William Jennlngs Bryan was there,
and this was the reason openly glven
by Mr. Murphy's friends why the Tam?

The feeltng of aloofneaa found an
echo at some of the other tables be
sides that occupied by tiie speakers and
guests. Lewis Ktuyvesant Chanler,
fnrmer "Lieutenant Governor. found
himself placed at a table where he did
not recognlze a single _?a known to

a seat among m**h with whom he was
acfjuainted, but failing to Ue ao-om
modatcd, he left the dinner to satlsfy
his hunger at his club.
