tiou, October , W, Mr. Bryan
attempted to secure the adoption of
;i free-silver plank, which was sub
mitted in the form of a minority re
port of the Committee on Resolu
tions, and voted down by a vote of
;;slto 10(1. This exasperated Bryan,
and he spoke with great earnestness
in his denunciation of the conven
tion for declining to embrace the
doctrine of free silver. His speech
was a memorable one. lie declared
vehemently that if the State Demo
cr.tts would not revise the action of
tlm convention he would light the
hut tin of free silver under another
banner. His attitude wai plainly
that of a bolter, and all Democrats
inthn State so reearded it. The
convention had nominated Judge
Frank Irvine for the Supreme bench
Irvine, of course, wanted the support
of Hrvan and hia followers, and from
Hm talk then current his friends in-
nrm ml him that Brvan and the free
uilvnr wintr of the Democracy would
mmnort Judire Maxwell, the Popu
Imt nominee for the Supreme bench,
running against Irvine, straight
rat. The latter wanted some
pxnression from liryan to check this
movement of the latter's followers
airainst him and he wrote the fol
lowing letter with that purpose in
'State of Nebraska, Supreme
rVmrt.-Omaha. Neb. Oct. 0, 1893.
Hon. W. J. Bryan, House of Repre
nentatives, Washington. My uea
Sir: I fear that some occurrences
in the convention have had the effect
nf alienating vour friends from th
ticket nominated. I think myself
that some thincs vere done whic
am to hn regretted, but I do not
think it is our desire that these things
should be made a cause for a deser
tion of rartv and tho defeat of its
publican convention in turning down
Maxwell bftcauae he was to honest
to be controlled by toe ring all
the.-e events have conspired to make
the election of Ilolcomb probable.
The railroad Democrats will vote for
the Republican candidate as usual.
i ou will not only sutler in reputa
tion by accepting a nomination from
such a convention, but will receive
but a small vote in spite of the pro
mises which the Republicans always
hold out to our candidates before
"I regret that our people choso for
slaughter so deserving a man. They
rt..cri.t t ),n.v twlected some one of
the numerous Democrats who are
responsible for the falling off of the
Democratic vote. I have spoken to
you thus frankly and confidentially,
because I feel that you deserve a
better fate than the one which I fear
awaits you this fall. I would make
any sacrifice to be of service to you
personally, but as a nominee of that
convention and running upon that
platform I could not make an appeal
in your behall witnout giving me ne
to all that I hav ever r.aid and done
n behalf of the Democratic party
ud its principles. If I were in your
place, I would refuse to be a candi
date and await vindication. So far
as I am concerned my speech at the
convention expresses my convictions
and states my position. It dees not
seem best at this time to add any
thing to it.
"Renewing my assurances or nign
esteem, I am very tiuly yours,

Judge Irvine was defeated.
