LINCOLN, Dec. 10. (Special.)
Criticism by Mayor Charles Bryan of
the acts of certain democrats In fil
ing a petition placing the name of I
President Wilson on the primary
ballot as a candidate for renomlna
tion has prompted Colonel John O.
Maher to respond and he gives out
the following communication today
In answer to what has been said:
o much Interesting talk haa greeted
the filing of the Wilson presidential pe
tition in this Btate that I am convinced
now, more than ever, that what those
twenty-seven democrats did will find
general endorsement at the hands of dem
ocrats generally, as well as men of other
"Our petition could have extended yards
snd yards down the secretary's office,
but those of us who talked tho matter
ocr considered It of sufficient length,
and thought that democrats of Nebraska
would agree that It should contain nly
the tenulred numher of names. The sug
gestion for ita circulation came from a
point out In the state and we Lincoln
democrats were glad to circulate It.
Will ol Kmbarrau President.
"rtecent history made at our national
capital demonstrates beyond all doubt
that the filing will cmbarass any non
partisan program the presklent may have
in contemplation. For only the day after
tho receipt of the petition at tl?e White
House, President Wilson, himself, dined
tho entire democratic national committee
and freely talked with his 'political fam
ily' as to plans for the coming year.
"lie was given a Btrong vote of en
dorsement at the hands of tho committee,
too, a sentiment so inspiring that no one
could construe his position as other than
wholesomely and aggressively partisan,
lie In still the president of the people,
hut ho has lost none of his partisanship.
This, in my opinion, is a tribute to his
power and his broad-mindedness. He Is
all the more American because he folloms
"As to Charles W. Bryan's inquiries at
Washington concerning this petition there
is little to say. Mr. Bryan was given a
chance to sign the" petition. He did not
do so. The reason he gave was ethereal,
as I thought at the time. I am more than
ever convinced of it now.
Hoaat for Bryan Propaganda.
"Especially am 1 convinced of It when
evidence is laid before me of the personal
ends which Mayor Charles and hla
brother have In continuing their opposi
tion to President Wilson's policies.
"I find, for Instance, that the Bryans,
under the name of Mayor Charles, are
circularizing hundreds, yes perhaps
thousands of democrats In this and other
states working up sentiment against what
many people consider the president's most
important program. I find him in these
letters, dwelling at length upon the
'strong, selfish lobbies and interests,'
which, he says, are the chief ones back
ing the adequate defense program for
our beloved country. 1 find him excoriat
ing senators and congressmen, who are
standing behind this program, as too
closo to bis business to turn It down
or too unintelligent to disagree the mo
tives which he says, prompt Us proposal
at this time.
Cashing; Political Antics.
"I find Mayor Charlea citing. In his
fervor, the battle put up under misap
prehension to repudiate President Wil
son's program and then I find at the end
of this lengthy, unpatriotic tirade at one
dollar per against the Wilson policies, a
plea for restoration of the recipient's
name to the subscription list of the Com
moner. "It Is not enough that W. J. Bryan
should desert our president In a trying
hour. It Is not enough that he should
seek to belittle -'resident Wilson and
make the people of the country believe
that the president had turned his back
upon them and was about to go over
to big business.
"It is not enough that he should pro- J
pose a course for this country., which
would shame It among all people and be
an Invitation to pugnacious and design
ing nations to Ao us violence but now
he must come forward and collect money
for his activity!
"Verily this is the most sordid and
intemperate peace commercialism and
doctrine of non-resistance our country
has ever been called upon to witness'.
"There Is but one thing the earneat
citizen can ask himself aa he gales upon
this disDlav and that Is: How long will
it be possible for him to cash In his j
political antics at the boxofflce, and how j
long win ne oe auie.iu out-, mem i
the publio at bargain subscription rates
how long will a sincere and aerioua
minded and patriotic public endure these
