Governor Cox was considering counter moves against what he be lieves is an eleventh hour attempt of Elihu Root, hacked hy Senator Hard TTtTtf fttt ft t MM MMMM MM tbe Uum ARTICLE Any war or threat of war. whether immediately affecting any of the members of the League or not, is hereby declared a matter of concern to the whole League, and the League shall take any action that may be deemed wise and effectual to safe guard the peace of nations. In case any such emergency should arise, the secretary general shall, on the request of any member of the League, forthwith summon a meeting erf the Council. It is also declared to be the friendly right of each member of the League to bring to the attention of the Assembly or Coun cil any circumstance whatever affecting international relations which threatens to disturb international peace or the good under standing between nations upon which peace depends. Tlie chief purpose of the League is to safeguard the peace of the world, and while a war or threat of war between non tucmhers of the League might not at the beginning affect a member nation, if the threat were carried out or the war continued, member nations might become involved and an other world war ensue. Clause 1 of Article XI enables the TiPsum thrmirh tl, Council to take up and deal with any international matter. which, if permitted to develop, might endanger peace. Under clause 2 of this article it is declared to be the T "friendly right' of any member of the League to call the at- teution of the Assembly or Council to any thing that is likely to affei-t peace between nations. 4. The Assembly of the League is a world forum where the grievances of a race or a people, or their aspirations for natur- al independence or freedom may be presented and discussed. It is the one organized medium in the world through which a t race or people may ask for sympathy or support of the larcer nations of the world. It is through clause 2 of countries like Ireland may be hearing. The (vise of Ireland could ference because the conference uons oi max Kinn wjueii iut not altect territory belonging to the defeated nations. In an address September 4, 1910, at Indianapolis, Presi dent Wilson stated : The one thing that those doing an injustice have most reason to dread is publicity and discussion. Under Article XI the very sensible provision is made that the peace of the world transcends all the susceptibilities of nations and governments, and they are obliged to consent to discuss and explain anything that does affect the understanding between nations. At Salt Lake City September 2:5, 1019. the president said: There was not a member of that conference with whom 1 conferred who wanted to put the least restraint upon the right of elf-dctermination. who wished to put the slightest obstacle in the way of throwing off the yoke of any jrovernment if that yoke should become intolerable. This does not guarantee any country, any .government, against an attempt on the part of its own subjects to throw off its authority. The United States could not keep its countenance and make a promise like that, because it began by doing that ver thing. The glory of the United States is that when we were a little ldy of 3,000,000 people we threw off the power of a great empire because it was not a power chosen by or consented to by ourselves. We hold that principle. We never will guarantee any government against the exreise of that right, and no suggestion was made in the conferences that we should.. The Irish question has poisoned the relations between America and Omit Uritain and has become the source of al most as much trouble in Ameri.-an politics as in British. The United States, if it were a member of the League of .Nations, would have the right to ask the .League to take up the Irish question as a constant cause of ill-feeling in British and American relations. (Jreat Britain consented to this action fwhen it ratified the Covenant. It does not follow, however, that Great Britain would be bound to accept the solulion the League might propose. But light would be turned on the grievances -of both sides and public opinion, when rightly formed, is a great adjustor of wrongs.

Henderson arriv ed in this city last evening on - his rounds of the stale. He left Verington jestcrday and spent a short time in C.ardtierville and other points along the mute. He expected to spend today in this city, but on receipt of word from Reno urging him to be there and also to par ticipate in tonight's Democratic rally along with Mr. McAdoo, he had to leave. He will return to this city early next week, when arrangements will be made for a public meeting and he will then address the Carson people on the issues of the campaign. In reply to the question of how the campaign looks, he said: "Nevada is undoubtedly Democratic. In every section that I have visited. and I have uracticallv covered the State, the sentiment amves lailv forJ Cox and the League of Nations. As'an'one don't believe it, ask any moth- the covenant is explained and its nee essity made obvious, the neonle will ingly adopt the proposition. The onlv question of its acceptance heretofore was because of the misrepresentation made by Republican papers and speak ers. Tlaced in a fair light the Lnague receives endorsement everywhere. The women are the league's heartiest advocates, and there is hardly a section in the state but what women are tak ing up the cause of the league, as no more wars are wanted by the mothers. It was they who furnished the men whose memorials are now written. "As far as my own candidacy is con cerned, everything looks splendidly. 1 have met the great masses of the peo ple in the cities and towns of the state and I have met those in the outside sections, and from the tenor of their reception I see no reason to have any doubts of the result. The state is as Democratic as it has leen for the past several elections.

Though handicapped by the loss of Melva Cameron, De Neze Brown and Madge Pilkington, mem bers of lat years' team, the girls show some excellent material and there is hope of another good team this year. Armory hall is being used as a floor and though it is small and very smooth, it serves the purpose very well. FOOTBALL Football will have to be given up for this year, according to Mr. McKeown, but there will be some hope of a team next year, providing some of the small er high schools can be interested in the game. At present Reno is. the only school which plays the game and ow- to deflect the Democratic vote to any other party. "As for the editorial in the Journal of the 19th inst.. accusing me of a re versal on my stand on the League of Nations, it is not only the purest rot, but absolutely false. In the first place, I have not even beeu in touch with the Democratic headquarters ia San Francisco, in this campaign, and I have never even talk ed the question over with the leaders of the party. Thev know nw stand 'ind my record on the covenant is clear. 1 ' voted with the administration and thej administration reservations.

"As a rule, it is useless to pay any attention to the utterances of the Reno opposition papers, but in this case the misstatement is so gross that even the leaders of the Republican party know its falsity and place no credit in the statements. My record is public a-.u! in the public's hands. It is consistent and I intend that it shall remain so. "1 have been compelled to make some pretty hard trips over the state, but every day has been worth while, as it has put me in touch with our people. The state as a whole is wearing a very prosperous look. The Democratic par ty has done much for the whole peo ple, and a considerable amount has been reflected to the far west, Nevada included. I hope to keep going until the last moment and feel absolutely sure that when the votes are counted it will be shown that Cox has carried the state and Nevada will again be able to support a Democratic president with Democratic congressional repre sentatives. Cox's election, to my mind, is certain. I ing to the large number to pick from, j it is far out of our class.

Tuesday afternoon the pupils were told to bring pencils and something to w rite on into assembly. Of course, this caused a great deal of excitement and wonder. In the assembly Mr. Mc Keown passed mental examination pamphlets around. These consist of a small pamphlet containing ten tests, on reasoning, arithmetic, selections, in formation and the like. These were given to the soldiers and had much to do with the selection of officers. The pupils were given a certain time to complete each test and as speed and accuracy counted much many are won dering how they came out in the tests. Miss Wooldrige (to Fred H.)
