HHS ,, refusal to answer the question
has" led to the circulation of many
Mlseroports and unfriendly news
papers have taken advantage of his
silence to misrepresent his attitude.
"itr. Bryan will not ask for or seek
a nomination and ho will not assume
t6 dccldo Hho question of his availa
bility. Jfe has been so amply recom
pensed by his party for what ho has
done' and for what he has endeavored
to do' that' he cannot claim a nomin
ation as a reward; nelthor should his
ambition' vbe considered, for he has
had .honors onough from his party
tostfy&ny reasonable ambition.
IThrt nnlv niip.tlnn thnt nueht til
weigh -!tb the party Is whether tho lln "mk1lt no ma,ttor who n,ay be
party oan'be strengthened and aided tho Hopubllcan nominee.
"No one can estimate the chances
t tho party In the uet campaign
with sufficient accuracy to make his
candidacy dependent upon tho out
look. White Democrats have reason
to be encoutaged by the fact that
Democratic principles have grown In
popularity and that Democratic pol
icies arc now praised by many who
denounced them a rew years ago,
and while further encouragement is to
be derived from tho fact that tho
Democratic party Is more united than
It has been for many yeas, and the
Republican party more divided, still
the action of tho Democratic party
cannot be made dependent upon tho
prospect of success.
"The prospects now seem excellent,
but a Democratic nnllonal convention
will be held, a platform adopted and
candidates nominated, whether tho
prospects are bright or glooiny, and
the party must make the best fight
it can whether It enters the campaign
with fear or confidence. If the
members of the party believes that
Mr. Bryan's nomination will help the
party, Its principles and Its policies,
he will accept the nomination whether,
tho Indication point ot defeat or vic
tory. A defeat can bring no dis
grace where the causo is a Just one,
hut cowardice would be disgraceful,
especially In one who is as deeply
indebted to his party as Mr, Bryan is.
"The next campaign will bo nn ap
peal to tho public conscience. The
investigations have shown not only
the corrupt use of large campaign
funds, but the only source from which
they call be drawn, namely, the cor
porations that seek to convert the
government Into n business asset.
The Democratic party stands for the
doctrine of equal rights to all and
special privileges to none, and there
fore cannot promise favors to favor
seeking corporations. The Democratic
campaign must be carried on by
volunteers who will work because
they desire the triumph ot Democratic
Ideas. We cannot hope to appeal to
the sordid or to buy tho purchaseablef
even if such a course vould,on
tribute toward Dotoocratlc success."
Work of Securing a Jury in
His, Case was Begun
"The Republicans must nominate
either a reformer, a standpatter or
ono whose position un public ques
tions Is unknown and tho course ot
the Democartlc party Bhould bo tho
same no matter which element con
trols tho Republican convention.
The Democratic party must make tho
fight for what It believes. "While It
may take advantage of Republican
mistakes, It must depend upon its
own merits for success and not up
on tho error of Its opponents.
"The action of tho Republican con
vention may have Its Influence In
tho determining of tho relative avail
ability of Democratic candidates, but
it ought not to have any influence in
determining the question whether thu
one chosen by the Democrats should
accept tho nomination. If tho rank
and fllo ot tho Democratic party de
sire Mr. Bryan to make the race, ho
dcntlnl ambitions wns not forth,

AGAINST MRS. BRADLEY
The State rests its Case at Noon after Examining a Nuni
ber of Witnesses who told of Mrs. Bradley having
made Threats to kill Senator Brown if He did not v
do Certain Things.
Washington, Nov. 15. The state
rested In Its testimony against Mrs.
Bradley for the killing ot former
Senator Brown, at noo ntoitay. Dam-
aging evidence was given by Detective
Grant, to whom Mrs. Bradley made
a statement after shooting.
"Sho told me she had brought a
revolver from Salt Lake Cljty,"-lio said
'and had thought it over a long "time
and Intended to shoot Drown. She
said she had not dono it on the lm
pulbe of the moment."
The defense vainly bought to have
this testimony excluded.
Dr. Kelly, ot Salt Lake, told ot
meeting Mrs. Bradley in Salt Lake
City, last summer. "She, said r if
Brown didn't acknowledge, his par
entage of the younger child sfie would
kill him," testified Kelly. I advised
her not to do It bub she snldt he'll"
