attitude, as expressed in h\\ letter lust

Anarchy and Death From
Starvation Threaten Na?

Delegate Tells Americans
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 (By The
Assoc ated Press).?An appeal to the
American people to ex:end aid to
7,000.000 Austrian8 threatened with
anarchy and death by starvation dur?
ing the winter has been forwarded to
Washington by Baron Eichoff, head of
the Austrian peace delegation.
"By the end of the present month
'be Austrian people will perish by cold
and starvation " the appeal says. This
is a fact nobody calls into question.
"It h"S been established h'1 ihn

has become especially critical, as the
European powers have d.cK.ra.i t..ey
cannot grant those credits and .hat
Ameren coure ation offers the only
chance for saving Austria.
"It is. therefore, the sacred duty of
he Austrian peopie to address a mos
urgent appeal for help to the whole
iiopu ation of the United Slates. We j
ught to point out to ev ry man and |
'o every woman in the United St tor. i
?hat they alone can save our peopl i !
md that by refusing their aid they |
vould abandon seven million hum in

"We beg to point out to the Unite-l

World's Greatest Radio
Station at Bordeaux, Begun
Two Years Airo, To Be Turned
| Over to Franee
BORDEAUX, Jan. 9.?Construction
i work on the ginnt La Fayette radio
' station being built here by the Amer
? ?can navy is finished and installation
lof the electrical equipment will be
I -orip'eted next spring, it is announced.
i This will be the I.\rgest and most
i powerful wireless station in the world,
'according to naval authorities.
Construction of the plant began
about two years ago, when it was be?
lieved that the war might continue
j for a long time and when the necessity
j of ample communication facilities be
j tween th'j Urited States and the Amer
: ican forces in France was clearly evi
j dent.
hen the armistice was signed the
? French government asked the Unitec
| States Navy to complete the station
because the navy was familiar with th?
I p'ans and had a force of experience?
| workmen on the spat. The Frencl
goverrm -nt. however, agreed to mee
i the entire cost o ' construction and ti
j take over the plant when completed.
The aerials oi' the station ar?; swum
j np n eight steel towers, each abou
j 900 feet hi"h, almost equaling in alti
I t i '. the f "rinns Eiffel Tower in Pari?
It is expected that the station wi!
| be o. such power that any nmateur o
I p.o essior.al station in the world, re
gardless of static conditions, will b
able to pick up its transmission. Th
el?ctrica1 installation is entirely mot

that the French government is guar?

Party Counsels
Confused by
Bryan's Action
Continued from pmat 1
and the opinron at that time, coming
from the source It did, was taken as
Senator Walsh, of Massachusetts, and
ex-Senator James A. O'Gorman, of New
York, conferred late to-day, and while
they declined to comment afterward it
is understood that they went over the
Democratic situation in their states,
in both of which the Irish vote con?
stitutes a tremendous percentage of
their strength. In view of the Presi?
dent's wish to make the treaty the
issue and in view of the bitter opposi
ion to the treaty of the Irish voters,
it is understood Democratic politicians
?rom many of the Eastern and New
England states are tremendously dis?
Situation Annoys Senators
Democratic Senators are more dis?
turbed over the peace treaty as the ?
issue in the campaign than the national i
committeeman or officeholder? who np- i
plauded so vigorously at both dinners
when the President's announcement
was read. Every Democratic Senator
in his speech, all prepared before they ;
knew the contents of the President's ?
letter, with the exception of Mr. Un?
derwood, who spoke extemporaneously, ?
:-howed clearly that he hoped the
treaty would be speedily ratified and
Tot out of the way as a political
issue. The Senators took that posi?
tion to-day despite the obvious fact
hat the . ackson Day dinner made the
task of reaching a compromise on the ,
peace treaty more difficult.
The Senators realize better than
heir co-party workers some of the
difficulties of the campaign if the ?
peace treaty is to be the paramount
ssue. Senator James A. Reed, of Mis- \
nouri, for instance, would, his friends
leclared to-day, unquestionably bolt
ihe party. Reed has a great personal
'"ollcwing In Missouri, which has been
getting closer and closer, until a Re
puohcan Senator was e.ected in 1918.
i'he chances for carrying Missouri
vith the lea^u? as an issue would be
highly favorable to the Republicans.
Oklahoma Also in Danger
Oklahoma is another state apt to go
Republican, it is declared,- if the rati- ,
fication of the peace treaty without I
reservations is the isa e Sector !
' Gore would bo against the President
! on that issue, and the tempe: ? ne
) peop.e of one Congressional District
? . .. dy has been demonstrated in a
?.pecial election to be against the ?
In Tennessee Senator Shields cou'd
scarcely support a candidate for Presi?
dent committed, to ratification without
reservations, nor could Senator Tram
me in Florida, nor Senator Hoke
Smith in Georgia. Florida and Georgia j
"c so overwh'j mifig Democratic that
his might not make any difference,
but Colorudc is one of the states the
Democrats must have, and Senator
Thomas, who comes up for reelection
this time, voted against the ratification
of the treaty at all. He would vote
i for it neither with nor without reser
I vations. Colorado is uncomfortably
j close, having gone Republican in 1918.
| Democrats from that part of the coun
ry say that probably no Democrat
lave Thimus wou'd have a chance, and
a factional ficht, if there is one, might
ruin Thomas' chances.
Wilson Candidacy Doubted
The Democrats do not seem to take
| the President's desire to have the
; treaty the issue in the campaign as an
indication that he will run himself.
I They still expect there will be an an
I nouncement some time soon, or else
I he "ord w 1 be s ij-p^d down that
j he will not be a candidate. Some of
j the Demorcrats interpret Tumulty's
; backing of Attorne General Mitchell
' Palmer as signifying that the Presi
j dent will not run and that he is
for Palmer.
At any rate, Palmer is the bene?
factor under the present official si?
lence, and the fear of Bryan domination
is driving the Democrats behind the
Pennsylvanian. His speech, made at
1 both dinners and at a luncheon yes
-rday, ???ius?d much favorable, com?
ment, and the Palmer men asserted
that he had walked away with the

Wilson-Bryan Treaty Split
Discussed in Party Press
Commoner Moved by "Spirit of Peace at Any
Price," Says "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" ; "Logic
in View," Avers "Richmond Times-Dispatch"
Editorial comment by representative Democratic newspaper? in the
leading cities of the country on President Wilson's proposal that .the
ratification of the peace treaty be made a campa'gn issue this year, and
the conflicting demand of William Jennings Bryan that a compromise be
made to assure ratification follows:
St. Louis Post Dispatch
We do not indorse Mr. Bryan's atti?
tude of unlimited compromiso. He i~
moved in this by the dastard spirit of
peace at any price which moved him
o condone all the crimes of Germany
in order to keep a* out of war. Th-.
issue of the treaty and the covenant ?6
too important to be shirked. We
agree with Mr. Bryan that the trea.y
ought to be ratified at once and tha )
it would be a calamity to delay it unti' i
the next election forces the issue be- ;
fore the people, but we agree with M.\ ?
Wilson that this must be done unlesB ?
the treaty is ratified in a form accept-?
able to other signatory nations and \t \
accord with the highest standard o? \
honor and fidelity to our own ideals '
and obligations as a participant in the
war and in the peace covenant to end
secret selfish diplomacy and aggressive
wars. The i?sue must go to the people.
There is no other way out.

This is not the Bryan who swayed

This is the Bryan who split with the
President on the issue of upholding
American rights contested by Germany,
and of easting our lot irrevocably with
the cause of humanity, and who de?

critical juncture because he cou'd not

New York World
With due respect to President Wil?
son and to Senator Lodge, who seem
to have an infini'e capacity fo
getting on each other's nerves, both of
them are talking nonsense, and ve y
dangerous nonsense at such a time as
this. There is no way in whic th
differences between the President and
the Senate majority can be submitted
to a re'erendum next fall. How are the
American people at the polls going to
differentiate between reservations
which aiter the meaning of the treaty
and interpretations which do not alter
the meaning of the treaty 7 The Presi?
dent and uenator Lodge canrtot even
agree on that question and there is
no unanimity of opinion on either side.
Richmond (Va.) Timea-Dipatch
Bryan's attitude on the treaty may
| be termed one of surrender to the in
j evitable, but there is sound logic in his
I views, perhaps as sound a? in tho?e of
I the great men with whom he dirt ts
; Tie issue is clear cut between absolute
I unyielding prineip es an ideal not to
i be surrendered to jxpodiency, and '.ie
| of national and party policy. That
! issue may have to be decided one way
i 'or the other in the naming of the
! party's candidate for the Presidency.
It will not await the polls. It can be
! delayed no longer than convention dsy.
I Bryan may not be even a potential can
I didate for the Presidential nomination.
! bur there is a ring; to hi* address, a
keynote quality, a hint of platform mak?
ing, that will lead to a conviction that
I he stili aspires if not to White House
i occupancy at least to a resumption of
1 party leadership, and with public sen
| timent so nicely balanced between a de
; sire to support the President in his
struggle for a national and interna

Baltimore Sun
When the Senatorial deadlock be
i comes unquestionab'y unbreakable, or
when the President refus?s to proclaim
a treaty which has been ratified by the
S?nate then it wi 1 be time to talk o.
a referendum. In either of these
events a referendum might very read?
ily be desirable. But the question
i shou'd be submitted to tve people at a
special election; it hou d n't be mixed
up with the Presidential campaign and
the various questions that will enter
that campaign and the election should
be h"ld as quickly as possib e after it
! has been determined t at no compro?
mise is possible or the rejection by
