CAUGHT IN HIS OWN TRAP .
IN the story of Mr. HardinffV'spokesrnan from France" we
have one of the big flashes of the campaign and an inci
. dent that throws a light on the character of Warren Gali
meil Harding and his campaign methods.
The official stenographic notes from the Harding speech at
Terre Haute, Ind., on Saturday, quoted Mr. Harding as follows:
"Why, my countrymen, France has sent her spokesman to me informally
asking America In its new realization of the situation to lead the way for an
association of nations."
. Those are specific words and they admit of but one mean
ing. Mr. Harding conveyed the impression and he doubtless
meant to convey the impression that the French government had
sent a representative to talk matters over informally with him.
Questioned by President Wilson as to his statement at Terre
llause, Mr. Harding "crawfished" as follows: .
;"I am sure that my words could not be construed to say that the French
government has sent anybody to me. The thought I was trying to convey
was that there had come to me those who spoke a sentiment which they rep
resented to be very manifest among the French, people."
In the language of Theodore Roosevelt there is but one word
that fittingly portrays Mr. Harding's behavior and it is "short
And ugly. The senatorial candidate has been squarely caught
in his own trap. Making a demagogic appeal for votes he libel
ed the government of France and has publicly admitted the fact.
The Prench government corroborated the statement that it has
had no dealings with him. '
In his explanation Mr. Harding does not even claim he was
Visited by any sort of a Frenchman. His statement on that point
is vague. From all he says it may be he got his information from
William Randolph Hearst, from Will Hays, H'.ram Johnson or
some 6ther Frenchman of that type.
' r Mr. Harding has made a pitiful spectacle of himself but this
incident is directly m line with the whole campaign against the
League of Nations, The fight against the league from start to
finish has been based on misrepresentation and falseMood. It is
not surprising that pro league republicans are flocking to sup-
ort of Governor Cox. Self respect leaves no other course open

THE FIRE DEPARTMENT .
R WAH.ES' idea that the League of Nations is a fire de
partment is good.' In the recent big fire the United
States lost 81,000 men (in battle) and the financial
cost was 28 billions. Governor Cox favors averting such disas
ters in the future by uniting with a world fire department. Mr.
Harding opposes the plan and favors relying on the justice of
the peace in case another fire should get started. That's the
esse in a nutshell. If the Harding logic is sound, Pendleton
. property ownere are mistaken in wanting a better fire truck,
we need is a fireman's helmet for Joe Parkes.
1 Louis Seibold, one of the country's foremost journalists, says
a prominent Harding official at Peoria, 111., told him that in
Illinois alone $360,000 was being expended on keeping the col
ored vote solid for Harding and Coolidge. The same writer re
ports that in Tennessee and Kentucky Harding workers are
nromisins natronage and social recognition at the white house
in their campaign for colored votes. . Is that the way to conduct
n "America First" campaign for the presidency?
i Milt Miller is not a Drof essional elocutionist but he is a sin-?
teie minded, intelligent speaker who will talk, fairly and insult
no one. Itrwill be worth while to hear Him tonight at the Ar
cade. . .
The suggestion for a road from Helix to Wallula if any sort
of a Wallula highway is needed is sound. Such a road would be
of some benefit to Umatilla county and to Eastern Oregon and
the cost would be light compared with the proposal for a high
way from Umatilla to Wallula. ; . '
V' The Portland chief of police say that short skirts, etc., make
women vampish. But Cleopatra wore a long skirt and she was
:.ckoned as considerable of a vamp in her day.
If Major Whittlesley talks like he fought he will make them
tt ke notice. '
Woman's rosy complexion cost $750,000,000 during the past
year, it is asserted ; no figures are available on what it costs men
to shave but they have spent over a billion on cigarettes and ci
t irs which of course are necessities.
