Back on Wall Street, Sure to
Follow Election of Senator.
By Carl Smith
Washington. Oct. 30. (WASH
NAL.) The campaign Is winding
up with the usual maze of clalma
and prognostications put forth by
rival managers. These guesses do
not fool many people because they
are manifestly padded.
At this time they revolve principally
around Ohio and Indiana, because with
them, the border states, the South and
the uncertain Western states. Cox can
win without New York. The situation
as to Ohio and Indiana seems to be that
the Democrats are afraid they will not
carry them, and the Republicans are
afraid they will.
On all sides there Is agreement that
Cox has made a wonderful campaign
after a late start and with campaign
funds massed against him. The Hard
ing people have had money for any en
terprise that suited their fancy, while
the Democrats had not enough for the
most ordinary expenses of organization
and publicity. Governor Cox has over
come much of this handicap by his per
sonal appeal and Individual energy. It
Is conceded that he has made votes
wherever he has gone.
If the progressive West so much de
sires a change that It votes for a reac
tionary candidate It will get that kind
of a change. Then .the country will be
in for four years of bickering and dis
sension with the Republicans split two
ways on the league and two ways again
on reaction. This approaching feud
within the , party, temporarily held In
check during the campaign, is causing
Republican leaders much uneasiness.
' They see no dayUght beyond.
Governor Cox. In his notable speech at
Indianapolis Thursday night, pictured
some of the consequences of a Harding
victory and stated the case for the Pro
gressives of the country.
With' Harding elected. Johnson and
B.rabfi win have president who has
scrapped the League of Nations.
Taft and Root will have a president
who only wants to fix up the league a
The farmers will have a president who
opposed the farm loan act and de
nounced them for avarice.
Labor will have a president who voted
for a rigid anti-strike clause in the
railroad bill.
Penrose will have a president- who
agrees with his kind of a tariff bill.
Pro-Germans will have a president to
promote a separate peace with Germany.
Popular government advocates will
have a president who dislikes primaries,
and likens the Initiative to a revolution.
Profiteers will have a president who
was "not much in favor of any part" of
the food control bill.
Soldiers of the late war will have a
president who was actively fighting land
settlement legislation one year ago.
Sympathizers with Irish freedom will
have a president who promises In ad
vance that he will have no official con
cern for Ireland.
Commerlcal Interests will have a presi
dent who voted against establishing the
shipping board.
The big packers will have a president
opposed to the "paralysing arm" of fed
eral control.
The Wall street financial group will
have a president surrounded by the men
who opposed the federal reserve act.
Prohibitionists will have a president
self-declared against prohibition, who
voted to extend the saloon to the Philip
pines. The composite of all this Is what the
country at large will have If the
progressive West gives consent.

for president; ex-Senator Albert J. Bev-

Mr. Joslyn announces that he Is for ;
Cox in the present campaign because j
the League of Nations is an issue that
transcends "all questions of domestic 1
policy and all controversies of partisan
advantage." because this Is a work which
will endure for generations.

says the author of the best Republican
platform. "It is the one great hope for
the future peace of the world. Gov

Nw York World.)
New Tork, Oct. 30. So pro
nounced has been the shift in politi
cal conditions throughout the coun
try that Democrats are encouraged
to believe the trend away from !
Harding may assume proportions by I
Tuesday to accomplish his defeat.
The betting, straw votes and ex- I
pert Judgment, however, point to
his election.
The Republican managers produce
figures to indicate a minimum of 290
votes for him or 24 more than necessary,
but these figures are those of three
weeks ago, before the "breaks" began
to go against the Republican party and
to mark the turn of popular opinion
toward Cox and Roosevelt. Blundering
by the Republican management at a
stage when It seemed they could not
lose and a surprising recrudescence of
popular interest and approval of the
league of Nations, are the two funda
mental causes for Improved Democratic
The turn to Cox came with the Dee
Moines speech of Senator Harding. The
discomfiture of Harding was aggravated
by the success that attended the efforts
of President Wilson and Governor Cox
to arouse the "moral conscience" of the
country to the support of the League
of Nations, plus splendid teamwork of
party organizations.
The Democratic managers declare that
the movement away from the Hardlng
Coolidge ticket has assumed the propor
tions of a crusade. The Republican
managers, while admitting that which

Washington, Oct. 3C (WASH
NAL.) From Brussels comes strik
ing news. The council of the League
of Nations has approved the Root
plan for an court un
der the league except thi pi o vision
for compulsory arbitration of ques
tions of legal right.
The compulsory provision was laid
aside for further examination because It
goes further than the league covenant,
under which both parties to a dispute
must consent to arbitrate before it can
be submitted.
Thus from the league council at first
hand comes affirmative ruling that the
league Is founded upon freedom of ac
tion by its members and refutation of
any claim that it forms a super state.
Root himself has admitted that his
court plan takes a step ahead of
covenant and,-urges its adoption by the
league assembly next month. The Brus
sels dispatch reveals that the league
council will not recommend it to the
assembly because the council doubts the
wisdom of going beyond the league
Root thus appears in the peculiar po
sition of opposing one part of the league
covenant. Article X, on the ground that
the obligation goes too far, then pro
posing an amendment to another part
which the league council opposed be
cause his plan goes too far in binding
nations to compulsory action.
If further confirmation of the league
council's views were needed, it is sup
plied by another dispatch quoting Italy's
representative, Temasso Tittonl, as say
ing that he hopes coercive powers wlir
yet be granted to the league.
The makers of the covenant at Paris
did not go that far, preferring to rely
upon good faith and voluntary action.
The strange part is that politicians
represent the present league as a super
government which would prevent free
dom of action by this country.
Under the league covenant, as brought
back by President Wilson with the ap
proval of Taft, there Is no provision for
compulsory settlement of disputes. There
are provisions against going to Avar until
investigation has been made by the
league and reports submitted. Root and
his associates agreed unanimously that
the world court should include a com
pulsory clause.
Those who oppose the league on the
ground that it limits the sovereignty of
the United States, by which Is meant
that the "right" of a nation to go to war
without warning and for any reason is
denied, will no ooubt have a new shower
of anathemas for Root, who actually pro
poses to force the United States along
with an other nations, of course to
submit disputes Involving the interpre
tation of treaties, for example, to a world
court composed principally of "foreign
ers." A dispute with Japan over Immigra
tion, involving alleged violation of the
gentlemen s agreement" would be
question of that character. The violation
of Belgian neutrality by Germany was
In violation of a treaty. " Commercial
relations between nattooa generally are
governed by treaty, and a large number
of political question, including boun
daries, stand on the same looting.
Senator Johnson in New York the
other day was asked how he would
square the attitude of Root with the
attitude ef Senator Harding.
"Tou will have to square it yourself."

The lower price of butter is due to

Reports indicate some creameries are

themselves against paying a high price
for storage butter, by seeing that the
