New York July 11Tho Associated
Press today received the following
communication from Bourke Cochran
dated Indianapolis July 10 explaining
his declination to addrww the national
Democratic convention nt St Louis
I left St Louis yesterday nt 1 45

could not truthfully assure the conven
tion that Judge Parker had In my
opinion the faintest prospect of suc
cess I have mndo I n rule never to
Bay on a public platform anything
which I could not repent In the witness
chair I could not prophesy victory
and I would not foretell defeat Hllenco
was therefore the only course open and
the beet way to pursue it by my absence
When I reiichhcd Indianapolis I was
handed 1 telegram from Charles F
Murphy Informing mo of Judge Par
< JudlO
hers message to Mr Sheehan and urge
ing me to return Immediately
In an mutant tho whole situation
wnH changed The prospect which had
been black with signs of disaster nt
once became splendid with promises of
victory Tor many month I had been
preaching that the success of tho
Democratic party this year Involved the
continuance of constitutional govern
ment In thlH country This view was
expressed In the resolution submitted
to the state convention last April by the
Tammany inembcrfl and I think It Is
shared by every thoughtful man In
the country The ono thing absolutely
essential leader to Democratic success Is 1
Until now on ono possessing any

cept Mr Cleveland To him there were
weighty objection His ago Is ml
vnnced Many politicians believe them
II a widespread objection to Riving any
Inn however wise or virtuous more
than two terms In the presidency The
antagonism which ho has provoked
are numerous and bitter Still his run
ning qualities were excellent that time
delegates from the old city of New
York urged his nomination ns tho only
one thnt furnished tile slightest hope
oven of nn cxcltlm contest To bring
this about nnd to secure an unequivocal
ncknowlcdRement that the money ques
tion was settled wore the two objects
towards which the Tammany
delegation concentrated the efforts
forts of their members The
firm of thcl miss wholly Impossible
To accompli the second we felt that
It wnll only necessary to have the dele
gates from doubtful states demand It
At the Now York delegation on Tues
day mourning a revolution to this effect
offered by me wns suppressed by a par
liamentary maneuver After It had been
agreed by tile leaders to eliminate nil
reference tn the money tiucstlon I again
moved that the New York delegation
offer as an amendment In the conven
tion the financial plank imbmlttcd by
Senator Hill to the committee on reso
lutions but the motion was rejected
by a vote of W to 28 of the delegates
Under these circumstances tho nom
ination of Judge Parker who was with
out nny record on the coinage question
except that he had voted twice for Mr
Dryan seemed to preclude tho slight
est hope that he would receive oven ns
many electoral votes n Mr Bryan
polled In 1 O Hut this very putllll
inanity of lilt manager whirl led them
to surrender their own convictions and
to stllle every attempt of the Nw Yotk
delegates even to vole the opinions of
their constituents on this momentous
question furnished Judge Parker with
nn opportunity which he has Improved
1 I hOI revealed him to the people of
this country almost In nn Instnnt ns a
great lender the greatest of this gen
eration an honest man the mOil Im
pressive In dtrplayhiR that virtue that
I have over known either through ex
perience or reading n courageous man
of such Incomparable courage that
he was willing to throw away not merely
of of a nomination

or ulc equivocation on a matter of prlncl

avoid being placed In a position where I
must have told the convention that
Judge Parker could not In my opinion
escape crushing defeat on the receipt
of Mr Murphys message nt once or
dered I special train and hastened back
because I then felt free to tel the mem
bert If they still desired to hear from
me that on tho new platform which ho
himself had made he would be over
whelmingly elected
When my train arrived nt 4 oclock
In the morning the convention had completed
pleted Its work but If I had been pros
