CtiiL'Atio, Sept, 3. Chairman Jones
of the Democratic national committee
has mado public a letter to William
J. llryan from Arthur Suwall, appar
ently dated July 2r, at which time
the Populist convention was In ses
sion. Tho letter, which is exciting a
great deal of comment, reads us fol
lows: "Hath, Mo., July-'.', lfiOtl. My dear
Mr. llryan: lu view ot tho action of
thu St, Louis convention to-day, I
cannot refrain from giving you my
thoughts on the situation.
"My advices are that you have been
nominated as a candidate for Presi

dent. I also learn through tho press
dispatches that yon are somewhat un
decided whether you ought to accept
or decline. Now, I desire to say to
you, with the utmost frankness ami
good feeling that you must not allow
any personal consideration for me to
influence you in your action.
"1 desire you will do just what you
believe best for the success of the
head of our ticket. The principles wo
are fighting for aic so paramount to
any personal considerations that the
latter should not liavu any weight or
inlluuncu whatever with your action.

lication was to foiest.tll falso rumors
as to the altitude. of Mr. Sewall toward
such a ceremony,
.iccoiupanylng tho letter Is the fol
lowing oflicial statement: "Several
days ago Chairman Jones wrote
a letter to Mr. .So wall stating
to him that. many Democrats
throughout the country, and
especially ' throughout tlio West,
were objecting to fusion with tlio
Populists on electoral tickets, for the
it-asnn that thev did not wish to be 1
disloyal to Mr. hewall. In reply to
Chairman Joucs.Mr. Sewall forwarded
the foregoing copy of a letter written
to Mr. llryan."
Upon being qiirstlone.il as to tho
tiiuo when .Scwall'.s resignation
would go Into etToct. Chairman Jones
said: "Tho talk about the retirement
of our candidate for Vice President
is too ebsurd to be seriously dis
cussed, Mr. Scwoll's loiter, written
diiecllv after Mr. I ( cyan's nomination
by tho St. Louis convention, is a
splendid illustration of his loy
alty to his associate 011 tlio Demo

Timothy Hcitly. in nn interview re
garding tho Irish convention, said:
"1 .1111 most surprised at the way In
which the D'llonitcs have ignored
Thomas Sexton. I would havo
thought that tue convention would at
least have tried to induce Mr. Sexton
to tcturii to the party. As to the
breach of the majority rule, it is per
fectly absurd for the convention to
try to fasten it upon inc. Tlio only
persons who ever broke tho rule of
thu majority nro John Dillon nnd
Thomas Sexton. I challenge the DU
tonitcs to prove, a single instance,
against mvsclf or my friends."
Mr. Mealy explained ut length that
the party rledge which ho tlrow in

of discipline. Ilo wns quite ready, ho
said, to obey the ruling of tlio whole
party, but ho never pledged himself
to submit his judgment to John Dil

or even all three. "But," ho contin
ues, "If the party exceeds its province
by touchidg matters outside tho par
liamentary sphere, I will disregard it if

dreamt that a person of Dillon's cali

the interpretation of the pledge. Hut
I will let him do his utmost. That is
my answer to l.r.n aud his convention."

Whitney, ex-postmaster general of

strong revival of the annexation feel
ing 011 the Islands and says that it is
greatly inteindlled through the belief
that should Hawaii bo tiunexcd to thn
United States the threatened
Japanese trouble would bo entirely
wiped out by the abrogation of
all existing treaties. By what is
known us the Gibson treaty, entered
into with Japan about thirteen years
ago, tho Japanese may pour lulo tho
islands in unlimited n'umbcis. They
now number 25,000 and are cominr- at
tho alarming rate of 3,000 a year. He
thinks it is ouly a question of a few
years when the Japanese will out
number tho natives and naturalised
population, and in that case would
cause serious trouble. 1 hey are
already demanding tho right of fran

OKLAHOMA DIVORCE LAW

torial supreme oourtyestorday handed
down II fly decisions, among them be
ing ono In tlio famous Beach dlvorco
case. Charles F. Beach, a wealthy
text-book writer of New York city, a
year ago obtained an Oklahoma di
vorce from his wife. Annie Bench,
alleging cruelty. He has sinco mar
ried and is traveling in Kuropo with
his bride. The divorced wife, who
wus from Philadelphia and very high
ly connected, carried tlio divorce case
to the supremo court. That body re
versed thu lower court, annulled the
divorce and dismissed the case, leav
ing Mr. Beach lauded high and dry as
The ground for reversal on error
was that Beaclt was uever a rcsldcn'
in good faith of the territory or of
tlio county in which tho tlivorce was
granted, having lived nt Perry three
months simply ns a transient guest,
and going to Norman, where tho dl
vorco was granted, but tho day before
the implication was granted. The
bame holding by the court will annul
three-fourths of the divorces ever
grauted in the territory.
Tho court also decided that the
herds of cattlo in the Indian reserva
tion could not be IunciI, except for
general, territorial, and court ex
penses. This is a -cat victory for tho
owners of the great cattle herds, who
thus save many thousands of dollars.
