. BALTIMORE, June 29. Under the guise
of explaining a change of vote 'in the
Nebraska delegation, William J. Bryan
got another hearing in the democratic
national convention today and again
threw the delegates and spectators Into
a disorderly uproar. Bryan, who under
primary instructions had been voting for
Champ Clark, announced that he would
not vote for him again while New York
was included in the Clark column. He
changed his vote to Wilson, but defiantly
declared he would change again if Mr.
Murphy and the "Ryan-Belmont-Mor-
gan" crowd should vote for Wilson.
Bryan was assailed from the floor by
many delegates, who demanded that his
speech be stopped, and by others who de
manded to know if he would support the
nominee. Bryan said he "expected" to do
so, but he also expected that convention
to nominate a man without the support
"of the interests."
Bryan '. was pale and haggard as he
stood on the platform facing the tumult
he had created on the floor below him.
He swayed back and forward and from
time to time mopped the dripping per
spiration from his furrowed brow.", With
one hand he held the iron railing In front
of him and with the other wielded his
palm leaf fan. When he spoke he had
a defiant glare in his eyes. His voice was
husky. Occasionally h would let go Ms
hold of the railing to shake a warning
finger at th .delegates, i?.
Bryan, held the stage for . nearly an
hbur.'It warthbught to be his last stand
before the convention, but, ha declared
that if the right man was nominated he
would introduce a resolution authorizing
the candidate to . appoint his campaign
committee and not be handicapped by a
national committee on which "the inter
ests" wbre represented. '
Bryan's sensational move interrupted
the fourteenth ballot It created a great
deal of feeling and seemed in the opinion
of most of the leader finally to dispose
of the Nebraskan as a possible candidate.
The antagonism to him was Intense. ;
of most of the leaders finally to dispose
Bryan Takes the Floor.
Bryan rose in his chair in the Nebraska
delegation. He was interrupted with
"Vote, vote," as he asked to explain his
vote. Acting Chairman Sulzer ruled that
nothing was in order but the actual vote.
Bryan persisted In explaining amid
shouts of "Vote, vote."
Bryan said: "As long as New York's
votes are cast for Clark I withhold my
vote from him." . The convention was in
Senator Stone of Missouri shouted above
the din, pleading with the delegates and
galleries to listen to Bryan.
Bryan Held the Floor.

BALTIMORE, June 29. The uncertain

l iiA in M
NEW YORK, June 29.-The appellate
division of the New York state supreme
court has decided that Nathan Allen, a
wealthy manufacturer of Kenosha, wis.,
must accept ' service of subpoena In a
$100,000 suit brought jointly aganlst him
and a number of private detectives by
Mrs. Helen -Jenkins Dwelle.
Some time ago Allen was fined 112,000
in the United States district court here
for smuggling Jewelry into this country
for Mrs. Dwelle. The suit she brought
was based on the allegation that Allen
took securities and Jewelry from a safe
deposit box she owend and to which, she
charged, Allen had access. It was while
Allen was here as defendant in the smug
gling case that summons in Mrs. Dwelle's
suit was served on him. " He claimed im
munity, declaring he was in this city
under the Jurisdiction of a different court.
'A lower court sustained his contention
and Mrs. Dwelle appealed to the appel
late division which has now reversed the
decision of the lower division. The ap
pellate division made the distinction that
Allen was not here voluntarily but un
der compulsion of the law.

concession without any unnecessary hag

figures above and below $24 and 2 per

but at the finish we were unanimous. It
can readily be seen that the city can have
no kick when it takes into account that
the amounts sued for by, the company
