HTieaATE .ca IbJE COUNTY TO U.S. MUSI COOPERATE WITH BRITAIN Declares That This is The Only Salvation For The World Editor's Note: David Lloyd George former prem'er of England and the world's most spectacular figure. In an exclusive interview with the In ternational News Service the first since his resignation declared that the good will and co-operation of America and Great Britain Is the only salvation for the- world. The statement was a message to "Lin coln's common people." The form er premier appealed for American participation In ths League of Na tions, saying- that changes would be made if the United States could be Induced to enter. The famous Welsh statesman, while pursuing the strenuous campaign tactics of the late Theodore Roosevelt, intimated that his Ideal Is Abraham Lincoln. With the eyes of the world upon the British political campaign a war between liberalism and toryism this Interview takes on the Import ance of a historic document. By F. A. WRAT (Copyright 1923 by International News Service.) GLASGOW, Scotland, Oct. 2S "My message to Lincoln's 'common peo ple,' who are now in the wilderness at' this juncture of the world's his tory, is: Work on, hope on, unfalter ingly, unswervingly, and we shall win through to the promised land." This statement was made to In ternational News Service exclusively by former Premier David Lloyd George In the private salon car of hia campaign train as it was rush ing towards Glasgow, where he wi'4 carry on his flgbt to rc-wln his lost laurels. (Mr. Lloyd George's opponent, A. Bonar Law, was nominated for par liament on the Tory ticket at Glas gow two days ago.) The former premier's car was be decked with Hewers which had been showered upon him by admirers as the train was speeding northward through the rolling hills in trium phal progress. Mr. Lloyd George has constantly been making speeches to enthusias tic crowds at every station. He has appeared upon the platform Jovial and smiling to wave greetings to the villagers as the train passed through villages and hamlets. The former premier seemed tired when he received the correspondent after a short but nergatic speech. He still seemed tired as he began the Interview, but his eye lighted up and he seemed to be revitalised at the mention of Lincoln's name. After an introductory word or two Mr. Lloyd George exclaimed emphat ically: "To secure the best happiness of the world and a happy Issue out of our afflictions, co-operation between Great Britain and America is essen tial to insure the world's peace. "I am reluctant to say anything regarding the best specific for Pr rnanent maintenance of Anglo American good will, fearing that my words might possibly be misunder stood or misinterpreted. "But I insist that th closest good win between the two nations Is the only salvation for the world If we are going to be spared awful calam ities like those of the past eight years. "Great Britain and America are the only two countries that are able to gaze at the outside world from an outside viewpoint. They are both detached; both are able to take an International view, perhaps America better than ourselves. "In ideals, in permanent trend of thoueht they (Great Britain and the United States) walk the same path. Their Joint action alone can preserve the world's eternal peace. Both na tions hate war equally. "Because of this common aim and common understanding, I would give almost anything to induce America to enter the League of Nations. Un til this convs to pass the league can never attain its real strength and function at the highest or exercise Its proper authority. "Because oi this, I would say to America with all sincerity and all the earnestness I pos-sess: If you have any doubts or suspicions re garding the League of Nations, tell us eo we will try to dispel them. If you desire information or have miss conceptions we will to satisfy you.' "If you would prefer the term 'Association of Nations' instead of 'League of Nations' thejj let us change the name. "I beg America to throw the great weight of her moral influence side by side with the league. Only there by can the v.-orld be made safe." Asked when he was going to the United States, the former premier replied: "It has always been one of the ambitions of my life, but I cannot look ahead. One reason why 1 want to go Is because I am a democrat not in the party sense but in the literal meaning of the word. "I have always thought that I understood Americans. When meet ing them I gt their viewpoint na turally and they seem to set mine. It would be a joy for me to pay a long visit to the United States.'" Albert J.

It aDDears that arovernment i pehsonnel is back near peace time strength, and operating expenses for the various bureaus have been cut to the bone. It is not thought pos sible to reduce them much more without crippling efficiency, and warning against this has been given the budget bureau. In some in stances, department chiefs assert, economy has been enforced at the expense of real efficiency. Treasury officials already were disturbed by the certainty 01 a $700,000,000 deficit this fiscal year. ending June CO next. Their prob lem now is aggravated by the pros pect of a still larger gap between income and outgo the twelve months following. This year's deficit may be greatly reduced by the internal revenue bu reau's war on tax dodgers. Treas- officials are confident it will bring an enormous volume of hid den tax money into the treasury vaults. The sweeping measures adopted to force evaaers of taxes into line, warrant prediction $500. 000.000 or more will be squeezed out of wallets of wilful tax-slackers. elephItsIre GOOD FEEDERS "It will take three tons of tim othy hay and several large bags of oats to fe?d the John Robinson military elephants which will be one of the many features at Orak Shrine circus in Hammond, Nov.

He brought a great crowd to his feet at the close of a speech that last two and a half hours. The Orpheum theater was jam med to the doors. Beveridge pointed out the. mis taken thory of government held by the democratic party. He said that the democratic policy is to look, upon all commerce and industry as dishonest and to watch it with government commission and bur eaus of which the railroad labor board is a relic of their adminis tration.

Europe must pav its debts to America, he declared. He said that thero are a million and a half more soldiers in the European standing armies now than before the war. Speaking in Gary last night, on the birthday of Theodore P.oosevelt. Albert J. Beveridge declared that "it mattered not at all to Roosevelt that to take a stand upon a public question might offend this, that or the other group." and while he dil not want to alienate any group "if such alienation was the price he had to pay for upholding what he be lieved to be right, he paid that pric gladly, with Etout heart and smile." Mr. Beveridge saiU Roosevelt was annoyed by a certain element of er ratic and wild' political camp fol lowers whom he termed "the lunatic fringe of American liberalism."' and that before his death some of this uncombed element began to de nounce him because he resisted with all his might their destructive and absurd notions. After his death those of the "lunatic fringe." Mr. Beveridge said, attempted to seizf' upon the 'itle "progressive"' ami brand as "reactionary"' all those who did not agrae with them that eco nomic law should bo repealed and established order overthrown and constitutional government abolish ed. He said the term "lunatic fringe'-' is at this time "peculiarly applicable to certain men and move ments." Mr. Beverilge's address before an audience that filled the theatre to overflowing, was preceded by a red fire parade. More than 300 automo biles participated in the illuminated procession. Mr. Beveridge w a s cheered as he rode through th-? streets to the nesting. Thomas Roberts. Lake county Republican chairman, was master of ceremonies. Fred Crumpacker of Hammond, son of the late Edgar P. Crumpacker. who was for a long time a member of congress, spoke briefly in pre senting Mr. Beveridse. Mr. Beveridge declared that If Roosevelt were alive today he would be in the thick of the nVhr lo safe guard constitutional government : would oppose group domination o.' government and resist th soriali' tic doctrine row hein.; urged to de stroy capital by taxation or any other element.
