WHY THE JOHNSON
BOOM COLLAPSED NEW YORK TELEGRAPH TELLS WHY SENTIMENT IS ON THE WANE. The New York Morning Telegraph tells why the Johnson boom has col lapsed and how it was done. W. G. Conrad was the cause of it and the Telegraph tells the story thus: "It is surmised that the falling off in Johnson sentiment is due largely to the lack of warmth shown in the movement by James J. Hill of Min nesota. Mr. Hill ceased to talk much interest in the Governor Johnson presidential aspirations as soon as he learned that W. G. Conrad, the Mon tana banker, miner and railroad own er, was Mr. Bryan's personal choice for the vice presidency. Mr. Conrad is a Virginian and went into the Northwest 40 years ago, when Mr. Hill started to open up that wilder ness. Mr. Conrad and Mr. Hill have been close business and personal friends during all these years. Both gentlemen have become multi-million aires by helping built up that section of the country, and they have con vinced Mr. Bryan that the way to win out is to adopt the policy of building up rather than tearing down. Mr. Conrad was seen at the Na tional Park bank before he started west yesterday. He said: " 'Mr. Bryan will be nominated be yond the shadow of a doubt. He al ready has more than enough dele gates pledged to him to control the convention. Business men generally are turning to Mr. Bryan, and I look upon his election as a sure thing.' "Mr. Conrad was asked if he was a candidate for vice president, and he replied very frankly that he was not a candidate in the sense of hunting for the place. " 'A number of my friends in the South and West,' said he, 'have ask ed me to be a candidate on the theory that it was about time the South had some representation upon the demo cratic ticket. I'm not going to do anything to get the nomination, but if it comes my way I'll be pleased to accept it. I consider it a great honor to run on the ticket with Colonel Bryan. He is one of the big men of this century.' "The bringing forward of Mr. Con rad's name at this time is a shrewd play on the part of Mr. Bryan. Mr. Conrad is the most popular figure in the Northwest. Worth anywhere from $25,000,000 to $40,000,000, he is as simple and democratic as Bryan himself. His personality pervades the whole northwestern country. When it becomes known that he is Mr. Bryan's personal choice for the second place on the ticket, the John son boom ■will collapse. It is neces sary for Wall street to understand these facts in order to thoroughly grasp the democratic situation. One thing'is certain: If Mr. Conrad is on the democratic ticket with Mr. Bryan the platform will be a conservative one. His name insures for the demo cratic party a conservative policy."
