Chief interest in the peace treaty controversy centered in the presentation to the senate of the foreign relations commit tee's minority report recom mending immediate and unqual ified ratification of the treaty with Germany as presented by President Wilson.- The report, signed by six democratic mem bers of the committee, was pre sented at noon by Senator Hitchcock, leader fo the minor ity Debate on the floor of the sen ate will not be started before Monday, when the treaty will be called up to be kept continu ously before the body until final action is taken. Rejection Means Saerifiee. J Rejection of the peace treaty with I its league of nations covenant or I adoption of amendments would mesn 1 sacrifice by the United States of all j concessions obtained from Germany I under a dictated peace, minority I members of the foreign relations committee declared. S Tha report prepared by Senator I Hitchcock, of Nebraska, ranking; dem ocratic member of the committee, ; urged speedy ratification of the vtreaty without amendments or res fervatlons. It deplored "the long; and I unnecessary delay to which the treaty : has been subjected while locked up it 4 th eemmlttee,. whose Tecommen- dationa, were from the start a fore? grme conclusion" and asserted thes recommendations could have been , made in July. ' Senator Shields, democrat, Tennes ' see, did not sign the report, having announced he favored league covn i nant reservations prepared by Chair ? man "lodge. It was stated he would J Hot present a separate report. Those S signing In addition to Senator Hitch cock, were Senators Williams, Mis sissippi; Swanson, Virginia; Pom I rene, Ohio; Smith, Arizona, and Pltt Jtnan, Nevada, all democrats, I ' Deniea Lodge's Claim. I "The minority denied the claim put 1 forth in Chairman Lodge's report that 1 the peace conference still was in ses Islon. and has power "to bring Ger fman representatives to Paris," say ing such power of compulsion had : been exhausted and that Germany ) "had closed the chapter by signing l and by ratifying." v "If an amended treaty Is not signed : by Germany," the report added, "then ' It is in none of its parts, binding on 5 her." i The report numerated twelve con f cessions that the United States would i lose by failure to ratify the treaty, j these including industrial- and eco- nomic advantages and agreements. For Destroying League. Reservations proposed by the ma- L! jority, the report nald, were "for the purpose or destroying m league which has stood "the test of world wide criticism and unlimited at tack." The. minority urged that the work of the peace conferenec be con firmed and the peace of the world ad vanced by ratification of the treaty described as the best hope of the world "even if like all instrument alities It be not divinely perfect in every detail." The report contended that the in dustrial world was "in ferment" the financial world in doubt, and com merce halted while delay In the treaty bad ben caused "by the ma jority of a , .ommlttee known to be out of bar- v with the majority of the senat the majority of the , .

Billings, Mont., Sept. 11. (A, P.) Laying his appeal for the peace treaty before the . people of Montana today, President Wilson declared the question of Its ratification was a question whether the United States would fulfill its pledges to the people and to the world.' There were two addresses on his day's program, Mr. Wilson speaking at ' the' Billings auditorium before noon so that he could reach Helena in time for a meeting at night. He arrived' here from Bismarck, N.' D only a short time before the hour for his address. At the auditorium he found all of the 8,000 seats had been taken and many were standing. Mayor Mains introduced the presi dent, , saying that where a man. went across the sea and did the major por tion of the work of "righting the whole world's troubles, he was some man." Yells from the crowd greeted this declaration and there were more cheers when the mayor's little daugh ter presented a bouquet to Mrs. Wil son. Mr. Wilson said he had come "to consult" with the people in the light of circumstances which affected the whole world. Everywhere, he de clared, the human heart beats the same and on both sides of the ocean there was a sincere deBire that there should be no more war. It was a mistake, therefore, the president continued, to debate the peace treaty as if it were an ordinary .treaty. It was not merely a treaty with Germany, he said, but a treaty affecting a settlement of the affairs of the world. "And It is this treaty or no treaty," he added. "It ia this treaty because there can be no other. "This settlement is the first inter national , settlement -,-4. hat - is .based upon the happiness of the average people throughout the world. It is a people's treaty, and I venture the pre diction that it is not wise for parlia ments and congresses to attempt to alter it.'.' "It is a severe treaty," the presi dent went on, "but justly so." Some of the men who had called it unduly harsh, he added, were criticis ing the administration a year ago be cause they thought the United States would be "too easy with Germany." "They were pitiless then," he said; "they are pitiful now." The American dead in the war, Mr. Wilson declared, had fought not for the redemption of America, but for the redemption .of the world. Hard Not to Take Gun During War. It was one of the hardest of his trials during the war, he said, to be able merely to direct the policies of the nation and not "take a gun and go myself." The basic principle of the treaty, said Mr. Wilson, was that the terri tory everywhere belongs to the peo ple who live upon it. It was the la borious work of many minds, he added, and "has very few compro mises in it," following in general American specifications. Should It fail, he declared, it would be impos sible to get together again the ele ments necessary to make a new set tlement. The United States either must take the treaty, he said, or play a- lone hand in world affairs. "If you're going to play a lone hand," said he, "the hand that you play must have a weapon in it. And the weapon must be all the young men of the country, and the business of the country must be to pay the piper." "There was a spirit of unrest every where," he continued, "and it was the province of the treaty to set up an industrial democracy as well as a political democracy. " He continued that there were domestic questions to be settled In that connection be cause there could be no industrial democracy as long as monopolies ex isted. He was interrupted by applause when he added: "And we have not yet finished wiyi the monopolies." Citing again the upheaval In Rus sia, the president asked if his bear ers had not seen evidence of the spread of the unrest. It was the "dread" of every statesman in Europe, he continued, and a propaganda was spreading if In the United States. Apostles of Lenine Here. "There are apostles of Lenine In our midst," he said, "and it means to be an apostle of darkness. Our business is to see that no minority, no matter how rich, how poor, shall get control of the United States." The purification of political conditions never could be accomplished until the treaty was accepted and peace established. Some men debating the treaty, he added, seem to think there was "leisure," but there should be no leisurely discussion of such an issue. Can't Hate Fellow You Know. Repeating declarations made In his previous addresses, the president said the whole heart was in the provision for discussion and arbitration of in ternational controversies. "You can't hate a fellow you know," said Mr. Wilson. "I know some crooks that I tan't help liking." The league m. y not prevent all wars, he said, but 10 per cent Insur ance was better than none. Saying he had heard "radicalism" pervaded the west, Mr. Wilson con tinued: "There's only one way to beat radicalism, and that Is to de prive it of food. The only way to stop men from agitation against a grievance Is to remove the griev ance." He added as long as there were things that should be corrected he (Continued on Page Seven.) BOSTON TO HAVE NAVAL GUARD Acting Secretary Roosev So Instructs Naval Yard Commandant. OTHER STRIKES THREA J Mob in Sympathy With Po licemen Fatal Shots During Melee. Washington, Sept. 11. Acting Sec retary Roosevelt today Instructed the commandant of the Boston navy yard to establish a naval provost guard during the police strike. The guard will be charged with keeping order among the naval personnel,' but will not have any police authority so far as civilians are concerned. Mayor Sees Union . Leader. Boston, Sept. 11. The suggestion of federal aid Is due to the fear that certain unions affiliated with the striking policemen will carry out their threat to call sympathetic strikes. The greatest danger is that the firemen's union may strike. Late today Mayor Peters consented to see President O'Donnell and Busi ness Agent Jennings, of the Central Labor union, who were present at the American Federation of Labor convention at Greenfield when reso lutions were adopted calling upon union organizations In Boston to meet tonight and vote on the question of going out in support of the striking policemen. Rioting Broke Afresh. Boston, Sept. 11. Do.plu the efforts of state troops and volunteer policemen, rioting broke out afresh In the streets of Boston today, resulting In the death of one man and the arrest of scores of -rioters. The dead man Is believed to be Ray mond Barros, a sailor who was shot to death in Tremont street by a volunteer policeman when he attacked a state guardsman. So serious had the situation arising from the policemen's strike become that Gov. Coolldge today dispatched a tele gram to the secretary of war and the secretary of navy at Washington, re questing that they be ready to send fed eral troops to Boston at once upon de mand. "I wish," telegraphed the governor, "that you would hold yourself In readi ness to render assistance from forces under your command Immediately upon appeal which I may be forced to make to the president." Today's fatal shooting occurred at a subway entrance at Tremont and Boyls ton streets, In the heart of the city. The disturbance started when word reached the Lagrange street police sta tion that a big crap game was in prog ress In Tremont street. Company F, of the Twelfth state regiment, was hur ried, to the scene at double time. A ' gr eat , csaaaL . JU4 gathered about the gamblers. The troopers charged into the game and commanded the players to put up their hands. The troopers and policemen with drawn re volvers, forced back the crowd and formed a hollow square about the forty-four dice shooters and in this manner marched them down the street. Wob In Sympathy. The mob evidently sympathized with the officers and there was hooting at those arrested. Cries of "Don't arrest them; line 'era up and shoot 'em" came from all sides. Fighting broke out in Isolated spots In the mob and during the melee ffome shots were fired resulting in the death of Barros fifteen minutes after he had been rushed to a hospital. t Eyewitnesses said that Barros had attacked a guardsman and he was shot by a special policeman. There wero disturbances throughout the city today. A number of guardsmen charged an other big crap game on the common, around, which a great crowd had col wtoH. The nlnvers were ordered to throw up their hands and after collect- ! ing 150 of them the troopers marched them to the station. 'The total casualties of the rioting I up to noon today was five dead and many injured. Miss Margaret Walsh is in the hospital today irom a gun shot wound In the stomach, received last night when troops fired on a mob. Universal Military Training Urged by Maj.-Gen. Wood Commander of Central De partment Says Army of 225,000 Is Ample. Washington. Sept. 11. A regular army of 225.000 to 350,000, coupled with a system of universal military training that would provide an organized re serve, is ample for the present needs of the country, Maj.-Gen. Leonard Wood, commander of the central de partment, declared Wednesday before the senate military committee. In making his recommendations. Gen. Wood disagreed wholly with the more or less tentative war department bill, based on a regular force of 500,000. Gen. Wood also differed from the war department in fhe amount of training to be given reservists. He held that three months' training was too short, and recommended six months. The one point on which he was in accord with the de partment appeared to be the need of a strong general staff, although ha said he had not given the administration bill sufficient attention to discuss it in detail. The central department commander also favored an Independent air service, but did not approve creation of an air ministry or cabinet officer to head the department. The air forces, he said, worked at times with the army or the navy and at times alone, and under a separate organization could be thrown wholly to the aid of either of these services, as conditions warranted. The main point In preparation of the army was to see that adequate equip ment for 4.000,000 reserves was on hand, he said, adding, "that was where we fell down in this war."

Two British destroyers have ben sunk In the Baltic by mines with the loss of twenty lives, according to Information received here today. RIOTING AGAIN BY BOSTON MOB Boston Streets Patrolled by Militiamen Three Dead From Gunfire. SECOND LAWLESS NIGHT Boston, Sept. 11. A fresh disturb anoe in the polios strike oeoured to day when state guardsmen fired on a crowd of men and boys near the subway entrance at Tremont and Boyston streets. Several fell pros trated. The gang had refused to move on when requested. "Don't arrest themj line them up and shoot them," bystanders shouted to the soldiers. Two men were found to have been injured, a member of the merchant marine and a sailor. Another squad of guardsmen charged a gang conducting a crap game on the commons. The crowd started to flee, but the soldiers halted them and ordered them to hold up their hands. After rounding up 150 of the gang the guardsmen marched them to the police station. The total casualties from last night's riot in South Boston when troops fired on a crowd, was increased to four today by the death of Miss Margaret Walsh, aged 20, who was shot In the stomach. State guardsmen with fixed bayo nets patrolled the streets today. Their advent on the scene last night, while preventing further looting and highway robberies on the city streets, resulted In a heavier casualty list than that of the first night of terror. The three fatalities occurred at South Boston when the guardsmen ! nred into a mob numbering several thousand. Three of those wounded were women. The city was quiet today and the authorities bent their energies to averting a general strike. The guardsmen were unmolested and the numerous crap games which were in progress on street corners yesterday were not revived. The South Bostom shooting put a sudden end to lawlessness, which for a time exceeded that of the previous night. The mob had so thoroughly smashed windows and looted the stores in this district that there was little for it do in that direction, and It gave itself up to attacks on the guardsmen. The mob had previously stoned and beaten three volunteers before the arrival of the guardsmen. L. Mgr. George A. Patterson, rec tor of St. Vincent's church, in an address to the crowd pleaded with j the men to be orderly, but his efforts, were futile, for shortly afterward an ' organized gang, the members of j which were armed with revolvers, ! took the head of the mob and began smashing windows. While the confusion was at its height members of the mob began firing revolvers at the skirmish line of guardsmen from a nearby build ing. Ordered to Fire. Standing in front of his men with his other officers, Capt. Hadley gave the order: "Ready;, aim " Then some one shouted "fire." The skirmish line fired three vol leys, the first two over the heads of the crowd and the third somewhat lower. Five of those in the front ranks of the crowd sank to the ground. The rest of the mob scat tered wildly, screaming in terror. Capt. Hadley and his men stated afterwards that he did not give the command to fire. It was his inten tion, he explained, to try and frighten the mob by the same tactics he had successfully used earlier in the eve ning. It was claimed that some member of the crowd had cried "fire" and that the guardsmen had mistaken it for a command from their officer. The dead are: Robert Sheehan, 21; L street, South Boston. Anthony Carr, South Boston. Unidentified man shot in Howard street. Dying: Patrolman Richard Reemts, shot in back. Brlg.-Gen. Samuel D. Parker, com manding the state troops, called a conference of city and state officials today to consider the question of putting the city under martial law. Not Under Martial Law. Gen. Parker explained that al though policed by state guardsmen, Boston is not technically under mar tial law, Inasmuch as the guardsmen are subject to the orders of the po lice captains. Action by other unions affiliated with organized labor was awaited to- had stated that they were readv to! go out if called by the American Fed eration of Labor, leaving the city without fire protection. In anticipation of such an event it is planned to have the state guards men man the land forces and the navy department Is said to have given assurance that it will provide men to operate the fire boats. Early today several men Jumped from an automobile at Columbus avenue and Buckingham street andj at the point of a gun took the badges, i guns ana clubs from two young vol unteers. Sergt. McDonald arrived at this Juncture. The men jumped into their machine and sped away. Sergt. McDonald grabbed Arthur O. Shea, a striking police officer, who is being held pending an Investiga tion. Several shots were fired. The authorities claim Shea had a revolver in his possession. Suspend Fifty-three Police. Refusing a call to do emergency service In Boston, fifty-three mem bers of the Metropolitan force were suspended by Chief West for dis obedience. Householders In all of the Boston districts keep strict guard over their homes throughout the night, hundreds sleeping with guns beneath their pillows, or within handv reach In the case of necessity.

She stated that Harth "Jerked" her out of the car by the arm, and claimed that she bore bruises and marks from Harth's alleged treat ment of her an instant before the shooting.

A PEOPLE'S TREATY; WORLD AWAITS AMERICA'S LEADERSHIP Montana People Enthusiastic to Discussion of Purposes Billings, Mont., Sept. 11.

The president declared that he wanted the audience to realize that the wholo world Is waiting on Amer ica for leadership. Ho recited his ex periences In France where the peo ple time and time again Insisted that they must have America's aid in all things. Some twenty nations sent their greatest statesmen to Paris to draft this treaty. They were skilled men, open-minded and they realized that they were nobody's master. They were the servants of the people of the world and this treaty Is the first in strument designed for the happiness of the people of the woald. "This is essentially a peoples' treaty, and I venture to say it will not go well with parliaments and congresses that dare to alter it. BuiJt on Straifjbt Lines. "It is the great charter of human liberty. You cannot again assemble the men and nations who drafted it. It has very, very few compromises in it. It is laid down on straight lines and safeguards the peace of the world for all time." Here the president explained again his position that rejection of the. treaty means that the United States must play a lone hand. The big auditorium audience It is the main building of the fair grounds contained, according to estima tion, more than 7,000 people and they listened with the deepest attention to the president's remarks.

Ottawa, Sept. 11. Canada will op pose any changed league of nations covenant which would equalize the representation of Great Uritain and the United States. Cabinet ministers made this plain today during the debate on the peace treaty. "Great Britain gave millions In men and treasure to the war, while the 1'nlted State only gave hundreds of thousnnds," declared W. F. Cockshull. member of parliament from lirantford and a leading government supporter. "Surely, then. Great Hrltaln is en titled to greater representation In the league."

K, Just before he ended his address Pres ident Wilson took notice of the report '"-vrr TL nr fight radicalism as long as It was or derly radicalism. "One way to beat radicalism is to starve it of food; abolish the grievances that cause agi tation," said the president, i don't intend to oppose radicalism so long as there is reason for it. The president then stated that one of the results of the coming confer ence at 'Washington between capital and labor was to anollBh causes of un rest, between the two classes. The president closed by declaring he was convinced the treaty will be rati fied, lie bases this on what the plain people have told him, he said, and re cited various Incidents of the trip where persons In his audience had so assured him. "We kept our promise when we were weak. We will keep them now that we are strong, for we are the flower of mankind, so far aa civilisation Is con cerned." Billings Press Inquiry. Copies of the morning issue of the Hillings Gazette, contaiuing soven (uestions addressed to the president, were in evidence in the hall, but were not drawn to his attention. One of these questions was whether the. pres ident Intends to become, a candidate for a third term. The others asked for in formation as to why, when there were Changes made on Germany's request, others should not be made at the re quest of the Cnited States; what was meant by open covenants openly ar rived at. Why the United StHtea should riot have as many representatives in the. league as Great Britain and whether ho would agree to reservations favored by democratic senntors. It had been reported that an effort would be made publicly to read these questions to the presirlent. but this proved to be without foundation. One of the little picturesque episodes of the president's tour of the Hillings streets was when he passed through a little band of nurses from the city hos pital, who cheered him and waved Hags at him. The president stopped his automobile and made a short ad dress of thanks to thrm. homes. There was less rioting today than on Monday and Tuesday.
