That tho partisan clement that has been a

waa, about such a proportion of tho registered
membership oa that which wa present on a
aomowhat nlntllar occasion rocently in Tulsa.
It Is now known generally that tho stalo con
vention of the legion which moot ln Tulsa next

fessional of non-political activity and declare
nquaroly for entering tho political arena. If tho

be a costly one to the legion.

of course, Is the prlmo purpose of the politicians

by a political element seeking to win special
favors regardless of the effects of those favors
on the people as a wliolo.
Harlow's Weekly, commenting on the decision
of the Oklahoma City post says:
Upon casual view It seoms to be unreason
able to expect anything like coordinate and
universal action from an organization such an
this one upon any Isatics other than those up

expect to be mora effective In controlling Its

closely organized ninl which ho always been

ability t- control It as a unitary voto on parti

Silt. COX i:.MHAItA.SHr.l.
Oov. Cox Iiom yet to learn tho danger that
lurks In profligacy of speech. He evidently ad
heres to tlm view of the German phlsonophor
who avers that "mere talk Is harmless." An ns.
scrtlnn that Is very far from the truth,
Tito Ohio governor began liUi campaign for
Iho presidency by maklm( loose charges against
his opponent and the republican campaign com
mittee. I In charged things that amounted to
scandal If true, Hu laid that ho stood ready
to provo them true.
Hut when tho senate investigating committee
mot and notified him to appear before It Willi
lil! evidence he ijodges nnd evades In a way that
must bo painful to oven his warmest admirers.
Now the situation Is this: The candidate for
tho presidency chargnd that the republican
were raising a campaign fund of 1 16, 000,000;
that it was being contributed by men and In
tcrcrits seeking to purchase the presidency for
tlflr own s"lflh ends.
His utterances, rope.itcd, loaned themselves to
ro other possible construction, The chairman
of the republican campaign committee mado re
ply In a dignified way, stating that tho purpose
of tho republican committee, was to raise, n fund
nf 13,000,000, and urging the democratic can
didate to stick to the public Issues and avoid
a campaign of personalities.
Oov, Cor, virtually giving tho republican
leader tho lie, reiterated his charges and Ignored
tho plea for a dignified campaign. Naturally
tho senato Investigating committee took cogni
zance of tlio affair and asked all concerned to
appear before It and testify undcr oath. The
rcsponso from the icpubllcans was Immediate
Hut Cox, tho blatent demagogue, showed yet
low. Declaring that he did not expect to testify
before tho committee, the governor said:
'I shall send tho matter to tho committee.
All of tho Information I luive will bo given
to the ptibllo nnrtV therefore I do not seo any
use In going befofp the committee. I think
nlso tho commltteo should recognize that as
a cnndldate I should glvo It out in such man
ner ns I seo fit."
Thero Is an Interesting picture eft tho demo
crallo candidate In that utterance1. It In his view
that ho already stands above the law. In which
connection It is Interesting tn recall that when
arrested for speeding by a village officer he re
fused to accompany tho officer to fils magis
trate, haughtily asserting "I am governor, you
can reach me at the capltol."
Hut the governor ahould understand that be
ing a candldato for tho presidency docs not
privilege him to go about over tho country do
faming his opponents. He has charged an Im
possible thing and reiterated tho charge after a
man of excellent reputation whoso word is ac
cepted fully by gentlemen has denied It.
To put tho matter bluntly, Jim Cox or Will
Hays Is a liar. And it In very essential that tho
country know which. If tho democratic candi
date can prove his charge, ho can bo tho next
president of the United States. If he can't prove
It, he's a common scandal-monger with neither
svnso of responsibility or Justice nnd does not
desorve to be president of a common council.
Tho senato Investigating commltteo, preserved
ror Just such an eventuality, offciH him tho op
portunity to prove his charge under the estab
lished rules of evidence nnd law., For him to
dodge nnd evade, Instead of quickly grasping the
opportunity, Is for him to go a considerably way
towards convincing the country that ho la en
tirely Irresponsible ln his utterances.
Hut thero are othor Interests quite ns grave as
his. If ho does not elect to nppear voluntarily,
then tho common practice required that ha be
forced to appear nnd plead. For not only tho
republican party, but Us responsible officers have
been nsnalled viciously. Their rights demand
that their nccttser meet them face to faco before
this tribunal and there make good his chargm
or liquidate In damngos.
"I shall send tho matter to tho committee,"
said tho governor, a premonition of fear entering
his heart. How convenient that would be. Thero
would ho no opportunity for cross questioning,
no embarnHAmcnts at nil. "All of tho informa
tion I havo will be given to the publlo nnd
thereforo I do not job any uso In going before
the committee," said tho governor.
Could thero bo a more utter or childish dlsro-
gard of individual responsibility for scandalous
and libelous statements? After that one is quite
prcpured for tho next sentonce: "I think also
the committee should recognize that an a can
didate I should give It out in such manner as
I seo fit."
And doubtless It la a part of the "constitu
tional" frame of mind of this cnndldate that tho
senate Investigating commltteo should refuse to
hear, or at least believe, anything dcterlmcutal
to the democratic candidate or his cause, and
should do Its utmost to bolster up the libels such
candidate utters against his opponents.
It the Bcnato committee Is made of the stuff
we think It Is, It will bring Cox before It to
answer In a dignified and legal wny to the
charges he lion mads, even If It requires the
I sorvlces of a United States marwhal. Tho man
