Contrio. -S the jteare i-onferenre at Versailles with the congress of Vienna, President Wilson declartxl, on September 22. that the Vienna peiuv effort had failed because all the government represented there were in the hands of ' u smut) coterie of autocrats." At Versailles, said the president, the league of nations covenant was drawn up by great democracies so that au tocracies never again could enslave Lthe peoples of the world. One of the ptirMt.ses or 1 lie Vienna conference, ilr. Wilson usseiwi, was to form such a union as would hold In check the growing. tide of democracy. The chief c em of the delegates wliii s.it nt Versailles, he added, was to accomplish exactly the opjiosite. Speaking in a theatre here to n crowd of about 2XI0, the president frequently 'ns interrupted by ni plause. By an electrical device his words were carried to three other theatres holding HN) persons each. In his reference to the congress of Vienna, the president said that the ef fort there made to stifle revolution and democracy had been unsuccessful 11 every nation hut Germany. It was the invocation of the Mon- . l .1.... I tlm roe itoctrine, ne sum, mm oroc backbone of autocracy's effort to over whelm South America, and added that at Versailles the cycle of liberty hud been completed by application of the rfouroe doctrine to the whole world. Servant of the People. Unlike the Vienna congress, contin ued the president, nie conference at Versailles was niu'.e up of men who knew they were the servants and not the masters of the people. As the peo ple's servants, he said, they had car ried out their promise of a permanent peace. This treaty was not written, essen tially speaking, In Paris," he said. "It was written at Chateau Thierry, in Belleau Wood and in the Argonne. Our men did not fight with the purpose of coming bock and having the same thing happen again. They fought with the purpose of seeing the thing through and we are going to see it through." Tribute to Frontier Spirit. Paying a tribute to the frontier spirit of the west, the president said it was at the, frontier that was found the forward-looking people. Too many who oppose the treaty, he asserted, were looking over their shoulders. Referring to the "insula' fdinate rest lessness" prevailing In i5urope and Asia, Mr. Wilson ass'rted that the world not only desired peace, but must have it. America only could guaran tee such a peace. Asking his hearers whether they had not heard of organ izations in America "the purpose of which Is nothing less than to over throw the government Itself," he ad ded that it was Important to America also that unrest be quieted. Repeating his previous declarations in support of article X and other dis puted points of the treaty, the presi dent said the people had been dili gently misinformed about the contents of the documeut. He lauded the labor and mandatory 'eutures of the treaty, saying It eon tltuted "a great guarantee of Justice and liberty." The president also discussed the ob jection that the British empire would have an unequal representation in the league assembly, saying that the fear expressed on that score was a "buga boo." He also explained the Shan tung provision of the treaty, and said the league furnished China her best hope of regaining control of the pro vince. Discussing the withdrawal feature, Mr. Wilson said he didn't want to get into the league with a fear he might not be able to get out, but wanted to go in with the hope of staying In and helping all he could.

The president was completing a week's tour of the state, his brief ad dress ut Sacramento completing hi speech making in the golden Mate. The president bad not originally In tended speaking at Sacramento, but acceded to popular request. As 1 inally planned, the president was nv have completed his week's spech-UMk- ing on the Pacific coast at Los Angele, Saturday night.

Along th line of a ten-mile parade be rode In a din of applause and later at a pub lic dinner cheers greeted bis declara tions that the treaty should and would be accepted. When he entered the auditorium fur his night speech he was cheered for more than two minutes by a crowd estimated by the police at six thous and. The hull was Jammed and out side were thousands who could not get !n. Some bud been waiting since curly morning for the doors to open. Mr. Wilson alluded to an address. made by President McKlnloy 011 th lay before his assassination, and as serted that the martyred president' words about concord and arbitration seemed to show he had a prophetic vision on the eve of his death. Referring to objections that the league would involve the United State in "entangling alliances," Mr. Wilson said the league was in fact a proposal for disentanglement What Washington had In mind wan j exactly what these gentlemen want ta lead us back to," he said. "The day j of alliances is behind us." Article X the president charucter- Ized as an extension of the M on rue doctrine to the whole world, lie de clared there could be no real world rehabilitation until the universal spirit of unrest was quieted by the establish ment of peace. Without the United States In the- league, said the president, there could he no real guarantee of the peace set tlement. Because the American sugges tions ut the peace table had been cepted as entirely disinterested, he de clared, most of the decisions at the conference were framed, in the end., "on American specifications." Indus trially, economically, and politically, he added, the world would be "in despuir" If Aniericn now deserted It. President Wilson came to Los An geles Saturday to conclude his stay on the Pacific coast with a two-day visit devoted mostly to rest. The only ippointnients on his program up to s departure Sunday night were a public dinner and a night address at the Shriners' auditorium. Most of Sunday the president und Mrs. Wilson spent quietly, leaving their hotel only to attend services dur-. lng the morning at St. Paul's Episco pal rathedial. A report that tlie.v would take an afternoon automobile ride brought u big crowd around the hotel, but it waited in vain. An extract from a magazine article written In 1914 by Theodore Roosevelt was read by President Wilson in an ad dress at San Diego on September 19, as an argument In favor of the league of nations. . Speaking to a cheering crowd, which died the great San Diego stadium, the president also quoted from Senator Lodge, one of the most bitter ents of the treaty In its present form. and declared that.
