WILLIAM HOWAKf) TAFT.
FOR VIOB PRESIDENT,
JAMES S. BUEItMAN.
(Chicago Intcr-Ocein. )
h ... The contest over the two dolegnleg from tho
FourUi Cnlifornfn district was tho ono ou which
,tho Iloosovclt faction was loudest in its out
. cries of ''theft" and
"fraud'' against tho na
tional committco and
tho committco on cre
dentials. It was also
the one on which the
Roosevelt faction came neaicsr, with 559 votes
to 542, to getting a favorable decisiou from
Tho California case was a peculiar one, and
:-' wo agree with Governor Johnson that far moio
' 'f ia imr1fnil in it. flillll 1 lm SI'.'llH of tVf) dolcPatCS
' nntLtho power ot two votes in tne convention.
s Tho real question involved is: How far
may a Legislature rightly and lawfully go iu
"dictating to a political party with respect to
tho. management of its internal affairs?
A political party is a voluntary association
of citizens. It has nothiug of the nature of a
corporation or joint stock company. It is not
created by tho atato in any souse. It exists
only by common consent of its members. It
is tho laxest and freest of voluntaiy associa
tions. Citizens come into it or go out of it
wholly at tho individual's will.
It holds or acquires no tangible properly.
It cannot make a contract enforceable in tho
courts, or incur a debt for money or goods on
, which tho courts will recognize ,it as a debtor.
One who sells any article for its use or renders
any service for its benefit has claim for com
pensation only against the individual who ob-
,'- tains the goods or procures the service
X From tho nature of '.hese established , facts
of a political party's status it follows that a
, political party's internal conduct and manage
ment of its internal affairs are as much beyond
tho purview of legislation as is the conduct of
& the individual citizen within his own doors
'm the managomout of his domestic affairs,
so long as he does not violate some specific
;v '. provision of tho criminal code.
(For a legislature to attempt to dictate
to a political party with respect to its
internal distribution of offices and dutios is
liko attempting to dictato which member of
the household shall build the fires and which
sweep tho floor.
- For thirty-two years over since tho dici
aion of tho famous ''unit rule" controversy in'
its convention of 1SS0 tho Republican party
ji has recognized tho congressional district as a
"r political unit. Its basis of representation has
v uniformly been two delegates from each con-
i gressional district and four from tho state at

is what tho decision means, aud all the outcry

candidate for the Presi

there was a strong aud
rapidly growing pro
gressive movement within the Republican paity.
It was based upou clearly defined principles.
It stood forth as the representative of modern
political thought on fundamental democracy.
It had assumoJ national proportions. It was
"Into this movement, when it gave promise
of national success, Roosevolt projected his
ambition to be President a third time. He
responded by announcing that ho would be a
'receptive' candidate. His candidacy began
to drag. Ho and his friends were iu despair.
Then came his defeat iu North Dakota. He
"An enormous campaign fund .was raised.
Headquarters wero opened in New York,
Washington, C.hicago and Stales East and
West. Newspaper writeis wore engaged at
largo prices to boom his candidacy. Special
trains were hired and the 'receptive cuudidato'
started in frantic pursuit of tho nomination.

Men notoriously iudontified with the Steol

most activo supporters. Leading reactionaries

friends and representatives iu may states.
"A number of the newer recruits to the Re
publican progressive cause, men who, before
1009, with three or four excoptious, had either
been indifferent or opposed to the piogressive
movement, became th6 uoiseist supporters of
Roosevolt, the 'winner.' It mattered not to
them that Roosevelt had co-operated with Al
drich on legislation during the on tiro sevou
years ho was Presidout. They forgot that it
was only when Roosevolt was out of ollico and
in Africa, through tho uuiled efforts of men
-tfho for years had been fighting special inter
ests, that tho progressive cause became a na
tional movement. ,
"Upon Thoodoro Roosevelt and his follow
ers rests the responsibility of having divided
tho Progressives in their first national contest.
Stimulated by an over-mastering desire to wiu,
they denounced loyality to conviction and
principle as stubburn selfishness; In the con

of the braes. Ho to&sed eggs In the air, whore they vanished, and
' found them In one of the brave's blankets. He did tho pistol shooting
trick, catching the bulletin bis teeth, finishing by swallowing tho pistol
and finding It In the chiefs moccasins. Tho chief was so impressed by
the Impromptu performance that Iteno was appointed to the position of
