Harmon'i Tour of the Wet.
H ia quite thought fu) In Governor
Harmon to arrange for several stop
offs in thp west, an he goes to and
from San Frsncisro, where he will
select the aite for the Ohio building
at the Panama exposition. Of course,
as the governor says, his trip at this
time is only for this state errand.
Governor Wilson has already made
a similar tour and now It remains for
tbe others to follow suit.
Governor Harmon la too old a poli
tician to take chances on the "ene
my's country," and leave to a later
date the sounding out of sentiment In
this territory. He was tbe first cuu
dlilnte for the democratic nomination
to enter the ring and It would not do
to lag behind the others now.

Include stop-offs In Nebraska, where
dwells the man who not loryj, ago
ordered Harmon to "prepare to stand
aside," and who claims an exclusive
right by pre-emption to the democ
racy of this stale. Harmon's whole
plan savors strongly of a bold chal
lenge, but la he bold enough to defy
Mr. Bryan on his home ground?
Evidently the Ohio governor la
satisfied with the. "feelers" set to
work In Nebraska and other western
stat'-a and encouraged to "come on,'
It is itinit significant that bo me of
his lending exponents In this state
are Bryan apoatatee, led, In fart, by
he "original Rryan newspaper."
Governor Harmon does well to an
nounce his nil no ion as purely tae
choosing of his state's location at the
great exposition, but to others tt has
he appearance of the opening gun In
he aggressive Harmon campaign for
1912, an early move to rally to

of the Missouri river.
Bale Works Both Ways.
Recently San Francisco elected a
mayor by lta new primary plan, by
which the candidate receiving a ma
jority of all votes cast Is declared
elected without again being balloted
upon. This, advocates of tho plan
declare, saves tUe trouble and ex
pense of the second or general elec
tion and interprets the will of the
people Just as accurately, and, they
maintain, it would be manifestly un-l
fair and superfluous to send two or
more candidates back to the polls a
second time after one had obtained a
majority over all the others.
Los Angeles has just held its city
primaries under the same plan, but
it did not work out as conveniently
as it did in San Francisco. The high
man for mayor, who happens to be a
socialist, led the "good government,"
or next highest man, by more than
3,000 vote and yet felt short of a
majority by more than 4.000. So
these two candidates are to be voted
for at a final election.
It wan our contention at the time
so much was being made of the San
Francisco event that It was a strange
rule that did not work both ways
and that possibly thla would prove no
exception. Where sentiment la pre
ponderating one-sided, tbe rule
would, of course, secure the end
sought, but where sentiment is more
evenly divided, as ta Los Angeles,
it would fall, and this, no doubt,
would happen In the great majority
of cases. But even where the rule
works out aa desired to the first In
stance, it is not certain that It pro
duces the fairest results. Nine
times out of ten conditions obtain
which prevent a primary election
from fairly reflecting the majority
Los Angeles is now to have the
help of the women in electing a
mayor. The city , boasts of being a
paragon in clvlo righteousness and
progress and yet It did not find its
power in that direction great enough
to elect its "good government" man
over a socialist and now has to call
on the mothers, wives and daughters
to rescue it from the socialists. Pasa
dena, Los Angeles' next door neigh
bor, haa a socialist mayor. Good gov
ernment ia really a relative consider
ation, for which there is no patent
Beno's Cut-Bate War.
From reports that come out ot
Reno, Nov., one Is led to couclude
either that the divorce trade la Bug
ging or that lawyers have btvconie so
numerous aa to threaten the Integrity
ot tbe bualness. Dispatches say a
"bitter cut-rate war la being waged
between attorneys in divorce cases."
It dues not say whether the number
of dlvorcea ia materially diminishing
or tfiat of the lawyers increasing.
But ratea are certainly falling. Here
tofore it has been customary for
lawyers to get a fee or $250 for
breaking "asunder what God hath
joined together," where there was no
contest and all the work was purely
perfunctory, but now under the cut
rate war a lawyer is lucky to pick
up $76 and pay court coats himself,
which formerly were hung onto the
client. Steps already are being
taken, however, by tome of tb pro
ethical members of the profession to
remedy conditions and do away with
such unseemly disorder by laying
the whole matter before the State
Bar association for action.
It Is quite possible that the facility
for makfng money offered by this
class of practice has lit Nevada, it
not elsewhere, had something to do
with what is usually charged up en
tirely to marital Infelicity. If there
were any way of eliminating that
festure of the problem, It would be
well. The most reputable lawyers,
of courr-o. do not strive for thla char
acter of practice and doubtless they
would like to see the unsavory side
of It auppresscd, whether they ever
take any steps, themselves, to sup
press it or not. It Is very bad when
the man whose profession commands
h! dignifying the law and aiding so
ciety in legitimate and laudable ways
to solve Its problems, departs from
this fundamental duty to embrace a,
scheme of burlesquing law and ex
