with the organisation of the new
party, it is said by leadiug Repub
licans. If the progressive from
Wisoonsin advis a the progressive
Republican of the West to stay in
the party and support the nomi

Republicans in line. Though
with what has gone bbfore it is ex
tremely doabtfnl if LaFollette

Colonel Rootevelt's nomination
at the Orchestra Hall convention
Saturday night in Ghioago, will
in the opinion of many leading
Democrats, so greatly weaken Mr,
Tafi's hold upon the rank and file
of ths voters of the party that it
will likely make him the le im
portant of the three candidates.
Republicans who are not swayed
by personal prejudices, naturally
realize that this split in the. par

when they take note of the large
