President Is Kepi Advised
of Fiume Incident; His
Campaign Is Winning.
By DAVID LAWItCXCE.
EN ROUTE to Salt Lake City, Utah,
Sept. 23. President "Wilson has
been kept constantly advised, while
traveling, of events in Europe, and
has, of course, been given an account
of the seizure of Plume by an Ital
ian force under ' rAnnuarto. Mr.
Wilson has made no specific mention
!
i
of the incident in his speeches but.rt. William Z. Poster, of the steel
has in a general way warned his I workers national committee, said
hearers against tbe disruption of af
fairs in southeastern Europe unless
the league of nations were quickly
brought Into being;
He baa expressed the hope that
a tragic confirmation of his pre
diction would not result from tbe
delay. Yet, Inasmuch as peace luisV

supreme war council still func

can marines in the Flume rrgrlon

ious American participation la
Balkan operations. '
American destroyers cooperated
with the Italian navy in the Adriatic
and Americaio troops once stood
guard at Flume along with the troops
of other countries. The other powers
alone would have felt embarrassed by
tfay aloftneas on the pert of the
United States had she stood off while
D'Annunzio kept possession of tbe
pert of Flume; so the addition of a
email contingent of American marines
to the force which is demanding
D'Annunzlo's withdrawal can be con
strued as largely for moral effect.
Can Stcrve IAnnunzio Out.
It is not expected any fighting will
be necessary to compel! D'Annunzio'
evacuation of Fiume as the forces of
tbe associated powers are sufficient
to maintain a blockade that -can easily
starve the recalcitrant Italian t into
submission.
If the league of nations had
been in actual operation today
tbe -government of Italy vtoold

It disavowed connection with the

outcropptngs of arbitrary force be

countered on his travels the editorial

concerned at all In these clashes and
conflicts? And he has answered by
declaring that Jos: sueb a clash, just
such a friction between races and
peoples whose rights the United
States and the larger powers had not
taken into consideration in 1914, led
to the assassination of the Austrian
crown prince and finally a world war.

Those newspapers which are, on the
other band, trying to give the impres
