Some national tides aro running hero; there will bo sor,ie significance to the votca of tho clttss hero and' Ihero which may giro comfort to thoso looking for Natlon-wld- o cur-rcnt- s, but It is Al Smith, tho sclf-tnad- o man, tho fearless public ser- vant, a real personality In American politics, who will win not tho Dem- ocratic Party. Any one who could come near to wjnnlng tho Governorship In a year When tho I'rcstdciitl.in nominee of tho opposite party carried tho Stato by tho unprecedented mnjorlty of a mil- lion votes would seem to have, on paper at least, tho better clianco of winning.

Ilia ardent admirers havo hoped that If he triumphed for Governor again he would bo carefully considered for the Republican Presidential nomination In tho event that circumstances or personal wish persuaded Mr. Harding not to run for a second term. But. unfortunately for Gov. Miller, Tie la running ugalnst tho most diff- icult candldato to beat who has ap- peared In a generation. Totally un- like Hughes, who gained popularity by his spectacular fights against boss rule, unlike any of tho other Govern- ors who camo nftcr Hughes, Al Smith Is moro of tho Cleveland type a man of tho people.
