v for Washington Senate Seat.
Olympia, Wash., Oct. 29. A drift
toward. Cox for president has been
distinctly noticeable in the upper
Soupd country this week. The re
sult of the presidential vote in this
state hinges a great deaL upon the
division of the vote of the Farmer
Laborites. Harding, will get none
of it. Due to his progressive record
as governor of Ohio, Coi is likely
to get a fair share of it, estimates
ranging from 15 to 6' per cent.
