llenn Voter In All Statea
lor Until Icntlom
WASHINGTON, Dec 16.-Dy unanimous
vote the republican committee late today
decided the committee should determine a
now basis for representation In future
national conventions. Informally it has
been agreed that the action ot the na
tional committee would be referred to re
publican voters In all the states for rati
fication. A resolution providing for the calling
or a special convention of the republican
party was voted down 3S to 14.
Senator Cummins appeslod for the call
ing of a national convention. While ho
did not discourage the alternative propo
sition of referring & reorganisation plan
to tho states, he believed that such a
plan would not Impress the public gener
ally ns strongly as a convention.
"Tho vital question before us," said
William Barnes, Jr., of New York, "is tho
election of a republican senate and house
of representatives In 1914. I favor hold
ing a national convention for the pur
pose of showing through such a gather
ing why the republican party meets the
needs of the people. Tho republl6an party
haa nothing to apologize for.""
Hoy O. West ot Illinois did not believe
tho national committeo had a legal right
according to precedent to make the pro
posed changes. Ho declared, that the re
publican party was a voluntary organi
sation and added that while ho opposed
the holding ot a special convention ho
would vote for one It It became apparent
that tho chango In representation and
rules for the conduct of conventions could
not be mado In any other -way.
Charles A. Splcss .of New Mexico
pleaded for 4 convention next year for
tho purpose of-adopting a platform. He
said what tho party needed now was a
platform which, would "not tell what the
republican party has dono for the coun
try, but will tell what tho democratic
party Is now doing to the people."
Howell of Nebraska, Itcmmel of Ar
kansas, Estabrook of New Hampshire
nnd Senator Bradley of .Kentucky op
posed a convention. The latter declared
that a convention which wolda bring
forth a, platform at this time would re
sult not only in uproar, but In defeat.
Warren of Michigan declared himself in
fayor of a convention.
