0 BE NO SPLIT IN THE i
PARTY, SAYS'W. J. B. furs Program for Democrats to Se cure Immediate Ratification; Suggests a Conference. Chicago, Jan. 10.—William Jennings j •yan, denying that there is any j plit” in the Democratic party, came Chicago today and offered a con st® program tor the Democrats to rsue in securing immediate ratifica n of the treaty of peace, Speaking before the Iroquois Club • two hours Mr. Bryan presented ns program as the sequence of the luggestion that he made in his Wash ington Jackson Day speech: j The steps he proposes follow': 1. Direct invitation, presumably rom the president or from responsi ile Democratic senators, to the Re publican senators to sit in at a con erence, open to the press, where con cessions could be considered from wth sides and a system of reserva ions agreed to whereby the treaty ould seicure a substantially unanim ous vote in, the Senate. 2. Failing in securing a compro lise, the Democrats to serve notice hut the Republicans must proceed vith their program of reservations dopted by the Foreign Affairs Com nittee; that the Democrats would withdraw a sufficient number of otes from the Senate, so that the ex iting Republican majority now com litted to ratification would be con erted into the constitutional two lirds majority required for ratifica jn; ipeace thereby would be estab shed and ratification thereby would ot become the paramount issue of the 120 campaign nor would peace be de I.yed for 14 months. So Difference in Purpose. “The president and! I only differ in ettaod and not In purpose,” Mr, ryan said. “There is less reason to ilk about a split here than in any ther conceivable case. I am an Amer «n citizen and 1 yield to no other merican in my interest in my coun t's welfare. I am a Democrat and yield to no other Democrat, not ven to the 'president of the United tates. in my interest in my party’s ■elfare. I take no orders from the esident or from any other man as to nat I shall do and I do not rely on j mors conferred upon me by my par to bind my conduct. “But when I get through, the Re iblicans and those who are anxious , believe that there is a Democratic ,lit will find nothing in my actions ■ speech hostile to my party’s wel re. "The president’s letter, read at ashington, contains words open to nstruction that indicate to me that .mpromise is possible. The president Itf well at Paris. He did more there an we could expect any man to do. B has not been free to consent to anges. I stood behind him in de manding ratification without reserva ans until we failed, Now the major i must rule. ; “The constitution gives the Senate ; V. right to ratify upon its own, •rms. We are in the minority and we - ust now acsuiesce with the majority. : is abhorrent that ratification must te declared for 14 months.” ■ . - ft-—-- ' IKE CLOTHES WE CLEAN, HtESS AND REPAIR REPRE SENT PAINSTAKING EFFORT r m Not a Suit.
