In this issue of the Courier will
be found an epistle from one of our
dear subscribers. Read it; it Is a
message from ai genuine Simon-pure,
unadulterated, honest-to-goodness
"solid South" Wilson-worshiping
democrat, "wot keeps his unerring
finger on the throbbing pulse of Am
erican politics," and whose "Wllson-lan-Americanism
is unquestioned.
As per Mr. Lamond's request we
are publishing Senator Pomerene's
statement in regard to the proposed
league, since they reflect the senti
ments of the fire-eater from Wolf
Creek and "all clear-thinking people
In America" besides leaving noth
ing further to e said. As Mr. La
mond Is quite able to "pick all wheat
from the char he is badly needed in
Washington at the present time, as
the president and senate seem un
able to do so thus far, although they
re giving the matter their earnest
and sincere efforts we give them
credit for that.
Mr. Lamond is perfectly willing to
blindly follow the great leader at the
"White House, for he knows Wood
row "kept us out of war," that h
"subdued" the Mexicans so they no
longer respect us, and that he suc
ceeded In getting the voters to re
turn a "good old democratic con
gress. " But that's only three of the
great stunts that Mr. Lamond's idol
has "pulled off."
As to Mr. Wilson's appeal to the
Toters, Courier readers know that
the substance of that appeal was
published in these columns. In re
gard to the delinquent tax list, only
time will tell whether the people
made a mistake in deciding not to
give the delinquent rolls publicity.
As for the Courier, it had not -published
the delinquent tax list for
many years and did not expect to do
so in the future. In spite of this,'
the wild man from Wolf Creek says
the Courier editor Is "rotten, unfair,
a grafter, and has no Americanism.'
Really, to properly meet his argu
ments we would have to call In one
of the inmates from the state Insti-
tutlon at Salem then he would un
We have met Mr. Lamond; he is
not a bad looking man, but he should
take something for that Wilsonltls
most anything to check that rapid
ly-accumulating pan of tone-dust.
Then, and not until then, will he Te
able to understand that all people
who do not agree with him who do
not see national questions as he sees
them are not dishonest and unpa
triotic. The Courier is not adverse to a
league of nations In fact -we favor
one, If such an agreement between
the nations can be drawn up so the
United States will not sacrifice the
Monroe Doctrine, will not become
embroiled In endless disputes In Eu
rope; one In which the English will
not have eight or ten votes to our
one; one In which we can regulate
foreign Immigration, in short one
which will not place America on a
The present league as drawn up
may be all of that, "but statesmen
and people In general are very much
divided on the covenant, and the
United States senate would appear
to be the proper place to thresh It
out. Let it have a good airing be
fore we adopt It, not afterwards.
The war must 'be fought over
again unless the allied nations pro
vide some means for making Ger
many keop the peace, Senator Pom-
erene, Ohio, democratic member of
the foreign relations committee, de
clared In a three-hour speech in ad
vocacy of the league of nations.
"If the treaty is rejected what ts
to take its place?" asked Pomerene.
"To quit now Is as if, after the
flames of a' great conflagration had
been checked, the fire department
were to quit Its work while burning
embers were lying around, to be
again fanned Into fury by the first
winds that blow. That the treaty Is
not perfect, all concede. That it
would have been drafted differently
by the American nation there can
be no doubt; ibut many of those who
criticize 'have no remedy to pro
pose. In view of the unrest now
prevailing, and the immediate ne
cessity for the preservation of the
worlds peace at all hazards. I be
lieve it tetter to accept the' treaty
as it now stands and trust to the fu
ure to make such changes as ex
perience may suggest."
Pomerene charged that the repub
licans have made the league a party
"I owe my allegiance to the demo
cratic party," he said. "I believe In
its principles and hope for its suc
cess, but I would rather have my
party lose and the league of nations
win than to have my party win and
a league of nations lose."
Urging that the senate ratify the
treaty without delay, Pomerene said:
A war sick world demands the
early ratification of the treaty. That
demand must not be ignored."

Dear Sir: lAat week you printed
on your editorial page a speech made
by a senator from 'Connecticut -In
regard to the league of nations. From
the tone of your comment on this
speech I am' Justified In assuming
that thla speech reflected your own
sentiments. Therefore you selected
this particular specimen of bull dur-
hara to haud out to your renders as
the simon-pure double extract of
genuine he Americanism. All rUht
that's your privilege. I am enclos
ing a couplo of clippings of speeches
by two senators as they were given
In yesterdays news. They reflect my
aeutlments and Ideas and I firmly bo-1

You are quite a hand to hsnd nick !
and doctor up the news of (he day to
suit your partisan prejudices. I can
assure you that you don't get very
far with any thinking man or wom
an in that way.
Yon did not dare print President

Do you call that Americanism? I
don't. I call It by another name.

these speeches along side of the one
you printed last week. I dare vnn
to do It. Yours truly.
