THErDEMOCRATIC MESS
'(Reports Direct from Baltimore
, by Unite&Press Wire.)'
William Jennings Bryan caused f and
the most tremendous sensation of;
.the Democratic convention at 2
o'clockytpday.
. He publicly renounced his -instructions
for Clark because Clark
was seeking the nomination with
the aid pf"Boss Murphy of Tam-
'many Hall.
, He then cast his vote for Woo'd-
row Wilson and announced he
would continue to vote for Wil
son unless ihe New Jersey gov;
Bryan explained his change of
vote from the platform after the
Clark men had done their best t$
prevent his gettin a hearing. r
When he did so it was at last
fully understood why the Nebras
kah had persistently refused to
choose between Clark and Wil
son. . i
He had been waiting to see if
there was any truth in the rumor
that Clark had allied himself with
the Ryan-Belmont-Murphy ou&
fit. '
And he considered Boss Mur
phy's smftch to Clark on the 10th'
ballot as such proof.
The thirteenth ballot resulted
in no nomination. In the middle
of it Bryan sought the platfonft
spoke to Chairman "Ulue
James. r
This caused uneasiness among
the Clatk leaders. They flockecj
to the platform and talked to
Bryan. '
It was learned that Bryan haft
asked James for a chance to ex
plain to the convention why he
was going to chance his vote.
