great corn-producing states of the
Southwest Kansas, Nebraska, Mis

these States yielded 735,000,000

rainfall has been reported as no
more than 72 per cent, or normal.

The Davis bill providing for vot
ing machines to be used at elections
in Pennsylvania was vetoed by Gov.
Tener. The bill was much debated
in tho recent session and It was' An
ally arranged that counties could
have machines at their option. The
governor says: "This bill is objec
tionable for the reason that If such
Innovation is to become part of the
election laws it should bo general
in its scope and not made optional
with tho various county commission
ers throughout tho state. Such a
provision, In my Judgment, would
utterly destroy tho uniformity of
voting which Is essential."
Supreme Court Justice Goff de
cided recently that there Is such an
offence as disorderly conduct, and
dismissed a writ of habeas corpus
sued out by Sidney Cohen, who had
been sentenced to the workhouse for
this transgression by a City Magis
trate. In his petition asking to be
released Cohen declared that the
Magistrate who sentenced him was
without Jurisdiction because there is
no such offence under tho statutes
now In force. The court decided
that the laws give ample authority
for committing persons charged with
disorderly conduct "because It is be
yond human Ingenuity in tho Eng
lish language to specify and par
ticularize all the acts of reckless or
vicious men In a populous city that
may tend to be a breach of the
peace." The court also held that
there Is no appeal from a commit

in enacting the law the Legislature
has seen fit to withhold the right of

HAY GOOD IX WAYNE COUNTY
A heavy crop of hay was cut on the
Hubbard farm this week.
On Judgo Searlo's farm, at Slko4
timothy stood five feet six inches tall.
Other sections in Wayne county
the hay crop is reported good.
In New York state the crop is far
below the average. Dispatches from
Broome and other New York state
counties state that the crop will be
low In quality and quantity over
most of tho eastern hay sections.
The western hay crop Is reported
to bo good.
The hay grown In the eastern sec
tion of Wayne county is better than
at first expected. It is thick and tall
grpwth. The moro money spent on
the meadows for fertilizer the larg
er the crop. Wayne county farmers
can no longer expect to reap large
and abundant crops without fertiliza
tion. The old meadows run out If
they are not renewed.
DIRECT ELECTIONS IS
SOURCE OF WORRY
Fcnr States Will Fn to Provide
Funds for Selecting Senators lle-
Complications are predicted as
certain to arise over the installation
of the direct election method for
the selection of United States Sena
tors. Most of the trouble is expect
ed to result from the failure of State
Legislatures to provide promptly, ap
propriate methods for carrying out
the recent amendment to the con
stitution for tho direct senatorial
Leaders of the Senate majority
are more anxious about the situation
than the Republicans. Should' two
or more vacancies on the Democratic
side of the chamber occur the narrow

There are thirty-two senatorial
terms which will expire on March
1915. Some of the States affected
already have provided a method of
popular election of Senators, but a
great number of them have not, and
vacancies caused by death or resigna
tion may call at any time for a popu
Democratic members of the Com
mittee" on Privileges and Elections
have considered the advisability of
having a national law prescribing a
method applying to all States alike.
To do this Congress would exercise
its power under the constitution to
revise State regulation as to the
time and manner of selecting Sena
tors, a step which never has ap
pealed to Southern Senators. No
sooner had the suggestion of Feder
al Legislation been made than they
entered a protest and the idea has
been abandoned. ,
The Legislature, 'of Georgia, re
cently enacted legislation in regard
to the placing of the names of Sena
tors on the ballots and has elected
the first Senator by this method.
The Florida Legislature decided it
already had sufficient laws for this
purpose. The Texas Legislature has
been called to meet in a special ses
sion to consider, among other things
the passing of laws for election ma
chinery in accordance with the
The Governor of Maryland has de
cided he is empowered under exist
ing laws to Issue a writ of election
to fill the unexpired term of the late
Senator Rayner. Senator Jackson
is now serving by designation of the
Governor. Such constitutional law
yers of the Senate as Senator Root
and Sutherland are said to enter
tain doubt as to the power of the
Governor to Issue the writ, and the
appearance of a new Senator from
Maryland to take the oath of office
may mark the initial fight in the
Senate over the Senatorial election
The situation is complicated by the
amendment further limiting the Gov
ernor's power to fill vacancies in the
Senate. In the past a Governor has
filled vacancies occurring when the
legislature was not in session.
Hereafter a Governor may not fill
a vacancy unless the legislature of
his State has empowered him to make
temporary appointments until the
people may fill the vacancies by elec
tion as the legislature may direct.
The Democratic Congressional
Committee has had the matter called
to its attention, and it may take
steps to urge the States to pass leg
islation as quickly as possible.
It will see to It that all the States
that elect Senators for the terms be
ginning in 1915 act before that
time. Should vacancies occur during
the pendency of the tariff act. In
States where suitable machinery Is
not now provided, It Is understood
the committee would at once urge
the convening of the State legisla
tures to authorize the Governors to
appoint and to provide for tho plac
ing of candidates for Senator on the
ballots in future elections.
