More than 3 Hours.
Place Not Offered, Aeoording to

[By Tflcajraph to The Trtbuna. 1
Trenton, Dec. 21.?Wllliam Jennlngs
Bryan had a heart-to-heart talk to-day
with Governor Wllsr . over the policies
of the Democratlc party and the make
up of tho Presldent-elect's Cabinet,
during which the names of many pro
spectlve Cabinet offlcers were dlscussed.
When lt was all over, some three and n
half hours after the "Commoner" had
entered the prlvate offlce of the New
Jersey Oovernor. the Presldent-elect
assured the newspaper men that Mr.
Prynn's name had not rnmo up during
the conference, and that his mind so
far as Cabinet appolntmonts were eon
(?erned was Just ns open as lt was last
When Mr. Bryan was asked lf lt were
true he had called on Governor Wilson
not as a candidate for offlce?ln fact,
wlth the Intention of rejecting nny
such offer lf lt were tendered to him,
but slmply aa a Democratlc leader?he
replled: "I wlll not discuss my con?
ference wlth tho President-elect more
than to say that I came here to eonfer
Mr. Bryan's meetlng with the Presl
dent-elect was th-> flrst slnce October
?3 last, when Mr. Wilson waa the "Coin
moner's" guest nt hls home In Elncoln,
Ncb., and although the door of Gor?
ernor Wilson's prnnto offlce waa wtde
open no ono would have suspected that
a conference wns in progress, not tbe
lcast sound comlr.g from wlthln.
"I Am So Glad to See You."
Mr. Bryan, ae. HBpaaled by Joseph
R. Tumulty, Governor Wilson's seere?
tary. walked Into the executive offlce,
where Governor Wilson was busy dlc
tatlng letters, nt 0 30 o'clock.
"Why, Mr. Bryan. I am so glad to aee
you," was the Presldent-elect's greet
"Hello. Oovernor"' Mr. Bryan r*>
sponded. "I'm so glad to see you look
ing so well."
And frnm then until 1 o'clock the
Pre.sldent-elftct and Mr. Bryan sat and
tnlked ln a corner of the Governor*
offlce, removed from the eyes and ears
of any one who might happen bo vent
ure too close to the doorway. A call
for luncheon brought Governor Wilson
to the door.
In replylng to the newspaper men's
questions the Prealdcnt-elect said ho
had a very delightful confer?rnM wlth
Mr. Bryan, but had < ome to no con
clusion. "We. talktd about the policies
of the party," he sald. "the varlous
planks ln the pl.-itform, and we talk'd,
<rf courae, ahout the varlous Cabinet
The Presldent-elect sald all of the
Cabinet plans bad not been dlscussed,
but that names suggested had come up
ln a general way.
"I'id you discuss names suggested by
Mr. Bryan?" he was asked.
"I do not know whether they were
suggestod by Mr. Bryan or myself." he
"Was Mr. Bryan's name considered
ln connection wlth a Cabinet port
folio?" waa the next question put to
"It waa not," sald Mr. Wilson, wlth
"Vou gentlemen must learn sooner or
later that you must take me nt my
word. I have told you repeatedly that
I have reached no decislons, and I ob?
ject very much to questlons which put
my word in doubt. Another thlng I
hiive learned, and that ls that appar

lt is seldom that the headllnes coric

Special Session Not Diacutsed.
They had not dlscussed the special
sesslon of Congrcsa, Governor Wilson
sald. In fact, the Governor asserted
they had talked over so many things
tliat he could not plck out nny one
without going over the entire conver
Mr. Bryan did not appear ln the best
of humor when ho came out of the Gov
ernor's offlce. His answera to the news?
paper men wero short and evasive, and
he would parry each lnterrogatlon wlth
a short and not very deflnite anawer,
followed by "Well, what's the next
It was apparent from Mr. Bryan'e
manner that lf he had come to eonfer
with the Presldent-elect wlth the ex
pectatlon of havlng a Cabinet place of?
fered to him he bad been dlsappolntcd.
In answer to questionn as to the make
up of the Cabinet ha replled facetlou-ly
tliat he "did not want to contradlct
Mr. Bryan sald lt waa cuatomary to
allow the President lo make Cabinet
announoementa, addlng a moment later,
"You don't doubt the Goveraor'a vera
city, do you?"
When some one mentioned an attaek
on some currency ide.as of "The Com?
moner." he replled tartly that he did
not remember advocating anythlng
that was not attacked. ?
??Wlll you accept a plaoe ln the Cabi?

"Did you aak Governor Wllaon that

"Dld you auggeat to the ? Presldent

"No." he replled; "wo ~??re too busy

Mr. Bryan waa told that Colonel
Henry Watterson had auggested ln an
editorial ln "The Loulaville Courler
Journal" that the Presldent-elect
should name Mr. Bryan aa Ambaasador
to the Court of SL Jamea'a.
"Colonel Watteraon and I havo not

"Was the aubjeet mentioned by Oov?

"When you leavo New Tork, Mr.

"I will return to Florida, where I wlll

"i hope to attend the Inauguratlon."
"Will you contlnue to make your

"Ye.?." he aaid, "It wlll be my home,

"It hns been announced, Mr. Bryan,
that you have rented a eulte of offlce
