cheered the democratic leader aa he made
his way from the hall. Bryan planned
to leave for Baltimore on a 1:30 train.
"We have been greatly honored." said
Fairbanks when ths excitement had died
down, "with the presenco of several of
our friends in political opposition, some
of whom have business now in Balti

Porto Ricsn plank had been overlooked
in ths report ot the committee. He was
