we In tills Repub lican stronghold ot Pennsylvania can do no less than givo President Cool idso our indorsement and backing in his efforts to complete the work he has begun Having laid that foundation

will be primary election day ip tho State oC Pennsylvania On that day the voters face a complication of aiTairs particularly as to the United States Senatorship Sen ator George Wharton Pepper is a candidate to succeed himself His opponents are Governor Pinchot and Congressman William S Yarc A review of the real issue and the counterfeit issue forced into the campaign will not be amiss at this time As to the counterfeit issue Both Governor Pinchot and Congressman Vare dwell upon the wet and dry issue This is political bunk of the cheapest brand for both know and know well that the election in November of any man cannot affect iiv even the slightest degree the wet and dry problem that is with us Therefore it is an insult lo the inteHiBence of the voters of this great to raiseit and prate about it t is unlikely that voters of this generation will be here to witness thecontest that may some day be made to Bottle the once and for all Therefore Ihe prohibition question is not a veal issue in this contest and no political condition or situation can make it so The Eighteenth Amendment lo flic Constitution oC the United States prohibits the sale Of intoxicating liquors foi beverage purposes It is declared by many of thu best minds in the country that there is but one way to bring liquors and that is byremoving the Eighteenth Amendment from the Constitution To perform hat operation on the Constitution would require the agreement of at least thirtysix slates and wouldlake many years Bub where arc you going to get the thirtysix states from It just simply cannotbe done for it is a wellknown fact judgingrom past records of the states on various forms and phases of the prohibition question that at least that many slates arc dry and would so vote should opportunity come Congress is overwhelmingly dry That being the case where does a real wet and dry issueja uiitmd Pinchot Miiford piuo come in Mr Citizen there aint no sicli animile C0wmuun s vmo of r Nobody informed on the subject hi this broad land WKU vanccs any such theory issue save the politician and he has the sole purpose of trying to gather votes by throwing out this pitifully weak sop to obtain the goal of his ambition TJic realissue is this Senator desires to control the state and to profit by that control in ways that have brought disgraceupon that portion of the state lie has Philadelphia The contest is between SenatorPepper and Congressman Yare Governor Pinchot is notin the running Therefore it may easily be seen that a vote for Governor Pinchot is a vote for Yarc If the voters do not want Varc and it is certain that a majority does not then it is easily seen that they should vote for Pepper Otherwise if they vote for Pinchot they are throwing away i vote that would help nominate Pepper and arcTgiving it to Yarc Withbut a few liouwi left oC what has developed lo bo ono of tlio bit terest political campiiiBiiH in the history oC Pennsylvania leaders of ho different partleH urn
