President Wilson as attempting thru the peace treaty to surrender Amer- ican sovereignty to an "internation- al tribunal in which we are a minor- ity Senator James A. Reed, Democrat, of opening the campaign here Sunday against the league of nations declared that Japan was a "robber" and that the United States was assisting in the thievery. Reed bitterly assailed the speech made by President Wilson in his na- tion-wide tour in behalf of the peace treaty and frequently quoted from the president's addresses. He laid especial stress en what he called the inequality of the American vote in the league of nations, pointing out that while the British empire gets six votes, the United States gets but one, placing her bn the same footing of Siam, Haiti and other minor na- tions. Racial equality also played an Im- portant part in Reed's speech for he charged that the Orientals received 17 votes in the league, leaving but 15 for the white race. He also assert- ed that. President Wilson had promis- ed racial equality to the Japanese thru Baron Soto. Reed asserted that article X was favored by Britain because the Unit- ed States and other members of the league would be bound to keep Ire- land and other of her colonies under subjugation, while France favored it because of her tremendous Thus, Reed said, "we are to become guardians of the peace thru-out the j world and thousands more must fight 1 and die, not to protect America, but to keep our pledge made in this cove- nant, by which are policies in inter- national affairs controlled." "The adoption of the league" he said will mean that'the flag will be torn and stained and dragged in the dust. It will mean that the internat- ional affairs of America, which no one but Americans should administer will be turned over to a tribunal in .which he will have one vote against 31 votes by foreigners." He also asserted that the league would not bring disarmament. He Death early Sunday moniing successfully terminated an effort by Aaron M. Smith, near Roscoc, to end his own life by means of a razor, with which he severed the large blood" vessels in his neck. The aged man was found by his wife a few minutes after the act in the stable near his home on Coshocton Route 7. He died a moment later without speaking. For several weeks Mr. Smith who j ing health.
