THE NI5W KIJI'UHIjICAN OAMPAION
It Proposes to Kstnhllsh llciidiiinrters In
Washington of lis Prominent .Slmnhors
-Tho Object or tho hoelnty nnd tho
IVorlt That It Will Perform.
Tho Republican National Spoil
binder's Association, 'tho recently organ
hod association of Republican' speakers
nnd writers, who held tliolraudtcnces
spellbound during tho past campaign, was
oxpected to meet in tills city to-day, but
it was decided to hold tho meeting In Now
Yoik Instead on noxlWcdiicsdny.
Tho organization was formed a short
whilo ago and it la oxDcctotl that Its
headquarters will bo in this city-.
At tho I-'sccutlro Cbinmiltcp s meeting
in Now Yoik noxt Wednesday this ques
tion will bo dci ided. k
Tho objects of tho organization are such
as should Insure its suclcs.1 from thu
Ono of them Is to "keop alive tho
pleasant memories of the campaign."
Another Is to hold n grand oratorical din
ner in this city at tho Inauguiattoti, nt
which tho new President, Viro-Prcsl-dent
and thu Cabinet shall bo the guests
of the evening. '
But tho principal object Is tho estab
lishment of headquarters in this city
from which all sortu of information that
may servo as ammunition to Republican
political orators may bo supplied.
So tho principal question that tho
Executive Committee will dcchleWednes-
day Is whether tho headquarters are to
be hero in Washington or in New York.
Such a headquarters would bo of great
vuluo to the Republican party.
Suptiosu a "Spellbinder"" wishes to
spullbtnd a mass-mcotlng In Pennsylva
nia, with a harrowing picture of thu
destitution among "tho Ironworkers of
England, he could send to headquar
ters in this city and havo compiled for
him from the best possible olllclal sources
all tho lntest facts and dota bearing on
lus subject. This sort of work can, ot
course, bo done more thoroughly aud
rapidly hero than anywhere else, and for
that reason it is oxpetted that tho Spell
binders' hcadquaitcrdwlll bo In this city.
Then, besides, Washington is naturally
tho political centre of ho counliy, and
having no local politics, a national or
ganization ltko tho Spellbinders would
bo fieo from tho deteriorating inllucncos
of local pot-houso politicians as it could
not bo anynhoro else.
Rut Elliot F. Sliepard, tho vice-president
for Now York, says that President
Dcpow and Treasurer Elwcll tliink that
tho headquarters should bo in Now
York ou account of thnt city's being a
ccntro for political oratory.
TlIU l'UBPOSES IN VIEW.
It Is also designed to mako tho Spell
binders headquarters a sort of Lyceum
Bureau through which trained, well
posted orators can bo furnished to
any Stnto or Congressional district at
short notice for any election. And an
lolhcroftho association's objects is tho
supplying pf tho National Committee In
1892 with an organized bodvi of sneak
ers, already supplied with latest infoi
niatlou upon tho then Issues, avoiding
tho labor, expense, nnd delay involved
nt tho beginning of tho lasti campaign,
n organizing a Speakers' jlureau and
supplying Its workers with their educa
tional ammunition. "V Jt
Tlicso speakers, too, could, it would
scorn, bo bettor arid mono thoroughly
trained and posted on political mnttcis
hero In Washington under, tho shadow
of tho Capitol, whero political history Is
made, than nnywheio else.
Secretary Johnson has been in com
munication with piomlncnt Republicans
nil o or tho country for somo time, and
thoy nil seem to favor tho establishment
of headquarters hero In Washington,
nit. m'i'uicrsox t'AVona;iiic idea.
Chairman McPhcrson of tho Congres
sional Commlttco strongly advocates this
Idea. Ho says that In no other placo can
so good facilities for tho woik that tho
Spellbinders' Association designs to do
bo found as hero. His oxperienco, ho
says, has shown him tho great value
such n headquarters for furnishing po
lltical Information and speakers would
be, and that Washington Is tho proper
placo for these headquarters.
