Influence of Ryan
SYRACUSE, X. V.. Oct. S.—William

New York «tty. was nominated for

the seventh time he had been a candi
date for this nomination.

the p*rty on the fourth ballot after

rawa Martin H. Glynn wej
nominated for lieutenant governor.
The convention then adjourned until
today.
Alton B. Parker took the opportun
ity afforded by his speech today as
permanent chairman of the demo
ratic state convention to answer
Ids critics at the Baltimore con
vention. It was the first political
tpeech the former presidential candi
date had made since he was the storm
center of the battle waged by William
J. Bryan against his selection as tem
porary chairman of the democratic na
tional convention.
Tn defending himself he also defended
• c New York state delegation, which
Q was the object of* Bryan's attacks.
Parker said the action of the New
York delegates at Baltimore was die-
tated by the desire to promote harmony.
"You may ask me," he said, "why
I the New York delegation with f-0
men. at least 23 of -whom were capable
' entering: upon that platform, failed
liscuss the attack which was made
Indirectly and directly upon the dele
srates and upon myself—why did they
keep silent? Because we believed it
I better that we should suffer a
indignity than by entering into
iispute with the gentleman epon the
•tform (Bryan), which would divide
-.1 convention in two; and we held
r peace.
"We held our peace for the good of
democracy; we held our peace, believ
ing that either Clark or Wilson would

Yew York state should take no part in
it contest which would prevent the
pie of the United States from unit

ihem should be the nominee of the
party."

the opposition to his candidacy for the
nanent chairmanship expressed by

Executives Urge Conservation
Schemes at Congress of
Irrigationists
SALT LAKE CITY. Utah, Oct. 2.—
Governors of western states and for
eign delegates were the speakers at the
afternoon session of the twentieth In
ternational Irrigation congress. Be
tween sessions the visitors listened to
a pipe organ recital in the tabernacle.
Two more cities entered the already
crowded field as bidders lor next
year's meeting of the congress. Invi
tations to meet at Mobile, Ala., and
Indianapolis, liid., were presented to
the congress by business and commer
cial organizations of those cities. The
next convention city will be selected
tomorrow, at which time also officers
will be elected.
Governor William Spry of Utah was \
the first speaker at the afternoon ses
sion. "1 strongly favor the govern
ment increasing its bonded indebted
ness as fax as reclamation is con
cerned," he said. "Where possible the
government should conserve the flood
watets at the heads of the rivers for
distribution below. The people of
Utah ejre for any project that will ena
ble men of the crowded east to come
out here and obtain homes. We are
for the reclamation service, irrigation,
conservation of floods and anything
that will further the production of the
soil."
Governor Tasker L. Oddie of Nevada
reviewed the progress of irrigation in
Nevada and described the laws passed
to prevent abuses by land speculators.
Former Governor Arthur L. Thomas of
Utah, who issued the call for the first
congress, said that organization of
the body opened the way for all the
great Irrigation legislation that has
followed since.

energy of youth with them in the van
guard of civilization and both uniting
to show to the other nations of the
earth that the arts of peace. are
greater than the arts of war."
