This is the eleventh of a series of a?*
! tides by Carter Field on the politisai
i outlook in the various stater.
By Carter Field
ST. LOUIS, Feb. 1.?The thirty-sis
; votes of Missouri at the Republican
National Convention, which were "abso?
lutely sewed up" for Leonard Wood ir
December, will probably be divided be
? tween Senator Harding, of Ohio, ane
' Governor Lowden of Illinois on the first
ballot. Harding', according to the bes:
information obtainable here, will havr
a big majority of the delegation, but
Lowden will have a few, unless tht
member.- should cast their ballots as e
urit, in which case the entire thirty
six will vote for Harding on the first
There is no room for doubt about th?
situation here. The Republican leaders
who will be in complete control of the
state convention and the delegation
this not being a primary state, make n<
bones about the fact that there ha:
been a switch, nor about why the swltcl
It happened when John T. King re

Needless to say, the Wood people
are doing their utmost to get Foriste!
back in line, but the fact that he au?
thorized the Tribune correspondent to
quote him gives little hope for any suc
| cess in that direction.
Incidentally, Forlstel holds the key
to the Missouri situation. This is ad?
mitted by every one here, Democrats
and Republicans alike. The situation
? is that the St Louis Republican ma
j chine, admittedly one of the best-oiled
| pieces of mechanism in American poli?
tics, and which usually delivers 25,000
i Republican majority in the city nlone,
I is dominated by four men, or rather
by two paire of men- One pair is made
up of Edward- Foristel and Edmund
] Koeln, the city collector; the other
?pair of Mayor Henry W. Kiel and John
Schmoll. The two sets have opposed j
i each other at times, but recently a com-1
nlete truce was patched up whereby
Foristel and Koeln agreed not to oppose
Mayor Kiel for reelection this year, and
Kiel and Schmoll agreed to give Foils
tel and Koeln a free hand and unlimited
i support on certain other matters, one
of which is the natipnal end, including
I the delegation to the Chicago conven-j
This is not nil, by any means, ror the
i influence of all four reaches our into
? the stale. In Kansas City Walter S. |
! Dickey, millionaire pipe and brick
; manufacturer, candidate of the Repub
I lieans Tor United States Senator in :
; 1916 ae-ainM James A. Reed, is in full ?
: sympathy with the St, Louis Repub j
lieans. He is not committing himself
? publicly against Wood, but he is known :
to have switched. He now thinks the j
i people do not want & soldier candi- I
In-Kansas City, "The Star" is mak- ;
?rig the best fight it can for Genera]
? Wood. "The Star" dominates that :
field, from a newspaper standpoint, pul
: it doe? not always win its politii al
fights, by any mean*. And the big
: Republicans at that' end of the state
I are inclined to play with the powerful
I St Louis crowd, especially when tl eir
.own leaders, such as Dickey, agree]
?with the St. Louis Republicans.
The confidential explanation of the
.Wood people Is that John T, King had
promised places in the Cabinet two or
three times over to line up leaders in
the various states, and the General
1 'imply could not permit <ach traffick
im; to go on. This could be entirely
: true and not disturb the facts just act
forth at all. It would rathor strengthen
their logic. But there is more to ?t
than any mero fear on the part of the
politicians her? thiU they would not
get the ofllcoB. Most, 0f the big Re?
publican leaders in this state are
millionaires. Pew of them want any
?fricos for themselves. Certainly they
want to control the patronage?that is
what a political machine lives on
but they also are human in their
friendships They knew and truste 1
lohn T. King, und they did not. like
if at all to discover that the man who
: brought them on board the Wood ship
Mind been dropped overboard.
Tlio facts ;is here revealed are not
? verj generally understood in Missouri,
although there is a realization ?11 ovor
; 'ho state that the "St.. Louia exowd"
has for some reason lost its interest
in Wood. Every man to whom I
talked in three cities iri this state said
i thai "Wood was slipping" hero.
On the Democratic side all is bitter
dissension. Those who call themselves
, Admihistratlon men have been trying
to read Senator James A. Reed out of
the party, and 3o far Reed's friends
i ave prevented any such action. A
i particularly desperate effort at. the
, sente commit too meeting, at Jefferson
. City, last Thursday failed, despite evi
? lep.ee timt Reed's friends were in the
The situation seems to be that Mis?
souri is not with the President on his
treaty ti^ht at all. These for ratifl
cation without reservations are i'i a
very small minority, and there is a
1 considerable element back of Reed in
his dosiro to "kill the whole business."
In the five leading cities of the state,
a prominent. Democratic politician who
docs not agree with Reed pointed out
to-day, there is only one newspaper In
favor of ratification without reserva?
tions?"The Kansas City Post." Every
other newspaper in those live cities
either wants the treaty with reserva?
tions or else wants it kilted.
In addition, there Is the powerful
influence of Senator Reed, who is
enormously strong in the state, despite
his opposing the President on this
question, so close to Mr. Wilson's heart.
Then there iir" those friends of former
Spenker Champ Clark who have never
[ forgiven Mr. Wilson, And on top of
it all there is the influence of V- illia ;
Jennings Bryan, still potent in Mis
souri, not to m'ention former Governor

porter who still lift:- a strong foil ??. ?
