POWER OF NATIONAL (KM.
M1TTKK
Tl.??? national connnitte-c has
power to rceogiil/.?? this right oro
the ?part of the States, inasmuch
as in its quadrennial ?all for the
national convention it prescribes
s|.*-c?*lll< ally the character of the
cri'ilentials which the delegat??~
must possess. But It can inert*
ly recommend in the matter of
changing- the basis t?f represen?
tation, this being a matter over
which only the convent-ton lt?elf
now lias power. Nevertheless, a
. miu-ndatioii by the national
. o:umiitee would have great in?
flueiM*e with tlie next convention.
and it is bellevi-d that any method
of improving the present system
which \t m?.j suggest would
event ualiy be approve?! In i<?
ii?*iieral way from the ensuing
convention.
It would seem at first blush
that this would not tie a diffi?
cult basis upon which to har?
monize, and such Republican
regulars as have learned of their
progressive colleagues' plan are
disposed to take It up for serlou
coiisii!. ? itlon. The present basis
