Bllaa L. Bryan. a lawyer of standlng and a man of
taiegrlty. He wa. of VirglnlB StSOk. havlng moved
to Illlnois ln the flrst half of the ceniury. He was
a, man of sturdy charaoter and sound common
-??,. who. by appllcutlon. self-denial and. to a
large extent, eelf-teachlng, won an honorable place
st tbe Illlnois bar. He served elght years in theil 11 -
nola State Senate, and was afterward a Circuit
Court Judge. The Bryans llved on a farm outalde
the llmitt of the city. where the son epent bla eari>

for oollege. Two years later he was BBTOjted la
tbe freahman class of Illlnola College, a small Inatl
tudoo ln Jaeksonvlllc, 111.
AN ORATOR AT COLLEOK.
He was a good student, and was graduated with
fc.nor. in June. V*. He had already oegun to cuUi
wwto hls oratorlcal powera. and had won some fame
ta tbe eollegtate clrcles * ""^a^0^

ln Oalestruni- ln hls senlor yesr. where he won second

^ouni' Bryan lmmedlately began the Btudy of law
?n leavlng Jacksonvirie. He entered the Unlon Law
?College at Chtoa*o. and at the same tlme went into
tbe law offlce of Judge Lyman Trumbull, pursulng
thus both tbe theoretlcal and the practlcal alde of the
lawyer'a preliminaxy atudles at oncs. From hls
fsther'e position and the eduoatlonal ?ppwtunltles
gtven him. the son thus enjoyed exceptional advan
tages as a stud*nt of law-advantages that mlght
well bave ?nab.ed him to reaoh e hlgh place ln the
srofeasion he had chosen If he had appllcd himse'.f
wStb tho aaune dillgence lhat he asBalbHsd la some
Otber dlreotlona It is sakl of him hy men who have
kxuywn brm from early manhood that he has suffered
from a "fa-.al pift of language." whlch he has cultl
vated at the expense of other and more solld quai
fciea.
? He started la his professiona! carter ln .Tackson
rUe, III.. where he had spent the years of his col?
lege llfe. Perhaps the reason ho turned thiiher after
hls professional tralning had passed over Int3 the
actual business of llfe was to be found ta the fact
tfcat a year lat.r he was marrled to a young woman
who bad been a student at a seminary there while
Bryan hiroself was at college. She was Miss Mary
E- Balrd, the only daughter of a prosperoua m- r
cfaant of Perry. 112.
In 1887 Mr. Bryan moved to Llncoln, Neb. He had
become lmpressed wlth the greater opportunlties of
the newer West and the pOSafbUltlea effeced by Ita
more rapld deveiopment for a young man. He formed
a law partnership in Llncoln and op.-nM an office
there ln the fall of 1SS7. the flrm name being Talbot
A Bryan.
PIRST EXPF.RIENCE IN POL1T1CS.
Mr. Bryan's entranee into polltl. al llfe was made
ta May of the followlng year. When he argg elected
S delegate to the Dem>oratlc State Conrsatton.
whlch meA ln Omaha, to choose delegr.ter: to the N i
tlonal Conventlon at St. Louis. He ha.1. h.-re one of
the flrst opportunit|e?i thtt came to him to rsvsal
publlc2y hls talent for polltleal oratory of the "whirl
wind" utyle. t'or, ln an lotermisslon of the r-gular
proceedlngs. he wus called up <n by some of his
fr'ends for a speoch. Hls r.si>onse wa? of a eort
tbat held the eonventijn close listener.-i. Hla BUb
ject wa. the tarlff. up..n whlch he saponnded the
SXinane and radical fr.-e-trade vlews thui hc- IstST
had tbB opportunlty to dtllver ln tlie Natlonal
House of RepreeentaUves. He laid then ar.d thcr~
the foundatlon of a reputation that extended
throucbout the Sute. al;hough he was then only
twenty-elght years ohi.
Tbe reputation then establlshed was of rupid
arrowtb?so rapld that ln the next year the young
lawyer, who two yearr. before had come to Lincoin
unknown and unheraided. received an off. r trom his
party leaders of the nom'natlon for Lleutenntii-Ck.v
?rnor. He deelined the offer. but entered actv.iy
tato tbe work of the campalgn. making many
spoeobea all over the State.
In the followlng year. 189U. the younger element
ot tbe Democratlc party In hls dlstrict oftered Mr.
Bryan the nomination for Congrese. Tht- l?n, -
craUc party at that tlme had suffered severe defeat.
Four yeara before the dlstrict had gone Democratlc
by a majortty of T.OOn; ln 1888 J. Sterllng Morton had
been defeated by his Republlean opponent by a ma?
jority of more than 3,000. The contest was regarde 1
as hopcleas by the Democrats. ar.d there was. more
ovcr. a bitter rlvaln- between tho two citUs of Lln?
coln and Omaha. The Democrats of the latter clty
(the horae of the Republlean Congressman Connell,
wbo was his opponent) openly sn.-cred at "lhat Lln?
coln boy" and made no doubt of his deftat. Mr.
Hryan bimseif went into the conteKt wlth the ex
peotatk-n of defeat. The party war horaaa to.k no
Interest In the contest ai.d eirpplled pnac-ieally no
(uada for the campalgn.
AN CNEXPF.CTKD V1CTORY.
Mr. Bryan, nevcrtheless, worked hard. and M w^as
a Demoeratic year. The unre-asonlng reactlon
j agatabt the new McKlnley Tartff law had set la, and
Mr. Bryan made the most of U. The is.?ue in Ne
braaaa waa complleated by the Injectlon of the
lssue. of prohlbltlon. and a prohlbltory clause for the
:7* Conat*tutlon. submitted by tbe RepubUcan*; was
. pending beforo the p*0P^- ^r Bryaa was swej.t
I tato Oongress by the ti lal wave; he rseetssd 32.S76
? sotes, against 25.6C3 for Ooaastt
Mr. Bryan thus began hla flrst polltleal BSnrlse as
sn object of conslderab'.e attention. Hls polltleal
godfather ln the House was Wlliiam M. Sprlniier.
When the former came ls uke hln seat m Coograaa,
ln December. MM, i^prliger was B candldit.- for
ggasaker. and he had no more faithful snd devoted
frlend than Bryan. In the outcome of th..- bitter
ajpeakershtp flght of that year. .Springer baesJBS
ShsJrman of the commlttee on Waya and Means;
snd through his lnfiu.nce hls BfOtigl was assiijned
to that Important commlttee. drsj.lte the fa't that
<j# a^, abeolutely devold of l.-glslntive experlence
ind thst hla knowledge of ec-in-mla aub.lects was
yt tbe most superftclal and limlted nature. He de
* Voted hlmaelf wltb enthuaiasm to the ?p.^pgun"
pollcy whlch governed the eommittee in the I.Ild
Congreas, and his oratorical glfts were f.-und so
uaeful that when the commlttee was rsorgaataad ln
the Ulld Congress be was retalned as a BBeaober
*The apeech advocatlng free trade whlch he had
dellvered so many tlmea and wlth such ecceptance
to llstenlng multltudea of Demoerat. and Popullst.
ln the Weat waa revsmped and made to do duty.
not only once. but several tlmea ln the House of
Repreeentatlves, where unaophlstlcated members
wlldly cheered and equally unsophlstlcated aodltora
ln tbe gallarlea beetowed unstlnted applauae upon
the "boy orator." It waa alwaya tlie same od
apeech wlth s few new trlmmlnga and phrases. T)
resllae tbe poverty of knowledge and ststesmanship
wbleh lay bthlnd these oratorical outbursts one hs<l
on2y to slt through one of the hearlngs whlch were
grudgtagly granted by the majority of the Waya
and Meana Commlttee ln September, ikw. Mr. Bryan
, WSS ueuslly s Ists-eomer, but when be dld arrlve
he waa loaded with lneonsequentlal and lrrelevant
questlons that betrayed a lack of elementary Infor
matlon and knowledge that made even Buch men aa
Bynum and Tarsney elevatc their eyebrows.
In the House of Representatlvc. Mr. Bryan exhlh
lted coriBlderahle readlness In repartce whlch he mada
effectlve on aome cccaalons with (hc ald of his flne
elocutlonary and rhetorlcnl glfts and tralnlng. Ho
usually voted with the extreme men of hlB party,
but he BometltneB preferred to "dodge," aa on the
motlon to overrulo Presldrnt Cleve'.and'a veto of the
Selgnlorage hill. when he was absent and not palred.
There ls no reason to Bt-BPSO. however. elthar on
that or any other account. that Mr. Bryan la not
in full svmpathy with the aentlmenta enunclated in
the Chicago platform. or that lf he should be elected
Prealdent of the ITnttSd States he would not strlv*
to the best of hla abillty and power to enforce the
Popuhstlc doetrlnes thereln embodled.
In 1892 he was re-elected to Congress hy a greatly
reduced plurallty-only 1?. It was ln the LdHd
Congress that he became prominent through his
ardent advocacy of the free colnage of silver. He
was one of the most radleal and hnoJlra
partv. and was seleote.l for the more than duBloua
honor of belng Kichard P. B?an?a right-hant man
Iii. hta mnnoeuv. ring for allver. Though notjaiaWs
parllamentarl.-in. his readlness as a "Pf**" ?ft,;!S
him valuabl. to tbe vetcran silver leader. One or
hls most noteworthy efTorts was a speech of three
hour. agalnst the repeal of the Silver Purchase
law of whlch the flamlng and voluble oratorlcal
aushtfea concealed the povcrty of Ita argumentatue
When the tlme for renominatlon came Mr. Bryan
d.clitied (o scrve further, plending the necsslty or
attendlng to his private inlerests. He was aoon re?
ported, however. to have acceptsd the edltorshlp of
"The Omaha World-Herald." The promotlon of the
Bllver cause wiis the ostenslble alm and objret or nls
entrance Into edltorial work; but it aoon became ap?
parent that there was another and more peraonal
purpose in his taking this step. and that was the
furtherance of hls own candldacy for l nlted States
Senator. Another featnre of hlB edltorial page was
to be the lighting of the Cleveland Admlnlstratlon
and all its worka.
BECOMES AX EDITOR.
Mr. Bryan began his dutles on "The World-Her?
ald" on September 1, 1*.. He struck a curioua and,
to his enemles. entcrtainlng ar.ag, ljowever, before
long. The proprletors of the paper had contracted
with the Republlcan Stair- Csatral <'ommlttee to
glve them two cohimns on the edltorial page dally.
Mr. Bryan soon found that they were tllilng thla
apaos with matter dsatlned to injure hls own pros
pects for winning the Senatorsnip; and aa these
proapecta were In reality what he chiefly Intended
to fostt-r, he became alarmed and endeavored to
brrak the contract in the court*. The sult was de
cided agalnst him. and he was obliged to go on
printing In his own paper matter detnmental to hls
own polltlcal lnterests. Aa a reBiilt of thla he re?
tired from the edltorshlp.
His fears were well grounded. for the Republlcana
elected John M. Thuraton 1'nlted States Senator to
suceeed Benator Manderaon. Mr. Bryan has? smee
been ln the retlrement of private llfe. He has, how?
ever, been an actlve worker for the cause of free
Bllver, and hns made frequent trlps through tho
South and West alv... atlr.g it. He Ib one of the

[BT TEI._r.RAPH T_ THE TRIBL'NE.]
Boston, July lO.-Wlthln the laat twenty-four
hours there has been a wholesale deaertlon ln
Boston and throughout the State, from the Dem?
ocratlc prlnclples aa expounded and frarr.ed by
the Chicago Convention.
Collector Wlnslow Warren, of the Port of Bos?
ton, an appolntee of Presldent Cleveland, an?
nounced to-day that he was no longer a Demo?
crat, and that he would vote for McKlnley. The
actlon of the Chlrago Conventlon haa, he sald,
disgusted the Democrats of this State, two
thlrds of whom, he says. wlll vote for McKlnley
and the other thlrd will refraln from votlng.
Professor Charles Eliot Norton, of Harvard
Universlty, sald ln an intervlew, that he has not
been a Democrat, but an Ind. pendent. Prof.-ssor
Norton sald he would vote f..r McKlnley because
the Republleaa platform stands for gold, al?
though he would have prcferred to vote for a
Democrat on a gold platform. He added that the
currency sltuath.n ls now very grave, and ls
llkely to rematn unsettled for yeara to come.
General Francls Peabody, a well-kn.wn club
man, who ran as Democratlc candidate for
Mayor of Boston ln 1W4. said: "At preaent I
wlll say my Intention ia to vote for McKlnley,
but I want to know what the alternatlve ls
golng to be. There may be none. It's a bad
sltuatlon all around. The flnanclal question ls
the paramount question of the day. No doubt,
the silver party thn-atens the pmsperity. yes,
even the very existence of the Natlon as a llrst
clas3 power; so you may wager that I am not
going to do anythlng that wlll endanger the
electlon of a sound-ni.mey candidate. I will not
have anythlng to do with a free-silver man.
There ls George Fred Wlliiams?why, 1 haven't
words to cxpress, my contempt for hlm.''
Osborne How.-s, whose promlnenee ln the
TarifT Reform League nnd as an edltorial
writer of "The Boston Herald,*' make hlm well
known as a rabid Democrat. said: "I ahall not
support the free-silver nominee of the Demo?
cratlc Conventlon, an.l If the Republlcans hold
to their declarallon for the gold standard, and
I odn't s.-e how they can do otbsrwtss, I shall
vote for McKinley."
Edward Atklnson fawrrsd B thlrd party, with
no Fresldentlal candidate. but a good platform
and with an alm at glvlng control in Congress
to sound-money men.
Professor Xnthaniel Haler, dean of the Law
renee BclentlflC School al Harvard, sald: "I left
the Democratlc party yesterday, and much as
I dislike Mr. McKinley, I shall vote for hlm next
Novembsf unless we have a sound-money Dem
oeratie tlcket. '

HOW BRYAN'S NOMINATION WAS RE
CEIVED IN THE HOTELS.
GENERAL ASTONl. HMKNT-LISOCSTED DBMO
CRAT3? BBPVBUC_jrg PL.EASED AND
CONFIDKNT.
In vlew of the fact that yesterday waa nomlnatlng
day at Chlcago. an hour before the Conventlon met
eager little groupa of polltlclans, buslr.ess men and
others lntereated In the proe.redlngs of the Demo?
cratlc Natlonal Conventlon began to gather around
the tlckers ln the varioua hotela uptown. The
utmoet interest waa manlfeate. in the reports. and
when the worda "Bryan ta nomlnated" came tlck
Ing over the wlre there was not a man who d!d not
gasp and say, "Well. I never!" or somethlng slm
llar. It waa a surprise of the greatest klnd. and
every one was daaed for a moment and too much
surprlsed to talk about lt. Bryan was praetically
an unknown quantlty to all, and there were eager
quenes aa to who he waa, where he came from,
what hls record was, and why he ahould have been
chosen. There were few men who eould answer
theae qtiestlons. and when the tlck.r announced
further that tha Conventlon had 'aken a recesa
untll 8 o'clock the little groupa thlnned out, and
thoae who had haunted tha machlne went away
with troubled facea.
There were many polltlclans of note ln the clty
yesterday. Far from the enthuslasm and madd"ning
stampede of tho Convention, they eould vlew the
altuatlon calmly and apeak dispeesionately. There
were very few found who commendel the nomlna?
tlon or expresse.l the bellef that Bryan would be
elect.-d. Rerhapa the true feeling of the Democrats
in the clty waa cor.densed Into a few words by
Major Dickensplel, of Cindnnatl, a well-known
Democrat of the Buckeye State. Ho waa ln the
HofTman House when the nomlnatlon _ame in, and
he aald bltterly: "I am a Democrat and have al
ways been a Democrat. No one eould accuae that
Conventlon of belng a Democratlc one. I have
never voted any tlcket In my llfe except the Demo?
cratlc tlcket, but 1 shall vote for McKlnley this
year. I cannot countenance the Chlcago platform
or the man on It. I work for all the money I get,
and I do not get aa much as I want as it ls. I can?
not afford to have my lr.come chopped In two by
tbe adoptlon of a fanatical free-colnage money eyB
tem. The people that would be hurt most by the
adoptlon of a system of free colnage are the work?
lng pe.ple and the men who work for a aalary. Thla
ticket cannot and must not wln."
TKVING TO MAKE THE BEST OF IT.
John W. Book walter, once a candidate for Gov
e**r.or of Ohlo. leaned over the tape in the Hoffman
House and chlrpe_ with mrprlae. He Is a wealthy
man, but a radlcal free-colnage rran. He kept '.n
sistlnt? that MrfiBsn or Stevenson would be the
nomlnee, and plalr.ly dld not favor Bryan. Ab the
stampede for Bryan continued, he gritted hla teeth
and declsred thr.t somethlng would be done yet to
roind up ihe ?tarr.peded ones. Wlun Bryan's noml?
natlon was asanrsd, h3 sald that, wblle he was not
well acqualnted wlrh the "Boy Orator of the
Platl.," ne feit sura he would make a go:.d candi?
date, and that he would wln. The lack of en
thuaUam shown by Mr. Bookwalter was also manl
fe-:.-l by olher free-co.nage men, and lt was
traced by one keen observer to the fact that tho
old-llne Democracy had been ignored and thnt a
new man had been brought to the fror.t. This re
pudllttOQ of the oid-tlme Democrats ia looked upon
by many aa a alap in the face for the "old guard,"
and many defectlona wlll be due to it, lt is de?
clared.
Oeneral Chartsa H. Grosvenor. member of Con
Krees from Ohlo, the .tatiaticlan of the recent Mc?
Kinley campaign, acame down . talrs ln the Fifth
Avenue Hotel carrylng a large bundle of lettera
anJ Io_k!n_- happy just as Bryan's nomlnatlon waa
announced. The General sails for Europe to-day
to be aone for two montha, and ho says that the
fall will be tlme enough to take up McKlnley'a
campal&n. He was manlfestly eurprteed at the
nomlnatlon of Bryan, and aald wonderlngly:
"Bryan. Bryan? Why, that ean't be." On belng
aaani-d that such waa the case. he remarked:
"W. 11. I am not sure but what lt ls about aa good
a nomlnitlon as the party eould. make. Those fel?
lowa out there are pecul ar, and Bryan aulted them
botter than any one else. They dld not want any
of tho old roostera llke Bland, Boles and %o on. and
the ahortest cut aeross the lot waa to Bryan. What
th_ Democratlc pnrty ls looking for la oblivion.
They wanted a candidate who eould be snuffed out
w.'hout haTing the tradltions of th? party .. attered.
Such a man ls Bryan. He ls young. He Is a prod
uct ot the aystaan of evolutlon. or rather dlalntegra
tlon. that hns been (rolng on wlthln the party. He
ls a man of the moment. A speech brought hlm to
th-? front and n_mlnat-d hlm. I am not sure but
thr.t he ls the str.ng-eat man that the free-al'ver
men eould n< .r.lnate, as he '.a well known ln the
WSSt, but they had no one atrong enough to carry
the ele. .'in this fall. It wlll be a pyroteehn.e cam

TWO 8ADDENED SENATOR8.
The two eadlest men at the Fifth Avenue Hotel
yesterday were Senator Arthur P, Gorman, of
Maryland, and 3.nat..r Watson C. BOjttlf*, of Wash
Inston. Both, to aaa the expre. ?l.-.n of a local c.leb

that ihe Conventlon would be control'ed by the free
