4 THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAN, PORTLAND, JULY 11, 1920 - THIRD PARTY REVIVES WAR Ti S 1 Republicans and Democrats Alike Are Condemned. FEWER LAWS ADVOCATED Committee of 4 8 Chairmen Sees No Hope In Promises of Either National Platform. '. J .-'' .... CHICAGO. July 10. The republican and democratic parties were de nounced as "the right and left wings of the same bird of prey" at the opningr of a proposed "third party" national convention here today. Sounding the keynote of the assem blage called together by the commit tee of 48 to adopt a platform and place in the field another set of candidates for presidency and vice presidency, Allen McCurdy. tempor ary chairman, charged that the two big parties had evaded paramount do mestic issues at a time when what the country needs is "fewer laws and more freedom." ' The abolition of special privilege. Mr. McCurdy said, was the issue around which the new party would appeal to the voters In November. He said the party proposed effecting that said the party purposed effecting that and removing the sources from which privilege derives its power. Public Ownership Advocated. "To accomplish this purpose," he declared, "it proposes public owner ship of transportation and of the principal basic resources of the coun try and declares that all land held out of use for speculation should be forced into use by taxation." Attacking the republican and demo cratic platforms Mr. McCurdy said their only difference is the number of words used to say nothing. "The republican bid is bold," he continued. "It reads out of its coun cils every man and woman who ever stood for any form of human rights: adopts a pbitform that evades, equivo cates or straddles every living issue; paves the way for a war by which, in exchange for the lives and treasures of the people, Mexican oil shall be delivered to the interests; indorses the infamous Ksch-Cummins hill over the protests' of farmers, workers and informed citizens, and consistently crowns its work by nominating as randidate for the presidency of the United States in the year 1920, a proved, steady, wheel-horse politician, guaranteed to stand without hitching ' who learned all the politics he ever learned in the satisfactory and thor ough school of Marcus A. Hanna and Joseph B. Foraker, way back in the golden age marked by the Standard Oil scandals. Democrat i- Platform Brazen. "The democratic bid is more than i bold; it is brazen. With mild reserva tions, it not only, claims a partisan credit,, which belonga to the whole nation, for fighting and winning the war, but it declares that it admin istered the conduct of that war with- - out the taint of scandal.

July 10. (By the Associat ed Press.) Not since the advent of constitutional government has Japan seen-euch " political turmoil as that prevailing during, the present sitting of the diet. . The government appar ently is serene in the conviction that it will have the support of Selyu Kal, or majority party. Nevertheless, in the fierce attack which the oppo sition is making upon it. a display of liberal and free speech has developed that .observers believe is destined to have an important effect on the de velopment of constitutional govern ment In Japan. Repeated allegations that the gov ernment was controlled by the mili tary. especially with regard to its Siberian policy, were followed by the sensational announcement of Yukio Ozaki. former minister of justice who recently returned to Tokio from a visit to America and Europe, that henceforth he would abandon all parties and wage an independent fight to defeat militarism. M. Ozakl declared that only through the over throw of militarism could the good repute of Japan in the world be re stored to its former luster. He said he had abandoned- the Kensei-Kai. opposition party, because his new at titude conflicted with the policy aaopted oy me party several years ago. when it supported the naval ex tension policy at present in opera tion. Budget Devoted to Armament. "The introduction of a budget of which one-third is devoted to a bloated increase of armaments is the height of absurdity," M. Ozaki as serted. "Japan never will win her rightful place among the nations .. t;i .. i r r tuA . r. e the military clique. World suspicion has turned against us because the world sees in Japan an aggressively Imperialistic and militaristic coun try." - The climax of the attacks in the diet against the cabinet was reached yesterday when Representative Nagai. a youthful new member and a pro fessor in Waseda university, de clared: The Lenine autocracy is reigning in the west;, the Hara autocracy in the east." He charged that the government, by its unconstitutional dissolution of the last diet to avoid aetion on uni versal suffrage, had invited danger ous thoughts of class strife. The gov ernment's action, he declared, was against the spirit of the constitution granted by Emperor Mutsuhito. Mherian Policy la Scored. Another member, Kotaro Mochizu ki, referred to the anti-Japanese agi tation in California. He scored the Siberian policy and said he possessed proofs that different views were held in the war and foreign offices con cerning it. While America had sent nfy 7000 men to help the Pzecho- S.

The third declared that by its blun dering economic policy the govern ment had plunged the country Into a financial crisis. The fourth set rortn that the way the government had con ducted its foreign policy had gained the derision and contempt of the pow ers. The fifth claimed that the gov ernment's indefinite Siberian policy had resulted in the recent tragedy at Nikolaievsk. Siberia, where 700 Japa nese were- massacred by the bolshe viki.
