Wilson Upholds Bryan.
..Governor Wilson's telegram to Mr.
BryaH in reply to the latter's appeal yes
terday to sever all of the democratic
presidential candidates was given out
here by the Wilson national campaign
' The Wilson reply was as follows:
"You are right Before hearing of your
message I clearly stated my position in
answer to a question from the Baltimore
Evening Sun. The Baltimore convention
is to be the convention of progressives
Vio men whn nr nrneressive in Drlnciole
and by conviction. If it is not to be put
in a wrong light before the country it
must express its convictions in its or
ganization and in its choice of the men
who are to speak for It. Tou are to be
a member of the conventions and are
entirely within your rights in doing
everything within your power to bring
that result about.
"No one will doubt where my sympa
thies He and you will, I am sure, find
jny friends in the convention acting upon
a clear conviction and always in the in
terest of the people's cause. I am happy
in the confidence that they need no sug
gestion from me."
Little Encouragement In Answer.
Those national committeemen aligned
with Judge Parker analyzed the replies
of the candidates to Mr. Bryan's note
and declared the Nebraska leader would
find little comfort in them , and that he
would be compelled to make the fight
with only those delegates who joined with
: Some of the leaders hoped that Mr.
Bryan could be persuaded to withdraw
from the fight and abide by the decision
of the committee In the interest of party
harmony. There were reports that there
might , be . a . bolt if Judge Parker was
finally selected and a party of progres
sives formed, but none close to the Bryan
leaders would confirm this, saying that
it' was Idle talk to talk of such moves,
especially since the delegates and leaders
had not- threl .ed It out in convention.
' United States ' Senator Martins of New
Jersey was one of the early Wilson ar
rivals today. '
"The temporary chairmanship Is not
worth . fighting over, declared Senator
Martlne: "I am Bryan's friend and would
prefer to 'see a man like Senator Kern
temporary chairman, but that Is all sec
ondary to gating a real progressive can

form that Is more progressive than our

The campaign of lithographs almost

Ever since the Wilson managers monopol

to outdo the others by display of litho
graphs, portraits and banners. One

Gaynor lithographs appeared everywhere
about the lobby. A gigantlo - banner,
necessarily hiding some of the multitu
dinous pictures of other candidates, was
suspended In the lobby. It read: "Gay
nor for President. A Sure Winner."
The snapshot artists are doing a rush
ing business. This year they are not
only seeking the prominent men, but are
photographing the women. They were
particularly insistent that Mrs. Norman
E. Mack, wife, of the national committee
chairman, pose for them. ' She finally
consented provided they would readjust
her veil after the ceremony." They
promised and tried to fulfill their part
of the agreement, but' a newspaper man
had to come to their assistance.
Iowa Wants a Winner.
An appeal for a "winning candidate" is
being made by the Bryan league of Iowa
to every delegate through an address
distributed among the assembled poli
ticians. . In this appeal it Is argued that
democratic success depends upon winning
at least 1,000,000 dissatisfied republicans.
"What faction-of the republican party
can wo best hope to win away?" the
Iowa democrats ask.
"Unquestionably the radical progres--sives
and followers of La Follette. Name
the democrat whom these men are 'now
ready to vote .for and you have found
the winning candidate."
PARKER WORKING OJi SPEECH
He Refuses to Comment onBrj-an'i
NEW YORK, June 22. Alton B. Par
ker, who has been picked by the arrange
ments committee o the democratic na
tional committee for temporary chair
man of the Baltimore convention, arrived
in New York today from Rochester. He
is working on his speech to be delivered
in . Baltimore and denied himself to
visitors, v His secretary said that the
judge would leave for Baltimore either
tonight or tomorrow morning.
Judge Parker has made no comment on
Mr. Bryan's opposition to him as tem
that whatever the complexion of the Bal
tlmer convention, its platform will make
sweeping concessions to the radical ele
ment In the party.
Senator O'Gorman of New York, prob
ably on the resolutions committee, says
that It is the consensus of opinion that
the tariff should be the dominant Issue
and that a vigorous tariff plank should
be the committee's first care. The next
plank In order of importance will relate
to business monopolies.
A universal woman suffrage plank ar
rived here today and several prominent
suffragists already have been promised
a hearing before the committee.
Other planks the committee will con
sider,1 are . as ' follows:
Declaring for regular Increase of the
navy, probably the construction of two
battleships a year.
Permitting postal employes to organize.
Improvement of rivers and harbors.
Favoring a national public health bu
reau. There was talk today of a plank de
claring in strong terms against a third
presidential term. If Colonel Roosevelt
Is nominated to run again, it is said such
a plank is certain to find its way into
the platform. '
FEW CONTESTS TO BE HEARD
GOSSIP ABOUT THE PLATFORM
Sweeping Concessions to Radical
Element Are Probable. ....
BALTIMORE, June 22.-The democratic
platform builders promise to present1 to
the convention ' next week a document
that shall be short and incisive. The
number of "teeth" in it, one plank
maker said today, will depend-upon. the
outcome of the struggle between the
conservative and radical wings of the
party. On most of. the majority points,
however, the leaders seem agreed.
If William J. Bryan wins his fight to
have the keynote of the convention
sounded by a progressive chairman, Mr.
Bryan probably will be made chairman
of the resolutions committee.
In view of .the republican situation and
the hints that the leaders of a "third
ticket" may appeal for support to pro
gressive democrats, there is little doubt

seats In the democratic convention were
completed today by members of the
Death has reduced by one the number
of contests. There will be no contest In
the Sixth Louisiana district. In the same
manner in which the contest was created
it has been solved. The vacancy In the
delegation was caused by the tragic
death in Washington of the late Rep
resentative Robert C. Wycliffe, chosen to
the Baltimore convention some time ago.
A dispute arose as to which of the two
alternates In the district were entitled
to his seat here. Secretary Urey Wood
con of the democratic national commit
tee has been Informed that one of the
alternates also has died.
Up to date the national committee has
received notification of contests affect
ing the entire delegations from the Dis
trict of Columbia, Porto Rico. Vermont
the Philippines and Alaska. In addition
rival claims have been made to the seats
of the delegates from Illinois at large;
the first ten districts of that state and
also the Twentieth. Other contests In
augurated are over three seats from
Rhode Island, one seat in the Seventh
and in the Ninth Pennslyvanla districts
and both seats in the -Seventh and Six
teenth Texas districts.

New Tork Chieftain Declares WU1

BALTIMORE. June 22-Both Senator
O'Gorman of New York and Charles F.
Murphy, leaders of Tammany Hall, de
clared tonight that' there would be no
row In the convention over the selection
of a temporary chairman. Mr. Murphy
insisted, however, that Judge Alton B.
Parker would be chosen, and that Mr.
Bryan would meet defeat before the con
vention opened, at the session of the
national committee which win pass upon
the action of the subcommittee.
"Are you behind , Judge Parker?" he
"Do you think there is any chance of
"I haven't heard of any."
"Will he be accepted by the conven
tion?" "I hope so." .
Murphy Insisted that the controversy
over the temporary chairmanship would
be settled before the convention assem
bled. "There will be no unseemly row," said
Mr. Murphy, "and no bitterness. I am
satisfied Mr. O'Gorman will not do any
thing that Is not for the better Interest
of the party."
Senator O'Gorman said the platform
would contain a strong plank relating
to the so-called money trust but declined
to go Into details. The most important
planks In the platform, he declared,
First tariff reduction, and second, con
trol of monopolies.
Mr. Murphy spent the day in confer
ences with Chairman Robert Craln of the
local committee of arrangements, Colonel
John Hopkins of Chicago, Thomas Tag
gart of Indiana and others.

rangements, meeting with its subcommit

the matter of the temporary chairman

floor of the convention.
N "I do not care to discuss the situation,"
"What I have done has been done In

see from the telegram to the presidential
candidates I did not attempt to name any
person for the place, urged that the con

Announcement of William Howard
Taft's renominatlon on The Bee bulletin

was greeted with prolonged applause and
cheering and some hissing and cries of
derision by a crowd of several hundred
men last night.
Despite the talk of overwhelming'
Roosevelt sentiment In Nebraska and

jority of those present were either
pleased or not greatly displeased with
the result of the week's battle In Chi
cago. For several minutes the crowd
cheered and clapped hands; a few hats
were tossed Into the air. The few men
who gave expression to their 111 feeling
over the collapse of the Roosevelt move
ment within the party soon exhausted
their dispositions to hiss and deride.
Until a late hour a crowd stood In
front of the bulletin board. The Indi
vidual members of the gathering
changed from minute to minute, some
moving on and others coming to take
their places. They scanned the board,
commented upon the Information It dis
played, discussed it briefly and passed
on to .give place to others.
All last week convention bulletins, fur
