In his opening statement before the Senate sub-committee charged with investigating political campaign funds, Republican National Chairman Will H. Hays dis-posed quite completely of every one of Gov. Cox's malicious and false charges. Bear in mind that the time for "bluff" on this subject has gone by. Under oath, Chairman Hays branded each and every one of the Democratic nominee's' statements as false. You may be sure that he is prepared to satisfy every fair mind in the "country on that score. The most searching cross-examination is permissible on every point that the Republican Chairman introduced in his direct statement. If he had anything to conceal he would, you may be sure, have been less sweeping. But he evades nothing. He invites the most thorough probing that even so searching, unscruplous we might say, a cross-examiner as Senator James A. Reed of Missouri, a member of the sub committee, is capable of. There is earnest j of Republican probity. But the public is not asked to be satisfied with that All the facts are to be developed with respect to the Republican campaign fund from the Republican side. That the American people will be convinced that no corruption has been attempted or even contemplated is certain. What then ? What will- Gov. Cox and Democratic parrots who have been repeating his malic-ions lies do? If there is a shred of honesty in their make-up they will, of course, admit their error as gracefully as possible and cease to accuse their political competitors. But if there were a shred of honesty and fairness in them, would they have voiced the charges before securing proofs in support? Chairman Hays goes farther than denouncing the charges as absolutely false; he declares that they were "libelous in purpose." That is handing it back to Gov. Cox with interest The Democratic nominee is thus pilloried before the country . as a deliberate defamer. It is up to Gov. Cox at least to try to prove his state- tnents. He cannot fail to appear as a witness before the Senate sub-committee unless he wishes the people to understand that he confesses himself as low morally as he has given reason for their believing him to be. dated in so short a time. The Legislature : might pass remedial legislation, but Gov. I Cor.vweix decides not to summon an ex traordinary session because the lawmakers at the last special session refused to act on his suggestion that the bill necessary to enable all women to qualify to vote be passed. The West Virginia Governor's position is not unreasonable in the circumstances. Still, we hope that he, as well as the Alsatians to reconcile themselves to their new masters. The home language of Alsace had for centuries been a mongrel French and German tongue. It was as much German as French, but because it was unintelligible to the conquerors it was ordered that the dialect should give way to pure German, and pure French was forbidden. The French government recognizes the difficulties in the way of an arbitrary SALVAGING A LOVE TOKEN Bv FONTAINE FOX j Gov '.Holcomb of Connecticut will do all j change in language and the impossibility possible to assure the fullest expression by t of making the transition summarily.

Americans sincerely desirous of participa tion by .this country in an association of nations to preserve world order on a basis of justice must give intelligent thought to how it may be -brought about. If they are convinced that election of Gov. Cox to the presidency will, result in ratification of the Wilsoii League of Nations Covenant by the Senate and that such ratification will, ipso facto, establish the League conformably to their ideals of what should be, they will, of course, vote the Democratic ticket. But the facts are against such conviction. Gov. Cox himself has no illusions on that score. He is trimming his sails to catch reserva-tionist votes, for he is willing that people believe that reservations protective of American interests will not be opposed by him if thus he can get favorable action on the German Treaty by the Senate. For vote-getting purposes he is in an equivocal position. He cannot as president insist on the Wilson League and at the same time accept the Republican reservations. Without the Republican reservations there will be no sort of ratification. That is settled, for it is absolutely impossible to overturn the Senate to the point necessary to give two-thirds majoriay for the League as submitted. He is committed to the Wilson League. To expect him to accept the Americanizing reservations put forward by Senator Lodge would be to recognize in advance that his pledged word is worthless. Americans do not want that kind of a man in the White House. But suppose it were possible for Gov. Cox to get Senate action that President Wilson has been powerless to secure simply because the sentiment of America is against his kind of a league, what would President Cox do with it? The Wilson League is dead by the will and consent of the only Powers having capacity to make it function in any degree as designed. They have abandoned it because it is futile and a sham. The Democratic party has no mysterious power to change those facts. So Americans can hope for nothing from the Wilson League. But we do not believe they are willing to let the business rest with that There is a nractical way to bring the nations together for the establishment of just relationships. Armed alliances, and the Wilson League is one in essence, cannot do it. as has been demonstrated often. Senator Harding and his Republican assov ciates propose a means of achieving .that for which Americans prayed as they entered the world war. It is the only practical suggestion before the country for establishing peace on a basis of justice. Nothing in the interest of peace, for America or the world, can be secured through election of Cox. He knows .nothing but the re jected Wilson scheme. Therefore people really concerned for peace as durable as it can be made will voe the Republican ticket ' J fore German will not be forbidden though efforts will be made to divert the people of the I from that language to the more elegant 111 lC ' , , At.' . , 1 rrencn. i ne .rtisauan ciaiect win oe permitted to remain the common manner of speech for it is dear to the peasantry of - j that land since through its use they were able to confuse their alien masters. Thus I for the present both German and French will be taught in the schools, though the former will not be introduced until the pupils are in the fourth year. From its location on the Rhine it is recognized that knowledge of German has its uses for the inhabitants of Alsace. In taking the view that German shall not be prohibited the French exhibit a breadth of mind that is commendable in that they might not unreasonably have banned the gutteral tongue simply because of what it has meant to them. But in trade it will be useful and national antipathy is not allowed to stand in the way of the material benefit of the people of the reclaimed province. This treatment is in such contrast to the manner in which Germany attempted to re-fashion the Alsatians that by its moderate program it serves to make clearer the ruthlessness of the German effort to convert a captive people to Teutonic way? and how abortive it proved. The midget who threatened to "punch" a big: policeman may have been in a humorous mood himself, but he misjudged the temperament of the officer. Joking with a policeman comes under the same prohibition as talking back.

The womn whr scrubbed and cleaned a pell'ng place before sitting down to assist in the assessment of women voters gives insertion of one reform that will result from women suffrage. Ambassador Davis announces that "he is coming back home tp go to work."

To Back Up the Amendment. - If under existing state law the women of Connecticut cannot vote in November a special session of the Legislature to pass enabling statutes should be summoned. Nor would a call for such issued by Gov. Hol-COmb be inconsistent with his refusal tor the last several months to convene the Leg islature in extraordinary session to consider the XlXth Amendment proposal. While The Gazette Times, in common with, all others favorably disposed toward wnfranchisemcnt of American women, would have welcomed ratification by Connecticut' attempts to dictate his course to Gov. ' Holcomb were clearly out of place. Whatever his personal sentiment toward the Anthony amendment the Governor of Connecticut was necessarily bound to consider the provision of the state Constitu- . ticn covering special sessions.

"It is this way: 1 have two strings to my bow. so to speak, and don't know which one to tie fast. The one is a most delightful widow of just my own age, who has a house and a farm, and needs a man around. She seemed to be t lie whole thing until a sweet maid came" to teach school in the neighborhood. Hhe pleases me well, if anything better than the widow, except that sh is not as well fixed, nor as well qualified for domestic pursuits. "Having lncn taught to beware of widows, I have held back. Will you give me your opinion in this case?" That Depends. l lie rcMlow goes on to say that he could be happy with either were t'other dear charmer away. That when he Is in tha presence of the widow lie loves her best and continues to do so until he meets the maid, and then the conditions are reversed. That is a dire predicament to be in. and one that requires a lot of nerve to readjust and rectify. Sometimes it just can't be done. In such case both had better be cut out and a new attachment tormed. One from one and nothing remains. Thus it is that the widow and the maid cancels, leaving nothing for the fellow to bank on. He appears to be of the notion that marriage might settle his affections on one of them. Matrimony is something of a settler, but it won't settle distracted affections; and don't forget it. Many a distracted man and woman has tried it, but their affections ran riot just the same, with the difference that they ran sneakingly, and then had to deny It To marry a woman and love another just as well is very dangerous, the danger lying in the aptness to love the distant one most when the near one happens to cloy a bit Widows Are 0. K. There isn't anything wrong with widows not with some widows. Of course, some are not desirable. This is because they are human, and being human they are liable to possess ugly, undesirable streaks, just the same as other folk. Widows have an advantage over maiden sisters in that they have had experience. Sometimes this may be accounted a disadvantage, particularly if thetr experience has been of a character to make them uppish and finicky. These are liable to flash up the late lamented, which tends to make the present Incumbent lament his taking off, for if he hadn't been taken off h wouldn't have been taken in. It is well, therefore, to use great car In sizing up a widow. Take into account the disposition of her late lamented, and how they got along. And then figure out the probabilities of your being "eble to fill the bill, for what a wife is, that is what the widow will be, and it is no easy matter to take the kinks out of her. The maid is not so likely to be troubled with kinks, therefore may be all the more easily shaped to your ideas of what a wife should be. The widow has been shaped by another whose ways may not be your ways. H'iVo end Widows. There are widows and widows, as you may know; or if you don't you may find out before you die. at least you can if you try. The woman who was a wife for some time, acquired certain domestic habits, notions concerning housekeeping, and the rights and privileges of husbands. These belong to her, and they are seldom affected by the death of the man upon whom she practiced, or from whom sne learned. i . If you can take his place in the domestic circle, as well as in her affections, she Is a safe investment But if you have well defined notions concerning domestic affairs,, and are uppish enough to pose as the head of the whole concern, you should tie quite certain that your notions agree, for if they don't there will be trouble sure. Especially should widowers be waxy of widows. Husbands acquire certain fixed notions concerning domestic affairs. Some are taught by their wives, and some have been teachers, so that when a widow and a widower meet in the domestic arena it is suggestive of that old proposition: "When an irresistible body meets an immovable hndr. what is the result?" You can figure this out at your leisure," and it would be better to have her assistance. Young Widows. t What is more delightful, more charming, or more fascinating than a handsome young widow ? Ye maidens fair will quickly answer, "Why a handsome young woman, of course." And she is about right, for there isn't anything else in the same class with them, Oldish men, and even old fellows, have a leaning toward widows, and especially toward youngish ones. This Is unfortunate, for a youngish widow very likely had a youngish husband, and will naturally expect youngish attentions. If the new husband insists on his oldish ways she will b disappointed, and a disappointment tn marriage is a disappointment for life. 1 It is better, far better, for the oldish widower, or even bachelor, to take up with an oldish maid, one who has no practical knowledge of husbands. Ignorance will be bliss for her, for she will accept the new conditions as being all right and proper and will cheerfully endeavor to adapt herself to her new environment Whether or not our correspondent will find consolation, or hcln. in the foreo4n remains to be seen. But that he will do as he pleases will be a safe gamble, and that the widow will be the winner is worth odds, for widows are usually winners.
