iTBE EVENING TIMES, WASHINGTON, WEDNESDAY, APlfiL U, 1900.
YindicaUon atlhe'election last night to discuss future mores. It has not been decided who will be the delegates to the Kational Convention. A great many names have been suggested but none chosen. Up tothe" presentHiine there is no certainty as to any one man, or even any firob abiiity. Thecity convention tomorrow night will meet with an open mind. What Its choice will be I cannot say." Air. Norris did not say that it -would be a Quaker meeting waiting to be moved by the spirit, but his words had that sig nificance. '"And has it been decided whether the " delegation chosen to the National Con vention will be instructed or not?", he c was asked. "I cannoj say. "Nobody knows, Many of the prominent' Democrats of the Dis- trlc't. -including myself, favor an unin structed delegation, as we have sahl. But ' if it developb that sentiment at the city i convention is for instructions to the dele . gation undoubtedly instructions will be given." New for the facts. A conference of the " lcaderaof-4le.Corris faction will be held tonight, probably at the Metropolitan "" Hotelr though-the meeting place may be changed. Ir. Norris, J. Fred Kelley, John A. ClarkeraniPsTveral other supporters of Sir. Norris will be present. Plaus will bo discussed. A chairman and a secretary for """ the city convention tomorrow wi'.l be , agreed on. The delegates have been chosen, al- - though Mr. Norris is too modest to ac knowledge it. Four of the six will be: " James L. Norris. J. Fred Kelley, John A. Clarke, and "William Hart. Despite Mr. Norris protests of innocence it may be stated on excellent authority that it has been practically decided to in- struct the Morris delegates for Mr. Bryan and for the Bryan platform. This decision """ has been taken in self-defence r A Norris man said today regarding the question: "We realize that if our dcle- gation.goesJo.t.he National Conention un lustructed and another delegation goes " from-the District with rigid insliuctions for Mr. Bryan, there will be little chance of our" Cteing?eated." But even the decision to instruct the delegates does not wholly remove doubt - from the minds of the Norris people. They ; wonder if when they present themselves at the National Convention, virtuous through fear instead of thiough choice, they may not even then be cast out in favor of the --original Bryan delegation. - JHE BRYAN CONVENTION. 1 A ov Central Committee to He i;i-t-(-.l.
