St. Louis, June 13. National Chair

DEMOCRATS MAD AT
Unterrified in Dumps Because Ke
- publicans Are Gettine Pro
; gressive Support.
BEY AN TO REMAIN QUIET
BY EDGAR C. SNYDER.
St. Louis, Mo., June 13. (Special
Telegram.) The democrats, and
there are quite a' bunch of the unter
rified in town, are mad because the
republicans . took Hughes off the su
preme court bench to run for presi
dent. They are also mad because Colo
nel Roosevelt deserted them in their
hour of need. And they do not hesti
tate to express their profound dis
gust over the situation.
These good democrats feet that the
republicans put one over on them and
they are vociferous in their expres
sions of "outrageous political ethics,"
whatever that may mean.
Mr. Bryan, of our state, caused
great relief to the leaders, when short
ly before noon today he announced
that he had no intention to throw any
monkeq wrenches into the convention
machinery. He declared he would not
seek to enter the convention by proxy,
if such a thing in a nation is permis
sible, and he further declared that he
would not urge any . inks unsatis
factory to the leaders. So much for
our distinguished citizen. I will have
something to print about ex-Sccretary
Bryan and his relationship with the
Nebraska delegation later.
Robbing the Judiciary.
When Representative Hull of Ten
nessee, suggested that a plank dis
qualifying the federal judiciary from
elective offices was suggested, it was
snapped up eagerly by the democracy
here assembled in the "Mound City,"
fittingly named for a democratic con
vention. The brave boys of the demo
cracy went after Hull's suggestion
like a bass after a, minow and ran
down stream full length of the line
until hauled up short. Somebody re
minded them that they themselves, in
this very town, in 1904, had ravaged
the bench by depriving it of Judge Al
ton B. Parker and nomrnating him for
their president. .
.But. the democrats refused to give
up their idea; they insisted there was
a differences between the state ju
diciary and the supreme court of the
United States. .
Going To Congress.
Today another angle appears to the
proposition. They now intend to take
the question up in congress as soon
as they return to the national capital.
; A joint resolution will be introduc
ed, according to present plans, propos
ing an amendment to the constitution
of theJJnited States to be submitted
to the states for ratification provid
ing, that no. justice ut ;the,upreme
wan nau ujc avauaoie xor eieciice
office until five years after leaving
the bench.' Six democratic senators
last night, in a conference approved;
this idea;-..f3 ' h -.sV . ,
, Democrats Discouraged.
So much for this.. There is a feel
ing of depression among the rank and
file over the announcement of so
many leading progressives of their
adherence - to Mr. Hughes; That
George W. Perkins, George Von L.
Meyer, Senator Cummins, Henry
Allen and others should come out for
Mr. Hughes is very discouraging.
They fear that it will spoil their plans
to invite wholesale recruiting to the
democratic ticket from the ranks of
the "bull moosers."
There is divided counsel in the lead
ership over the course to be pursued
in the speeches before the convention
and the statements to be given out
as to the personal attacks on Hughes
Senator Stone', in his statement
last night, dealt in personalities to a
degree which some of the leaders
thought unwise, while others ap
proved his utterances.
. Bryan in Press Box.
I like to write about Mr. Bryan, the
late secretary of state, because he is
a Nebraskan. Mr. Bryan, whom they
all have a profound admiration for.
although off the political map for the
time being, will remain unobtrusively
in the press box. This will be the
first democrat convention- in twenty
years that he has not dominated.
Three times out of the last five na
tional conventions he was nominated
for president. In 1904 he was not
nominated, but hj was recognized as
a powerful factor in the party when
Alton B. Parker was nominated
against Bryan's advice and was over
whelmingly defeated. What happened
in 1912 is remembered.
Price to Name Morehead.
Locally the situation is interesting
because Governor Morehead's name
is going to be presented to the con
vention by Mr. Price. That was de
cided on today at the conference,
which eventuated in nothing after
three hours of balloting and talking,
largely the latter. ,

backs up Former statement
New York, June 13. Charles E.
Hughes, in response to questions put
to him today by newspaper men in
regard to his attitude towards the
support offered him by the German
Americans, said it was "one of undi
stated my position very clearly,"
said the republican presidential can
didate, "in my statement to the con
vention. My attitude is one of undi
luted Americanism and anybody that
supports me is supporting an out and
out American and an out and out
American policy: absolutely nothing
Mr. Hughes dictated his statement
on "undiluted Americanism" in re
sponse to repeated requests of inter
viewers and in the face of his pre
viously announced1 determination to
say nothing further on issues of the
day until his formal notification of
nomination. He met the correspond
ents by appointment and dictated' the
statement standing in a grouu of
about forty newspaper men and other
Only Authorized Statement.
It was the only statement he made
during his talk with newspaper men
that he would permit to. go out as
authorized by him. '
At the same time it was made clear
to callers that the nominee should
use what he thought was the most
emphatic langusge he could have
used on this subject in his telegram
last Saturday to Chairman Harding of
the republican national convention.
Mr. Hughes, it was said, intends
to meet doubt that has been raised
a manner which he believes will
clear it up. It will be a long cam
paign and a strenuous campaign, ac
cording to the present outlook at
headquarters, and there will be op
portunity to go into details before
the American people.
The nominee, leaders said, probably
will start early on his speech-making
tours. , These and other details, how-
fcyer, yet remain to; be decided. -5.'J- i

Hughes would remain in New York
until he beuins his speech-making
tours, with the excepeion of his con
templated visit to Brown university

Will Choose Chairman Later. '
One of, the few developments of
the day at Mr. Hughes' .headquarters
was an announcement by Larayette
B. Gleason. secretary of the repub
lican national committee, and also of
the New York state renublican com
mittee, which indicated that it will be
several days yet before any decision
is reported on the question of the
man who is to succeed Charles D.
Hillea as chairman of the republican
national committee. Mr. Gleason said
that a subcommittee of the national
committee would in a few days call
upon the nominee to discuss the mat
Another development was the an
nouncement from the candidate's
headquarters that moving pictures
would be employed to aid his cam
paign. It is planned to throw on the
screen throughout the country pic
tures of Mr. Hughes "iri.order that
the people may again become familiar
with Charles E. Hughes, because he
has for so long a time been virtually
out of public life." The screens also
will display important passages from
Mr. Hughes' telegram to the national
convention accepting the nomination.

for governor of New York on the

Conference Seems -Near
New York, June 13. The confer

railway officials declared that "time
