Then there is another sign of where this German vole Is to go In charge

"God never made a more genuine, upright, noble character than the

In other letters he blamed the war on England, "said Alsace Lorraine was

Senator Harding is .opposed uiieiiiii
vocally to the league of nations, and

States Into It, Hiram Johnson of Cali
fornia told a large audience last night.
senator Johnson referred to the re
cent statement Issued In New York and
signed by Kilhu Root and othersa.
: "Men and newspapers who pretend
to be friend of Senator Harding, and
who assert that he Is to tak this coun
try Into the league of nations, do him
a distinct disservice and pay him a
sorry compliment," he declared.
8ay Stand Is I'ncompromlfclng
"I do not care," he said, referring
tc the statement given out by 31
prominent pro-league republicans,
headed by JCIIhu Root, "If 81 gentle
men In New York, or sio.ono gentle
men In Nrw York say the reverse of
what I contend. Here are the words
of Warren Harding and upon those
words he Is entitled to the support of
every red-blooded American:
Wants Outright lu-jiftloti
Senator Johnson said In part:
"For reasons of their own, certain
Interested Individuals and newspapers
may misrepresent and misinterpret
Henatnr Harding's words.- I resent
thass Imputations on the sincerity of
tha utterances of thts csndidnta and
ths manifest endeavor in some quar

'There is1, nothing , jimhiguoua or
uncertain in our candidate's declara

stand. H has put the Jeagus behind
him. Hs wants snelther Interpreta
tions nor reservations, but outright re
jection. 'The men and newspapers who pre
tend to be friends of Senator Harding
and who assert that he is to take this
country Into the league of nations
do him a distinct disservice and pay
him a sorry compliment. I speak of
course, solely from the public utter
ances of our candidate and these utter
ances make plain beyond cavil, that
when Senator Harding Is president he
will not take the f. 8. into the league.
"He characterises the league as a
military alliance which menaces pence
and threatens all freedom. He called
It the suprems blunder and asserted
that hS' would leavs 'America free, In
dependent and selg reliant, but offer
ing friendship to all the world.'
"X am unable to understand the In

and do hot appreciate the friendship

words are meaningless and that Sena

than ha says."

There are reasons for the German friendship for Senator Harding. He
voted in the senate on May 4. 1918. against placing heavy fines upon disloyal
ai d seditious acts and utterances during the war.
He voted on May U.. t?". for a separate peace wlili Germany, the peace
that they are apparently depending upon In Germany to release them from
tr harsh damage payments prescribed In the Versailles treaty, and mention
ed by the German-Americans as the "pernicious pact."
And Senator Harding made some statements In i.ie senate mat were
pleasing to the pro-Germans In America. On June 8. 1917, he doclured:
"I have believed the Unerty Bond campaign hys erical and unwen.ly."
Purtherfore. he applauded German patriotism and declared In effect, that

"I think It III becomes the I'nlted Slates of America to measure a man's
patriotic devotion In accordance with his determination that the huu.ves of
Hohensollern and Hnpaburg shall be destroyed."
There are many Americans who question If the coming election is to ne
another test betwaen Germany and America In America.
' MATUON. Oct. 23. (By Raymond
nirt,.r II. p. Staff Correspondent.)
Taking advantage . of a lull In his
speaking campaign. Senator Harding
tort.iv worked on addresses whicli will
be delivered next week In several Ohio
cities. For the time being there will
be little fireworks about the Marlon
front porch. A few visitors are ex
pected each' day. but no large delega
tions. Harding headquarters have ta
ken on an atmosphere of quiet confi
dence and has no feeling of doubt as
to the outcome of the campaign now
drawing to a close.
One reason for'lhls optlrtilst'n view
of the situation Is the apparent har
mony among party leaders which
Harding headquarters believes Jias
now been achieved by the nominee as
o ths league of nations. The latest
development which brought cheers
here was a stalement by Senator John
son that he favors a "world forum."
This Senator Harding Interprets as an
..j....nt of his own position
against the Wilson leaguo In favor of
some kind ot an
ttnns. The view of headquarters here
Is that all republican leaders, now ex
cept possibly Borah, have come around
. ih. Hsrdlng position on the league,
and the nominee believes he has
achieved the end for which he has
striven slnco the convention unity on
the chief Issue.
