Special Despatch-to The Reformer Copy right 1020. MARION, )., An-?. 0. Senator Hard ing has touched off a 'fuse in the presi dential campaign that is more than likely to ' Imrn the lingetri of both tje I!epublica,n and Democratic candidates if they don't watch out. For admittedly the question of the prejudices and wishes of the for eign-born voters in America is one of the -most --delicate of all political subjects to handle. ', The senator in his front porch, speech to Wayne county Republicans struck out boldly against the league of nations as a "world experiment" which threatened the concord of American citizenship be cause, as he said, it is folly to think o: trying ta blend aliens in American unity when the land of their adoption sits in judgment on the land from which they came. Now the truth is the league ot na tions has been attacked on the groum that it would cause friction anions for eism-born residents in the United States and defended on the basis of American eosmonolitanism beinir the useful factor in mediating disputes abroad. But the Notice to Gas Customers CHANGE 'IN GAS RATES The constant increase in the cost of all materials used in the manufacture of gas has been so rapid in the past few months that we find it absolutely necessary to make a change in our present gas rates. , . We have been in hopes that conditions in the country might improve so that this change would not be necessary, but we find that not only has the cost of materials continued to increase, but there is a grave difficulty in being sufficient material to supply the gas companies with their requirements. . The serious condition facing our gas company has been brought to the attention of the Government in hopes that they might take a stand to see that such material as gas oil and coal have priority over the other materials. We are filing with the Public Service Commission the follow ing changes in our present schedule of gas rates to become efTee- tive September 1, 1920. We shall make every possible effort to con tinue to serve you to the best of our ability and at the- lowest possi ble rates. Just as soon as conditions improve in any way, we shall be more than pleased to adjust our rates in accordance with the cost of materials used in manufacturing gas. First 2,000 Cu. Ft. Per Month at $2.25 Per H Cu. Ft. Next 3,000. Cii. Ft. Per Month at $2.00 Per M Cu. Ft. Next 5,000 Cu. Ft. Per Month at $1.85 Per M Cu. Ft. Next 15,000 Cu. Ft. Per Month at $1.75 Per M Cu.Ft.

To the Irish voters, the Republicans pre appealing ior support on tne theory that the league or nations somehow . - . - 1 fA ft through Article requires Amejrica- to support England as against Ireland. fllus. the: Democrats stoutly deny, 'asserting that ' Article 11 in the league covenant would enable America for the' first time to approach-' England otbi-ulry and make rue maner oi man ocu-tienuiuanoji an international jnjsteau;. ot a domestic ques tiori as England claims it is. - ; " ;". ' To the Italian voters, the Republicans ire appealing-ur j support, . oecause oi President Wilson s "supposed antipathy to t. ! 1ca: -1 1 . -i.v i; ' ' Italian aspiraiiino " i'iuuic ijuesiioii. The' Democrat, would ..probably be happy to see the Fhuiie: controversy settled "to enable them' to point to, Italy's accept ance of a settlement" as a proof of Italian approval of the concept of nations. J o the German' voters. . the appeal ot the Republicans need ; not be more than an emphasis pnWjlsohisin which, is still an abhorrent term 'smiong those German- Amerieajjs'. who. ettttliat- American parti? cipation, in the war-as unnecessary or among those who thovigiit the accusation of 'hyphenate," was too Wsely applied. On the other ,h?ind, if .the German born voters were 'influenced by -the wishes of the country oi their birth, they would side with the Democrats who want to see the league -of nations established because it is a fact that Germany fully expected the United States to be a member of the all-important reparations commission and to licln keep down the size of the indem nity, it is a striking confirmation of the American viewpoint expressed at the Paris conference by President ilson that the imposition of an unlimited in demnity now has been abandoned. Ger many fnllv counted on American infhi- .i i 'i? i j. t ence in tne league or u;iuons u get uei a "souare deal." Rit it is a serious ques tion bow much German sympathizers in America are in touch with the de sires of the Fatherland and how much moie vital to them i the expression of a protest against the Democratic admin istration which offended them during the war. To the Toles, the Republicans and Democrats will present different aspects of Poland's nbzht. 1 he Democrats will say the troubles in Poland today are due to neglect bv the powers and especially the inability of America to help through the league of nations while the Republi cans would answer that if this is true President Wilson's stubbornness kept America from being in the league to ren der, that help. Amomz the Czecho-Slovaks and Jugo Slavs, the assistance akeadv rendered by AmAnV In the new republics in Central F.urone will . be used to political advan fnce in the rlainiinsr of credit by the Democrats for the part plaved by Pres ident Wilson in the establishment o! those; countries and by the Republicans for the financial assistance and relief ren dereJ in Austria and elsewhere in Cen- iml l'nrnne hv Herbert Hoover who has announced his support of Senator Hard inir.
