The election Monday was a memorable one
in the history of the state and county. The high
water mark in republican majorities was reached
and the passing of the direct primary nominating
law and the local option law is epoch making.
The manner of naming candidates has been
revolutionised as will be found when the direct
primary is put in operation. The loca option
law is founded on the majority rule, which is the
basic principle of our government, and extends
the application of that rule to the various sub
divisions of the state county, district and munic

One of the most interesting and gratifying
features of the campaign just closed has been the
admirable work of State Chairman Frank C.
Baker. Originally chosen for his business ability,
wide acquaintance, tactful address and his pos
session of means and leasure, he has developed in
action a remarkable amount of energy, ability
and skill. He has correctly apprehended the
true issue as the endorsement of President Hoose
yelt, and has especially bent his energies to har
monizing the party with excellent effect. Through
his personal letters to voters, he has induced
republicans otherwise disaffected to get into line
for the republican ticket, especially legislative
nominees. Mr. Baker's original appointment was
made without his solicitation, but his signal suc
cess abundantly justifies the confidence of those
who recommended his selection. Having estab

and half the republicans to fight, remarked an
