tions for the members of the notifica
tion committee the members of the
national committee who will be in at
tendance and a number of specially In
vited guests
The notification speech and the ad
dress of acceptance by Mr Kern will
be brief in order to give ample time
for the delivery of the speech by Mr
Bryan on the subject of trusts which
of course will be the chief feature of
the program Mr Bryan is expected
to reach the city early tomorrow
morning from Chicago accompanied
by National Chairman Mack Both of
the distinguished leaders will be
