Any politician win be able to prove jilmost anything to suit his fancy 'from the figures reflecting the pres- ent political complexion of the coun- ty, which ar,e presented on another page/ • ••**!.,.;•?. If it%e assumed that the enrollment expresses a-fouecast of the next vote, that vote should • stand about as fol- lows: Democratic, 1866; Republican, 2251, Progressive, 1276; the latter fig- ures being taken from the Progres- sive vote for governor. This would seem to leave the county Republican by 242 votes. But just here comes in an element to which little attention has been paid, the vote which will not affiliate and which did not vote the Progres- sive ticket in the last election, the ultimate independent vote of the county. There are 353 of these voters and under the present conditions they have the final say in the elections of the county. At the last election they unanimously voted the Democratic ticket and there is no reason to think that in the future they will vote other- wise. It lies in their power to make the next board of supervisors almost solidly Democratic and with tickets made up of the best men to be found, the Democratic party may reasonably expect the continued support of this independent vote. Another point worth noting is that the Democrats increased their enroll- ment by 81 in the face of a hot Pro- gressive right, while the Republicans lost 489 voters from their enrollment. With an aggressive third party in the field, the prospects for continued Dem- ocratic supremacy are very bright. There are no indications of any in- T3rea^!u^§ittHiil® *ke ranks of the Bull Moojse H^HK 1 '' any considerable number, of ProgSHpes will return to the Republican folcfy Rather the drift is toward Democracy, both in the mat- ter of enrolled voters and in the atti- tude of the independent, vote. «i»#iMUi(Ji 0Uk<$$ myfp 0EMO1CR nSBflUAHY V, 1913. .I :'!«H&.FALLS' /Msp,\! io spending the wsel!; wittlher parents; at New Ber- lin.

IAll report a pleasant time. TURIN MEXICAN AFFAIRS. The situation in Mexico is exasper- ating to every patriotic American. Committed by the Monroe doctrine to the preservation- of order on the two American continents, at least where foreign interests are threatened, we have to sit by and see our own and foreign investments in Mexico jeop- ardized, the lives o'f our citizens im- periled and the members of a consti- tutional government murdered in cold blood, by a people who hate us, and we are powerless to prevent these out- rages against civilization. The course adopted by the Presi- dent .of preparing for eventualities while not actually intervening is, of ' course, the wise course to persue. The -'. last thing the American people want is a Var with Mexico, but unless some leader arises strong enough to pre- serve order and protect life and prop- erty, the time will come when the United States will be forced to in- 7 tervene' with its army, in the interests ' of humanity, '- •W UP T(9 1\HE GRANGES. A little more activity on the part of the granges in- connection with the .Lewis County Farm Improvement As- sociation, organized to act a s a sort of official god-father to a Farm Bu- reau, would greatly facilitate the or- ganization, -of the latter. \'• r 9h^«lmatter is progressing but with more vim put into it the progress would be greatly accelerated. The granges, which have th e privilege of naming the directors of the Farm Im- provement Association have had time to make their selections, and some have done so, but others have not. It is a matter which ought to receive their immediate attention. WEST LEYDEN. The spelling contest between the 11 districts of the town of Lewis, was j held at West Leyden in the grange hall, Friday afternoon. The teachers with their pupils met at the village school ,-Wliere they were received by Miss Traxel and Miss Tine, after which they went in a body to the hall, where the contest took place. The large hall was crowded to its full capa- city by parents and friends of the children in the contest, and great in- terest and enthusiasm was shown in the event. Miss Edna Schmoker fa- vored the gathering with a fine vocal solo and responded to an encore, after which Prof. Grubel, of the Boonville Training Class, pronounced the words to the contestants in a very able and satisfactory manner. The contest was spirited and hard fought, lasting nearly two hours, and resulted in a draw between school districts No. 3, Raymond Beha, teacher, and No. 5, Elsie Grubel, teacher; No. 6, Ethel M. Trainor, teacher. Superintendent Trainor presented each of the winning schools with a championship banner to hold at their respective schools until the draw is broken in some fu- ture contest, and some school carries off the championship banner. Much credit is due the pupils, the teachers and the parents for the excellent showing made. The committee in charge consisted of the following teachers: Miss Mary E. Traxel 1, chair- man ; Miss Clara Tine, Miss Ethel M. Trainor, Miss Elsie M. Grubel, Miss Elsie M. Pohl, Miss Eloyse M. Marcy, Raymond Beha, Eugene Rotary, and Superintendent Winfield Trainor. . m&fl— HT The country correspondents have 1 gnttffe/dut the early candle light again. URROGATE'S COURT.

The county highway meeting of town officers of Lewis county will be held at the court house, in the village of Lowville, on Wednesday, March 5. at 2 p. m. Section 47, subdivision 10, of the highway law provides that the town superintendents shall attend such meetings, and it is requested that all town officers attend. It is thought that a question box might add interest to the meeting. Therefore I would suggest that every- body, both ladies and gentlemen, who are interested in the highways of Lewis county, come and come prepar- ed to ask questions and discuss sub- jects of general or local interest. Dated at Croght_ N. Y., this 17th day of February, 1913. C. E. PUTMAN, County Supt. of Highways. Turin Wins Again. Another week has passed, and again the Blue Sox have come out on top. Saturday evening they were up against a bunch that called themselves the Remington Arms team. My, what a Port Leyden settlement there must be in Ilion. One face was familiar to all; that of \Sunny Jim\ Doud, who will be remembered as' playing on the Blue Sox last season. The Ilion team started in as if they thought that all tney had to do was to rough the locals a little and that they would have them climbing trees. Nay! Nay! Pauline! The fates did not have it written thus on the sands of life. The Blue Sox got started at once and went through that Ilion bunch just like the \Millionaire Kid\ through a bank ac- count. Honest, Hortense, there was nothing to it. Roberts and Smith led In the scoring with 10 points apiece. Smith made one the first half a' la 1 Toby Matthews. One of those shots made with a thumb and a little finger. Captain Manning, as usual—that's ail. Readers kindly look up account of last game, S points to his credit. The work of Stone and Hoskins in the back field was fine from start to fin- ish. Wrape starred for the visitors, The score when \Doc\ called time was Blue Sox, 30; Ilion, 17.

Mr. Kidder was educated at Turin union school and has a host of friends who deeply sympathize with the stricken family in their sad be- reavement.
