Washington Dispatch to Greens
In a circular sent out from But
ler, Pa., under date of November
10 and addressed to the delegates
to the national Republican conven
tion of 1916, Progressive Republi
cans notify prospective delegates
to the convention in 1920 that
“Theodore Roosevelt is to be tho
next nominee of the party, unless
the Republicans desire another
term for the Democratic nominee.”
Circulars have been freely cir-
cujated in North Carolina. In fact,
it is said, nearly every delegate to
both the Republican and Progres
sive convention at Chicago last
June has been furnished a copy of
the circular and been urged to give
his views now and prepare for the
biggest political battle ever pulled
off for 1920.
