The indictment grows out of Mur

Confronted With Letter Express
ing "Sympathetic Feeling,"
He Admits Authenticity.
Senator Harding expressed a "s m
pathetic feeling" toward the Irish in
dependence movement it was admitted
at his office today.
The authenticity of his letter to
Frank P. Walsh voicing his moral ap
proval of Erin's aim was conceded
after the Kansas lawyer had made
its text public.
Senator Harding's letter, as given
out by Mr. Walsh. dated March 24
last, reads as follows:
"I have a very strong conviction,
myself, of the very great part played
by the Americans of Irish birth and
ancestry in the winning of independ
ence and the making of our own great
United States.
"More than that, I have a very great
sympatbetic feeling for the movement
to ,ring about the independence of
Ireland and the establishment of Irish
nationality which is the national as
piration of any liberty-loving people.
"I must confess I did not think well
of the insincere demonstration in the
Senate recently in handling a reserva
tion in behalf of Ireland in the reser
vations of the league of nations

made manifest wheot sixteen Senators,
who pressed the Irish reservation, re
fused to vote for the treaty after it
was incorporated. I had the satisfac

Announcement was made at Senator
Harding's office on June 19 that a

of having written such a letter. The
purported letter had been published

of the Irish republic at Paris.

"Bugs" Bae
Reasiark Upon
and Locusts
(Copyright. 1920.)
T HE tax soused year of.1920 will
clatter down In history as the
period of the seventeen-year locusts
and the four - year White House
THERE .is a spirit of brotherhood
between the locust and the can
didate. Both are bugs. They have
a working agreement by which the
candidate works the metropolitan
sections and leaves the suburbs to
the locusts.
WHICH authenticates the Dar
winian theory that there is
co-operation and a crude species of
language among the lower life on
this man's planet.
THERE Is an air of sincerity and
honesty around this convention
which was lacking in Chicago.
Probably due to the fact that the
big Democrats have not arrived yet.
THE Demoticket is still open.
Palmer. Cox, Owen. Edwards and
Champ Clark all have a chance to
grab the biscuits. Back in Chicago
the political masquerade was in be
fore it started. The Old Guard
didn't unmask until the tenth
ballot. The Old Guard is like a guy
who waits until the rescue is made
and then runs up and grabs the
Carnegie medal.
RUMORS are flying around thicker
than whiskers on the chin of
the 1916 G. O. P. nominee, but news
is scarcer than navigation on the
Great Salt Lake. The Demobosses
were strong for Palmer until a story
started about him smearing syrup
on both sides of his buckwheat
cakes, which places him irrevocably
among the radicals.
THIS convention is scared sour
that a Progressive will horn
in and rattle off with the cakes. If
you want to ruin a guy just buzz
around that he was piped wearing
pearl gray spats with a Tuxedo and
the bosses discard him like deuces
on the draw.
RATHER than stake a radical to
the nomination the bosses will
put up a candidate who cuts his
own hair and who runs into the
house every time a Ford backfires.
They want a good old party locust
who will stIck to the main herd
and who isn't liable to go outside
the lot for his mneals.
SHQWINGthat a Democratic con
enion doesn't differ much from
a Republican rodeo. Whatever his
politics happen to be at present cen
sun, a boss is always a boss.
cess If his red-headed manikin
developed a voice of his own.
THERE will be lots of fun at this
convention. It will be on the
up and up. There won't be any
sealed orders to be opened on the
aixth day out, like at Chicago. A
plebiscite of the defeated. InhabP-.
tants will indicate that the best man
didn't win, but the trimmed locusts
will have the advantage of their
seventeen-year relatives.
THEY can come back in four years
?for another meal.

such a big vote at the primary Preal

"Don't imagine I'm cast down by
