Democratic leaders did not attempt, however, to minimize the effect that the split between the President and his former secretary of state might have both at the convention and at the polls in November. They recalled the dominant role Mr. Itryan played at the Raltlmnre gathering when Mr. Wilson first was nomlnnted and while ihe convention time Is yet in the dis tance, some of them, at least, look forward to stirring events in San Francisco. Many of the democratic leaders who gathered hern for the Jackson day de liberations left to-day for their homes, chairman Homer S. Cummings, of the National committee, conferred with Mime of those remaining concerning arrangements for the party convention on Juno 28, but no definite decision was reached. A meeting of tho executivo commu te will be called soon to formally dis cuss plans. Meantime, Chairman Cum mings expects to select members of a committee on arrangements which will go to San Francisco, probably In Fcbruar, to make, necessary arrange ments there.

Washington, .Ian. 8. fBy the Associated Press,) A split between President Wil son nn.l William .1. Uyan over whether the League of Nations should ho mndo an Issue at the coming election topped off the Jackson day deliberations of tho Democratic party chiefs. It came at tho Jackson dinner as the climax of a day in which San Francisco had been chotfen as the meeting place of the democratic natlonnl convention on Juno 23 and It charged tho air with political electricity. President Wilson, In his message rend to tho diners, assembled in two separate halls, declared that the "clear and single way out wns to submit tho question to Ihe voters as "a great and solemn refer endum." BRYAN IN GREAT FORM Mr. Rryan, showing all the old-tlmo vigor with which he led the fight for the President's nomlnatloi. at Baltimore in 1912, declared that tho Democratic party could not go before tho country on the Issue, because It Involved a delay of 14 months and meant success only If the democrats captured a two-thirds ma jority of the Senate. The party, Mr. Bryan declared, must secure such com promises as may bo possible," The disagreement between the President and his former secretary of state, tho first in public view since Mr. Bryan left the cabinet because he did not agreo with the President's course In the dlplo- j matte negotiations with Germany, was thus disclosed as a fact, although It has been rumored and rojortcd In the under ground currents of national politics. In the opinion ' of the political leaders It crystallized un Issue. NO THIRD TERM TALK President Wilson, In his message, said nothing whatever about a third term for himself and neither did he make any formal announcement of his Intended re tirement to private life as some had fore cast he would. Mr. Bryan In his pre pared address said nothing bearing on any ambitions toward a fourth presiden tial nomination, but before reading his manuscript he said he had nothing to ask and that therefore the diners would not listen to him with the thought that they were listening to a candidate. There were a dozen or more other speakers at the dinners and their views on whether the league should be made a campaign Issue were either divided, In favor -of the President's or Mr. Bryan's or else they did not touch on tho subject at all. VARYING SENTIMENTS. The gist of their speeches might easily be epitomized In this fashion: Senator Pomerene: Ratify the treaty with or without reservations, Former Secretary McAdoo: An arraign ment of republican administration, but ex piession about the league. Secretary Daniels: .Mr. Bryan Is entitled to credit for tho League of Nations treaty because his peace investigation conven tions were the ground work for It. Senator Hitchcock: Honorable com promise on the league question or a llnisli fight. Senator Owen: immediate ratification and proceed witli reconstruction legisla tion. Chairman Cummings: "Inevitable im pulses" are carrying the Democratic party "each day nearer and nearer to victory." Governor Cornwcll of West Virginia: "American Institutions are in danger of being overthrown by the unchecked growth of a 'labor autocracy," " Vice-chairman Kremer: "We accept the gauge of battle." Governor Cox of Ohio: "The old guard is In control of the party (republican) which it well nigh wrecked by its greed." Attorney General Palmer: "The war will not be over in fact until the iRsues which it has raised arc passed upon by tho great court of appeals In America and the Judgment of the people Is en tered," Former Ambassador Gernrd: "The coun try demands that both sides get together, that a compromise be made and peace given to the world." Former Speaker Clark: "Democratic achievements during the last six years untitle tho party to a long lease of pow er." Senator Underwood: "The Issuo is clear. The President has defined it beyond cavil." DINING ROOMS PACKED The host of democrat's on hand for the dlnnor had swamped tho available accommodations of any ono hotel In town and tho party was divided into two dinners at two seperato hotels a block apart. National Chairman Cum mlugs presided at ono and vice-chairman Kremer at the other. The dining rooms were packed, tickets wore at a piomium and there were many disap pointed ones who had to content thom selves with straining thnlr cars at tho doors. Both dinners began with toasts drunk to tho halth of President Wil son, tho guests olevatlng goblets of Potomac River water. At tho dinner whero Mr Cummings presided, Vlco-Prcsldenl Marshall was seated at tho right and Secrotury Lans ing at the left. Two women, Mrs. George Bass of Colorado and Mrs. Charles Tiffany of Now York woro at the speakers' table. At tho dinner ovnr which Mr. Kremer presided Mrs, Peter Olesen of Minnesota sat at tho speak ers' table, DOUBLE SPEECHES MADE The same hcI of speakers addressed both dinners, going from ono to tho other In various order. At some timo during tho evening both parties of din ers woro addressed by Senator Hitch cock, Oovornor Cornwoll of West Vir ginia, Governor Cox of Ohio, James W. Gerard, Sonator Underwood, Secretary Daniels, former Speaker Champ Clark, Attorney General Palmiir, Mrs. Olesen, Senator Pomerene, Senator Owen and Wllllum .1. Bryan, Former secretary McAdoo'B telegram and President Wil son's message woro read to each, CUMMINOS PRESIDES In opening the speaking program, Honler S. Cummings, chairman of the. demo cratlo national committee, who will diroct tin- party's man presidential campaign, declnied that "Inevitable Impulses" were at work "carrying us each day neaier and nearer to victory." "Our cause Is sacred," he said, "and i tho contest Is but the measuring of our ' own spirits. For the. present, wc arc enduring with what patience we may, an Interlude of republican Incapacity. . Tho American people have paid, and are still paying, a staggering penalty for the j election of a. republican House and Senate . In November, WW. Since that time all the processes of government have been impaired, the work of reconstruction has been delayed, the development and ex- tension of American business has been prevented and the peace of the world has been postponed. I "Contrasted with their patent Inaptl- I tude we place our unparalleled record In peace and In war, enriched by a leader- ship which has carried America to greater i heights of prosperity and honor and suc cess than she has ever known before." In proposing tho health of President Wilson "stricken by his service tcy humanity," Mr. Cummings made brief reference to the treaty of Versailles anil the League of Nations. GERARD ADVISES COMPROMISE Compromise of the peace treaty fight In the Senate was urged by James W. Gerard, former ambassador to Germany, and an active cnndldate for tho demo cratic nomination for tho presidency. "I havo been for the league without change," said Mr, Gerard, "but a great danger threatens Europe. Without peace th Red flag will again be seen In the old capitals of the central empires a tiro kindled that my spread over the earth. Our country senses this It is sick of talk. It demands that both sides get together that a compromise be made and peace given to tho world after all the reserva tions are in favor of America and if tho other powers accept no harm can come to us by adopting them." Turning to the situation at home, Mr. Gerard said the Republican party to-day was. "confident of success and so Its loaders nro looking for a candidate war ranted In case of election to stand with out hltchlnf, while the wicked end of Wall Street is sharpening its knives for the slaughter." "For there Is a good and bad Willi street," hp continued. "A good Wall Street composed of broke! s and banks and corporations doing business honest ly; but there Is also a wickedly specula tive Wall Street, wrecking railroads when It can and fleecing the public. "If the railroads go back to private ownership government control must be so strict that this combination of law yers and doubtful bankers cannot again take up the old game." Referring to the Industrial situation, Mr, Gerard said men could not be made to woik by threatening them with jail or "by governing the coutnry industrially by Injunction." TRADE UNIONS WILL STAY "Tho Hade unions have come to stay," he said, "You cannot expect the work ers to abandon the unions, but the moment the unions or any other organiza tions seel: to usurp the functions of tho government or to put themselves above the government, they must be put down with a hand of steel. The solution 1 am confident will come in partnership tho admission of the workers to a share In profits and management." BRYAN SAYS HE ASKS .NOTHING Mr. Bryan told his audience that un like some of the other speakers lie had nothing to ask but spoke from gratitude rather than in expectation. "You will, therefore," ho added, "not listen to me with the thought that you are listening to a candidate." Mr. Bryan then read his prepared ad dress, saying he would follow it exactly because It was written before he knew tho contents of the President's letter. As he proceeded, however, Mr. Bryan Interspersed numerous extemporaneous arguments. "When wo remember the anathemas with which we havo denounced tho re publicans for seven months' delay," he said, referring to the treaty, "what will no our answer to Europe now If we delay for another It months while we consult the American people?" "If 1 know the American people," he continued, "they will never transfer to any foreign nation tho right to say when our boys shall ho conscripted." PRESIDENT WILSON'S MESSAGE. "it is with keenest regret that I find that I am to be deprived of tho pleasure and privilege of Joining you and tho other loyal democrats who are to assemblo to night to celebrato Jackson day and re new their vows of fidelity to tho great principles, of our party, tho principles which must now fulfill the hopes not on ly of our own people hut of tho world. "Tho United States enjoyed tho spirit ual leadership of the world until tho Sen nto of the United States failed to ratify the treaty by which the belligerent nations sought to effect the settlements for which they had fought throughout the war. It is Inconceivable that at this supreme" crisis and final turning point In the In lornatlonal relations of tho whole world, when the results of tho great war am by no means determined and are still nues. tlonnblo and dependent upon events which no man can foresee or count upon tho United States should withdraw from the concert of progressive and enlightened nations by which Germany was defeated and all similar governments (If the world ho so unhappy as tn contain uny) warned of tho certain consequences of any at tempt of a llko Iniquity, and yet that Ih the effect of the courao tho Senato of the United States has taken with regard to the treaty. of Versailles.

NOT THE NATION'S DECISION I do not hellevo that this is what tho people of this country wish or will be satisfied with. Personally, I do not accept the action of the Senate of the United States as the decision of tho nation. I have asserted from the first1 that the overwhelming majority of the people of this country desire the rati fication of the treaty, and my Impres sion to that effect has recently been confirmed by tho unmistakable evi dences of public opinion given during my visit to seventeen of the States. 1 1 have endeavored to mako It plain that I If tho Senate wishes to say what the undoubted meaning of the league Is, I shall have no objection; There can be no reasonable objection to Interpreta tions accompanying the act of ratifi cation itself. But when the treaty is acted upon, I must know whether it means that wo have ratified or reject ed it. Wo cannot rewrite this treaty. Wo must take it without changes which itltor its meaning, or leave It and thon, after the rest ot the world has signed It, we must face tho un-1 thinkable task of making another and separate kind of treaty with Germany. NEED SOLEMN REFERENDUM "But no mero assertions with regard to the wish and opinion of the country are credited. If there Is any doubt as to what the people of the country think on this vital matter, the clear and single way out Is to submit It for determination at the next election to the voters of tho nation to give the next election the form of a great and solemn referendum, a teferendum as to the part the United States is to play In completing the settle ments of the war, and In the prevention In the future of such outrages as Ger many attempted to perpetrate. We have no more moral right to refuse now to lake part In the execution and administration of these settlements than we had to re fuse to take part In the lighting of the last few weeks of the war which brought victory and made It possible to dictate to Germany what tho settlements should he. Our fidelity to our associates In the war Is In question, and the whole future of mankind. It will be heartening to tho whole world to know the attitude and purpose of the people of tho United States. DEMOCRACT NOT VINDICATED "I spoke Just now of the spiritual lead ership of the United States, thinking of International affairs. But there Is an other spiritual leadership whicfi Is open to us and which wo can assume. The world has been made safe for democracy, hut democracy has not been finally vin dicated. All sorts of crimes nro being committed in its name, all sorts of pre posterous perversions of Its doctrines and practices nre being attempted. This, In iny Judgment, Is to be the great privilege of the democracy ot tho United States, to show that It can lend tho way In tho solution of the great social nnd Indus trial problems of our time, and lead tho wny to a happy settled order of llfo, an well as to political liberty. Tho progiam for this achievement we must attempt to formulnte, and In carrying it out wo shall do more than ran ho done In any other way to sweop out of existence tho tyrannous and arbitrary forms of power which am now masquerading undor tho uamo of popular government. "Whenever wo look back to Andrew Jackson, we should draw fresh Inspira tion from his character and example. His mind grasped with such a splendid deflnltencps and firmness the principle of national authority and national action. Ho was so Indmnltablo In his purposo to give reality to tho principles of the government, that this is a very fortunate time to recall his career and to renew our vows of faithfulness to tho principles and the pure practices of democracy. I rejoice to Join you In this renewal of faith mid purpose, I hope that tho whole evening may be ot the happiest results as regards the fortunes of our party nnd tho nation."

The former transport St. Louis was scuttled to night by the opening- of her seacocks In a desperate effort to check flames which had swept the shlpo from stem to stern and were still blazing after a battle by the fire fighters which last ed seven hours. A few hours after the fire started It was reported under control but an hour later It burst out with renewed violence and the fire men wero forced to retreat before the terrific hoat. At midnight the ship listed badly and settled against the Kroonland threat ening to spread the flames to that steamer. Every available hose from the docks and fire tugs wm turned upon the Kroonland and the danger wns averted although the ship wne badly scorched, It was then decided to open the soacocks on the St, Louis.

Firmly, but In a dignified and courteous manner, the Netherlands government will refuse to comply with the prospective demand ot the allies for the surrender of Count William Hohenzollem, former German, emperor. Strong intimations to this ef fect were given to-day in the best Inform ed diplomatic quarters. The character of the Dutch reply to the expected allied communication call ing for tho surrender of the former Teu tonic cmporor will depend largely on tha text of tho note sent to Tho Hague. Re gardless of the nature of tho allied com munication, however, It wits doclared to day that Holland's laws will determine the issue for Tho Netherlands govern ment. The laws are said to contain no provisions authorizing the extradition ot Count Hohenzollern, who Is said to bo in tho cntegory of a political refugee, seeking asylum, and not that of a crim inal fugitive from Justice. No secret is made in Dutch circles of the embarrassment Holland has suffered by reason of the action of Count Hohen zollern In planting himself in the Neth erlands, Nevertheless It la felt that tha sanctity of the asylum must bo upheld. Tho jiosltion of tho United States gov ernment has been to question the ndvisa-. blllty of tho proposed trial of the Kalsor, on tho ground that nolther recognized International law nor precedent Justify such a procedure.
