Olympia National THE WASHINGTON STANDARD, OLYMPIA, WASH., FRIDAY. APRIL 6, 1917 PRESIDENT URGES CONGRESS TO ACT WILSON (.Itl l ll l) WITH (iIIEAT KST KNTIUM.\SM \s HI: DE LIVERS MESSAGE. In a dispassionate but unmeasured denunciation of the course of the itn-i perial German government, which he characterized as a challenge to all mankind and a warfare against all nations, President Wilson, address ing a joint session Monday night, 1 as soon as the house had been or ganized. urged congress to declare a, state of war existing between the United States and Germany. "I advise that the congress declare the recent course of the imperial Ger man government to be in fact noth ing less than war against the govern ment and people of the United States," the president said; "that it formally accept the status of bellig erent which has thus been thrust upon it, and that it take steps not only to put the country in a mire thorough state of defense, but also to exert all its power and employ all its resources to bring the government of the German empire to terms and end the war/' Neutrality Not Feasible. He declared that neutrality is "no longer feasible or desirable where the peace of the world is involved," and that armed neutrality had be come ineffectual enough at best and was likely to produce what it was meant to prevent. His address is published in full on another page. As soon as the president had fin ished speaking, resolutions to declare a state of war existing were intro duced in both houses of congress and referred to the proper committees, whereupon the joint session ad journed. While he was speaking word of the torpedoing without warning of the American steamer Aztec, the first American armed ship to be attacked In the barred zone, was passed from mouth to mouth, but the president did not know of it until he had finished. President Wilson's appearance be fore congress was marked by a scene of the greatest enthusiasm ever Bhown since he began delivering his addresses in person. Crowds on the outside of the capltol cheered him frantically as he*entered and as he left. Congress roared cheer after cheer ip an outburst of patriotic en thusiasm as he spoke. Never hKd he been greeted as enthusiastically as on this momentous occasion. »- As the president finished every per son on the floor and in the galleries are and shouted. Most of the sen ators unfolded flags they wore in their upper outside coat pockets and waved them vigorously. From the galleries the only mem bers who appeared not to be joining in the demonstration were some sen ators of the group which the presi dent branded as "willful men," who, by preventing a vote on the armed neutrality bill, had made the "great government of the United States con temptible." Chief Justice White of the United States supreme court was among those who cheered loudly, and there was no division of spirit between Re publicans and Democrats. TAKES CHARGE OF BUSINESS. [J. A.
