Ex-Governor L.ewellin, of Kansas, was
one of the energetic Bryan men to be seen
ut the Ivindell this morning. When asked
as to the nomination of Mr. Bryan he said:
'I can speak for Kansas. That state is
most heartily in favor of the indorsement
of Bryan. We believe that the shortest
cut to silver is the be.-t. The Chicago
platform contains a ireat deal that we
want. It is a pretty good Populist plat
form, and Brvan is a pretty ptood Popu
list." Senator Marion Butler, of North Caro
lina, arrived last niht. He will be fol
lowed in a day or two by the remainder of
the North Carolina delegates. Senator
Butler paid a hith tribute to William J.
Bryan, the Democratic nominee for presi
dent. "He is," --aid the senator, ".the best
man presented by the Democrats at the
Chicago convention for nomination." Al
though speaking in such high terms of
Mr. Bryan. Senator Butler gave no indi

the Populists. " lii:it," he said, "is a mat

R.mben F. Kolb.whohas brcore famous
on account of the lights he has made for

He says he has no objection to the nomi
nation of Bryan, but d ;es not want the
Populist convention to indor. e him. "We
do not want to wipe out our identity,"
he said, "we must not erfa-e ourse'ves."
Mr. Kolb also declared that the Populists
will want a part of the electors.

from Ohio, is not in favor of
indorsing, or even taking the course pur
sued by a great many Populist leaders,
and nominating, instead of indorsing.
Bryan. He thinks a straight ticket should
be nominated, but is pushing a plan which
he says will unite the silver vote against
the gold vote. It is to have electors se
lected pro rata, according to the votes east,
by the parties whose national conventions
have declared for silver. This would give
the Populists the vice presidency if the
scheme should be adopted.
Senator J. K. Jones, of Arkansas, chair
