Special Despatch to The Reformer Copy right 1920. DAYTON", O., Aug. 9. Governor Cox in his speech accepting the Democratic nomination for the presidency, took his stand squarely on the Democratic plat form with respect to the league of na tions, but he went further and, interpret ing that platform, specified the reserva tions which, if elected president, he would accept. lle( named first, one that gave America an absolutely free hand and le gally notified the other nations that noth ing vx the treaty or league could interfere with the right of congress to declare war or with the constitution itself which he pointed out could not be contravened by any treaty but was the supreme law of the land. In his second reservation, the Ohio governor would insist that America Btate fat the outset that she was rntprinp- tl. league only with the understanding that it was to maintain peace and comity. This, Mr. Cox believes would enable America to remain aloof from any military alliance or other war-making controver sies. Governor Cox endeavors in his speech to show that Senator Johnson and Sen ator .Harding are in absolute accord in op posing the league of nations aud he takes the K epublicans to task for abandoning tfie position they were in when they fav ored ratification of the peace treaty with i enervations. The difference between President Wil son and Governor Cox, and there is a substantial difference, lies in the willing ness of the Democratic nominee to accept an all-embracing reservation that would reassure the American people concerning the fea'r. tif super-government- aivd bs of sovereignty which Republican orators have successfully spread in the last year of debate. Mr. Wilson used to brush those fears aside as non sensical and would make an academic or legal argument sup porting his contention he never did give formal or outspoken approval to any set of reservations and although he . often said he would accept interpretative reser vations the impression which opjtosition speakers implanted was that he wanted the treaty ratified without the crossing of a "t" or the dotting of an "i." Gov. Cox wnses this weakness in the AYilson defense of the treaty and says that although the language of the covenant is clear and although "any high school boy" knows that the constitution cannot be swept aside by any treaty, nevertheless he is ready to include reservations which would absolutely prevent misunderstand ing abroad and would carry reassurance at home. Governor Cox tackles the many prob lems before the country with directness and although some people may disagree with conclusions he" reaches nevertheless in almost, every instance he goes at ques tions wiMi some solution. "Thin is no time for wobbling," ex claimed the governor as he made his position clear on the league of nations, on strikes and labor, bn prohibition and REV. DR.

Perhaps the most interesting part of Governor ( ox's speech .Was, his proposal to reduce to a Jnj'.uiinum all war taxes on the incomes of. wage earners, . salaried and professional " peop'c, agricultural pro ducers and small nilcsmrn.' He sugges ted that instead of an excess "profits tax, there be placed a small tax of about' one. and one-half per cent on the total tf the business of every going concern. Inas much as practically all other taxes would be removed, Governor Cox believes the small tax on gross business would scarcely be felt especially, by big business which has been accused of .transferring as much as 10 per cent' to the consumer because of the inequality of the excess profits tax. Senator Harding considered evyriously the same suggestion of a sales tax but was dissuaded from putting it in his speech of acceptance by some of his advisers who contended that the same tax in other countries had not nrowl "onomicalIy round. It is true, however, that for the last year, a steady campaign has been carried or by business men to have the sales tax '.substituted for the excess pro fits tax a:d that sentiment in the Re- nnblican conarress was favorable to the idea but certain of the political leaders feared it might be a mistake to revise tho tax liws on the eve of a presidential election. For this same forbearance. Gov ernor Cox t;ikcs the Republican party to task, arguing that although the Republi cans have had control of lxth houses "of congress since Jhe war they have done nothing to 'modify the irksome tax laws Governor Cox discussed free speech and labor a'ld omplovment problems with the annm Rort of directness contending, tor instance, that too many , employers want to see the government use the bayonet to out down strikes.

What, is said to be the largest co-operative or ganization of farmers in the United Stntes has iusC been formed here. It will market the grain of the 40,000 members of the Nebraska Farmers' union, eliminating the middlemen and brokers. This organization, known as the Na tional Co-onerative company, with a rnnital author zed at ffa.UOU.UUH, as cording to C. II. Gustafson of Lincoln, president of the state union and organ izer and president of tho company, has 1.500 locals, 300 grain elevators, 50 general stores, three creameries and two flour mills, besides nearly a hun dred shipping associations. The union also has a livestock com mission ofltce in the yards of Omaha, Sioux ISty.'St. Joseph and Denver, and a big wholesale exchange in Omaha. A regular commission business will be conducted' for local companies partic ipating, Mj. Gustafson . adds, and net profits will be prorated on the basis of business done, after .the company pays 8 per cent dividends on its stock. Moreover, the corporation plans to find a market for all farm products, to locate and build elevators and to give technical assistance in bookkeeping and accounting methods to members. rri . a ne young clergyman was commis sioned a captain in the 8th Kentucky cavalry of the Union army in 1801.

Performances All Made In One Week These performances show what to expect of the Essex you will get. They are not a surprise to the more than 40,000 Essex owners, although their' equal in so many instances was never shown by any other car. Some of thje hardest tests were made by Essex cars that had already traveled oyer 35,000 miles equivalent to 7 years of average driving. Some were on original tires that had done from 15,000 to 20,000 miles. Many were owner cars owner, driven taken, without special preparation from their or dinary day to day work, to break the speed, reliability and economy marks of their localities. Women piloted some of the runs that showed as high as 28 miles to the gallon of gasoline. They set new marks for fast time over long distance driving where men with many cars hesitate to venture. Is there any important car quality left for Essex to prove.? , ECONOMY . v i With.,- 49 cars in eyery. .type of performance of from 5 to 72 miles per hcur ana over an Kinas 01 roaas rne average was 18.9 miles per gallon. 21 cars were sent on an average 216-mile economy run in Connecticut, some over mountains and others on a level course, averaging 18.7 miles per gallon. One car ' with 35,000 miles service averaged 21.2 miles per gal lon. A Hastings, Neb., vroman drcve 109 miles to Lincoln averaging 28 miles per gallon. Tom women dro'U from Los Angeles to San Francisco and return, averaging" 22.3 jniles per gallon, and an other Essex made the round trip between the two cities, 846 miles, with an average of 23 miles per gallon. RELIABILITY Reliability, which is a larger factor in car economy, than even gasoline mileage, was proven in every lo ' cality in non-stop motor performances and in long dis tance inter -city runs. ? ' An Essex, which, .bad, seen, 16,000 miles service, wa3 driven from Columbus, Ohio, tc Washington, D. C, 403 miles, in 11 hours, 40 minutes. Another Essex that had set the best time between Eos ton and Fort. Kent, on the. Canadian border, made four round trips within a week, totaling 4,052 miles. An Essex which had previously gone 28,000 miles made a rcund trip between San Francisco and Los Angeles over a route of gradc3 and mountain passes, frequent ly far from water supply, with its gear shift levers, hood and radiator all sealed. It averaged 22.8 miles per gallon. SPEED The inter-city records for time in nearly all localities are new held by Essex. From Buffalo, N. Y., to Rochester the distance is 88 miles. An Essex did it in 80 minutes. The St. Louis, to Kansas City record, 303 miles, was taken by Essex in 10 hours, 17 minutes. Another Es sex went from Yakima, Wash., to Seattle, 180.1 miles, over Cascade Mountains in 4 hcurs, 56 minutes, lower ing the railroad time by 1 hour, 44 minutes. HILL-CLIMBS In every section Essex set new performance marks on the most difficult hills. The Rim O' the World in California, a climb of nearly 5,000 feet in 8.8 miles, over mountain reads, was made in 17 minutes, 23 seconds, beating all previous" records. The .31st Street hill in Washington, D. C, was climbed by an Essex on high. No other car had done that. And bn the Tilden Street bill an Essex went over the top at 51 miles per hcur and the same car towed a 6-ton truck with load 16 blocks up hill. , NON-STOP MOTORS At many points non-stop motor performances were jnade, during which the car was for a greater time used in country and inter-city running. ' No attempt was made at rpecd but in no case was the motor stopped during the period cf test. Scores of cities saw the Essex in constant operation for 144 hours. At one pcint p, two-weeks' test 336 hours was made of a motor in constant operation. Literally hundreds of tests like these were made, in all parts of the country. What they reveal is exactly what you may expect from the Essex you buy. Can you place equal con fidence in any car that has not so vividly established its performance?
