Democrat* Divided Over the Question of Declaring for 10 to 1. KANSAS CITY, July 2.—The topic uppermost in the minds of the Democ racy seems to be whether or not there ehall be a specific declaration in the platform for silver coinage at It} to 1, or whether a simple reaffirmation of the ptatform adopted at Chicago shall be sufficient. It is believed that much de pends upon Mr. Eryan's wishes in the matter, but even he may not be able to influence the action of the convention if it is deemed a wise policy to adopt the same plan that has been followed in several Western states and not spe cifically mention 1*5 to 1. Tne ratio declaration and the three words "16 to 1"' are likely to be the stumbling block in what might be a harmonious gathering. Advocates of lfj to 1 say that to omit the declaration would be "trimming-' and the party cannot af ford to do any trimming in view of the advanced stand taken four years ago after a bitter and intense struggle. Those who are content with a reaffir mation of the Chicago platform or who are earnestly seeking a modification of that document say that the Demo crats want to win and that the most earnest silver men ought to be satisfied with Bryan as the candidate even if there is not a specific declaration in the platform in favor of silver with the words 16 to 1 included.

I have never been a candidate for the vice presidency in the sense of seeking support fjr the nomination. But I want it understood that in no way will I allow my personal ambitious to stand in tho way of the cause for which we we all contending." WILL DO ALL HE CAN'.
