It ia considered most important that this be speedily accomplished; and of course If It can be done the world will approve the course that has been pursued towird Mexico by President Wil- showers all over Illinois when the official -forecaster was looking the other way.

In Vermilion county in this state. and that is where you find the town of Damille. there is a good roads association. Press reports bring the Information this association h«s hela a meeting and has deckled to ask for a bond issue ot $1.5(10,000 to improve to something else. The world hopes this can be accomplished In Mexico. . and the world has a direct Interest in the outcome. Let us trust that those who are try- ins their best to restore pea^e and order In Mexico will have a big measure of success. It means something to bring this about without Intervention, it is altogether better to get the thing done In this way. And It is reassuring to have the cer- I tain feeling that at Washington we 1 have an administration thai will every Intelligent effort to get Mexicans to agree among themselves to live in ' orderly fashion. And one can feel i pretty sure thit all along a decided majority of the people of this country felt the situation in Mexico was not extremely serious for us while there was In Washington a man like President Wilson. far as others do in Montana, JEN YEARS AGO TODAY IN DECATUR By Showing in Votes at Judicial Election. T HE first number on the political program is the special _ judicial election, and this comes a week ti-om Tuesday. All candidates are engaged in trying to impress the date on " ' " ' " that George B. Spltler of Mt. Zlon, Democrat, would be a candidate for the state committee. This Is not correct; Mr, Spltler is not In this race. However, there is a candidate.' He is Frank V. Dllatush of Monticello. Heretofore he has been put down as a« antl- Sulllvan man. It is not known there will be another candidate in the district. It Is thought that Chr-les D. Thomas, lawyer, of Champaign, will be the Progressive candidate for congress. He has been urged by some Champaign people, and there does not seem to be another candidate in the field. WHITAKER'S MOVEMENTS. W. H.

The reason assigned for this lorecast was that Mr. Boggs Is a. good deal of a Progressive In principle, if not in affiliation, and that it would ,ult Judge Hawbaker to see Mr. Boggs on the bench. IT ISN'T WORKING. When this story first started, Mr. JOSB' a t t e n t i o n was called It and he w a s invited to make comment. He said there was nothing to the tale, that It was part and parcel of somebody's overworked imagination. Well, it turns out that Mr. Boggs WEATHER FLOURISHES.

GET FIRST PRIZE IN BABY SHOW Sullivan candidate,'Introduced for th mrpose of defeating Borchers. The story further is that Sulltvaa sn't guilty, that he had nothing to do with bringing out Whltaker, didn't know that he was coiling out, that in act he was induced to get into the raca by a man who is a leader In the campaign of Lawrence B. Stringer against Sullivan. The Sullivan jJeople, the story con- :lnues, would be pleased if some one would induce Whitaker *o get out of this race. They can't do this turn and Sjl- ivan can't do It, for they haven't any pull with Whitaker. HOW IT HURTS. And how Is Whitaker likely to h u r t Sullivan? This is the way some Sullivan people see the thing: With Whitaker in the race for the nomination for congress the tendency will be to get more of Borchers' supporters to the polls on primary day. A large majority of the Borchers supporters are thought likely to vote against Sullivan if they do go to the polls. Therefore It would help Sullivan if something could be done to abate the activities of Borchers* supporters primary day, and the suresc way to do this would be to let Mr. Borchers have the nomination without opposition. But the thing is too much for Sullivan. Mr. Whltaker fe not his candidate and Is not taking orders from that one spread the tale that Whltaker was camp. PROMINENT PIATT COUNTY JUDGE IS CANDIDATE FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE w i t h Progressives, it they expect to a m o u n t to anything in the political af- f a i r s of this state and nation. At any rate Judge Ha.wb.iker is do- put on the primary ballot. If he secures a nomination he becomes a party candidate, and central committee mera- bera and party leaders have nothing to say about it. / Arrangements of the kind proposed between Democrats and Progressives can% be made without the consent of all the voters, at least their assent j must be had. Any voter can write In the name of a candidate on the primary ballot for any o f f i c e that is left vacant, and one vote will nominate the candidate unless some other man gets two. AFTER A PRIMARY.

Early last week there was announcement, seemlnglv authoritative, that en- Sine men on western railroads would FIEt.n IS OCCUPIED. The Commoner la c t week had r. statement that was alprned by W. J. Ervan. directed at Colonel Roosevelt ana hanrtllns criticisms of the admin" 1 t'-trarlon lately mafle by him. In this statement there Is one remark by Mr. -. Brjan that perhaps will get considerable a t t e n t i o n . It says: "It (the Democratic party) Is now so progressive that there 1 no room for another progressive party." Isn't there a lot of sense in that remark" Let the reader apply the remark to himself and his own views the situation in this country. Let him ask himself what he realfy thinks about Mr. Bryan's statement. When the Democratic party is beaten In the nation will It not be because a majority or a. plurality of the voters h.ive d'*cidt_d that Just a little too much not accept arbitration or mediation -under the federal act. The reason assigned was that In the past railroad managers have refused to live up to awards made in arbitration. Developments toward the end of the week lead one to conclude that the first announcement did not represent the real wishes of engine men. It was announced that railroad managers arid these men had agreed to appeal to mediation by the federal board. The thing noted In connection with this later announcement -was that it was entirely satisfactory to engine men; In fact they were delighted when they learned there was to be mediation. And so it is safe, to assume this is the thing they wanted all che time. The public is pleased to get this later view of the wishes of engine men The first announcement that they would have nothing to do with arbitration didn't strike the public favorably t i Of course if differences can't be arbitrated the prospect Is always a serious one.

A meeting of the Democratic central committee of Ma con county was call- id last week to talk over this matter md to devise ways and means to get out a good ^ote for D. B. Enochs a week from Tuesday. Of course, It goes without saying this that will not be overlooked o-t the Republican central NO ONE FOR JUDGE. It happens that neither Progressives r.or Democrats have a candidate for county judge. Each party to the "split" arrangement is willing to *'wlsh" this o f f i c e on the other fellow. Pressure continued to be brought on Carl N. Weilepp, Democrat, to make him run for county Judge.

The Democrat who can possibly get to the polls should be delighted tp lend a hand and a vote to a candidate of such quality. It is worth something to the party to have a campaigner of Mi. Enochs' kind He Is one who Is at work on the Job all the time, who utterly refuses to recognize such a thing as discouragement.

This time there is special need that members of the Democratic central committee bestir themselves to get results. Some of them understand their efficiency H S commltteemen will be rated on the showing o£ votes made in this election. Democrats have a fine chance this year if they will only start off this first number on the program with a creaitable showing.

He was not enthusiastic over the suggestion, and the understanding now is that he doesn't allow himself to get within reach of the lightning. CONGRESS DISTRICT.

The announcement of Judge Elim J. lawbaker as a candidate for circuit udge to be elected Tuesday, July 28, attracting much attention in poli- cal circles because of the eminent .tneSB of the candidate and of the igor of the campaign which he and is friends will make. Judge Haw- aker ha» a -wide acquaintance over he Sixth judicial district and Is proba- ly better know by the bar through- ut the district than either of the oth- r candidates. He It now in the prime t hla life, thirty-four Vears ot age, nd has had sufficient trial to prove its ability in every respect. Judge Hawbnker was born Oct. I, 880, and reared on a farm in Newcomb ownshlp, Champaign county. Illinois. He Is a descendant of Pennsylvania-German parents, his father, a :lvll war veteran, coming to Illinois in a boy, worked S65. Judge Hawbaker as high scho began his efforts to pro- ever since cure a college education: He attend- sive column. «d the University of Illinois for two Ing majority. Since his admission ta the bar he has tried cases or sat as a trial Judge in every county in the Sixth judicial district and in many other counties. His success as a trial Judge Is attributed largely to hla Judicial temperament, h! s eminent fairness, his thorough knowledge of the law and of trial procedure and a deep concern that justice may prevail. His record as a probate and Juvenila court Judge has elicited warm praise trom the state administration officers snd while during the past eight years some few appeals have~found the way, into the supreme court, It is a. significant fact that every case was there affirmed. In 1912 Judge Hawbaker was a rep^ resentativo of tho Nineteenth congressional district to the Republican National convention at Chicago, and earnestly supported the compromise resolutions offered by Governors Mo Govern and Deneen. After the convention he tonscicntlously cast his lot m been found in the Progres- «unXTh e o r o!. fM Se a srad7a e t n ed ed from t.o, he conscientiously cast Hi. country scnools. we K^ ^ ^^ ^ ^.^ ^ m a j o r ity of his party and has in vears and to defray expenses, tended furnaces, waited tables and established a newspaper route. During the vacation he worked on the Dr. Mills farm near Savoy in Champaign coun- in the fall ot 1901 ho entered the law department "of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, graduating there in 1904 with high honors class of 250. He wa* admitted to the bar in 1111- noli the same year and opened a law Office In Mansfield. An unsullied reputation and a host of friends formed his chief assets, and by his untiring leal to the interests committed to his oare, he arose rapidly in his chosen profession. Two years later at the age of twenty-six, he was chosen county Judge of Platt county and wa» then the youngest man on the bench In the state of Illinois. He was re-elected to that office ifl 1910 by an overwhelm- . The people of the state of Illinois by ' their constitution have provided that circuit Judges should be elected in June every sK years, endeavoring thereby to prevent inferior men from being swept into office by political ndellders. Judge Hawbaker for years past ha* advocated the non-partisan nomination and election of all Judges and early In 1913 drew and had introduced in tha state legislature such-a bill similar to the law now in force in Wlin-onsln. Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and other states. His friends, regardless of party affiliation, are working earnestly and urging upon the voters tbntl he is the only candidate who has had judicial training and experience and that his eight years' service on the countv bench where the some rule* of law, practice and procedure apply as in the circuit court has Conclusively demonstrated his. fitness for thai office of circuit Judge.- fSPAPEJRI
