THE MORNING OREO QXIANV TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1920 111 i, SECT IN SENATE CONTESTED Iowa Senator's Position Is -None Too Secure. RAILROAD BILL DISLIKED Opposition of Brotherhoods and Labor Kleincnts Grows; Farmers Llkcvle Are Disatfeclcd. (Cor r.gHt ty the New Tork Bventns Post, inc. Published by Amnlmenl.) Bl' MAKK SUIX.IVAN. COUNCIL, BU'FKS, Oct. -4. Evervbodv hue been Resuming that the campaign n Iowa was going Hlong in the usual U0iel way toward the usual republican majority, but the fact is that Jowa has a sltua t'on that comes as cloe to being sensational as any situation in. any state this year. In the parsimonious distribution that is beins made of Senator Hard ing's personal presence you seek a reason for the speech he is to make on Wednesday in this normally safe republican state. That reason lies in the fact that Senator Cummins is in trouble. Senator Cummins has long been the most honored figure In his stale and has so high a place among the elder statesmen of his party in the nation that It comes . to you as a shock to learn that he needs a. I the assistance, he can get to secure re-election. Pending a more thorough survey of the state later, the superficial ex planation seems to be chiefly the railroad bill which bears Senator Cummins' name as Its senate author and the name of Kepresentati ve Lsch of Wisconsin as its author in the bouse. 9 V.nrh I.osen In Wintomiln. - Because of that authorship Air. Esch has recently been defeated ior renomination in his Wisconsin dis trict and Senator Cummins is now being subjected to a powerful assault here in Iowa. The republicans claim ihat Senator Cummins will win, but admit that his vote will fall fully 50.000 behind Hurdlne and 50.000 is a serious handicap even in a state that is normally so heavily republican ad Iowa. ... . The nucleus of the opposition to Cummins Is the railroad men. who are numercus here because Iowa is a state c' many railroads, but the rail road men are merely the nucleus. The labor element has Joined the railroad men. But these elements alone would not be formidable in a state like Iowa and against so strongly intrenched a figure as Sena tor Cummins. What is formidable is the fact that Iowa has a rapidly spreading radical movement among the farmers. The new railroad rates are just beginning to be felt in Iowa at pre cisely the same moment that prices of grain and other farmers' produce are going down. The Homestead, a radical farm paper of large circula tion, is fighting the republican ticket with such forceful bitterness that it is more or less admitted that, how ever Harding and Cummins may fare, the republican candidate for governor is in serious danger of defeat. Suck Mob Arc Dancerou. The situation is made worse ior Senator Cummins by the fact that he is ill and unable to make a per sonal campaign. His opponent is a Jean person with an acquisitive face suggestive of qualities likely to stick to a.n enterprise until it is success ful. -His name is Claude Porter and he Is-a Wilson appointee as counsel for the federal trade commission at Washington. He is described in terms of the not very usual combination of "a Presbyterian elder and a shrewd politician." The trust in this Iowa case is merely another example of the fact that, however the presidential elec tion may go, the republicans are going to have the hardest kind of a fight to get a safe majority In the senate. When you find so strong a figure as Cummins compelled to fight for his life in a state where he has been governor or senator continuous ly for the last 19 years, a state which, as the late Senator Dolllver ex pressed it, "will go democratic when hell goes Methodist" then you are prepared to consider the possibility at least that the republicans may fail entirely to win control of the senate this year. WILSON TIES COX FAST (Ciwithrued Frem rt Page.) tatlve E. H. Moore was here three days, but during that time, he did not reach the president. Former Senator J. Ham Lewis of Illinois was also here, but the White House doors did not open to him any further than the office doors of Mr. Tumulty. There was consternation everywhere It was recognized that things were going to pot and the Question was what was to be done. The differences of opinion In the. democratic camp still exist'as to the advisability of having President Wil son enter the campaign. It is recog nized that one of the chief reasons for the resentment against the presi dent is the prevalence of the belief that he is too autocratic and in the face of this sentiment the) president calmly announced he would not exe cute the shipping law which congress passed and w hich he had signed. Cox tiets In Bad. Governor Cox in his campaign tour undertook to tell his audiences with emphasis that he. Governor Cox, and not JJreflirfnt Tlllcrtn le running UA also criticised the administration by implication by throwing verbal mis siles in the . direction of two of the president's cabinet officers, Burleson and Palmer. Naturally. none of these things have set well at the White House or with the close friends of the presi dent. The '"solemn referendum," which the president had asked tor was being turned into a grotesque perform ance in which wild charges, failing of substantiation had taken the place r rhetorical appeals to save the Pbreakiner heart of the wnriH These facts point to the belief here, that the president has deefded to make the fight himself. He will not allow the "solemn referendum" to go by default and if defeated, his record will have been made straight. Governor Cox. it is also assumed, Is more interested in securing his own election than -In having the Wilson record preserved, and there is heavi ness of heart in democratic head quarters. On the oilier hand, the republicans are having their own trouble and fears and one of these is the dread of over confidence.

I.easne Talk Aimed at Women. The candidate spent most of today renting. He received a delegation of women, headed by Mrs. Florence Kellcy, general secretary of the Na tional Consumers' league, and Mrs. Maud Wood Park, chairman of the National League of Women Voters. The governor talked to them on phases of the league of nations, par ticularly why women hould be in terested in its adoption. On most of the questions presented by the women, especially child wel fare and the Kenyon cold storage bill. Governor Cox told them he had stood for such reforms for 12 years and that Ohio had laws similar to those they sought nationally. Governor Cox said tonight he had received a telegram from Edward A. Ran, who was arrested at Baltimore when he sought to ask Senator Hard ing a question, saying he wds for the democratic candidate. The text of the message was not made public. I.racne Benefits1 Are Many. The league. Governor Cox said, not only will prevent war which he as serted is its primary purpose, but also will promote progress and will "set up or itself become a clearing house for international justice and social service.". Those who, want to keep on dream ing of 'a new. heaven and a new earth,' can perhaps afford, to stay out of the league," the candidate said, "but those who really want to make their dreams come true and mike this world a fit habitat for the hu man spirit, will want to join the league without delay." The governor detailed the follow ing social service and justice pro gramme, which he asserted member nations of the league will endeavor to carry out: , , Try to . secure and maintain fair and humane conditions of labor for men. women -and children, thns lift ing the standard of living everywhere.. Try to secure Just treatment of the native inhabitants of territories under their control. Try to secure and maintain free dom of communication and of transit and equitable treatment for the com merce of members of the league.

The question of obligation has al ready been discussed at great length. was fully dwelt upon in the senate debates, and President Wilson him self admitted in his conference with the members of the senate that there was a moral obligation Involved which was even greater, perhaps, than a legal one. In this statement the presidenjt ig nores the moral obligation involved and dwells unon the freedom of ac tion that would result to the United States. The 'njection of the president into the election has been anticipated for some time, although it was not known what form it would take. It is not known whether Governor Cox appealed to the president, although the best opinion here is that the pres ident decided upon his course out of dissatisfaction with the disastrous trend the campaign was taking. The president Is said to maintain the idea that his popularity Is unimpaired and that an appeal from him will have .far-reaching effect. I'mnipaljcn Failure Admired. That the campaign so far conducted has been a failure is acknowledged by democrats generally. In the Fri day issues of the New York World and the New York Times of last Fri day morning, simultaneous editorials appeared, indicating that fact. The World editorial was headed "Why the Campaign Lags," and the Times editorial was captioned "The Great .Issue." Both papers demanded that emphasis from thfs time on be placed on the league and that methods of the past, be abandoned. The fact that the campaign has lagged, it is recognized. hiuSt be clearly evident to warrant this stalwart democratic organ to : ac knowledge it, while the Times edi torial was equally significant, . President Wilson was beaten by his party managers at San Francisco who accepted Just so much of his record as was necessary to make It appear he was not clearly repudiated. It then became the task of the can didate to merge the conflicting ele ments of his party and how he has failed, is a matter of record.
