Bailey will be at the Fort Worth]
Bailey convention, and he will have
with him 8,000 to 10,000 loyal dem-(
ocrats, who believe that the people
should be supreme, and who are op
posed to legislators usurping the au

people." Yes, Bob, they will all be

Washington, Mar. 26. -Politicians
j attribute a hidden significance to the
visit of William Jennings Bryan in
j Washington today. The establish
i ment of Johnson headquarters here
i and In New York and in other east
! <·πι cities, and rumors of a plan to
i capture the eastern delegations to
'Denver lor the Minnesota man, have
caused some trepidation among the
Nebraskan's supporters in Washing
ton. Mr. Bryan will hold several im
! portant conferences with democrat
leaders in Washington today.
Tomorrow Mr. Bryan will invade
Pennsylvania, one of the strongholds
of the opposition to his candidacy,
speaking tomorrow evening in Pitts
; burg. Reports state that the members
! of the Pennsylvania Bryan League
have aranged an elaborate reception
for their chief, and that his appear
ance in the Smoky City will mark
the beginning of a determined cam
paign to contest the state delegation
in the interest of the Nebraskan.
From Pittsburg Mr. Bryan will go
to Parkersburg, W. Va., and thence
to Kansas City. Mo., where he will
be the guest of honor at one of the
greatest political banquets ever held
in the west, to be held Monday night
On Tuesday he will be in Lincoln
and will entertain the democrat and
populist editors of Nebraska at a
banquet. Later next week he will be
gin a western tour that will include
cities and towns in Kansas, Colo
rado. Nebraska and Iowa.
j While Mr. Bryan is engaged in
I swinging around the circle, liis op
i ponents in the east will be busily en
I gaged in manufacturing Johnson
j thunder, in the hope of preventing
i the Nebraskan's nominatlcn for the
presidency. The anti-Bryanites hope
to secure control of the delegations
from New York, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, Deleware and Massachusetts,
with possibly several others. In New
York, the Bryan opposition is head
ed by Mayor McClellan and Charles]
