Sir. Wilson Refuses to Give Details
of League to Senate in Ad
" vance of SIzninz.
WASHINGTON". June IS. President
Wilson, facing a divided senate, baa de
cided to carry his fight for ratification
of the league of nations covenant di
rectly to the people in a country-wide
speaking tour. Be expects to beg-in the
trip as soon as he returns from Paris.
The president's decision was revealed
litre today coincident with receipt of a
message in which he declined to five
the senate. In advance of signing, the
official text of tne peace treaty, re
quested in a resolution adopted over
vigorous opposition of the league sup
Neither development caused great sur
prise here, but each served to empha
size the president a position and to pro
vide further subject matter for the de
rate which begins tomorrow on Sena
tor Knox's resolution to put the senate
on record against accepting the league
covenant along with the peace treaty,
Teatatite I' la us Completed.
A tentative Itinerary for the speak
ing trip has been completed by secre
tary Tumulty, but It will not be made
public until Mr. Wilson finally has ap
proved it. It is expected, however, that
the tour will carry him into the far
west and will occupy many days. It
was said hi probably would devote
most attention to western states where
jcague opposition nas guinea tne great
est headway.
As nearly as officials here can pro
diet. Mr. Wilson will reach Washing
ton about July . will lay the treaty
formally before the senate and then
possibly on Independence day will be
Ktn a swing around the circle that will
eclipse in extent and In spirit all his
previous direct appeals to the people.
It is regarded as certain that opposi
tion speakers will follow the presi
dent's special train through the doubt
ful states.
Opoaltioa Senators Silent.
Opposition senators generally, how
ever, declined today from making any
i-ommeot on the executive's plan of
campaign. The message declining to
send the treaty text also was received
in silence when it was read to the sen
ate, but Senator Johnson, republican,
of California, who introduced the reso
lution making the request. Is exected
to make the president's action the sub
ject of a senate speech within the next
few days.
Notification of the president's deci
sion to withhold the treaty text was
sent through the state department, o
which he senate's request was . ad
dressed. In a letter to the senate
Frank L. Polk, acting secretary of
state, said he had been Instructed by
the president to say that "he (the pres

ficially to the senate a text which is
provisional and not definite."
. Important Poieta lavolved.
The letter also pointed out that
many points of great moment are un
der consideration," and added that "the
text will, of course, not be complete
until it is finally ready for signing.
Confirming the expectations of sena
tors on both sides of the treaty con
troversy, the letter was received only
as a formal closing of that chapter of
the fight which reached its climax a
week ago when Senator Borah, republi
can o Idaho, put Into the Congressional
Record a copy of the treaty brought to
this country by a newspaper corre

around the Knox resolution occupied
leaders most of the day while the sen
ate was working on appropriations.
Fature Actios la Doobt.
Senator Knox was uncertain tonight
whether he would attempt to bring the
subject technically before the senate
tomorrow, but he expects to spesk at
length In its favor regardless of the
parliamentary situation. The opposi
tion will be opened by Senator McCum
ber, republican of North Dakota, and
in the debate that will follow scores
of members expect to participate. The
discusion seems certain to last for
many days.
Beyond a determination to fight the
resolution at every stop, the plans of
league supporters is being left largely
to be formed by developments. They
disclaim any Intention to carry their
opposition to the point of a fillibuater.
but It is considered entirely probable
that there will be no rollcall until after
the treaty is signed.

Official Will Meet Shipping Board
in Hope of Securing Addition
al Coast Commerce.
Bound on a mission to the east, with
Washington, Philadelphia and New
York as the principal points on his
itinerary. Captain Jack Speier, harbor
master of the city of Portland, left
last night with the avowed purpose of
adding to the shipping of the port,
backed by the municipality and the
Chamber of Commerce.
On the eve of his departure he was
apprised of the serious illness of his
mother, whose home in at San Fran
cisco, so he proceeded there first. If
her condition does not interfere with
his immediate plans, he w.ill be in the
east shortly. Shipping interests have
considered for some time the advisa
bility of having a representative, versed
in maritime matters and competent to
explain local conditions, proceed to
the Atlantic side and personally meet
the men who are figuring on the coast-to-coast
services as well as Europe,
and the outcome was the selection of
Captain Speier.
He has successfully negotiated the
ordering of navy vessels to Portland
for several years as Rose Festival
attractions, and on the recent visit of
the congressional navy committee,
which investigated the Astoria naval
base site, he was the personal repre
sentative of the city, meeting the mem
bers at San Francisco and proceeding
here as well as to Puget sound with
them, the Puget sound journey being
made at the special request of the
delegation. There are matters relative
to the future governmental policy, as
well as shipping details, that Captain
Speier is expected to delve into.
Besides having been Portland's
harbormaster for more thai 10 years,
he was allowed leave last year to serve
as port captain for the shipping board
here, then was commissioned a captain
in the corps of engineers, U. S. A., it
being intended to send him abroad in
the transport service, so he was rated
admirably fitted to take up the re
sponsibilities of the eastern journey.
