"The 'ler saves it," was the reply. I
Kxplaining what he meant by the claim
to being tlie original harmotiizer, Mr. j
Hry.in explained that he wrote to the sub

Committee suggesting that they consult ,
the two leading candidate and try to
agree on a progressive for temporary j
chairman to sound a keynote. 1
"What two candidates did you mean,
Clark and Wilson?" !
"It ought not to be necessary to explain 1
who the two leading candidates are.

"It was offered to you and you refused
"Yes. I wrote to Mr. Mack when my

Ijiter Mr. Hryan said that no person .

"The leaders say Hint you were offered
the p'rmnnent cliainnan-hip?"
"Yes," replied Mr Hrynn slowly, "but

"Yes, on one occasion a certain good

Hryan talked bitterly of the eight

dared, had tried to "override the wishes :
of th" other eight "
"It is suggested. Mr Bryan that Judg"
Pnrker mad" speeches for you when you .
were a candidate?"
"That is true, and I made speeches for
Judgo Pnrker when he wns a candidate,"
replied the Commoner with a smile
"The reason given for selecting him
is that he was a former candiditc for

Mr Bryan declared that tho whole

however, to say precisely what course

II It nl Uiiiiit on llnnd.
Mr Bryan's train was due at the Union
Station at :i".'u P M , and his friends had
prepansl long before that to turn on the
noise. At - P. M squad of Clark men,
distinguished by their rd badges or their
lioun' dawg badges, or Wilson men wear
ing straw huts banded with "Win with
Wilson" ribbons, were on the march from
the two hotels, where thu life or the con
vention preliminaries had been so far.
It was particularly noticeable that the
Clnrk and Wilson followers were in the
forefront of the Bryan reception com
mittee. They did mo-t or tho cheering
in the long wait ror the train nnd they
were the ones who pullhnuled folks who
I had got bored or tired and wanted to
I ureal: nwny.
"Stick around " they calWl out, "and
whoop it up for tho biggest man In tho
Mlclmcl l'rancls Doyloof Philadelphia,
who is acting as Mr. Bryan' Hecretiry
here, had charge of tho reception ar
rangements, wlfhhim at tlicstation were
Hvcmon W. Jennings of Philadelphia,
a Wilson delegate but a particular friend
of Hrvan: P. 1j. Hall, the National Com
mitteeman from Nebraska, who Is a Clark
man; Roland S. Morris of Philadelphia,
a delegate instructed for Wilson, and Gen.
Felix Agnus, editor of the Baltimore
Aim rican. At 3:20 P. M. it was given out
that the train wan an hour late. That
information didn't discourage the Hryan
rooters, nor did the showers that came
luter. ''They took the wetting heroi
cally. When tho hour wns up tho train
caller had pome more bad news, but still
tho crowd stuck, and when the train
finally slid in at 5:43 P. M. there were
easily 2,000 crowded insido tho station
and blocked along tho front.
When Mr. Hryan stepped into the sun
light there was a big yell waiting for
him. He raised his hat and the sweat
drops gleamed on his bald head. He
assisted Mre. Bryan and their son-in-lnw
and daughter. Mr. and Mrs. Hargreavcs.
into an automobile that Mr. Halt had
provided, swung his hat once or twice,
flashed a whole kinctoscope of Bryan
smiles nnd was away In a flash to tho
Belvedere. The original yell died out,
but' the machine rollpd through a lane
of hurrahs, for the sidewalks along Charles
street were crowded. Mr, Hryan raised
the big soft gray hat timo after time,
but he shook his head when they asked
him to make a speech just ono little
speech .
.Men Another CherrlnK Thrnnv.
It was a short run to the Belvedere,
half n do.en blocks, and Mr. Hryan was
spun in the grip of another howling
crowd before he had timetoget his breath.
This timo delegates from Mississippi.
Kentucky. Tennessee. Indiana and Illi
nois joined in tho salute. For the time
being the Belvedero had omptled Itself
onto the sidewalk. A squad of police
strove until they had cut out a lane for
the Brvan party, but the crowd broke
througli ana scattered the few policemen
in their efforts to gpf close enough to
shake hands. Mr. Bryan wa turned and
twisted into the hotel lobby, spinning and
revolving and gasping nut glad greetings
for old friends. It was "Hollo, Bill,"
"Hello. Tom," "Am I glad to bo hero?
You know f am." The lobby roared
steadily. Individual shouts broke through
the racket occasionally as tho rooters
got really worked up.
One Western delegate sang out: "Look
out for Armageddon, Hill!" but his whoop
was drowned in the steady pound of
"Hryan!" "Bryan!" "Bryan!" There wero
shouts that seemed to find the place where
Mr Hryan keeps his laughter machinery.
"Sling your hat. in the ring, Billy!"
came from a bunch of Clark men. A
Wilson delegate who stood on a chair
shouted, "You'll beat 'em in to f!" And
from half a dozen at once came a veil.

squeezed into the reception room some
how and levelled their quest ious. Bight
off the reel they put this one:
"Are you going to keep up your fight

"Now boys," said Mr. Bryan, "1 will not
answer that question. I" have nothing
more to say on that,"
"Why did you oppose Judge Parker?
For jiersonal reasons.'"
"Not a bit of It I have nothing personal
against Mr. Parker. I simply made up
my mind that conservatism should not
le tho keynote or this convention."
"The story is that several leaders have
combined to down you ut tho start. Will

"you don't need to ask mo about it. An

more of Tom Watson, who is to bo a factor
in the convention as a delegate
Wutson has bpen mad at Bryan ever
since 1800, when Bryan preferred Arthur
Sewall, the regular Democratic nominee
for Vice-President, to Watson, who got
the nomination for Vice-President from
the Populist convention.
As soon as Watson learned that Bryan
was opposing Oscar Underwood Watson
espoused Underwood's cause and led the
fight tor him ih Georgia and was elected
as a delegate. Ho says that he is coininu
to Baltimore ns a counter irritant to
Bryan. Recently Watson has had some
trouble with the postal authorities over
literature he has sent throuch the mails
attacking the Catholic Church and some
of the clergy by name, the matter being
declared bv the postal authorities to be
obscene. Cardinal Gibbons has been the
special object of Watson's wrath and
denunciation and the Cardinal has con
sented to deliver tho invocation at the
opening, of the Baltimore convention.
