(Continued from First Page.)
American nation is founded all de
mand that tho people of the National
Capital bo given the right to vote,"
he said.
Can't Believe His Bam.
"There is no argument which can be
UBed against the appeal of Washing
ton for suffrage for its citizens. I
could hardly believe my ears when 1
was told that the people of the Na
tional Capital of the greatest repub
lic on earth were forbidden to vote.
"To think that the residents of the
city of Washington, endeared in the
hearts of American people for the
past century and as the very heart
of American democracy, should be de
prived of the right of casting the bal
lot. It is beyond my understanding.
"Congress should take steps at the
right the. undemocratic conditions aa
regards the right to vote, existing in
the National Capital.
"Went to Back Fight.
"I can safely say that the West,
where the love of country and of the
principles of true democracy are of
first concern, will be solidly behind
the National Capital in Its campaign
to win the right to vote."
"The North, East, and South, I can
also safely say, in behalf of the men
from those sections of the country
attending the conference, will support
Washington's plea, by Instructing
their Congressmen to permit the vote
in the National Capital.
"I. predict that when a bill to give
suffrage to the District comes up in
Congress, the 'ayes will make it un
animous; for Congress is representa
tive of the democratic ideals of the
American nation, and Congress will
see to it that American principles pre
vail throughout the whole country.
Should Introduce BUI.
"Washington should be given the
right to vote, just as soon as it is
possible to put a District suffrage bill
through Congress." said Daniel L.
Keister. mayor of Harrlsburg, Fa.,
and one of the conferees meeting at
the White House today.
" Taxation without representation
is tyranny, is as much of an Ameri
canism today as it was in the time
of Patrick Henry. It strikes me as
being rather peculiar that the Na
tional Capital, which has been justly
idealized as the seat of American
ideals, should be deprived of a con
stitutional right.
"Washington, I know, is glad to
send her sons to defend the honor of
the nation; Washington is glad to
give of her wealth to aid in uphold
ing the strength of the nation, and
Washington, I know, rightfully re
sents having her citizens regarded as
people without the ability to vote as
American citizens.
"By all means, let the residents of
the National Capital vote. Whe.
their campaign for suffrage comes
up in Congress, they will surely find
all of the strength and influence of
the rest of the nation behind them in
their plea for their constitutional
rights?.
IMMEDIATE PEACE AND
RETURN TO NATURAL BASIS
ASKED BY GOV. COOLIDGE
Removal of Governmental control
'and return to from an artificial to a
natural basis, will do much toward
solving our problems of reconstruc
tion. Governor Calvin Coolidge of
Massachusetts told the gathering of
governors and mayors in the East
Room of the White House today.
"Governor Coolidge opened the sec
ond day's session of the important
conference called by Secretary of
Labor Wilson to try to formulate a
unified plan for buffer employment to
tide the country over from war to
peace.
"The first thing to do," said Gov
ernor Coolidge. "is to make peace
with those with whom we have been
at war. With peace made, artificial
'barriers removed and our business
again under way, there is more like
ly to be a scarcity of labor than an
over supply. There is a ehortage of
man power abroad. There never was
so. much work to b done in the
world. In Massachusetts we are
planning to spend $4,400,000 on road
building and building construction."
Governor Coolidge favors taking
the Government guarantee from
wheat prices, declaring that lower
food prices will help bring about a
readjustment as quickly as any one
thing that can be done.
Governor Coolidge's address was
fairly typical to the spirit of the
men who are here attending the con
ference. They seem to unite in the view that
the nation's financial stability will
bring industrial employment back to
normal soon.

This number is four more than the

seven Senators, of whom some will be

LODGE RESOLUTION
ON WORLD LEAGUE
The text of the resolution read in
the Senate last night by Senator
Lodge of Massachusetts follows:
"Whereas, under the Constitu
tion it is the function of the Sen
ate to advise and consent to or
dissent from the ratification of
any treaty of the United States,
and no such treaty can become
operative without the consent of
the Senate expressed bv the af
firmative ote of two-thirds of
the Senators present; and
"Whereas, owing to the vic
tory of the arms of the United
States and of the nations with
whom it is associated, a peace
conference was convened and is
now in session at Paris for the
purpose of settling the terms of
peace; and
"Whereas, a committee of the
conference has proposed a con
stitution for a league of nations
and th,e proposal, is now before
the peace conference for its con-i-ideration:
"Now, therefore, be it resolved
by the Senate of the United
States in the discharge of its con
stitutional duty of advice in re
gard to treaties, that it is the
sense of the Senate that while it
is their sincere desire that the
nations of the world should try
to promote peace and general
disarmament, the constitution of
the league of nations in the form
now proposed to the peace con
ference should not be accepted by
the United States.
"And be it resolved further.
That it is the sense of the Senate"
that the negotiations on the part
of the United States should im
mediately be directed to the ut
most expedition of the urgent
business of negotiating peace
terms with Germany satisfactory
to the United States and the na
tions with whom the United
States is associated in the war
against the German government
and the proposal for a league of
nations to insure the permanent
peace of the world should be then
taken up for careful and serious
consideration."'
be definitely against the proposed
constitution.
Democrat Surprised.
Democratic leaders today admitted
they did not know long in advance
of the Republican pln. Senator
Lewis, Democratic whip, was mani
festly surprised when he enter
ed the chamber and learned what
had happened.
Senator Sherman in an early morn
ing speech on the resolution said:
"The resolution introduced by Sen
ator Lodge will be a signed souvenir
for the President to take with him
to Paris. It will give the gay and
light-hearted Parisians some infor
mation on public sentiment, and will
show them that there is some op
position to the league.''

Weary legislators became fighting
legislators upon the slightest provo
cation, notwithstanding the majesty
of their calling.
The dignity of the House of Rep
resentatives was unmistakably com
promised in the "wee hours" this
morning when Chairman Henry D.
Flood of the Foreign Affairs Commit
tee; Congressman Joseph Walsh, Re
publican, of Massachusetts; Congress
man John M. Baer, Republican, of
North Dakota, and the assistant ser-geant-at-arms
verged upon a brawl.
Walsh digressed from a report he
was reading with reference to his
opinions of the National Security
League, attempting to elaborate upon
his views.
Flood objected on the ground Waljh
was trying to make a speech.
"The gentleman states a falsehood
when he says I'm delivering a speech,"
Walsh fired back at Flood.
The latter rushed at Walsh, but was
interrupted by Claude Kitchin, Demo
cratic floor leader.
Baer rushed to the assistance of
Walsh, and the assistant sergeant-at-arms
entered the foray with fists
clenched, exhibiting an eagerness to
let fall his fifet upon Bear's features
The assistant, who loses his Job at
noon today, displayed no restraint of
temper, and tugged to break for Baer.
Meanwhile Speaker Clark hammer
ed and hammered with his gavel, the
Speaker's desk receiving a vigorous
beating.
"I apologize for my remarK. I
spoke hastily," said Walsh to Flood.
That ended it. Only a few in the
galleries witnessed the affray.
