In North Dakota there was held
state-wide legal primary on Tuesda ;
It was just the sort of primary tin
the Roosevelt managers have been s
noisily demanding all along. Hut tli
result of tlmt primary' made tli
Roosevelt managers sick. They claii
in loud ami complaining tones tli ;
the democrats Voted In the republiea
primaries and thus gave -the state t
LnKollcjtte. Hero is the formal stat <
mont Issued by John S. Bass , man !
ger of the Roosevelt campaign 1
North Dakota :
"Our reports indicate that praet
rally all the democrats have vote
for LaKollotto , and this has run u
the early returns for him In the eas
orn and valley section of the stat
where LaKollotto is running ahea
about two to one. Our later retiiri
from the western slope indicate thi
country is generally for Itooseve
Iwo lo one. If the democrats lui
stayed out of the republican primal
there is no question that Roosovc-
would have won. "
As a specific demonstration of tl
truth of the republican contentici
that the primary Is a fraud and fal
uro , this confession from Roosevelt
own manager on the ground Is co
elusive. Wherever the primary lit
boon trletl It has been conducive i
dishonesty and Illegality. This is tl
sort of thing that Stubbs In Knnsi

No system of primary has boon de
vised that can be rolled on to demonstrate -
strato a true party preference. That
s the reason why the real repnbll-
ans of Kansas want nothing to do
.vltli It. Instead of Insuring an lion-
si party choice , It gives the opposi
tion an opportunity to take part In
ho nomination and help the weakest
andldato. The Roosevelt managers
uivo had a bitter dose of their own
medicine. They have been loudly
lemandlng primaries , and they got
them In North Dakota , and the re-
sull has caused consternation. In
stead of the democrats voting for
Uoosovelt In that state , they voted
for'LaKollctto. . It makes all the dif
ference In the world who gets the
fraudulent votes In a primary. Had
