WEEKLY NEWS LETTER
(S. cial News Correspondent)
Washington, D. C., Sept. 12.-The
President surely realizes the truth of
the old c(age, "troubles never come
singly." He has had all of the 57
varieties in the !:1' few months. The
soft coal strike woi'ri'd him for
weeks, while he worried the miners
and operators with his impractical
efforts to settle it; as soon as he took
himself out of the equation the prob
lem was promptly adjusted. Then the
anthracite, strike kept him as rest
less as a hen on a hot griddle until
he finally gave that up in despair,
whereupon the parties in immediate
interest got together and patched ur
a peace of their own making. Then
he turned his attention to the rail
road strike with the result that he
made evert union man in the country
angry with his blanket injunction. Up
to this time it has not had the slight.
est effect toward breaking the strike,
but as in the coal strikes, olert lrs
and men are getting together without
go-betweens. The outstanding fact is
that in all three strikes, Harding has
absolutely failed to get results.
In the political field his influence
seems to be equally powerless. In
Indiana his ticket was snowed, in
California, a rampant progressive,
Johnson, won heavily, in Wisconsin
La Follette made a fearless fight on
everything that was dear to the Pre
sident's heart and won by a huge ma
jority. Gan field standing for the
Harding policies, was smothered. In
Iowa, Brookhart, who is denounced by
the adrainistration papers of the State
as a Socialist, got away with the Sen.I
atorial nomination. Even in Missss
ippi the Harding influence went far
toward the defeat of Vardaman in the
Democratic primary when it became
known that 'the President had express
ed the hope that he be returned to
the Senate. In Michigan it looks like
Townsend, close to Harding and
Newberry, may slip through only by
reason of the fact that the opposition
is divided among three men. But
there, as in Iowa, Massachusetts and
Ohio, the Democrats expect to elect
their candidate in Novembcr.
A few days ago there came up in
the Senate a bill providing an addi
tional federal judgeship for Michigan,
and the Michiganders thought it very
necessary---possibly to handle soie
more boodle cases. At all events, they
wanted the judgeship, but the bill
failed because there were not enough
Republican Senators on hand to
bring it up. Among the missing
were the two gentlemen accredited
from Michigan herself-Newberry and
Townsend. Townsend was at home
fighting to save his scalp, while New
berry was golfing at his summer
home in Rhode Island. But why
should he stay on the job ? Does he
owe the people of Michigan anything?
He bought and paid for all he has got
ten in Michigan politics.
The Republican National Committee
in giving out the statement that it
exp~ectedl to control the next House~
by a majority of 30 in lieu of the pre
sent majority of 1619, is merely trying
to soften the blow. Certain inner
circle Rep~ubl icans do not expject to
control the newv I louse b~y any sort of
majii~ity; in fact, the Washington
Star, ani adin aistra tion mllyeild e
had an editorial the other (lay dliscuss
ing the qutestion oif who would lie the
De(mocra1tic Speaker. In this c'onnie
tion it is interesting that the Western
Republicanis are ('auclusing on the
'iues tion of 0(1st inzg Speakher G;~illett
in the event that his Party still retains
control. In that enat. legrlets and

another of the wretched blunders of

Speaking of their majority reminds
that there is an interesting tale being
whispered around Washington-it is
that the party management, in its dire
extremity, has, like the sailors men

Jonah and is in process of casting
him to the fishes. The Jonah will be 4

other words, no attempt will be made
by the National Committee to save the
big aggregation of accidents who were
carried in by the Harding landslide
of 1920. Missouri alone is to lose a
dozen, including Iluckriede, whose
chief claim to fame is that he defeat
ed Champ Clark, though running
thousands of votes behind Harding,
and another whose greatest asset is
a beard a foot long. Oklahoma has
already ditched Herrick, more's the
pity, for the Democrats had him pick- t
ed as their meat. Ohio and Indiana, i
Kentucky and Tennessee, Kansas and
Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Mary- S
land, all will leave Republicans at t
home. And the tale goes further- (
to-wit: that only those sitting Mem- b
bers of longer tenure will be given fin
