CARSON CITY DAILY APPEAL, THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1920
The Carson City Daily Appeal PUBLISHED EVERY EVENING, EXCEPT SUNDAY, BY THE NEVADA PRINTING COMPANY T. D. VAN DEVORT Editor and Manager Entered as Matter of the Second Class at the Postoffice at Carson City, Nevada, undef Act of Congress of March 3, 1879 One year by Carrier One year by Mail TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION $12 (X 9.00 the Democrats of the house and himself were as much opposed to "gag rules" as in 1910, and no majority of the rules committee had the right to bring in an important bill, involving more than a billion dollars in taxes, without giving the house a chance to amend it if that body thinks best. a-00 ' THAT'S THE RIGHT SPIRIT Carson City Daily Appeal is the real live advertising medium of this section as evidenced by its carrying a larger amount of advertising than any paper it the city. ' THE HOME PAPER Sir : Inspired doubtless by your timely essay showing how white paper is wasted, a friend observed today at lunch (call it lunch instead of luncheon to observe space) that the restaurateurs might help by denuding lamb chops of those pretty but unessential little frilled pantalets.-John Goldstrom in JNew York bun. no THE NEW TOPIC It's like a smiling friendly face, It's like a voice you long have known, You see it in some distant place And rush to claim it for your own. The paper from your old home town Has bridged the long and weary miles And with it you can settle down Among familiar tears and smiles. It speaks for every friend you know; It tells of scenes you yearn to see; It brings back joys of long ago And tells of joys that are to be. And as you run its columns o'er Your yesterdays come trooping back; You fancy you're at home once more, And golden seem the letters black, Its speech is one you understand, It tells of griefs that you can share, It brings you, in that foreign land, Glad messages to banish care. There, among scenes and faces strange, The old home paper seems to be The faithful friend that doesn't change, A friend that you are glad to see. 1 know not just what heaven is like. Nor just what joys beyond life's tide Await for me, when death shall strike And I shall reach the other side. But thfs I know when I have gone To dwell in realms divinely fafr, My soul will yearn to look upon The old-home paper over there.

KNOCKING THE ELEGANCE OUT OP IT An enterprising Gotham florist invented a catchy advertising line which read: "Say it with flowers." It had its appeal to the young beaux of the town and he did a thriving business. Other florists took it up and it was seen in almost every florist shop in town. The other day down in Fulton street market a romantic fish dealer had this sign up over his stall: "Say it with shad.'' New York paper.

L. That the president under his oath of office to observe and sup port the constitution of the United States will veto the Knox peace resolution when it reaches the White House, was forecasted in the senate when Senator Hitchcock, ranking Democrat of the foreign relations committee, asserted that subterfuge propositions offered by the Republican majority in lieu of the peace treaty were "all doomed to defeat." It is possible that the two houses will agree-on a composite "peace resolution" fashioned along the lines of the measures offered by Senator Knox and Representative Porter, and it will be ap proved by partisan majorities in both houses after agreement in conference committee. It will be impossible, however, for the reso lution to be passed over the veto of the president. In vetoing the peace resolution, the president probably ftould find no better reason than that advanced more than a year ago by the Republican fioor leader of ihf senate. Senator Lodge. In a signed article in the Forum, Senator Lodge wrote that it would be dishonorable for the United States to attempt to make a separate ' peace with Germany. It would not be playing fair, he said, with the allies of this government and would amount to national dishonor. At that time, however, a separate peace resolution was not con templated, and Senator Lodge was candidly discussing peace mak ing by orderly processes. Senator Hitchcock reminded the senate that the Republican majority had made five attempts to frame a peace resolution to take the place of a constitutional .peace treaty. The first, he said, was a declaration of peace, but Senator Knox discovered that congress did not have the power to declare peace, that proposal having been de bated and rejected in the constitutional convention. Finally, lie .said, the resolution as now presented proposed to declare the war at an end. Senator Hitchcock asked what difference there was be tween the two propositions. "Congress lias no power to declare peace," said Senator Hitch cock, "so now we have raised the interesting distinction between de claring peace and declaring war at an end. What is the difference?"! Senator Hitchcock recalled that in December, 1018, Senator Lodge and other Republican' senators were condemning all sugges tions that the United States make a separate peace with Germany. He quoted Senator Lodge's views in the Forum article, which said in part: "We "can not, in the first place, make peace except in company with our allies. It would brand us with everlasting dishonor and bring ruin to us also if we undertook to make a separate peace." "Do the supporters of this pending Knox resolution," asked Senator Hitchcock, "want to brand us with dishonor and bring ruin upon us? In one provision of this resolution it is stated that the United States does not waive any of its rights under the treaty it lias rejected. Could anything be more ridiculous than to assume and indicate that we have any rights to waive after we have refused to ratify the treaty which grants them? "The treaty itself provides that 'the treaty will enter into force for each power at the date of the deposit of ratification.' Yet the pending resolution gravely provides that we waive no rights under it as though we got some rights by refusing to ratify the treaty. "Altogether the five desperate attempts to defy the constitution and substitute a resolution for a treaty make a fine display of legis lative experimentation." - -net - . . FAVORS THE BONUS DR. W.

Phone' 41, j22-tf Recalling the rules fight in 1910, which curbed the power of the speaker and the then Republican committee on rules, former Speak er Champ Clark has warned the G. O. P. majority of the house that unless they change their ways, they will ride to another fall. Representative Clark spoke in connection with reports that the rules committee would bring in a "gag" rule to put through the soldier bonus legislation without giving the membership of the house an opportunity to amend the bill in any way. The former speaker declared he was emphatically in favor of the bonus, but was as strongly opposed as ever to special rules that shut off debate and opportunity of amendment. Sir. Clark said the Republicans had been considering two plans, one for bringing the bill in under suspension of the rules, which "meant no opportunity to amend and no motion to recommit; the other under a special rule which also would limit debate and forbid amendment. The former speaker said he and the majority of his Democratic colleagues were in favor of soldier bonus, or adjusted compensation, legislation, on the theory that nothing was too good for the men who won the war against Germany.
