belief- that some other man would add
greater strength to the ticket he (Sulzer)
would willingly withdraw.*
Mr.. Bryan told Mr. Sulzer he would not'
presume to dictate or even advise as to
the Vice Presidential nominee; that the
convention was competent to make a fit
selection without a suggestion from him.
He told Mr. Sulzer to go ahead with his
canvass and that his only hope was that
the best man would win.

developments of the day were made

day— and practically the only ones— were

the sentiment of the gentlemen in Lin

as Mr. Bryan himself four years ago,
Congressman Sulzer and ex-Congressman
J. Hamilton Lewis repeated the state
ments made last night that there must be
an emphatic, explicit declaration for free
coinage at 16 to 1. The gentlemen around
them echoed the sentiment, and while all
were careful not to assume to quote Mr.
Bryan, It Was easy to see that they
claimed him as one of the disciples of the
Colonel Bryan from early mornlns un
til late at night was the central, pole
around which gravitated the Democratic
hosts. His city home was tha Mecca of

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 30.— Charles
A. Towne. the nominee for Vice President
by ihe Populist Convention at Sioux Falls
and candidate for the same honor at the
hands of the Democratic Convention, ar
rived in the city to-day and at once opened
his headquarters in the Coates House. He
gave his first attention to the arrange
ments for the convention of the Silver Re*
publicans, whi;h Is to be held In the auJi
toriwm in this city on July 4.'and later re
ceived a number of politicians.
"I really think that I can bring greater
strength to the ticket than any other man
who has been mentioned up to the present
time." he said in an Interview, "and in the
circumstances I consider myself the logi
cal candidate. It must be remembered
that back of me Is the. full strength of
the Populist and Silver Republican par
tie?, and while it Is true that a consider
able part of this will ro Uemocratic any
how. I am able to carry Up full vote, anil
this I do not think at the present time any
other man can do. The Sliver tienubli
cans will ask that th*r<» be In the Demo
cratic platform a specillc declaration for
silver at 16 to 1. An out-and-out reaf
tlrmation of the. Chicago platform wilt
satisfy u-<, but we would prefer the real
thinv ami no beatlnjj about the bush." .
Who w;ih to present his namn to tho
Democratic convention for Vice President
Mr. Towne could not nay. The matter
was to be nettled, he said, at a conference
of tho Silver Republicans* to be held on
Monday, and all arrangements regarding
his candidacy will be settled at that time.
As to whether his name would go before
the convention provided his candidacy
were not Indorsed by the Democrats at
the conference v to be held between the
Democrats nnd Populists and Silver Re
publicans prior to the convention Mr.
Towne would not say. but he intimated
that his name would be placed in nom
ination no matter whether the Democratic
committee accepted him or not.
"If tho Demflcnatic party Bays that It
does not want me," said he. "I rather
think that my chances of securing a nom
ination from them are somewhat slim. I
might not even get the nomination, even
though the committee said that It did
want me. The voice of a committee is
not always the voice of the convention
and it will be ample time for me to settle
that matter when I know what I am
called to pasH upon. At the present time
I would say, however, that my name will
go before the convention."

ders and rushing of fV»fct day and

About the hotels, however, there is al

men who belong to the "new Democracy"

making considerable noise. ¦
Divided on Silver Issue.
Delegates are dropping in from different
sections and ths meeting of the sub-com
rnitteo on convention arrangements at
tracted quite a knot, of men about the
national committee headquarters.
As on Friday, the most interesting topic,
and that which gives the Democrats here
the most concern, is promised contest
over the 16-to-l phir.k of the platform.
The utterances of men like National
Chairman Jones. William J. Stone and
ether Western and Southern leaders, to
gether with the action of Western ana
Southern Democratic State conventions
in their platforms, would seem to indicate
that a reattirmution of the Chicago plat
form is all thrit would be necessary. Such
action under ordinary circumstances
would be apt to be accepted as the prob
able action of the national convention,
but the reports from Lincoln indicate that
16 to 1 must be specifically declared if the
views of Mr. Bryan are to be followed
There are so many delegates who desire
to carry out the wishes of the coming
nominee that tfc» clash between them and
those holding different views is likely to
be spirited and the result somewhat
Chairman Jones said that the declaia
tion on silver should not vary the breadth
of a hair from that marked in the Cbi-
CCgo platform, and he thinks a reaffirma
tlon is sufficient. The breadth of a hair,
however, . is Ktill too wide for some and
they favor splitting the hair, especially
if the Chicago platform Is to be the test.
The extreme silver men insist that a "re
afllrmation would be a concession." Gold
men and others who have returned to the
party s:iy yuch a concession Is sufficient.
So the hair that Senator Jones spoke
about seems to be wide enough to cause a
lively contest when the platform is con
There are some other features of the
platform that may not be agreed upon at
once— expansion, the present Chinese sit
uation and the Coeur d'Alene riots. But
the' differences over these can be readily
adjusted, as they are either foreordained
now or susceptible of manipulation by the
Candidates Arrive Early.
Three Vice Presidential possibilities
came in to-day — the chairman of the Sil
ver Republican committee, who was
named by the Populists for Vice Presi
dent, Charles A. Towne: Benjamin F.
Bhiveley. ex-member of Congress from In
diana, and William Sulzer, member of
Congress from New York. The latter ar
rived late in the evening, after spending
a day or two at Lincoln, where he had
been conferring with Mr. Bryan. Mr.
Towne modestly outlined the reasons
which prompted him to bo a candidate.
Mr. Shiveley said he was not a candidate,
while his friends declared that he would
be presented by Indiana. No one" is yet
ready to hazard a prediction that any one
of these men will be selected.
The arrival of these candidates created
talk and speculation, but neither they nor
any one else can now even guess how
many votes any one of them will receive.
There has been a renewal of the talk
about nominating Mr. Bryan on the
Fourth of July, and a night Fession\has
been suggested in order to accomplish
this. It is even paid that he may be nom
inated before the platform is adopted, but
many are doing what they can to dis
courage the proceeding, declaring that it
will be crowding sentiment too far to de
part from the regular and orderly proced
ure of the convention.
Thfre is still uncertainty a? to whether
Mr. Bryan will come to Kansas City after
the convention makes the nomination.
No one now here is authorized to speak
for him. It has been said that the con
vention can conclude all its business in
two days, and the third day be devoted to
giving a reception to Mr. Bryan and
listening to a speech from him. This
would be an attractive programme, es
pecialiv for Kansas City, as the appear
ance of Mr. Bryan would doubtless attract
as many people as the opening day.
Although the National Committee has
taken no action, there has -been a great
deal of correspondence and consultation
among leader? everywhere on the*subject
at presiding f^Ticers, and the understand
ing is that Mayor Roue of Milwaukee will

CLARK-DALY FEUD v.^ ,
AGAIN TO THE FORE
KANSAS CITY, June 20.-So far us the
National Democratic Committee is in
formed, the convention -will have four con
tests to decide.' Only one. of yiese- con
tests involves a State delegation.' Two of
the others refer to the representation of
Territories and the other to the District of
Columbia. ' The State contest is over the
representation from Montana and the two
Territories involved are Oklahoma arm In-"
dlan Territory. ' . ; . ¦" .¦ '
The greatest interest centers in the Mon
tana contention, because of the Clark-
Daly feud, which found such bitter ex
pression during the last session of Con
gress in the fight over the scat of Horn
\V. A. Clark in the Senate.
The advance representatives of both fac
tions are already here, and they are quite
busy in presenting their respective claims'
to recognition. Senator Clark will head
the delegation bearing his name, -while
the Daly delegation is led by Hon. Martin
J. Maginnls, who received Governor
Smith's appointment for Senator, as Mr.
Clerk received the . appointment by the
Lieutenant Governor In the absence of the
Governor. Others of the Clark delegation
are:, former Governor Hauser, J. M. Holt
Frank Higgins and H. E. Frank. 'Mr Ma-
Kinnis' associates are: Robert B. Smith
W. M. Cockrlll. Paul Fuse, Dr. J. M. Fox
and ex-Congressman Walter S. Hartman.
In this contest both the Clark people and
the Daly people claim regularity. They
