REED AGAIN FLAYS WILSON
Says Nation Is Not Bourfu by
, What He Said Doctrine
"Silly" He Says.
WASHINGTON. May 14. Ar
rarjgements for tlio senate's; vote to
morrow at 4 p. m. on tlio republ
ican peace resolution were completed
Yonlght, with ItH adoption and a voto
later by President Wilson wero forc-
gono conclusions, according to lead
ers of botli parties.
Democratic estimates were thnt
tho resolution would havo u major
ity from five to seven votes, depend
ing on whether another republican
Joins Senator McCumber of North
Dakota In opposition. At least" four
democrats were expected to vote
with republicans for adoption.
Tho president's voto message Is
expected to define more clearly the
campnlgn Issue on tho questions of
reaco and the treaty of Versailles.
Democratlo leaders tonight predict
ed that tho treaty would not bo
returned to tho senato with tho veto
message but that tho president
would outline more extensively his
position in the veto message and
thus let matters go "to the country."
Tho president's position, given in
Ills telegram to Oregon' domocrats,
was attacked today by Senator Heed,
democrat, Missouri, who spoko for
wore than two hours In behalf of
the peace resolution.
Ho declared that tho president's
notion In sending a telegram to Ore
gon democrats asking unqualified
support of tho treaty of Versailles
was "most autocratic and despotic."
Tho Missouri senator denied what
he said wore contentions of Senator
Hitchcock, tho administration lead
er in tho treaty fight, that the na
tion was "pledged" to the icaguo of
nations because of the president's
address to congress, outlining his 14
"His position Is, said Senator
Reed, referring to Mr. Hitchcock,
"that If the president makes a
tpceh auggestng it league of na
tions and members of congress ap
plaud this speech, tho country Is
thereby committed . . . and
bound to accept not only a Icaguo
but any kind of a Icaguo the presi
dent chooses to present."
Senator Reed said the peace res
olution had produced constornatlon
among "business buccanncers look
ing with greedy eyes on foreign en
terprises" under tho league and nlso
ttt'J disappointed European states
rnifn, who, ho said, hoped to havo
tho heavy burden of tho Armenians
taken by America.
Senator Reed spoko at length on
whit ho characterized ns the "silly
doctrlno that tho president by his
word alono can bind tho nation."

LONG SUGAR LACK
Shortage to Continue
2 or 3 Years- Ra
FLAYS PALMER'S ACTS
Would Have Bought Cuban
nnd Louisiana Crops He
OPPOSES LABOR REPRESSION
Injunction, Compulsory Arbi
tration and Industrial
WASHINGTON. Mav 14. Her
bcrt Hoover, former food adminis
trator and candidate for the renub
llcan nomination for president, gavo
his views to rotiKress todav on the
sugar anti industrial situations.
Appearing beforo a house- com
mittee Investigating tho sugar sit
uation, .Mr. Hoover declared that
the world shortage of the product
was likely to continue, two or thrco
years. Tim pressing need was ra
tioning, he said, with Immodtato
government action to control the
supply through commercial, not
legallstc methods. Although the
hearing related primarily to tho
action of Attorney General Palmer
In approving a maximum price for
the Louisiana crop. It reached out
Into a broader field after Mr.
Hoover said he could give only an
"off hand" opinion as to that pro
ceeding. Mr. Hoover said, however,
tha). tho government should havo
bought tho Louisiana crop last year,
pocketing the loss or else Belling to
tha luxury trade nt an advance.
Earlier In the day Mr. Hoover,
who was a member of President
Wilson's second Industrial confer
ence, told tho senato labor commit
teo ho did not lieluvn tho relation
ship between employers and em
ployes could be settled by any form
of legal repression, whether It bo
by Injunction, compulsory arbitra
tion or Industrial courts. Ho said
labor unquestionably had been af
focted by reports of tho excesslvo
profits of some employers, although
ho was emphaUo in asserting that
unlike Europe, the United States
had not been threatened by any at
tempt by labor leaders to lead the
strike us a political weapon
Answering a multitude of ques
tions bearing on tho Louisiana
sugar crop and price situation, Mr.
Hoover explained that he had no
knowledge of his own on tho sub
ject but that It Influenced Cuban
producers to stimulate prices and
that except for It, tho rise In prices
wluld have n.'en less rapid.
Mr. Hoover frankly disagreed
with tho policy adopted by the at
torney general, saying that if he
had been In tho latter's place he
"certainly would not have at
tempted such an operation." Prices
never could be fixed by threats of
Jail, he said, adding that the proper
courso was through commercial
In making reply to members who
wanted to know what should havo
been done to keep tho present high
sugar cost off tho people, Mr.
Hoover reiterated that tho govern
ment should havo bought the Cuban
crop ns well ns tho Loulslnna crop
and that even now there was a
chance to help by limiting tho sup
ply to non-essential Industries. In
this connection he told tho commit
tee that prohibition had stimulated
the uio of siignr the majiufacttiro
of sweet drinks, and thus had added
to the drain ou stocks needed for
Tho principle of Individual free
dom requires tho "open shop" Mr.
Hoover declared In testifying be
fore the senate comrnltteo at hear
ings on proposed legislation for tho
aettlenient of Industrial unrest
"I'sMidamontally," he declared,
"all such repression effort leads In
evitably to tho use of Jails as a so
lution for disputes ns to respective
participation of labor nnd capital
in Industrial profits, nnd proceeds
swiftly toward compulsory labor, or
compulsory wages, or martyrdom."
Asked about tho Kansas Indus
trial law Mr. Hoover snld It might
develop something of benefit to the
entire country, but that his own
view was that It could not succeed.!
