July S.?The Xew York delegatlon thought to havo a meeting thls afternoon at 4 o'clock to talk can? didates. At tlie lnst moment. however, the conference was postponed until to morrow morniner at 10:30 o'clock. The actlon of thc New Yorkers Iti pefusing to joln wlth a wlil ln to-day's .demonstration in the convention for the Ccmmoner has glven the men of Xew Jersey. Mlnnesota, Georgia and other Stat?__jvho do not belleve in Bryan and Bryani-.ni. something Uke a glow of - encouraserocnt. On iho other hand, the great howling spectacle for Bryan to day has convinced most people of what ? they belleved all slong?that Bryan's nomlnatlon on the first ballot cannot be preventcd. As to Vlcc-Presldon.j.-. Tlie talk about a vice-presldential candidate has become a farcc. Alt_*iost anybody who wants thc job and who can get a delegatlon for hlm can have ? !t. There is still talk of Ollie James and John \Y. Kern, and jf tlie Xew Yorkers can ngrce upon a man, "why ti.ey can have the place. But the "JTew Yorkers contlnue to act and to talfc as if they do not care to be represonted on the tlcket. and the Connectlcut men are appeallng to the Xew "orkers to help out Senator Archlbald McNelll. But the vice.presidentlal situation has become lost ln the scuffle. It hns hoen subordinated to tlie dolngs of tlie committee on credentlals nnd the com? mittee on platform. Tho fights In those two commlttees, tho ull-nvght sesslons^th.e rjjpplng and pulling and snarilng }_ave lessened tho interest ln the v'Ice-pres.dent.ai nomlnatlon. The Martin Llttleton boom got -another boost thla afternoon. It was even said that Bryan wan ted hlm, but Bryan has sent word here In favor of so many vlce-presldentlal possibllitles that no more heerf is paid to tho mesaages . from Llncoln.

Tlio attl turo of the Democrats ln Congress Is to be Indorsed with reference to tho news prlnt paper tiuestlon. On the suDJ.et or' the navy Mr. Bryan cautions tlie commlttee to be careful not to indorse a "lurge navy.". An "adequate navy," he says, **ls as far aa We can go." He has no objectlon lo a plank lndorslng atate mllitias,' but prefers lt to be ln the language of Thomas Jefferson on that subject: "A well disciplined mllltla ts our best re eognized defense." lf a plank could be drawn on tho rights of the negro, that -would bo unanimously acceptable, Mr. Brynn would not object to lt, but he would* iiot waiit to force such a plank in the platform.

The injunction plank will be strong. and though posslbly not as drastlc as Gompers demands, it will probably satlsfy labor leaders, and servo to ralse tho cry of class leglslatlon. Thls plank is the danger which now con fronts the Democratic party. BBYAN EXPECTS TO UEMAIN AT FAIRVIEW LINCOLN. NEB., July 8.?No dramatlc dash Denverward for W.
