The result of the Progressive vote
New York as to nomination of
Governor Whitman or Judge Se&bury
as the Progressive candidate, for the
gubernatorial position - shows nothing.
The percentage of voteB polled ywas
too small to base an estimate , oh in
dealing with a forecast -of the presi
dential vote .of the Empire State - In
Noyember.. .This . inadequacy can. be
coupled with., the fact that in al State
like New York something may occur,
is very apt to, in; the next six -Weeks
that would, change many yotes. It?'
also evident that- only the 'smaller
portion of the voters "participated 'In
aJl the primaries in New; York; State;
With such a small vote, with no
National questions involved between
Whitman and Seabury, it is difficult
t see how a reasonable forecast can
be predicated upon the result.
This is not Democratic solace be
cause Whitman received more votes
! in tne Progressive primary than. Sea-
bury. If it is to be construed as such
and Republicans desire to make the
Progressive vote the political yahe
the Democrats would have every
reason to rejoice. Basing signs upon
Ihe mathematics of the result, Demo
cratic victory would be indicated. Of
the Progressive votes cast Seabury
received over one-third. Carry " this
proportion to a conclusion, applying
it to the President and basing it on
tbe Progressive vote of four years
ago, Wilson would not only have a
clean majority of all votes, but a big
Mathematically it is easy to reach.
this conclusion. In 1912 the Demo
cratic presidential ticket polled 655.-
475 votes in New York, the Republi
cans polled 455,428, and the Progres
sives 390,021. Base gains upon the
result in the Whitman-Seabury con
test and it will be found that the Dem
ocrats would win a big victory. Sea
bury received over one-third the Pro
gressive votes. Apply this to the
390,021 votes in 1912 and the answer
is plain. Give the Democrats one-
third of the Progressive votes, add
ing that one-third to their former vote
and it will be seen that they will
have a big majority in New York
over the Republican ticket, with its
vote of four years ago, plus twot-
thirds of the Progressive votes.
If the Republicans are wont to gloat
over the Whitman victory over Sea
bury, as an indication, they will fall
with a dull thump.
YES, ANYTHING TO BEAT WILSON
So crazed with sectionaiphobia has
become Senator Lodge that he recent
ly charged that President Wilson was
sending-Northern troops to the border
and not Southern. Of course, the
reasonable man knew that Northern
troops could probably be mobilized
quicker, especially as in the great
cities there are regiments instead of
merely companies, but it was not Sen
ator Lodge's game to admit it. How
ever, what should he now say, in all
fairness, when the administration : re
lieves Northern trbops at the front,
sending Southern soldiers to take
their places, and election time is so
near at hand. If politics, "how cum"
the President would substitute cer
tain Democratic voters for doubtful
voters just at this time?
Yet rthe administration relieved
New York regiments with Tennessee
troopfi, and is toy relieve Pennsylva
nia ? soldiers with Tar Heel regi
ments. Senator Lodge and his kind might
also take notice of the fact that so
true was report of discomfiture and
discontent among the American
troops at the border that three hun
dred New York soldiers haye made

"We heard (Stated .that Mrs.' Thomas
will apply to Governor Craig for a par

Craig will tell her to thank her God
that her drunken husband, guilty of
infidelity, escaped as easily as he did."
Thus quoth the Greensboro Record
in re the case of the man Thomas,
found guilty in Wake county a week
ago. The Record at least has it right
about what the Governor should think,
even if he "clothed his denial in more
gentle language. '
The Greene county mob, that made
a successful sortie into Lenoir not
long ago and that necessitated brist
ling guns 'at a later trial has now to
shoulder the responsibility of the
death of the high sheriff. ' It is report
ed that excitement, "due to the sheriff
