WILLIAMS DENOUNCES
HILL'S CANDIDACY
Favors Towne for Vies
Presidency.
Massachusetts Democratic • Leader
KANSAS CITY, June 29.— George Fred
Williams, member of the national com
mittee and delegate to the Democratic
convention from Massachusetts, arrived In
Kansas City to-day. Mr. Williams has
been among those mentioned as a pos
sible Vice? Presidential candidate, but he
says that having pronounced^views and
not being afraid to express them makes it
impossible for him to be considered in this
connection. He is by far the most breezy
and unreserved man that has yet appeared
here and he talks on every phase of the
situation, without, however, committing
himself or the New England delegates
upon the Vice Presidential situation, save
to say that he believes that Towne would
be the strongest man that could be named
with Bryan. Mr. Williams talked about
ex-Senator Hill in a manner to indicate
his entire disapprobation of that gentle
man.
"What is Hill coming for?" he asked
and answered the query: "For the sole and
avowed purpose of trying to secure a
modification of the platform of 1896. He
ought to be here in sackcloth and ashes,
instead of trying to tell us what we should
do. New York as well as Hill remained
silent in the Chicago convention after the
majority had declared Its will on'the plat
form. Now he comes here to say, 'I'll
help you if you do as I say.v if we win
he will say. 'I helped you.' If we lose he
will say. 'I told you what to do and you
see the result." I don't like that attitude.
Croker and Murphy come here In a dif
ferent spirit, willing to take the platform
that is made and abide by the result. It
is likely that Hill will not be so prominent
when Croker and Murphy take charge."
Mr. Williams Is one of the men who Is
determined to work for a specific declara
tion for the ratio of 16 to 1 in the platform.
He says that there must be no deviation
from that declaration. ,
"If we were right in JS96 why should
we change 'now? To simply reaffirm the
Chicago platform Is. not sufficient. Nor
would it be enough to declare. for bi
metallism. Every man '- could declare
himself a bimetallist and place a ratio at
22 to 1 or 50 to 1, to suit his own ideas, all
of which would mean nothing., I do not
believe this convention will be satisfied
with anything but a specific 16-to-l decla
ration. The morale of the party de
mands it and If we were right when we
polled six and a a half millions of votes
we will be right In making the declaration
anew. Mr. Bryan could not honorably
stand upon a platform that even by im
plication abandoned' the great Issue on
which the former campaign was fought.
We cannot write ourselves down as hay-
ing been jackasses or knaves In 1596 by
leaving out the ratio declaration."
Along this vein did Mr. Williams discuss
the issue and presently he turned his at
tention to Grover Cleveland, who he de
nounced for throwing the weight of the
Democratic administration against the
party four years ago. - ¦
"To make concessions now." he said,
"would mean that Cleveland was right
and the greatest American In the Demo
cratic party. Ido not believe this con
vention will do it and when the delegates
arrive it will be found that the movement
is not popular; The men behind this
movement are thope who want to place
the Democratic party and Mr. Bryan in a
vacillating position like the present admin
istration. They want to place Bryan on
a par with McKinley and I say the Kan
sas City convention will not do anything
of that kind."
TO MAKE IMPERIALISM
THE PREDOMINANT ISSUE
Silver Eepuhlican Leader Says Free
Coinage Will Be Placed in the
Background.
KANSAS CITY, June 29.— General E. S.
Corser, secretary of the Silver Repub
lican National Committee, gave out a
statement to-day in regard to the prob
able action of the Sliver Republican Con
vention, and. Incidentally, a prophecy of
the lines on which the coming campafgn
will be fought. He believes that the is
sue of free silver at 16 to 1 will be and
ought to be subordinated to the more
pressing question of imperialism or anti
imperialism. .
"There Is not the slightest danger,"
General Corser said, "that the free sil
ver issue will be discredited. We stand
on that just a? we did in ISP6. But all
Intelligent blmetallists are agreed that It
cannot be made the great absorbing ques
tion In this campaign because, the legisla
tion of the last Congress has placed it
beyond immediate settlement. On the
other hand the question of a republic or
an empire Is one which is to be settled
at oneo — now and" forever. Four/ more
years of McKinley and ' Hanna .would
place that, too, beyond the power/of th&
Democratic party to settle. The silver
question is a great question, but is one
which the future can settle. If In the
next four years the gold standard proves
a good thing we don't want a change,
but If. as we believe, it will prove a bad
thing It will prove its own, undoing an*
will demand a change.
"Mr. Bryan's declaration that there are
three great issues in this campaign— free
silver, imperialism and the trusts — is em
inently correct, but of necessity one of
the three will take pre-emlnance and that
will be imperialism."
Charles A. Towne will arrive to-morrow
and In conference with General Corser
and members of the committee will com
plete the preliminary arrangements for
the Silver Republican Convention.
Boomers of. Sulzer and Towne Are
Making the Most Noise
Thus Far.
KANSAS CITY, June 29.— The "running
mate" problem Is as conspicuous as It was
at Philadelphia, and at this distance the
guessing is fully as indiscriminate. There
are plenty of candidates, men who want
the honor, and one does not hear so much
about declinations as- there was among
the Republicans. The aggressive men are
Sulzer of New York and Towne of Minne
sota, while the names In the background
form: a basis of speculation, there being
such merr as Benjamin F. Shiveley of In
diana- and Judge a." B. Parker of New
York, who- are considered as available.
The belief Is general that some kind of an
indorsement from Colonel Bryan would be
sufficient to name the candidate, but it
¦will be a bold man who will dare to pro
claim that any one particular candidate
Is the*. choice of the man already deter
mined upon for President.
There are not enough delegates here to
give even an intimation of what is likely
to occur. Dispatches received here from
different sections Indicate that the dele
gates who have been sounded on the ques
tion have not yet made up their minds, or
they do not care to express a preference
for any candidate. There Is an impression
that the good politics of the 'situation
would mean the selection of a man from
New York, and If a satisfactory candidate
cannot be found there the next best thing
to do would be to go to Indiana.
Western Democrats would be glad to
have an Eastern man named who would
add strength to the ticket in that section.
Both New York and Indiana are consid
ered battlegrounds. Both were carried for
McKinley in IS9G, but the confidence of the
Democrats in their ability to reverse the
vote In Indiana and the strong hopes they
entertain of carrying New York are inter
esting features of the situation here. It
is because of this condition that^he Dem
ocrats talk of a Vice Presidential candi
date from one of those States. There will
have to be more delegates In the city and
something like an alignment of forces for
and against certain candidates for Vice
President before even guesses can be made
with any degree of Intelligence.
If Mr. Sulzer of New York be not nom
inated for Vice President it will not be on
account of any lack of booming on the
part of his friends who are here. The
managers, with B. D. (TTJonnell at their
head, are losing no opportunity of mak
ing known the fact that Mr. Sulzer Is not
only in the race, but that he will win if he
can. Badges beating the wqrdp "Bryan
and Sulzer and Victory." with portraits of
the men.' are being distributed to all who
¦will wear them, while another method of
campaign has been adopted in spreading
broadcast a small handbill. This docu-
PLENTY OF CANDIDATES
FOR VICE PRESIDENCY
ment contains only a few words, and
quotes a speech made by Champ Clark In
the House of Representatives, in which
the Missouri man said:
"In this distinguished presence I nom
inate for Vice President William Sulzer
of New York, who is faithful to the cause
at all times, in all places and under all
circumstances. I honor Mr. Sulzer for; his
courage, his honesty and his fidelity ex
hibited amid environments which would
discourage, dishearten and appall a more
timid man."
vAn interview with Mr. Sulzer, tele
graphed from Lincoln and published here,
quotes him as saying that he stood with
Bryan on the Boer question and every
other question. He also declared that the
New York delegation would do whatever
was best for the party, and if the con
vention wanted 16 to i the delegation
would not oppose it.
FAVORS AN EVASION
OF THE SILVER ISSUE
Chairman Jones Declares a Specific
Sixteen-to-One Declaration
Unnecessary.
KANSAS CITY. June 2J».— Senator Jones
of Arkansas, chairman of the Democratic
National Committee, arrived in Kansas
City to-night and in a brief interview
stated that he did not think a specific 16
to 1 silver declaration was necessary if
the Chicago platform were adopted. He
was asked the direct question If a specific
declaration would be made If the Chicago
platform were adopted, and' replied with
a question:
"Would not the reafflrmation of the Chi
cago platform be a declaration in favor
of 16 to 1? I think It would be."
He then added, with deliberation: "I
don't think anything will be adopted by
the eonvetnlon that will be a deviation bo
much as the breadth of a hair from the
principles laid down in the Chicago plat
form. A reaffirmation of that platform
will mean the adoption of every word and
letter In It, including tne 16 to 1 declara
tion. I don't believe that a reiteration of
that plank, or any other. Is necessary to
make plain our position. If it is necessary
to restate the 16 to 1 provision it would be
equally necessary to restate that relating
to the Supreme Court, government by in
junction, the revenue tax and every other
provision, for if we should single gut one
provision only and specify it, there might
be a claim that we did not mean to indorse
the other features in reaffirming the Chi
cago platform. If the convention readopts
the Chicago platform it will mean that
every syllable is adopted. I don't kno\^
just what form the indorsement will take,
but It will mean everything It says."
Just at this point some one broke in with
a question as to whether or not persons
who did not support the Chicago platform
could support the Kansas City platform
if It should reaffirm the former.
"I'm not- the keeper of the consciences
of such people and cannot tell what they
can do," replied Senator Jones. \
The Senator said he did not know
whether Mr. Bryan was coming to Kan
sas City, and he did not expect to go to
Lincoln for the present. When asked con
cerning the Vice Presidency, he replied
that he did not know -who would be nom
inated and had no intimation as' to the
favorite. The matter of temporary- chair
man would, he said, be considered at the
meeting of the committee. To a question
concerning the chairmanship of the na
tional committee he returned an answer
indicating that he did not wish to discuss
the matter.
Ex-Senator Fred T. Dubols of Idaho and
ex-Representative Charles S. Hartman of
Montana arrived to-night and joined the
silver Republican and Populist boomers,
who are urging C. A. Towne for Vice
President.
Officers of the Convention.
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. June 29.—The.se
lection of presiding officers of the "con
vention has not yet been determined. The
National Committee will prepare the
name of the temporary chairman, who
will no doubt be indorsed by the conven
tion. So far as possible the committee
will also arrange for the permanent chair
man,-and available' men for that place
will be canvassed at the first meeting.
Mayor D. A. Rose of Milwaukee and
Charles S. ¦ Thomas of Colorado have been
suggested for temporary chairman, and it
is expected that one of them will be
chosen.' Representative James D. Rich
ardson of Tennessee has been suggested
for permanent chairman. Mr. Richard
son acted as permanent chairman during
a portion of the Chicago convention, when
Senator White's voice failed.
White's Departure Belayed.

SULZER AND LEWIS
CALL UPON BRYAN
Vie With One Another in Endeavor-

Support.
Special Dispatch to' The Call.
LINCOLN, Nebr., June 20.— Nebraska
Democrats close to Bryan place no cre
dence In press telegrams sent from this
city last night to the effect- that Bryan
had announced finally he would not go to
Kansas City. Chairman Hall of the Dem
ocratic State Committee said to-night:
"It Is within my personal knowledge
that Mr. Bryan made no such assertion.
He will certainly not go there before the
convention, and It Is -even his desire to
stay within the quiet wf his home; but I
have every reason to believe if the con
vention, after he be nominated, send word
that hi» presence is desirable In Kan«aj
City he will bow to Its will."
Chairman Hall speaks the sentiments of
other Democratic leaders In the Mate.
Among these are several who have gone
about privately arranging for a special
train to be engaged here at short notice
to carry the Democratic leader to Kansas
City if he be expected to address the con
vention.
The feature of Bryan's afternoon was a
visit from a delegation representing 'the
Bryan Traveling Men's Club of Lincoln.
The delegation presented him with a fe
dora hat and a silk umbrella and assured
him the club would, be represented in the
parade at Kansas City by k 2ZO uniformed
members.
Two accredited aspirants for the Demo
cratic Vice Presidential nomination—Con
gressman Wiliam Sulzer of New York and
ex-Congressman J. Hamilton Lewis of
Washington— vied with each other to-day
at winning the favor of William J. Bryan,
at whose home both were guests. Sulzer
arrived early this morning In company
with Editor Fiegel of the Tammany Times.
An hour's conference followed at Bryan's
home, but at its conclusion neither gentle
man would discuss what passed between
them. The Washington man came to the
ctty later. He had no trouble In obtaining
a conference with the Democratic leader,
but its result is surrounded by as much
doubt as that of Sulzer. Bryan was
painfully silent when approached on the
subject, but friends rieclare neither the
New Yorker nor the Washington gentle
man secured any semblance of a pledge
of the Nebraskan's aid at Kansas City
Bryan, they say, has absolutely kept aloof
from the Vice Pfesidency question and
will maintain his determination.
This afternoon Bryan took his guest 3.
accompanied by a squad of Kastern news
paper correspondents who came during
the day, out to his farm. Here he display
ed recently harvested wheat, growing
corn, oats and garden truck and chickens
Richard Croker and ex-Senator Edward
Murphy are expected to arrive to-morrow
to confer with Bryan, although no definite
announcement has come from the New
Yorkers that they are actually comln? to
Lincoln. Bryan himself, knows nothing
further on the subject than what has been
stated by press dispatches.
An Incident of Sulzer's trip from. New
York was the painful smashing: of his
right thumb, the result of a sudden de
scent of a car window. He had the thumb
dressed immediately after arriving here.
the surgeon stating, however, that fur
ther"* delaying of medical attention tnlg^.t
have caused tetanus. Sulzer will continue
his Journey to Kansas City to-morrow,
but the injured thumb will compel him to
taboo handshaking in furthering bis
boom.
Plans of the Silver Republicans.
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. June 25.— The pro
gramme of the Silver Republicans will be
mapped out to-morrow, when Chairman
Towne of their National Committee ar
rix-es. It is expected that Senator Teller
of Colorado will be temporary chairman,
and that L. W. Brown of Onto will be
permanent chairman. Bryan will be nom
inated for President on the day he l»
nominated by the Democrats. The Silver
Republicans would like to name Towne
for Vice President, but if tho Democratic
convention should choose another candi
date it is quite possible that the choice
win be ratified by the Silver Republicans.
Montana's Rival Delegations.
HELENA. Mont.. June 29.— The anti-
Clark delegates to Kansas City left for

will* leave Butte to-morrow on a special
train provided by Clark.- Both delega
tions feel confident they will be seated.
The band played the "Star Spanglea
Banner" as the train moved out. and the
throng cheered the delegate 3. Supervisor
Braunhart gazed with admiration akin
to fondness at the receding figure of tn«»
Mayor. The Iroquois braves betrayed no
snuawlike attributes in the leave taking.
No tears were shed at the sight of
Phelan"s departure. Gavin McN'ab. the
guiding genius of the party In this State,
did not attend the function.

The braves of the Irbquois Democratic
Clob escorted the California delegation
en route to Kansas City to the Oakland
mole yesterday morning. As the train
pulled out the club was presented with an
American flag. Last night the club held
its regular weekly meeting and discussed
much important business. President Wil
liam McMann presided. The essays which
*t he member? had prepared on the "Prin
ciples of . the Democratic Party" were
handed in to the secretary and will be
turned over for judgment to the following
literary committee: Charles nildea. Rob
ert Day. W. M. Cuhpry. W. M. Cannon.
A. Jacobs. A. D. Lemon and C. W. Moores.
The results will probably be announced
next week.
A lively debate ensued when Chairman
W. H. Alford of the joint State and Cuun
ty Committee af=ke-d the ratification com
mittee of the Iroquois to postpone their
meeting, set for Wednesday, July 6. to
Saturday. July 7. He said ji- was absurd
to hold a ratification meeting on the night
of tbe first day of the convention, as the
candidates would not probably he nom
inated till the second session. After much
argument the club decided to hold two
meetings — one on Wednesday on their own
account and another on Saturday in con
junction with the Stat" and County Dem
ocratf. Metropolitan Temple is selected as
the place where both meetings will be
held.
A vote of thanks was tendered to W.
M. Cubery. who distributed copies of the
iJeolaration of Independence to the dele
pates. Judge W. M. Gibson of Stockton
addressed the meeting, as did Ralph Hoyt
cf Los Angeles. Both speakers were well
received and delivered eulogies on the
boy orator.

TALK OF NOMINATING
BRYAN ON THE FOURTH
Propositlon That Does Not Meet With
Favor by Many, of the
Delegates.
. ICANSAS CITT. M0.. -June 29.— A story
has .been in circulation indicating that
plans have already been perfected to
rjominate Bryan on July 4. even Jf the
other business of the convention, such
as permanent organization, report of the
committee on credentials and even the
platform should have to be postponed.
I"he few delegates now here do not take
«indly to the suKjeestlon and say that the
ronvention should proceed in the 'usua!
srder. While there is a sentiment in mak-
IROQUOIS PREPARES
TO INDORSE BRYAN
ing the nomination on the Fourth it is
thought -it would be. carrying sentiment
too far. There are a number of contests
which must be decided and it will not be
poFFible to settle on the platform without
some consideration. It would be decidedly
unusunl to make the Presidential nomina
tion the day the convention met and It
might result in scattering the delegates
and crowds, who would not care to remain
after the Presidential nomination was
made.
' The most elaborate decorations for State
headquarters that have been seen at any
convention are being fitted t:p for . Kan
sas. The Stote has secured a very large
building on Baltimore avenue and the
whole floor is being gorgeously decorated
with bunting, flags, etc. There are many
pictures of Colonel Bryan, hut one in par
ticular attracted the eye of every citizen,
being twelve feet square,. with the Amer
ican flag in an upper corner, a tweniy
dollar. gold piece on the lower corner and
a silver dollar opposite. The Kansas men
intend to keep open house all the time.

KANSAS CITY. June 29.— The Rev. Sam
Jones of Atlanta i<= at the Coates House
to-day. This is what he said on the politi
cal situation: ' .
"When Mark Hanna opens his 'barT
and hollers 'McKinley and Prosperity' the
Democrats will be no more in it than a
pig pen in a Kansas cyclone. The differ

see, will run around and around Jones in
the race." '»<
The California delegation is expected
on Sunday and will be among the first
here. A few scattering delegates will be
in to-morrow, but no full delegations until
Surfday. E. E. Crandall of Los Angeles
is here to prepare for the Californians'
coming. He has engaged a large club
room at the Coates, where the Calif or
gans are to put up, and promises that in
this club room there will be two punch
bowls s of wine that will not be allowed
to run dry during the convention. \
