Have Signed a Statement Pledging Support of Republi

No Alliance Should Be Entered Into That Would Bind
the United States as Would Article Ten of the Covenant
of the League Proposed by President Wilson.
New York, Oct.. 14 A statement wan
Uaued here tonight by 91 prominent
n a ho have advocated some form of
li.urnatwnal agreement announcing
U.it they would support Senator Hard
in, the republican nominee.
tilihu P.oot. Herbert Hoover, George
W WuVMam. Henry L. Stimson, A.
1-awrfnr Lowell, Henry W. Taft and
'liarlr K. Ittighea, were among- the
urnera of the statement which follows
in part :
The undersigned, who desire that the
United Ktatea shall do her full part In
association with the other civilized na
twn. to prevent war, have earnestly
ri,rtered how we may contribute most
effectively to that end, by our votes m
the coming election. '
The Question between the candidates
la whether we shall Join under an agree
ment containing the exact provision ne
gnttated by president Wilson at Paris,
r-r under an arreement which omits or
modifies some of those provisions which
ire very objectionable to great numbers
f the American people.
Af'er declaring that the democratic
platform and candidate stand unquali
fiedly for the agreement negotiated at
Paris without substantive modification,
while the republican platform "stands
for agreement among the nations to pre-,-rre
the peace of the world," the state
"Mr. Harding said In his speech of
" There are distinctly two types of
lntemat.ona! relationship. One is an of
fensive and defensive alliance of great
powers. The other type is a society of
free nations, or an association of free
nations, or a league of free nations ani
mated by consideration of right and jus
tice Instead of might and self Interest,
and not merely proclaimed an agency in
pursuit of peace, but so organised and
99 participated in as to make the act
ual attainment of peace a reasonable
possibility. Such an association I fa
vor with all my heart, and I would make
no fine distinction as to whom credit is
"Mr. Harding has since repeatedly re
affirmed the declarations of his speech.
In the moet positive terms.
The question accordingly is tint bj
inn a learue aad no league, tftit is
whether certain provisions in the pro
posed learue agreement shall be accept
ed unchanged or shall be changed.
"If the proposed changes In the Paris
agreement were captious or without sub
stantial grounds, one might question the
sincerity of their advocates. This, how
ever. Is not the case. 1
"The principal change proposed con
cerns Article Ten of the league cove
nant as negotiated at Taris. Mr. Wil
son declares this to he "the "heart of
the league' and the chief controversy is
"Article Ten provides an obligation of
the most vital Importance and It certain
ly binds every nation entering into it to
go to war whenever war may be neces
sary to preserve the territorial integrity
or political Independence of any cham
ber of the league against external ag
"It Is Idle to say that congress has
power to refus, to authorise such a war,
for whenever the treaty calls for war a
refusal by congress to pass the neces
sary reeo.ntion would be a refusal by
our government to keep the obligation
s fthe treaty. The . alternative would
be war or a breach of the solemnly
p!e!rd faith of the United States.
"We cannot regard such a provision
as necessary or useful for a league to
"We have reached the conclusion that
the true course to bring America Into
an effective league to preserve peace Is
not by insisting with Mr. Cox upon the
BTrsnre of such a provision as Arti
rte Ten thus prolonging the unfortunate
situation created by Mr. Wilson's Insist
ence upon that article; but by frankly
calling upon the other nations to agree
to changes In the proposed agreement
whWh will obviate this vital objection
and ether objections less the subject of
Tor this course we can look only to
the republican party and Its candidates;
th democratic party and Mr. Cox are
bound not to follow It. The republican
party Is bound by every consideration
of rwl faith to pursue such a course
nnltl the declared object is attained.
The conditions of Europe make It es
sential that the stabilizing effect, of the
treaty already made between the Euro
Pan powers shall not be lost by them
and that the necessary changes be made
by changing the terms' of that treaty
rather than by beginning entirely anew.
"That course Mr. Harding Is willing
to follow for he said in his speech of
" 1 would take and combine all that
la good and excise til that Is bad from
bo'h organizations' (the court and the
"Vie therefore believe that we can
Host effectively advance the cause of
pternational cooperation to promote
rieeae by supporting Mr. Harding for
exertion to the presidency"

The president's Mexican policy he de

republican party he was "opposed to it."
He added that in due time the nation
would find a way safely and practically
to organize the conscience, of the world
The senator's arraignment of the demo

the theme of a nighjt address i n the
Stigmatizing the state department as
representins the "lowest possible ebb of
government service" fn building foreign
commerce, the candidate declared that "a
complete new policy" was necessary if
America was to take its place in Inter
national trade. The diplomatic service,
he said,' had been' "demoralized" by the
appointment of men "some of whom had
no other qualifications than that of being
very large campaign contributors.
The first task of the nation 'in' work
ing for world peace, he said, was to "set
its face toward an international associa
tion," under which "each may be free to
express and maintain its own nationalism
but in which mutual commercial and
trade problems may be worked out." He
outlined again his. i;Ianto purine nation's
foreign loans into negotiable form.
The candidate's Mexican poliev first
was outlined to a crowd of several thou

speeches during the day. He declared

signature, it was stated today mat tne
delegates,- representing - the foremost
banking interests or tne uniteu states,
Great Britain,- France and Japan, have
inserted a new clause defining the atti
tude of the ce a artium itself ' towards
The precise language of the clause fol
lows : .
- "The said national groups are of the
opinion that the Jnterests of the Chinese
people tan in existing circumstances best
be served by the co-operative action of
tthe various banking groups representing
the investment . interests of their re
spective countries in procuring for the'
Chinese ; government, the capital neces
sary for a programme of economic re
construction and improved, communica
tions. With these objects In view the' re
spective national groups are jirepered to
participate on equal terms in such un
dertakings as may be calculated to assist i
China in the establishment or her great
public utilities and to these ends to wel
come the co-operation " -of Chinese capi
tal.".. This statement by the consortium as to
Its aims-In China was issued in -response
to questions and criticisms that have been
raised, here and in China. Its sponsors
asserted that there has been an "errone
ous idea deliberately fostered on the part
of certain interests imimical to co-operative
effort in ehina that the object of
the consortium was' to foist some par
ticular scheme of development upon Chi
na and to impose loans upon her; thus
obtaining some special position of advan

Members of the consortium emphasiz

groups have undertaken its organization
solely at the request of the four govern

To Scrutinize Applications
For Withdrawal of Liquors
From Bonded Warehouses.
Washington. Oct. 14 Reorganization
of the prohibition enforcement bureau
to .afford closer scrutiny of applications
to withdraw liquors from .bonded ware
houses was announced tonight by Com
missioner Kramer. The change was
made necessary, the' commissioner said,,
by th increase in work involved.
Two new divisions were created sup
planting that which formerly examined
applications, one will pass upon appUca-1
tions for the manufacture of alcoholic ,
products, determine all non-beverage
uses of intoxicating liquors, fix the stand
ards for manufactured articles contain
ing 'alcohol and conduct trade investiga
tions to determine whether articles per
miteed to be manufactured are produced
in. accordance with the law. The other
division will have supervision of -the con
struction and operation of industrial ' al
cohol and denaturing plants.
It is planned also that the division
having charge of industrial alcohol will
devote some tim to the development- of
uses for denatured alcohol by Jatoora
tory and research work. Its functions
also include the analysis of many manu
factured -artic'.es .which contain alcohol
to determine whether they are comply
ing with the regulations. ' ' "'

Rockhhl, . S. C, Oct 14 The United
States has one of the best, banking sys
tems in the world, and "under it I never
expect to see another panic", George E.
Roberts, vice president of The National
City Bank of New York, declared here
tonight in an aefdress before a gather.ng
of business men in which he analyzeu
the credit situation.
Mr. Roberts said that the present situ
ation is due to the "'aggregate demand
for credit by all the industries - and all
lines of business beyond the -ability of
the banking -system to supply.'.' Such
conditions, he. added, result from "the
war." The restriction of credit is not
responsible for the. decline of wheat and
cotton, the Epeaker asserted. "The pov
erty of the world, the low-buying pow
er of Europe,, and the high .exchange
rates, are the principal factors in the
break in these, prices."
