THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OREGON. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1919.
Tomorrow (Saturday) "we begin celebrating our
Anniversary, by putting into effect a list of prices;
that will undoubtedly be a welcome surprise to you.
When you think of the Midget, here are a few things
to bear in mind. We were first to inaugurate the
cash and carry system in Salem, whereby you do
not have to pay for an expensive delivery, and some
one else's bad account. . ; . ;;..;. . -
We succeeded in bringing about a reduction in
the price of meat which still prevails. -i !
We have been fought openly and by all manner
of subterfuges, but thanks to your loyal support we !
survived it all.
It is not necessary to say anything further as
the following prices speak for themselves.

d'Alene address follow? i
"It was" with the most earnest de
sire to ?ct in touch with you and the
rest of my fellow countrymen that I
undertook this trip, for, my fellow
countrymen, we are facing a decision
now in which . we cannot afford to
make a mistake. We must not let our
selves be deceived as to the gravity of
that decision, or as to the implications
or that decision. It will mean a great
deal now, but it will mean indefinite
ly more in .the future; and America
has to do at this moment nothing less
than prove to tho world whether Bho
has meant what she said in the past.
I must confess that I have been
amazed that there are some men in re
sponsible positions who are opposed
to the ratification of the treaty of
peace altogether. ' . ;
"The settlement of thir treaty can
not be maintained without the concert
ed action of all the great governments
of the world. At this moment the only
people who are dealing with the bolshe
vist government in Russia aro the Uer
mons. They are fraternizing with the
few who exercise control in that dis
tracted country. They are making all
their plans, that the financing of Rus
sia and the commerce of- Russia and
the development of Russia shall be as
soon as possible in the hands of Ger
mans and just so soon as she can swing,
that great power, that is also her road
ito tho east and to the domination of
the world. If you do not guarantoo the
titles that you are setting up in these
treaties, you leave the whole ground
fallow in which again to sow the drag
on 's teeth with the harvest of ormed
"That, my fellow citizens, is what
article X, that you hear so much talk
ed about, in the covenant of the lea
gue of nations, does. It guarantees the
land titles of the world and if1 you do
not guarantee the land titles of the
world, there cannot be tho ordered so
ciety in which men can live. Am
erica is absolutely, necessary "to ' the
peaco of the world. Germany realizes
that, and 1 want to tell you now and
here 1 wish I could proclaim it in
tones so loud that they would reach
the world Germany wants us to stay
odt of this treaty. Not under any de
ception. Not under the deception that
we will-turn in sympathy towards her.
Not under the delusion that we would
seek in any direct or conscious way to
serve Germany; but with the knowl
edge that the guarantees will not be
sufficient without America, and that
inasmuch as Germany is out of the ar
rangement, it will be very useful to
Germany to have America out of the
arrangement. iBecause, Germany knows
that if America is out of the arrange
ment, America will lose the confidence
and cooperation of all tW other na
tions of the world and, fearing Ameri
ca Ts strength, she wants to see America
alienated from the peoples from whom
she has been alienated. It is a perfectly
reasonable program. She wants to see
Ameriea isolated. She is isolated, She
wants to see one great nation left out
of this combination which she neve!
would again dare face. Evidences are
not lacking, nay, evidences are abound
ing that pro-German propaganda has
started up in this country, coincident
ally with tho opposition to the adoption
of this treaty. I want those who have
any kind of sympathy with the pur
poses with which we went into the ar
now to reflect upon" this proposition:
Are we going to prove the enemy of
the rest of the world, just when we
have proved tltfir savior? The thing is
intolerable. The thing is impossible.
America has never been unfaithful and
she never will be unfaithful.
"Do not mistake the signs of the
times, my fellow countrymen, and do
not think that America is immune. The
-foison that hag spread all through that
pitiful nation of Russia is spreading ait
through Europe. There is not a states

lovch justice end who hopes for pro

qualified adoption of this treaty. I
send that challenge put to the conscience
of every man in America, that il he
knows anything of the conditions of the
world, 'if he knows anything of the
present state of society throughout the
world and really loves justice an(i pur
poses with which we went into the war
treaty with Germany. I do not wt-nt to

for if .this treaty should be refused, if
it should be iunairod, then amidst ths

Clo not wunt to see that sort ot eonvw

Wood and of chaos to convert men to the
only practical methods of justice,
My Icllow citizens, there are a great
many things needinglto be reformed in
America. We aro not exempt from those,
in subtle influences which lead to uli,
sorts of incidental injustice. W our
selves are in -danger at this prescut nuc
mont of minorities trying to coutiol oui
affuirs and whenever a minority tries to
control tne attans ot the country it is
fighting agaiut the interest of the
country just us much as if it were trying
iu upset tue government. : If you think
that you can afford to livo in a chuotic
world, then speak words of eiicouri.ee"
ment to the men who are opposing this
treaty, out it you want to havu vour

tne rortunes of tho world must bo h.

iou will say, 'well, why not go in

know what that means. If tho KP.int
of the United States passes a resolu

on condition that so and so and so is
umlerBtood, that will hiive to be re-i.h
mitted to every signatory of the treaty;

consent; whereas, it is perfectly feai-iM .
my fellow countrymen, if we put inter
pretations upon that fronts t1,!1, u.

other governments of the world that w,
do understand the treaty in that sense. It
is perfectly feasible to do, and perfectly
honorable to do that, because ,mark you,
