"Ambassador" Admits Help
of Concern Relied on to
Gain Recognition.
WASHINGTON, Jim. 30. How
the, couriers of soviet IlUHHla carry
ing funds to finance Its propaganda
in America run the gauntlet of death
and Imprisonment In tho surround
ing states of Kuropc, was u story be
gun but alandoned half told today
by Ludwlg C. A. K. MartctiH. soviet
agent In tho United State before tho
senato foreign relations mib-commlt-teo
investigating Russian propagan
da. Martens flatly declined to an
sa er further questions put to him by
tho committee on the subject of the
couriers, and loft It to consider
whether or not hlsplen of "diplo
matic Immunity" from further exam
ination should be allowed, whllo he
went on to recount hLs ponwnnl nc
rJMtlert In endeavoring to get his
government recognized by tho state
department, and In placing provis
ional contracts for $25,000,000 worth
of food, clothing and machinery with
American business houses. This lat
ter effort, ho nald, had resulted In
pticlng two or three letters before
President Wilson urgjng recognition,
though the stato department has ro
inalnrd lirm in if refusal to recog
nize him In any way.
Out of 20 of tho mysterious mes
aengcrs who started during tho last
j ear from Moscow with fundn and
lettere to him. Martens nald, seven
had (rotten through tho barriers of
armies and International frontiers.
Everal had been shot summarily In
Finland "threcv that I know about,"
Martens said ca.iua.lly. Of 10 who
tried to get through Germany, nlno
were caught and Jailed. Tho first
man to roach him hqwqver, curried
J3O.O0O and his credentials as soviet
ambassador to tho t'nlted States. The
couriers carried money In tho fonn
of Finnish marks, or Scandinavian
currency, Martens said, and had
valoua varieties of passports. Here
he began to evade, though Sonator
Moa.es of Now Hampshire, chairman
of tho committee, and Senator llrftn
deseo, Connecticut, who were prod
dins him on with questions na to tho
meeafneer's routes, and methods of
trniel and disguise.
"I declino to answer," lio stated
finally when asked to nnmo one ot
the couriers and repeated his words
quietly when the topic was pushed
further lie, too, had sent couriers,
he admitted, but of their fortunes ho
hud not been advised. Altogether
150,000 had come to him through
the underground routo and also an
Instruction, so he said, not to spend
any money "on politics or tho sup
port of Internal factions or parlies In
the United States."
A list of contracts for goods en

A Crisis in Oklahoma Rep ublicanism
The moHt amazinir thing, tho moat unbelievable thing,
about tho withdrawal of James .!. AlcGraw from the na
tional committeeman race, is the apparent fact that a man
has at last arisen in Oklahoma politics who puts party loy
alty and patriotism above personal lust for office. Mc
Gniw has always ranked high in the appraisement of
friends and acquaintances; but in sacrificing himself in the
interest of that political association for which he entertains
such great affection, he has easily become the most out
standing figure in Oklahoma politics.
This can be said without fear of giving offense to those
who while recognizing the sterling worth of the man, the
neighbor, the husband and father, still felt constrained to
damn him because ho worshipped God in a manner ob
jectionablo, to them; the while ardently advocating the
candidacy of a man who worships no other God than Mam
mon. We say the mode of praise we thus accord Jim
McGraw will excite no vicious opposition from oven these
worthy bigots. For the great "danger" is past; McGraw
calms their fears in these words:
"I shall not hesitate to serve the party and the
cause it stands for in any capacity acceptable to mv
follow republicans and fellow -countrymen. But I
shall not embarrass cither by again preferring a re
quest for honors at their hands. In this spirit lot us
agree what is best to bo done in Oklahoma, and hav
ing agreed, let a united parly set about embracing the
opportunity for party success that undoubtedly pre
sents itself.'"
Bigger than any ono of his detractors; bigger by far
than all of those who fought him on church grounds' put
together, practicing tho truly Christian spirit McGraw took
himself out of the race "without prejudice to any," placed
himself at the disposal of his associates for service in the
ranks, and did not make it a condition of his loyalty that
his party should be anti-anything. Unwilling to involve
his own church? or the church or organization of another;
realizing the miserable unfairness and impossibility of the
whole fight, he sensed that it could only be ended by some
man rising above the plane of mere politics and acting the
man. He did that.
We say again, no man in republican politics in this state
has ever rendered the party such signal service as did Jim
McGraw in his statement of withdrawal. When ho was a
candidate for office he had supporters. Today, standing
behind the bars of political renunciation which he himself
set in place, he has thousands of friends. We ask that
ample note be made of the distinction.
But if McGraw, the victim, found that his duty as a
citizen and republican required him to sacrifice his own
ambition ; that even though he might have continued the
fight and secured his own re-election, these considerations
must be heeded, because he would then be incapable of
healing the wounds of the party, harmonizing the factions
and commanding that co-operation absolutely essential to
party success, what is to be said of those who made ihs
issue and directed tho fight?
That is the question that confronts every loyal repub
lican in Oklahoma this morning. If it is to be met worth
ily, then it must be met in the same splendid spirit exem
plified by McGraw.
The republican party has never been, nor is it now, as a
matter of fact, either a Catholic or an anti-Catholic party.
It is an American party. Wo believe THE American party.
If, the withdrawal of James McGraw was necessary to
prove that it is not in fact a Catholic party, then ftic elimi
nation of Jake Ilamon is necessary to prove that it is not
nn anti-Catholic party. And furthermore, Ilamon's elimi
nation is necessary to prove that it is not a j.arty of boodle
and immorality. It is necessary, too, to that co-operative,
enthusiastic action which "McGraw foresaw could not bo
his in case of success, and equally can never be Hamon's.
That is the situation that stares the republicans of
Oklahoma in the face. No amount of sophistry can altr
it; no argument or evasion change it in the slightest.
The World docs not propose to indulge in personalities
or become a sewer. It does purpose talking for a mome: t
in an understandable tongue.
It may be that Jake Ilamon will he elected as the
supremo representative of Oklahoma republicans in na
tional affairs; that ho will be the major-general of the
party in the state for the next four years. We will go
further and assert that such is bound to be the result
unless the patriotism of the party, the loyalty of the party,
tho DECENCY of the party, the pride of the party, springs
into action and forbids it.
But if Hamon's election should come to pass, let it be
known beforehand that no man or woman who espoused
the cause of James J. McGraw will bear a single ounce of
responsibility for it. They have had their hour in Geth
scmane with personal pride, and they emerged cleansed.
For there they made the sacrifice necessary to prevent such
a thing, if those who know the full portent of it will but do
their duty.
And if Hambn is selected as the party leader; if Ha
monism dops triumph and stamp itself upon the republi
can party of Oklahoma, then farewell, a long farewell to
an opposition party in Oklahoma capable of commanding
respect, confidence or co-operation either at homo or
abroad. '
For there are tens of thousands of men and women in
this stato who do believe in the honor of men and the
virtue of women; who do believe that the reasonable puri
fication of politics is not an iridescent dream; who do be
lieve that the republican party in Oklahoma is under obli
gation to maintain itself in such a way that it will bo
ready to respond to the popular mandate when the people
have at last tired of major-party domination and turn for
relief to the only source from which relief can come under
the form of government we practice. (
And these republicans will neither accept the Ilamon
representation nor follow tho Ilamon leadership.
The question then is this: Shall wo servo republican
ism as taught by Roosevelt and Lincoln; by Wood and
Johnson and Borah and those others too mrmerous to men
tion ; or shall wo follow republicanism astiracticcd by Jako
Hamon? If tho first,, then we can pridefully point to tho
party in Oklahoma and tho nation. If the second, then it
will still be possible to take pride in the national party
only by forgetting the state party. ,
