ed on the text, "He I. not here for he
I. risen." First he emphasized the
point that the Easter Joy Is the con
tinuation of the Joy experienced by
the first disciples. The resurrection
I. a historical fact and substantiated
by historical testimony. Two point,
ware shown In this connection; first,
the continued acceptance of the fact;
It I. a spontaneous outburst of demo
cratic spirit favorable to Johnson they
proclaim.' - It ha. alway. been evident,
but quiescent, because of no candidate
to center "on. Johnson ha. filled thl.
void and as a result he la gaining the
' Johnson leader, declare that they
are ready to carry the tight tor the
control of the atate directly to Spring

being worked with to prevail upon

check the rampant Johnson talk,
Even Bryan men say that It I. entire
ly possible that an unlnstructed dele
gation will be sent to Denver.
At anti-Bryan headquarters last
night Johnson men claimed Pennsyl
vania and New York. If they can get
Illinois they feel that their man 1. as
