The republican peace resolution, ve

muster sufficient strength in congress
to pass it over the veto, ,i a two
pronged measure, olumsq in its moans
o fending the state of war existing be
tween this country and Germany, but
treaty and the league of nations.
Mr. Taft arrived in Salem this morn
ing and immediately retired to his
room in the hotel to rest and attend
to matters of private business. It was
here that ' he granted interviews to
representatives of the press.
The peace resolution Mr. Taft point
ed out, even if approved by the presi
dent or passed over his veto by the
senate, could not have become oper
ative as a treaty with Germany (as a
substitute for- the Versailles treaty)
ending the Btate of war between the
United States and that nation, without
its formal acceptance by Germany.
Domestically, however, it would have
become operative In ending by legis
lative decree the broad war powers
now in the hands of the president.
Mr. Taft places the blame for the
failure of this country to accept the
Without commenting on the un
yielding position of the republican op
position to the treaty as presented by
the president, Mr. Taft eald that Presi
dent Wilson's letter to the administra
tion senators last November, urging
themto stand at In their demand for
the league un-revised, was the princi
pal caue for the rejection of the trety
by the senate. Pointing out that the
treaty then failed of ratification (with
reservations) by a margin of only
seven botes, he holds that the Wilson
letter was the means of .withholding
those necessary seven votes
Asked point-blank if he favored the
league with the reservations proposed
by the republicans, Mr. Taft replied
that in his estimation, th ereservations
would not hinder the successful opera
tion of the league, nor would they ma
terially weaken It. From this general
statement he exempted artlcl 10, say
ing that he would rather see that sec
tion remain imtouchd. , ,
Mr. Taft appears much the same as
upon his former visits to Salem. Tne
train of his long speaking tour makes
Itself evident at times' through the
momentary appearance of an expres
sion of exhaustion on his face, but his
famous smile" still has Its ever-ready
propensities and his deep gutteral
chuckle continues to win sympathetic
smiles from those who come In touch
with him. '
This morning Mr. Taft was looking
forward with pleasant anticipations to
an automobile trip over the Columbia
river highway from Portland to Hood
River, Sunday morning.
"It always does me good to get, bat
