FEELER Sttrailaa Suggested as Compromise Candidate. HI SPRING IN ILLINOIS Appeal Issued by Close Friend of «Peeriess One" and Apparently With Approval of Committeeman Sulll- Wn_Decl«red to Be the "Only Dem- wrjt Who Can Defeat Roosevelt." Chicago. April tr,.-William Jennings jrvan will be presented to the Demo pits of Illinois as a •'compromise" 'aididate for the Democratic presi llntial nomination by Edgar L. Mas j^s a law associate of Clarence Dar- Jpff. The boom for Mr. Bryan, which will pout to the Democrats as a "feeler," jin the form of an article entitled: If Roosevelt, Why Not Bryan?" and til! be published in the Chicago Dem otic Bulletin, a political organ rtited by John P. Tansey, one of Roger Sullivan's chief lieutenants. Df-uwcratic politicians who heard of the forthcoming Masters letter were inxicus to learn the reception the sug pstion thai Bryan once more become the Democratic standard bearer would receive. The fact that the "feeler" i?sued practically under the aus pices of Roger Sullivan, national com- Eiitfcman for Illinois, is another mat ter of importance. Sullivan Opposed to Clark. Although Sullivan at the convention »t Peoria agreed to abide by the re mit of the presidential primary ht has taken no determined stand on way or another on the presidential proposition, except to be against Champ Clark, because Clark is being put forth as the Hearst candidate. Masters is a close friend of Bryan and during Bryan's recent visits to Chicago has been in several confer ence? with him. Whether Masters is issuing his letter after an understand-, ing with the Nebraskan, Masters r« feted to say. "If Roosevelt is to be the Republic an candidate," says the letter, "Bryan at once becomes the logical Democratic candidate. The fact that he has been three times defeated is of no signifi cance whatever. He is the only man with whom we can hope to beat Roosevelt and the signs multiply every day that Roosevelt is the man w» tn't»» heat."

Later Commissioner Neill or Judge Knapp will confer with the engineers.
