Olson's lieutenants bickering over the bulk of the spoils now that he has turned his eyes to broader fields, coupled with the old factional differences among the democrats, have injected new zest into republican leaders. Yet, undaunted by recurrence of the old Wolf-Regan split, Congressman Elmer Ryan claiming support of a majority of the democrat party in Minnesota, said he was optimistic concerning the chances of harmonizing differences in the ranks.

Unlike two years ago when the party came out Dat-footedly for a co-operative commonwealth with specific recommendations for attaining that objective, delegates next month will omit any pointed suggestions for attaining such a commonwealth.
