"Our Presidential Electors, under the
law, are selected by the candidates for
the Legislature chosen at direct pri
maries, ' the statement continues.
"There is a wide Vjlvergence of opinion
as to whether candidates for Presiden
tial Electors can by petition be put
upon the ticket by a party designation.
or if thus put on the ticket can be
voted for in a single group, and there
are many who Insist that the only party
designations tnat can be used are re

It has heretofore been determined
that those candidates for the Legisla

progressive shall agree. If they are

Roosevelt for President.
Double Precaution Take.
"In addition to making the fight for
candidates for the Legislature in order
that electors favorable to Roosevelt
shall be nominated, petitions will be
circulated for the purpose, if it can
legally be done, of putting Roosevelt
electors upon the ballot in any event.
"It was also determined that repre

to be held next month should be elect
ed by the delegates and alternates who
attended the Chicago convention and
that a full quota from California should

'There is no occasion for a third

made by Bruce Dennis, chairman of the

day, to the i numerous Inquiries that
came from over the state.
"Oregon has spoken. She Is a tro

are named for almost every office In
the districts, state and eountles. Sim

committee packed a convention is no
cause for Republicans m Oregon to de

where the great backbone of Repub
licanism in the Nation refuses to in
dorse the National committee's action.
The Republican states which do the
