BRYAN IS LOSER BY
VOTE OF 579 TO 510
Defeat of Nebraskan Construed by
Some as Eliminating Him as Can-
didate for Nomination
CHAMP CLARK SUPPORTERS ME CONFIDENT
Vote of Missourian's Faction for Parker Considered
Distinct Bid for Conservative Vote in Convention
Much Talk of Coalition
By A hoc i ted Pra
Baltimore Md. Juue 25. William. Jennings Bryan met defeat
today at the hands of the Democratic National convention and it Is
the opinion of many party leader here that he has eliminated him-
self from the rae for the presiden tl tl noininuiion.
Former Judge Alton 11. Parker of New York was elected tem-
porary chairman over Bryan the v ote being ."79 to 510. and the de-
feat of the Nebraskan is interpreted in many ways.
CLAUKITES CLAIM NOMINATION.
Champ Clark's friends openly claim the nomination and many
of the attendants at the convention believe that it will be Speaker
Clark or a dark borne that will oe named.
It is talked here alBo that Bryan is not crushed by any meaus
and some of his friends adhere to the statement that the defoat for
temporary chairmanship Is not a test of his strength in the tonvtn-
' tion. Some of bis more ardent friends wer forced to vote against
htm on account of circumstances for temporary chairman.
Claims are made that the vote given Bryan Indicates that be
holds the "veto power" In the rcnventlon whleh plnees hlni in a
position of dominance as to who Khali be the nominee.
Many of the Clark delegates openly threw their support with the
anti-Bryan faction which U regarded as opening the breach between
Clark and Bryan which is liable to cauHe the Bryan supporters to
make a bitter fight on Clark.
Many consider the vote of the Clark adherents for Judge Parker
as a distinct bid for the conservative element tn the convention.
Straight out Wilson delegates today throw their solid support to
Bryan and the leaders figure that this will make the conservative
element choose Clark in preference to Wilson as a progressive can-
didate. Report Is current tonight that New York with ninety Votes as
a controlling factor in the situation will go for Clark. This re-
port is based on the action of New York today voting against Bryan.
The fact that the Missouri delegation gave Parker a majority
of Its vote called out reports f the coalition between New York
and Missouri and naturally led to talk of Clark as the nominee and
a New York man. probably Senator O'Coriuan for vice president.
l'NIKI(OOl IN MlMIHNF?
There is talk also that the Underwood force will come into the
combination as Cnderwood will get the speakership In the event of
Senator-elect James ot Kentucky is discussed as the probable
permanent chairman of the convention.
Those arguing against the possibility of Bryan being named de-
clared that his say in the convention today failed to stampede It.
Bryan today declared that the sinister influences which hal
been worked at the Republican convention in Chicago were operat-
ing even more brazenly In Baltimore'.
Bryau was clearly under stress as he made a plea for the con-
vention to turn down Wall Street Interests which he declared were
represented in the selection ot Judge Parkei. Bryan advocated
John W. Kern of Indiana as chairman. Kern then took the platform
and declared after asking Parker U withdraw that Bryan is the only
person fitted to bear the brunt for the people. Parker's friend
thereupon declared that he had no right to withdraw.
Bryan said tonight: "The vote of the convention shows the attitude
of the convention and my speech ahowa my views on the subject
and I do not know anything that needs to be added."
iTLIlKltSON IS PROBABILITY.
Bryan failed to say whether he will carry the fight on the
..aor for the progressives. The addition of Senator-elect James Seu-
ator Culberson of Texas and Senator Kern to the mentioned list of
possibilities for permanent chairmen created discussion.
The various committees afte r being forced Into a night session
by a vote of the convention to O. K. the matter Into their own hands
and derided that more can be accomplished after cessation. This
being determined adjournment was announced until 10 o clo k to-
