WITH LETTERS ABOUT
Majority Of People Writing
fo Washagtoa, Favor
I WcrM Constitution.
By I O. Martin
(United Press staff correspondent)
Washington, Mar. 10. The Ameri
can people are responding eagerly to
President Wilson 'b invitation to dis
cuss the lcaguo of nations.
While, oontrovorsicg over war poli
cies drew a tremendous number of let
ters, nothing in the momory of men
now in .congress equalled the present
avalanche of mail at their offices
Senators havon't born able to head
half the letters addressed to them on
the subject, they aid today. But what
letters have been read show one thing
clearly fhat the coun:ry realizes the
vast importance of the questi'va
Four Classes Received .
Forty seven hundred lottcs chosen
from tho files of 18 senators, -eprescnt-ing
every section of the country and
both political parties, readily asserted
themsolves in four classes.
First, those unqualifiedly for the
league, as now proposed, IGl'B.
- Second, thoso for the loague, mm
qualifications, 1210. . -
Third, thoso expressing no opinion,
but asking infoimalion, 204.
Fourth, thosi unqualifiedly against
the league in its present form, 1508.
More than half the letters in the
first class camo from professional and
business anon, clergymen, scholars edu
cators, lawyers, writers nven and wo
men alike and many big business men
apparently approve very hrnrtity of
the draft of tin league constitution as
it now stands. The rest of the letters
in tho first class based their approval
on faith in President Wilson. It may
be significant that most of tho letters
in class one camo from the cast, New
England ami he south.
Came from West-
The vast bulk of the othor three class
cs came from the middle and far west.
Through tho "clas two" letters ran
the si rain "wo want an cud to war
but. " and tho writore then express
ed in various ways their fears that the
proposed league, would, enmesh tho
United Slates too deeply in foreign af
feirs. Tho Monroe doctrine, American
sovereignty and all tho other objec
tions already urged were coverpd in
these letters. Many of them complain
ed that president Wilson's attitudo is
that of a man assuming superior wis
dom and unwilling to come down to
eases in giving reasons for various
Toachcrs S-'eS Information
Class three, the smallest, camo large
ly from .school teachers and women
generally. Men apparently hi.ve made
up their minds rather thoroughly on
the league. Tho information asked was
chiefly along tho lines of the objections
raised against the league in the sen
ate. Class four contained sonw bitter let
tors. In them President Wilson was
vigorously assailed, senators criticis
ing. the leaguo wero applauded, and in
& number more or less thinly veiled
threats wero made aigainst tho govern
ment if tho leaguo compact is ratified.
Most of tho letters of this class, how
ever, struck tho hiuio note that ran
through all tho others "let us pre
vent war forever."
Scores of tho letters offered substi
tutc.g for tho proposed league, ranging
from a pulley of complete American
isolation, maintained by force, if nec
e.;;;ary, to a policy of diplomacy, the
chief feature of which -would bo keep
ing European nations constantly . in
rows with one another so this country
would ibe let alone.

London, March 10., The riot in tho
Strand yesterday resulted primarily
from London civil policemen attacking
American military policemen, according
to information obtained today.
When the civil officors arrested two
Americans near the Y. M. C. A. Eagle
hut on a charge of gambling and started
for Bow Street jail, several military po.
licomen followed and asked that the
prisoners be turned over to them for
military trial, it was said, An argu
ment resulted which turned into a fight.
Tho military policemo were clubbed aud
placed under arrest.
News Spread to Hut.
' The news spread to the hut. Several
hundred American, soldiers and sailors,
together with a few Canadians and
Australian soldiers, started for the jail.
Police reserves charged into their midst
swinging clubs. A free 'for all fight
e .sued in which four American soldiers
and sailors were severely injured, and
five policemen and several score Ameri
cans and Canadians were slightly hurt.
Mounted policemen wore called out
but the fighting continued for two
hours. Order was finally restored by
the intervention of additipnal military
policemon, who presuaded the soldiers
and sailors the disperse Abeut fifteen
Americans who had been arrested were
later turned over to the Americcn au
thorities. The Americans were greatly incensed,
charging the London poliecmen were
over hasty in using thoir clubs against
military policemen, who reaiiy were try
ing to quiet tho disturbances. The civ
il authorities make the counter charge
that the Americans were attempting to
storm the jail. Army, navy and police
officials were cooperating in an invse
tigation. At Canadian headquarters it was de
nied that Canadian soldiers had parti
cipated in the riot.

in complete overthrow of the cabinet
and turning the country over to control
of the soviots. This sentiment, was be
