Baltimore, June 26.?All members of
tho Virginia delegation reported well
late this afternoon when a visit was
made to ihelr headquarters at Hotel
Bennert. None lias suffered so far
from efforts of t!ie h. :it.
Congressman Klood, who Is to make

One word, unless present Indications

thta word Is "deadlockod."
It .: hard'y possible that a quicker
change of sentiment for presidential
candidates was over shown In a nom?
inating convention than has taken
place hero within the last twenty
four hours. Veaterday, when the con

that Bryan's defeat and tho election
of Judge Parker for temporary chair?
man meant the certain nomination of
Champ Clark. At the close of to-day'.i

was a decided change in favor of a
progressive candidate, and by night?

There was a wild rumor current here
this afternoon that s'enator Tlllman
had suffered a stroke of paralysis. A
report*r for a Baltimore paper dashed
Into the lobby of the A'.tamont Hotel,
where the South Carolina delegation is
quartered, and asked for Information.
Being told that those there knew
nothing of It, the reporter went on
to tho convention hall, and then to tho
Belvedere, where Senator Tlllman was
founi In his usual health.
With Senator Tlllman were James

PLYING TRIP PUZZLES.
I.a FollcMe Thought to Have Talked
Baltimore. Md.. June 26..?Conven?
tion matters wore forgotten for tho
moment to-day, when a report be?
came persistent that S'cnaor La Pol
lettc had held a lengthy conference
with William Jennings Bryan after
the hitter's reversal In trie temporary
chairmanship tight In the convention
yesterday. It was said that the Sen?
ator, who slipped Into town from
Washington without heralding his ar?
rival, had discussed In detail the third
party movement and had Invited Mr.
Bryan to cast in his fortunes with
the now progressive movement.
An air of mystery pervaded the
Bryan and Nebraska headquarters to?
day. It was neither denied nor af?
firmed that the conference had been
held, but Mr. Bryan's secretaries and
the officers Of the delegation "really
didn't know" of the, supposed consul?
tation between the two men. That
Senator La Follette was under tho
same roof with Mr. Bryan was ac?
knowledged, and It was declared that
he had expressed his intention of com?
ing from Washington i-.gain to-day. It
was denied, however, that ho had mado
any arrangements to see Mr. Bryan, al?
though the Bryan adherents would not
go so far as to deny that such a con?
ference might take place.
At the Wisconsin delegation's head?
quarters it was acknowledged that the
Senator had been here, and that he
would return. It was explained, how?
ever, that the supposed conferehce
with Mr. Bryan was unlikely, because
Mr. La Kollelto in the past had al?
ways held that differences in the Re?
publican party should be adjusted
within the ranks.
Mr. Bryan was engaged In commit?
tee arrangements and refused to be
