tlon of the Republican party aro progress
ing 'to the oxtent that thoy arc being
made the subject of serious conaldora
tljn by republican lenders resident in or
I visiting Washington. Senator Albert 15.
Cummins of Iowa first sounded the bugle
I of peace when, some months ago, he ten-'
tatlvely suggested the calling of it nation
al convention for tho purpose of accom- I
plishlng at least two reforms. Tho llr.-t 1
was so to reduce Southern representa
tion that the southern, or solidly demo
cratic State's should be representee! In
the lepubllcnn national convention, if at
all, only In pioportion to the vote they
cast for piesldcrit. This plan would
eliminate tho southern olllceholders as a
factor In politics and make it impossible
for any one agency,, whether that of a
president or a political boss to mass thu
.southern delegates with patronugo or
money and thus dominate or hold tho
balance of power In national conven
tion. The second reform aimed so to revls.i
the' rules of the republican national com
mittee that the' action of primaries au
thorized by State luvv in electing dele
gates to a national convention should !
valid under thu rules of the committee,
whether 01 not In accordance with the
call. It will he remembere.il that much
of tho Irlctlon of the last republican na
tional eonvcntlon was developed by the
1efus.1l of tb" national committee, octinsi
in acronlance with the terms of the call
of December. 1M1, to seat delegates who
hail be-on eh'Cte-d by primaries instead of
by conventions, as prescribed by a na
tional committee. Roosi'Ve-lt mado a great
bundle of this action and built his own
hopes laigely upon an effort to overthrow
tlie national committee and force the
seating nf several .seme of delegates,
whose I'lectlon wns Irregular, under the
rules of the nntionnl committee., although
li may huv represented the majority
sentiment of the voters of a State or dis
trict. Now that the eampalgn in over and no
0110's personal ambitions are Immediate
ly nt stake, it is found th.it members of
the' republican national I'ommlttee are not
serlou.slj opposed to the principles im
plied in the suggestion 01 Senator Cum
mins. Confercnees covering this subject
have boon held recently and it is bc-lloved
that some .iniiounce-ment with respe'Ct to
the so-en1 d (.'uminins plan will be made
soon. William Rarnes of NVw York has
lien in Washington discussing this and
ether political matters. Victor Rose
water of Nebraska, who as temporary
e.halrman ot the last lepuhlican national
convention successliiliy organized tho
convention for the Important purposes of
e hull-man Hllhu Root, Is heie. Senator
Root and Senator Crane have boon In the
thick of tlie recent powwows and one or
the otlu r of them may lie' heard from on
the sub.h'Ct before Ions- Whether the
leaders will determine that tlie time for
attempted reorganization lias nimc, it is
Hue that they are desiious of placing the
party In condition to do battle with the
ilemocratsund that these preliminary con
ferences maj he important to the future

Washington, he will be available for 0011-leri-ncc,

established In New York.
With all the willingness of the- variou
factions, outside the pronounced thu-t
paily men. to get totctlier, the task is
not so easv .i. It may look. It Is beyond
argument that the present scheme of
Southern reprise ntat.nu on the Hoot of
tlie convention Is a'.l wrong, but the
illilleultles of reorganization would not
bo endi'd If that wmng were correct.. I;
for tho Southern States would still be e.v
titled e'ach to a national comiuittc-. 111 hi
.111-I Huso committeemen under tlie pies
cut -ostein would still be entitled to their
places on the various sub-committees of
the nalioiiil committee. In other words
although their lloor representation might
ie 1 educed, tlie Southern States would
still be lepre lentoil as e-lTietlvely as ever
In the national committee, which body is
charged with the direction of the affairs
of tlie party. Nor can this latter condi
tion be remedied easily, for .1 reatrangei
mi nt of the committee Itself can lie ef
fected only by aid of the votes of the
Southern committeemen; and as in the
pa.st they have be-en found to hold the
balance of control In the comniltteo vot
ing, the job of Inducing them to surri'ti
1I1 r their own prestige and power is ob
v leiusly a hard unc
Tin- iiuestlnii of loorganlzlng tlie pri

theory that .1 few men acting as a na
tional eutiimlttue should not he permitted
to nullify the action of a whole State
taken with respect to delegates from that
State or to candidates for tho presidency
and vice-pre.sldeucy Is a sound one.
Novel tin less the political wisdom of 10
euis lias made It plain that the Integrity
of the p.uty has depended In large' mens

It Is evident, therefore, that successful
manageme-nt of a convention or a moe
ment whether representing a great mor
al Idea or only 11 political oligarchy de
pends very much upon general and priv
ates being foot free to do the best tiling
for their cause when the emergency
comes. The Idea of Instructing delegates
by popular vote to stand bv ono man 01

obedience of Instructions.

A.MilOIIV CA.N DO IT.
How can the height of a tall building
be uscei ta Ined without actual measure
ment? Very easily if you understand a
little trigonometry. Measure, a certain
dlstanre from the wall of the building
This will servo as a base which, taken ii.
connection with the subtending angle.
by a lttle liguring will give the perpen
dicular of the triangle, which Is tho height
of the building. If, however, you don 1
now enough mathematics to do this
mousute the shadow of any object ot
known height and at the same time tneus
uie tin- shadow of the building whos,
height .vou desire to tlnd, and then work
out the answer by tlie proportion of ra
tios. Thus. If a pole six feet high throws
a shadow of two feet at noonday, and a
building at the same time throws a shad
ow of li ft v feet, the building must be
three times as high as the shadow is
long, that is, I'm feet. The Christian Her
