at a presidential ticket.
And yet a bare majority’s right to
change the rule is hardly, if at all.
disputed.
Why, then- does not the candidate,
who has a majority (but not a two
thirds' majority) of the delegates in
his favor 'at the beginning of any
given convention, use his majority at
the very outset to have the two-thirds
rule changed—whereupon his less
than two-thirds majority will be suf
ficient to nominate him?
The only answer is that he cannot
afford to be accused of changing the
rules of the game in his own inter
est.
Consequently the change must be
made after the nomination, with a
view to the next convention; not be
fore the selection of a standard bearer
or while the fight over the selection
of one is In progress. And after tha
nomination has been made, all bands
are in a desperate burry to leave, and
the matter Is not attended to.
In 1920, for example .the rules com
mittee of the Jeffersonian convention
which nominated James M. Cox un
animously adopted a resolution offer
ed by Senator William H. King of
Utah, to substitute the straight ma
jority principle at the 1924 convention,
for the two-thirds’ requirement.
"But in the rush to get away, Im
mediately following the vice presiden
tial choice," relates Senator King, "It
was forgotten completely, and not on
ly never was acted on by the dele
gates generally, but even missed being
reported out of the committee "
Had it not been for this oversight
in 192 Q, the prolonged deadlock in
New York four years later would
have been averted and the Democratic
party, whatever the result at the polls,
probably would have escaped several
vears of ensuing disorganization.
If there Is opposition on Capitol Hill
at present to a change In the rule. I
have been unable to find it among
Democratic politicians there but
there is inertia.
In the past such objection as may
have existed undoubtedly existed
imong southern Democrats, inasmuch
is the two-thirds requirement permit
ted them to exercise a veto power over
’he preponderant number of northern
delegates. Now. however, being con
vinced that Governor Roosevelt wtll
enter the June convention with a ma
jority of the votes (but possibly not a
‘wo-thirds’ majority) and being also
iatisfied with him as a candidate, they
ieem not unwilling to acquiesce in a
modification in the rule, which they
consider ultimately inevitable anyway
md which presumably would insure
-he New Yorker’s nomination. Stjll,
he Rooeeveltitee hesitate to urge it,
>elieving that the governor will suc
ceed in mustering two-thirds by the
lecond or third ballot at the latest
md fearing to be accused of a recqg
lition of weakness already.

Timothy 1:15. "Christ Jesus came into
the world to save sinners.”)
My PR- ALVIN E. BELL.
Jesus had no sympathy with his
people’s ancient prejudices against
other races. He refused to make a
“detour" around Samaria, as they
were accustomed to do, because of
their hatred of the Samaritans. So,
when he wished to go northward from
Judea into Galilee, “he must needs
pass through Samaria."
At nopnday he came with his dis
ciples to Jacob's well, near the village
of Sycbar, and being thoroughly
wearied with the journey, Jesus sat
by the well while his disciples went
into the village to buy food. A wo
man of the Samaritans who came with
her pitcher to draw water from the
Well was amazed that he should ask

of her the favor, "Give me to drink.”
She expressed both this amazement
and her own prejudice by replying,
“How is it that thou, being a Jew,
askest drink of me, who am a Sama
ritan woman?” And John adds the ex
planatory note. “For Jews have no
dealings with Samaritans."
It was a tactful method of getting
at the deepest spiritual needs of a
sinner that Jesus used here at the
well when he asked the favor of a
drink of water from this led up to
this woman's spiritual needs and the
resources he offered to satisfy the
deepest longings of her soul. “Every
one that drinketh of this water shaH
thirst again: but whosoever drjnketb
of the water that I shall give him
shall never thirst, but the water that
I shall give him shall become in him
a well of water springing up into
eternal life.”
The Spotlight on Sin.
Having tactfully gotten the worn-
an’s attention and aroused her inter
est In her spiritual needs Jesus threw
the spotlight of his divine insight
down Into the darkest recesses of her
moral life by spying, “Do, call thy
husband, and come hither." When the
woman sought to evade the issue by
saying, “I have no husband.” Jesus
revealed his full knowledge of her
past and present life by saying, “Thou
Huidst well, I have no husband: for
thou boat he-’ five husbanda; and he
whom th'-u a >w hast ia pot thy
band: tin.: bast thou aald - y . Her
amazed reply, **Bl r I perceive that
thou art a prophet.' waa virtually a
full confession of her sin. But she Im
mediately tried to change hte sub
ject into an argument qt the relative
merits of her own or his place of wor
ship. Jesus replied that not the place
but the spirit was the essential thing
in worship; "God is a spirit: and they
that worship him must worship in
spirit and truth.”
Jesus Reveals Himself.
Having made her see herself in her
sinfulness, Jesus’ next object waa to
reveal himself as her Saviour. The
woman spoke of her expectation of
the Messiah or Christ, saying, “When
he is come, he will declare unto us
all things." And is not this just what
Jesus had been doing with her Use?
So it was easy for her to believe him
when he replied, “I that speak unto
thee am he.” Her glowing faith in her
new found Messiah and Saviour
caused her to forget her water pot
and rush back to town to tell her
friends of the Christ. As a result of
her testimony, many were converted
and acclaimed him “the Saviour of
the world.”
