Governor Cox, Democracy's "Choice
To Meet Senator Harding.
The Sun and New York Herald J
(Rep.) says: ; ]
James M. Cox, nominated for <
President by the Democrats, has been 1
a celebrity in Ohic ever since he \
captured there a Republican Congress
district.-In his subsequent achieve- (
ment of winning the Governorship of j
Ohio three times, with one defeat, his .
fame has assumed respectable propor ,
tions in tne iviiaaie west. in wie
long drawn out, stubbornly contested
and bitterly punctuated San Francisco
convention he has become well
known to the people of the United
States. And the way he has been
projected before the eye and mind of
the national public is well worth considering
from the point of view of
both what counts for strength and
what counts for weakness. I
The nomination of Governor Cox
is intended, for one thing, to make
of Ohio, with two of her sons heading c
the opposing tickets, the Chateau c
Thierry of our national campaign of t
1920. The deeper and more cunning t
purpose oi nis bacKers trom tne very
first, however, was to drive a wedge j -]
into strong Republican territory ofjv
the East which is supposed to have a c
desire to modify drastic prohibition. v
But there is more than a possibility,' n
there is a strong probability, that
.this strategy of the particular Demo-'
crats responsible for the Cox nomination
may break down and break down badly
here in the East, as it almost g
certainly will in the nation.
Governor Cox^ was the original p(
choice of the preeminent machine
Jbosses like Murphy of New York, Nu- g
gent Of New Jersey, Taggart of In- t
diana and Brewaii ol Illinois. These L
>> professional bosses, these verjf ai
who under no circumstances would1^
'permit the nomination of McAdoo or g(
Palmer, are repugnant*to the rank ^
and file of their party outside of their ^
own States. They centred upon Cox, rp
and no secret was made of it, because ^
they expected he would come out in ^
the open for a wet platform, a wet ^
campaign, i'ld, in the even;, of his
election, a wet administrative and
But, whether because he was dis,
turbed that his candidacy should be ^
promoted in the convention by those
bosses disliked in their own general
party, or whether he grew faint
hearted on the liquor issue itself, Cox
would not permit the Murphys and
Nugents and Taggarts to blazon bold- ^
ly on his convention banners the wet
coat of arms.
In their disappointment with Cox's ai
trimming on what to them was the a!
one issue, they made no attempt to
mask their willingness, if a more courageous
candidate would be developed ^
to throw Cox overboard into the deep- ^
est and coldest water they could find ^
But, whether they could not unearth N
a wet candidate with no less strength ^
but with more nerve than Cox, or ^
whether they finally reacnetl a secret ^
mdcrstanding with him, the fact re- T
nains that after looking over all the
ther positive and potential candilates
they stuck to Cox through thick P'
tnd thin. Through all ine weary "
lays of balloting his solid ranks con- oJ
inued to be delegates from wet com- s<
nunities. Their dogged, unbending
aptair.s continued to be those bosses
)f unsavory political macnines. j
What William Jennings Bryan ^
md ether important convention fig- j,
Ares thought and said about that sit- .
aation is what millions of American
;oters in as well as out of the Demo- tl
natic party are going to think and d
ok/"vn+ if AHVinii<rTi t.Vio Hnvernor d
yf Ohio was flirting with Bryan, the g
rreat Commoner thought and said t<
:hat Cox was the disguised candidate b
the liquor element trying to pussy-'
foot support out of dry delegates.
Now, the American people never
like a candidate who .will not stand
straight up on his two feet for or v
against any national question. Gov- S
jrnor Cox, since San Francisco, is
under the mistrust of both the drys n
ind the wets; for if the general public ?
:annot abide* a straddler the wets will 2
not trust a quitter. After the early s'
ivet intrigue and the later conven- 11
;ion triumph of the professional
sosses who stamped out McAdoo and
Palmer to thrust Cox into the nomi- ^
nation, it is doubtful whether Cox ^
:ould gain the confidence of the drys ^
?">" ?iri+Vi o flat /fooloratinn aoroinct ^
^V vJl vt uu u iiui uvviuiuvivit
any wet policy. But by nis dodging ^
the issue to placate the bone drys ^
Governor Cox also is in danger of ^
earning the scorn of the wet public ^
as he earned for a time tne wrath J"
jf the wet Muprhys, Nugents and I
As we survey the equivocal position L
in which Governor Cox left by the V
circumstances of his nomination we
have po doubt that he would be far
better off to show himself to the
whole nation either as wet as the wa
ter of the river or as dry as the hun- L
When all is said and done, however
Governor Cox may be expected to put
into this contest both speed and *"
power. He has shown himself a hard 5
campaigner and a good vote-getter,
[t is no ordinary office seeker who
can win and hold a Republican seat
in Congress and win thrice over the
Governorship of a leading State
which is normally, traditionally and 4
famously Republican. It Is no ordinary
administrator who can conduct
;he business affairs of that American
;ommonwealth term after term to the
satisfaction of iti taxpayers and vot-J
;rs. It is no ordinary citizen and
nan who, whether through the handi-| L
.vork of the wet bosses or wnatever|
:ause,' can get himself accepted by!
>ne of the two great political parties
o be its candidate for President of
he United States.
Nevertheless, it is the judgment of| ?
rhe Sun a^d New York Herald that| ^
vhile the contest is going to be a hot
me, a fierce one, Senator Harding
vill prove himself, in Ohio as in the
lation, the victor at the polls. J
