The Hartford Herald, $1.50 the year I SPEAKINGS DEMOCRATIC SPEAKING AROUSES E'lTMTIAI Mrs. Woodburry and Senator Harris Drive Hard Licks For League In addresses delivered Saturday afternonn to an audience that filled Kgaiiini me uiiuueuis ul uuu the League. Mrs. Woodbury spoke first and among her opening statement said that women should not be bound by party ties but should vote for the party and candidates that represent the principles for which they stand. She said that after thorough study i - m t . i . l n.nr.it. I sue imu luuiiu mui mv iwuiutittu i party best represented her views and is now advocating the principles ! for which she stands. She told ot the wonderful achievements of the Democratic party under the leader ship of Wood row Wilson and then i In answer to the Republican charges ' of extravigance pointed to the Re publican record daring the Spanish American war; how through lack of policy on the part of the Republican, administration, thousands laid in ramps and died of disease and from unwholesome food. She quoted' from Roosevelt's Memoirs in which he tells how for months it was im possible for troops to get across the narrow strip of water between Florida and Cuba, and how Roose velt finally managed to cut through the red tape and get over with his regiment. She then told of how 2, 000,000 men were transported 3. 000 miles across the submarine in tested Atlantic with the loss ot only a few. And then how they were 1 fe(j clothed and equipped in a foreign land while they marched to a glorious victory. She ably dis cussed the League of Nations and told why every woman should vote to secure this great preventative of war. Her entire speech was logical and to the point and at least one patriotic Ohio County lady told Mrs. Woodbury that after Jiearlng the League discussed in its true light she had changed her mind and would vote for it whole heartedly. Senator Harris answered every objection to the League of Nations cud branded as the r.ioit ridiculous Mmpnign i-e he had ever heard the charge made by local Republicans that Articlo 23 of the Nations en courages the traffic in women and children. He quoted the first pro vision of article 23 which reads as follows "The members of the League wil endeavor to maintain fair and humane conditions of labor for men, women and children, both in their own countries and in ull countries to which their industrial und com mercial relations extend, and for thut purpose will establish and main tain the necessary international or ganizations." He showed clearly that the intention of the League framers was entirely to eradicate truffle In women and children by placing It uniWthe supervision of the League. In a few words he made it plain that in the Council ot the League, which is the real body, the U. S, has the came representation as Great Brltuiu or any other nation and cun veto any measure. Furth ermore ho showed that the matter ot war or peace will be left to Con gress, i In referring to erroneous and ridiculous statements made by Gov. .Vinow retarding the League he lulled it' the people ot Kentucky are wIHIng to listen to ony more ot Morrow's balderdash, lie said Mor row hud promised to lower taxes and reduce the number of olHcers Mid that Instead taxes are now high er thun ever and there are two more offices than before Morrow's inaugu ration. He also called attention to the fact that under Morrow most of the state Institutions now have Superintendents from other states. Gov. Harris is an able" speaker and rails a spade a spade. He was applauded frequently. -' The Morgantown brass band furn ished music for the occasion. uita.rTSr2.A day night. The opera houM was , filled and many were tumil away . because ot lack of room.
