FIRE OH COX
Too Free With Promises,
Says New York World.
RADICAL MENACE FEARED
Ron-Partisan Leagae Said to Have
Xor Its Aim the Control of
V the Dominant Party.
OH EG ON I A N NEWS BUREAU,
Vashinffton. Sept. 28. Governor Cox
received a vigorous editorial spanking
today from his supporter, the New
Tork "World, for having1 been free
with promises on his campaign tour.
The worst thing the World can think
of tp say about Mr. Cox's perform
ances is that "he is talking- after the
manner of Senator Harding."
In another editorial the World
whole-heartedly approves the stand of
Senator Myers, democrat of Montana,
in opposition to the Montana demo
cratic state and congressional tickets,
which are manned almost entirely by
ttte non-partisan league.
Public Its Own Protector.
"When Governor Cox suggests the
establishment of a rotary fund by
congress for the purchase of crops
in order to prevent profiteering,"
eays the World, "he is talking after
the manner of Senator Harding, who
promises anything he happens to
"Nobody likes a profiteer, but no
government has yet devised effective
means of preventing profiteering ex
cept by methods that in themselves
are certain to lea to new evils. Poli
ticians like to tell the people what
they will do to the profiteers, Attorney-General
Palmer being the most
conspicuous example, but in the long
run the buying public must furnish
the larger measure of his own protec
tion. 'Candidates who pledge themselves
to reduce the cost of living are giving
promissory notes that are certain to
go to protest. The cost of living may
be reduced, but not because of any
thing that comes out of politics."
Relative to Senator Myers declara
tion of opposition to the non-partisan
league-democratic state and congres
sional tickets in Montana, the World
cays that such conditions as exist in
Montana, Colorado and North Dakota
could not be made possible without
the connivance of democratic and re
publican politicians who hoped to
profit by crooked work.
Conditions Held Chaotic
"Political conditions In Montana."
the World comments, "which have
caused United States Senator Myers,
a democrat, to bolt state and con
gressional tickets of his party, are
chaotic enough to justify all that he
has said and done. There is no dem
ocratic party in Montana and Colo
rado because the non-partisan league
has seized the organization, just as
there is no republican party In North
Dakota, and soon may not be in Min
nesota and Wisconsin, owing to sim
"The non-partisan league Is cor
rectly named, for its aim to control
the dominant party in the states
where it operates is pursued with
cynical disregard for everything ex
cept Its own Intrenchment in power.
Its success in pirating democratic
and republican emblems and author
ity with calm indifference to the con
tradiction involved is largely due to
the tricky primary laws of many
western states which open democratic
ballot boxes to republicans and re
publican ballot boxes to democrats.
Primnrj Raiding: Possible,
"Under the system there is nothing
to prevent one party from raiding
the primary of another, and it is by
taking advantage of the opportuni
ties thus offered that the non-partisan
league has won its most notable
victories. No such premium upon po
litical rascality and no such deadly
assault upon responsible party gov
ernment could have been offered or
made possible without the connivance
of democratic and republican politi
cians who hoped to profit by crooked
"Now that the extremists of the
non-partisan league have beaten them
at their own game and are turning
them out of house and home indis
criminately, perhaps Senator Myers
will find some true non-partisan sup
port In his effort to correct an evil
that is assuming menacing propor
tions." THIRD CUMISSim OUT

to take effect at once."
HARDING HAS BIG LEAD
(Continued From Kfrrt Pare.)
Harding that s the guy. I'm for
"I believe Harding is the man to
Jo that," he declared.
"Harding nothing," Jeered his com
panion. "Cox is for the booze."
"You're right." admitted the first
speaker. "Cox Is the man I meant. I'm
for him and booze."
On the strength of this argument
the remainder of the group went sol
idly for Cox.
Among the older men, however, the
opinion was freely expressed that
Harding would be elected,- notwith
standing the fact that they announced
their Intention of voting for Debs.
"WTe're voting for Debs because he's
ur man," the.' said. "But Harding
will be elected because the country is
tired of the democrats."
Women in the morning gymnasium
classes at Multnomah club might well
form a Harding auxiliary, for, with
very few exceptions, they are strong
for the republican candidate. Of about
125 women there yesterday 64 ex
pressed their Intention to vote for
Harding and 12 for Cox. The remainder
said they were either undecided or
were not going to the polls.
"I'm not a modern lady," one ex
plained, when asked why she didn't
"There's only one man to vote for
anyhow," another declared, "and that's
"If Cox keeps on talking I don't
think he'll get any votes by Novem
berf" a third woman supplemented.
Waterfront for Hardloc.
A vote taken along the waterfront
yesterday among shipping men, office
clerks, longshoremen and sailors went
heavily in favor of Harding.
Of 62 vote cast 34 were for Hard
ing and . IS for Cox.
The masculine waterfront vote stood
31 tor Harding and 17 for Cox "and
the feminine vote 3 for Harding and
1 for Cox.
The vote was taken in such a man
ner as to secure as much as possible
an expression from representatives of
various trades and occupations along
The representatives of big business
and the representatives of labor both
expressed their opinion. The women
voting were all clerks In offices on
There seemed to be a general sen
timent among the office and shipping
men who voted that Harding should
be the choice of the people in order
that business might be stabilized and
the country brought back to normal.
"We have had enough Wilsonism
and that is what Cox stands for," de
clared one srizxied-haired represen
tative of a steamship office.
' A shipper declared that the country
needs a man wno will bring it back
from the unnatural conditions of war
to normal without causing business
"My father fought in the civil war
and ever since I was of age I have
been votyigr the republican ticket to
help preserve the country for which
he fought," declared one clerk who,
judging from his appearance, must
have been voting some 25 or 30 years.
"I am going to vote it again this
year," he continued.
The vote among the longshoremen,
some seven or eight of whom cast
their ballots, stood about half for
Harding and half for Cox.
With one longshoreman, however
whose accent showed him to have
come from the "auld sod" there was
no question as to who should be the
Son of Erin Emphatic.
"You can put me down for Harding
with a big black mark," he declared.
"If anybody thinks I'd vote for Cox
and a league of nations that would
make England boss the United. States
he is crazy, that's all."
"Harding looks like a good clean
man and Cox looks lile a bartender
or something of that sort, so I am
voting for Harding," was the feminine
reason given by one fair voter.
One voter who declared himself for
Cox said he didn't believe a change
would benefit him any.
"The administration has been pretty
good to me," he said, "so I don't think
there is any use trying to change it."
Another declared that if there was
any chance of getting liquor back he
was strong for that and so he would
vote for Cox.
"It's a cinch that Harding won't do
anything to bring back our liquor
and Cox may, he commented.
Hubby Must lie Shown.
The one woman voting for Cox
chanced to be married, and she de
clared she had to do something to
show her husband she had a mind
of her own.
"He's for Harding, and, of course.
I have to be for Cox," .she said
"Of course, I think Cox is the best
man, anyway," ehe continued.
Senator Harding won an over
whelming victory in the straw vote
taken at the city hall yesterday. Sen
ator Harding got 7 votes from men
employed in the municipal building,
while Governor Cox got 16 from the
men voters. The women employed at
the hail showed almost a solid in
clination toward the republican nom
inee, giving him 30 votes, whereas
but four women voted in favor of
A surprisingly large number of city
employes confessed that they had not
yet .decided for whom they would
vote. Some leaned toward the demo
cratic candidate and others were in
clined to favor Senator Harding, but
they refuced inclusion in a straw
ballot on the ground that they had
not yet decided.
Woman for Dry Candidate.
"I will cast my vote for the man
who proves he is the strongest dry
advocate, said one women employed
in City Treasurer Adams' office,
"Up to the present moment Harding
seems to be the strongest 'dry,' but
I want to be sure before 1 record
The league of nations eeemed to
worry some, one man asserting that
he first favored Cox because of his
stand on the league, but that during
the last few days Cox had switched
on his position so many times that no
one conld really understand wh-ere
the democratic nominee stood.
"I voted for Wilson twice," said
one woman who cast her preferential
vote in favor of Senator Harding,
"but you can mark me down for
Harding now. I am sorely disap
pointed in the democratic administra
tion and I certainly want to see
change back in Washington."
Some Employes Reticent.
Some of the city employes were
reticent in vplclng their sentiments

might be used for some ulterio
motive. One man, after making his
choice, objected against straw votes.

-,-. uuiiinea oy Arrangement.)
WASHINGTON. Sept. 29. The cam
paign has now reached a point where
candor fe a difficult quality, either
to get from others or to achieve in
neself. Feelings have been aroused
nd the voters have cmltn sronprnllv
arrived at the state of emotion or
conviction where they have made up
neir minds now they are going to
Having arrived at the point, it Is a
practically universal rule that there
after a man does not care so much
hear the truth as to hear that
which gives comfort to his wishes.
The number of persons is small who
can distinguish between the facts and
rnat they wish were facts, between
what is likely to happen and what
they wish to happen. The circum-
tances at one and the same time
end to make the task of the seeker
for candor difficult and the purveyor
of it unpopular.
Candor Sometimes Hurt.
For a reporter, candor has always
ainful consequences, arithmetically
bvious if you reflect on it. Candor
sometimes hurts republicans and
ometimea democrats. But candor in
reporter is painful to practice for
reasons closely personal. The very
intimacy that makes the possession
of candid facts and candid Judg
ments possible Implies personal re
lations with leaders and politicians
which raise questions of delicacy in
the recitation of such facts and Judg
ments. Moreover, it is recognized
that party interests can be injured
by candid etatements of conditions.
A party leader may admit to you in
confidence that his party Is going to
ose Isew Tork by 200,000, or that his
party is going to lose the bulk of the
abor vote, but the public setting
down of facts tends to accentuate
the very conditions it describes. Every
politician knows that the party
morale both of workers and voters is
njured by a statement of condition
or predictions of results unfriendly
to the party, locally or nationally.
Reporter's Duty Clear.
All these reasons and more tend
o make candor difficult. You may
be personally fond of a party leader
or a candidate, and if. you are, you
hesitate to do what will injure his
chances. Then, too, there is always
feeling that public interest In the
result would be dampened either
ocally or nationally by a too candid
statement of conditions as they exist
early in the contest when there is
yet time for them to change. Never
theless candor is a duty to the public.
Those of us who are making a busi
ness of knowing these candidates and
the conditions, of knowing the issues
and the relations of the candidates
to those issues, have the opportunity
and it becomes a duty to transmit
these facts and judgments candidly
as they arise.
Any attempt to achieve carefully
balanced impartiality, detail by de
ll, would lead to self-conscious sup
pression and sterile barrenness and
short both of the interest and
candor which readers have a right to
expect. The net result of complete
candor in details is the best kind of
impartiality. It is true that every
judgment is to a degree influenced by
the personal equation. The qualifica
tion quickly becomes apparent to the
reader and he is able to discount it.
Campaign la Different.
In the present campaign probably
the Indisposition to be tolerant of
candor is less general than in most
campaigns, for undoubtedly in this
campaign the public is less "het up'
than in any political campaign for
the last 25 years. In all of the cam
paigns the candidates involved in
cluded one or more of such compell
ing personalities as Roosevelt, Wil
son or Bryan. Haraly anyone Is as
excited over either Cox or Harding
as nearly everyone was over the
more dynamic personalities or the
other three. As a Minneapolis poli
tician expressed it, in writing to me
the other day, "1 haven't heard of
anybody here getting excited and
smashing someone else's nose in a
political argument this year."
"However, in this campaign, such
as it is, we nave reached the month
during which candor is, as a rule.
unpalatable to the reader and costly
to the giver. Candidates, both for
major and minor offices, political
leaders and editors, and ardent party
men generally are all in a state
of emotion where candor is usually
not a highly valued commodity
either for the producer or the con
sumer. Neverthless, as I have said.
those who have the opportunity to ac
quire candid facts and to form can
did judgements have the clear duty
of transmitting them. Your core
spondent hopes to present during the
coming month a statement of condi
tions throughout the country, the
candor and acuracy of which can be
depended upon with confidence.
General Survey Planned.
"I have been in correspondence
with many hundreds of persenns gov
ernors, members of congress, senators
and former holders of these offices,
party leaders, editors, newspaper men,
chairmen and members of state, na
tional and county democratic and re
publican committees and the like. All
this correspondence has been in con
fidence and the circumstances of it,
including in nearly all cases per
sonal acquaintance with writers, in
sure as near an approximation to
candor as can readily be accom
plished. As one of my correspondents
wrote. 'Sure, I can give the right
dope when I am talking honestly to
a friend outside the state.
With this information from all sec
tions of the country In hand, your
'correspondent begins a. personal tour
of survey throughout the country,
in each community checking up by
personal contact the mass of lmor
matlon and judgments already re
ceived. The tour will take in prac
tically all the Important doubtful
states with the possible exception
California, which may turn out to
be impracticable to visit. I am now
with Senator Harding on his tou
which ends in Kentucky. I expect to
join Governor Cox s train in Okla
noma during the latter part of his
tour and then continue through the
important doubtful states of the west
and the middle west.
Iaut to Be Viewed Last.
The survey of the west beyond the
Mississippi will be made after con
ditions have crystallized to the poin
where, presumably, they will remain
until election day. Alter completing
the tour of the west beyond the Miss
issippi I expect to join the Cox and
Harding trains on their trips through
the middle west and into the south,
and will try to estimate conditions
in that region, especially in the two
important -and doubtful states of
Indana and Ohio. The survey of
the big eastern states will be made
during the last week of the campaign.
With the data I already have and
in- the personal survey I hop to pay
quite as much attention to the fight
for control of the senate a to the
political contest Omitting the south,
in the 20 states in which there are
real contests for senator, it is almost
the universal rule that the. senatorial

Other Work Considered.
In addition to the foregoing work
to be advertised for November, the
commission acted on other proposi
tions in the following counties:
Crook county Proposal made to
take. the $40,000 intended for gravel
ing part of the Prineville-Redmond
road and apply it witn $40,000 of
county money on improving 20 miles
from Prineville to too forestry boun
dary on the Ochoco river. This will
connect with the road through the
forest and to Mitchell and will give
about 42 miles of good road. This
was taken under advisement by the
Deschutes county Commission in
tends graveling from Bend to Horse
Ridge. 17 miles, next year, if possible.
The grade has been made and the
commission says it must be protected
by gravel or rock surface. This is on
the Central Oregon highway. The
county has $20,000 to apply on a road
fiom Redmond to Sisters and $25,000
for the road from Bend to Sisters.
The commission gave assurance that
something will be done next year.

Tillamook and Lincoln counties.

project for road from Neskowin, Til

ty. The counties must build the road
up to the forest reserve, which lies
between the two towns. Most of the
road is within the reserve and a
harp ridge runs through the forest.
When this link from Neskowin to
Otis is completed it will be possible
to drive an automobile from Astoria
down the coast to Florence, Lane
Wallowa county. Contracts will be
called for at February meeting for
grading and rocking 32 miles of the

mission decided to locate the highway

quested' to do the grading. This loca
tion eliminates a blind corner.
Road May Be Widened.
The delegation from Jackson coun
ty induced the commission to increase
the width of the Crater lake road
from 12 to 16 feet from Trail to
Agate. The county court, in addition
to the co-operation of 23 per cent of
the cost, offered $500 a mile if the
extra four feet were added. The com
mission consented when Judge Gel

that Jackson county has expended.
out of its own pocket, $245, 2S7 to
make the Crater lake road available
to the public since 1908.
Klamath and Wallowa counties each
have a large sum on hand from sale
of their road bonds. The Interest is
being paid on the bonds, so the county
courts appealed to the commission to
start work so the money can be put
to use. As nothing can be done
w allowa before April, tne commis
sion agreed to bite off a big chunk
and will put 32 miles of road under
contract in February. The Klamath
county situation was somewhat sim
ilar. The commission explained that
t was getting short of funds, but
would willingly spend the county's
money, with the understanding that
the state would co-operate when I
funds are available. On this basis
another section of The Dalles-California
highway will be contracted in
November. Also at the November
meeting the commission will contract
for 18 miles of the Ashland-Klamath
Falls highway in Klamath county,
and about three miles in Jackson
county, all as one job.
One Contract for Paving,
Of the contracts awarded at yester
day's meeting, only one was for pav
ing. This was the job from Multno
mah county line to Oregon City
bridge, through Oswego. It was
awarded to the Scandia Shipbuilding
company for $220,712, and will be a
