Committee of 48
Chairman Says Contests Have
Narrowed to Two Party
Fights in Seven States,
New York, Oct, 28. J3y A. P.) Tho
committee of 4H, functioning a. a lib
eral party, announced through J, A.
II, Hopkln., chairman of It. national
executive committee, that in .even
state, contests have already narrowed
down to a two party fight "w'ith the
chance In favor of the progressives."
The states, he said, are Pennsylvania,
Houth Dakota, North Dakota, Idaho,
Wisconsin, Nebraska and Delaware.
Analysis of the contests, Mr. Hop
kins .aid, that In Idaho, where two
congressmen and a state ticket have
been named, It is a neck and neck
race between the democratic and the
progressive, candidates. In Pennsyl
vania, where the progressive, have
nominated two candidates for United
fitntes senator and a secretary for In
ternal affairs, and In South Dakota,
where a state ticket and three candi
dates for congres. have been nnml
nated, the race Is between the repub
lican, nnd the progressives.
"In Wisconsin, where a full ticket
lias been presented,' 'he said, "It J
a walk over for the progress e asso
ciation tickets, the democrats having
lost their standing ns a legal party."
In Nebrnska the composite ticket
consist, of a progres.lv for congress
and lieutenant governor,, a progres
sive democrat for governor and a pro
gressive republican for the senate, he
"In Deluware," he continued, "Isith
tlie republicans and the democrat, are
thoroughly disorganized by reason of
the obnoxious tax legislation recently
Mr. Hopkln. said that In ome of
these .tates tha new party tickets
have been endorsed by the 16 railroad
brotherhoods and -various labor or
ganisations. Red Flags Reported
