Naval Conference Envoy Is
Revealed as Keen Judge
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
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
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. On
he contrary, Mr. Morrow during the
.eague of Nations debate in the Sen

ate was one of the few pro-League
Americans to stand up and say that the
subject was an enormously compli
cated and difficult one and that the
Senate ought to take its full time to
debate it thoroughly. 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
“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. At London the British,
