These words Wm. J. "Bryan adminis
tered to cheek the enthusiasm which, at
the Jefferson club banquet tonight in
Bryan 's honor, greeted the speeches ad
vocating bis nomination for a third time
for the presidency.
"1 am not now," said Bryan, "a
candidate for any office. The talk of
candidacy for office does not affect me
as it once did. My place in history
will be determined not by what the peo
ple are able to do for me, but what ' I
am able to do for the people. It is too
soon to choose a candidate for presi
dent to make the race three years from
now; it is too early to pledge ourselves
to any one man. I trust that before
the time comes to name a man for the
next presidential nomination more light
will be thrown upon the party's path

be the best able to do for the party
more than I have yet been able to do."

Smutty Wheat Will Net Be Graded
Lower Than Formerly. ,
TACOMA. Wash., Sept. 14. Wash
ington wheat growers are' happy over
the announcement by the state grain
inspection department that there will
be no change in the present system of
grading smutty wheat. Wheat con
taining smut .will be graded as No. 1,
smutted, although the growers will have
to submit to the higher charges made
by the combine for smutting the grain.
The charge for smutting will, how
ever, be from 5 to 2D cents, against a
charge of 3 and 4 cents in former years,
the commission deciding that it has no
authority to say what shall be charged
by the buyers for this work. The com
mission will experimentally, for a
month, fix the dockage on each car. of
dirty wheat inspected. Should the plan
prove successful, it will be adopted

as Favored Candidate for Norway
Ministership to Great Britain in the
Event of Dissolution.
LONDON, Sept. 13. Dispatches from
Chriatiania represent the situation be
tween Norway and Sweden as serious
on account of the determined attitu.le
of the ; Swedish commissioners. Dis
patches from Stockholm, however, are
less pessimistic, and express the hope
that a modus vivendi wui be arranged.
Much interest is aroused by the pres
ence in Loudon of Fritjof Nansen, the
Arctic explorer, who, in February, was
considered a likely candidate for the
permiership of Norway ami who, since
the disolution of the union, has been
spoken of as first minister of Norway
to CJreat Britain.
According to a disptach fr6m Gothen
