to believe that progressivism some
how involves the interests of those

The difficulty there is that the repub
licans also promise ito do something
for the farmer and the mechanic In
the actual state of the case it will be
difficult for. Mr. White to bring it to
the place of prominence he evidently
desirea it should occupy." The Times

'Chairman White's Paramount Issue,
fsavs: "Candidates cannot mane is
sues. Party chairman surely cannot.
Which statement, however, is pre
faced by the following: "Since It is
not the province of a campaign chair
man to notify his party, embarrass
his candidate or accept his policies
from his opponents, we cannot but
regard the first important utterance
of George White of the democratic
national committee as being of doubt
ful expediency and probably defective
accuracy. Progressivism, says Mr.
White, will be the paramount Issue or
the campaign. The league of nations
naturally will be one of the greatest
issues that is embraced in the pro
gressive principle. 'Even more ques
tionable is his statement that no iron
bound contract was framed between
candidate and the president and that
Governor fox" pledges of fealty to
his party and its platform are sub
ject to a certain amount of elasticity."
The real sufferer in all of this con
flict of opinion as to whether tne
democratic party stands for the league
of nations is Governor Cox, the can
didate. He has been compelled to go
into hibernation at the trail s end to
avoid being torn to pieces ty tne two
factions, one of which says we stand
for the league as Wilson wants it. and
another declaring that of course there
must be reservations to article a. un
der some kind of truce patcneo. up
some where the language with which
reservations are discussed among dem
ocrats was changed during the week.
Nullifying reservations have become
clarifying reservation. The really
discontented ones appear to be the
followers of President Wilson, who
already are charging Governor Cox
jith hnvinir broken the pledge made
at the White House to stana squareiy
on the Wilson league principle.

agree to unite under one banner.
The socialists reserve the right, of

to put a state, county and legislative
ticket of their own in the field.

conference. The conference commit
tee will meet again at the labor tern
