POLITICAL GOSSIP Topeka, Kansas, Oct. 24. There is a general complaint at both Demo crat and Republican state headquar ters that the voters are too reserved. Persons actfve in campaign affairs would be a lot happier if the voters put on a little war paint and occasion ally set fire to a meeting house or threatened to lynch a few candidates on the opposition ticket. It would prevent the present pending necessity of buying alarm clocks for a good many people who seemingly don't know whether November 7th is elec tion day or the birthday anniversary of an ancient Fiji king. Party scouts are coming into To peka every few days with reports of :good meetings. It seems that a lot of men and women have cancelled , , , . u through a political meeting where they can spend the evening fori il- r-r x- x j 1.!uute an ace In me noie when iiutmng. inese meetings teiiu to cheer the candidates. In fact the average candidate becomes a genius at the job of collecting encourage ment. If he could trade his vision of sunshine for votes on election day an injunction couldn't stop his race for the presidency. Some of the vet erans of many campaigns know these things and the old timers are not so certain about the big crowds and maximum collection of silence. Fact of the matter is neither party has gathered a very close line on the .situation. The Republicans with their overwhelming majority in nor mal years expect to win easily. This "brutal majority," as the Democrats call it, is considered sufficient to more than safeguard against some of the strange and rather uncertain cur rents encountered in the campaign. On the other hand the Democrats with customary pre-election optimism believe that somehow, someway, their ticket will win. Their headquarters live on the child-like faith that some miracle will befall in the campaign and that the morning after election the state will awake to see the Demo crats take over the state house, ooooo In the old days a Mort Albaugh or a Bill Sapp had a pretty accurate poll book for every precinct in the state at this stage of a campaign. But it isn't done that way any more. It is probable that both parties will go through the campaign without any thing more definite than a few dozen individual opinions as to what a cer tain community will do. A lot of lit erature will be put in the mails dur ing the next two weeks. Steno graphers and press agents will tear the keys off frantic appeals. their typewriters in : But thfr won't i much of the old time care in selec tion of soil on which to sow seeds, ooooo Republicans will have all the ad vantage in the matter of reaching the voters. The big element of pub licity is strongly with the G. O. P. The Republican press in Kansas can talk to more voters in a day than the Democrat orators can assemble in the course of an entire campaign. ooooo In spite of all, though, the voters are not whooping it up for anyone in particular. Maybe it means they haven't entirely settled the matter in their own minds. Maybe they are going along in the even and easy ways of the day and will vote their party ticket as usual. Maybe there is something away back jn their minds that is giving trouble and con- cern. Maybe it will all come out on I ciate the advantages of treating with election day. Maybe the Democrat an experienced doctor, dreaming of dreams has come to the j These professional visits, as ptan time when dreams come true. ned throughout this and other states, 00000 j afford those interested an opportunity Most of the political conversation to consuit an experienced specialist these days seems to be among the f el-1 ciose to their homes. Married ladies lows who haven't been particularly : must come with ,their husbands, and occupied at any actual revenue pro ducing task in recent months. That is the conversation of the man who is fighting the industrial court. Most of these chaps went into the Repub lican primaries two 'years ago and voted for George B. Snow. In Nov ember they voted for Davis in their effort to beat Allen. They will vote for Davis again, this year hoping to beat Morgan. Allen won over Davis two years ago by 105,000. Clearly Davis must pick up more than anti court support to make even a credit able showing this year, ooooo The tax league has apparently blown so far as. being a determining factor in the election. Both parties have declared for tax reduction. And it seems that few Republicans will bolt the ticket because of a carbon copy platform pledge by the minority party. ooooo Democrats look for material help from two other sources. One is the Ku Klux Klan. The other is the Non partisan League. The league which came down from North Dakota is ex pected to join with the Klan which came up from the south and help make Kansas safe for the Democrat ticket. Two years ago the league gave Davis everything in its bag. It will do it again this year. In fact the league and the state federation of labor are so closely identified that both send authorized representatives; to so-called labor-farmer conferences, ooooo The Ku Klux Klan is the new ele ment in state politics. In at least a dozen legislative districts it is as serting a positive interest. The course which it will take in the November election so far as the state ticket is concerned is not openly defined. Gov- . x, f , , , . ernor Allen, though, has declared war on the Klan in Kansas, And with Allen out on the stump for Morgan and against the Klan the problem i rather solves itself. , ooooo That is the somewhat -oicturesoue situation with the electron just around the corner. The Democrats are hop- ' ing that with the radical labor, ele- ment, the Nonpartisan League, the i Ku Klux Klan and a-natural reaction i irom tne Harding landslide of two . , ., . . the showdown comes. As for the Repub licans their faith is eternal in their big party majority, publicity elements and a confidence in their ability to match the conservative vote against the radical. . ooooo It would be so much better, though J if the voters would only talk a little I even for the other" fellow. It would ! at least develop some open fighting! , -1.1.14. r 6 6i aim ijcijiiit, m, jcasi a xair guess as to actual conditions. If There Had Been No War.
