permanent Chairman Smyth, of U
Democratic platform convention, t
day read the result of a test vote
the gathtering, which practically to<
from Mr. Bryan the Democratic lea
ership of Nebraska, which he h;
maintained for fourteen years.
The vote came on a motion made 1
Congressman G. M. Hitchcock, a ca
didate for the senatorial nominatio
which in effect was to eliminate t1
introduction of platform planks wi
accompanying speeches, unless su
mitted as a section of the majori
or minority report of the committ
on resolutions. Mr. Bryan, seated
a member of the Lancaster coun
delegation, was on his feet immediat
ly with a protest and offered o
amendment that would modify th
intent of the original motion. TI
Bryan adherents denounced the Hite
cock motion as "gag rule," and the
opponents declared that . "individu
rule" must not prevail. Chairmo
Smyth ordered a roll call on t1
amendment. When two-thirds hc
been called, opponents of Mr. BryE
realized that he was defeated and
wave of cheers that drowned the r<
Vote Unfavorable to Bryan.
As Chairman Symth read the r
sult, 436 against Mr. Bryan's amen
ment to 394 in favor of it, the del
gates sounded a fresh volume
cheers that seemed to indicate the
relief from the uncertainty that hE
existed as to the strength which 1M
Bryan might develop in the conve
The original motion of Mr. Hite
cock then was adopted.
The action of the convention prac1
cally prohibits any speech from I
Bryan unless, as a member of tl
resolutions committee, he shou
speak on one of the planks offered 1
the committee to the convention. Gn

The convention took a recess un
8 o'clock to await the report of ti
committee on resolutions.
In beginning his address Mr. Smy
"For many years we were told tb
the tariff was passed in the interE

Bryan's Candidate Speaks.
The differences of the Shallenbe
ger and Dahlman factions on the mi
or 'points of the platform did not pI
vent a solid front by them against t
county option issue, of which Mr. Br

At the opening of the raging sessi,

that failure to adopt the county plal

Dahlman until cautioned by Chairm;
Smyth. He declares that Bryan w
the only man who did or could le
the army to Democratic victory.
Majority Report Adopted.
The committee on resolutions 1
ported at the close of Mr. Patric]
speec hand the majority report w
read. There was unanimity of opi
ion on every phase save one, and
adoption was asked.
The plank in dispute was:
"We heartily approve of the da
light saloon law and we commend t
courageous action of Governor STh
lenberger in approving it."
The plank was adopt~ed by a vote
710 to 163.
It was then announced that tx
minority reports would be submitt(

question, favored by five of the seven
members, then was read as follows:

ie Bryan Addresses Convention.
1h Speeches were made by the spon
b- sors of thei)lanks, and the convention
Ly then settled down to the final battle.
e Mr. Bryan, speaking from the plat
t form in behalf of the minority plank
Y presented by him, was greeted by
e-shouts of applause and was listened
Ln to in silence. He said in part:
"If I have advocated that which is
not good for the State, let me feel your
. wrath. If you find I have done any
thing that is not for the good of the
al Democratic party, I do not ask your
L mercy. Who, less than I, could de

d Am I not aware what a repudiation at
your hands will mean to me?

this fight because I am not a can

Attacked by "Political Assassins."
Mr. Bryan here referred to the poli
tical battles he had waged and declar
ir ed that he had been fearless when his
Ld own future seemed at stake. Con
r. tinuing, he said:
"I have been called a dictator for
expressing my opinion. Your candi
dates here today haxe expressed their
sentiments. By what law am I com
pelled to remain silent when I feel
r. that the good name of my State is at
ld "It has been said that I am aggriev
yed because I have been sold out by the

LI. have been sold out by these liquor
m Democrats in my own State, and say
a. ed by the votes of self-respecting Re
h publicans who refused to aid in it.
"I expect to be in politics for many
years yet. I expect to aid in the work
dof the Democratic party, but I will
not remain silent when a band of po
litical assassins attack me.'
