THE WASHINGTON TDIES, FBIDAT, JUNE 21, 1012.
Convention City Putting on Gala Attire for Event
Selection of Parker Likely
to Precipitate Fight
By THEODORE TILLER.
BALTIMORE. June 21. Wlien mem
bers of tlio national committee went
down to Convention Hall today they
missed the dove of peace, which has
been Hitting nbout the big armory for
the past ten days. The peac- bird flew
away overnight, and everybody knows
the reason why.
Judge Alton B. Parker lias been se
lected temporary chairman of the Demo
cratic convention and Mr. William Jen
nings Bryan will be here about Mon
day. That's all.
A week ago as the delegates and
boomers began to airlve in this Mary
land town, there were many canned in
terviews about a Democratic conven
tion which would be the antithesis of
the squally affair at Chicago. 'Twas
declared that everybody was happy and
that the Democratic gathering would
be a thing to delight Andrew Carnegie
and Congi cssmari Bartholdt, consistent
advocates of a quiet and uneventful
That, however, was last week. In go
ine ahead with the Deace nlana. no one
thought to call up Mr. Bryan, who has
created more or less disturbance in the
Democratic party for the last sixteen
vears. It finally occurred to Chairman
Mack and Josephus Daniels, of the
Democratic national committee, that
the Nebraskan should be consulted be
fore the selection of Judge Paiker as
temporary chairman was confirmed.
It's recent hlstor.v as to what Mr.
Bryan said about Judge Parkci and the
"suicide" of his beloved party in the
event the "conservative'' judge and one
time Presidential candidate were named,
Nevertheless, the subcommittee on ar
langements met yesterday afternoon,
determined that Mr. Uran s advice
might be consigned to the sciap neap,
and that Judge i'urKer was eminently
fitted to deliver the kenotc speech at
the opening of the convention.
The ontl-Parker stiengtli wai divided
among four candidates, and Inasmurh as
the plurality rather than the majority
rulo was Invoked In the committee room
It was determined that Judge Parker
Then the committeemen, having defied
Bryan, came out of the meeting and be
gan to wonder what the "Peerless
Leader" would do about It. There's little
doubt about Mr Bryan's couise, accord
ing to those who reptoscnt the Uryan
Wilaon contingent neto. The Nebras
kan will end his labois as a. newspaper
reporter at the Chicago convention
about aunaay, will rush into Baltimore,
hall a taxlcab, and scurry to the Bel
vedeie, where he will lead the not acfT
The selection of Judge Parker will bo
rcfened to the full Democratic national
committee Momlav. Mr. Bryan Is ex
pected to take the light thcic, and U
he Is defeated in the full committee,
which is probable, he may appeal to the
in which event all peace plans will go
to pieces, and the Baltimore conven
tion will be almost as Interesting as t!e
struggle now in piogrt-Bs at Chicago,
Time To Start.
"If we must lick Br.van, nli not be
gin It right away?" asked a member of
the national committee after the vote
had been taken, "jf ho Intends to bo
an issue In this thing, the sooner we
,declde the Issue and get down to busi
ness the better it will be This 1b not

The vote on the temporary chali man
ship shows a rather queer alliance
'be lecognlzed Bijan and Wilson men
divided their votes between Congi ess
man Ollle James of Kentucky and Con
gressman Henry of Texas Mr James
Is supporting Champ Claik, while Mr
Henry Is a Wllsonlte.
The Champ Claik men on the sub
committee, however, lined up for Judge
t'anter Roger Sullivan, heading the
large Illinois delegation, ond National
Committeeman Talbott. heading the
Clark delegation from Marlandt were
foi the formei Judge. This alignment
caused the Wilson man to shout that
the Speaker had gone over to the con
servatives, and that the lines between
Claik and Wilson were more taut than
It has been persistently denied among
the Clark campaign manage! s, however,
that they were taking any active light

took the attitude of the Harmon people,

AVIth the exception of the Bryan and
Wilson clan, all of the candidates
seemed to think that New York and
its ninety delegates should have the
right to specify the temporal y chair

selection of Judge Parker aftei Tam
