Conspiracy to Break Wilson
Laid at Feet of ‘Round
Robin’ Leader.
CHICAGO. Oct SO.—Rabbi Stephen
Wise of New York, one of the most prom
inent members of the Jewish faith In the
country and an Independent In politics,
who Is now speaking for the League of
Nations and In behalf of Cox and Roose
velt, passed throngh Chicago last night
en route to Kansas City, and gave out
the following statement at Demoeratl*
headquarters In Chicago:
I note that one .Tmlson Welllver trav
els by the side of Harding whenever th*
latter is untethered from the front parch.
Well ver is the tall of a conspiracy. In
famous and loathsome, the head and
front of the unspeakable offending of
which was and remains Senator Henry
Cabot Lodge.
I us£ the term conspiracy advisedly.
I use It with complete understanding
of what it means.
If the President failed In Paris—and
he filled only in part—ls the President
failed to realize the hopes of the Euro
-1 pean nations in perfecting the League of
Nat ons plan. It was very largely be
cause of the conspiracy to break Wilson
and to defeat the Democratic party at the
presidential election of 1020.
Lodge ought to be told by the Ameri
can people that whether seven or seventy
generations of Massachusetts ancestors
Ue behind him it was his business and
that of his associates to remember that
when the President of the United States
was in Paris #nd London negotiating an
Instrument of peace with our associated
nations, he was the President of the
United Stat: sand was entitled to the
foil and complete support of every Amer
ican citizen.
President Wilson did not receive that
If Senator Lodge disapproved of the
treaty and of the league covenant drawn
in part by the President, he was free in
the Senate to oppose it ar.d to make
Impossible Its ratification.
But he was not free, nor Is any Ameri
can citizen free while the President rep
resents America in negotiations with for
eign countries, to bring it to pass that
the leaders of those foreign, countries
as-siime that their dealings with the
President of the United States is gov
erned by the persuation that he no
longer represents America and that the
real leaders of the Nation are the sena
torial group of a political party other
than the President's.
If Senator Harding should be Presi
dent, whether at home or abroad, he will
be my President, he will be the Presl
dent of ail the American people and mil
lions of Democrats who, like myself, will
vote for Cox and Roosevelt will look
upon him and support him loyally as
the President of the United State*.
’ If the case had been reversed and the
Republican President had been treated
by the leaders of the Democratic part)
as the President was treated by the
leaders of the Republican party amr
tneir newspaper garbage-distributing
■ gents such as Welllver, these meh would
be charged with treasonable conduct,
and rightly so.
The American people are called upon
to pass upon the question of whether
the President shall be supported by the
United States or whether the Senate
members of an opposing poLtlcal pa.t
are free to undermine and to thwart,
aud as far as they can, to destroy him
as lie deals for uad on behalf of the
In ted States with the representative*
©I foreign lands.
If the facts were known by the Amer
lean citizens, Henry Cabot Lodge would
be rebuked with a swiftness and a direct
ness that would end the reign of Lodge
" eillverism in American p -Utica.
I he truth is Lodge and his associates
were not opposed to the League of Na
tions In advance of President Wilson's
Journey to Paris.
They were opposed to whatever Wilson
nil ht ’ riti" h-me from the scene of
peace negotiations.
When Wilson went to Parks, the lead
ers or foreign governments who were to
negotiate with him were warned in ad
vance that the President would Insist
npon a soft, mild, uuexacting peace In
relation to Germany.
Wilson disappointed Lodge and his
kina because be was nrm and strong
and unyielding, as he ought to have
been in relation to Germany
Inasmuch as the peace terms were un
exceptionable. something had to be op
posed, and therefore th cry went
through the country that Wilson'was re
gponsible for the League of Nations
” uson was its mighty and most per
suasive spokesman. but the one Amer
) *£ an who more than nny other deserves
the credit of authorship of the League of
Nations idea was that great American.
I resident Taft, who, If he were not
bound by the real or fancied obligation
to stand by the party which nominated
him for the presidency, could not and
wou and not support the candidacy of
The Republican conspiracy, and con
spiracy it was, for men eonslpred with
out physically coming togetiier. was di
rected not against the treaty nor against
the covenunt of the league, but ugalnst
Wilson and against the Democratic
The league covenant was seized as a
pretext on which to hang at one and
the same time the indictment and the
condemnation of the President and all
ms works.

goes even deeper than has been Indicated

certain groups, abetted and furthered by

Governor Cox arrived in Chicago ghort
ly after 8 o’clock.
He was an hour and fl'teen minutes
ahead of the reception committee.
The party came here od " special train.
Governor Cox remaineu in his private
car until the reception committee was
due at the station.
His statement was in response to in
quiries from organizations In New York
as to what steps he would take to ob
tain action on the League of Nations and
the Irish and Jewish questions.
His r#ply was:
“If I am elected I shall recognize the
mandate for entrance Into the League o'
Nations. I shall work ont that solution
in conference with the Penate and with
acceptance of such helpful reservations
as are necessary to secure that end. I
shall consult with Wl son. Taft and
Root and any others who by virtue of
their experience can render helpful serv
“Furthermore, in the consideration o'
specific matters like the cause of Ireland,
I shall consult with men who knew the
traditions and desires of the Irish peo
ple. such as Bourke Cockran, Governor
Alfred E. Smith and Senator David I.
“In connection with the Jewlah ques
tion I shall ronsu t with the leaders of
Jewish thought in America”
With today and Monday the only work
ing days, the Governor coupled with the
plea for a league of nations a summary
of what he believes Senator Harding’s
election would moan. He Is reading all
papers to pet the final statements of
Senator Harding and Is attacking hi*
“somersaults on the league issue.”
Today was the first time during the
campaign that Cox has spoken In Chi
cago. although be has been through here
three times.
Hl* meeting at the Coliseum tonight
was expected to be one of the biggest of
the campaign.
In addition, be was to speak to women
at Woods’ Theater at noon, and to an
overflow nights meeting in the Harrison
High School.
During the afternoon, he was to lake
a special train to Gary and Evanston
for speeches.
To obtain a day of rest, he will leave

He Is demanding that Harding tell
the country what promises were made
to the group of Senators that conferred
with him In the Blackstone Hotel, Chi

convention nomination: whether George
Harvey has been promised a cabinet Job;
whether George Reynolds, Chicago
banker, has been given a pledge that
hankers will be given control of the
Federal Reserve system; whether reac
tionaries have been promised control of
the Supreme Court; whether George Syl
vester Vierlck has not been promising
Harding 6,000 000 German votes under the
pledge that a separate peace will be made
with Germany.

Large Eastern Printeries Keep
Mammoth Stocks on Hands
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 29.—Tbl*
city is one of the country's fountain
heads of learning.
Aside from harboring the great and
awe-inspiring Harvard University, nu
merous lesser schools and endless book
shops specializing in all degrees of
erudition, Cambridge possesses the fac
tory of the largest schoolbook publish
ing company In the country.
This plant regularly keeps 2.000.000
schoolbooks on hand In its storage bins,
and even with this huge reserve, the
presses have to run night and day at
the busy seasons.
Right now, the factory is working at
the highest pressure.
Schools from Florida to California
send to the company’s offices In Boston
for books and while most schools are
opened by this time, orders are still
piling In.
Many school officials, It seems, hare
a way of waiting until the term is about
to open and then deciding on the books
to be used and the company to pat
This casual attitude of the local
powers Is one of the chief causes of
white hair In the textbook business.
No ouija board has yet been located
that, can tell a firm how many physics
or spelling books of a certain kind will
be called for, so It has to estimate a
reasonable number and then work at top
speed If orders exceed expectations.
This company, with Its stock of 2,000,-
000 books, finds it necessary V> keep
no less than 4,000 different titles on
band, and these are all what might be
called current books; for as soon as a
text-book becomes antiquated or is sup
planted by a later edition the old copies
on the shelves are torn np, to be sold
us junk.
Walking along the storage rooms yon
can catch glimpses of spelling books and
arithmetics that call up pictures of youi
early struggles with culture.
Less familiar works are here, too, such
formidable affairs as “The Application
of Calculus to Mechanics,’’ “Word For
rantion In the Roman Sermo Plehelus,”
and “A Grammar of the lunuit Lan
The guide obligingly explains Tnnult
means Eskimo; that this particular work
Is rarely called for, and that It sells
for $5, an unusually high rate for a
plainly bound school book.
Books of this type are the “Jonahs”
of the school book buslues*. Some pa
tient scholar spends perhaps twenty
years writing an abstruse thesis on
which neither he nor hi* publisher ean
possibly make any money, because few
copies will be sold.
Yet the demauds of advanced scbelar
ship require such books, and the larger
pnbilshors must be the ones to produce
them, even though they often know in
advance that the books mean a loss.
Ponderous works, however, make up
only a small fraction of the plant’s out
The bins for the most part are stackoo
to the ceiling with ordinary grammar
and high school books.
The demand for schoolbooks Increase*
every and this mean* plenty of
trade for the publisher*.
They tell you, though, they are far
from sailing on smooth sea* of pros
Certain kinds of paper are about t”

In the past, they say. schoolbooks
have remained remarkably stable In
price, though publishers have been con
stantly Increasing expenditure* to Im
prove the appearance of their product.
Few people have any idea of the In*
and outs of putting a textbook on the
market. You may have paused to smile
over the fauey that school children now
have more history to assimilate than
when you pored over dates and battles,
but did you ever think of the schoolbook
producer who has to keep up with the
wandering boundaries of Europe and
reduce the world war to a few pages
of text in language suitable for chil
Did you know, for Instance, the more
progressive publishers are having their
geographies practically rewritten since
the war In order to bring, not only the
maps, but the text, up to date?
An editor of the firm referred to In
this story says his company spent about
SIOO,OOO before a single copy of its new
est geography could be printed.
Now the book Is being run off the
presses as rapidly ns possible, and the
firm cannot begin to fill th(T demand
for It.
Producing schoolbooks Is In many ways
entirely different from publishing fiction.
A best seller novel that would require
r.n Investment of three or four thousand
dollars and sell for 82 a copy, ha* a
boom of a few months and then sizzles
down to cheap editions and soon fades
out of sight and memory.
The returns are Immediate and brief,
and the author is then expected to grind
out n new masterpiece.
The Initial cost of a history, such as
is used in high schools, on the other
hand, is over five times as much, and
a geography twenty-five times as much,
as the novel, because of numerous maps
and Illustrations.
Yet the price of the textbook is similar
or less than that of the novel.
In the case of an up-to-date geography,
which Just now would be a* best seller,
the large outlay might be quickly offset
by sales, but In the ordinary run of
things. It is a year or more before a
textbook begins to pay for itself.*
Then, it brings In to its author and
the publisher steady returns for five
years, or possibly twenty-five, according
to Its lasting qualities.
That is, a first reader is apt to be pop
ular only a few years because new meth
ods of teaching reading are constantly
being worked out.
A mathematics book Is more likely to
have a long and prosperous existence.
The Wentworth algebras and other
mathematical works by the same author
have been on the market for years, and
perhaps forty of them are best sellers
The Wentworth books are one of the
notable successes of the textbook history.
When George A. Wentworth was a
young teacher at Exeter Academy, thirty
five years ago, he spent his nights work
ing on a textbook of gcon*etr.v.
He succeeded In publishing this, and
immediately started work on algebra.
In time he was so busy writing books
he gave up teaching entirely.
Later, his Son, wlio grew to be a
mathematical scholar, assisted him, and
this son still has his hands full revis
ing their long list of works and writing
new ones to meet the demands of chang
ing courses of study.
When Wentworth published his first
book b* mi an unknown teacher, srho

3. We demand that all offieps be sala- ‘
rled, and that all fees be abolished. We
condemn the oppression of the people
through the means of the prosecutor's l
office when such prosecutioi s are in
stituted simply to collect fees, and not
to vindicate the law.
4. We are In favor of discharging all
unnecessary and incompetent employes
now crowding both the courthouse and
the city hall to the great detriment of
the public. We favor rigid economy tn
all departments of the public service.
fi. We denounce as criminal and in
human the manner in which the- present
Republican sheriff has treated prisoners.
He lias made thousands of dollars feed
ing tbe-n rotten, diseased and Insufficient
food, and they have been abused and
mistreated in a manner that was shame
less. Gambling was allowed to be car
ried on at the Jail between the officers
and the prisoners and the men in charge
of them pocketed a “rakeoff” on the
unlawful practices. Insane prisoners
were abused so ns to cause suffering and
death. These crimes call for retribution
by an outraged public.
6. We denounce ns criminal the manner
In which the hopeless!'/ Insane tnmafes
were treated at the Julietta Asylum. And
we denounce the suppression of the truth
by the Republican county commissioners.
7. We contemplate with horror the
treatment of the pauper dead by Arthur
C. Whiteside, a Republican politician,
who had a contract from the county to
bury them. The bodies were buried In
such hollow graves that the dogs dug
them out. Seventeen bodies were hurled
in one hole aud a dog was buried with
them. A political party tbnt will em
ploy such men deserves detent.
8. We denounce the Incoinpotency of
our city officials, who have failed to en
force the law aga’nst political rounders
who live by gambling. Wo denounce as
a crime the condition In which our
streets are kept and the way our money
Is being squandered in the employment
of useless nnd inefficient employrs. We
denounce the infamous deal by means of
which a SVOOO reduction plant whs sold
to the city for ?175.nn0. We denounce
the c ty officials beeause. Instead of serv
ing the people, they have played politics
nnd have created a political ring that
totally disregards the wants and wishes
of our clt zens.
9. We denounce as dangerous to the
public welfare the unlawful combination
of city and county Repul.Mean politicians
"b r b dominates Dominations to office
and coerce the appointment of subordi
nates chosen by them, and that does not
hesitate at any means to gain its end.
10. Me denounce as h mocrltlcal and
Insincere the claim of the present Repub
l ean city and coupty officials, that they
tc-t honesty and clean government,
records show broken promises. In
effi, iency nnd dishonesty and the people
are condemning them as unclean and are
demanding a change.
