POLICY IS LAUDED
Thousand Men Hear Secretary
Daniels at Banquet of Creve
Oour Club, Feoria.
IDEALS OF WASHINGTON
Speaker -Shows How Present Execu
tive Is Adhering to Principles
of Father of Country.
Peoria, Feb. 23. The policy of
watchful waiting in the Mexican situa
tion, on the part of President Wilson,
was applauded by nearly a thousand
boosters at the 16th annual Washing
ton day banquet of the Creve Couer
club at the big coliseum here Satur
day night. Secretary of the Navy
Josephus Daniels, as the chief speaker,
had specifically ?tt-ed that President
Wilson was remaining true to the
Ideals of Washington, in seeking to
perserve friendship with all nations
and avoiding entangling alliances witll
any in the Mexican policy.
It was an absolutely nonpartisan oc
casion,' democrats, republicans and
progressives being equally represented
among the banqueters, and the cheer
ing came as om volume from all parts
of the ball. The great building had
never opered its purtals'-to a more dis
tinguished gathering. Statesmen, cap
italists and politicians of high degree
journeyed here in private cars to re
spond in person to the club's invita
tion. The, club itself is nonpolitical, es
sentially commercial and social, and
plays no party favorites. The evening
had been on3 of ratrlotli son
addresses when Secretary Daniels
made his emphatic declaration for an
international progr-itn that would stifle
close to George Washington's well
known admonition to beware of foreign
alliances. On being introduced Secre
tary Daniels was cheered for five min-j
utes, the banqueters rising to tneir teet
and waving napkins and handkerchiefs,
while from the balconies that were
packed with ladles a like ovation
Colonization Is Opposed.
The s5re,i.ary fr&Lkly btated his
dislike of tin pr&sedure wlii'-li nought
us the Philippines and claimed that
each Filipino had cost Uncle , Sam "so
much per head."
On this subject the speaker said:
"Let -us apply the question of what
Washington would think of it to the
problems of our day: For example,
what would' be his attitude toward the
policy inaugurated during the last de
cade in changing the spirit of American
institutions by purchasing colonies, and
by the payment of so much per head
for a whole people then engaged in a
struggle for independence? Can any
one suppose, in view of Waehington'a-I
admonition to his co mtry to beware
of entangling alliances, that he would
retain sovereignty and govern people
against their will? Would not Wash
ington recognize that a chain is no
stronger than its weakest link? And
that the Philippina Islands are
the weakest link in our chain?
The cabinet member's observation
regarding Mexico, which was given
special significance by his hearers
were worded as follows:
"Recently, the eyes of our country
have been upon Mexico, with whom we
have had pleasant relations for many
years. We are knit to our sister re
public by many ties. There have been
those in our country who have crii
cised the policy pursued by Mr. Taft,
and later by Mr. Wilson, and declared
jit to be our duty .to go into Mexico.
What Would Washington Do?
"What would Washington have done?
It is easy to ascertain. He insisted we
should maintain friendly relations with
all nations, and entangling alliances
with none, more than be insisted upon
anything else. This, together with a
spirit of justice and amity, were the
guiding stars of his public life.
"Does anyone suppose that one
whose patriotism was so unselfish
would countenance any action looking
to colonialism, or taking advantage of
a neighbor's internal troubles? Would
he not rather, say that it was not for
us to interfere, unless naticnal honor

retary Daniels in conclusion, "has been

President Wilson had heeded the-'ad

spirit received the approval of the

"In the spirit of Washington, Wil3on
entered upon his duties a year a5,"
taid Daniels. "As the leader of hle
party he summoned the membersf
that party to labor with him in
deeming its pledges, but he did feo't
stop there. He called upon others f&r
consel and cooptration. Washingfort;
in his farewell address, warned
