The persistence of President Wilson in
his determination to sec that the De
cember elections of a constituent As
fcfmbly are "fair and free," even In the
face of hostile attitude on the part of the
Dominican (lovernmcnt, was announced
oniclally this afternoon.
Secretary llryan made public pait of
n telegram of Instructions sent yesteiclay
to Minister Sullivan at Santo Domingo
city setting forth the reasons for the
despatch of the election "observers."
The announcement by Mr, llryan came
shortly after the visit of Senor Peynado,
the Dominican Minister, at the State De
partment. The Minister called to supple
ment his previous verbal protest against
.he plun, with a written communication
from the Dominican (lovcrnment to the
mme effect.
In protesting against the plan of "ob
beivlng," tho Dominican Government
understood precisely what was Intended
und did not labor under any delusions
jesultlng fiom a confusion of the terms
"upervlslou" mid "observation."
Kern Interest In Outcome,
Because of the hostility of the Domini
can Government to the Stute Depart
ment's plan, the outcome of the action
of the Administration Is awaited with
extraordinary Interest,
It is believed hero that the step In
Santo Domingo Is only the first attempt
of the Wilson Administration to make
practically effective Its championship of
e constitutional government In Latin Amer
ica. There Is a general conviction that the
action in the present situation will prove
to be an enterliu; wedge for even mora
advanced courses In other lntln American
countries where, similar conditions pre.
vail, provided of course that out of the
Dominican situation the 1'nlted States
does not get a sharp rebuff.
Secretary Hryan's statement of the Ail
ministration's intrude I action as contained
In purt of the Instructions sent to Min
ister bulllvan Is aa follows:
'Tie use my to President Itordns that
the President has planned to send u num
ber of Americans to visit the principal
polling places on election day, not as u
'commission' for which this Government
links any official recognition but only as

afterward. Mr. Whitman was equally un

of McGulre's trial was taken up.
After his arraignment Mr. McGulre was
asked to say something In addition to the
account of bis travels which he gave to
the newspapers on Sunday, especially on
the matter nf soliciting campaign con
tributions from corporations. He said;
"As a member of financial and execu

I have collected for the Democratic party
more than J.mo.onn. And with all that
experience few men In tho country would
know better than I not to go to a corpora

lic his belief that through the recent In
dictment of certain high ofllclals of tn
t'nlted Mine Workers of America by a
Federal Grand Jury at Pueblo, Col., Ids
action In signing' the last sundry civil

The President was criticised because
the bill contained a special provision
whereby an Inhibition was placed upon

of any of the 1300,000 appropriated for
tho enforcement of the Sherman luw in

incnt of special counsel against labor j
