There is but one position for. Judge Scully to take as judge of the county court, in charge of elections and that is to go after vote frauds no matter by -which polit ical faction they were committed. All courts should be non-partisan, of course and non-factional. But the court that is responsible for the conduct of elections should know neither friend nor foe in prosecuting election frauds. The thing to do is to stop election frauds no matter whom they help or harm. The same rule should hold good for the state's attorney and all other pub lic officials having anything to do with the administration of the law. ALLIANCE AGAINST WILSON.
