Chairman Hllles of National Commit
tee Issues Statement.
New York, Oct 31. Charles D. Hll
les, chairman of' the Republican na
tional committee, gave out this state
met regarding the vice presidential
candidate on the Republican ticket:
"Tho national convention which met
In Chicago in June delegated to the
aatlonal committee the power to fill
vacancies on the national ticket. The
death of Mr. Sherman, the candidate
of the Republican party for vice pres
ident at the coming election, makes
It incumbent on the national commit
tee to nominate u candidate In his
r-lace. That nomination, however,
can not possibly be made prior to the
flection next Tuesday. Such a nomi
nation can, properly be made only
after dun anil raasonabla notice to all
thc members' tho committee. .Such,
'" l".1 therefore, manlftsUyJmposslble
tc hold such a meeting prior' to the
election. - ' 'V .
j "Meantime, no difficulty or Incon-
j lenience arises to the voters at the
. election next Tuesday, because t1")
I votes to be cast then are for elector
and not for candidates for either pres
ident, or vice president, and the death
of Mr, Sherman therefore does not
affect tho validity of the election of
the electors.
"I have called a meeting of tho na
tional committee to meet upon, the
12th day of November, In the city of
Chicago, at tho Auditorium hotel, at
18 o'clock noon, to select, a successor
f to. the late James 8, Sherman as eah-
dldate of the Republican party for
