THE OMAHA SUNDAY Bffl: JULY 7. 1918. 5 A PARTY POLITICS ADJOURNED -TO INDIANAPOLIS Vice President Permitted to ' Joy With Fates at Heme; Champ Clark Tempted by Mullen's Call. fashington Bureau of The Omaha Bee. 1311 G Street. By EDGAR C. SNYDER. When the president announced to congress in all seriousness, on May 27 that, "politics is adjourned." a broad smile illuminated the faces of that body of 500 men. That it did not break into a loud guffaw was pre vented only by the self-restraint of those representatives and senators. That "adjournment," however, is Ihe subject of many a quiet chuckle on the part of democrats and republi cans alike when they meet and talk over the events of the past few months. One witty democrat, who would raise an awful row if he knew he was being quoted, said to a friend in the lobby of the house the other day, "It is true politics have adjourned, but not es to time, simply as to place, from .Washington to Indianapolis. We sent iicott Ferris, chairman of the national fiemocratic committee, over to stage the affair at the Indiana state con vention. Vice President Marshall wanted to make a speech and we thought he could do as little damage in Indianapolis as anywhere. Then we had ex-Governor Ralston do the Marc Antony stunt of offering the crown for the third time to the mod ern Julius. We thought it the part of wisdom to have it offered at that par ticular time and place, following the recent disclaimers as to re-election. It might not have been wise to have offered it nearer in point of time or place, for had it been closer our modern Caesar might have grabbed ." Arthur Mullen Has His Way. So much for Indiana! Then again Champ Clark, speaker of the house, :n the latter part of May, announced that he would make one speech in Ohio and that was all he would make in this campaign, but when Champ listened to the siren-voiced li'l Arthur Mullen of our own Nebraska demo cracy, telling what a rousing ovation the "unterrified" would give Champ if he would deliver the keymote speech at Hastings, the speaker yielded to the seductive influences and agreed to go if congress was in recess at that time. All of which leads up to the ques tion "has politics really adjourned or is -somebody trying to camouflage the American people?" The League of National Unity agreed upon a definition of loyalty which was approved by the heads of both republican and democratic na tional committees. It was based upon the records of candidates subsequent to the declaration of war, whether then in or out of congress. It is in teresting to observe how the public considered this definition in the nom ination of 'candidates already made. Lenfoot Overcomes Opposition. Lenroot of Wisconsin was nomi nated for senator in the face of strong opposition. He was first opposed by McGovern, who challenged Lenroot's right to nomination because, before the war. Lenroot had 'voted for the tabling of the McLemore resolution and favored prohibiting the shipment of munitions to Europe. McGovern, who was an ultra war man. was con vinced of his error and withdrew from the race. This left Lenroot opposed by Thompson, vflio was against war measures, and especially objected to the economic means which had been taken to finance the war. On this, the republicans turned him down, showing that they were in favor of supporting the war financially. At the election the full power of $ the, administration was used to defeat Lenroot for his failure to come up to the "acid test" which the president based upoia record made by Lenroot before the war. The answer was a substantial majority for Lenroot. A heavy fight was made on Con gressmen Johnson and Dillon, repub licans, in South Dakota, because they voted against war. Johnson was nominated by a three to one vote. Dillon was defeated by a scratch. His opponent lives in Sioux Falls, the largest city of the state, and they stormed the district that day, the light country and village vote operat ing the undoing of Dillon. Haugen and Hull Big Winners. In Iowa fights were made uoon Haugen and Hull, republicans, be- s-cause they voted against war and con scription. Haugen was nominated by a four to one vote, and Hull by sev eral thousand majority. A contest was made on Woods, republican, who Governor and Madame Guerin Address State House Thrift Society From a Staff Correspondent. Lincoln, July 6. 'Special.) The state house thrift society held a meet ing today addressed by Governor Neville. The society at present has 186 members and will probably reach much greater proportions later. Madame Guerin, a French woman, who has been speaking over the coun try in behalf of the French orp ran fund, gave a brief talk. had not been back to visit his district for six years. He was defeated. His vote on war was said by himself and his colleagues not to have been an is sue. Ramseyer was assailed because he voted against conscription. He was nominated by nearly 3.000. All of these men voted for the completed army bill and the revenue measure. Fights were made on Volstead aiid Steenerson of Minnesota, who had voted for war, Steenerson having vot ed against conscription. Both were nominated by good majorities. Bit ter fights were made against Davis and Knutson, both of whom had vot ed against w ar and Davis against con scription. Davis was nominated by over 6,000, and Knutson by over 2,000. Minnesota MembeF Defeated. Lundeen, a new Minnesota member, who was not in congress before the war came up, voted against war and against the completed army bill. Ap parently he was either opposed to rtrosecuting the war, or his judgment 4as that we could fight Germany without an army. They evidently con demned his judgment. He was de feated. Van Dyke, Minnesota democrat, al though oting against war and con scription, but supporting the war measures, was nominated. Young and Norton, republicans of North Dakota, both voted for war conscription and war measures, gen erally. Young was nominated. Nor ton defeated. Baer, who was not in congress when war was declared, or the early war measures passed upon, was nominated by a close vote. In Florida the only fight was on Kehoe. who had voted for war. He was defeated. McLaughlin, republican of Penn sylvania, voted for war, for con scription and other war measures, but was defeated. Of the eight who voted .against war, fights having been made on them for that and various other reasons, three were defeated. Of the seven who voted for war and against whom a contest was made, three were defeat ed. One only, whose nomination was contested, who had voted against having an armyLundeen, was de feated. What is Real Acid Test? Among congressmen, if one were to take the consensus of judgments as to what is being held of importance by the people "back home," I believe we would find: Did you vote for the army bill as finally prepared and passed? Did you support the tax measure to support the army in the field? Some one said that the "acid test," if it had been defined by Grant, Mc Kinley, or Roosevelt, who knew what fighting meant, would have been di rected to the- question as to how y,ou conducted yourself after being in the fight rather than how. you got in. Of one thing rest assured, the state ment of "Politics. Adjourned" has de ceived n5 one. "Too proud to fight," "Peace without victory," "Kept us out of war," and all other phrases have hardened the Washington pub lic. They do not buy stock, political ly, on the attractively-ornamentally-printed-and-ribbon-bound certificate. They consult the actual market.
