a man's position and make it easier
to havo solid delegations voted
Foraker is expected, now that
the national convention call has
been Issued, to write his promised
letter to Wnlter lirown proposing
his plan for this primary. Truth
to tell he and Dick also seem to
be a little puzzled over the methods
to be followed. In short, all theso
politicians who have so long op.
posed the enactment of anything
like a real promary law find them
selves entangled In the perplex

wrote on Uio statute books to fool
It now develops that the
trlct, as well as tho stato conven
tion delegates may bo choson by
primary. Tho usual national Re
publican committee call provided
that district delegates should be
chosen as was the congrebsmnp
from that district and in Ohio
this Is usually by district conven.
This provision was eliminated
from the call ju3t Issued by tho
Republican national commltteo. In
lieu thereof a provision was Insert.
ed permitting tho solcctlon of dis
trict delegates by primary whero a
state law permitted.
It was plainly Indicated last
night that tho Taft managers will
favor the selection of theso dls.
trlct delegates by primaries. Tho
congressmen In tho same districts
can be nominated by conventions,,
If they wish. Tho primary proposi
tion for tho selection of district
delegates Is simpler than for the
