We do not have the complete fig ures for Oregon, nor for Ohio, but the returns from the other states show 1,388,887 Republican votes cast, and these same states In 1908 on president cast 2,253 159 Repub lican votes. They show on the otner hand only 702,000 Democratic pri mary votes, where 1,643,206 Demo cratic votes werVtasf for presfffeat. in 1908. " What does such a party compari son indicate? Are m jueniocraia apathetic? Are they indifferent to the primary principle? Topeka Cap ital. " From reliable source comes the information that under the primary, system now la vogue, many Demo crats voted for Roosevelt In all the primary state, as many of them vot ed for Stubbs two years ago in Kan sas. This undoubtedly explains the variance In votes cast by the two po litical partlea. What the defenders of the primary should be more concerned about Is the fact that only about half of the voters of either party attended the primaries, which were established toj cure all the evils of polities and at such an ej-j7mol-3??sA ttt' those who pay tne taxes, is naraiy seems pay tne taxes. wn.. - if the majority of the people, as wished for the prlmaary but that; tv has been fostered upon them by de- gift of grab have need it tor theltrl own preferment. BACK TO THE SOOT. The people of Kansas have an o& ect lesson put before them by tjhe. Standard Oil Company. It baa awea the general tmpveaslea that tueJi oil Is the rapidly coming fuel for heaidug plants and even for factories: awL toe railway tralaa. . But the aet eX the Standard Oil Company of removing the oil burners from under tta fur naces in the Sugar Creek, refinery near Kansas City this week tx order to substitute coal grates opens the subject for a new light. The action of the Standard, taken because coal la cheaper fuel, con fession that their advertisement of oil being a cheap fuel. Is a mistake. The Standard can get more for Its oil selling It for other factories to use than it will make by burning It In its own furnaces. If the Standard can't afford to burn oil how can other companies which have to pay a great deal more for It than the Standard afford to do so? Ottawa Herald.

New York World: We have always admired Mr. Roosevelt for his JwdN .ii tmnr.ranunt. his exoulsite sense of justice and his exjiraerdlBarjr serf- control, but there are times when his moderationof speech becomes a rtce. For example he made a pablte statement yesterday In which be .aids "A vote for Mr. Tar is a roie ior the bosses: it Is a vote for Lonmer, for Penrose, for Ouggenneim, ror.war. Balllnger and for all the rest." This is a rldieulous understate ment. The undeniable ract is inai a vote for Mr. Taft Is a vote for the McNamaras; It Is a vote for Rlche- eon; it Is a vote for Sidna Allen; it la a vote for the Coatesvllle lynch ers; It is a vote for Captain Kldd and the lady that chopped up Gulden- suppe, and for Beattle and for Ned Lyons, the bank sneak, and . ror j "Bllnky" Morgan, who is also dead, and tor Paddy the Pig and the Black Hand, and for murder, arson, burg lary, piracy, embezzlement, grand lar ceny, treason and a bad corn crop. Mr. Roosevelt ha. no moral rignt tp aacrlflce the progressive cause by trying to conceal the truth about the president. Duty above friendship.

Eve still deserve, a mon ument at the hand of an aescend ents. for the habit ot eating fruit has survived to thli day,, and who would be willing new to forego the benefits ef the great discovery of Eve's that fruit whether apples, lemons, oranges, figs or what not are good for the system and benefi cial to the complexion, besides add ing to the family expense account unless grown la your own back yard J Perhaps we have not shown Eve so much honor as she deserve, be cause the earlier chronicler, did not dress up their facta with aa much wealth ot ' descriptive laudation as mark, tbe effusions on the society page of the Journals of today.. It Is not too late to honor Eve. Why not have congress erect a monument to her fame? And If Mr." Taft can't carry his own state.' what atate. If any, caa he carry? Kansas City Star.

Before RooseyeJtt thmw his hat into the ring we .sajdl ttiaft tn Kansas he is the most t popular man before the, public and t&att tto people of Kansaas would vote for him for any position. no matterr who waa his opponent. After the hat wnt Jntq the rlnthe prediction of the New. was vefjied.

Ia the meantime, the Republicans In this neck of the wood, will manifest go d sense by restraining their persona feelings within the bound, of good nature, for there 1. another rlvejt to cross In November. An exchange calls attention- ta an interesting coincidence. On the night of April 14, 1865, when, Abraham Lincoln waa assassinated, one of the conspirators gained entrance;' to the home of William H. Seward, secretary of state, and murderously assaulted him aa he lay seriously 111. Attempt ing to make hia escape, he was in tercepted by a .on of the secretary, upon whom he Inflicted several des perate wounds. This son, Frederick H. Seward, a worthy and disinguished man, perished on the Titaatc exactly forty-seven years later, on the night of April 14. 1912. Don't worry about politics. It never did anybody any good to do that.
