CHICAGO, Sept. 12. "I want to say that not only am I not announcing my candidacy, but I am not permitting my candidacy." These words Wm. J.

"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 way and that man be chosen who will be the best able to do for the party more than I have yet been able to do."
