Madison Wisconsin State Journal (Newspaper) - April 25, 1920, Madison, Wisconsin
Domino the week senator Johnson. Victor in Michigan and the Surprise of the Chicago voting added to his Delegate score by defeating general Wood in Nebraska and Montana. It looks As though the primaries were about to indicate to the o. O. P. Convention a first and second preference of which one stands for Domestic i Felicity and the other for International instability. As Between a machine gun government and an administration Blind to the world about us there would be Little Choice. A Wood or Johnson presidency would suggest that Tho next War might be to make the world Safe from democracy. Neither of the a men has risen above the most conventional political prattle but this seems to be the year of the big Bazzoon. Wood for Quot reeking tube and Iron shard Quot and Johnson for a wild tongues that have not thee in Lowden who has added Iowa to his Illinois string of delegates and who has some scattering strength is a More repossessing figure. To has shown himself capable of fairly sound deductions upon the International situation and his administration As governor of Illinois presents an encouraging record of Economy and horse sense. His defect is that he lacks that first hand and intimate knowledge of foreign affairs which makes Hoover pre eminently the one Best bet for the presidency. Great world currents Are running and America will flow As the world flows. A very deep and astute Man who has to borrow hts information upon foreign conditions would be open to serious mistakes. The country needs the Man who knows. And who has demonstrated exceptional ability to use his knowledge. The steady flow of Hoover votes written in As against the printed names of other candidates from state to state indicates a growing feeling against the political quackery of More politicians who Are hell Bent on thimble Reg gang the conventions regardless of Public opinion. Of All the professional politicians could be deported until after election of boy what a grand and glorious feeling lit senator Roy p. Wilcox has announced his candidacy for the governorship. In addition to bus 100-per-cent Yankee i Rood in ism he is expected to present a progressive platform of considerable Merit following generally the lines of the reconstruction program which he fathered in the Senate. He May be expected to get Tho support of Many of the la fillet to irreconcilable and a Large business following. Probably his candidacy presents the most for raid Able opposition thus far offered to the Success of a la Follette candidate. A a a the entry of governor Philipp into the race would complicate things for Wilcox but whether to the latter disadvantage is a matter Tor speculation. Against Wilcox Philipp would pass with his Best violence for there Are no better strangers. In defeating Wilcox by a pint and a couple of a teens two years ago the governors sense of Cit lie. Nob in sustained wounds the scars of which he still carries. In the Delegate fight to received Little support in counties where the Best political strategy is to slap Uncle Sam in the face and even his wet friends seem largely to have lost sight of him. Hut should to become the target of an attack by Wilcox similar to that aimed at him by the latter two years ago he might recover strength in quarters where on april 8 last his scanty vote showed the devoted citizenry did t credit him with being at All the Patriot Wilcox had cracked him up to be. Indeed the governor seems to be just one of those unlucky Wisconsin politicians who Are under suspicion of having been More or less Loyal to the country. A Good suggestion to the astute politician is to attach an Iron Cross to his identification card and step in front of a Street car. However in spite of this Handicap. Governor Philipp might make his candidacy Felt. He is resourceful and nervy and has fought his Way out of More than one Hole by Riding a Hoover mount and displaying a Beer and Light wines Banner he might out wet tile la Follette wets and leave Wilcox High and dry. It is no cocktail illusion that there is no kids spread enthusiasm Over Badger aridity and the rank and file still votes by appetite rather than by reason. The a Thor Side of it is that were Tho wets to be split about even Between the governor and a la Follette candidate Wilcox might Canter Home with the amp in ribbon on a minority nomination. A a a in tile la Follette Camp Dith mar to a known candidate. Fiddle Gross who ran second Ltd a the a Follette Del gation is eager to try conclusions for the nomination. John j. Blaine strongly urged is reluctant but per laps undecided. With a a Follette Ove mor Prol ably impending there is a Strong feeling that the senator should save from distress such Yankee in Ards As the state possesses by flapping out for Blaine who is generally concede i to be the Best Avail Ible Timber in the la Follette Camp. A a a the do pester Are at work on the a alums from the Delegate fight and Hose of the Stalwart Type Are prepared to demonstrate to a mathematical certainty that the result was a humiliating reverse for senator a Follette.
