MOREITE 0 ft KOI KUKSajMSL TREATY AMERICAN KXTENDS DEMOCRACY OYER THE WOULD: SHIFTS FOREIGN STAT ES FROM WAR TO PEACE I'resident Greeted liy IIurc Throngs at Kansas City anil I)i-s Moines and All Along Route SpeaUs in Roth Cities Shakes Hands Willi Children, White and Mark, and Willi Railroad Work ers at St. Joseph Des Moines, Iowa, Sept. 6. The Ver sailles treaty with its league of na tions covenant was explained here to n iy lit liy President Wilson as a purely American document extending democ racy over the world and shift ins foreign relations from a basis of force and war to one of arbitration and pence. Making his second address of the day. the president spoke in the Pes Moines Coliseum, said to scat 7.500. Tvery chair was taken and many were stand ing. Earlier in the day he had spoken at Kansas City, Mo., more than 300 miles away. An escort of airplanes dropped flowers on the president's special train as it approached the city, and he was cheered during an auto ride through crowds that packed the downtown streets far out beyond the curb. When be entered the Coliseum he was cheered again. The meet inn was opened with an in vocation and Mr. Wilson was introduced by J. C. Weaver, president of the Des Moines Chamber of Commerce, who epoke on the "outstanding figure in the life of the world today." Mrs. Wilson was not on the platform. Describing the world as desperately in rieod of the settled condition of peace, the president said the I'nited States, the last nation which the world expected to have to wait upon, was delaying the coming of that peace. The treaty, lie said, not only would establish peace, but it would end forever the rule of a few men over the destinies of the many. Bolshevism in America Citing what happened in Kurope with the rise of bolshevism, Mr. Wilson said the move of radicalism and disorder was spreading. "Do you honestly think that none of that poison has got Ir.'.'i 1he veins of this free people?" he asked. "Men look you calmly in the face, in America, and tell you they are for that sort of revo lution." "So long as the question of what kind f peace the world was to have and what were to lie behind it remained open, tile poison would continue to spread. "How long shall we be kept waiting fur answer whether the world will trust US or despise us?" lie continued. "The world stands annoyed because an an thority in America hesitates whether it will endorse an American doctrine." Labor Problem Waits The president said he had not been able to work out the solution of railway problems and would not be able to do so until he should know when a peace basis would come. The conference of labor and capital in Washington next month, he continued, also would have its deliberations affected by the answer to their question. Labor "all over the world Is waiting.'' he asserted, "to see whether the I'nited States accept ed the treaty's provision for an inter national organization." The I'nited States, said the presi dent, could not participate in the world labor conference to be held in "Washington soon under the treaty unless the treaty was invoniplislied by this country. Such a condition would be "conceivable," he added, and would lead to the grcatsct "mortifica tion." "The world is waiting," said the president, "to sec, not whether we will take part, but whether we "Will take the lead." Mr. Wilson said he had been "an noyed to see that the statesmanship of some gentlemen consists of the Very proposition of doing nothing at all.. "1 have heard of standing pat before, but I never have heard of stundputism to that length." MISS. WILSON ACCEPTS BENCH OF SWEET PEAS FKO.M MISSOURI KIDDY On Board President Wilson's Special Train, Sept. C Several hundred per sons met the president's special train at St. Joseph, Mo., where the train stopped for throe minutes on its way from Kansas City to Des Moines. The crowd .swarmed around the observation end of the president's car and called for a speech, but, acting on the advice of Dr. Grayson, he refrained from making one and exchanged friendly greetings, A group of women Red Cross workers pot the president and Mrs. Wilson to sign their roster, and Mrs. Wilson was ' presented with a basket of roses. After the train left the station it ' had to stop in the railroad yards to take water for the engine and the president ; shook hands with a number of railroad .yard men. With their grimy hands they showed some hesitation, hut the president smilingly urged them to come forward and he gave each a hearty clasp. ' Many children, white and negro, were on hand and were lifted up to the rail fo the president could Khake them by the hand also. The president seemed to enjoy particularly a tiny black plckan- ' riiny and its mammy, who, fighting a way through the crowd, got within reach of the rail. ''. "Hello, little one!" he said, takjig hold of a chubby and very dirty hund, "I am glad to see you." ; Another youngster struggled through "rid presented Mrs. Wilson with a inch of sweet peas.

The executive council f the Federated Railway Shopmen of the Chicago district has called a national convention to be held lu re Sept, 2a, it was announced today, to act on the wage scale granted by President Wilson. Steps will be taken to oust the rand lodge officials now in Washington In conference over wages with Director of Railroads Mines and other officials of the government, according to John D. Sunders and M. L. Mawver, who issued the call. Sanders said the grand lodge offi cials, who have counseled delay on part of the shopmen while wage nego tiations were in progress, are unpopu lar with the rank and file of the crafts men, and that nothing short of a sub stantial increase In wages will avert a general strike. More than 2.000 delegates from local unions throughout the country, arc expected to attend the convention. These represent 1100.000 workers who, it is stated, will lie up the transporta tion of the country should they de cide to strike. in smiles, Mrs. Wilson expressed her appreciation. One of the "movie" men accompany ing the presidential party got an un expected chance for a "close up" of the president, when Secretary Tumulty helped boost him over the rail to the platform to take the surging crowd. After training bis camera on the crowd, the operator turned and got a good pic ture of the president as he stood chat ting. "Here, stop that," Mr. Wilson said good-naturedly, "you must not do that behind a man's back." He then came over and patted the "movie" operator on the back. All along the route patriotic decora tions were much in evidence. On the slope of a railway cut near St. Joseph, a family of country people had taken a vantage point to catch a glimpses of the president, the men struggling to hold an eight foot American flagg in a stiff breeze and others waving smaller flags as the presidential special rolled by. Mr. Wilson spent a part of the after noon in the club car, where he talked over points in his speeches with the newspaper correspondents. He said he was satisfied with the treaty situation in the senate and was enjoying his trip. BODY OF PREHISTORIC MAN, 12 FEET LONfi. IS FOUND IN MICHIGAN Lansing, Mich., Sept. C. What is thought to be the body of a prehistoric man, 12 feet in length, was found bur ied in the yard of a Jackson policeman while excavating work was being done there Friday. The body, it is said by physicians who examined it, is in a perfect state uf preservation, even to the hair on the head anil the teeth, which show no signs of decay. The physicians gave It as their opinion that the body was genuine. The spot where the body was found was occupied till a few years ago by a large mound of earth, it was said, and specimens of petrified animal and veg etable matter have been found there, supporting the prehistoric-man theory. The legs of the body are six feet long; the arms. four. The head is round, with a face nearly flat, while th. skin Is lightly drawn and resembles brown leather. A stake, rotted, protruded from the chest of the body, which ap peared mumified. AMERICANS BARRED FROM TAMPICO SECTION I N LESS THEY WAIYE DAMAGE CKUMS Laredo. Texas. Sept. fi.

Facing the manuscript of a prepared address on the League of Nations, Senator Norris, republican, of Nebraska, declared in the senate today that President Wil son's statement in his St. Louis speech to the effect that (heat llritain and the other allies hud promised Japan Germany's rights in China in order to get Japan into the war wa.s "erro neous." "The president represented our gov ernment at the peace conference," said Senator Norris, "and he knew what was presented there and what the facts are. It is a matter of history that Groat llritain and the other allies did not make that secret agreement with Japan until 11)17. At the same time that the agreement was made, all of Herman's possessions in China had been captured and there was not a (ierman ship on the Pacific, so the president h:us not got Ids history on straight. I challenge the president to produce evidence to substantiate what he said in St. Louis. Senator Norris laid the president would not tell the facts regarding the disposition of Shantung province, "be cause it would cast some reflection on the peace conference." Supporters of the administration, he said, "dare not because it would incur the displeasure of their great leader," so the senator announced be himself would relate the story of "the troubled community." In narrative form that usually be gins "once upon a time, " Senator Nor ris told the story of Shantung. Throughout his speech, which never was changed from its allegorical style, nations were referred to as individuals, Oermatiy being styled Bill Kaiser; Ja pan, Mr. Jap; (ircat Britain. Franco and Italy as John Bull. Mr. French and Mr. Italiano. respectively, while the I'nited Suites was named Miss Columbia. Bill Kaiser, pictured as a husky fel low who trained himself in Hie use of firearms with the idea of despoiling his neighbors, the senator said, forci bly took the "Shantung farm" from John Chinaman and later, when the oilier members of the community were engaged in punishing Bill Kaiser. Mr. Jap, taking advantage of Bill Kaiser's preoccupation in other fields, seized the property. The senator's story of the tattings of the peace conference includes satiri cal account of the Journeys and meth ods of Miss Columbia, one who "pos sessed a beautiful voice and had a wonderful command of language," ad greatest that "she surpassed by far the greatest of her sex in her ability to tain." Senator Norris declared that China hud greater cause for complaint against the I'nited States than any of the oth er judges, lor the seizure of Shan tung makes it impossible for China to bring products from other parts of the country without submitting to the rule and regulations that may lie im posed by Japan, BY "ENGLAND AND ST. GEORGE!" BI T THIS IS REVERENCE FOR SAINT! London. Aug. 27. (Correspondence of the Associated Press.) It has been sug gested in Melbourne that the alleged bones of St. Oeorge. Kngland's patron saint, which were unearthed by some Australian engineers beneath the floor of a church in Palestine, should be sent to London, so that they might rest in some corner of Westminster Ab bey. The suggestion is not being re ceived with delight by the abbey author ities. "I do not care tuppence about his bones," said Canon It. II. Charles of Westminster, who spoke as a member of the chapter. "There is only room for six more famous people in the abbey, and even then they must lie cremated before they an- interred; so what is the good of bringing his bones here to be burned in some crematorium?"

IIP' WILSON FEARS BOLSHEVIK INROADS IN LESS TREATY IS RATIFIED PROMPTLY Des Moines, Iowa, Sept. (!. A pos sibility that bolshevism may spread in threatening prnMrtions (o the Tinted States unless the peace treaty is ratified promptly was suggested by President Wilson in an address here tonight. The whole world was waiting un easily, he said, while the xiison which had wrecked Russia was spreading among peoples who did not yet know what guarantees they were to he for liberty in t lit new world order, lilir and capital in the I'nited States, he asserted, could not pruned intelligently with their set lenient, nor could great prob lems like the railroad situation lie solved while the suspense continued. Mr. W ilson defended the Shantung provision of the treaty and said the league covenant section referring to the Monroe doctrine had been insert ed to "give the Monroe doctrine rigid of way ii (lie western hemisphere." He declared his conviction that it would do so. OKLAHOMA PHONE GIRL MAY BE ELIMINATED FOR AUTOMATIC CALL Oklahoma City. Sept. fi.

Ilubetithal, telephone engineer of the commission, has endorsed the automatic and regards the elimination of the human factor as the only means of securing entirely reliable service. The Southwestern Bell Telephone Company, in reply to demands of the commission that the telephone service in the state be improved, has habitually placed the blame for inadeiuate service on the inability to secure and retain efficient operating forces. AMERICAN MISSION REACHES CONSTANTINOPLE: INTEREST IN MANDATE PLAN AROUSED Constantinople, .Monday, Sept. 1. (Delayed.) The American mission un der Major General llarbord to study the situation in the near East has arrived here and Interest lias increased respect ing the possible acceptance by the 1'nit ed Stales of a mandate In Armenia or of the Ottoman empire, including Con stantinople, or as to whether Great Britain will share the burden. Americans here do not favor an Ar menian mandate alone, but a blanket mandate giving control politically against future wars. Introducing a suit able civil government and developing commerce on a big scale. It is pointed out that the difficulties between the Turks and Armeiiials are but a part of the whole problem. The ill-treatment of the Armenians has been due partially to their commercial supe riority to the Turks and partly to their national aspirations, which have arous ed jealousies resulting in oppression. This oppression has not been character istic of the Turks, bit; has been common in every country by the central empires In the near East. ( APT. R. W. PATTERSON ABOUT TO SAIL FOR HOME Rev. .T. (!.

This is a ituestion that is being asked ft'ecuently now ill local oil circles. The oil is of a higher gravity than llealiltou anil it should bring a hotter price, bill what lli.it price is going to be no one seems to know at this time. It is understood that sonic deals are on that will open the price at $'J.L,Ti a barrel, but whether they will be con summated or not cannot be told at this time. Emot I. Broiigliton. who was with the i Texas Company when the inili.il well i at Hewitt W.IS drilled. isce,jte, with having stated that the grade of the oil entitled it to go on the market at $ "J . J T . It has been rumored recently that the Texas Company had offered Aid more refineries Hewitt crude at Jl.llo a barrel and the A rdmnreile wired to Martin Moran. who has charge of too pipe line department in Oklahoma, for the Texas Company, and asked him if he had made such an offer and asked him please to inform us al what price Hewitt el ude would lie posted. Mr. Mo ran made a prompt reply, bill that reply was very brief. lie merely staled that the Texas Company had no llealdtoa crude for sale at fl.-O a barrel. Wheth er "llealdton" was us"d instead of "Hewitt." or whether both fields will have th" classification of llealdton crude was not explained In the tele gram. Mr. Moran did not state whether his company would buy oil from the pro ducers or not and did not intimate what he would pay. Weslheimer .V; Daliho are the first to get production in the new area, outside of the Texas Company, and it is prob able that Wcstheimer ii Diube will ar range to build steel tanks and store their oil. Other wells are drilling near the level of the sand and it Is import ant now that some arrangements be made for a market at something like what the oil is worth. Not all of the producers in the field will be able to build their own storage. A half dozen big pipe line companies have lines in this county and these could be very easilv extended to Hewitt, and there is tlo good reason on earth why there should not be a market for every barrel of Hewitt crude the moment it comes from the well. There are lines that run direct from this county to Bayonne, X. J., and large intermediate refineries are served by these carriers, and at this time Pennsyl vania crude has stepped up II', cents a barrel, which is very encouraging to local producers. It is true that Te:;as an I Oklahoma are producing lots of oil, hut while these states are active otl.ir stales of the union are not producing very much crude and the I'liiled States is now look j mg to the southwest lor its oil. Overproduction has not r ached such a. stage that it would cause a reduction in prices or depress prices. There is ever an increasing demand for crude oil and a local oil association is needed at this time to look into tlie matter of a market for local oil. Ardmore has several refineries that can use Hewitt crude at a profit and a line from Hewitt to Ardmore would be a mighty good investment at this time. THE FIRST WELL WAS GOOD; THE SECOND BETTER; THE THIRD STILL BETTER AND? Three hundred barrels in forty min utes, is the record of the third well at Hewitt. The second well was better than the first, the third is better than the second and there is a mighty good chance that the Weslheimer - Daub" well, a northeast offset to tlie discov ery well, will make l.Oial barrels. The discovery well began early ill June to put oil in the pipe line and it is flowing at this time. An ordi nary well would have been placed on the pump Weiks ago. The second Well is making more gas and the oil is com ing with greater force and freedom and still the third well is better than either cue of the other two. The entire HewiU iieid is a busy scene. Two new rigs, both of which are owned by Weslieimer Daube, have been completed a short distance east of tie- discovery well, and the Texas Company lias timbers on the ground ill that direction. It is usual for one producer to wait on another in a new field, but there lias never hern any wait and Watch period with Hewitt. Every producer has played ills own game and Is will ing to lake chances on getting a pay sand. When Wirt Franklin moved in a rig on the Thompson farm, In "1, the Car ter Oil Company did not wait. 11 went to drilling an offset and the Wolverine became busy In the same part of the field. There is an unusual confidence pre vailing among producers. Hewitt is regarded as a big field. Local oil investors should be able to profit out of their experience in oilier fields. When a new oil area is discovered opinion as to the trend of the field is formed and all the invest ors want to go in that direction. This makes prices high in one or two di rections, while lands in other directions are not so high. Healdton was played hi tlie wrong direction. Fox was played In the wrong direction and will history now repeat Itself and will Hewitt be played in tlie wrong direction? LAFAYETTE BIRTHDAY AND MARIE BATTLE'S New York. Sept. (!.
