Senator Borah Explains Strug
gle Republican Govern
ment Faces
Article Is Read From German ;
'Paper Denouncing Men
roe Doctrine
Speaking in the senate today on the j
American war aims. Senator itorah j
of Idaho. Republican member of I
the foreign relations -committee, em- i
pbasized the point that the United j
States la not engagea merely in a
war between "nations but that the
conflict has at stake the principles
of a republican form of government.
"The policies of Frederick the
Great and the policies of Washington
are contending for supremacy on the
battle fronts of Knroe today," he;
said. "To fall to settle it finally
and conclusively now is to fall to
settle the sublimest duty that has
fallen on our country. If we fail
the. world will ibecome a military
camp.' s
Senator Horah said he h;ul been
led to make the observations because
of a prevailing belief'that the war i
being fought along European and
Jerritorial l'nes.
"There Is much reason for that,'
he continued, "beeaupe in the begin
ning these questions were upper
most not only in the minds of the
people of Europe, but of this coun
try. This view was greatly accentu
ated In the minds of the people
throughout the civilized. world when
the secret treaties were rade known
to the public by the Ifc.hevists ' f
"It was discovered that under
neath the conflict there were going
on the same secret understandings
and combination with reference to
the territories of Europe. There is
no necesity now for; discussing that
oroposltion. but I want to say that
notwithstanding the ' personal ambi
tion of the authorities representing
the rcpective countries of Kurope in
;hiFe treaties, we must not pow be
misled Into the 4 supposition that
.bose treaties or ' thie- aiubitions and
nurpoes which thev disclosed are in
inv -sense controlling factors and
principles of th?a war.
We all believe 'tin the ultimate
triumph of Iree institutions, but the
broken sobs of .nations, stnkgeling
to be independent and free, thetory
of Rnsia, just now being writ In in
contention and blood, admonish us
that th republican road to security
ind sts ility is bVet by a thousand
trials and encompassed by all kinds
of perils."
Senator Itorah read from an arti
cle published In a newspaper In
uermany recently In which It was set
forth that the central powers would
no longer agree to abide by the Mon
roe doctrine. The United States
cannot stop In the War now, he
aided, any more than Washington
could have stopped at Valley Forge.

The "Submarine" is mounted on a three-wheel

able self-and-automatic adjustment, which permits
the cleaner to run easily from the bare floor to the
