To secure polltlcnl power by force or by fraud ought to be as disgraceful In the eyes of the public lis to secure money by force or fraud. I can't conceive any plaunlblo excuse which Mr. Sullivan can make for remaining on the natlonul committee. If a body of men la unable to rid Itself of leadership of u man like Sullivan, who acek to control party organiza tion to advance their corporate ln teresta. It. might as well dissolve. While I ain anxious to give Mr. Sul livan h chance to retire without a fight, it Is probably just as well that ho refused, for If wo must fight to purify party organization, the sooner It begins the better." Tho statement, adds expressions of coincidence and approval of a vast majority of rulo league, and of Messrs. Dunlap, Hainey, Thompson and Nelson.
