Republican State Committeeman
Sounds Note of Warning Against
People Following the Preaching of
Former President?Heaps Criticism
Upon Attack on Supreme Court.
(By Associated PresO
NEW YORK. Sept. 2?William
Ilarncs, Jr . Republican state commit
teem;in and leader of Albany, issued a
sta:enient tonight in which he de?
clares that "hysteria has rag not
throughout this county." and that the
question to be decided at the coming
Republican state convention at Sara?
toga is "whether the Republican putty
will fight the disease or succumb in
the interests of pcliticians seeking
offlrc or tem|>orary acclaim." *
The chatacter of the recent .'"l
dresses of Theodore Roosevelt in the
West, Mr. Harms says, has startled
all thoughtful men and Impressed
them with the frigh'ful danger which
lies in his political ascendancy."
Hia Talk with Colonel.
When he talked with Ce'onel Roose?
velt after the meeting which selected
Vice-President Sherman as temporary
chairman of the convention over the
colonel and learned his attiude toward
' public ma'ters," Mr. Harnes says, he
told the former president that he
never could have voted for him.
Mr Barnes' statement in part says:
"At the coming convention it will be
determined whether the Republican
party of this state, officially, through
its chosen tepresentatives in oonven
t:on intends to bow its fiead to th"
political agitation of the hour, which
is the caitse of the palsy overhnngtng
the business world today, or will s and
firmly and in unmistakable terms by
its rock-ribbed conservative principles
which Slave, when, it is in power,
given confidence to the wotld and en?
Criticiaea Attack on Court.
'The recent attack upon the Su?
preme Court of the tlni'ed State? by
a keen witted and aspiring citizen,
could not have been made without
a purposo*))Vell thought out. It was nn
ap|>eal to passion. If this appeal
against judicial decision.- is popular
and ? not rebuked, there is no rcson
whatsoever, if a direct primary Itw
should be enae'ed in this state, that
candidates for judicial offices, com
?pelled to run the gauntlett of a dis?
trict rr state-wide primary, would not.
in order to appeal to the temporary
sentiments of the moment, declare In
adance ihcir attitude upon matters
which would come before them for
judicial review. Instead of men of
long legal experience and Judicial
training, there would be candldaf?--.
fcr the bench from lawyers who would
not hesitate to make that kind of ap?
peal to the people which would be a
disgrace to their profession."

The people of Omaha did not turn
