II PARTY MUCH SPLIT INJMLAI Republicans .Will Not Sup port Radicalism of Sen ator France COT NOMINATION BY PRIMARY VOTE No Parly Choice Indicated Expected XV. V. Bruce. Democrat, Will (iet Elec tion Some Reaction Against Harding Administration Shown In State. Ky DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special ''Despatch to The Reformer.) Copyright 1022. -P.ALTIMORE, Md., Oct. 31. Mary land is another one of those states where the, outcome of Jhe election for United States senator "will have about as much party significance as the result in Iowa or Wisconsin. The Republican nominee here, Senator Joseph Irwin France, is no more representative of the Republican party as a whole than is IJrookhart in Iowa or LaFollette in Wis consin. Fortunately for the opposition to Mr. France this is normally a Democratic state and about the only way for a Re publican ever to triumph is to assure himself of a solid Republican support and a divided Democracy. This year it's just the other way round. W. Ca bell I iruce has the whole-hearted Demo cratic support and will receive thousands if votes from regular Republicans who cannot bring themselves to support Mr. France because of his radicalism. Mr. Bruce should, therefore, win with out difficulty. The size of his majority however, depends largely on how many Democratic radical votes he will take from Mr. France. For while the issue here is not entirely that between an ultra-conservative and a radical, there are some Democrats of the radical fringe who prefer Senator France to Mr. Bruce.

J IcxuM Pill Small Dose Small Pricel cratic bolters to outnumber the Repub lican insurgents who will combine with the regular Democratic vote. The coun try districts usually give a Republican a fair-sized lead and then the city of Baltimore, which is strongly. Demo cratic, overcomes the majority secured elsewhere in the stare. The estimates this year would seem to indicate that Senator France will come to the Balti more line either even with his opponent or a little behind. Senator France will get a heavy vote in Baltimore in the districts where foreign-born or their children are voting. Mr. France has made a special ajjpeal to this class of voter. But the business and professional men and their wives who will vote in Baltimore and who are normally Repub lican will tend to offset the Democratic desertions and the inevitable result should be a Democratic victory by a vote of r.t least 10.000. The Republican registration is much smaller than usual. The Democrats have a registered vote of about 31.000 more than the Republicans. The reason for this is partly the lack of Republi can organization and to a large extent tbe deep-seated opposition to Senator France as a representative of Republi canism. The regular Republican con tributors have been indifferent about Mr. France's campaign. Many of those who supported John W. Garret in the Republican primary race for United States senator will throw their support to Mr. Bruce. France Working Government. Senator France is making an unusual campaign. He is flooding the state with literature, most of whicli is senf out from Washington under his free mail ing privilege as a United States senator. Tons and tons of government books and pamphlets and circulars on cooking and what not are being sent by mail to the individual voters. Mr. France is count ing a good deal on the effect of this kind of salesmanship. But for the-1 most part he is confident that the state's wet vote will help him. This is a wet state in the sense that Baltimore, which is the most populous part of it, is rather moist in its inclinations. The Democratic strength has always been its wetness. Mr. Bruce, who is bv no means bone dry, should be able, however, to retain the wet vote of the Democratic party despite Mr. France's championship of the wet cause. Senator France is said to believe that this is merely his pre liminary fight and that some day he is j destined to make the race for the presi dency on the repeal of the lMh amend ment. No Party Unes. So far a party lines go, there is no such thing in the campaign of Senator France. lie favors about everything that any group of voters, foreign-born or American-born, seem to want. His friendship for Sovietism is naturally held against him by the conservatives and altogether he has about as much business running on the Republican ticket, considering what that means tra ditionally, as Mr. Brookhart of Iowa or the Non-Partisan leaguers of North Dakota Mr. France is another exhibit of what the primary system can do when the political organizations sit indiffer ently by and let their party machinery be taken over, bootstraps and all, by Mnooth-voieed orators with political leg- I erdemain. ! There is incidentally a reaction here i .igainst the Harding Administration. The President swept this state by more than r0.MH. Last year the Democrats turned the tidal wave the other way and won nearly four-fifths of the legislature. If the vote for Mr. Bruce should be higher than 10,000 it will be unquestioned evi dence also of a change of mind on tbe !part of many Democrats who made a 11)20 excursion into the Republican party. Otherwise the result would seem to be explained almost entirely on the ground that -the Republican candidate lost the united support of his party.
