N J , May 3 President Vll6on last night interpreted the fight in New Jersey for Jury relorm and constitutional revision, as a part of the struggle of the American people to obtain through the Democratic par ly equal justiie to all and special privilege 10 none. Though he made no reference to legislative itolicies pending in Washington, the president Indicated that the protests being voiced against the tariff bill were those of the special interests and not the masses. "Some of my fellow citizens and some of their colleagues in Washing ton city," he said, "now think that they are hearing the voice of the peo ple of the United States, when they are only hearing the part that has become vocal by moving down to Washington and insisting upon its special Interests "As I sit In my office In Washing ton, there are windows only on one side of the room, and those windows look out on a part and the Potomac river and the shores of Virginia on the other side, and I cannot see Wash ington from those windows, though I sometimes think I can. because Washington behind me is seething with special representatives of little things who are almost storming at the, doors of this office, whereas, out h r are the cool large spaces of the I'nited Suites. And I would rather hear the whispers coming In at these window-; here than the strident arguments com ing in at those doors." The president spent a strenuous day fighting for the reform which be came to New Jersey to advocate. In the Inst speech of his trip last night applause and expressions of approv al Interrupted him frequently as he assailed the Influences in the Btate which, he claimed, were managing the populous country' for private pur poses. The president early In his remarks referred to the Incidents in the legislative conference during the noon hour, when Asscmbhman Ml Dermott openly defied him and fired such a series of questions at Mr j Wilson that Acting Governor Feld- r iuierened to prevent an embarrass ing situation.
