Cut Price movement result of reduction in buying and action of Banks take up Loans declares Leffingwell Market has broken Omaha merchant asserts from Bright convention must accept treaty As Wilson wants it or admit failure of administration theory by h. N. Rickey we thin Oton the embarrassing position in which the gym of nth will find Thusn solve Atka of fran risen w in Jnene write the treaty Plank into their platform la evident it Baa been pointed out that they mum choose Between the alternative of taking the president s orders which in the judgment of Moat of the part Leader will at least jeopardise whatever Chance of Success the party May have or repudiating the president and thus play into the Harts of the republicans. Unless some More Happy solution of the vexing problem ctn be worked out by the democratic a platform makers during the next few week the convention is far More Likely take the j presidents orders than adopt the alternative . This is because j How Eyer unwise the democratic Lead or and Delegate May deem the president s inflexible position on the treaty be. The Wilson record As a in Hole is what the party must defend in the fall Campaign. They must take it a it is Good or had the bad with the Good and ask the voters continue the government in i it democratic hands. Its dark Outlook the Rinji Octant parts of the Wilson a Cord Are the president s treaty activities and his present attitude toward the treaty. From the standpoint of Public interest As affecting the result of the ejection it probably i the most important part. The democratic leaders and Fiefe Gate May protest and squirm is much a they pleas in their hearts they 1 know that Howe or unpopular the president s treaty attitude May be. They Muat endorse it unless they Are prepared admit that the item Cratie administration a. Been a failure. That of course would he deliberate suicide. That it is not altogether hopeless is due the fart that the. Republicans Are in a position in respect Tebei treaty Little less embarrassing than the demoed at. The logical thing for the republicans do we Ouid be Dei dare in their platform for ratification safeguarded by the Quot american sing Quot it Der reservations this would be an endorsement of the action of the majority of Republican senators. It is what the conservative leaders would like do a Large majority of the delegates in the Chicago convention probably will favor such a course "irreconcilable8�?� on Job rut opposed it will be the Quot irreconcilable senators led by Johnson and Rorah. They ii pc demanded that the Republican platform denounce the treaty and a Ragu of nation covenant without qualification and pledge the party have nothing do with either. This demand was recently voiced by i Borah in a Public statement and was 1 coupled with threat Bolt the Conven i lion unless the demand is heeded. Every Effort will be made during the i next two weeks by the inside group j of Republican leaders phrase a 1 treaty Plank which will be acceptable if no1 entirely amp psf it tory both the i Oder preservationists and the John son Borah quo irreconcilable. Plank of evasion Ruch a Plank would denounce the and league of nations Cove Nant As brought Hack from Europe by the president and Point w Ith Pride i the Republican senators who refused i ratify it. The Model for an evasive Plank of this character is found in the platform 1 adopted a few Days ago by the Indiana i Republican convention. Senator wat a son is credited with having drafted this j Plank and it is being discussed with interest by Republican groups. A significant incident in connection j with the efforts of the Republican i leaders find a Way out of their j treaty dilemma is former president i Taft advice the party. He warns that of the Republican convention adopts a Resolution from i which it is be inferred that the next Republican Senate .n<1 president in ill f not favor ratification of the league with i Odge reservations the convention thereby will repudiate the action of the Republican senators in the Senate Taft says such a course would alienate Many Loyal republicans and possibly endanger Republican Success at the polls in november.
