An rights of re-publtcation of special dlspatchea nereia TUESDAY MORNING OCTOBER 19, 1920 j Hardness of heart is a dreadful i quality, but it is doubtful whether, in j the long run, it works more damage I than softness of head. Theodore Roosevelt. Why Covarnor Campbell We do not believe that the most sanguine Demo crat in the United Statea believes. If he is reaaonably well informed, that Governor Cox stands the slightest show of being elected. Rather, well Informed Demo crats share with Republicans the expectation, that on November 2 there will be such a landslide as has not been witnessed since the Orant-Greely campaign of 1872. There is hardly loss doubt that the Re publicans will gain several senators and increase their membership in the house so that the Republi cans will have such an absolute control of the govern ment as they have not enjoyed for sixteen years. We will refrain from an expression of our be lief that that will be a good thing for the country at arge. Our Democratic friends inform us that it will lot be, and they predict, the prediction amounting to m admission of Republican victory, that if the Re publicans win they will make such a muddle of 'hlngs that Harding will be the last Republican presl Jent we shall see in a quarter of a century. But we aiay also let that pass. But there are some things we may reasonably be 'icve. Accepting the fact that we are going to have Republican administration and a strong Republi can congress after March 4 next, it must appear that f Arizona, which wants many things and Maricopa :ounty which especially wants and most sorely needs protection for its greatest industry, that of long itaple cotton, should put themselves Into a position '.o -appeal to the party in power. They can do that, Arizona, by the re-election of Governor Campbell nd Maricopa county", by rolling up for him such a iplendld majority as H gave him four years ago and igaln. two years ago. The mere election of a Republican governor, while that would put the state or the county Into a stronger position, would not be so much desired as the election of Governor Campbell whose standing with Senator Harding and the leaders of the part Is much higher than any Arizona governor has ever enjoyed with his national party leaders. We may stato as a fact that in the whole list of American governors thero Is none who is more highly held out side his own state than Governor Campbell; there Is none who commands more respectful attention. At t recent congregation of Republican governors at Marion, Ohio, the three governors who were received by the "senator with the greatest deference were Gov ernor Lowden of Illinois, Governor Sproule of Penn sylvania and Governor Campbell of Arizona. Governor Campbell would be backed in any de mand he might make for legislation by another force which would not be at the command of any other man whom we might put Into the governor's chair, Republican or Democrat tha League of Western States, of which he was one of the organizers and'of which he is at present the head. While there is only one other western state than Arizona California iliat la concerned in the long staple cotton Industry, there Is such a profound understanding among the members of the league, of the needs Of one another, that with Governor Campbell urging the protection of this Industry, he would have the hearty support of every state member of the league. We do not think there is a grower of long staple t otton In this or the Yuma Valley, and in the regions ' about Casa Grande and Tucson, that underestimates by this time, the need of protection of the industry as the greatest, the most imperative of its needs. The last two years our cotton growers enjoyed high prices because of the lack of competition. There was only a slight invasion "by the Egyptian crop in those years and spinners were doubtful whether, or at least, when, they could count upon an available supply. But they are receiving it now. It is constantly arriving and there are hundreds of thousands of bales on the docks at Alexandria awaiting shipment. American manufacturers want it because it Is cheap er by reason of the cheaper labor which produces it Until we have a tariff which will cover the difference between the 'cost of production of Egyptian cotton and American long staple cotton, our cotton will be held to the price of the former. Ho, there is nothing more vital to the growers In this county and state, of long staple cotton than a tariff on cotton. Now, who would bo likely to be rnoro influential in procuring that tariff Governor Campbell or Governor Simms? The cotton growers need not answer that question now. Let them answer it at the polls two weeks from today. To Lawyers We are asking a hypothetical question, rather two of them In one, as will be perceived. Wo want answers only from those learned in the law, and not horso-back opinions based on individual theories of right and wrong. The answers will not be vital. They will only tend to satisfy our curiosity. We will suppo.se that A, H and C are Indicted, tried, convicted and pent to prison for having entered Into a conspiracy to corrupt 1), the corruption taking lie form of bribery or attempted bribery, to refrain from filing a referendum petition "gainst a referred r initiated measure; that after the conviction and in ar -oration of A, H and C fur this crime, it is e-!.i!linlied by the highest court, that the referendum i i 1 1 I riot I ave been invoked acainst this measure; anv action I) it unrorrupti-d mij;l,t l.ae taken, would have t'cf'i futile and of no efroct. We will also U -pose that it l.ad been held and fully estahli.-lied th.it A. I! ,n; I t" . I..i!u-r m'.;:t ha e been their i ...i,n..l i, it ii t . w ere pn:ttd by these circum stances from the commission of the Intended crime. Now, would they be automatically released by the decision that they had failed in spite of their inten tions, to commit a crime? If not, how could they be freed except by an executive act granting them par don? We are offering no prizes for answers, for as we have said, we desire this Information only for the satisfaction of our curiosity and we cannot afford to pay out good money merely for pampering a lively curiosity. The traffio ordinances prescribe a maximum rate of speed, which Is very well so long as It is ob served. But there should also be a minimum rate. More Inconvenience is caused and more frequent col lisions provoked at crossings by those who loaf along the business streets at four or five miles an hour. If people want to drive at such a rate let them go out along the country roads and leave the business thoroughfares to those who have business on them. Where Do We Go From Here? We have Just received from the so-called "Na tional Non-Partisan Political Campaign Committee" of the American Federation of Labor a copy of an article by Sampel Gompers to be printed in the No vember issue of the American Federatlonlst urging members of the federation and voters generally to support Govenor Cox on the ground that he Is the. angel of progress as opposed to Senator Harding, the devil of reaction. v We cannot follow the paper of Mr. Gompers along all Us intricacies but are struck by his reference to what he regards as the slogan of Senator Harding uttered in his speech of acceptance. "Back to Nor malcy," which the labor leader declares to be the slogan of reaction. It appears to us that In our present situation the first thing we need to do is to get our bearings, to ascertain precisely where we are and if we are not where we ought to be, then we can intelligently set out toward a well defined and well-considered des tination. -If we- are already on the right road then it is our plain duty to go ahead and not backward. But if we are in the wrong road further progress will only involve us in greater disaster. The only thing then for us to do is to go back along the trail until we , come to the point at which we diverged from the right road. Then we may make rear progress. Does Mr. Gompers think we are just now where we ought to be? Are we on the right road which we should pursue? And if not, is it his notion that we should strike out blindly to the right or the left, "cutting for trail" in the Uncertain hope that we may find the right road? If Mr. Gompers believes any of these absurd things we do not think the average man of good sense believes them. We are sure that things are not as they ought to be; that they are not as good as they were; that whatever our position might have been, four, six or ten years ago and whatever need of change there may have been at any "of those periods, our position is worse now. That plainly shows that we have been on the wrong road and have already traveled it too far. A great majority of the Ameri can people are not fool enough to go further aldng it. The people favor progress and they do not favor reaction, but they demand that the progress shall be intelligently mad and all of us will cheerfully en dure reaction when it means the going back over a wrong trail which has brought us to the brink of a precipice or to an impassable morass. It has been a curse of the United States for the last twenty-five years, the affliction by theorists, idealists, visionaries and doctrinaires, half baked, loud'nouthed and wild-eyed, clamoring for progress. Ignorant of their whereabouts; paraphrasing Dante: "In this the midway of their political life They found them in a gloomy toad, astray. Gone from their path direct." We now want to get back to some well-known point, upon some solid foundation, to take stock and get our bearings. Then we can set forward with as surance that we are not rushing along in a blind alley. We do not want to follow the direction of these excitable and excited persons some of whom are pointing to this distant landmark, some, to that and some to still another, all widely separated, as lying on the road progress. Let us rather find where we left the road, and then advance. The man who said "Hitch your wagon to a star," was not giving aviators advice as to parking aeroplanes. We must not forget that this land department issue was of purely Democratic origin. If we had good roads all over Arizona, the" In terest on the money that would be kept at home and that which would be brought here, it is said would pay for them and maintain them. Would not that be some Investment? AN INCH Long years ago it was said that an added inch didn't matter much unless it was tacked onto the nose. ' Which, of course, is far from the truth of the matter. An Inch, more or less, often is all the dif ference between life and death, between joy and sor row, and between getting Into West Point and not getting In. Wrhlch brings one around to the war depart ment's military academy inch. It used to be that a would-be West Pointer had to measure 65 inches if he was 18 or over. For the 17-year-old but 64 Inches of height was asked. This, naturally, kept many a Grant and Lee and Pershing out of shoulderstraps. In recent years it dawned upon the general makers that it took more than mere inches to manu facture a war commander gray matter and courage were found more needful. So the bar has been lowered. Secretary Baker slices an Inch off, and candidates may get by with 64 Inches. This is promising. Some day it will 'be decided that mere Inches count no more in an army uniform than in an engineer's overalls, a banker's . cut-away, of a. statesman's frock coat.

OFFICIOUS OFFICIALS Secretary of State Colby has barred from his presence at conferences with newspaper men two representatives of the press at Washington. These men are barred because they accused Colby' of using' the Conferences with the newspaper men as a means of inspiring the press with views of his own. This sounds strange in America, dedicated to democracy, freedom and the right of the humblest citizem to criticize the highest official." It recalls an outworn European offense known as "lese majeste." It rayons of the time when "the king could do no wrong." It is reminiscent of czars and redolent of kaisers. If these newspaper men print untruth about Colby, he has his remedy at law. If they print in decencies or libel or any other thing that oversteps the bounds lawfully set down on the statutes the lemedy is in the courts. The day of "lose majeste'" is done with. Offi cious officials who think otherwise must be taught. The choice of a Republican adminis tration by the voters of the United States means the coming of an era of friendly co-operation and good will on the part of this country toward Mex ico, not intervention and misunder standing, is the direct message which Senator Warren G. Harding, the Re publican nominee for president, au thorized Dr. A. I. Gustetter of Nogales to bring back with him to the citizens of the border states. The massage was entrusted to Dr. Gustetter at a meeting which he had with the coming president in Marion on Tuesday, October 12. It was made in response to an urgent plea that Mexico is the door of opportunity to the commercial interests of the United States but that every effort was being made by Democratic papers and speak era to convince the 100.000 naturalized Mexican citizens of the United States that Republican success meant war in Mexico. Senator Harding was advised of the great interest which Mexico feels in his purpose and tht it is the desire of the west coast, as expressly authorized to be stated to the senator by Gov ernor Borquez of Sonora, that Mexico be given the sympathy and support of the United States so that reciprocal neighborly relations socially and in a business way might be resumed with mutual benefit. The Republican nominee was quick to respond to the. invitation to express his interest in the development and peace of the. sister -republic to the south. He declared his very great sympathy for the country in her effort to rebuild and cave the Dositive as surance that if e!eeti his administra tion could be counted upon to do everything possible to aid in the prog ress of Mexico. Appreciates Obregon The senator remarked, that he had a high appreciation of the statesmanship of President-elect Obregon and of his purpose to lead Mexico forward indus trially and economically. In the course of his remarks, he promised Dr. Gustetter that he would make it plain during his trip through Tennessee and Kentucky, which he was then about to start, that Repub lican success means a policy of frater nal helpfulness in Mexican affairs, not ' intermeddling and irritation. Senator Harding remembered hi promise, for in several speeches in the few days following he referred to the situation 'as' regards Mexico" exactly along the line of the assurance which Ky., when he said: Makes Public Assurance "Many speakers for the Democratic party are telling our countrymen everywhere that Republican success w-as redeemed and the McKinley bill, means war with Mexico.

Its advocates knew it and did not press for a vote. Quay Disgruntled In that fight the iJemocrats were aided and abetted by two eastern Re publicans, and their victory was due in great part to Matthews S. Quay and Don Cameron, senators from the rock ribbed Republican state qZ Pennsyl vania. Quay was to figure greatly in the coming events. He had elected Harrison over great difficulties, and he naturally supposed that he was to be rewarded for his efforts in the manner that politicians are ever rewarded.

Presidential Campaigns' -o- XVIIIs-THE CUEVELAND-HARRI-SON-WEAVER RACE OF 1892 By Frederic J. Hatkin WASHINGTON, D. C.. Oct. 18 The Democratic landslide of 1892 which placed Grover Cleveland for t'-ie second time in the presidential chair marked the failure of the most extraordinary efforts ever made by any party to per petuate itself in power. When the Re publicans came back into their own after the end of the first Cleveland ad ministration, they left no stone un turned, so far as legislation was, con cerned, to make their power absolute and to prevent the possibility of an other Democratic president. The first thing the Republicans did under the Harrison administration was to admit six new states to the Union, thereby subjecting themselves to the charge that they sought to assure their party of twelve additional Republican senators and 20 additional votes in the electoral college. The house of repre sentatives was Republican by a very narrow margin. The Democratic mem bers were unseated by wholesale to give their places to Republican con testants, without regard to the merits of their claims. Then followed the attempt to enact the Force Bill. Its authors and pro ponents called it the Federal Election bill, but it was so odious to the ma jority of the people of both parties that the name applied by the Democrats stuck to its longest. This bill provided that all elections for Federal offices, that is. representatives and presidential electors, should be i.:iccr the direct control of the federal covcrnment. That meant "carpet-bas" returning bayor.e'.s of federal soldiers and pi.-toN of federal deputy marshals, and a "solid south" which would have. been solidly Republican. The fact that the negroes were not permitted to vote freely, or that their votes were not counted, was the principal argument used for the bill, and the only argument which gave the cause a shadow of Justification. Beating the Force Bill The Force bill was passed by the house and went to a Republican senate. There the absolute freedom of unlimited debate gave the Democrats a chance to fight the majority. The Republican senators from the far west were not heartily in sympathy with the Force bill advocates. The western Republi cans had long since ceased to wave the "bloody shirt" in compaigns. and the westerners had not known the bitter ness of armed conflict. The Democrats held caucus after caucus and decided upon their plans with the greatest care. t was a matter of life and death to them, and they knew it. Southern senators of the old "rebel brigadier" type men of culture and polish were assigned, man for man, to pay court to the rougn diamonds of the west who were their colleagues on the other side of that chasm marked by the center aisle of the senate chamber.
