Datalmaa Talks for Dry an.
The Bryan managers have at no time
shown any nervousness over the renewed
activity of the allies, and today Mayor
Dahlman of Omaha, one of the Bryan
chiefs, made a very definite statement
shewing the expectations of the Bryan
forces. He expressed his views as follows:
"Mr. Bryan will be nominated on the
flist ballot. The Bryan forces now control
thirty-six delegations and will have at
least that many members of the commit
tee on resolutions and probably more.
The platform adopted wl'l be In accord
ance with Mr. Bryan's personal views and
will express his well known Ideas on all
of the Important political Issues.
"Governor Charles Haskell of Oklahoma

for the chairmanship of the committee on
resolutions, but there are many othnr
prominent men being mentioned for the

man will be chosen.
"The vice presidential question m-vy be
described as being 'In the air.' If the men

Good Seats la Bandwagon.
All of the Bryan men express the utmost
confidence In their ability to carry out the
program outlined by Mayor Dahlman.
Charles W. Bryan, the brother of the Ne
braska candidate, is looking after the
Bryan leaders as they arrive and ts mak
ing the compilations of Bryan strength.
"Although we already have more than
enough to carry out our program there are
still good seats on the band wagon."
The arrival of delegations began early
this morning nd has been going on steadily
all day, by all routes, from all directions
and by regular and special trains. Oive
route reports twenty-seven trains, stalling
the lines up from Kansas City and all the
other lines are equally choked with the tide
of travel. The local committee started an
cUborata plan of reception today with re
lays of trass bands, which welcomed each

hilarious, with trim black suits, shining
silk tlls and r tty canes topped with
streamers. After them came the rough and
ready Oklahomans. true products of the
oil, with broad-brimmed sombreros, hlgn
boots and the stain of travel. Delegations
from Florida, Alabama and Iowa filed
through the st reels during the morning and
later came delegations from South Dakota,
Pennsylvania. West Virginia, Maryland,
Kentucky and Minnesota. The Tammany
braves, on several special trains, wen
anxiously swatted, but word came that they
stopped off at Omaha to go to church.
They will be here early tomorrow, about

NEW YORK, July 4. The Fourth of July
celebration here today was the noisiest In
the city's history. Fortunately the death
list was not as large as on some previous
years. Six deaths were reported and there
were 200 peraons injured by 8 o'clock. Hos
pitals and Board of Health stations were
filled with patients all day. A number of
the injured were so seriously hurt that
they may die.
Police restrictions regarding the uae of
cannon crackers and firearms were not
heeded by most of the celebrators and
there were many arrests. The police courts
had long lines of prisoners and not a few
of the law breakers were meted out severe
punishment. The necessity of barring the
use of firearms was apparent early In the
day. A youth who took advantage of the
liberty of the day to practice shooting at

'NINE BALLOONS START IN RACE
Blsr Gasbags Cross Lake Michigan
la Northeasterly Direc
tion. CHICAGO. July 4-Nine of the ten bal
loons entered In the Chlcago-to-ocean race
left here late this afternoon. The start,
originally scheduled for 8:30 o'clock, was
delayed to such an extent that Uie first
balloon, the "Fielding," did not cast off
its moorings until two hours and fourteen
minutes after the schedule time. The
others arose at Irregular intervals, the last
to get away, the mammoth "Chicago" of
llfl.OOO cubic feet, leading at 7:50 when night
was descending fast. Tlie start was viewed
by scores of thousands of spectators. When
the "Cincinnati" left the grounds, Its pilots,
Leslie Haddock and George Howard, failed
to calculate accurately their distance from
a mass of electric light and telegraph wires
nenr the starting point, and their basket
became entangled In the obstacle. A warn
ing shout from the spectators gave them
their first notice of danger. Both men
leaned over the edge of the car and
grasped the wires. Howard fell back and
it was feared that he had been seriously
shocked. As Haddock succeeded In clear
ing the car, Howard again came Into view
and waved his hand to the crowd, being
apparently uninjured. The balloon "I
Will" did not start. The bag showed sev
eral defects when it was inflated for a
trial flight several days ago, and C. H.
Fcrrlgo of Chicago, its owner, was unable
to obtain the necessary repairs in time.
He sailed the 'Illinois." taking the place
of C. E. Gregory, who had been scheduled
to accompany J. F. Case In that balloon.
All the balloons took a nothrasterly
course from this city, sailing out over Laki
Michigan, where they were lost to view
In the evening mists.

day and evening. During the day there
were tennis and croquet contents, races
for both men and women and other outdoor

LINCOLN, July 5. (Special Telegram.)
Compared with his Saturday, Mr. Bryan's
Sunday was a quiet day, though several
delegations called at Falrvlew. There was
no music and no speech-making, Mr. Bryan
contenting himself with shaking hands with
his visitors. Among the prominent callers
were Governor Folk and ex-Qovernor
Francis of Missouri, Governor Hlgglns of
Rhode Island, ex-Governor Peck of Wis
consin and Mayor Rose of Milwaukee.
Governor Sheldon shared with Mr. Bryan
the honors of the day, all of the governors
calling at the executive mansion with
Mayor Brown to pay their respects to Ne
braska's chief executive. Governor Sheldon
came to the train with Governor Francis
at S o'clock and remained until the Roger
Sullivan special pulled In. Mr. Bryan also
came to the depot to see the bunch on this
speciul. Incidentally speaking of Roger
Sullivan,' when Judge Thompson and Mil
lard Dunlap, who have been at Falrvlew for
the last four days, left tonight, they gave
out the Impression In their talks that Sul
livan would not be re-elected to member
ahlp on the national committee. They are
from Illinois and, having been Bryan's
guests, they are suspected of knowing
whereof they speak.
While no one has been furnished advance
copies of the platform, there Is no doubt
that a tentative draft has been drawn, as
Governor Folk eald he and Mr. Bryan dis
cussed the tentative draft and both agreed
absolutely that Income tax, finance and
tariff would be the strong planks, and on
these planks the fight would be made this
fall. Governor Folk would not be specific
regarding the planks, however.
Governor Francis was too foxy to say
anything of Importance other than this:
"I am not a candidate for vice president
or for chairman of the national committee;
however. I cannot say I will not accept
that which has not been offered to me."
men ne oegan to lalK about the value
of farm lands he owns In St. Louis.
Buttermilk for Iloonlera.
To his guests from Indiana today Mr.
Bryan served buttermilk. This was the
result of a visit he made to Indlnn?.polls
some months ago. At that time he told
J. E. Hallct, president of the Indiana
Democracy club, when the club came to
Falrvlew he would serve buttermilk, the
national drink of Indiana. Today he was
reminded of that promise by a telegram
from Mr. Hallet and five large cans of
buttermilk were sitting out In the. vnrd
when the delegation reached Falrvlew.
Herbert H. Manson of Wisconsin came
along with that delegation to pour Into the
ears of the candidate the facts regarding
Timothy Ryan, whom he hopes to dcpos.i
as national committeeman.
The entire Wisconsin delegation, he staid
was for Bryan. P. H. Dunn of Main
who was a guest of the Rhode Island con
tingent, said Maine's votes were equally
divided for and against Mr. Bryan, but that
the opponent of Bryan wsuld be scored
Into the band wagon before the roll Is
called. Tom Mulhanney, secretary to
former Senator Spooner. was In the W Is
Borne energetic democrat today hung a
large painting of Bryan on a larif? build
ing nenr the Burlington depot. A number
of visitors failed to rcognlzo it and several
parties asked If it was a picture of James
Sherman, among this number being Gov
All for Bryan Bnt Rtrtiler.
At the end of three days cf visitation of
outelde. delegates the net result of their
leavings Is that Mr. Bryan will be the
whole thing at Denver. Not a single dele
gate, except Herman Rldder, has said a
word ag'ilnst the candidacy of Bryan and
not one had crossed him In his well known
views on the platform with the possible
exception of Tom Johnson, who wouldn't
talk about It. The delegates that have
been here represent the majority of the
convention and they have left the Impres
sion by what they said that Bryan can
name the vice president, write the platform
and select the national chairman. A big
bunch of Ltncolnltcs left tonight for
One of the features of the day was the
statement by Mayor Brown that if the
republican sta'o committee suspended a
picture of Toft over O street he would not
ask the convention to adjourn to Lincoln
after It nominated Bryan.

MITCHELL. S. D., July ..(Special)
Not before In the political history of the
state has a similar situation confronted the
leaders of the republican party as at the
present time, through the death of Colonel
William Parker, whose term In congress
would have expired In March, 19. It is
contended by one portion of the insurgent
wing of the republican party that Wilbur
S. Glass of Watertown ought to be named
for the unexpired term, notwithstanding the
fact that Mr. Glass was defeated In the
primary for the nomination. His friends In
the northern part of the state are pushing
him Into the limelight for the endorsement
of the republican convention In this city
July 14. Many of the Insurgents concede
that either E. W. Martin, who halls from
the western part of the state, or Charles
H. Burke, who received the highest num
ber of votes for the member of the house.
should be the logical successor to the va
cant congressional position. The primary
law does not yield the right of the state
convention to pick the successor of the late
Mr. Parker, In fact it Is silent on such a
situation, but the convention has the right
to Indicate Its choice. The proceedings fol
lowing will be just the t me as In the recent
primary a petition will have to be circu
lated and the candidate voted for at the
November election to fill the vacancy. It Is
claimed that If Martin or Burke are se
lected for the successor of Mr. Parker a
long step will be taken In the direction of
closing the breach between the factions of
the party. It might likewise lessen the
chances for the stalwarts to become luke
warm on the candidacy of Governor Craw
ford for the senate. It Is believed the state
convention will handle this situation In such
a manner as to relieve the governor being
endangered for his seat In the United States

Seventeen trainloads of democrats going
to the Denver convention, by way of Fair
view all except Tammany poured
through Omaha yesterday, beginning early
In the morning and continuing until mid
night. Tammany Hall, In four large trains
of Pullmans and baggage cars, had tha
largest single party and spent the longest
time In the city.
During the stay In Omaha the delega
tions and "delegates" from New York
City spent a quiet Sabbath morning. No
"hammers rung; no anvils beat," but the
members of Tammany went Immediately
to the Catholic churches of the city, as
J. J. Murphy, brother of Boss Murphy,
remarked, "The Lord Is on our side, but
we can bee no good excuse for exasperat
ing the devil by allowing him to find It
cut." A large number of the lelcgnteu
attended the services at St. Mary Magda
lene church, Nineteenth and Dodge streets,
where on orders of J. J. Murphy, each
delegate contributed a 15 gold pleco.
Only a few Dahlman democrats met th
Tammany specials, which were advertised
to arrive at 10 o'clock, but came In ahetd
of time over the Milwaukee and St. Paul,
Rock Island and Northwestern lines. Some
of the delegates spent two hours nt the
Dahtmnn club and others who did not care
to go to church were gtven c whirl about
the city In automobiles.
Not Zealous for Bryan.
Tammany was not very enthusiastic
about Bryan or anyone else. Only smil!
badges told that they were going to
national convention of their party. No
banners decorated the cars; no portraits
of the peerless ont filled the windows. The
600 seemtd like those who had marched
Into th3 valley of death too many times to
tare whether they marched there again or
not or like a hungry horde of followers
whose hearts have been sickened by the
hopeless ledlum of unpromising delav.
The delegates did not even regard each
other gingerly and those on one section
did not know nor care who was on the
others. They knew Big Tim Sullivan
Judge J. Walsh and J. J. Murphy were
with the party.
But one thing which they all seemed to
be agreed upon was that "Pat" McCarren
of Brooklyn is to be thrown out of the
convention and to enable Tammany to re
tain a llttl Influence "across the river" It
is likely that the whole noble 000 will boost
for Judge William J. Gaynor of Brooklyn
for vice president.
Chanler Out of the Race.
W. B. Murphy, private secretary to Lleu
tenant Governor Chanler, said he know
that Mr. Chanler was out of the race for
the vice presidency.
"The lieutenant governor told me before
I left that he was not to be considered as
a candidate In any sense," said Mr.
Murphy. "The lieutenant governor has
been prominently mentioned for the vice
presidency, but as a matter of fact he I

governor of New York and he will be

would waive his candidacy, realizing that
It was Stanton's turn. Randall ( not ad
