It ,was the method employe 4n tho
Republican county convention In 1905
to bring about tho nomination of tho
deputies that aroused tho public Ire,
That convention was ft public ucand.il.
It was an absolutely boss-coa trolled
affair, and tho nomlimtfoiwln several
Instances woro forced through by n

that every candidate who was tho

in an open primary last May on their
Individual merits, and most of thoin
had strong oppositions for tho iiomlna

That Is tho difference between tho

FINAL REVIEW OP CAMPAIGN
Final Bumming up of tho political
situation In tho United States shows
fow radical changos from conditions
found to exist in tho first gonoral re
view pubtlshed by The Enquirer moro
than a month ugo. Strenuous cam
paigning by hll throe parties has
m'arkod tho closing wocks of tho fight,
but thcro nro no surface indications to
show on overwhelming chango of sen
timent in behalf or any of tho candi
dates. Unbiased reviews from ovory state
In tho Union show tfiat Woodrow Wil
son should recolvo In tho neighbor
hood of 400 votes In tho Kloctoral Col
lege, a Inrgor dumber than any candi
date ovor has received In tbo history
of tho country. Tho provlous high wa
ter mark Was In 1004, when Theodore
Roosovclt had 336. v1n 1908 Taft socur
od 321. In tho present, fight Presldont
Taft will receive 12 votes, acordlng to
reports; formor President Roosevelt Is
pretty certain to carry Washington,
with its sovon votes, whllo statos with
112 electoral votes aro placed in the
doubtful column, conditions being such
In the various communities involved
that the switching of a few votes either
way will land them In tho camp of any
ono of tho three candidates.
In all of tho Investigations made on
behalf of Tho Knqulror ono fact stands
m clearly, and that Is Uio linos of tho
Democratic party aro practically In
tact On tho faco of tho returns, and
on tho porcontago of changes In tho
straw ballots taken, Wilson Invariably
haa won moro votes from tho com
blned opposition tbnn ho has lost.
This Situation cloarly shows that
most of (ho dissatisfaction and unrest
apparent throughout tbo country has
been within tbo ranks or tbo Republic
an party, and when Theodore Rooso
veil tossed bis hat In tbo ring and
drew this element to his tsandurd In n
compact, coboslvo mass, tbo fato of the
organization, which thrlco bad boapod
honors upon him, was sealed.
Tho Democracy, which has stood bj
Us colors for sixteen years or humllla
lion and defeat, has no doalro to wor
ship at the shrino or now gods, while
