At Ills campaign opening In ICcnton
Mr. Harding Bald: "Spcclllcally, hero
in Ohio wo need hiicIi enactment, and
Its cnforcenit'iit, as will make Impos
sible tlui .deplorable situation so long
disturbing tho tramiuillty of our capi
tal city. The public weal demands that
disputes between public service cot-
poratlons and their employes be speed
ily adjusted by aibllratlon, or left to
n utilities commission, or some other
milttblo tribunal of Immediate resort,
whose settlement will bo Just and fin
al." This will do veiy well for sentl
hiont, but sentiment cannot obviate
facts. If Mr, Hardliigthoughlhc was do
ing somothlngclcvcrby tiylng to make
political capital of the Columbus
strike he probably focgot for thu time
holng bis own rccoid on arbitration as
, a member of tho slate senate.
j Wlion tho municipal code, common
ly known as tho Cox code, was enact
ed at a spoclal session of the legisla
ture In 1002. Mr. Harding was a member
of tho senate and served on the confer
once committee which made the final
draft of tho code as enacted. Tho
house hud adopted by a vote of GG to
22 an amendment offered by Repre
sentative Gitorln (llep.) of Sandusky
to require a compulsory arbitration
clause inserted in street railway fran
chlse. This amendment was killed
by tho conference committee, and
It la chnrged that Mr. Harding at the
behest of Senators Manna and Forakor
was Instrumental In having it killed.
Mr. Harding's speech as a candidate
for governor does not coincide with
Ills record as a stato hcnalnr.
Having n long iwcotd for straddling

What do the people of Ohio think of the bomb that Governor Harmon ex
ploded In his speech at tho opening of tho Democratic campaign at Canton
Aro they willing to admit, with Watrcn G. Harding, that "everybody know
tho funds wero not kept in the treasury?" Was It with cheerful sanction that
tho State of Ohio lost thousands of dollars in Interest on checks, tho money
for which had boon paid, while months went by before tho stato profited by
collection from favored banks?
What do tho voters and taxpayers think of tho system of financiering
while Mr. Harding wns Lieutenant Governor and "in good health" when tho
saintly Mr. Cox added to his revenues by a quiet little understanding with his
Republican friends nt tho Capitol?
Will thoy laugh away and make merry over tho letter from tho Republican
Stato Treasurer to tho treasurer of Mr. Cox's Cincinnati bank, and that amia
bio gentleman's reply thoreto?
What do they think of the agreeable and harmonious scheme as planned
by tho collusive plundorors and thus outlined by tho Republican State Treas
urer: Our quarterly settlement comes on Saturday, February i, so I wish that
you would kindly have tho currency hold by you hero not later than Friday, tho
3rd. SHOULD YOU WISH IT YOU CAN HAVE IT BACK THE FOLLOWING
It is on such a statcmont as this that the Republican leaders are ready to
embark on a political campaign? Do thoy think that their candidate Harding
is Justified in calling en "all Republicans," from Taft to Cox, from Roosevelt
to Foraker, to assist hlra in returning to a system of private favors to a priv
ileged ring at tho expenso of tho body politic 7
Is Mr. Harding, candldato for Governor, qulto as complaisant to the old
regime and tho old system of tho Investment of stato moneys as in tho palmy
days of grafting when ho was Lieutenant Governor and "In good health?" Is
there good and sufllcient evidence that ho has been converted to a better and
sounder system of flnanco sluco the easy-going days of 1903?
' If ono roads tho signs of the times correctly, if one may judgo from the
sentiment of tho people two years -ago, and still more btrongly expressed to
day, there will bo no opportunity to resume the operations of the underground
rnllway or tho overhead cash ttolley between bhe stato treasury and tho prof
iting bank vaults, for use four times a year on Fridays and Mondays only.
A Tho people of Ohio have been taught by tho present executive tho dif
ference between an honest ndmlnlstiatlon and tho collusion of grafters. They
know that with Judson Harmon on guard tho 'old days of juggling with the
people's money have passed away and a system of stilct watchfulness and
honesty has been adopted. They know this, not becauso ho made promises
two years ago, but becauso for two years ho has kept eery promise, has ex
posed and routed tho gt afters and brought upon himself the hatred of every
ctook and sharper.
Contrast tho past with tho present, tho old gang of plunderers, eager for
another meal at tho public crib, with a genuine leformer whose energy has
stopped tho cash delivery mid return systotn, rehabilitated a sound ordor of
stato flnancioilng, saved thousands of dollars of the public money, and as
sured an administration of honesty and fair dealing and chooso!

Tho proportion of church coramunl
ennts In Ohio to tho total population,
according to tho government's now re
ligious census, is grentor than ono in
throo. Tho total number of such com
municantsnil churches counted, Is
1,742,873, Tho population of tho stato
Is n llttlo less than 4,500.000. The
Catholics numbor 557.CG0, nnd tho
Protostnnts 1,171,081. It will surpriso
some to know that there aro 1G07 peo
ple in Ohio who admit that thoy aro
members of tho Mormon church.
Tho nvorago numbor of mombors of
a church is 178 a fact that goes far
toward sustaining tho contention of
many that thoro are often two church
es whore thoro Is room for only ono,
Tho nvorago amount of property per
church is ?71D2 nnd tho nvorago debt
of each church Is $3764, which shows
that tho avorago church Is carrying

FAT MEN BAD AVIATORS
It Is noticeable that most of tho
aviators aro oxtremely thin men and
thoso of them who aro not, or who ob
serve a tendency to embonpoint, must
pray with Hamlet, "Oh, that this too,
too solid flesh would melt!'' The lean
and hungry Casslus as an aviator
would have left Brutus at tho earth,
and Ariol aloft on his own wings
would have laughed to scorn tho
crude Caliban's attompts at aviation.
Nevertheless tho fat men havo tho
aviators beaton literally hands down
when It comes to swimming. Tho arH
proacning rat man's convention should
challengo the aviators to a floating
contest. Doubtless some Insolent air
man would respond with a contemptu
ous, "Ah, come off tho earth; get out
of tho wot!" Boston Horald.
