Out of the middleweat tha candidaclea of Vice President Dawea and former Gov. ernor Lowden of Illinois stand out conplcuously. The report thst the Utter would holt the party If uuable to beat Mr. Coolldga for the nomination Is not taken seriously here though It Is not at all improbable that a LaKol-lette third party movement may coma out of the agricultural west and deprive the regular republican nominee of the electoral vote of one or two states. All Coelidgs Now. What the friends of Mr. Dawes are hoping Is that the Lowden movement will In some manner pre vent the nomination of Mr. Coolidge and that Mr. Dawes who is presumed 11 be acceptable to the business In tereata'of tha east will then be a logical compromise. Thla preaup-posea a wllllngneas to abandon Mr. Coolldga on the part of the eastern republicans who really control the republican party together wUh the southern delegates. The Hughes announcement makes It appear that tha Coolidge strength inside his own party Is increasing rather than diminishing and that if the convention were held tomorrow he would have an easy time winning the nomination.
