It was stated In explanation that
the railroads desired to confine the

F. Dunlap and Judge Owen P. Thomp
Personal telegrams have been sent
to Mr. Bryan by some of his closest
personal followers telling him his in
terests could not have been protected
better than they were i the state
convention and that the delegates can
be expected to suppoit him at Denver
to the fullest extent he could ask.
They were the more convincwl of
this when they realized that Mr. Sul
livan merely by sitting still in his
chair could have prevented the adop
tion of a platform and the passing of
any Bryan Instructions. The situation
which made this possible was not of
his own creation but was the result
largely of Thompson and Dunlap,
working, as they thought, against
George Brennan, but in reality with
him for just what lie wanted to do.

Elmlra, N. Y., April . 25. An an
nouncement made here yesterday that
the vote of Senator' Cassidy against
the race track bill was due to a tele
gram from Congressman Fassett at
Washington, which had been tampered
with, caused a sensation.
Congressman Fassett, who Is here
to attend today's congressional con
vention, said ithat the story was true.
On the day the race track bills came
up in the senate Congressmen Fassett
and Dwight united in a telegram to
Senator Cassidy, which, it is stated,
when filed, read:
"John and I urge you to stand .by
the governor on the race track bill,
owing to conditions in your district.
"J. S. FASSETT."
Word -Sot" Inserted.
That telegram, when it reached
Cassidy, read as follows:
"John and I urge you not to stand
by the governor on the racetrack
bills." ' ' .. -
The next day, when it became
known in Washington that the gov
ernor had been beaten, another 'tele'
giam was sent to Cassidy as follows:
'John and I think you have made
serious if not fatal mistake. Get
busy, move to reconsider and pass tha
bill. J. S. FASSETT
Changed la Washington.
Mr. Fassett did not know until he
reached the state convention that the
telegram had been falsified. An in
vestigatlon was started, and it is said
it was found that the telegram had
been changed In Washington. Mr,
Fassett said he had a letter from the
manager ' of the telegraph company
office In that city admitting the forg
ery arid stating that the operator re
sponsible had been discharged.
Congressman Fassett says' the re'a
