Scheme to Deceive American
People Is Charged.
'Ex-President Should Stop Prac
tices, and Keep Xames From Con
tempt," Declares Senator.
BOISE, Idaho, July 26. (Special.)
Xn a statement sent to friends In this I
state. Senator Borah openly attacks
William Howard Taft for his attitude
with regard to the league of nations
and the campaign carried on by the
league to Enforce Peace of which Mr.
Taft is an active member. Senator
Borah has aroused unusual interest in
this state through his declaration that
if M. Taft wishes to preserve an hon
orable name from contempt he should
put a stop to the misrepresentation or I
resign as a member of the league. In
view of Mr. Taft's recent proposal for
a compromise on the peace treaty and
the league of nations covenant, the
statement of Senator Borah is looked
upon by Idaho republicans as signifi
cant. Senator Borah and Mr. Taft !
locked horns once before. That was
during" the 1912 convention at Chicago
when the republican party was split.
Leagrue la Attacked.
In his statement Senator Borah says:
"We have an organization in this
country called the League to Enforce
Peace. That league is industriously
organizing public opinion in this coun
try for the purpose of effecting ratifi
cation of the treaty, and a very large
portion of the material which it sends
to the senate is unreliable. It is mis
representation of the facts and the men
who send it here are in a position to
know it is a misrepresentation of the
Senator Borah says he has in his pos
session the evidence of three different
instances in which resolutions were
put through under the management or
inspiration of the league. lie referred
to the resolution, in one instance,
passed by the Federation of Catholic
alumnae at St. Louis indorsing a league
of nations. He shows by a communica
tion he received from Ada K. Gannon,
governor of the alumnae, that the reso
lution was not intended as an indorse
ment of the league.
Statement Held False.
The communication says in part: "The
statement made that the International
federation of Catholic Alumnae in con
vention at St. Louis indorsed the pres
ent form of league of nations is not
correct. I am personally responsible
for an amendment to the resolution
sent to us for adoption by the League
to Enforce Peace. The amendment car
ried unanimously Indorsing a league
which would give justice and freedom
to all the world and protesting against
the covenant in its present form.'
"There are other instances in which
the League to Enforce Peace sent
abroad resolutions asking for an

cial.) With the best horse racing pros-
dorscment of this league and they were pective in year? and wi;h unusual inter
changed," 'writes Senator Borah, "and
a league to accomplish certain thingrs
was indorsed and sent out as an
dorsement of this league. There are
hundreds of thousands, and even
millions of people who believe that I
league can be framed which will ac
complish justice and which will insure
peace, and those same hundreds of
thousand of people believe that this
league will not do that, and therefore
they are opposed to it.
Scheme Is Denounced.
'I denounce the scheme as a delib
erate programme to deceive the Ameri
can people. It is well worthy the or
eanization. backed by, as it is, inter
ested financiers of the United States,
who for selfish purposes, would make
this government underwrite its Invest
ments in Europe. The first thing the
.x-nresident of the United States ought
to do. if he wishes to preserve an hon
ored name from contempt, is either to
put an end to such methods as is now
being carried on or withdraw his name
from the organization."
fiepublican leaders in Idaho are
erreatly interested in the demand Sen
ator Borah made for a referendum vote
of the people on the league covenant's
adoption or rejection, which, although
it would not be binding on the senate,
would give a clear idea pf public senti
ment on this mooted question.

PENDLETON, Or., July 26. (Spe
cial.) Umatilla county's wheat crop
from all appearances, will total at least
4.500,000 bushels. In average yield per
acre and weight it is better than last
year. The farmers have one complaint:
smut this year is worse than for many
years. Sections formerly exempt are
now affected.
Harvest is in progress in every sec
tion of the county now. but in only one
district the Lcho-Nolin country is it
well under way. There about 40 per
cent of the wheat is harvested. Help
has become somewhat scarce and ex
perienced warehouse men and machine
hands find little difficulty in obtaining
immediate employment.
A considerable quantity of wheat has
feeen crnlpped to coast mills, but none
tor ea-tern markets and none for ex
port. It is reported that some sales
have been made here at a 5-cent pre
mium, offered by millers who are anx
lous to get grain for early delivery in
order tostart operations.
Millers have reported that the per
centage of gluten in the wheat, while
till relativery high, is elightly less
than last year.
