delegation In formal caucus.
w Yorkers Mot for Rrran.
Neither Judge FarkeT nor Mr. Sheehan
rav? made any effort to disguise the fat
that they wojld prefer to have almost any
democrat nominated for president than Mr.
Kryan, but both denied that they had come
to Dener "with knives up their eevea"
for the Nebraskan. . Mr., Sheehan aald he
had come antral davt before the conven
t on to look over the ground and see what
are the chances for the nomination of a
man who would satisfy conservative .astern
democrats, and that conferences probably
vould.be held with other promlntnt demo
crats who hold similar views. It waa In
timated that if It was found that the nomi
nation Of Mr. Bryan Is Inevitable that they
will do their utmost to have a platform
that will not alienate eastern, or what has
been known for several years aa "Cleveland
temo.rats." He and other eastern demo
ir.iti do not favor the Nebraska antl-in-l'j-c
ijn plank, which they think spoils
lefrat for the democratic ticket In the
.Judge, Parker's disclaimer of having been
inv.lvtd In ths preparation of an antl
Urysn program was In the form of a state
inert that he had not attended any con
fi rences of any members of the New Tork
i eleg it'on and that b had paid no atten
t.on to convention arrangements thus far
rxcept to arrange to come here after he
1 ad been elected as a delegate-at-large.
It Is known, however, that Mr. Sheehan
Intends to have conferences with Frederick
U. Lynch, manager of Governor Johnson,
and J. Marvel, manager of the boom for
Judge Gray. ,r. ;
The purrose of these' conferences will be
to ascertain what strength Is possessed, by
the candidates opposed to Bryan and In
the light of the showing made to analyze
the situation throughout the -country and
determine whether -It Is possible to NJieep
away from Mr. Bryan more than one-thlnd
f the votes of the convention, which' ft Is
mc Mary to do t' His-nomination Is pre
te.ilofl. Should these conferences' prove the
accuracy of Mr. Bran'a claims of suffk'ten'
strength to Insur his' nomination' on h
first ballot, confetoures wllf then hi b'eli

may be asked -by Chairman Taggurt of
;ha national committee, to present to the
jonventlon resolutions on the death of
Srover Cleveland: In such event the reso
lutions to be presented will be handed Mr.
Parker, after having first been approved
by Mr. Bryan. This plan at least seems
to be uppermost In the minds of the Bryan
'eaders heie today..
Many resolutions on Mr. Cleveland arc
being drawn. It was stated that Mr.
Bryan, himself, had set about thw task.
Roger C. Sulilvan, the Chicago leader, ad
mitted that he would draw the resolutions
. hlrr self, and It was btated that Mayor
Pahlman of, Omaha, ard Judge Wade of
Iowa, were collaborating on the subject.
Apparently there Is no abatement of the
feeling engendered by the publication of
the Parker resolutions. Aside from their
objectionable character to the friends cf
Bryan, a feeling of resentment Is expressed
by members of the committee cn arrange
ments of 'i ho national committee.
"Th:it matter has been fully arranged
for at the meeting of the committee held
here last Saturday,1 said Mr. Bulllvan. The
rotnmltteo Instructed Chairman Tugpart to
designate some one to Introduce suitable
resolutions, and the committee was to see

modification eould be effected and Mr
Parker would consent to present the reso

Clayton Arrives with Oil.
Representative Henry t. Clayton of Ala
bama, who la slated for the per
manent chairmanship of the national
democratic convention, arrived here
today, following a conference with
Mr. Bryan at Lincoln yesterday. Like all
the other leaders who have talked with Mr.
Bryan en route to Denver, Mr. Clayton Is
confident of democratic victory next No
vember. Mr. Bryan himself believes that
the cause of democracy never had such a
hold on the people as It has at the present
time and he feels assured of the party's
The platform upon which the party will
go before the country continues to form
the main topic of discussion with all tho
leaders who stop off at Lincoln. It seems
to be clearly settled that there shall be a
clear and explicit pronouncement on the
subject of Injunctions Involving labor dis
putes. Mr. Clayton said that the plank
will be so drawn as to leave no room for
doubt as to where the democratic party
It was a mistaken Idea. Mr. Clayton said,
that the lenbor leaders are clamoring for
a radical declaration which would, In ef
fect, align the party agalnBt the Judiciary
of the country. All. they wanted was fair
and reasonable legislation which will re
store to them the right of notice Iri Injunc
tion proceedings which was provided for
on the statute books for seventy years pre
ceding the codification of the laws in 1ST8.
"There Is no question In my mind." said
Mr. Clayton, "that the large majority of
the labor organisations will be satisfied
with the plank as It will be finally adopted
by the convention."
Bryan's Views on Weft-roes.
'The negro question may come to the front
In the convention. Report has reached
Denver 'that Mr. Bryan would be pleased
to see 'Incorporated In the platform a re
buke to the administration for the dis
missal, of the colored troops on account of
the Brownvllle (Texas) affair and the
southerners who are on the field are by
no 'means' friendly to the Idea. As the
story goes, the Nebraska candidate has
been recently visited by representatives of
the negro race who have assured him that
a very slight denunciation of the course of
the administration In that matter would
Insure thousands of votes to the democratic
ticket, n the close or doubtful states of the
north, and It Is asserted that he was found
to be not unfavorable to such a course.
'The "probable opposition of southern dele
gates Is fully recognised and It is consid
ered doubtful whether, after mature delib
eration, there will be any determined ef
fort on behalf of the resolution. It Is
.therefore possible that the contention will
content Itself with a .declaration aga'nst
summary proceedings by the executive In
such matters without mentioning any spe
cific Instance or nny race.
Adheres to Nebraska Platform. .
The latest arrivals from Lincoln bring ths
Information' that in his draft of a plank
regarding the writ of injunction In labor
disputes, which continues the crucial .point
of discussion, Mr. Bryan Is adhering to the
1 nes laid down In the Nebraska platform
requiring notice to defendants and hearing
by the courts; requiring that injunction
trials shall be conducted by some Judge
other than the author of trie writ, and per
mitting Juries In. certain cases. .But there
are already suggestions of compromise.
The conservatives are especially- holding
cut against the . sweeping requirement for
notice, and many of Mr. Bryan s best
tr ends are inclined to be of the opinion
that his views would carry the convention
further than It can possibly go on ths
point. Many modifications have already
been suggested, nnd it Is known that some
of these have been brought to the attention
of the Nebraskan.
The latest of these suggestions look to a
ihunge In the notice clause so as to permit
the Issuance' of injunction writs In labor
controversies without notice In cases of
great emergency, but requiring that a time
limit be fixed and providing for notice and
hearln fecond presentation of the subject
to the courts. It Is very evident that If
some modification Is not obUlned the plank
will be bitterly fought In committee and
probably on the floor of the convention.
TonH Headqnartrrs Open.
The boom of Charles A. Towne of New
York for second place on the democratic
national ticket was formally launched to
day. Headquarter were opened In the
Savoy hotel. In charge of Don Farnsworth
of Chicago. Mr. Farnsworth Is a former
Tammanylte and conducted the campaign
for Mr. Towne which resulted In Jils elec
tion to congress, from the Fourteenth con
gressional district of New York.
"We have enough assurances," declared
Mr. Farnsworth, "to lead us to believe
that Mr. Towne will be honored by the
convention with the nomination for vice
president. He la known all over the coun
try aa a staunch democrat and a man of
brilliant attainments and much -political
experience and, coming from New York,
would be a tower of strength on the
While not speaking in disparagement of
the other candidates for the office, whose
names have been mentioned. Mr. Farns
worth declared that none of them would
be more satisfactory to Mr. Bryan than
New Yorker Hand.
Coming la Lincoln Bird S. Coler of New
York and Daniel J. Campau of Michigan
arrived in Denver this morning. They
make strong accessions to the Bryan fol
lowing. Mr. Coler had scarcely registered
wl-en he was accos ed by a newspaper n an.
"Brym w-tll be nominated and he will b
elected," he said. "Furthermore, he will
carry New York, notwithstanding the pre
dictions of McCarren and others to the con
trary. He will have an Immense majority
In the city and will coma cut of the e e tion
with the Empire state behind him. He Is
stronger with the people than he ever has
been and the lobbyists cannot frighten tin

nor regret his election when he Is once on

about. These men have been against me

Mr. Coler declined to discuss the Parker
Cleveland resolutions further than to ex
pres the opinion that they had been pre
ixtrtd by professional Ubblsta for the pur
pose of making trouble. He said he bad
not talked at length with Mr. .JBryaB ie
garding the platform, but that so far as
be was concerned he believed In a strorg
expression on the quest Kn of the writ of
Injunction. "They talk of attacking the
courts," he said. "They reaon errone
ously. An Injunction plank Is no attack n
the courts, and I should not regard the
matt.r from that port of view. It Is
r ght and whatever Is. right will win."
Aside from the question of who shall
be tho standard bearer of the democratic
party next November, Interest toflay cen
tered In the chairmanship of the demo
cratic national committee. Although but
one delegation has perfected Its organlaa
tlon, that of Utah, and the membership
Of the new national committee Is as yet
Unknown, as the contest for the chairman
ship began today In earnest. Suprortrrs
of D. J. Campau of Detroit were pushing
ilm to the front and expressed confldenes
In his ultimate selection for the office. Mr.
Camp.iu was chairman of the executive
committee In 1MK3, and his services at that
time were fully recognized. Besides, he
has In the past contributed largely toward
the advancement of the party's Interest.
While It Is conceded that Mr. Campau Is
having trouble with tho democratic leaders
of Michigan in regard to being continued
as a member of the national committee,
of which he has been a member for twelve
years, It Is pointed out that membership
on the committee is not necessarily a per
quisite for the chairmanship.
While Mr. Campau's friends have become
active, the adherents of Tom L. Johnson
of Cleveland are exerting themselves In his
behalf, and they made It known today that
they would bend every effort to secure for
the mayor of Cleveland the coveted place.
So far the contest seems to lie between
these two men. and the outcome Is being
watched' with the keenest Interest.

gets Into the bandwagon at the psychologi
cal moment," was the response.
Judge Lynn waa accompanied by six other
delegates from the western . part of New
York state, and will leave for the west to
night. Hearst Kdltorlal Significant.
The topic wnich became of keen Interest
as Mr. Bryan's defense in today's Com
moner of William R.. Hearst and his Inde
pendence party. While the article is not!
given more than second page prominence,
It Is considered significant by many that
he should at this time take up and defend
Mr. Hearsts attitude apd sincerity.
Delegates who are willing to express '
themselves on the subject believe that Mr. ,
Bryan Is not only willing to make peace
with the New York man, but will go "so1
far as t- make 'overtures In the event of
his finding the Independence party leader ;
In a receptive mood. One Kentucky dele
gate stated the belief that the result will
be that the Independence party, when It
folds Its convention, will endorse Mr.
Bryan for the presidency or possibly ac
cept the whole ticket.
Tho wording of the article, which Is
entirely of an editorial nature, leaves little
doubt that Mr. Bryan is In sympathy to a
great extent with the reforms advocated
by Hearst, and sums up the platform of
Hearst in n manner which many say Is
meant purely In the way of extending the
olive branch to Mr. Hearst.
Greater Interest was felt here concerning
the conciliatory Hearst editcrlal. which
became public locally when the Commoner
appeared on the news stands. Mr. Bryan's
defense 'of Mr. Hearst and the Independ
ence league was regarded as a deliberate
offer of the olive branch an Invitation to
the New York publisher to come back to
the field, to complete the restoration of
harmony in the party. Mr. Hearst
response to this overture Is awaited with
the deepest Interest. It Is even hinted tn
some, quarters that Mr. Bryan had been
assured that such a concession on his part
would meet with a prompt response from
Mr. Hearst. No matter how much truth
there may be In these conjectures, the
benefits of a reconciliation between the
two leaders of the democratic party la
something no one questions.
The Parker resolution, which created a
furore of excitement among Bryan's
friends at Denver yesterday, created
scarcely a ripple here today, although
there was more comment due to publica
tion of news of the state of mind at Den
ver. Local friends of Mr. Bryan raised
their e throws a trifle upon reading the
text of the resolution, but generally were
Inclined on second thought to blame the
apparent thrusts at Mr. Baan to unfortu
nate phraseology rather than to a deliber
ate attempt on the part of Judge Parker
to institute invidious comparisons between
the Nebtaskan and Mr. Cleveland under
cloak of an eulogy of the latter. Governor
Haskell was among those who refused to
believe that Judge Parker could have been
guilty of malicious intent In framing the
resolution. Mr. Bryan after he had read
the' resolution refused a statement, declar
ing that It would entail an explanation
longer than ha cared to make.
Johnson Wanted (or Chairman.
While the delegates passing through will
not haxard a guess about the national
chairman, many of them did have the
courage to say;
"Mr. Bryan's success this year will de
pend largely on the Identity of his chair
man," That Is about as near as any man .has
come to speaking out on the question.
It Is a safe guess, however, to say Intl-
mule frii-r.ds of Mr. Bryan favor Tom John
son of Cleveland. When this name was
mentioned to a man who should be clobe to
the candidate, he said: ,
"There Is no doubt Mr. Bryan's friends
would like to have Johnson take the place,
Whether he is a good organiser himself or
not. he has the ability to surround himself
with mighty clever politicians."
Next to Johr.son, David R. Francis of Mis
souri has been favorably mentioned by
few outsiders, but one man close to Bryan
put the finishing touches onto Francis by
"Do you suppose Bryan can win with a
stock broker for chairman?"
This man really believes Francis la the
best orgarJser In the democratic party, but
Mr. Bryan's friends have to be consistent
or appear to be.
It is impossible to get any man to stand

I. J. Dunn came In yesterday afternoon
for a few hoars and had a talk with the
peerless ona- about that nominating speech.
'Don't quote me on anything," was all he

either to go tp Omaha or Denver. He had

had been speeding west under the lime

democratic candidate for the presidency,
Mr. 'Alton B. Purker. also Leader Murihv
of Tanlmany, as well as McCarren of
Brooklyn, Francis Burton Harrison, an
other vice presidential possibility, and
other notables of the New York democracy.
While the leaders of the party were de
training tn Denver today, the delegates to
the convention were entraining for the
journey in all sections of the country, and
the stream ,af arrivals from now on will
be steady and increasing in volume. And
as they come every hour through the elec
tric arch of "Welcome" at the Union
station, the new convention city and Its
hotels and populace Is warming up to th.
task of entertainment. A white badge a
large as a goose egg has been boldly donne.l
by the residents of Denver, which says In
plain black letters:
"I live in Denver; ask me."
There is one grief, however, which the
cltiAns bear heavily. It has been de
creed that but 1.50i) seats in the convention
hall ran be allotted for local use. With
four sessions of the convention In sight,
this means that only 8.U00 Denverites have
a chance to witness the proceedings at any
time. The ona ray of hope which glints in
is the fact that delegates will each have
five tickets. Many of these delegates are
far from home. They have no friends here,
and personal influence might separate,
them from some of the tickets. The loral
papers tell their subscribers to be on the
lookout for ticket scalpers; that while the
price may be high, opportunity to tee the
convention may bo afforded to those who
care to pay. Likewise, grief has come to
the numerous candidates for first and sec
ond place on the ticket. The city council
has decreed that no "headquarters" ban
ners may stretch across the streets. The
simple reason is given that such banners
would interfere with the scheme of deco
ration which la being carried out by the
business men of the town. Names of the
various candidates will be permitted to
adorn the exterior walls of the place of
their headquarters, painted on canvass or
Illuminated, and this must satisfy.
