Senator Robert M. LaFollette carried Wiscon sin at yesterday's primary election by a 40,000 majority ov Samuel A. Cook, of Neenah. The figures will not be completed for a day or two. but i.. in this county alone, the senators plurality will easily go beyond 8000. There is no doubt but that LaFollette will have control of the platform con vention at Madison and have the next legislature back of him, insuring his re election. LaFollette ran 20,000 ahead of his So big- was his vote that it carried with it a large majority of the legisla tive nominees. The LaFoUette state ticket, headed by - rancis E. McGovern, was also nominated. All "insurgent" congressmen were renominated "and added to their strength the nomination of Henry C. Cochems, a former "Wiscon sin university football star, who de feated Stafford for renomination in Che Fifth district. Cochems is the man who placed La Follette In nomination for the presi dency at the last Republican national convention. Congressman Cbas. H. ise, Demo crat, easily defeated Burt TVilliams for the Democratic nomination for United States senator. "r' Francis E. McGovern, candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomin ation, defeated his four opponents by a plurality estimated at S000 votes. Mc? Govern's nomination Is a defeat for county option, the main plank on which candidate Lewis stood. Fairchild, who finished second, .was. ' also, against county option. McGovern's victory is looked upon as a victory for LaFollette, as he advocated 'the senator's renom ination in all his speeches. McGovern won fameias the anti-graft district attorney of Milwaukee. There Is now a certainty that county option has been defeated by'a big ma jority for both the candidates now in the lead are opposed to county option, though McGovern Is the LaFollette sup porter and Fairchild figures as a sup porter of the Taft administration.

Chairman Pardee, of the resolutions committee, called that to order when the National Conservation congress met this morn ing. Tne membership of the committee Is said to indicate that the platform to be recommended will be strongly along the lines of national control as favored b3 Col. Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot.

"I am still chairman." declared Mr. Hines. "I was regularly appointed,! and have not been asked by president Baker to relinquish the place." Governors Leave. Declaring -there is nothing more they can do and believing they have been practically eliminated from the conven- tion, the western states rights" gov ernors have announced their Intention of leaving here at once. Governor Brooks, of Wyoming, gov ernor Vessey, of South Dakota; gover nor Norris, o. Montana; governor Hay, of Washington, are the "insurgents" who formed the 'fignting contingent" of the national conservation congress. Dissatisfaction over the failure to receive recognition at the hands of the congress as a whole was evidenced by. the executives from the west. Each tried to put forth a cheerful front but it was an effort almost close to failure. Governor Norris is particularly bitter in his denunciation. "Why," he said, "we could not break into that meeting now with a burglar's jimmy." Governor Norris is a Democrat. It was he who made tne "fighting speech" before the congress which' really brought on the clash with governor Stubbs, of Kansas. Farm Conservation.
