Kcneral verdict is that he is of me
diocre presidential stature. He is a
likely speaker and has a rather at
tractive personality. The democrats
are pleased. The only res It 1 should

extent braced up wavering democrats.
That he made any outrisht converts
may be doubud. Cox put the soft
pedal on the slush fund charges here
and talked progretsivism. his idea

Mate. He also discussed the league

progressive element of Oregon."
reople Tired of W'ilsor.
"The state is undoubtedly Harding's
as matters liiand now. The league of
nations is not much of an issue. Peo
ple generally seem tired of it and
think we are well out of the league.
1-eajfue articles and league discus
sion seem to leave the people cold.
Then, too. Mr. Wilson Is a genuine
burden. The people seem tired of
liini ard the democratic administra
tion." The editor of an Independent dem
ocratic newspaper which has support
ed Wilson for eight years writes:
"Being opposed to the radicals of
the northwest, I personally thought

The editor of an independent pa
"The governor made a poor im
pression by his talk here. He ap
pealed to radical inclinations most
decidedly. To me he waj most dis
appointing." An observer in one of the larger
towns of North Dakota where Gov
ernor Cox spoke writes as follows:
"Mr. Cox was treated courteously.
I think that is the most that can be
said. I a i quite sure that his in
sistence on making a camoaign issue
of the handling or campaign moneys
and the personal manner in which he
has dealt with that subject have im
paired his standing in North Dakota.
As to his inheriting the Roosevelt
strength in the northwest, no such
thing :s po; sible. On the league of
nationu Question 1 think that, with
all other elements equal, the people
of North Dakota would support the
position of Governor Cox rather than
the doubtful and evasive .attitude of
the republican candidate and plat
form, but 1 am inclined to think that
only mild interest is taken in .that
subject by the majority of our people
and that ger.eral fitness of office and
prospect of a sound business admin
istration and the defects which have
been observed in the democratic ad
ministration will be mo 9 greatly
Harding's Chance Bent.
"I think the attitude of this state,
as I have indicated, will be governed
much more by state considerations
thn by any other. As it will be
necessary for voters to vote for one
presidential candidate or another,
my expectation is that the people ot
our state will divide very largely
along the old party lines so far as
the presidency is concerned. That
would mean that Harding would carry
North Dakota by a substantia ma
jority." From one of the larger cities of
"From a vote-getl.ing standpoint,
the public has failed to react simply
because Cox, was unable to perform
an inoculation. The hope of the dem
ocratic leaders in bringing their
nominee to the northwest states to
combat the general apathy which has
marked the campaign to date was
shattered. The voters simply do n.ot
warm up. Cox drew good crowds.
This was natural. But these crowds
wero not enthusiastic. However, it
is safe to predict that Harding
would be greeted by the same gen
eral apathy under the, same condi
tions which Cox confronted.
the governor arrived in the statu
during the heat of one of the hottest
l.rtmary election fights ever staged
here. Voters had no time nor incli

They were facing local issues and
these occupied all of their time and
Fnaltlon Not Made Clear.
"Washington state went to hear Cox
rn the league of nations. He failed to
niake his position clear on this issue.
Cox handled his slush fund charges
in all his talks. This did not seem to
take well, as during the primary cam
paign similar charges had been
handed back and forth between gu
bernatorial 'candidates until the vot
ers became disgusted. Cox walked
blindly into this situation and the
physhological reaction was against
The evidence from Montana Is
nuite generally to the effect that Cox
made a good impression. This Is un
doubtedly because the soil was recep
tive. Montana Is a strongly demo
cratic state. An observer in one of
the larger Montana cities says:
"From all reports 1 can get Mr. Cox
made a" very' strong impression in
this section of the country and a good
many votes by his trip through Mon
tana. He appealed particularly to the
radical and progressive elements in
this state by his speeches."
Another Montana citizen who has
access to the highest resources of po
litical information says:
"The plain truth is that very few
In Montana feel any particular en
thusiasm for either Cox or Harding,
but I am convinced that the local sit
uation is such as to make the election
ot the democratic electors reasonably
One angle of the present campaign
which is a strong factor everywhere
and a determining factor in several
doubtful states is covered by the fol
lowing: "The population of this country, be
ing largely of Irish birth or descent.
Is very unfavorable to Cox's candi
dacy. Previous to the arrival of Cox
the local organ of the labor league
published a number of questions
which Cox was asked to answer. One
of these questions dealt with his po
sition on the league of nations and
Irish independence. This was the
only one of the questions which he
attempted to answer -and it would
have been much better for him anon
his supporters had he evaded It as he
did the -rest. He said that In the
event of his election he would refer
the Irish question to the league of
nations. The result was disastrous."
An editor in one of the important
western cities covered by Cox writes:
"I am a supporter and admirer of
Cox. He made a deep' impression
here, although he was In a community
the general sentiment of which Is
against the league of nations. He did
not dodge the Issue but met . it
squarely. His speech here did not
indicate that he was catering to the
radicals. It was one which would ap
peal to all of the people and no seri
ous exceptions could be taken to It
by big business.
"I am rather of the opinion that he
is not getting much if any of the old
Roosevelt following. I am also of the
opinion that a strong sentiment ex
ists in this sta.te against the league
of nations, especially in the industrial
centers. The republicans are going to
support Harding. lso there will be
a defection of democrats from Cox
lo Harding because of the league of
nations. Cox made a good impression
here but not good enough to 'change
the apparent sentiment. 1 am sup

democratic tickets and I am trying

themselves to -me."

SEATTLE. Wash.. Oct. 3. (Special.)
In view of the public anticipation
of lower prices for commodities
brought about by severacl sensational
price reductions within the last few
days, the retail trade bureau of the
chamber of commerce has canvassed
its membership to ascertain definitely
what the public may expect relative
to local prices, and the conclusion
reached for all lines was that the
public need not expect very radical
changes for .a considerable period of
F. A. Ernst, chairman of the bu
reau, said: "While the view is held
that the period of deflation is in
progress, as it has been for several
months, the process is a slow one,
and in the main, orderly, with high
production costs rendering unlikely a
return to anything approaching the
pre-war lej;el, especially while goods
produced under the old schedule have
not been shipped to western retailers.
"Retailers give this summary: In
piece goods the much-heralded reduc

been made effective in local stores."
COMMUNIST CABAL FOUND
Ku-sian Internationale Tightly
Joined to American Party.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. Evidence
that the communist party of America
is "tightly connected" with the Rus
sian third internationale was dis
closed in a report received last night
by the department of justice on the
examination of Witty Shackman, ex
secretary to Nicholas Lenine, arrested
recently in Chicago.
Search of Shackman's residence,
the 'report said, revealed a bulletin
typewritten in Russian which stated
that since the election of John Reed,
magazine writer and former interna
tional secretary of the communist
labor party, to the executive commit
tee of the third internationale, the
united communist party "is tightly
connected with this organization."
Minutes of a recent conference of
the central executive committee of
the party were contained in the bul

DANVILLE, Va., Oct. 3. (Special.)
Two horses belonging to a Patrick
county orchard company were stung
to death and Mrs. Audrey Rickman
was rendered unconscious Friday
when attacked by a swarm of bees.
The horses, harnessed, overturned a
beehive in their restlessness and
brought out the bees.
Goaded by pain, the team ran
amuck and upset IS more bee stands
with the result that a cloud of many
thousands settled on the beasts which,
becoming entangled in the harness,
fell helpless to the ground.

FOURTH AND WASHINGTON STREETS
OPEN SATURDAY EVENINGS 6 TO 8
BY ANTI -FEELING
Block to Expansion Seen in
U. S. Movement.
ORIENTALS ARE RESTLESS
Nipponese Growing ' Dissatisfied
Over Political and Economic
Conditions in Own Land.
TOKIO, Oct. 3 C3y the Associated
Press.) An inquiry into the situa
tion between Japan and United States
by person- in high position, who fol
low the trend of events in modern
Japan, but who may not be character
ized as official, has evolved the fol
lowing as summarizing the situation
growing out of the proposed Califor
nia anti-Japanese measures. '
First A genuine feeling of appre
hension pervades responsible Jap
anese quarters over the anti-Japanese
movements in the United States be
cause of the fear -that it may lead
to intensified exclusion movements
elsewhere, especially in the British
Second The Japanese contend that
if the Japanese question in California
is left alone it will settle itself, be
cause when the present settlers who
cannot be naturalized either die or
return to Japan only their legal Amer
ican posterity will remain, who, in
the course of generations, will be
Anti-Americas Feeling Grows
Third The Japanese contend that
Americans are confusing the present
negotiations, which are aimed at pro
tecting the acquired rights of the
Japanese now in California, with the
general question of immigration,
which is not involved.
Fourth The Japanese maintain
that the voting of the Calitornia
measure would add fuel to the anti
American feeling created by America
blocking what the Japanese call their
legitimate and necessary expansion in
the far east, especially in China and
Siberia. This sentiment is being
steadily engendered by anti-American
articles in the Japanese newspapers.
Fifth While genuinely alarmed at
the anti-Japanese movements abroad,
the leading Japanese secretly are dis
turbed at the growth of the indi
vidualist movement at home, arising
from the dissatisfaction of the people
over the economic and political con-r
ditions and poverty in large cities;
the discontent of laborers resulting
from the absorption of social ideas
from the west; hostility to capitalism;
lack of suitable opportunities for
personal progress and a tendency to
blame the nation's leaders for in
ability to check what they term
Japan's moral isolation from th,e rest
of the world.
China Is Japan's Hope.
Sixth China remains Japan's great
est hope and her greatest problem.
"Japan must find an outlet and op
portunity for her population, which is
increasing at the rate of 760,000
yearly," said one official.
Seventh To a direct question put
by a correspondent whether war. was
a possibility, the reply of this offi
cial and of leading Japanese civilians
unvaryingly is that war with America
is, of course, an impossibility, that it
was regrettable that an estrangement
in friendly relations was within the
range of possibility. The replies were
unanimous that the Japanese believe
the time has arrived when they must
"speak out frankly in defense of our
interests and say what we want to in
Another person in an Interview
added to this:
"You Americans should remember
that if you have a political situation
at home we also have one in Japan."
Race Prejudice Charged.
The importance that Japan gives to
China is evidenced in a review of
Japanese and American relations
appearing in the Herald of Asia, a
conservative weekly of Japanese
thought. After maintaining that the
California measures are based oil
prejudices born of differences in race,
religion and culture, this journal de
clares that these prejudices and the
resultant attitude towards Asiatics
are not confined to Americans, but
are common to all the white peoples.
The greater contact Americans had
with the Japanese and other Asiatics
only accentuated the points of dif
ference and sharpened the edge of
prejudice and dislike, this organ says.
After declaring that ho possible
compromise on the California ques
tion could appreciably remove the
fundamental causes for what it terms
the misunderstandings between the
two nations, the Herald of Asia de
clares that the danger is increased
and rendered more actual by the ex
tension of anti-Japanese prejudices
in far eastern fields, especially in
China, "where the Americans, with
the willing co-operation of the Brit
ish, miss no opportunity of showing
up the Japanese in the worst possible
light before the Chinese, thus trying
to keep the two Asiatic nations es
tranged.", China Held Mlxeulded.
The newspaper charges that the
Americans think that thus they ad-
