato-
ry preserved throughout.
Mr. Henry Vincent, the editor
of the Non-Conformist, followed
his associate editor, remarking
the snb-treasnry scheme,
to government ownership of
roads. There were no votes
against it, and one-third of those
present refused to vote at all.
Another resolution proposed in
secret session indoroing the ac-
tion of Taubeneck, alliance mem-
ber of the Illinois legislature, who
had supported Streeter so long
and had finally voted for Palmer,
Was fiercely opposed on the sing-
lar ground it committed the Alli-
ance to the third party. It was
defeated by a vote of 81 to 82.
A resolution was adopted ask-
ing for the resignation of Hall, a
member of the committee that in-
vestigated charges against Macune
and others concerning the election
of the Senator in- Georgia. Hall
has been throwing mud at Macune,

The proposition n. defeated °“p “ h“r“0^ w“th6(
by a vote of 83 to 8* aboviog - fc
that the independent element is
growing. The proposition, it is
nnderstood, was not put direct,
but it indirectly tested the senti-
ment of those voting. On a di-
rect issue whether the alliance
should organize an independent
party, it is claimed the vote would
not have been so close. A num-
ber did not vote.
GEN. STACKHOUSE’S ADDRESS.
There were more present at the
morning session than ever and it
is estimated that 400 alliance men
are in attendance. At 10 a. in. the
open session began.
Gen. Stackeouse of South Caro-
lina was introduced, and after pre-
liminary remarks delivered a sen-
sible and well formed address
which was ft length ong.
