C.-As this letter i being written President Wilson is ,t grips with what imperialist sen timent there may be among the mem lers of the entente governments. The conservatives do not, apparently, ap proe of his fundamental program for the terms of peace. Administra tion officials are pledged to silence as to just what is transpiring be hind those locked doors at Versailles, even in the light bits of information they receive, but through the stoutest ,locks there filters a web of hints and drcumstances which makes it evident that at least three of his. points are challenged. These are the demand that there shall be no economic or ummercial alliances among any group of nations, except such as may be employed by the League of Na tns to discipline an offender; the demand that freedom of the seas hall become a reality; and, finally, the demand that the whole question d colonies shall be taken up and ettled on a basis of the rights of he colonial populations as well as the rights of the civilized nations ch have held them. If the rumors now flying about 1 Washington are true the opponents of these three points in the Wilson I pgram have surprised the presi- c ft b insisting upon an immediate i ttlement of the peace terms, in- 1 of first establishing drastic 1 ditions for an armistice and then ng to the council table to con- a r the whole world's interest in z of the peace terms. a The whole meaning of democracy z ceforth-the democracy won by I * war-hangs on this conference Versailles. President Wilson 2s f n the cable constantly, making a endous fight. He has one vote a four. IMPERIALISM IN THE SENATE former Senator Hansbrough of 'orth Dakota, who for 18 years was member of the "stalwart" Repub crowd in the American house Slords and then reformed, 'after g betrayed by Theodore Roose eit, addressed a sharp letter to his Siriend, Senator Lodge, the other "To accuse any of my old col @, said Hansbrough, "with :ag theiaelves to a scheme de rately intended to counteract the Fat demosatic movement now go Son in the VWor!i might appear as g.a'mitous and ungracious act on y part. Still. I can not resist the nclusion that this is what the mi .riy campaign raally amounts to. I am glad to know that your dis leadership of the senate minor has served to discredit the Roose t telegram to you denouncing the points in their entirety. 'Still that does not dispose of the 'er, for with Republican victory next Tuesday's election, should h a misfortune come to the coun , at once the Roosevelt idea takes place as the program of the party, the colonel himself occupying first-line trench. %e very last thing for the states of this age to forget is that the now going on had its inception has trailed its bloody cou'se in LED BY THE HARVESTER TRUST iasbrough learned the gratitude the reactionary political crowd of for so many years he had been si•ve agent, when he tried to Nrrtdent Roosevelt to prosecute rvester trust. This trust was Particular enemy of North Da It was good political sense, rator concluded, to fight the r combine. to Roosevelt with an elabor 'haing of facts as to the crimes t rvester trust promoters, he that these promoters be under federal law. Ac to .ansbrough's account of i %iew, Roosevelt pounded the ith his fist and declared that I Sare the facts, these mea St in the penitentiary." - t called up Attorney Geu.4 rte on the telephone, and i eome to the White Hone. 1 th enthusiasti chief •a _ered Bonaparte to e of the heads of ther bar. aanmediately. id te, for some stranl i not begin action. D S" eks Passed, and stall &wes taken. n o 4ICoered that Bonapar j- received word from the White House, soon after the departure of the sena tor from the interview, telling the Sattorney general that he need not be r in a hurry to bring action against e the harvester people. t, A campaign was on. Hansbrough suddenly found himself outside the r administratio circle. He discovered s that Roosevelt's friends were avoid - ing him, and then he discovered that - the International Harvester company e had vetoed' his further tenure of a seat in the senate. So Hansbrough had his lesson of Roosevelt, as so many men in con gress have haa theirs. He lives in a Maryland town just outside the Dis trict of Columbia now, and watches the game of national politics. And every time he sees Roosevelt sneak I ing up on President Wilson for an Indian blow he feels like sounding an alarm. FURTHER WALL STREET ATTACKS On the other side of the political field are these two former progres sives, now hopelessly reaktionary- ex-Senator Bourne of Oregon and Senator Poindexter of Washington. Hansbrough became a progressive at the very end of his political career. Poindexter and Bourne won their seats through their reputations as progressives, and then started down hill toward toryism. Bourne has long since been forgotten, except for the tariff-oving campaign he carries on in the national capital under the name of "Republican Publicity asso ciation." Big textile interests and Wall Street financial interests seem to be backing his efforts. And from this doubtful obscurity he emerges every little while with a sniper's shot at the more liberal policies of the ad ministration. For example, Bourne sent out on October 31 a press state ment entitled, "President's Terms Please Germany." The state department is barring from the privilege of passports to Europe nowadays, for diplomatic rea sons, men of high scientific attain ments and broad democratic sympa thies. What would be adequate treatment for Bourne, on that basis of caution, can only be guessed at! SHIPYARD WORKERS UPHOLD PRESIDENT As for Poindexter, he won re-elec tion two years ago on his record as an early progressive. But today he out-Roosevelt T. R., and out-Pen roses Penrose in his warfare against Z the essentially democratic features of c the president's foreign and domestic s policy. Matters have reached such a pass that the Riggers' and Fasteners' s union, shipyard workers in Seattle, has sent this telegram to President Wilson: "Representing more than 4,003 shipyard workers, many of whom left more profitable employment to build the natibn's bride of ships, we hasten to assure you that the people of the state of Washington are not behind Senator Poindexter in his detestable threat of your impeachment in the event you fail to carry out the will of the imperialist group which he has joined, in spite of the fact that he was elected as a progressive. "We feel that we know some of the influences that are brought to bear upon you. We realize that 23, 000 new millionaires have been made, and that older millionaires have quadrupled their fortunes, out of the blood and tears of this war. The state of Washington has its share of profiteers, whose patriotism cgnsists not in love of humanity but lust for money, but the people bf this state, uninfluence4 by motives of greed, have supported you in this war be cause of their perfect confidence in the sincerity of`your declarations of lofty purpose. "With that same confidence in you, we expect this war to be concluded when that lofty purpose has been achieved, and that neither the threats nor the pleadings Of the pro fteers or Peindeiters cab lead you to continue `a war for humanity and de meoceracy -'t it baI es a bloody struggle at toaquest anid subjuga RdYo bi & iod. i et ; h' the h , toser.
