ARTILLERY CHANGES MM
NORTH PACIFIC COAST DIS
TRICT TO BE ABOLISHED.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. S. A day
of militant campaigning against the
Paris league of nations was closed
by Senator Harding tonight with a
speech in the Kansas City convention
hall, replying directly to the appeal
for league support recently addressed
to voters by .President Wilson.
In answering the president's declar
ation that the league covenant would
not take from congress the power
to declare war, the republican nomi
nee pronounced the obligations of ar
ticle X so clear and unmistakable
that congress would be compelled to
fulfill them or bring dishonor on the
"This obligation is absolute and un
qualified," said Mr. Harding. "When
ever certain specificied circumstances
arose, no matter how much we might
regret it, we would have to keep our
promise or sneak out of it. Let no
one be deceived; the choice would be
between two tilings, war or dis
honor." Article X Attacked.
Article X bore the brunt of the can
didate's attack in his address here,
but during the day in other Iowa and
Missouri cities he aimed his blows at
many tfther parts of the covenant.
The whole scheme he characterized
as a "militaristic" alliance, which in
actual operation in Europe had shown
itself "not worth a continental."
"The league that we are not going
to have," was the way he described
It at St. Joseph.
In other speeches he assailed the
covenant's provisions on the Monroe
doctrine, voting pc .'er in the league,
the withdrawal privilege, and labor.
Stressing the labor feature In a talk
to packing-house employes at South
St. Joseph, he declared he wanted no
covenant that would drag American
labor standards down to those of the
The senator made 11 speeches and
in each struck out at the Paris league.
Seven were delivered in Missouri, long
a bitterly contested sector of the
Polish Invasion Cited.
In his speech tonight the nominee
cited the invasion of Poland as an ex
ample of the complications into which,
he said, the United States easily could
be drawn under article ten. He re
ferred to Cireat Britain's failure to
furnish aid to the little republic and
said he would not look with satisfac
tion on any such a failure by this na
tion if It were a league member.
"The statement which the president
made to the country a year or two
ago," said Mr. Harding, ''emphasizes
his inflexible determination to pro
cure the adherence of the United
States to the league precisely as the
covenant is written. We know from
authoritative declarations that tha
mind of the democratic candidate and
that of the democratic president are
In perfect accord. We may assume,
therefore, that the president speaks
for the candidate and announces the
policy which he will follow if elected.
League Opponents Held Ignorant.
"Those who oppose the treaty in its
present form and there are quite a
number of respctabie and intelligent
people who do oppose it are charged
with 'gross ignorance and impudent
audacity." He (the president) tells
the people that there is nothing in
the covenant which in the least inter
feres with or impairs the right of
congress to declare war or not to de
clare war. according to its own in
"The fallacy of this position has
been exposed again and again Article
ten, in the words of the utmost pre
cision, binds us to an obligation
which, under certain easily foresee
able circumstances will require the
use of armed forces."
Convention Hall Parked.
The convention hall, seating 12.000,
was packed long before the candidate
appeared, hundreds standing in the
aisles. Police lines were broken by
those clamoring for admission and a
tig block of seats reserved for the
reception committee was taken by
those holding no tickets.
When Senator Harding came in the
crowd stood and cheered for more
than six minutes. As the applause
died down a civil war veteran ap
peared on the stage, waving the na
tional colors, and the crowd renewed
Its cheering and hand-clapping.
Ex-Major Beardsley, chairman of
the meeting, first introduced Mrs.
Harding, and after she was cheered
the senator was presented and began
his speech by saying that he "had
become convinced that you love Amer
ica more than you love the league."
After another burst of applause, he
added: "I'm willing to leave It to
you whether you prefer the consti
tution or the covenant. 1 am satis
fied that you prefer American free
dom to old world involvements. So
I have come to you to preach the re
publican doctrine according" to the
text of 'America first.' "
More Economy Urired.
In a plea for business stability and
development of home markets, Sen
ator I la i d i up said that, although
the federal reserve act was passed
tinder a democratic administration
a republican sentiment developing for
yars should have a frreat deal of
credit. He added that in the admin
istratlon of the act there had been no
favoritism of a particular section.
"Europe owes us $10,000,000,000," he
continued. "I. know what I would
try to do if I had the authority. I'd
ask Europe In neighborly considera
lion if they didn't think we ought to
figure out how and when they would
pay. I'd say, 'Let's scale your inter-t-t-t
if necessary, but let's agree on a
: M ay to pay in negotiable coin. If we
could make this readjustment we
could wipe out the excess profits
Speaking for government economy,
the nominee said that for one thing
he would give discharge papers to
"service men who are traveling about
at government expense" to further
the democratic cause in the campaign.

The brigade of mobile coast artil

The consolidation of the two coast

districts within the continental limits
of the United States will conform to
those of the corps areas bearing the

Taft'a Attitude Asked.
In view of Senator Harding's stand
against the present league. Gover
nor Cox asked whether ex-President
Taft and other republicans favor
ing American membership would con
tinue supporting Mr. Harding. The
governor also asked whether "Judge
Taft's candidate is giving him an en
tirely different assurance from his
speeches." and requested Mr. Taft to
tell "in front of the curtain, what is
going on behind."
The governor's address closed a
strenuous day's campaigning In
which he delivered 13 speeches across
Kentucky. In virtually all he prea ched
the league of nations and progres-
sivism and flayed the "senatorial oli
At Paducah he reiterated that the
oligarchy" was seeking to "annex
the presidency" and also said that a
great menace, next to scrapping of
the league," was the prospect of four
appointments soon to vacancies on
the United States supreme court.
Regarding Senator Harding's posi
tion, the governor said tonight:
Under the pressure of threats from
Senator Borah, the senatorial candi
date for the presidency is now out in
the open and his creed is 'America and
America only." To use his words, 'We
must consecrate ourselves to the wel
fare of America and not to the rest of
the world.' Must we forget that we
are still a part of the world, the
dominion over which is in the bands
Trade With Others Cited:
"If we are to live commercially we
have to trade with others. If we are
to cut our products to our own con
sumption, the mere adoption of that
policy would carry us back 60 years
ndustrially. But there Is something
more than the practical side. Are we
to close our eouls against every
thought of sympathy and help and
leadership? Are we to say we have
no Interest in Ireland, nor Germany,
nor Australia, nor Russia, nor Poland,
nor the other nations of the world
struggling for democracy? Are we to
close our eyes to the picture of star
vation which spreads over half of
Europe? Can we deny the league of
nations which brings an end to expen
sive armaments, establishes credit and
permits people who are willing to
work to have bread?
"I am curious to see what ex-
President Taft will say about it all.
In the face of open pronouncements
by the senatorial candidate to Sen
ators Johnson and Borah. ex-Presi
dent Taft has attempted to persuade
the friends of the league that his
candidate after all will be all right.
We have the definite statement of
the senatorial candidate that he is
against the league now in any form
regardless of any kind of reserva
tions. Are we to understand that in
the face of these public avowals
Judge Taft's candidate is giving him
an entirely different assurance? If
that be true, can Judge Taft Worthily
continue a party of the conspiracy of
deceit? He owes much to the Amer
ican people. They have conferred
upon him the greatest honor within
the gift of the people. In common
gratitude, in common good faith and
in self-respect he should tell in front
of the curtain what is going on be
hind. This is no time for dissembling."
