W 11.1.1 AMS - - Editor THINK STRAIGHT Anybody who knows anything at all. knows perfectly well that the elec tion of Cox means no League of Na tions at all. Mr. Cox has repeatedly declared that he will stand pat for the Wilson League. It has been clearly demonstrated that the Wilson League can never pas- the Senate of the United States, no matter how the Sen atorial elections go on November 2d, That means simply another dead lock and no League at all. Henci the ut t€T insincerity, not to >;* hypocrisy of anybody who claims th.u a vote for ‘ ox i- a vote for thi League of Na tions. Such a statement can come only from one who is woefully ignor ant f public affairs, or wbo is wilfully striving to make polltienf capital cuv (f a deliberate misrepresentation. GOO REACTION \m ISM OR TIU 11 \ IS ION. ' • vernor Cox. contemplating a vlg- , < : effort to capture Ohio's electoral | v< , has chosen to rest his chances en j his ability to prove Senator Harding a “reactionary." Ohio, be it noted at once, an ex- ' ceilent State in which to test out the strength of that issue. The word ‘'reactu nary" just as “progressive.” I k-.s in general a multitude of mean ings; for illustration of it. Governor • 1 >; has a wealth ■ f material to draw upon, familiar to every ÜBloan, for it is furnished by Ohio’s Constitution, ; ‘he adeptioi < f which Mr. < ox vigor ously urged and Mr. Maiding as vig i re asly opnosed. 1 .ling the period 1;•1 11 tr. ru 1 i ■ ept . • inrry a political reform that so,tight its object ! in the wholesale re vamping of the mu- I chinery of government. Then was created "the initiative." "the referen- 1 burn." "the direct primary,” “the di- : lie: Li esuicntial preference primary." I While.the wave was at its very height ! and before a single one of these inno vations had been thoroughly tested nut ; in any state and long before any one ef them had really been perfected, Ohio held a Constitutional convention and that convention adopted and sub mitted to the people for ratification a ■ draft of a Constitution that incorpor ated these us yet experimental re forms one and all. At the time we are frank to confess, the Ohio draft was accepted quite generally us “a model Constitution.” Whoever was for it was a progressive; whoever was against it. was a reactionary, and his name was anathema. Senator Hard, ing was against it. Governor Cox finds a sufficient bill < f | a, tic.ilars for the indictment he now I ringing against hi., opponent in trie i.u ta'.ion of this .-taiemen- 'ey Senator Hard ing. made (ho day after the Constitu tion's ratification at the polls; Ohio, 'y a majority vote, has turned from its i Id organic law and its safeguards and voted for radi calism. We have ended political convention- and their deliberations. We retain the legislative body sim ply as a form, and have substituted lawmaking at the ballot box. We have declared property rights sub ject to the law of those who have none and opened away for Social istic rule and reign in municipality and State. The revolution in Ohio nates from September 3. Our own notion is that the radical victory of Tuesday will be followed by conflict after conflict until a Socialistic rule is thoroughly established. Ohio has broken her moorings. The revolu tion is on. This may be reaetionaryism. It seem- more like prescience. The eight years which hate since elapsed have disclosed as many weaknesses as mer its in the primaries system. Today it has unreserved support only from the sort of man to whom the mere word “reform” is magic. We have all be gun to look twice at new propositions for the initiative an If put into Constitutions tu all, they are put in under such safeguards as will prevent their invocation under tiny save the most pressing circumstances. But Senator Harding hardly stops at objection; t<> this and that specific “reform.” He showed in this para grai n a true perception of the direc tion.- in which “reforms” of that char acter were collectively carrying us. Not many of us saw in them at the limi a menace to the principle of re presentative government. But we have lived to see it since, and to see its natural result in the growing tirn orousness of Legislatures, in growing reliance of executives upon appeals to [ unorganized popular opinion, in a 1 process of reversion to the “town meeting" principle of government, in increasing contempt for constitutions and constitutional procedure.

ARE VOl ON HIS NOTE? “The platform of the Democratic j party i- a promissory note.” says Governor Cox. "I shall see that it Is i paid in full, every dollar auu .very i cent.” Which means that, if electee: ! President, Mr. Cox will exact from the American people payment in full for ail the excesses of Democratic misrule included in that platform. Me- , fore the public i- called upon to write , an endorsement of that note in No vember. u is well that the full extent of the proposed obligation lie matte known. Here are some of th eitems included in the total: 1. Acceptance of all the obligations of the league of nations covenant, vhich, if adhered to, means the im mediate raising of billions of dollars and the sacrifice of American soldiers and sailors to restore peace at ap proximately twenty-two points on the earth's surface where wars are now raging. 2. Acceptance of a mandate over Armenia costing hundreds of millions of dollars and necessitating the main tenance of a huge army thousands ot ' mile.- from our shores. b.
