i-esday, July 6, 1920. SAN FRANCISCO RESULT INSURES HARD BATTLE AGAINST REPUBLICANS IF THE Republicans had been choosing a Democratic can didate, they would hare picked them in abont this order: Wilson, HcAdoo, Palmer, Coj. In other words, the easiest to beat as first pick, the hardest to beat as last pick. coz is going to be harder to beat in fflOYember than any of the three others. At the same time, if Cos wins the election, it will be better for the country than if either of the three other Democrats were to be elected. The country is heartily side of WBsenism. The country would take a wholesome pleasure in defeating Wilson or MCAfloo directly, as a sign of protest and reaction against Wilsonism. Palmer would hare felt something of this same antagonism to the Wilson dynasty. But Cor. has not been numbered among the Wilson crew. He has not been noted as specially antagonistic, but cer tainly he has not been in the inner circle. At the San Francisco convention, it became apparent that there was a powerful element bitterly opposed to Wil somsm. This element raffled around Cox from the first It stood firm, and it drew adherents to itself ballot by ballot. The utmost efforts of HcAdoo and Palmer ad herents failed to break the Cox combination, and failed to consolidate the opposition and defeat Coz that way. The victory of Cox in the convention indicates that the Wilson group was really weaker than the anti-Wilson group. The Wilson group had to give way, and the middle-of-the-road men gradually drifted over to the anti-Wilson crowd, until victory hove in sight and the stampede to the band wagon took place. Cox's success is due primarily to the original combina tion of a few big strong states of the north and east in his favor, or rather against the administration. Official and perfunctory loyalty to Wilson and lis pol icies had to give way at last to party expediency. The nnderlvinp sentiment amose the delegates all the tiiTn. must have been less favorable to Wilsonism than the self defence they win bury the hatchet and get to work to win. And it is fair to assume that the Democratic party, emancipated from the Wilson dictatorship, will regain some thing of its old fichtine form, those elements that have long felt themselves out of sympathy with the course of the administration will take new heart, and the party will not find itself entirely on the defensive as would have been the case if the administration had succeeded in forcing its candidate on the party. Republicans everywhere will welcome the call to battle. The old fundamentals will be brought out of storage, pol ished up, and each party will try to rebuild the old tried and tested fabric of noHtical nrindnle and policy that had' been so long hidden away in the dusty attic awaiting the dav of the nation's return to sanity. And the country will be more interested in knowing what Cox stands for. than m re-reading wnat tne aan t ran cisco convention said if stood ror. The San Francisco plat form, so far as it represented the extreme views of the Wilson faction, lost most of its significance when the Wil son faction went down in defeat before the Democrats who earnestly seek a return to old fashioned Democracy. o SCHOOL DA YS Copyright 1S20. bv McCIure Newspaper Syndicate. By D WIG C Sound Labor Planks WBAT PARTY will Sam Gompers fly to now? He went off mad from Chicago and he blew yellow flame after he heard the Glass platform read at Jan xrauosco. i Montreal resolutions were not incorporated in the platform of either party, and indeed there is an implied repudiation in each, saddening to Sam and infuriating to the radical element of organised labor which thinks Sam is a hard VaI TBi4?nn5TV Evidently the two big parties are not flirting with mr,K.m ; -Mar.

Radicalism wouldn't carry the U"a b nbhcans year, ana ine ptuuuau av.. . - - are cosy and satisfies, the Democrats vigorous and hope ful, and they don't either of them see red this year. Mr. Gompers is fairly representative of the conservative majority of the American Federation of Labor, but he has to pay particular attention to the demands of the powerful radical minority to hold his dominant place in the council of the federation. Now both big parties have turned hrm down, and he is glad his own annual convention is over so he won't have to meet the boys face to face and explain how itsappened. The labor planks of the Democratic platform are rather more specific, less Sam Gompersish, more strongly atten tive to the public interest, less yielding to labor extremists, than the Republican planks. The labor politicians, if they mrttt choose at all between the two biz parties, will perhaps ureter to tike their chances with the Republicans, if they radee on platforms purely. Of course the Democrats are opportunists in practice, and platforms do not mean any thing to the party when it comes to running the govern ment; but there is no proof that the Republican platform is not opportunist in the opposite ense, and that the party cmnM Tat h more noakiTe in its labor attitude than its somewhat gelatinous platform plank would indicate. Rad ical laborism is in a pickle. Both parties have now told it to retire and be quiet. But conservative, solid, constructive, patriotic labor unionism will receive great comfort from the platforms of bcU parties, the Democratic even more than the Repub HcK. The majority of organired workmen are patriotic Americans first, partisans next, and labor politicians last. They win vote for America, vote with the party of their choke, anS they win take the same lawful methods of pro gressive reform within their parties as other Americans take. They win be inclined to rejoice that the radical ele ment in their ranks has been rebuked by both of the big would not have given way, but would have stood pat, formed combinations, and wrested a victory irom me ku Wilson or Cox group which seemed in the beginning to have been in the minority. xxrhntnrrr Car's Misonal views mav be. he was picked from the start as the anti-Wflscn standard bearer, and ail that group rallied around Mm. The conviction cannot bs escaped that the anti-wiisen seniuncnt icauy uiuiaita the Democratic party. 1-t.ie , frt that n:k Cox the hardest man for the Republicans to defeat For it had seemed certain that the real issue of the entire campaign was to be Wilsonism versus representative popular government; autocracy ver sus republic. Mow in a measure that issue has been dis posed of by the Democrats refusing to unite behind the Wilson program. The Democrats have chosen as their candidate a man who would not, if elected, follow in Wil son's footsteps. There is another reason why Cox will be a hard man to beat: he is a business man, and win not drive from him the support of the business community. He is a newspaper publisher with long experience in the game, and that means tht he must have a wider sweep of view and scope of , interests and sympathies than the average lawyer, college professor, or professional politician. Cox is a politician all right, but that was not his first love nor Is it his only ma?i of jiveiinooa. Cox's popularity in his own state has been proved by his having been elected three times governor on the Demo cratic ticket in a state that was Republican from the days before the civil war until 1912, with a few exceptions due :o local causes. The principal candidates of both the great parties are from the same state, both are active newspaper men, pub lishers and editors, both have received highest honors from the people of the state, one as governor, the other as sen ator. It wfll be a battle royal in Ohio, and it ought to be a good sporting contest throughout the country next November- ..... ..

The sharper the Hne is drawn, on questions of pontical principle and practice, and on party record, the better the Republicans wfll Kke it. tnn the campaign should mark a return to the old-time contests based on programs aad not on personalities. It is a. sign of good health, politically, in the American nation that this tremendous contest will be shaped up and di rected to a degree somewhat unusual in recent years, by considerations of fundamental political and pubBc principle and policy, rather than by considerations of personal lead ership or personal prejudice. The country is to be congratulated upon the final result at San Francisco, even though the Republicans wdl face a much harder battle than would have been the case if the Wilson dynasty had succeeded in controhng the Democratic party to the end. Wilson has lost Ms hold, and that means that the Demo cratic party itself is emancipated. The Democratic party wfll make a hard fight, even though party unity seems to have been impaired somewhat by the bitterness incident to the hard convention battle. The months that wfll inter vene before the election will give the Democrats time to compose their differences and come together once more. In parties.

UNCLE WIGG1XY AND THE HUMMINGBIRD. mmmmm By nOWAUD B. CAIUS. "T TNCLE WIGGILT, would you mind J going to the store for me?" asked Nurse Jane Fuisy Wuzxy one day, as she saw the bunny rabbit gentleman starting to take a hop with his red. white and blue striped twink led nose. Oh. there I so again! Getting things all muddled up, am I not? I meant Uncle WiggJly had his barber pole rheumatism emten with aim. "What may I have the pleasure of doing for your" he asked Nurse Jane. i wouui luce some quinine puis. "Oh, I'm pleased io meet you," spoke TJnele Wlggily. answered the muskrat lady, "I have a little malaria, asd quinine pills are good to cure it." "I'll get you some," promised Uncle Wlggily. So he hopped to the nine and ten cent store and soon bought a box of quinine pills, which were shaped Just like birds' eggs, only much smaller, of course. On bis way back to the hollow stump bungalow. Uncle Wiggily heard a queer little song being song by some one in a tree near the path. The bunny gentleman looked and saw some fluttering wings and a curious little creature perched on a barncn. "Oh. what a funny bug!" said Mr. Longears. feeling in his pocket to see It tne pills were sale. "I am not a bug if you please." said the voice, as it stopped singing "I am a hummingbird, and though I am very small, and my eggs are very tiny, stui i am a bird ana i num ana sing. I am called a hummingbird because I move my wings so fast that tney nnm like an airsnip. "Oh. I am pleased to meet you," spoke Uncle Wlggily, and then the hummingbird showed him her nest. which was as small as a tiny doll's teacup. In the nest were some tiny eggs. "Why, they're just the size and shape of Nurse Jane's quinine pills." said the bunny, as he looked at the hummingbird's nest. Tes, so they are." the bird sang. "But out of my eggs, small and tiny as they are, will come my dear little birds, when I hatch them. What will come out of Nurse Jane's pills?" "Nothing but a while, bitter pow der." said che bunny "It would puck er Nurse Jane's moulh all ui excepc that the powdfr is inside the pills and she s allocs them whole without chewing ' Well. Uncle Wiggily was just say ing good-bye to the hummingbird, and he was putting the quinine pills back in his pocket, the bunny gentle man was, -n hen. all of a sudden, along came the bad old Hazoopa crashing bis way through the woods. Tm kmurrr howled the Baaoosa. Tm hungry and I want rabbit ear souse and eggs for my lunch! I must ham hnmrninfi-bird's ens. too. as all the other eggs are too targe! Til take some nnnuningDira s eggs: with that the Bazoona reached up. and he was going to pull down the dear, cute little hummingbird's neat. and, taae out tne tiny eggs wn un cle Wlggily suddenly held out his paw. "Are these what you want?" he asked. The Bazoopa looked at what Uncle Wlggily held out. They were little round objects; a half dosen of them. "Ha! Hummingbird's eggs! Just what T want" snickered the bad chap. "But I thought hummingbirds only had three eggs. However, no matter. Ill eat these, and then III take your Bourse. Uncle Wiggily!" With that the bad chap made a grab for the tiny, white, round things on the benny's paw. Into his mouth the Baxoopa popped them. "On, I love hummingbird's eggs!" he cried, and then as he chewed on the things he had taken from Uncle Wiggily, the Bazoopa made a funny face and then he wrinkled up his nose, and he twisted his- ears around, and he cried: "Oh. JiggUy-wohble! Oh what bitter eggs. There mush be something wrong with thecal rve got to go get a dring of water!" Away he rushed. "I thought you wanted my sourse?" said Uncle Wiggily. "BuiT-r-r-rl I should say not now!" howled the Bazoopa. "I don't want anything. My mouth Is too bitter!" ' -What did you give him. Uncle Wlggily, instead of letting him take my eggs?" asked the hummingbird when the bad chap was gone. "I gave htm some of Nurse Jane's by SJS.0O8.0Oe bushels above the aver age for the pre-war neriod. "In response to the government's request to increase the acreage of winter wheat In the fall of 1915 to 4T.2M.Me acres, they actually planted 49.2S1.0M. and the following spring tney pianteo more than xz.soo.se acres of spring wheat, which was up io the record. Certainly we must ap preciate that, under the conditions then existing, with the farmers pro- aueing rooa as tney produced it, they went far toward saving the situation. When the war broke out we owed Europe J5M.0M.0O8. asd I have no doubt that many business men were worried.

"The Grand Canyon of the Colorado river Is the most beautiful sight I ever saw," said Miss Ruth Boseer man, secretary of the county farm bureau. "On my wasr home from California recently I stopsed off at the canyon and spent a few days looking over It. It has all tho wonders the railroad folders ascribe to It. Its deep and changiaj? colors are every- f thing the artists have portrayed cnem to be. its rawty and raysue shapes are all the Indian legends have claimed for them and under all of thV things one can say about it lies that solrnin. silent mystery of the canyon as a whole that seems to look up in disdain at the tiny human visitors who come to it and ask in sarcasm: "Where have you been for the past zo.oot.not years uat you have not seen XE before?" "El Paso has shown marvelous growth since I saw It last, several years ago," said C. F. Kellogg, a visi tor. T am sot surprised, but I am much impressed. I can remember when the sidewalks on San Antonio street were broken boards and mud covered the streets. The city sow has the aonearance of a metropolis. and from Information I have received the building wfll continue. Oppor tunities In El Paso and the southwest generally are great, and El Paso seems to have taken advantage of them so far.
