RAD GAL SOCIALISTS
EJECTED FROM HALL
Right Wing Sets Policemen on
John Reed's Faction.
CHICAGO CONVENTION SPLIT
Formation of Xew Branch of Party
Threatened by Some of
Those Excluded.
CHICAGO, Aug. SO. Strife which
presaged a epllt developed In the ranks
of the socialist party before Adolph
Germer, national secretary, was able
to call to order the opening session of
the national convention here today.
Delegates of the so-called left wing
of the party were forcibly put out of
the hall by policemen because Secre
tary Germer said they were trying to
pack the convention by seating dele
gates who had no credentials.
A fist fight between two delegates
threatened for a time to become a gen
eral affair, b it the police were able to
stop it before more of the left wing
delegates could take part.
Immediately ' after their expulsion
from the hall tho left wing supporters,
led by John Reed of New York, held
a meeting to decide on a course of ac
tion. Reporters were not allowed in
this meeting or in the main convention.
where the process of seating delegates
went on.
Reed Bars Reporters-
'We are reactionary socialists, and
we don't want to talk to any reporters
or members of the capitalistic press,"
Reed declared before he closed the
doors of the left wing Caucus.
Members of the left wing who did
not heed the advice of Mr. Reed said
If they were not recognised in the con
vention they would organise a new
branch of tbe party.
Although many delegates were not
clear as to the difference between the
eft and right wings of the party, the
principal differences appeared to be
that the left wing men want practical
ly a proletariat dictatorship, and some
even go so far as to suggest an aboli
tion of political action. It was ex
plained that the breach In the party
has been widening for some time and
the trouble today was the result of this
schism. Some said the left wing side
wanted to adopt a program modeled
after the Russian socialists.
Candidates Not to Be Named.
The convention is scheduled to last
week.
Secretary Germer said a national
platform would be adopted but that
probably no presidential candidates
would bo named. Approximately 250
delegates were present at the opening
session today, and It was claimed they
represented a majority of states.
when the delegates were admitted
to the convention hall their credentials
were examined, and all those carrying
white cards were admitted. Two po
licemen aided the doorkeeper.
