Da j ton, p., Aug. 7. Pence for Amer
ica and the world by this nation' en
trance inta the league of nations with
"interpretations" not disturbing its
vital principle was pronounced to-day
by Governor James M. Cox, the Demo
cratic presidential standard bearer, as
his paramount policy.
In his address here accepting the
Democratic nomination, Governor Cox
ti'ilitantly championed the league as
1 roposcd by President Wilson, with in
terpretations insuring good faith and
understanding, and denounced what he
termed the dishonorable proposal from
Senator Harding, his Republican oppo
nent, for "a separate pea.ee with Ger
League or no league, the Democratic
nomine declared, is the issue between
the two parties "the supreme issue of
the century ," he said.
"The question is," Governor Cox de
clared, "whether we shall or shall neit
join in this practical and humane, move
ment. President Wilson entered the
league in our name. Senator Harding,
a the Republican candidate for the
presidency, proposes in plain words
that we remain out of it. As the Demo
cratic candidate I favor going in.
"The first duty of the new adminis
tration will be ratification of the
treaty," Governor Cx said, predicting
that friends of the league would rally
to elect a Senate with the requisite ma
jority for ratification.
Governor Cox said the "interpreta
tions" should state "our interpretation
of the covenant as a matter of good
faith to our associates and as a pre
caution against any misunderstanding
in the future. Assailing the Lodge
reservations at emasculating, Governor
Cox suggested two specific "interpreta
tioni," as outlined several months ago
in a newspaper article. One declared
America' continuance in the league
should depend upon the league's use
only as an agency for world peace;
the other, stated the understanding
that this nation could act only with
in the constitution, declared unalter
able by any treaty.
The door to other "interpretations"
was left open by Governor Cox, but he
sa!d that the Democratic platform
plank "speaks in a . firm resolution
against anything that disturbs the vit
al principle"' of the league.
No room for doubt was left as to the
governor's 'position on the league as
the pre-eminent political battleground.
As on other subjects, he stated his po
sit ion squarely.
"We are in a time which calls for
straight thinking, straight talking and
straight acting," he said, "It is no time
for wobbling."
In position, the league question led
the candidate's address and, to it, he
devoted 3.000 words of the 10,000 odd
' Prohibition Not Mentioned.
The prohibition amendment and Vol
stead law were not specified in the ad
dress, but Governor Cox promised em
phatically strict law enforcement.
"The constitution," he said, "is the
licence and limitation given to and
placed upon the law-making body. , The
legislative branch of government is
subjected to the rule of the majority.
The public official, who fails to en
force the law. is an enemy, both to the
ronsitution and to the American prin
ciple of majority rule. It would seem
unnecessary for any candidate for the
presidency to say that he dors not in
tend to violate hi oath of eftiie. Any
one who i false to that oath i morel
unworthy than the law violator bTin- !
"Moral- cannot eailv be produced
flayed by Governor Cox in scathing
terms throughout his lone address. A
"senatorial oligarchy" led by Senators
Lodge, Penrose and Smoot, Governor
Cox charged, selected Senator Harding
to lead the Republicans and fastened
"into the party platform the creed of
bitterness and hate and the vacillating
policy that possesses it." The Repub
lican stand, generally, was scored by the
governor, as reactionary and, on the
league question, he said the party's
candidate was bent A the irreconcila
ble hostility of Senator Johnson of Cal
ifornia. The Republican Congress, the
governor asserted, failed to pass a con
structive law or to reduce war taxes.
"Corrupt Auspices" Deplored.
Millions :in campaign fundi hve
been gathered for "the reactionary
caufee," the governor charged, deploring
election of a new administration "un
der corrupt auspices" and demanding
publicity for "the plain truth" regard
ing all contributions and disburse
ments. The Democrats, he added, would
not attempt "to compete by dol'ars."
He warned the country against 'V'tui
ning devices backed by unlimited prodi
gal expenditures to confuse and lure."
Governor Cox said he took up ,tne
Democratic standard "a free man." un-
fetterd by promises."
"We want a chancre, he said, vtroni
the y world of yesterday, whero in-
I ternaf iimal intrisrue made people mere
pawns on the chessboard of war. We
want a change from the old industri.il
world, where the man who toiled "vns

only lot and portion. We staftd at the
forks of the road. One leads to high
er citizenship, a freer expression of the
individual and a fuller life for all. The
other leads to reaction, the rule of the
fw over the many and the restriction
of the average man's chances to grow
upward. But I have abiding faith that
the. pitfalls will be avoided and the
rij-lit road chosen.
"The leaders opposed to democracy
promise to put the country 'back to
normal.' This can only mean the so-
called normal of former reactionary ad
Diinistrations. "Our view is toward the sunrise of
to-morrow. The opposition stands in
the' skyline of the setting sun, look
ing backward, at the old days of re
fect ion. '
L.-1 ...... Tribute to Wilson.
A graceful tribute to President Wil"

stewing the Republican platform for ab-
ence of "a line that breathes emo
ion of pride" in the nation's war
achievement s. lie said, that while sol
diers fell in the trenches Mr. Wilson
was broken in the enormous labor of
his office." '
The Republican proposal for a sep
arate peace, Governor Cox declared,
would be "the most disheartening event
in civilization since the Russians made
their separate peace with Germany."
Citing difficulties in the plan, Gov
ernor Cox said that, if accomplished,
"no nation in good standing would
have anything to do with either of
"This plan would not only be a piece
of bungling diplomacy, but plain, un
adulterated dishonesty, as well," he
said, inveighing against any sehcim
without associated powers.
"This act would either be regarded
as arrant madness or attempted inter
national boss ism," he added.
Discussing domestic questions. Gov
ernor Cox denounced profiteering at
length and promised that profiteers
should "suffer the penalty of the crimi
nal law."
Fair Return for Capital and Labor.
Fair returns for both capital and la
bor were advocated, the nominee also
approving development of both "into
large unit without injury to the pub
lic interest." Collective bargaining by
labor through its own representatives
was approved hy the governor, who

Denver. Colo., Aug. 7. Two hundred
soldier under Colonel C. O. Ballou ar
rived here early to-day from Wyt
Logan to maintain order, just as lead
ers of the Tramway men' union voted
to recommend calling off the street car
nien' strike, which has been followed
by two days of violence resulting in
the deaths of three men and wound
ing of a dozen persons last night.
The tramway men were to meet at 9
o'clock this morning to take a vote on
the recommendation of their executive
committee. Governor fchoup in a state
ment at Colorado Springs said that
the action of the Union leader-would
not halt the arrival of troops. Five
hundred more soldiers were under
orders at Camp Funston to leave early
to-day. .
In a statement issued shortly after
the announcement of the union lead
ers, Frederick W. Hild, general man
ager of the tramway company, ail
nnunced. that the striking carmen
would be taken back but that there
would be no working agreement with
the union and the union would not be
recognized. Ihe slafvment lurther
declares that preference in filling va
cancies would be given the strike
breakers employed by the company to
run cars.
the call for federal troops was
issued last night when a mob attacked
the hast Denver car barns and was
reiielled with rifle fire. Three men
were, killed and a dozen persons, in
eluding women, arirls and fcovs. were
wounded. Several similar gatherings
had been broken up earlier in the eve
ning by the police with the assistance
of a thousand volunteer recruited
from American I-egion members.
The leader of the strikebreaker at
the Fast Denver car barns declared
that the shooting there wa caused by
attack of the mob on an automobile
load of Strikebreakers who were arriv
ing at, the ' car barn. Stone and
brick were hurled at the car and the
men in the car barns replied with rifle
fire. Hundreds of person in the neigh
borhood were attracted by the firing
and four children, two girls and two
loy. and a woman, were among those
hit bv bullets'.
Total Dead Five.
The ri4.ing of last night brought the
casualties resulting from the strike
disturbances to five dead and 50 known
injured. Heavy property loss to the
tramway company and the Denier Post
also resulted.
Seven members of the union com
posing the executive committee in
charge of the strike were convicted of
contempt of court yesterday, and
ordered to call off the strike. The
charges were based on the calling of a
strike in face of an injunction issued
by dudgt Greeley W. Whitfnrd, in the
district court. They were to be en-
lencetf to-day. Action ot the union
heads in recommending that the strike
order be cancelled will have a liearing
on the sentence, .Judge Whitford announced.
Colonel Us Hon first action follow
ing his assumption of control of the
city was to send n company of troops

The colonel said he hd rcceied re
ports that resident of that vicinity,
coniKwed largely of railroad and fac
tory employes, were planning t return
to the car barns before daybreak in
retaliation for the action of strike
breakers in firing into the crowd.
Membei of the American Legion,
who had guarded the barns during the
night, wen? retained to supplement the
regular troops. The remaining regu
lars were kept at the auditorium a a
reserve fon-e.
The troops were instructed to hoot
if necessary, but only as a last resort.

When It Collided With Another Ma
chine Near Middlebury.
Midllebury, Aug. 7.-me man wa
slightly hurt and three escaped when
two autos vame together at the en
trance to the Xash bridge over the
Xew Haven river early last evening,
one machine plunging ! feet down the
embankment. If it had cone a foot
more it would nae nasiieu nno me
water. The machine were thise of
F.rnest Hammer, whose houe i near
the bridge, and Warren IVlphia cf
Cornwall, who had with him Harold
(adv. Krnest Prevost and Roy Foster
of Middlebury. The latter went down
the bank and the top being up the
csTiipants were saved. One of Fo'er
legs ws sl'ghlly hurt.
The sum ,:,0 in money and Lib
erty bonds ? , tolen from the safe
in the off'C? the D. A. Perry Real
Kstate aj in the Howland building
between 7 o'clock Thursday evening
and 8 o'clock Friday morning, it was
ascertained yesterday afternoon. Of
that property $200 or more was in bills.
When Mrs. Elizabeth Lagore, book
kaeper and cashier for the firm opened
the safe yesterday moraine, a was
her custom, she noticed that the mon
ey wa gone but she thought that a
member of the firm" had taken the
money out to deposit, since the de
posit slip which had been pjaced with
the money was gone. There vva no
disorder in the safe, o that obbnry
was Vot suspected by the bookkeeper
until she had interviewed the members
of the firm, papers and deeds being
left in their customary places and the
safe door locked. '
After the member of the firm had
been talked with, a search of the safe
was made and it wag found that in
addition to the money three $"0 Lib
erty bonds had been taken. The thief
or thieve left two check, amounting
to $32 even though one of the (hecks
for $25 was signed.
One other evidence of robbery was
then recalled by Mrs. Lagore, who re
membered that when she reached the of
fice. Friday morning the doo of the of
fice wa unlocked. At this time this
did not arouse any suspicion' in the
mind of Mrs. Lagore a she considered
the door might have been left un
locked by one of the firm the evening
before. So far there are no clut3 to
the perpetrator of the robbery.
C. W. Perry could not ay for sure
that he had locked the safe Thurs
day night, and ao far as' know n none
others but those connected with the
office know the combination. The in
vestigator concluded that the af wa
left unlockedand entrance to the of
fice gained in a comparatively easy
manner., -
About four year ago fhi office uf-
fered a similar experience though the
amount of money missing was mucli
lighter. Young lads with a -master
key made the break at that tim?, but
it is the belief that this wa not the
work of boys, but someone old"r.
The money consisted of five-, ten- and
twenty-dollar bills for the most part.
