Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 4. —Pres- ident Wilson appealed to a Kansas City crowd to-day to support the peace treaty as a charter for a new order of wo '.d "airs. It was his third Speech f o- the ♦••<■ ••• in Missouri, and was delivered before a capacity audience in Contention Hall. When the President, accompanied by Mrs. Wilson appeared on the platform of the vast auditorium the crowd each of whom had a small American air. arose and cheered for more than two minutes. President Wilson had beerr cheered as the presidential party paraded throuirh four miles of the city's streets to Convention Hall. The specml train bearing Presi dent Wilson and his party arrived here frbm St. Louis at 9.05 o'clock this morninc. I,ed by the Seventh Regiment band, three companies of troops and the machine gun battalion, the party left I'nion station in automobiles shortly after the arrival of the spe cial train. Hall is Packed President and Mrs. Wilson with Governor Fred G. Gardner and Major James Cowghill. of Kansas City were in the first car. The route of parade was lined with people, and as the President approached there were frequent out hrustr. of cheering. The parade passed through the business section to Convention Hall, Mhc-e arrancements had been made for seating I'O.OCo persons The rVors of th hall wr opened at a o'clock. Half nn hour later every scat was lil'ed and the crowd was still pouring in. seeking standing room. implicates Points In his address the Pre-sident cov ered many of the same points of the treaty he had discussed in prc\ - ions addresses. He said he had come to report to the people direct about one of the greatest documents in human histor. The treaty, he declared, was "st t through" with American prineii/ s. put there by the common consent of the world. One of the things America had hsd in heart throughout her whole existence said the Presider-t. was that arbitration and consultation should be substituted for force. This wis accomplished, be declared, by the League of Nations covenant. Nine months of discussion of any international controversy would be assured under the covenant, he as serted. adding that this principle previously had been written i n * < ' thirty arbitration treaties, ail of which were confirmed by the Uni ted States Senate. The principle of the league, he declared, already bad been adopted by the United States. Effective Disarmament The boycotts imposed on cov enant breakers were emphasized by the President as constituting a meas ure more effective than military force. "The most conclusive" thing that could happen to a nation, he continued, was "to be read out Of decent society." Effective Disarmament would be accomplished under the covenant, Mr Wilson predicted, dec'aring it was ridiculous to talk of the league as tending to war when "its whole osser.ve" is arbitration and peace. The league, he declared, would mean the end of the "military clan" throughout the world forever. "There is no other way to dis pense with great armaments without an agreement by the great nations of the world," said Mr. Wilson, and here is the agreement." Autocracy would perish with mil itarism. added the President and the intrigue which had terrorized Europe for generations would be irrded. Must Be Destroyed He declared that "democracies will sooner or later have to destroy that kind of government, and if we don't do it now the job will Jtill be before us." This task, he con tinued, must be carried to the ex tent that no minority anywhere could control the majority. "The men who now control the affairs of Russia," said Mr. Wilson, Find the Body of Prehistoric Giant By Associated Press. Jackson, Mich., Sept. 6.—What is thought to be dhe body of a prehistoric man, 12 feet in length, was found buried in the yard of a Jackson policeman while excavating work was being done there Friday. The body, it is said by physi cians who examined it, is in a perfect state of preservation, even to the hair and teeth. The physi cians expressed the opinion that the body was genuine.

Mr. Wilson sa d he "wondered that men ! do not wake up to the moral re sponsibility of what they are doing," : when they were "debating and dc- j bating." while tragic situations ; | waited to be dealt with as soon is ! | the debating was over. [ Hope for "every people in the j j world that haven't got what they ! i think they ought to have" was seen ; i by the President in the League pio- j . vision which empowers one nation i | to call friendly attention to what ' it thinks is an injustice inside an- j j other nation. Every such people. ' , said he. would have a "world forum" j j in which to present its ease. The people, the President said, j j.bad been misled about the Treaty; by men who look nt it "with the ; I jaundiced eyes of those who have i ' some private interests of their own." When these men were "gibbeted" by public opinion, be sn'd. "they Will regret that the gibbet is so high." Put Up or Shut Up Again "If anybody dare 1 to defeat this great instrument." he continued, "then they will have to gather to -1 gether their counselers for the world and do something better. I say it is a ease of put up or shut up. A negation will not save the world." The President said some men op posed the Treaty conscientiously, and he would take ofT his bat in the presence of any man's conscience. But these men, be added, based their opposition on "ignorance" of what was in the Treaty. Germany. the President said, would be the only great nation left I out of the League, "unless we de : cide to stay out and come in later i with Germany." Philfcipincs Perplexing Alluding to the American promise to set the Philippine islands free, Mr. Wilson said, the League would solve the "very perplexing" problem of how they were to be kept free : after their independence had been grantd. Mr. Wilson said he could i imagine the shades of the fathers' I looking on with astonishment "that the American spirit has made a con ! quest of the world." ! "I tell you," he added, "the war ; was won by the American spirit. I And America in this Treaty has real i ized what those gallant boys fought I for The men who make this impos sible or difficult will have a lifelong reckoning with the men who won the war" I The President asked the audience I not to think he lind come dut to I "fight or antagonize" anybody.

Washington, Sept. 6.—Senator : Norris, Republican, of Nebraska, speaking in the Senate to-day on the claims of China to Shantung, said the President would not tell the facts regarding the disposition of that province "because it would cast some reflection upon the Peace Conference " Supporters of the ;ui ministration, he said, "dare not be cause it would incur the displeas ure of their great leader," so the Senator announced he himself would relate the story of the "troubled community." In the narrative form that usually begins "once upon a time," Senator Norris told the story of Shantung. Throughout his speech which never was changed from its allegorical style, nations were referred to as individuals. Germany being styied Bill Kaiser: Japan, Mr. Jap; Great Britain, France and Italy as John Bull, Mr. French and Mr. Italiano, respectively, while the United States was named Miss Columbia. Bill Kaiser, pictured as a husky fellow who trained himself in the use of firearms with the idea of do spoiling his neighbors, the Senator said, "forcibly took the Shantung farm" from John Chinaman, and later when the other members of the community were engaged in punishing Bill Kaiser, Mr. Jap, tak ing advantage of Bill Kaiser's pre occupation in other fields, seized the property. The Senator's story of the sittings of the Peace Conference, included a satirical account of the journeys and methods of Miss Columbia, one who "possessed a beautiful voice and had a wonderful .command of language," adding that "she sur passed by. far the greatest of her sex in her ability to talk." Senator Norris declared that China had greater cause for com plaint against the United States than against any of the other judges, for the seizure of Shantung makes it Impossible for China to bring prod ucts from other parts of the coun try without submitting to the rule and regulations that may be im posed by Japan. Flyers to Thrill City With Daring Feats and Battle Stunts Late Today Late this afternoon the army flyers from Middletown are scheduled to thrill the city with daring loops and other sensational stunts. This is the first of the three days during which the four Curtlss type JN 4 H planes from the Middletown I eld will take pictures of Harris burg. These planes are enroute to other Pennsylvania cities for the same purpose, and will take the air this afternoon to make the first pho tographs. > It is the intention to take pictures of the proposed field at Maclay and Cameron streets together with all the approaches, etc., in order that planes coming in as strangers to this vicin ity may be enabled to find the field and land without mixing Into wires and other obstacles. With reference to the long stay of these planes in Harrisburg— August SO to September S—it is interesting to note that boosters say there reason for staying Is that already brought to the attention of Harrisburg citi zens. namely, that this city is the logical stopping place for all planes going West. Before venturing across the mountains, they all wish to stop here for repairs and overhauling, and when Harrisburg Is equipped with a good landing field, hangars and all other necessities j proposed, all planes will stop hers.

The weather was none too propi tious for the ceremony.'the addresses of President Poincare and Ambassa dor Wallace being delivered during a slight drizzle. None the less the scene was a brilliant one, numerous detachments of French and Ameri can soldiers, sailors and marines as sembled among the sandy dunes of the Point giving color to the picture. The guard of honor for instance, was composed of United States Marines, many of whom were veterans of the lighting on the Marne In 1918. In addition to Premier Clemen ceau.

Follow ing a lengthy session of the Delaware and Hudson Company miners' Grievance Committee here late yes terday orders were issued last night for a general suspension of wo>k in all of the collieries operated by the company in the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valleys. Twenty-six col lieries will be closed and 19,000 men affected by the strike, which will be the largest in the anthracite rcgio 0. since the six-months' strike in 1902. These mines produce in the neighborhood of 26,000 tons of coal daily. The trouble which resulted in the general strike order had its inception at the Powderly colliery, in Carbon dale, when the company installed mechanical loaders. The men at the colliery istruck, demanding that the machines be eliminated. They were supported in this demand by the men of the No. 1 Colebrook and Jermyn collieries, and a meeting of the General Grievance Committee was called.

FACILITIES FOR NEW MARKETS URGED IN CITY State Director Points to Ad vantages When Producer and Consumer Meet At a meeting this morning of the farmers who bring their produce to the city markets, held in Chestnut Street Hall, Guy Smith, director of tho State Bureau of Markets, of fered some suggestions on the ad visability of establishing a whole sale market in Harrisburg. Mr. Smith, who was secured by H. G. Niesley, county tarni agent, told the crowd of farmers who came from the market houses of the city to lis ten to him, some of the experiences of other cities which have adopted the wholesale market. In speaking of the high cost of living, he said that in many cases the general pub lic blamed the farmers unfairly for the rise of prices. It is sometimes the case, said Mr. Smith, that a farmer will not harvest a crop which he has sown, because market prices would not begin to pay him for the expense pf harvesting, sort ing and bringing it to the city. Most people, however, would see the plowed up crop and not consider the overhead expenses. The proposition put forward is to institute a market place somewhere in Harrisburg where farmers could : dispose of large quantities of food | products to wholesalers and con [Continurd on Page 19.] Necklace Stolen From Red Cross Girl in Paris Is Sold For Two Cones Paris, Sept- 6.—Two ice cream ] cones was the price which two Pa risian bellboys received the other day for a $l,OOO pearl necklace one of them had stolen from an Amer ican Red Cross worker here.
