Garrison or Lansing Suggested as
Probable Successor to Bryan that effect, and the President reflected the same sentiment in his letter. Ad miration and praise for the courageous inanner in which Mi Bryan had fought for and held to his convictions wore ex pressed by otllcials on every side, in cluding those who had been most vigorous in their opposition to his polieies. The strong personal attachment of the President and Mr. Hrynn has long been noticeable in theli every-day con ferences. Even to-day as they met in the Cabinet room, their greeting was one of affection and regard. It became known only to-night that twice before in the two years and three months of his term Mr. Bryan had of fered to resign so as to save the Presi dent from cmba i rassniont. and each time the President refused to accept the resignation. Throughout the con stant newspaper bombardment of Mr. Bryan for his views on peace, his ad vocacy of pi I'hibition and in.* speeches on the Chautauqua, tin President stood by the secretary, resenting ctiticisin of him. In domestic affairs, the t o men who were at the helm of the Democrat party in its hr.st ascendency into power in sixteen years, cooperated most har moniously. < 'fte'i Mi Bryan yielded some of liis own views, as on the cur rency bill, and used liis influence to assist the President s program in Con gress. It was not surprising therefore to ottlcials and friends of tlie President and Mr Bryan to learn to-niglit that the latter co:.tinned undaunted in his suppoit of the President politically, al though he coul'l not remain in the Cabinet and give, him ollicial help on a matter of principle which affected his entire philosophy of life. \Hot >i:> st M'H io\ or \i:\\ >r\i*ki? mi;\ Secretary Byran virtually )?ad con sidered himsefl as being out of the art ministration during the entire, day. Denying himself to newspapermen twice during the day at his usual time for receiving them, the secretary thereh\ aroused suspicion that some thing unusual had occurred After lunching with other members of the Cabinet, he returned to his otfice ac companied 1 ?> Secretary Daniels. who remained for a few minutes. Later Secretary Daniels steadfastly refralno from discussing what o.eurreil at the Cabinet mcetinu Secretary Bryan was at the State Department until ::5o o'clock, and dur ing the afternoon *aw Mr. Da'lama. the Brazilian aml assa^ ' \ few minutes before leaving, the secretary dropped into the oil'.ce of Counsel' r l.alisilie for a brief chat with the man who will take up his portfolio to-morrow. "There is nothing: to bo said." Mr. Bryan remarked to n group of news paper men as he left Counselor Kan sing's office. That was a few minutes before it had been learned unofiicially that the resignation had been submitted and accepted. "There is much speculation abroad." some one suggested to tho seer? tary. "Well." Mr. Bryan responded with a smile, "you know there is a law against ? peculation in futures. Von gentlemen want to he very careful in speculating in futures, you know." Then he joined Mrs. Bryan, who awaited him in an automobile. They rode for half an hour, returning to their home about r. o'clock. Mr. Bryan had just prepared to no out for dinner when a reporter for th<*. Associated I "ress reached the house. The secretary was attired in evening clothes and ap peared in a jovial mood. "Mr. Secretary, we are Informed that you have resigned." "Where did you get that informa tion?" h-- asked sharply. "I would like to be thoroughly in formed about s : h an occurrence he fore I discuss it." When assured tbat iris resignation had been aim -un ? d from the White House.

SPECTACULAR CAREER GAINED HIM WIDE FAME (Continued from First Page.) ! as .1 delegate for Champ Clark, Mr. Bryan caused another sensation at the ! Baltimore convention in 1911! by his tight on Tammany leaders, in the Now j ; York delegation, lie switched his sup | port to Mr. Wilson at a critical mo | inent, a circumstance to which lias been j described Mr. Wilson's nomination as ! welt as the birth of a personal break J | with Champ Clark. During the national i campaign of 1012, Mr. Bryan made; ? many speeches for Mi-. Wilson, prin I cipally in the Far West. The two men < I met for the tirst time during the cam- ' paign at Uncoln.

C ONTIM MS HIS lli;\OTin\ TO I.ROT I' lll.Mi \ .\i) I'OI.ITICS While holding the portfolio of Sec- i j retar.v of State, Mr. Bryan has con- ' ! tinned- in the public eye, not alone ? through his oflicia! acts, b\it by his | devotion to two things?lecturing and ? politics. One of the first sensations of ! his oflicial career was his announce ! inent that grape juice would bo sub stituted for alcoholic beverages when lie entertained members of the diplo- , ! malic corps. His statement that $12,- ? I i'.OO was not suflU-ient for a Cabinet i I officer, and he therefore must lecture; to earn more money, was another j j episode 'which drew forth comment' j around the world. He disregarded, 'newspaper criticism. declaring he! never absented himself when duties ! required his presence in Washington, i His letter concerning the distribution1 of patronage in Pan Domingo to "ile-i ; serving Democrats" was another in-! cldent widely discussed. Mr. Bryan's .opposition to the nomination of Hoger i Sullivan in'Illinois and his activity in. j other primary tights continued after his oflicial identification with the Wil-; ?-.on administration. His editorials in his newspaper, the Commoner, on pro-: hihition and woman suffrage, and his advocacy of these issues, irrespective of! . the attitude of silence of President' Wilson,-have furnished political gossip over his future plans and ambitions. j I.MAST AMIIITIOI s t|U AT ( A ni .XM'l' TAIII.K Members of the Cabinet who know > Mr. Bryan most intimately declare, howevf r. that he has always been the least ambitious man at the Cabinet) table and unswerving in his political support of the President. He vised his influence to keep the ranks of the ad-i mlnistration unbroken u.> tin- tariff and: currency bill. The secretary handled p?vonally the negotiation of ic^.rly thirty peace tifnties between the Dnited ; States ar.d foreign nations, by which all disputes were to be submitted to 'fin impartial investigating ommission for a year before hostilities could begin. The delicate negotiations in the-Japa j nese-f'hinese situation recently were .directly In the hands of Mr Bryan, who I 'consulted with the President con-! t t.-intly. When the antialien land-law contro-1 versv arose with Japanese, Mr. Bryan went to California and continued later here untiringly on the negotiations, leaving little to his subordinates. Mr. Bryan's now famous remark to Ambassador fliinda in a critical mo iment in the relations between the; I nited States' and Japanese?"There Is , nothing final between friends"?was but ore of the numerous expressions of his lasting peace methods. His numerous questions involved in the dealings of the United States with the faction leaders in Mexico also ab sorbed his attention at all hours of ? the day and nieht. ? Mr. Bryan's home life in the capital j has won the admiration of officials ?and diplomatists. He and Mrs. Bryan have entertained lavishly.

It was stated, how ever, that while in Washington yester- . day the Governor was in conference, with President Wilson at the White House, and it was Inferred that he had there learned of Secretary Bryan's resignation and its cause. THINKS UK VAN HAS TAKEN THE 1WPOIM I.Alt SIDE Colonel Joseph Button. State Com missioner of Insurance, discussing the t break between President Wilson and Secretary of State Bryan, said: "Bryan has the unpopular side in tho controversy. Tho President's note , to Germany has given him a str-nrth in this country which he never had before. It has won over to him a large element that tip to now opposed him. "Mr. Bryan has shown himself, ac cording to the host information we have in hand, an extremist for peace. President Wilson's stand has been firm and based upon strong principles, such ; as appeal to the American public. Wil- 1 son has shown himself the man <>f the ' hour in the crisis. "Failure of the people to sustain President Wilson in this matter would amount, as 1 view it, to a repudiation: of the Democratic party. The admin- | lstration has been a tremendous sue- ! cess, much to the gratification of the 1 Democratic leaders and greatly to the ' disappointment of the opposition. "In this contingency the most 'prob- ! able successor of Mr. Bryan as Seere- : tary of State seems to me to be Sec- j rotary of the Interior Bane. I think Robert Lane or John Bassett Moore tnieht be regarded as strong proba- j bilities." Former Governor Williams Hodges j Mnnn said: "1 am sorry to hear of any break in 1 Mr. Wilson's Cabinet. 1 have the high- j est regard and respect both for Mr. ! Bryan and Mr. Wilson, and regret to, hear of Mr. Bryan's resignation." CONFIDENCE OF COIWTRY WITH WII.SO.V, SAYS iihea Judge William F. Rhea, of the Stat' Corporation Commission, said; "The retirement of Mr. Bryan from j the Cabinet will hardly take the conn- ! try by surprise. I think we had suf ficient reason to anticipate it. The i country should stand behind President I Wilson, atui 1 am sure that it will. From the meagre information concern ing the break between the President and Mr. Bryan, I would not care to ( discuss the merits of this final clash, bm we wore ;ill aware of earlier fric tion: so the climax was duly antici pated. "Whatever the differences of opin ion between the President and the Secretary of State, the confidence of this country, I am sure, has been mer ited hy Mr. Wilson. The Democratic party has reason to place an abiding faith in his sound judgment and the wisdom ot his* policy In public affairs at home and abroad. "The effect of Air. Bryan's retire ment on the administration's success will be nil, in my opinion. The ad ministration has made good. It is the duty of this country to stand hy Pres ident Wilson." FIRM NOTE TO GERMANY WILL GO FORWARD TO-DAY (Continued from First Pape.) rlphts. Count von Bernstorff, the Ger man ambassador, called on Counselor j Lansing early in the day to Inform him j that, although the embassy quarters j had been removed to Cedarhurst. L. I., ho would remain here indefinitely to await a copy of the American note. Later in the day Mr. Lansing announced I the Herman embassy had transmitted I two more affidavits of two persons who claimed to have overheard persons say there were puns on the Lusitanla. Mr. Lansing said the affidavits were re garded as unimportant by the Depart ment of Justice, and decided there were no euns on the Lusitanla. I NO 1VTF.NTION Ali DELAY IN I*II10PAIIINfJ XOTU J The President emphasized to callers early to-day there had been no Inten tional delay in preparing the German note. He said many suggestions had been made by Mr. Bryan and others, j but that the peneral character of the note had not been modified. This was \ interpreted later as meaning that the Cabinet situation had been disposed of j last week, and that the delay subse quent thereto was really due to de tails In the careful preparation of the j phraseology of the note.
