The action of the Democratic State
Central committee in electing Jerome J.
Day. of Moscow, state chairman to suc

political circles as a direct elap at the
Non-partisan League, which is seeking
to elect its candidates on the Demo
cratic ticket. Apparently, while the
Democratic party lost practically all of
its state nominees to the league. It is
still in control of the party machinery.
League leaders admit that the selec
tion of Chairman Day Is not particular
ly to their liking. It is well known in
political circles that both Harry L. Day
and Chairman Day are opposed to
the league and its programme. Prior to
the primaries Mr. Day was outspoken
in his opposition to H. F. Samuels, the
league candidate for Governor, who
was successful at the primary in de
feating K. A. Van Sicklin and Frank
Martin, regular Democrats. The back

on the Non-Partisan League, indicating
the fight on that organisation is going
to be a boated one before the campaign
closes. The ire of Mr. Gooding was
aroused by the appearance In his home
