The people of CpJtunol generall will approve the action of Deputy Lm bor Inspector Scully of Marquette In prosecuting seven local saloonkeepers for allowing women In their saloons. T he men arretted and BMd INN pre- iously warned, and their arrest was tho nntiii-.il tORlfinU of their failure to live up to that warning. The law is Main, and Deputy Scully declures It w ill m enfon-ed. W i it the IP publican party should do, and do honestly and .sincerely, is to ilnd out what the Republican masses of the country want and give them a fair and decent chance to express them selves. Barring that chance (he results are likely to be disastrous for every body concerned. It is no wonder every body seems bewildered at the develop ments of the campaign. This election is going to be decided by the people. And the first step to give them tht chance to decide is to establiah the primary for choice of delegates to conventions. Of all the International antagonisms that netAren Germany and Kngland seems among the most foolish, because they ire the two leading commercial nations of Europe; are irrcst business customers of eat h other, and are, ex cept for the naval expansion of r;er many, in no way to he feared one by the other. How Germany's naval ex pansion can be a serious menaeo to Kngland Is one of those things that nobody has ecr satisfactorily pointed out. It la one of those specters that Jingoes simply shout about without showing anything very substantial to back up tho f ir Germany does not want war. It wants opportunity to complete its marvelous commercial ex pansion. England and Germany are natural allies In the world's work, and the most discerning men in both na tions know it and say it. Watts s. Humphrey, Saginaw R 1 ml luan. has had printed on the flr-i page of a newspaper that agrees with I.itii a warning to che legislature not to -override the constitution" 'by giv ing Immediate effect to a presidential primary law that it will meet next week to enact. 1'nles auoh an Hct should be given immediate effect, the SsMtors of the state will not ha v . SSI opportunity to express at a primary whom they want their delegates at the national convention to vote for as president, although Mr. Humphrey doesn't mention this circumstance In his ! -al disscftioli. Th. last work ill a political Hne that Mr. Humphrey did was In If 10. when he was very busy trying to persuade the Republicans of his district to vote to continue Julius Caesar Rurrows In the I'nited States Senate. n primary day Charles E. Townsend received 40.587 more vote than Rurrows. Twenty-two years ago Mr. Humphrey was living in Ray City and tried, as a Republican, to get him self elected to Congress for the tenth district. Thomas A. E. Weadock. Dcm ocrat, beat him by a majority of l,C6& AS TO THE THIRD TERM. In Mr Roosevelt's specific case it is sometimes said that his statement in 1904 and 1907 that he would not accept another nomination would make his acceptance of a nomination this year inconsistent. What Mr Roosevelt said In l'.H and 1'0T referred, of course, to a consecu tive third t erm . Mr. Roosevelt believes, although we 'o not share his belief, that the settled ' thl country makes a third t ve presidential term for an an impolitic, if not improper, but he Outlook has a better appreciation f h's intelligence than to suppose that e had in 1904, or has now, the slight -M Idea of defining a third term ex- rt In the way in which we have here fined it. The Outlook. THE TAFT SUPREME COURT. W'tn the appointment of Chancellor . tney of .New Jersey to fill the varan -v caused by the death of Justice Har in. President Taft has named a ma rity of the Supreme Court, besides levatlng one of Its members to the hief justiceship. This is a responsl ' ility such as has fallen to no other residnt '!? Washington. President Taft's appointments have een good Id is a careful lawyer hlm--elf. has been a ;udge, and takes a deep interest in maintaining the dignity and orth of the t,. n h. Notwithstanding he attacks that have been made on ome of his appointments, it is doubt ful if a handful of responsible men ould be found in the country who vould favor the recall of any one of his lppolntees. Tlie supreme court, owing o the Taft system of appointments, is now bwgsjjr mads up of comparatively oung, active and industrious men. Its cork Arms IMtl them, and they have been found. The present supreme court is bound to be historic because in the nature if things it will go a long time without ir.ueh change In personnel, and the ases now b re it and to he brought efore It affect the very foundations of 'ir Industry. It may be taken f'r rSJ lad that the president has given lis best thought to his selections. The naming of a supreme Justice is not altogeih.r in the hands of the -'resident The Senate can slop a nom inee on the threshhold. There are enough Progressives in the Senate to nake it ( ertaln that any man who eat lies the bench is there because his eal Illness Is such aa to convince oth radicals and conservatives.

Somo people claim that cipital punishment is a deterrent of crime, but that is not proved by hitorv. A hundred years ago in England men were executed for horse stealing and even for smaller thefts, but those crimes continued. IE HANGING DID NOT DETER irlORSE THIEVES IT WILL NOT DETER MI KPERERS. OF COURSE HANGING IS THE SIMPLEST WAY TO DISPOSE OF AN UNDESIRABLE CITIZEN, BUT THE DUTY OF SOCIETY IS TO JTUDY THE CRIMINAL AND HELP HIM REFORM. TOO MANY PER SONS FORGET THAT THE MURDERER IS, AFTER ALL. A MAN AND THAT WE ALL OF U8 ARE MEMBERS OF THE HUMAN RACE, BOUND UP IN THE SAME GREAT BUNDLE OF LIFE. I for one refuse to bo a silent partner in an institution that delib erately snuffs out human life arbitrarily, and when a man is hanged in this democratic country he is HANGED BY ALL OF US. Occasionally tho Bible is quoted to provo that Chi i t approved of capital punishment. I can recall only tho words of Jesua to the mob which gathered to stono a woman, "Lot him among you who is with out 6in cast the first stone." Stones would have reach the body of the wonian, but tho kindness reached her spirit and she was forever i reformed. We should EXERCISE MORE CHARITY AND LESS VENGEANCE in our treatment of criminal.-. tage by "what there Is in if for them. What the people complain about as to taxation Is the sending of money for which they get little return or none. Gov. Osborn propse8 several much needed pieces of W-glslation. Kvery bgdy understands that legislation costs money. It is tho cost of bad legisla tion only that fills the air with wall ings at time of taxpaying. Allegan I azette. According to one report Mr. Mussel- man failed to say iwsitively at the Flint Republican banquet last WSjsJl whether he would be a candidate f,,r the nomination for governor for the reason that he deisred to wait to ob serve the developments at the special session of the legislature. He believes, It is said, that they are Koina to have a determining influence on the political fortunes of Governor slorn. As he was defeated In the 1910 primaries Mr. MuKselman does not desire to get Into the race this year unless he believes that he haa an excellent chanco of S Inning. A prominent jmlitician. a Taft man, and opposed to Oov. Osborn and the I ' i nttsu ).rimary measure, told The News Tuesday that with a presiden tial primary Taft would be boatoU in the state. "We have got t have the convention system to nominate him," he declared. "And then I am afraid, with n good Democrat in the race, Michigan would lie mighty near the Democratic column when the votes were counted. It looks to me aa though the days of the convention system are about to pass. I am against any such move, but I can see it com ing." Detroit News. ' Hut, because tho people do not hold mass meetings favoring a presidential primary, it is no evidence that the people do not want it. At almost every gathering of people in Michigan a straw vote is taken on presidential preference. There is a widespread In terest. In tho matter, and the masses of the people take every opportunity to bring it to the surface. If every ii.. nib. r of the legislature would write 100 of his constituents or request them to write him. the chances are that SO P r rent would le In favor of a presl- : dential primary. In most Instances, opposition, to it Is born of a desire to' OCUCS socne other result than the prohable one if a primary Is held. Ka lamazoo Telegraph - I'ress.
