Washington, March 29. WASHING
TON BUREAU OP THE JOURNAL)
After -8S Republican senators have been
Hlgrned and delivered in opposition to the
.LeagAie of Nations, what next? How
much of their - opposition - is - political?
How jnuch will they give way under
pressure of public opinion? What have
"they agreed to do?
Thirty-nine senators, standing : to
J. gether, are highly important, numbering
as they do more than one-third of the
senate, when a two-thirds majority is
needed to ratify the peace treaty. - It is
important to remember, too, that not
- less' than three or four Democrats ln-
dorse th stand the 39 Republicans have
taken, and that of the 10 Republicans
who refused to sign, not wre than half
' of them really disagree with those who
did. except that they did not think it
wise to Join in a "round robin.
Careful reading: of what the 29 Re
publicans did shows that there is plenty
of room in it for graceful retreat and
reversal of form. The text of the round
robin resolution breathes friendliness for
some kind of a league of nations, de
claring "sincere desire that the nations
of the world should unite to promote
peace and general disarmament. Then
it says..
Get Reader to Flop
"The constitution of the League of Na
tions in the form now proposed to the
peace conference should not be accepted
by the United States."
Thfrn Is no utatttment in thin remark
able document as to what the signers
- will be satisfied with. Beyond question
there are going to be changes in the
original draft of the League of Nations
constitution as a result of the world dis
cussion now going on. When these
changes are made, without forecasting
what they are likely to be, it will be
come easy for signers of that docu
ment to nay, "These changes make it
. better, ana now I can support It."-
The Republican declaration, in its in
ception and execution, was 90 per cent
political.' Lodge and Knox had the pride
of their opinions to maintain, a great de
sire to show In some form lhat they
had strong backing. Penrose and Bran-
degee were intent on forcing an early ex
tra session. Sherman and other Wilson
haters were casting about for anything
to discredit the , president.
From all these sources came tremen
dous pressure, -The witches were brew
ing' the broth : "grimalkeft calls, 'tis
times" , It was difficult for Republican
senators to: withstand the appeals and
covert .tnreats tnat were made, in vww
. of the loopholes left in the document for
suoaequent wriggling out. It is surpris
ing 'that 10 did decline to sign.- - .

to the murder and evidently carried all
these years. A photogr- ph of the man
under arrest has been sent to Mrs.
Yoakum, who, together ' with Sheriff
Gage and other old residents of Coos
county, feel certain that the photograph
is a picture of Landis. Detailed descrip
tions are now being sent to the officers
at Arkansas City. y
Marshfield, March 29. A man believed
to be M. D. Landis is in custody In
Arkansas City, Kan., suspected of com
mitting a murder In Coos county 18
years ago. A newspaper clipping car
ried by Landis caused his arrest. In
May,. 1901, Jess' Kudaily was murdered
near Coquille, while working for Mrs.
S. A. Yoakum, well known dairy owner,
whose , home is on Coos river and who
for several years was deputy state dairy
and food inspector. At that time Eu
daily felt heir to a small amount of
money. He went to Coquille and it -was
supposed that he fell in with Landis.
The McQuigg brothers, farmers.' saw
landis burying something in the woods.' ,
Landis was then engaged in the real i
estate business in Coquille. An inves- 1
tigation proved -that Landis had buried
the body of Eudaily, the latter having
been shot through the head. .Landis, be
fore suspicion , was directed to .him,
looked at the body of the dead man after
it had. been brought to Coqutlie, then
disappeared and had -never been Been
since. When the report of the McQuigg
brothers was made to the officers as to
Landis having been seen burying the
body, a general search was made for
Landis. .-i J
It seems now that the. man supposed
to be Landis has been arrested by the
police at Arkansas City and ; in his
pocket were found clippings referring

LETTERS ON LEAGUE

Covenant.
Ask
, Washington, i J. ) , March . 29
(WASHINGTON t BUKEAtJ f OF THE
JOURNAL) Resolutions and letters fa
voring tne League of Nations continue
to flow Into the office , of Senator Mc
Nary of Oregon. A number of letters,
also, are coming from other states. A
few letters four J or five have arrived
on the other side of the argument, on
writer appealing to him to "get in the
game" and fight the president. ' - f x
In-the recent mails are a number of
letters expressing . pleasure that SenaW
tor McNary was not .among the .39 Re4
publican senators who signed the "round
robin," , These come from men of dif
ferent political' beliefs. Some of theiru
from Republicans, express fear of defeat
if the party is led into opposition.
i A representative of a leading book con
cern,, saying .that he has just returned
from a 5000-mile trip, writes that ; "if
the Republican leaders oppose the main
idea of a League of "Nations they may
as well commit suicide. We cannot win
if we fight the league. He adds "that
he has communicated the same views to
Will H. Hays, chairman of the Repub
lican national committee. . -" ; . . f
Jhe few - who express doubts iappeaf
to be mainly concerned over maintaining
the Monroe doctrine. Some of the writers
express considerable feeling against
prominent senatorial critics, characteris
ing Sherman," Reed and La Follette as
"blatherskites" or "trouble-makers."
In addition to organizations and civic
bodies heretofore reported in . these dis
patches as having written to ask sup
port of the League of Nations, in some
instances such a league "as will safe
guard the peace we have won," and in
others specifically indorsing the plan
formulated at Paris, the following are

The Aristocrat of Lenses
The h igh-water ma rlc of optical genius has been
attained in the discovery and perfection of the
Punktal Lens. -
V Heretofore it was not possible to obtain a lens
of any appreciable power that would give accu
rate. 'vision except through the central portions.
Lenses ground according to the Punktal for- r
mula allow clear vision to the very margin of the
lens; and,' being' ground on a deeper curvature,
are more pleasing in appearance than torics.
