COLUMBUS, io, Aug. 18,?Ratifi?
cation of equai rage by the Ten?

produced varied emotions in the en
tourage of Go mor Jamos M. 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
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 !
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.

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

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
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.
