Nothing worse could happen to the United States at this
time than that thp peace treaty should be made a merely parti
san matter. Any attempt to make it such, by any political or
ganization or any individual, deserves condemnation.
Democrats have no right to appropriate this treaty as their
own, and insist on uanimous support of it as a Democratic meas
lire. Republicans have no right to demand unanimous opposition
to it as a test of Republicanism.
Regardless of the personalities involved on either siae, it
cannot be argued by any intelligent man that any political party,
as such, ha any material and inevitable attitude toward the treaty.
This big, comprehensive pact is something brand new. Its rela
tion to the basic principles of the two parties lias not yet been
worked out. Neither party has yet had a chance to study the
subject and commit itself authoritatively. The general public
out of which parties are made has not yet had a chance to form
aid register an opinion. '
t If Jhere. is, anything about the League of Nations that is es
sentially Democratic or essentially Republican, what is it? Re
publican leaders were conspicuous in advocating it before the
vvar ,and a Democratic leader has now been active in construct
ing it. It is no doubt possible to characterize some parts of it as
Iiarmonizing or clashing with the established views of one or
tiie other; but certainly it neither agrees wholly with the prin
ciples and traditions of one party nor disagrees wholly with those
tf the other party.
The liame can be said of the general body of the treaty, with
it: manifold provisions that affect the fate of Germany and touch
li e life of the whole world at a thousand points. Are all the Ger
nnn indemnity arrangements, the new boundaries, the disarma
ment plans, and all the rest Republican or Democratic? The ques
tion is absurd.
It goes as a matter of course that this treaty should be con
f iiiercd carefully and critically. The point is that criticism should
always be from the standpoint of a broad and enlightened Amer
icanism, never from the restricted standpoint of a single party.
Private citizens should consider it as Americans, not partisans.
Senators should consider it as statemen representing the country,
ami not as men who have prejudged the issue or submitted to the
d ctales of a secret council.
It is natural and right that each party should divide on the
issue. There will be honesty in such decision. Whether the treaty
is accepted or rejected, let the decision cut across party lines as
We have beaten the Prussians, freed the seas, traversed the
hidden ways of air. Can we not do the rest?
And out of the past comes a still, small voice saying, force
ful, calm with authority. "eBtter is he that ruleth his spirit,
than he that taketh a city!"
It is becoming more evident every day that the defeat of
J. Bourne, Jr., for United States senator several years ago was a
national calamity. Having nothing else to do for a livelihood,
ihe former senator has since been the head of the Republican
bureau of misinformation and misrepresentation at Washington,
D. C, and the country at large has been forced to read Washing
ton dispatches (see Oregonian and other party papers) marked
"special" which are not even "founded on fact" like some of the
popular fiction. These dispatches born in Jonathan's imagiative
im'nd only serve to muddle the average reader's point of view at a
time when it is pretty hard for the most intelligent citizen to
keep his understanding on straight. Also the former senator
supplies many newspapers with canned editorials which are, if
possible, worse in general character than hia news stories. Al
ways it is the aim of this publicity bureau to embarrass the ad
ministration but frequently Jonathan uses poor judgment ana
puts his own party leaders and party newspaper organs "in a
hole," matters which little concern -or ruffle the former Oregon
mining promoter, who has changed his politics so often, ranging
from populist to gold-standard Republican, that the little matter
of changing his views to conform to the shifting weather-vane of
public opinion inconveniences him little and worries him not at
all. .We only wonder do the CI. Ci P fonrW th
services are worth what they cost?
Why should the Oregonian take occasion to discuss the avail
ability of military men as presidential candidates in connection
with Dr. Leonard Wood's boom. The doctor5s military record
exists mainly in the historical fiction written by the late Colonel
It seems to take the Germans some time to realize that there
ih considerable difference between a just peace, and just peace.
Those cross-Atlantic flyers who reached the Azores seem to
like the climate and surroundings there.
