It Is believed, the masses of the iarty
can bo kepi In constant louih with
the plana of the national inanaKcment,
nnd the eiluctillo.ial propaganda kept
moving nil tit.- time.
The 1'rogrvsslvc weekly newspaper
which already has been atartcd, and
la to be BtiriiRtlnncd, will be made u
strong feature In tho program. It will
probably bo named Tho I'rogressn-e

It Is likely to be somewhat similar to

It wl.l probably be published from
New lork. though theru la an element

or tho woik from Washington.
To Hap Out Details.
Thoro will be considerable discussion
of detailed plans for organization work.
Ono proposal Is to crcata a new com
mlttcc on organization which shall have
its headquarters In Now York, while
U publicity and political work shall
be taken to Washington. In tho West
ern wing of tho pnrty thero Is some In
ulatenco that the educational and pub
licity operations shall be conducted
from Washington rather than New
York; and there Is also a demand that
an Important organization headquar
ters be maintained In Chicago, from
which to handle practically everything
west of Ohio.
National Chairman Joseph M. Dixon,
who will retire March 4 as Senator from
Montana, would be glad to resign the
duties of his position because ne In
tends to return to Montana to practice
law and conduct his newspaper at Mis
soula. Ho will not Insist on going out,
however, piovlded an arrangement ran
Iw mado to handle the work In such
'fashion that It shall not rcmilrc too
much of his time outside Montana.
There has been talk of W. II. Hoteh
klss, former ihulrman of the New York
State committee, for national rhalt
man If Mr. Dixon should decldo to re
tire. Colonel Koosi-velt has declined to
make any statement of his views or
iccommendatlons. until tomorrow fore

Tho conferonoe of this week aptly Il
lustrated the new political methods that
tho now party Is Invoking. In tho past
political platforms have been mado for
campaign purposes. Their real purpose
was served when they had provided
texts for orators to elucidate from tho
stump. After election the problem
usually was to keep tho people reason
ably satisfied while doing just as llttlo
as posslblo of what had been promised.
It Is as If the national committee of
a party wero to be constituted a stoer
Inr committee for tho wholo Nation to
gel thlrgs done according to party
promises. In short, the machinery of
tho ncw party Is to be made primarily
a delce for getting things done, not
for capturing voles In campaign tlmo,
