"Charley" Murpljy;

the big New Yorkeiv
who makes and un
makes statesmen,

down, has broken
his inviolable rule
and submitted to in
terrogation at the
hands of those arch
enemies of society
reporters.
This is hard to
believe for it's really the big
gest s en isatiori of the Baltimore
convention but it's true never
theless. Here's the interview ex
actly as it appeared in the Balti
more papers, after being,-strained
through a three-inch cratk in the
chieftain's bedroom door:

Just the same in these trying
times everything that can be used
as an argument against a candiJ
date is dug up, and we hear cheer
ful Clarkites, Harmonites and"
Underwoodites proclaiming that
people would laugh at such a face
as Wilson's if it was on the presi
dent of the United States.
The Wilson headquarters is
overlooking no bets, and has suc
ceeded in coppering this one neat

Wilson's daughters, running like
this (the jingle, not the daugh
