Von Hoist in his "Con stitutional History of tho United States' says that the Civil War might have been prevented, had tho Jofforson ordinance carried. Marcus Morton was made governor of Massachusetts in 1840 by one voto. Fourteen years later one vote deter mined that Charles Sumner became a United States senator. In 1800 Thomas Jefferson ran against Aaron Burr for president. Each go tho same number of votes. Tho election was thrown into the House of Representatives, where tho voto c one man decided tho deadlock in favor of Jofforson. And still there are people who say: "Oh, woll, if I don't go to tho polls, one vote won't make much difference ono way or tho other." It is true that ono vote may be swallowed up in a political landslide. But politics is uncertain, landslides aro never inevitable, and tho voter's attitude should always be that the outcome is in doubt and waiting for his or her vote to decide it. Tho ballot is tho armor and the shining sword of the individual's lib erty. It is his direct voice in the con duct of government. At tho Tuesday primaries, every voter should make it his most im portant business of the day to go to the polls and rogistor his convictions and desires. Important issues can be lost and evil issues can win, if a small group of indifferent citizens neglect their duty to themselves and their fellows by failing to vote. Go to the polls!

FL&FAp LABORATORIES, Block 2179, St Loo!, I FROM A COMMONER READER Cassius Haywood, Oklahoma. Mr. Bryan's suggestion in the April issue of The Commoner, that merchants ought to be required to show' cost and selling price on their wares, is most timely though tho great significance of the proposition is in no sense fully appreciated. It is really equal in im portance with any roform measure being discussed today. While the question is not a new one, nothing has been said before amounting to more than notice fin passing. The people know Mr. Bryan well enough to know that it means more when he deigns to consider a matter. It means, if ho advocates it, that it is vital and urgent. And so it is with this last verily. Nevertheless, it is a proposi tion that the stubborn and obdurate sh'ylocks are going to fight to the last ditch. But tkey, shall be without sound argument on their side, for there is no more reason why the merchants should keep their profits concealed from their customers than for bankers to keep their rates of in terest hidden from their natrons. And, while considering this phase, why should tho merchant who makes more than a legitimate profit not bo subject to punishment ,the same as the banker who collects more than tho legal rate of interest? They are both of the same reprehensible class. Since the question of legitimate- prof its is inevitably involved in price showing, tb regulation of price will, of course, bo contingent upon tho lat ter. Such a one man agency for things good for humanity and requisite to make the world a better nlace in which to live was never represented so complete as in Mr. Bryan. Besides the famous inestimabl measures for which he 'lias pleaded and seen Ac complished prohibition, woman suf frage1 and a world peace promoting council, practically assurednow, most important, a single moral stand ard and the requirement by law. that 'on especially the necessities of man- mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmwammt m ll Pilf :vJien "delicious and re- I ' n W f resning" mean tlje most.

HITCHCOCK MACHINE BROKEN Bryan won his fight in Nebraska against the Hitchcock-Mullen ma chine. Figures for the entire state are not available but with about one third of the vote in, Bryan was third man m tne race out of eight and with strong probabilities that he would land on top. Probably Shajlenberger and possibly Neville will pull through, these two being on the Hitchcock slate, although Shallenbeiger Is not really a Hitchcock man. Arthur Mullen, the big lobbyist of Omaha, was slaughtered unmerciful ly. In Jefferson county Democrats rolled up three votes for Billy Thomp son to one for Mullen. And it wasn't all the women either. Mullen was easily beaten two to one by the male votes in the Democratic primary in tnjs county, lie is also running be hind b4dly over the state. Hitchcock barely received the en dorsement for presidetat-in thia coun ty, only having 12 more votes than Ross the livery stable nurse maid. No body Jcnows who Ross is or cared just so a vote for him was a vote against Hitchcppk Bryan's name did not appear on the ballot for president but he received about 175 votos in the county. -Counting the scattering vote for president -there were about two votes against Hitchcock for president to one for him in Jefferson county. In Fairbury Ross beat Hitchcock 135 to 108, and Bryan had 104, making nearly 2 to 1 against Hitchcock in Fairbury. Fairbury, Neb., Journal.
