Datton, Ohio, Aug. 8. Gov. Cox and
Senator James A. Reed (Mo.) both
voiced their view Jo-day on the
League of Nations, expressing opin
ions so utterly divergent In tone an to
emphasise clearly the wide differences
between them on the Issue. Gov. Cox
applauded the covenant along the lines
frequently employed In the past by
President Wilson; Senator Reed as
sailed it bitterly. The Cox-Reed con
troversy, reflecting as it does a situ
ation which may extend to other
Democratic leaders, proved to be the
absorbing question in the aftermath
of the notification ceremonies.
"It now seems plain that nobody is
in favor of the lengue covenant as it
was brought hero and presented to the
Senate," said Mr. Reed. ''Everybody
admits it has to be changed. The truth
Is It has been literally shot full of
1 oles. Nobody dare any longer spon
sor It as presented. Some are in fa
vor of one change; some are in favor
0t fifteen or twenty changes; some
are against It" altogether, but nobody
is willing to take it without some
changes. Evidently we are making
fine progress. The longer it Is dis
cussed the more changes the people
favor. The critics of the league hare
been vindicated."
The contrary stand, expressed at
length in the speech of acceptance, was
reiterated by Gov. Cox when he spoke
Into an apparatus for the making of a
phonograph record to be used in the
campaign. Referring to the League of
Nations, the Democratic nominee said
In part:
"I am In favor of going in. This U
the supreme test. Shall we act In con
cert with the free nations of the world
in setting up a tribunal which will avert
wars In the future? This question must
be met and answered honestly and not
by equivocation. We must say in lan
guage which the world can understand
whether we ?hall participate In the ad
vancement of a cause which has In It
the hope of peace and world reconstruc
tion, or whether we propose to follow
the old paths trod by the nations of
I Europe; paths which always led to
; fields of blood.
Reed, "Mini on Support.
"We must say In language which our
I own people can understand whether we
.hall unite with our former allies to
make effective the only plan of peace
and reconstruction whUh hs been
formulated, or whether we propose to
play a lone hand In the world and guard
our isolation with a huge army and an
ever increasing navy, with all the con-
' cann.nl hnrHenR nf taxation. 1 re
peat: 'I favor going in.'"
Senator Reed left Dayton to-night
without saying whether he would sup
port Gov. Cox in the campaign, now
that he is firmly on record as the cham
pion of the Wilson league policies. He
wants more time to study the question
and to read the acceptance speech.
Within a week or ten days, he ex
plained, he may have something to pay.
"Whatever course I decide upon,"
said Senator Reed as he started for his
home in Missouri, "will . ome after full

Cox's decision to take up the Wilson
fight. When .he sent Gov. Cox the
telegram of congratulations immediate
ly after the nomination and when he
came to Dayton he believed it was the
purpose of the nominee to subordinate
the League Issue and at least to open
the way for reservations which he
stood for conscientiously In the Senate.
His last minute efforts to have Gov.
Cox change his position failed, at the
Friday night conference, and In conse
quence he hast insisted to those who
have sought hi views that Gov. Cox
made a grave mistake.
The disaffection of Senator Reed
called attention to the fight made
against the covenant in the Senate by
other Democrats who stood In almost
the same position as the Mlssourlan, no
tably Senators Thomas (Col.) and
Shields (Tenn.). They have not yet
spoken, but those Democrats who still
are In Dayton are holding their hands
behind their ears for expressions that
so far have failed to come.
Aliunde of Thomas.
The attitude of Senator Thomas is
awaited particularly, owing to the deli
cacy of the Colorado situation. Presi
dent Wilson carried Colorado in both
elections, but this year It looks Repub
lican. At any rate, the State sentiment
Is strong against the League. The fact
that Senator Thomas Is a candidate for
re-election and that he probably will
fight the League in the campaign Is
looked upon with concern, not only be
cause of Its effect In Colorado but .n
the Western country, which the Demo
crats will have to carry If they are to
win In November.
Approval of the speech which so far
has failed to reach Dayton is from Will

Cox Ignored the subject of prohibition,
although he did declare for stringent
law enforcement. Is hardly expected to
be satisfactory to the Nebraskan. Word

Gov. Cox received a report from Mra
Abble Scott Baker, legislative chairman
of the National Woman's party, that all
Is virtually over except the shouting so
far as concerns the ratification of the
woman suffrage amendment by the
Tennessee Legislature, meeting to-mor
row In special session. Mrs. Baker said
she had learned by telegraph that
enough votes are pledged to carry the
ratification resolution. Seventeen votes
are required In the Senate and elgh
teen are pledged; the necessary fifty In
the House have been promised.
The ratification amendment by Ten
nessee will mean the granting of uni
versal equal suffrage at the coming elec
tlon. Ten million additional women,
Mrs. Baker said, will be enabled to vote
for President, making possible a total
woman's vote of 27,000.000. It hardly

Representative Cordell Hull (Tenn).
! started for Nashville as one of the pcr-
1 ponal reprerentatlves of Gov. Cox to
help along the ratification. It Is. of
' course, the desire of the Democrats to
get such credit as can be had from as
sisting the ratification. The feeling Is,
too. that equal suffrage will assist ma
terially the Democratic campalga be
cause of the sentimental appeal in the
League of Nations Issue.
Conferences between party leaders
and an expected flood of congratulatory
messages over the acceptance speech
otherwise marked the day. Senator Pat
Harrison (Miss.) announced the Itine
rary for Gov. Cox's campaign up to
September 3, which will see the begin
ning of the Western tour. There are
open dates to be filled In later, but this
Is the schedule so far decided upon :

George H. White, cnairmmi u .
Democratic National Committee, accom
panied him, saying that the personnel of
the campaign committee would be an
nounced soon at the New York head
quarters. Many Democrats before starting ror
home visited Trail's End to see Gov.
Cox and congsatulate him on the speech.
Among the visitors were Senator Pom
erene (Ohio), Theodore Bell of Califor
nia. Breckenrldge Long, recently nom
inated for Senator from Missouri, and
George Brennen, the new Illinois leader,
who succeeded Roger Sullivan.
"Gov. Cox's speech Is a cloar declara
tion of principle," said Mr. Brennen. "It
Is direct and forceful and easily under
stood." Before leaving Dayton Senator Reed
and Senator Pomerene, the Democratic
members of the Senate Campaign Funds
Investigating Committee, had a confer
ence at which they agreed upon the date
proposed by the chairman, Senator Will
lam S. Kenyon (Iowa) for a resumption
of the hearings. This ts August 18. and
Chicago probably will be selected as the
scat of the inquiry, as most convenient
to the different members. The commit
tee will meet two or throe time for
short periods during the campaign to
receive report about contribution and
disbursements in both party organizations.
