SPIRITS VVL L TREAD
OARD AT THE GRAND
TORN between a Recent' respect for the opinions of its
readers and an indecent political partisanship, the
Portland Oregonian continues to make a ludicrous spec
tacle of itself in its treatment of the peace treaty and
league of nations.
Endorsing the president and the league before the
senate reactionaries attempted to make opposition a party
matter, the Oregonian has alternately blown hot and cold,
its news columns full of propaganda assailing the league
and its editorials trying to support both the league and the
Now that partisanship and prejudice similar to its
own have killed the treaty for this ssesion and endanger
ed it for the next, the Oregonian has no word of condem
nation for Lodge, who succeeded in carrying out his an
nounced intention of blocking the treaty, but places all the
blame upon the president because of his objection to the
nullification of the treaty.
The president's letter, which the Oregonian holds de
feated compromise, read as follows: .
1 should hesitate to offer counsel in any detail, but I assume that the
Senators only desire my judgment upon the all-important question of the
final vole on the resolution containin g the many reservations of Senator
I,odge. On that I cannot hesitate, for in my opinion the resolution in that
form does not provide for ratification but rather for the nullification of the
treaty. I sincerely hope that the frle nrln and supporters' of the treaty will
vote against the l.ortge resolution of ratification.
I understand that the door will then probably be open for a genuine
resolution of ratification.
But Senator Lodge refused compromise and in re
venge for the senate's refusal to pass his own reserva
tions, Succeeded by the votes of those "mild reservation
ists" who had voted down his own nullifications, in reject
ing, compromise and in killing the treaty.
Lodge's attitude was reflected in his statement boast
ing of the result, issued after adjournment:
"The president may withdraw the treaty when the senate reconvenes,
and, of course, he can tlfen resiilmii t it in the next session. But the treaty
is dead In the senute, and they killed it, as I told them they would, if thoy
oted against it."
Only by a compromise can the treaty be passed. Par
tisanship is too strong to either pass the original treaty
or the Lodge nullification. If there isn't statesmanship
enough in the senate to effect a compromise, a humiliated
nation must confess its failure.
If the Oregonian was sincere in its support of the
league, it would not favor the Lodge nullificationbut
who expects a party organ to be sincere? That is one rea
son why the party organ is becoming a thing of the past.
People are tired of guff, weary of the sounding brass and
tinkling cymbals of political partisanship,
SILVER THE PRECIOUS METAL.
117ILLIAM J. BRYAN evidently finds vindication and
" cause for thanksgiving in the high price of silver.
He has wired the New York papers as follows.
Press- despatches report bulllo n value of gold dollar 5 cents less than
bullion value of silver dollar. Are the Now York financiers living up' to
their claims of honesty that they made so vociferously in 189(1? Or are
tliey paying their debts in a cheap gold dollar?
Mr. Bryan has waited for a long time to see silver re
stored to its former, value which he advocated accom
plishing by arbitrary legislative enactment, but the law
of supply and demand has forced up the price of silver
by relatively lowering the price of gold.
Most of the gold of the world came to the ' United
States during the war, forcing the use of silver in" other
nations and the ensuing demand exceeded he supply.
There is even talk in Europe of restiring the bimetallic
stand;) yd though now the silver miners would oppose it.
With the cheap gold dollar only buying half a dol
lars worth of groceries or other supplies, it is no surprise
to find it buying only fifty cents worth of silver.

but said nothing, as she began to pack
a trunk. I wondered for a moment If
1 had not been hRsty in not Insisting
upon speaking with John under the
circumstances. I decided, however,
that I could not have told my sad
news to any one but John himself, and
I know that only" battle, . murder or
fire would drag John to the telephone
when he was in an "important con
ference." , ,' l
"I don't think I had better take a

to myself enough to know whut she
was doing. "Just pack a big bag nnd
my dressing rase. Please call a taxi
for a uuarter to six."
As I hastily bat hod by swollen face,
I realised for the first time that pos

my Journey. I hud not been able to
find courage enough since our mar
riage to ask John for money, and he
had said nothing about an allowance,
which I was u, e he meant to give me.
Henrlette saw me looking in my

"Thank you so much, Ileuriette, 1

"I cannot tell you how fine I think it
is for you to offer it to me. I shall
always be grateful."
"Oh", Mrs. Gordon, I am sure you
would do It for me under the same
circumstances, and Just because you
are rich and I am a working woman,

"No, Henriettte, and neither will it

John and his mother were perfectly
