ONE WASH" startles with 'its' quick re sults. ' W. B. Eastman, Druggist. " (Continued Irom page 1) I ask all patriotic Americans to consider just what is meant when the President says that in the pres ent Congress "the leaders of the min ority although unquestionably pro- war have been anti-administration. These leaders supported the Admin istration when-a declaration of war was needed. They supported it when there was v. demand for the draft. They supported it when wTe sent the army overseas. They supported every demand ivy money whether by taxa tion or by loans. They supported it or gave it initiative and guidance on every issue where it stood for vigor ous prosecution of the war; and they supported it on these issues when half the leaders of President Wilson's own party opposed him when he had commited lrmself to war measures- and yet President Wilson now makes a partisan appeal m favor of the Dem ocrats who opposed the war measures and agi-viitit the Republicans who sup ported them. Now, what does Mr Wilson mean when he speaks of these leaders as being, although "pro-war," yet anti administration?" He means that when the War Department was ad ministered with utter inefficiency they investigated the matter and insisted upon efficiency. He means that when they found that nothing effective was being done m ship-building they insisted thai the work be speeded up He means that when they found thai six hundred million dollars had bee spent for airplanes and. yet that not an airplane had reached our soldiers at the front they insisted that our sol diers should get the airplanes f o; which the people had paid. Mr. Wil son regards it as "anti-administration" to demand that our gallant men at the front receive the guns and auto rifles and tanks and airplanes and shoes and clothing for which Con gress has appropriated so many bil lions of dollars. The entire offense of the Republican leaders in Mr. Wil son's eyes K that they have demanded that inefficiency, waste and extrav agance be remedied. Such a demand he treats aa "anti-administration." In other words, the attitude which pa triotic people regard as pro-United States he regards as anti-administra tion. -- 1 I hold, on the contrary, that these Republican leaders have in a great crisis shown complete indifference tc party and complete devotion to the Union. They have disinterestedly supported Mr. Wilson in everything he did that was right, and fearlessly oposed him where he was wrong Over half the Democratic leaders whom he is now supporting opposed him when he was right, and supported him when he was wrong. He urges that the people return to Congress the men who were anti-war but who shielded tin: failures of the adminis tration. He urges that the people de feat for gress the men who were pro-war but who sought to remedy the failures of the administration. He puts loyalty to the Nation second, and adherence to his personal leadership first. Th.j Republican leaders whom he assails have put loyalty to the N a tion ahead of all other considerations and have conditioned their support of every executive official solely upon the efficiency with which that official serves' the Nation. And I ask you to consider one thing more, you Republicans and Independ ents and you Democrats who decline to put crir.ging subservience to any man, ahead of the Republic. Indeed, I appeal most of all to the high-minded and patriotic Democrats whose boys are over in the army side by side with the toys of their Republican neighbor 3, -"and who do not wish to see the 33 loyal neighbors treated as enemies of the Republic. President Wilson says that. Republicans are not good enough to serve the Republic in Congress at this time. But they are good enough to die for the Republic in the army and navy! They are good enough to pay the taxes and subscribe to the Loan. We have sent our sons and ;. our brothers to spill their blood like water overseas under the flag ; we have given ' our strength and our money without stint to serve the country at home, to float the Loans, to back up the war activities of every kind; and now we are told that the blood of our sons, and the money saved at tho expense of our wives and little child-en, do not entitle us to any word m saying how the war is to be waged! Or what are the terms on which peac? is to be made, or what shall be our policies after the war! Mr. Wilson says that this is no time for divided counsels. Yet the Consti tution of tht United States says that he must counsel with the Congress of the United States. It is mere insol ence for the servant of the people to say that he will not counsel with those other servants of the people whom the people have elected for1 the ex press purpose of giving him counsel. The world would be better off now bv hundreds of thousands of fearless lives and by many billions of dollars of treasure if Mr. Wilson had been willing to supplement his own self sufficient ignorance by the counsel of those who- would gladly have coun seled mm wisely, but who would not creep into his presence as slaves. So far as I know, no . Democratic Congressman has resigned his seat to go to th3 war. But six Republican Congressmen have- resigned to go into the army and already one of these has died. These men are deemed fit to die for the country; but the Presi dent says that they and those like them are not fit to sit in the councils of the Nation and to take part in so shaping our policy that our men shall not die in vain. The President says that this is his war, not the people's war, and that the half of the people wno have been most resolute in favor of the arm and efficient prosecution ot the war are hereafter to be ex cluded from all share in. its manage ment, and from all say-so as to the peace which is to crown and justify it. We can pay with the blood of our heart's dearest; but that is all that we are to be allowed to do ; and yet the pi ice we pay, and the peace the Nation is to get for that price, ire to be settled by the agency or the xid of the men of cold heart who do rot fight themselves, whose nearest kin are not in danger, who prepared 'or war ioc at all, who helped wage 'he war feebly, and who are content ivith a craven peace.
