Bryan Will Have Nothing to Do With Any Can?
didate Who Is Dependent On iYiurphy's
Delegation for Nomination.
Baltimore. Md.. Juno 30.?"I see no
reason why we should nut conclude the
convention to-morrow with the nomi?
nation of both s President and a
Vice-President." said W illiam J. Bryan
! late to-night. "The friends of thu
various candidates have fought out
their differences and, in their loyally
to the men of their choice, have con?
sumed more time than is usually dc
\cted to balloting. There is every rea?
son why tho progressives should get
together and Select a ticket."
Mr.-Bryan said he look It for grant?
ed that there was no chance for the
nomination of either Harmon, of Ohio,
or Underwood, of Alabama, whom he
designated as the choice of a reac?
tionary element In the party. He sug?
gested that If the convention could not
agree upon either Governor Wilson, of
New Jersey, or Speaker Clark, of Mis?
souri, an available matt to head tho
Pcket might be found In a list which
i lie furnished comprising the names of
Senator Kern, or Indiana; Senator-1
elect Ollle James, of Kentucky; Sena?
tor O'Gorman, of New York; Senator]
Culberson. of Texas, and Senator Ilnv-j
ner, of Maryland. Continuing Mr.,
Bryan said:
I "The antagonisms which have been'
aroused during the preliminary cam?
paign, antagonisms which ought not
tr. have been aroused, should not pre?
vent the coming together of delegates
upon some common ground.
"New York Is not necessary to a
nomination, and under the circum?
stances, should not be permitted, to dic?
tate the nomination. I do not mean
to say that the vote of New York
would vitiate a nomination if the can?
didate had. enough to nominate himj
without New York, for In that case the
pi rty would not be under obligations
16 Mr. Murphy for his nomination; but;
P Mr. Murphy furnishes the votes ne-|
cessary to carry the candidate across1
the line, the candidate i, ho accepts the
nomination under the circumstance:;
puts himself under obligations to Mr.1
Murphy and to the influences which
? speak through and control him. ami
I l contend that a candidate so oblig?
ed would r.ot appeal to the conrldon? o
of tho public and would not. if suc?
cessful at the election, be free to
nerve tho public with singleness of
Would Not Have Dared.
I "There is not an aspirant for the
I nomination who would have daicl tu
' no out before the people Of any State
land say "I have the. promise of f'has.
j F. Murphy that he will deliver to me
ninety votes which, under the unit
j rule, aro in his control as soon as I
I have enough more to give n\e tho
necosary two-thirds.'
"I believe, therefore, that nil are
justified In refusing support to any
candidate who desires the New York
support, and Justified In withdrawing
support, if. nfter glvlnt; it. New York
should seek to add enough votes to
give thn candidate tue nomination
"We have number o favullahel men
i from whom to make the selection: a
' number of them are participating In
I this convention, and some are . ar.d:
[datos before It. If either Mr. Clark or
Mr. Wilson will announce his willing?
ness to rely entirely upon the pro?
gressive vote anJ his determination
not to accept the nomination. If given
under conditions which would obligate
him tu Mr. Murphy, there is no rea?
son' why tll<9 convention should not
agree on one of these, if the feeling
that has been aroused between the
two leading candidates Is such that
the progressive forces cannot agree
upon either, It ought to be easy to
agree upon some third person who has
not been n candidate or is net handi?
capped by animosities engendered or
by an adverse verdict at the Demo?
cratic conventions and primaries. I
will not discuss the relative merits of
the candidates now before the con?
vention who can be counted as pro?
gressive, and I take It for granted
that there is now no possibility of the
nomination of the two candidates.
Governor Harmon and Mr. Underwood,
who were the choice of the reac?
tionaries. I do not mean to be un?
derstood as saying that all who favor
these two are reactionaries, but wher?
he and Judge Harmon had strength
outside of their own localities, the
support Is to he explained, as a rule,
I by the reactionary tendencies of the
1 supporters.
"We have several persons taking
! part In this convention who have not
been placed in nomination and who ate
entirely worthy of consideration. Pen
ator Kern, of Indiana, has already re?
ceived the support of nearly fi.SOO.Ono
Democrats for the vice-presidency, and
since that time he has not only been
elected to the United States Pern'.e, btt^

associates by the prominent part ho
