A PHIL 25, 19ilfl THE BLANKET PRIMARY. Several readers of the Avalanche have asked the editor to explain the blanket primary. It may not be amiss liret to stato briefly the provision of the law in regard to primaries at it now in, in order that we may see the difl'ereute be tween it and the proponed blanket primary. Under the law a it now is ev ery vote cast for a flute or district candidate in a :unty will he counted for him, and he will re ct-ive hi pro rata share of the con vention vota. In other word., no state or district candidate t an now receive the entire convention vote of a county unless every ballot in GIVE US YOUR APRIL BILL OF GROCERIES Yours for Good Goods and Prompt Service LAWRENCE & CO. . the primary election be cast for him. If a candidate received only one vote in the primary he can claim his prorata of the couvention .... .a . a 1 vntn which that countv la entitled to in the state or district nominal ing convention. The law provides that "each county in the date or district con vention shall be entitled to one vote for each 300 votes or major fraction thereof cast for the candi date for Governor of the politica party holding the convention at the la.t preceding general election In case at such general election there were cast for such candidate for governor less than 300 votes in any county then all such counties shall le entitled to one vote. Under this law the object of the primary is to instruct the delegates to the nominating conventions. Every county votes independently and every county, however email or pparcely populated, is represent ed in the nominating convention. The blanket primary would dis regard county lines and give the nomination to the candidate re ceiving a plurality of the votes in the entire district or state. Nom inating conventions would not be necessary, and if any state or mM.tin.ra were held their object would bo simply to formu laic declarations of political prin ciple.or party platforms.
