MORROW SHOWS HIMSELFUBERAL Naval Conference Envoy Is Revealed as Keen Judge of Men. BY WILLIAM HARD. Mr. Dwight W. Morrow, Ambassador Mexico, delegate to the London Naval •onference and prospective Senator ~om New Jersey, made a remarkable jeech yesterday to the Washington rwspaper organization called “Overseas ’Vriters.” but, since the rules of “Over "as Writers" forbid the printing or re lating of anything said by anybody • ho addresses the club, the reporting f Mr. Morrow's speech of yesterday be omes quite a problem. This writer has decided to solve this roblem by reporting a few things that Ir. Morrow did not say to “Overseas i riters," but that this writer has heard im say on previous and other occa ons. By this method some light will ? shed anyhow on Mr. Morrow's char ter and disposition as a public man i the numerous capacities to which he as attained. To begin with, it remains an aston hment that this New York lawyer and inker continues to be so completely a beral and so completely a believer in holly popular government. Mr. Mor >w, in praise of the American states lan, John Adams, long ago said: “For the divine right to rule, whether ! aimed by King or Parliament or party, i :>hn Adams substituted the divine, in- i right of the people to grow.’’ | There is barely a doubt that Mr. farrow in the Senate will classify as a j beral. Just as clearly as Mr. Grundy f Pennsylvania will classify as a con- j ’rvative. Will Favor Deliberation. It seems further quite certain that | Ir. Morrow in the Senate will not be ] imong those demanding changes in enatorial procedure for the purpose of nacting legislation without debate.

From this prece dent it may be safely calculated that Mr. Morrow will turn out to be a rather old-fashioned American Senator in the direction of wanting complete senatorial deliberation before putting legislative ideas into the statute books. Further, as a delegate to the Lon don conference. Mr. Morrow, it may be safely anticipated, will go in very heav ily for personal persuasion and not so heavily for wTitten argument. This writer recollects that, when Mr. Mor row was about to depart for the first time to Mexico City, he remarked to a friend: “I never met a Latin American law yer who, in written argument, couldn’t argue himself all around me or anv other lawyer from north of the Rio Grande. When I get to Mexico I’m going in for personal conferences and not for notes.” Keen Judge of Men. That certainly showed a keen judg ment of the qualities of the people with whom Mr. Morrow was going to nego tiate and some hard common sense about how to avoid getting promptly licked by them.
