WHY HE WANTS A CHANGE
Now and then we hear from cer
tain "independent” voices, journalis
tic or individual, that there is no
real differences between the major
parties and the country would be
equally well off under a Republican
or a Democratic administration. If
that be so, it would be gracious and
appropriate service to the public if
your “independent,” who is uniform
ly impartial and judicial in word, and
always partisan in deed, would sup
port the Republican ticket. He nev
er does. He discovers the absence
of all distinction between the parties
only on those occasions when he is
on the loser's side, or fears that he
will be. Then he is filled with a
great and holy zeal to suppress all
Figns of partisan spirit in the oppos
ition. Indeed, in the lexicon of the
"independent" when it is Republican
it is partisan; when it is Democratic
it is non-partisan. The whole theory
and scheme of Democratic partisan
ship is to persuade any other kind
of partisan that he should not sup
port the principles nor the can
didates of the Republican party.
Let the professional independents
and spurious non-partisans go down
south and preach their doctrine there*
Let them begin by helping to break
up the Solid South and thus reduce
the two parties to equal terms, so
that the tremendous handicap to free
party action of ten or eleven states
devoted always to stark partisanship
may be removed. Let it not be al
ways clear that the rise of non-parti
sanship in one section of the country
may not only serve the aims of par
tisanship elsewhere.
it is a significant fact that in the
south there are nine or more states
which in fifty or sixty years have
voted one way only in presidential
years (except under coercion during
the “carpet-bag” era); and it is an
equally significant fact that there is
only a single state north of (he Mas
on and Dixon line which in a half
century has an unbroken record of
voting for one party. This means
that the Republican party stands for
growth, progress, freedom of opin
ion and discussion, new ideas, new
leaders, new light; it means that the
Democratic, party is too much wedded
to old issues, old habits, old thoughts
—all of which spell stagnation and
reaction.
The president of the United States
said once in a public address that
the Republican party had not had a
new idea in fifty years. This shows
the length to which egotism, intoler
ance and pride will go. It was not
true. It was probably not expected
that it would be accepted as literal
truth. It would be interesting to
know just What new idea the Demo
cratic party has fostered, in the last
half century, that had not first had
its origin elsewhere and had not
been sponsored by some element
within the Republican party. This is
not to say that it had always been
adopted by the Republican party. Too
often it has not been, and at times
the failure of the Republican party
to act has been the opportunity of
its enemy. A split among the Re
publicans in 1912, for example, led
to election of President Wilson. A
catch phrase elected him in 1916.
But no Republican division exists in
1920, and the inventors of Demo
cratic slogans have been singularly
unfertile, and everybody knows what
is going to happen in November.
Why is it that the people are so
'heartily and unreservedly renewing
their confidence in the Republican
party? Is it because of the League
of Nations—the league. A league or
no league? It is not. Is it because
: of the “senate oligarchy” or belief
I in its non-existence? It is not. Is
! it because of prohibition? It is not.
1 Is it because of progressivism and its
promises or of reactionism and its
menaces? It 4e not. Is it because of
the tariff? It is not. Is it because of
high taxes and the cost of living?
It is not, wholly. What then is the
reason.
I
The reason the country faces an
impending change, and that a vast
majority of voters m their present
humor propose to make it, is their
complete loss of confidence in the
present national administration and
the Democratic party. Whether or
not four years of Cox means four
more years of Wilson—as Cox prom
ises—the electorate will take no chan
ces. If it means the end of Wilson
ism, and merely the beginning of Cox j
ism, again the voters intend to take
no chances. They have had enough
of the Democratic party for the pres
ent and enough of Wilson for all
time, and they are looking for no
i legatees or crown princes of Wilson
| ism to put in his place. The citizen
may indeed have this or that parti
cular reason for voting against Cox
and for Harding, but behind it all is
his dissatisfaction with the present
I regime, his desire for a change, and
his belief that the Republican party
is better qualified to meet the great
problems which confront the country.

BREAKING AWAY FROM HABIT
Habit, the stern taskmaster, makes women old before their
time. Because of habit, we all do work that could be done as weil
and as cheaply by others.
Many woman have their washing done at home because of
habit the old tradition that it can be done better and more cheaply
than in a modern laundry.
But facts are not in accord with this old belief. The scientific
manner in which clothes are now washed and sterilized in a mod
ern laundry such as ours, not only produces superior work, but
actually saves you money when time, material and fuel are con
sidered.
Every week, more women are deciding that "Sending it to
Jones” is the efficient way—breaking away from the old habit
of home washing, with its attendant backaches, worry and slush,
and now devoting this time to reading, walking, shopping or sew
ing.
