Again Expresses Ililmself as Favoring
the Sending -of Uninstructed Dele
IMew York, March 28.-Williani G.
AlcAdoo has again expressed himself
as opposed personally to being a can
didate In April primary and as advo
cating that delegates to Democratic
convention should go uninstructed. lie
made public tonight a telegram to
George A. Lovejoy of Portland, Ore
gon, which in part said:
"I have your telegram advising me
that the McAdoo club of Oregon has
secured one thousand signattires to
place my name before Democratic
electors in the Oregon presidential
primary election to be held May 21
and expressing the hope that I will
grant permission to ille the petition.
"I deeply appreciate this generous
offer of support from my friends in
Oregon, but I earnestly beg them not
to enter me as a candidate in this
primary. I publicly stated in Febru
ary last that I believe the next Dlemo
cratic National Vonvention should be
composed of niminstructed delegates
who should be free to exercise their
unfettered judgment as to platform
"I also stated that I am not seek
Ilg and will not seek the nomination,
al though I should regard it as the diuty
of any man to accept a nomination if
tendlered to him unsolicited by. the
free action composed of free men and
wOIenl. Hlolding these deep convie
tions, I canniot consistently enter the
.presidential primary in any state
iwhere th objhec i; to ilstruct the
delegates for a particular candidate.
Tihe g rave issues confronting the

and the common good, a peculiarly ex
