Nebraskan Thought to Ee Willing the

ard In the 1904 Campaign.
Portland, March 25. The Evening
Telegram has this special from "Wash
ington: A smart revival of gossip about the
future. of the democratic party is tak
ing place since the visit to the nation
al capital of William Jennings Bryan.
It is worth noting that the man 'who
has twice been tho nominee of his
party for president is still able to
p.nmmnnd attention of many of the
most Influential men in the party. His
advice on important questions was
sought during his stay here, and he
was ready as ever to volunteer sug
He left the Impression with his ad
mirers here that he does not hone to
be the" nominee of his party again in
1904, but he does expect to have some
thing to say when the time comes to
pick out a standard-bearer. One
piece of gossip afloat since he left
the city is that he said the nominee
must come from the Middle West. So
far as can be learned, he did not men
tion any names, but it is regarded as
significant that soon after his depar
ture Ohio democrats here began to
mention Tom L. Johnson, mayor of
Cleveland, as the most available man
looming up on tho horizon. An Ohio
an is authority for tlfe statement that
Johnson is at this time a full-Hedged
candidate for the democratic nomina
tion, and he declares .that there is an
nnderstandine between Johnson and
.Bryan, leaving the impression that the
Cleveland mayor Is the choice oi uvy
an for president.
Johnson, it is said, is anxious to
keep his presidential boom in the
background until he has made a race
for governor of his state. Just now
he is busy laying wires to catch the
nomination for governor. His Btate
campaign, it is said, is to be waged on
a platform demanding more equitable
taxation in his state. His agents are
seeking information in every county
in Ohio, and when he gets the figures
before him he proposes to attempt to
show that the great corporations are
not bearing their proportionate share
of the burdens of taxation.
"He believes he can be elected gov
ernor," said an Ohio man, "and if he
is successful every effort to secure
the nomination for president will be
made. His plans are well understood
by Mr. Bryan and his friends, and
meet their approval."
