and then he referred to the Itussian peo
ple, and for two or three minutes the
throng went mad again.
Mr. Malone brought up the liquor ques

amalgamated convention of a dozen
political parties. He said that the way
to get rid of tho Eighteenth Amendment
was to urge Its enforcement.' According
to Mr. Malone goodness and mercy censo

Malone miinaged to hold his 'audience
for a time, but they grew restless and
called for action. They 'demanded the
platform. They demanded the chance to
nominate. Purley Chrlstensen, the Salt
Lake giant, returned, and resumed com

applauded. The delegates roared for nc-

by a great chorus of screams. and ap

got silence.
"If possible," he resumed. "His mess

yet that we have combined, but he says
that he cannot at this time accept the
nomination. He will not. he doesynot,

A scattered clapping ot hands greeted
this. There was much disappointment,
but soon' they wcro cheerful again and

Chairman Chrlstensen. himself a mem
ber or the radical wing of the conven
tion, was helpless between tho rules and
his Inclinations. The day was saved for
the time being by the appearance ot the
rtport ot tho Joint committee on organi
zation and procedure. It proVed to bo
the Labor party's ultimatum. Ths Com
mittee of Forty-eight had surrendered.
On labor's terms they agreed to dis
band and become pan of the Labor con-
ention. Here briefly Is the pact:
"The Labor party of the United States,
ond the Commlttoe of FJrty-6lght shall
unite In a new political party.
'The new party's national organisa
tion shall confine its activities during
1M0 to the election ot a President Vice-
President and members of both houses of
the Congress."'
Women on Committee.
The basis of organization and control
of the new party shall be as follows
"A national committee composed of
three members from each State, nt least
one of whom shall bo a woman. shall.c
(elected. This national committee shall
select nn executive committee of nine,
which executive committee shall be tn
charge of the 120 campaign. .The na
tional executive committee members of
each State shall be the. executive com
mittee of the organisation In such State
tn so far as the purposes of the national
campaign are concerned.
"The existing National Committeemen
of the" Labor party shall be deemed
elected to Uie National Committee of the
new party at least one of tho National
Committeemen In each State snail be a
member of the Committee of Forty-eight
and .nt least one shall be a member of
tho Labor- party. Any vacancies now
existing shall be filled by Joint caucus
of the resrjectlve States, to be held at
or Immediately following the convention
of the new party. Any vacancies later
occurring shall be filled by tho execu
tive committee." .
And while the convention was .still In
the throes of the ensuing furor. Mr.
Record was forced to read the platform
agreed upon by the Joint resolutions
committees. Obviously he did not want
to do It But they forced him and they
hooted his deprecation ot nationaliza
tion of mince. Imposition of capital
tax and the Insistence by the Laborltes
of tho wholesale adoption ot the Plumb
plan.- He said the committee could not
igree on' these planks, but whllo he was
speaking the rest of the committeemen
sent in word that they had surrendered
and that the Committee of Forty-eight
or wnat was lert of it agreed, be
cause It had .to, to nationalization of
mines, and the Plumb plan plank.
"Surrender! surrender!" screamed the
delegates. 'To hell with the Single
Taxersi Well adopt their platform and
the capital tax plank too. To hell with
.quJbbUn--Jet's get together. Threw
the co mm It Uf ? out Let's do business In

And Mr. Record, obviously dog tired
after the fighting session of the com
mittee a session that had lasted all
