A the real Issue in the coming Campaign i believe will Law honesty in government. The american people Are tired of a party whose disorganization and corruption have outraged the whole country and rendered it utterly incapable of running the government. The Republican party has no leaders worthy of the name and As for its policies they and the rest of the country alike arc searching for them. The republicans took office in 1921.

Little legislation is needed. A a Purt to govern Well must he honest. In the words of Jefferson,1 the whole Art of government consists in being a the republicans have taught tile people to look to the government for favors. This has inspired Many to contribute to their Campaign in View of the favors promised. This Cardinal principle of the Republican party has led to the mess in Washington. Men who serve a party that promises favors once they Are in Power Are the broadest shoulders. A True americanism does not lie in loud declamation or noisy rhetoric nor in boasting of our Power and grandeur or parading before Mankind our own self righteousness. It does not consist in a vast contempt for other nations or rude discourtesy in private or social Intercourse. There is no real patriotism in had manners. A stability of the world Waits on three things statement of the amount of the German indemnity restoration of order in Russia and definition of americans attitude toward the world problems created by the War. A of course the league of nations is not perfect. No Hun an instrument Ever is. Hut there Are two things about it it is a beginning and it is the Only one by which it is possible to secure the Means for which it was created. A i have no desire to Appeal to the american people in any fourth of july style. I have no desire to Shine As a Cicero. I prefer to present to my reasoning fellow citizens the fact that the world needs a league. This is the Only league that we can have and such being the Case it is the duty and interest of America to join this Effort to relieve the world of wars As soon As final blow is inevitable on United states treaty making form the failure of the Senate to ratify the treaty of Versailles and the covenant of the league of nations Only accentuated what to or. Davis mind was an inherent defect in the Cut institution. He cites the loss of a treaty in 1x24 for the annexation of Texas through refusal of the Senate and the loss of the Virgin islands when first offered in 1865 for what was one third of the Price later paid it that for Twenty years after the defeat of the treaty in 1888 the fisheries dispute with Canada left to disturb International relations and that the treaty of peace with Spain was ratified by Only one vote. The two thirds Rule he says. Was dictated into the Constitution because of the then prevailing fear and Jea Loiis of executive Power and the Mutual jealousy of the states Ile quotes John Hayes remarks that a the fathers in their Wisdom ordained that for All time the kickers should rules a and that a a treaty entering into the Senate is like a Hull going into the Arena no one can Tell just How or when the Aal blow will fall hut one thing is certain it will never leave the Arena concerning his party before his nomination a we must convince the people that our party is clean courage us and constructive and that it has a candidate in whom the people will have the highest Confidence. No Patriot however partisan ran exult in the sorry disclosures of greed corruption and Mal administration that have shocked the country and shamed America before the world. Big business is something that All into honorable men want to serve so Long As big business is not Worth the Price when asked to quit his Legal clients in order to lie available As a presidential candidate a in Exchange for a Chance for the presidency am i to abandon Forth with and immediately a Law practice which is both pleasant to me and within modest hounds profitable to throw Over honorable clients and de sort a group of professional colleagues who Are Able upright and Loyal a i have been called upon to serve a great Many different kinds of men a some of them Good some of them indifferently Good and others Over whose character we will drop the veil of Charity.
