JXDIFFEREXCE TO PRIMARIES.
THE Now York Times is probably
Justllled In Its claim that more
voters pnrtfclpated In the recent
ettfltorn primaries than have ever be
fore taken n hand In nominating the
candidates of either party, in other
words, tho old caucus and conven
tion never interested any largo per
centage of the total voting popula
tion. Tho Times biivh:
Jn some comments upon tho
.result Hindu by Massachusetts
newspapers surprise Is expressed
.nt the smallness of the primary
voto; it Is construed us Indicat
ing u lack of Interest. It ap
jioars to us, on the contrary, that
. tho voto was surprisingly large.
Tho totnl voto polled for gov
.uruor last year was 423,000.
Tho grand totnl of the votes
tpollcd by both parties in the prl
.inarlos this year was IS 1,0 4 ft.
'The republican primary voto
-was a llttlo loss than GO per cent
of tho republican governorship
voto, but only about 30 per cent
of tho democratic governorship
voto turned out at tho primaries.
Certainly it cannot bo asserted
kthat under tho old-fashioned pri
mary nnd convention system n
larger number of voters would

tendance nt tho primaries.
Hut after all It Is a matter for
serious consideration that fewer than

enough to go to the polls last Novem

lint offering a plausible oxplann

Editor Times: 1 understand tho
town of Mnrshilold Is to have a new
name. Is not this move a little pre
mature? In my opinion It would have been
better to canvass the whole bay
country on this subject, to discuss
the matter at length, and then de
cide on n name for the great city
which will be built along both shores
of Coos liny a name most ttppro
prlate and acceptable to all.
Of course, If the people on the up
per end of the bay desire their town
to be called "Coos Hay" or "Mllll
coina." no one outside has n right
to object but to expect either nnmo
to be adopted by tho people of Coos
Hay. Is unreasonable, aud It will not
be done. Those who are destined to
Inaugurate the new conditions on
Coos Hay, comprising people who nre
already representatives of tho bay
and ninny who are not yet oven citi

Ono grent objection to tho nnmo
of "Coos Hay" besides tho above con
sidered Innpproprlatcness, Is that
tho word "Coos" seems to ho a cor
ruption of tho Scotch for "cow," or
the Slwnsli for something unknown.
In fact, tho word Is Inelegant, but
If It were n poetically Bounding In
dian name, with n pretty meaning,
like "Mln-iie-hn-hn," for Instnnce,
the cuso would he far different.
And "Mlllicomn" well, this word
must have been coined by some fel
low who lost his Job.
Thoro Is plenty of time to consider
this matter, to suggest nnmes, nnd
to decide Intelligently, before there
Is necessity for any change In present
names on tho Hay.
1 wo names I would suggest, ns n
stnrtor, either of which would ho
appropriate, quite poetical It you
please, and also uncommon.
"Oregonlu" Is a pretty nnmo,
though perhaps too similar to the
nnmo of tho stnto.
