s6claltou held an Informal levee through
nut west of tho afternoon at tn Laclede
hotel the headquarters for Missouri demo
crats ivhen in tho city ourt dined this
cvtiling with a party ot p sonal friends
In his address before the Sllsaourl edl
tor Mi Bryan refrained scrupulously
from mentioning the recent action of tho
Ohio democrats In passing up the Kansas
Cltj platform and In hi public statements
to the press ho decltned to be Interviewed
ou that subject replying to all questions
I do not enre to tntk now I will discuss
the Ohio cohjontlon nud Its dongs fully
In the next Issue of My paper There is
too much significance nttachcdto that con
vention I think
When asked about the reorsantiatton of
thi > party he stated to representative
ot the local press The goldbugs I am
afraid are tiylng to administer nbscut
treatment to the rank and fle of the
pirtjYes
Yes Interposed Champ Clark who
was at Sir Bryann right hand throughout
tho afterncon it looks like a caso of tho
tall trjlug to wag the dqg I do not know
what the Issues of 1001 will be and I do
not think Mr Bryan tnrctends to know
but I know who will da the Issuing It
will be the men who were faithful to tho
ratty In 1000
Tonight In personal conversation with
Intimate friends Mr Bryan went a little
further In his discussion of the Ohio de
mocracys action although he did not go
ns full Into the matter ns It had been
c peeled ho would
I do not object to having It distinctly
vindcrslood he eald that I Intend to
fight to the bitter end every effort to forco
the abandonment of the Chicago and Kan
sas City platforms
Sir Bryan then entered upon n discussion
of the colonial policy upon which the re
publican administration has entered de
claring It to be his opinion that that policy
1 iiptv nnd Is likely to be In 1P01 the para
mount Jssno before the pcoale of the na
tion
On that Issue ho declared the de
moctacj of tho nation Is nnlted as firmly
as ever a party organisation was united
and I believe the majority of the voters ot
the nation believe that the republican
policy a sustained by ho supreme court
of the land Is not the pollry which the
American peopJywflnt to follow
lie rrlterftld hlj fornwr views on this
snlject nrnt others jr
Country editors of lijjsourl who are radi
cal Bryan men cohstrac bs remarks on
the Ohio ease to mean that he will at once
set to work to build up an organization In
evny State to combat ny tendency to
ignore tho platforms of the last two Na
tional campaigns

Tho leaguo thus far has handled the
Henderson end of the proposition rather
gingerly finding nn easier mark In Mr
Babeock It ts predicted however that
befoie the session opens thero will bo a
casting off ot disguise and tho league may
opposo Sir Hendersons reelection on tho
grounds that he Is responsible for placing
Mr Babeock on the committee and his
colleagues who would modify the tariff
to tho demands of tho West It this Is
done It will bring about Immediately an

publican party over thfr tariff question
Any attempt to prevent tho re election of
Mr Henderson for alleged reasons relat
ing to tho tailff will open the boll and tho
radical tariff men In the East will bo led

Sir Hendersons election was engineered
by a group of Western men under the lead

to Immediately attract other States and
to mako the speakership contest short
sharp and decisive Many of tho men In
the movement have for a long tlmo enter
tained the opinion that there would havo
to bo an abatement of tariff upon soma
articles to satisfy sentiment in tho West
It may not be correct to say that Mr
Hendersons election to tho speakership
had that end Jn vlow but tho fact that the

who have been and are his closest col
