Hearst Will Support The Nomiinee,
Whoever the Party May
William Randolph Hearst will stW>
port the nominee of the St. Louis
democratic convention, whoever lie
may be. says a Washington dispatch.
He authorized the Washington Post
to make this statement unequivocally.
He ridiculed a story from Albany
that he and Mr. Bryan. Arthur Bris
bane, Weaver, of Iowa, and others
were planning a huge bolt and the
formation of a new party. He said
he had been making his fight for the
nomination in the name of progress
ive democracy, but his fight had been
within party lines and would continue
to be so. Whatever the result. he in
tended personally and through his
newspapers to support the regulai
"I am for the St. Louis nominee,
said Mr. Hearst to the Post. Having
uttered that plain spoken sentence
lie added with a smile:
"I should. of course. like any other
man, be honored and gratified shoula
the democrats see fit to nominate me.
But I do not have to be bribed by of
nce to be a democrat."
" have supported the democratic
rcket in the last five campaigns. I
supported Cleveland three times ano
Bryan twice. I intend to support the
nominee of the party at St. Louis.
whoever he may be."
The interview was prompted by
-the Albany Dispatch. which said that
'Mr. Hearst. 'Mr. Arthur Brisbane. M\r.
Bryan and a few others were prepaz
ing to bolt.
"I have. not been able." he said "to
deny all the foolish things that have
been said about me. I have not even
kept up with all that has been said.
But of all the fool things. that is
-fooler' than all the rest." and Mr.
Hearst indulged in a hearty laugh
at the new adjective he had used.

appeared." Mr. Tracy said the edi
tor of The Herald and News had been
wrongly informed about many things.
He had not said in his advertisement
that he would have a box at the en
trance in which the money could be
placed. He submitted this: His first
hand bill distributed on the street,
had said the admission was free
meaning only for that night. Noth
had been said about any other night.
Ii anybody proved that his advertise
ment meant anything else he woia
give as a reward his tent and everything
which it contained. At the first meet
ing he had made a clear statement
as to the matter of his finances.
In the cities in which he had lectur
ed. said Mr. Tracy, his usual method
of raising money for his expenses wab
by subscription. His expenses includ
ing transportation of his tent. extra
hire, personal expenses. and such mat
ters. He had changed his method of
raising money when he reached
St-1th Carolina. because he was little
k%wn in this state, Instead f so
liciting subscriptions he had adopted
the plan of charging an admission of
live cents each night until the money
was raised to defray his expenses.
The expenses of transporting his
tent. etc.. were between SToo and S:75.
according to the distance.
He had stated at the beginning of
his ineetings. said Mr. Tracy, that any
ole who cwuld not pay would not be
refused admission on that account.
