Omaha, Neb., June 30. A special to
the World Herald from Lincoln, Neb.,
Congressman "William A. Sulzer, or
New York, and Fred Feigl, editor of the
Tammany Times, have arrived in Lin
coln, to visit Mr. W. J. Bryan. After a
conference with, the latter, Mr. Sulzer
"Regarding my candidacy for the vice
presidency, I am in the hands of my
friends. I have never been a candidate
for the vice presidency, in the sense of
soliciting support for the nomination.
In congress, however, and out of con
gress.my friends have been kind enough
to urere ml eligibility for the nomina
tion. But I want it understood that in
no way will I allow my personal ambi
tions to stand In the way of the cause
for which we are all contending. What
I do want, what my friends want, and
what the New York delegation will in
sist on, is that a man be nominated
for vice president who was a loyal and
sincere supporter not only of Mr. Bryan
but of the Chicago platform in 1896. We
want a man who will command the re
spect and confidence of the people, and
who will strengthen the ticket. Any
such man whom the convention may
deem fitter for the nomination than my
self I and my friends will actively and
gladly support.
Questioned regarding the position the
New York delegation would probably
take on the platform Mr. Sulzer re
sponded: "We will be for the unequivocal reaf
firmation of the Chicago platform. Per
sonally I am in favor of the especial re
affirmation of the plank favoring free
coinage of silver at the present legal
atio and the majority of the delegation
is in favor of it. We will oppose any
trimming or equivocation. The great
Democratic party can take no back
ward step.
'It has been erroneously reported.
concluded Mr. Sulzer, "that Mr. Croker
and ex-Senator Murphy will come to
Lincoln before going to Kansas City.
They leave New York tonight and will
proceed direct to Kansas City where
will meet them Sunday morning."
Mr. Feigl, editor of the Tammany
Times, the official organ of Tammany,
spoke enthusiastically of the prospects
tor Democratic victory in New York
this fall.
it will be hard to find more than a
handful of laboring men in New York
ity," he said, "who will not vote for
Bryan . They have learned to love, hon
or and confide in your great Nebraska
leader. Among the poor people of ou
city Mr. Bryan is loved as no public
man was ever loved before. The oppo
sition of the millionaire classes to him
is as great, it is true, as it was in '96,
and on Wall street he has no friends.
They not only fear but they hate him.
But the kid gloved millionaire casts no
larger ballot than does the man with
the dinner pail, and there are more men
who carry dinner pails than possess a
million dollars.
Roosevelt's nomination will not
strengthen the Republican party in New
xorK, continued Mr. Feigl. "It will
Weaken it. His opera bouffe method of
campaigning in costume, with brass
bands, cowboys and rough riders in his
train does not commend itself to the
good taste nor win the respect of our
people. We came within 18.000 votes
of beating him for governor, and the
Democracy of New York, united, virile
and aggressive, is far stronger todav
than it was two years ago."
Regarding Mr. Sulzer's candidacy. Mr.
Feigl said:
Mr. Sulzer is a wonderful campaign
er. He is honest, sincere and a fighter,
and he commands the respect and confi
dence of the common people. If New
York presents any name to the conven
tion It will be his, and she will vote for
him as a unit. From outside New York
Mr. Sulzer now has over 200 letters from
delegates to the convention pledging
themselves to his support.
vvnetner it be Mr. Sulzer or some
other man, our delegation will insist that
the nominee for the vice presidency be a
man who was true to Mr. Bryan and the
Chicago platform. And we will favor
the reaffirmation of that platform and
particularly the free silver plank. Bi
metallism is daily gaining adherents in
New York. I personally know hundreds
of men who were for the gold standard
in 96 and are for the double standard
And further, there are in Npw Vnrlr
thousands upon thousands of mpn who
voted for McKinley who are opposed to
mpenalism. Their hearts hpnt wUh
loyalty and love for the republic which
the fathers founded, and they are bit
terly indignant at the attempt of the
Republican party to place this frep
country in the imperial, land grabbing
man-enslaving column." '

New York, June 30. A writ of extra
dition for Charles F. W. Neely, charged
with embezzling many thousands of dol
lars from the postal department of
Cuba, was moved for by United States
District Attorney Burnett before Judge
LaCombe, in the circuit court. The mo
tion was made in accordance with the
provisions of the special extradition act
passed by congress in the closing hours
of the last session. Gen. Burnett was
assisted by an assistant United States
district attorney, while John D. Lind
sey appeared for Neely.
Neely, who has been in Ludlow Street
jail ever since his second arrest, in de
fault of. $50,000 bail, was taken to the
court room. The case was adjourned to
July 23 next to give Mr. Lindsey time to
prepare his brief and submit it and also
to enable the government to secure
more evidence. Mr. Lindsey opposed the
motion on the ground that the act of
June 6 was unconstitutional.
Gen.- Burnett argued that if the gov
ernment could s'urrender a prisoner to a
foreign country under international
comity without any special act, it could
do so all tire more by having this act.
The chief point in question seemed to be
whether the evidence submitted with
the indictment was sufficient or not.

'I am not a dyspeptic, but being con

on nervous depletion and sleeplessness.
so I resorted to one and another of the

alike tasteless and valueless as a brain

astonishing. I had no desire whatever
for sweet pastries, meats or in fact any
thing else; and my brain was as clear

"The peculiar advantage about Grape
Nuts food is that it supplies the nutri

the bad results of heavy eating. I
