James Mlddle t• ■ii IV> is due fi the circumstance that he was the ‘wettest’ eaiulidute in sight: *a the desire to get as far away iV'.in Wiisonism as p. ssilde. an i to the I‘aet that the nomir.ee is from Ohio, **• ■■ '.••••> .j- i ..x, although the San Fraia iseo platform is silent en the I>n h. it ion question and the conven tion voted down the t’oekran plank to permit the making of wines and beet f r home purchases, is known to 'o an qien opponent of the Eighteenth Amendment. He was strenuou-iy op sed by William J. Bryan and 'he Ar i Saloon League.

It seems to he the same lo''y in every section of the country — a 'body talking polities, no humming ■ f political machinery, no evidence that a great National election is im peiiding. Chi reason V Well, thei enty be a variety of minor reasons But the primary reason is, evidently, the gen eral assumption that the result is al ready settled. in the widespread dissatisfaction with the NN ilson administration, any Democratic candidate would have found an almost impossible barrier to his sheet— -. The biggest and strong est man the party could boast would hardly have been able to stem the Nation-wide anti-Wilson sentiment, i ex has, id’ course, been hopelessly inadequate to the task. Without the dignity of a presidential candidate and without the capacity of a first-rate statesman, Cox's chances have grown slimmer as his campaign has pro gressed. The people seem everywhere to realize the fact and, In consequence, there is none of the interest f a re a. contest. It i- in Maryland as eisewnere. F> r a time it seemed as if the political at n. —ph ri* of this State might he - ir • harged with a Hit • f heat and lightn il - through the clashing of the Smith mill Weller candidacies for the U.

Mr. Weller seems to betrusting to his eombinal'on- with c rtain elements of the Ba'.lim re city democracy and the "wet vote.” it looked for a time as if the Candi da y of W.Ashhie Hawkins, the color ed lawyer, might produce some intor ■ 'ting developments in Weller’.- cam nalgn. Hut Hawkins'canu’idaey i- not :kc!y to aomunt to much. A small, a v small, percentage of the colored vole, will 1 e given him as a "declara- | ion of it pendence." But nine- j tenth- ' f the colored vote will do 1 j 'S' what theyare told to d- by their I white leaders and the out on Weller . from that source will he hardly ; enough to hurt much. As a con.-e- j ■eieiieo, tli ■ race between Smith and 1 Weller is likely to be a close one.

Each wilt probably pole his party vote in this county and the tight will have to he settled "down the shore” where all the ' evidences of battle seem to lie. Such a review of conditions, on the 1 eve of a great Bresidenliol, Senatoria. and Congressional election, must seem very flat and uninteresting.
