composed of delegates selected from
the several counties according to the
number of votes polled for the office
of Justice of the supreme court at the
last general election and that each
county should select ' its delegates
either by holding a primary election
and a county convention, or bv tht
county central committee electing Un
delegates. The majority of the mem
bers of the county central committee
were of the opinion that to call upon
the party throughout the county to
hold primary elections In their pre
clncts for the purpose of selecting
delegates to a county convention ant',
then calling upon the county conven
tion to select the state delegates, wai
imposing a useless burden upon tht
party and its members, and especial);.

Consulting with their constituencies
tnd so It was resolved that the cen

lelegates until each member had re
turned to his home and ascertained
