Senator Hiram Johnson, at Min neapolis, in the last speech he made before abandoning the trail of the President and returning to Washing ton, strikingly emphasized the truth of the charge that the opposition In the Senate to the Treaty of Peace is not so much opposition, to the trcaty.wlth its League of Nations, as opposition to Woodrow Wilson. - Mr, Johnson spoke at Minneapolis, -as elsewhere on his trailing our, os tensibly to point out the objections to the Treaty and to show why it should not be ratified by the United States. Of course there are objec tions rto the Treaty and of course no intelligent man would need to be a trained lawyer to make some sort -of argument agains it. But Mr. Johnson seems to have made no at tempt to discuss the Treaty. on its merits and demerits. In fact, so far as the press re port of his speech indicates, he did not discuss the Treaty at all. He might just as well have been con structing an argument against the boll weevil or the stiff-arm shot in golf as against the Peace Treaty and the League of Nations. Ho directed bis assault not against the Treaty, but against Woodrow Wilsono. He -dug up Mr. Wiil3on's record, or what Mr. Johnson said was his record, be fore we went to war with Germany, tind to his own satisfaction at least lie convictetd the President of having been a very weak and fatuous and Inconsistent human being. He did not go the length of proving that the man had ever stolen sheep or murdered his poor relations, but he did draw a long indictment against him which if proved in court ought to bring upon him a sentence at least of deportation as an undesira blo citizen. As an opponent of the Peace Treaty Mr. Johnson was not in evi dence in this speech, but as an op ponent of Woodrow Wilson he made x.B masterly an effort as if he were a candidate for Justice of the Peace and from the raging stump were de molishing the man who despite his damnable record dared to oppose his ambition. All of which is cumulative, if su perflous, evidence of the real na ture of some of our present states manship at Washington. Louisville Courier-Journal. . The Horrors of War. (Lieut. John M.

There they told me about 7,000 boys under the fighting age who were the survivors of 30,000. When the Germans, Aus trians and Bulgarians squeezed the -Serbian army out of the country and drove what was left across Monte negro and Albania to the sea, these boys were shooed out also. They crossed the border of Serbia, on the way to the sea, 80,000 strong, with out food.
