DENVER. July t William J. Bryan
views a to what the democratic platform
should contain are fully btfore the sub
committee charard by the convention with
the work of drafting that dcx ument. Gov
ernor Haskell of Oklahoma, chairman of
the resolution committee and cf the sub
committee, spent more than an hour during
xh early houra of the mornlr.g reading to
the group of men who constitute the sub
committee what Mr. Bryan had written in
the form of planks and what he had tele-
graphed to the governor as suggestions for
planks, th particularly phraseology being
,eft to ,ne committee. hould It be deemed
wise to Incorporate the suggestions.
Mr. Bryan's views on the injunction
plank as thus transmitted are that the
plenk should begin with the statement that
the party resents any attempted reflection
upon the Judiciary of the country; tht
not only are the courts themselves created
by law, but their jurisdiction and
authority are defined by law as well as
their rules of proceedure.
Notice Before Iajaontion.
The position of the party on thl sub
ject In the platforms of IKA. 1300 and 1904
Is to be endorsed; the further provision
mad that In contempt cases the trial la to
be before any Judge other than the on
Issuing the writ, and most Important the
plank I to declar for the re-enactment of
the federal law, requiring notice to be
given before such preliminary Injunctions
shall Issue, precisely as It existed prior to
Mr. Bryan made a subsequent ui?gestlon
for this plank to the effect that it might
be well to provide that no Injunction or
restraining order shall remain in force for
a period longer than three days and that
the hearing on uch order shall be before
Mr. Bryan also believe an expression
should be made to the effect that circuit
and district courts should not have the
power to suspend the rights of the state;
that the right of appeal in such cases
In his currency plank suggestion, Mr.
Bryan asserts that the treasury funds were
used as an emergency aid to force through
congress a bill, which has failed to give
protection to the 15.000,000 depositor ot the
country. The belief Is expressed that the
needs of congress require an emergency
currency; that such a currency should be
Issued and controlled by the federal gov
ernment and loaned to national and state
banks under proper guarantee.
We favor the postal savings bank If the
i-uarantee bank cannot be secured," la th
termination of thl proposed plank and Mr.
Bryan made It clear to the commute that
thl qualifying language should b used
In the endorsement of the postal savings
MIism of Pa.troBa.re."
Another plank which Mr. Bryan ha ug-
gested In confidence to the subcommittee,
but concerning which he expresses aom
doubt as to the wisdom of It promulga-
llun. is headed "the misuse of patronage.'
It "condemns as a violation of the spirit of
our institutions the action of tbe chief
executive to secure ths nomination of one
of his cabinet officers."
The plank continues: "To force a sue
cession in the presidency is scarcely less
repugnant than life tenure In that office
and tends to the establishment of
The plank contlues with the statement
that the democratic party stands for the
right of the people freely to select their
officials, that the democratic party stands
for democracy, while the republican party
Is the party of private monopoly.
On the tariff question the suggestion I
made that the position of the party be for
revision on the basis of tariff for only suf
ficlent revenue to support the government.
levied with special attention to the neces
titles of life, impartially as to all sections
of the country and so a not to afford
monopolistic protection to any Industry.
The attitude of the democrat in congress
I to be endorsed with reference to the
newc print paper question.
Aa Adeqaate Slsvy,
On the subject ot tne navy Mr. Bryan
cautions the committee to be careful not
to endorse a "large navy." "An adequate
navy," he says, "Is as far as we can go.
He has no objection to a plank endorsing
state ml'iitias. but prefers It to be In the
language of Thoma Jefferson on that
subject: "A well disciplined militia Is our
best recognised defense."
If a plank could be drawn on th lights
of th negro that would be unanimously
acceptable Mr. Bryan would not object
to It. but he would not want to fore such
a plank In the platform.
Suggestions of Mr. Bryan which follow
closely th Nebraska state platform, re
late to the plank on the conciliation of
capital and labor; amendment to the anti
trust law; the extension of the eight-hour
law to include all government employes as
well as government 'contractors and sub
contractors: a general employers' liability
ct; the separation of the Department of
Labor; a bureau of mines and mining, and
a department of public health, with a
competent physician at Its head; the regu
lation of Asiatic immigration, and diplo
matic understandings whereby greater re
spect shsll be accorded abroad to an Aemrl
can passport; the sdmlsslon of Arizona and
New Mextco as separate states, and the
welcoming of Oklahoma as a sister state,
and for Porto Rico a full territorial govern
ment; the reclamation of arid and swamp
lands and the protection of the forests;
tbe construction of the Panama canal ;th
development of the interior waterway and
the continuance of the pension policy; a
guarantee of Independence for the Philip
pines and a pledge not to use the navy for
the collection of private debts; the public
land plank 1 to declare a regard for the
right of the people of the states as well
as for th general policy of the right of
Pledae of Economy.
Mr. Bryan suggest th advisability of
plank setting forth the alleged extrava
gance of th republican administration and
pledging th democratic party to economy;
also a strong plank on campaign publicity.
A to Alaska, bis suggeatlon I that any
declaration on which the Washington and
Oregon member may agree upon will be
satisfactory to him. Aftr Governor Haakell
had read to th ubcommltte all of th
suggestions and messages from Mr. Bryan

PLAGUE EXISTS-IN CARACAS

CARACAS. (Saturday) June ?7. At last
Caracas officially has the plague and the
credit for having finally brought this sad
confession from the government Is due to
the initiative shown by the German min
ister. Baron De Seikendorff, who presented
a note to Minister of Foreign Affairs Paul,
asking official information for his govern
ment a to the presence of the bubonic
plague In this capital.
Minister of Foreign Affair Paul, in his
answer to Baron De Seckendorff, dated
June 24, says that there have been twelve
cases In Caracas, but that Severn days have
now passed without any new ones. He
said: "From the date on mhlch the sani
tary commission wn formed, April 26. there
have been twelve cases of plague In thl
capital, authenticated by clinical examina
tion and some of them bacterlologlcaily. Of
those case three have been cured, two
are under treatment and seven have died,
most of th latter because of the cases
being discovered In advanced stages. The
last case was on June IB In Caracas.
' Bhould also advise yor excellency that
the government has dictated all of the pre
ventive measures which the threatening
epidemic demands and anti-pest prophy
lactic and serums, as well as disinfec
tants have been ordered In sufficient quan
tities to check the disease In Its lncipiency.
No new cases of the plague has been re
ported at La Gualra for seven days."

which has been, generally misunderstood, is
merely a preliminary skirmish.
This was not a formal demand for the

of the removal last week by the court of

Maltre Bonnet, counsel for the count, yes
terday afternoon petitioned the court to
relndorse his client' right to retain Jay
temporarily on account of the child' Ill

receiving at Versailles during the absence
of his mother.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DENVER. Colo.. July S.-(9peclai Tele
gram.) Far and away the blsgt demon
stratkin made by any delegation of vlsitots j
or representatives of favorite sons during
the convention was that pulled off at noon
today by the Dahlman Demorcacy of
Omaha, the Lincoln Bryan club and the
Bryan Volunteers of Nebraska. Other dele,
gallons have paraded the streets, marched
through the lobbies of the hotels and re
ceived their share of the Impartial applause
that the convention crowd has on hand for
anybody who wants to start something, but
the Nebraska turnout created about the
warmest bit of enthusiasm that has marked
the proceedings outside convention hall thus
With bands playing and banners flying
the procession marched from the Welcome
arch to the Brown hotel, the democratic
headquarters. Each man carried a parasol
of patriotic colore, with Bryan and Dahl
man banners. It was the first parade to
maintain much semblance of marching or
der and the crowd took up the cheers and
gave the Nebr&skans a warm ovation all
along the line.
There were perhaps 250 to 3n0 men In lino
when the parade started, but every Ne
braskan In town apparently Insisted upon
getting Into the fun and the final result
was a parade that seemed to be participated
In by all of the convention visitors.
Of course It was originally a Bryan dem
onstration, so far a the outward appear
ance went, but when the crowd marched
Into the Brown hotel and Mayor "Jim ap
propriately posed In the first balcony and
bowed his welcome, the demonstration
quickly developed Into a Dahlman guberna
torial hurrah. The visitors did not under
stand what It was all about, and cared
less, but they joined Into making It a dem
onstration bigger than that which has been
shown to any distinguished or near dis
tinguished statesman, and bigger than any
one will get unless Mr. Bryan should he
prevailed upon to come out from Fairvlew
and see how well the work he ordered has
been carried out.
Other Candidate Rosy.
While the surface Indications are all for
the Dahlman boom, the other aspirants for
Governor Sheldon's shoes are not sleeping.
Mr. Shallenberger has been lining up the
state visitor and doing a lapel hunting
stunt that Is a masterpiece of its kind. He
Is making no claim, but remarks pleasantly
that the primaries will be held In Ne
braska and not In Colorado and that when
the return are In It will be found that
voters may be captured by other means
than a lariat. Berge Is also exceedingly
busy, very hopeful and slightly confident.
He Insist that Nebraska democrats will
want to have an accounting yet over that
campaign fund of 1904 and that they will
not hold him responsible for something he
didn't get He' promises to have something
to say later on that subject that will make
an Omaha candidate wish that he had
acted as paying rather than receiving
C. O. Lobeck got by the washout and
offered a new proposition today Just to let
hi rival aspirants for the governor nomi
nation know that he is working on the
Job. In the mlxup over the vice presi
dential fight, Mr. Lobeck suddenly discov
ered that the crying need of the country
was a Scandinavian for vice president. He
found him In the person of Claude Swan
son, governor of Virginia, and proceeded
promptly to launch the Saanson boom.
The plan took pretty well for a time. W.
H. Thompson of Grand Island seconding
Lobeck's motion and the word was passed
around among the delegates, who have
been hoping and looking for some compro
mise candidate. The boom flattened out
and when It was discovered later In the
day that Governor Swanson Is not an ad
mirer of Bryan and has no traxe of Scan
dinavian blood In his vein, but th name
sounded good to Lobeck and furnishes as
surance to his fellow Scandinavians in Ne
braska that he la doing the best he can
under the circumstances. W. H. H.

taken this morning when a number of Lin
coln business men began the circulation of
petition to the republican state central
committee that It be taken down.
John T. Kent, chairman of the local
democratic reception committee, declared
to the Associated i'resa that the city ordi
nances against street signs might be in
voked to bring down the obnoxious banner,
but said the republicans would be given
an opportunity to exhibit their local pride
before drastic action was taken.
Chairman Hayward of the republican
state central committee, defends the action
of hit committee purely on Olitital ground

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DENVER. Colo., July 8-t8pecial Tele
gram.) Two features of today's convention
proceedings indicate the situation on the
eve of the nomination of Bryan. The Bryan
demonstration, which started at the first
mention of his name In a speech designed
for time-killing purposes and delivered by
Senator Uore of Oklahoma, gave th demo
crats of the nation notice that Bryan' dom
ination of the party Is complete, arrogant
and uncompromising. The second, and
really more significant feature was the sul.
len acquiescence of tha antl-Bryan force in
the domination of the majority.
All show of opposition to Bryan has been
withdrawn, but the men who were opposed
to him have decided to make none but mute
protests against Bryan's refusal to consldur
their claim. Tammany, ths New Tork sup
porters of Judge Parker, the Delaware
boomers of Gray, the Kern supporters In
Indiana and the old gold democrats, who
sent ex-Governor Francis of Missouri to
the convention bearing the olive branch,
have become so thoroughly disgruntled over
the situation that they have unanimously
agreed to let Bryan go as far a he likes,
but they have reserved tha right to refuso
to help him, although they no longer op
pose him. Bryan understands the situation
Through his brother, Charley, and his
brother-in-law, Tommy Allen, he has made
all kinds and deacrlpttons of overture to
the New Y'orkcrs. He has appealed to Tam
many leaders to name the vice presidential
candidate, agreeing to support any man
Boss Murphy may pick out, but Tammany,
in sullen resent fulness, has refused to vole
the suspicion of a preference.
No Help from Conserve tlvea.
The attitude of the conservative eastern
democrats Is tantamount to a notice to
Bryan that he need expect nothing from
them In the way of support In either July
The credentials committee ha done a
beautiful job of operating the road machine
and In Its path Is not an obstruction of any
kind to Bryan's complete domination of
everything. All the suggestions made with
the adoption of the Cleveland resolutions
that the party was to bury In a new grave
all Its past dissensions, all factional dis
cords, all local war and all prlyat
hatchets, for whomsoever designed, were
wept away by the report of the credential
committee In which evtry man who baa
had the temerity to oppose Bryan waa
knocked down and run over. The knlvei
are bein sharpened again and there Is
brine in all of the old sore. It ha been
a repetition of the old democratic program
of holding a peace talk Just befor th war
dance. The conservative hav been
burned at the stake and th scalping is the
next number on the program.
The man at the telegraph key at Fair
view really runt the convention, taking
Bryan's dlctallcn. This was demonstrated
at duyliglit this morning, when Governor
Haakell of Oklahoma told tho resolutions
committee, which had been in session for
a dozen hours, Just what Bryan wanted
on the antl-lnjunctlon plank. Representa
tives of the American Federation of Labor,
of the Amerlcm Manufacturers' association
and of all the various big, conservative
democrats of the country had pleaded with
the committee or filed their briefs.
Notice of Mine Owner.
James Burns, the largest single stock
holder of the Portland mine, and repre
sentative of the mine owners In the west,
served notice on the committee that a
radical antl-lnjunctlon plank would mean
the united opposition of the 8,000 business
men In Colorado who ar interested in
mining and would destroy all hop of dem
ocrutic success In any western state.
When all of these arguments had been
offered. Governor Haskell gav out the
Lran platform. Mr. Bryan view on the
injunction plunk aa thus transmitted aje
that the plank should begin with th state
ment that the party resents any attempted
reflection upon the Judiciary of th coun
try, that not only ar the courts them
telves created by law, but thair jurisdiction
and authority are defined by law, as well
u their rule of procedure. Th 'position
of the party on this subject in th plat
forms of 1890, 1900 and 1904 la to be en
dorsed, the further provision mad that In
contempt cases the trial 1 to be befor
any Judge other than th one issuing the
writ, and most Important, th plank is to
declare for the re-enactment of th federal
law requiring notice to be given be lore
such preliminary Injunction shall lasue,
precisely as It existed prior to 1878.
Mr. Bryan made a subsequent suggestion
for this plank to the effect that it might
be well to provide that no injunction or
restraining order shall remain in fore for
a period longer than three days, and that
the hearing on such order shall be before
two judges. This Is not so radical a plank
as the extreme labor advocate want, but
it 1 extremely radical from the viewpoint
ot the conservatives.
With the Bryan endorsement It la cer
tain to be passed by the convention, leav
ing the breach In the party rank as wide
as it was made by th free alive plank
In the 1 plutform. The Bryanltes hav
become so drunk with their Joy of running)
the machine thaj it I doubtful if even
word from Fa.rvlew would be potent
enough at this time to prevent the adon
tlon of an antl-lnjunctlon plank which the
general country will regard a extremely
On every other proposition befor th
country the Bryan platform, aa sent from
Fairvlew, Is of the advanced radical type,
containing nothing to Indicate that the
Bryan of lS Is a "new Bryan." He I th
same Bryan that got into the national
limelight one hot day In Chicago twelve
years ago. W. H. H.
