THE MAN AT THE WHEEL.
Reputliean newspapers and pnli-
Jticians throughout the country are
i harping on the possibility of Presi
dent Wilson netting the nation in
'volved in a diplomatic tangle with
: Germany that wouhl cstrau:-;e U'i
' from our allies.
j These critics lay much stress on
(lie fact that Germany's peace ovcr
1 tore:: have all been addressed to
President Wilson and none of them
to the nations with which w e are
associated in war.
We may rest assured that Presi
dent Wilson has tWo confluent" of
the povertimeiits of our allies an.!
that his negotiations are meet i ty-;
wi'h Ih'ir approval, otherwise he
would not he conduct in;; them.
Tiii-s is jpt the kind of propa
;;;uv.la the kaiser w.inls to spread in
this country, io far as arme l forte
is concerned, he has lost the war.
His only hope now lies in saving
something out of the wreck hy skill
ful diplomacy. Nothing could bene
fit him more than dissension at
!his time hetweeu the people and the
president of tlo- Pnit -d States, or
hetweeu America and the allies.
Pre-ideut ' Wilson has not forgot
ten the outraged mothers and little
jrirU in Belgium, the murders hy
German suhmarine commanders and
the wanton destruction of property
hy the kaiser's armies.
The wisdom that kept us cut of
the war until the proper time came,
and which has guided th- huihtimr
of the ;;reat..;t army and the great
est merchant marine the worM 1::-..-.-er
known, is not going to lead

Wat Record of Congressman Reavis
IJy means of circulars and newspaper advertisements, none of which how
ever, does he stand sponsor for or sign, the democratic candidate for congress
Is seeking support by willful misrepresentation and misstatements regarding
the war record of Congressman Reavis. I
Every statement which follows may he verified by the Congressional Rec
ord, which is on file in every county seat library in the district.
1. Mr. Reavis did not oppose the President in his opposition to the
McLpinore resolution, but on the contrary spoke on the floor of Congress
against the resolution. The MeLeniore resolution was not a war measure
but was disposed of not only long before we entered the war but long before
the congressional election of two years aeo. Air. Reavis's SDeech aeainst it
was circulated in this district long
2. The shipping bill was not a
101G, almost a year before we entered the war and Mr. Reavis's vote was to!
make the shipping board a non-partisan body instead of a partisan body. j
3. The Cooper amendment was not an embargo amendment, but was
designed to prevent the arming of munition ships. Mr. Reavis not only voted
for the armed ship bill but was the first one in either branch of congress to
demand that our ships be armed. Th'.s speech was delivered on February
17th, 1017, about two weeks before the President came to congres? and asked
lor legislation permitting him to arm
4. The fortifications bill was acted
venod in December. 1915, but the inference is willfully left by the Democratic
candidate that it was a war measure in a war that we did not enter until
April, 1017. j
5. In his speech against the war with Germany Mr. Reavis used the'
language quoted, but he further sai "if we pass this resolution this war be
comes our war and no patriotic congressman will deny his country the men
a.ml ;;10nf." necessary to prosecute the war to a successful and speedy termina
tion." While many who voted for war have since voted against measures
to prosecute the war Mr. Reavis has supported every measure to raise men
and money since war was declared. A man's courage should not be determined
by hi3 eagerness to get Into a fight. A safer test is to wait and see how he
fights after he gets in. j
6. Any statement that Mr. Reavis was either not present when any
revenue bill was passed or that he voted against it is utterly false.
7. Mr. Reavis did vote against the bill to permit bank directors to
cotitriitutc the profits of the bank to the Red Cross. A number of New York
barkers came, to Washington to secure legislation permitting them to make
tins contribution to the Red Cross by giving whatever of the banks' profits
they desired to that organization. Many stockholders of banks are poor people
who are dependent on the income they get from the bank for their support
One widow wrote to Congressman Reavis that the sole support of herself
an-i five children was the five hundred dollars a year she got from the bank
stock left her by her husband. This bill would have permitted the bankers
to give away the sole support of this family and to take credit to the bank
for tho contribution and the widow be given no credit at all Mr Reavis
believed that if the bankers wanted to be generous they should he generous
with their own money. He believed it dangerous to make it lawful for any
one to give away the money of another.
Mr. Reavis is familiar with the legislative condition as it pertains to the
war He spent eight weeks on the battle front in France and know the
weeds or the country and our boys over there. He is a member of thn
great judiciary committee which has had charge of a large Dart of tho wor
