H.u.TiMor.K, June 30. William ,1. llryan Ing. Ho arrived home early to-day from
disclosed to-night that John W. Kern of J Baltimore, feeling ruffled and breathing
Indiana is the man that he would like political fire and brimstone against Bogrt
to see nominated for President. t Mr.
Bryan In a public statement suggests
Kern In the ecent that no arrangement
can be made between iov. Wilson's
people nnd Speaker Clark's followers
whlch'would be satisfactory to the pro
gressives. Mr. llryan also mentions
Senator James of Kentucky, Senator
Culberson of Texas, Senator P.ayner of 1

men, ne cienny uiscioses ins prcierenci:

"It ought to I nsy to compromise on
a man like Senator Kern." .
It hns long been rumored that the
Indiana Senator was Bryan's real
choice, and to-night's statement Is ac
cepted as conclusive proof. Bryan's
suggestion also Is regarded ns Indicat
ing his belief thnt neither Wilson nor
Clark can be named.
Mr. l'.ryjn's statement also contain." ai

upon the progressive vote and his de

statement to unother denunciation r
what ho considers a llynn-B'linont-Murphy
Hlliance and repeats that no
candidate must accept New York's ninety
votes in order to get tho necessary two
thirds. He sptaks rf "enforcing" and
"imposing" his will on the convention.
He insists that the candidate for Vice
President must be equally ns trustworthy
ns the candidate for President, because
the progressives would not be satisfied
with only one life between a progressive
Adininieirnlion antl reactionary control.
The Commoner assumes that an agree
ment could be reached easily if Speaker
( lark will agree with Gov Wilon not lo
accept the Murphy support
Mr. Bryan's statement is as follows:
"I see no reason why we should not con
clude the convention to-morrow with the
nomination of both President and a Vice
President "ihe friend" of the various i-audidates

BaI.timork, June 30. After a close per
sonal and political association of sixteen
years Cham p Clark of Missouri has parted
company with William J. Bryan of Ne
braska. In a letter addressed to Senator
W. J. Stone of Missouri, made public to

The break between Bryan and Clark
has been expected for a week. That it
adds fuel to the flame or factionalism is
admitted by every leader in Baltimore.
Mr. Clark's pronouncement against Bryan
intensities the Dernocratio fight. Ho

Mr. Clark's letter was written in re-
siwnse to one addressed to him by Sen-
ator Stono. who outlined the situation
in Baltimore and informed Mr. ( lark
that if it whs his purpose to stay in the
race his Minnorters woultl vote for him
on every ballot cast in the convention.
Mr. Stono pointed out that tho majority
oT tho convention had sided with tho
Speaker on at least one ballot and that the
failure to give him the nomination in
these circumstances was a violation of
a party practice that.hatl been observed
for sixty years. Mr. Clark's letter follows:

Baltimore, Juno 30. William J. Bryan
issued a statement to-night in which he
repeated his attack on Champ Clark and
characterized the New York delogates oa'
wax figures. Here is the statement:
"My statement which appeared in the
Baltimore American this morning was
prepared nnd given to tho press Ijeforo I
saw Mr. Clark's statement. As it covers
the subject quite fully I need only add.
nnd thnt for empluisls, that the only
criticism I have made against Mr. Clark
Is not that be lias acted wrongfully but
that he has failed lo act.
I may overestimate tho importance of
the Presidential office, but I have felt thnt
an aspirant for that office ought to manage
hia own campaign and not allow people
to do things for him without his direct
and specific authority.
"The papers announced that Mr. Clark
was neutral between Mr. Parker nnd my
self in the temporary chairmanship
fight and that he informed his supporters
to vote on they pleased. If that contest
wero purely a question between Judge
Parker and myself as individuals, his
refusal to take part would not be material.
although he never sent out a piece of
literature or naa a speocn matie in nn
behalf thut Hid not re n resent, him ns mv
special champion for sixteen years."
"If ho distributed any literature in which
ho associated his name with Mr. Parker's
I shall be glad to wltlidrawt his statement
upon insjs-ction of the literature.
"But the contest between Judge Parker 1
and myself was not a personal contest,
and everyliody except Mr. Clark knew
this. It was a contest between pro
gressive Democracy on the one side and
reactionary Democracy on the other,
and I contend that in such a contest it
was Mr. Clark's duty to take ono aide or
tho other it in his judgment there is any
material difference between the two kinds
"If he Insists tliat there is no difference
then he has no right to complain of criti
cism at the hands of those who do believe
that then is a vital difference.
But the activity of Mr. Clark's
managers is as objectionable as his own
Inactivity. They have been in constant
cooration with the reactionaries. If
Mr. Clark did not authorize them to act
ho has, so far as I knorw, failed toTebuke
them for acting.
"I take it for granted that he does not
object to the action of his managers in
soliciting, or ot least in accepting without
protest, the support or the ninety war
figures which Mr. Murphy under tho unit
rule uses to carry out tho will of the pred
"The publio is not much interested in
Mr Clark's opinion of me. He will have
ample time In which to express his opin
ion after tho convention, whother ho is
nominated or not, but if I am any judge
of the news value of items tho people
would Hko to know immediately whether
he believes that the New York delega
tion, vhieh is completely under tho
domination of Mr. Murphy antl which
contains among its number representa

IlALTiMonK, June 30, So many at

of candidates to stampede the convention

tactics, Tho famci bectired by Mrs. Davis
in Chicago when she turned a Hadley
demonstration into a long hurrah for
Boosevelt beems to huve mado dozens
of women attending this convention
ambitious to equal her performance.
Whenever a demonstration starts for
Clark, Wilson or Underwood, it doesn't
matter which, the boosters quickly put
forward a girl to lead the cheering. So
far tho daughter or Chump Clark, the
daughter of (lov. Brewer of Mississippi
and Miss Gladys Hogau of this city have
been most active.
Miss Clark stood for half un hour on
the speaker's platform the other night
waving a Clark banner and having net

which he suggested five men as com
They were Cnlted States Senator John
W. Kern of Indiana, Senator-elect Ollle
James of Kentucky, Senator Culberson
of Texas, Senator Bayner of Maryland
and Senator O'Gorman of New York.
Bryan a'so served notice that the
candidate' for Vice-President must bo
as acceptable to the progressives as the
candidate for President.
Bryan also called upon Woodrow
Wilson for a statement that he will
not accept the nomination If It is to
come to him In any way that will obli
gate him to Charles K. Murphy. The
Impression to-night Is that the Com
moner Is now mnncBuvrelng to put Wil

William R. Hearst in a statement
given out late to-night predicted tho
defeat of the Democrats at tho polls

for his attitude toward Clark.
Illinois to Go to Wilson.
Members of tho Illinois delegation said
to-night that a break would be made by
a largo number of the delegates from that
Slate from Clark to Wilson to-morrow.
They announced that the shift would
come at about tho fifth ballot.
One of the reasons why Illinois i ex
pected to desort Clark is that Boger Sulli
van, the Illinois boss, was sore all through
to-day because he was not invited to tho
I Clark-Hearst -Murphy conference early
When Champ Clark came to town the
llrst man he talked to, except n few of
his immediato managers, was William R,
HearBt shortly nftPr Charle . .Murphy
was invited to talk things over. Flora,
time to time other leaders, like Senator
Stono of Missouri, hod Ihecnrof Mr, Clark,
but at no time fis theio an invitation
sent to the man who has been steadily
swinging fifty-eight votes to Clark.
When Sullivan got up to-day and heard
of pnr,j. , w
invited ho was a,
hich he had not been
angry. Ho talked the
.arrangement was then made, according
to tho private information given out by
Illinois delegates to-night, that Illinois
severe wrench for him to part from Clark,
Thero was nn informal meeting of the
Illinois delegation this morning and forty
six t.r tho fifty-eight votes wero for Wil
son. The situation in Baltimore lias resolved
itself to-night into this question: Can
Champ Clark hold together enough
votes, to prevent the, nomination of
Throughout this day of conf erenow i
tho Indications were that Wilson had
continued to gather strength and that
ho would enter tho convention whoa
it reconvenes at 11 o'clock to-mnrrow
morning with a '.considerable iricrejisa
over the 407J4 votes cast for him on tho
twenty-sixth and last ballot last night.
The Wilson managers are predicting
to-night that the Governor's total would
go beyond tho 600 mark at to-morrow'
fcesslon. They regard a Wilson viotory
ns sure and contend that it will be only a
question of wearing down what remains
of the Clark strength. To accomplish
this the Wilson delegates are prepared to
stay on tho ground all summer if neces
sary. The Clark men, on the other hand, are
plainly depressed over tho b'pcqker'a
chances, but they contended to-night
that thoy havo at least tto delegates who
will stand by Clark until the heavens fall.
It is through their hold on theso tin dele
gates that tho Clark managers expect lo
be able lo prevent the nomination of
Wllrcn. If they cnnt mm the tide luck
to Clark they think thut nt leaM they can
prevent the nomination of tho Jerseyman.
To exercise this veto power, Speaker
Cliu-k needs only SHJ delegates, so that 1
