Bryan arrived here last night. One of the first results was a marked increase in the : strength of the movement to make Senator Walsh, of Mon ) tana, chairman of the resolu tions committee, instead of Senator Tarter Glass, of Vir jginia, President Wilson's choice. I Bryan said today he expected t* ; he the Nebraska member of the H'SO lutions commute* which frames tba platform, and It follow* that he will i make a vigorous flsht to prevent !'SUiss Retting the chairmanship, will j battle for a dry plank and will op | rwe a I/»cut of Nations plank , modeled on the Virginia state plat form. which Wilson wants. HATh DRY PI-ANK TO IWI IN PUITTORM •*I have no dry plank drawn, bat i I expect a dry plank to go into th« platform." Bryan wid today. "I | cannot nay whether the dry issue will go to the floor of the conven : 'lon I expect the majority of tIM i resolutions commit tee to be dry. Tba wets will take ft before the conven tion. if it is taken to the floor." In this connection. It was learned today that wet advocates who have looked over the convention person nel, claim that 587 delegates are wet. They plan to get a minority resolutions committee report favor ing a light wine and beer plank, onto the floor and argue It exten sively. making a strong fight for Its adoption. "l.iKht wine and bwr Is a sham Issue," Rrvan continued. "A straight whisky issue would be stronger." He cited results of previous wet and dry elections to show that light wine and beer had been heuvify 1 voted down when their restoration ; in prohibition communities was at. tempted. Bryan now is in control of the N»- bra.ika delegation. claiming 11 of Ita 16 votes and while he would not talk on the subject. It la expected he will he elected chairman of the deten tion. That will put him in the porsi il.iTi where he will poll the dicta tion's vote on c&ih ballot, and an nounce it. I Kl.l s STRONG STAND \tiAINST PROFITEKRS "I have no plans whatever,™ ha asserted. "Of course lt"a a safe as sumption that I'm likely to meet democrats from time to time." With retard to profiteering and the possibility of a plank pledging the party to support It, Bryan said he "took It for granted" there woult tie a "strong plunk on that subject." He Raid ho intended to work for a strong platform, on* that would appeal to the country, and for a ticket that would win. Hr would not discuss the various candidates ax ho said the platform would have a bear ing on what candidates would be se lected. indicating it should be dis posed of first. The Commoner traveled with the Nebraska delegation and got his first welcome to California at Sacramento, where a crqwd had gathered. Hryan looked rather tired. He wore the familiar black alpaca and a high crowned straw hat with a wide black band. s • • Indi&nans Seeking Easier Dry Measure INDIANAPOLIS. June The Indiana branch of the National Per sonal Liberty league today sent tele prams to President Wilson and Thomas Taggart. the democratic senatorial nominee, voting a demo cratic platform declaration for modi fication of the Volstead prohibition law. The telegrams rlaimed a member ship in Indianapolis of 10.000, saying a Statewide campaign for members had not yet been inaugurated.
