MARTIN t'nlird I'rm HU/f Correapondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 6.—Warning President Wilson that snares may be set for him in Europe, Senator Lewis, democratic whip and close adviser of the president, told the senate today that the proposed league of nations might become a danger to the world peace rather than a guarantee of it. He said that "in the past the £reat wars have been conducted between those who were previously allies and grew from the exclusion of the compacts of peace." "1 will not be blind to this prospect even as between ourselves and those we now call allies," he said. Detailing his fears, Ix?wis declared if the United States was favored in the decision of a dispute, other countries, demanding reciprocity, might exact so much as "to weaken the link with the future or cause us to be charged with bed faith." He said Japan might solicit Great Britain and France to demand abolition of our policy of exclusion of Asiatics and that they in turn might periling Japan to denuuvi retrac tion of the Monroe doctrine. Lewis said he spoke wholly on his own responsibility. Peace Will Determine U. S. Military Power BT CARL. P. GROAT (United Tress Correspondent) WASHINGTON. Dec. America'* army and navy pro crams wD depend largely upon I"resident Wilson's success or failure In sernrte* adaption of his plan «f non miittairUm while abroad. What he wants, aa already gener ally outlined. Is to have Britain aban don her Ides of unbridled sea suprem try. He wants her to pool her naval strength In an International navy. He opposes any Idea of an Aroerlcan- Brltiah navy. At the same time, he wants the irwil lamp spirit removed from the world with respect to army power. If England refuses to hearken to his program as to naval armament, this government will go ahead with a program dentlned to make the Unit ed States the equal, and perhaps su perlor to Kngland. on the seas.
