From San Francisco County:
"…so far as the county committee is concerned, I do not hear of their doing anything." "It is perfectly easy to understand the situation in California and that the Hughes campaign is not going with anywhere near the force and vigor that should be put into it…."
"Each committeeman was called upon to report conditions in his district, and the answer invariably was 'no literature,' 'no meetings,' 'decided apathy,' 'Wilson stronger.' " "Do not consider that an energetic campaign is being made." "If it were not for the Chronicle and some of our splendid Republican papers, the public would not be enlightened at all to the real issues and arguments for Hughes and the Republican ticket."
"…the prevailing Wilson sentiment which exists could be offset if the Republican County and State Central Committee would act in the matter. Up to this late date, they have not done one single thing to further the candidacy of Hughes…."
