HIGH AIM FREELY CONCEDED
United States Not Self-Seeking,
Says High Chancellor. .
CUBA CITED AS INSTANCE
Wilson's Policy Interpreted as Mean
ing United States Is Willing to
Accept Responsibility in
LONDON, Nov. 27. The Thanksgiv
ing dinner of the American Society
here tonight was noteworthy because
of the pronouncement of the British
government's indorsement of the Mon
roe doctrine by Viscount Haldane, lord
high chancellor. Three hundred and
fifty American men and women, Willi
a large number of British guests, were
present, and they cheered Lord Ilal
dane's words again and again.
Robert N. Fairbanks, president or
the society, proposed "The King," and
Lord Haldane proposed "The President
of the United States."
"I recently made a visit to - the
United States," Lord Haldane said,
"and came back not only with a vivll
recollection of the cordial'wekome ;
received, but with a deep sense of the
high ideals the British and Aniertea.ii
nations hold in common the high
ideals of citizenship of the two coun
tries." Policy Aot of Conquest.
Referring to the President, he said:
'Before he became President, Mr.
Woodrow Wilson was a thinking man
and a moralist. In studying his ca
reer I find that he has not ceased to
be a thinker and a moralist because
he has become the holder of a great
office. It is not his expressed declara
tion that the policy of the United States
is not one of conquest or annexation,
but the world looks to the United States
with its enormous position and posses
sions to carry on Its traditions without
adding to its possessions.
, "That Is our course, also; nor is it
the case that when the United States,
Intervenes in any matter It Is done
for its own advantage. It was not the
case with Cuba, to which the United
States restored Independence. England
Itself has done the same thing in South
Africa, where we gave back liberty to
those with whom we fought."
High Aim Conceded.
Speaking of the Monroe doctrine, he
said that the United States considered
Herself responsible for the liberties of
the small nations of that hemisphere.
He could see what was in the mind of
the President of that time that the
responsibility rested with the United
States to secure good government and
fair treatment for those countries.
He Interpreted President Wilson's
policy to mean that the United States
was ready to accept tho responsibility
of insuring good terms herself in those
countries and to those who went there,
and that the United States should sec
up high ideals of policy, of justice and
"I am not sure that anyone should
speculate on the interpretation of that
policy, ' continued the high chancellor,
"but I have thought myself at liberty
to say what I have. It is true, in
deed, that a high spirit and a high
aim have been brought into the policy
of the United States in its dealings
with adjacent countries,' and It is be
cause the President has taken the at
titude he has a step which none can
out admire, whatever its consequence
may be that 1 propose good health
to Mr. Woodrow Wilson, the President,
and Mr. Woodrow Wilson, the man."

Sir John A. Simon, the attorney
general, proposed tho health of the

and declared him to be the worthy
successor of his predecessors. He said:

other. America has sent us rag time;
wo have sent you militant suffrag
Mr. 'Page referred to the warm re
ception which the American ambassa
dor had received in England and whiuh
he knew was a tribute to his country.
Speaking of the difficulties of his of
fice, he said that when the ambassador
referred to the debt which Acierlci
owed England, American citizens of
Irish, German, Polish and Lithuanian
blood gathered to adopt resolutions de
nouncing him. Referring to Lord Hal
dane's speech, he said: . ,
"The American Nation Is not one
