has not dared to ussert that he Is
not honest. ' The heinous offense
of which ho Is chained Is that ho
appointed or retained Harry Sin

"The whole thins to me seems
tu be that character which mlKht
be described in tho language of
tho street as 'piffle.' "
In riling to tho assaults on

nation. Ho added that the fact
about McAdoo's retention by Kd
ward L. Dohony us counsel wer
now well known,

any eulogy of that Kentlemnn."
Walsh said, referring to McAdoo,
but he reviewed briefly his work
as secretary of tho treasury dur
ing the World war and declared,
"There never even had been a
suggestion that McAdoo had not
performed lilts mighty tasks with
fidelity." ,
Asserting that in Ilobinson's
last address ho himself had heen

said he had been instrumental In
some degree, at leust, in recover

WASHINGTON, April 6. M'l
i Contention of Herbert Hoover's
j friends that the commerce secre-
fry and presidential candidate
! '"is been a consistent friend ot tho
farmer were assailed today In a
statement by (leurgu N. Teek,
placed in the senate record today
by Senator Nor beck, republican,
Mouth Dakota.
Peek, who Is chairman of the
executive committee of 22 of tho
North Central Htatos Agricultural
conference, had prepared h I s
memorandum for tho late Senator
Willis of Ohio, who also was a
presidential candidate ufter pam
phlets reviewing lloover'a furm
record had been circulated In thu
Huekeye state.
The J'eek memorandum charged
! that "most of the statements made
l,v Hoover nnd his friends. In
behalf, were at vuriance with
the facts.'
"The belief that tho farm lead
ers with whom I have been assuel-
"led," reek said, "Is that he Is
i ""' seekliiB to Insinuate himself
Into favor with the rank and fllo
'be farmers in order to serve
his own political Interests first and
that If successful hp will then
rvo tue Interests of exporters,
dea'ers and manufacturers of the
farmers' products, then, as welt as
his limited vision wilt permit, the
business Interests uf the nation
ami that finally the farmer may
have the crumbs which fall from
