IIS OF WALSH STAKED AT POLLS OF MONTANA PRIMARY Republican Contest May Raise Up Opponent to Beat Sen ator; Wet Issue Up ' Helena, Mont., July 12.—What amounts in large measure to a test in volving the return* of Thomas J. Walsh, Democrat, to the United States senate or his relegation tp private life is under way in Montana today. Tlie state's electorate is going to the polls in a primary election in which Walsh is sure to be renominated on the Democratic ticket, for he is un opposed in his party, just as Congress man Scott Leavitt is unopposed for renomination on the Republ lean ticket In the eastern congressional district, which is more than 20,000 Republican. This year Walsh may meet strong opposition, however, as one Repub lican strong in equipment for serving the public and another notable chiefly for political adroitness and some pop ularity are contending for the nom ination that will pit one of them against Walsh in the fall election. As Montana is heavily Republican, this might make a difference in the po litical fortunes of Walsh at this time, if the Republicans can unite, faction alism heretofore playing a part in the success of Walsh. One to Every 44 Voters Because of this fact, chief interest in the primary centered in the con test between Albert J. Galen, associate judge of the supreme court, and O. H. P. (“One Horse Power”) Shelley, Red Lodge weekly publisher, for the Re publican nomination for senator. With nearly 5,000 aspirants in the various state and county contests, the situation signifies one selection to every 44 qualified voters. This is due to the fact that only 220,624 voters registered in the state’s 1,493 pre cincts. Prohibition Issue F aland Prohibition is playing a part in the Republican primary. It is the issue raised by Shelley, who formerly was federal enforcer for the state, but who retired after a scandal had been aired in the state courts in 1922, in which it was revealed that confiscated bonded liquor had, in some manner, found its way into preferred drug stores over thejßtate and was being sold on a big scale instead of being destroyed. Shelley was able to com bat the revelations, but had to retire from his job. As Montana was strong ly wet after a trial of state and na tional prohibition which it has since repealed once and refused to reenact on a second referendum, the revela tions hurt no reputations, in fact were hailed by many as a slick way around the law. Anyhow, whatever course the wet sentiment of the state will take, it is regarded as inuring to the benefit of Shelley. Machine Backs Galen Galen has the backing of the party organization, as evidenced by an en dorsement by the state central com mittee. He also is expected to re ceive support from many of his fel low veterans of the World war on his record in the Siberian expedition, and to profit by the several campaigns that elected him attorney general in 1904 and 1908 and associate judge of the supreme court in 1990 and in 1926. He has not made a personal cam paign. Shelley, on the other hand, has traveled considerably, made a number of speeches and issued some state ments. His challenge to Judge Galen to express his views on the liquor question and to discuss foreign rela tions and other matters have had no response, Shelley is no tyro in pol itics. The political coup some years ago whioh resulted in his election as national committeeman and his ap pointment as Montana’s first prohibi tion administrator was the state's first introduction to him. In recent years he has published a weekly paper at Red Lodge and has spent much time at Washington on various matters. There he made the acquaintance and aroused the interest of such men as Senators Brookhart, Frazier and Nor beck, whose statements regarding him and his opponent have been circulated throughout the state. Bonne Decision Attacked Galen’s support from the vetreans is not unanimous. From Shelley’s section of the state there has origin ated an attack on the justice because of his authorship of the opinion, sev eral years ago, that declared the state bonus act unconstitutional. The court was unanimous in the decision. During the past week, Galen in his first public utterances since his nom ination statement, sent a message to labor in which he gave it as his view that “laboring men are justified in uniting for their own advancement and protection.” He urged tariff protection for Montana industries “so as to permit employment of Ameri can citizens and discourage the im portation of cheap alien labor.” Wet lane Among Democrats The prohibition question, on which Shelley failed to draw Galen out, is an issue on which the youthful Joseph P. Monaghan of Butte bases his cam paign against the veteran Congress man John M. Evans for the Demo cratic nomination in the western dis trict, which Is strongly Democratic. His slogan also recalls his advocacy of labor legislation as a * member of the last state assembly. This is the only congressional contest. Mark D. Fitzgerald, Btevensville dairy stock breeder, is unopposed for the Republican nomination in the western district, where the normal Democratic majority defeated him two years ago. Former Congressman Tom Stout, Lewistown publisher, is unop posed in the eastern district for. the Democratic nomination. The most interesting state race is among the nine candidates tor the Republican nomination for railroad commissioner. Leonard C. Young, seeking reelection, is campaigning not only against the long list of aspirants but against the antagonism of other members of the commission and its large staff. Justice John A. Matthews is unopposed for the Democratic nom ination to succeed himself on the state supreme court bench but five Re publicans seek to carry the banner of their party.
