HEADQUARTERS ARE NAMED
Alabama Delegation to Join With the
Commercial Travelers’ League In
Welcoming Mr. Bryan From
His Trip Around World.
The Bryan club of Birmingham, which
’has been an active organization since
!Si*6, held a meeting yesterday In tlie First
National Bank building for the purpose
of making arrangements for attending the
Bryan reception at Madison Secure Gar
den, New York, on August 30. The follow
ing letter was read by John W. Tomlin
son from William Huge, the president of
the Commercial Travelers’ Anti-Trust
league of New York, under whose aus
pices the reception is to be given:
“Way back in January 1 received a
number of letters from the 'boys on the
road.' asking me why the Commercial
Travelers' Anti-Trust league did not ar
range a reception to the Hon. William J.
Bryan upon his return to New York after
a trip around tlie world. In obedience to
these requests, Mr. Henry Walker and I
wrote to Mr. Bryan, and he accepted the
Invitation of the Commercial Travelers’
Anti-Trust league. Mr. Bryan in his let
ter said that he was anti-trust, and also.
j considerable of a traveler, and that he
would be pleased to attend a reception.
We also suggested something about a ban
quet, but Mr. Bryan thought about the
trouble there is in having a banquet, and
that it is always to a certain extent ex
“There 'have been a great many mis
statements* in the press regarding the
management of this proposed reception,
and 1 can but reiterate the statement sent
out through the Associated Press on be
half of the league. It says:
“ ‘The league is incorporated under the
laws of New York, and Its membership is
made up of traveling men from all part*
of the country. It was very active in the
campaign of 1900, and Mr. Bryan under
stands all about the organization und its
membership and aJms. Mr. Bryan has ac
cepted an invitation of the organization to
give him a reception on Ills arrival here
in Madison Square Garden. It was under
stood in accepting the invitation that all
of Mr. Bryan's old friends would be in
vited to participate. In his letter to us
Mr. Bryan so requested.
“ ‘A large portion of our membership is
in St. Louis and Kansas City. As a com
pliment to them. Governor Folk of Mis
souri has been selected as chairman of
the reception committee. A majority of
our members desire that Augustus Thom
as make the speech of welcome on behalf
I of the league.’
“In order to have t'he matter of the re
ception as broad as possible. I have, on
behalf of the organization, invited a num
ber of prominent citizens in this and other
states to co-operate with us."
It was unanimously decided at yester
day’s meeting that the club would at- i
tend the reception to Mr. Bryan, and that
the headquarters of the club would be at
the Hoffman house, and all democrats of
the state who could do so were extended
an Invitation to attend. The following
arrangement committee was appointed:
John W. Tomlinson. John C. Pugh, Sam
