Three names have thus far been
presented, those of General Wood,
Governor Lowden and Senator John
, son. Each wns nominated by his na
tive state. Governor Allen of Kansas
V named General Wood, Congressman
Rodenberg of Illinois presented the
name of Governor Lowden and C. S.
I Wheeler of California made tho nom-
I' inating speech for Senator Johnson.
I Each in turn was greeted by loud and
I prolonged demonstrations from tho
I floor of the hall. That the old
I breach between the regular and Pro-
I grcsBives has been forgotten was
( shown by the ovation given Uncle
I Joe Cannon, followed by the unan-
& imous adoption by Btanding vote of
death of Colonel Roosevelt.
The platform adopted contains a
plank covoring the League of Na

dicate the nature of that plank. A
feature new to national conven
tions was the active participation
of womcn in the work, Mrs.
Itoosevelt Robinson of New York

for General Wood and Mrs. Lester

who seconded tho nomination of Gov

VERSUS JE ME
Gov. Frank 0. Lowden Discusses
Their Relative Value in Pre
serving World Peace.
(By Gov. Frank O. Lowden.)
When the wur was over the
wholo world was in u stnto of sus
penso ns to what might happen
afterwnrd. During those strenuous
month's struggle when, the flower
of our young manhood was offering
itself upon tho battlefields of
Europe, tho whole world hoped that
in homo way out of that colossul
conflict might come a better inter
national understanding better inter
national relations, with tho poslbility
of loss frequent wars for tho future.
So to many of us it seemed thnt the
time was ripe for taking up the work
of the Hague international confer
ences, providing for judicial machin
eiy for the settlement of internation
al disputes, codifying international
law so far as it is possible, bringing
about closer relations between the
l nations, to the end that pence might
(prevail among the nations of the
I That wus tho aspiration of almost
every human heart. We have failed
to renlize that aspiration for tho
'renson thnt instead of adopting tho
idea of judicinl determination of
differences of a political alliance
among the nations wns created, and
when that alliance was created and
given tho name of tho League of
Nations it was seen by our people
that instead of preventing future
wars it was itself likely to prove the
breeder of moro wars.
So tho Republican pnrty in Wash
ington, tho majority of tho Repub
lican senntors in the capitol, decided
that such a covennnt must bo so
limited by reservation as to make
clear forever tho fundamental prin
ciples upon which our government
rests. It, therefore, adopted n resor
'vation preserving forever in all its
lintcgrgity tho Monroe Doctrine, thnt
doctrine under which for a hundred
yenrs wo had lived on terms of amity
It provided further that the sov
ereignty of tho United States
should bo preserved at Washington
It also provided that no American
soldier should ever cross tho seas
to engage in another war unless the
Congress of tho United States, se
lected by tho American people, so

Senator Smoot Serves Notice Hut H
Unimportant Material Will be H
Hereafter Excluded. H
ADVANCE NOTICE GIVEN , H
SENATORS MONTHS AGO H
Expected That the Saving Thus H
Effected Will Materially Relieve M
Stringency So Far As the Con- H
grcssional Record is Concerned. H
Senator Reed Smoot of Utah, who
ia perhaps tho most methodical and
industrious mnn in tho Senate, haa fl
: carried into effect n threat ho mado ,H
months ago. Ho has put a stop te H
. tho promiscous insertion in tho Con- 1
grcssional Record of documents and
articles, as well as long speeches that
wero never made in Congress. That , .
is, he has stopped it so far as the
Scnnto proceedings arc concerned;
over tho Houso ho has no control. The
cfTcct upon tho Congressional Record
which is the daily newspnper of Com-
grcss in full, is already noticeable.
Senator Smoot is chairman of the
Joint Committee on Printing. Ho has H
long been inveighing against tho ox- H
ponso of Congress of printing any- ''
thing nnd everything in tho Record
and just recently haa been warning H
tho Sennto about tho shortage of
print paper. But Senntors paid little H
attention nnd went steadily ahead, H
loading up the Record day after day
with matter that hnd nothing to de
with tho proceedings of Congress.
On March 1 Senator Smoot arose H
in his place and quietly announced H
that, beginning the following morn- H
ing, he would object to any outside ''' H
matter being printed in tho Record H
with thu., exception of resolution J H
from State Legislatures or Citj' H
"I want tho Senntors to know that H
thcro will bo no discrimination H
said he, "It will npply to every Sen- H
ntor. Tho only way Senntors will bo 11
allowed to get any such matter in ! H
thu Record from now on will bo by a H
vote of the Senate." H
On the very noxt day, Senator Me- H
Kellur tried the experiment of get- H
ting n newspaper article in tho Re- H
cord. All such insertions require H
unanimous consent and it has always H
been the practice of the Sennte to H
grant it. Senator Smoot immediately H
objected nnd the article did not go H
in. Since then he hns made two or H
three similar objections nnd now thorc H
I is n great diminuntion in attempts H
to load up the Record with odds nnd H
ends of various kinds. One result in H
that the printed proceedings of tho
Senate each day occupy considerably
less space than heretofore and the ;, H
Congressional Record is saving paper. H
To mnko such a reform absolute, of H
course, a Senator must be in his scat H
nil through tho sessions. He cannot H
loaf around in the cloakrooms with-
out having something put over in his H
absence. But thnt feature docs not fl
bother Scnntor Smoot, who is almost H
invariably on the floor during sessions H
anyhow. He follows the routine pro-
ccedings of the Senate more closely
than nny other member. Thcro is H
urgent need of paper economy, so far H
ns the Record is concerned. For four H
consecutive dnys last week it was M
printed nn four different kinds of M
paper. Brooklyn Eagle. M
in thnt wo did not take up the jH
grent work of tho Han'e confer- M
enccs whero thoy left off, nnd go on M
to the creation of international' jH
courts so that we might arbitrate H
our international differences rather M
thnn fight them ml on bloody bat- H
I still think we overlooked an op- M
portunlty that comes to a nation but jH
once in a century. If we had done H
that, today we would have in exist- r H
ence the machinery for adjusting H
these international differenced that H
now threaten tho penco of tho world. H
But the League of Nations without H
reservations, in the form in which it H
wns brought to this shore, would H
have created, in my opinion, a super- H
state, a stato which would havo over- H
como the American Republic. There- jH
foro these reservations insisted upon H
by tho Sennte of tho United States H
were righteous and just. H
We aro in favor of peace; we want H
the friendship of every nation on the H
face of tho globe; wo arc looking for ,, H
friends, but wo arc not looking for ' , 'H
partners. Wo prefer to maintain oar' H
own independenco and preserve our ' H
own sovereignty under tho dome of , H
our own capitol at Washington. - WSJ
