"Washington., D. politicians haven't finished studying the official [inures of the presidential election just compiled and the chances are jihey will not finish for nvny months to come. For thp final data presents much food for thought and cannot hue have n significant effect on the plans of Independents to form a per- manent third party organization. Notwithstanding tho great popular. ity of Theodore "Roosevelt he did not in 1912 poll as many votes as did yolleltp in 102-1, but allowance must he for t he fact that did j not vote 1" years ago.

Under the circumstances ihp prob- ipm of HIP Progressives nnd Inde- pendents is to find a way not only to '-nmhino the "L.-iFollettto nnd Davis totals but to win back from the "Re- publican ranks the millions or Dem- ur.ratic voters who strayed from the fold bcc.-iupo of a fp.nr "f tho radicals i sin of I.nFollPlio or that thp election would be thrown into the of representatives for decision nnd that business would suffer because of the ppriorl of nncerir.inly.
