SW0PE IS THE PAST TENSE OF SWIPE
When King Swope. the twenty
rlght-ycar-old discharged soldier, who
hns swept n strongly Democratic dis
trict Into the Republican column for
the first time in -M years, took his seat
In tho house the other day as repre
sentative of the Eighth Kentucky dis
trict, he was the target of all eyes.
The Republlciinx greeted him with
cheers and tho Democrats gazed at him
with unconcealed Interest.
Does his election mean anything
out of the ordinary 7 And If so, what
docs It mean? The politicians of con
gress would like to know.
Anyway, King Swope's election
was certainly out of the ordinary. He
was a struggling j oung lawyer In Dan
ville, who had seen honorable service
overseas anil comes of a well-known
Kentucky family. He was a speaker
at the Lincoln day banquet of the
Kentucky Republicans In Louisville. He
denounced the Leaguo of Nations, de.
daring Amei leans should be ashamed of It. Tho Louisville newspapers made
much of It.
Representative Ilurvey Helm died and tlio Republicans nomlnutcd Swope.
Swope stooil put on his speech and made it tho Issue. He was elected
by 1,700 majority hi u district normally Democratic by H.OOO.

Is the United States senate to havo
u woman member?
Anyway, Ann Martin, ono ot the
prominent suffragists In the country, Is
preparing to run for senator In Xo
vada next year, either as a Republican
or an Independent. Shu ran last year
and was defeated, getting about half as
many votes as the Republican candi
date, and spending only S15.000, com
pared to about $100,000 spent by "
other candidate. But she Is coming
back for another whirl.
Being a wise politician, Miss Mar
tin hub advised Will Hays, chalrmnn
of the Republican national committee,
that she either will accept tho Repub
lican nomination ami light It out with
tho Democrats, or run as an Independ
ent and make It a threo-coniered race.
All of which has given Will something
to think about.
