In dhicussing legislation that he hoped to see enacted at the coming session of the legislature, he said: "i am heartily in favor of changing the primary law so that the nomiii-' ation of United States senator will occur at the general election, by le^s- ative and senatorial districts, requiring voters to vote the legislative tlck- Ci as a requisite to their voting Sifc {:t -iie .r States senator on the same ticket. "This would save the state from lj'-'i>ig agitated from early spring until after the primaries and then before the election over the question of who was to be onr representative in the United States senate to. the exclusion 'of ail other questions, even of mucli greater Importance.'.' The senator's suggestion that a vot- f -r must vote for the Republican candidate for the legislature at least be- forc his vote for a Republican candidate for l.'nited States senator shall be counted is a new proposition and strikes a .popuiur chord with the Republican lehders^ That some plant should be devlKeil to prevent Demo- crais! help'.rg the Republicans to se- i .:it a Republican candidate for United States souator, or tha Repnblicons 1-f liiln& tho Democriits"" ^.Q^,^lV!t a P.^inr.crati'j eandfdiit«,'!s pacenUg ail.'

He was an ardent**' n;ivocate of bank insurance at the last ression and says he will be loaded with ammunition this time, which he hopes will help to secure such a law. "I also suggest." says he.
