T. rwas this message which urged a "ter mination ox nostmties and the dis bandment of Gen. Wrangel's troops on the basis of amnesty being granted.

This theme enables the governor to define in elementary terms- why he regards Harding as a reactionary and himself as a progressive. Tired of Industrial Troubles. The Ohio governor talked about the new constitution in Ohio and how the poor man used to be denied jus tice and how injured workmen were unable to get compensation through the courts. He told how Harding fought the adoption of the new con stitution and how he. Gov Cox. won the fight in a referendum by an over whelming majority Then he dis cussed his own methods of dealing with industrial troubles and declared proudly that he had not cast a single soldier Into a labor controversy, that the state militia had not fired a single shot nor pointed a single bay onet to settle a strike. And when the governor asked his audience to inquire of any employer in Ohio if property had been preserved or any employe If that state had done him violence or any Justice of the sn- reme court if toe majesty of tbe lw had been upheld there were real cheers.
