If *a delegation shpi:ld happen to be in-strucled for a man who could not possibly win, if it stnyed by its instructiona it would have about as much influence, and would be given about as much consideration, as a phonograph; and if it didn't stay by the instructions then why should it ba instructed? There arc, br at least there have been, conventions to which a certain delegation might well be sent with hard and fast instructions; but rresidential convention is not one of them. To such a convention there ought to l>e sent the biggest, broadest ablest most honest men a p.-.rty can persuade to go, with ijo other instructions than to name the best and biggest man available. •'.'F<Jr all I can hold cold dead hand, is what I KSve gii^en away."

He derlarecl mor? than two years ihaf the wool schedule was too high and .should be reduced. He re^ieated that statement last summer.

That report is now ready and in sending it to Congress and recoramonding that the wool schedule be revised in compliance with the facts it presents, the President is wholly consistent with all his ""crmcr declarations. ; Somebody down in Oklahoma wlio is interested in having the method of electing the State P.oard of Agriculture changed,, recently tiled a petition initiatfqe a law to carry such change into effefct, as in the statutes of Oklahoma n.Tjle and provided.
