Will Be Necessary to Create a

Jackson, June 12.—Col..Power, the
secretary of the recent convention
which assembled in this city, has
received from Chairman Miller a
courteous acknowledgement of the
receipt of the list of names of the j
new executive committeemen pro- i
posed bv the convention to be voted
on in the primary June 31. Chair
man Miller in his letter does not in
dicate what course he will pursue in
regard to the names furnished. Tbe
resolution calling for the creation of
a new committee provided that those
nominated should be voted for in
tbe primary in the event tbe pres
ent committee should be reconvened
and authorize their names printed
upon the ticket. As the model bal
lots do not contain these names and
as they have been completed and J
are being sent out by Secretary Cou
nor, it is an assured fact that the
committee intends to ignore the ac
tion of the convention. The mem
bers of the convention will thus find
themselves committed to another
conventiou in September for the pur
pose of creating a new state execu
