WELL CONSIDER CONVENTION Subcommittee Recommends Holding Session llext Year. MANY LEADERS ARE PRESENT Basis of Representation is Discussed k Informally. JONES PRESENTS CHICAGO NOTE Zt Saya Majority Will Not Lonir Allow Minority to Rule, and Pre aenta Argument for lle unlon of llepulillcnua. WASHINGTON, May 24.-After several hours' dlscUBBlon the executive committee of the republican national committee to day tentatively agreed to call a meeting of the national committee sixty days after the adjournment of the extra session of congress to determine whether a national convention shall be called to consider changes in basis of representation. The session of tho cxecutlvo committee was devoted almost entirely to a dis cussion of the need for a national con vention. Committeeman Warren of Michi gan made the motion to call a meeting and practically every member Joined In the debate that followed. Thero was no expressions of disapproval, the only questions were those of detail. Practically unanimous sentiment devel oped In favor of holding the convention next year. The executlvo committee" will recommend that plan to the national com mittee. While a majority of the execu tlvo committee expressed the belief that the national committee could change the basts of the southern representation mid change tho party rules, they ugreed that the weight of a party convention should be put behind any reorganization plan. Senator Jones at first urged an Imme diate convention, but finally agreed with the others for next year. Former Senator Sanders, national com mitteeman from Tennessee, declared tho republicans should wait until "they heard the echoes from tho country" on the achievements of the democratic admin istration. A policy of co-operatjon between the republican national committee and repub lican congressional committee was agreed on, and It was determined that a cam paign (headquarters would soon be opened here. This follows a plan recently adopted by the democrats. Cannon and Jonea Attend. Senator Jones, holding a proxy from Earn Perkins, national committeeman from Washington,- sat with the executive committee and presented the ideas of Senator Cummins and the progressives seeking an early national convention. . Many republicans of prominence, includ ing former Speaker Cannon and former Representative McKinley, manager of the Taft preconvention campaign, lingered about the room where the committee sat. The question of choosing delegates by state primaries was not discussed at great length. Chairman Utiles and somo others contended that a congressional dis trict had been allowed to choose Us own delegates In any way it saw fit, notwithstanding provisions for a state primary. v "The party has insisted upon right of congressional districts to select their own delegates and a reversal of 'that policy would foist tho unit rule on us," said Chairman Utiles. "This was the point at tssuo In the California case in 1912. The' rlgtit' of a congressional district to yote In a republican national convention for tho candidate of its choice has never been denied. It was affirmed in tho con vention of 1S76 and again in 1S80. The latter convention rejected the untt rule. This is the fundamental question and not to bo confused with the recognition of delegates in primary elections." Communication of Conciliation. Tho letter from the conciliation com mittee signed by Senators Cummins, Jones and Crawford and Representatives Crampton and Rogers, and Joined In by v Representative Anderson and. former Governor Hadley of Missouri, sets forth a report of the progressive republican" conference In Chicago nnd asks for "a meeting of the .republican national com- mlttee In the near future to act upon suggestion made .by a great many re publicans that there be held during the present year a republican national con vention." Setting forth the reasons for thte re quest the committee says: "We believe that an overwhelming majority of the republican party have reached the conclusion that the basts of representation in our national conven tions is not only unjust bt contrary to' the fundamental principle of representa tive government. Assuming that the will of the majority in any organization ought to prevail. It must be a real, not a. fictitious majority. An actual majority vrlll not long submit to an actual minor ity. The present system enables a mi nority of republicans to control national conventions, dictate party nominations and determine party declarations, and however praiseworthy may have been the motive for Its original adoption.

TO LEASE SYSTEM Una Section ObJeota.to Referendum, nellevlne. Present Lavr Should De Enforced Until An other la TUa.de. X8AN FRANCISCO. Cal., May 24.-Res- olutlons published today by two powct- ful San Francisco labor organization make Certain two things with reference to California's alien land act: First, that organized laborers will seek a substitute measure by Invoking the initiative, on the ground that the so called Webb bill Is not strong enough. Reference to the initiative will not, delay the present act from, going Into effect cn August 10, Sufficient signatures to call for an election are easily, available wlthqut going outside San Francisco. Second, that another section' of organ-' lzed laborers will seek not only to In voke the Initiative, but will circulate pe titions for a referendum election which, It called, would prevent the Webb bill from going Into effect until the election was decided, wjilch could not be untU November, 1914. Objection la to Leases. Favoring the application of the refer endum, as well as the initiative, are. the Asiatla Exclusion league, Olaf Tveltmoe, president, and the San Francisco Build ing Trades council, which last Thursday night adopted resolutions approving tho stand of the Astatic Exclusion leagde. Both agree that the present law is' "a defective piece of legislation, defeating Its own purposes, becauso It permits three-year leases Indefinitely of land In California by aliens." In opposition to this recommendation the Ban Francisco Labor council, with 200 delegated from the Building Trades council iii attendance, unanimously adopted last night resolutions that the Initiative be Invoked for a substitute law, but that the referendum bo not In voked.

If his estimates are correct, the atti tude of the remainder of organized labor cannot Influence the result; there wilt be a referendum election and tho Webb bill (Continued on Page Two.)
