William Jennings Bryan gave his annuncia
tor a rest today. He gave out neither ulti
matum nor explanation, nor did ' he add
further to the blbllogy of the democratic!
party. This must not be taken to Indicate
that Mr. Bryan was Idle. Fur be It from
such. On the contrary, ho was the busy
little William all day long. From his office
t the Commoner lib poured Into the mall
chute a steady stream of circular letters,
each containing one or more of his recent
statements," with sonic added comment of
a mere or less hortative nature. He alsu
announced Ills aneaklnR dates for next

racy for county option. Ho will sneak at
the following places: Fjlia City, Monday
night; Beatrice, Tuesday; Hastings,
Wednesday, and at some point In the west

Talks In Lincoln First.
Mr. Bryan will make his first speech
for county option at the Lancaster county
convention Saturday afternoon. Just What
will happen at that convention cannot bo
foretold, tnougli It looks as though it will
be a Bryan nrfulr straight through. Some
of the democrats are trying to line up for
a fight, but It Is tho general belief that
these so-called war horses will content
themselves with refusing to go on the dele
gation to the state convention should
county option be endorsed. There seom
to be no doubt, however, thut a majority
of the delegates which will be In the county
convention are opposed to county option,
but many of them aro so intimately friendly
with Mr. Bryan that ' they will not fight
him in his home county. The delegates,
with the exception of the First ward, were
pelfted at' cancuitcs held tonight.
Mr. Bryan U taking no chances on what
the convention may do, for today he mailed
out to democrats over the county printed
copies of bis statement recently given to
the proas lu which he scored Governor
Shallenberger, Congressman Hltch'cock and
Mayor Dahlman and in which he advocated
county option. It ia probable that thesu
circulars will be mailed generally through,
out tho state to democrats, and enclosed
with them will be personal letters from Mr,
Bryan asking for supp' it.

I. H. Hatfield, who cliculuted the Bryan

he flics those petitions with the secretary

Mr. Bryan' has requested Mr. Hatfield to

on tha ballot. Mr. iiutricld said today ho
did not know what Ho v.old do, but that
he was Seriously consldei nig the matter,
if the papers are filed there must accom
