BRYAN PROPOSES t
Principal .Planks lie Uopes to See in
Democratic Platform are Enumerat
ed. Include Prohibition and Wonin
Cleveland, 0., Feb. 15.-The "Plain
Dealer" tomorrow will publish an in
terview with 'William Jennings Bryan,
obtained by its staff correspondent at
Miami, Fla., in which the Democratic
candidate for president names the
principal planks he hopes to see in
conporated in the Democratic nation
al platform at the San Francisco con
.Mr. Bryan says he does not attempt
to dictate, but merely summarizes his
beliefs and opinions as a result of his
studying the political pulse. le
places the more important. planks in
the following order:
Indorsement of the administration
of President Wilson.
Opposition to enforced military
Opposition to proflteering.
Mr. Bryan practically predicted the
elimination of Governor Edwards, of i
New Jersey, and soldier candidates
on both sides for the presidential
.\lr. Bryan declares he has no dis
position to suggest in advance planks
on which the IDemocratic convention
might be divided, "but there are ccr
tain planks which will be in the plat
form as a matter of course. These I
am willing to mention."
"There will be a plaunk endorsing
the ;President's administration," Mr.
Dryan said. "not that every member
of the party endorses everything the
administration has done; not that al
majority of the convention will en
dorse everything that has been done,
but it has been a great administration
and the Democrats of the nation would
not think of entering the campaign
on a repudiation or upon a platform
silent on that subject.
"The platform will contain a plank
in favor of iprohibitlin as the perma
ncnt policy of the country and our
candidate will be pledged to the strict
enforcement of the law in letter and
spirit. hilvery state controlled by the
Democrats has ratified the national
prohibition amendment. it is incon
ceivable that the 'Democratic party

ion on this subject after having con
ributed so largely to the prohibition
"There being three states recorded
n opposition to national prohibition,
ve probably shall expect that our
andidate for president shall be se
ected from New Jersey and our can
Lidate for vice president from Con
kecticut or -Rhode Island in case our
:onvention goes wet. But we would
lot be sure of carrying those three
itates because conscience may break
mt there before election.
Those who talk about a wet plank
n our platform do not have an inter

"The iplatfori will strongly declare
,or wvoman suffrage, and the conven
'ion may be expected to propose ef
ective remedies, national, state and
ocal, for proliteering and his old
Mr. Bryan thought it safe to say
Ihat the party will declare ngainst a
retuirn to a protective tariff, and will
imdorse the income tax.
"That is, the Democrats will oppose
the plan of big business on this sub
ject," he said. "Big business and the
men of great wealth, the influence
which dlominates the Republican lead
ers, will try to shift the burden of I
taxation to the backs of the poor0."
"Labor (uestion -will ocepy-a large
place in our platform. I have no
doubt the party will defend the right
to organize and toipeaceably persuade;
declare in favor of an eight-hour day;
favor the right of collective bargain
ing. I also hope the Democratic party
will declare in favor of the creation
of machinery for the investigation of
all dispiutes between emiployer and
employe that differences may be set
tied before they reach the strike or
"It is impossible at. this time to say
how far the convention will go in ap

deal with many other subjects. like

positions regarding the farmer."

[ead of Brotherhood Indefinitely
Postpones Proposed Move. Confer.
ence Coming Late in -February.
Detroit, Feb. 14.-The strike of 300,
)00 members of the Brotherhood of
MWainteance of Ways Employees and
Railway Shop Laborers, set for next
ruesday, was tonight indefilitely tpost
poned by A. E. Baker, international
president of the union, In accordance
with the request of President Wilson
that action be delayed until after the
general conference of railway union
conmitteemen on February 23.
Notice of the decision to postpone
the strike was communicatd to Direc
tor General Hines by Mr. Parker in
the following message:
"In compliance with recomnienda
tions of the committee of the brother
hood now at Washington, I am in
dofinitely postponing the strike order,
which was to have become effective
Tuesday morning, February 17. How
ever, I am confirmed in my belief that .
strike action would have been eml
nentiy Just to force action on the
wage demands of the men for whom I
speak. It in evident our committee did
not desire that the maintenance of way
brotherhood should be driven into a I
position seemingly forgetful of the
public interest due to unfriendly in
terests, including tile avenues of In
formation by which the public can be
reached, the public being ignorant of I
actual conditions among these railway
workers. I desire to impress upon you
with all the force at my command the
absolute necessity of relief for our
inembers iimediately if a most ser
ous situation from which there will be
no retreat is to be avoided."
The telegram to the membership :
postponing the strike was sent out to- I
night to the approximately 6,000 local
secretaries of the brotherhood.
Late tonight Mr. Barker replied to t
'President Wilson's telegram inform- I
ing him of postponement of the strike
and that the maintenance of way un
ion would be represented at the gen
eral raillway conference. The mes- I
"I desire to urge upon you the ne
cessity for expediting action in the
matter. Promises of future relief will
not satisfy under fed stomachs; neith
er. will they protect the dependents of
the railway workers for whom I speak.
Ou1r members must have relief.
"lNot unmindful of the suffering to
which tile innocent public would be
exposed in event of a striko, we have
