placed what he termed the blame for
democratic defeat about equally between
President Wilson and Governor Cox, in a
statement made here this evening. The
president, he said, 'laid the foundations
for the disaster and the governor com
pleted the structure "
"The American people want the gov
ernment to play Its part in the abolition
of war but they are indifferent as to
whether we are part of a league or part
01 an association ot nations," the state
ment said. "The real issue presented
by the democratic, party was not whether
we should cooperate with otner nations in
terested in peace, but whether we should
assume a moral obligation which had no
weight except as it suspended the right
of congress to act independently. The
nation will do its part in aiding to pre
vent war but It will not aurrender the
keeping of any foreign group the, right
to determine when we shall declare war.
Governor Cox, Instead of repairing the
injury done by the president, aggravated
the situation by the manner in which he
avoided domestic issues and misrepresent

me league issue, which he declared to
