he Is a "self-made num." Intimate as
sociates suy that beouuso he made his
own way In tho world and accumulated
a fortune while still a young man his
views of life ari! sound and sane. He
has deep sympathy for the toiling
clauses. having heen u wago-otirnor
himself, hut he lielieves that those who
earn and save should Is? safe In their
posM'ssions, knowing from experience
that the disir of opportunity Is open to
every mull who 1ms patience, industry

pursuits. The dream of his young

GENEVA, Dec. 1. The council of the league of nations is draft
ing a letter to President Wilson accepting hisj of f er -lo act as
mediator for Armenia. Wilson's note was received this morning and)
read lo members of the council at 10:30 o'clock. It was received with
the liveliest satisfaction.
It was announced this afternoon that Spain and Brazil had of
fered to join President Wilson in the role of Armenian mediators.
President Wilson's acceptance created a great impression when
it wt.8 announced. "Poor old Europe will feel less abandoned," was
the remark a member of tho French delegation made. The news
pave the assembly great relief as the Armenion question had be-s
come the "bugbear" of the assembly.
There wns much speculation as to
what form the mediation with Armenia
would take. A. .1. I !a I four, lender of tho
Itrltlsh delegation, remarked that In or
der to negotiate anything, it will Is- nec
essary to offer Mustapha Kemal. leader
pf the Turkish nationalists, something,
either money or territory. The remark
i ailed Wilson's known opposition to
tile disposition made of some parts of
the Turkish territory.
Lord Kobert Cecil characterized the
American President's acceptance a "big
,step towarrt the solution of one of the
inoKt serious problems before the assem
bly." lie added: "Mr. Wilson's accept
ance Is i onimeiidiible and worth N-st
traditions of the fulled States, which
nlwa.'.'h has been the filelid of Armenia
and taken the lend In alleviating her
sufferings. The decision of President
W ilson is not In any sense, from my
point of view, political and cannot give
enoiilll unci lent to all those w ho w ish to
sec the I i.;ied States In tin- League. If.
simply ! a natural development of the
old humanitarian policy.''
