'sailors and "marines, establishment of municipal markets and a new in heritance tax system. BY DAVID LAWRE5CE. (Special to The Argus.) New York, Oct 11. Republicans and Democrats who have been pre dicting that Senator Harding would win the election "unless something happened in October" are wonder ing it the revolt started by Herbert Parsons, ; influential Republican leader hire, u gainst Harding, can possibly be that "something." The Democrats in 1912 won by a division in the ranks of the Republi can party. They succeeded in 1916 again because they retained . the support of the progressive elements that had broken away in 1912. The big question today is whether the Republican party will divide defin itely into pro-League of Nations and anti-league tactions.

"Corn has made wonder ful progress toward maturity dur ing, last week and the grain has been drying out rapidly," the re port of crop estimates of the de partment of agriculture announced today.

Spencer quoted the president as addressing Premier Brat ia no ot Rumania as follows at the eighth ident Taft, in which the latter ap peared as the president's advisor in the league's drafting. Governor Cox quoted Mr. Taft in an effort to show that the for mer . president has repudiat ed Senator Harding's plan for a new world association.
