In congress has given a black eyo

"Compulsory military training" sounds bad to
the American ear. Anything compulsory Is to

was theio ever secured that unity of purpose

Senator Owen is showing an carntat

Governor Cox, on the othor hand,
has real strength. Ills Ohio resi
dence Is, of course, 11 moat valuable
asset. And ha also has a good record
as governor of the nation's fourti

If the republican convention

Governor Cox would bo an oddH-on

WlilcJi 1'nrty Will Control C'ongnxn?
The question of tho control of tho
next congress has become almost as
much In tho calculations of both
democrats nnd republicans as the
Thirty-two senators and tho mem
bership of tho cntiro houso of rep
resentatives, with tho exception of
those hulling from tho "ootid south,"
will bo the prUes for which repub
licans nnd democrats ore contending.
Hvi nts that have unrolled aluco thu
anulstlco was signed have oh own tho
country D10 Important part control of
congress plays In tho mochanlsm of
our government. During Dm war re
publicans vied with democrats In
support of tho administration. This
was a patriotic attitude which tho
country oxpueted And which waa in
keoplng with tho seriousness of tho
situation for all the peoplo. Tho mo
ment tho war ended, that moment,
luckily for .tho notion, party strife
recommoncod, nnd It has grown moro
and moro bitter ns timo has passed.
v President Wilson Is having tho
Kimil oxperlenco with a hostile con
giess that Grovor Clovol.ind under
went. Uoth menxwcro hated even by
mombors of their own party nnd both
pursued their way without reference
to tho views of tho aUtesnien at tho
capltol. Difficult as the times wero
for Mr, Cleveland, they aro Infinitely
moro difficult for Mr. Wilson, Tho
latter Is entangled In a controversy of
extreme bitterness over questions of
foreign policy which havo not D10 In
tlm.ilo 1 elation to tho Interests of tho
peoplo that tlio tariff problem had in
llcpuhllnins Aro HrapoiLslhlc.
Mr. Wilson can do nothing III tho
way of legislative accomplishment
any moro than Mr. Cleveland was ablo
to do. It Is tho republican!! In cotf
grcss who have control, and ,lt is the
republican party which will get tho
credit or tho blamo from the voters
In connection with tho action they
mny tuKo or fall to tiiKo.
with tho party In power In con
trol In congress, It Is, of course, much
easier to secure nccompllahmcnt and
to make a record upon which to ap
peal to tho peoplo. For Instance, of
tho four congresses which have
acrvod slnco Mr. Wilson uMiumed Die
pri-sldency, tho chief executive was
ablo on the ground of party policy
and party expediency to Jam through
the first threo of them a number of
monaurcfl that woro pointed to "with
prido"ln democratic cntnp;gn hooka.
Now, so far as congress Is concerned,
the democrats must take tlio attitude
of the party in opposition and criti
cise the republicans for fulling to
carry out recommendations made by
tho president. This tho republicans
will offset by showing what thoy
havo nctually dono.

aro hopeful of such n awoll, but nt

certainty that only sovon will bo

troniondonsly in continuing In tho
senate if ho should bo cloctcd mi

tically certain. Tho republicans can
tount on tho election of four sena

represented by Cummlnsr Hilling

spectively, and In nil probability on
tho election of flvo. others from
Connecticut, Kansas, Wisconsin,
Utah and Indiana, represented by
Hrandegco, Curtis, Lenroot, Smoot

Republicans hero beliovo that tho
situation In the party councils in
Oklahoma will soon adjust Itself and
a strong candidate will bo put in the
raco for tho toga now worp by Sen

is tho dcmocatlc candidate. It is be
llevod a strong republican has nn ex

Senator Chamberlnlh has a good
chanco of bolng returned in conse
quence of tho attltudo of indo
poudenco which ho adopted during
tho wur. Tho republicans believe
that aaldo from ChambcrUUn, thoy
will mnko gains which will secure a
respectahlo addition to their mem
bership in tho senate. Senator Phelan
Is' counting upon' bis own record to
win him re-election, but the repub
licans havo high hones of matching
Senutor Johnosn wlfli another mem
ber of their party, especially In view
of the gradual disappearance of a
great deal of tho feeling botween
them and the progressives. So far as
Ohio is concerned, Senator 'Harding's
position is rathor difficult In vlow of
his candidacy for tho presidency,
but nil the reports received indlcato
that 11 republican will bo elected
whether It bo Harding or some one
else. Indiana is regarded us almost
certain to return Watson. This like
wise Is true of Now Hampshire, and
Senator Gronna stnnds so well, with
tho great farmer voto of North Da
kota that hU re-election Is regarded
as a foregono conclusion.

Senator Wadsworth Is much
stronger lt Now'York Dion tho dem

with his .nttltildn -toward legislation
of particular Interest to women, are
oveivomlnjr, according to ull re
ports, tho prejudlco directed against
him. A careful Investigation of the
claims of bath parties would seem to
Indicate, unless thero should bo a
