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."

ens of confidential letters between Mr.

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

"The correspondence and data which

Mr. Hunt also charged that William

from the files certain letters between
Mr. Short and George V. -Wickersham
in which Mr. Short proposed a cam

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

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
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
