People's party. The Farmer's Alliance may be considered its nucleus. It was organized at Cincinnati in May, 1891, and in 1892 it nominated for President Gen. James B. Weaver, of Iowa, and James G. Field, of Virginia, for Vice-President. In the ensuing election Weaver received 22 electoral votes (in the West), and 1,041,028 popular votes. Several Senators and Representatives in the later Congresses have been Populists. In the Presidential election of 1896 the People's party combined with the Democratic party in nominating William J. Bryan for President, but nominated Thomas E. Watson for Vice-President. See political parties in the United States; Presidential elections. The Hon. W. A. Peffer, late United States Senator for Kansas, one of the leaders of the People's party, wrote as follows during the campaign of 1900: That the People's party is passing must be evident to all observers. Why it is going, and where, are obviously questions of present public concern.
