The victories of Senator Lodge in
Massachusetts, Senator Townsend
in Michigan and Senator Poindexter
in Washington, were particularly
gratifying to the administration.

President Harding is' reported to
be particularly pleased, inasmuch
as the administration in these con

the party. Iiepublican leaders who
were saying a month ago that the
party would retain control of the
next house by a "safe majority" are
saying that it will be more than a
safe majority. They still admit that
the democrats will make gains, but
they do not believe, in the light of
reotnt events, that they will be
threatening to republican control of
congress. ' "

J0I2 Eitrrtinment Recalled.
It is generally believed that Port
land will have no difficulty in win
ning the 1924 session of the grand
lodge of Elks. The wonderful suc
cess this city attained in the enter
tainment of the Elks in 1912 is still
the subject of conversation at all
grand lodge meetings.
High officials in the order have
stated that if Portland desires to
entertain the grand lodge delega
tion and visitors in 1924 there is
little doubt that the convention
will come here in July of that year.
ing this safety provision would be r
introduced in council and passed, j
and thus the incident was closed.
