Have Majority But Will Not Fight Bryan Owing to the light over the platform Between the conservatives and the radical free silverites Bryan was not nominated on the Fourth as had been planned He will be nameJ today However on a platform of his own dic tation Towne will probably be the nominee for vice president and com plete the surrender of the democratic party to popuiarism The conservatives would have been satisfied with but were denied aven that They wanted to reaffirm the Chicago platform 16 to 1 and all but wanted no specific mention of the ratio in this years platform Their willingness to accept even this as a victory shows how completely they are dominated by the silverites and the re fusal of the latter to grant even this much indicates how poorly they regard those who will not swallow free silver The opponents of radical action on the silver question are in a majority in the convention but they dare not take a stand against Bryan Additional news of the convention
