ni;ton, Oct. 1. Hurtling is gradually
Tunning away from Cox in the Cin
cinnati Kn'inirer poll of southwestern
Ohio. lp to Wednesday a total of
M51 voters had been polled, of whom
at least half reside in rural sections
outside of Cincinnati and Hamilton
county. While Harding led In Ham

centage of his margrin over Cox is

Cox an exceedingly close race in
some strongly democratic communi
ties. The last figures jdve Harding 4S57
and Cox 3594. Republicans who will
vote the democratic national ticket
this year number 265, and democrats
who will ro to the republican ticket
number S04. The women's vote in
the same poll shows 213 for Harding
and 161 for Cox.
' Even money is now bet In New
Tork-that Harding will carry Ohio by
40,000 and odds of 8 to 6 that he will
carry the state.
Odds on Harding; Gain.
"At the same time, even money Is
offered In New York that Harding
will carry that state by 200.000 and
the odds on the outcome of the presi
dential contest have shifted from 4 to
1 on Harding: to 5 to 1. The repub

ceptible that odds are now offered on
Judge Nathan L. Miller, republican,
who nominated Herbert Hoover at the
Chicago convention, being elected
governor. Odds on Miller are 8 to 1.
Indiana, which was classed as
doubtful for several weeks, appar

There is no public respect for either

But what Is more Interesting in the
World editorial, . incidentally, is the
startling admission on the part of
this Cox newspaper that the demo
cratic nominee was put over by cer
tain big bosses. The World says:
. "Governor Cox had a much stronger
claim on the democratic nomination
than Senator Harding had on the re
publican nomination. His record as
governor of Ohio gave him a status
of his own in the San Francisco con

him was the determination of a lit

CONDEMNATION" OF MARKET
COMMISSION ACT CRITICISED.
Jared Wenger Says Proposed Meas-

j : I'artisan League Out.
Criticism of the action recently
taken by the board of directors of the
Oregon State Betail Merchants' asso
ciation in passing resolutions con
demning the state market commission
act is voiced by Jared Wenger, secretary-manager
of the Greater Port
land association, in a letter sent yes
terday to the retail merchants of the
Mate. Mr. Wenger is also secretary
of the Oregon Itetail Furniture Deal
ers' association and assistant secre
tary of the Oregon Ketail Clothiers'
"The. stand the writer takes In the
-matter." wrote Mr. Wenger, "is that
If by creating a state market director
will provide the farmens with a capa
ble leader who will place them on a
better business basis, as has been done
In California, It will be far cheaper
for the state to bear the expense than
for the merchants to face ruin. Fur
tiler, does it not appear logical that a
state director at this time would do
much to keep the non-partisan league
out of Oregon, for it should be re
membered that California, h im a ntare
market director; that the league has
not entered that state, nor is it likely
to, for the reason the farmers of Cal
ifornia are already organized in their
own co-operative marketing ex
"The Portland campaign to combat
non-partisan leagueism is being con
ducted in the interest of the entire
Mate and as this matter has been be
fore us since the early part of this
year and the non-partisan league gen
erally known for the past five years
and also what co-operative marketin
rias done for commercialism in Cali
fornia, it seems strange that a secre
tary of a merchants' body, unless he
,was ignorant of the facts, should per
mit his board of directors, without
first pointing out the dangers, to as
fume the responsibility of condemn
ing the state market commission act,
'the primary object of which was to
keep the non-partisan league out of
Oregon. It is further strange that
any board of directors of any body
should so misuse its power, which is
inferred by the wording of the reso
lution, to speak for the entire organ
ization without first obtaining an ex
pression from the body."
