The republican primaries for
Polk county will be held next
Thursday. The primary is the
first step in the exercise of the
right of sufirage, and under our
system is an important- one.
Though one may legally get on
the official ballot by petition,
that method is not often resort
d to, and under the prevailing
custom, the primary practically
settles the question of candi
dates. The primary was origi
nally intended as a medium
through which the mass of vot.
ers might express their choice
nf pandidfltes. Honestly used
they serve a party purpose.
Abused as they sometimes are,
the source of party disruption.
Primaries are sometimes worked
, in the interest of certain mea
sures or candidates. Candidates'
sometimes bring with them into
the primaries an artificial sup
port that defeats the majority
wishes of his party and thus be
enmes a nartv burden in the
campaign to follow. This is a
common practice with the can
didate who seeks the office rath
er than waits for the party to
call upon him for his services.
It is a practice to be avoided if
party success would be achieved.
It is a practice to be guarded
against by republicans next
Thursday. Let there be fair
and open primaries in every
precinct. Give every one en
titled to a vote, a voice in the
deliberations. Exclude all
neither legally nor morally en
titled to a vote, from the con
vention. Tolerate no form of
jobbery nor underhand meth
ods. Fearlessly set upon po
litical duplicity and trickery
wherever it shows its head. Let
the delegates elected to the
county convention next Tues
day, be men that will represent
the wishes of the rank and file
of the republicans f Polk coun- sonal
ty and there will bo no question
about party success next June.
The terrible danger that at
tends the handling of dynamite
was forcibly set forth in the re
cent explosion that caused the
death of Curtis Baker and
Gilbert McCabe and did other
damage. Such accidents are
liable to occur any time with
those who handle the explosive
and a law requiring those who
handle dynamite to take out
license would be in keeping with
public safety. Since thedangers
attending it are not confined to
those who handle it but includes
all lives and nropertv in close
proximity its use should proper
ly come under the regulation of
the law. It is entirely too great
a risk, to allow' one unfamiliar
with the nature of dynamics or
reckless in its use to carry it
along the highways or have it
in his possession at all. By re
quiring one to pass an examin
ation before a competent author
ity as to his knowledge and cau
tion with explosives, the public
would be protected and it would
necessitate very little additional
cost to these who have occasion
to use it.
