Delegation Not Agreed
(Krnni n Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb., July 2.-Speclal Tele
gra.n.) The resolution of respect for Gro
vcr C'li vc'.ar.d being taken to Denver by
Judse Parker will never be read upon the
floor of the convention unless Judge Par
ker Is stronger In that convention than
la William J. Bryan. That li settled and
agreed upon. Tho resolutions will be sent
to tho committee on resolutions, which will
be Instructed to present "suitable" resolu
tions. This was agteed upon today by a
number of the iromlnc.it delegates In the
city and Permanent Chairman Clayton was
given hU Instructions In the mutter. Whllo
the resolutions entile uie oli.'ectcd to as
"an effort to write a platform in a resolu
tion of respect," as a prominent New York
delegate put It, the straw that broke the
camel s back la this paragraph:
In thus giving expression to the keen
sense o Ids' felt without reference to po
litical opinion by owr fellow citizens
throughout the country, we recognise and
commend Ms faithfulness at all times and
under nil circumstance to the settled tra
ditions and policies of the democratic
party as exemplified by Its declaration of
principles, by Its acts and by the Ideas and
utterances of all It great leaders from
the days of Thomas Jefferson to those of
Samuel J. Tllilen.
That Is take n as a repudiation of Bryan's
principles, and that won't go In a Bryan
convention. The resolutions were the sub
ject of tnlk at several select meetings of
delegates and there Is no question the
delegates wlio looked for harmony are
afraid of the outcome when It Is presented.
It was the fieclalon of several leaders that
the matter should be burled In the resolu
tions committee and resolutions to suit
the majority should be substituted.
llran is Running- Things.
Governor Haskell of Oklahoma, who ar
rived with Mrs. Haskell tonight. Is the
only drlegate who makes no bones about
aaylng Mr. Bryan la running things. He
didn't even pretend to have a thought
about convention affairs, though a delegate
from his state. When asked If he would
Vote for a New York man for vlca presi
dent he said: "I am for any one Mr.
Bryan wants." When, asked what he had
to offer for the platform he aald he had
given the matter no thought, though tho
Oklahoma constitution, which provided for
a trial by Jury in certain Injunction cases,
expressed his idea about the plank. "But
Oklahoma," he said, "la a Bryan state.
It is for whatever Mr. Bryan wants. Un
til wa find out what he wants, I can't tell
"jfmi what the delegation will."
j idge Williams of Oklahoma, a mem
ber of the supremo bench and Incidentally
national committeeman from that state,
will not be a candidate to succeed himself
on the committee. He was asked If he
was for Vrey Woodson for chairman of
the national committee. "Woodson doesn't
stand a ghost of a ahow for the place," he
Easterner 8nb Mr. Bryan.
It will' be whatever Mr. Bryan says
candidate, and platform. That Is the Im
pression left here by a big bunch of east
ern delegatea en route to Denver, who
stopped off to find out what Bryan wanted.
"Do you mean the sugar lobbyist?"
replied Bird Coler to a question asked hini
about the McCarren contest over tha
Brooklyn delegatlou seats.
"I had heard there was to be a contest.
That man has fought me at every turn
of the road and I have whipped him every
time and will do It again.
"lt'a Just play."
Though a Wisconsin man who came In
on the train with Coler said the latter had
a vice presidential bee In his bonnet, Coler
denied that he was an aspirant.
Will you be a candidate or governor?"
be was asked.
"I wouldn't run from the nomination,"
Speaking of the antl-lnjunctlon plank
Coler said: "I am In favor of the Gomper
plank and If It la adopted at Denver we
will sweep the state. Bryan will be nomi
nated and elected."
"Who will represent New Tork on the
resolution commit tee?"
"I do not know," replied Coler. "Ths
delegation ha not held a caucus."
Mr. Coler said: "Senator Towne 1 strong
In New York, but I do not know whether
be will receive th support of the New
Tork dele gallon."
After parrying several qusatioe Mr.
Coler wiit asked: "Do you have to as Mr.
Bryan and get an Inspiration before you
can give out any Information?"
He started to r:)y. thought better of It
and then H.itled.

"Now, don't mix mu up as a candidate

smarting under the Insinuation that he was
Implicated In the assassination In Lisbon

Prince Ltilse, created a sensation In' the
House of lairds today by revealing; what
he declared to be the tru hlatory of this
regicide's plot. He asserted that the assas
sinations had lieen decided upon at a meet
ing of the lenders of tho progressive and
regenerator party a few days before they
were carried out. A number of republicans
also were present at this meeting.
Dr. Alpoiin charged further that the re
publicans proposed to obliterate the entire
royal family, with the exception of Maria
Pia, the mother of King Carlos, but that
the monarchists Insisted that such a gen
eral slaughter would be useless. Finally,
Manuel Sllva Buissu and Alfredo Costa
were given Savxfl and flO.iKX". respectively,
to kill King Carles and Premier Franco.
Arrangements were made by other men to
cover the flight cf the assassins, but when
Russia and Costa fired, their friends lost
their heads and opened fire also. These
shots resulted In the death of Crown Prince

William Jennings I'.rjuii to Infuse fac

convention, friends of the Neiuaskan to

chat aiter designed not to raise contro
verted political issues. Through control
of the temporary organization of the con
vention the Bryan following expects to
have Its resolution brought to the atten
tion of the eleiegates immediately after
the speech of the temporary chairman hn
been delivered. In that event the Parker
resolution would have to be offered as a
substitute if submitted at all, and the
Bryan men declare that the New Yotk
delegation would thereby be placed In the
attitude of uttemptlng under the guise of
eulogizing a great party leader to create
strife and dissension and to make harmony
Parker Resolution Denounced.
All democrats without regard to factional
affiliation applaud the suggestion com
ing from New York that the national con
vention should embrace the first oppor
tunity of honoring Mr. Clevelund, but most
of those who have expressed themselves
on the subject are of the opinion that tho
resolutions adopted should not contain any
thing over which there could be the
slightest difference of opinion. The New
Y'ork resolution, which was mado public
last night. Is denounced by such Bryan
leader as Mayor James C. Duhlman of
Omaha and Judge M. E. Wade of Iowa,
the member of the national committee
from that state. They argue that it adop.
tion would be a direct slap at Bryan and
Insist that In giving It out for publica
tion the New Yolk delegation Intended to
disparage the Nebraska candidate. The
portions of the resolution which partic
ularly aroused tho Ire Of the friend of
Mr. Bryan refer to Mr. Cleveland' record
on the questions of maintaining th in
tegrity of the court and finance, th par
agraphs being as follow:
He iespected the Integrity of our court
and so insisted upon strict enforcement of
tho law that every honest man or Interest
might be protected und all offender pun
islieel, without fear or favor.
He nialntnlneei the public credit and
honor, stooel firm as a rock In defense of
sound principles of finance and resisted
dangerous economic doctrines and prac
tices left by the republican party as a
heritage of our pe-ople.
Comment by Mayor Dahlmaa.
lt was said teielay by Mayor Dahlman
that these expressions are but thinly veiled
attacks upon Mr. .Bryan and his w.ll
known attitude on the question of adopting
an anti-Injunction plank and his position
in li and 1IW0 on the money question.
"TheBe questions have no proper place,"
salr Mr. Dahlman, "In resolution Intended
only to honor tho name of the late Mr.
Clevelund. Mr. Bryan's personal tribute to
tho memory of the. late president was of a
character proving that no man honored
Mr. Clevelund more or would go further in
giving him credit for advancing the Inter
ests of the democratic party. It is true that
Mr. Bryan und Mr. Cleveland held different
views on many questions of party policy
and with tho rare tact which ha alway
exhibits, Mr. Bryan refrained from any
allusion that might provoke strife In the
party. It is my opinion that the demo
cratic national convention. In adjourning
out of respect to Mr. Cleveland' memory
should follow Mr. Bryan' example."
Plans of Bryavn Men.
The publication of the Parker resolution
was a bombshell exploding In the midst of
the Bryan followers and steps war at once
taken by members of the eommltlea on
convention arrangement to head off It
Introduction In the convention. They were
unanimously of the opinion that it would
provoke a discussion und possibly a fight
which they desired to avoid. Several mem
bers of the committee who did not car
to be publicly quoted, did not hesitate te
say, however, that in their opinion an ar
gument In the convention over such a reso
lution as tills would be disgraceful and in
jure the party In the eyes of th country.
It waa therefore determined to take Im
mediate steps to ward off any tuoh pos
sibility, and at tho Instance of Koger C
Sullivan of Illinois lt was decided to pre
pare a resolution which, while honoring
the memory of Mr. Cleveland, would offer
no opportunity for acrimonious dispute in
The Bryan people, having possession ot
the temporary organization, decided that
the Cleveland resolution shall be presented
to the convention by a man who will b rec
ognized by Temporary Chairman Bell im
mediately after the conclusion of hi
speech, lf Judge Purker still desires to
brin ills resolution before the convention
It must be offered as a substitute for the
one which will be presented by th Bryan
R. M. Johuacn, the Texas member of th
committee on convention arrangement,
said today: "If that Parker resolution I
Introduced In the convention It will rata
all sorts of a row. The friend of Mr.
Bryan do not propose that, under th
guise of a resolution honoring Grover
Cleveland, Mr. Bryan shall be attacked and
his policies for the last twelve year held
up to rebuke."
Day Has No Objection.
A less aetii.ua view was taken ot th
Parker resolution by Frunk M. Day, secre
tary to Governor John A. Johnson, and
one of the manager of hi campaign.
Mr. Day said:
"l certainly think that the convention
should adopt a re-solution In honor of Mr.
Cleveland, und the one prepared by Judg
Parker seen s to me to be entirely proper
and to fill the i.ll properly."
At Gray headquarter Mr. Marvel said
that Mr. Cleveland was a world character
and tl at I.'.h ii.emory should be pld th
highest i ns.l)!e tributa. He had not read
the Parker resolution and he laid that th
wisdom of adopting it had not been called
to bis attention. After reading th reaolu-
