a committee to consider political con?
ditions.
Governor Hadley made a personal
statement later, however, with the ex?
planation that he undertook to speak
only (or himself. He declared that the
deflection of 4.000.000 voters from the
' Republican ranks in 1912, "requires
J a careful consideration." and urged
I that a national convention be ca.ied
before tho beginning of the next
campaign to redraft party rules e"
I that no question could be raised over
I the '?representative character" ot ni
I llonal Republican conventions.
Governor Vessey, of South Dakota,
j one of those present, 1? Progressive
National ?'ommitteeinari for that ?lat< .
and announced he would attend the
Piogresblve gathering at Chicago ne.\t
week. He remained in the conleren-c
wover, and participated in the dis?
cussion.
Coverr.cr Tener, of Pennsylvania,
said there had been a free exchange
of Republican views and a general
agniSSSlSSl of hope that the Republi?
can party could be strengthened.
Views of Hadley.
Governor Had. discussing bis
"personal views," said:
"I have felt and acted upon the
theory that the Republican party had
1 not outlived its usefulness as an
agency of good government, but I do
?Ot agree with those who contend that
all that is necessary for us to do Is to
sit still or to stand pat In the hopo
and btlief that Democratic mistakes or
general business depression will re?
store the Republican party to power.
"1 believe that the fact that the 4.
voters who voted the Republi?
can ticket In 190^ and refused to vote
It In 1912 requires a careful consid?
eration as to the reason of their action
a:.'i ai to a hat may be done, to correct
ci r.d.:i-.r.s to which they have object?
ed
"One of the conditions which has
been the cause of objection wltrun the
party for years has been the basis of
representation from Southern States.
Another Is the party's attitude towards
dir.rt primarlee for the election of
delegates. I believe that such change
should be made in the existing rules
for the caaedaet of party affaire in both
of these matters that there can be no
question bat that the will of the ma?
jority will control, both aa to policy
and as to candldatea
"We Republicans who believe In
progressive policies cannot ask that
those who are conservative should
change their op!nl?&a>. but we ought,
all to be able, to agree that the con?
ventions that settled these questions
snail be truly representative of the vot?
ers At what time and in what way
such char.ges should bo made, it la inj
my op'nlor, too early to say.
There should be ample time for the 1
prejudices and feelings aroused by
the recent contest to subatda I believe
that prior to the beginning of tne i
1914 campaign, probably within tho '
next Tear, there should be called a
national convention of the party to
consider these questions or any other'
matters that it might aeem advisable
to consider."

newspaper correspondents whether he
wished to reply to the statement of
Cole I> Klease, Governor of So Jth
Caro'ina, made at Richmond a day or
two ago, when he said. "To hell with
the Constitution." In view of the fact
that the latter haa announced hlmselr (
a cand'date for the Senate to succeed
Senator ?mlth in 1915. aald:
"In view of the fact that a majority
of the people of South Carolina have
chosen Governor Blease ag chief ex?
ecutive of the Etats, his views on pub?

by the public as the vlewa of those
who elected him. until repudiated by
them. Further than this I do not care
to make any statement."
This means that fihe South Carolina

Into a contest for his seat at this time,

The Packard "38" turns in a circle
forty-one and one-half feet in
diameter.
Six-Inch Depth of Frame
Prevents body distortion and

FOR WICKERSHAM
Then, if He Fails to Reconsider,
Congressional Action Is
Threatened.
[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Washington, December 7.?"Amazing
and unprecedented." was how Repre?
sentative Garner, of Texas, to-nlsht
branded the action of Attorney-Gen?
eral Wlckersham in stopping the ar
reat of John D. Arcbbold and other offi?
cials of the Standard Oil Company, In?
dicted by a Texas grand Jury in the
Waters-Pierce litigation.
Garner and Representative Beall. ?t
Texas, breathed indignation and retri?
bution for Wickersham. Ruth declartd
they will give Wlckersham "Just one
mor? chance to reconsider."
"I never heard of such an amazing
and unprecedented affair." said Gar?
ner. "A Federal grand Jury indicted
Archbold upon evidence sutflv*nt to
justify Issuance of warrants. Yet the
Attorney-General, with scant or no
consideration of the evidence, says he.
not the grand Jury, must be satisfied
that probable ra_.se exists for the pros
' ecution.
'My colleagues from Texas propose
'< to give the Attorney-General Juat one
more chance to reconsider his action
bofore provoking a congressional in?
vestigation."
Repr?sentative Beeil, echoing Oar
ner s ser.tlmenta. said In falrneaa to
United States District Attorney At
well, of Texaa. aa well as Wlckersham.
that congressional action should be
stayed until Wlckersham rerelvee the
formal opinion of Atwell and Depart?
ment of Justice officials and makes
known his final decision.
"If the Department of Juatice at?
tempts to override the authority of
the Texas Federal courts, however."
eald Garner, "the country la entitled to
