been rife as to what tbe Silk's would do
about it. On the one bund It was cuttmed
and with reason, that that select and emi

back on tbe work of tbe oouunlttee ap
pointed by thilr couventiou; on the other
band the well-kn own kicking proclivities
of the animal wan urged as a reason for be

Through the oourteey of the Committee

I understand it, la wae deetred for tbe sake
of our own ere Jit and past pretentions.
that there should be no element of our tide
of tne party pat to the disadvantage of op
posing when heuoTable opportunity of
fered, tbe reuuiou of the party and future
Joint action, and tbe securing In (bt future
from tbe whole party one committee. This
proposition catenates from a convention
and a committee really of eur own crea
tion a convention to Which the vvale
Bepublioan party wet Invited f tend dele
gate. There baa always been grave doubt
In my mind ae to the propriety and reg
ularity of eur committee, becanse the call
through which we were ore tied eomavft-
teeroen, that which emenated from tbe
Mercantile Library Ball Committee, did
net, as Judge Oattsebalk clearly stated In
bit letter of Oet. Htb, WI. invite all of
tbe Republicans of the elty to participate
in the primaries or ! the convention
and reitrioted the call to
those only who supported the plat
form and the notion of the Jttlerson City
Couventiou, and therefore prevented a
arge portion of the party from participat
ing. IIow many of n would go up and
awear in order lo vote under such a call ax
that that we supported tbe action ami
platform of the Jetferson City Convention?
This clearly, at Judge Uottscbalk stated
and aa shidget Kruui and Bombauer con
curred, putt ut to tbe dlnadvanlage of not
being a duly repretentatlve body of the
whole Republican party, and maket us
represent, at they said of oar committee,
only a part of tbe party.
Now, ae I have stated, this put ut at a
dltadvantagt, and If persisted in by op-
potiug Joint aoMon cannot fall to create
prejudice against ut aa a committee, but
will hurt the patty and will deny ut rep
resentation through any separate action of
ourt In any future convention, state or
national, after Joint action has been, at 1
am satisfied It will be, agreed upon; and 1
will add, ought to be agreed to, by the
Committee ef 28.
At representative! of any part of the
party we ought first to oonirldef tbe tuocets
of the party and what it wtntt. Iam
satisfied that the 24th Ward wtntt Joint ac
tion and the passage of the bttft of Joint
aotion at proposed. Therefor I request
you to vote Itr H, aud to utt againtt riny

This would destroy ail chance for divl

two or three Republican parties in St.

the majority rule aud abide by it. We
want no one to attempt to rnle tbe party
but the party Itself. Neither do we want
any act ef ourt to destroy :tbe party. As

The Repabltoan majority In tbe Conyen

do hereby represent that it was tbe pur

We alto, as a constituent part of said
ctuavention, make the request and recom

several committees, do vote for said basis
for re-union. This for hie purpose of
having but one State, District, and City
