No independent paper is urging
its readers to vote for the constitu
tional amendment providing for
the election of a railroad commis
sion by direct vote of the people.
The proposition was once sub
mitted by a republican legislature ,
and failed. It should not be de
feated again. The independents
are occupied with their tale of
woe , and with the men on their
ticket. They seem to have no
time for anything else. We now
hazard the prediction that a large
majority of votes cast for the
proposition will be cast by the re-j
publican voters , and if it carries if
will be carried by republican sv

Thankful for Mud.
It seems rather odd that thgi
officials should welcome the-
general rain because it will make
country roads muddy and prevent the
fanners from hauling their grain to
market. The railroads are all blockaded
on account of the extraordinary move
ment of grain and the car famine is the
most serious ever known. Nobody
seems able to explain why the farmers
are rushing their wheat to market at
such a rate when prices are so low , but
the wheat continues to come and the
elevators at all prominent market
points are full to overflowing , while
millions of bushels are on the railroad
tracks awaiting movement.
CANDIDATE ANDREWS in this big
Fifth congressional district will
not cast a single vote to the dis
credit of the district , of the state
or nation ; but his opponent , Mr.
McKeighan , will , just as he did at
the last session. Mr. Andrews is
for America and American institu
tions. Mr. McKeighan is for W.
A. McKeighan first , last , and all
the time. District , state or nation
are not in it , so far as any effort he
may make for their advancement.
