a Conference on Trusts Produces SESSIONS SUHLT1TIEHGED Appolnlment of Committee on Resolu- ilons Provokes Debate THE 1IEETIKS HBE HELD Governor of Michigan Scores .Com bines Before a large Audience at the Night Session and Receives & Tremen- dons Ovation. Chicago September If Interest and a crowded hall put .tonight's cession of the conference on trusts sharply In contrast with the forenoon and at- ternoon gatherings. Central Music Hall was packed with an audience that represented nearly every class of people. Governor PIngree. of Michigan wan the .star attraction. The. governor was re ceived with applause so'fervent that it was several minutes before he could proceed with his address. He was obliged to rise several times after taking his seal and bow his acknowledgments before the audience would allow- the chair man to Introduce the next speaker. The house was divided against itself during the address of the next speaker. ex-Secretary of the Treasury Charles Foster. The audience finally became so demonstrative in interrupting the speaker with questions and remarks that a delegate asked the chair to clear the gal leries unless the interruptions ceased. The second day's session of the con ference opened with William Win Howe of New Orleans In the chair and'a falling off in the attendance of both dele gates and spectators. Chairman Howe proceeded at once to business by putting before the house a resolution Introduced 'by C. Farr of Missouri for the appointment of the im portant committee on resolutions. He. called for a committee of fifteen to b selected by Chairman Howe. To this committee all resolutions according to Mr. Farr. were to be referred without reading or debate. The motion Instantly .developed the undercurrent of strife be tween the factions for and against trusts which yesterday threatened the lion's harmony. Amendment Is Offered. An amendment was immediately proposed various speakers vigorously urging that the resolution be amended to al low the appointments .to the committee to be made by the delegates themselves one commUteeman from each state. The 'original motion was'not acted upon but the amendment in regard to the manner of appointment was carried by a standing vote of 99 to it Governor Atkinson of West 'Virginia rising from a far corner Declared that it Is unfair to bind the delegates by resolution. The debate waxed-warm and -delegates clamoring for-recognition rose in every part of the house. Ex-Governor. Luce of Michigan thundered that the reference to a committee without reading or'Mebate meant that many a well-meant effort would go'to sleep in the hands of .the committee and sleep the sleep of death. At thlssaliy there was a ripple of merriment" which ceased with the clamor of others who wished to be beard. The pro-trust people'and the anils were fearful It became evident' that one side or the other -would -secure .control and bind the/minority to something of which they disapproved. Edward Rosewater- editor of The Omaha.-Bee amid applause In- an Informal speech declared that the people of the United States had the courage of their convictions. .He averred that the'con ference should adopt such resolutions as it saw fit.
