WILSON AND BRYAN
Tho President did not nttond the dinner which was recently
.riven in Washington for Mr. Bryan ; but he sent a letter gracefully
worded, though of no special Importance.
In his Hpeceli to his hosts Mr. Bryan outlined the programme
whieli he (I. sires to have the Democrats follow. He runs counter to
the President in many ways. For instance, Mr. Bryan is for national
nrliihitim. nn.l unnl.l enmmit Ins nartv to it. The President, on tin
" - w
nilmr hmirl is n atnte'v riirhts mini and a local ontioilist. Mr. Bryfl!
is for the enfranchisement of women h.v Federal action. The Presi
dent wants the entire subject left to the action of individual States
Mr. Bryan opposes the plan for a closer Federal regulation of th
transportation interests. The President is moving upon Congress fo
an extension of the powers of the Interstate Commerce Conmiaaioi
Mr. Bryan demands a change in the electoral system and winds th
Constitution made more easy of amendment. The President 1ms e
pressed no opinion on these subjects, though he is regarded as in
favorahlc to them.
It is hy no means unlikely that Bryan and Wilson may lim
themselves in inevitable collision of opinion before two years an
out. The subjects which Bryan would impose as cardinal doctrine
upon the Democratic party arc subjects with which the President lin-
scant svmnatbv or to which he is frankly opposed. His well-knov
facility for changing his mind may avail him in the case of a clnsl
with his former Secretary of State; hut the present indications an
for a sharply defined line of division.
TRAINMEN IN WRONG
Threatening a strike once more because various railroad com

treiiinmen "s brotherhoods are now defying law as well as public
There is no longer a controversy between employers and em
ployes. It is an issue which has been taken over hy the government
of the Tinted States to he settled in accordance with the facts. When
the brotherhoods submitted their case to congress they in effect
agreed that thenceforward they would abide hy legal processes and
that strike orders should be held in abeyance pending a full date rati
nation of the controversy.
The railroads m;iy be wise or unwise in their present policy, hut
'it is no more possible or desirable to deny them their day in court un
der a law forced upon them than it would he to deny to workingmen
their day in court if an act prescribing compulsory arbitration were
forced upon them.
Labor organizations refusing to abide by a law enacted in their
own interest, simply because it is not despotically enforced, reveal
a spirit which will delight all their enemies. Their friends will still
have faith that the intelligent rank and file of trainmen will see the
folly of the present menace and array themselves against it. New

Washington, December 26 Revised
figures on returns of the last election
chowed definitely that neither Demo
crats nor Republicans will have a ma
jority of the next House, necessary to
elect a speaker, and that a handful of
Independents will determine which
uidc will control the organization.
Conceding seats to candidates in
possession of certificates of election
because they are certain to participate
iu the organization of the House, the
personal now stands: Republicans.
214; Drinocrats. 213; Independent. 2;
Progressives, 2; Prohibitionists, I; So-
ialists, 1 ; contested, 2. A majority
Is 218, hence should either Democrats
or Republicans win both of the con
tests, they still would be short a majority.
All of the Independents are main
taining strict silence regarding their
attitude on the Speakership, but the
Democratic and Republican leaders
ore agreed on how most of them will
vote, provided caucuses are held and
solidarity maintained by the two old
Kelly, of Pennsylvania, a Progres
sive, who formerly was a Democratic
member of the House is .listed as a
lemocratlc probability. So are Ran
dall, Prohibitionist, of California, who
oted for Speaker Clark the last time,
nd London, of New York, Socialist,
sits on the Democratic side now and
has been shown favors by Democratic
leaders. 8hall, of Minnesota, Pro
gressive, the leaders agree, probably
would lean toward a Republican can
didate If convinced of his Progresslv
ism. He campaigned for the National
Republican ticket during the last cam
paign, although opposed by the regu
.nr organization in his State. Fuller,
Independent, of Massachusetts, also is
classed as a Republican hope.
Martin, of Louisiana. Progressive,
eemes from a large sugar district In
Louisiana and has Indicated that as
surance of protection of the sugar in
terests will be his first concern in vot
ing on the organization. Formerly he
was a Democrat, however, and Demo
cratic leaders hope to get his vote. At
he same time Republicans think he
( an be convinced that their party is
I lie only one which has his sugar In
terests at heart.
Contests in which certificates hav-'
not been Issued are on In the Thlrty
tiecond Pennsylvania district, where
Representative Barchfluld, Republican,
is contesting the election of Guy E.
Campbell, Democrat, who, on the face
of the returns, won by 46 votes, and
the Third New Jersey district, where
Representative Scully, Democrat, is
has been organized.
Should the Republicans seat both of
their contestants and hold their mem
bership solid for their candidates, they
would need only two Independent
votes to win the Speakership, while
the Democrats would need five. On
the other hand, should the 'Democrats
win tho contested seats, the Repub
lican would need four Independent
votes, while the Democrats could win
with three votes.
Ileum, rats Solid For Clark
There is no question about the Dem
ocrats voting solidly for Speaker
i lark, but there are some signs of
trlfe among the Republicans. Repre
sentative Gardner already has an
nounced his opposition to Representa
tive Mann.' Every effort will be made
by leaders of Republicans assured on
conference before voting starts.
Representative Gardner, who an
nounced yesterday that he would seek
to obtain a Republican conference to
formulate policies for the future ar'iv
ities of the party in the House; did not
visit the Capitol today. Mr. Mann
was there, however, and tonight he ex
pressed the view that the Republican.
would stand united at least In the or
ganization of tho House.
1 have nothing to say about th
Speakership matter or the Gardner
episode," he said, "except that I will
hope that the President in some way
through God's Providence may aid in
bringing about a peace which shall be
lasting and permanent and provide for
disarmament and the removal of the
heavy burden of military and naval
preparedness, and If I can in the
slightest degree assist to bring "about
uch a result I would rather do that
than to be Speaker.
"The charge of Mr. Gardner that I
am for Prussia and Prussianism is. of
course, utterly untrue. I am for Amer
ica first, last and all the time, and do
cot take aides in the European war.
In Mr. Gardner's opinion, that is my
Representative Lenroot, of Wiscon
sin, whom Gardner will support for
Speaker, has no comment to make on
