This bloc action, to no small extent dictated by resent- j ment of the Middle and Far "West to' "old jruard" leadership, is the grav- est cause of concern.

Too much deadwood will be found to have been washed up with the tide. The democrats are bound to rosiain much of this lost ground for the simple reason that jour majorities are too unwieldy."
