THE STATE LEAGUE.
President Jiverett Wurrca Tulks of the
' Work Jlclng Hone.
Everett Wnrren, of Scrnntnn, presi
dent of the Htate League of Republican
clubs, came to Pittsburg Sunduv and ia
nt the Moiiongohela House, miys the
Pittsburg Times). Major Warren intends
Joining General D. H. HantliiBs und his
party on their tour .throuuh Western
Pennsylvania this week, and will afford
members of the league a chance to hear
their leader. Major Warren said that
Rt thr- last convention of the league in
Harrlsburg in September, there were
twenty-nine counties represented. It Is
nis ambition to have ench of the sixty
seven counties of the state represented
by at least one club before hln term ex
pires, and his work this week will be
toward that end. Said he:
"We are trying in every way to get
the clubs actively to work in this cam
palgn. We wish to get the members in
touch with the regular party machln
fry, and not have the leugue a fifth
wheel to the Republican wagon. To
this end we have urged the members to
put themselves under the direction of
their respective county chairmen. We
want the league to become more of a
lactorln the cumpalgn than ever before.
Not that it is necessary to rouse any
more enthusiasm. The chief trouble
seems to be to find any enemy to
concentrate against. It is hard to en
force the necessity of combined effort
when everything is coming our way.
The people seem to feel like getting up
nnu going 10 me polls alone."
