THURSDAY, JULY 22, 1020. HARDING'S ACCEPTANCE. Party government rather than per sonal government, immediate restora tion of representative popular . govem iiicpt under the constitution, participa tion of the vice president in counsels of the cabinet, holding the heritage of American nationality unimpaired, im mediate declaration of peace by a Re publican congress, a "world alltanqe for peace rather than a military alliance, reduetinof armaments, our industrial reconstruction, natural and fair com iction. continuation of high wages with full return for wages received, a unan imous committal to economic justice, no abridgement of speech or freedom of press or assembly, collective bar gaining that does not destroy the equally sacred right of the individual, reparation to the railroads, improved highways from farm to railroad, co operative association of farmers, parti cipation of farmers in curing the ills to which they are . subject, government aid for highways and for conservation and development, a budget system, re duction of federal employes, a protect ive tariff, the leading merchant marine of the world, an ample navy and small army, regulation of immigration, revis ion of war tax burdens, full "and friendly understanding with Mexico, the enforcement of the prohibition amend ment so long as it is the law of the land, equal compensation for all men called to service in the World war, speedy ratification of the suffrage amendment and America as the su preme example of representative De mocracy and orderly liberty by which humanity is inspired to higher achieve ment these are some of the things to which Waren G. Harding commits him self in accepting the Republican nomi nation for the presidency. The whole speech forms a finished, thoughtful and earnest appeal to con servative Americans. There is no lack of progressive spirit but it is an or derly and permanent progress toward sane government, industrial and ag ricultural development and justice for the whole rather than privileges to a part. Perhaps it is too scholarly to appeal to the mob but it cannot fail to attract the lovers of justice, order and stability. Tlu're is a bold challenge to the Dem ocratic party on the dictatorship of its president ' in this statement: "No man is big enough to run this great re public. There never has been one. Such domination was never intended. Tran quility, stability, dependability all are assured in party sponsorship, and we mean to renew the assurances which were' Tended in the cataclysmal war." Equally bold is his declaration for an immediate declaration of peace and against the "barter fcf independent American eminence and influence for an obscure and unequal place in the merged government of the world. If the mistaken voice of Amer ica, spoken in unheeding haste, jled Europe, in the hour of deepest anxiety, into a military alliance which menaces peace and threatens all freedom, instead of adding to their security, then we must speak the truth for America and express our hope for the" fraternized conscience of nations." The "issue between military alliance with D Ol' HOW MUCH V A HUNPREP, v. Cnpyrlln ertain European 'that hoped-for diip which shall countries and world relation satisfy both con science and aspirations" is clearly drawn and cheerfully submitted to the people for a verdict. On the prohibition issue he places himself squarely behind the enforce ment of the law by saying: "We can not nullify because of divided opinion, we can not jeopardize orderly govern ment with contempt for law enforce ment. Modification or repeal is the right of a free people, whenever the deliberate and intelligent public sen timent commands, but perversion and evasion mark the paths to the failure of government itself." Taken as a whole Mr. Harding's speech clearly defines his attitude on the vital questions before the country md constitutes a platform upon which lie can'valiantly fight for his principles and seriously confuse and embarrass hi opponents.
