Prosperity Is Expected to
Keep People in Line.
PARTY TAKES OFFENSIVE
Campaign Will Bo Carried Into
Democratic Territory on
BY ROBERT T. SMALL.
(Copyright. 1922. by The Oregonian.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept 30.
As the congressional campaigns ara
' beginning to make headway in the
various states, the republican man
agers here in Washington are as
turning a confidence which a few
weeks ago would have been incre
dible. It is not that they have found any
new merit in the record of the con
gress Just closed nor that they are
unconscious Of the blight that a
tariff bill generally leaves upon a
party la power.
The republicans believe they are
going to achieve victory this fall be
cause of the prosperity which is
sleeping the country.
"Give us good times and to hell
with the record of congress," de
clared a vigorous and virulent leader
of the republican inner councils to
the writer a few weeks ago.
Good Times Held Here.
Today the republicans believe the
good times are here and they feel
that the rest is easy sailing. Not
that the cold winds of defeat are not
expected to blow and to blow hard
In a good many localities, but by and
large the old chiefs of the Grand Old
Party are rather inclined to inform
the universe that they are "settin'
pretty" at the moment.
It is no secret that John T. Adams,
national chairman, and a lot of other
republican leaders six months ago
were much worried over the outlook
for the coming election. Nothing
seemed to be breaking right for the
party. Congress was in a jam, re
ports from the country Indicated
that the administration was losing
ground, the Washington arms con
ference had been a seven days' won
der, but apparently had left no per
manent impression upon the people,
ao far as political considerations
wdre concerned, and a lot of so
called "progressives" were threaten
ing to run away with all the party
Prosperity Sole Hope.
Chairman Adams, of a remarkably
equable disposition, found solace in
the conclusions which were reached
at not only one but many confer
ences. "If business conditions are good
'm the fall, we will sweep the coun
try," said the leaders, "if business
londitions continue bad we will lose
fhut is all there is to it, tariff or
o tariff, foreign policy or no for
eign policy, congress or no con
gress." This is the philosophy of the re
publican chieftains and it is the ex
planation of the optimism which has
taken hold of them during the last
They have seen unemployment
virtually wiped out. They have seen
hundreds of thousands of men on
strike return to work. The condi
tions of the return may not have
been in all cases all that was ex
pected., but the men are back never
theless, and producing. The busi
ness revival from one end of the
country to the othw seems limited
at the moment only by the somewhat
crippled facilities of the railroads to
handle the flow of commerce.
Fall Dinner rail Slogan.
Word has gone forth from head
quarters here that "the full dinner
pail" shall once again be the slogan
of the republican speakers.
Faced a short time ago with a
purely defensive campaign, the re
publicans feel now that trade' fig
ures and business reports from every
section of the country give them a
positive platform upon which to
build for the ballot of November 7.
With becoming modesty the repub
licans will declare that returned
prosperity is entirely due to the
wise policies of republicanism and
the confidence of the people in re
The democrats will reply that
prosperity has come back to the
country despite the republican party
and not because of it. They will say
there has been a breakdown of gov
ernment; that congress was never at
such a low ebb as it has been during
the past four years of republican
control. The democrats will say
they are Justified in this latter con
clusion by quoting explicit state
ments to the same effect made by
the secretary of war, John W.
Weeks, one of the most stalwart of
all stalwart grand old party men.
Charters to Be Iicnorrd.
The republicans have decided to
Ignore all such things and preach
prosperity from beginning to end.
Lest some of the democrats get too
obstreperous about the "iniquitous"
tariff, however, the republican cam
paign managers have prepared a
little booklet which gives the tariff
records of the democrats who voted
with the republicans on certain of
the tariff schedules. The democrats
already have been alleging that the
Fordney-McCumber tariff act is a
political rather than an economic
tariff. The republican book count
ers with this charge:
"Democratic members of congress
themselves furnish the best proof
of the fallacy and inconsistency of
the democratic party's position on
the tariff. Their party may seek to
make political capital out of the
issue, but individually they seldom
fail to seek the needed protection
for the industries of their respective
Demorrallc Vote Cited.
The republicans allege that 3S.8
per cent of the democrats in the sen
ate voted for amendments to in
crease the rates of duty in the Ford
ney bill, while 47 per cent voted
against amendments which would
have lowered the rates of duty.
They not only give this telltale per
centage, but they list fhe democrats
who did it.
Taken altogether it's going to be
a right merry campaign after all.
OX TEAM HARD TO FIND

CHICAGO, Sept. 30. "Times do

WINE, BEER PROPOSED
Supreme Court Allows on Ballot
Amendment Providing for
2.75 Per Cent Alcohol.
' BY NAIN GRUTE,
(Copyright, 1922. by The Oregonlan.)
CINCINNATI, O., Sept. 30. (Spe
cial.) The decision of the state su
preme court, under which, at the
November election, ' voters of Ohio
will be the first Americans to pass
directly upon the question of mild
beer and light wine, has given zest
to a political campagn which with
only perfunctory contests in pros
pect had begun to languish before
it even got under way.
The approaching referendum on
whether the state constitution, not
withstanding the federal limitation
of one-half of one per cent, shall
be amended to recognise as intoxi
cating wine and beer only when its
alcoholic content exceeds 2.75 per
cent, and further to protect citizens
from search and seizure without
legal warrant, is the talk of the
Discussion Is Widespread.
The merits of the case are begin
ning to be discussed wherever men
and women meet, in the business
houses, clubs and tea rooms of the
cities and around the cracker bar
rels in the crossroads "stores. Al
ready the proposed modification of
prohibition has attracted more at
tention from the voters than did
the 18th amendment to the federal
constitution when it was presented
to the state legislature for ratifica
tion or rejection, and politicians are
predicting that before the last
speech has been made on the hust
ings and the final campaign sky
rocket shot into the air the issue
will have attained such prominence
that the races for office will at
tract public attention only insofar
as the candidates are affected by
the way they line up on the ques
tion of wine and beer.
With the referendum made a cer
tainty by the action of the courts
Thursday, both wets and drys are
preparing for a struggle which will
engulf all other considerations be
fore the voters and determine
whether Ohio, of all the states in the
Union, shall be the first to repudiate
or indorse the spirit of drastic in
terpretation and enforcement of the
national prohibition law.
Drys Have Advantage.
It is conceded on all sides, even
by the wets, that the drys, due to
the intensive objection of the Anti
Saloon league, will have the ad
vantage of appealing to the electors
at the start at any rate. That the
leaders of the wets are awake to
the situation is evident from the
preparations made by the associa
tion against the prohibition amend
ment, the organization through
whose efforts the monster petition,
containing 240,000 names, was pre
pared which resulted in the referen
dum proposal being placed upon the
The day after the decision of the
Ohio supreme court ordering the
referendum a leader of the associa
tion, C. C. Hinckley, left Washing
ton to assume active charge of the
campaign for the amendment and
also to tour Indiana and Michigan
to organize for a -similar campaign
in those states.
Decision Blow to Drys.
The supreme court decision was a
defeat which the Anti-Saloon league
felt keenly and which was all the
more poignant because so unex
pected. Contrary to expectation,
Harvey C. Smith, secretary of state
of Ohio, who had long been under
the ban of the Anti-Saloon league
as too lenient toward the wets, re
fused to authorize the referendum
when the petition for the proposed
amendment was presented to him,
taking the ground that such a ref
erendum would be illegal because in
conflict with federal law.
In ruling the amendment out
Secretary Smith pulled the props
from under a writ of prohibition
which the Anti-Saloon league was
preparing to seek in the courts to
prevent him from placing the
amendment on the ballot.
The wet forces, led By Frederick
W. Marcolin of Cleveland, who
headed the petition for a referen
dum, immediately applied to the
state supreme court sitting at Co
lumbus for a writ of mandamus to
require the secretary of state to
order the referendum.

fought by the Anti-Saloon league,
whose leaders, including State Su
perintendent White, were permitted
to appear as friends of the court to
argue against it. In its decision,
which was handed down by a. vote
of five to two, the court held that
the secretary of state had no power
to withhold a proposed constitu
tional amendment from the suffrage
of the people when a petition in
proper form and with the required
number of signatures was filed with
him. The court took the view that
it was not within the province of
the secretary of state to pass upon
the constitutionality of the proposed
amendment nor upon a possible con
flict with the federal constitution or
George S. Hawke of Cincinnati, a
dry leader, acting in behalf of the
Anti-Saloon league, appealed to the
state supreme court, but met with
no better success there, the higher
court upholding the lower, which
had ruled that for an inferior court
to iBSue an order contrary to one
made by a superior court would be

- Arguments Are Prepared.
Under the Ohio law when a pro
posed constitutional amendment is
referred to the ' electors, the secre
tary of state shall see to it that
the voters are informed of the ar
guments on each side of the ques
tion. Consequently Secretary Smith
is appointing committees of wets
and drys to prepare the arguments
and will send them broadcast to the
voters in pamphlet form.
While the Anti-Saloon league de
clared at one time that the refer
endum was a serious assault upon
national prohibition and at another
that it could be nothing more than
a "straw vote," inasmuch as the
proposed modifications in any event
would be ineffectual, wet leaders
declare that the amendment. If car
ried, will have much more than a
moral effect, because it will require
modification of the state prohibi
tion enforcement laws and enable
the federal government to assume
the entire burden of making pro
hibition laws effective in this state.

Intent to Show Imperial Soli

LONDON. Sept. 30. (Special Ca
ble.) British labor unions are now
more powerful than parliament,
says the president of a famous
English college, and can stop or
prevent a war. He added an aca
aemic "Alas!" being, ant;-labor.
Unionists themselves are not so
sure, but their party, which is busy
preparing for the victory, confi
dently expected at the polls a year
or two hence, did, and Is exploiting
to the full the situation consequent
upon the mess in the near east.
The first response to the war
like pronouncement of the cabinet
was that of labor and it was: "Not
a man, not a ship, not a gun."
Leaders were organizing "stop-the-war"
meetings before the ink
had dried on headlines announcing
the new crisis.-
Nobody thought the war sugges
tion would be received enthusias
tically, but the intensity of the op
position must have been a disagree
able surprise for Lloyd-George and
his cabinet. The crisis, said a pro
government paper, is not in the near
east, but at home.
War Move Failure.
The cabinet deliberately beat the
war drum so that a tableau of Im
perial solidarity might be shown
those who needed reminding; it Is
the reverse that Kemal and Lenine
and Poincare see displayed for
The labor party, which has al
ready named 400 candidates for the

cided to stop it anyway for the ef

Trade Pact Importait
War talk has crowded from the
news the trade agreement between
the soviet government and the
Russo-Asiatic Consolidated com
pany, one of the biggest industrial
organizations in the world, which
bow controls practically the whole
of Russia's non-ferrous metal indus
try, nearly 70 per cent of her cop
per production, all of her sine and
lead output and more than 20 per
cent of her gold production, not to
mention millions of acres of land,
railways, factories and coal mines.
But developments are being nar
rowly watched by Englishmen who
were in Russia before the revolu
tion. Applications for Jobs from
some thousands of them have al
ready been received at the Russo
Asiatic offices in London, and places
will be found for many of them.
Leslie Urqurhart, head of the or
ganization, is very optimistic In
an article published by the Observer
he declared that while practically
all of the other British enterprises
la Russia are at the end of their
tether, an advance of no more than
