ON WAR QUESTION
(From the Xntionnl Republican
Congressional Committee. Special
Washington,!). 0. September 2G
Claims that President Wilson has
"Kept us out of war" are so ridic
ulously untrue that it is amusing
to those who know the facts, declar
ed Representative Charles F. Curry,
of California, in a statement here
"His refusal to recognize Huerta
as the de facto President of Mexico,
as was done by European nations,
encouraged bandit chiefs to continue
their guerrilla warfare. Since then
bis vacillating policy, putting on
embargoes one day and lifting them
the next, supporting one faction to
day and another tomorrow, dictat
ing who should not be a candidate
for the Presidency of Mexico, and
his meddlesome muddling general
ly, caused by bis personal antipathy
to Huerta, based on an uncompli
mentary remark made about him
by Huerta, prolonged the revolu
tions. '"President Wilson committed two
acts of war against Mexico. One
punitive expedition was for the
avowed purpose of compelling Huer
ta to fire a salute of twenty-one guiis
to our Hag, a number of American
Marines and Mexicans were killed
at Vera Cruz; the supply of note
paper at the White House was ex
hausted, but tl io salute was not fir
ed. The second punitive expedition
was after the raid on Columbus and
was to get Villa dead or alive. Villa
still lives and is at liberty.
"The President called for a con
ference of Mexican factions to es
tablish a de facto government but
said be would not recognize the
leader of any. faction that failed to
attend. Carranza was the only lead
er that refused to pay attention to
he conference and President Wilson
ecognized him. '
"In handling the Mexican situa
tion the Wilson administration has
invariably 'done those things it
ought not to have done and left un
done those things it ought to have
"The President has reiterated and
his mouthpieces have claimed so of
ten that he is entitled to the credit
of 'keeping us out of the European
war' that j many persons accept the
statements as true. Neither the Al
lies nor the Central Powers want
the United States to become involv
ed in the contlict.
"Nothing can involve us in that
conflict unless we deliberately cease
to maintain strict neutrality and
blunder into it. "The United States
is three thousand miles away from
the European conflict. Denmark,
Holland, Sweden, Norway and Swit
zerland are right at the doors of the
warrinn nations and yet these little
countries are not involved. It is
absurd for the President's partizans
to claim that 'he has kept us out of
"The President is an exceedingly
n erudite, well-meaning, k i n d 1 y,
polished gentleman, possessing more
book learning and less wisdom than
any of his predecessors. During the
time he has occupied the Presidcn
tial chair it has been demonstrated
conclusively that it is one of the
most easy of intellectual efforts for
a scholastic idealist to dream dreams
evolve theories, and in imagination
govern the world from a philosphcr's
chair, imt that when it comes to
dealing with flesh ami blood, human
nature, economic conditions, and
international problems as they are
it is an entirely different proposi
tion. It is not dreams and theories
but facts and conditions, that must
be considered, not abstract philoso
phy but concrete wisdom that must
be used to effectively govern a poo
pie in such a manner as to surely
safeguard their rights and liberties
ami advance their prosperity a t
home and protect the national war
fare and maintain the dignity, honor
and power of the Commonwealth
"The people have not forgotten
that after a conference with the
President on diplomatic complica
tions of an acute nature between our
(!ov( rnmeiit and one of the Europe-
na belligerents, distinguished mem
bers, of the Senate Foreign Rela
tions Committee told Senators and
Representatives and even stated to
newspapermen that the President
had become very much excited dur
ing the conference nnd in a vehe
ment manner had said in effect, 'It
might not ..be a bad thing for
civilization and would hasten the
end if the United States would enter
the war on the side of the Allies.'
"Early in his administration the
President was 'too proud to fight,'
later he was looking for an oppor
tunity to break into the war; today
he claims to be entirely neutral;
what his attitude will be tomorrow
