PRIMARY FAILS TO
KEEP BOSSES OUT
Sullivan and Penrose, Long
Called Dictators of Old
School, Win Places.
CONSERVATIVES IN LEAD
Bull Moose Accused of Deals With
Democrats to Weaken Repub
lican strength, Even If
Fight Is Dost.
BT CARL SMITH.
Candidates for United States Sena
tor. to be voted for in November in 32
states in the first general election
atnce the adoption of the direct vote
amendment, have- now been named in
nearly all the states, and a review of
political tendencies becomes possible.
Apparently the fact that Senate
eeekers must this year in every state
pass under the test of popular vote,
Instead of dealing merely with Legisla
tures. has made no marked change in
the personnel of the prospective Sena
tors. All the present Democratic Sen
ators who have sought renominatlon
have secured it, and Republican mem
bers have fared almost as well, Bris
tow, of Kansas, and Crawford, of South
Dakota, being the exceptions.
Conservatives Are Returned
In the nominations made in the vari
ous states will also be found in either
party an assortment of progressives
and conservatives. In one state the
scale has turned one way, In an ad
joining state the other way. On the
whole the conservatives seem to have
secured some advantage at the prt
maries. This is evidenced, on the Re
publican side, in the elimination of
Senator Bristow by ex-Senator Curtis,
in Kansas, and the defeat of Senator
Crawford by Representative Burke in
South Dakota. It is emphasized again
on the Democratic side by the success
of Representative Underwood, who
overthrew Hobson in Alabama, and the
victory of Senator Smith, renominated
In South Carolina over Blease.
One notable accession will be made
to the ultra-progressive forces in the
Senate after next March if Governor
McGovern, the Republican nominee in
Wisconsin, is elected In November. Mc
Govern, it will be remembered, was the
Roosevelt choice for chairman of the
historic National convention at Chicago
in laiz. io is practically the only
strongly progressive survivor of the
recent Wisconsin primaries, in either
party. La Follette Republicans and Wil
son Democrats having equal cause to
mourn. As McGovern stood for Roose
velt, and not La Follette. he is not a
particular favorite with the Wisconsin
Senator, but as McGovern has preserved
his regularity, he will no doubt draw
the La Follette support.
Sullivan Loosens Hornets.
Illinois presents one of the most
spectacular contests. Here it was that
Roger C. Sullivan, biscuit-maker, pub
lic service manipulator and boss, de
nounced by Bryan and opposed by a
Federal office holders' alliance, swept
the field at the primaries and became
the Democratic choice. Since then i
great noise has been set ud in the Re
publican and Progressive party camps,
each claiming that It is the only one to
oeieat suuivan. senator Lawrence Y
Sherman, leading the Republicans, is
recognized as a man of character and
talent. So Is Raymond Robins, the
third party candidate, an ex-Democrat,
wno nas unaertaKen the Job of per
euading Illinois that not only is SuHi
van all that Bryan has called him,, but
that Sherman is reactionary and
Senator Cummins, of Iowa, easily a
winner at tne primaries over a banker
conservative, nas a more difficult task
ahead of him to dispose of Congress
man Maurice Connolly, the Democratic
nominee, cummins has had one ev on
the Presidency for many years and to
lose nis seat at this time would be to
him a cataclysm. The Progressive
pariy nas named a candidate, whloh
will assist Connolly by drawing awav
votes that Cummins otherwise would
Bnll Moose Aid Democrats.
It may be said, generally, that the
jouii aioose party remnant Is nerform
ing the same office in numerous other
states. By diverting and dividing the
Republican strength, it will no doubt
assist the Democrats to hold, or to win
several seats in the Senate they other
wise surely would lose. Whether or
not. in spite of this assistant Democ.
racy, the Republican wave will be suf.
ricient to hold up its strength in the
fcenate, remains to bo seen.
It may be that the Bull Moosers have
.cope or electing a Senator In two of
three states, but this must be the sum
ot any reasonable resume of the situa
tion and the most likely prospect is
that they will not elect any. Their
most conspicuous candidates are Fran
cis J. Heney in California, Herbert
Knox Smith in Connecticut. Ttavmnnri
Robins in Illinois, Albert J. Beveridge
jjl mmoiia, v luiur luuruocn in Kansas,
Oifford Pinchot in Pennsylvania and
Charles A. Prouty in Vermont. Robins,
Murdock and Pinchot are the ones
picked as likelv to come nearest to vic
tory at the finish stake.
In one state the Bull Moosers have
made a straight-out alliance with, the
Democrats and the latter naturally ex
acted the United States Senatorship on
their side of the deal. This is in Utah,
where Reed Smoot has gone on his
standpat way so long that to stop him,
and the Mormon support behind him,
seems the forlornest of forlorn hopes.
The Demo-Moose fusionists have James
H. Moyle as their candidate, a lawyer
nd a Democratic wheelhorse of Utah.
Reformers Suffer Shock.
Certain reformers who have cher
ished the belief that direct primary
nomination and direct election of Sena
tors would drive the Sulllvans and the
Penroses out of "public life have suf
fered a shock. At least Sullivan and
Penrose, who have been held up to the
public gae aa twin political iniquities,
have won the first round. Sullivan
came first in Ilinois and It was even
easier for Penrose, who achieved his re
nomination for the Senate at the Re
publican primaries In Pennsylvania. To
defeat Penrose now appears almost Im
possible, though an effort has been
mad to unite the Independent ele
ments on Pinchot by withdrawing the
Moose candidate for Governor and
throwing whatever strength he pos
sessed to the Democrats. Votes for
Pinchot in return is the manifest Invl
tatlon conveyed by this move.
Ohio's fight was primarily interest.
Ing, outaide of Ohio, in th fact that
x-Senator Joseph B. Foraker, who be
came odious to the progressive ele
ment la his later years, failed to "come
back. barren G. Harding, who was
once defeated for Governor, is the Re
publican leader there, opposed by Tim
othy S. Hogan. Democrat, now Attorney-General
of the state, and by Ar
thur L. Garford. Progressive, a manu
facturer, who was the first Moose can
didate for Governor two years ago
Ohio will suffer loss whoever wins, for
its present Senator, Theodora E. Bur
Ington. Burton declined to make a
fight to return.
In Connecticut, where nominations
were made by convention, the conser
vative elements triumphed distinctly in
both parties. Senator Frank B.
Brandegee carries the Republican ban
ner and Governor Simeon E. Baldwin
is the Democratic choice. Baldwin was
a candidate for the nomination for
President when Wilson won, and he
also possesses the distinction of having
been savagely attacked by Roosevelt
for one of his decisions when on the
bench. Herbert Knox Smith. Commis
sioner- of Corporations when Roosevelt
was President, is- the Moose nominee.
There is a doubtful fight In Callfor
nia, made more complicated by Gov
ernor Johnson's campaign for another
term. Congressman Joseph R. Know
land won the Republican nomination
for Senator, and hae a worthy foeman
in James B. Fhelan. Democrat, million
aire and a business man of character.
Francis J. Heney is the Progressive
nominee, and the part he will play is

SIMPLE WAY TO
Stop Falling Hair and Itching
There is one sure way that has never
failed to remove dandruff at once, and
that Is to dissolve it, then you destroy
it entirely. To do this. Just get about
four ounces of plain, common liquid
arvon from any drug store (this is all
you will need), apply it at night when
retiring, use enough to moisten the
scalp and rub It in gently with the
By morning most. If not all. of your
aandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will completely
dissolve, and entirely destroy, every
single sign and trace of it. no matter
how much dandruff you may have.
You will find all Itching and digging
of the scalp will stop instantly and
your hair will bo fluffy, lustrous, glos
sy, silky and soft, and look and feel a
nundred times better.
If you value your hair, you should
get rid of dandruff at once, for noth
ing destroys the hair so quickly. It
not only starves the bar and makes it
fall out, but it makes it stringy,
straggly, dull, dry. brittle and lifeless.
