THE VOICE OF LINCOLN
N June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln said to the republican
state convention of Illinois:
"There are those who whisper softly. that Senator
Douglas is the aptest instrument there is to overthrow the power
of the present political dynasty. How can he oppose the ad
vance of slavery? He does not care anything about it His
Avowed mission is impressing the public heart to care nothing
about it. Our cause must be entrusted to and conducted by its
own undoubted friends, those whose hands are free, whose
neans are in the work, who do care for the result
How well those soft whisoerines fit the Dresent time ! If we
paraphrase the words of Lincoln of that time, here is what we
"There are those who whisper softly that Senator Harding is
the aptest instrument to give us the League of Nations. How
can he give us the League of Nations? He does not care any
thing about it. His avowed mission is impressing the public
neart to care nothing about it Our cause must be entrusted to
and conducted by its own undoubted friends those whose
hands are free, whose hearts are in the work, who do care for
we result. ;
' The parallel is complete. Lincoln's cause was the abolition
of slavery. It was idealism much like the idealism of the League
of Nations. Of that cause he said : "Our cause must be en
trusted to and conducted by its own undoubted friends those
whose hands are free, whose hearts are in the work, who do care
for the result."
. "Those who whisper softly" that Harding "is the aptest in
strument" to give us the Leasrue of Nations are not like Lincoln.
Their advice is not Lincoln's advice. Their plan is not the plan
Harding hates the League of Nations. "I approve what Sen
ator Borah has said in his public addressess," said Harding in a
statement from his front porch.
And expressing his approval also of Senator Johnsons hatred"
of the league at Marion, October 3, he added :
"Borah will continue to make speeches for the republican
ticket, and I am sure I shall approve also what he says to the
voters in the future."
' "I have just received a full stenographic report of the address
of Senator Johnson made at Los Angeles September 25. It dissi-!
pates conclusively any notion that senator Johnson is out of har
mony with the platform and the candidate. . i
j "Senator Johnson repeatedly.quoted from the League of Na-j
lions address which I delivered on August 2, giving which I de
livered on August 2, giving his unqualified approval of it His
speech, with this generous indorsement of the party's platform
any my own interpretation of it brings no surprise to me."
And Senator Johnson, voicing the perfect harmony between
himself and Mr. Harding, said in a speech at Cleveland :
i "There is still nothing ambiguous or uncertain in our candi
date's declaration. He has courageously taken his stand. He
.has put the league behind him. He wants neither interpreta
tions nor reservations, but rejection."
With 92 per cent of the cost of the federal government go
ing to pay war bills, with $50 each as the amount every man,
woman and child in America must pay every year for war with
nothing but our d&bts, our cripples and our dead as all that we
have so far secured from our victory, is not the voice of Lincoln
still true? "Our cause must be entrusted to and conducted by
its own undoubted friends those whose hands are free, whose
hearts are in the work, who do care for the result." Oregon

If Senator Harding is right our entrance into the war was
a mistake, because Germany would have paid us for the ships
she sunk. If Harding is right the great principles enunciated by
Woodrow Wilson during the war and which principles won for
us the high regard of the world were all falsehoods. We played
false with our dead.
Are you willing to sanction the Harding viewpoint as to the
war? Do you stand for a separate peace such a peace as will
wean treachery to our allies and will allow Germany to dictate
the terms because our army is disbanded?
Do you favor scrapping the Treaty of Versailles and the
Leazue of Nations covenant drafted to end warfare and to re
deem the most solemn war pledge ever made by this republic?
Mr. Harding stands for that sort of a program ana says so.
HUGHES MORE VOTES
ARE YOU FOR REPUDIATION?
TT N a speech at w heeling, w est v lrginia aunng tnis cam-
Ipaign, Senator Harding said :
"I was not present when the senate passed the war
resolution, but I know what it conveyed. I know what it means,
and we did not go to war to make the world safe for democracy.
We did not go to war even for humanity's sake.' 0 .
Fmm the forpcoinir it is evident that Senator Harding did
not share the great spirit that was predominant throughout the
United States during the war. Tne people tnougni we were
furhtinz for humanity to free the world from a military autoc
racy. Our president omciauy announced mai m me wi
America asked nothing for itself it did not ask for all the world.
It was officially announced that we fought to end Var by setting
up a league that would prevent future wars by protecting great
and small nations alike against aggressors. Congress sanctioned
that view and so did the people of America. Those points con
t ituted the backbone of American morale during the war.

NEW YORK, Oct. 26. The total of
395 electoral votes, which Will H.
Hays, chairman of the republican na
tional committee, predicts will be cast
for Senator Harding, is Just tea votes
less than the 405 which republican
managers claimed, two weeks before
the 1116 election, for their candidate,
Charles E. Hughes. - When the re
turns were counted Hughes actually
received 254 electoral votes, and
Woodrow Wilson was elected.
Just before the 1116 election, Wil
liam R. Wilcox, chairman of the re
publican national committee, predict
ed a republican landslide.
'The people." he said, "have made
up their minds in favor of Mr. Hughes
and that is all there is to it."
Among the states which he claimed
with the utmost assurance, would give
large republican majorities were Cali
fornia (went democ ratio by S800);
Kansas (went democratic by 26,100),
land Ohio (went democratic by 81,500).
California, Mr. Wilcox asserted, would
go republican by 260,000, citing the
fact as evidence, that 207,713 republi
cans had voted 1n the state primary
and enly 77,830 democrats.
