WHERE SENATOR REED FAILS.
That part of Senator Reed's
speeches in which he pleads for the
preservation of local self-government
and the constitutional rights of citi
zens and the States against Federal
encroachment is unassailable, but.
other parts of his speeches are inde
fensible. In his defense of himself against
the charge that he is a destructlon
ist and has been in the opposition
constantly the Senator uses us an il
lustration his opposition to a large
army and navy personnel and to
universal military training. He
claims thut he stood between the
country and a large standing army
but that it is owing to his efforts
that there is not a large army and
navy and universal training. He

and made a small armament possible.
Senator Reed was the only Sena
tor except one other who fought the
disarmament treaty which enabled
us to quit building a great navy and
to reduce our naval forces. His de
feat has made a small army possible.
In policy Senator Reed has been a
consistent and persistent Irrecon
any kind. He has denounced all tho
nations with which we have tried
to come into agreements and under
standings to maintain peaco and
minimize the danger of war.
If Senutor Reed's policy were in
force at Washington we would now

Tourists are out by tho thousands
now, and many of our own people
are joining in the hot-weather pil

course, will be forced to remain nt

"Did you elect mo to go to Wash
ington and tako orders from a man
from Nov Jersey," asks Senator
Reed in one of his speeches, or
words to that effect. Well, for ono
who voted for you, Jimmy, wo will
say wo voted for you to go thore and
work WITH your President instead
of against him. As you saw fit to
work against him every time an op
portunity presented itself, we are
going to vote against you this year,
and do everything reasonable to get
all others to do the same. The last
resort of political pettifoggery is to
prime one's hearers with sectional
prejudice by such expressions as,
"You don't need this fellow from an
other State to come here and tell
you how to vote." As though thu
country wore not one. Suppose some
one had told Mr. Reed that when he
went to Wisconsin to tell them what
Republican to vote for. Hev had
less business butting into that cam
paign than has Woodrow Wilson,
the acknowledged leader of the Dsm-
ocratlc party, for trying to get the
party to save its face and life by

arch-ranter, hero in Missouri. Ed.

Lippard, the former Campbell man,
who was arrested recently on a
charge of having forged a govern
ment compensation check, has been
setonced to one year and a day In tho
Federal prison at Fort Leavenworth,
The check had been made to John
A. Provanco of Campbell, a former
soldier friend of Lippard. Lippard
pleaded guilty to tho charge against
him, confessing that ho had signed
Provanco's name to tho check and
cashed it at tho Tower Grovo Bank
in St. Louis on May 27, 1921. After
a search of a year tho secret service
men traced tho crime to Lippard be
cause of a peculiarity in the hand
writing. Because Lippard was a disabled
veteran of tho World War, the judge
announced that he had made tho
sentence as light as possible.
