ST. LOUIS, Sept. 6. Crowds
which cheered, waved flags and
struggled to break through the po
lice lines and swarm about his au
tomobile, greeted President Wilson
here today. The tremendous shouts
of welcome were continuous all the
way from the outskirts of the city,
where the presidential special stop
ped, to the hotel whore President
and Mrs. Wilson went for a short
rest before making his speech at
the Chamber of Commerce lunch
eon. The president smiled continually
as he flourished his bat In response,
sometimes standing up in the auto
mobile to bow bis appreciation.
In addition to the people on the
sidewalks along the route every
window was filled and many were on
the roofs. An automobile bearing
a huge placard demanding the lift
ing of the wartime prohibition ban
dodged down the side streets and
confronted the president at a num
ber, of points. It was tilled with
women, shrilly cheering, and wav
ing banners.
Several women dodged the police
and ran alongside the president's
machine to get snapshots of Mrs
Wilson, begging her to "look this
itay please."
The reception at St. Louis was
the most enthusiastic received since
the president left Washington.
Wilson was greeted with hand
clapping, shouts and ear piercing
rebel yells, which lasted several
minutes when he entered the dining
room of the hotel, which was jammed
to the windows.
Rising to speak, he was greeted
with three cheers for "the benefac
tor of the world." .
The president declared that party
politics has no place in the treaty
discussions and that he was glad
to hear the chairman say, "Politics
is adjourned." He said criticism of
the treaty was directed at mere de
tails. Incidents of the "great human
"The central object of the treaty
is to establish the Independence and
protect the Integrity of the weak
peoples of the world. I hear some
gentlemen who are themselves In
capable of altruistic purposes say
'ah, but that Is altruistic. It is
not our business to take care of the
weak nations of the world.'
"No, but It is our business to pre
vent war and It we do not take care
of the week nations of the world,
there will be war."
"Almost contemptible quitters,"
Is the epithet President Wilson ap
plied to those refusing to go
through with the American program
to end all wars, which the president
believes can be accomplished by
means of the League of Nations.
. He bitterly denounced those who
seek to prevent the United States
from Joining the league.
Discussing t'ne men who declare
that the United States should not
go to war to "protect every little na
tion In the world," the president
said, "Let them show me how they

regard" of the government
He referred to the president's dec
laration that the international labor
conference provided for by the peace
treaty would be held In Washington
whether or not the senate ratified
the peace treaty.
"Have the American people quit
electing presidents and begun to elect
kings?" he asked, adding, "Public
officials have been Impeached for
less flagrant - violation of the laws
of their country than this."
"This paragraph of the president's
address is 100 per cent demagogi
cal," declared Senator Sherman. "It
is an appeal to lawlessness, a co
vert invitation to the ever present
restless and dissatisfied element k
demand what they will. The presi
dent has already played with fire
brands sufficiently to know the dan
ger," he concluded.

of resale, or manufacture, no mutter

engaged in such operations must
have license. Also, the handling
