A man named Glue has recently
been elected to office in an eastern
state. We predict he'll stick.
Anyway Mr. Taft can point with
pride to the crops raised during the
fourth year of his administration.
If all those charges of traveling
with dynamite in the Indianapolis
cases are proved, it's a cinch that
the public will be tempted to do more
walking and less railroading here
That Colonel Roosevelt will dis
cover befoore very many months that
Woodrow Wilson knows a heap more
about practical life than for which
he has given him credit, there is
not the slightest doubt.
Of course Mr. Moon wants the of
fice. So does Harris. Moon thinks
that a count of five is not big
enough to offset all the mistakes that
might have happened, so he's going
to make them count it over. Harris
don't care whether they do or not.
He's satisfied with the first count.
Go to it boys, get all the votes you
can, but next time don't wait until
after election is over.
Would Never Have Happened.
Had the street light on the corner
of Fourth street and America avenue
been a tungsten and lowered to where
it ought to be, the accident that oc
curred there Friday evening would
never have happened. To be true, it
was not a serious accident, but the
city should, in order to avoid future
accidents, insist that the lighting
system be changed from the little
dim incandescent to a bright shining
tungsten. The Warfield Electric
company furnish the globes and light
for these lamps at the cost to the
city of $1.25 a month. These thirty
two candle power incandescent lamps
cost very little less than do the tung
sten at the new prevailing prices and
use far more current. In the face of
numerous objections heard regarding
thse lights, the city council could
not do a more popular thing than to
instruct the Electric company to in
stall the Tungsten and lower them
before the long winter nights are
The One Term.
(From the Ohio State Journal.)
The Baltimore platform, on which
Wilson was elected, is in favor of a
single term for the president. Al
ready an effort is being made to an
tagonize that idea, and leave the
way open to Mr. Wilson in 1916.
Better carry out the sentiment and
the platform. There is a strong rea
son for the one-term limitation.
Politics is altogether too anxious.
Better wait for a couple of years to
see how Wilson gets along. Better
wait, also, to see how the Republican
party gets along. Maybe in that
time the Republican party will get
together, which will doubtless be the
case if the pugnacious leaders are
brushed aside. Then there will be
hope for the Republican party.
Besides, it should be remembered
that Mr. Wilson is a minority presi
dent that a majority of the people
voted against him. We refer to it
in no slurring sense, but simply to
characterize the effort to neutralize
the one-term resolution of the Baltis
more convention as inopportune and
foolish. We would not mourn if Mr.
Wilson made such a good president
that he would be re-elected unanim
ously. Politics is not the reigning
consideration the welfare of the
people is. We had better wait to
see the effect of the Democratic-party
on the president.

South Dakota went for Roosevelt, but
It Is claimed that the electors are pledged
So far as mere numerical majority
goes, this Is the most decisive vote in
the history of the electoral college.
.This is partially due to the fact, how
ever, that the college is now much
larger than ever before. Washington
received the unanimous vote of the
electors, and Monroe all but one
Among other decisive results in the
past may be mentioned the following:
In 1832 Andrew Jackson received 219
electoral votes to 49 for Henry Clay,
11 for John Floyd and 7 for William
Wirt. In 1840 William Henry Har
rison had 234 to 60 for Martin Van
Buren. In 1852 Franklin Pierce had
254 to 42 for General Winfield Scott
In 1864 Abraham Lincoln received 212
to 21 for General George B. McClellan.
Grant received tremendous electoral
majoritiesbeth times, 214 to 80 for
Horatio Seymour in 1868 and 286 to 63
for several candidates following the
death of Horace Greeley in 1872. In
1904 Theodore Roosevelt received 336
to 140 for Alton B. Parker.
Yet notwithstanding his phenomenal
majority in electors and his great pop
ular plurality over either Taft or
Roosevelt, it is one of the anomalies
of the situation that President Elect
Wilson received an actual minority of
the vote and possibly fell short of the
Bryan vote in 1908. The following ta
ble shows the complete vote in a few
states and close approximations in the

Impossible to give the popular vote in
full. AH these totals will be some
what increased, but will retain approx
imately the same relative positions.
Comparing this vote with that of
1908, which wasTaft 7,678,908 Bry
an, 6,409,104, it is seen that Wilson is
about 140,000 short of Bryan's vote
and that the combined Taft and
Roosevelt vote Is more than 2,000 short
of Taft's vote four years ago. As al
ready stated, however, complete and
official returns may change these re
Wilson's plurality over Roosevelt is
above 2,000,000 and over Taft is nearly
2,700,000. Roosevelt received more
than 500,000 over Taft Wilson is
1,400,000 behind the combined vote of
Roosevelt and Taft.
Other Minority Presidents.
He is not by any means the first
president who has been elected by a
minority vote. In 1892 Grover Cleve

electoral vote, but bis popular vote was
5,556,918 to 5,176,108 for Harrison,
1,041,028 for Weaver (Populist), 264,-
133 for Bidwell (Prohibition) and 21,-
164 for Wing (Socialist Labor). In
other words, the combined vote of oth
er candidates was 6,502,433, nearly
1,000,000 more than Cleveland.
Four years earlier Mr Harrison won,
although he had fewer votes than Mr.
Cleveland. The figures were: Harri
son, 5,440,216 Cleveland, 5,538,233
other candidates, 402,411. Thus Har
rison was nearly 100,000 behind Cleve
