Another Richmond In the presiden

of lows-
part of the opponents of president
Taft. The opposition to the presi
dent started out to focus on th Wis
consin senator for a mass play, but
have evidently -been forced to the
conclusion that this is not the win
ning move, and, therefore, are fall
ing back on the favorite son gambit
to make It a Ight of the field against
Tsft.
It Is interesting to not that this
retreat was foreshadowed several
days ago by Collier's Weekly, whose
lie-up of tha republican situation
was that. If primary election
throughout the nation were held to
day Taft would get about 800 dele
gates and La Follett about 200 del
egates, snd that Roosevelt's refusal
to countenance solicitations for him
to com out In the open "If likely to
result soon in the turning to soms
new candidate, probably someone like
Borah, or Cummins, or Clipp."

has been even faster, snd more furl-

Theater Ticket Scalping.
A Chicago theater manager hat
lea found with the temerity 'to de
lend ticket scalping as clandestinely
called Mayor I practiced for years by theaters there
and In New York, and probably else
where. He admits that bis theater
turn over tickets to brokers to be
scalped at advance prices and ran see

It 4 the meanest kind of discrimina
tion and is prompted by no higher
motive or consideration tbaa the
theater man's greed for mor money
thsn his legitimate ticket sale at the
box office window bring him, and this
greed lesds him to get this extra
price by surreptitious methods, since
he cannot do it openly.

Illinois supreme court Is on record

tion. That statement at least lenda
a comical aspect to aa otherwise irri

la our reference to the Nebraska stats

pl ration of the decorations as arranfed
under the direction of a committee of
which alias Alios K. HHte, supervisor of

Those decorations deserve mere than
a passing notice. There were more than
m flass used In decorating the Audi'
torluni. They were fresh, bright bril

Th recent arraignment at tht

might well serve to direct inquiry
Into tb training at other Institu

Stokes doe aot favor that. But so
