'WHY THE Bans COMB HIQH.
A correspondent who writes to
flThe Times in a tono of simple com
mon sense that indicates possession
of information whereof ho speaks,
tolls some truth about tho high cost
Tho prico of eggs has gone sky
rocketing, he says, because the cost
pf living for hens has gone up
there. That's all there is to it. If
t costs 20 cents a dozen to raise
eggB when chicken feed costs on tho
basis of 100, then it costs twice as
tnuch to raise eggs when feed and
everything else goes to u basis of
200. Eggs arc in the same base as
milk. The trouble isn't with Brin
dlo or Biddy; the one can produce
ps much milk as ever, tho other is as
willing to lay and likes to cacklo as
?rell as ever. But Brindlc canH give
down unless she's fed, and Biddy is
reticent about laying if she is
fcungry, or has had her head cut off
nd been put into the pot.
It is a fact, of the commonest
knowledge to ppople with any op
portunity for knowledge of such sub
jects, that dairy herds are being
old off at an alarming rate by pco
plo who discover that "there is no
profit in raising milk, and good
Bioney in raising other things on
the farm. Hens are being sold or
killed and eaten by people who dis-
Bvcr that it doesn't pay to feed
iem nt present prices of feed. To
"evile the cow and tho hen, or ac
cuse tho farmer of being a robber,
doesn't help a bit. It's a condition,
frilE NBXT HOUSE AND ITS
In the membership of the next
House of Representatives will be a
Socialist, a Progressive, an Indepen
dent, ami a "Progressive-Protectionist."
They might not seem a highly
impressive group, in a body with 435
in umbers. Yet it is quite possible
that in their hands will lie the power
to determine whether Democrats or
Republicans shall organize "" the
House, control the Speakership, and
dominate the committees.
Seemingly the Democrats hnve not
a majority in the House, which is
213. They are likely to count 215,
according to the latest reports; so
they will need some of the members
of this group of political nonde
Bcripts in order to organize.
Controlling the House is not the
eamp, game it was a few years ago.
The Speakership is not the thing; it
is the Committee on Ways and
Means, whose members are elected
by the House, and which nnmes tho
committees of the House. There arc
at present twenty-two members of
,Wnys and Means, eight Republicans,
and fourteen Democrats. In a House
so evenly divided as the ncxtjwill be,
the dominant party 'would have to
divide this committee on the basis
of 12 to 10. Should it prove that the
independent group possesses a bal
ance of power, those four members
might easily dictate their own terms;
they could all insist on places on the
Ways and Means Committee, if they
Jiked, and thus get a very big part in
making up the committees; or, they
could make terms to their advantage,
pnd get whatever else they liked.
Lord Randolph Churchill once
pretty nearly bossed the British gov
ernment with n party comprising
four members. The despised inde
pendents may boss the next House.
THE FUNNY FOREIGN COMMENT
Our Britistk and German editorial
friends, who went to bat before they
were called, and struck out by com
menting oH'the election results when
they thought Hughes was elected,
find that the joke was on them. How
ever, they were in no more uncom
fortable scrape than a good many
American publicists of greater or
less, caliber, who were lure too soon.
" The comment of tho foreign press
'suggests, on the whole, more of ig
norance about American conditions
than anything else. The Germans in
Germany displayed fear lest Mr.
Hughes, who is quite unknown there,
.might be dominated too decisively
by Colonel Roosevelt. The British
prpss made the painful mistake of
Voicing some of the spleen that has
commonly been repressed, and a
number of newspapers made com
ments on President Wilson that they
would be glad, now, to have left un-
mudc. Still, on both sides of the
North Sea, the observations indi-
Vated a very real concern about the
nttltude of the American nation, and
n sincero desire tnac tins country
might continue friendly.
Germans in Germany commented,
on the whole, very much as Ger
rnuns in America voted: turprisini'ly
friendly to Wilson. There luir, been
dovelonhur in Crrnny r. 'vi
friendlj one toward tho President,
especially sinco tho submarine raid
off tho Now E Innd coa8t whlch
seems to havo convinced Germany
that there wasn't much daneer of
America getting seriously resentful,
no matter what indignity wcro im-
posed. British comment unfriendly
to Wilson was projected .from a
theory that the United States ought
to havo been more actively and cf- College but that Have different con
fedtivfcly friendly to the causo of tho ditions surrounding their qualifica
allies, and that Mr. Wilson wns re- tions for voting. Alabama has a
sponsible for its insistence in "the population just a little less than
strict letter of neutrality.- I California or Iowa; and on tho basis
Responsible official pcoplo in the 'of population gets twelve electors,
warring countries have maintained while Iowa and California havo thir
extrcmo reticence. Their cxlrcmo teen each, because they have slight
care about making any expression is ly moro pcoplo. Suppose, however,
reflection of the feeling that the, that these three States had clcc
timo is at hand when America will tors in proportion to votes cast. In
be a more importnnt figure, in con
nection with world reorganization,
than it has been in wartime.
THE PRESIDENT'S TRIUMPH
President ''Wilson Is re-elected,
with 272 electoral votes in his
column and a chance to gain a few
more on completed and official .re
turns. But the probability is that
in tho conclusion the total will stand
Wilson 272, Hughes 259. As 266
electoral votes wcro needed to de
cide, the election proves the closest
ever held, except in those coses in
which the Electoral College failed
to clcctj at all, and the House of
Representatives had to select the
It must be set down as u personal
triumph for the President. His
party has lost heavily in the Senate
and House. It is probablo that the
Democrats will control the new Sen
ate, but they seem to havo lost the
House. They surely would Have lost
the Senate as well, if the country had
been choosing an entire new Senate,
instead of only one-third the mem
bers of thai branch. So the pro
portions of the personal expressions
in behalf of the President arc more
impressive-than perhaps they have
ever been for any President. It is
mere conjecture thus far as to how
much Mr. Wilson ran ahead of his
ticket, in the country as a whole;
but in State after State there is a
monotonous iteration of the report
that the national ticket led the Dem
ocratic State ticket all the way from
a few hundreds to many thousands.
Gentlemen who, in the tensity of
excitement over the closest Presi
dential election in a generation,
emit loose talk about frauds, cor
ruption, contests and tho like, have
been doing neither the country nor
their parties any good. The country
is going to accept the result in good
faith. There has been no confirma
tion of any allegations jibout cor
ruption, cither in the casting or the
counting of the ballots. The Demo
cratic management made charges,
before the polling, that now sound
curiously hollow and silly. The Re
publicans were getting ready, they
said, to buy the election. L.ater,
when it became apparent that the
result' depended on a group of very
close States, they charged that the
Republicans were getting ready to
steal it. A result which shows the
Democrats victorious, with the Pres
ident running far ahead of his party
strength, indicates how little ground
there was for either accusation. The
appearance of Federal judicial of
ficers in conferences which aimed at
attempted interference with the
States business of canvassing their
own votes was in exceeding had
taste, nnd worse. Federal authority
has no right to intrude itself in this
affair. Each State has its own ma
chinery, and each State is the ex
clusive authority over tho .counting
and canvassing of its vot,e. The
threat of Federal interference wns a
vicious perforamnce. There was at
no hour the least reason to suspect
that the result would not be honestly
reeflctcd by an honest count of the
In tho conclusion of the matter, it
must be said that President Wilson
has curried the country, and that
the Democratic party and its policies
have been denied a vote of confi
dence. POPULAR AND ELECTORAL
The observation is heard very of
ten, in timeB when Presidential elec
tions call attention to the eccentrici
ties of the Electoral College
system, that it would be better
to have the President chosen
by direct popular vote. Ideally,
perhpt it would. But this
country is not 'governed under an
ideal system; and it does not require
a bold person to protest that the
'Electoral College system is fairer
than n direct popular vote would be.
Each State is permitted to de
termine the qualifications of voters
within its own citizenry. Thero
never has been a time from the be-
ginnings when qualifications for vot-
ing were anything like uniform
among the States. When theCon-
stitution was 'adopted, universal
manhood suffrage was by no means
the rule. Many States had property
and other qualifications).
In it union of States, it tvas
agreed, the fairest method. of ap
portioning influence in tho Federal
CS vonui'cnt wi . ."i ihv ba. it, yf
population of the States. To place
It in proportion to Iho number of
votcrs ,n tho stnt0 would bo unfnir
because tho Stato that was most
liberal' in giving, tho ballot to ita
people would .have a long advantage.
Tho situation may bo illustrated
by taking thrpo' States that havo ap-
proximately tho samo population and
tlie same strength in tne Electoral
1012 Alnbamn cast 104,000 votes;
Iowa cast 465,000; California cast
576,000. Iown would havo had four
times as much voice as Alabama in
making a President, and California
Ave times as much.
The disparity is much greater
when comparison is made between
Alabama and California as they vote
today. Alabama denies the vote to
half its men the black ones; Cali
fornia givcB it to all men and all
women, bo, this year, on tho basis
of votes actually cast, Iowa would
have about four times tho influence
of Alabama, and California some
thing like eight times. It would al
most eliminate the, South from real
importance fh tho choosing of a
President. In 1012 tho total vote of
ten Southern States was consider
ably less than that of the single
State of New York. To cut down
their voice in the selection of a
President would bo manifestly un
fair; more than that, it would seri
ously endanger the devotion of such
States to tho Union.
Results attained through the Elec
toral College system arc, on the
whole, much more fair and represen
tative than would be tho results from
a popular vote so long as the
"popular" vote varies so widely as
SURPRISES IN THE VOTING
One of the early signs that some
thing astonishing was in the politi
cal atmosphere, was the vote of Mil
waukee in the Presidential primary
early in the summer. President Wil
son received an overwhelming in
dorsement from the popular vote
then cast. That he should receive
more votes than all other candidates
for Presidential nominations, on all
other tickets, was an eye-opener. It
made a good many people marvel.
The most German city in the country
seemed willing to take cspccini trou
ble to indorse Mr. Wilson. One ex
planation was that the solidarity of
the German opposition to Wilson had
driven all the rest to support himu
a more plausible was that there was
no "German vote" when it came to
voting, and that the Germans 'di
vided as always.
Now comes the election, results
with a list of such eccentricities, not
yet nearly completed. Wilson car
ried St. Louis, one of the greatest
Germnn centers; the Republicans
carried Cincinnati by a very low ma
jority, that city being nnother Gor
mun center. The Germans are very Is announced for showinc ut Cran-
i n t. ...a vtui lldnll's Savoy neM Sunday, As a sup-
strong in Omnhn, yet Nebraska goes
Democratic, though Omaha's Ger
man vote was counted likely to be a
powerful factor against Democratic
success in the State.
New Hampshire requires explana
tion that is not at all obvious. If it
hasn't gone Democratic, it has come'
so near as to make iU almost Demo
cratic. Doubtless the. explanation
dates back to the State's revolt
against the old Boston nnd Maine
regime which bossed it for many
years. Under Churchill, Bass, and
others, the protest took form; there
came an awakening; the State acci
dentally chose a Democratic Senator
four years ago because of the Re
publican split; there was war pros
perity in its industrial centers, and
the rural population may be assumed
to have been influenced largely by
the kept-us-out-of-war argument.
Looking for surprises, again,
who would have guessed, after rend
ing the sort of literature that has
given us our impressions of Alaska,
that it would go dry? Well, it is
now claimed that every town in the
Territory went dry, and that prohi
bition had one of its most sweeping
victories there! Doing this, Alaska
turned its back on "Jim" Wicker
sham, the most loyal, useful, effec
tive representative that any Terri
tory ever' had in Congress and
elected in his stead a brother of the
"Same Old Bill" Sulzcr! Truly,
politics is a great game.
On Juh 15, say, it would have
been hard indeed to find a political
prognosticator who would have be
lieved the women's votes would win
for Wilson. It seems they did. Wil
son was against me Aiitnony amenu-
