I The demonstration continued for twen?
ty-one minutes. Then Murphy again

"Alfalfa Bill" could n"t go on. for
a Wilson demonstration got under way

stration had been under way for some
time William Jennings Bryan, accom?
panied by Mrs. Bryan, entered the hall.
He went at or.ee to the section occu?
pied by the Nebraska delegation, and
Mrs. Bryan went to the str,ge. The
demonstration Increased as she ap?

demanding counsel, but he Ignored
them. He gazed at the wild disorder
about him and talked with Samuel W.
Undermcyer, of New York, counsel

Later. Bryan moved to the scats of
the Oregon delegation, and this led
to tho belief that when that State
was called he would endeavor to se?
cure recognition to make a speech. A
big crowd of delegates crowded around
him cheering wildly. The Wilson dem?
