THE O K P I C I A I j NEWSPAPER OP LIVINGSTON COUNTY AMEND THE It is claimed that there is no law providing for the opening of ballot boxes to discover fraud on the question of voting on the initiative or referendum. This is said to be, true in the recent vote on the prohibition question where in St. Louis the drys claim that thousands of dry vote.s ·were thrown .out or not counted and the friends of the measure had determined to demand a recount of the ballots on the grounds of fraud. Tho coming legislature should amend the election laws providing a means for opening the ballot boxes in such a contingency that the people may be protected in the free and fair use on tho franchise. evitable evil, but i f ' t h a t evil is to be extended and broadened it is bound to complicate enormously the p r o b - j lenis for A m e r i c a n parties and poli-, ticians."

It concludes that t h e j U'est's interests possibly may be d i f - ferent from those of the East and I that "the economic determination of politics is well worth i considering." Another Gotham journal fears that President Wilson owes his re-election to an unholy alliance between the Democratic party and the M o r m o n c h u r c h -- evidently forgetting that Utah's f o u r electoral votes were n o t ] required to give the President a ma-| jority--and still another paper, pow- | erful in financial circles, regrets that the Westerners did not more closely heed the desires of Wall street and the exigencies of Big Business.

"The geometrical alignment of the states is only accidental," says the Post. "What really tells is the spirit. The change is one of soul, not region.

The unusual prevalence of i n f a n t i l e paralysis in the United States, w h i c h lias amounted to an epidemic in Greater New York, has shown up certain characteristics oC h u m a n ' nature. The total number of cases in Greater New York has been approximately 5 , 0 0 0 , the n u m b e r of deaths approx-, imaiely 2300. Fifty thousand dollars "was given by a well kn-own I'omu dation for work in stopping this outbreak, and the United States government appropriated $ 1 3 5 , 0 0 0 for the same purpose. Practically every city of any size in the United States, and especially those east of the Missippi River, has taken. extri precaution to prevent the spread of this disease. Tho caiise' o'f the disease and its method of transmission are known. It appears in unexpected places often at considerable distance Urom the ; nearest city in which an outbreak has i occurred, j u m p i n g , as it were, c i t i e s ; Avhich are between the two places, I While the disease is not extremely fatal as compared t o some others, i t is very apt to leave lifelong i n j u r y in the shape of paralysis, which affects one or more limbs or groups of muscle's. It i£, of course, right to take every precaution to prevent thie spread of this disease, but there does not seem to be any good reason for the great a m o u n t of excitement which /tlie disease has caused. Certainly it has r e - 1 ceived an" unusual p r o p o r t i o n of at-1 tention. When we compare the death rate and even the total n u m b e r of cases, of this disease to some of the well known ones "which are with us year in and out the reason for Promotes Digcstlon£h«ifuf-.!» rjess andRest.ContalrisnoBier' Opiuiu.Morphine ncrMiuetaL NOT NARCOTIC.

In all these elections speakers who are ' informed on the issues have almost ls an amazing victory f o r American . democracy and the World welcomes! " as the beginning of a new political untrarnmeled freedom in discussing era in the United States." Still, in the main, the Eastern press holds the West guilty of po. litical treason. The West should worry. Regardless of partisan affil- unlimited discussion by the campaign iation, the election will make the orators, and the press is flooded w i t h East realize that there is a West and the political propaganda of the re- this alone is no small accomplish- questions, men and policies, such as no other country allows in anything like the degree of liberality.

When the election Is over the people are satisfied. The ballot has settled the issues until the next election roles round. "EAST IS -EAST." Overnight, as it were, sectionalism has become a crime. Prior to the present election the East was proud . and boasted ot its customary solidarity. Sectionalism--from the Eastern standpoint--was a political asset, and, relying upon the West's accept, aiice of its principles, the Easterners arrayed themselves against the solid South and made them like it. Having a majority of electoral votes and congressional representatives, the East found sectionalism no very galling burden so long as Republicanism was in the saddle. "Wilson's election, of course, was deplorable; but on Tuesday the East, strong for "dominant Americanism." returned an overwhelming plurality against Wilson, and then, considering the election won in the belief that the West was, as heretofore, merely a tail for the Eastern kite, sat back and congratulated itself. It retired, late Tuesday or early Wednesday as the case might be, self-satisfied and confident, it makes no difference--to a sad and illuminating disappointment. The West was speaking-. It s p o k j uncertainly at first, then louder and more certainly. Now the result is known. That result was shocking to the East. From city and prairie hamlet, mountain fastness and backwoods lumber camp, the West regi~- tered its vote, and that vote was diametrically opposed to the Bast. Hence the crime of ^sectionalism. Recovered from tne first surprise, Eastern publisists suddenly discover that sectionalism is all wrong. Log- ically their position is absurd. The ink was hardly dry upon their congratulatory editorials praising the East for its solidarity, -when they di 1 :. covered the West was no longer -with I them and promptly commended writing new editorials condemning this evidence of political independence. And these editorials are gems of unconscious humor--although, of course to see the whole humor of the situation one should have supported Wilson. "Whatever the reason, it is plain that this new sectionalism, should it he allowed to crystalize into a custom, will be a serious factor to b j reckoned with,-" says the Philadelphia Ledger.

In greater New York upwards of I 10,000 people, die of consumption every year. In other words, the dea'tn rate from consumption is greater than j the total number of cases of infantile I paralysis, and yet no excitement is caused toy this disease. In the n u m . ber of deaths from inCatitile paralyis- is aiid even in the total n u m b e r of cases it does not compare in importance to the well known disease, diphtheria, scarlet fever and typhoid fever, which we have with us always. Yet no extraordinary efforts are made j by any board of health or at Washington to take charge of these diseases and prevent their spread. Year after year their ravages persist. If similar efforts were made to stop t u - . "berculosis, d i p h t h e r i a , scarlet f e v e r , measles and typhoid fever the number of cases and death-s which they all cause would be greatly lessened, but it seems impossible to excite any great a m o u n t of interest ^ver diseases . to which we have become so thor-j oughly accustomed..
