"World's" unofficial tabulation from
reliable sources shows that two states
Illinois and Ohio which have mil
lions of citizens less than this com
monwealth, cast hundreds of thou
sands more ballots. New York's
total presidential vote was 3,365,410,
Illinois polled 2,120,468; Ohio, 2,
019,500; Pennsylvania, 1,849,992.
Tho discrepancy is everi more
astounding when reduced to percent
ages. Ohio's vote was 35 per cent of
thepopluationj that of Illinois 33 per
cent; that of New York 32 per cent;
Indiana, eleventh in population,
polled 43 per cent of its citizens,
leading the procession easily. Only
21 per cent of Pennsylvania's citi
zens voted! Let citizenship workers
Of course it is easy to account for
tho heavy vote in Indiana by the in
tense interest aroused by the battle
for tho sonatorship. The bitter fac
tional fight in Illinois brought hun
dreds of thousands of lethargic vot

governorship. Ohio waxed warm be

The New York "Herald" develops
the same theory in a more general
manner. Comparing the 1916 and
1920 vote in eleven states in which
women voted for Presidential elect
ors four years ago, it shows a marked
falling off in the total count. In these
states the vote of 1920 was less than!
97 per cent of that of 1916. The
"Herald" fails to include'" in its list
Illiifois, in which women voted in

BY WATER FROiUVTHE OHIO TO
THE GREAT LAKES
The report of the Chicago asso
ciation of commerce on the ques
tion of a waterway connecting the
Great Lakes with the Ohio -river
deserves careful attention. The prac
ticability of the scheme in general,
and the particular route to be chosen,
are both under investigation by .the
board of United States engineers.
The association of commerce com
mittee, after careful consideration,
leans strongly toward an advocacy
of the project known as the Cin-cinnati-Ohicago-Toledo
From the Ohio at Cincinnati it runs
through Hamilton, Middleton, Day
ton and Defiance to Lake Erie at
Toledo. From Defiance another canal
strikes west through Fort Wayne to
Lake Michigan at Michigan City.
This canal would not only offer
cheap, direct transportation south for
Great Lakes shipments in general-,
permitting Detroit, for instance, to
snip on barges which could without
difficulty be taken through protected
waters to Toledo, but it would- open
an avenue from Chicago to Cin
cinnati And Louisville of inestimable
value. Again, millions of tons of
eastern Kentucky and West Virginia
coal are used in Chicago annually,
