He asked permission to introduce an
amendment to the platform as signed
by the entire committee that relating
to the national administration He
read it as follows

the tide is turning toward democracy

Mr Bryan made no comment after

nittee on resolutions Mr Bryan
was among the first two of the com-
i mittee of seven named Congressman
i Hitchcock made his motion to re
strict discussion The opponents of
Mr Bryan asserted that if individual
introduction of platform planks had
been permitted with a speech or
speeches on each one it would have
materially delayed the progress of the
body While they asserted their wil
lingness that he should speak on the
minority report which he was expect
ed to introduce the action practically
prohibited any other speech from him
in the convention

not aware what a repudiation at your
hands will mean to me It has been
said that I am making this fight be

could be more untrue
Mr Bryan here referred to the po
litical battles he had waged and de
clared that he had been fearless when
his own future seemed at stake
Continuing he said I have been
called a dictator for expressing my
opinion Your candidates here today
have expressed their sentiments By
what law am I compelled to remain
silent When I feel that the good
name of my state is at stake
It has been said that I am
ture and said that of the 207 bills
passed a republican court had only
declared three unconstitutional He
said the democratic administration

it had saved the people a million

moral question I am not afraid to ex

if I have to stand alone
Plot to Betray the State
Mr Bryan declared that he had
learned on his return from South
America of the plan to betray Nebras
