WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 25. 1912. THE PRIMARY ELECTION. The expected happened. Two-thirds of the voters who called for Re publican ballots at the primary were opposed to Eberhart, but their division among five candidates rendered their protest futile. Young's coming into the game spoiled the excellent chance that Lee had of securing the nomination. The fight will now be between Eberhart and Ringdal for the fall elec tion, with Lobeck, Collins, and Morgan struggling to pick up a scattering vote. It is very fortunate that in this crisis, the Democratic party should have placed a man at the head of its state ticket of such eminent ability and fitness for a great executive office as possessed by Hon. Peter M. Ring dal. He is a man that the truly progressive voter of any party may make as their choice without fear of going far wrong. He is in no sense a bour bon democrat, but one who embraced the principles of the people's party and since the days of Gov. Lind's administration has consistently used his influence for better things within the Bryan democracy. Progressive Rei publicans can well afford to join with progressive Democrats and elect Ring dal governor of Minnesota. It is their only chance to break up the ma chine that floored them in the late primary. The Collins candidacy pre sents no hope, and if taken seriously by any number of voters will lead to the same result that gladdens the "interests" over the late contest. Senator Knute Nelson says he won out on his record. He should have said that he won out in spite of his record. That James A. Peterson should poll as many votes as he did is proof that the senior senator's record is! by far not re-assuring to the people of the state. James Manahan's nomination was brot about by the fact that three conservative candidates divided the field against him. It seems almost in credible that James Manahan and Knute Nelson could both be nominated for Congress by the same party at the same election, but such is the case. Both profess their willingness to stand by their party organization and be "regular." SECOND CHOICE VOTES IN KANDIYOHI. Miss Mabel Hedeen, who has been a guest at the Andrew Peterson home in this city for the past three weeks, departed today for her home at St. Paul. She was accompanied by Miss Minnie Peterson who will spend Sunday, a guest at the He deen home. In spite of all that was written and said in order to discourage voters from expressing their second choice in the first statewide primary, nearly half of the voters in Kandiyohi county used the privilege in expressing their choice for governor. Of these 894 were correctly returned. In several pre cincts, the election officials did not fill in the returns correctly so that the canvassing board was obliged to leave them out of their reckoning. By the process of elimination, adding the second choice votes cast for Eberhart and Lee by the voters whose first choice candidates were thrown out, the result stands Lee, 885 Eberhart, 652. Had the same proportion of the voters of the state generally availed themselves of the second choice privilege as did those in Kandiyohi county, the chances are that there would not have been a minority candidate on the republican ticket for governor. It could hardly be expected that such a sweepingly progressive meas ure, which only a few enthusiasts had heard of six months ago, could be put into use and be generally understood by voters at this election. But iting is a good feature of the primary law and will be used generally when the voters learn its efficacy to prevent minority nominations. Miss Esther Hultgren went to Pen nock yesterday for a couple of weeksi* vacation at her parental home. Miss Olive Carlson returned to her home at Pennock yesterday from a visit at the Andrew Ostrom home.
