The Young Men's Republican Club,
which has been In process or iorma
tion for the oast woek, was tompor
arily organized last evening in the
Armory hall. Roy Rltner was oiect
ed temporary president and Frank
Macey secretary. Committees were
annointed to draft a constitution, and
by-laws for the club, to chooso a
place for the next, meeting, and to
secure additional memoors.
There are now In the neighborho d
of SO members on the roll, and It 1
the Intention of the club to enroll all
of the young republicans In the city
before the next mee..ng, which wsb
Bet for two weeks from last night, or
at the call of the president. All men
over 18 years of age are to bo eligl
ble to membership.
The purpose of the club is to at'
tempt to pull the tattered ends of
the republican tangle of tho county
together, if possible, and to promote
hnrmonv In the ranks. The members
will look after the registration of the
young men, and Bee that all of thorn
especially those who will vote .tne te

Whether or not the club will
snring up in tho sunshlno of party
favor and grow nnd blossom Into a
tree of promise and usefulness
seems to be a question in the minds
of some of the old warhorses of the
party: but as the mighty oak grows
from the little acorn, so may the club
spread its sbade out over the land.
The old men of the party say they
have not been sufficiently urged 'o
put their autographs at the end
the list, and are therefore somewhat
doubtful as to the outcome for they
think that a band of zealous young
men with no experienced heads and
hands to guide their craft upon the
troubled waters of tho political sea.
will soon strike rocks on one side or
the other of the channel and wreck
their barge almost upon the launch
On the other hand, the young men
think otherwise. Thoy have tho Idea
that new pilots are needed, and
would like to see some of the ob
structions to the channel dynamited
out of existence. They will attempt
to place the mines and clear the way
lor the free passage of the republl
can ship in future years. They say
that If they all work ,n harmony they
will be able, like the little tug, to
tow the ship of republicanism past
the rocks and out Into the open sea
of success. Therefore they wish to
have no leaven of old partizanshlp la
the mass, and for tnat reason tho old
time leaders are left to form a club
of their own. Harmony Is their
watchword, and at the next meeting
this principle will be made plain at
the permanent organization.
