Witness the utter absence of street corner discussion even in the heat of a Presidential campaign. Witness the fact—we witnessed ft la.st fall—that in little country villages where the people are not exactly cloyed with entertainment, men would ' not walk acro.ss the .slVeet; when they had nothing, else to do. to hoar a candidate for Congress make a speech. There doubtless are several rea- 8i )hs why the people do not get a.s much interested in or excited ahput politics as they used to; but tlie Register believes one of the greatest of these rea.sons is the weakening of party .spirit and enthusiasm and for that the primary undeniably is chiefly responsible. TliR Register believes moreover that the weakening of party spirit ind enthusiasm, resulting in party demoralization and disintegration. Is a r^^al menace tol good government, tending, as it Inevitably does to break down party gpvernment which i.s the only kind of government that is .effective in a Ilepublic.

Intellectuality is said to be his outstanding' characteristic. He is the'master of. several-languages and has made a deep study of the political institutions of the leading countries^ , Mr. Chen Is of pure Chibesse descent, his parents being Cantonese. He was bom in Trinidad and has spent ithe greater part of his life under the British flag. IJc was educated tor the law and for some years practiced in Port of Spain, the largpt town in Trinidad. Following upon visits to Europe., and rejsidence In England. France and Ireland, Mr. Chen went to China in i the summer of 1J(13. since when he has passed his tune in editing newspapers, printed! in English, and in his present cap tc- ity as Cantonese foreign minis ;er and leader of the Koumintang. For some unknown reason' the House of Representatives at Topeka has insisted that private banks shall not be required to take out a charter from the State, but may organize and conduct busine.ss without State supervision, just as a company might orgitnize tocarry on the grocery buslnl'lBS. It Is not likely, however. thaV much harm will lie done, when it becomes understood, na It ought to be, that n stockholder in this sort of a private bank, in case it fails, will b<> held liable for everything he has to make good tho loss to depositors.

T^is Is a matter of opinippi. 1 .raiilier than of :;ecord.

Ono gave us Lewelling. the other gav3 us Davis. But the t»op- ,ular ihterjest in politics is certainly quickencfl by the primary. Two , or three nindred thousand Kansas peoiilo actually participate- in primaries. In the convcntitjns and caucuses, not one-tenth of this numbe»: ;iarticipated. That widen- P ed pai^tioijpation in politics, in a i state w:!b a tradition of honesty would jsreim onlthe face of it to be a net |.uain for pood governmv ->Pt. And jfurkhcr-affiant saith not." The foregoing -is so reasonable in the main that there is only one .statempnt! in it to which the Register would feel like taking exception. And that is the statement that "Thcj popular interest in poli- . tics is cwtainly quickened by the primary." We believe the direct opposite s the case. That more votiTs attend the primaries than attc}r\d«d the old pre-convenOon caucuscH does not prove tho Gazette's coiteutlon. The voters at- ien^l Hie prlniarlOH, 'hot becnuso I Ihei' are iituresleil In iinllilcs. but liiiiniHt- ttiey are luteri'sted In men '-or Woineii. rHiially there IK ftioiiKli d|N(-iiMMion In the niiWHpa- iiurs iit>oul llll) viiriDiiM cinidldntuH for (ioYeriior; .ConKrl 'HsmiJn or Scn- ulbr, tj^ ciclte'a feeling of Interest in many yolers.

Over in Missouri Democratick supporters of tlie McXar.v-Haugen bill accuse Senator Reed of fighting the measuri in order deliberately to "sacrjifice the farmers" and to "convince the ea.stern party leader 's that he is safe and sane." While here in Kansas Senatpr Capper can see in President Coolidge's veto of tlie bill nothing but the "opposition of powijrful eastern interests." rioos it never occur to those who supported this extraordinary measure that a man might oppose it for entirely honest and patriotic reasons? Why not exercise a little tolerance, especially over a question so mahy -sided as this whole problem of farm relief, and discuss the measure upon its merits instead,of imputing dishonest motives jto those who take a dlff<)rent yiew from the one we uphold? The men who ^loii't like the Pros- ideht's veto Of IheJ McNary-Haugen wonder how a - man <'an get a reputation for taciturnity when he takes K.OOO words lo say ".NO"!
