peating a statement from the vener
able Charles W. Hliot, president em-
,.rifii nt ii.ip,.uni .k.. u
ent when the war resolution was passu
eil by congress.
The following is from the New
. York World editorial under the title
"Degrading of a Nation":
"The Republican party ha turned
its buck on its own principles of I860
and 1918." thus writes the venerable
Charles W. Kliot in the current Issue
of the Atluntic Monthly.
Dr. Kliot adds by way of further
comment: "This deplorable change
of front is a deep mortification and
distress to all patriotic Americans,
republican or democratic, and .artle.
ularly those who remember the poli
tical ideals vhich the republican party
was founded to contend for and which
led to glorious victories."
I Handing Was Absent.
t As If to emphasize Dr. Kllot's caus
tic criticism. Senator Harding said in
his speech at 'heeling Tuesday
"I WAS NOT PRESENT WHEN
THE SENATE PASSED THE WAR
RESOLUTION, HUT I KNOW WHAT
IT CONVEYED, I KNOW WHAT IT
MEANS, AND WE DID NOT GO TO
WAR TO .MAKE THE WOULD
SAFBVoit DEMOCRACY. WE TH!
NOT GO TO WAR EVEN FOR HU
Tievelyan remarked of George HI.
that "he could never forgive a poll
tician for taking the right course un-
less 11 waa irom a wrong motive.'
Senator Harding himself had no part
in voting the -declaration of war
against Germany, but he is willling to
Justify it provided It is agreed that
the motives of the American people
were sordid and materialistic. On
the basis ie might even forgive Pres
ident Wilson for his successful con
duct of the war.
Fr the rest. Senator Harding re-
to c-"ede that our dead died
for any noble and inspiring principle.
He refuses to admit that the Amer-1-ain
people had any exaltation of
splr:l; that they regarded the war as
an irrepressible conflict between free
dom and autocracy, between the doc
trine of right and the doctrine of
might. To the republican candidate
it was just a row over some ships and
submarines and a disputed interpre
tation of the trading status of neu
trul3. A Needless War?
If Senator Harding is right in his
estimate of the'motives of the Amer-j
ican people, the war was a needless
war. Every life tK was t-t w-r I

and if nothing muttered except the
mulerlalist-c aspects of the case, Ger
many hud more to offer than the al
liis. The Kaiser could never understand
the attitude of the American people
toward the war. From his point lof
view they were foolishly blind to
their own interests. The thing for
them to do was to p'ck a quarrel
with Great Britain over the blockade
.estiicllons, go to war on the side ot
the central powei-s and take Canada
and all the British possesions in the
Western Hemisphere us their share
of the spoils. That is what any coun
try would have done which wus con
cerned only with permanent ma
terial advantages and not with mor

senator Hariling is also mistaken.
