Want A?.l a i vi : Blaze of Party Rivalry To End Campaign in Ohio Republicans Claim State by 100,000 to 200,000, but Will Continue to Work; Harding Pleased With Keeeption on Western INew York Trip Fro ' o Staff Correspondent MARION, Oct. 22. - When Senator ' Harding appeared this morning in his little private office in the headquarters building just across from the front porch, he found upon hi? desk a large stack of letters and telegrams, for there is no such thing as rest for that s?>n of toil, a candidate for the Presi? dency. I'pon the road he is at everybody's mercy. His private car, the only home he can claim, is overrun with folk, all excellent persons, doubtless, but all fevered, and obsessed with a mad de? termination to take the great man o:T into the most private of corners and whisper to him the thrilling informa? tion that "I know what's going ? n in our part of the state, Mr. President, and don't let anybody tell you lifter? ont." At times when he should be rest? ing or sleeping to recover from the exhausting grind of a dozen speeches a day, lie is caught by amiable but thoughtless fellow citizens and whirled hither and yon, hand shaken until his wrist swells to a siae half again as great as normal, pursued and pestered and pecked at until the wonder is that human reason can stand so much with? out a temperamental explosion of some kind. At home, where the hard-ridder creature of destiny has a right tc look for repose, he finds not onl> masses of correspondence demanding instant and particular attention, bul v s;: ?ng politicians who hammer at his door demanding the five minutes thai always grow into half an hour. IK m st 'a:! away at preparing; advance speeches so that the newspapers maj carry some record of his daily though! in section? of the United States th.v lack up-to-date telegraphic facilities Of pr vacy, he has none. He is trailei in'o his private apartments, and th?. flavor of h s cifrar is ruined by th< small talk of pi I it ici ans. No man can better read the lamen 'aliens of Job. can have a better un tanding of what was in Job': mind, than he who is aspiring; to be th? Pr sident of the United States. Hears Good News I n m New Jersey So, as has been said, Senator Laid ing rested in Marion to-day, chattin? with his fri?n I, Senator Edge, who i here for a visit of a day or tw'o, an? hearing some good news from Ne-, Jersey. Senator Edge has not as to what his slate will do for th national ticket. Senator Harding considers that hi trip to western New York was a sue cess. Some people had feared thi possible effect of an appearance ii such labor centers as Rochester am Buffalo, wheie Cox has been busy an where the agents of Gompers hav? bet n hard at. work. As a matter o fact, the several audiences in thos cities, were largely composed of labor ing men, and ?larding received froi them a very cordial greeting. He v, a r, t heckled at any time, ami th principal characteristic of he Nei York State meetings was tense in ti rest in what he had to say and grea . - ; cet for him personal y. As regards New York State and it I political drift, the ?nformaticn tha comes to Senator Harding is of th ?i '. It is true, of course, that fo\ ? iple care to carry ill news to candidate. It might be excellent the Republican National Commit!" could hire Democrats in every cit I d " y their man to go to hii with the opinions and prognostic! ? ons of the other side. As a rule h gets too much of rosy report. Al ; ?mpting, however, every necessai '? unt as regai ?Is ! he New Yo r situation, Senator Harding feels ih: state is his comfortably, and willing ti? accept the estimate of majority of not less than 300,000, c Cory for Wadsworth by somethin and of victory for Judge Mill? ' v still less. lie is ready row to return his attei ICn to his own state. In the clos i i days of the campaign Ohio will rir and resound with campaign orator It remains the battleground of the I!)'. [campaign, and the contest will be fought as savagely as political contest 'was ever waged between Lake Erie and ' the Ohio River. Harding himself, ? Charles E. Huche--, Hiram Johnston, doubtless, and many other ?if the lead . ing Republican speakers will cover the state from end to end. and in every district and county lesser folk will he busy. While Harry M. Daugherty claims : Ohio by 100.000 for publication and privately believes Harding's majority 'will run to 200,000, neither Mr. Daugh ! erty nor any one else is standing idly by. They are working ami will work until the last hour of the camffaign. riu same is true of the Democrat-. Cox, having toured Indiana ostensibly to help Tom Taggart, but actually in th?- interest-; of ..'ames Middleton Cox, : will hasten into Ohio in th?' last week ami then sparks will fly. The bitterest campaign in the history of the state is predicted. As for Senator Harding, he purposes > continue tit?? calm an.! even tenoi of his dignified way, confining liimsclt entirely to the issues of the campaign the League of Nations especially. Hr does not intend to attack Govcrnoi Cox or President Wilson or any othei individual, nor even to mention then | by name. 1!?? does not believe in thai sort of fighting. There will he plent.\ of it, however, without him, and it spite of his personal position, for Co: will tin?! in this state Republican; ?.'.i '?' as familiar with rough an? | tumble scrapping as he is himself. League Issue Emphasized So far as the Republican campaigi to he conducted in Ohio hn 1 else whore, for that matter, is concerned especial efforts will be made to hoi? In. in?' Republicans who are still, mor oc less, touched hypnotically about th league and who scent to he waverin? ? : r cours ?'. It can be rial ed : ha .'? ? ator Harding himself will take tow? ard these the following attitude: First -He will essay to prove tha 1 ague covenant as presented < and rejected by the Senate is a wa breeder and not a war prevente) wholly un-American in certain part: .--.tcli as Article X. and entirely unac ?eptable. He will endeavor to clea away any possible d?"ii)t as to au un amended, rcservationless covenant. II ?' against it will not hav? it. Second lie will try to make every body understand that Europe, an France particularly, cares little whethc United States re ?eci the prescr ''?eue proposition, so loll;; as th United S-;.: s consents to join sun form of world associatic n l?vele against the spirit of war and injustice ;4' lias to support, him in his contei | tion the statements of Frenchmen ? ion and authority, including St? phanc Lauzanne, the noted editor. II will state that his main purpose is t about a world association of tit nature, one that all of the people ( he United Stales ran approve, and thi to th s ?-n?l he will seek and folio the advice of the sanest, sounde: | minds that can he foun-< -Republican Democrats, women as will as men. ( Ox's Predicament Taking; their cue from their paO (.chief, campaign speakers will foil.' these main ideas in the closing da; of the campaign, ami will empli i i: i point in particular, that friend; ? ?a practical, workable world as ? clatic have nothing whatever to ?xpect fro Governor Cox, who stands committi (> the Wilson doctrine that the prcS ? league contract must be taken wit out essential change, without any re cvvations except clarifying statemer Moreover, the poinl wii! he mad?; th ? v?-n if Cox were to be elected he c >u ? find to supnorl him enough So ators to ratify the present leagu? pr nosal. T'ne appeal will !?? made ;;. ?i?lly, therefore, that t'? e hope of tl idealists in international affairj L in a new deal all round, in consenti! tu ;?. law form of league or associ l'on or society. Senator Harding received from T W. P.

Declares the Candidate I^rom a Stoff Correspondent RICHMOND, Va,, Oct. 22. America's duty in to solve its own economic prob lema before attempting to reconstruct Europe, Governor Calvin Coolidge de? clared to-day in his campaign through Virginia. He asserted that the higl cost of living was due largely to thi unwisdom of the present Administra tion in sending billions of dollars worth of food and clothing to Europe at a time when these supplies were needed at home. The Republican party, the Governoi sai?!, is pledged to build up America first and foreign countries, afterward The party will not look with favor or the suggestion that the A ?lies' \va; debts to this country be cancelled, hi added. The Governor's tour to-day took hin into several towns regarded as Demo cratic strongholds. He spoke in Rich mond to-night before an audienc? : which tendered him an ovation. Heckler Answered At South Boston, Ya., the Governor': special train stopped because the towT bears the same name as the Massachu setts capital. The specchmaking in South Bostoi 'was interrupted by the first hecklinj experienced since the party left Wash ington last Sunday. Governor Morrov of Kentucky, who, with Governor Low den of Illinois and Job E, Hedges, o New York, is making rear platforn speeches, had launched an attack oi the League of Nations when somebod; in the crowd yelled: 'Well, tell us wha Lodge and Root want more war'.'" "I'll tell you what they want," re plied Governor Morrow. "They wan an enforcement of the principles firs voiced by Virginia's most illustriou citizen, George Washington. They wan to keep this country free from en tangling foreign alliances. They wan to prove the right of a free people t refuse to send its soldiers to fight th wars of other nations." Referring to the high cost of livint Governor Coolidge said the presen Administration had neglected every op portunity to relieve it. "You would hav thought the government would hav taken eveiy precaution to lift the bur ??ens heaped upon our people," he con tinned. "Yet $4,000,000,000 worth o supplies were sent to Europe and so! there for $400,000,000, or one-tent their cost. At a time when sugar wa selling for 20 cents a pound m thi country we sold 22,000,000 pounds t France for '2 cents a pound. Had thos supplies been kept here they would ma tcrially have reduced the cost of livinj "Most of our economic unrest is du to the refusal of the present Adminis tration to relinquish its war-time pow ers. While here in Virginia, I am re minded that Washington, immediate] aftei tin Revolutionary War. app? ire before the Continental Congress t give up the power intrusted to hin But ?.ur present Administration, almos two year;-- after the armistice, sti diners to its power, although severa times the Republican Congress lia trie?! to restore the country to a peace time basis." Sympathy for Wilson Governor Coolidge told his audienc in Richmond that Senator Haritig ur the views <>:' Washington and Jel ferson, rather than those of Woodro' Wilson. He added: "Allow me hero, in the sta'e thi gave him birth and that has added hi name as the eighth of her son;-, to a tain tl:?' Presidency, to express the syn pathy of Massachusetts and th.? syn pathy of the party of which 1 am member to President Wilson in his i! ness, and to express the hope of h speedy and complete recovery."

City; Miller Choice Over Smith Bets of 6 to 1 that Senator Harding would win fie Presidential election, found few takers yesterday. In the Wal] Street district, where many brok? ers hitherto have reaped a harvest in placing election bets on a commission basis, it was said that backers of Gev i ernor Cox were demanding odds of 7 to 1 and even 8 to 1. Even when al? lowed these margins, they said little if any Cox money was in evidence. A report that Chicago book makers .-.-er?' placing bets favoring Harding on a 5 to 2 basis caused amusement. The story was generally doubted; i; being pointed out that one Wall Street firm had trie?! in vain for a week to ways ,? $30,000 against $5,000 on the S? nator. Lively betting continued, however, on the probability of either candidate carrying certain states. Even terms .vere offered and accepted quickly that the Republican nominee would carry New York state by 300,000. Bets of 7 to G were made that Harding would carry New York City. ? Odds of ,'! to 1 wer,? offered that Harding would sweep Ohio, and, 8 to 5 that his plurality there would exceed 35,000. Betting on the gubernatorial contest 'tween Governor Smith and Judge Nathan L. Miller held, the Republican i . ; didate the favorite. Generally odds of 2 to 1 prevailed, and large .sums of money were in evi? dence. Supporters of Governor Smith d? ???'? uuled '?'? to 1, with few takers. One large bet at 11 to 5 in favor of Judge M ?Her was placed. Considerable interest was shown, and I ''.-.'? was even on the chaucis of '?? Attorney Swann beinjr elected to the Supreme Court bench. Ihis was to be due to the fact that he had ' ? a indorsed by the United Building l'rai i Cou :il of New York, repre nting more than 400,000 trade union ! . According to many close observers past c. ions the trend of ??- t ting is a safe .barometer of results. Fred II. Schumm, said to be an author? ity on the subject, explained that on three occasions only since 1888, when Crovor Cleveland ran against Harriso . with the odds at 10 to 8 on the former, had gamblers been wrong. On of*the three occasions was the Cl veland-Harrison campaign above : mentioned and another the Cleveland ; : rrison ? lee! ion in 1892, w hen thi odds wi >" in to 9 in favor of Harrison. Mr. Cleveland, however, was elected. The odds were at fault, also, in the Hughes-Wilson campaign. Republicans in Georgia Put Democrats on Ticket ATLANTA, Ca., Oct. 22.
