by saying that on awakening Sun
day morning she for the first time

first husband, a circus performer,
named A. L. DcRocha, died in Vir

that the senati will have something
to ray about the foreign relations,
as the constitution contemplates. I
ha J rather have the couifsel of tho
senate than ajrthe political bosses
"I want to have done with per
sontl government. I want to put
an end to autocracy reared in the
name of democracv,"
The senator also referred to th$
senate filibuster, which blocked sev
crai big appropriation bills in the
last days of the democratic congress,
and said that, while he did not ap
prove at that time, the development
had saved about $1,000,000,000 bv
putting . the 'supply measures over
into the republican congress.
Suggestions Correct.
"In cartoon, in solemn editorial,
in many utterances from the plat
form," he said, "it has been suggest
ed that, in case of a republican vic
tory, the incoming president pro
poses to permit the senate to have
some say in determining the policy
cf the government. I gladly pro
claim all these suggestions to be lit
erally correct I rejoice that the
Umted States senate is functioning
again. We need it to save America.
"If a rcnubJican administration is
chosen next November you can be
very certain that tht senate, theoret
ically, if tiot sctnally, composed of
96 leading men of the republic, will
have something to say about the
foreign relations, as the constitution
con templates.
"It has become quite the fashion
for unheeding partisans of demo
cratic faith to cry out against the
senate and the part it plays in t'th
fedral government. One might as
well proclaim, the constitution a
fraud. The senate is in reality the
security oi stable, popular govern
ment." Preises Past Record.
Praising "he record of the present
senate, the nominee declared it "had
saved American nationality" when
the executive branch had proposed
to surrender it. He dissented from
arrogation of unconstitutional pow
ers by the president, and said it was
the purpore of the republicans to
"have done with personal govern
ment" and to "put an end to. au
tocracy." The rule requiring a two
thirds vote in the senate7 to ratify
treaties he characterized as one of
the wisest provisions in the consti
tution The league of, nations was touched
on briefly, Senator Harding declar
ing article 10 would break down the
orderly processes of the federal gov
ernment by transferring from con
gress to a foreign council the pow
er to decide when the nations should
go to war. . t
It would be a orry thing," said
