It's Johnson or notkim with them. And preparation al ready are under way for a third party composed of some of the ele menls which broke away in 1912 and formed the progressive party some of the radicals who like neither the republican nor the democratic parties, the voters controlled by the chain of Hearst newspapers, and the ·numerous groups who are irreconcil ably opposed to the ratification Uf tho peace treaty, even with reservation I ' I Lawrence goes on to bay that the third party would draw from both the democratic and republican parties aiid this is probably so. However, the same claim was made in 1912. but the result showed that the republicans suffered mucl) more than the democrats. If the split at Chicago is o*er the adoption of the peace treaty--and opposition to it is Johnson's chief campaign issue--then it is evident thai the republican party will be the chief I / sufferer from the third party, for while Johnson is polling a large pei- ceDtage of the repuolican vote, the opposition to President SiVilson's policies is almost negligible in dimo- ciatic states, witn few exceptions. But Johnson is right in saying thai the peace treaty and the league at Lau'ons is the most important issue LODGE. ic parties believe that the result o f , before the voters irgiu now,, imd it the Johnson caiuyaifii will be a split j i s cnlv ri S M that tncy should have at Chicago and a third party ticket. a chance to express themselves upon' This prediction is" based upon the belief that Johnson will come up to , Chicago with a following so large that he will claim recognition, but that the party dare not nominate him nor put his ideas into its plat-' i t'ons to the world. i-epublicans in congress, by devoting fourteen months to a discns- sion of the treaty, to the exclusion pf MASONIC Iowa City Lodge Nq # 4' A.

' · ters than there* is regarding our rela- form, becaiise to do so would be to' give offense to the conservative and cautious elements which have always been the backbone Lawrence writes: of the- party. Primary results -in California where LOWNDEN HAS COURAGE One can but admire the fine courage of Governor Frank, Lowden, in i accepting. the bluffing challenge of I "Big Bill" Thompson, and going to ' the mat with him. Thompson, like the big bluffer he is, demanded the right to control the republican state convention in Illinois, which is to assemble next week. He presumed upon the fact that Lowden is a candidate for president, and supposed that like mast candi- practically all legisltfon for reconstruction, have themselves adiu'tted Senator Hiram Johnson has defeated'!hat the treaty is of first importance. Herbert Hoover have accentuated the) lines of political strength as the time for the two big conventions approaches. Republican senators who are friendly to Senator Johnson concede that he cannot be nominated ^at Chicago. They say he is not reallyj radical, but behind him are groups of vbters whose support of the republican ticket is not so much based on a conversion to republican "doctrine as it is on 'personal fordness for Hiram Johnson. To permit Johnson to be nominated would insure the domination of these elements, something which the conservative leaders of the republican party do not welcome. ^ . But to fail to nominate Johnson means a po ssible defection and a third party. The California senator Johnson believes tuat right at tlie point where we are .ibout to *ix ?iu" fo-'eign policies for a generation, perhaps, the peopl^ ought to be giveu an oportunity to |Si* what they want. .And for once, President Wilson is in agieement with the senator. And if the republican natmocnl convention attenip-s f camouflage tha issue and bee'cud it by claiming to be for the treaty and the league --v?rfh "reservations" 1hat kill 5!-there is every prospect that a/ third ticket, led either by Johnson or Borah, will be placed iu the fleld. mast dates, LoVden would be too timid to face a fight in his home state. But Lowden fooled him. Te governor declared ,that regardless of the effect of the fight upon his presidential chances, he would not allow TOB control of the republican party in Illinois to pass to Thompson without a struggle. This public defiance of the mayor means that unless the latter backs down, one of the hottest political contests of the year will be staged in Illinois the coming week. ' Lowden's course may not be good politics,' but it is good manhood and good citizenship. It is through the cowardice of candidates, oftentimes, that ruffians like Thomps'on get their 'power. But even ? from a political point of view, Lowden's candidacy ought to be advanced rather than injured by 'his courageous course in bucking the big bully who has captured the political machine iff Cook county. British \ papers comment freely on "American impertinence" in discussing the Irish question. Well, Johnny, it is no body.s business what ructions a man kicks up in his own house, but he can hardly deny, the^neighbors the pleasure of gossiping about it.

The Company has endeavored to borrow pipe from neighbor gas companies, but find that their pipe stocks are also depleted. We regret very much that we are not in a position to install gas services within a few days after receipt of order, but will endeavor to get caught up on orders as soon as we are able to secure, shipment on pipe.
