A Last Bitch Fight.
Certain republican and democratic
state senators have banded together
to defeat th direct plurality primary
bill. If evidence were lacking to prove
that professional politicians realize
that such a law would put an end to
their machinations, it is supplied by
the bold attitude of these senators.
They want a continuance of the old
caucus and convention because they
know. they can retain their power to
rule and ruin.
The wretched condition of political
parties- is due entirely to the fact that
professional politicians care nothing
for conditions and only for personal
gain. Every effort of the people to
take this power from the self-seeking
politicians has been bitterly fought.
It Is being fought in the state senate
more bitterly and determinedly than
ever. The bosses know they are stand
ing on the brink of the last ditch. If
they successfully pass it they will con
tinue to plot and pillage.
A direct primary law means more
power for the people and less power
for the bosses. In fact the boss will
pass out of existence. There will be
leaders, for leaders are needed, bnt
they will come from the people and
receive their power from the people.
The people will nominate as well as

Force in Politics," by Henry van

others who knew and loved the man
and his work.

party; it is in reality wider than
either party, and it is disrupting both,."

It was Bome years after this Incident
that a distinguished army offlcer was
recalled by the king from a distant
station to Stockholm to receive the ap
pointment of adjutant general, which
meant chief of staff, or, in other words,
commander In chief of the army.
General Lovenorn was the recipient
of a great deal of attention. He wns
unmarried, and many a young girl of
Copenhagen Fet her cap for him, for
he was a bachelor and in his prime,
being not yet ferty years old. Even
daughters of noftiemcn were "thrown
at his head," but he would have none
of them. One day while riding on
horseback, with a couple of orderlies
behind him, he passed a lady In a car
riage who especially attracted his fa

Just before women usually pass from
youth to middle age.
General Lovenorn returned to his
quarters to dream of the lady who had
thus Impressed him. Courted though
he was. a trusted servant of the king,
admired for his ability and courage,
yet there was a void In his heart that
needs to be filled In the heart of every
man and every woman. For the first
time In his life he had seen one whom
he thought capable of filling that void.
The next day he rode over the
ground he bad traversed before and at
the same hour, hoping that he might
again meet her. But he was disap
pointed. He would have sought her
out, but there was no distinguishing
mark by which he could describe het
la vain he looked for her in the gay
throngs of yonng people In the parks,
at the theaters, at balls. Months
passed, during which he treasured a
vision he had seen but once. Instead
of diminishing, his monomania, as he
called it. increased. Beautiful women,
not knowing of h!s predisposition, con
tinued to try to charm him, but he lis
tened to what they said without hear

a lady on his arm be came face to face
with the subject of his dreams. He
would have left his companion to fol

"I must ask for time,'- she said, "In

she sent for him.
"There Is but one thing,- she said,
"that separates me from you. Years
ago, when I was in the first freshness
of youth, I met a young man to whom
I gave my heart. He did not enter Into
my life. Our acquaintance was the
briefest, but from that day to this the

and has held it so long?"
"When I was very yonng," she said,
"we lived in a house close beside the

by a window a young man I had never

raised the sash and listened to what
he said. Pointing to two young men
