Will Be Named By Convention
Tho Republican county convention
will bo hold nbout tho middle of July,
but it may como lator, as thoro Is a
desire on tho purt of tho harmony
loaders to get a good Una on tho

will not bo easy, tho leadors admit,
ns thoy assort tho Thompson county
moot In tho Auditorium hotel In Chi
cago and will adopt a platform nnd
nominate candidates for prosldent
and vice president.
"Tho country faces a gravo emerg
ency which tho republican conven
tion failed to moot. That conven
tion ignored most ot tho serious
problems and montlonod others only
to roveal Its unwllllngnoss to fuco
them honestly. Tho republican party
has now driven out of representation
In its councils tho millions ot votors
who followed Roosovolft Johnson and
Ln Folletto. Tho now party will rep
resent thoso voters and will present
n doflnlto nnd constructive pro
gramme. "Thoro will bo roprosontntives nt
tho now party convention of nil sorts
of people. Farmers, wngo earners,
tho professional class, tho salaried
class, tho business man and the legi
timate Investor; nil people, ln short,
who nro against spoclul privilege.
"Tho now party novement Is tak

ganized in moro than thirty stntos
nnd it will bo propared to put Its
oloctoral ticket on the ballots in
