After hft nad become officially a candidate
matter, were different. He said that his Interest
in this state's campaign was merely the Interest
that he took in all state campaigns, and that he
would take no part in it unless he were a can
didate. He added that his abstinence from state
politics was so complete that even in his own
state he had not tried to pick the delegate*,
oven when he was seeking nomination.
Speaking of his trip around the world. Mr.
Bryan said his Investigation of foreign govern
ments and policies had only made him more sat
isfied with this country.
As a final question one of the reporters asked:
"Do you believe in public ownership?"
•How many times must I say that I can not
and will not discuss politics?" Mr. Bryan de
manded. "I am all out of touch with that phase
of American conditions. I will say. however.
that I was much impressed by It abroad."
The Prlnzess Irene, anxiously expected, did
not pass through the Narrows and round Into
the bight off Quarantine until 3:15 p. m. She
was met there by the yachts Illinl and Cayuga
and two towboats bearing Mr. Bryan's friends.
The mini had been waning off the Atlantic
Yacht Club pier, while th© other boats had been
at various North River piers.
A 6 the Prinsece Irene came up through the
Narrows Mr. Bryan and his family stood on
the port side of the promenade deck, and he was
easily distinguishable through marine glasses
from shore He was glad to see land again,
amid* from any sentimental reasons, for not
only was he seasick through the voyage, but he
had suffered from dyspepsia for several days.
He was accompanied by his wife and his
daughter Grace. Mrs. Bryan went with him, to
the home of Lewis Nixon, on Staten Island,
while Miss Bryan remained on the steamer until
It had been docked m Hoboken. Colonel Moses
C. Weunore. of St. Louis, and Mr. and Mrs. M.
P. Dunlop and Miss Dunlop. who were travelling
companions of the Bryans during the Conti
nental tour, were also on the steamer.
The Prinzess Irene anchored In Quarantine. A
few minutes later the tugs Eugene P. Moran
and Julia Moran tied alongside with about
three hundred Nebraskans on board. Among
them were Mayor Dahlman of Omaha, Mayor
Brown of Lincoln. William C. Hoge. chair
man of the Commercial Travellers' Anti-Trust
League; David O'Brien, of Omaha; Frank H.
Dunlop. of Omaha, who was in charge of the
special train which brought the Nebraska dele
gation here, and Edward Richmond, of Lincoln.
Mayor Dahlman had his lariat with him. all
ready to rope the Presidential possibility and
carry him away from the Nixon party, but ap
parently forgot to do so in the excitement of
Mr. Bryan's debarkation.
The tups were laid alongside the Irene, the
Westerners singing their song. "The Nebraska
Boys." Edward Field Ootra's yacht Illini. drew
alongside the tags, and Mr. Gotra and Lewis
Nixon crawled over them and boarded the Irene
with one or two of Mr. Bryan's closest friends
from the toe? boat delegation.
They went to Mr. Bryan's stateroom and were
In close consultation for about ten minutes.
When they came out they announced that Mr.
and Mrs. Bryan would go to Lewis Nixon's
home on the Illini.
Mr. Bryan then went to the head of the Jacob's
ladder thrown over the rail to the tugs, shook
hands with those passengers with whom he had
become friendly on the steamer, among them
being ex-Justice Palmieri. Then with Mrs.
Bryan and his friends he made his way over
the tugs to the Illlni, which took them to Mr.
Nixon's place at Grymes Hill.
Knowing that the party was to land on the j
island Inspector Schmiuberger sent Captain
Crowley. Captain Farrell and some threescore
patrolmen to Stapleton to maintain order.
After steaming around the war ships still an
chored off Stapleton. the Illini dropped back
as far as the Lone; Dock and anchored.
An hour later Mr. Nixon went ashore in the
yacht tender, telling the watting crowd that
Mr. Bryan was coming ashore directly. Half
an hour dragrged on. and Mr. Bryan did not ap
pear. Mr. Nixon got as impatient as the others
of the crowd. He declared to several of his
friends that efforts were being made on board
the lilini to indue* Mr. Bryan to go straight to
Manhattan. He then jumped into a launch and
'.vent out to the Illinl.
Wbea he returned ten minutes later he had
Mr. Bryan with him. Shaking hands right and
left with the crowd. Mr. Bryan made his way
to Mr. Nixon's automobile. The road al! the
way to the Niton place. Grand View, was lined

deep i'ol.iicp.l significance.
Mr. Bryan and bis wife returned to the yacht
Illini at 1:40 o'clock this morning, after they
had dined at the home of Mr. Nixon. At the

the ten members of the committee went Into a
conference, which lasted until nearly midnight.
At 12:20 Mr. Bryan and his wife entered Mr.
Nixon's automobile and were conveyed to the
Ocean Yacht Clubhouse. Ab he went down tha
dock to board the steam launch the yacht club
members fired a salute of three guns in his
Tho party boarded the Illini. and will remain
In Oraveaend Bay until this morning, when the
yacht will steam to Manhattan, and Mr. Bryan
will land at Pier A. After the conference last
night Mr. Bryan refused to divulge what trans
rir»d at the conference.
It was on board the Irene that the most enthu
siasm waa displayed. There was so much of it
that Mr. Bryan, despite his uncommunicative
mood, waa moved to speech. When he was mak
ing his way over the tugs to the Illini the crowd
halted him on the rail of one of the boats and
held him there until he made a short speech. He
told briefly of how glad he was to see the peo
ple, ending up:
"I am going to do all I can to help you Demo
crats. If anybody here can better express him
self than T have tried to express myself, I'll pay
his wages for a month if he'll step up and tell
you how good I feel."
"I'm going back to Nebraska and stay there,"'
he announced.
"Well keep you there until 1908 and then it's
the White House for yours." yelled back some
one in the crowd.
Miss Bryan did not go to Staten Island at all.
but went from the Hoboken piers directly to the
Victoria Hotel. The tugs with the Nebraskans
on board did not reach West 22d street until
long after nightfall, when the Westerners strag
gled back to their hotels.
Few newspaper men reached Mr. Bryan. The
revenue cutter which took them down the Bay
was under the command of Boarding Officer
Steiner. Although Steiner knew of the Impor
tance of the occasion, and there was apparently
no reason for delay, he refused to take the cut
ter down the Bay until the Prinsess had been
in Quarantine for more than twenty minutes.
Then, after requests for haste from the news
paper men. he twice halted the cutter to board
tramp steamers, causing more delay. By the
time he had reached the Irene she was well on
her way up the Bay, and the whole affair, so
far as any chance of seeing Mr. Bryan was
concerned, was over. By this thirty or more
newspaper men. representing the papers of this
and other cities, were deprived of an oppor
tunity to Interview Mr. Bryan. A reporter for
"The Brooklyn Eagle." who came over on the
name steamer and had obtained the above inter
view with Mr. Bryan in the course of the voy
age, came to their rescue.

Mr. Bocschenstein said that William Randolph

Chicago which would put up an entire ticket at tEe
Cook County election In November. This league
la to be extended throughout the state. It is going
to absorh the old Progressive Democracy In Chi

the independent organization In •'■» state ■1*
of Chicago.
Roger C, Sullivan was also at the Waldorf yes
terday, but restrained himself when he was asked
to comment on Mr. Bryan's opinion of him. "We
have all said a good deal about this," he. said, but
I think now I had better say no more. "
A friend ot Mr. Sullivan said that the latter fell
that so leng as he had been Indorsed and the con
vention had also declared for Bryan for the Presi
dential nomination. It would not do to stir up any
bitterness now. . •' , ■■■■
"Mr. Sullivan could. If he had desired." said the
friend, "have prevented the indorsement of Mr.
Bryan at the convention, but. on the contrary, he
asked his friends to support the Bryan resolution.
If Mr. Bryan had wanted to raise objections to
members of the national committee simply be
cause they had had connections with corporation?
he might as well have singled out some of the
others for attack as Mr. Sullivan."
Mr Sullivan, it Is said, doe* not intend to go
to the Bryan reception In Madison Square Garden
to-night. He refused to commit Titmself on the
question when asked print blank by the reporters.
•'I am here." he said, "to attend a meeting of a

also taking a vacation of two weeks and am going
to the seashore."
Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Bocschensteln will he In

Mayor Dunne was elected, when he returns from
Europe about September 11.
Denies That He Will Control Kings
County Delegation.
Senator McCarren. who Is generally conceded to
be the Democratic boss of Kings County, perceiving
that political bosses are none too popular Just now.
indignantly denied yesterday that bis views as to
the proper person to nominate for Governor at the
Democratic State Convention would control the
delegates from Kings County. ",'*■*.
Speaking of the assertion of William Randolph
Hearst that he (McCarren) bad at one time ex
pressed himself as in favor of Hearst. Senator Mc-
Carren said that he had never declared himself for
or against any candidate for the nomination for
Governor, and added:
Of course. it might be assumed because of my
position as chairman of the executive committee
of our organization that any position which I
might assume would Indicate the attitude of the
organisation. If such an Impression exists It Is
erroneous. Of course. I may be a delegate to the
state convention at Buffalo, and na such will prob
ably have a preference for a candidate, but the
attitude of the whole delegation from Kings County
must be determined by the delegates themselves,
and, if any person attempts to usurp the preroga
tives of the delegates before they are sefecteC I
venture to say he will be very properly rebuked.
Of course. some rude, vulgar or Illiterate political
host) might find difficulty In comprehending this
situation, but it is true nevertheless.
Downtown Republicans Trying to Boom Ely
The Down Town Republican Club of the 2d As
sembly District is out with a circular letter asking
support for Ely Rosenberg, Mr. Parsons's candidate
for leader in the 2d. After appealing for assistance
In ridding the district of "despotism and bosstsm"
the letter says:
The population of this district, being the most
cosmopolitan of any in the city, made up as it Is of
citizens from all parts of the world, many of whom
have sought the shores of this land only after they
have felt the iron grip of their old despots, and
knowing from experience what despotism means
cannot much longer remain Indifferent to the exist
ing conditions, and we therefore ask them to grasp
this opportunity of asserting their Jum claims for
proper representation of their district by men capa
ble and worthy of the trust imposed upon them
To accomplish this we must select a man who
possesses t lie qualities of character requisite to a
lead< r— courage, fearlessness, determination and
skill, and. above all. one who Is truthful r.nd firm
in his conviction? of duty.
Such a person we have found in Ely Ro«=r-nb»-rg
