It is settled, apparently that the convention will nominate, nu indor.se, Bryiin. Wliiln the result o Sunday night's conference has had th effect of- discouraging Chairman Tau beneck, "Cyclone" Davis, Sergeant-At Arms McDowell and other opponents o the proposition to nominate or indors Bryan by the populist convention, thej have not wholly given up the fight They find comfort, in the declaration o Secretary MeParlin, of the New Tor] populist committee, that, the New Yorl delegates will not fuse with the dem ccrats nor.- support Bryan. "Tli'j pop uilsts won't be a tail to any democrat! kite." They are also encouraged by th situation in Iowa, where, notwit.hstand ing Gen. .Weaver's position, the delega tion-is divided upon the question ot in dorsing Bryan or making an inde pendent nomination. This fa'c' was something in the nature of a discovery for it ha-d been conceded nil nlong thai the. -northwest would solidly support the demand for Bryan's indorsement. . Ko*olutlon Favoring liry'nn.

Therefore,, without surrendering any of our principles and for tha purpose of defeating- the money powrjr, wo. believe it to bo the duty of every patriotic citizen to subordinate every consideration for the tlms being- and support William J. Bryan." - The members of the. conference, however, were reported to be nearer together when it broke . up early Monday morning than they had, -been. In support of the pledge.mnde by Sen- rtor Jones to the populists Sunday nig-ht.thut, Mr. TSryan., if: elected president, would fairly treat nil who supported him for election, nnd that the popnlista would not-be considered "dependent stepchildren,", the following letter written by the democratic candidate to a friend in the east. has been printed here: A Bryan Letter. ' "Yon may quote mo as-saying in reRarfl to the relation ot a president to his party: Thfl president, like any other public officer, la a public servant, and It his duty to carry out the principles laid down In the platform upon which he was elected and tauyht by the party of which he was a member. ; "The president is not selected as a school-' teacher, to instruct -his 'party, -nor la he chosen because .those ..who choose him are not able to think for themselves.

The njuch' discussed electoral plan came up, and It. wn.s fltir.ided .that if JITI v wn.v wns rm«n the populists would secure second place on the ticket if Bryan w:us indorsed for president. Coincident, with 'the two conventions is a mi-oting of the direct, legislative jConfevence t-o be held 'J'ties<lay. It is not u populist organixat-ion, despite the .conjunction of the bodies. Says Klt.weed JTomeroy, secretary: "\Ve are not here ,Ho form a new party, or in any way conflict with existing- parties. Many of our people -.iriv populists, but. we also •have in our ranks men of nil parties. The call for ibis emiferenee was issued .-on April ], a;id the first four names /signed to it are those of members of •the populist national committee, but ;there are 10,000 more names appended Svhich embrace, people, of all parties, or of no party. : .

Senator Jones, of A.rka n.sas. t he chair- I mnn of the democratic national eoiumit- tec, is si ill in town! The date of his departure is uncertain. If is evident, however, thai, he will not. leave Tuesday and possibly ' not until the populist eonmitiuu eom'pletes its work. Senator Stewart, of Xcvada, wln-n asked .Monday morning a.s to Jones' purposes, replied .significantly: "JTe'll stay here- us long as there's any- Ill ing f'or him to do." Although the Bryan propaganda is receiving (be support of many of the populist leaders, the real work of advancing his interests lias been intrusted to . Senator-Jones, of Arkansas, the chairman of the national democratic convention. 1 1 mil si: be said for Jones thai he is fnyini'Cfinp' the Bryan boon: skillfully, and it isiu-nc the less skillful because the Arkansas senator chooses to remain quietly in the background. He has his headcpiarters at the Planters' hotel, where he received certain of the more prominent populists who desire Bryan's nominal-ion'oy their convention. .Jouet' Proposition. The proposition which Jones advances is this: In return for populist and silver republicans' support, one member oC each party will be placed on the democratic nationa executive committee. In states where th populiHts (rreat ly outnumber the demo crats, the populists are to control the nomi nations for conprens and the principal stat offices. In .otjher states where the strcngt q(- .the .two fcrVUii Ja jnore,.uniform > ,a ftatja .factory arrangement will be made- with re spect to the state and congressional tick ets, the purpose In each cose beinfe to se euro the election of free silver representa tlvea in the house. Solioui,! lfln<U Filvor. • The scheme finds great favor with such of the populists as Jones has con suited, the argument of the latter being that if Brya-n is not nominated, half o the populists in the west, especially will vote for him and that the effect o this will be to disrupt the party. It may be stated in this connection ;that Jones insists strenuously that no only shall Bryan be nominated, bu .Sewall, n.s well. 'At Sunday night's con .fefe'nce lie insisted that these condi tions should be rigidly adhered to, and he flatly refused to entertain any propo sition t'hat looked only to the nomina lion of Bryan and the repudiation o: The democratic nominee for the seconc place on' the ticket. While the friends of JJrynn botl within and outside the populist rank! are not discou'rnged. at their failure to bring softie' 6f the'populist leaders Intc line for their candidate, they are manifestly surprised at the stubbornness with which Ta-ubeneck, Donnelly and others oppose Che suggestion of making him the nominee of the populist, conven tion. They b'elie'ya that the convention will at least indorse him if it does not nominate him, but they retili/c that this; cun be accomplished only by well-di reeled and determined effort. Dnrk HlntH Aliout I|cpul)Ilc»n». There were stories in circulation MOIV dnj- that republican money is bein.q used to preventBrynn's nomination, a.n<: dark hints are -thrown out to account for the presence in St..

The men 1 who oppose Bryan's nomination are actuated apparently no other motives than the best interest of the party. To go outside their own ranks would, they say, expose hem to ridicule and result in the dismemberment of their organization, which they claim is now the equal, H not the superior in voting strength of .he democratic .party.
