Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - October 16, 1920, Woodland, California ISSUED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY, D, CALIFORNIA, SATURDAY EVENING, OCTOBER ie, 1920 DAILY ESTABLISHED 1877. Huston Declares 1920 Campaign One ot Lies In Hope to Cloud Issue Huston Pays Respects To SamShortridge Attorney Arthur >C. Huston of this city, Democratic candidate for presidential elector, last night his audience at the Demo- cratic Club headquarters in the Labor Temple in Sacramento with many telling points during the course of a ninety minute addMSW. The speaker said it was evident that a studied attempt way to embroil all elements of voters in a seething caldron ot hatred against the Democratic The campaign of mterepreseat- ation he declared, was unparalleled and it is the bounden duty of ev- ery citizen to read the League of Nations covenant, which is not to long as the Constitution, and reach his owrt CONSTITUTION. When the Constitution was adopted criticism simi'ar to that of today was made. Nine ot the thirteen stales fin- ally ratified. The Constitution is the Constitution of the United States of America.

Referring to Ireland, the speaker declared that Governor Cox had prom- ised when elected that he would call attention to conditions existing in Ireland under Article XI of the coven- ant, specifically provides for friendly -consultations between the nations. A continuance of such a world menace as at present obtains in the British Isles endangers the re- lations between the United States and Great Britain, he declared. The crime of the campaign is the manner in which the citizens are pre- vented from getting the news, said Huston. No coast papers publish the fact that George Viereck, whos- "Fatherland" was suppressed during the war, now is advocating that the six million voters of German descent work to defeat Cox.
