Jan. 8—When the Democratic .National Committee went into session here this afternoon, William ..'enning-s Bryan at once became' the torni center in an attempt to have l.iiiies AI. Oiiffey, of Pennsylvania, ;';:rown off the committee. The committee set 3 o'clock as .the in;? for hearing the representatfyes if ti:e various cities bidding for the •i<nvcntion. As this time approached /".aiUmore's chances seemed* increasing, it was said the supporters of -:ov. Woodrow Wilson were throwing heir strength to Baltimore. Gov. Wilson reached the city today. When Bryan, holding a Nebraska proxy, reached the committee room, 'le was greeted with applause.. Each 'inie he moved froiu one seat to an- ^fber *o greet a triend the applause ' c,is rerowed. .No other member of the comtuittee was given a demon-^" stration. Although there are "booms" in town "or all of the avowed presidential can- iidates. u'embors of the committee •eoired reticent in discussing the slt- lation. There seemed to be an opinion that the Democrats might well ifford to wait until after the Republi- ans l.ave made their nomination at • '^hlncago. It was argued that if Taft vere re nominated, it might be exped- ert for the Democrats to choose an 'lut-and-oiit progressive. If Col. Theolor" llooseveit were nominated, it was aid that it might be good Democratic policy to name a "more con- vaMve" man than the former pres- dent. fuiiiiedf.iietv after bis arrival today lovernor Wi!-on set about to prepare stateiuent e-iplaining the alleged ,'etter be wrote to A.
