After mustering a totsl of seven tolis in Hie nations) convention he as sumes to imt on the robes of an elder statesman and become the advisor of bis party, evincing; thereby a lamentable Ignoiance of the parly procedure.

Hut unite aside fropj this phase of the argu ment Mr. Miniver hopclcHsly transgresses In an other direction. if he has any closa friend familiar with American political procedure that close friend should advise him that the party has already spoken artth respect tn the mven- ant and there is mi way to alter that pronounce ment. That Is, no way excepting the Wllaon wny In the matter I'liniiiim tolls and a single presidential terms; and that way is not accept able to republican minds. Mr. Herbert Hoover had Ills chance while the resolution's committee of the party was In session nt the Audllnrliim In 1'hlcngn Ills cause, too, was very ably arid stubbornly pre sented by Mr Murray Crane who had the sup pOPt "f Mc M I' navldson and M.

Tho IiilM la One That Must He Determined and on Ita IffnaMe iIia flu ..1.1 Point where final decision must ttlllfM the (lOVermelltal made. Whether we are In fact T. A. LATTA. It has been very frequently ai aertcd that there Is no longer a fundamental difference between the two major political parties In Amerl. W. or at least such fundamental difference hus been lacking alnco the passing of the tariff as a para mount Issue antl prior to the Injec tion of the manner of conducting our forelKii relatlona. This, we think, Is the result of only a superficial view of things political. Thin exists a great fundamental difference in the finds of American oltraam. whether that ii fferenoe is oorrectly interpreted by the two leading parties or not. That t win ther or not this nation is to be in fact vvhut It was designed to be ijj theory, a republic, or whether it is to be tlowly converted Into u pure democracy with the cer tain chaos and final fnwnfall that Is to follow swiftly on the heels of such it subversion. It requires no close annlylils of the division f public opinion on most issues to discover that the dl- islon really occurs I'. iajsc of con flicting oonooptleiM along this very fundamental line. The real Issue lots not been faced to this time be . .use 1,0th parties have In fact been more or Ires under the domination not observed, or at least fall to ex ert alarm, until their uncscapable consequences appear. That la the M. , , ., .. hi in.) nii'iiiciit. sis a iinner of Determination nation we have aporoaohed the be to Structure of the Future !HSSf ',' .lhp conver'on fj "le whether we are to retrace our stops and once again take position and benin to function as a republic. We have Woodrow Wilson to thank for forcing the decision but not to con demn as the author of our degenera tion, assuming it to be such. TlK Chli-ag.. In 111.. 01-I cat ion The Chicago convention did much to Impress this fact on the minds of all keen observers of current history and students of political economy. And the lesson was driven home by Ho- incongruities reeulting; from a clash of the pure democracy idea with the representative theory in tne manner o consututloning a national convention. It may be that the primary meth od of electing delegates to a national convention Is desirable, or It may be that the caucus and convention m. '.hod Is most dealred. There le ample room for division on that point, and division is certain to occur between those who differ as to which Is tho moat desirable, a pure democracy or a republic. Hut on ono point all must agree and all who attended thu Chicago con vention do agree the two methods cannot ho successfully employed, one nr the other must give way. There ran be no refusal to ac cept the premise that the convention or representative aov . 1. no 111 how far those Instructions held. There was not and there never can be. eb.Stiettv In a rnniirntinn ao nn. 11 it'lirn Aiiii'n are .. , ov .ofo .1,1... ., ., I to have the statement act epte 1 th,t no organization can exiai on an other bails. To dlipute pu. h tatiment is to raise from thl hjM of dlicarded Imun the old colors of the accession movement and to Juitlfy forcible itparation becauaa a minority la not permitted to die. late. That must not be. AU ConvcntdiiM Compromise. It li literally true that in. BaUagSj convention has ever yet functional in a manner acceptable to all of those participating, n is appton. mately true that none has t.r functioned In a manner to give per. feet eatiefaatlon tu any ono pr excel ami paiiltipallng. Hut lo fa this being an objection It la a trib ute to the representative the i( government, and an everlasting tml. wark against excess in any dire lion. It is quite true that pfMUoej ar4 Indulged In under the convention system highly objectionable. Km the choice Is between two etila. I erfectlun Is not going to bo at. talned In politics no matter what course be followed. And tin lion men must ask; and ansvt . r g Whether or not the conv. t n piesentutlve system d.s t . quaru mmu surely with bold tin purposes and needs of our ssteiu of government tdan a practice widen II the hall mark of a pure den racy ? It la not the purpose of the writer 10 attempt to present a case ni e for the convention system as oppn eti to the primary system. J thought is to point out that lift two systems cannot be expected to work together, und that In selectlnit between the two both parties must inevitably nnil unequivocally tuk their position on the underlay. nit principle whether wo uao to rs main a republic or become in fac a democracy. Tin? Sciuttortul Investigation. 1 he must outspoken against the primary system of electing delegate i were thnso who found taamooli handicapped by eucd a commlHaloa and those who appeared to have Dint rued boat by reason of It, Ii senatorial lnvestigaUone disclosed two material facts: To make a primary campaign costs a Kings ransom If It Is to bi made Intelligently and honorably 1: the open; thut unless It Is so made, as In the case of the Missouri del, gates, the possibllites of corruption are in no aenso reduced- If men are to offer themselves as candi dates for nn office directly, then It is not only their privilege but it Is their duly to make themselvri known to the people aa thoroughly as possible. That is un acaderiflo statement that no mnn will dispute. Hut to do that requires money and capable llcu'.enanta Nothing le.-s than a million dollars will enable a candidate for the presidency to eve:i Approach a thorough canvas of thl nation. Yet the mere statement that BUefa an amount was spent, even though no scintilla of evidence wa .ad duced to suggest Improperlety in expenditure, was destructive of tho work honorably undertaken. The public seemed Incapoble of differ entiating between one man who was not a public, speaker but possessed money and gave liberally to tin candidacy of one man, and another man who gave Just as liberally of bis time and talents as a pubhe speaker to another cause. Yet culpability, If It exists, must he as great In one case as In an other. As a matter of fact no cul- not representatives hot liutoiiiatnns shorn of all reasoning power. And the Incongruity becomes accentuated when It Is understood that there were formadal'le stale delegations In that convention who favored one man and were instruct ed lo support another. As the heat of partisan rancor Increased It be came evident to all who were theie for the primary purposo of com posing differences and nut violating the very fundamental of popular government by assuming to be dictator, that the only way out lay through a COmpromiee of not only some Issues, but also some cundi dacirs.

Autocracy was there In threatening mood. And It declaim ed noisily that the first delegate thai Proke from his Instructions and all vtbu followed him. would be pil loried before their home people. If the delegates elected to the Chicago convention under the pri mary system were totully Ineffective m the deliberations' of that oonven- only a demagogue would nlead Hut the romagoguo Is always pres ent and thrives best In a pure de mocracy. Hack to tile Itoptihllo. The Chicago experience ahowi that an Impossible and hopeless deadlock may and Is almost certain to result from attempting to worn a convention composed of ai legate! part of Whom wero elected in 4 primary; that inch a thing aa a deliberative body ao composed it out of the question; that secession would inevitably result.
