most foremost subjects of speculation
for politicians at the Capital at this
moment are: What is to be the prob
able course of Senator La Follette in
the campaign, and what is to be the -w
action of Senator Hiram Johnson and
his friends in California regarding
the Coolidge candilacy on the first
Tuesday in November next; and the
other question is if W. G. McAdoo
should be nominated at New York
over Governor AlwSmth, will not the
great body of the Catholics knive the
Senator La Folettn will rphirn
his seat in the senajte this week with
his neaun restored, it is reported.
Republicans are predicting that he
will give no indication of what course
he will pursue till the Republican
platform has bean evolved and pub
lished at; Cleveland, but the senator is
said to have told his friends that he
expects no concessions to his' views
in that platform and that the time
has come for him to part company
with his party now completely dom
inated by the reactionarygelement.
ii ne ooes make the leap out of
his party to the head of a third party
!- win ue uecause oi tne tremendously
encouraging reports, it is asserted, he
is receiving from a dozen North
western and far Western State?. His
followers are figuring out from these
reports that as- the head of a third
party, the Wisconsin senator will cap
ture the electoral votes of the follow
ing States; Calif oiia, 13; Colorado,
, Alliums, so; iowa, ia; Kansas, 10:
Michigan, 15; Minnesota, 12; Mon
tana, 4; North Dakota, s; Oklahoma,
10; South Dakota, 5; arii Wisconsin,
13, a total of 135 votes.
On the. above basis, Mr. La Fol
lette's friends argue that the election
oi president would certainly be
thrown into the house. They take the
view that the house as it now stands
can not constitutionally elect a Presi
dent for the reason that no candidate
could secure a majority of the States
voting as units. There are 23 States
in the house haying Republican 1 ma
jprities; there 20 States with Demo-
cratic majorities, and 6 States with
This view of th hoima'a iov;i;
to chowe a President in the event that -
rouewe is a candidate and ,"
polls' enough votes to throw the elec- '
tion into the house has hatched out
very interesting rumor to the effect
that thff Wisconsin senator will seek
an understanding with the Democrat
to have the same man put on both the
Democratic and third party tickets for
Vice-President. His choice foT hoi
tickets, it is reported.
Thompson, Chairman of the Federal
Trade Commission and a progressive
cmwrai oi me most advanced type.
Being on both tickets the senate
would elect Mr. Thompson Vice-President
and he would automatically be
It is of course notknown that tlim
is any real foundation for such a
rumor but it is well known that a
clear understating of ce-operation
does exist between the Democratic
leaders in the senate and the La Fol-
lette senators and the man who is
said to be most responsible on the
part of the Democrats in reaching
that understanding is Senator Pat
narnson, of Mississippi, who has
been chosen temoorarv chairman f
the Democratic national convention.
The Democrats are grateful to La,
Follette and his senatorial adherents
for aiding them in bringing about the
investigations that have uncovered the
saturnalia of Republican corrpution
and the public need not be surprised
if remarkable developments should re-
suit irom that co-operation:
wnat Hiram Johnson may do la
giving the Coolidge managers some
concern. It is not believed he wIB
offer open opposition io the election'
of the resident for that would be to
invite political annihilation for him
self, it is contended. Nor is It flt
that after all the California senator
saia in condemnation of Mr. Coolidge
and the Old Guard, that he can come
out and bury the hatchet His ene
mies say he is to selfish a politician
to do that, and his friends aay he is
too proud and strong a man to stulti
fy himself thus. , He and his adher
ents in California are likely to do
nothing and the Coolidge managers
rear tnat is more dangerous than
open opposition. .
The two antagonistic elements in
the Democratic convention will be the
forces of McAdoo and the forces ot
Smith. Mr. McAdoo ' has secured
very nearly a majority of the dele
gates, me jsm KJux Klan la friendly
to him and most unfriendly to Smith.
Already it is heard that McAdoo is
the Protestant candidate - and Smith
the Catholio candidate. This feeling
la being intensified by certain sections
of the Protestant and Catholic . reli-
gioua press, and Democratic abservere
say this feeling will do more than,
anything else to eliminate both men.
