At a meeting for the renegade "Conservative" ticket of the People's Party, the first speaker is Dr. J.M. Benedict (who is a member of the People's Central Committee for Salt Lake County). He complains that the regular People's convention is "influenced by previous manipulation." Benedict adds: "He was opposed to that unity produced by the bulk of the people doing as two or three men directed."
