THE CAPITAL JOURNAL, and probably every other
newspaper in America, is in receipt of a letter from
'the Leonard Wood Campaign Committee offering to fur-J

This matter is furnished free to newspapers that will
print it with the object of creating a sentiment favorable
to Wood's candidacy. It is propaganda, designed to in

News matter accompanying the offer describes
growth of Wood sentiment and how the candidate has al
ready captured various states for the national conven

lined up to put Wod across as for the people, they have
not been consulted, and the politicians are doing their
choosing for them. In direct primary states, however, it

Hanna demonstrated how to raise it. It is the way of the
politicians of both parties, and the voter is given his
choice of men chosen for them.
This year the politicians are planning not only to
name the nominees but to write the platform in advance.
The republican platform is being construccted now, by
a committee named by National Chairman Will H. Hays,
so that all the convention will have to do is to go through
the form of approving the platform written and candi
date chosen in advance which seem j to mark the passing
of that old American institution the party convention,
The people have it in their power, however, to name
the next president by forcing the hands of the politicians.
A popular uprising in behalf of any one will insure his
selection by one party or the other, or create a new party
that will sweep both old parties to defeat for the only
difference between them is that one has the off icces arid
the other wants them. It is time the people exercised

THE STRAW BALLOT.
FOLLOWING the lead of many eastern newspapers, the
dential candidates. All the avowed candidates names are
printed, together with those who are mentioned but not
candidates. Blank lines are left to write in your favor

The vote will be an index to popular sentiment exist
ing three months before the primaries and five months
before the convention. Between now and then, there will
be more or less of a re-alignment.
The straw ballot will be interesting as it will reflect
public opinion 'before it has been crystalized by propagan
da and partisanship while it is still in the making. So
mark your choice and send the ballot in.
