When Frank B. K>llo returned to the Waldorf
-with William 1* Ward at 5:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon he was met by Elmer Dover, secretary
of th« Republican National Committee. There was
a big ctack of telegrams and messages of various
kinds waiting for him at the desk. One of the
telegrams consisted of two typewritten pages.
After reading his dispatches Mr. rrlilsfs: hur
riedly excused himself from Mr. Ward and Mr.
Dover and called up Mr. Taft on the long distance
telephone. He was In the booth for some time.
Mr. Kellogg and Mr. Ward Jokingly evaded all

TOWNE AT BRYAN'S HOME.
Working for Second Place on Ticket
— Leader Is Reticent.
Lincoln, Xeb.. July I.— Charles A. Towne, of New-
York, was a visitor at Kairview this afternoon and
left here for Denver to-night. Mr. Towne, who is
an avowed candidate for the Democratic nomina
tion for Vice-President, as well as an oldtime per
sonal friend of Mr. Bryan, stopped off here for the
express purpose of discussing Vice-Presidential
politics. Mr. Bryan was expecting him, and for
half an hour they remained closeted.
At the close of the interview Mr. Bryan said
that he had been glad to see Mr. Towne. lie had
nothing further to say. Mr. Towne admitted to
newspaper men that his candidacy as well as the
platform had formed the main topic of conversa
•'New York is the logical state to furnish the
Vice-Presidential nominee." said Mr. Towne. "The
public do not seem to realize the number of
Democrats there are In Northern New York. I am
not surprised at the declination of Judge Gray to
be mentioned for Vice-Presldent. I have expected
it right along. Judge Gray is a strong man. a
popular man with all classes, he has ability, a
magnetic personality and marked attainments.
However, I have been assured by friends from all
parts of the country of support for myself. As
surances of an unmistakable character were given
me by leading New York Democrats before I would
permit the use of my name."
•What will be done with the anti-injunction
plank at Denver?" Mr. Towne was asked.
"It should be a strong one— one that does not
hedge. The laboring man will be protected."
Previous to Mr. Towne's visit, Mr. Bryan had
practically «et at re«t reports that he favored Mr.
• Mr. Towne is quoted as stating that you some,
time ago assured him that he would be acceptable
to you. Is that true?" Mr. Bryan was asked.
"He meant that he was favorable to them." said
Mr. Bryan, with stress on the last word, and with
a wave of the arm indicated the galaxy of favorite
sons whose names have been mentioned in con
nection with the nomination for a running mate.
Mr. Bryan is silent on all matters pertaining to
probable action by the convention in order to* dis

His intimates here have taken the cue, and if he
has confided his wishes to any of them they are
guarding their secrets well. Mayor Brown, who is
a delegate-at-large and Nebraska's choice for mem

credited with being the man in Lincoln who knows
Mr. Bryan's wishes regarding a platform. He and
Mr. Bryan see each other almost daily and talk
freely by telephone. Mr. Brown is in thorough
sympathy with Mr. Bryan on all political subjects
and will closely reflect the letter's views at Den
So far as can be learned Mr. Bryan will not have
a telegraph wire in his house during the convention.
He will depend on the wires being strung into a
cottage three hundred yards away for the con

John M. Garman, a delegate from the 11th (
Pennsylvania district, paid his respects to Mr. J

These resolutions were drawn up as the result of
an Informal meeting of leading Democrats from
various states on the day of the Cleveland funeral.
Judge Parker, who took them with him when he
left here for Denver yesterday, will introduce them
after the address of the temporary chairman. The
convention will bo asked to adjourn until the next
day in respect to the memory of ex-President
Cleveland. The resolutions are as follows:
Be it resolved. That before entering formally
upon the special and important work for which
this national convention of the Democratic party
of the United States has been called vr • take the
earliest opportunity solemnly to express our grief
over the death of Groyer Cleveland. We record
our profound appreciation of his lofty character,
his commanding ability and his unfailing wisdom.
We indulge a just pride that Ms patriotic and un
selfish services, rendered to his country in the
time of need, were made possible as the repre
sentative and the chosen candidate of the Demo
cratic party for President in three of its national
conventions. We mourn his loss the more because
his great gifts of mind and heart, so cheerfully
and ao effectively devoted to its services over a
period of fifty-two years, are no longer to be at
the command of his party and his country.
In thus giving expression to th>» keen sense of
loss felt, without reference to political opinion, by
our fellow citizens throughout the country, we
recognize and commend hi.- faithfulness at all
times and under all circumstances to the settled
traditions a.id policies of the Democratic party as
exemplified by its declarations >>f principles, by its
acts and bv'the ideas and utterances of all its
great leaders from the days of Thomas Jefferson
to those of Samuel J. Tilden.
Although Mr. Cleveland's important work was
done and hif greatest responsibility assumed in the
execution of federal authority, he upheld with all
the force of his mind, with heroic devotion to prin
ciple and with all the power of his great office and
Influence the rights of th* state and local govern

serting and maintaining that jusl distribution of
powers which so distinguishes the political system
bequeathed by the founders of the republic.
He respected the integrity of our courts and

that every honest man or interest might Jse pro

On the one hand, lie consistently pressed upon
hIH countrymen tbe necessity for a revision of our
tariff laws" which should strip away every vestige
of favor, remove every excuse or reason for monop
oly and destroy every harbor in which privilege is
wont to find shelter, while, on the other hand, b*
enforced that economy In expenditure which he
believed would eliminate the corruption entailed
from an »ra of extortion and extravagance against
which his whole career wa.^ a protest.
He maintained the public credit and honor,
stood firm as a rock in defence of sound princi
ples of finance, and resisted the dangerous eco
nomic doctrines and practices left by the Repub
lican party as a heritage to our people.
I'nder lits administration Civil Service reform
was first redeemed from the region of pretension
and become a reality.
He took the Monroe Doctrine out of the realm
of dreams and made it a thing of life and power,
Whicli commands universal respect.
He so insisted that official responsibility was
his bounden duty and the inalienable right of our
people that his motto. "Public office Is a public
trust," was the ruling principle of his life and Is
the fitting epitaph for his monument.
He preserved simplicity of living and character
in a time when ostentation, both public and pri

been raised to the rank of a virtue.

Rochester, July I.— Herman Ridder, of the "Staats
Zeltung," in on the Twentieth Century Limited,
which left New York this afternoon, Mr. Ridder
has assigned to himself the somewhat heroic- task
of personally telling William J. Bryan at Lincoln
on Friday that he cannot carry New Yi.rk if
nominated, and that he would better step aside and
let some one else make the race. It is reported on
the train that Mr. Ridder is wearing a mailed shirt
handed down from the tenth century.
"I shall tell Mr. Bryan," said Mr. Rldder, "that
I shall support him if nominated, because of. his
views on tariff reform and trust regulation, which
are most important. At the same time I shall tell
him that in the present state of public sentiment
he will probably lose New York, and that it may
be wise for the convention to name some one else."

MONXKTT OH INJUNCTION PLANK.
Frank S. Monnett. Republican Attorney Gen- j
eral of Ohio- from I*!*! to 11»<X», arrived here to
day. Mr. Monnett was In conference with Mr.
Bryan rt Lincoln yesterday, as the result of
which he says he will have Mr. Bryan's indorse- .
ment in appearing before the resolutions com
mittee of the convention to give the legal and
political reason why thu injunction plank should
pledge the Democratic party to an amendment
of the law in these three particulars, which are
as already given in The Tribune:
First— To prevent the issuing of the writ in in
dustrlal disputes, except after notice to defend
ants and full hearing; second, to permit trial
before a Judge other than the one who issued
the writ. and. third, to allow a jury to be sum
moned ir. all cases where the legal contempt
is committed outside the province of the court. j
That Mr. Bryan has heretofore taken his stand |
on an injunction plank containing thew i
ments is asserted by Mr. Monnett. and th« fact
that Mr. Bryan requested Mr. Monnett to urge
their acceptance by the resolutions committee is
taken by the Ohioan to mean that Mr. Bryan will
be satisfied with nothing less.
After meeting and perfecting a temporary or- j
ganization next Tuesday, the Democratic con- ;
vention will adjourn for the day out of resp*. t
to the memory of former President Cleveland, if
the present plans of the committee on arrange
ments are carried Into effect. The committee ,
has not reached the point of making a definite
announcement, but the question has been re
cently discussed, and the expression g-nerally
favored that this course be taken. The pro
gramme looks to the completion of the work
of the convention within three days.

before the Chamber of Commerce in this city.
The occasion was what has been termed "re-em
ployment" or "sunshine" day.
Senator Foraker declared that the business de
pression has been caused by the Sherman anti
trust law and the Hepburn railway rate law. and
that it was being continued by the promise of tar
iff revision. In speaking of the future, he re
ferred to Mr. Taft as a "man who in character Is
all that could be desired." and he was interrupted
by cheers. When the applause had ceased he con
"But unfortunately there is one fatal weakness
in the candidate, in that he favors a continuance
of the so-called Roosevelt policies, of which we
have already had far too much."
DELAGRANGE TO COME.
Italian Will Make Flights in His

No. 2 East 2'th street, last night ttiat Leon Dela

plane, covering a period of three days, in the
T'nited States, for $V>."oo. The offer was made to
Mr. Triaea individually, not as an officer of the
society. He said later that if the society did not
care to bring Delagrange here, he would do so.
\V. R Kimbaii and Lee S. Burridge explained
the financial benefit they 'believed would accrue to
the society by taking over the contract from Mr.
Triaea at the proper time, and the members were
unanimous in favor of recommending the commit
tee to do so.
Mr. Burridge said he had approached C. J. Fitz
gerald. \-ice-pre3ident of the Brighton Beach Rac
ing Association, concerning the rental of its park
for the Delagrange exhibitions. "If this society
can't make 15,000 or $10,000 on such a contract as
Delagrange is willing to make we haven't the.
right to live." said Mr. Bin I Mate He said he had
also interested Gage E. Tarbell. of the Garden City
Estate, on lying Island, in the proposition.
It was pointed out that abroad two hundred
thousand persons gather in parks to witness aerial
flights, and that even a moderate >* charged here
should prove profitable.
"Why should not D^lagrange. of Italy, show
Americans what Americans have not been per

secrecy Of the Wright brothers, and A. M. Her

NEW RULING REGARDING POISONS.
Appellate Division Holds Seller Is Re
sponsible for Damage to Buyer.
An important decision was handed down yester
duy by the Appellate Division regarding the sale
of poisons. According to lawyers the decision,
affirming r judgment enteied In the Fifth District
Municipal Court, establishes a new precedent In
the sale of poisons.
Heretofore. In effect, the courts have held that
one who purchased a poison knowingly, upon his
own request, suffered any possible damage at hi*
own cost. The new opinion, written by Justice
geabury, in which Justice Maclean and Justice
Glldersleeve concur, upholds the lower court In
its decision that the purchaser of poison for a
specific purpose, if it be used exactly in accordance
with that purpose, can recover if he suffers bodily
The decision is based upon a suit brought by-
Solomon Goldberg against liegeman & Co. for
damages. He got $250 for Injuries sustained from
using a poison from an OsMasßsd bottle.
