News, which shows what significance was placed on the re turn of Holm O. Hursuin to the Senate: NEW .MEXICO KEPUUMCAN (J'roni the New York Herald) Democratic disappointment over the election of Dursum, the Itc puMiean candidate for United States Senator from Now Mexico, is more biltcr than it was over the loss of the state o Harding lasl year. In the election of 1920, partisanship was swept away everywhere ex cept in the solidost part of Uic south; by the transcondent Issue of saving' tho country from perilous advon tiiros abroad and ruinous misman agement at home. In that national election thcro seemed to bo little thought and oven less talk of Republicanism and dem ocracy when tho vast majority of the nation was bent upoii getting the country out of the national and international mess into which it had been thrust, not as tho democratic party's policy sbut as the imperious will and infloxiblo program of a singlo man. But tho veterans of public lifo have taken it for granted that with tho great restoration of American principles by that election of 1920 democratic slates would again grav itate toward the democratic party as naturally as water seeks its level. New Mexico, in its brief period of statehood had shown itsolf to ho a democratic state until Mr. Wilson's administration threw it over to the Harding column by a plurality of 11,000. That tho state is still turned away from the democratic party af ter the Wilson issuo lias been dis posed of for good and all, is the staggering blow lo those democrat ic leaders who are now trying lo ex plain that tlio ote was very light.
