When Mr. Cowan's name was called he said he was not ready to vote on the mat •ter.. \\^en the chauipiops of the or dlnJince saw that his failnr.-> to vot meant th«^ defeat of their measure they began to make inquiries as to whether a man c<nild not be made to vote.

"The city can iiialic and enftiic" gamblinp laws and get the fines from tbi-'m .Xhont all we will get out of this amii.semenr ordinance will be a big law stiit.

"Then again." said Mr. Cnwan. "the ministers earn the most of their' sal aries on Sunday." Later on in the (iisciissie;i Mr. Cowan in answer to a nuestion fntm th< mayor, said: "I am not ready to vote or the quest'«n.

VVlIllarti .1. Brjan will make a formal announcement as to his determination regarding the presidential nomination. His confidential friends have felt authorized to ni .Hkc this state ment and assign the reasons for it. Whether -Mr. Bryan will make his at- tiiu{le known through a letter to 'a supporter or through a public speech cannot be stated. On neither of the former occasions when he was jiominated for the presidency, did .Mr. Brvan make a formal announcement of his candidacy^ in 1904, he declared that he wmir ^not permit the use of his name !)efore the convention. .A.n entirely difrcrent condition confronts Mr. Bryan for the 1908 campaign. There arc jierhaps a dozen men In the deniocratic jtart) wlio would aggressively seek the deniocratic nomination if it were known that Bryan would not accept the nomination. .Most of these are sup porters of Hiyan who are unwilling to content with him and who would like to see him make the race again. Nominations Dejiend on Bryan. Several of these have frankly talked w-ith .Mr. ;ibout the situation. Governor .lohnson of .Minnesota has publicly declared himself. He thinks .Mr. Htjan will take fho nomination and under these-circi'imsianccs will liot permit his own name to be used. Should .Mr. Bryan decide not to run. the .Minnesota delegation will luesent the name of its governor. Senator Culbertson of Texas is another who will not permit the use ol his name before the convention should .Mr. Bryan indicate a willingness (o accept the nomianllon. It Is also asserted that I.,leutenant Governor Chanler of New York is unwilling to entei into a I'er.-^onal rf)ntest with .Mr. Bryan for the nomination. There are a number of liemocrats conspicuous In Vork politics who are forcing Chanler's name to the front and have even gone so far as to employ a press agetn to make a mighty disturbance, but desiiite all this. Bryan's friends de Clare that Chanler has no thought of actlvciy contesting with Mr. Bryan. In view of these facts, it is explained that Mr. Bryan believes he must speak out before the democrats seriously confront the question cf ^hoos ing a campaiv;n leader. Everything in democra'ic circles has been blocked for months. No progress can be m.ade n urging any candidate for the norain ation and it would he intolerable for the democrats to be compelled to start into an imjiortant session of congres.? without knowing whither they were drifting. Bryan Prolwbly Will Accept. It is believed, of course, that Mr. Bryan will announce his willingness to accept a nomination. Even this would place the party in a far better position than to have the leader.^ all at sea. If Mr. Bryan is to be the democratic candidate once more, he would of course be potent in determining congressional policies As the leader of the minority of (be house. .lohn Sharp Williams, who has never been friendly to Bry.m would feei that he must defer to the national leader in all matters where party politics were Involved. Mr. Williams could pursue no other itollcy and re- ;iln Ills position as house leader for he niinotity. liOCKTAIL PURSUES HIM VICE PBESIDENT FAIRBAXKS ET- EN AMONG PKESBYTEBU5S, .

Fairbanks by name as having been limed down for delegate to thfr Mieth-. odist general conference because hit had allowed cocktails to be served at dinner to President Ropsevelt Instead of the vice president's iiame adorning (he pages of the synodical nilniites. thattdistitigulshed, not to say- >Iongated, statesman will go down 111 jiistory arm in arm with "The Man U'ith the Iron Mask," and "The Olrl \rith the Auburn Hair," under the, vacuous des'gnation of "an oiBclAl n 'gh in the councils of his church and he nation." .' . It was all done during the debate m the report of the committee, on temperance, presented by Dr. C. B. Kircher of Maryville. This report spok3 In flowing terms of the prtv •.;ress being made by the cause of tem- •.lerancp, and after calling attentiiHi to vuriouS encouraging events which showed that the temperance cause was [trogressing. Dr. Kircher referred to the attitude of tbe church. ''One of the most encouraging "vcnt.s: in this connection of recent iccurri-nce." said the report, "wa» the icfusal of the Indiana Methodist;ct>n- fi rcnce to send as a^ delegate td the general conference at Baltimore. .Vice President Fairbanks for the reaaon that he allowed cocktails to be aerred i' a public dinner to President Boose* veil." ' . '• Name Finally Expnnnd. Dr. Kircher and H. P. Farls, of Clinton, stood out for the adoption of the report as rsad. while Dr. D. R. Kerr of Fulton, president of WTestmioater college, and Dr. Duncan Brown.^nd K. ij, .Mitchell, an attorney of Macon, op^posed the reference to the vice preai^ d?nt by nanie. They argued that the Presbyterian synod would be disconr- '< ous in commending the Methodlfta of another state for rebuking the vice president of the United States. TTje r?port was debated with anhnation for iome time, and after being laid on the table and resurrected, and hp«i ^g had various other pariiamenfary stunts done with B, the referen^ to the rics president was expunged, and he was designated only as a high at- (icial in the councils of church anil - nai;on. The report was adoptedrwlth his modification and tbe foUowinx •ecommendations were accepted by •he synod: F. est—-That the last Sunday in Oei- tober set aside as temperance Sundry in the Presbyterian chtirches of the Etate. Second—That (he attention of the church be called to the literature prepared by the tamperance board. Third—That Governor Folk be com- riencfed for his activity In the catue . o? temperance. Fourth—That one day of the "\V )tek I'f Prayor'^e set aside for tsmpeij^ atice services. Fifth—That the synod favors, a con- titudonal prohibitory amendmeift. .Mrs. L.
