Substance of Plan Regarded
as Worth Keeping.
Iorel;n Ptmrrs, Says Famous Kd
' itor. Care Nothing for Welfare
of United Slates.
VT11 tit
CHICAGO. March 13. Colonel George
Harwey, editor of the North American
Review, 1a an address before a gather
ing of bankers tonight, declared the
Hague of nations covenant as drawn
"is doomed to failure. but thai "the
aubftance of the plan has not been and
will not be abandoned.
. Colone Harvey declared that "America
Is only a cat's paw" and that no for
eign power cared for the welfare of
tne United States and was not giving
a to it. except to gain advan
tage and to obtain control of America's
'at resources. He asserted at the
outset that he would not under any cir
cumstances "in the common phrase,
aid" the president, but. he aserted. "we
are prone to make a fetish of our
rhitf magistrate and to regard his
ecry act as of origin so nearly ap
proaching divine as to be practically
immune even to discussion.
The' speaker said that the people
were asked "to divest our nation of its
full independence and Its most cher
ifehed tradition and to sacrifice, in part
:.t least, our sovereignty." The present
'e;tijue proposal, he continued, "is per
jctual. a covenant from which none of
the parties can withdraw with honor
or without in effect declaring war
upon the rest of the world.
" The president Is so fully committed
to the project and so firmly convinced
of the support of the people that a
test of the sentiment of the country is
Inevitable. said Colonel Harvey
"Whether he will succeed tn convinc
ing the delegates of the other powers
of his ability to so entwine the league
notion with the peace treaty proper
'as to enable him to coerce the senate,
scims doubtful, but, failing that, there
Is hardly a question of his fetching
home some kind of proposition upon
which to raise a definite ijsue before
the country."
