Governor Montague was seen last, night
In his room at / the Mansion, where;?
ho is still confined by sickness, and. in
answer to a question as to whether' he
desired to say anything concerning the
misunderstanding, of his language aa to
the atUtude of Colonel W. J. Bryan at
the St. Louts Convention, His Excellency
"Yes; I wish my health had enabled
me to make nn earlier correction.
' "I, did not Unow that I was inter?

correspondent of Tlio Times-Dispatch was

going on between several gen Mecen and
and myself, respecting the attitude of
Mr. Bryan towards the convention and
its probable outcome. In ?bis-conversa?

using the word "impudent," or any other
word offensive, to Sir. Bryan., I certainly
entertained no such sentiment, and do
not se? how I could have so spoken? In?

to have so characterized Mr. Bryan.'
An Extraordinary Man;
"In the? conversation I recall distinctly,
stating that in iny opinion Mr. Bryan's
attitude was rather pro motive of discord
than harmony, and he seemed to iiold the.
currency question a* amoral rather than .
an economic one. and, perhaps, tho former
view afforded him difficulty In the modi?
fication of any of his political princi?
"I said nothing about Mr. Bryan's
bolting save lnterrogatmrlally, which was
a frequent question at the convention.
