I'. CONVENTION AN AUCTION SAII, ON WAK San Francisco, June championed as Ihe "Monroe Doctrine of tho World" by Homer Cimimings. temporary chairman ef Ihe Demo- cratic national convention, in his kcy- nulc- address here loday. Of (he peace treaty's defeal in the senate, lie said: "No blacker crime against civilization lias ever soiled the pages of our history." lie characlcrized tho Republican plalform as "reactionary and provin- cial." "Filled with premeditated shin- dors and vague promises, it will he searched in vain for one constructive suggestion for the reformation of the conditions which it criticizes and de- he continued. "A Sword for Mexico" "The oppressed of (he earth wil Hook lo il, in vain. U con- tains no message of hope for Ireland; no word of mercy for Armenia; and it conceals a sword for .Mexico. It is the work of men concerned more with material than wit lilmman ighls. It contains no thought, no pur- pose which can give impulse or thrill to those who love liberty and hope lo make the world a safer and happier place for the average "man." He declared that the time rec- ord of lho democratic, party from Mar. I9K! lo lho outbreak of the world war has to its credit "more effective, con- structive ami remedial legislation than the Republican party had placed upon the statute books in u genera- lion." Praising Ihe uilinimsh-alioit'.s coiir.'e in the war lie said: "We foujht a great war, for a great caii'n we- had a leadership Hint carried America tn greater of honor and po-.v- er and glory than she has ever known before in her entire history." Kccorti "Let no one misunderstand us. These great affairs were carried for- ward under the stimulus of American patriotism, supported by the courage and spirit of our people. All this is freely and gladly acknowledged, but surely the time has come when, be- cause of tho calculated c.rjlicism and premeditated calumnies of the opposi- tion, we are entitled to call attention to the fact Hint all of these things were accomplished under the leader- ship of :i great Democrat and of a Democratic Administration. If the Republican leaders arc not able to rejoice with u.- in this American tri- umph they should have the grace to remain silent, for it does not lie in tho mouths of those who conducted the war lo indulge in the luxury of criticism." [inferring lo congressional investi- by "smelling committees." he said tlir.t. over .SO investigations have been mane, over million dnlhrrs wasted and "Hie lesult has- l.een to prove thiil. il was lho clenncst war over fought in Ihc history of lion."
