BRYAN HERE REFERS TO
William J. Bryan came to -Chicago
today. He came to attend,
a Presbyterian Church dinner
here tonight, and dropped in at
the bearings of the senate com
mittee investigating the Lori
mer election, to have a chat with
Senator Kern,' his running mate
some years ago.
When asked whether he would
accept" a nomination, Bryan ex
ploded: "Are y(?u .tendering t it to me?
Please ask me questions that are
pertinent. I'm not accustomed to
havjng nominations tendered to
me by newspapermen."
Riscussingthe recent elections,
he said : . -
"Taken as a Vhale, they don't
indicate r landslide to either
party in 1912. The Republican
gains in the east show that the
predatory interests are lining, up
back of the president, and every
inch of the ground will have to' be
fought over. We have another
session of congress, which willN
materially affect the campaign.
No one can speaTc with any ceri-'
tainty in advance. All that is apr1
parent flow is that the campaign
will be a sure enough fight, apd
