dent Taft traveled 400 miles through
Maryland and West Virginia by spe
cial train to appeal to the pcoplo of
tho United States .to use their moral
lnfluerfco to have tho senato ratify
the British and French arbitration
His appeal was mado direct to tho
Mountain Lake Park Chautauqua of
tho Methodist Episcopal church, but
In It tho president included tho rest
of tho nation as well.
"I observe," said the president, "that
there Is somo suggestion that by rati
fying this treaty, tho senato mny In
somo way abdicate Its function of
treaty making. I confess myself to
being uuablo to percolvo tho logic In
any such a point.
"To havo these treaties not ratified
by tho senato of the United States or
to havo any hesitation and discussion
of a serious character In respect to
them would halt the movement toward
general pcaco', which has mado sub
stantial advance In the last ton years.
To secure tho ratification of tho treat
ies therefore, appeal must bo mado to
tho moral senso of tho nation and
whilo that Ib not, entirely In tho keep
ing of tho churches, certainly they
may exert a poworful Influence In tho
promotion of any effective Instru
mentality to secure permanent peace."
Leaving tho nibltratlon treaties be
hind, tho president asked for tho same
sort of popular support of tho treaties
with Honduras and Nicaragua.
"There is no Issuo before tho sonato
so ncuto In respect to the cause of
peace as tho confirmation of these
Central Amorlcan treaties," said tho
presldont. "Whilo I admit tho greater
Importance of universal treaties of ar
