PARIS, Dec. 4. The ten American1
dreadnaughts, which will escort Pres- j
Ident Wilson into French waters, will
turn about immediately after their ar
rival to carry homeward a largo party
of American soldiers and sailors.
The trip will be so timed that the
j men will arrive at a home port by
I Christmas.
1 Tho operation will constitute one of I
the most extensive movements of bat- j
tleships for transport purposes everj
undertaken. Vice Admiral Wilson at
Brest is making -arrangements for the
movement and determining the trans-1
port capacity of each battleship which
at this time is less than usual because
of the regular crews having been in-'
creased so that recruits might be !
trained. A large number of folding
steel beds will be mounted between i
decks, however, thus making the ag
gregate capacity of the battleship fleet
many thousands of men.
Brest already is crowded with sol
diers and sailors awaiting the homo
ward trip.
Going to Brest.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. President
Wilson and his peace party are not
expected to reach Paris before late
next week, probably not until Satur
day. The trip across will be made
at ordinary cruising speed, as there
is no occasion for haste.
The George Washington is going di
rect to Brest, France, one of the chief
French ports of debarkation for the
American army. Probably a very large
number of American troops will be at'
the camps in that vicinity when the'
president arrives and will participate
in the initial ceremonies welcoming
him to France.

Commencing December S, the Four
minute men of the United States, who
dwell in those fortunate places which
are delivered from the epidemic will
go to the task of explaining" "what
have we won."
In announcing to congress the sign
ing of the armistice, President Wilson
said: "Everything for which America
has fought has been accomplished."
"During tho next seven days the
Four-Minute men of the government!
will devote their speches to review
ing the war aims of America and to
demonstrating just how those aims
were accomplished when the enemies
and the allied powers agreed to base
the future world peace on America's
war aims as expressed in the famous

the subsequent four fundamental prin
ciples of February 11th and in the four
summary paragraphs of July 4th.
The bulletin of information sent out
from National headquarters of Four
Minute men in Washington is entitled
"What Have We Won?" and goes into
the subject of American influence on
world peace very thoroughly.
"America's contribution was not
merely furnishing the forco that turn
ed the tide of battle at Chateau Thi
erry; it was .in furnishing forces that
draw from the past and reach into the
future." The bulletin continues to de
fine these forces in the following man
ner: "The United States, as tho eldest
of democracies, gave first impulse to
the movement which in the last hund
red years has spread throughout the
world and which within a few swift
frceks has swept the last of the abso-
sands of feot aloft, and to direct
their movements. Thus begin

"America first declared the doctrine
that all men are created free anc
equal in their citizenship, which has
been the seed and ferment of democ
racy. "America first declared that govern
ments derive their just powers fron:
the consent of the governed, which all
the world today acknowledges to be
the only sound basis.
"The United States first proclaimed
the doctrine that conquest by a for
eign power upon any part of this con
tinent would be an offense againsl
this government. That doctrine, am
plified by a long line of American
presidents, has led the world's though!
to the present day belief, acknowledg
ed everywhere, that every state has
the right to work out its own destiny.
That is now recognized throughoul
the world as the only sound basis for
international law."
The Four-Minute men will traco the
development of the Monroe Doctrine
to its complete culmination in a basis
upon which will bo built the future
peace of the world, which basis has
been abbreviated by its author intc
a single sentence:
"The Reign of Law, Based on the
Consent of the Governed, Sustained
by Organized Opinion of Mankind."
These three principles are funda

they are now fated to become funda
mental in that world democracy which
America's blood and might have help

CHICAGO, Deo. 4. Who have been
more economical, men or women, dur

as much in our storo as men, during
the war. A jeweler said: "Women have
bought two-thirds of all the jewelry
sold. This includes diamonds and
pearls which have doubled in price
slnco the war began but are faafe in
vestments because they will go higher
for several years after the war." A
garment manufacturer said: "Sales of
women's dress goods this year have
been a third greater than last."
The merchants point in explanation
to the fact that moro women are work
ing than over before and making good
wages. Thousands of men, on the oth
er hand, have gone away to war. Pur
chases of clothes seem to prove, how
ever, that men are naturally more eco
nomical than women. Women are buy
ing more clothes than ever. Men are
buying less. 'This is proved by the
showing of the tailoring trade. While
the army drafts have seriously affect

customers, who are not within the
draft age, have decreased their patron
age and aro ordering fewer suits in a
ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 4. The fore

of the National Non-partisan league to
day was marked by tho same secrecy
as were the opening sessions yester

by the league regarding the forenoon
session reads as follows:
"The national convention has ap
proved permanent articles of associa

place the management eff the affairs of.
the organization entirely in the hands
I of the membership under the follow
ing procedure:
"Each ' state organization of the
league is to be governed by a commit

state committees are to be elected by
the state convention of the league in
each state. Delegates to the state con
ventions of the league will be chosen
as in tho past by the members them
selves in township or precinct meet

tee will bo a member of the national
committee of the league. The members
of the national committee will bo as
many as there are states in which the
league is organized. The national com

committee of three. The national ex

and chief executive officer of the
"After taking action on the articles
of association and the re-election of
President Townley, tho national con
tention, now in session, commenced
the work of auditing the books and ac
counts of the league. This work will
probably take some time.
"The national convention will ap
point a committee and formulate; rules
for holding a referendum of the mem
