1 "Champ Clark was the victim of coma
very bad advisers." said W. J." Bryan
when his train stopped for a few minutes
in Omaha en route to Lincoln. Mr. Bryan
was smiling as he stepped from the plat
: form, and looked none the worse for the
ten days of strenuous work at the Bal
timore convention.
I "I have nothing to - say - against - Mr.
Clark," . he said, "he was merely the
victim of bad advisers. If he had joined
!in the fight against Parker as Wilson
did, it might have been a very different
' convention, for the chances in favor of
hi nomination up to that time were very
good. But some of his advisers were
more anxious to humiliate me than to
nominate Clark. .They seemed to think
a man could be humiliated by what
others do to him, whereas humiliation
must, come from the conduct of the man
himself If it comes at all.
"The resolutions against Ryan, Bel
mont, and the rest created such conster
nation as was seldom seen in a conven
tion. ; I never expect to look upon such
a scene again. It separated the sheep
from the goats. Possibjy this statement
is not quite accurate because a few of
the goats slipped through at the last mo
ment,; but their names are known.
Wall Street Eliminated.
- "We have a candidate for president"
continued Mr. Bryan, "who was nomi
nated' without the aid of Wall street.
' You can subtract all the crooked votes
from his vote and he will still have the
necessary two-thirds. He is under no
' obligations to Mr. Murphy and the finan-
1 clal interests back of him. And he will
he stronger In New York for this very
(act than he would have had had his
nomination been brought about by
, Murphy. The rank and file of the party
in' New York is ' as much opposed to
domination by predatory Wealth as, are
. the rank and file elsewhere, but in New
. York they find It more difficult to ex
.resthem8elves in convention.". .
( VI am only taking Mr Roosevelt's word
t Bryan in answer to a question.
I'i MiC "Bryan's broad smils crept over his
, face again when allusion was. mads to
( the' way the steam roller was used on
, him In the first round of the convention,
i 'IThat .. wasn't bad, however," . he . re
; marked. ".
' He said he had no comment to . make
on the selection of a national chairman
as that would be left to the presidential
; candidate. ' ,
' As to plans for the campaign Mr.
j Bryan said he had nothing definite to
announce as he would now proceed to
! yU home Jn, Lincoln for a few, days and
would .then have two months of work on
' the Chautauqua platform. He said he
could 'not be present; at the democratic
state convention as he would have Chau
tauqua engagements at that time.

LINCOLN, Neb., July 5. (Special Tele
gram.) The home coming of William J.
Bryan from the Baltimore convention this
morning was almost a duplicate of that
other, home coming a few years ago when
he returned from his celebrated tour of
the world. Long before the train was
due the station was crowded with people
of all political parties anxious to be one
of the first to grasp his hand in welcome.

Shooting "at Webster
City Still Mystery
WEBSTER CITY, la., July 5.-(SpecIal
Telegram.) The coroner's, jury today
found no new evidence in the shooting
of William Reinhardt last night. It Is
still a mystery whether he was mur
dered or whether' It was the result of
careless shooting.
With his brother-in-law, Reinhardt was
drivl-g to the city, when just over the
Bank street bridge threw pistol shots
rang out. One struck Reinhardt in the
back and he died half an hour later
without having recovered consciousness.
Officers are inclined to think that
three shots indicate wilful murder. It
being the night of the Fourth, much
promiscuous shooting was indulged in
along the river. Not a single clew, how
ever, has yet been obtained."

WASHINGTON, July -Representative
Norris of Nebraska, progressive repub
lican, today Introduced a bill which he
declared would remedy the evils of pri
maries. In a prepared statement he declared

rank and file 'of any national political
party."
The Norris bill provides for a national
convention for each party on the fourth
Monday in June in every "presidential"
year. In the convention each state rep
resentation would be based on party's
strength in the state.
Delegates to the convention would be
elected at primaries to be held the first
Tuesday In May, the result of the pri
maries being certified by state officials
to the secretary of the interior, who
would canvass the votes.
Voters would express a first and sec
ond choice for presidential candidates and
the candiate having a majority ot the
first choice votes, as canvassed by the
secretary of the Interior, would become
the nominee of his party. No action by
the convention In regard to the nominee
would be necessary unless none of the
candidates received a majority, In which
case the convention would nominate.
The bill would not go into effect until
Its provisions had been accepted and laws
in conformity with It passed by at least
twenty states.

be a subject for future consideration of

OYSTER BAY. July S.-A campaign
along novel lines was sketched In bare
outline last night by Colonel Roosevelt
As the candidate of the new progressive
party for the presidency, Colonel Roose
velt intends to make an appeal largely
to the farmer and the wage worker en

nor the republican party Is attempting
seriously in this campaign to deal with
the fundamental economic, and social
conditions which confront the country.
It is from the farmer and was earner.

talned his strength in the pant It is M
them that he Intends to. appeal now.
Colonel Roosevelt said that Senator
Joseph M. Dixon of Montana, who
managed his campaign for the republican
presidential nomination, in all probability
will be his campaign manager In his
fight at' the head of the new party.
Throughout his campaign he will eon
tend that neither of the great old parties
has shown the adaptability or the In
clination to take the point of view of
the average man who has work for his
living.

LEADERS AFRAID OF BRYAN
C. J. Smyth Says the Commoner Was
the Whole Show.
CLARK GETS BAD START
Attorney. Says that Speaker Made
a Mistake When He Fell In with
Those Who Would (rush.
Bryan.
C. J. Smyth, one of the delegates from
Omaha who took part In the democratio
convention in Baltimore, arrived home
yesterday afternoon. When the conven
tion was mentioned to him he warmed
up a bit In his enthusiasm for the way
Bryan manipulated the affairs of the big
fight.
"Bryan," he said, "has been misunder
stood by a great many people. A great
many hold that Bryan does not feel a
proper obligation to the men who have
supported him In the past, and they point
to the fact that he opposed Clark, who
had stood by him through thick and thin
for sixteen years. Now, I believe that
Bryan feels that when a man supports
htm he Is simply supportlnjr the things
he stand for, and 1 do not bstlevo that
Brya ivef felt under obligation to any
f "i nalttlealli.-. t )ll.v. - ..
&tJp 4eeis that i. man who supports
Him for the principle he Stand for rets
his reward out of that support And the
quicker people understand that the
quicker they will understand Mr. Bryan.
I believe he appreciates favor and I be
lieve he is not ungrateful, but he holds
principle above everything else."
Should Except Some,
Speaking of the Bryan resolutions, Mr.
Smyth said: "Some of us felt he should
have excepted some of the New York del
egates from the charges, for there were
a number of very good men in the dele
gation, but In general we favored the
fight he made against them. A blind man
could see that the Interests were on the
ground. They had to be dealt with, and
Bryan was the only living man who
could fight them and fight them success
fully. The leaders seemed to hate him,
but they were afraid of him, every
mother's son of tlvsm, for they knew the
people were behind him."
The matter of how Roosevelt, if he
gets avtlvely into the field would affect
the campaign, Mr. Smyth says was very
much discussed by the delegates at
Baltimore. Some, he says, felt that
Roosevelt in the field might be a good
thing for the democratic ticket while
others thought It would not. The general
feeling, however, he says, was that
Roosevelt could not now get the follow
ing he might have had If Wilson had not
been nominated on the domocratlc ticket.
There was a general feeling of sym-
patny tor ciarK," Mr. Smyth said. "We
were sorry he was brought so near the
crown and then could not take It. But
we all felt that he was sacrificed in the
house of his friends. If he had lined up
as Bryan wanted him to at the outset
he would be the nominee today. But It
was rumored from the outset that Clark,
or at least those who had lined up with
him, had determined that Bryan must
be crushed, and of course history tell
the result."
Mr. Smyth, like other delegates, con
cedes that Bryan was head and shoulders
above any other man in the convention.
He says there were many men there
who are big In public affairs, but they
came Into the building unnoticed, while
Bryan, when he came Into the hall, had
to be protected by the police from people
rushing to him to shake hands and con
gratulate him. "We aiyfelt," Mr. Smyth
said, "that this was the greatest battle
of his. life and the greatest victory."

No Third Party
For Cummins
WASHINGTON, July 5.-Senator Cum
mins ot Iowa, progressive republican can
didate for presidential nomlnaton at the
Chcago conventon, today formally de
clared aganst the new party movement
led- by Theodore Roosevelt and announced
hs allegiance to the old party. In so do
ing Mr. Cummin declared that bosses
could not be escaped by organization of
new parties and that to those republicans
who, after Intelligent Inquiry, conclude
that President Taft's renomlnation was
the result of fraudulent votes, "the nomi
nee of the convention is not the nominee .
of the republican party." He pointed out,
however, that disappointment or Individ
ual dishonesty cannot be a foundation of
a new party, John P. Capers of this city,
South Carolina member of the republican
national committee who supported Colo
nel Roosevelt for the presidential nomina
tion at Chicago, also formally announced
hla Intention te support President Taft's
candidacy. Mr. Cajers In a statement
sd, the work of the majority of the,.fl-.
tlonal commute "was fjiot one whit more
severe than, the steam roller methods of
four year ago."
"At that time," he said. 'In behalf of
Candidate Taft and under the direction
of President Roosevelt I was one of the
engineers of the machine and helped
flatten out the minority of the committee
who were In the same condition when
we got through with them as were the
fifteen men ot the committee at Chicago
at this time."
"Mr, Capers was one of the fifteen.
There will always be a steam roller In
the national committees of both parties,"
he said, "until the just 'and fair thing'
is done providing for the new national
committee to make up thT temporary roll
and, assume office before the convention
nominate for president."
