Mr. Hryan said that discussion of

that he looks for ultimate success. He

Mr. Mltchel will bo the next Mayor but
becauso he will bo the first turkey trot

worst real estate deal In the history of
the world. Tho country hotel men con
gratulated their city brethren on the out

that Mayor Mltchel will fotget about all

and they haT decided to right Itnteud of

Indicate what that their party haa been

the defeat of Judge Werner In Now York
and Mr. Stokes In New Jersey ua great
Progressive victories, but what have they
accomplished for social Justice? I want
to say that this vendetta policy Is not
acceptable to thousands of men who voted
for Theodore Itoosevelt In 1912 and will
gladly vote for him again.
"In less than a year vvc will elect a

men who now propose that the Progres

district. Is It not evident that any such
plan will mean the return of another over
whelming majority for the Pemocrntlc
party In the next Congress? The people
are best governed when the margins of
strength of the two dominant parties aro
slight. No one will dispute that the Re
publican party presents to-day the most
cohesive, effective force with which to
combat thn Democratic party. The ques
tion before us is. shall wo concentrate
our strength upon this most effective
fighting force and make a ieat errort
to carry the next Congress or dissipate
our strength upon unmet ssary candida
cies and organizations? I for one am
emphatically In favor of the tlrst course,
and shall work to accomplish It. The
time has come when there should be less
talk of 'Armageddon' and more thought
of the. future of our own United States.
"I believe there must come an amalga
mation of Interests upon the part of Re
publicans and' Progressives. The move
ment for the accomplishment ot this
purpose must be started now In order
that duu preparation may be made for
next year's elections. 1 trust that the
Republican party In tho meetings of Jts
National Committee and proposed national
convention to be held In the near future
will exhibit a full appreciation of the re
quirements of the times. It certainly will
do so If it Is Inspired by the same patriotic
spirit which has always brought it suc
cess in the past."
