A WMklf 1*1. YOl- DROP THK TO GO BA.CK TO THIS! Readers politically minded whoe« memories run back to pre-prlmary times will be Interested 'In the story of an old-fashioned fighting; republican convention In Carroll county when the late Sen I. Salinger waa In flower, ad told by Editor S 1 . A. Mpscrip, of the Marshalltown Tlmea-Re- "publloan, In an editorial reprinted at the foot of the next column. This battle was but one of many In Carroll county under the old caucus and convention eye- tem, and not in Carroll county only did such battles occur, but In every other county In Iowa. There is not a township In the state lacking men yet living who can relate similar stories, and In many counties there are still oldtimers who also vividly recall like battles In state and national conventions. Our own county of Kossuth was for many years typical fighting ground as regards bat- .Ming republican county conventions. Not to go farther back, there were outstanding republican battles In 1900 and 1902 which scores of republicans who fought on one elde or the other can never forget. The generation .which has .grown up under the primary system possesses no conception of politics in Iowa as It existed In the time of the preceding generation. Late Young called it a great game, and he was right. In the Koseuth battle of 1900 the principal fig- men not of greAt talent are elevated to high office—as If, forsooth, in tlinw of simitar dearth of political genius the, old system of cUss rule dlfl"not-function in exactly the flame; way! •The primary system occasionally does, It Is true, nominate mlaflts, but that Is not the fault of the system, nor was the case different In caucus and convention time*. No system has ever created genius or ever will. Great men are scarcer than hen's teeth. Within the confines of a single state a whole generation may go by without producing a Dolllver. This was as true In the old days as it Is now, but this generation cannot see It because It lives In the present and does not know what went before. Besides, our times, primary or no primary, do not favor the exaltation of political heroes as previous times did. Add to all this the well known fact that big men are seldom recognized as such till they have passed on, and you have the explanation of why seemingly few great figures have been developed under the primary system. As for the common run of public office holders, there Is every reason to believe that comparison would show • better quality today, not because the present officeholders were named under the primary system but merely because education Is now far more widespread and the times therefore call for the type of men who give better service. M ures wure Gardner Cowles and the late Clarke. Mr. Cowles was serving his A. D. second term as representative. The political rule then was one term and out, but Mr. Cowles stood for a second term. Mr. Clarke had previously served one term, and he opposed Mr. Cowles for the nomination. Harvey Inghnm was chief lieutenant for Mr. Cowles, and Geo. C. Call for Mr. Clarke. The campaign which followed was the most heated and desperate in the county's history. In every precinct there was an Intensive struggle for the delegation to the county convention. Caucuses were called by the precinct chairmen, but they were not all held at the same time and the procedure varied. In some canes a handful Topics of the limes of local politician turned out and delegation, usually handplcked for named the one candidate or the other. In other precincts a sort of primary election was held,, with tickets listing opposing delegations. Towards the last money began to play a part in influencing votes, and it was reported that where money was not used lieer or hard liquors, in some instances, took its place. J^ong before the end the struggle had turned into a bitter personal fight for the mastery. The ultimate decision lay with Burt township, last to name a delegation. The opposing candidates came up to Burt practically equal in delegate strength, and possession of the Burt delegation meant victory in the convention. A township primary election was culled by the precinct chairman (W. C. Dewel), who voluntarily picked J. R. Blossom for the Cowles forces and Frank Allen for the Clarke forces to serve with him UK judges of election. Now the fight became more bitter than ever. Never before had Burt seen .such a battle, never since. Votes, it was currently reported, were sold at £10 a head, and the more unprincipled voters sold themselves to both sides. Burt went for Cowles, who a few weeks later was duly nominated in convention and then served his second term. What has happened In Russia and what is now. threatened in Germany la symptomatic of what will in time face other great nations if wealth continues to resist assumption of its fair share of the burden of maintaining society; and this Is said in full recognition of the economic fact that wealth must be permitted to accumulate In the hands of men who know how to use It skil- fully. , President Hoover said at Indianapolis: "The R. BERFIELD, f Kfi tOWA PAULS fcroeer who seek* to out-Jimmy' Algontt'a Jimmy Neville, has been gallivanting around. Listen to his last week's advertisement in the Cltlten— Howdy folks, I sort of snuck out on you, haven't written a line for 4 weeks, right when Ira [Nichols, the editor] needed the money for. his blgr trip [to Europe]. Hardly expected to go away this summer, really couldn't afford it, but my foot got to Itching terrible bad and when I heard about all that hot weather coming I Just naturally hitched up old Liz, loaded up some groceries and ' beat It for the everlasting hills, had .frost one night -while you all were enjoying about 110 in the shade. At til A Review d t T Jklw by t, H.C EORGE NATHAN, The political and personal animosities engendered in this historic campaign lingered x many years, may nut be dead yet in a few bosoms. Two year* Later they flared up again, in a degree, when a county ticket was to be named. In this campaign Mr. Cowles took no active part, but a ticket commonly understood to represent his forces'included,B. F. Sparks, of Bancroft, •for clerk, W. W. Alcorn, of Seneca, for recorder, and T. P. Harrington for county attorney. As recalled, there was no candidate for auditor on this ticket. On the other side were the late L. E. Potter for auditor, W. C. Dewel, for clerk, J. J. Blshoff, of Lakota, for recorder, and F. M. CurtiSB for county attorney. Mr. Clarke, who undue proportion of taxes which falls upon farmers, home-owners, and all real property holders, as compared to other forms of wealth and Income, demands real relief." Now let the standpat organs of Iowa hasten to denounce the president as a Bolshevist! On his own motion, George Gallarno, of Plain Talk, has begun suit to test the validity of the so-called salary grab law. This is a public service whicli in view of the -widespread discussion of the law in question it was well to undertake. Iowa, says Senator Brookhart, will support Pinchot or Borah for president. The senator would stand better with a lot of observers who would like to support him if he did not drive them off every now and then with rash assertions which everybody know* are without foundation. Iowa will support Hoover for a second term. Replying to an inquiry from President Hoover concerning the proposed German debt moratorium, Congressman Gilchrlst endorsed the idea but suggested that something ought also to be done to relieve American farmers who face foreclosure or mortgages. Mr. Gilchrist is quite right. The mortgage interest rate should somehow be reduced to a figure-which can be met out of present prices for farm products. As a means of reducing taxation it is proposed to consolidate counties. This, it is to be feared, would be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. No scheme of consolidation would work out effectively unless it embraced large territories, and that would involve removal of county government from the sphere of local control. Our trip was Jokingly referred to nj» a honey .moon because my wife and I' went off alone together, what I mean we were together and nobody else waa with us. Oh,- heck, you know what I mean, anyhow when a feller has reached my age a honey moon is no Joke. If anybody cares we had a splendid trip, covered parts of 8 states in a leisurely way, visited a lot of country I had , -never seen before including some of the grandest scenery in Colorado-oil the seldom visited western slope. I wish to thank you all for the way you kept the money rolling In to the store, takes quite, a lot of gas. to travel 4,000 miles and it is high some places, we paid all the way from 9.9 to 30c. We ought to have some cheap flour this winter, Kansas has a wonderful wheat crop, selling for 36c a week ago Saturday. We took enough FAIRWAY, the world's finest coffee to last till we got back. I Just don't like any other brand and wouldn't take no chances. We spent several days in old Santa Fe, we sometimes think of the west as new but Santa Fe was the capital of an Important colony "before the Pilgrims landed and has been- a eeat of government ever since, her governors used the same building for 300 years and It Is still In use- as a museum, -built of mud and logs at that. The oldest church In the United Statee still holds regular services In Santa Fe. Santa Fe-'s streets are as narrow and" crooked as Boston's and there isn't a traffic light in town, no street cars and only two buiUfnge have elevators, you are likely to park your high powered Ford by a team, of flop eared burrow* with 1 what they axil a load of wood brought 'down from the mountains, about as much as you- could! carry in a couple of trips. All of this Is mightly interesting to me bot it ain't selling no garden seeds, next week em? we will have some startling specials, I ain't gtjihg-.- to tell you about them here but I will have my usual artistic hand painted signs in the window- lar dramatic critic- for Vanity and Judge, author of 20-odd books «tf criticism, h«* an article in tfte July torum entitled The Play Is Stitt the Thing, in which he attempts to minimize the Importance of talkies. He says: "But in the talking pictures It Is required Of the apectator, first, that he Imagine the photographs of the actors to be real, living actors: secondly, that he then see them not tia actors but a» characters in a play; thirdly, that— save in scenes photographed from nature — he forget, as in the theatre, that an artlHclalHtudlo set Is artificial; fourthly, that he remit his Judg* ment that it te n mechanical- contrivance which is Imitating the human voices; fifthly, that he remit his Judgment that it Is often the camera and not his own eye — 'as-. In the theatre— that Is sweeping the scene; sixthly, that he adapt his imagination to the wildly multifarious and Wildly' sudden shlfto-bf .locale; and seventhly, that he become used, after centuries, to an abandonment of Aristotelian .unities and at the same time be persuaded by dramatic' effects." THE REMAINDER, of Mr. than's criticism runs along Na- tfte Opinions of the Editors was supporting Potter and Curtlss, was supposed to have the .second ward o£ Algona and the Crefico and Klverdale delegations in his vest pocket, and Messrs. Dewel and Bishoff each controlled a bloc of 15 or 20 votes. Whether it was .so or not. the opposition ticket deemed it necessary to form a combination to insure victory in the convention. In Judge Quarton'H office the night before the convention the candidates and their lieutenants came to an agreement, and next morning their delegations as they arrived were taken before the Judge to confirm the understanding. In the convention the elate was duly named till county attorney was reached, when some of the pledged delegates broke away and Harrington waa nominated. It will be noted that the delegations controlled by the victorious candidate had no opportunity to exercise a real choice except on the candidate to whom they were pledged. This campaign, too, left fitter memories, of -which the democrats took advantage, and Potter and Dewel were elected only 'by narrow majorities. Those were the halcyon (lays of the local boss, the inevitable concomitant of the caucus and convention system. Every precinct had its leader In this first, third, and fourth wards in Ateona, leadership was somewhat divided, but in the second ward Mr. Clarke was almost the un- disputeii master, and in the other precincts of the county there was usually a single boss who had a few lieutenants. Prominent among them as the <vntury opened were Geo. W. Hanna, Lu Verne- C!eo. K. Boyle, \Vhittemore; S. X. Way, Julius r.-unz. and Fred Anderson, Wesley; Al IJite Turner are Rare. Emmetsburg Democrat—At the June meeting of the Baldwin and Nashville Farmers Union at Maquoketa, ex:-Senator Chas. S. Browne said that only once in a lifetime do Iowa voters have such a man in their state house as Governor Turner, because he works for the people. He was praised for paying $60ft an hour out of his own pocket in broadcasting to them. "Ilfng" Has a lllffger Job Already. Hampton Chronicle—Ding- can do more good for the people of Iowa right in his present position of spreading loyalty and good cheer than he can do for them as a member of the United States senate. And, right now, too, it is of untold value to have him right where he can offset the "boring from within" propaganda which the paper on which he is employed allows to be published by about every scavenger news service in the country, Ding is a patriot, and he does not allow any red propaganda to get into his cartoons under the guise of "printing all the Hot Summer Rollers In tlte I'rlntshops.

In Algona there were many who shared 'iredominatinK influence, such as Messrs. Cowles, iJisham, and Call. M. P. Weaver, Mr. Hun-ins; on, L. J. Dickinson, Mr. Curtlss, F. W. Ding-ley. W. C. Danson, K. J. Oilmore, and a score o! others. One would have to consult the i rosters oC the conventions of 1900, 1902, and 1904 to list them all, not only for Algona but for the county it large, and many of that clay who read this will recall names which ought to be included. It was the local bosses and their satellites who ran the (ire-primary caucuses and conventions, the fact which Editor Moscrlp fails [Marshalltown Times-Republican.] The death of Ben I. Salinger, once notable attorney, politician, and judge of the Iowa supreme court, recalls the bitter struggle in Iowa politics more than a quarter of a century ago, particularly a republican convention in Carroll county where excitement ran seriously high, and where Salinger and Warren Garat clashed for supremacy as anti-Cummins and pro-Cummins leaders. Ben took over the county chairman's job. It required nerve the [regular] 'official lacked. To understand how. sharp the contest was, this editor, covering the convention for a Cummins paper, was curtly refused admission to the hall, Contests were brought in practically every township that had Instructed a Cummins delegation and the credentials refused, while those of the anti-Cummins delegations, mostly self- appointed or selected by his opposition, were to be seated. The doors were locked, and the then county chairman stood at the door on THE TOLEDO CHRONICLE believes that' in; comparison with surrounding towns and cities,, large and: small, that Toledo is in. the best financial condition it has been for years.—ffi:.

And they ex- Lsted nol in Kossuth and Carroll counties alone but everywhere else in the state. Iowa was ruled not by the people at large but by a set of politicians. Not one-tenth of the common people had the slightest say about candidates for office tni,'h or low. The local bosses named the delegate. 1 * to county conventions, the county bowse* mimed the delegates to state conventions, and tlw state bosses picked the candidates for state offices and the delegations to national convention;; Mere John Doe and Richard Roe had no voice nt all except at election time, and then they were ruled by party prejudices. It was a wonderful machine, colorful to see in action, but designed to euchre the common man out of his political birthright and perpetuate government by the classes at the expense of the masses. Happily, we got away from all that a quarter of a century ago. The bosses, little and big, have for the most part gone their way into oblivion-, and today the people rule. And yet there are on the one hand old men like George Gallarno, ot Plain Talk, Tom Purcell, of the Hampton Chronicle, and Editor Moscrip, who early be- «-ame set in their ways, and, on the other, young jnen like W. Earl Hall, of the Mason City Globe- Oazette, personally ignorant of the evils of the old system, who would wreck the primary and go back to the days of the boss, the packed caucus, the dominated conventions, and the whole system of class rather than mass rule. And their excuse ii that under the primary system some guard. Newspaper men stood with him on the landing above the stairs leading to the hall. W. R. Orchard, then publisher of the Glidden Graphite, now of the Council Bluffs Nonpareil, a strong Cummins man, was among them. The crowd that was milling in the street below suddenly broke, and two by two, led by a broad-shouldered husky from Dedham, a column ascended the stnir.s. There was demand that the chairman guard bo thrown to the lions as the column marched up. Better counsel prevailed, and he was passed down between the lines, trembling, white-faced, anxious to go. The big boy from Dedham net his shoulder to the locked door and it melted before him. The Cummins delegations took their seats. Ben, whom nothing shook, appeared to protest and demand, but the Cummins men organized the convention, named the delegates, and instructed them. Such was politics in those days, when revolt against railroad domination of politics and candidates of legislatures kindled a revolt that turned the statehouse over and brought about much needed legislation. It marked the downfall of Salinger as leader of Carroll republicans and put Warren Garst on the road to the governorship. Those were stirring days in Iowa, precedent to stirring days in congress. It woe later when Uncle George Perkins wrote that great editorial, "Passing Between the Tellers"; that Dolliver made that classic speech on the rate question, an effort that equals if not exceeds Burke's effort In the Hastings trial, which has been a model to students of oratory: when George D. Perkins made the speech as temporary chairman of an enthusiastic Cummins convention; and when Bob Cousins, in another convention, referred to "the rodents of reform." Personal ambitions and political differences later brought about a contest for the governorship between Perkins and Cummins that was as bitterly urged as any campaign between strong and .able men in the history of the state. ^ Cummins is gone on. So Uncle George. So passed the fighting Healys; so Dolliver and most of the able fighting men of politics. But there were gianta in those days. : . You have to know the situation to. get the point of that. Toledo and Tama are- rival up- and-a' comin' towns only a mile apart, each with a doggoned good newspaper, and .recently the Chronicle and the News-Herald undertook 'a wordy debate, about which paper was best, but they had no more than got to going good before their graceless brethren around the state began to crowd the sidelines and laugh so hard that they were shamed out of it. THE QUIPSTERS are still quipping about the banquet of Rear Seat contribs which somebody proposed last winter.
