Roosevelt Supporters Seem to Be
In "Bad Row of Stumps" Re
garding State Ticket.
The provision relied on by the
president's supporters in section
5t03 of Cobbey's statues, under
the heading: "Division of Party."
It is part of the original primary
law enacted in 1907, but is under-;
stood as applying to general elec
tions. The section is herewith
"In case of a division of any
party, the secretary of state shall
give the preference of party name
to the convention held at the time
and place designated in the call of
the regularly constituted party
authorities, and if the other fac
tion or factions shall present no
other name, the secretary of state
shall select a name or title and
place the same on the ballots be
fore the list of candidates for such
faction. The action of the pre
ceding national convention of
such parly, regularly called, shall
determine the action of the sec
retary of slate, or the court in its
decisions. The secretary of state
may be compelled by peremptory
order of mandamus proceedings,
to perform his duty in this re
gard." It appears very plain that the
slalute recognizes the national
convention of a party as ils su
pre i ne authority, wherever the
right to use the party name is dis
puted. The logical sequence of
I his would be that any element in
the republican party that declines
lo accept Taft and Sherman as its
nominees cannot establish its
right to use the name.
This part of the law is evidently
intended to safeguard the rights
of every political organization and
compel ils members to respect I he
duly constituted authority of the
parly. - It apparently bars the
Teddyiles from having a voice in
g. o. p. affairs, because they have
bolted I he aclion of the national
