GORDON LEADS Has High Vote in State Assembly for Attorney General. Reports from the Republican State Assembly show tliat Hon. W. B. Gor don lead his opponent by a wide mar gin in the contest for first place on the ballot at the primary election. The vote on the two offices in which local republicans were most interested was es follows: Governor— Benj. Griffith, 673 H; K; rl Cooley, 343 Attorney General—W. B. Gordon, 628; Roy Blackman, 337. At the congressional assembly in Pueblo Hon. Guy U. Hardy, who has so ably represented this district for four years was re-nominated by accla mation. DEMOCRATIC POLICY Different in Each State But Always Ferninst the Government. Denver, Aug 7. —Repudiation of the Wilson policies, particularly that on foreign relations, by members of the former president’s own party is en tailed in the success of James A. Reed in winning the democratic nomination for United States senator in Missouri. During the Wilson administration Reed was a persistent critic and op ponent of the president’s policies, and in the Missouri contest the Wilson re gime was the clcar-cut issue between Reed and his opponent, Breckenridge Long, third assistant secretary of state under Wilson and an ardent champion of his chief. The result shows that the democratic voters of Missouri indorse the stand of Reed. The vote in Missouri is of special interest in Colorado, where leaders of the democratic party are seeking to make Wilson and his policies the chief issue. This attempt, which is in evi dence at most democratic gatherings, was strikingly 3hown during the dem ocratic state assembly in Denver last week when mo3t of the speakers de voted large parts of their speeches to eulogies of the former president and to praise of his foreign policy. Two years ago on the same issue the voters of Colorado, by a majority of more than 60.000, announced their disguest with the extravagance and inefficiency of the democratic admin istration in its management of nation al affairs, and their disapproval of en tangling European cliances. The Mis souri primary election shows that their feelings 3till are shared, not by republicans alone, but by a majority of the democratic voters of that state. War on organized Labor was declar ed in the keynote address before the democratic state assembly in Denver last week, and the democratic organi zation was definitely put on record as repudiating all candidates who receiv ed the indorsement of labor unions. The war on labor was declared in an effort to rid the democratic party of the odium which attached to it after capture of its 3taie ticket by radicals two years ago, and the attitude of democratic leaders was so pronounced that delegates who belonged to labor unions apologized for that connection during the course of seconding speeches for candidates before the as sembly. On the other hand, the republican party does not have to clear itself of a charge of radical control, bemuse the policies of members of the party who occupy state and national offices have made such a charge ridiculous. Also, it does not and never has declared any feeling of antagonism toward union labor; unlike the democratic party, it welcomes into ts ranks union men who believe in its principles of pro tection. With the democratic organization at open war with union labor, and con demning candidates in the party who have the approval of labor organiza tions, and the republican party wel coming into its membership union men | who will support its principles, no | great prophetic gift is necessary io I predict how the vote of organized la bor will be cast in the election thir; fall. With 1,028 delegates, the republican state assembly in Denver this, week will be the largest state assembly in the history of Colorado. Special de corations and a special musical pro gram have been provided- The as sembly will be called to order by George H. Shaw of Fort Collins, re publican state chairman. This is a republican year.

A Good Time to Vote No. What will the citizens of this stato get out of any of proposed state wide >.ax raising measures on the ballot at the coming election? Instead of adopting new measures every state, public official and citizen should work for “less need of revenue” and more value for the dollar expend ed, rather than for more ways to tax the public in order to raise larger and larger sums. Unless the bill is most important ur.d necessity urgent, never was the time better to vote “No” on every ex perimental and tax raising piece of legislation. Demand for State Land Increases. The demand for state school lands shows a steady increase as money for investment becomes more available, ac cording to the State Board of Land Commissioners. While actual sales so far in 1922 arc naturally far below those of two and three years ago, yet the increase over 1921 shows very decidedly the fi nancial condition of the people. Inquiries have increased greatly and monthly sales will probably mark the closing of the year. The next sale will be held at the State Capitol in Denver on August 16th, at which lands located in Jeffer son, Kit Carson, Las Animas and Lo gan counties will be offered at public auction, aggregating 1,600 acres. Shall We Yield to Competitors? “Shall we permit Great Britain to set up on the high seas a notice read ing: ‘British Property; Americans Keep Off’?” said Senator Joseph E. Ransdell, democrat, of Louisiana, in a speech delivered in the Senate, in which he .showed the bitterness of or ganized foreign opposition to the pend ing bill to aid American shipping. “There can be no stronger tribute to the efficacy of the measure which it is proposed to take to aid Ameri can shipping," he said, “than the fact that our chief competitors on the high sens are so strongly opposed to hav ing us adopt those measures Every admonition, every warning, every threat, that comes from foreign sour ces argues the value of the legislation contemplated, from the American standpoint. If we fail to give the as sistance needed to protect our merch ant marine from elimination, we shall he in the position of having yielded to the threats of our competitors.” For its commercial and industrial advantages anti to render effective its naval defense in time of danger the United States must have a merchant marine.

Some time ago the Suez Canal Com pany issued regulations which had the effect of particilly banning American oil tankers from the Canal. Protest on the part of American interests fol lowed speedily, fer if the original reg ulation had been permitted to stand nearly 1,000,000 tons of American tankers would have been barred from the use of the Suez. Thi3 would have applied to the U. S. Shipping Board’3 tankers, privately owned and naval vessels. The Shipping Board got busy. It was suggested by government of ficials in Washington that if the dis crimination were allowed to stand this country would retaliate through its control of the Panama Canal. Did that work ? Rav.-ther! as the British would say. The Suez Company has promised the American Bureau of Shipping that it will change its reg ulations to admit tankers classified by the U. S. organization. In shipping, ns well as in tariff matters, the na tions of Europe are going to find that it will not pay to pick on Uncle' Sam. He can do some retaliating of his own. if he is driven to it. But if the Demo crats were permitted to remove all our levers, or if Democratic control of the government would reestablish the pol icy of surrender which characterized the Wilson regime, we would soon be Ir. a had way. jjl,.
