B. WALLER CLARK AND BRYAN, MEET, SHAKE HANDS BURY THE HATCHET Washington, April 19.—Speak er Champ Clark and Secretary of State William J. Bryan met at a private luncheon here Friday, shook hands and issued public statements declaring they had buried the hatcTiet and put the personalities of the Baltimore convention with the by gones. The luncheon was arranged by Theodore A. Bell of California, temporary chairman of the Den ver convention in 1908 and chair man of the California delegation supporting Speaker Clark at Baltimore and was given by Ira E, Bennett, editor of the Wash ington Post. By Wm. J. Bryan, Secretary of State. My meeting with Mr. Clark has served to clear up a mis understanding as to my exact position toward him at the Balti more convention. I have tried to make it clear to Mr. Clark that 1 have always regarded, and do now regard him, as a good, clean progressive Democrat. If my language at Baltimore created any impression that I was charg ing Mr. Clark with being in sym pathy with any of the reaction ary forces, I am glad of the op portunity to correct any such misconstruction of my words or, acts, for I did not intend to re flect upon either the personal or political integrity of the speaker. It is my earnest wish that there may be cordial co-operation be tween the state department and the speaker in carrying out the policies of the administration. By Champ Clark, Speaker of the House. It is beyond the power of Col. Bryan or anyone else to correct the injustice that was done to me at Baltimore. The loss of the presidental nomination was a small thing as compared to the injury done to my reputation in the eyes of the world. But now that Col. Bryan in his public state ment has done what he can to remove the injurious impressions that were created by his Balti more speeches, I feel that we all can better co-operate for the good of the administration. 1 can only repeat what I have publicly declared time land time again, that all personal or selfish considerations must give way to the duty that all Democrats owe to our party and to our country.

L. Moose is an opinion Monday afternoon knocked out the slot machine again. The mayor of Minturn with a watchful eye for revenue. inquired1 of the attorney general if the town could lincense slot machines which always give up liece of guru for each nickel in serted in the slot, and the person supplying the coin would have a chance to secure as high as $2 worth of merchandise in addition. The attorney general stated that if the machine handed only five cents worth of gum for each coin played it would not be a violation of the law. but the extra mer chandise made it a game of chance, and as such it could not be licensed by any town or city. . . ... -- - Save your combings of1 hair and have you a braid made.
