LET DUNNE GIVE THANKS. 1$
Gov.; Dunne wins out at today's pri
mary he shouldn't feel sore at Boss
Sullivan. On the contrary, he ought
to pin a rose on Roger fojf1 coming
out for Brinton. Before Roger pulled
that bgne there was darned little enJ
thusiasm for Dunne and no pep in
the scrap. Nobody cared much what
happened. - But the Brinton play
kicked up a regular fuss. Labor got
busy swatting Brinton and worked
up some enthusiasm ,f6r Dunne. It
also threw a scare into the local
Tammany candidates who want to be.
elected and need the labor vote in
their business. Thank Roger, Guv.

pulled off at Battle Creek, Mich.,
where they make people believe saw

BACKING UP TO VICTORY.
Now that a railroad strike has been
averted; and all of us are working,
i eating, sleeping and living as usual,
it is easy enough for Hughes to de
nounce Wilson for "yielding to.
force." More hindsight. Had Wilson
kept hands off and let' the "strike
1 come, "Hughes would now be de
nouncing Wilson for the dire calam
ity that had struck the country. Wil
son should have prevented Germany
from overrunning Belgium. He
should have prevented the. sinking of
the Lusitania. He shpuld have rec
ognized Huerta. -He should have
done everything he didn't do and
nothing he did do. That's about the
substance of the Hughes- hysteria.

THE RETURNS FROM MAINE
By holding her state election in Sep
tember .little Maine attracts more at
tention than she deserves. The fig-
urers in both the old parties always
pick the returns to pieces looking for
consolation or hope. Maine went
G. 0. P., of course. That was ex

ing the most ojf it especially over
the defeat of Senator Johnson. But
Democrats say that there is Demo
cratic hope in the fact that the state
didri't go G: 0. P., by 15,000. How
ever, you can figure it several ways.
Republicans prefer the vote" on gov
ernor, which, gives them something
over 13,000. Democrats prefer the
vote on Sen. Johnson, who was beat
en by only 10,000, or thereabouts.
As. Sen. .Johnson supported Wilson
policies in the senate, his vote would

where state issups would cut more,

for Republicans to measure Wilson's
popularity by the vote on any Maine
