Repre sentatives of the Washington State Federation of Labor heretoday laid be fore President Wilson labor grievances for the Pacific Northwest and pic tured to him existing labor unrest which they said would make difficult, if not impossible, the prevention of a nation-wide strike October 8 in sympa thy with Thomas J. Mooney, sentenced to life imprisonment for San Francisco 1'omb outrages in 1916. Specifically, the delegation asked for an appointment to see the president to present the cases of "political prison ers." notably those of Hulet M, Mells, Sam Sadler and Morris and Joe Pass, ail serving terms of two years for se ditious conspiracy. The delegation was composed of L. W. Buck, acting president of the state federation; G. R. Cottrell, secretary of the triple alliance, composed of rail way men, laborers and farmers, and James A. Duncan, secretary of the central labor council of Seattle. Mr. Duncan, according to officials of th United States district attorney's office, was one of the leaders in a general strike here last February, which former Mayor Ole Hanson character ized as a "revolution."

Mr. Buck, who acted as spokesman, in presenting the cases of what he termed the four "political prisoners," charged that the government was prosecuting these while it failed (o prosecute profiteers. The president told the delegation it was all right for them to have griev ances, but that he wanted to know what remedy they had to suggest. President Wilson would not make a statement concerning the conference, but .Secretary Tumulty epitomized what went on. Mombers of the delegation likewise declined to talk, out of courtesy to the president. Mr. Buck said they wanted to give the president an op portunity to disclose what took place, but that, if he did not do so, labor men would Issue a statement, r Local police today reported a group of men last night stood outside the arena while the president was speaking inside, pounded on the doors and cried, "we want justice." along with the cries of ivc want in" and ' we want Wil- son."

The president was cheered for about one minute by the congregation when he entered the church. Admiral Rodman, staff officers and hip commanders of the Pacific fleet called iipon the president this after noon. The president complimented ihem on the precision with which the review went off yesterday. The greater part or the day the president spent quietly at the hotel, where Vie slept last' right after con cluding 'perhaps the -most strenuous week of his entire speaking trip. He was somewhat fatigued by the ten i'ay journey acs3 the continent, but his physician. Dr. Cary T. Grayson, .-aid Mr. Wllso i was in excellent healtn onsidering the many addresses made since he left Washington. Although he had traveled only i little more than 4,000 miles on his 10,000-mile itinerary and has been on the road only about one-third of the total time to be consumed by the trip, the president has made eighteen of tho thirty-three se speeches on his sched ule. One speech will be .the rule durin? all of the coming week, with the ex ception of Tuesday, when there is no address on the schedule. He will fpend the entire -week on the Pacific t oast, and from Tuesday morning unt'l .Sunday night will be n California, the home state of Senator Johnson, a leader simong treaty opponents. Leaving Seattle late tonight, the president will speak tomorrow night in Portland, Ore. Tuesday will be snent on the train en route to San lYancisco. where he will speak on Wednesday night. Thursday night lis will be in Oakland, Friday night in San Diego, and Saturday night in Los Angeles. Because of the lightening of bis schedule of set speeches, it is con sidered possible that he will break his rule against talking from the rear plat form of his train more frequently.

A dispatch from Berlin says the text of the note of September 11, written by Premier Clemenceau to the German govern ment concerning clauses in the Ger man constitution objected to by the entente, has been published in the German capital. M. Clemenceau's note, which was in reply to the German government's de fense of the articles protested against, called the German reply an "ingenious artifice," which would enable, for in stance, the German constitution to de clare that an army of several million men should be maintained by recruit ing and that when the allied and asso ciated powers drew attention to such stipulation as being contrary to the peace treaty, the German government could -reply that the constitution pro vided a sufficient guarantee in article ITS stipulating that nothing in the peace treaty should be affected by the constitution. The note proceeds to point that ar ticle 112 of the constitution says no Germans shall be delivered up to for eign tribunal, although the peace treaty expressly provides that certain persons, accused of the violation of the laws of war, shall be delivered for trial by a foreign tribunal. The note ends with the copy of a diplomatic document which the Ger man plenipotentiaries must sign in the presence of representatives of the al lied and associated powers and which the German legislative authorities must ratify within a fortnight after the treaty of peace Is in force. The text of the diplomatic note says: "The undersigned, duly empowered to act In the name of the German gov ernment recognizes and declares that all prescriptions of the German con stitution which are in contradiction to the Versailles treaty are not valid, notably the admission of Austrian rep resentatives can take place only if conformably with the treaty, the league of nations gives assent to a modifica tion of 'Austria's international situa tion."

Reciting the fact that 19 members of the Boston Police men's union had been tried for violation of the order against affiliation and had been removed, and that the place3 of the other strikers had been declared vacant, he added: "I can suggest no authority outside the courts to take further action." The governor's telegram follows: "Replying to your telegram, I have already refused to remove the commis sioner of Boston. I did not appoint him. He can assume no position which the courts would uphold except what the people have by the author ity of their law invested in him. He speaks only with their voice.
