Ramsay Macdonald. Intends to depart from the devious path of secret diplomacy and contentious argument and adopt a Frank open. Man to Man relationship with the premiers of other countries he believes that most of the evils Aud suspicions which at present afflict Europe can be removed by the establishment of a friendlier Franker and More neighbourly among a he nation.4 it was made Clear in official quarters today that the prime minister is utterly without Faith in the Efficacy of armament Iii settling disputes or preserving peace. The solution of great Britain present difficulties with France the Premier holds rests deep in human nature and can be attained Only by appealing to Frances better self. In Pursuit of this aim the Premier is eager to have a personal meeting with m. Poincare. Leagues to vote on names among them were William Gibbs Mcadoo Thomas w. Gregory former attorney general George Creel former head of the democratic publicity information Bureau of the War period and so the list ran. Or. Jjohn Eny merely a mentioned casually some of i he men who had been employed by him As attorneys. Had or. Doh end detonated a t n. T. Bomb he could not have done More damage. One perfectly first class presidential Boom. That of William Gibbs Mcadoo immediately went to the garage for repairs. As a going concern it was shot full of Oil. Republicans tier up a if was a Good Boom while it lasted mournfully remarked one of or. Or Adoor a chief supporters but it was feeling admitted that its Days of glory had departed for the present. It is doubtful if it can Ever be revived. The result of this disclosure in the House was instantaneous. Up to that time the republicans had the appearance of Small boys caught stealing apples. They were humiliated and depressed. Although every Man in Congress realized that a scandal is lust a Likely to break out in Ore party As another yet it made the republicans have a gone feeling at i their stomach so Long As the smear ing process was All against member i of their own party. Doheny a head share any taint of any kind. I deny that insinuation As monstrously unfair. For those who like myself can stand up and make Good this denial. It is not so important but particularly do i resent the insinuation that because the late Franklin k. Lane after Bis service As Secretary of the Interior resigned and became quite openly in officer of the Doheny companies thereby shares the taint of corruption. A what i have done was within my rights a a lawyer. In my representation of the Doheny companies in mexican matters i never dealt in political influence nor did i ask or Promise or give or receive political favors or other favors. If my conduct in acting professionally in these matters is open to criticism then no lawyer an take a Cabinet office Inlet he can be Rich enough to give up Roll professional employment in business when lie comes out of office. I do not believe that any such Standard is Wise or proper. I believe that the spirit of fair play of the honest Milf i american people will not misunderstand my course in this matter nor take their minds off of those who Are guilty of betraying their Trust As disclosed in this investigation a i Democrat was a fairy god father to the Republican again they walk erect and or. Garrett is wishing he j never dared the republicans to name j a a Ingle Democrat a official or oth i or Wise who had been mixed up in j the Oil Case. In nor Pirritt no that it is particularly bad for Ollk r or Nii or in i i or Mcadoo an attorney. To take a i 1/11 i ill Lluli will i of a a from an Oil company.

Of fortunate thing of it is for the democrats that they abused or. Fall unmercifully for having taken anything from the Oil interests after having left the Cabinet and thereby seeming to realize both on his personal relations with the administration in Power and on what he might have done while a Cabinet member. This was before it was Learned that Doheny had loaned fall $190,099 while fall was still a Cabinet member. Burke charges Oklahoma reds Are exploited Washington d.

While Wilson was still in office my Jadoo his son in Law and former Sec i ret Ary of Treasury was representing j men who had favors to obtain from j i the government. Regardless of How j 1 ethical May have been the employ ment. His friends acknowledge that in the present temper of the Public. The thing looks bad and produces the unfortunate necessity of having something to explain. So far As former attorney Gener j a1 Gregory is concerned the president had selected him upon the recommendation of democrats t h Ern selves. Gregory says he had not definitely accepted the presidents of Fer and proposed to look Over is Hooks to see if there was anything there which might prevent him from j acting As counsel for the government in prosecuting and investigating possible frauds for the government. His memory had served him i falsely. He did rot recollect in the i of his business having obtained a $2,090 fee from the Doheny in j i Teress although an examination of his books showed he had received $15,000. Of course or. Gregory could j not serve and the president promptly j ruled him out. Enter Pottie retie then came another feature of the situation when sex senator Pomerene of Ohio was chosen As the democratic member of this presidential investigating committee. Now Pom Eren is one of the Ablest and cleanest democrats who Ever sat in. The United states Senate. Furthermore he i comes from Ohio. He was beaten for re election last year because he had been so unfortunate As to incur the hostility of labor up to the time he was Defeated he was regarded As one of the most Likely possibilities for the democratic nomination for president. He retired gracefully into obscurity but has suddenly been yanked out of it by prudent Coolidge. With Mcadoo but of the Way.
