Forefront of Fight For Better Gov

in Essentials of Statesmanship-
Blunders in Mexico.
Special to Times-Republican.
t'edar K:pidx, May 17.—An eloquent
plea for endorsement of Senator Albert
B. Cummins, of Iowa, for the presi
dency of the L'niled States was made
today by Howard J. Clark, of Des
Moines, in his kevnote speech as tem
porary chairman of the first republican
state convention in session here. Mr.
'lark eulosized the lrwa senator and
expressed high hope for his ultimate
victory in the race for the presidential
Mr -Clark said in part:
"Today marks a new epoch
history of the republican party in
Iowa. We meet in convention to ap
prove the choice of the people of the
state for the republican nomination for
president of the United States and to
consider the fundamental principles of
republicanism. The public interest is
the first and only thing for considera
tion and the interests of the whole
country challenges the attention.
Tour years ago delegates 1O the na
tional convention eleetPd directly by
the people were excluded from parti
cipating in the party council. On the
Tth of June next the majority of the
delegates constituting that convention
will have been elected hy a direct vote
(if the people. Today it is altogether
fitting that the man who led thp con
test for popular self-government and
direct control of public affairs should
be the honored choice of the united re
publican party for its nomination as
president of the United States and
that this convention should re-record
in its most emphatic and solemn way
the selection of Senator A. B. Cum
mins for that position.

great centra! wfst has taken
an active and determined part in de
veloping the principles of republican
ism and the foremost pffective able ex
ponent and leader is Iowa's
upon the ballot, the delegation Is in
structed for him and so far as we ar®
able to learn, every man so instructed
intends to act in good faith and carry
out his instructions."
The speaker dwelt at great lengtih
on the part played by Senator Cum
mins in the various political activities
of recent years and reviewed in detail
his acts as a memliT of the United
States senate. He added: "We have a
candidate with strength, wisdom,
character, and experience who has
been a leader among his people: a man
whose strength has been expended for
the benefit of the whole country. Albert
B. Cummins, and with united support
the chances oif this nomination will be
greatly increased.
"The republican party sometimes has
failed to measure, up to the ideals of
the country in respect to one or more
of its principles and has been relieved
of Its power bv the voters of the coun
try. On each occasion this reproof
has been sufficient to bring about rec
tification. The democratic party in
variably has failed to measure up to
the standards of the American people
for any considerable length of time
and invariably passes out of power at
the first opportunity the people have
for expressing a choice and this year
of 1916 -will be no exception."
Discusses National Issues.
The speaker then plunged into a
discussion of national issues during
which he said:
"Conceding that the present admin
istration has acted in good faith in
every particular and that it has used
Its best endeavor to formulate and put
Into effect policies it believed were for
the best interests of the country, yet
It has so signally failed in all of the
essentials that if the republicans are
true to their principles and have the

Regarding questions confronting the
present administration/ and growing
out of the European War, Mr. Clark
said in part:
"The true, fundamental doctrine of
the American republic Is that ever#
Duty Towards Mexioo.
Much time was devoted by the tem
porary chairman to discussion of the
Mexican situation and the problems to
ernment existed in iMexico, then our
conduct is shameful and could have no
df-fense for we have permitted our own
people to he murdered, wantonly and
willfully, and their property destroyed
without detfense or effort to save them
other than to warn them from the
danger zone."
Regarding the Philippines the speak
er said:
"It is known by all that with the
exception of a limted few on the Is
land of Luzon an-d those attending the
public schools established by the Am
erican republic, that ignorance, and
disregard of every restraint prevails in
the Philippines islands as much as It
did nt the time we accepted the guar
dianshiip for their use and benefit. Am
erican people are not ready or willing:
to relinquish their obligation solemnly
assumed because of some danger inci-
dent to its maintenance. They will
carry out that obligation in good faith'
and with due regard for the rights of
others Irrespective of the sacrifice it
may require.
Must Prepare For Defense.
"If we are to continue to maintain
our position as one of the powers of
the earth and to delevop our strength
for the betterment of mankind, this de
velopment must start thru our com
mercial relations. If we expect to be
a commercial nation and to take part
in tbe world's affairs, we must estab
lish and maintaJn the principle that
the high seas are for our traffic and
'the traffic of all others unmolested and
undisturbed, and we must at the sami
time develop a sufficient merchant ma-
for thp republican nomination for the
presidency. Senator Cummins.
"Merit and merit alone is the thing
that ha-« sustained his candidacy.
"Senator Cummins' candidacy be
comes more and more formidable every
day. In evpry state where the vote of
the people determined the choice of the
I candidate, where his name has been
rine to be a factor in the control of
1 wean-carrying trade. In order to do
either of these and as a factor in de
termining the policy of our foreign re
lations, we are brought face to face
with the question of preparedness.
There is but one reasonable, safe and
1 certain thing to do and that is: Pre
