DR. BEAR RATHER MISSED OLD
BRYAN'S MAGNETISM WAS FELT
Madison County Democratic State Con
vention Delegate Found Less Antog-
onlstn to Primary Than He Had Ex
pected Roosevelt Strong.
Dr. A. Bear , Madison county's repre
sentative nt the democratic state con
vention at Lincoln , found little or no
trace of the old time political conven
tions In the state party meetings nt
Lincoln this week. And Dr. Bear , who
lias been a familiar figure In nearly
every democratic state convention In
Nebraska for thirty years , rather
missed the old time convention ma
chinery and enthusiasm although ho
conceded that the smaller gathering
was u more effective working body.
"The new direct primary conven
tion , " remarked Dr. Bear , " Is more
suggestive of a small legislative body
than the usual Impressive state con
vention. In fact there Isn't a trace
left of the old convention which wo
have all been attending for years.
"At Lincoln I found possibly less an
tagonism to the state wide primary
than I had expected. A sort of a feel
ing exists In many quarters that It was
Inevitable and might Improve with ago.
"There wasn't much president mak
ing at Lincoln. But where there is
any considerable gathering of men one
can not help being impressed with the
great strength of Roosevelt. Bryan's
magnetism was in evidence again at
our own convention. But It was gen
erally conceded lo be too far ahead
for any teal president making. "

Governor Magoon has been aware
