Oct. 9 Elec t1n of Warren G. Harding to the pres f the United "States will mean tre ultimate ratification of the leaguo of nation, mith reservations, and "the elimination f all further dispute, TCiV.um. Howard Taft, former presl aeni or the tnitod States, stated upon h' arrival here today at the head Of the arbitration board of the Grand Trunk-Pacific railway. "Governor Co has asked me how I ran support Senator Harding when the senator has denoiyieed the league of t atiar." said Mr. Taft. "Cox U not ejuite right If he says Harding is op posed to the .league of nations idea. Harding wants a league that will be constituted more like a court. He wants a league, but rot Mr. Wilson's leaxu. "Obviously there will have to be "m compromise and It may very well le that the Kind of league Senator Harding supports will form the basis on the compromise. I believe that the eWtion of Senator Harding will mean the adoption of a league of-nations with reservations ami the ending of a;i further, dispute." Mr. Taft said that while Jie was personally In favor of the league of nation and was willing to accept It as presented by President Wilson with Artkie 1ft. he added that he was 'bit- tTly disappointed when the president did not accept the reservations voted hv- the Republicans, who, with a few Iemocrat. constituted majority ln the senate. He said recent statements of 1-ord Grey in a letter to the Times at the time the reservations were under discussion, indicated that there "was no daubt that the United States could he entered the league with the con sent of the other nations."

"It is essen tial," he went on, "in the Interest of Ireland that the gang should be broken p and unless I am mistaken we shall do it. But side by side with that we must proceed with measures for safe government in Ireland." In speaking of the reprisals, the pre mier argued that the police would not bomb houses and shoot men, if there was no provocation. Policemen num bering 238 had been shot, he declared, and of these 109 had been shot dead. This had tried the patience of the police. As for self government for Ireland, the premier explained that if complete dominion home rule were accorded, Ire land could have conscription. In that case, he pointed out, England's army of 100.000 might be confronted with an Irish army of 500,000. Conscription for Kngland. he said, must necessarily fol low dominion home rule in Ireland.

Gov ernor tox sam some real mend oi the great Roosevelt should set this boy right concerning the fundamentals of the league. It is a pitiable spectacle to see this son of a great sire shame lessly paraded before the public Out of respect for the memory of his Illus trious father, someone should take this Juvenile statesman aside and ln primer fashion rmikc plain what really ought to be obvious.

P. Leased Wire NEW YORK. Oct. 9. Will H.

Paragraphs in the president's speech dealing with foreign alliances which Mr. Hays quoted are: There are just as vital things stir ring now that concern existence of the nation as were stirring then (colonial period), and every man who worthily conception of what it means that America shall live her own life. Wash ington saw it when, he wrote his fare well address. "It was not merely because of pass ing and transient circumstances that Washington said we must keep free from entangling alliances. "It was because he saw thattio coun try had yet set Us face in the same direction in which America had set her face. "We cannot form alliances with those who are not going our way and in our might and majesty and in the certainty of our own purpose we need not and we should not form alliances with any nation in the world. Those who are right, those who study their consciences in determining their policies, those who hold their honor higher than their advantage, ao not need alliances.

P. Leased Wire FOUR BROOKLYN TWIRLERS TRY TO CHECK INDIAN OFFENSIVE BUT . SPOKE'S CREW 'REFUSED TO BE STOPPED IN FOURTH ADVANCE. 4 x LEVELAND, Ohio," Oct. 9 The Cleveland Indians massacred the Brooklyn Robins in the fourth game of the world's series today, winning, five to one, andtying the struggle foi the 1920 baseball championship, as each team has won two games and the battle will be renewed tomorrow with the American - -leaguers the favorites. The tribe of Speaker evidently bur nished up its collective war clubs returning from Brooklyn and fell on the Robins with an attack that swept the easterners off their ; feet and brought unlimited joy to the thousands of fans , who had been waiting for the awakening of the home club. ; While the Indians were battering tour Brooklyn ' nitr-Ws tn a frazzle. Stanlev Coveleskie held the invaders i almost Helpless in the grasp of his evasive ball and five hits were collected from the former miners delivery. In almost everv inning the Robins went out in order, so per- v V- - si . . 1 W feet was his control and the defense oi his teammates tnat J but three Superbas were left stranded and only one, Jimmy Johnston, completed tne circuit. From the offensive standpoint, the1 Cleveland clan tore Into the Nationals with a rush and actually won the game in the first inning. The runs were quickly accumulated, followed by an other pair in the third and the final score came in the sixth. -It was not the total runs that the Indians made which impressed their followers, but the manner in which they fairly ran rampant through the highly touted pitching talent of the National leaguers. Leon Cadore was knocked out In the second session and Mamaux, his successor. Buffered a similar fate ln the third. "Rube" Mar quard, who earlier in the day had been arrested for ticket speculating and released on his . word to report Monday, followed .Mamaux and after ridding himself of the heritage of Ma maux pitched good ball until he re tired to permit Lamar to bat for him. Jeff Pfeffer then went in and had the final run Bcored againet him. Twelve hits, five runs and ten Indians left on bases tells the story. Covie's Spitter Working The air-tight hurling of Covelesxie was hardly needed In view of the bru tal manner In which Speaker's players battered the Brooklyn quartet. Never theless Stanley moistened the ball time after time and shot it up with all the hit-defying slips and slants as though the contest depended entirely on his ability to snap the ball before the weak Robins. Coveleskie hurled the sphere 86 times, 22 being: balls. 1'6 strikes, 9 foul strikes and 3 fouls after the second strike. Seven times the ball was played for a ground out and 14 times for fly outs. These figures plus the five scattered hits against Cove leskie show his effectiveness. The victory came at the psychologi cal moment for Cleveland, which is now thought to have the edge on Rrooklyn. With the game score at two each and three games still to play at home, the advantage should rest with the Indians. They have now met everv Brooklvn pitcher of class and the star twirlers of the Robins are no longer a mystery. The effect of the loyal support given by Cleveland fans was evident today - 4 A ( jyff t i ! t both before nd during the game. The support given the home club was fully up to tlie standard of any previous world's series and it was apparent that the American league combination worked with more confidence and cer tainty. Cleveland started to make the team feel that the entire section was behind it and believed explicitly In its ability to win out. Ideal, Baseball Weather The game was played in perfect weather, the afternoon being so hot many bleacherltes sat In their shirt sleeves. There was pot a cloud in the sky and not enough breeze to move tho autumn haze in the lazy late summer atmosphere.

Neighboring housetops, too, w.! bore full" quotas of men and women, im while every window overlooking the park was packed with faces. Inside the park the fans showed all the evidence of world series enthu siasm. Bells, rattles and a well organ ized auto horn chorus helped to keep the enthusiasm at top pitch through the first three innings. After scoring the first four runs it was realized that with Coveleskie. pitching winning was j"" merely a matter of good defensive play and the fans, relieved of all anxiety, put their noise making' instruments aside and settled back to enjoy the game. Every good play was liberally ap plauded, however, whether by a Cleve land or Brooklyn player. It was a Robin who provided the neatest hit of fielding for the fans to enjoy. In th fourth Evans lifted a low drive over second, which appeared certain to go for a Texas leaguer, but Myers, rush ing ln from deep center, reached the ball tack of second "and slipped his hands under it just before it touched the ground ard came up after a som ersault with the ball sticking in his gloved hand. Myers was given a long, hearty cheer. ' Griffith Still Starring. A clever piece of baseball strategy w nich slipped by unnoticed by the fans was perpetrated hy Griffith 4n the sev enth. After Burns walked, Gardner drove a high drive to right field. Grif fith played the ball as thoush he ex pected to make a fly put -out and Burnsr watching the attitude of the fielder, was slow in starting for sec ond. The ball, however, passed far over Griffith's head and he then quickly turned and picked it off tha wall on the rebound with the result that Burns was held at third and Gard ner at first. With cheers of their supporters ring ing in their cars the Indians got away to a two-run lead in the first Inninr, touching Cadore for two hits and coax ing one pass.
