Text from WarMn,
The Polish Legation in Washington
yesterday received a message
from Warsaw conveying the text of
a declaration issued by the government.
It affirms that?
"Poland has never waged a war
against the Russian people. Poland
does not desire in any way]
to annex foreign territories. On
the contrary, Poland believes that
friendly relations with the Russian
people form the essential basis for
the pacification of .Eastern Europe." i
The rest of the declaration is de-:
voted to armistice and peace ques-j
tions. and declares?
"The present victory of the Polish
army did not change the atti-l
tude of the government regarding
the question of peace. Endurable'
peace based on honor and justice1

that there cannot be any league, or

that calls attention to the limitations
of the Constitution?that calls
attention of other nations that we|
will go thus far and no farther.'*!
But the Republican reservation asj
to Article X does not interpret Article
X. It eliminates the obligation
of the United States to it.

figures, have a combined population
in round numbers of 25.000,000. At
'this rate of apportionment he said
the per capita base "would amount
to .*51 cents on every man. woman
and child in the fifty-one cities."
The governor referred to a dispatch
in the morning newspaper*
which, he said, carried "a statement
from Fred W. 1'pham. national
treasurer of the Republican com1

"less than a week ago" had ' said
that the fund would be three million
"In short, he continued. "Mr. Upham
has multiplied Mr. Hayes' figures
by two. From the evidence
which we shall submit T think you
will "gree with me that we are
justified in multiplying Mr. I'pham's
figures by two."
