Unable to Draw
Crowd in Lincoln
(From a Btaff Correipondont.)
Lincoln, Oct. 28. (Special Tele
gram.) Speaking to a crowd of leu
than 150 people tonight, Secretary of
Labor Wilson of the president s cabi
net compared William I. Bryan to
John the Baptist and said he was the
man who had prepared the way for
the great things that had come by
reason of the present democratic ad
This is the fourth attempt that the
democrats of Lancaster county have
made to draw a crowd at a public
meeting. The opener of the campaign,
Congressman Hardy of Texas, drew a
bare 100 people. Judge Nartoni of
Missouri drew less than 13U, while
Senator Hitchcock had to be content
with about fifty. :
ihe state committee then sent lor
cabinet member, hoping to stir up
some enthusiasm, and the result to
night is an indication of the lack of
interest in democratic political affairs
in this county.
Governor Morehead presided and
after John A. Maguire had talked Sec
retary Wilson was introduced and
talked for about an hour.

Cites Letter From Professor
Statement on Matter.
TELLS WHY BRYAN QUIT
Somerville, Mass., Oct. 28. The
assertion that President Wilson, at
the time the second Lusitania note
was sent to Germany, wrote and aft
erward withdrew a postscript inform
ing the German government that the
contents of his previous note were
not to be interpreted too seriously,
was reiterated by Senator Henry
Cabot Lodge in a political address
The senator added to his statement
the announcement that information
on the subject had come to him in a
letter from Dr. Charles H. Bailey of
the Tufts Medical school, in which
Henry Breckinridge, fortnerly assist
ant secretary of war, was quoted as
authority for the story of the alleged
Senator Lodge reviewed the send
ing of the Lusitania notes and the
resignation of Secretary of State
Bryan. He continued: ,
"There was one feature about
which there was much speculation
at the tune, and that was why Mr.
Bryan anbwed his name to be ap
pended to a very strong ' note,
couched in the most extreme lan
guage possible to diplomacy, and yet
resigned so that he need not affix
his1 signature to the very mild note
of June 9, a note which even a man
of very strong .pacificist tendencies
could not have objected to.
Not Same Note.
"It was currently reported at that
time that the reason for this appar
ently inexplicable action on ' Mr.
Bryan's part was the fact that the
first note, as finally sent, was not
the note to which he had appended
his signature. Within a few days
there has come into my possession
direct information upon this subject,
contained in the (following letter,
which vas addressed to Grafton
Cushing, who forwarded it to me.
This writer. Dr. Charles H. Bailey,
professor in the Tufts Medical
school, is a gentleman of high stand
ing and undoubted veracity.'
Senator Lodge then read the let
ter of Dr. Bailey, dated Ojctober 24,
"'Dear Sir:. As you requested, I
am submitting to you herewith in
writing a report of a conversation
between- ex-Assistant Secretary of
War Breckinridge and myself. Leav
ing San Francisco on July 15, 1916, I
rode from that city as far as Omaha
with Mr. Breckinridge.
Stated Matter Correctly.
"During the trip I asked Mr. Breck
inridge if he would be willing to an
swer certain questions with regard to
the conduct of our national affairs
during his connection with the pres
ent administration. Receiving an af
firmative reply, I asked him, among
other things, as to the truth of the
published report that, following the
so-called "strict accountability"
note, Secretary Bryan had informed
Ambassador Dumba that the central
powers need not take the note too
seriously, as it was written for politi
cal effect and home consumption only.
He said that in all essential details
I had stated the matter correctly,
which led him, of his own accord, to
tell me the following this is not, of
course, a verbatim report, but simply
a brief outline of the story a told
me by Mr. Breckinridge:
'"He stated that following the
completion of the "omit no word or
no act" note to the satisfaction of
the cabinet, Mr. Wilson, without the
knowledge of any member of the
cabinet, except Secretary Bryan him
self, wrote a postscript, which he sent
with the note to the State department
for codification, Mr. Breckinridge
stated that both Mr, Garrison and
he had seen this postscript and he
told me what he claimed were its ex
act words, which, however, I cannot
repeat exactly, but the substance was
that the imperial German government
was not to put too serious an inter
pretation on the words "omit no word
Signed by Bryan.
"'On the contrary he would be in
clined, provided the German govern
ment did not see fit to yield to the
demands of the United States to use
his efforts toward submitting the en
tire matter to an impartial interna
tional tribunal, the decision to be
made only after the war. Both note
and postscript was submitted to and
signed by Secretary Bryan. This, ac
cording to Mr. Breckinridge, was too
good for Mr. Bryan to keep to him
self, with the result that It reached
Secretary Garrison's eara, who imme
diately, with two or three (I do not
remember which) other members of
the cabinet, called uoon Mr. Wilson
and demanded that he withdraw the
postscript under the threat that other
wise they would resign and make the
matter public. Mr, Wilson imme
diately yielded and Secretary Gar
rison and the others left.
"'Immediately after this, President
Wilson summoned Secretary Bryan
to the White House, and .when the
latter (eft President Wilson had thi
assurance of his resignation; whether
at Mr. Wilson's request, because
Secretary Bryan had been responsible
for the matter reaching Secretary
Garrison's ears, or whether presented
by Secretary Bryan because there had
been a previous misunderstanding
between Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bryan,
that the latter would sign the note
proper only with the understanding
that such a nullifying postscript
should be sent and the president was
now unable to fulfill the agreement,
Mr. Breckinridge was unable to
"'I asked Mr. Breckinridge if he
would be willing to bring such
knowledge as he possessed to the
active support of Mr. Hughes. He
said that he was still at heart a
democrat, but that neither he nor any
other patriotic American could sup
port Wilson. Whether, however, he
would be willing actively to support
Hughes, he said he could not say at
that early date.
"'With best wishes for the success
of your campaign, I am,
" 'Sincerely yours,
"CHARLES HARVEY BAILEY.'
"This," continued Senator Lodge,
"simply throws an additional light on
the shifty character of this adminis
tration in its foreign policies. It is
also of interest in another way, for
it apparently shows that Mr. Bryan's
reason for resigning was the highly
creditable one of objecting to having
his signature go out appended to a
document differing in an essential
point from the one which he had
