That his remarks were In sympathy with the fecling-3 of n. larg-e part of the audience was'shown by the frequent applause which punctuated his speech. He maintained that it was perfectly seemly to overrule the rational committee, .and held that If the committee were properly constituted It would show a majorlty.the other way.

Col, Fellows said he had yet to hear any argument why all precedents of the party ihould be trampled upon; He warned th« convention that a grave crisis confronted tho party, and urged.th* majority to pause before overthrowing the choice ot the national committee. When Col. Fellows finished, there were crio's of "vote, vote." B. W. Marsden, of Louisiana, was recogniied. He said: "It lif;not that we love David B. Hill less, but that we love democracy more." Mr. Marsden stirred up a storm of cheers and hisses by accusing the majority of attempting to.trample on the majority. There wero shouts of Hill, THlman and much disorder.
