Next year DEFENDS HIS COURSE IN PENSION MATTERS Ruling of Secretary of Stats Graves Fixes Qualifications for Primary Voting, Congressman Carl C.

V. rsgimants at Marion. Whether he will have opposition is a question, no one having yet besn announced as a possible candidate for tj'ie nomina- tion, although there has beert some hostile talk. Anderson indicated in his speech to the veterans that he is "standing pat" on his pension bill. He severely criticized Gen.

A ruling on the qualifications rf electors who will take part in tlie September primary has been given Uy Secretary of State Graves, as election officer of the state. Tt was requested by C. A. McDonald, a prom- inent resident of Cleveland, and a copy of the ruling was sent to the Cuynhoga county election board. Regarding the party affiliation re- quired to permit a man to participate in the primary, Secretary Graves said that it is impossible to make an In- flexible rule to apply to each and ey- ery case. As a general rule a person should only be held to be affiliated with a. party when his vote showed that he thereby indorsed and advocated principles of the party -with which he claims affiliation. His vote must show that he be- lieves in the principles of the party, and that those principles may lie enacted, he desires that party to succeed at the polls. This would be shown by the vote of the individual1 for a majority of the state ticket of a party, for the candidate of said party for congress and for the state senator and Anything less than thte would ba insufficient to indicate that a man affiliated with a party. In ng the affiliation, the vote of ihe in- dividual for the county possibly be disregarded. The appli- cant should be given an opportunity ;o explain his vote but it must b0 shown it was cast from principle and conviction and was not influenced by ocal issues, enmity for candidates. personal friendship or spite. This is in line with a ruling by Attorney General Hogan. DETROIT AVIATOR TO FLY FOR BIG PRIZE DETROIT, Mich., Aug. A. Tanner.
