today by Congressman James Mann, the

It was District5 day1 in the House,

Mr. Mann, who is not a member ofthe

said: "I do not see how these crossing

In explaining the loan shark bill, Con
gressman .Dyer, its-author, said: "The

William Jennings Bryan Jumped
right into: the thick ot the fighting,
three mlnutet after, the eDmocratic
naUonal commltteo was called to

Bryan Starts Action.
There had been a determined effort 'to
harmonize and avoid a blr fight over
the Tennessee and Pennsylvania contests
for places on the commltteo. But tho
firtt two minutes of the session made
plain that the hannonlsers had reckon
ed without their host Mr. Bryan being
the host. And a right belligerent host
he propmtly proved himself.
Harmony' basis was to have been
laid In a deal to seat Mountcastle from
Tennessee, and Cuftcy from Pennsyl
vanla. They are? both "regulars," and
it has been urged that if Mountcastle
won In his State the same logic woula
compel the ; seating cf Guftey ln the
other. But - the Toclo didn't iket anv-

Oil, man, in Pennsylvania, too; - The
allusions were' to Vertre'es : alleged
Standard OH attorney lii Tennessee, and
Guffey, Standard Oil emissary. In Penn
sylvania. That was, tho Bryan atti
tude. He was against both of 'em,
and logic might, go hang.
As .soon as the committee was called
to order In theassembly room at the
Shoreham, a few minutes .after 'noon,
the roll call was started. The first
name, alphabetically, was Alabama, and
when Its committeeman's, name, James
Weatheriy, was read, Mr. Bryan moved
that he be seated.
Chairman Mack said the motion was
not necessary; Weatheriy had been
duly elected 'by. the State committee of
Alabama to fill a vacancy.
Mr. Bryan didn't see It that way. With
his eye' watching the lower end of the
alphabetical" list, be wanted to establish,
right there, the precedent of the na
tional commmee. puuing ii. vise on ine
action of State committees In .such
cases. Guffey had been been elected by
a Pennsylvania State .committee, too,
but Mr. Bryan didn't like to concede at
the beginning that that was final.
So the real row was on. A point of
order was made against Mr. Bryan's
contention; Chairman Mack upheld It;
the Nebraskan appealed; and with
things brightening up toward the fever
heat, Committeeman poughlan of Mas
sachusetts moved that the sessions be
executive. It carried, doors were closed.
and the scrap proceeded In privacy.
It was quite apparent from the atti
tude of Chairman Mack and the leaders
that Bryan's fight was well-nigh hope
less. Mack had immediately at hand
the' resolution of the last convention,
which placed tho power of seating na
tional committeemen solely In the hands
of the' Btate committees, and was evi
dently prepared to declare that the com-,
mtttee had no Jurisdiction, when Palmer
