Permanent organization of the con vention was furthered today, when tho permanent orgonitatlon committee chose Ollie James, the well-known Democratic leader and Congressman from Kentucky, as permanent chair man, Bryan declined to accept the chair- ,' manship of the resolutions committee, because, he declared, he is not "in ac-' cord with the forces that apparently 'control this convention."

BALTIMORE, Md, June 26 Bryan leaders today, commenting on the nam ing of Judge Parker as temporary chairman yesterday, declare that tho defeat does not mean tho repudiation of Bryan by Democracy. They say thoy still hold a veto power on the nomina tion, through the workings of the two thirds rule if not on actual numbers If Bryan men should be aligned on a clean-cut iseue. The rules committee voted today to defer the presentation of a platform until after the nomination of a presi dential candidate, on account of a lack of any definite indication beforehand as to whether the convention will go "progressive" or "conservative." Tho committee desires the platform and tho candidate to accord. In the credentials committee, a mi nority report will ,be presented in the cases of Carter H. Harrison of Chicago and Rager Sullivan, the Illinois Demo cratic leader. A few progressives today started movement to test the sentiment of tho delegates for John W. Kern for Pres ident. Francis J. Heney, when attempts were made by newspaper men to get him to divulge the nature of his mis sion, said ho had como to Baltimore merely to "see the steanrroller work." In declining the chairmanship of tho resolutions committee, Bryan saidl "I think the committeo and its offi cers ought to be in harmony with tho convention, I am not in harmony with the organization of the convention or with the national committee which con trols it, and it would not look well for the chairman of the resolutions com mittee to submit a minority report."
