When Mr. Wilson declared it was a matter of amazement that were now opposing the league, in the crowd shouted some men one some •'Shame on them," and many others There were more took up the cry. cheers a moment later when he de dared the treaty was founded on the rights of the weak rather than j the power of the strong. It was a people's treaty, he said, not a states- j man's treaty. The peoples of the world, he said, were tired of the old system of autocratic domination and : they would overthrow it "one way or ■ another."

The peace of Portsmouth, he declared, by which Japan acquired Port Arthur at the end of the Russo-Japanese war, was "exactly similar" to the Shantung provision of the present treaty. Each he said, gave Japan rights in China which had belonged to her defeated enemy. Great Britian and France "can not in honor" now violate their secret treaties with Japan, the president de clared, and the only way in which the case of Shantung could be bettered was to go to war against France. Great Britain and Japan. He asked whether those opposing the Shantung provision of the treaty were willing to start such a war and added : "Their interest in China is not the interest of assisting China, but of defeating the treaty." "That's it" and "that's the boy," yelled the crowd, and then there were more cheers. it to to Treaty Gives China a Forum. Under the league, for the first time, he said.
