In Independent Units In
"the Election This. Year
By CHARLES P. BTGW4RT -
Washington, OcL 20.—Some Demo
cratic papers have been asking
whether G. O. P. strategists would
succeed in scaring the country’s work
ingmen, almost at the last minute be
fore election, into throwing the bulk
of their strength to the Republican
ticket, by giving warning, of an Im
mediate cessation of what is left of
industrial employment In the event
of a Democratic victory.
It will be recalled that this wqp the
method by which many Democratic
politicians r/oert that Mark Hanna
won William McKinley's first elec
tion .in the midst of the depression of
s the 1890 s.
And, whether or not Hanna ad vised
them to, do so. there is no question
that numerous large employers of
labor did announce, during the j. 896
campaign, that/they would shut up

Senator Smith Would

Columbia, S. C.. Oct. 20 (AP)
Leaders of the cotton Industry today
studied a plea of E. D. Smith, veteran
senator of South Carolina, to eVminate
10.000,000 bales fro mthe present sup
ply through government purchase.
Thia Senator Bmith said would eurt iSi
1933 production fay that amount and
give growers “at least a reasonable
hope of prosperity.”
The senator, ranking minority mem
ber of the agriculture comnfittee, said
he would introduce a bill at the next
session of Congress appropriating
$500,000,000 to enable the government
to buy the 10,000,000 bales at market
prices. The government would sell
the cotton to farmers “on time” and
retire tt from the market. Farmers
would sign contracts to cut their. 1*33
crop by the amount of cotton they
bought. (After the government dis
posed of the 10,000.000 bales It

charges and give the remainder to the

The British press quite generally
attributes last English election
result to adoption of the Hanna plan
by the industrial magnates of King
George's realm. It certainly was com
mon talk in advance that the radicals
would win by a landslide instead of
which an ultra-conservative regime
was swept into power, after very
much such a Tory hullabaloo as mark
ed the 1890 McKinley-Bryan campaign
on this side of the water.
That a similar cry Is now about to
be raised on a national scale is pre
dicted as the next development in the
presidential contest, and what Its ef

Those Statements Flatly

Paris, Oct. 20.—<AP)- France plans
to pay promptly the December install
ment of the 3400,000,000 French “com
mercial” war debt to the United
States, Premier Herrlot was quoted
by Paris newspapers today aa saying,
but she will continue efforts to secure
cancellation or reduction of the rest
of the debt by negotiation.
The declaration ascribed to premier
was reported to have been made last
night at a session of & committee of
the Chamber of Deputies. The "com
_j»ercial” debt is for army stocks
bought during the war.
The question whether France in
tended to pay her war debts to the
United States * was asked by Deputy
Henry Haye, it was reported.
L, Echo de Parts said M. Herriot ad
ded the following to hie reply:
“But I make a distinction between
the comhnercial debt and the political
debt. Regarding the latter, whatever
the results of the (American) presi
dential election, we will negotiate, try
lng as far as we are able to obtain
more favorable treatment.
“If we could secure cancellation, it
would be most desirable, but don’t ask
me to give any promise, for It’s not
dependent on me.”
ADMINISTRATION HEADS

Washington. Oct. 20.—(API—Ad
ministration officials refused
to discuss Premier Herriot’s state
ment quoted by the Paris press that
he will continue efforts to secure can
cellation or reduction of that part of
France’s war debt to this coup try
which is not a “commercial" obliga
tion.
Pre.iident Hoove Ka statements in
his speech accepting the nomination
and in his Des Moines address were
pointed out by State Department of

against cancellation of war debts, but
did not close the door to negotiations
