vote for Parker. Also, thty worked
with various caiuilidates, or the man-'
agcra of varlouH candidates, trying to
get them to help She national commit-1
tcemeu from BtaUju where their candi?
dates hail. In ordjor, as they say. that
Bryan shall not only nut dictate the
temporary chain* an. hut shall not be
htlped to a p-j.-jittm wntrt he can dic?
tate tho nominee.
Thoro la no OiMXbl mat Mr. Bryan
will do afl tho dictating within his
power. As a plajj) and fancy dictator,
when be guts U> k chance, he has few
equals and no superloic. There aro
those present in Baltimore, at this mo?
ment, and more, aro coming on every
train, who say Mr. Bryan has no do
slre to sea any Democrat other than
himself President of the L'nitcd mates,
arguing that the moment this conven?
tion names a man, who has an excel?

as the man x ained will have, Mr.
Bryan. Instead of being the. whole or?
chestra, be' nm?? second bass. must
i shift out of Vt\f: limelight, and relin?
quish the cen.rre of th.j stage.
Wherefore, leaving no di-slro to see
Mr. Bryan President, these men intend
to make a ?Uisperate struggle to put
him In what they consider his proper
place, which to that cf a revered,
but former, leader of the Democracy.
They are determined to show Mr.
Bryan he ccntiot oppose & Democrat as

him. that he cannot beat that Dcmo-j

I may be rercenibercd. was defeated

This Is th?i first order of business.
Until Mr. Brvnn la put into what the
Barker men thing is his proper place,
or until he tak'S what ho considers
that place, no other matters of mo?
ment will oc.jatpy the attention of the
j Democrats In Baltimore. Thoy have a

fnce. it at the earliest possli/lo moment,
so they say".

Many a poor fellow whose hairs are to-day countless will in time find them numbered unless he begins at once

the convention what would bo tho
matter with Bryan?from the view?
point of :i lot of'delegates who want
to go home? It is intimated Mi*,
Bryan thinks nothing on earth would
bo the matter with him. especially In
view of tho split la tho Republican
putty. That tptctro ever glooms be?
fore these Democratic leaders, and
they constantly ahivor over It.
Urntlng the Tom-Tom?.
?Managers for tho various candi?
dates Incessantly beat their tom-toms
for their favorites, but, unt'l this
first row la settled, there will be
nothing much more done than tha
various claims, which, It may bo re?
marked in passing, ore reasonably in?
definite. Tho identity of the success?
ful candidate lurgely depends on
Bryan. If Bryan can dominate, sev?
eral of the candidates, notably Har?
mon and Underwood, can turn to their
former duties unharassod by tho cares
of a campaign. If Bryan can be
squelched, a different aspeot comes
over the wholo affair, and the choice
is likely to fall Bomewhoro Bryan may
not favor, but hardly on a man be
holds In high disfavor.
In the figures given Champ Clark
hart the greatest number of votes,
some 400 odd, but more than 600 are
needed to nominate. The Clark sup?
porters aro very active, but not more
so than the Wilson boomers, ami tho
promoters of the other candidates.
Very few delegates are In tho c'ty as
yet, and a good many of tho leaders
I \ '11 not bo In until to-night or Sun?
day night. One leuder who la assidu?
ously courted 's Charles F. Murphy,
who is commonly reputed to hold tho
voles of New York Slate in tho hol?
low of his hand. Tho Mayor Gaynor
boomers shout stridently that Murphy
Is for Gaynor, and that settles It,
pointing out, also, that Gaynor Is
Bryan's friend. However, Mr. Murphy
Is not committing himself so early
In the game. If? has an aco In the
hole, as tho saying is. and he knows
it. Naturally diffident and modest,
.dr. Murphy still maintains about him
a very shrewd eye for the mnln
chance, and ho has that eye peeled day
and night. He lias a very valuable
commodity With him. In the shape of
liioso New York votes, and he will un?
doubtedly cine: go from the suioko of
tho battlo wjth somo very substantial
I advantage for New York, and, Inci?
dentally, for Churles F. Murphy. Tho
men who will settle this nomination
' will be Murphy, and his hand-picked
I New Yorkers, and tho man from the
I South, although thcro will soon ap
I pear on tho sceno various Now Yoik
: I iiimocnits, Including Senator Itoosc
[ velt ami Thomas A. Osborno, who
i will seek to pinco some of their own
j brand of stigma on Murphy and Tam
j many Hall. They suy they havo a
I large quantity of stigma on hand," and
that they uro expert stlgmatir.ors.
One Guess Good As Another.
Pending the attempt to mako Mr.
Bryan a denatured bystandor in llou
of Mr. Bryan's attempt to enptain-gen
cral tho gathering, one tnnn'n gucBB as
to the mi mo of forthcoming nominee
is as good as another's, and no man's
i guess Is any good. Almost anything
I can come out of the hopper, for nil
I sorts of material will be thrown In.
I However, there Is this about It: Th?
, number of Democrats who are stand
I Ing prominently In ? tho foreground
and awaiting tho clarion call to lead
the Democratic hosts to victory has not
been equalled at any convention In
many years. ?Thcre are avowed can?
didates, unavowed candidates, recep?
tive candlietes, deceptlvo oandldates,
"BarkUca" .without number, and a fair
sprinkling of earnest gentlemen on
whom the fate of tho purty ami the
nation depend, and who only need a
chance to provo It.
The. game Is wide open, and tho
players aro so numerous It Ih difficult
to avoid humping Into them on tho
streot corners. Many a man. ngod
more than thirty-five and of good
moral character, secretly cherishes
tho thought that the lightning may
Ktril;o him. and all are ready to lead,
provided they can got any one to fol
low, them. And, at that, some one of
theso ambitious gentlemen, in plact
of some one of the avuwed candidates,
may land. It is well to be polite t?
all Democrats you meet. Almost anj
one may be the candidate, but nol
until that littlo matter relating- t?
William Jennings Bryan has been at
tended to. or until >fr. Bryan has at?
tended to it hlmsolf, until Mr. Bryan
Is shown to be cltner a power, or a
prune all proceedings looking to th?
selection of a standard-bearer may bl
considered at a standstill.
