the Democratic convention in the Dis- b

control of his forces. To-day's- bolt,
while small in itself, is significant of e:
the fight at L-. Louis. Mr. Hearst will
have a strong following in the nation- iv
al convention, and if that following p
bolts it will mean a tuird ticket. Vr i>
Bryan is in sympathy with H o a r ' W
