There will be u try out Bety Veen the wets and the Drys. The Wen known or. Bryan will head the Drys. Probably some Delegate from new York Amie possibly Norman Mack will appear for the wets. The new York state convention adopted a Plank favouring Beer and wine. A careful Canvas of the committee on Resolution whose membership is already practically determined shows a dry majority. May stage fight on. Floor this insures a majority a Quiri drawn by Witt. J. Bryan endorsing the prohibition amendment and declaring for irs strict enforcement.

Bryan and Wilton to have tryout the Virginia Plank endorses the treaty of Versailles and the league of nations draft and talks for it ratification without mutilation. The. Other View concedes Tho possibility of reservations to the league draft. I m this question there will be a tryout Between the Bryan and the Wilson control in the convention and the result again will he significant As to what kind of a candidate will he chosen to stand or the platform. Of for instance Bryan should himself come into Hie running As a candidate to lid this is not Itne possible the first thing he would require would be a platform with these two planks in it conforming to his idea. On the Oiler hand the adoption of a moist Plank Aud a Wilson plunk would almost alienate Bryan and his following.
