CROWDS RVRGED ABOUND THE HARDING HOMESTEAD Marion, O., Oct. 18. The long succes sion of political pilgrimages to Senator Harding's front porch reached high ud; today in a gathering that dctuged Mari an and swir.ed about the vicinity of the Harding home in a roaring human whxi lool. So rreat was the crowd that It fringes Wilson s suggestion , paca the sireet a block away, and question, as to what protection America can devise against presidential blunders if Senator Harding should chance to be elected." Governor Cox reiterated that Senator Harding had taken thirteen variant league positions and "the democratic nom inee predicted that the American people would not approve an attempt to "wiggle into the presidency." Governor Cox ask ed whether, if elected. Senator Harding, in carrying out his proposal for "plural government," . would consult v with . . the Johnson-Borah or other groups. ' - That a. "storm, a cylcone, of protest from republican men and women, has followed Senator Harding's Des Moines speech, was asserted by Governor Cox to all of his audiences. v. "They've followed him until they are dizzy and couldn't any more," the gover nor declared. . Charges that the opposition was pre venting the voters from readins the league covenant were, repeated by the governor and he reiterated that, if elect ed, he believed he could asree with the senate upon ratification. Restating that he would accept any reservations not harmful to the' league's basic principle, the governor said the verdict . Nov. 2 would be a "people s mandate."

Delegations from many states and rep resenting many special groups were in the crowd, which paraded to the Hard ing residence shouting and singing, and greeted the candidate and his wife T-fc-h as upmad of political, enthusiasm. More than a score of bands marched with the paraders and serenaded the nominee for two hours after his address, while he and Itrs. Harding stood on their front steps and shook hands twith a stream of visit ers. . The senator's sp.-ech. largely devoted to a non-political discussion of the obli gations of the American voters, was ad dressed particularly to those who are to exercise the ballot this year for the first time. He pronounced use of the fran chise a duty as well as a privi ege. and urged that the two party system be pre served as the most practical means of se curlng efficient government.

Doz ens of confidential letters between Mr. Taft. George W. Wiclcersham Theodore Marburg i and others were given. In his summary, Mr. Hunt says that Herbert ,S. Houston testified before the committee that he had talked at times with the German chancellor ; Lord Robert Cecil and David Lloyd George in regard to the United States entering the league of nations, and that Edward A. Filene, of lloston, who has been abroad -on a similar mission, now "in Germany . on a mission to get Germany into the league.' "The correspondence and data which follow bear out the charge .-which I am about to make." Mr. Hunt's report says, "that this organization, has through its officials, by correspondence and confer ences talked with various officials '' of foreign governments about getting this and other countries into the league of nations peace treaty all of which my estimation, is in violation of the Lo gan act Mr. Hunt also charged that William H. Short, secretary of the league, took from the files certain letters between Mr. Short and George V. -Wickersham in which Mr. Short proposed a cam paign in the interest of Governor Cox, and Mr. Wickersham "agreed in part. Mr, Short refused to give up the letters. the report states, cn the ground that they were personal; A letter from Mr. Wickersham to Mr. Short, dated July 30, 1920, says: Thank you, my dear Mr. Short for Arthur Sweetser's memo. It is .very log leal and sound. How much better was Governor Coolidge's speech of accept ance than that of Senator Harding.' Other-- correspondence shows that For mer President Taft threatened to resign irom tne presidency or tne league it it took a partisan part in politics and re iterated his belief that Senator Hard ing will be elected and that "the one hope of securing the league with the Lodge reservations is . through the re publican candidate." ' The Hunt report says that the league to enforce peace spent $2,500 to finance a letter sent by Samuel Gompers to 50,000 local unions asking the union members to bring pressure to bear on senators to have them vote for the league of nations. Other items of expenditure include bills for publication of advertisements in 44 cities throughout the country, and two bills, one of J24.583.25 and the oth er $10,534.22 from the Western News paper Union. A letter from "Theodore Marburg of Baltimore to , Secretary Short, dated Aug. 12, 1920, says that' the "most direct road to ratication (of the treaty) is the complete defeat of the political party which has Euffered the conscienceless senate band to ride its neck." Another letter from Mr. Marburg to Mr. Short, written at Baltimore on April 29, 1920, discussed an article on the league of nations, written bj Ham ilton Holt and added: I strongly urge that the article in question be reprinted in the type and stylo of a newspaper clipping that from the Times, preferably and sent to every delegate to the democratic and republican conventions before the meet ing of the conventions.
