met & Arizona smelter. If the rate for
power can he made satisfactory and
the company can afford to supply it.

would have to "be aCTou"5Te one, owjng to
the fact that during important opera

ed to name the new party the "People's
party" and to adopt as the emblem a
star, significant of the fact that New

on the flag.
This meeting of the adherents of the
People's party was acdressed by dif
ferent orators who declared in various
degrees of expression the policy of the
new party, viz: the right of the people
to have a voice in the making of the
laws and the control and management
of the new state, as represented by the
recall. Initiative and referendum, direct
primaries and the election of public of

pointment at the pleasure, of the gov
ernor. After a harmonious meeting lasting

inated as candidates for delegates to the
constitutional convention, and as there
are only two tickets in the field it is
expected that the contest will be both
spirited and close.
