In accepting the nomination
Roosevelt appealed to the people
of all sections of the country, regardless

new party, one of the cardinal

when a call is to be issued for a
state convention in Illinois and

Later, probably in August, a
national convention is intended.
Roosevelt in accepting the
nomination said he did so with
the understanding that he would
