Laramie Paper Opposes Repeal of Primary Law (Laramie Republican.) The two measures introduced by Senator Oviatt in the senate with reference to the primary law have been side- tracked, and yesterday a third bill was sent in by Senator Kabell of Uinta county, which is simply an act to repeal the primary election law and to remove it entirely from the statutes. The Republican believes that this is going too far. It is understood that another measure is being introduced today which while amending the present law and seeking to remedy some of its defects, (and the Republican believes that there things in the present law which need chang- ing) yet will not do away with the primary principle, and will let it remain as a court of resort, which of course is the essential idea underlying the present law. It IN to be hoped that the Kabell bill will not be passed, but that the substitute measure will receive the attention and approval of both houses of the legislature. The primary principle is too valuable a one to be chucked over altogeth- er, even if the present law has defects and needs alteration. Undoubtedly Senator Oviatt's views will be more near ly met by the substitute measure, as his efforts were large- ly focused on trying to cure some of the non-workable fea- tures of the present law rather than its destruction.

The report was signed by Sena- tors Dillon and Fonda and Repre- sentatives Smith and Beebe. It covered at some length the opera- tions of the department since the reorganization of 1919, and evenjior and Mrs. went into the matter of employes The Sinn Feiners cleared pedes- trians from the streets and then fired several volleys.

It related that the committee had been assured by Superinten- dent McCalmau that he had been trying to overcome the evil of private use of autos and that he hoped he would be able to achieve this end within a short while. Senate Argues. Reading of the report in the senate was followed by a lengthy discussion. Lee read a sheaf of telegrams sent from various parts of the state and commending the work of the department. Dillon said that, generally speaking, the committee had found that the job had been extraordinarily well done. Sibley said he knew who had inspired the telegrams and that they were a part of a state-wide propaganda. He declared the committee had not had time to make a well-founded report; that he aiW "his fellow citizens had been before the highway commis- sion and had not even been treat- ed with common decency. If a new highway bond issue were to be submitted to the voters at this time, he asserted, it would not get ten votes at Burns.

Plane Traveling Cheap as Taxis It about as much to take an airplane in London as it does to ride in a New York taxi. That's the calculation of Prof. E. P. Warner of the Massachu- setts Institute of Technology and a member of the national advis- ory committee for aeronautics. "The charge in England for an air says Warner, "is 44 cents a mile for two persons, and an airplane can usually be had at an hour's notice. "That is approximately the same as riding by taxi in New York." Harding Turns Hand to Task of Cabinet Making ST.
