The former president was given an enthusiastic reception. After discussing the proposed cove nants of th league of nations. Mr. Taft deplored opposition to the 'plan as expressed by members of the I'nited States senate, and urged his hearers to use all possible means to obtain the league's ratification by the senate. He declared the plan was essentially a non-partisan measure and arraigned those whom he charged with attempt ing to make, it a political issue. "This treaty will be tendered to the senate for its advice and consent by a democratic president." said Mr. Tafl, "and if it be a treaty that ought to be confirmed that is certainly no reason why a tjpublYan should vote against it. "The slightest suggestion that it ought to be opposed by republicans. because It will insure greatly to the credit of the president, is such an un worthy ond mean one that it may be dismissed without consideration.
