The recent primary was a
hotly contested one. Probably
more heavy campaigning was
done than has been done in any
primary election since the pre
sent STStem has been in ooera
rlon. A good deal of bitterness
was injected into it in. . some
quarters. To the voter who is
not swayed by self-interest or
the love of politics as a game,
some of the things candidates
of the same party say about
aca other seem very unbecom
ing.: And when the man about
whom some of these ugly
things have been said becomes
the candidate of the party, the
unsophisticated voter is apt to
fear that the masses will take
-them seriously, and that the in
terests of the party and the pub
lic interest generally will suffer
One trouble about the late
primary was that there were
too many 'Candidates' for the
Dumber of placet to be filled. It
was a foregone conclusion that
some of them.were going to fall
short' The- primary system
lack 'one : interesting feature
that the old caucus system had.
"We xnisa the man who used to
say, after the r right man had
"been pot forward, with a laud
atory speech, which did not cost
a cesitr 1 move-that the nomi
nations be-now dosed." ' ' And
after thre or four' hands had
been raised ' halfway up, the
chairman would " declare, "The
nominations are closed." - And
then,- by the same process, the
secretary- would be Instructed

not gotten above puizling their
wits to know how they ought to
vote and why. were not always
able to see this issue so dis
tinctly. Olcott's d e claration
tended strongly to narrow the
'running to a race between him
self and Hall, the latter almost
an avowed Klan man.
! A good many Republicans
are not jubilant over the pro
bable nomination of Olcott,
some of them declaring that it
foreshadows the election of
Pierce, the Democratic candi
date. It would seem that the
' handicap Is too great to be
overcome, but It has been done
before. , Probably, though, Mr.
Pierce will not prove to be a
. ACT COVERS FARMERS
DID HE GAIN OR LOSE
The political -question of the
hour now is whether Gov. Ol
cott gained or lost more votes
by his declaration against the
Ku Klux Klan. It seemed to
have the effect to largely elimi
nate the tax " reduction and
.ether economic issues, on
which the voter's choice be
tween candidates was a good
deal of a .guess; and almost
narrow the issue to a line-up
for or against the Klan. Per
sons who ware ambitious to
shape tbe thoughts of the mass
es for them quite generally con
strued this to mean an issue be
tween the Klan and Roman
Catholicism. People who had
