LINCOLN. July 7. (Special) William J.
Hryao this afternoon In statement No. S
set the rollers tinier democratic Senators
Kannom, Howell, Tanner, Buck, Klein,
Dartos. V'olpp and Bess because they
failed to vote for tlia Inlliatlva and refer
endum during the late legislature and he
auggesta thnt the constltutents of these
senators keep the rollers moving.
Senator Buhrman come In for a side
rwlpe for voting against the proposition
luring ttie regular session, but gets pract)
uti forglvenesa for agreeing to vote "yes"
o the extra session which the governor
bailed to call. Explanations are offered
f Volpp and Besse, because they said they
would vote "yes" If thela constituents told
'hem to. '
When he made reference to Volpp Mr.
liryan was not In possession of th fact
that Volpp remarked that If the peerless
leader secured enough signatures from his
constituents to constitute a majority of the
votes cant for him he (Volpp) would de
mand In addition that he also be supplied
from each signer with an affidavit that he
Is a democrat and will vote the democratic
ticket next November,
Mr. Bryan's Aiitkrai,
Mr. Bryan's statement Is as follows:
"Tho primary will soon be here, and as
candidates are already entering upon their
canvass, It behoove tha democrats of the
state to know the views of those who as
pire to office. We have 100 rundred repre
sentatives and thirty-three snatcrs to elect
to the legislature, and every candidate
should be put on record upon the question'
at Issue. No tanlld-ate Is deserving of demo
cratic support unless he believes that a
platform Is binding. A platform which Is
not binding Is a fiaud upon the public,
and the man who repudiate a platform
after he Is elected upon It is an cmbexzler
of power. ,
"Next to believing In platforms comes
the securing of a platform that rtprewarrts
the wishes of the voters. On national ques
tions th& demiMrata of .Nebraska are agreed;
as they have tcn for mure than fifteen
yeah;; ' but as there are differences of
opinion on state o. it Is necessary that
these ahull be given careful consideration
and that the platform ou all of these ques
tions shall be clear and represent the sen
timent of tha voters. Theie Is one issue
to which special attention ought to be
called at thin time. If Is the Issue repre
sented In the Initiative and referendum,
gas it la laanlasoos.
"The sentiment In fsvor of this is prac
ticslly unanimous among democrats, and
jet In the lust legislature a few democratic
senators assumed the responsibility of de
feating the initiative and referendum reso
lution. This resolution had the support of
the democratic governor, of nearly all the
democratic members of the house and of
mora than half of the democratic members I
of tbe senate, but In spite of this indorse
ment of a fundamental democratic doctrine
the following democratic senstors voted
against the resolution: Ransom, Howell,
Tanner, Buck, Klein. Buhrman, Bartos,
Volpp nnd Beese. " If four of these had
voted for tha resolution tha amendment
would have been aubmitted and the liquor
question would not now be acute.
'The democratic votera in the districts
represented, or misrepresented, as the case
may be, by tha above-named senators, are
to decide whether these gentlemen gave cx
prutaion to the sentiment of their constit
uents. Since the adjournment of the leg
islature a democratic state convention the
convention of l'.uo has unanimously In
dorsed the Initiative and referendum, and
there is no djubt that the coming state
convention Willi do likewise. Yet In spits
of tills positive indorsement of this demo
cratic reform by a state convention, iSena
' tots I'.ansom, Howell. Tanner, Buck, Klein
and Jiailos recently declared that they
would vote agulntt the resolution again it
a special session were called. Senator
Buhrman. who voted no at the regular
aesslon, announced tHat If a special setslon
was called bo would vote yet. Senators
Volpp and Bessa, who voted no during the
first ss,luu. announced that they: would
votf no again unless their constituents
asked them to vote yes. Senator Tibbetla,
who voted yes at the regular session, re
fused to ssy how he would vote at a special
Mast (io , oa v ltecord.
"This lsue ought to be discussed in every
senatorial and legislative district, and every
democratic candidate ought to be com- i
pe lied to announce himself on the proposl
l.ou. No man is entitled to democratic

OYSTL'K BAY. July 7.-Forecasts of to-
ay a conference at Sagamore win were
upst by the personnel of the delegation
hlch arrived.
Colonel Roosevelt said 'yesterday that
Senator Beverldge was to be here, and a
umber of other men who were affiliated
more or less closely with the progressive
movement In the republican party, whose
names he would not divulge.
The Impression was that several other
men from the middle west would be here.
The presence of three men from New
Hampshire and one from Montana puxxled
political observers.
In particular the visit of Senator Carter
could not be understood. "The senator from
Montana has been one of the righi-hand
men of Senator Aldrich and has conalitent.y
opposed tha insurgency movements. He
had no word to say when he got here as to
why he had come to Oyster Bay on this
occasion. It was observed, however, that
when the party drove off for Sagamore
Hill Senator Carter was in a carriage by
Fovlke First Arrlpal.
William Dudley Foulke of Indiana came
down from New York last night. Mr.
Foulke was a civil service commissioner by
appointment of Mr. Roosevelt, and on sev
eral occasions when the then president
wished to make a public statement of a
political nature he did so by writing an
open letter to Mr. Foulke.
A delegation of visitors to Colonel Roose
velt arrived from New fork on the noon
train. . Ttiera vers six In the party, two of
whom wero United States Senators Bever-

Carter Talks of Interview.
NEW YORK, July 7. Senator Carter, on
bis return from Sagamore Hill, said that
while his visit was not a political one, he
bad given the colonel considerable 'Infor
mation about the situation In the west.
"I assured . him," sakl Senator Carter,
that the alleged divisions In the west were
greatly exaggerated and that many of us
were trying to attain the same ends through
different methods.
Senator Carter said he had assured Col
onel Roosevelt that the strength of the In
aurgent movement In the northwest had
been overestimated. The senator was asked
If there was any possibility of a branch
between President Taft and Colonel Roose
velt, and he replied:
1 can see no danger of it. Mr. Roose
velt will probably have more of a soothing
Influence than any other.".

WASHINGTON. July 7. Director Fred
erick H. Newell of the reclamation service,
whose differences with Secretary of the
Interior Ballinger have created general
comment, returned to Washington today
from New York, where it waa understood
he talked yesterday with former President
The unusual reticence of the director con
cerning his New York visit lends color to
the report that one of the objects of his
trip was to consult, with Colonel Roosevelt
concerning the friction with the secretary
of the interior, over the administration of
the reclamation service. He refused to ad
mit or deny that he had had conference
with the former president.
Mr. Newell said he had conferred in Bal
timore and New York with B. N. Baker,
president of the second national conserva
tion congress, which will be held In St.
Paul September S to . The program, he
said, would be submitted to both President
Taft and former President Roosevelt for
their approval.

NEW YORK. July T. The gold importa
tiou movement of 1910 had Its Inception
today with the engagement of $1.7U),000 In
gold bars In I-ondon by Lazard Freres for
Import to the United States. Imports of
gold were forecasted by the demands made
on New York institutions by western

sold large amounts of American securities
abroad, and are now availing themselves
of credits to strengthen their own posltlo

LONDON, July 7. American and contl
nertal inquiries fon gold have- effectually

to maintain the S per .cent rate, although
dealing on that basis at th present rate of
exchange represents a loss.
The engagement of $2,000,009 of Cape gold
for Germany reported this morning is gen
erally accepted as correct and the handling
or Donas here should enable New York to
take considerable gold. There soon will be
in the neighborhood of $3,750,000 available
In the open market, and at least a portion
is expected to be purchased for New York.
