New York. March 4.?On the eve of his return to Paris. Presi dent Wilson told an audience of 5.000 persons in the Metropolitan Opera House tonight that he was convinced the majority of the people were in favor of the league of nations. The league, he asserted, is the only means of assuring permanent peace. It is meant, he said, as a notice to all outlaw nations that ? hey must not attempt any such enterprise as Germany had attempted. Critics of the covenant, he said, evidently had not observed tlic temper of the world or the temper of the boys in khaki. "Those boys," he said, "went over there with the feeling that they were sacredly bound to the realization of those ideals." ?.adirare In ?ysapathy. Tho president spoke In his usually carefully modulated tonet*, but now .-? n?l ?Uten, carried away by interest in his subject, raised his voice almost to a .shout as he emphasized some tell in*: point. He was frequently inter rupted by applause. The audience ? learly was in sympathy with him and with his plan for making war impos sible in future. His open.ag assertion. "I won't come back till Its over, over there," won the approval of his hearen and he was compelled try h-alt for more than a minute antfr the applause had sub sided. Throughout he spoke without refer ence to note.s or manuscript, making occasional references to the utterances of Mr. Ta?t who had preceded him. ?Ureat -.?plaase at ? lo?*e. There was deafening applause at the .onvlusiOn Oaf the speech when the .-'resident, speaking of the alms of the conference, said: "Go4 sive u? the strength and vi.^ion in do it -wisely. God cive us the priv ilege of knowmg that we did It with out counting the cost and because we wer? ti ue Americans, lovers of lib erty and of the right." There was no interuptions until the President h.id finished, when a voice from the body of the house called out : ?How about Ireland?" The interrupter was promptly bed by a distrusted exclamation of. 'Aw, shut up!" The suffragists who were supposed ? have obtained tickets did not make rheir presence known. While the President was speaking Mr*. Wilson and her secretary. Miss Kenham. sat in a box in the horse shoe, directly in front of the stage. ?Mag r ??p???G -*eng*. All walks of life were represented in the audience and all sections of the city. It was not a typical audi ence. The diamond horseshoe had not the same brilliant appearance that it has on the nights when the Metropolitana stars hold forth, but It was an attentive and enthusiastic audience. While awaiting the arrival of the President all hands Joined in the smging of patrioti?? songs and ap plauding as various distinguished personages arrived. The crowd got its first opportun ity to chefr when Go v. Smith and his staff walked on the stage. An other cheer followed when Gov. ?Smith and Ins predecessor, Charles & Whitman, arrived. Mayor Hylan also got a cher*r. There was a long wait with every one of the :. 00t> persons in the house -landing following the appearance of the national colors and the Presi dent's Tlag. The President's entry, accompanied by Mr. Taft and Governor Smith, was the signal for a demonstration lasting several minutes. Kb log y ef Tro??? r beere*. Governor Smith started the speak ing with a eulogy of the part played by the American soldiers, especially the New York troops, in winning the war. His address was punctuated by frequent applause. The President and his part ? left Washington at ?:?j, p. ra. amj ?topped at Philadelphia, where the President visited his new grandson. Woodrow Wilson Sayre. second son of Mrs. Francis P.

Taft I ".|?r?e. PU?. ?? Taft, who followed Governor Smith, endorsed the President's plan for a league of nations. He begun by telling of his own vain efforts to win the approval of ?he Senate for treaties of arbitra tion between this country and France. Those treaties." he said, "were masculnted by the Senate, yielding to the spirit which has manifested itself in the speeches on the pro posed covenant <??* Paris." Practicability of the proposed covenant was then explained by Mr. Taft. The boycott, he asserted, would be en effective weapon against any nation refusing to abide by decisions of the league. Military force, he said, would be the last re sort, but he predicted that resort to warfare would not be necesf-xry. Provisions of the penalising arti cle of the covenant, he said, formed in his opinion the nub of the plan. This article atro vides that a breach of the covenant by any nation is an act of war against every other na tion. The only protection against _ G?????G??? OS TAGE TWO. HOUSE FAVORS IRISH FREEDOM Gallagher Resolution Is Adopted, 216 to 41, After a Fight. The House yesterday went on rec ord in favor of self-determination for Ireland, 216 to 41. Adoption of the Gallagher resolu tion urging the Peace Conference in Paris to favorably consider the rights of the Irish people was the final important action taken before adjournment of the Sixty-fifth Con gress. The vote came at exactly one minute to 1 o'clock yesterday morn ing, after an all-night fight against I a Republican filibuster designed to prevent the resolution being called up. It also came as a fitting celebra tion of the 141st anniversary of the birth of Robert Kmmett. Irish patriot and martyr. Kill hast er Broken l>.

Representative Galltvan, of Mas sachusetts, warned the fliibusterers that they were "playing with dyna mite" in obstructing the resolution.

"Mr. Taft has set the picture for you of what a failure of this great purpose would me-an. We have been hearing for all these weary months that this agony of war has lasted of the sinister purpose of the Central Km piren, and wc heve made maps of the course that they meant their conquests to take. Where did the lines of that map lie, of that central line that we used to call from Bremen to Bagdad?

Intrigue cannot .-*tand publicity and If the league of nation? were nothing but a great debating society it would kill intrigue. It is one of the agreements of this covenant that it ia the fiiendly right of every nation a member of the league, to call attention to anything that it thinks will disturb the peace of the world, no matter where that thing is occurring?. (Ap plause). "There is no subject that may touch the peace of the world which is exempt from inquiry and discussion and I think every body here present will agree with me that Germany would never have gone to war If she had permitted tit e world to dis cuss the aggression upon Serbia for a single week.

"The British Foreign Office sug gested, it plead, that there mipht be a day or two delay so that the representatives of the nations of Kurope could get together nnd dis cuss possibilities of a settlement.

And therefore they ?say: There must be some tundamental cause for this, and thr fundamental cau.-*e they are beginning to perceive to be that nations have stood singly or in little Jealous groups against each other, fostering prejudice, increasing the dan ger of war, rather than concert ing measures to prevent it; and that if there is right in the world, if there is justice in the world, there is no reason why rations should be divided in the support of justice.
