A olancb at the following figures will
demonstrate that the O. O. P. is by far
the liveliest of the three out In Iowa, and
ifthere are any dead ouea It la by no
means tbe Republican party: In 1912 tbe
vote in the Second Congressional distrlot
of Iowa was; Democratic, 19.371; Progres
sive, 13,000; Republican, 8,303. At last
Tuesday's special election tbe vote was,
Democratic, 12.614; Republican, 10,975;
Whkn In Washington the other day
William Flinn, tbe recognized and ac
cepted boss of the bull moose party, said
that if Col. Roosevelt would retire front
active leadership in tbe bull moose party
then be, Flinn would act witb tbe Demo
crats and give them bia financial support.
Boss Flinn bas a perfect right to vote with
the party of bis choice, but be bas no
right to masquerade as a Republican
bunting political reform and at tbe same
time give hl support and slush fund to
help tbe Democrats.
Evkn before the campaign in tbe state
baa lairly opened tbe Democratic factions
are at war. President Wilson bas de

candidates for the Democracy of tbe state
and Independent members of tbe party
are viciously resenting the President's
interference. Iu tbe meantime tbe reg

work of preparing for party primaries at
which the voters shall determine upon
the party's candidates, and prospects for
Republican success never were brighter.
Thb announcement by tbe veteran
Henry M. Houck, of Lebanon, that be
would again be a candidate for secretary
of Internal Affairs on tbe Republican
ticket well nigh settles the matter as to
that ofHee, for bis universal popularity
throughout tbe State will undoubtedly
land bitn for the third time In the position
be bas beld since 1907. A flood of letters
from friends in all parts of the State ask
ing bim to again allow bis name to go be
fore tbe people determined bis course,
and it la doubtful whether any opposition
wortb mentioning will develope against
tbo grand old man.
Thk Philadelphia Public Ledger,
speaking of the vitality and recuperative
powers of the Republican party, says:
"The country demands a party wbicb,
while not static, shall be stable; a party
witb its face hopefully set toward the
future, but whose forward march shall be
evolutionary and not revolutionary, Tbe
Republican party bas bad wonderful re
cuperative qualities. It has been pro
nounced dead several times, as youthful
scribblers, with short memories, are now
writing Its obituary. A ller tbe election
of 1890, wbicb returned but 88 Republi
cans to tbe lower bouse of Congress, and
again when tbe Cleveland landslide ol
1892 came, the last nail was pronounced
driven and clinched in its coffin, but it
survived to give tbe Democracy an awful
drubbing in four successive presidential

Basket Ball at Clarington.
Clabinuton, Pa., Feb. 14, 11114.
'flic Clurington High School basket hall
team tuckled the "jinx" that has been fol
lowing them lutcly and beat him on
"double jinx day," Friduy, the thirteenth,
by handing the Sigel High team a "jinx"
defeat il-l.'l. It was a different team than
the one that played Kellettvllle a week ago.
The hoys were all confident and set out to
win at the sound of the whistle. It was a
good game from the start, the boys from
Sigel giving the locals a hard fight. Both
teams played good clean ball throughout
and the game was not decided until the
11 1 1 ul whistle blew. Every man in the
game distinguished himself by his good
clean work, but the guarding and passing
of James lleasley, who prevented Cyphert,
Sigrl's star, from scoring, and the shooting
of Ivan Royer were clearly the features of
the contest. Iloycr played against Hoy,
w ho was head and shoulders taller, yet ho
fairly outdid himself and played Hoy off
Ins feet. The team plays at Clarion High
