President Wilson's address at the cele bration in Camp Emery last evening was as follo.vs: "I bid you a very cordial welcome to the Capital of the Nation; and yet I feel that it is not necessary to bid you wel come here because you know that the welcome is always warm and alvrays waiting for jou. One could not stand in this presence without many moving thoughts. It is a singular thing that men of a tingle generation should have wit nessed what you have witnessed in fhe crowded fifty years which you celebrate tonight. You took part when you were young men in a struggle the meaning of which I dare say ou thought would not be reealed during jour lifetime, and yet more has happened In the making of this nation in your lifetime than has ever happened in tho making of any other nation in the lifetime of a dozen generation. ""The nation in which you now live Is not the nation for whose union you fought. You have seen many things which have made this nation one of the representative nations of the world with regard to the modern spirit of that word. and ou have the satisfaction which I dare say few soldiers have ever had of looking back upon a war absolutely unique in this, that instead of destroying it healed, that instead of making a per manent division It made a permanent union. You have seen something more interesting than that, because there is a sense in which the things of the heart are more interesting than the things of the mind. This nation wus from the be ginning a spirited enterprise, and you hae seen the spirits of the two once divided sections of this country abso lutely united. A war which seemed as if It had the seed of every kind of bit terness in it has seen a single generation put bitterness absolutely out of its heart, and you feel, as I am sure the men who fought against you feel, that you were comrades even then, though ou did not know it. and that now you know that you are comrades in a common love for a. country which sou are equally eager to sei e. "This is a miracle of the spirit so far as national history is concerned. This is one of the very few wars In which in one sense everybody engaged may take pride. Some wars are to be regreted; some wars mar the annals of history; but some wars contrast ed with those make those annals dis tinguished, show that the spirit of man sometimes springs to great enter prises that are even greater than his own mind had conceived. "So it seems to me that, standing In p presence like this no man, wheth er he be in the public service or tn the ranks of private citizens merely, can fail to feel the challenge to his own heart, can fall to feel the chal lenge to a new consecration to the things that we all believe in. The thing that sinks deepest in my heart as I try to realize the memories that must be crowding upon you is this: You set the nation free for that great career of development, of unhampered development, which the world has wit- ....a i. ., iii war But for my own part I would not be proud of the extraordinary physical develop ment of this country, of Its extra ordinary development in material wealth and financial power, did I not believe that the people of the United States wished all of this power de voted to ideal ends. There have been other nations as rich as we: there have been other nations as powerful; there have been other nations as spirited; but I hope we shall never forget that we created this nation, not to sjve ourselves, but to serve mankind. "I love this country because It is my home, but every man loves his home. It docs not suffice that I should be attached to It because It contains the places and the persons Whom I love because It con tains the threads of my own life. That does not suffice for patriotic duty. I should also love It, and I hope I do love it, as a great Instrument for the uplift or mankind, and what you gentlemen have to remind us of as you look back through a lifetime to the great war In which you took part Is that you fought that this In strument, meant for he service of man kind, should not be Impaired either In Its material or in Its spiritual power.

CONSULAR SERVICE Charged With Showing Too Keen Par tisanship to Geimany Since Outbreak of War. Thomas St. John Gaffney. United States consul general at Munich, Germany, has been invited to resign from the consular service. This action was taken at the State De partment yesterday by direction of Presi dent Wilson. It Is the result of many complaints about Gaffney's partisanship In relation to tho war In Europe, and was expedited by recent publicity in Gaffney's case. Soon after the outbreak of the war complaints began to reach the State De partment that Consul General Gaffney was manifesting a partisanship for Ger many unbecoming to the representative of a neutral country. His attitude was regarded as the more reprehensible, how ever, from the fact that he was charged with the care of tho British consulate in .Munich. His intense anti-British ex pressions and actions, reported to the department, were a cause of some em barrassment to the United States gov ernment. PRESIDENT DROPS BALLOT.

The sensational charge that a group of bankers, headed by members of the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co., bartered with Great Britain, France, and Russia to negotiate a $1. 000.000.ono loan In return for war contracts netting them $100,000,000 profit. Is made by the executive commit tee of the "National Industrial ' Peace Conference" in a report Issued yester day. The Federal Reserve Board, for good measure, is charged wih acquies cing In the transaction. As a means of defeating the loan, de positors are beseeched by the committee to withdraw their money from national banks and rcdeposit it In State banks. Defeat of the loan Is declared to be imperative because, the committee's re port insists, the European governments, by piling up war debts, face inevitable bankruptcy, and bankruptcy threatens the Institutions in the Federal reserve system If practically their entire lend ing resources are tied up In loans to European governments. On this point the report Is exceedingly melodramatic. Fowler In Chnlrninn. The executive committee, of which for mer Rcpresentatie Robert Fowler, of Illinois, Is chairman, was appointed at the convention of the National Indus trial Peace Conference which was held In Washington July 21 last. The "repre sentatives" and "delegates" of the labor and agricultural societies at the confer ence represented 1,000,000 organized farm ers and 2,500,000 members of labor organi zations, the Fowler committee report dc- clares- Kcsponswmty ror Keeping the war alive . ........... ,. u.....u.uo ui i,. oit.ii criminal trusts. who are furnishing money and war supplies to belligerents. Clnlina Convincing: Proof. "The committee has absolutely convinc ing proof,"' the report says, "that a group of men now In control of the great trusts' conspiracies, headed by members of the firm of J. P. Morgan and Company, who are and have been for years past robbing the people of this country of several mil lions of dollars a day, are in possession of contracts for war materials and supplies of various kinds from the governments of Great Britain, Franco and Russia, on a scale so transcendently enormous as to guarantee to the contract-mongers a profit of more than $400,000,000, and that In return for these contracts and the pro fits flowing from them, the masters of the great trust' conspiracies have entered Into undertakings to obtain loans of money from the banks of the Federal reserve system for account of Great Brit ain and her allies, to the amount of, at least, Jl.SOO.000.000." These financial interests have already extracted from the banks in the Federal reserve system more than JoOO.OOO.OOO, tho report alleges, and are now making sedu lous efforts to secure immediately, at least, an equal additional amount. The Federal reserve board Is charged with be ing a party to the plan In the report, which says: "The Federal Reserve Board not only refuses to put a stop to these transac tions, but exhibits a willingness to al low tho entire money and credit resources of the banks in the Federal reserve sys tem to be used without limit In furnish ing money for use in buying munitions and supplies by which the European war is fed and kept alive." Morgan Dominance Charged. Morgan dominance of the Federal re serve board Is charged In the Fowler committee report. - "The Federal Reserve Board was de signed and organized by Congress for the express purpose of destroying the Morgan money trust power," it says. "Nevertheless, this same sinister power still exercises an effective control over the moneys and credit resources of the people, as embraced in the Federal re- servo systerg." Election of Benjamin Strong, jr., the then president of the Bankers' Trust Company, of Now York, "a' citadel of tho Morgan money." as governor of tho New York Federal Reserve Bank, was cited as an evidence of this. "That the Morgan money trust power completely dominates tho Federal re serve system today Is well evidenced by the fact that a man like Strong got to "be governor of a Federal reserve hank. holding one-half the total moneys of tho system." the report alleges.

The cutting down of the loan from 77,000.000 to SMO.000,000 was also Influenced In part by them, although many other financiers and bankers also urged this step when opposition to the issue developed. It is said the commission has received assurances of dozens of astonishingly large subscriptions from wealthy Indi viduals, some of whom either have, or asplro to have, high social standing In Europe.
