A number of curiously Interesting po
lltlcat tales nro related these day by
Democratlo pilgrims to President-elect
Woodrovv Wilson's shrine at Trenton.
One of particular nolo wnsj emphasized
yesterday for tho purposo of giving t
tho Domocruts of the country nn Idea,
of thu importanco or Col. William J.
Rrynn, which his friends have sought
to Impress upon the Democrats, espe
cially those of tho Hrynn coterie. In
Somehow or other after Col. Hrynn's
visit to the President-elect nt Trenton
Immediately nfter Gov. Wilson's return
from Uermuda Democrnts who at the
moment nro more or less affiliated with
the Ptijo investlRiitlnn In Wnshlngton
became rnther Impressed with a re
markablo Interpretation of that visit.
They gained' this interpretation either
directly or Indirectly rrom Col. Hrynn
and his llttlo group of followers In
Washington. It was to the effect that
President-elect Wilson tentatively had
pone over u list of fifty possibilities for
the Cabinet with Col. Rrynn, and whIW
nothing was decided ut that visit
Rryun's friends havo gathered a notion
that as Secretary of State In President
Wilson's Cabinet he is practically to
name the recipients of nil other post.1
In the President's official family: Theie
wero Democrats hereubout yesterday
who declared without reserve that Col.
Hryan himself was responsible for thli
tale of his all absorbing prominence as
a Cabinet maker.
It wuh said peremptorily nnd con
clusively yesterday by those who ought
to be aware of the facts os to what lia-l
taken place between the. President-elect
and Col. Hrynn on tho visit in ques
tion that nothing occurred at that time
nnd nothing has occurred since which
would wurrunt CoL Bryan or his friends
in assuming that the Nebrnskan Is to
be a cogent forco or anything like that
In nanilnR the President-elect's Cabinet.
Nevertheless It wns remarked that
Jotephus Daniels of North Carolina
nnd Representative Albert Sidney Bur
leson of Texan and their friends have
been inclined to accept the version of
Col. Rryun's vlBlt to Trenton, namely,
that Bryan was to be all powerful In
putting tho final O. K. on the President-elect's
selections for the Cabinet.
Nothing could be further from the
truth. It wub reliably stated yesterday
by Important Democrats who have dis
cussed affairs with the President-elect.
Gov. Wilson has nothing but the most
pleasant words to say of CoL Bryan,
but It was added that any assumption
on tho port of Bryan or Bryan's
friends that Bryan Is to bo Wilson's
Cabinet maker la very far from the
It turns out, according to the earns
reliable authorities, who are conversant
with the situation at Trenton, that
Representative A. Mitchell Palmer of
Pennsylvania, who has been mentioned
for Attorney-General, and Mr. Palmer's)
friends had gathered tho Impression
that Bryan by tho turn of a hand or
the wink of nn eyelid could put Mr.
Palmer In President Wilson's Cabinet
ns the chief law otrlcer of the Govern
ment. Gov. Wilson again, It waa said,
hns all sorts of pleasant words to say
of Representative Palmer, but Mr. Wil
son, it was lidded. Is not quito con
vinced that Mr. Palmer could aerva
the Democratic party as well In th
Cabinet ns he could on the floor of the
House of Representatives.
The Democratic managers ot Wllson'al
flfiht nt Baltimore, headed by IWIlllam
F. McCombs, now chairman of tha
Democratlo National Committee, It was
remarked, are well aware that while
Col. Bryun defeated Speaker Champ
Clark for the nomination, be did noth
ing affirmatively to bring; about Gov.
Wilson's nomination, and speaking ot
Mr. Palmer, it was made known yester
day for tho first time that when Col.
Vtrynn In Baltimore Issued his authori
tative statement forty-eight hours be.
foro Wilson wasi nominated, In which
ho called upon the convention to select
u compromise In the person of the lato
Senator Rayner of Maryland or Senator
O'Gorman of New York or Senator Cul
berson of Texas nnd nevernl others,
that a secret conference of Bryan's
friends hud been held, at which Repre
sentative Palmer wus proffered the
nomination for Vice-President, he to

The remnrkublo fenturo of this Inci

ui.d thut he ntteniled the Hrynn confer
ence, it wuh stated, without tho knowl
edge of Mr. McCombs, who was Wil
son's manugor In tho convention city.
Moreover, It came out yesterday that
Mr. McCombs took Mr. Palmer to task
for (ittcndltiB thut secret conference, at
widch Mr. Tnlmer frankly admitted to
Mr. McCombs that he had been offered
tho Vlcc-Presldentlal nomination by Mr.
Bryan's friends and that Mr. Palmer

floor leader In the convention.
