Bryan's Purpose to Control The Dem
ocratic National Convention.
Pickens Sentinel Journal.
It has been asserted that Mn Bry
r an and Mr. Hearst have combined
their forces and influences for the
control of the Democratic National
-Convention, and this announcement
basn't been contradicted. It seems
that the Bryan forces and the Hearst
delegates will work together. the

It has been clear-iy unc -mut.'u em.;
since Br. Bryan ret'red from Eu
rote that it was. his-purpose to leave
no means untried to control the Dem
ocratic National Corivention. He is
determined that the Kansas City plat
form shall be reaffirmed, not that he
thinks its reaffirmaiog is of such
great importance. buit he wishes to
show the party that he is still its
leader.. He believes that those who
are, against the reaffirmation of that
platform were not in hearty sympa

and he wants to make- them take a

Mr. Hearst is in a position to pick up
a great many delegates-when the time
comes for choosing the delegates to
the National Convention. He has an

it is doing an immense- amount of
-There is no other cindidate for the
nomination who has an organization.
Indeed, there is no one of thenm that
is an avowed candidate. Even Judge
Parker, who it is thought. will be the
choice of the New York delegation
for the nomination. hasn't intimated
even to his closest friends that he de
sires the nomination. 1: was thought

Club he would make a response of
some sort, but he didn't. He left New
York without so much as mentioning
the fact that his name had been con

Mr. Hearst is having no opposition
in his work of getting delegates for
himself. As soon as counties be
gin t) select delegates to the State
conventions-the conventions which
will choose delegates to the Demo
cratic National Convention-the ef

that are being received by members
of the Democratic National Commit
