to abolish the referendum vote as a
means of choosing the annual convention

THE STATUE OF LIBERTY ENLIGHTENING THE WORLD, which was presented by France to the American people, and
which stands majestically on Bedloe's Island, overlooking New York harbor where every immigrant, or visitor or American returning
from foreign lands, may be inspired by its towering presence is the greatest thing of its kind in the world. Bartholdi, the great French
Sculptor, created it as his masterpiece, and the New York World performed a notable public service in raising the big fund needed to
build the splendid base on which the statue rests. Myriads of Americans have made prilgrimages to this shrine of Liberty, and climbed
the winding stairs to the windows which' -are placed in the crown which adorns Miss Liberty's brow. Until a few years ago visitors were
allowed to climb up inside the gigantic arm, to the torch, but this is now prohibited. The big package of Washington Crisps is, likewise
the biggest thing of its kind iri the world Washington Crisps strengthen and sustain the world which Miss Liberty is forever enlightening.
