than with a candidate with taint of radicalism that might causr the bulk of the nations voters to turr to a Democratic conservative While some of them foresee a thin party they do not fear it They arc honestly convinced that there arc more Republican voters in the coun try than Democrats today and thaf the formation of a third party wouli draw almost as many Democrat ar Republicans and when those element have been abstracted from both par ties the resultant strength of the Re publican party in each of the impor tant states would still be sufficient to carry the electoral votes for thr

a third party mean an easy victory Of course they arc assuming that Hiram Johnson if de feated at Chicago will raise the en of fraud and the familiar slogan of and bolt theconvention am start a third
