the repnblioan machine diotated the
ohoioe of the delegates sent to the re
pnblioan convention and the democrat
ic machine dictated the choice of the
delegates to the democratio conven
tion. Suoh a thing as the peoplo get
ting into the game and ohoosiug their
own delegates never entered the head
of the wildest enthusiast. Yet at the
very first, trial of the direot voting

smashed into smithereens. And the
maohine of the other party, although
it was wise enough to get back of a
candidate who has shown surprising
strength in other sections of the coun

himself and had all of the so-oalled
"practical" men of Baltimore baok of
him, yet meets with a more than re
spectable opposition an opposition
