ASK REDUCTION ON
GRADE ON THE MESA
On the ground that the reduction
of the eight percent grade on the
mesa would tend to open up a con
siderable amount of property, and add
Talue to the property already In that
vicinity, a petition to have this done
was presented to the street and grades
committee Monday morning. The peti
tloitwas signed by 30 property owners
in that section. It was proposed to
change the grade on the mesa from
Riree to California streets, running
north on the latter.
The' opposition to the work being
done was offered by those who have
already built houses in that neighbor
hood. These stated that the lowering
of the grade would damage their
holdings. They did not object to the
changing of the grade, but considered
that If it was done, the damages in
curred by them should be paid by those,
whose property would .bo benefitted
by the work. "

from the Tammany delegates. In his
statement Mr. Bryan said:
"I have received notice by publica
tion only. The only criticism I have
made against Mr. Clark is not that he
has acted wrongfully, but that he has
failed to act I may overestimate the
importance of the presidential office,
but I have felt that an aspirant for
that office ought to manage his own
campaign and not allow people to do
things for him without his direct and
"The papers announced that Mr.
Clark was neutral between Mr. Parker
and myself in the temporary chairman
ship fight and that he informed his
supporters to vote as they pleased. If
that contest were purely a question
between -judge Parker and myself as
individuals, his refusal to take part
would not be material, although he
never sent out a piece of literature or
had a speeeh made in his behalf that
did not represent him as my special
champion for 16 years. If he distrib
uted any literature in which he asso
ciated his name with Parker's, I shall
be glad to withdraw this statement
upon inspection of the literature.
Not a Personal Matter.
"But the contest between judge Par
ker and myself was not a personal

knows this. It was uelween progress
ive Democracy on the one side and re
actionary Democracy on the other, and
I contend that in such a contest It was
Mr. Clark's duty to take one side or
the other, If in his judgment there is
any material difference between the
two kinds of Democracy. If he insists
there is no difference, he ha3 no right
to complain of criticism at the hands
of those who believe that there is a
"But the activity of Mr. Clark's man
agers is as objectionable as his own
inactivity. They have been in con
stant cooperation with the reaction
aries. If Mr. Clark did not authorize
them to act he has so far as I know
failed to rebuke them for acting. I
take it for granted that he does not
object to the action of his managers in
soliciting or at least in accepting with
out protest the support of the 90 wax
figures which Mr. Murphy under the
unit rule uses to carry out the will of
the predatory interests.
The Real Issue.
"The public is not much interested in
Mr. Clark's opinion of me; he will have
&mple tln.e in which to express his
pinion after the convention, whether
he is nominated or not; but if I am any
Judge of the news value of Items, the
people would like to know whether he
believes that the New York delegation,
which is completely under the domina
tion of Mr. Murphy and which contains
among its numbers representatives, at

datory interest that 13 oppressing the
people whether he considers that this
delegation thus controled by one man
who is controled by the Interests,
stands in the same position as dele

whether he has any objection to a
nomination made possible only by the
support of the New York delegation.
Clark Spurns Advice.
"I have tried to advise Mr. Clark in
bis own interest as I believe, as well
as in the interest of the party, and it
is a source of great disappointment
to me that he should have listened to
personal enemies of mine more than
he has to me. In using the word 'dis
appointment I do not use it in a per
sonal sense, for I havia no desire to
impose my advice upon him; but I feel
that it is not presumptious for me to
assume that I am better acquainted
with the sentiment of the people than
those who have had Vis ear, and I am
sure that I speak for a larger number.
"I am sure, too, that I am as disin
terested as those upon whose counsel
he relies, for I have no interest in the
subject except my interest in the prin-
, ciples and policies -which can be ad
vanced through the election of a Demo
cratic president I believe Mr. Clark is
right at heart but during the .last few
days he has been misled and has failed
to take advantage of the opportuni
Bryan Picks Possibilities.
Continuing, Mr. Bryan said:
"The antagonisms that have been
aroused during the preliminary cam
paign, antagonisms which onght not to
have been aroused, should not prevent
the coming together of delegates upon
some common ground.
"New York is not necessary to a
nomination and under the circum
stances should not be permitted to
dictate the nomination. I do not mean
to say that the vote of New York
would vitiate the nomination if the
candidate had enough votes to nomi
nate him without New York, for in
that case the party would not be un
der obligations to Mr. Murphy for his
nomination; but if Mr. Murphy fur
nishes the votes necessary to carry the
candidate across the line, the candi
date who accepts the nomination un
der these circumstances puts himself
under obligations to Mr. Murphy and
to the influences which control him.
"I contend that a candidate so obli
gated would not appeal to the confi
dence of the public and would not if
successful at the election, be free to
serve the public with singleness of
"There is not an aspirant for the
nomination who would have dared to
go out before the people of any state
and say, 'I have the promise of Charles
F. Murphy that he will deliver me 90
votes which, under the unit rule, are
in his control, as soon as I have enough
more to give me the necessary two
thirds.' "I believe, therefore, that all pro
gressives are justified in refusing sup
port to any candidate who desires the
New York support and are justified in
withdrawing support if, after giving it.
New York should seek to add enough
votes to give the candidate the nomi

Clnrk Makes Reply.
Speaker Champ Clark issued a reply
to Mr. Bryan, after coming to Balti
more and reviewing the situation and
returning to Washington.
The Clark statement was In the form
of a letter to senator Stone of Mis
souri, replying to one pledging him
continued support and urging him to
remain a candidate before the conven
tion until the nomination was made
Mr. Clark pledged himself to do so, but
said had it not been for the fact that a
majority vote had been cast for him
on 10 successive ballots he would not
er courage any movement that might
tend to create a deadlock.

bet ?en the two leading candidates is
such that the progressive forces can

Several El'clbles Mentioned.
"We have s. vcri' Tverrn tnkinc

been placed in nomination who are en
tirely worthy of consideration. Sena
tor Kern, of Indiana, has already re
ceived the support of nearly six mil
lions and a half of Democrats for the
vice presidency and since that time he
has not only been elected to the United
States senate, but has distinguished
himself among his associates by the
prominent part he has taken. He is
the leader in the fight against senator
Lorimer. If there can be no agree
ment upon one of these now being bal

vviiAicwiiuin james, our permanent,
chairman, is, a national characu r, one
of the leaders of the house of repre

been In the forefront of the fight since
1896. Senator O'Gorman, New York s
member of the committee on resolu

to his state a distinction of which she

Suggests Culberson, of Texas.
"In addition to these we have sena
tor Culberson, of Texas, a man whose
public record would commend him to
the progressives of all parties; and I
would add senator Raynor of Mary
land, after hearing his strong plea
before the resolutions committee In
favor of a progressive platform. These
are but a few of the names that might
be sugge. ed. Surely, with such a

regarded lightly nor should the selec

to be the vice presidential nominee who

"In submitting the above views, I
recognize that I speak merely as an
individual, but I am not less interested
than the candidates themselves in the
nominating of a winning tleket and in
the prosecution of a successful cam

sent us here if we fail to measure up
to the occasion."
3Ir. Clark's Letter.
Speaker Clark's letter, under Wash
ington date, follows:
"Replying to the communication or
my supporters forwarded to me by you,
I beg to say that in ordinary circum
stances, I would be the last to encour
age any movement which might tend
to create a deadlock in a Democratic
national convention and thereby per
haps imperil the standing of our party
in the estimation of the country.
"I believe that I am speaking the
exact truth when I say that no per
sonal interest would weigh with me for
one moment as against my lifelong de
votion to our party. If a majority of
the. delegates had not declared ther
nreference for me as their candidate. I
'could not entertain your proposal. The
fact however, that they have done su,
on eight successive ballots, creates an
exceptional' condition which surely
merits careful and conscientious con
sideration. Party Custom Violated.
"It Is undoubtedly true that the cus
tom of our party was violated when
the convention refrained from ratify
ing by a two-thirds vote the expressed
wish of a majority. This was done.
according to my Tfndtarstanding. at the
instigation of Mr. Bryan, who success
fully solicited the cooperation of oth
ers in an effort to prevent such ratifi
cation. "Mr. Bryan set forth his reasons for
pursuing this course in his speech, ex
plaining his own change of vote. He
declared that I was a candidate at the
primaries of Nebraska as a progress
ive, and. that upon that understanding
he wasl elected a delegate and in -structe&'to
vote for me in the national
conventioa." This is correct I was re
garded then and have been regarded
for years as a progressive by tho
Democrats of Nebraska and by Mi.
Bryan's Change of Heart.
"What has since transpired to con
vince Mr. .Bryan that though in his
judgment I was a progressive only twn
months ago and even only one week
ago. I am not a progressive now? Have
I suddenly proved faithless to the prin
ciples which I have upheld steadfastly
for 20 years? No. Have I been recreant
to my trust as speaker of the house
of representatives? No. Mr. Bryan
cites no act of mine as evidence of his
assumption. He withholds his vo'.o
-from me because he 'will not partici
pate in the nomination of any man
whose nomination depends upon the
vote of the New York delegation."
Mr. Clark then quotes at length from
the statement read by Mr. Br; an in the
convention and continues:
"Although Mr. Bryan's words are
shrewdly chosen to avoid making
direct charge upon me. the implication
is plain. It is that if elected president
.of the United States I would consider
myself 'obligated' to those whom he
mentions and that I would be under
the 'control of those influences.
Fl Great Indignation.
"It would be unbecoming in one hold
ing my present official position to ex
press the indignation which I feel at
these veiled aspersions upon my char
acter. My Integrity has never befor"
