Friends Insist That "Peer

Secretary of State
Special Dispatch to Tbe Call
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. —Smarting
under the criticism that he already is
■r.t work trying to dominate President
elect Wilson and that he has accepted
the post of secretary of state before It
has been offered to him, William J.
Bryan tonight wired to friends in this
city that he has no intention of ac
cepting the invitation of Governor Wil
son to make a trip to Bermuda.
"T have had no conference with Gov
ernor Wilson."' Bryan wired, "have

Governor Wilson has admitted in his
retreat in Bermuda that he had in
vited Bryan to visit him there. Bryan.
however, is understood to feer that
such a visit would be misconstrued
and that the democrats of the coun
try would receive the Impression that
he was seeking the position of pre
mier of the Wilson administration.
FRIENDS BELIEVE t O.HMONER
Bryan's statement that he never has
discussed any office with Governor
Wilson is aoepted by all his friends
as the literal truth. No one be
lieves that he actually has discussed
the suggestion that he enter the eabi
;i.-t with President elect Wilson. It is
known, however, that Governor Wilson
has discussed the matter at length
with some of Bryan's closest friends
and lias assured them that the com
moner will h»» offered the position of
head of the state department.
Robert T,. Henry, chairman of the
rules committee of the house, goes so
far as to say that he believes Bryan.

There lias been no suggestion by
Governor Wilson to any of Bryan's
friends that the Commoner might iind

DIPLOMA TIC POST \OT CONSIDERED
In the first pla. c. it is said, Governor
Wilson would not think of offering a
diplomatic post to Bryan, because gen
erally It might be understood as an
effort to sidetrack him from political
affairs in the United States for the
next four years.
In the second place. Bryan is re
garded as too shrewd a politician to
consider any suggestion that might
lead him into foreign fields. His
friends say that he prefers to continue
as ambassador of the democratic party
at the court of Woodrow W r ilson.
"Tf there were no other reasons for
B'-yan to decline the post in London,"
said one of his close friends tonight,
"his well known dislike for knee
breeches would be sufficient to end the
BRYAN LIKES LIMELIGHT
While most politicians believe that
Bryan would be in a stronger posi
tion, politically, if he remained on the
side lines, there are others who main
tain that he recognises the fact that
as premier of the Wilson administra
tion ho could follow in the footsteps
of James G. Blame, whose attractive
qualities were kept in the limelight
all during the time he was secretary
Just how Wilson will deal with con
gress, with Bryan In the cabinet, is
still a matter of speculation among
members of the house and senate. If
there ever were any differences be
tween Speaker Clark and Majority
Leader Underwood, the trouble has been
ironed out, and both men are willing
to work together and for the general
good of the Wilson administration.
It is doubtful, however, whether they
would work with the administration
very enthusiastically if it were turned
into a Bryan administration. Neither
Clark nor Underwood have any love
for Bryan and if he tried to dominate
congress, orders are even that he would
fall, and that Wilson's administration
would be embarrassed.

Wayland Come to Light
in Divorce Court
When Elbert I*. Wayland. a promo- !
ter of this city, wedded Jessica A. Way- j
land, his troubles soon multiplied, so •
that within seven years he has been:
made a defendant in a divorce action, j
lost most of his money, and yesterday i
Judge J. J. Van Nostrand said he
seemed to have committed perjury. The!
judge recommended that a warrant!
issue for the promoter's arrest.
Wayland was before the court to an
swer his wife's petition for $100, pend
ing the hearing for divorce. W r ayland
presented evidence to show that he
was emploj'ed by Mrs. R B. Clark in
stead of having employed her, as his
wife alleged. When given opportunity
to .produce Mrs. Clark in court as a
witness, he testified that he did not
know her whereabouts.
John J. Sullivan, janitor at the Cross
ways apartments, recognized Wayland
as P. B. Clark, who had apartments
in the Casa Madrone, opposite the
Crossways. He declared that he knew
Wayland as Clark and that he knew
a woman there named Mrs. • Clark.
Wayland's attorney said he would
rest on the record and await any ju
dicial action that might be taken. He
asserted that Wayland had expended
$4,000 on his wife in the last year of
their marriage and that his client prac
tically was penniless. Mrs. Wayland
before her marriage at San Jose, April
20, 1905, was a school teacher.
Wayland later was placed In the cus
tody of tho sheriff, but was released by
Judge Van Nostrand, after Mrs. Way
land and her attorney refused to swear
to a warrant against him. The court
declared that the attention of the grand
jury would be called to the case.
Following the annulment of the mar
riage of Vera M. and Charles M. Foye
by Judge G. W. Nieoll of Tuolumne, suit
was filed yesterday by Mrs. Foye
against her husband, who heads the
Foye Realty company, to quiet title to
a portion of a lot at Ellis and Stockton
streets valued at $100,000. The Foyes,
before their separation, entered into a
written agreement that the lot should
not be partitioned for eight years, and,
to protect her two-sevenths interest in
the property, Mrs. Foye asks that the
court recognize her to that share.
Foye owns the remaining five-sevenths.

by his cognomen, reveals himself to
his surprised fellow bluecoats in the
role of a connoisseur of art.
For several months "Big Nick" has
been going around with a serious air.
Some thought that he was sick; he
didn't turn up at his accustomed
haunts and on duty he spent much
time staring at pictures of every type.
Finally his secret was discovered.
Curator Barron met "Big Nick" one
day. It is a well known fact that If
anybody has anything that can be put
In a museum, Curator Barron will dis
cover that man with the surety of a
ferret. That's why the Golden Gate
Park museum building has no room
for half the donations.
Curator Barron met 'Big Nick" and
he found the secrej. Nick had re
ceived two paintings by old masters
from Austria and had been spending
all his spare thoughts on his fine paint
ings and comparing them with c-ther
pictures. A few days after "Big Nick"
showed Barron the paintings, Barron
took him out to the museum and
showed him a place where they might
be hung to advantage.
So the paintings went out to the
museum yesterday. One of them, b>
Guido Renl, depicts the death of
St. Francis Xavier. It is done on
mahogany. The other, by Lorenzo
Dotto, is a painting of St. Anthony em
bracing a child. The paintings are
valued at $10,000 each.
They were sent to "Big Nick" from
his godfather, Don Dojmo Vuletlch, an
aged priest of Dalmatia, Austria.
