Necessary to nominate, 493,
Chicago, June 14 Warren O. Item
ing, United States senator from Ohio,
was nominated for the presidency lasl
Saturday by the republican national
convention on the tenth ballot, after a
deadlock which had lasted for nine
ballots and which finally forced out of
the running all the original favorites.
As his running mate, the convention
named Governor Calvin Coolidge of
Massachusetts, upsetting a plan of a
combination of the Harding backers
to nominate for the place Senator Ir
vine L. Lenroot of Wisconsin. Coolidge

The collapse of the forces of Gov
ernor Frank O. Lowden and their

Winner Is Dark Horse.
General Wood loBt heavily, however,
when the Harding drift began, and
Senator Johnson, the third of the trio
of leaders on the early balloting Sat
urday, also went steadily down hill.
Entering the convention four days
ago as a candidate distinctly of tht
"dark horse" class, Senator Harding
got only 64 votes on the first ballot
and on the second- he dropped to 58.
When the convention adjourned Fri
day night at the end of the fourth bal
lot he had 81.
Senator Harding is called a "compromise" candidate yet
he was the original choice of the "Old Guard" and there was no
compromise of factions in selecting the man who nominated Taft;
in 1912 and who presided over the republican convention in 1916.
Harding fought Roosevelt in 1912 and never pretended progres-i
siveness, and his selection is due to the control exercised by the!
senatonar clique that wrecked the peace treaty, and their super
ior political generalship. The convention itself, however, was re
actionaryHoover was booed, and Johnson hissed, and LaFollette
i The candidate is of imposing presence and pleasing person
alty and a campaign orator of ability, but his record of achieve
ment contrasts rather meagerly with that of some of the defeated
aspirants. In fact, it is mediocre, and does not stamp him of
presidential size. He is publisher of a country town newspaper,
ha3 served two terms in the Ohio state senate, was lieutenant-!
governor, nominated but defeated for governor in 1910, and elect
ed United States senator in 1914. His record as senator is not lhut va'-
above the ordinary and failure to win a solid delegation from Ohio
to support his candidacy indicates lack of popularity in his home

have chosen men of force and power, of demonstrated executive
and organizing ability and constructive statesmanship, thev
should pass by a Hoover, a Pershing, a Lowden, a Wood and a
Johnson, and choose as standard-bearer, in the most critical hour
pf the nation's history, a Harding. But that is the Old Guard's
theory of government they will do the governing and the presi
dent will take the orders. Hence the selection of a party hack
lunder obligations for the nomination to carry out the mandate of
the party leaders
The hymn of hate voiced by the senate against Wilson, and
earlier voiced against .Roosevelt, was because both of these ex
ecutives insisted upon being president and gave orders, rather
than took them. Roosevelt avoided a breech, while in office, by
compromise, but Wilson refused compromise hence the senate
leaders want no president they cannot manage. In Harding, they
have their heart's desire.
Wood and Lowden "'the gold-dust twins" proved that money
carries its usual curse, even in politics.
"Bringing Up Father" add Jiggs and Maggie to the Capital
Journal's staff of daily laugh producers. With "Mutt and Jeff"
and "Abe Martin" cooperating, the Capital Journal presents the
best and most expensive comics of the day to its readers, and it
is the only paper in Oregon that combines the three. Perhaps
you naan't noticed it but the Capital Journal is steadily pro
greasing in quality as a newspaper.
Announcement of the formation of a third party is now made
by the "Committee of . Forty-Eight" because the republicans
have "driven out the progressives.!' LaFollette is asked to lead

tney were impressed with their truth.

I'm having trouble with my teeth, the UDDer ones, the ones

years in view; with zeal I plied my trenchant pen, and saved a
stock of iron men enough to see me.through. Now by my" fig
tree and my vine I sit and rest and make no whine of fortune or of
fate; I view the world with failing eyes, but see the good that in
it jies, and keep my smile on straight. And as I gaze I see old men
who failed to save the shining yen in days long left behind ; th'ey
slave away at dreary toil, and long to have six foot of soil in
which to end the grind. There's nothing sadder than the sierht
of some old crippled, weary wight, still toiling for his bread, still
drudging for a meager pay, recalling money thrown away, and
wishing he were dead.
