The Baltimore Sun says leaving
things to the plain common sense of
the American people is always the
safest plan in the long run. And
what a pity that rule was not follow

Democrats say there will be little
legislation passed by Congress this
winter. And there will probably be
very little for the next two years, as
they will never be able to agree on
any line of policy.
One Democratic paper announces
the names of twenty-six Democratic

Greensboro Record, (Dem.)
Brethren, let's quit talking about J
what a sweep the Democrats made inl
Tuesday's election. It was a sweep
all right the greatest ever but has
any one figured up from the returns
what it would have been with only
Mr. Roosevelt in the ring? Suppose
he had been nominated at Chicago in
stead of Taft We have not figured
it out. but some one has, to a cer
tain extent. Take the votes for Taft
and for Roosevelt, add them together,
State by State, and see the result.
And so it is we advise that the party
from this good day "walk terrapin,"
so to say, that is, fulfill its promises;
give the country the best kind of ad
ministration, so that four years hence
there will be something worth point
ing to. It was a great victory, but
there was a big "if" in it. The point
we are trying to make is that such a
victory may tend to make the party
cock sure to believe it is firmly en
trenched and cannot easily be dis
lodged. Maude Malone, the suffragette, was
found guilty in the Brooklyn, N. Y.,
