Hoover State Purpose Secretary Hoover, speaking Im mediately after the President bad concluded his address, declared the conference first should determine the volume, distribution and charac ter of the nation's unemployment and second, evolve a series of emer gency methods to meet the present situation. The commerce secretary express ed the belief, as did President Har- ding, that the conference also should consider measures which could be utilised In event ot recurrence of un employment tides. Remedies for the unemployment situation, Mr, Hoover declared, must not Include any legislative program and there must be no drain upbn the public treasury. v The United States, he said, had ?6 far escaped the doles and" charity methods ot foreign nations and should seek a mobilization of the co-operative ac tion of manufacturers,, employers and public authorities to meet tho ; ituation.

XO. 39 WILSON filAT LEAO FluHT 8E8LIII TREfllY "Return From Elba" Seen In Report He Has Sent Word For Party Action. Washington, Sept. 26. The Sen ute was agog today over reports, apparently well-founded, that for n.tr President Woodrcw Wilson, trom the secluded rctlrtn.ent of his private residence here, had sent forth word to the Capitol calling on all true believers in the League.of Nations faith to rise and defeat tho new treaties of peace with Germany, Austria and Hungary now awaiting ratification. Mr. Wilson It is understood, has been quietly inviting some of his old spokesmen among tlie Democra tic Senators to his home and lias been reminding them of the doc trines which dominated his unyield ing position regarding the Leaguo of Nations and tlie Vei saiK. treaty. He takes Cue view, it is reported, thc.t the new tr.'jitie? regotlaud by the Harding Adminisration, in eC itvt, do constitute "a separa'.a peace" with Oern.any and a der tion on the part of America from :'ne Allied Powers.. A 'Ilcmiii From F.llm" m News of Jlr. Wilson's "return from Elba," produced powerful re sults among the Democrats. The in difference with which they have re garded the Harding treaties changed overnight to an attitude of inten-je :ost:!ity on the part of many of Senator John Sharp Williams, r..;-::sbi; pi, follower of Woodrow Vi ! through thick and thin, led tao procession ar.d made a vigorous speech calculated to start an anti treaty band wagon on the Democra tic side. lie told colleagues that although "in a moment of pessimism" he had stated his willingness to support the treaty he had just changed his mind and would now cast his vote against it. Senator Carter Glass, Virginia, Secretary of the Treasury under Mr. Wilson has also declared itsain.it the treaty. The Possible Lineup Just how many votes the crats will he able to muster the pact remains to lie seen, three votes will defeat it. Deir.o . Vei:nt TUrty- TUere are only thirty six Democrats in tiio Senate', and so;:ie of them a'.reuly have indicated their wiliiiie,r.bss to support the treaty. Included in thi3 group are Sena tor Oscar Underwood Alabama, tho Democratic leader, and Senator Gil bert M. Hitchcock, Nebraska, who le.I the figlu for the League of Na tions. Not more thrin three Republicans fin be counted aalu"t the treaty. It sc-?;;;s probable thai the combined efforts of Woodrow Wilson ar.d Sen ator William E. Borah. Idaho, Re publican 'irreeoncilt.ble." will fall sl'ort of defeating the pact. It seems equally probaMe, however, that the opposition will assume iro portions sutTicieiit to make a power fill drive against the pact and con siderably delay action. DCLlGilTFFL CAR!)
