Fed on Own Words.
It was- stated in this correspo
ence some weeks ago that Sena
Harrison would' make just such
address. The senator was well hel]
as far as facts and language w
concerned. He convicts Harvey,
convicted he was, out of his o
mouth, his editorials having be
made the basis of practically all tl
was said. His charges were sensatii
al heyond all question.

Senator Lodge followed with an i

flayed the traducers of the form
president, the Democratic party, ar
the league of nations. Senators No
ris- and Ashurst contributed the
mites. All in all, as result, the da
was epoch making.
Senator Harrison charged, and rea
Harvey's editorials to substantial
his charge, that Colonel Harvey sui
ported a party in desire of person*
preferment, and that he turns agains
a party when his ambition is nc
gratified. He charged that Harve
not only ridiculed the president, whc
was helpless as an invalid, but tha
he ridiculed Mrs. Wilson; that h
ridiculed Taft, and Roosevelt am
even the Virgin Mary.1 He concludei
with a contention, that Harvey cai
not properly represent the Unite<
States in England because he ha:
made the bitterest attacks agains'
Lloyd George, attacks in which h<
sought by ridicule to make the firsl
man in England appear a tool in th?
hands of interested people. Regard
ing the journalistic temperament o?
Harvey, Senator Harrison said.
Harsh in Criticism.
"Few men in the history of journ
alism have possessed to a more re
markable degree, qualities of genius
for violent expression, caustic criti
cism ,and the power through fair or
foul means to employ cogent phrases
intended to appeal to prejudice and
to arouse hatred and resentment. He
is remarkable in that his whole life
has been one of inconsistency and
vacillation. He never remained true
to any purpose, loyal to any friend,
or steadfast to any conviction. He is
wedded to no principle or bound by
no conscience. He is a writer of the
most cunning and dangerous species,
and a master in fomenting trouble
and aggravating delicate situations.
As a creator of prejudice and stir
rer of strife, he has no equal. He is
a vindictive, self-annointed, intoler
ant political accident. There is not a
statesman of this generation who has
not been praised and abused, glorified
and maligned, elevated and debased,
^eulogized and "cussed" at one time
or another by George Harvey, the
violence or mildness . of his expres
sions being trolled by the exigencies
of the moment and his temperamental
condition. There was never such an
unsuited and unfitted individual Mn

training, temperament and "inviron

There was excitement in the gal
leries. But for occasional humor,
there might have been heart failure.
Senator Reed's ridicule of Mr. Wil
son, the league of nations, Herbert
Hoover, and even the partizanship of
the average Democrat, was highly
pleasing to Republicans on the floor,
and in the galleries. He produced
laughter when he said: "If you should
put the Saviour of mankind and the
12 apostles in a sanctum, and run
up the Republican banner, the sena
tor from Mississippi would probably
Becoming Stale Subject.
But Reed did not "get away" with
all the laughter., Senator Heflin of
Alabama paid humorous respects to
the senator from Missouri. He said:
"The senator seems to have a griev
ance . against the league of nations.
We rarely ever see him on the floor.'
that he doesn't mount that old nag
and ride him around and around in
this chamber. Whenever I see him
throw his spurs into the flank of that
helpless old horse, I know just about
what is going to happen. This habit
^s getting a trifle stale."
The Alabama senator referred to
thej promise of Senator Lodge at the
Republican convention that he would
destroy the last vestige of Wilsonism.
He proved that the Republicans had
not destroyed : the Democratic policy
regarding Colombia, Yan, mainte
nance of the troops on the Rhine,
Mesopotamia and the non-resump
tion of relations with Russia^But, ac
cording to the senator, they have
wrought destruction. Said he:
"You have destroyed the greatest
hope for peace on earth and good
will to men. You have failed to ac
cept the greatest peace program ever
offered the civilized world and helped
to cripple and break down the great

ed the dusty highways of Judea. Mr.
President, Woodrow Wilson may be
lame and halt-God bless him-but
he will live in the hearts of the
American people and live on the
brightest pages of American history
long after his slanderers and traduc

neous applause in the gallery, the
gavel of Vice President Coolidge fell
with a resounding bang.
"If there are further demonstra

"the galleries will be cleared."
PROHIBITION AMERICA WILL
Sir James Hope Simpson, chair
man of Liverpool and Martins Bank,
speaking at the Halifax. Chamber of
Commerc banquet, said that "if we
could get ?450,000,000 distributed in
the country and used in domestic
trade, it would have the needed finan
cial revival. That sum might be found
in the ?450,000,000 spent annually
upon drink." He had inquired per
sonally from 200 leading American
business men what the effect of pro
hibition was, and every one told him
it was the greatest step America had
ever taken, and she would never go
back upon it. It was a tremendous
economic gain that was being expe
rienced in America.
R. F. Erwin Regarding His Troubles.
"A year ago last winter I had an
attack of indigestion followed by bil
iousness and constipation. Seeing
Chamberlain's Tablets so highly rec
commended for stomach troubles I
bought a bottle of them and they
helped me right away" writes R. F.
Erwin, Peru, Ind. If you have any
trouble with your digestion give these
tablets a trial. They will do you good.
LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS
As a part of its program for the
coming year, the National League of
Women Voters which has just held its
second annual convention in the city
of Cleveland, Ohio, has endorsed the
strict enforcement of laws prohibit

for beverage purposes, and of laws

If Old Columbus Had Not
Suppose Old Christopher Columbus
Had been a stand patter; .
Or known nothing of eggs
Except their use in batter,
Wouldn't we have been
In a* terrible fix, ,
If he hadn't known
A few little tricks?
We'd probably net have
Existed at all,
If he hadn't possessed
A little exploitation gall.
But Chris had an idea,
Though extreme for his day;
It took a lot of nerve
But he was built that way.
And with some other fellows
He started westbound,
To prove his theory
That the world was round.
Think of the chance he took,
As in the boat he sat,
For everyone believed.
That the world was flat.
That somewhere beyond
The horizon was an edge,
But Chris took a chance
Risked falling over the dedge.
He went out daring, he
Knew not what danger
Might be lying in wait,
For his frail sea ranger.
It required real nerve
To sail in to the unknown, '
Where no living man
Had heretofore gone.
And so it is today,
In every line of endeavor,
There are pioneers with vision
Of better things ever.
Trying new fields to explore
To discover something new,
That might make things better
For me and you.
There are men working today
Using time, money and talent,
And every way they can
Render a sacrifice valiant.
We should leave no stone unturned,
That would encourage a chap,
Whether he be improving a locomotive
Or a simple mouse trap.

which it has effected have made it a
staple article of trade.

delivered his first message to Con
gress in person. *
Thc two houses assembled in joint
session in the House Chamber to hear
the Executive outline his views with
regard to the many domestic and for
eign problems pressing for solution.
Seldom in the memory of the oldest
habitue of the Capital has there been
such a rush to obtain admission tick
ets. Men and women from every walk
in life were there. In the executive
and diplomatic galleries and the
Speaker's row in the member's gal
lery were many representatives of
foreign nations, and men and women
in high official life.
The principal recommendations in
[the President's message follow:
No separate peace with Germany.
No helpful society of nations can
I be founded until peace is established.
Covenant' of existing League of
[Nations can not be accepted.
Readjustment of internal taxes.
Instant tariff enactment for the
Railroad rates and costs of opera
tion must be reduced.
Strengthening of laws governing
Federal aid for good roads.
Establishment and maintenance of
a great merchant marine.
Encouragement for civil1 annd mil
itary development of aviation.
Immediate extension of govern
ment hospital facilities for former
Congress to wipe the stain of bar
baric lynching from the banners of
ia free and orderly representative de
While the United States is 'in sym
pathy with movements for peace, it I
must not discard agencies to defend I *
until there is removed the need to
Enactment of a national budget
Less government in business
[more business in government.
Suitable inquiry by Congress with
out haste in accusation of profiteer
|ing might speed price readjustment.
Legislation for public protection
?of maternity and infancy.
