Wilson Quotes Roosevelt and Lodge
in Support of the League

San Diego, Cal., Sept. 20. An ex extract
tract extract from a magazine article written
inl914 by Theodore Roosevelt, was
used by President Wilson in an ad address
dress address here yesterday, as an argument
in favor of the League of Nations.
Speaking to a cheering crowd which
filled the great San Diego stadium,
the president also quoted from Sen Senator
ator Senator Lodge, one of the most bitter op opponents
ponents opponents of the treaty in its present
form, and declared that in framing
the league covenant, the Versailles i
conference had followed the advice of
these and other republican statesmen.
"I am glad to align myself with
such utterances," said Mr. Wilson,
while the crowd cheered. "Here in
concrete form is the fulfillment of the
pian they advocated."
Declaring the people had not been
told the truth about what the treaty
contained, Mr., Wilson added, while
the crowd cheered again, that if the
American people did know the truth
no man would have the audacity to
take the risk of trying to impair such
an effort toward liberty and justice.
AT LOS ANGELES
Los Angeles, Sept. 20. A parade
and two speeches here are on the
president's program today.
The following from the Washing Washington
ton Washington Post shows to what lengths the
radical labor element is. trying to
carry its order:
It appears from the press reports
that the committee of union labor
men which intruded upon Eresident
Wilson's day of rest to urge the cause
of the workingman upon his attention
really came to ask him to open the
jail doors and free convicted crimi criminals.
' This is not the cause of organized
labor, and workingmen should not
permit themselves to be made the
dupes of the radicals who defy the
laws of the republic from behind the
mask of union labor.

committee brought to the president at
Seattle? Were more wages, shorter
working hours or better working con conditions

who are serving terms because as
anti-Americans they ran afoul of the
laws of the land.

Mooney, serving time for throwing a
bomb into a preparedness parade in
San Francisco, resulting in the death
of several people. Mboney's case has
run the gamut of the courts and of
the eexcutive pardoning power, and
those charged with the enforcement of
the law have been convinced of his

whose offense in violating the espion espionage

than the offenses committed by capi capitalistic
talistic capitalistic profiteers during the war. Yet
it is a matter of record that Debs
used his influence as a radical leader
to obstruct the draft, admitted it in
open court and gloried in his attitude.
To condone his offense would be to
set at naught the laws enacted for
the national defense.
The committee, it is stated, also
desires the release of three local men
who are serving terms in prison for
"seditious conspiracy." In short, they
wish the president to declare a gen general

the. Debs-Berger-Mooney brand, who
have been caught in the law's net.

There is a very real value for every American in the
fact that by combining thp money spent for useless things one
could purchase something really worth while.
And that is all there is to intelligent saving.
Not hoarding not miserliness but wise judgment about
every cent that is spent. Get full money's worth; give up
foolish present expenditures in order to obtain, in the future,
some really substantial luxury.
Right now such intelligent saving is more than mere
thrift; more than a promoter of personal or family efficiency.

its war-assumed obligations, if you will convert these savings

A VITAL QUESTION
Aboard President Wilson's Special
Train. Just before President Wilson
arrived In San Francisco on his toar
of the country in behalf of the League
of Nations, there came an opportunity
for him to answer a ritai question,
concerning which his political friends,
as well as his lolitical foemen. hare
lately been increasingly insistent.
The question was, "How about Ire Ireland
land Ireland ?"
Replies To Labor Council
The president made certain replies
to a series of interrogations dealing
with that problem, propounded to him
by the San Francisco Labor Council.
And now the whole Pacific coast is
eagerly discussing his responses and
what they meant. The queries were
sent to Mr. Wilson by telegraph, am
his train was rolling through the Sac Sacramento
ramento Sacramento Valley, and his explanations
were made as soon as he reached the
metropolis of the Pacific coast.
Question No. 1 was: "Under the
covenant does this nation obligate it itself
self itself to assist any member of the
league in putting down a rebellion of
its subjects or conquered people T Ob Obviously
viously Obviously this meant: "Are we obliged
to help England put down Irish revo revolutions?"
lutions?" revolutions?" The answer was: "It does
not." Friends of Ireland took this to
mean: "We will not,"
Question No. 2: "Under the core core-nant,
nant, core-nant, can this nation independently
recognize a government whose peo people
ple people seek to achieve or have achieved
their independence from a member of
the league?" In other words, this
meant: "Can we reorganize Ireland's
claim to being a republic T
The President replied: "The Inde Independent
pendent Independent action of the United States
In a matter of this kind is in no way
Limited or affected by the covenant of
the league of nations." In other
words: "We can recognize Ireland if
and when the proper time comes,
without regards to the league.
Question No. 3: "Under the cove covenant
nant covenant are those subject nations or peo peoples
ples peoples only that are mentioned in the
peace treaty entitled to the right of
self-determination, or does the league
possess the right to accord a similar
privilege to other subject nations or
peoples T This meant, for example,
"Why Poland and not Ireland?
Answer: "It was not possible for
the peace conference to act with re regard
gard regard to the self-determination of any
territories except those which belong belonged
ed belonged to the defeated empires. But in
the covenant Article XI, is set up for
the first time a forum to which all
claims of self-determination which
are likely to disturb the peace of the
World or the good understanding be between
tween between nations, can be brought.'
The section of Article XI to which
President Wilson refers reads as fol follows:
lows: follows: "It is declared to be the friend friendly

to bring to the attention of the assem assembly
bly assembly of council any circumstances'
whatever affecting international re relations
lations relations which thereatens to disturb

Some persons interested in the Irish
problem declare that this provision
