A 8aniilf of the C'rltliiKin
In tlio fuel' of all the plaudits of
tho 'i)oiiulaic, the (loueral uHHertlrui
that dlrwt priniarli n have trans
ferred back to the people the powers
taken from them by tne tmeses, Jr.
Charles W. Ullot, formally president
of llnrvurd, hi-s come out flatly with
the statement that the new system Is
expensive and absolutely futile.
Dr. Kllot points out ttiat tho direct
primaries virtually rail for two elec
tions to carry the candidates Into of
fice. This simply doubles tho trouble
..f i ho voter. It is hard enough to in
dues the average citizen to go to the
voting booth once, without increasing
Iho burden. Incidentally, the cost is
T!,n real object of the primary
elections was to take the nominating
power from the bands or me misses.
The city boss bad become a remark
able American Institution. Usually
he worked mi from the bottom.
whero he did handy work In his di
vision or district, until he became a
district leader. Then he gathered
lintn himself a few mors district
leaders, who supported him. and af
ter that I hoy called him boss
There developed a gradual resent
ment on tho part of the people
against tho dictatorship of men not
nlected by them to nny office n
man who was nothing more than a
nelf constituted ruler.
And at last camo Ihn cHroct pri
maries. All the big citlfs put the
plan Into effect. Kven Philadelphia,
of "corrupt and contented" fame,
tried it. It was the now thought
movement In pollllcs, and as relorm
was rampant In the Quaker City at
tho tlmo they thought they would
Klvo It a trial. And they did. And
It worked beautifully for the bosses.
The old convention sVEtom was
done away with. Under the new sys
tem all the bosses had to do was to
nend word to Iho division lenders to
. lino up tho voters for so and so. The
"lieolei s" rang doorbells, got out I he
"regulars," and the primary election
was carried with a whoop. The "In
dependent" voter, never too ready to
run to ttie polls, now remained even
moro obstinately at home, because the
work of voting was doubled. So the
bosses hnd things their own way.
And now nlong comes Dr. Kliot
with his paralyzing decree ngaliiHt the
new reform "Too expensive and ln-
effective " It looks as though the di
rect primaries will have to go. and

beginning to regard tho system as an
