The, committee was appointed after a lengthy discussion among some of the prominent Republicans in the northern section of the state.

The several women's clubs which are setting up political organizations are indorsing a campaign to encourage the women to register. The women are coy. There is no denying the fact. That Is, they either are coy or Indif ferent, and the clubs have planned a series of pink teas as decoys for the unwary.

ISSUE (Continued From First Page.) ' peeled from the owners of the Los An Seles Times, Steffens said that Harry Chandler, the general manager, was en thusiastic and subsequently became the emissary between the business men's committee and the District Attorney. The original agreement was drafted in Mr. Listner's office on November 20 and it was hoped that the District At torney would assent to it, according to the witness. It provided that James B. McNamara should plead guilty and ac cept such punishment as the court might direct except hanging. To this, said the witness, the District Attor ney's office replied through Chandler, demanding that both men plead guilty and that both make confessions. Tele grams had been received from the Na tional Erectors' Association and other business men In the East, said Mr. Stef fens. protesting against any settlement that did not provide for the sending of John J. McNamara to the Penitentiary as well as his brother. Labor Leaders Seat For. "On November SS." continued Stef. fens, "It seemed clear to Mr. Darrow that a settlement could be arrived at which would save J. J. McNamara from the gallows. He eat down and wrote a telegram to Samuel Gompers at At lanta. Ga.. where the American Feder ation of Labor was in convention, ask ing that one of two or three men whom he named be sent here, as something important had transpired and he wished to consult with organized la bor. Asked for the names of the men men tioned in the telegram, the witness said they were O. A. Tveltmoe, Anton Jo hannsen and Edward N. Nockels, of Chicago. Mr. Steffens told of a conference with Fremont Older In which Older had professed concern as to who should be the "goat" and fear that Darrow would be "punished, as well as tne witness injured, professionally. ar row said he did not care about himself that his duty was to his client, and to save his life, related the witness. On Sunday. November 26. two days before Franklin s arrest for bribery, both of the McNamara brothers bad consented to plead guilty, although each did so without knowledge oi tne other. Steffens himself had gained the consent of John J. McNamara and the brothers had been seen by Judge Mc- N'utt and Lecompte Davis of counsel. J. J. Kept Informed. "J. J. had been kept in touch with the situation by me," said the witness. "It had been common report since the dramatic end of the McNamara trial that John J. had not consented to plead guilty until Thanksgiving Day. two days after Franklin's arrest.' Steffens' direct examination was halted by Chief Counsel Rodgers. who asked . for an early adjournment in order to prepare additional questions. H. W.

Mr. Norris made the proposal in re ply to criticism in his state and pub lished demands tnat ne support rres Ident Taft or get off the Republican ticket. "I am a believer in the recall." said Mr. Norris in his letter. "I am will ing that it should be applied to me. and if. since my nomination, my course in refusing to recognize Mr. Taft as the Republican nominee Is unsatisfactory to the Republicans who nominated me, I am not only willing, Dut i believe it IS my duty to withdraw. "Under no circumstances can I be induced, to support a man for office whose nomination I conscientiously believe to have been obtained by the corrupt and unlawful methods which 1 believe were perpetrated in the so called renomination of President Taft, and if my nomination, or even my in terest, must depend upon such support. then I prefer to remain in private life."

Dr. John R. Haynes. president of the charter revision committee, strongly favored the proposed changes. Treat ing and free lunches were his especial mark of attack. "By all means we should see that Los Angeles has an anti-treating law." he said. "I am convinced that more drunk enness Is caused by this one factor than any other connected with tie liquor traffic "And then there are the free lunches. The world over, these lunches tend to create thirst, which Is satisfied only at the bar. They are served in saloons for the purpose of creating thirst.

MAYS 'BOSSES' SELECTED WILSON Outlook Editorial Says Tag' gart and Sullivan Would Perpetuate Power. OWN CASE IS DIFFERENT Reviewing Recent Conventions, Colo nel Declares There Is Essential and Instructive Difference Between Them. NEW YORK, July 18. Two phases of the Republican National convention at Chicago are discussed by Theodore Roosevelt in editorial articles in the current Issue of tne Outlook. The "Steam Roller" and "Men Who Live Softly'- are the headlines of the Colo nel's articles. In the first the writer answers charges that "steam roller methods were used to nominate him in 1904 and again to secure nomination for Mr. Taft In 1908. In the second article the Colonel al ludes to the "respectable men, - who, with discomfort, stood behind their leaders in securing the triumph of fraud and political theft at Chicago," and scores the "other responsible men who felt no discomfort In thus supporting rascality; who, on the contrary, glori fled in their actions." Patronage Not Once Asked. "Some of the men responsible for the steam roller work In this conven tion," said Colonel Roosevelt in his first editorial, "had sought to excuse themselves by saying that they were only doing what had always been done. and especially what was done for me at the time of my nomination and what was done for Mr. Taft himself four years ago. As regards myself, the statement has not even the slightest foundation In fact. 1 never used the patronage, not to the extent of a sin gle appointment, to secure my nomina tion; I never appealed to a single poli tician; I made my appeal direct to the people over the heads of the poll tltlons and stood squarely on my record, and I received the namination solely because the people believed In me and approvd of my rcord, and were so over whelmingly for me that -the machine politicians abandoned all thought of a contest against me before the conven tion met" Contrasting the two conventions. Colonel Roosevelt writes: "There was one essential and in structive difference between the atti tude of the "big Republican political bosses at Chicago and the big Demo cratic political bosses at Baltimore. The former greatly preferred certain party defeat to my nomination; the latter were willing to accept any nomina tion rather than face certain party defeat. Case af Baltimore Different. 'In my case the appeal was made straight to the people against the bosses and the fight was won on that Issue. The case at Baltimore was wholly different. In the primaries Mr. Clark had carried more states than Dr. Wilson. In but one or two states had Dr. Wilson's cause been trium phant In a square fight with the bosses indeed, there had hardly been any fleht made along these lines. 'ine fleht at Baltimore wasnot, as at Chi cago, to eliminate the bosses and in cidentally to nominate a certain can didate. It was to persuade the bosses into themselves nominating Dr. Wilson, thus securing the perpetuation of their own control in their several states. Mr. Sullivan, of Illinois, Mr. Taggart, of Inriana, and others like them brought about Dr. Wilson s nomina tion. Mr. Murphy acquiesced at the end. Dr. Wilson's victory would not mean ths dethronement of these men; it would mean their perpetuation in power. My election would mean that Mr. Penrose, Mr. Barnes and Mr. Gug genheim would be definitely eliminated from political control of their states." Syndication to Be Avoided. In summing up his second article. Colonel Roosevelt declares that in ad dition to the professional politicians and interests, who oppose him and to the resDectable support they have from individuals who are misinformed, there is a considerable body of support from respectable men who do know some thing of the issue at stake. "Thev are men wno nna me easy. who live softly and who. Instead of feeling that their own good fortune makes It incumbent on them actively to work for betterment in the life condi tions of others, are overcome by the fear that any such effort to improve the general welfare would Jar ;he present system sufficiently to cause them inconvenience. I wish to see our less fortunate citi zens avoid the dreadful excesses of syndacatism and the like to which their fellows abroad have been prone. This can only be accomplished if our people as a whole will formulate and reduce to practice certain great moral principles which most oi us are now dimly beginning to see shape them selves from the confused welter of our business and our politics." PLATFORM! TO BE CONTRACT Colonel Says New Party Will Deal - With People. OYSTER BAY. N. Y., July 18. The platform of the National Progressive party Is to be a "contract with the peo ple, colonel Kooseveit saia toaay. just as a business man signs a contract for a fulfillment of certain obligations, he exolained. the new party would sign a contract to undertake certain well defined measures, provided the oppor tunity Is accorded to it. Colonel Roosevelt lias given nis ap proval to the name "National Progres sive" for the party. As the prospective nominee of the party, Colonel Roosevelt Is drafting a nlatform embodying his Ideas. He in dicated that he would use his Influence to avoid the twin perils of ultra-radi calism and vaguely concealed conserva tism and that he hoped the platform would be both practical and genuinely progressive. The ex-President's personal platform probably will be presented to the Chi cago convention on August 5. the day it assembles. He said he hoped to ar range a meeting of the delegates for that night to mane a epeecu wnicn will be his "confession of faith." In this speech Colonel Roosevelt will seek first to interpret the spirit in which the work of the new party should be undertaken and then proceed to a detailed recital of the steps he be lieves should be adopted. In explaining his decision of last night to abandon the trip to Kansas, Iowa and Michigan. Colonel Roosevelt said that a multitude of things were constantly coming up in connection with the formation of the party and that, although he had hoped to be able to complete arrangements early enough to make the trip, he had found he could not do so. A published report from Washington that Senator Dixon, the Colonel's cam paign manager, was at heart opposed to the formation of a new party and would seize the first opportunity to take a back seat In the campaign, amused the Colonel greatly. He said it was the exact reverse of the truth. Ralph C Otis and Day McBlrney, Roosevelt workers from Chicago, came today to tell Colonel Roosevelt that Illinois was in "great shape," ana tnat in their opinion he would carry the state. "Yes, I tbink we'll take Illinois," the Colonel said, adding that he believed their strength In the East was con stantly growing and there were ex cellent prospects of carrying New York State.
