Iowa Senator's Position Is
-None Too Secure.
Opposition of Brotherhoods and
Labor Kleincnts Grows; Farmers
Llkcvle Are Disatfeclcd.
(Cor r.gHt ty the New Tork Bventns Post,
inc. Published by Amnlmenl.)
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
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
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.

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.

most extreme western point at St.

and Illinois on October 12 and 13.
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
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.

trol and ultimately eradicate disease.

tion of illicit traffic in arms, in dan

was fully dwelt upon in the senate
debates, and President Wilson him

the members of the senate that there

than a legal one.
In this statement the presidenjt ig
nores the moral obligation involved

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.
