This Quentlpn bas been asked thou
sands and thousands of times, but no
one In the country can give the correct
unswer., Xo ono knows, und any State
ment Is a guess, and one milli's guess
ls.nearly us good us another's.
There ure so . many elements that
ba vb to be considered before naming
the Q. O. l\ standard hearer that no
one cati tell what the short weeks
prior to tho convention will bring
about. By tile time the delegates are
assembled in the Chicago Coliseum on
Jnue 7 many things can happen which
may change the entire outlook.
About the only certain thing In thc
nest presidential race Is the fact that
Wilson will be the Democratic candi
date. Bryan's attitude, Roosevelt's at
titude and the Progressive party are
the fhliigs that are worrying tho lend
When the Democratic convention met
in Baltimore in 1912 the.delegates hud
been Instructed for various men from
different sections of the country. Ev

Roosevelt Piominent Candidate.
Roosevelt ls one of the leading pited
hllitles today, lie has already been
president for seven lind one-half years,
havlug served three and one-half, years
. of McKinley's second term after the
Ohio nulli wns killed and having been
elected In 1004. Writing about Roose

for he ls the best kniVwii mau In the
country and has occupied the limelight
more than any other public servant
Supreme Court Justice- Charles l-l
Hughes of New York is another lead
f lng possibility, although he bas stated
time and again that he.was not ti cain
d ida te for tlie.nomlnatiou. His posi
tion on the bench makes lt Impossible
; for him to ?tato any views on questions
that occupy the minds of political lead

the iiominotloiyh) tendered him he will
resign frorii tho bench and become an

; The formal call, to the convention'
%?? ?ddr?Vst-d "to the Republican'elec
tors of the United. States" and jointed
out that represen ta ti on thin -^?rar will
be npoit ? different basis from that
I which has heretofore prevailed, tho ef
fect of which will be to reduce repre
sentation in tho southern states, where
the Republican vote I? light.
In specifying the manner of electing
delegates the call said:
"Bald national convention shall con
sist of four dclegutcs nt large from
each stute nod two delegates at large
for each representative nt large in con
gress, one delegate from each congres
sional district, un additional delegate
for each congrcsslounl'dlstrlet In which
the vote-for any Republican elector In
1008 or for tho Republican nominee
for congress in 1914 shall have been
not less than ".GOO, two delegates each
from the District ot Columbia, Aluska.
Hawaii, Porto Rico and tho Philippine
Islauds. All dclegntcs from any state
maj', however, be chosen from the
state at large lu thc event that the
laws of the state in which the election
occurs so provide. Alternate delegates
shall be elected to thh? convention for
each unit of representation equal to
the number of delegates elected there
Under this pinn Pennsylvania will
have seventy-six delegates, New Jer
sey twenty-eight and Delaware six,
while eight southern state?-, will lose
representation, most of them having
only one delegate to n congressional
district with the usual number at

and Sergeant at Arms William F.
Stone. -The Coliseum annex headquar
ters will go into commission ten days
before the convention, nt which time
tbo subcommittee and the full national
committee will get Into sesslop to con
sider any contests.
8o far as the subcommittee could
proceed, it ruled against any "double"
delegations, meaning -that objection
was raised to states sending in dele
gates with one-half vote eacb.; This
applies particularly to Kentucky. The
seating arrangements of tike Coliseum,
allotment of tickets and all other in
volved details were responsible for this
"Chicago is well nigh universally con
ceded to be the first convention city of
'our land," said one of the committee
men. "The fact that more conventions
aro held there annually than In nil the
rival cities put together, that 440 con
ventions met there in 1014. proves that
the business and professional men of
this country recognize that Chicago as
a convention city ls without a pe?r..
And there arc.good renton* for this un
equaled popularity, .
- Then, too, Chicago has admittedly
the greatest park and boulevard sys
tem In the world. In the number ami
quality or its hotels, restaurants and
a tim ct i ons of ail- kinds, lt ls unsur
passed In this country.-'And lt is only,
uatiiral that it should be: so. Chicago,
with its 2.500,000 souls, ls the greatest
city of the west tho second city, of the '
United States, the second city pf this
hemisphere und the fourth or fifth in
all the world. V
?'Tho Interest will-be Intense: the list
of candidates for thc nomination great
er, than iu many years. The hosts
which will gather to witness the first
step toward the restoration of the Re
publican party to power', will ? In- all
probability be unprecedented.
