The 51 Uvestifations of Wilson
. " Nothing.
(By David-F. gt Clair.)
Washington,; May 18. The Re
. publican are claiming the Coolldge
primary victories in Indiana and es
pecially in California within the last
week Justify the betting on Wall
Street 8 to 6 in favor of Cooliditefs
election as against any candidate the
Democrats mar name. They inter
pret hte primary vote as indicating
. that the .American people have defi-
, ' nitely made up their - minds whom
. thev-want for President.
' The Democratic' Managers on the
other hand point out tiiat only a com
paratively small fractioh of the votes
cast for Harding in 1920 was cast
for Goolidge in the Illinois, Indiana,
Ohio and California primaries and
that the interest that was manifested
for him was worked up because : of
the determination of the Old Guard
and progressives also to administer a
knockout blow to Hiram Johnson who
is- considered neither flesh nor fowl
in the Republican party today. The
'. Old Guard desired to smash Johnson
for iear he might , smaso. the party
and the progressives wanted to elim
inate him' because they regarded him
as a deserter.
The Democratic managers in con
tending, that the Coolidge candidacy
is being made to appear in a more
favorable light than it is really en
titled, to because of the unpopularity
of his only rival, do however, admit
that,, the Republicans knowing who
their candidate is to be with the whole
Federal administration at his back
in advance of, the convention, that
important fact, other things being
, equal, would give their candidate the
. start In the race. - 1 ,
At. Democratic headquarters- it is
argued that the electorate as a jury
haa hot all the evidence in the1 ease to
m reach? any sort of an intelligent and
justv-verdict. Not only is the Demo
cratic candidate unknown but the
American people appear to be still in
ignorance of what the, Harding-Cool-idge
administration really means to
This latter fact has caused Demo-
crate some anxiety Without doubt
Republican leaden and press have
succeeded in making a large element
of the country believe that the con
gressional investigations v that - have
uncovered such a saturnaua -ef or
iakr. iTtiTlttni8ode of -touts battler
ttIUUU All bug )rDWIv n
moral simiflcancet The Republicans
were greatly aided in producing this
public impression by the unfortunate
connection of, the. name of the fore
most Democratic candidate with one
of the investigaljpns. ';
Many people are saying there Ib no
moral distinction ' between the two
Earties. Senator Glass of Virginia
as pointed out in this connection that
with, the going out of the Wilson ad
ministration,' the Republicans held
fifty-one investigations of the Demo
cratic party end failed to disclose- or
find'a dlshnest;dollar and that too
after, the Democrats had conducted
one of the greatest of all wars.
