A gieat natioiial Republican com en

annua! dinner at the Hotel Astor. whero
Got. Dudley nt Mii-sourl and Gov Rber
haidt of .Minnesota had been asked to
assist lii Injecting a little of the vigor
of piogresslvlsm' Into the old party.
Neither of the Wertern Governors wn-s

at the last moment, but 1 'resident Hut

those who followed him. made the pro
gressive spirit and reconciliation within

"There should be." said he, "a na
tional party convention in 1S1", when
no candidates are to bo nominated and
no election to bo held. It should have
a representation on the basis so nearly
adopted In 1U0H, and should In- open
to every man willing to stand tin the
platform of 1912, without regard to
which of the live 'residential candidates
ho voted for last fall. Theie should be
a reorganization of the part, a new
apportionment of delegates and a re
newed declaration of party faith.
"And I challenge any fair minded
man to say that that plutform of Chl
tngo and the platform of Saratoga do
not deal In most progressive spirit with
the problems of tho day, or that they
fall short of committing a great party
to u policy of cons'stent advances."
President Hutler went on to nay that
the. Republican party as a minority
purly had a rare oppoi tunlty for a
lilgh minded opposition.
"What better chance could the Re
publicans of Now York .State want,"
he asked, "than will be given In the
near future by Tammuny Mall? Keep
your eyes on the bills which will soon
bo reported from the committee on
titles and other committees. It Is our
business to keep before tho people the
true character of every bill which Tam

After his Introduction by 1'hlllp J.
.McCook, president of Ihe club, who re
minded tho 20i) member present that
'hey had Inst only six "throiiKh the
recent political upheaval," Mr. Hutler
dismissed, us he said, the opportunity
10 make a post mortem and consider
what had happened. He preferred, he
explained, to discuss, as the Germans
put It, tho "leal pnlltlk" things as they
arc, und what may be done. And ho
wished, he said, to make two points:
first, thut the Republican party was not
a defeated but a split purtv, not re
pudlatod by the American peopje but
split from within, and second, that pa
thetically enough It had beep split not
on principles but on organization, and
thut on a point vv'nlch had been nil hut

Second, that there will be freedom

The first meeting of the delegates will
be purely Informal. It will be a pre
liminary session to discuss the mode of
procedure and to elect a presiding of
ficer. The consideration of serious business
will begin on Monday, Deoember 16,
when the delegate will start to discuss
the matters outttned In the armistice
pourparlers on the Tchataldja lines. It
Is likely that the first subject to be
taken under consideration will be the ul
timate division of Thrace between Bul
garia and Turkey. No difficulties are
anticipated In regard to the settlement
of this point, as both countries are
agreed on the principle of a frontier
line based on the treaty of Ban Btefano.
The question of the possession of
Adrlanople will be a more delicate
point. Hope for a settlement of this
centres on a proposal that Adrlanople
he dismantled and remain Turkish.
There aro also such matters to be
considered as the revenues accruing to
the Ottoman debt and customs, hut
doubtless a commercial understanding
bctwoen Turkey and Bulgaria wilt be
arranged wjilch will embody all matters
of economic Interest to both.
The affairs of Macedonia will call
for more protracted discussions. It Is
likely that at that stage of the con
ference the meeting of the Ambassadors
of the Powers will take place. The
Ambassadors will follow the dlscuslons
and will guide and assist the delegates
If necessary on points where the In
terests of the Towers are Involved.
M. Daneff, the president of the Bul
garian Parliament, who has arrived at
Sotla from Tchataldja, Is reported to be
very optimistic about the outcome. He
thinks that peace will be concluded
within a reasonable time. M. Daneff
says he found the Turkish delegates at
Tchataldja very conciliatory, especially
Naztm Pasha. M. Daneff says he has
no doubt of the sincerity of the declara
tion of the Turks that they do not want
to waste any time In reaching an agree
At the same time that the representa
tives are conferring there will come the
conference of the Ambassadors of the
Powers, which It is expected will clear
the air of the rumors of European war.
It Is officially announced at Vienna that
Austria-Hungary will come Into this
conference proposed by Sir Edward Orey
and the participation of all the Powers
Is thus Insured.
Austria's attitude Is the moat vexing
problem before the chancelleries to-day.
An alarming report from the Berlin cor
respondent of the Kvenlno A'eir Is
prnted here to-day to the effect that
Austria Intends to send an ultimatum to
Servla between December 10 and De
cember 12. This ultimatum, says the
report, will be couched In such language
that Russia must Immediately take sides
one way or the other.
Meanwhile the heavy Austrian artil
lery at Semlln, opposite Belgrade, Is
trained directly at flervla's Capitol, Aus
trian engineers are building trenches on
the Russian frontier between Cracow
and Lemberg and Austrian trope occupy
the railroads at all strategic petitions,
says this despatch'.
An unverified report from Cracow
says that there was a mutiny among
the Austrian troops there when the
order was given to march to Semlln,
(mo officer Is reported to have been
killed and several Injured by the troops.
Many shots were fired by the soldiers,

This concentrating of men and muni

of oltlclal denials.

do the healthful business of showing
where Russia stands.

that Russia Is responsible for a great

on, that It is the bear that walks like

Men Prefer Telephone Shopping
MANY men dread a shopping tour. They
seem embarrassed and confused in the
big crowds of earnest shoppers. So
they leave most of the buying to the women
of the family. But most men want personally
to buy the Christmas gifts to send to their
friends, and here, as in their daily busi
ness, they naturally turn to the telephone.
The Telephone makes Christmas shopping
easy for thousands of busy men. Every up-to-date
store gives careful attention to tele
phone orders, and men who want to save their
time and effort and, in addition, get satisfac
tion, do their Christmas shopping by telephone.
Suppose YOU try Telephone Shopping
this Christmas? Just Buy Early and
By Telephone the business-like way.
