Eastern Press Deeply Stirred
hy Appeal to Voters.
G. 0. P. SUPPORT RECALLED
"Partisanship Gone Mad," One Com
ment; "President Had No Choice
but to Speak," Says Another.
The action of President Wilson in
appealing to the American electorate
to return a Democratic Congress in the
November elections is the subject of
spirited comment in the Eastern press,
bharp criticism and vigorous defense of
the President's action is voiced in ed
itorial columns from which excerpts
are given below:
Chicago Tribune Some weeks ago
the President announced that "politics
is adjourned," yet now at the moment
when it may be expected to. have the
y maximum of partisan advantage, Mr.
'Wilson reconvenes politics and, step
ping down from the international ros- !
trum In which he has been praised and !
loyally supported by his political op
ponents, he appeals to the country
against them. The appeal is one of the
mcjt deplorable events in the history
' of the American Presidency, setting an
example, unless it is promptly repudi
ated, as demoralizing for the future of
our politics as it is unjustified by the
facts of the present time.
Chicago Evening Post The appeal of
the President for an all-Democratic
Congress is a denial to the people of
the right to vote on what kind of a
peace they want. That is Its cardinal
sin. The Senate we elect November 6
will not be "a war Senate," as the
President's proclamation so unfairly as
sumes. It will be the Senate that
passes on terms of peace. Do we want
a "soft peace," with the United States
Bitting at the council board as Ger
many's advocate, or do we want a "con
clusive peace," based on "unconditional
surrender?" In electing the next Con
gress we have the only chance pre
sented by our system of government to
answer this mighty question, and the
President seeks to deny us that chance
by raising the false issue of a refuta
tion of the Administration's conduct of
Chicago Journal (Democratic)
President Wilson's appeal to the Amer
ican people to elect a Democratic Con
gress is not an exhibition of partisan
ship, it is a belated reluctant reply to
outrageous partisanship on the other
aide. It takes two to adjourn politics
Just as it takes two to keep the peace
and when the G. O. P. leaders refused
to let politics be adjourned, the Presi
dent had no choice but to speak out.
He could not well have spoken in more
temperate and dignified language.
Chicago Dally News In appealing to
the voters of the country to put none
but Democrats on guard In ashlngton,
President Wilson has placed partisan
ship above personal fitness and above
loyalty as the .test by which to judge
a candidate for Congress. In this "most
critical period our country has ever
faced," faithful support of war meas
ures Is not to count on the side of any
Republican candidate for Congress, if
the President has his way with the
voters: whereas, lukewarmness or
worse, shown 'toward the war by
Democratic candidate is not to count
against him. This is partisanship gone
