Wilson and Cox, Minority Voto Win
1., ntn In Only Two Presidential Con-
tests Which Republicans Have Lost
, Since 1860.
(Special Dispatch)
Coltitnhus, Ohio, Aug. 18. The solid,
'Bcpcndnble strength of the Republican
(wrrtjr In Ohio Is strlklnRly shown In
n analysis hy counties of tho offlclul
returns of the three elections since

Examined In connection with the
results of the different elections, im-

-Bcrutlny shows that the Democrats
, can nt best lay claim nt this time to
lew than i dozen of tho eighty-eight
l counties of the state for tho 11)20

tlonoily by Cleveland.

That Republicanism Is a habit with
1 ' Ohlo is likewise shown by its be-
ImTlour ln the various guberatorlal
' elections sdnco 1S(50. Of the twenty-
nine elections fr governor In this
' sixty-year period, the Republicans
1 haTe carried an oven twenty. The
j 'Democrats have carried the state but
Dine times for governor.
Cox's Victories Mere "Rain Checks."
It is because three of these hap-
.pened to come to James M. Cox that
tio hasjieen chosen as- the Democratic
' rnonilnee this year. People outside of
Ohio did not and do not realize that
all three Oox victories wore mere
"ruin cheeks"; that witli normal Re
publican conditions ho woidd never
ItnTe won in a single oue of jthoso
' i -contests.
Cox Never Palled 50 Per Cent Vote.
' Oox has been touted as a vote-get
ter but tlie facts lo not support the
s claim. Cox's first vsucress, that of
1012, was due like vfilVi's to the
Progressive dlx'.sJou. of-Mie Republi
can ranks. ox was defeated on his
record whet ho came up for reelection
in 101-1. Itl 1010 the Wilson "He kept
us out of war" slogan pulled him
through by n plurality of G0U5, and In
, 1018 Cox was barely able to escape
i defeat by a last-moment defection of
a uormally .Republican, county.
Tlie extent to which tho Democrats
huve exaggerated the vote-getting roc-
! .- wd of Candidate Cox is shown by tho
fact thnt in none of the four election
In which Cox lias run for governor of
" Ohio has he been able to ikjII half of
the total vote of the suite.
50 Counties Always Republican.
On the other hand the nnalysIIT of
lite recorded statistics of the elections
by counties show that there are fifty
., counties which hare been carried three
times running by the Republicans
since 1912. This applies to the elec
tions of 1014, 1910 and 1018.
In nifdltion there are eight counties
which the Republicans have curried
two times out of three. One of tlieMj
counties, Hamilton, was lost In 1018
i on account of n political mix-up with-
i In Republican ranks, while the other
seven temporarily went Into the Dem-
eoratlc column in 1010 when the "He
kept us out of wnr" sloguu was doing
its insidious work. These counties ie
tamed to tho Republican column at
the uezt election in 1018.
There are 13 counties which have
been carried once by the Republicans
nnd twice by tho Democrats since 1012.
Two of these counties which were car
ried by Cox In 1914 and 1010 left him
In 1018.
This accounts for 71 of the 88 coun-
i lieu of Ohio, leaving Just 17 which
were carried by Oox on account of one
fortuitous circumstance or another, In
I1SH, 191(1 and 1018. While a number
ot these counties havo been Democrat
ic, none are conceded to Cox In 1920.
Harding Carried 71 Counties In 1914
It fo significant thnt the number 71,
wlrtch represents tho counties which
have been carried by tlie Republicans
at otw or more elections since 1012,
ropreseutB also tho number of counties
wurled by Senator Warren G. Harding
wljen elected United States benator in
Mfw II is through the strength displayed
hy Senator Harding In that contest
thnt tlie true line is to be had on what
wUl happen in Ohio on November 2.
While Cox lost tlie race for governor
)n tills election by 20.27Q, Hnrdlng
wrcpt the state with n plurality of
102,5173. Rut Harding's plurality, largo
M It was, was held down by tho fact
that the Progressives also had a tick
et, headed by Garford, a splendid man
nu1 a vote-getter, who polled a vote
at 07,500 votes.
In this election nardlng carried 71
cwmtles, while Hogan, his Democratic
opponent, carried 17, making n total
of 83. Cox carried but 20 counties.
! Had the Garford votes gone to Hur-
dlug, Harding would have had eight
additional counties, or a total of 70, of
tlw 88 counties of tho stnto, leaving
1 only 0 to the Democrats.
t 1'he election returns nlso show that
O'ox is a weak Democrat, inasmuch as
lilx nluialltlea do not Login to compare
attendance record in the
United SUitcs Senate is with
out a parallel during his term
of office if not in the history
of the government.
Senator Smoot has occupied
his scat in the Senate for a lit
tle more than seventeen years.
In that time he has been ab
sent from the Senate just thir
teen days. "
It has been through his un
tiring efforts, his unflagging
attendance in the Senate
chamber and his aggressive
ness in watching over the ex
penditures of the government
that Senator Smoot has won
the title of "Watchdog of the
with those of Rryan in the counties
which went Democratic In the prslden
tial race of 1008. The voto In the rural
counties shows nlso that Cox Is far
from being strong with the farmers.
These facts clearly indicate that
Ohio's vote would normally go to Sen
ator Harding. That It will go to him
Is evidenced even more by his great
pergonal popularity and the constantly
increasing strength of his candidacy
among tlie people of his native state.
It may yet be necessary to Invoke
the League of Nations to restore peace
between Governor Cox and his cam
paign manager, George White.
Mr. White's. Interpretative comments
on the Democratic candidate's attitude
toward the league have now renched
the point where Governor Cox has felt
It necessary to serve blunt wnrnlng on
the chairman of the Democratic na
tional committee to talk less and saw
more wood. In plain terms, Governor
Cox has rebuked the national chair
man and told him to mind his own
The Clevelnnd Plain Dealer, one of
the leading Democratic organs la Ohio,
administered the rebuke In a recent Is
sue and It Is not tho less pointed be
cause yf the camouflage with which
It Is Mirrounded. It all came about
through Mr. White's .statement that
the League of Nations wbuld not be
the predominant Issue in the campaign.
Stung by the wide publicity given the
White stnteinent and the resentment
it awakened In the brensts of flic loyal
Wilson following, tlie Plain Dealer was
commissioner to administer the public
rebuke to White. It Is sufficient to
say that the stinging call-down of the
national chairman would not have ap
peared In a Democratic organ under a
Dayton headline, nor have been writ
ten by W. C. Howells, Journalist of
wide repute, lind Its publication not
been authorized from headquarters.
After saying that Mr. White's state
ments of Mr. Cox's policy "have
aroused considerable comment liere,"
Mr. Howells continues:
"Those In closest touch with Gov
James M. Cox, the Democratic nom
inee, are of the opinion that the re
ports cniieeriilui; Whites' utterances
are misrepresenting, and arc further
of the opinion that any statements of
that tenor attributed to the national
chairman were not authorized by the

no disposition, It Is said, to burden the
