Republican condemnation of the
Wilson regime inspires a derisive
Krin when one reflects that had it
tmn republican administration tho
anvil chorus would change into
paean of praise. And tho g. o. p.
would haw had something to brair
about, at that. It could have said
that during tho Wilson administra
tion the farmer received the greatest
returns from his toil; the American
laborer had his fullest dinner jiail
and received his greatest pay; the
American business man made hi
largest profits; the American banker
and American stockholder in other
corporations received their largest
dividends; the greatest merchant ma
rine ever owned by America was
built; the greatest banking ystem
ever known was created; wealth wa
made to bear its just share of taxa
tion by the passage of income tax
laws; America became the greatest
financial center of the world; the
American navy reached it highest
efficiency; four and a-half million
Americans, untrained in time of
peace, were transformed into soldiers
and sailors of such disciplined valor
that kaiserism trembled before their
assault; America achieved for her
self, and aided in achieving for the
Allies, the greatest victory of all the
ages; America was, changed from the
greatest debtor nation to the great
est creditor nation in the world, and
America took her place as the world'
leading power. Some record! And
were it a republican administration
record, would not the democrats be
hooted into silence should they dare
to raise the voice of blame against
it? Should the republicans win they
will have had a fast paco ct or
them, and are due to find perform
ance a bit more difficult than criticism.

Republican voters may be inter
ested in this statement ofWilliam
Howard Taft, made no longer ago
than August 2. 1920. in the New
York Tribune: "I consider the moral
effect of Aicle X on predatory na
tions would restrain them from war
as the declaration of tho Monroe Doc
trine has done, and that the require
ment of the unanimous consent by
the representative of the great
powers in council, before League ac
tion, would safeguard the United
States trvm any perversion of the
high purpose of the League. More
over, 1 believe that the issue of the
League (of Nations) transcends in
its importance any domestic issues
and would justify and require one
who believes so to ignore party ties
and secure this great boon for the
world and this country."
