WHEELER HAS ALWAYS FOUGHT
FOR IDEAS OF WHAT IS RIGHT
from Seventeenth Page.)
oldest born, came along and, two
years later, charming Miss Elizabeth.
But the couple fought as they have
been ever since, side by side.
Wheeler’s first delve into politics
came when he was named delegate .to
a county convention. He took to
politics like a fish to water. Ready
of speech—able to defend himself and
his cause at a second's notice—quick
at repartee—he soon establshed a
reputation as a fighter among fight
ing men.
At hipped. But He Keeps On.
Os course, a man so positive in
character was bound to make enemies.
He went after the nomination for at
torney general. According to the
rules of scenario writers and novel
ists, Wheeler should have been nomi
nated triumphantly. He was not. He
was licked. But when the votes were
counted it was found that he had
been defeated by just one and one
half votes! The use of money in the
convention became a State issue. Then
Wheeler was nominated for the
State legislature and was elected. For
two years he fought the copper in
terests.
Wheeler was named United States
attorney by Attorney General Greg
ory and served until 1920. Then he
was named for governor of the State.
He had served as attorney for
about two years when Senator Walsh
came up for re-election. Walsh was
told he would be defeated \ unless
Wheeler stopped insurging. Walsh
appealed to Wheeler in the interest
of party success, and AVheeler re
signed.
More determined than ever
AVheeler obtained the nomination for
governor on the Democratic, ticket,
in 1920. He was licked everlasting
ly! But two years later, still fight
ing, he came back, this time with a
tod for the senatorial nomination, ob
tained it, and—swamped his opponent.
His conduct since he entered the
Senate is too well known to need
much retelling. As prosecutor of
Harry M. Daugherty, acting tor the
Brookhart committee. W.heeler made 1
a record of national import. He had 1
always been a Democrat. Ho had
supported Democratic candidates and
had been active in Democratic coun
cils. , *
Having been a Democrat all your j
adult life, why did you espouse the !
cause of Senator Ha FolletleV,” asked j
the writer.
Culls Old Parties Useless,
“Because the two old parties have I
entirely outlived their usefulness.’’ ;
replied AA’heeler. “The Republican |
party has become so corrupt from j
stem to stern that no honest citizen !

who believes in clean government can
vote for the candidacy of Mr. Cool

voters are putting their stamp of ap
proval upon the debasement of the
Department of Justice, the corruption
in the Veterans' Bureau and crimi
nality in the Department, of the
Interior.
“Mr. Coolidge is undoubtedly per
sonally honest. But the Republican
organization which is supporting him
and which will be responsible for his
election, if he is elected, is seething
with corruption, so allied with the
reactionary forces of the Nation and
so devoid of all thought of the great
masses of the people that it would
be nothing short of a calamity to re
turn Mr. Coolidge to the AVhite
House—honest though he is—surrounded
by such a corrupt organization.
"It was not Mr. Harding who was
responsible for conditions in Wash
ington so much as it was the corrupt
organization that dominated his nom
ination and election. It was tins same
organization which nominated Mr.
Coolidge and this same organization
will dominate his appointments and
actions in case of his election. He
already has shown himself incapable
of dealing effectively with the an
noying scandals of the present ad
ministration, due somewhat to the
power of the machine over his party.
‘‘On tiie other hand, the Democratic
party in its national convention nom
inated a candidate for the presidency
of the United States who is the direct
representative of the same reaction
ary forces that dominate the Repub
lican party. And the Democratic
platform offers no hope to the farmer,
to the laborer, or to the small busi
ness man of the country.
“There is no difference today be
tween the Democratic party and the
Republican parly. They will receive
their campaign contributions from
the same interests and the same cor
rupt business organizations.
“The Democratic party in the last
Congress had no constructive pro
gram. It was composed of some
Democrats who were just as reac
tionary as some of the Republicans.”
“Then what part did it play7”
“Democrats a Parly of Protest."
“It was merely a party of protest.
The Republican party is still talking
about the grand old party of Abraham
| Hincolu. just as the Democratic party
j is still talking about Thomas Jeffer
son. Het me say that if Hincolu and
Jefferson could come back to earth

ganlzation. What ' would he have
done with Daugherty, Denby, Kali
and Forbes?
"And I am wondering whether
AVoodrow Wilson, the great progres
sive Democrat, would have been able
to support a candidate who repre
sents the interests which Wilson &o
frequently denounced.”
"Then you consider Mr. Davis as
not progressive, despite his speech of
acceptance?”
’’Het me answer that in my own
way. Some of the spineless progres
sive Democrats are now proclaiming
Mr. Davis a progressive' Democrat,
and yet when one of those same
Democrats was offered an opportu
nity to run as vice presidential can
didate with Mr. Davis he absolutely
refused, for the reason that he con
■ sidered him a man who represented
the interests he himself had been
fighting. If Mr. Davis is a progres
sive Democrat, why did Senator
AVaish refused to run for A’ice Presi
dent with him?”
The junior Senator has promised to
support the senior Senator from their i
State. Montana, in his fight for re- )
election. There has been friction be- j
tween them. Both were much in the I
limelight througli their senatorial I
investigations. Evidently, Senator i
AVheeler is not enthusiastic about
Senator AVaish. The former declined
to dilate on his remarks, so the writer
switched the subject to the Progres
sive party.
"What has the Progressive party to
offer?” he asked.
Richard, Aged 5, Ends Interview.
“First of all,” replied AVheeler, “we
offer Robert M. Ha Follette. His rec
ord for constructive legislation in
Wisconsin as governor, and in AVash
ingtou as Senator, his record for i
honesty and decency is enough to I
satisfy any intelligent person who |
thinks for himself and still believes I
in the principles upon which the
Government was founded. AVe are |
opposed to a dictatorship in this j
country, whether it be a dictatorship
of the autocratic forces of AVall
street or a dictatorship of the pro
letariat. AVe desire to take this Gov
ernment out of the hands of the
autocratic forces that now control
both of qjo old parties and to place
it back into the hands of the masses
of the people, where it belongs."
Which ended our talk, for just then
Edward, aged 19; Frances, aged 7.1
and Richard, aged 5. demanded that |
their father come downstairs where!
a delegation of neighbors was wait- j
ing to lake him and Mrs. AVheeler

Senator from Montana gathered his
