THE BEE: OMAHA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1919.
BY SEN. BORAH
Senator from Illinois Also Re
plies to Recent Speech by
Reed Opposing League
Washington, Feb. 24. Speaking
in the senate today in support of
the proposed league of nations, Sen
ator Lewis f Illinois, democratic
whip, declared the league would
not 'Contravene the advice of Wash
ington or the Monroe doctrine, and
broadly intimated that personal and
political antagonism to President
Wilson Jay behind the opposition in
Senator Lewis replied specifically
to recent speeches by Senators
'-ioran oi iflano, repuDiican, ana
Heed of, Missouri, democrat. His
address marked resumption of sen
ate discussion of the league with
prospects of daily speeches until ad
journment of congress a week from
Asks for Better Plan.
' Attacks upon the league, Senator
Lewis asserted, were based on fajse
fears and designed to awaken preju
dice. Demanding that opponents
present their plan for world peace,
"Have you any? Is there only
the voice of veto from you all cm
whatever plan merely that it is
proposed by Wilson? -
"The country is not deceived; it
will understand and when it does
know that for party politics or per
sonal prejudices their representa
tives would continue to consign the
nation's children to the misery of
cripples to the agony of sightless
eyes and order the destruction of
their young lives forever; these
Christian, mothers and patriot fath
ers will cry down on the heads of
them all the curse of heaven.
Animosity Toward Wilson? ""
"If Woodrow Wilson were a Ro
man Cataliue charged by a Cicero
with cotispiracy to surrender his
land to the enemy of his country
and Taft a modern Aaron Burr,
they could not have been more vio
lently impugned than each has been
!v the leaders of the opposition to
the league of nations," said. Mr.-f
"Nothing so proved the animosity
to Wilson's success in any design
;is the refusal to grant him his re
quest, cabled as he sailed for Amer
ica, to postpone discussions of the
constitution of the league until he
could arrive and explain the circum
stances of its formation. The fact
that there would be months after
Wilson returns to Faris for the con
clusion of his work, in which dis
cussion of every nature could be
had, was of no influence on those
who preferred to exhibit every
where their defiance of any request
he might make.

IT IDA GROVE
Governor Harding, Who Par
doned Ernest Rathbun, is
to Testrfy Before the
Grand Jury. 1
I Ida drove, la., Feb. 24. (Spe
! trial.) Word was received this
morning that Gov. W. L. Harding
would arrive here soon to testify
before the grand jury in the Ernest
.The message was sent fiom Car
roll, la., where the governor was
compelled to stop for medical treat
ment when he was seized with an
attack of illness last week en route
from Des Moines to Ida Grove. It
was addressed to Attorney General
H. M. Havner and signed by
Charles Witt, the governor's secre
tary. Governor Last Witness.
The attorney general declared
that the grand jury would submit a
report after hearing the statement
of the governor, who will be the last
Mr. iKvner, assisted by Attor
neys J. W. Kindig and J. L. Ken
nedy of Sioux- City, is said to be ii
tempting to obtain an indictment
against young Rathbun for perjury.
It is alleged, the prisoner con
fessed to having assaulted Elsie
Hargens a year ago, and following
his trail for criminal assault las;
spring, which proved one of the
most sensational in the history of
Ida couniy, his conviction and sub
sequent pardon by the governor, an
effort is being made to obtain an
indictment for false swearing in the
statement upon which Governor
Harding based his action in setting
aside the verdict of the court.
Town in Turmoil.
Excitement is at a high pitch here.
Feeling against Rathbun, who was
not committed to jail until last
Thursday, is bitter. He 'was arrest
ed and confined to the Ida countv
jail upon instructions of the attorney
general, who holds that the eovernor
Kexceeded. his authority in granting
a pardon to the accused, in as much
as he did not submit the application
first to the state board. Mr. Havner
located in the clerk's office the origi
nal committment to the state peni
tentiary issued after the trial, in
which Rathbun was found guilty,
and ordered Sheriff Dalquist im
mediately to take the accused to the
Attorney George Clark, for the
prisoner, at once applied to Judge E.
G. Alberts for the release of his
client on a writ of habeas corpus.
Rathbun is being held without bond
pending a hearing, which has been
set for Wednesday. Governor Hard
ing is expected to appear at the
v Serious Charges Made.
A great deal of speculation is be
ing indulged in as to the nature of
the grand jury's report, which is
predicted not only will concern
Rathbun. Charges of attempts to
bribe jwors at the trial have been
circulated freely. The grand jury
also is said to be investigating ru
mors to the effect that Rathbun's
father gave an attorney $6,000 only
.recently. This money is said to have
been m addition to a regular fee.
It is said that the attorney gen
eral has remained-ia. the grand jury
room throughout the investigation.
Mr. Havner refused to say on what
matters the governor would be
questioned. People here are lookifl'g
for several indictments with the re
port of the grand jury.
Ernest(Rathbun and Ray O'Meara,
19 years eld, the sons of wealthy and
influential farmers living near Ida
Grove, are alleged to have been driv
ing in Rathbun's automobile last
spring when they met Elsie -.Hargens
and another girl on the street.
The boys were not acquainted with
the girls, .hut they stopped and en
gaged them in conversation. -They
were invited to get in the car and
go for a ride and accepted the invi
tation. The automobile was stopped
a short distance from the city limits
knd all four of the occupants alight
ed and took a walk through the
woods. The boys are said to have
rban'o'led the girls roughly and Miss
Hargens companion tied. Miss Har
gens is alleged to have been held a
prisoner and criminally assaulted by
Were in Omaha.
A report df the affair was made to
County Attorney Clark, who obtain
ed warrants for the arrest of Rath-
nun and UMeara. When the boys
learned that warrants, charging
criminal assault, were in the hands
of the sheriff, they took Rathbun's
car and left town. They spent about
two weeks in Omaha while fugitives
from justice and returned to the
Lhoiiic of William Rathbun, a brother
of Ernest Rathbun. living on a farm
about two miles from Ida Grove.
William Rathbun advised his broth
er and O'Meara to surrender them
selves to the sheriff. This was done
after arrangements had been made
for their release on bonds.
Attorney Genera! Havner interest
ed himself in the case from the first
and sent O.'O. Rock, chief state
agent, and three assistants to Ida
Grove to make an investigation and
obtain evidence against the twy
boys. The state agents are alleeod
to have obtained a signed statement
from Rathbun admitting his guirt
upon the promise that he would b:
exempted from proscution and that
O'Meara would be made to suffer for
O'Meara Found Guilty.
O'Meara was found guilty by a
jury and sentenced to life in 'the
state penitentiary. His case now is
in the supreme court. Rathbun, who
also appealed his case, remained at
liberty on bonds until his pardon
was signed by Governor Harding. It
was thought the case had been disr
pos.ed of finally when the attorney
general reopened it a short while
ago with another grand jury investi
gation. Governor Harding was subnoeV
naed to testify and was taken tick
at Carroll before he arrived here.
While the governor was confined to
his bed the attorney general made
the point that the state's chief execu
tive had no authority to pardon
Rathbun without having first sub
mitted the case to the state board.
This, he charged, was not done,
and the attorney, general contends

He played leading roles with lulia

as with Henrietta Crosman. His
portrayal of the brutal Wolf Larsen

who is appearing with his own
that the pardon was illegal. Mr.
Havner unearthed the committment
filed in the clerk's office with the
papers in the case, and ordered
Rathbun taken immediately to Ana
mosa to begin serving his life term.
The attorney general filed his
answer this morning to the petition
for a writ of habeas corpus. Attor
ney Clark declared he wfou!d file a
demurrer to the attorney? general's
answer. Argument on the demurrer
will be heard first when the case is
called Wednesday. If the demurrer
is sustained by the court, Rathbun
will be given his freedom, as far as
the attorney generals attempt to
ignore the governor's pardon is con
cerned. It is possible, however, the
prisoner will be rearrested on anoth

of the grand jury. If the demurrer
is not sustained by the court, argu
