The Republican Conference Must
Help the Yoters to Get a
Square Deal.
The RepubllcaB wmference wMch wlll rMeeaihld
bera to-morrow will represent. in essetiee. the pWB
ent control of tlie Itepnblicnti parry in this state. a
commendable effort has heen made to linve advo

party in nttendan.e. N'OTertheleaa, ln a body arhlch
ls approximatcly nn uiionVlal state convention. as
ln the rejrularly eleetod Btate eoarentloa, the acttre
party workers and those in charge of the party ma
chinery must outnumber other elements. 'i'lieref.-re.
whaterec lajgralhi from this coaferenea must be
Judged, and inevitably wlll be judged. by the public
as the declaration of policles and princlples of tha
existing Republlcan organlzation.

Ihe way to do that ii erophatically not the way
thal has been foDowed la tha last ttaraa or fooi
years. The voters feel whether wlth justi.e or BOt
ls lmmaterlal so far as results are concerned that
they have DOl had a square deal frmn the Repub
Ucaa party. II b* ttnai they bad evidence of a de
sire to pive ihein whal they themaelrea would admll
ln he a square deal.
Tha eeter, individiiaiiy and collei'tively. is n?,t un
i.-asonahi... His politlcal ideas are comparatlveiy
viniple. He wHiils a party organization built froiu
the boitom up. not from thc top down. as he kaowa
it to be at pitngoat He wants law* safeguarding

The public was ediKated to this staiidard by

Wlth this in mlnd. the conference can do the Re?
