League America returned here from
Chicago last night and secured rooms
at the Lindell hotel during the coming
conference of Senator Stewart of Ne
vada Congressman Newland William
P Sit John of New York and others
He was asked the bimetallic national
convention would endorse Bryans nom
ination and said
As one of the officers of the Bimetal
lie League I dont think it would be al
together proper for me to undertake to
forecast what it will do I know how
ever that Mr Bryan is a great favorite
with many men prominent in the
i L K Taylor of Paducah Ky mem
ber of the Populist national committee
and editor of the Paducah Herald was
here to engage quarters for the Ken
tucky delegations and 300 visitors to
the national convention When ques
tioned a to the Kentucky Populists
choice for president he said
1 cannot say further than they did
want Teller and hoped that the Chi
cago convention would nominate him
cgo cnventon
so they could have endorsed him
Will the Populists erttiorse Bryan
when they meet here next week he
was asked
They may but I doubt it because
we have got to maintain our party or
ganization We may nominate Teller
and agree to divide our electoral ticket
on the basis that the strongest man
win after the general resul is know
This is l feasible and after ail it looks
as ifit would be but the endorsement
of Bryan for he would most likely be
the beneficiary

About the only question that seems
to Interest delegates to the Populist

Bryan will be Tat wit instructions
Bryan will carry through the conven
tion by a vote of at least three to one t
there seems to be no doubt and i Is
believed by the most enthusiastic Bry I
an unanimous supporters that i will be practically I I
Almost all of the conventions held I I
Saturday says a Populism who is
high i in the councils of his party de
clared for Bryan while the delegates
of counties which held conventions be
fore the Chicago nominations seem
largely itf favor of Bryan Instructions
But few delegates arrived today 1 I
and the evening trains added but few
others In all there were not over 200

Be a Struggle
ST LOUIS July HThe rush of
politicians to attend the Populist and
j Silver national conventions has not yet
set in although a few leaders have
arrived Chairman Taubeneck and
SergeantatArms McDowell of the
Populiat national committee predict
one of the largest crowds that ever at
tended a convention
Many of the best men in the party
will be here said Chairman Taube
neck Tlere will be 1350 delegates
representing over two million voters
We have every reason to believe that
In point of numbers attending it will
far outrank the Republican conven
tion We shall meet in the same build
ing which will afford an opportunity
to observe the strong points of differ
S3rgeantatArms McDowell an
nounced today that the trunk commis
sion with headquarters in New York
had telegraphed him granting one
fare for the round trip to start on the
20th only and to start on the return
trip on the 26th and reach the final
destination not later than tha 28th
i As the Populists begin to gather it
is evident that there
made which will form the chief con
tention of the convention One is that
the Populists shall abandon any Idea
of TL separate and distinct national
ticket and endorse outright the candi
date and platform of the Chicago con
I This proposition will be supported by
the friends of Henry M Teller nearly
all the Populist membars of the United
States senate and the Peoples party
leaders in many of the western states
The west and southwest and the
I northwest
for the proposition indorse Mr
Bryan and put upiio 6th6r ticket i
From the south come delegates and
I Peoples party leaders who are not del
egates to the convention urging an
i other proposition put up a presi
dential ticket to adopt a platform to
i run presidential electors in all the
I states where the Peoples party has
an organization and then when the
time comes to cast the votes in the
electoral college let the Populists and
Democrats combine on the strongest
I man whether that be Bryan or the
I Populist nominee
I Vigorous objection is uffged against
I this on the ground that it would be
dangerous to the common cause of
free silver I would divide the
1 strength of Its adherents and in some
of the close states where one or the
i other holds the balance of power a
division of their strength might give
the state to McKinley The conven
i tion of
1 which convenes in this city on July
122 at the Exposition building will vie in
numbers with that of the Populists
I which meets the same day
The National Silver convention will
have 1200 delegates and as many alter
nates coming from every state in he
Union the representation being based
I on the estimated strength of the advo
cates of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1
irrespective of former party affiliations
The call for this convention ema
nated from a conference of the friends
I of silver held at Washington D C
January 22 and 23 last and was signed
by A J Warner president of the

Dr J J Mott of North Carolina
who was elected chairman of the ex
ecutive committee has been in the
city several weeks making prepara

convention is going to be a representa
I tive one both in numbers and per
I is understood that William P S1
I John of New York who a few days
ago was forced to retire from the
presidency of the Mercantile bank of
New York on account of his advo
cacy of silver will be the chairman of
the convention and that either Sena
tor Stewart of Nevada or Congressman
Newlands Nevada will be the chair
man of the committee on resolutions
I Dr Mott stated he thought the con
vention would be In session at least
two days He said today that while
I there was a quasiunderstanding between
I teen his party and the Populists In
behalf of the interests of silver there
was as yet no agreement or dsflnite
movement in the direction of unity of
action as regards the presidential
ticket to be voted for next November
He declined to discuss this question

Election of McKiiiley Would Mean
a Bloody Revolution in the Near
ner secretary of the national com
mittee of the Peoples party has issued
the following statement
The result of the late national
Democratic convention is undoubtedly
the triumph of Populism A large
portion of the voters in the Populist
party in the south and west were
originally Democrats and left the old
party because it was dominated in
1 every convention by the eastern Demo
I crats who represented Wall street and
the monopolists of New York and New
I England I became quite evident to
every thinking man that as New York
was allowed to make the platform and
name the candidate of the Democratic
party the
would have no show and that their
rights and wishes would always be
I Believing this the thinking men
among the rank and file determined to
quit the old party and organize a new
I party Hence the existence of the
Populist party
I The Democratic party has purged
I itself reorganized Itself and come out
j for true democracy and to all intents
I and purposes substituted the Populist
platform for the old platforms that
I the party ha been using for years and
I which were dictated and foisted upon
the people by the goldbugs of the east
I Mr Bryan the nominee of that conven
tion is a man who fits the platform
I have personally watched his course
for a number of years and know that
his every impulse has been against the
and in behalf of the great masses For
more than two years he has acted
with the Populists of his own state
I It can not be successfully denied that
the principles advocated by the Popu
list party have captured the Democratic
I party and have driven out of its ranks
that element which has always been
opposed to true democracy and which
I from the beginning has been affihaved
with the Republican party as its nat
I ural home
All Populists In these United States
I should reQoice that their s
have taken such a hold upon the Amer
ican pople that one of the great politi
cal parties of the nation has been com
I pelled to adopt those principles and
nominate a ticket pledged to carry them
I into execution
I the Populists think more of their
I principles than they do of mere party
organization they will be
with the forces going in the same direc
I ton and thereby rescue our country
1 from all the dire calamities which we
1 have predicted would befall it should
the gold standard be permanently fast
ened upon us
I 1 I As secretary of the national com
I I niittee of the Peoples party for the last
f I four years I have labored in season
1 and out of season for the uplifting of
our party i love the associations
t which I have found In its ranks but
while these are dear to me the princi
ples of the Populist party are much
dearer I feel that I would be one
of the worst enemies of the Peoples
t party and of Its principles should I not
1 take the step at this time that I be
L lleve vwiil culminate in the complete
istriumph of every demand made by
rt I i party We have advocated
j in order that we might bring About
the necessary financial reforms Now I
I we have a chance of bringing all our
hopes and desires to a grind consum
I maiion
I 1 The truth of it is that the only
I point we new have to decide fs whether f r
f or not they will take Mr Bryan whom
I every goldbug in the country has de
nounced as a Populist for our next
president of the United States or
whether they will take Mr McKInley I l
who represents everything the Populists I
have denounced and J
denounce and just the opposite
of everything they have
or advocated
since they have been a party I
Looking at it from pHs standpoint
I fel thatin > the election of Mr Bry
an Populism has triumphed ands whl
I say Populism I mean the great com
mon people of the United States the
masses have triumphed against the
classes and should Mr McKinley be
I elected the classes have triumphed
the English gold standard has been per
manently fastened upon the lines of
industry in this country and there
will be nothing left for us but serfdom
that will undoubtedly bring on a bloody
I revolution in the near future

SALEM I July 14It has ben
arranged for Bryan to drive this after
noon to Centralla southwest of here
where demonstrations will be given to
night It Is Bryans wish to remain
quiet today but the people of Centralia
made arrangements for a display In his
honor and he finally consented to go A
big demonstration will be held here
tomorrow and tomorrow night
The citizens of Salem have been in
a state of activity all day In prepara
tion for the grand demonstration to
be given tomorrow Every tree on
every street and in every yard Is
being whitewashed in response to a
proclamation Issued by the mayor of
the city which was pasted on all the
dead walls of the town and circulated
the residents The
among reidents proclama
tion bears the likeness of Mr Bryan
at the head and reads as follows
Whereas Hon William J Bryan
Wilam Brya a
former resident of this city has been
nominated for the presidency of the
United States and
Whereas He is about to return
here for a short visit to his relatives
and friends
Therefore I John Lakin Mayor of
the city of Salem do most respectfully
request that all business houses and
residences be suitable decorated In his
honor during his stay in our mIdst
When Mr Bryan had finished his
dinner he took his children and went
down to
and had hiT photograph taken He
then returned to the home of his aunt
where he remained until train time
The taking of his photograph caused
considerable excitement In Salem
exciement and r
men and women gathered about to
watch the proceedings When It was
over they all shook hands with Mr
Bryan and some of the old men took
occasion to tell him how they had t
watched him from his youth up and
how they always did believe he was i
bound to be great Every day one i
hears amusing stories of Judge Bryan
Mr Bryans father The judge appears t
to have been a vigorous old fellow
and in many ways rather eccentric
According to Colonel T E Merritt
who is a brother of General Wesley
Merrit United States armyJudge
Bryan was dangerously ill shortly af
ter reaching Illinois and at that time
made a vow that i the Lord would
spare his life he would 1
and thanksgiving to him three times a
day as long as he lived and the judge
kept his word 1
Said Colonel Merritt I have seen J
him many and many a time when a
case in court was being argued before i
him take out his watch at noon stop
the proceedings get down on his knees
before the bench and offer up the
prayer in silence I became so com
mon that we never thought anything <
of i but I used to be the cause of
some comment among strangers when
they would happen to be in the court
room j
The judge was twice a member of
the Illinois senate and once a member
of the state constitutional convention
He was twice nominated for congress
and could have been elected but he
would not allow the use of a single
cent for campaign purposes W J
Bryan the presidential candidate ha
many of his fathers characteristics i
from n religious point of view Every
time he comes to
he attends services at the Presbytrian
church where the Rev Dr Sprowts
has been pastor for a score of years J
or more Last Sunday his old pastor
announced to the congregation that he
had taken it upon himself to send a
telegram in the name of the congre
gation congratulating their fellow
brother in Christ upon the honor he
had received He then pronounced a
few words of praise and commenda
tion upon the character of Mr Bryan
briefly reviewing his career from the
time he left Salem until die was nom
inated for president

CENTRALIA IlL July HFor some
reason the ovation that was to have been
given to William J Bryan tonight was
almost failure Scarcely SCO people all
told were at the station when the train
pulled In bearing Mr Bryan a his wife
A club of Democratic voters arrived from
Nashville with a band about 73Q and a
few minutes later one came in from Fair
field but they added scarcely 200 people j
to the crowd To make matters worse
the place selected for Mr Bryan to meet
the crowd was at the city pk which
had already been engaged by William E
Mason a Republican candidate for the
United States senate from this state On
this account Mr Bryan and his friends
had to vacate before 8 oclock The big
majority of the crowd that came to the
park appeared to be Republicans who had
expected to listen to Mr Masons talk
There were frequent cheers fa McKInley
and then the friends of Democracy would
shout for Bryan Altgeld and frea
