William Jennings Bryan this after-
noon announced postiveiy that he
would not accept the nomination for
president tendered him by the pro-
hibition national convention at Lin-
coln, Neb. The first intimation of
his nomination was received by him
at 1 o'clock this afternoon at Madi
son Lake, upon bis return from ■
forenoon of fishing when he read an
Associated Press dispatch giving the
test of the telegram sent to him by
the convention at Lincoln. He was
forty miles away from any telegraph
office at the time, but soon as he
reached Norris, Montana, he tele-
graphed a reply rejecting the nomi-
Bryan's telegram said:

roads and telegraph facilities for the

I hasten to reply. I profoundly ap-
preciate the honor done me in tend-
ering this nomination and 1 fujiy

of our country and in the strict en-
forcement of the Volstead act with-
out any weakening of its provisions.
I also share the convention's disap-
pointment at the failure of tho Demo-
cratic and Republican parties to pledge
their candidates to such a policy, but
I cannot In justice to the prhibition
party nor to myself accept the nomin-

shall vote his fall, but however I
may feol It my duty to do In this
