WILLING TO MAKE SACRIFICE
FOR PARTY'S SAKE.
HE WOULD FAVOR H. SMITH'
Personal Friends of William J. Bryan
Are Said to Believe That He Would
be Willing to Give Up Personal End
For Sake of Democracy.
Washington , May 29. Fearing another -
other | disastrous split in the democrat-
lc party like that of 1890 , W. .1. Bryan ,
according ' to cloau personal friends
here ' , will not press for a third nonilo
nation ' for thu presidency. I
The oflen activity of the anti-Bryan
wing of the party , which Is being manIt
Ifeated all over the country , and espo-lv I
chilly down south , is having a dopres-'n '
sing ' effect on the Nebraskan and his J
They have become greatly dlscour-
aged at the outlook , and rather than
face another factional contest within
the party , Bryan , it Is believed , will j '
osiHMiso the cause of some other as
pirant a .southern man.
Won't Accept Reactionary.
Tills view of Bryan's probable
course Is held by his closest personal
friends , who have been associated
with him In his two former campaigns.
They also hold to the belief that Bry
an will quit only on ono stipulation
that the democracy of the nation .shall
agree on n candidate whom all ele
ments of the party can accept and
support loyally and with vigor.
Bryan will not accept Judge Gray
of Delaware or Daniel of Virginia , or
any "reactionary" of their kind. Por-
IHonal friends who have tallied with
Bryan lecently assort that he has giv
en them plain intimation that ho does
not wish another nomination under ex-
listing circumstances. Ho believes
that the party could select a candidate
' ' whoso nomination nil past iiciiinony
could be burled and whoso campaign
for election could be waged with hope
Hoke Smith His Choice.
Bryan has mentioned as his favorite
candidate Iloke Smith , governor of
Georgia. If ho could Induce his ad
herents as well as those of the con-
scrvatlvo element In the north and
east to accept Governor Smith , Bryan ,
it is said , would bo content nnd would
oven make a declaration in favor of
this southern nomination in his own
HoKo Smith , although originally
known as n Cleveland democrat , was
one of only two members of the Cleve
land 1 cabinet who supported Bryan loy
ally in 1890. He was popular in the
Cleveland camp , but recently became
an exponent of go\ eminent regulation
'of the railroads. On that Issue he en
tered the democratic primaries in
Geoigla ( against popular rivals like
Clark Howell and won a signal vic
tory , overwhelming his opponents.
Johnson Not on List.
While Bryan prefers Hoke Smith ,
believing him best fitted to cement the
various elements of the democracy and
gain popular support In tlio north and
east as well as thu solid south , ho has
two or three other southern men up
his } sleeve , it is said , if his propaganda
for f Governor Smith should miscarry.
Two governors of southern states ,
recently elected , arc in his list. Gov
ernor Comer of Alabama and Govern
or Campbell of Texas , as well as Sen
ator Culberson of the lone star state.
Governor Smith of Georgia , however ,
is decidedly his first choice. William
L. Douglas of Massachusetts and Governor -
ernor Johnson of Minnesota have been
mentioned as being in the Bryan list
also , but this is denied by those who
claim to have the right to speak for
Two Sides to Game.
Should an effort be made on the
part of the conservative wing of the
party to foist a candidate like Judge
Gray or Alton B. Parker on the con
vention , Bryan , it is said , would then
enter the fight and demand his own
nomination , even In the face of an
other factional contest with respective
lefeat at the polls.
There are two sides , apparently
herefore , to the game of trotting1 oui t
'favored sons" candidates In the dem
ocratlc side. One effort evidently is
being engineered by the anti-Bryan
mon , while Bryan and his friends on
: ho other hand , intend to play a slmi
lar game , with Hoke Smith as their
No Alliance With Hearst.
It is regarded as significant tha
Bryan does not favor William R
Hearst , nor in it believed that the No
brnskan'B friends can bo Induced to
withdraw for Hearst. The coolnes
between thum appears to bo growing
more , rather than less , frigid , dospit
the efforts of Bryan's foes to hitch ui
the Kobraskan and the Now Yorko
in a political alliance.
Bryan la represented as believing
that should Secretary Taft bo nomi
nated by the republicans under Presi
dent Roosevelt's direction , the demo
crats would have an excellent oppor
tunity , which it should take advantage
of , with the best man to weld the party
together as the national standard-
Why Bryan prefers a southern dem
ocrat for the candidate is conjectural ,
but his friends insist that ho does not
that ho would willingly glvo Hoko
Smith his loyal , earnest support , both
for the nomination nnd In the cam
paign for election.
