Illinois polled 2,12U,4U8; onio, z,

Tho discrepancy is even" more
astounding when reduced to percent

Of course" it is easy to account for
tho heavy vote in Indiana by the in
tense interest aroused by the battle
for the senatorship. The bitter fac

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

BY WATER FROMVTHE 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 Cincinnati-Chicago-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
ship on barges which could without
difficulty be taken throueh nrotfictArl
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,

Some are always quick to protest
that Pennsylvania's light vote is due
to -the fact that the result has usual
ly been a foregone conclusion. That
is a dangerous and false premise. Tlie
truth is that tho result is often a
foregone conclusion because the vote
is always certain to be light. Civic
consciousness is not dead because
people stay away 'from the polls. Peo
ple stay away from the polls because
civic consciousness is dead. That the
vote is light is the superficial, visible
symptom of the ailment; it is not the
root and cause.
