The candidate bpent considerable
time at the points of his itinerary
and spoke at Steele, Braggadocio and
Hayti. About 2."i0 persons assembled
to hear him at Steele. At Hayti
the high school auditorium, which

iilled. About 150 heard him at
The speaker was introduced at
Steele and Braggadocio by Kverett
Reeves, Caruthersville attorney, and
at Hayti by S. V. Medling, also a Ca
ruthersville lawyer. In introducing
I Long at Braggadocio, Reeves, who is
a partner of R. L. Ward, Democratic
candidate for Congress from the
Fourteenth District in 1920, said
I "Jim Reed, speaking at Cape Girar
deau in 1920, held up a copy of the
Democratic platform and shouted:
'This is what they are standing for;
do you stand for it? I do not.'"
This, Reeves declared, showed Reed's
degree of loyalty to his party.

paigning with an address here to
night. He was introduced here by
Col. H. M. Phillips of Caruthersville,
a veteran of the Confederate army,
who said he shouted for Horatio A.
Seymour in 18GS.
Phillips briefly reviewed Reed'F
record and declared that he was not
a true Democrat He described him
as a Benedict Arnold and a Judas
Iscariot. Judas Iscariot, he said,
hanged himself, but there are trait
ors today who have not done so
Phillips declared that he was bitter
ly opposed to Reed, but had voted a
straight ticket since 1868 and would
vote for Reed and work for him it
he was nominated.

Jcfierson and warned his hearers of
their duty to future democracy.
"Our party has been left to us as
a heritage," he paid "after jears of
development, and it is our duty to
bequeath it to our children and our ,
children's children not only Intact,
but broadened and improved." j
Declaring that he based his ligures
on statistics in the departments of j
the Navy and the Secretary of Com
merce of the Harding administra
tion, the candidate ubserted that ,
America lost ?6, 000, 000, 000 during1
a twelve-month period because of the .
change in Americas foreign policy
when the Harding administration
came into power. '
He compared the efforts of the '
Wilson administration to protect
the nation from the difficulties '
which now confront it with the sys-1
tern of levees constructed along the
Mississippi to protect the fields from
He declared that Borah, Lodge, '
Knox and Johnson composed the
"dynamite crew," who undertook to
destroy the dikes the Wilson admin
istration erected to protect the in
terest of the American people. '
Long next took the three-power
treaty and reviewed the history of
the futile light for its adoption. He
referred in caustic terms to the rati
fication of the Republican four
power treaty and summarized the
Republican treaty attitude as evi
dence of "insincerity in the original
opposition and inconsistent conduct
since that time."
The speaker described the Repub
lican "isolation" policy as "that pe
culiar experiment In legislation."
"They would have us think," he de
clared, "that this isolation policy
was indorsed by that great galaxy of
earlier statesmen, Washington, Jef
ferson, Monroe and Jackson.
"Yet," he continued, "Jelferson
started our expansion policy. He
purchased the very land on which
we now stand. This foresight gavs
Impetus to the national policy under
which America has become the
world's greatest power."
Long cautioned his hearers to re
member that the Isolation policy had
its inception in a Republican Senate
in the Wilson administration.
Turing to the tariff program,
Long pointed out flagrant Haws and
defects and declared that largely be
cause of it a Democratic Congress
will be elected in November. And
that, he said, "will be the forerunner
of a Democratic administration In
Long's tribute to Wilsoni to whom
he referred as the "wounded sol
dier," wus heartily applauded by his
audience, which contained a large
number of women.
Long, in his talks during the day,
emphasized the effects of ''dilatory"
Republican methods in dealing with
German reparations and Republican
foreign trade policies on the cotton
market. Ho urged young Democrats
to rally to tho standard and sough,
to Impress upon them the urgen'
need of party loyalty. He reviewed
:hc history of the party since its or!
gin by Thomns Jefferson and pointed
to the constructive work done by
that political organization.
Long, in these three speeches,
dwelt upon his rcord as a Democrat
and contrasted It with Reed's record,
railing attention to the fact that he
(Long) had never opposed the pint
forms of Ills party and had always
supported the party nominees.
Pemiscot county is normally a
rock-ribbed Democratic stronghold.
The Long forces claim it will give
their candidate a 600 majority out
of a Democratic vote of between 5500
and 6000. The Reed men cluim their
man will carry tho county by at
least 500. Among the supporters of

Penetrating Southeast Missouri for

rutted States Senate, Breckinridge
Long, addressing an audience of
nearly 2000 here tonight, construed
his indictment of the German repa
lation and foreign trade policies ol
the Republican administration to ap
ply directly to the cotton market,
and declared that American cotton
cannot be sold in Europe because Re
publicans blocked plans of the Wil
son administration to keep Germany
solvent and to revive trade between
Germany and America. He in
formed his hearers that cotton raised
in Pemiscot county costs Germans
$9 a pound In America and termed
the cotton schedule In the proposed
Republican tariff bill "one of the
most pernicious pieces of legislation
Pemiscot county is a cotton pro
ducing county and has been sorely
hit by the depression of the past two
years. Continuing on the subject
of cotton prices, Long said: "Among
the fine staple products of the Missis
sippi Valley is cotton. Our foreign
policies used to be so formulated
that the products of America were
sold abroad. You used to sell large
quantities of cotton throughout Eu
rope. Our foreign policies were so
framed and conducted that it was
possible to sell in those countries
enough of the surplus produced in
America to make it profitable to
raise crops at home. Since the
change of forign policies and estab
lishment of that euphonious and un
profitable policy of isolation, we
have lost the market where we used
to sell the goods we raised.
"We lost ?718,000,000 in the cot
ton business and you wondered
why the price of cotton dropped. We
raise in this part of America 41 per
cent of the world's cotton, although
we have but 5 per cent of the people
of the world. You raise it to sell to
the other 95 per cent, or used to do
so. 'But you lost those markets
when you voted to change the ad
ministration. "Under the last administration
we tried to arrange the German re
paration indemnity so that a 3um
would not be demanded of Germany
greater than she could pay. That
was tn order that she might con
tinue as a nation and as an economic
and industrial unit. If there were
demanded sums greater than her
ability to pay, her credit and Indus
trial stability would be jeopardized.
She would not be able to do busi
ness with other countries. Mr.
Harding was a member of the Senate
then and was one of the band who
advocated isolation and prevented
the carrying out of this policy.
"The consequence largely of this
Is that Germany cannot buy from us
ns she would have done. It costs a
man In Germany $9 a pound to buy
cotton with German money in Amer
ica. Naturally, he doesn't buy it
Of course wo don't sell to him. Of
course wo have on hand more than
we can use, and the prices though
somewhat now recovered, fell to
levels which were below the cost of
"And now, after all that, these
Republicans are trying to pass a
tariff bill with rates higher than
evor known, and part of it on the
cotton goods. The cotton schedule
is one of the most pernicious pieces
of logislutlon ever attempted. It Is
for the benefit of tho cotton manu
facturers and not for the benefit of
tho growers. The manufacturers
liyo in Now England and are benefi
ciaries of this legislation, while you
who grow, all of you, men and
women who use cotton goods, dress
es, shirts, handkerchiefs, clothes and
all, are those who pay the bill."

SHOWS SPIRIT OF FAIRNESS.
Bob Sharp of Caruthersville, Re
publican candidate for Collector, was
in Hayti Tuesday and paid this office
a call. Mr. Sharp requested The
Missouri Herald to state that, owing
to the illness of his opponent, T. R.
Cole, he would cease from making
a general canvass, as he had in
tended to do. He does this out of a
spirit of fairness, for he says he
would not knowingly take advan
tage of the misfortunes of his adver
sary. This will explain to those vot
ers who Mr. Sharp docs not sec the
reason why such is the case. He
will however, he says, be very ap
preciative of all the support given
him. The writer of these remarks
has known Bob for some fifteen or
more years, and has always found
him acting the same spirit of fair
ness he has shown in this case.
Besides this, he is a man fully quali
fied to fill the office.
