Tho Bryan democratic club of
Wellston, Ohio, was organized March
4 with a membership of fifty, which
it is expected will soon reach 300.
The following offlcers were elected:
President, B. B. Gillingham; vice
president, W. B. Braley; secretary,
W. J. Huske; treasurer, C. D. Mas
sie. The club adopted resolutions
favoring the nomination of Mr. Bry
an for tho presidency and pledged its
members to see that none but loyal
democrats, in favor of Mr. Bryan
and tho principles he advocates, were
sent to the various conventions.
A Bryan club was organized at
Imperial, Nob., and the following of
ficers were elected: Fred HofCmeis
ter, president; O. P. Shallenborger,
treasurer; H. S. Fliesbach, secretary.
Tho officers were instructed to ap
point a committeeman in each pre
cinct. Quite a noticeable feature was
the presence of a number of prom
inent republicans. A great amount
of applause was caused when 0. P.
Shallenberger, president of the Farm
ers & Merchants Bank, said that
"everybody in the United States was
for Bryan except Harriman and
Rockefeller." The object of the or
ganization is clearly stated in the
by-laws adopted as follows: "The
object of this organization shall be
to advance the principles of democ
racy as taught by Thomas Jefferson,
defended by Andrew Jackson and ad
vocated by W. J, Bryan. We invite
all those who believe In the princi
ples of W. J. Bryan and his election
to the presidency of the United
States to unite with us In this move
ment irrespective of their past po
At Fayetteville, N. C, the "Bryan
association of Cumberland" was or
ganized. E. J. Hale was chosen
president, W. B. Malloy, secretary,
H. McD. Robinson, treasurer. These
resolutions were adopted:
"It is apparent that the principles
of the democratic party, as expound
ed by William J. Bryan, of Nebraska,
and expressed in the Nebraska demo
cratic platform adopted on Thursday,
have come to bo accepted by the
great body of the people as the true
American doctrine; that the impend
ing political campaign will be fought
out upon the issue whether this gov
ernment shall be administered for
the benefit of the few, as now, or
for the benefit of the many, as form
erly; that Nature has endowed Mr.
Bryan with extraordinary gifts of in
tellect and with moral and physical
powers adapted to its use in behalf
of the people; that ho is the recog
nized leader of the millions who long
for reliet from the burden of class
legislation; and that these circum
stances and tho occasion pre-eminently
fit him for leadership of the dem
ocratic party as well as for the duties
of chief magistrate. Therefore be it
Resolved, That this convention of
representative democrats of Cumber
land county heartily endorse the ac
tion of his state of Nebraska in pre
senting the name of Mr. Bryan to
the democratic national convention
at Denver for the presidential nom
ination; That we approve and en
dorse the platform of principles
adopted by the said Nebraska demo
cratic convention as a correct state
ment of the fundamental principles
of the democratic party as applied to
the present needs of the country;
That we use our best endeavor to
promoto the unanimous acceptance
of tho views and purposes set forth
above, by tho voters of this county,
district and state, and that, for the
bettor execution of these aims, this
convention constitute itself a Bryan
Democratic association, to bo known
as tho Bryan Association of Cumber
land county; That wo respectfully in
