to save, money to the taxpayers of Oregon and at" the same
time avoid tne creation of a super-government. The remain

Over the initials f - United
States Senator Authur Capper of
Kansas the following tribute to
Senator Charles L. McNary or
Oregon, appears In' Capper's
Weekly, published in Washington,
D. C: -
; One. of the soundest 'speeches
made during the .debate, on ihe
Borah amendment to the" naval
bill authorizing an international
economic coonference was made
by Senator Charles L. McNaryf of
Oregon, lr. McXary is a Senator
who does not, consume very much
time in the senate debates, ! but at
such times as ho has something
worth while to contribute to the
discussion. It would facilitate ihe
business of the senate if more sen
ators were like 'him j in this re
spect. I regard Senator, McNary
as one of the ; strongest and most
useful men in the senate. :
Yk Discussing : the proposed eco
nomic conference " authorised by
the Borah amendment, which was
withdrawn after assurance had
been given by! Republican senate
leaders that the president already
bad initiated a movement for such
a conference, Mr. McNary. voiced
the views of a number of senators
who. have felt ever .since the end
ing of the war that this -country
should not remain aloof .from
European affairs merely' because
it intends to adhere to its tradi
tional policy of noninterference la
European ' politics. Mr. McNary
made this point clear in. the fol
lowing language:. ' j.,-.-"In
my humble opinion, .the
amendment offered by "the able
senator from' Idaho (Mr. Borah)
is limited to operate only, in the
field ot international economics
and can: not be construed to im
ply any obligation calculated 'to
involve any aggressive .or- defen
IS. IffiE
" ; The Hare 'joint, resolution call
ing ff or ,v a constitutional conven
tion proposes that the question of
calling .the "convention 'be sub
mitted? fOfthe people at ,the next
genera election whlch'.will he' In
Noveinber , 1924 ; ! r . ; '.Is
V Representation Provided For
4, Each" c6untyr would "berepre
sentod in the constitutional ; con
vention in the same manner that
it is now represented in the bouse
of representatives. Delegates to
tbe convention ' would be . elected
at the regular election of, November,-.
1&26 and lb convention
would, be held, early Inli 1927.
Every moye would . be made Jn
regular, elections . and the people
would . not, be ,at the expense , of
voting . on the proposals at eostly
special, .elections. ;. The . idea In
this mainly would be that of giv
ing the people ample v time to con
sider and discuss all phases of the
proposal. - ' . ' . -.
Constitution. Faulty
The reasons for a proposed new
constitution of the state are set
forth in the; preamble to the res
olution which avers that a state
constitution ' should be a declara
tion of ' principles and contain the
fundamental laws granting and
limiting powers and authority of
departments and "officers of gov
ernment and fixing the rights of
the - people. . , "
U is pointed out that the fram-
ers of the original constitution of
Oregon at the time; of. its adop
tion' could noff anticipate and pro

upon the conference Is the duty of
considering the economic prob
lems now confronting the world,
followed by the; expression of a
hope that some . undertaking or
arrangement may be reached pro
viding Tor the restoration of trade
ana the establishment of, the fi
nances of the world on a solid
The, value of such a conference
to the farmer was emphasized by
Senator McNary, j who 1 declared
that the "cruer and unfortunate
plight of the farmer is due to the
fact that he Is" smofiering In a
surplus of !i agricoltvral products.
A strong, brisk ; foreign market,
such as he Is entitled to enjoy,"
the senator continued "would lift
the farmer- from Impending ruin
to a position where he could meet
his obligations and , leave- him a
fair profit for his laborious work
and his investment.!1. '
, Senator. McNary. voiced another
view shared by senators who had
.supported the Lodge reservations
to the treaty of Versailles in the
hope that it would result in the
ratification of the treaty and not
in- its defeat by lis supposed Dem
ocratic' friends ",',.',
: Holding this view .Senator Mc
Nary said he could not persuade
himself-to oppose i any conference
looking to a better understanding
among the nations and to a res
toration of economic stability
among them. In this iriew, It may
be said a large majority, of his
colleagues on- the Bepubllcan side
of the Senate share, and whatever
steps President Harding and Sec

end will meet 'with their hearty
