Viiibly Affected by Newi of the
Demonstration at Denver.
Takes Time Hannah Off from Political
to rrtf tar Bis Tea a Water

with HI Guests.
(Fmm ft S-'taff Corespondent.)
LINI OTA. Neh., .July . (Ppn Tel
egram.) W. J. liryan never In his life
probably ahowed more emotion upon the
receipt of political new than he did
when the i tory of the demonstration for
him at Denver was flashed over the wires
to Falrvlew. The news came after a
particularly quiet and uninteresting day.
"The democrat have been good to me."
he Bald with deep emotion In hU voice,
"and I cannot find worda with which to
xpreaa my appreciation of what tills
demons! ration means."
Mr. Bryan's voice was huaky when ho
Cave out the expression and he evi
denced In every way hla deep feeling; In
the matter. This demonstration, show
ing1 the absolute control of the conven
tion by Bryan, probably answers the
question whether he will no to Denver.
It Is figured here that he will go only
upon the urgent demand of the conven
tion that lie come to It rather than the
convention chine to him at Falrvlew.
When the demonstration began Mr. Bryan
and a dr.j'-n newspaper men, Robert F.
Rose. whi 's .Vr. nryan'a secretary. And the
telegrapher on the bulletin wire, occupied
the ru.i i i in. os the g'asa enclosed porch
la properly called. Five mlr-nites, ten min
utes pasted with the wire clicking off de
'alla of the acene. The candidate, In alpaca
fflee coat and vestless, smiled quietly at
he news, but left comments to hl visitors.
To a laughing question Mr. Bryan said:
'You credit me with too much Influence
with the convention."
"You wouldn't think so If you were
there," exclaimed Arthur F.ngllah, a West
'Irglr.ian, who Is an old friend of the Ne
caskan.' and had Just returned from
In hla offlce In another part of the house
Mother wire! removed from gaze, transacted
uch business as Mr. Bryan had with the
lelegates. This wire occupied, much of his
itentlon, and during much of the demon
stration he spent the time there with Mrs.
sryan and hla daughter Oraoe, both of
hom followed the bulletins with quick
Merest and keen sympathy.
During the day Mr. Bryan carved the
lis Texaa watermelon for the benefit of
hla guests. He read nil of the bulletins
from t'enver with great Interest, nut had
no comment to make for publication, sive
the statement above.
During the aftrrnroon Bailey Wagoner of
Kansas, general counsel of the Missouri
Pacific, waa In Lincoln, but so far" as
known ho did not see Mr. Bryan. Mr.
Wasc ner ' was reported to have given' out
a statement In Kansas llmt Bryan told
him he would not stand for Johnson for
second place- on the ticket. According to
A. 11 Talbot, local, attorney for the Mis
souri raclflc, this statement was denied
by Wagoner, though corroborated by Wag
oner's son. Mr. Wagoner went .to Omaha
tAni heie and will leave that city tonight
for Kansas.

DENVER. July .The committee on
credentials of tha- national democratic con
vents concluded Its labors shortly after
10 o'clock today, after having been In con
tinuous session since 6 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. No attempt was made to restrict
the time for the presentation of evidence In
the various contests, the proceedings In
which were all conducted with open doors.
The Idaho, Ohio and Pennsylvania cases
provoked much bitterness from the oppos
ing SldtS
Colonel James Guffey cf Pittsburg went
down to defeat before the committee In all
his contested cases, the contestants all
being seated by a vote of 2i to 15.
In the Idaho case, the Mormon faction
was put to rout, the committee deciding
In favor o'f the Dubois faction,, who were
seated as delegates by a vote of 36 to 20.
The Nineteenth Ohio district again was
given to Tom Jonnson of Cleveland, who
appeared In the committee room early this
morning and made a strong plea taat the
room earl
g plea tl
action of the national committee be sus
tained. The Ninth district anti-Johnson delegates
were allowed to retain their seats.
. MnlllTan Sustained.
The committee made short work of the
Nw York, Illinois and District of Columbia
contests, unanimously sustaining the action
of the national committee In each case,
which In the case of Illinois seats the Sul
livan delegates.
The fight of Oklahoma for eighteen dele
gates Instead of fourteen resulted In a
victory for the new state. The claim of
Oklahoma was based on the allegation that
there had been an Incorrect apportionment
of the districts and the committee ac
ceptd that view. t
The Importance of the result of the
night's work lies In the effect which the
decision of the committee might have upon
doubtful delegates or upon those whose
acton ls controlled simply by specific In-
at ructions of the conventions which elected
them and who might welcome a pretext
for evading those Instructions. It was an
open secret, late last night and this morn
ing that the elements opposed to the noml
nation of William J. nryan for the presi
dency based practically their last hope of
success upon the rather remote possibility
that drastic action of the credentials com
mittee, more especially In the Pennsylvania
cases, might provoke a revolt among dele
gates none too cordial In their acceptance
of pro-Bryan Instructions and sweep Into
the anti-Bryan camp a number sufficient
to give them the one more than one-third
of the convention necessary to prevent
Bryan's nomination. Failing that, It was
all but conceded that Bryan's nomination
has become what many have never ques
tioned, a certainty.
Pleat Over Credentials.
There were other aspects of this matter
which were freely discussed last night
and this morning. One was the effect
either way of the decision of the credentials
committee, and of the convention in the
Idaho cases. There, politically speaking,
lay a very serious dilemma, as both sides
of the controversy admitted. The con
testants represented In considerable meas
ure. It was said, the Mormon Interests in
Idaho and the vote of that large element
was In a measure at stake. The sitting
delegation repudiated all proposals In the
direction of compromise and It was clear
that whichever was the committee and after
the committee, the convention, might throw
Its decision, the political effect would be
Important. ,
In similar vein was couched the appeal of
State Senator Patrick II. McCaren of
Brooklyn for the seating of his delegates,
which were unseated by the spring state
convention held In New York City, not
withstanding, according to the claim of
MeCarren, the fact that they had been
the undoubted choice of the voters of the
party at the primary election.
In a vehement argument before the com
mittee. Senator MeCarren pointed out that
even with all elements In the party united
It would be exceedingly difficult for the
democrats to carry New York state this
fall; that the state was essential to the
election of democratic candidate for the
presidency and that the constituency of
Brooklyn, famously jealous of Its rights,
would retaliate for an Injustice to them
In a fashion which no leadr, however
powerful, would be able to forestall.
Coler Tries Treachery.
On the other hand, former Comptroller
Bird S. Coler, scathingly attacked Mc
Cat ten, alleging that he and ex-IJeutenant
Governor William F. Sheehan and National
Committeeman Ouffey of Pennsylvania
were now In Denver engaged In a con
spiracy to accomplish the defeat of the
democratic party; that MeCarren was
"tied hand and' feet" to the republican
bosses In Brooklyn, under personal obliga
tion to them and had himself brought
about the defeat of William R. Hearst two
years ago. when tho latter was the reg
ular democratic candidate for governor of
New York state. He further attributed
'baneful effects upon the party" to the
Cleveland memorial resolutions offered In
the convention yesterday by ex-Judge
Alton B. Parker, and he alleged that Me
Carren was behind that, too.
A similar allegation waa brought In con
nection with the Chicago cases against the
newly re-elected national committeeman,
Koger C Sullivan of Illinois, who waa
charged by the Opposition with being the
political ally of the republican sttate leader,
Senator Albert J. Hopkins.
The Pennsylvania cases, involving the
membership of Colonel James M. Ouffay
of Pittsburg tn tho national committee af
forded a sensational episode in the open
tng session of the convention yestefday.
when the case was referred by Temporary
Chairman Eell by sheer power of the
gavel, to the credentials committee, In
spite of vociferous demands of Colonel
Guffey and his associates for a vote on
the subject then and there. The denial
of a roll call by the chairman was th
subject of much discussion among the dele
gates after the adjournment ot the con
vent ion. and it was made plain that when
the matter comes before the convention on
the report of the credentials committee, the
outcome will be anything but a foregone
Bryaa on Rrsolatloa.
Meanwhile the comr.iittee on resolutions
and later the subcommittee to which the
platform was finally referred, was having
a protracted meeting. The full committee
remained in session until after 1 a. m,
and heard arguments In favor of many
proposed planks; then It adjourned until
t p. m.. today, leaving the subcommittee
to wrestle with the problem in detail. The
feature of the subcommittee meeting was
the reading by Governor Haskell of Okla
homa, chairman of the full committee, for
more than an hour, ot suggestions direct
from Mr. Bryan as to planks on various
subjects, which he desired the committee
to embody In the platform, or at least to
consider for It. These suggestions cover

lo the situation to discourage definite ar
rangements and combinations. There is a
li.rge number of candidates in eight. Gray
ti Delewaro. Mitchell of Illinois, Kern of
Iidlana. Towne and Harrison of New York,
Howell of Georgia and a hst of others run
ning down all the way from "favorite
sons," for whom the complimentary vote
ot the state delegation is expected to be
cist, tc the "also mentioned," some of
whom have hardly more backing than that
i rganUed under their own hats.
The New York state delegation, which
ui til now has emulated the characteris
tically sphynx-llke silence of ts chieftain
ltfcder Murphy of Tammany Hid, will hold
a caucus at 4 p. m. today the third since
Us arrival here and it is hoped that it will
then make some decision as to Us attitude
tiward the presidential nomination. At
'.hat time it Is possible that tho delegation
1 .ay act also upon the; matter of a mem-
bor of lie national committee to succeed
Normal E. Mack of Buffalo. Indications
multiply that Mr. Mack will be re-elected.
On the formal program for today the main
features is the address of Representative
Henry D. Clayton of Alabama, who ls ex
pected to be chosen as permanent chairman
of the convention. While yesterday's ses
sion was adjourned as a mark of respect to
the memory of the late ex-President Grover
Cleveland, the adjournment did not. In fact,
defer any of the business of the conven
tion. 8uch measure of delay as pertains to
the convention is now due to the postpone
ment of action upon the platform by the
committee on resolutions. Whether this or
the conflict over the seating of delegates in
the contested cases shall. In fact, defer
final adjournment, remains to be seen.
Gavel of Historic .Wood.
Durirjg today's session of the convention,
gavel will be presented to Permanent
Chairman Clayton which came from the old
home of Andrew Jackson In Tennessee. It
was sent to William J. Bryan by former
Governor Benton McMUlen of Tennessee
with the following letter:
NASHVILLE, Tenn.. July 1. 1908. This
gavel was made from hickory obtained by
me from the Hermitage, home of Andrew
Jackson and Is for use at the democratic
national convention of 1pu8.
Tha gavel was sent by Mr. Bryan to
Denver for use by Mr. Clayton when he
became permanent chairman of the conven
tion. Last night was a wild night in Denver,
the western exuberance adding flavor and
vim to the growing enthusiasm to the con
vention crowds. People of the Colorado
metropolis are leaving nothing undone In
the way of entertainment of their visitors,
and a perfect summer evening, than which
even Denver never saw a loviler, helped
matters along.
The crowds were on the street singing,
laughing and full of good natured fun, until
far Into the morning, and a half doxen
bands, some of them traveling about in
illuminated street cars filled the night with
music which sometimes got pretty compli
cated, as for instance when two bands, or
sometimes three, within the space of 100
yards or even In the, same hotel rotunda
ploughed through different tunes. In dif
ferent keys, each oblivious of tha other.
A cloudless sky again smiled upon the
scene when the day opened, but It promises
to be hot today and the delegates will have
an opportunity to see how a hut day In the
Denver convention hall compares with the
stifling, sweltering atmosphere which well
nigh smothered them four years ago in St.
Gar&ela ttore to Oregon.

This was but the prelude to a contest of
Intense bitterness on the floor of the con
vention today, as Colonel Guffey and his
lieutenants Immediately announced their
determination to fight to the last ditch.
It was not alone a personal fight, but one
to some extent Involving he presidential
nomination Itself, for if Guffey should be
finally and decisively unhorsed before the
convention today It means that the one
rallying point of the anti-Bryan forces had
gone to pieces; whereas a Guffey fight on
the floor of the convention means the first
show down" cf a roll call between the
two contesting elements Bryan and antl
Bran. Here, then, was to be the first
alignment which might force New York
Into the open and compel other wavering
delegations to show their colors.

Colonel Guffey was fairly stunned when
word was brought to him of the action of
the committee. "Can It be possible," said
he, "that this disfranchisement of men rep
resenting the sovereign state of Pennsyl
vania, men holding certification under the
, great seal of the commonwealth, has delib-
trately taken place?"
The report of what had been done was
laid before Colonel Guffey by John M.
Garman. former democratic state chairman
of Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania members
of the credentials committee. All night h?
had stood at the door of the committee
room, refused a place owing to the pending
contest, but always on guard, without food
or relief, through the early morning hours
until the final action was taken. His
summary of the situation to Colonel Guffey
was this:
"Eight of our Phlladephla delegates have
been unseated and eight contestants put
In their place. Prior to this action the
Pennsylvania vote stood 324 for Guffey to
2'.H for Kerr. But taking off the eight
Philadelphia delegates and adding the
eight contestants gives Kerr Sihi votes to
Guffey's 32V4 votes, with Uoyall net vot-
Ing as he refuses to take sides. Tie
selection of Colonel Guffey as chairman
of the national committee Is referred back
to the Pennaylvanla delegation, whle h
means that If the credentials committee re
port ls sustained by the convention the
antl-Guffey forces will make a new selec
tion for a national committeeman, from
Ready to Fight on Floor.
Immediately steps were taken to carry
the contest to the floor of the convention,
and Colonel Guffey Issued the following
formal protest:
"Pennsylvania's delegates came to this
convention, elected under the statutes ot
Pennaylvanla, their election being certified
not alone by the commissioners of the dis
trict, but by the secretary of the common
wealth of Pennsylvania. Not a shadow of
complaint was made as to any of these
delegates. This delegation was certified to
the national committee by the chairman
and secretary of the state of Pennsylvania.
Notice of contests In a few districts were
filed with the national committee. A sub
committee of the national committee was
appointed, and a full and absolute hearing
given these contestants.
"The subcommittee reported unanimously
In favor of tha certified delegation. The
national committee, as a body, unanimously
adopted the report of the subcommittee and
this action made the report of Pennsylvania
In the the preliminary organisation abso
lute. Nothing could question their right to
sit and participate In the business of the
convention. The delegation prior to the
meeting of the convention, caucused for the
purpose of organisation, forty-seven out of
a total of sixty-eight participants.
Resralarlty Claimed. '
"I waa made chairman of the delegation
and members of the various committees
for the convention were appointed. I was
elected a member of the national commit
tee. Notwithstanding all this regularity,
the temporary chairman of the national
committee refused to permit Pennsyl
vania's. delegation to take part in tha de
liberations of the convention or Its com
mittees, thereby disfranchising the sov
ereignty of a great state."

been given publicity. Both sets of sugges
tions were received without discussion by
members of the committee and no action
was taken as to any of the planks.
Governor Swanson of Virginia presented
a plank entitled "The Degeneracy of the
House of Representatives," which he read
with the comment that he believed It would
be a decidedly popular Issue to bring to
the front. The plank recited that the house
had become to be dominated absolutely by
the speaker and pledged the party to Such
an amendment of Its rules as would rem
edy the evil complained of. Mr. Swanson
declared that there was not a congressional
district In the country to which it had not
been reported' by its representatives In con
gress that he was unable because of the
position of the speaker to obtain results for
tho particular measure or measures he had

Ex-Governor Thomas of Colorado pre
sented a plank which he said was destined
to unite In Its support both the western
cattle and sheepmen opposed to the present
administration of the forest reserve regu

who favor It. He also offered an Injunction
plank, drawn, he said, by one of the best
lawyers of the west.
After receiving this mass of material for
the platform, and being assured by other
members of the subcommittee that they had
other planks to offer, the commttee re
cessed until 9 o'clock this morning.

continuing for the time the reception of
suggestions, listened to tha re-adlng of a pro
posed plank by llobert D. Inman of Oregon,
which Is lniended to cover the exclusion of
Japanese coolie labor, of which the follow
ing ls the text:
Oriental laborers are within our borders
In vast atjd Increasing numbers, especially
on the Pacific coast. They are being em-
pluyed by the tens nf thousands In every

and depriving American cltlsens of the

prevent further immigration of oriental
laborers Into the United States. .
Mr. Inman la the only representative of
the Pacific coast on the sub-committee,
and he presented the plank In the Interest
of all the coast states.
The plank proposed by Mr. Inman waa
apparently received with much favor by the
sub-coramlttoe and It Is generally believed
that It will go Into the platform.
Mr. Inman also presented the following:
Our western coast has been woefully neg
lected In the matter of coast defenses. We
believe that for the protection of our peo
ple and their vast and rapidly Increasing
commercial Interests on the Pacific, It ls
Imperative that the Atlantic fleet, now
