The Eugene Guard and a Southern
Oregon daily throw a lit and want
to know what those fellows expect
who are not in favor of the peace
treaty as drawn up. A perusal of
the press dispatches will Inform
them. There are loyal Amer
icans who want to be sure that the
.Monroe Doctrine is not knifed; who
don't want the Japs to steal Shan
tung from China; who want an even
break in voting iwith Great 'Britain
who want the right to withdraw
. from the league within a reasonable
time should such a theory not prove
practical, and who do not want Eu
rope to be given power to order the
Tanks to European battlefields
me president says there is no
danger of any ot those things, hut
other statesmen, equally as great, be
lieve there is such a danger and
want to safeguard the United States.
Is other words, they are 100 per
cent American. It all simmers down
to a difference of opinion as to the
interpretation of the articles con
tained in the league covenant. The
president may be right, but he has
.not always been right In the past.
Mr. Wilson says he has the great
est respect for congress, yet he and
that body are pulling further apart
each day stump speaking is indulged
Is. It is reasonable to expect that
the president's appeal to the people
will have little effect on the ratifica
tion or rejection of the treaty, for
the very good reason that people
have elected, by popular vote, a sen
ate to look after such business for
them. Congress is the government
of the United 6tates, the president
only its chief executive.' There is
ilittle consolation for those who have
lost all faith in our congress and
only look to a president in short
such people have lost. faith in hu
manity, and when that is gone there
i nothing left for them but bolshe
Tism. Both the president and the senate
ere displaying an aggravated case of
bull-headedness, but it was the chief
executive who started the rumpus,
by Ignoring congress and starting
out on a speaking tour to appeal to
the "common people."
The ipresldent says he Is not re
sponsible to anyone but "his fellow
countrymen," tout he muBt remem
ber that Ms "fellow countrymen"
have elected a congress to run their
government and are not in the right
mood to be chided for their Judg
ment in voting at the last election.
If the president will hurry fcack
to his duty and show a disposition
to slightly bend that Iron will of his,
and also show the'rlght spirit ot co
operation with the seriate, the trea
. ty will no doubt be ratified with
but minor changes. Let ns hope
that he will soon swing around the
