Wilson Held Responsible for Lifting

MEDFORD, Or.. Oct. 26. (Special.)
This latest appeal by Woodrow Wilson,
the politician, to the people of the
United States to return a Democratic
Congress this Fall is an unbearable
insult to all Republicans.
In 191$ he made a similar appeal to
and see how quick our great American I return him to power "because he kept
military ana iinanciai macmnerj u out or war." This appeal caught a
fine string of Republican voters.
Will this appeal catch a similar string?
Instead of appealing to the people to
return only loyal men and patriots to
congress, the President has asked them
to return only Democrats. He him
self has lifted the floodgates of par
tisanship; all patriots will look upon
bis act as a calamity.
PRESIDENT'S ACT IS DEPLORED
REPUBLICANS SUPPORT NATION
Country Is Everything and Party
Nothing. War-Time Slogan.
BY JOHN G. RAND. .
(Prominent attorner and business man of
BAKER, Or Oct. 2. (Special.) Re
publicans almost without exception
since April 6, 117. have stood by the
President in every measure he has ad
vocated. At bis suggestion politics was
supposed to be adjourned during- the
war and only those known to be loyal
were considered as worthy of being
voted for. The country was everything
and party nothing to every worthy
member of the Republican party.
Loyalty appeals instinctively to Re
publicans and the fact that the Presi
dent of the United States was himself
a Democrat did nofenter into the mind
of anyone. He was the President of
the United States, elected by a majority
of the American people, the Com
mander-in-Chief of all our forces, and
we were fighting for the liberties of
the world, including our own. These
considerations entered only into our
regard for him.
Now, when the President stoops from
his high office and asks us Republicans
to elect only. Democrats to Congress,
even to the extent of electing such
men as Henry Ford, the pacifist, the
man who would pull down the Amer
ican flag from his factories and never
permit it to float there, who would
have his son exempted so that some
other man's son would be compelled
to take his place and perhaps to die
for his country, the only answer which
Republicans should give is to elect no
one to Congress except Republicans,
providing their loyalty is unquestioned.

President Wilson's Latest Appeal
Held Grievous Mistake,

Former Chairman of Republican State Cen
LA GRANDE. Or, Oct. 26. (Special.)
All America Ss fighting this war;
America is fightlnir this war behind
President Wilson: he Is our leader In
every movement and we, as Americans,
are behind him with every life and
every dollar in the Nation. That he
should depart from what seems the fair
and impartial path politically is a mat
ter of deep regret.
Is the United States Army made up
from the Democratic party? Is the
United States Navy made up of only
Democrats? Is President Wilson, as
Commander-in-Chief, going to demand
that no one but Democrats be per
mitted to fight for the flag, or that
Republicans be ostracized and elimi
nated in the great war work at home?
The President has made a grievous
mistake and one that the whole Nation,
Including many members of his own
party, will regret.

ciaL) I was shocked on reading the
almost unbelievable statement of Presl
dent Wilson advising votes for Demo
cratic aspirants to office. Records dis
close support of Republicans on all Ad
ministration war measures were' more
ready than from members of his own
party. This adherence to party politics
when pontics is adjourned Is discon
certing, to say the least.
The direct, eloquent and convincing
manner in which the President
answered the Raisers government ask

and satisfaction to all loyal Amer
icans. That this universal confidence
should be so shaken by the President
descending to partisan politics in so
short a space of time is regretable.
