"Another consideration, and one es
pecially worthy of note, is the fact that
before the people of the state this year
the Republican party has acquitted it
self with especial honor. Its nominees
for state offices have a just right to ex
pect the united support of the party in
this great Republican city, and every
one well knows that unwisdom in the
local conventions would have had a
most depressing effect upon the Repub
lican prospects in the larger arena. So,
therefore, the notion of the Republican
nominating conventions is sucti that all
Republicans and all good citizens can
contemplate with entire satisfaction.
In some respects the contest in Penn
sylvania and in Philadelphia this year,
preliminary to the great national battle
of next year, is of exceptional import
ance; and it is, therefore, the part of
political wisdom, no less than because
the public interests demand it, for the
Republican party to acquit itself most
worthily at this time."
