funds for the republicans who had

"could not get a dollar for the re
publican party on Manhattan is
land." Another was told that he
could not get any money out of New
Neither of these combinations of
threat and prediction turned out to
be wholly correct. But in general,
it is undoubtedly true that the class
of business men who in the past
have been relied on for republican
campaign., funds are dissatisfied
with many things the administra
tion has done, and have shown the
measure of that dissatisfaction by
the smallness of their contributions
or their unwillingness to contribute
at all. As an incidental result of the
feeling among business men, repub
lican campaign funds are low. The
amount of money sent into Maine
by the republicans this year was
smaller than in any previous year
that anybody can remember.
Another factor in the industrial
situation is the farmer. The farmer
is unhappy. He has rather more
tangible reason for his unhappiness
than the business man. The prices
which the farmer is getting for
wheat, oats and other commodities
is below what he calculates to be
the cost of producing them. What
ever is the cause of this does not
matter. In politics the bla.me is put
on the party in power. In some
sections of the country, notably
California, the producers of certain
commddities, like fruits, have been
injured by the interruption of train
service, so that the results have
Apart from what harm has been
caused directly by the railroad
strike, there are deep causes for the
troubles of the farmers not only
deep causes, but causes that will
last a considerable time. But these
causes are too large a subject for
discussion here. For the purpose
of the present article it is only nec
essary to say that the republican
campaign managers are just begin
ning to be aware of a beginning
wave of extreme discontent in the
farming districts of the west and
middle west. It is in these sections
that 'he republican vote in Novem
ber will show the greatest falling
off. In the industrial centers of
the east the republicans will do rel
industrial situation that is certain
to affect the republicans adversely,
in one degree or another, every
where. A competent judge of Mass
achusetts politics said the other day
that Senator Lodge would be safely
re-elected. barring one possible
condition. That condition would be
a cold day on November 7. He said
Massachusetts was apprehensive
about its coal supply, and it No
vember 7 should be a frigid day a
voter with a cold furnace and an
empty coal cellar would express his
reaction to the combination of
weather and coal scarcity by voting
against the republicans.
What is true of Massachusetts is
true of the country generally. Just
how severely the scarcity of coal
will be felt on November 7 is a mat
ter of dispute. Those who have
charge of the distribution of coal
pay it is now wholly a case of trans
portation; that if the railroads can
stand up to the increased burden no
severe shortage or apprehension of
shortage, will exist on election day.
Next to these various aspects of
the industrial situation, the most
important factor bearing on the
coming election will be the state of
feeling about President Harding.
Considerable numbers of voters will
want to express their approval or
their disapproval of the head of the
party in power. There would be
more of this kind of voting if the
democrats had some personalty to
contrast with Harding. But the
democrats have no such leader, no
one man of outstanding personality
who is accepted as the responsible
head of the democratic party. By
virtue of lack among the democrats,
the republicans will get a good many
votes on November 7 that they
would otherwise lose. Kven so. a
good deal of the voting will be de
termined by popular feeling about
During all last winter and during
the month of the state primaries in
the spring, up to as late as June 1, it
was the observation of the present
writer as well as of others who fol
lowed these primaries closely, that
the public generally made a dis
tinction between, on the one hand.
President Harding, his cabinet and
bis administration, and, on the other
hand, congress. At that time it
was generally said, and it was un
doubtedly true, that there was a
state of public feeling which ex
pressed itself by saying, as it was
frequently summarized colloquially:
'The president is all right, but the
house and the senate are pretty un
satisfactory." In June and July this stat of
public feeling began to change, and
in August an(j early September It
was convincingly evident that Hard
ing had fallen off in popular favor.
One of the republican spellbinders
who went into Maine to whoop up
republican sentiment for the elec
tion there Setpember 11, said that in
three different places where 'he
spoke the local republican commit
teeman suggested to him that it
might be better not to lay emphasis
on the president and his record in
connection with the strikes, on the
theory that this was a handicap
rather than an advantage to the re
publicans. It is commonly said that this de
cline in popular approval of the
president began about the time of
the strikes, and was caused by what
the president did or failed to d
about them. I suspect a more ac
curate examination would show that
the first jolt to the popular esteem
of the president occurred before the
strikes began, and -was occasioned
by the sensational disclosure of the
selling of liquor on the ships ope
rated by the government. Harding
may not have even known that this
was being done; but his failure to
stop it promptly as soon as it was
exposed, caused widespread criti
cism. In any event, so far as the decline
In Harding's popularity was caused
by his management of the strikes, it
was restored by his veto of the sol
dier's bonus. The same class of per
sons who were critical during the
strike were appeased by the veto of
the bonus. As soon as this veto was
made public it was instantly report
ed back to Washington, through
messages from party leaders,
through newspaper editorials, and
through other avenues, that public
feeling about the president had be
gun to change overnight. It was
said that whereas Harding had been
charged with vacillation and weak
ness for his course in relation to the
strikes, his veto of the bonus bill
had restored an impression of firm
ness and strength.
There remain a number of specific
issues. But it is the unprecedented
anomaly of this year's politics that
of all the issues current, there is
only one, namely, the tariff, on
which the parties are lined up
squarely on opposite sides. On the
soldiers bonus we had a republican
president opposed to it, while it was
advocated and supported by the re
publican leader of the house, the re
publican leader of the senate and a
republican majority in each cham
ber. Also, in each chamber, the
democrats supported the bonus as
generally as the republicans did.
So far, therefore, as the soldiers'
bonus figures in the campaign, it
will be wholly an issue attaching lo
cally to individual senators and rep- ,
In the same way the "wet" and
'dry' issue will be, not one between
the parties, but one between in
dividuals. For example, in Minne
sota, the democratic candidate for
the senate is "dry," while in New
Jersey he is "wet." In Maryland the
republican candidate for the senate
is "wet," while in Ohio he is "dry."
And it is the same with practically
every other issue of the campaign
except the tariff.

TOKIO. Sept. 30. (By the Asso

tiona have confirmed report of the
disappearance of large quantities of
arms in Siberia, according to a
statement today from a most relia
ble authority. One consignment of
32 truckloads is known to have gone

These arms had been placed in the
custody of the Japanese. The Jap
anese officer in charge of them
when they dropped from sight has
been arrested and is facing court
martial. The mystery of the missing war
-nateriat was made public several
days ago by a Tokio newspaper, the
.Kokumin Shimbun, which made the
fiat charge that General Dieterichs,
in command at Vladivostok, was
secretly transferring relinquished
Japanese arms to Chang Tso-Lin, in
furtherance of a pact between- the
two , to combine against forces
friendly to the soviet government of
Moscow. The paper asserted that a
"millitary clique" in Japan was
abetting the plot.
The war office at first denied the
charges, but later a full investiga-i
tion was ordered, coupled with the
statement from the foreign office
that the results of the inquiry would
Oe made public.
