Dallas, Ore., Sept. 14. (To the
Editor), In The Oregonian you
have this to say in criticism, ot Pres
ident Wilson's treatment of the Unit
ed States senate: "Let us sympathize
with Senator Johnson and Senator
Borah in the exhibition they male
ot their sore spots to the American
ptople eore spots inflicted by Pres
ident Wilson in his contemptuous
and foolish treatment of the United
Now, will The Oregonian kindly
I inform an inqoisitlTe public, which
i baa neither the time nor opportun
f Ity to get the information itself, in
S. what manner former president
.4 treated the United States senate
- " when negotiating important interna
ls tlonal treaties. Were the members
' of the United States senate consult
$ ed, or any of them appointed as dele-
gates to negotiate such treaties?
IS J. T. FORD.
This question was answered by
The Oregonian in an editorial pub
lished February 2, 1919. tirt as It
frequently recurs it is not amiss
again to recite some historical inci
dents. In 1833 the senate adopted a reso
lution requesting President Jackson
to consider the expediency of open
ing ' negotiations authorizing the
construction of a canal through the
isthmus of Panama. President Jack
son complied by sending an agent to
Central America whose' report was
A convention in regard to the Ore
gon boundary, which had been sub
mitted by the British prime minis
ter, together with a protocol of the
proceedings, was sent to the senate
by President Polk in 1846 with a re
. quest for advice as to what action he
should take. .
Polk a&ain In 1846 consulted the
eenate as to entering on peace ne
gotiations with Mexico.
President Buchanan in 1861 asked
the senate if it would approve a trea
ty of arbitration in regard to a dis
puted point in the Ashburton-Webs-ter
President Lincoln resubmitted the
same' question to the senate and
asked its advice.
President Grant In 1872 asked for
"an expression by the senate of their
disposition" In regord to a proposed
article which the British govern
ment had submitted for the settle
ment of dllftrences of opinion con
cerning the treaty of Washington.
President Cleveland, In 1888, was
- asked by the senate to open nego
tiations writh China for a treaty to
regulate immigration, and be replied
that such negotiations had been un
dertaken. The treaty most nearly" analagous
to the one pending and concluded in
recent years was the peace treaty
with Spain in 1898. President Mc-
Klnley recognized the senate by ap
polntlng Senator Cushman K. Davis,
Senator William P. Frye and Senator
George Gray as three of the five
cnembers of the commission.
The Pacific Record Herald, the
new paper that has been started at
Ashland and will, perhaps, later be
moved to Medford, appears to have a
special mission in championing the
cause of those -who do not believe In
irrigation for the iRogue river valley.

The Pacific Herald even goes so
strong as to advocate capital punish
ment for those who launch llligltl
mate enterprises or instance those
who start forming irrigation dis
tricts where they are uot necessarily
needed. If It is the aim ot the Her
ald to fight Irrigation In the Rogue
river valley, it will not make a very
big bit with the people in Southern
Oregon. There are a few spots of
sub-irrigated land in this part ot the
state that do not need irrigation
but such spots are few and far be
Said President Wilson at San
Francisco, In delivering his address
on the league of nations: "The men
who do not look forward now are of
no further service to the country."
Wonder if that rule held 'good back
in 3914. when Roosevelt and others
were pleading with the president to
prepare to defend our rights. At that
time Mr. Wilson could not see anv
great distance ahead and said it was
"a war that did not concern us."
There were others that could see
that it was a menace that would and
did concern us.

26. (Correspondence of the Associ
ated Press). Premier Clemenceau
arrived here the other day In search
of peace and quietness. The premier
looked as if he needed rest and there
was nothing suggestive of the "Ti
ger" as he descended from the dusty
automobile which had borne him
from Paris to the sea. He appeared
old and wan and tired and heaved
a slh of relief as he sat on an old
wooden bench In the shady garden
of the villa Philippon, wiped the
perspiration from his brow and en
joyed the ocean breeze.
The premier doe.s not like public
functions and probably the only one
of the past few months, excepting
those of the relrievenient of Alsace
Lorraine, at which he did not ap
pear bored was the Victory Day pa
rade. He has lost none of his good
humor, however, and when asked
how he had enjoyed the trip from
the capital, replied:
"Somewhat tiresome lint the coun

visited several chateaux on the
Loire. I should have enjoyed great
