It ii cot surprising that the ex-j

There Is great deal of truth In
Ike President's statement, as am
pHi,d by tha Philadelphia Juurnul,
but tits President and the mews
paper b;.w evidently forgotten thai
such a man st Woodrow Wilson
ever lived. .
They fcave forgotten that while he
was engigid in the most important
and onerous' national service ever
undertaken by an American, the Re
publican party in this country spetil
Its time r.i the vefy sniping process
against v.hich Mr. Harding Is now
Thty criticised him for the t.lte
and fxpe.it e of his clerical forro on

the lnte Senator Penrose, the olifl
srch or ;und-nat Republicanism in
the Senile, even stooped so Jow as
to call i i question a few gifts of
paltry value which generous friends
bestowed upon Mrs. Wilson abrond.
When it comes to "national ser
vice" remaining "untold and snap-1
predated" while "no alleged mii-J
demeanor bi't-nnrehing the naruo Of,
a high public ofTicial is too uiilm-t
portant to claim notice," the Tress j
which Mr. Harding is now pleased,
to denounce, never approached in.
its niggardly or mendacious splrit
the nttlitide of the Senate" of the,
l ulled Suites toward Woodrow Wil-j
son while he was abroad.
r.ut that is uot all. When he re-i
turned home facing a hostile Sen-,
ate, forced to go to the; people fori
any hope of success, and was strlrk-.
en down in his labors, the relentless
hand of malice beat upon his sick
chamber, and partisan envy In-1
vented '.lie niiscrble slander that -he
was crazy. '
How trivial and inconsequential j
are the offenses of these "black
guards of the press," as President !
Harding characterizes them, in
printing on authentic and undenled
account of the charges against Harry I
Daugherty, an ablebodied, strong!
American, compared to the mlsera-j
ble slanders which a partisan Sen-j
ate circulated against a stricken'
I're-iu-.ni and 1.1s gentle wife.
Narrow and insensate partisan j
partisanship has written many black j
pages upon the political history of,
the I'nited S.atis. but none blacker (
than the treatment accorded to
Woodrow Wilson as be lay at .
death's door in a White House
chamber. 1 j
No resolution ever expressed' the
hive of the recovery of the Presi-;
dent of the Tnited S-tates; no '
syllable of sympathy for him was,(
ever uttered; whilst the poison;
squad, headed by Senator Moses, ofi
New Hampshire, was industriously j
circulating the rumor that the Pres
i,",tiit hud lost his mind.
That is the record of the manner
in which a Republican Senate treat
ed Woodrow Wilson when he was
unable to meet bis defamers;
Surely when Mr. Harding rebukes:
the press fur merely printing legiti
mate news in regard to. a Cabinet
membrr who Is at least strong of
body, IT he is not clean 01 near., ne
must h::ve forgotten that he him
self was a member of the United
State Senate in the fall of 1919.
