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.

The decision of the Executive Commit-
toe of the Bryan Democratic- Association

quarters, 1229 Pennsylvania Avenwe. The
