Cox. The Governor personally appeared to be gratified, but the friends of the Democratic nominee were by no means certain that the event is propitious for him. The Governor's supporters said he had aided iti deciding the out? come in Tennessee. They said he '.vas in telephone communication this morning with Governor Roberts, and that the Ohio Governor said: "Gov : ernor, the mothers of America are for the League of Nations." He was told that there was in Governor Roberts's : office at that moment the man who 1 could furnish the necessary vote for ratification. The remark of the Ohio Governor was repeated to the Tennes? see lawmaker, who sa.id, "Well, 1 guess we'll have to put it over." Women Thank Governor When the news came the Governor was besieged by suffragist leaders who came to tender their thanks. He grate? fully acknowledged their sentiments, and at once went with the delegation to ?he north steps of the old State House, where he was photographed. The women in the party were Mrs. Abby Scott Baker, political chairman of the National Woman's Party; Mrs. James M, Rector, member of the ad? visory council and one of the commit? tee which was appointed at the in? stance of the Governor; Miss Gillette ; Hayden, state chairman, and .Mrs. Thaddeus Brown, wife of a prominent Republican politician holding office under the Governor. Mrs. Baker announced that the same group of women would go to Marion to be photographed with Senator Hard? ing. Mrs. Baker was by no moans in a frame of mind to indorse what had been said by Governor Cox about the salvation of civilization. She indicated ?that she would have more to say when suffrage was safe. Mrs. Baker, in her talk with news? paper men, said: "In my judgment the party that is most skillful in organiz? ing the women voters will get 70 per cent of their voting strength and will ' easily win the coming election." She denied that there was danger of negro domination in the South. In a canvass hero of possible effects of the addition of 1,000.000 female voters it was said that the negro ele? ment would figure largely. They vote the Republican ticket solidly in mu? nicipal ?lectinns in which they have been enfranchised by local charter. They are easily organized anil brought to the polls, party men say. Aims to Win Mothers That the Governor intends to make a strong drive on the mothers, wives and sisters of soldiers in the League : of Nations campaign was indicat? d in a suggestion he made to-day to Sen? ator Pat Harrison, of the speakers' bureau. With Harrison he discussed tl.e West? rn trip which he is soon t > make through Wisconsin to the Pacific and hack through Utah, Nebraska and M i s sou ri. In his interview with Harrison the Governor said: "The interest, especially is among disabled soldiers and their friends and those bereaved by war. Because of this I would respectfully suggest that in future meetings arranged for by you f r me and for any other national speaker, that the local committees be asKed to arrange that several rows of seats near the speakers' platform be reserved for disabled an?! other sol? diers and their families as well as Tam? iles of those whose loved ones died in the war." The Governor accepted an invitation to be present at the Ohio State Fair, on August 31. Senator Harding is to at? tend the fair, and it is hoped by offi? cials of the fair to have them there on the same ?lay. possibly together. An invitation also has been sent to Aaron S. Watkins, of Germantown, Ohio, the Prohibition candidate for President. He has not yet accepted. Governor Cox departed to-night for South Ben?!.. Ind., where he speaks twice to-morrow, under the auspices of the Indiana Democratic Editorial Asso? ciation. He goes by way of Chicago, returning here early Friday morning. He will go to Cantor! Saturday and re? turn here Sunday, leaving again Tues? day for Torre Haute, Princeton and Evansville. After an evening meeting the evening ?>i and will return here August 30. Woman Vote Expected to Aid Harding (Continuad from pago one) teen electoral votes for Cox. They based this on the moist appeal which ! Cox has been making and the spec? tacular enthusiasm for Cox amon?r the ?Jersey delegates at San Francisco. Democrats who have been privately | counting New Jersey's fourteen votes I for Cox on this issue were, asked to I night how they thought the women ; voting in New Jersey would affect this. j "The women of New Jersey, just as : tin women in other wet communities, I ?re just as wet as the rpen," replied one of these hopeful Democrats. "You ! will find them marching to the polls ] and voting for Cox in droves, in the l.npe that we will get a modification ; of this Volstead ,act." Wet Republicans, who have been in I dignant at the policy of the Demo? crats in trying to appear wet in New '? York and New Jersey but bone dry out ; in the Middle and Far West were ! chuckling to-night. "The Democrats will be sorry that they started this- moist appeal in New . Jersey," said one of them. "They won't fool many men among the Re : publicans with any false hope about ' the Volstead act. They know that Cox j will be just as powerless to help them ', as is Governor Edwards. But they ; have .made the women sore by their j promises to bring booze back, and the ?Jersey women are going to swat the : whole Democratic ticket in New Jersey. j Mark my prediction.'' On the Senate situation, however, there is real concern in Republican circles. Without this added /eomplica ! tion the situation was that the Re? publicans were cock-sure of the House ; of Representatives, fairly complacent ? about electing Harding, but worried to f death about the Senate. The present Republican margin in i the Senate is just one Senator?that . is, the substitution of one Democrat - for a Republican would result in a tie. And the cold facts are that Re- ' publican Senators are in danger of i i being beaten by their Democratic op? ponents in an uncomfortably large number of states, where the reasona- | ble chances of Republican Senatorial . 1 gains are few and far between. Two of these states in which Repub? lican Senators are in danger of defeat are New Hampshire and Connecticut, in which Senators George H. Moses! and Frank B. Brandegee are battling for reelection. Both have been strong ! anti-suffragists. On the other hand, if women vote as the prohibitionists think they will? that is. a considerably larger number voting dry than wet?it may aid Sen-: ator James E. Watson, of Indiana, in his uphill fight against Tom Taggart, ; one of the wet bosses, who put Cox j over at San Francisco. Watson voted j for the prohibition amendment and also to pass the Votstead act over President Wilson's veto. It might aid the Republicans to gain a Senator in Missouri, where Senator Spencer, Republican and dry, is bat? tling for reelection against Breckin ridge Long, Democrat and non-com? mittal on the liquor ?question, although with well known moist leanings. But, again, it would work against the Republicans gaining a seat in Ken? tucky, as Senator Beckham, whom they hoped to defeat, is an ardent dry. Those who contend that women have always in the states where they have voted for some time been more regu : lar so far as party ties are concerned I than the men, say that voting by worn : en will insure the election of Demo ; cratic Senators in Kentucky, Missouri i and Maryland, as those states are nor ; mally Democratic, and will aid the elec? tion of Republican Senators in Indiana land Illinois, (in Illinois women voted for President four years ago, but they would not have voted for Senator and members of the House djis year had the amendment not been^Tatified), and in other normally Republican states. Even those holding this view do not : make the contention as to New Hamp ' shire and Connecticut, where it is pos : sible that the cutting of Moses and ; Brandegee by ardent suffragists may ' be heavy. The final victory of the suffragists is not expected to affect the New \ork 1 Senatorial campaign, although opposi? tion to Senator Wadsworth, on account of his votes against the suffrage | amendment, has been made one of the : issues against him by George Henry ' Payne, his opponent for the Republi ! can nomination. But the women would have voted, anyhow, in New York, so : the only effect, on the New York fight ' is that the woman suffrage fight has ! passed into history. Ambassador Davis Sails LONDON', Aug.

Harding Says Indians Will Get Fair Deal If Elected He Will Put Ideal? ism Into Practice at Home Rather Than 'Abroad, Senator Tel?s Tribesmen ; Want Independent Nation Believes in Promoting the Policy of Democracy in Ameriea First, He Asserts Frovi ft Staff Correspondent MARION, Ohio, Aurr. 18,.?Senator Harding applied his America first ?policy constructively to-day in address- ! ing n delegation of American Indiana, j who pleaded for justice and fair deal- j ing at the hands of the government, j ?and in speaking to a group of lumber-! j men at. their annual picnic here. After listening to the woes of the i Indians the Senator said if he were j given the responsibility of office he | would put idealism and humanity into | j practice at home on such problems as j : presented by the Indians, rather than ! j seek to bestow American idealism S j abroad, where it/might not be wanted. ! when it meant the lives of Americans. I In his speech to the lumbermen he struck a similar note, calling for a self- ? ' reliant America?one that would not \ j have to depend in any way upon the , resources or energies? of other people. \ The Senator received delegates from i I twenty-three tribes on his front porch. : j Led by Many Antler? and Four Horns, j ; ancient braves of the Winnebagos of ) I Nebraska, the Indians made a colorful ! I appearance. The leaders were dressed ! ! in full native regalia of hunting cos- I turnes, moccasins, feathers, their shirts 1 decorated with mirrors, shells and. ! wampum. Many Antlers carried a peace j ?pipe. One of the delegation in address- ? | ing the Senator referred to him as ? ? "Senator Cox." "That's all right," said the Senator, ! I "he's a live fellow. ?You are all right..! ; I wiW he President anyway." The In- I | dians were shepherded by Thomas L. ! j Sloan, president of the Society of ! American Indians. Four-Horns, wljose other name is ? James Rice Hill, spoke first to the I : Senator. "How do, /everybody," said Hill, I j whose name in the tepees is Chief I I Four-Horns, speaking through David ! I Sincere, interpreter. "We come from I I home in Far West to greet you. Two ! i years ago you had a big fight ?he re- ! i ferred to the World .Wttr;. Our boys ! who went did well. Now, as American I citizens, we would like a voice in man- <: i aging our own affairs. We would like ! i to have freedom." Dr. Carlos Montezuma, an Apache j from Arizona, who was sold as a boy j for $13, spoke with fiery, rude elo quence, comparing the Indians to slaves, and asking Harding, from hn great throne in the White House, to j reach out and set them free. The In- j dians complained of the workings of j the Indian Bureau. In Montana, they ; say, some are starving. Senator Hard- i ing was moved by the appeal, and in j concluding his greeting to them, said: "I think you and ? will agree about one basic principle, and that is that the American Indian is just as much entitled to a s?iuare deal as any one ; else in this republic, and if we should be called to responsibility he will get : it. I would like to think, while we arc talking about democracy and humanity ? and idealism, that this Republic had j far better bestow it on the native ! American, whose lands the white man took, rather than waste American lives i trying to make sure of that bestowal ; thousands of miles across the sea. "I believe in the policy of promoting and bestowing, elevating, encouraging | and establishing the ideals of democ? racy in America first." Cigars were passed and Many Ant lers, Four-Horns and their brothers I chatted with Mrs. Harding and others on the porch. Many Antlers had a silver-mounted j peace pipe which was admired. Hard? ing buttons were pinned in the bright medley of shells, mirrors, hunting bags and feathers that adorned the tribes? men. They said there w??rc 17,500 In? dians in the war. The Senator spoke a little later at the lumbermen's picnic. He touched the same note of applying more energy ; : in rehabilitating American when, in a ? | discussion of the urgent nerd of re? forestation to keep up our lumber sup- j ply, he said. "1 have sought to emphasize thv ? ' thought of reforestation because I > ; think it is highly essential for the i United States to be ever thinking of j 1 self-reliance. We are so blessed with ' God's bounty, so varied in our produc-I tivity and so boundless in our re- I sources that the combination of Ameri? can genius and committal to conserva- I tion and cultivation will leave us inde- j pendent of the resources or the activi? ties of the remainder of the world." Day by day, in speeches and inter? views, the Senator drnws farther away from European entanglements. His thought on foreign policies becomes I more clear and sure. He will make the i issue against the covenant and Wilson ism stronger than ever in his address August 28 before the Indianapolis clubs. He has reserved the subject for that address. Says Assembly on't Admit Five Socialists Senate Leader Declares Leg- j islature Wi!l Reject Newj York Men at the Special S e s s io n, if Re-elected I . ALBANY, Aug. 18.?Senator J.Henry! Walters, majority leader of the upper ; house, said to-day that in his opinion ; the members of the Legislature, in ! special session, will refuse to reseat the five Socialist Assemblymen from ! New York City districts who were ex- ; pelled last session, even if these men ' are victorious in the coining special ; e 1 e c t i o n. The majority leader in the Senate | said that sentiment of Republican members of the Assembly with regard ; to socialism had not changed since a ? year ago and, if anything, the pre.ju- ! dice against socialistic doctrines had j increased. While making no direct prediction j "Senator Walters said that the war in ? Poland was tending to strengthen the , hostility of up-state forces toward So- i cialists or any cult that represented Bolshevik sentiment, and it is reason- j able to suppose, he said, that if the j five ousted Socialist Assemblymen ; from New York attempt to establish i themselves at the special session they j will be rejected. "In my opinion," the Senator said, ! "there is less chance for the Socialists now than there was a year ago. The Bolshevik invasion of Poland has aroused the prejudice of members who ; were not pronounced in their antago- ; tiism to the Socialists last year." Failure of the fusion movements in ! the Socialist districts has given rise to ; persistent reports that the five ousted members would return to the Assembly I for the special session. It is unli'tely, ; it is said, that Speaker Thaddeus C. Sweet will take the initiative and at> \ tempt to oust the men again until he ? is sure of the support of his Assembly. ; It is said that a vote will be taken to decide the question. A repetition of I the trial is not looked for.
