Replies to Charges of New York
World Regarding that Nebraska
Campaign Fund.
Lincoln—W. J. Bryan has reiter
ated his statement of his intention to
make good the $.0,000 said to have
been contributed to the Nebraska
campaign by Thomas Ryan of New
York, if the story published in the
New York World can be proven. His
statement given out tonight is as fol
lows :
‘‘I have just read the World's story
1. That my brother-in-law, Mr.
Allen, chairman of the democratic
state committee, had a conference
with Mr. Sheehan in 1904 in regard
to campaign funds.
2. That Mr. Sheehan, as Mr. Ryan's
attorney, secured from Mr. Ryan
$20,000 for the Nebraska campaign.
3. That Mr. Ryan made the contri
bution to secure my “open and un
qualified support of Judge Parker.”
4. That “to disguise the source of
the contribution, Mr. Ryan gave the
check to Mr. Sheehan, and that Mr.
Sheehan gave his checks to Mr. Al
“Chairman Allen and Mr. Dahlman,
the Nebreska member of the national
democratic committee, have already
denied the World's charges and stated
that the only money received came
from the national committee, but I
desire to add the following state
"Mr. Allen says that he never saw
either Mr. Sheehan or Mr. Ryan, and
1 nave no reason to doubt his word.
If Mr. Ryan contributed to the Ne
braska campaign it was not with my
knowledge or consent. While I had
j but a remote personal interest in the
: Nebraska campaign that year. I am in
i terested in Nebraska politics and am
i also interested in national -politics,
and I am not willing to be. in the
i slightest degree, obligated to any
i favor-seeking corporation. If. there
fore, the World will secure from
j either Mr. Sheehan or Mr. Ryan a
! statement, or prove in any oth * way
j that Mr. Ryan gave to Mr. Sheehan,
to any one else, or to the national
committee any sum whatever with
the understanding that the sum would
be used in the Nebraska campaign. I
shall see that the amount is returned
to Mr. Ryan.
“As to the charge that my support
of Judge Parker was purchased, I
need only say that 1 announced my
support of Judge Parker immediately
after the St. Louis convention and
that that support was open and un
qualified from the convention until
the polls closed. I had opposed his
nomination, but he had no more loyal
supporter during the campaign. I
was in correspondence with him, and
both on the stump and with my pen
rendered him all the assistance I
could. While the World was selling
its columns to the republican commit
tee to be use in caricaturing Judge
Parker, my paper was urging his elec
Returns Are Far From Complete. But
Enough Known to Determine the
Successful Men.
Des Moines—Allison has been nom
inated by at least 7.000 majority.
This is generally conceded. Returns
are not all in and the headquarters
of the various candidates have been
closed. The only returns being re
ceived are those by newspapers.
Forty-nine counties scattered over the
state give Allison a majority of 9,000.
The other counties are not going to
reduce this materially and may raise
it some. Forty-seven counties give
Carroll 37.487 and Garst 25,841. Ham
ilton in twenty-four counties got 4,717.
Carroll will probably have a majority
ot 25,000 over Garst. Speaker Clarke
is in all probability nominated for
lieutenant governor and Bleaklev
for state auditor. It is believed that
not half of the republican vote for
Roosevelt was cast at the primary
If Judge Prouty is nominated for
congress in the Seventh district it is
by such a narrow margin that only
the full complete returns will deter
mine the matter. Wednesday night
he had a majority of six over Con
gressman Huli. with some precincts
to report yet.
In the Tenth district Congressman
Woods, chairman of the state central
committee, was chosen over J. P.
Conner, present incumbent. Elbert
H. Hubbard was renominated for con
gress in tlte Eleventh district.
The only democratic contest was
in the Second district, where Mark
Walsh of Clinton won over J. E. De
Armand of Davenport, he carrying
Scott county against his opponent.
The congressional nominees nanied
in the primaries are: First district,
C. A. Kennedy (rep.i, George S. Tra

Chicago.—Representatives of tha
“allies have recalled their statement
that the\ will bolt the republican na

southern states is concerned. There
is evidence that the announcement

After numerous conferences the fol- i
lowing, which was headed, “Statement
from the allies,” was issued:
“Upon the authority of the repres- ■
entatives of all presidential candidates !
other than Secretary of War Taft it j
was announced today that they would |
continue to present their side of the ;
contested delegate cases to the nation
al committee. The decision of the na
tional committee will not be taken as
final by the candidates known as the
‘allies,’ but an appeal will be taken in
cases where it is believed injustice
has been done, first to the committee
on credentials and later to the conven
tion itself.
“The determination of the repres
entatives of the 'allies’ to continue the
presentation of the contests to the na
tional committee is not to be taken as
an indication that they approve of the
manner in which these contests have
been decided. But in order to be in
the position to present all of the cases
in proper form to the committee on
credentials it is deemed advisable to
comply with the form of procedure
laid down by the national committee.
"It is the firm determination of the
representatives of the 'allies' to first
give the national committee an op
portunity to consider all the contents
on their merits.”
