Thompson's .victory was won tn spite
f 4he opposition of powerful Repub

He was also fought all the way by the
Ixtwdenltes .followers of ' Governor
Krartk O, Lowden. r Thompson and Low
den, once friends, had a split over party
affairs and at the Republican national
convention Thompson, a delegate, re
signing, denounced Lowden for "at
tempting to buy the presidency." Be

party and the powerful personality of
. its candidate for governor, former Sen
ator J. Hamilton Lewis.
The story Is told of a precinct oap

mayor by telephone. '

a joint Republican-Non-partisan league
ticket, although he made a campaign
pledge that he "would help the Re
publicans organize tha senate."
Ladd's attitude at the Republican
senatorial caucus at which this organi
sation will be effected will be awaited
with interest by Republican leaders who
have not forgotten the fight Senator
Borah of Idaho waged against Senator'
Penrose of Pennsylvania, and others of
the Republican "old guard" when ; the
present Republican senate majority was
organized two years ago.

. Borah is expected to renew his 'fight
when the new senate is organised, al
though Senator Penrose's friends re
gard his inability to take an active part
In that body, in view of his ill-health,
as a not remote policy of the senatorial
situation. In case of Penrose's enforced
absence, tha brunt of the "old guard"
leadership' probably will fall on Wat
son of Indiana, and Smoot of Utah.

him will be no more akin to the per
formances of Roosevelt or Wilson than

portrayal In "Justice,"
