Results of the primaries throughout the country show the present situation of the Klan.

Charles W. Waterman, anti-Klan candidate, won the Republican nomination for U. S. Senate in Colorado, defeating Rice W. Means, who ran as a Klan candidate.

The Klan received a blow in Louisiana, where Senator Broussard, who was renominated, faced the combined opposition of the Klan and the anti-Saloon League.

Frederick W. Steiwer, who defeated R. N. Stanfield for the Republican Senatorial nomination in Oregon, is understood to have had the active support of the Klan.

Senator Harreld is running for reelection in Oklahoma, and it is the general understanding that he has strong Klan support.

In some quarters Ohio is looked upon as a strategic spot should the Colorado Klan repudiation develop into a nation-wide movement.
