Mr. Bryan clearly dominates the resolu
tions committee. By a vote of 41 to 11 he
forctsl through a motion at the meeting
this morning in favor of postMining the
adoption of the platform until after tho
candidates for President and Vice-President
have been nominated. This vote
indicates how thoroughly Mr Bryan com
mands the committee. He declined the
chuirmanshlp of the resolutions com
mittee, although repeatedly urged to
accept it The committee finally decided
to elect Senator John W. Kern as chairman.
Tho motion of Mr. Bryan to postpone
the a doption of the platform was advisory
to tne committee on rules. It expressed
to thai committee, as the sense of the
resolutions committee, tli.it tho making
of tho platform bhould be put off until
after the candidates are named. A sub
committee comiosed or Senator Isador

by tho resolutions committee postponing
the platform. Almost immediately after

of the resolutions committee, nnd vobsl
to report in tho order of business to tho

until after nominations are made.

0'Gorman Submits New
IUltimork. June 2. By a vote of
G65U to -185 2-0 the convention re
versed to-night the action of th Ohio
State convention In applying the unit
rule and binding nineteen delegates
elected for Wilson at the district pri
maries to vote for Harmon.
It was a definite and surprising over
throw for the conservative forces that
had been In control of tho convention.
When tho resolution was announced the
Wilson partisans made a rousing dem
onstration. Tho unit rule vote was regarded as
indicating an Impressive development
of strength In the last twenty-four
hours for Woodrow Wilson and the
Bryan forces. This coupled with the
Woodrow Wilson demonstration to-night
has given his stock a distinct boost.
The Democratic national convention
to-night decided almost unanimously to
defer the adoption of a platform until
the nominees are named. Thla means
that balloting for a candidate for Presi
dent will begin to-morrow.
On the eve of the vote Speaker Champ
Clark appears to be losing strength.
Woodrow Wilson Is gaining ground and
United States Senator John W. Kern of
Indiana and Mayor Gaynor arc the most
promtslng possibilities for a compromli.
Mr. Kern's hat appeared In the ring to
day with the indorsement of William J.
Bryan. He is regarded as an Important
factor in the situation, but Charles F.
Murphy has declined to give him New
The situation In regard to the candi
dates Is chaotic. All that seems certain
Is that Clark will enter the race with
about 450 delegates and Woodrow Wil
son Wilson with about 300. A deadlock
and several ballots are expected.
William J. Bryan again demonstrated
his strength In the convention by bring
ing about the postponement of action on
the platform until the nominations are
made. This action is almost unprece
dented. Bryan carried the motion through the
committee on resolutions by 41 to 11,
thus demonstrating his control over
the body of men who will draft Ihe
platform. He carried the day In the
rules committee, 22 to 16. The antl
Bryan men Intended at first to oppose
this manoeuvre, but finally yielded.
Bryan's purpose In bringing about the
postponement Is said to be a renewal of
his light against the so-called Ryan and
lletmnnt forces In the Democracy. He
Is represented as planning the Insertion
of a plank In the Democratic platform
practically reading Thomas F. Ryan
and August Belmont out of the party.
Senator-elect Ollle James of Ken
tucky, a Bryan man, was selected hy

The chuirmanshlp of the commutes
on resolutions was offered to Bryan, but
he declined It on the ground that he
wanted lo leave his hands free to con
duct any fight that he deemed necessary.
The New York State delegation pre
sented to the resolutions committee a
tentative draft of a platform. This waa
drawn by Senator O'Gorman and la
Two sessions of the convention were
held to-day, and in each the Woodrow
Wilson people made an Impressive dem
onstration in behalf of their candidate.
The Clark men, on the other hand,
seemed depressed. Clark delegates are
threatening to desert on account of the
Speaker's stand against Bryan on th
chairmanship Issue. There were also
reports of dissensions among the Clark
Bryan gave evidence of a disposition
to hold a third party scare over the
heads of the Democratic leaders.
