They will tell the world that they d(5 not believe we "tried to stab Germany in the back, while England and France held her down," but by voting for Pat Harrison will say, "We KNOW that Germany tried to stab us in the back." Vardaman has come to Mississippi to try to bolster up his waning po litical fortunes by making a few political speeches in a desperate ef fort to stem the tide that is flow ing so strongly towards Hon. Pat Harrison, who seeks to succeed Var daman in the United States Senate. Take it from us, Vardaman is going to cry with tear3 in his voice that he patriotically stood by the gov ernment, but his record, in black and white, stares him in the face, and is so well known to voters in Mississippi that he will have a hard time of it trying to fool anybody.

K. Vardaman, ' United States Senator, j !' Washington, D. C . My Dear Senator. ' Your bundle of. campaign literaturs wtt the request that I busy myself i ctrcnlatlng the same, received. No, Senator, I cannot comply with your re quest I am a patriotic citizen and lore my country, and I do not feel that I could esss.st you In your assault against the President of the United States and the interest of the Govern ment by distributing this literature. ' You and I do not agree In the course you have pursued during your term of Berr.ce In the Senate. You My boldly that you have no apologies to make for your course; that If It were aM to do over again you would do Just as you have done. I take It that this means that you would again filibuster and vote with the Re publicans and a few puny Democrats "the willful twelve" to defeat the Ship Purchase Bill, and thereby pau perize the farmers of the south by forcmg them to take 6 cents for cotton In the year 1914, as they had no con veyances In which to convey It to the markots of the world. After Germany, the lurking assassin of the sea, bad submarined, assailed and killed a number of American citl tens on the high seas, and trampled uoder foot our rights, under the laws of both God and man, you voted against arming American ships for self-protection; after a great many American citizens had been ruthlessly slain, and after the American flag had been assaulted, on the high seas, you voted against the decUratlon of war, the purpose of this declaration being to vindicate American rights and to uphold the lawal of all civiKzed nations. Yea, Senator, even after war was de clared, and it became necessary to hare an army -'to protect the rights of the American people, you voted against the Selective Draft and said that the boys- who were selected to de fund their country made you think of convict- Indeed, four months after wwr -was declared, and after we were flcttg'for the freedom of America, and On world, yon were Interviewed, and ym, said: "Ttaem again It was proposed If ws did not tight Germany now stab her In th-tck while England and France have her down that we would have to fight her alorre, and other excuses sr causes, Imaginary and real, for war were asslaned.. Now personally, I think the ca.se of thlis war was the Interference on the part of Germany with commerce between New York and London. I have always thought It was purely a matter of pecuniary profit and I think so still but I have no objection to discussion. If the sub marine warfare had not Interfered with business and profits there would, In my Judgment, probably have been no war." Really, Senator, did this interview express your feelings? You say now you vwouAd not change 'your course "dot Hn, 'i,' or cross a 'tt "if it were all, to flo over again. Aire you really sortons in this? You also stated ln.'a latter that Pres ident Wilson had submarined the pro hibition ship, and went heir to the bot tom of the sea. TUrts I do .not believe Imloed, yon' have dtane and. said many things thatilead me to-beliewe that you Bre not In, sympathy with the great maioritr dt American- seopUe. I b oeve, so frir as Amertoa is concerned this la adjust war Inq citizen of this great country. 5o, Senator, you and I do not agree as to your course. I think the Senate of the United States should have pass ed the Ship Purchase Bill, the Armed Neutrality Bill, the resolution decla lng war, the Selective Draft Bill, ami a great many other democratic meas ures, which you and a few puny demo crats and republicans have vote! against and in this way tried to tie the hands of our great President Feeling this way about it, I cannot support you, I cannot follow you long r, and I cannot distribute your litera ture, which I believe disseminates pot sun, as it is an appeal to the maasta for the purpose of placing yo in a position again where you oan still fetter your Government in the prosecution of this war. I have kept up with your course in the Sen , ate as best I could, and from your rec ord I find that you have never said one 1 word commendatory of England, Bnl glum, France, Italy, Serbia, or Rou i mania. The fact is all that you havu i had to say apparently was commenda ; tory of Germany. Your powerful voicc ! seems never to have been raised In d fense of the Allies, i Senator, I have alwaya thought yot 1 were a great man of the people, but ! 'your course has led me to believe that 1 your sympathy and feellnga and Judg ment are now against us, and that ' your svery act and deed hae been tt : deter and fetter those In offloe from j vigorously prosecuting this war to ( successful conclusion. You have com mended the acta of some of the Cana dians In rebelling against their ooun try when It called them. There ' praotlcally no sedition In Mississippi and If there Is, don't you think ths 'your acts are largely the cauae of it; You know when a great man goei wrong It la easy to take a following You seem to have pretended to offe' your services to the Army. Why thoult you offer your servfoes to fight and ti die In a war brought on by "the Inter ference on the part of Germany witt commerce between New York ant London?" Surely you would not havs offered to fight to assist and stove those rich New York and London profiteers, if such there are. No, Senator, I shall not scatter your literature. I shaTl stand by my conn try and do all that I can in my hum ble wsy to see that the right results are accomplished, and that Germany may be conquered in the end. If you still want your literature distributed, cdviso me to whom to deliver It and I i hi.'l do so. I do not feel that when my son sun rendered his life under the American fi -o in France that he was then asslst !i 3 England to atab Germany In the I -,cX I do not think It becoming of v ?j to make auch a charge against .-. .y unfortunate American lad In !' . nce, even though It might be your i vn son.
