The two-thirds rule does not prevail in the people's party conventions. A majority carries, Convention I<at* In Gathering. The same uncertainty and confusion prevailed about the hour of the meeting of the people's party (populist) convention, as about the various matters connected with it. Ten o'clock. 11 and noon had been publicly given out as the hour, with more or less apparent authority. At the earliest of these points Q* time, there were not 50 delegates in trie convention hall, and only a few solitary figures were t/o be seen, scattered here and there throughout the spaciojti.s galleries. An hour later there haviKbeen accessions that a.bout doubled the number of people en the floor aid in the galleries. The absence.'of brass bands as an almost necessary adjunct to all political gather hi gsN lias been particularly noticeable in connection with the populists. There ;was an exception made Wednesday, however, a band being located in the gallery back of the chairman's stand, yhich filled up the locg waiting time, '^A . . . ' IfTDUtiug Donnelly on Hand.

[Chcers.J l B natiu» Donnelly's Kesiioiwc. Hon. Ignatius Donnelly, of !lin:i'e- sota, rc.sponded to Uov- Stone's addi-cj*- of welcome. He spolte of the different cities that haa desired the convention, mentioning Clil- ra" K o as that city of magnificent growth, which I-- a miracle of our American civ- iii-ation But St. I^ouls was selected because it was pre-eminently the heart and i-entor of the American' continent, tha center of the Mississippi va!!ey, the Brand, est body of aRricultural =nd fertile land on Die face of the earth. The valley ot the Nile recognized once as the granary ot the world, was only nine miles wide. The valley of the Mississippi practically reached from the Rocky mountains to the Alleghenles. The selection of the center of this great valley for the convention of the people'* party was particularly appropriate, because this movement was an outgrowth .from the agricultural and laboring population of this country. It bc- can at a million firesides where the farmer in the silence of his home studied out for himself the causes of the aflllctions ha endured, and united to find a remedy. Ou« city friends, he'continued, for a time re- parded it as a movement hostile to them- EClves. Mr. Donnelly closed by making an eloquent appeal for unity.

Lift up your hearts to the majesty and the dignity of the duties laid upon your shoulders. The men of Valley Forge, when they cracked the snow with their bleedinc feet, had not a more sublime and tremendous duty put upon them than wa have to-day. There Is no man, however popular or great, whoso Interests are worth a scintilla against this great party. [Cheers.] 'We must not deacrt it. We must not destroy It. [Applause.] The chairman asked such members of the executive committee as were in the body of the hall to step up to tha platform. Among- those ivhp thus advanced was Mrs. Ellen Lease, who was •warmly cheered. Butler Made Temporary chairman. Cha-iiiaan Ta.ubencck introduced aa temporary chairman of the convention Senator Marion Butler, of North Carolina, saying that he had been chosen by acclamation and without a dissenting- voice, in a committee of 40 members, and expressing the belief that when the convention adjourned it would have accomplished its worlc just ;us unanimously. [Cheers'.] Senator Butler was received with thre« cheers, which he characterized as u. cyclone of patriotism," All history rtaught, h" said, all history showed that there always came crises In the affairs ot mm when humanity was raised to a higher level, accordingly as the men on whoso shoulders the rcsponfsUiltty rested wero able to meet the crisis with wisdom and patriotism.

And he was answered by one of tho California delegates, Mr. Alfred Oag- eetf "Nominate a straight populist candidate on a populist platform, without reference to what the democratic conver-iioa has done."
