Senator Kins; won' by 25.000 majority in 1016 and is still quite popular. in the state, but a peculiar combination of cir cumstances may turn the tables on him this autumn. For one thing the i!or 111011s have made up their minds that it U iiot a good thins for Utah to be repre sented in the United States senate by two Mormons. Hotli Senators King and Smoot are members of the. Mormon vhurch. - ' , Even before the primaries and conven tion which gave, Ernest Bamberger the Republican nomination, a well-defined movement 'developed anions the Mormons that it would be a ftrnwl idea to divide the senatorial representative very much as has been the case for years with the governorship and the mayoralty. With lew exceptions the mayor of Salt Lake City ha been a non-Mormon and the governor has been a Mormon. Recently Simon Kamlx'rRer. a Democrat and an uncle .of the Republican nominee for the United States senate, served a term as governor, but it was his immense popu larity which broke the rule of electing Mormons to that office. Ernest Bamberger is a member of a Jewish family of distinction which lias had a great deal to do with the upbuild ing of Utah. If elected to the senate he will be the first Jew to sit "in the senate since the death of Isadore Raynor, sena tor from Maryland. Party Hut lion Caused. To the extent that Ernest Bamberger was a non-Mormon, his qualifications for the Republican nomination were not dis puted, but it is a fact that his selection caused a ruction in the Republican party. Others sought the nomination who were thought more deserving from a party viewpoint. Mr. Bamberger as Republican county commissioner had opiortunity to build up a good organ ization. It wasn't so much any objec tion to Bamberger as to the group of Re publicans who steam rollered the conven tion and caused ill-feeling. Fortunately for the Republican outlook the other fac tion of Hie party which didn't believe in machine politics had the chance iu the primaries for legislative ticket to admin ister a good drubbing to the other wing and there is more harmonious feeling now than 00 days ago when Republicans were openly saying they would vote the Democratic ticket. But if friction devel oped in "the direction of a Republican nominee, it was no less pronounced in the case of the Democratic parry. lie fore Senator King got back from Wash ington there was all sorts of talk of selecting somebody else, but when the senator with his powers of oratory and persuasion got on the job, he just stam-ix-detf the convention. Senator Smoot, Republican, is a big factor, in the campaign. From his ac tivity,, one would think he is running, too. Ho is' more popular today than he ever lias been since he went to the sen ate many years ago. For one thing, as a lue.nber of the all powerful " senate finance committee, he saw that Utah's interest in the Fordney-McCmnber tariff law was well protected. lie has the con fidence of the business clement and the resiicct of the entire Mormon iwumlation. lie is known in Utah as a hard worker and sis one who rarely fails to answer at once the letters of his constituents. Smoot Supports Bamberger. Mr. Smoot is aware of his strength and is capitalizing it to the advantage of Ernest Bamberger, lie is saying, for in stance, "If you approve of what I have done in the senate, give me a vote of con fidence bv sending to the senate a man to vote as 1 do, for the best interests of Utah. etc.. etc." This plea will have considerable effect. Mr.-. Smoot -it -promising to -use bj hi;? in Hue lice with the Republican leadership 10 get Mr. Bamberger a place 011 an im portant committee. All this counts in a state like Ctah. Basically, however, po litical -onditions here are very much the same as in other western states. Busi ness is better than it was. and the Hard ins; adini nist r:i t ion lists n.t !ine itnv- I " ..... ....j ' thing decisive to make it popular or un- MipuIar. -Mr. Harding s veto of the Imiiuis won him many friends in Salt hake City, the dominant business center of the state. It is looked upon here as t lie best act of his administration. Senator King is jt remarkably good campaigner and v. ill ma nave to" empha size Republican sins of omission jiml commission, lie hasn't the advantage of J the wave of Wilsonism which in 1 ! 1 1 1 '. Helped the senatorial candidates all along the line. The Democratic state tickei this year isn't a particularly strong one. If Mr. King wins, it will be due solely to his own efforts, for he has behind "him little or no momentum of party, nothing but a sizeable personal following. As the situation looks today, his opNnent is gaining steadily and the Democrats may lose a seat in the senate.

They are Winfred Conlin of Windsor. Vt., Florence Mathewson ot Attleboro, Mass., and Mary l'runier of Claremont. Mrs. Kate Washburn. presidentVf the hospital committee, admitted that At torney Jesse Barton of Newport asked for a hearing for the nurses that left, which she refused, stating that the nurses must have their say with Mrs. Mae Thomas the superintendent of the. hos pital. The nurses insist upon a hearing be fore the hospital board instead of the su-M-rintendent for they feel they would get but a short way with a hearing before her. They have their many complaints to make that are not generally known and feel that they would not be turned down without a word on their side. . Denying the walkout nurses an op: port unity to be heard in the matter has Caused comment among those interested in the hospital, and it is believed that they should be allowed to present their side to the directors instead of the super intendent. They feel many new things might be brought out that are not gen erally known.
