The Continiltce's Action Tlic county central commillec, taken by surprise wliuii it discovered tlic official returns from the Wilson anil VictoHti boxes in [lie governorship race to be exactly tlie reverse of what 'unofficial reports had led it to expect, refused to certify the vote. It found support for this action in tho fact thai the certifications liy the judges iind clerks at both Wilson and Victoria had been erased and altered. W. I'\ Wilson, who oiitflil, to know, pays that the bulk of the vote at tho two boxes was cast for ICd F. ilcDon- uld for governor, an certified by Uie local .election.officers, and not for Curl E. Bailey, as was unofficially'reported the morning after the primary. It is our tfiiess that support for Jlr. Wilson's statement will be found in the ballots themselves, if they are ever gone into. Hut that does not mean that the commillec lacked justification i'or the action which it took. It lias been suggested that after all thai il has swallowed in previous primaries the committee was .sLniiniiif; at a gnat when it rejected tho Wilson and Victoria lelurns this year. Certainly it is true thai, there was'more evidence of irregularity at these boxes two years ngo than 'there was this year. Hut it is the central committee's duty to make: certain that tile rules of tho pmly for the conduct of primary elections, which seek to insure a free and secret ballot and an honest and accurate count and return of (he vote, are strictly observed at all polling- places under its jurisdiction. And when it is-confronted with evidence that raises a serious doubt that the voting at.any box has been properly conducted or that the results have been properly certified, it is certainly its duty to act. We hear a j;oo(l deal nowadays of the threat of..Communism or Fascist dictatoLship. The danger does not appear to bo serious. Bui if it over becomes a real menace it will be because a laijre purl of the rank and file of Americans have lost confidence in the effectiveness of the ballot as an instrument of self-government. The freedom of the American citizen to vote as he pleases, without fear of possible reprisal by employer or anyone else, and his assurance that his vote will be honestly counted and reported, should ho safeguarded not only as a matter of law and justice but for the BLYI'HEVILLE, (ARK.)'

Stirs the RubUc-Rouser The term "rabble-rouser" isn't supposed to be a compliment, But when the licv. Gerald 1,. K. Smith addressed a National I'ress Club luncheon in Washington the other day lie admitted the epithet had been applied to him—and he gloried in it. Jlr. Smith explained himself like this. "Oh, 1 know," he said. "If you say 'the Iliig' you are a uabblo-rouscr. The 'very firs I reference to the Stars and Stripes makes you a rabble-rouser. "And never refer to the Bible. That makes you a demagog, and a rabble- rouser. Never reach down where people pray. Never reach down where people are sincere. Stay out where people are smart, drunk, and sophisticated. Stay with them. Then you are somebody." Mr. Smith 'makes an eloquent plea and makes demagogy sound like a liit'll and holy thing. The only trouble is that he forgets that tlic spirit in which you do a thing can be a good deal more important than the il'iiif,' you do. Getting down and appealing to the sincere and humble emotions by which people live is not solely a trick of the demagog. Lincoln was a past master at it. The American [(evolution was fought largely because such men as 1'atrick Henry and Samuel Adams had the same knack, [iryan could do it, and so could Theodore Kooscvelt, and both men occupy honored places in our history. The thing that stamps a man as a rabble-rouser anil a demagog is the fact that he appeals to lliostj profound and magnificent emotions for jjis own ends. He does not really care whether the high aspirations which are evoked by his appeal to those emotions are fulfilled or 'not; he has an ax to grind, and his-appeal to those emotions is just his way of getting someone to turn the grindstone for him. The tragic thing about the dema- gog's work is the fact thai he arouses a force which could move mountains, and then turns it to his own selfish ends.
