TEACE TREATY DEAD.
The League of Nations is dead as far as the United States
is concerned, killed by the republican majority of the senate by its
final rejection of the peace treaty after using it as a political foot
ball for partisan purposes for over a year.
Senator Lodge and the senate republicans under his leader
ship never had any intention of ratifying the treaty of Versailles.
Instead they framed a treaty of their twn, which has also failed.
The senate republicans never intended to ratify the League
of Nations covenant. As a substitute they offered a new covenant,
in which the United States was to reap all the benefits and share
none of the responsibilities a league with Uncle Sam as a privil
The final substitute for Article X of the League of Nations
covenant, adopted as a substitute for the original Lodge reserva
tion declared that the United States assumed neither legal or
moral obligation to protect other nations against aggression,
refused the use of the army, the navy, the economic boycott or
other forms of economic discrimination or American resources in
preserving the peace of the world.
This reservation effectually nullified American participation
in the league and served notice on Europe that the United States
senate would not be a party to preserving peace or in protecting
peoples from imperialistic schemes of aggrandizement.
Responsibility for the death of the treaty rests upon Senator
Lodge and his following. They never intended to agree upon any
reservations acceptable to the president. They planned to mutil
ate the treaty in order to compel the president to reject it' and
then throw the blame upon him.
War upon the treaty began over a year ago when 37 repub
lican senators signed a "round robin" declaring it to be "the sense
of the senate" that "the constitution of the League of Nations
in the form now proposed to the Peace Conference should not be
accepted by the United States." No amendments were suggested
and no suggestions offered. In a debate following, Lodge plain
ly intimated that nothing done in Paris ,would be acceptable and
much later declared that it was not the league, but President
Wilson he was after.
That was the crux of the whole matter. The peace treaty was
drafted by a democratic president and hence entirely unacceptable
to a republican senate and no amount of changes would have
made it acceptable.
The president is criticised for his uncompromising attitude,
but all he has done is to ask the ratification of a treaty of peace
that all the other belligerents and most neutral nations have rat
ified. He has pleaded for the acceptance of a covenant of the
League of 'Nations which all governments associated with the
United States and eleven of the thirteen nations invited to join,
have accepted. He has protested only against amendments and
reservations nullifying the spirit of the covenant of nations.
Europe is left to bleed slowly to death, bankrupted by war,
burdened by taxation, oppressed by armaments and cursed by
militarism, a prey to a reviving imperialism, while the one nation,
powerful enough to enforce peace and preserve democracy, washes
its hands of world affairs, because the senate learned nothing
from a war that cost ten million lives and 300 billion of treasure
and played politics with peace.
The reactionary senate has overplayed its hand. Deaf to
the voice of the people as well as blind to the appalling need of
humanity, it has forced peace and the League of Nations into
politics and presented a vital issue that will create a realignment
of the people and a confusion of parties and a discrediting of poli
ticians in the coming campaign.
Tin- people and not the senate have the final sav. What the
people want, they will eventually secure and if the American peo-!
pie favor a League of Nations, not even a reactionary senate can
long thwart their desires.

Jimmy Grows Too Cheeky
Mrs. Babbit always tried to teach
her children good manners. It was
no easy matter, either, with four girls
and three boys. But she was glad
.that she hadn't four boys and three
girls, because her boys always stuf

One day at dinner Mrs. Rabbit said:
"Jimmy! Won't fill your mouth so
full! .If you could see how you
look, with your cheeks sticking out,
you'd be more careful."
The first thing Mrs: Rabbit knew,
Jimmy burst into tears.
"I haven't eaten a thing!" he said.
"There's nothing in my mouth at all.
I'm not a bit hungry."
When Mrs. Rabbit looked at his
plate she knew at once that there
must be something the matter with
him, for she saw that Jimmy hadn't
touched his dinner. And usually he
was the first to ask for more.
"That boy is not well!" she told
her husband. "I wish you would go
and ask Aunt PoUy Woodchuek to
step ovef here." Aunt Polly, you
know, was a famous doctor.
Well, Mr. Rabbit hurried away as
soon as he had finished his meal.
And it wasn't long before old Aunt
Polly hobbled up to Mrs. Rabbit's
"Come right in!" Mrs. Rabbit said.
"It's Jimmy! I want you to look at
him. He wouldn't eat any dinner,
and his cheeks stick out very queerly."
Old Aunt Polly gave Jinunt a

"Did that hurt?" Aunt Pollv asked
"Yessum!" he answered.
"Hm I thought so!" she said.

"Yessum!" he said.
"I thought so!" Aunt Polly replied.
And turning to Mrs. Rabbit, she said,
"This boy has mumps."
"You don't say so!" Mrs. Rabbit
"I do. indeed!" Aunt Polly declared.
"Give him a cup of catnip tea and
put him to bed. And let him have a

BUYING PUBLIC OFFICE.
A fino of $10,000 and two-yews imprisonment is the punish
ment inflicted upon Truman II. Newberry for purchasing a seat
in me unnea btatea senate, by the expenditure of nearly a mil
lion dollars. The conviction is perhaps the most important move
for the purity of elections yet made and will go a long way to elim
inate corruption in politics.
A few years ago W. A. Clark was ousted from the senate for
bribery in connection with his election from Kontana, "but no
criminal prosecution followed. No member of congress has ever
neiore been punished tor political corruption other than being
deprived of his seat.
Clark merely purchased a legislature and many other legis
latures were similarly purchased. Then came the election of sen
ators by the people, which ended legislative senatorial scandals.
Newberry, however, successfully attempted- the purchase of
enough people to secure his own election by. means of a corrupt
political machine and the reckless expenditure of large sums of
money. It was a bigger job than buying a legislature, and so re
quired a more stupendous expenditure. .
Attempts are already under way to duplicate the Newberry
effort on n much more gigantic scale in the presidential election.
A great deal of money is being spent, even at this early date.
Headquarters have been maintained for months for rival can
didates, paid organizers are keDt in the field, nnhlinitv 1

"You can't help that, Helen, and I
feel almost sure that many misunder
standings between men and women
would be eliminated if each one did
the thing that seemed right, without
regard to what the other's reaction
would be, instead of always trying
to discount it."
"Yes, I know you're right, my dear.
I am so sure of it that I have already
written to Bobby and have not men

seemeu to have a feeling that she
must get away alone and "invite her

But when I saw that she would be
jmore uncomfortable with me than to

she left me on the afternoon train.
It was not until after she had left

I had not as yet received an answer

had received no word from any one;
even Alice had not replied to my last

thought I could be happy if I returned
to John under existing circumstances.
