Meanwhile, is Mr. Hoover a can

A FOUNDATION LAID
It may be worth all the dissection
of the state into electoral districts
costs while it lasts to have gained
therewith acceptance of the facts on
which the partitioning is based.
Delegate Meserve gave as the reason
why the convention committee on
judiciary proposes to change from a
supreme court of state judges to aJ
supreme court consisting of an ag
gregation of congressional district
judges: , v
It was because the non-partisan
primary law renders knowledge of
the voter in regard to candidates al
most impossible. One might as well
shake dice or cut cards to determine
who'shall'be judge. It is better that
the people of one district vote intel
ligently for one candidate, one wl&m
they know, than people of six dis
tricts vote unintelligently.
people and the convention to see. It
is truly as Mr. Meserve says that
the people cannot get acquainted
with candidates for inconspicuous
even though important, state offices.
They must vote more or less blind
ly. That is true whether there is a
non-parttsan primary law or no pri
mary law at all.' It is true of ad
ministrative no less than judicial of fices.
In the latter case the people
must merely vote blindly for men
put before them by an irresponsible
convention machine. The trouble is
not with this or that method, of
election. It is inherent In the direct
election of these less conspicuous of
It is worth something to have the
convention recognize this long unre
garded fact. True, the premise i3
not followed to Its logical conclu
sion. Because the people cannot dH
rectly choose their supreme court in
telligently, they are to be deprived
of any effective control of the court.
Five-sevenths of the court, under the
district system, is put beyond the
range of the direct or indirect influ
ence of any particular voter. Men
who would call it undemocratic fo
vest the appointment of judges In a
governor whom the state as a whole
controls, are proposing to vest the
appointment in a congressional dis
trict which the state as a whole has
no means of influencing or control
ling. But this is only temporary.
With the basic fact as stated by Mr.
Meserve once recognized, the ration
al conclusion will follow- in due
five missing ratifications. Okla
homa and New Mexico have already
arranged for special sessions. Wash
ington will probably do so, though
the governor is slow about it. Con
necticut and Vermont have anti-suffrage
governors who have thus "far
refused to call special sessions,
though their legislatures are said to
be favorable. The 36th ratification,
if it is to come in " time for this
year's campaign,' will evidently de
pend upon West Virginia and Dela
ware. That is too close for comfort.
The women will win next year
anyway. But they want their vote
this year. The doubt which Mary
land casts upon the situation lias
its bearing on the plans of the Ne
braska constitutional convention. If
the national amendment is not to
enfranchise the Nebraska women in
time for the year's election, the same
end could be achieved by submitting
the work of the convention, which
will i include a woman suffrage
amendment, in advance of the fall
election. The Nebraska women will
have their presidential vote in any
case. But they had fixed their
mouths for the full menu. State

The committee on executive. r..uch

will find help from the discussion of
the judiciary. It faces the same fact,
the impossibility of efficient diiect
popular choice of Inconspicuous ad
ministrative officials. The logic of
the action on judiciary would lead
the committee on executive to a like
districting of the state for executive
elections. It might have one con
gressional district elect the treasur
er, another the auditor, another the
superintendent of schools, another
the secretary of state, and to the re
maining two, it might entrust the
election of the governor. This would
meet every condition of Mr.
Mescrves argument. But if it dis
likes the idea of giving one part of
the state power to govern another,
it can, meet the conditions with less
loss of popular control by reducing
the number of state offcers, leaving
the obscurer position to be filled not
by election of a part of the state,
but an executive responsible to the
entire state. State Journal.
The rejection of the suffrage
amendment by the Maryland legis
lature is the first serious setback
which the amendment has received.
It is the first state not of the solid
south to reject the amendment. Thus
far, only Alabama, Georgia, Virginia
and Mississippi have set their faces
against" the political aspirations of
the women. The amendment has
been before the states only since last
June. Thirty-one out of the 3 6
states to act have acted favorably.
The way seemed clear to complete
ratification not only before the elec
tion, but before the primaries.
The unexpected failure of Mary
land clouds the prospect. Of the 12
states which have not vet acted.
four are of the solid south. One of
these, Florida, would perhaps ratify,
but under .its : constitution it can
not act until a new legislature Is
elected next fall. The same is true
of Tennessee, which will ratify when
it gets a chance. That leaves it to
Connecticut, Delaware, Vermont.
