Ohio, Oct. 19.?Republican ! campaign methods were severely con? demned by Franklin D. Roosevelt in an address before an audience which filled . Eagle's Hall here to-night. As an example of what he termed "the deliberately unfair attitude of cer : tain Republican managers and of a scc ? tion of the Republican press," he de ! clarcd local Republican newspapers as ; well as several others throughout the ! state and country had intentionally I given little space or none at all in I their news columns to his speeches and , those of Governor Cox and had played i up those of the opposition.

Oct. 19.?Criticisms of Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, and Senator Harding were made to-day by Governor Cox during his tour of Massachusetts and New Hampshire cities and ending with a large meeting to-night on Boston Common. The Democratic Presidential candi? date denounced Senator Lodge as "the arch conspirator of the ages" because of his fight against the League of Na? tions. Reiterating that Mr. Lodge headed "a conspiracy to strangle the treaty to death" through the round robin, Governor Cox uiv ? his Boston audience to repudiate Mr. Lodge's lead? ership and retire him to private life as : soon as possible. To his New Hamp? shire audiences Governor Cox urged ! defeat of Senator Moses, Republican, because he signed the round robin. Cox's denunciation of Lodge in Con? cord and Manchester was followed by hisses. Senator Harding was heaped with sarcasm and ridicule by Governor Cox in virtually every address of the day concerning the incident between Presi? dent Wilson and the Senator regarding the latter's statement on the French attitude for a new association of na? tions. Says Harding Tried to Deceive "The facts justify the conclusion that Senator Harding has stupidly, though deliberately, attempted to de? ceive the people of the United States," Governor Cox declared. Reciting Mr. Harding's explanation of his Des Moines speech rejecting the league, Governor Cox added: "He must think the American peo? ple very stupid. He continues to say that they don't understand him." Expressing belief that a French author anil humorist was Senator Harding's source of information re? garding French sentiment upon a new association of nations, and comment? ing upon Senator Harding's letter to President. Wilson, Governor Cox said, sarcastically: "Poor Senator Harding has been misunderstood again. Jt. is a pathetic thing that he suffers so much from the dullness of the American people, in? cluding newspaper editors and leaders among partisans and opponents." Speaks Exclusively on League The league was virtually the ex? clusive theme of Governor Cox, and his Boston Common speech to-night made a total of ten speeches. He spoke at Springtield, Worcester, Lowell. Lynn and Cambridge, Mass, the latter at the Harvard Union?and at Nashua, Manchester, Suncopk and Concord, N. H. The heights of his attack upon Sen? ator Lodge were reached by the Demo? cratic candidate to-night on the Com? mon. Expressing happiness over speak? ing on "the first forum of America dedicated to free speech and free as? semblage," Governor Cox said he de? sired "to remove clouds and confusion" regarding the league. These, the Gov? ernor asserted, "were set up in a partisan plot:, instigated and led by the arch conspirator of the ages, Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts." Saying that Governor Coolidge had introduced Senator Lodge in Boston as "famous everywhere," Governor Cox continued: "1 have just completed a pilgrimage from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back again, visiting almost every state in the Union. I can testify to the truth of the Governor's statement. Senator Lodge must be known to every man and woman in every city and vil? lage in the land, for wherever and whenever I have mentioned his name it has been recognized and greeted, not-with cheers but with jeers, not with applause but wilh hisses and loud cries of 'Shame! Shame! Shame!' Judging from this continuously re? peated experience I should be disposed to suggest, even to a Boston audience, that it would have been more accurate to have said that the Senator is 'no? torious' everywhere rather than that he is 'famous everywhere.'" Dr. Eliot Defends League Governor Cox was delayed in his ar? rival at Harvard Union and the meet i ing was opened with an address by Dr. , Charles W. Kliot. who for forty years '? was president of the university. Dr. Kliot, who received an ovation ; from the undergraduates, defended the I league with a vigor that belied his j nearly eighty-seven years. He declared ! that the statement recently signed by j thirty-one distinguished Republicans i and friends of the league misrepre | sented both the Democratic platform ? and its candidates. How the thirty-one 1 gentlemen could have signed the state ! ment was a mystery to him, he said. President Lowell of Harvard was lone of the thirty-one signers of the ' statement attacked by Dr. Eliot, and ' the speaker's reference to the motive ; for the statement as something mys i terious to him evoked Loth cheers and I hisses.

President Wilson's continuance of his war policies two years after the armis? tice is an assumption of autocratic power which threatens free institu? tions, Governor Calvin Coolidge told Kentuckians here to-night. "We, the most peaceful people in the world, find ourselves still at. war, and we will., hold responsible those who from pride of purpose have kept us in this unhealthy and unnatural state," j the Governor said to a vast audience which greeted him here at the end of the second day of his 2,100-mile tour i through Kentucky, Tennessee, North : Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. The attitude of the people as the | Governor reiterated his attacks on the Wilson Administration in speeches de? livered in the mountain districts was shown in the applause which he every? where evoked. The Governor contend? ed that the voters were seeking a 1 change not only because of waste and extravagance in government, but be 1 cause they now realized that one-man I power in government affairs was de , termined upon before the war. Autocracy Antedated War "Before the war, as after the war, 'the Executive invaded directly and in I directly the properly independent func? tions of the legislative branches of the government," Governor Coolidge said. "Before the war, as after the war, do? mestic and foreign policies were in? augurated which violated sound prin? ciples." Women came out in _:reat numbers '. to greet the Republican nominee. At ; Corbin they provided a big demonstra? tion, headed by a hand. As a tribute quantities of grape juice were put on the train by women residents of a ' district once famous for its moon s ii ine. Wehster P. Huntington, editor of The | Toledo 'finies, who described himself ! as a lifelong Democrat and the or? ganizer of Cox clubs in Ohio and Ken? tucky, announced that he would sup? port the Republican ticket. He joined ' the Coolidee party at Corbin. In his speech here to-niHU Governor Cool? idge said in part : "We refuse to abandon one jot or tittle of self-government.. We will not permit those we nut into power, wheth? er a man or a rn'oup or a party, to continue a course which, we apprehend, will gradually sap our civic strength and ultimately destroy our free in? stitutions. We will not allow ambition to assume control of our liberties. We ; propose to prevent class creation 1 whether of wealth or of labor, malad? ministration which wreaks injustice, I enactment of laws which are not for the promotion of the general welfare, expediency in the determination of our policies, extravagance which dissipates our savings and plunges us into unnec? essary and burdensome debt. Seizure of Power Condemned "We emphatically condemn invasion by one branch of the government of the powers and duties of another branch. We will r?pudiait those who make solemn promises in our name which they neglect or refuse to ob? serve, and who seek to commit us to adventure upon uncharted seas without i counsel with others equally responsible to us, and which our common sense warns us to be perilous to our exist? ence. "Arbitrary measures confined only to ? the war period may be excused on the ground of war necessity and war con? tusion. In such a grievous time, free? dom, to be preserved, must submit to autocracy. We can then afford to over? look assumption of power if in the general interest and designed to secure the end desired. "But as we look back over the last eight years we find the war merely emphasized, not provoked, the violence done our institutions and our policies. Before the war, as after the war, the Executive invaded directly and indi? rectly the properly independent func? tions of the legislative branch of the government, Before the war, as after tiie war, domestic and foreign policies were inaugurated which violated sound tradition. "We demand that our government shall function as it was designed to function, its three coordinate branches moving within their respective orbits as defined by the Constitution, free from invasion by one into the power and the authority of the other, and each and ;:!! responsible only to the people. "What we want in office is a man ' who is sincere, who is honest, who is candid even to admitting '..e is wrong and, above all, who lias an open mind. Such a man 1 commend to you in the nominee of our party, Warren G. Har? ding." New England Worsted Mills Announce 15% CnX in Wa?es LOWELL, Mass., Oct. 19.?The Silesia mills, m North ChelmSford, a branch of the Cnited States Worsted Company, to-day announced a cut in wages of 15 per cent, to become effective next Mon? day.

Whitehouse & Hardy BROADWAY at 40th STREET NEW YORK METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE BUILDING Wilson, Power-Jealous, Ruined League, Taft Says Only Hope for Peace Declared To Be Harding; Cox Called a Shifty Politician CHICAGO, Oct. 19.?Former Presi? dent William Howard Taft, in an ad? dress at Northwestern University to? night, said that Senator Harding had made.it clear that this country should help 'in an association of nations to prevent war, and that only by election ol. the Republican nominee could real progress be made toward bringing the United States into such an association. He denounced, the Wilson Administra? tion, saying "the President had "de? stroyed his own league through jeal? ously for power," and termed Gov? ernor Cox, the Democratic nominee, a "shifty politician." "The issue of the campaign is whether we shall approve the Wilson Administration,'' said Mr. Taft. "The question, is what can be done under the rules of the game?under the con : litutional provisions?to bring the Lnited States into an arrangement with ether nations to prevent war. It seems to me that in the. existing situation Mr. Harding's election is the only means of securing this. "President Wilson, by insisting on Article X, has destroyed his own league and Mr. Cox proposes to do the same thing. The only hope of making prog? ress toward a League of ?Nations to secure peace is, therefore, by the elec? tion of Senator Harding. ?-?? Ruling on School Budget Is Called Peril by Wallstein Citizens Union Counsel Say$ Recent Court Decision Favoring Estimate Board Will Cost the City Mone\ Leonard M. Wallstein, counsel fo: the Citizens Union and attorney fo: Walter Frank in the proceedings t( : compel the Board of Estimate to in ? elude in the tentative budget for 192 items requested by the Board of Edu cation, yesterday issued a statemen in which he asserted Justice McAvoy' ruling against the motion for a per emptory mandamus to compel inclusio i of the appropriation will eventual! entail unnecessary expense upon th city. The statement says, in part: "The public should not be deceivec The Board of Education must hav more for next year than the mandator appropriation of the 4.9 mills tax viel | in order to keep the schools goinp j The additional sum will have to b ? paid by the residents of the city i ! any event. The policy of the Boar lot" Estimate means that the taxpayer ? will have to pay more than if adi ! quate appropriation were contained i I the first instance in the budget. Thi is so because either the Legislatur I will levy a state-wide tax, and in sue instance the City of New York a ways pays a portion thereof in e> cess of what it receives, or th?; di: ference will be financed by short ten bonds at the same extortionate inte I est rates, to the profit of privat I bankers, which have already coi j tributed to the hiph dein servie charge of more than $44,000,00 which, among other items, must 1: carried in the 19l_'l budget. "Worse than that, the policy of tl Board of Estimate will mean that tl Board of Education must, from tin t3 time, submit to emergency requcs for additional appropriations unie: the schools are to be closed. Such r quests in the past have afforded Com troller Craig opportunity, which 1 has never failed to employ, to han string and cripple the Board of Kd cation's work. He is even now def, I inti the majority vote of the Board ? 1 Estimate in failing to pay ou j standing obligations of the Board i ! Education. It is easy to foresee th;: i during the whole of next year, the will be continuous bickering betwei j the Board of Education and the Com | troller, to the great detriment of tl j public school system of the city.

Y., last night Governor Cox said: "I dare Sen? ator Harding to tell America publicly, whether or not the representative of \ France was Maurice de Kobra, of Paris. If this be true, and I have strong rea? sons for believing it is, I wish to re? mind you of Senator Harding's oft repeated assurances that he intended to take counsel always with others. W.e have here an instance of the kind of counsel he will seek in connection with international affairs. "De Kobra appears to be a fine gen? tleman, but he is a humorist, and in his own behalf I doubt if he would say he is profound in international af? fairs." Harding headquarters issued a state? ment to-day that M. De Kobra had tried to see Senator Harding at Indianapolis, but was denied an interview because of the pressure of time. The French jour? nalist in urging his case, according to the headquarters statement, explained that he had just come from Governor Cox and was especially anxious to see Senator Harding so that he could com? pare the rival gentlemen in his-articles for a French publication, but he was told that it would be impossible to ar? range the interview on the road.
