When tbe national convention ad-
journed for Sunday It waa believed
tbat some solution of the long dead-
lock would result from conferences
between the champlona of the three
leading candidatea, but It developed
that the time had not arrived for the
withdrawal of either Speaker Clark,
Governor Wilson or Representative
Underwood. It was not expected that
the first ballot Monday would mater-
ially differ from the twenty-sixth.
Campaign managers possibly might
have reached some agreement if in-
.terest In the deadlock had not been
dwarfed by tho personal controversy
developed between William J. Bryan
and Speaker Clark. The visit of Mr.
Clark to Baltimore and his arrival too
late to attempt vindication of himself
before the convention overshadowed
everything else as a subject of Sun-

The situation aa aeen by lendera
not associated Intimately In the man-
agement of many of the campaign
seemed about aa follows:
Clark having failed of nomination
for aeventeen ballots after receiving
a majority vote probably bad reach-
ed the crest of Ills strength.
Wilson, although climbing steadily,
apparently was bitterly opposed by
delegates who resented the geucral
Impression that Colonel Uryun had
the veto power, although he lacked
the votnes necessar yto nomination.
These delegates believed that the
New Jersey governor-would continue
to gain oven to the point where he
had a majority, but that he could not
break down the Clark strength which
was said to be determined that Bryan
should not win through a combination
of any kind.

Baltimore.—Mr. Clark's Saturday
night visit to Baltimore suprred his
leaders to unusual activity. The
speaker, after an early morning con-

Stone, Mr. Francis, his manager, Mr.
Dubois and others, where the state-
ment attacking Mr. Bryan was com-
posed, took a short nap and left early
Sunday for Washington.

monoplane fell Into Dorchester bay
iroui a height of 1,000 feeL
Tho accident happened when Miss
Quimby and Willard were returning
from a trip over Boston harbor to Bos-
ton light, a diatance of twenty miles
in all The flight was made in twenty
minutes. The Bleriot, one of the lat-
est models of military monoplanes,
circled the sviation field and soared
out over the Savin Hill Yacht club,
just outside tbe aviation field;
Heading back into the eight-mile
gusty wind, Miss Quimby started to
volplane. The angle was to shary and
one of the gusts caught the tail of the
volplane. The angle was too sharp
and one of the gusts caught the tail of
the monoplane, throwing the machine
ip perpendicular. For the instant it
ooised there, then, sharply outlined

nonoplane plunged down fifteen feet
It was low tide and the water was
inly five feet deep. Men from the
facht club in motor boats were on
.he spot quickly and leaping over-
joard dragged the bodies out of the
nud into which they had sunk deeply.
Both bodies were badly crushed.
Several of Mies Quimbys bones were
iroken and there were many large
iruises. Willard, who weighed 190
sounds, hit the water face first and
>ver one eye there was a gash from
which the blood was flowing. He, too,
mstained several fractures and
jruises. The clothing of both flyers

with mud thatit was several minutes
before the doctors and nurses could
leterinine fully the injuries.

'lot on the floor during the afternoon
when William J. Bryan found himself
