Tho Illinois senator tin luted out
that thu election of Harreld in thu

on a platform of outright opposition
to too league was the first opportu
nuy American people pud for an K-
presMon on the league subject. Hnr
teld arrived In WashlHgton on No

taken to the senate cloak room and

Saw Writing on the Willi.
McCormick on that ocVnxlon nrc
dieted that tho election tit Harreld
would mean the defeat of tho loagtic.

Into a message from homo of the

ly democratic was construed by many
as an Indication of public sentiment
against thu league and resulted In
added nacKbonu to tho wavercrs an
well as deciding tho middle ground

out McCormick s prediction.
Shortly afier the election of Har

senate he received a buter from Hen
ntor McCormick recalling his proph.
cry nnd reiterating his belief that
Harreld s election was responsible
'You will remember, he satd
'that I told you that the news of your
election to congress carried a new
hope to the downright and outright
opponents of tho league covenant
and Inspired them with a new ccwr
aire. Your election confirms us In
our faith that the American peoplo
would understand tho covenant and
that it surrendered their sovereignty
In tho present as It pledged their
