THE PRIMARY LAW.
On January 2 the books in the
various county, clerks offices of
the state will be open for regis
tration of those who are legal
voters .at the election of the
state. The 1 primaries are to be
held on April 20, next, and be
fore you are allowed to vote even
at primary elections you must
register, therefore," it may be im
portant that you get your name
on the books earlv. Moreover:
ir. is far rrmre ennvemipnt. fnr the
clerk that those who are entitled
to vote do not wait until the last
moment and then , besiege the
clerk in a bunch.
The effort to elevate the gen
eral tone of matters politic and
the elimination of personal and
selfish considerations must be
most acceptable to every honest
citizen and voter; hence, the en
forcement of the v ry spirit of
the new primary law is consider
able. There has been consider
able cold water thrown on this
law and frequent prophecies
wafted about to the effect that
it could not prove of any good
Without a public sentiment
strong enough to give this or any
other law a "square deal" it is
certain to prove nil.
, There may be weak places un
covered when this law is enforc
ed, but it is only by giving it a
:f air and impartial test that
will be possible to determine if
:it is advisable or not to retain it
To this end it becomes the duty
of us all to assist in a straight
forward enforcement of it next
It is the spirit and intention
of this law that the DeoDle shal
decide in the matter of selecting
a United States Senator and the
state legislative members are
simply to ratify the will of the
people as expressed by the. peo
ple m tne general election

the peoples's choice. From this
it will be seen that the people
have greater" responsibility as
result of the new primary law."
