When asked about the vice preldentlal
situation Mr. Alschuler declared that In his
opinion the great desirable attribute for

Will Honor Cleveland's Memoir.
After meeting and perfecting a tem
porary organization next Tuesday, the
democratic convention will adjourn for the
day 6Ut of respect to the memory of former
President Cleveland, it the present pirns
of the committee on arrangements are car
ried Into effect.
The committee has not reached the point
of making a definite announcement, but
there has been recently- discussed and the
rxpresslou generally favors this course.
It Is believed that tha adjournment can be
taken In this way without Interfering with
the progress of the proceedings of the con
vention and at the same tlmo enable-the
convention to pay the proper degree ol

The committees will bo announced so that
they can proceed with their buslnesss. The
program looks to , tho completion of tha
Work of the convention within three days.
No Jobuaon for Bryan Men.
The principal event in connection with
the forthcoming democratic national con
vention today was the arrival of Frederick

of .,thc - presidential boom of
Sovernor John A. Johnson of that state. A

was made several weeks ago by Mr. Lynch,
and an extensive suite of rooms has been
prepared for him and his staff.
The announcement of Mr. Lynch's coming
had the effect of causing a renewal of the
discussion of the possibilities of the nom
ination of tho governor for vice-president,
rather than for the presidency. It was
conceded on all hands, privately even by
the supporters of Governor Johnson, that
his nomination for the first position was
problematical; but his friends were staunch
in their determination to have 'his name
presented to the convention for the presi
dency, even in the face of the possibility
of his defeat, and most of them were quite
as positive In the declaration that he would
not accept the second place even If It
should be tendered to him.
The discussion of the Minnesota gover
nor's chances for the vice-presidency, while
quite general among the uninformed, was
not Jndulged In seriously by those who
Were In accord with the Inner Bryan cir
cles. They did not accept his name with
favor and It may be announced even thus
far in advance of the meeting of the con
vention that the Minnesota man will not
be Mr.vBryan's running mate In the event
of the Nebraskan's nomination. Mr.
Bryan's most intimate 'friends and most
steadfeot supporters are quits determined
on this point. While they do not openly
criticise Mr. Johnson's condtdacy, they
are very evidently displeased with the fact
that he entered the race and it Is even In
timated that Mr. Bryan, himself, would not
favorably consider tha Johnson candidacy
Jndgi Cray Acceptable.
On the other hand It Is known that Judgo
Gray of Delaware would be In every way'
acceptable to Mr. Bryan as the candidate
for '-the 'secdrjd place, and the" position
generally conceded to 'him II ha will accept
It. His conservatism is not a bar, but
rather a help to his candidacy. Mr. Bryan
had at no time taken the position against
a conservative associate, but has said to
many of his friends that he would not
object to a running mate who does rxit go
to the lengths that he does If In other
respects the man were acceptable. Mr.
Bryan's closer friends concede the wisdom
of selecting a candldato who would be In
closer accord with eastern thought than is
Mr. Bryan himself, and they point out that
while Judge Gray meets this demand, In
many respects he would not be antagonistic
to Mr. Bryan's especial supporters.
It Is believed that his connection with
tho anthracite coal strike arbitration of a
fow years ago would add Immensely to the
popularity of the ticket among the laboring
classes, and It is contended that during
hlB long career In the United States senate
and on the federal bench he has never In
any way antagonised the labor Interest. It
la conceded that Judge Gray Is not a 'can-
on the Ton

dldatc for second place, but the contention
Is persistently made that If the nomina
tion should bo tendered him he would not
refuse It. It H known that he found his
work In the senate thoroughly conaenla'.,
and those famlllir wt'.h his disposition say
that he would prefer the vlco presidency to
his work on the bench.
New York After Delaware.
. If the nomination does not go to Judge
Gray. New Tork will probably claim It, and
In that contingency the New Yorkers who
ore on tho ground assert that the position
will be awarded to that state If the New
York delegation can unite upon a candidate.
In other words, the situation with reference
to the vice presidency In the Denver con
vention now parallels the vice presidential
situation In the Chicago convention previous
to the nomination of Mr. Sherman. As In
Chicago, the difficulty may be In uniting
upon an available candidate. The dvelop
meats of the day have already practlcklly
eliminated Lieutenant Governor Chan
ler from the contest. Mr. Bryan's
friends are not favorably Inclined to
him because they are doubtful whether
his position' on the tariff would
place l'.lm in accord with Mr. Bryan.
In this connection It Is made apparent that
past public utterances of Mr. Chanler on
this subject have received close scrutiny,
with the result that they are regarded as
not accurately representing the present
position of the dominant element In the
With Mr. Chanler thus practically dis
posed of, there has been renewed -discussion
of the name of Reprepentative Burton
Harrison of New York and the name of
Hon. John B. Sianehfield of Elmlra, N. Y.,
was also prominently mentlonVd today In
connection with the office. The confidence
manifested bjt the New Yorkers In "Speak
ing of Mr. Stanchfleld Is the best evidence
of their belief that If he should be brought
forward as a candidate he would not only
unite the New York delegation, but would
command the Immediate support of Mr.
Bryan's closest following.
Stanchfleld Friend of Bryan.
Mr. Stanchfleld Is one of Mr. Bryan's
old friends In the east, and while ranked
as a conservative, gave the Nebraskan his
loyal support in his campaigns of ISM and
1900. His standing as a private citizen, and
his reputation as a public man are regarded
as strong points In his favor, and It is
confidentially asserted that he would add
greatly to the strength of the presidential
ticket, not alons In New York, but in many
other eastern states. There has also been
mentioned ths name of Mr. Norman E.
Mack of Buffalo, present national commit
teeman from New" York, but Mr. Mack,
who Is on the ground, pooh poohs the sug
gestion. Among those of the south mentioned In
connection with the vice presidential nomi
nation Is Governor Robert B. Glenn of
North Carolina, and Mr. Glenn is already
represented In Denver by 11. M. Holleman,
and other friends who ore working among
the delegates as they arrive. They call
attention to the fact that the governor
won marked praise by his oratory at tho
recent governors' assembly In Washington
and also point to his record In connection
with railroad legislation In North Carolina,
claiming that he would not only on ac
count of his record, but because of his
capacity as a speech-maker make an ef
The headquarters of Judge George Gray
of, Delaware were thrown open today.
Jorlah Marvel of Wilmington. Del., and
R. J. Beamish of Philadelphia, who are in
charge of the Delaware man's campaign,
had Intended to open th'e headquarters and
launch the Gray boom last night, but they
were delayed In reaching the city, and
when they arrived at their rooms at the
Savoy hotel It was decided to postpone
Khe openlnjr Unfit tftflay. '
Gray film Open -Headquarters.
Even tlfen the Gray poople were the
first to open regular headquarters. Yestes
day they caused numerous lithograps of
their candidate to be placed around the
leading hotels and they were, early today,
the only pictures of any candidate to be
seen In. the city except In the headquarters
of the national committee, where pictures
of all of the presidential aspirants are dis
played conspicuously. '
Mr. Marvel declared last night and
reiterated today that Judge Gray Is not a
candidate for anything but the presidency.
Ho was asked If the Judgo would accept
the- nomination provided the convention
adopted a platform containing a radical
anti-lnjunctlon plank. To this Mr. Marvel
"I do not think that such a condition
will arise. From all I 'Can gather, the
Denver platform will not contain any ,uU
terance on the anti-lnjunctlon proposition
varying largely from the expressions con
tained In democratic platforms for the last
Stress was laid by Mr.-Marvel upon the
fact that there are 400 unlnstructed dele
gates In the convention, and lie believes
that Judge Gray will be able to obtain
many of them on the first ballot, more
of them on the second ballot, and will
then make inroads In the Bryan dele
gations that will eventually result In the
nomination of the Delaware candidate.
It has been decided by the Delaware
delegates that I. U Layton shall represent
that state on the committee on resolutions.
He Is expected to arrive In this city in
company with a large number of other
Gray boomers on the evening of July 4.
According to Mr. Marvel the Delaware
delegation has some well developed Ideas
of what the anti-Injunction plank should
be, but will not make them public until
they are offered by Mr. Layton. when the
platform committee meets. That these
Ideas are In harmony with the views ex
pressed In the last three platforms of the
democratic party Is admitted.

, WILMINGTON, Del.. July l.-In reply to
question from el representative of the
Associated Press Judge Gray this morning
stated that he had si-nt a telegram to thu
New York Evening Journal as follows:
I have your telegram saying that it Is
staled positively that I will accept the vice
firroldentiul nomination and asking whether
t Is true. As I have repeatedly said. I
would not consent to being placed In nomi
nation as a candidate for the presidency,
I now say with equal emphasis that I will
under no circumstances consent to a nomi
nation for the vice presidency.
(Slicned) GEORGE GRAY.
DENVER, Colo., July t. When shown s
copy of Judge Grsy's telegram from Wil
mington, declaring that he would not con
sent "to being placed In nomination as a
car.lldato for the prealdency." Mr. Marvel,
the Gray campaign manager, said:
"There Is nothing new In that telegram.
It repeats exactly what Judge Gray said In
bis letter to the Delaware convention. He
never has given his consent to being placed
In nomination befora tha convention, but
his friends, who realise how well qualified
he Is to be president of the I'nited States,
have taken the matter Into their own hands.
It la our affair and not his."
When told thst It was reported that Mr.
Bryan favored John B. Stanchfield of New
York for vice-president. In case Grsy was
ot available, Mr. Marvel laughed and
- "There Is no need of my saying anything
on that subject. The only manner In which
we consider the vice-presidency Is to wonder
who will be on the ticket with Judge Gray."

BRYAN HAS XO SET PLATFORM
Beyond General Principles He Will

DENVER. Colo., July 1. "Do all you can"
to discourage the Idea that there Is a cut
and dried platform teady for the action
of tha democratic convention," said Willis
J. Abbat. a confidential friend of Mr.
Bryan, v. ho arrived In this city today. "I
left Mr. Bryan at Lincoln last night, and,
after three different Interviews with htm,
can assure you that there Is nothing far
ther from the truth than that he has a
platform prepared for the convention to
ratify. He is working on five resolutions,
and at the right time will probably pre
sent them to tho committee on platform
for its consideration. He will deal espe
cially with tho subjects of Injunctions,
trusts, railroads, the guarantee of bank de
posits and the tariff.
"Hs has given special consideration to tho
Injunction plank, and has about completed
his work on It, but I would defy a Sher
lock Jlolmes to get it out of hinK The other
four planks are still In course of prepara

It has not received more than passing at

a special declaration of principles which
he will insist on the convention adopting.
Nothing could be further from the truth."
