Nasty Stories Are Circulated
About Both The Candidates; None Is
Worthy Of Credence, Says Lawrence
Most people have an idea that, as
gossips, women are the worst of
fenders, but anyone who spends sev
eral days In Ohio studying the presi
dential campaign roust be convinced
that the male of the species is more
deadly than the female. For campaign
whiskers and lies have begun their
insidious Journey to the minds of the
voters outside of Ohio. The private
hves of senator Harding and Gov. Cox
have been thoroughly canvassed and
the trails of slander which played so
prominent a part in the undercurrents
of the 1918 campaign have bean
started afreeh with respect to both
presidential candidates
The trouble is that the people who
have lived for years in the towns or
cities with their respective candidates
and whose minds are colored by
grievances and prejudices and some
times by imaginative powers not con
fined to politics have given free rajn
to their tongues w
This, perhaps, is the most distaste
ful phase of the presidential cam
paign and, were It not for the fact
i hat it is playing already so promi
nent a part in the word of mouth
propaganda of the campaign. It could
be ignored.
Usual Charges Hade.
Many people who could otherwise
judge the candidates on what they say
in print or by what is said about them
in newspapers may be swayed in their
judgment by the poisonous stories,
and not one of them, with all respect
to senator Harding or Gov. Cox. has
anything more to do with the Quali

the United States than the private

lives of the voters who wlU do the
voting next November. It Is not nec
essary to describe even the nature or
tlwse stories. Let It suffice to say
that everything that has ever been
charged against persons in public uie
Is being said about Harding and Cox.
Not satisfied to inquire Into the do
mestic relations of each of the candi
dates, the talemongers have even gone
back & generation or two, and in one
instance nearly 100 years, to resurrect
skeletons of moral laxity.
Anyone who listens carefully to the
stories told by both sides cannot but
be Impressed with the facts that the
circumstances in the case afford ab
solutely no index to character. The
trouble is that party workers have an
idea this is the thing that makes
votes and. while on the subject of
party workers, the writer has seen
enough and heard enough to become
convinced that the Democrats and
Republicans and the wards and pre
cincts where this propaganda Is being
peddled are equally culpable.
Somehow It appears to a disinter
ested observer as if the national and
state managers could put a stop to
this sort of thing, which Is as de
grading as it is politically popular.
There are plenty of faults m the poli
cies and promises of Harding and Cox
for the vojer to determine which man
is better able to manage the public
business of this country for four long
and uninterrupted years.
Chivalry Seems Lacking.
Some politicians in Ohio haven't
given a very good example of political
chivalry at least the .party workers
If the newspapermen who are, for
the time being, with senator Harding
or those who are with Gov. Cox were
to confess all Uie stories that preju
diced Republicans and Democrats
have endeavored to "plant" on them.
It woald.be as shocking as It Is prob
ably unbelievable to those who do not
understand the extremes to which
some politicians will go to accomplish
their purpose. Any man or woman
who permits his or her vote to be In
fluenced by these stories, however
circumstantial they may appear, will
be doing an injustice to senator Har
ding and Gov. Cox. for, while both are
human beings, they are honorable and
honest men. with a morality and con
sole nee far above the aserage, and all
the stories about drinking, gambling,
business deals, domestic troubles, an
cestral weaknesses and the like can
be dismissed as having absolutely no
more relationship to the true worth of
the two presidential candidates than
the color of their hair aiid the shade
of their eyes. Copyright, IMo, by
