QUESTION ROOSEVELT'S CRITICISM OF POLICY British Press Unanimous in De claring Former President's Speech Not Justified LONDON, June I.—Mr. Roosevelt's j speech at Guildhall yesterday contin- Had today to be the sensation of news- ; papers throughout the country. The editorial comments on his start ling utterances concerning British rule in Egypt were influenced, as a rule, by partisanship. The conservative press defends the conclusions drawn by the! American statesman, while the liberals oppose his deductions with equal seri ousness. ' But outside the questions of fact set forth the newspapers almost without ,tlon challenge the propriety of a foreign guest of the city criticising the LOioiiiiU policy of the empire. Of the comments cf the conservative press the following are samples: The Globe: "It was not the time nor the place nor was the former president the person to display this particular form of interest in the business of his j hosts." The Pall Mall Gazette: "The uncon ventional is justified only by success. | If he prefers realities to the proprie- | ties where vital interests are concerned ! so does the Judgment of the British j people." The Standard: "That he should lay hands on one of the nation's private and particular political subjects • seemed a social crime not far from | sacrilege, but in reading the speech i carefully there is found nothing of ■which to complain." Of the Liberal papers the Westmin ster Gazette questions the necessity and disagrees with the conclusions of the speech. The Star says Mr. Roosevelt should learn that he is not exempt from the customs of civilized nations. Mr. Roosevelt passed today quietly. He visited the national gallery during the forenoon and had luncheon with several men prominent in the Irish- Nationalist party. There were sixteen leading Nation alists at the luncheon and Mr. Roose- j velt had an intimate discussion of j Irish affairs -with them. Only two , speeches were made— by John Red- ' mond and the other a humorous reply j by the former president. Before his departure from London Mr. Roosevelt will be entertained by King George. His majesty will re ceive his guest, not in the capacity of special ambassador to the funeral of | the late King Edward, but as a dis- | tinguished visitor. The former presi- , dent will be a guest overnight at the country home of Frederick C. Selo. DEMOCRATS TO PROTEST ROOSEVELT'S STATEMENT SAHATOOA, N. T. f June 1.— George Foster Peabody, the banker, who has lieen a prominent figure in the coun- j ells of the Democratic party, has Is- | sued a statement here declaring the : Roosevelt speech in London yesterday wiis "a piece of reckless jingoism which should be promptly repudiated by the | American people." I The Btatement proposes the hoMine of muss meetings in New York and other large cities to show that the peo- j pie of the United States are not in sympathy with this suggested Ameri can interference with other people, and "to voice our respect for other govern- j ments and our adherence to the prln- j ciples of "Washington's immortal fare- ; well address." INSURGENTS REFUSE TO MEET TEDDY IN A BODY WASHINGTON, June I.—Represen tative Carey of Wisconsin, who is one of the insurgent Republicans of the house, has a plan for all of the Insur gents to go to New York in a body and meet Colonel Roosevelt n the latter's arrival frm Europe June 18.

"We have not lost our senses —political or otherwise." Norris of Nebraska said he did not Intend going to New York. BACK TO THE COWBOYS!
