Poctl*»J. Me., July 38.—Hon. E. Tt
Wlwlow, tho Democratic candidate for
fovCTiwr. made public two letter# today.
One notified him of Ms nomination a&
governor by the Democratic state conven
tion. In this «euer the loyal support of
the J>(*m<y*rmcy of .Maine was pledged to
Mr. Wlnsiow. To this letter of notifica
tion Mr. Winoiow replied an follows:
' «ient!#m' n: Your letter of June 34,
informing me of the action of tho Demo
cratic mate convention held in Portlattd
on June 17, which mad • tne the unanimous
choice of the convention aa candidate for
governor to be voted for at the approach
ing election, va* duly received, and in re
ply *ouM ray I deepy feel tho honor con
ferred upon tim. and I am profoundly
grateful to the -Democrats of Maine for tlm
confidence they have placed in me, in
piaung me in nomination aa their stand
ard bearer. The platform adopted by the
state convention, which has declared for
a single sold standard. 1s plain, and 11 wai
upon the platform that I m nominate
and I could not, even had T so desired,
acoapt thl* nomination under any other
dr umstances than to *iar>d firmly upon
toe platform made by the Democratic
party of Maine.
The Democratic national convention
adopted it oiatform declaring for the
U*+ a»tl unlimited coinare of sliver. and
there is strong rresMire brougm. io b*ar
to have m* announce mvseif in favor of
th*» national convention. which I did not
consid»r was right to do in accepting the
nomination, as it was tendered to ms by
th»- *tate convention.
"Th»re have been manr expressions on
the of the Democrats of Maine in
regard to mv dtilv. hut it has been plain
to me at ail times that there was but one
thing for m«» to do. and that was for me
to s'and firmly by the Maine platform.
"Since the Democratio national conven
tion It has been thouaht advisable to hold
some meetlnss of conference with the
members of the state committee, and the
hading members of the Deocratic party
that full and free expressions might be ob
tair.rrj. and it was plainly shown that a
wide difference of opinion existed, and
many of the Democrats of Maine thought
It mv dutv to come forward and lndorso
the Democratic national o'atform.
"I have given no expressions up to the
present tune as to what I should <lo. hut
have given the matter a great deal of
thought and studv. and see but one th ng
lor me to do. and stand as I wish to with
the people of Maine. That is to decline
the nomination so kindly tendered mo.
and I assure you that i.o one regress this
more than 1 do. It la very evident from
the free expressions of opinion that if I
wish to secure the vote of the Democratic
rarty I shall bo obliged to harmonize with
both the sola and ailver platforms, and
that I cannot do under any circumstances.
Yours very truly.

"That Is part of what we shall dinc jss at

conventions which met in this city last
week have left for their homes and no
body remains except a few of the leaders
of both tarties. A majority of the dele-

are still in the city, as is aieo <}. W.
Thompson, a member of the notification
It ba-» not yet been derived *hm or
where Bryan and Sewall will be notified
of their nomination a. 1 * standard bearer#
by the n'w Silver parly. Messrs. I>ane,
Stevens and Thompson will meet tomor
row, to confer In regard to this matter,
*«> d some action will probably t»e taken
as to the time and plat# l . An executive
<-ommittee of the Silver party has not yet
been appoints and until the headquarters
have been established this will not bo
done. Organiser Kenney. of California,
has been recommended for a position on
the Democratic executive committee and
will probably be appointed.
A rumor got out today to the effect that
the Populists would withdraw Watson,
their candidate for vice president. If Sew
all did not himself withdraw. A represen
tative of the Associated Press called upon
Secretary Marion Butler and asked him
wh" if his party desired a union of the
silver forces, they nominate another can
didate for vice president. "Because." he
said, "we found that by so doing our
party organization could be better pre
fer ved in support of Mr. Bryan than by
the nomination of Mr. Sewall."
"Does not tins selection lead to much
emba rra#sment?"
"Oh, yes; it was our only alternative."
"Will the Democratic and Populist com
mittees make tome arrangements to unite
their votes?"
"The two party organisations will bo
kept entirely separate and distinct and
the two campaigns will be conducted sep
arately on parallel lines, but we hope to
vote and be united."
"It is hoped that Mr. WaUon will bo
"This will not be done. The selection
of Mr. Watson was a deliberate action by
an overwhelming vote which voiced the
sentiment of delegates fresh from the peo
ple, who themselves had deliberated upon
the situation since the Chicago conven
tion. The People's patty, in Its desire to
unify the reform forces so as to make
victors' possible, met the Democratic party
more than half way by taking their can
didate for president We could not unite
upon Mr. Sewall and if we had attempted
to do so It would have disorganized our
forces and endangered the election of Mr.
"It is in nowise a reflection upon Mr.
S- wall and we do not believe that he or
his friends will so consider It. On the
contrary we hope that he is patriotic
eno igh to put the success of the cause
arid the welfare of the country above per
sonal interests or aspirations*. In short,
Mr. Sewall is the one man In the United
States who has It In his power to com
pletely unify tho hilver forces and make
victory over the gold combine absolutely
certain. This Is the unanimous opinion
of our executive committee "
In an interview tonight Senator Butler
firrther said: "Gen. James p. Weaver,

Hl* Suppressed Dispatch to the Pop.

Chicago. July S - Amon? those who re
turned from Bt_ i-oui> today *\u a gentle

dispatch from Mr. Kryhu to Senator
Jones, chairman of the national D»mo

memory and gtves the following as the
substance of the document about which
there? w;»-i so hi tic i t ilk . nil excitement
during the last day of the Populist con
vention. What is subjoined may be relied
upon as being substantially correct:
TaiwidrrtiiK all the dn umnan.cs and
conditions," wired Mr. Bryan. "I conclud
ed that the Populist convention should not.
consider my name for presidential candi
date, but If It determines to nominate me.
notwithstanding Otis declaration, that
there may be no misunderstanding. I de
sire in advance to say that I shall not
during the campaign discuss any other Is
sues than those outlined in the Chicago
platform. I desire above everything e;se
to be Instrumental in having enacted into
the laws of the Cnlted States the free and
unlimited coinage of gold and stiver at
the present ratio of IS to 1. without await
ing ihe consent of any other nation.
"The Rrpublican platform adopted at St.
Louis asserts that the bi-metalllc system
should be restored, but that the American
people are helpless to hring about bi
metallism for themselves until foreign
nations are willing to assist. The Atn-b
b >n p«* r, ple cannot afford to surrender the
right to legislate for fhemselves on all
questions, find -o long as the right is
disputed it suri»asses all others In import
ance. The Populist platform preeeuts sev
eral new issues to dlacuss which, during
this campaign, will, in my Judgment. en
danger the sucre«s of our cause. I am not
willing to be a party to anything which
will divert attention from the money
"Nor am'l willing to be placed in the
attitude of securing help from other polit
ical organizations by sacrificing my asso
ciate upon the ticket. He Is as squarely
upon the Chicago platform as I am myself
and he has defended the cause of bl-met
ulllsm against much greater opposition
than have the men of the West and South.
I desire to be left free to support 8< wall
during the campaign. It Is due myself
and the People's convention that there
should be moat outspoken frankness be
tween us."

"there was attached a postscript request-

Xew York. July 27.—The WorM this
morning publishes the following dispatch
from Thompson. C,a„ alined by Thomas
K. Watson, the Populist candidate fur
vice president:
To the questions asked me I reply as
First-1 will run the race to the end.
Second—l will mak»> the fight even If
SewaH does not withdraw.
Third—My opinion of the Fifty-second
congress, which was arraixned In my
book, has undergone no change.
Fourth I am not a political trader, and
wll! not resign In Sewali's favor even if
offered a cabinet position.
Having answcrtsl your questions, pleis*
allow me to state briefly my reasons for
the rer»*Uea to the questions numbers one
and two: 1 aHow'-i the use of my name
to save my party from extinction. In my
opinion the continued existence of the
People's rarty 1' indlspenstMe to the suc
cess of free stiver.
For me to withdraw would be for me
to sign the death warrant of my party.
Ours Is the party of fr*t» silver, and we
maintain* 1 that principle w'dle the Demo
cratic party In IV.C and IWI was making
war upon It. We do not Think our p« r 'y
shoul l now close up and quit busings
simply b ause ®he Democrat* have ptr
tially duplicated our signboard.
If ih» Democrats are so unreasonable as
to refuse us Populists of the South any
recognition at all. that fi-t would show
that the real purpose of the apparent
adoption of our principles is to kill our
party and not to enact those principles
into law. If the Democrats are sincere
they will not try to put upon us such
terms that every man in our party at tho
South will feel Insulted and humiliated.
If Mr. Bryan did not want our support
Senator Jones h.td no business at St. fio'iis
.a all. If Mr. Bryan does want our *up
port he ought to be willing to udopt the
policy which will most certainly assure
him that support, and that policy Is to ac
cept as a running mate a Southern Popu
list named by the unanimous voice of the
Populist convention.
Our party bas gone to the extreme limit
of generosity In the effort to procure a
urrton of the sliver forces. We dtd rot
t laim first place on the national ticket.
W'e are content with the second.
