Chicago August 9 Dally Chronicle
AVhen exGovernor Altgeld visits New
York September 1 to addres9 a mas3
meeting to be held under the direction of
the Chicago platform democracy he will
say many things that aro calculated to
widen tlio existing breach between tho
radicals and conservatives ot the dem
ocratic party
Among his followers in Chicago who aro
familiar with his ideas ot organization It Is
an open secret that whilo he will refrain
frqm specifically urging a division of tho
two controlling elements of the party he
will endeavor to make clear that that
courso is tho only ono whicn tbe radicals
can follow vvlth safety
Tho exgovernors speech will treat of
party organization and will cover a wldo
range of Ideas
Mr Bryan will not attend the New
York meeting Ho said last night that
his engagements in the West would pre
vent him from going thoro The No
braskan was seen at the union depot
where he spent several hours between the
arrival of a Burlington train from Iowa
and tho departuro of a Pennsylvania trfn
for Lako Winona Ind He deprecated all
stories about piesent or future differences
between democrats who agr > up in ho
principles contained in the CUtca o plat
Such stories he said are conceived
and circulated by persons who want to
make trouble and creato dissensions
Mr Bryan added also that inasmuch as
tho next democratic National convention
would reaffirm the Chicago platform and
add planks eoverlng the new Issues trusts
and Imperialism democrats who agreed
on these Issues would find no excuse for
not acting In harmony
Mr Altgeld declines to discuss the Ken
tucky situation since Mr Bryan publicly
declared his intention to visit the Blue
Gras3 State to make a aeries ot speeches
In behalf of Senator Goebel tho democratic
candidate for governor Mr Bryan said
last night that his letter to the Kentucky
committee which was published sovrral
weeks ago outlined his position In tne
Kentucky fight and that his subsequent
utterances did not vary from tho tet of
that document
I see by the newspapers be remarked
that tho silver congressmen of the State

from his office however aud accomplished mon of the party who wero identllied with

Tho slate for republican supervisors is mnjtjns speechta for Goebel

Altgold Is angry at Mr Bryan be
Their comments on the situation point
directly to tho conclusion that they be
lieve that a movement for a new party
which will embrace the radical element
will be quickly undor way and that un
less Us leaders aro permitted to dictate
the policies of the next convention they
will hold a convention of their own
Mr Bryan said last night In speaking
of the gossip about a possible party split
Nothing of the sort will happen so tar
as theso men who believe in the Chicago
platform are concerned On the contrary
there will be harmony and unity between

Arthur C Bentley ono time secrotary
ot tho democratic State committee was In
Chicago all day and In discussing tho po
litical outlook In the Slate saM Mayor
Hanlsons nomination for governor was a
foregone conclusion if Governor Tanner
was renominated by tho republicans
Down tho Stato the sentiment ot the
democrats Is almost unanimous for tho
mayor as the opponent of Tanner simply
because his record has boen distinctly
opposed to Tanners acts as governor
said Mr Bentley
Governor Tanner has notified several
Chicago friends that he will reach Chi
cago on his way to Springfield August 25
This news Is being circulated all over the
State and it is almost certain to bring
to tho city scores of leaders and Wow
era of the Tanner machine who have been
looking for an excuse to get together to
taiK about the aggressions of tho gov
