i n:
Wilson laid before the .Semite at 1
o'clock this afternoon his views of
the attitude this government should !
take toward a league to enl'ori e peace. ,
This was admitted at the Unite
House at noon foll.vvintt the ei.pie '
tion of arranitem nls fm- a Hpec;al ko.v
nion of (hi. senate to hear the prosi-
dent. He lei t. the wl,ite ho,i ; at
' 12:47 and arrived at the s.naie iha!.i-:
hers three minutes later.
It was also u'.ated th.il the pre,-i- !
dent would not discuss p'."i'iiiu; peace i
luatters at thia tin-.e. j
The ollicia! unaouaeetnenl. as made i
public at the White Ifous", by Secre-!
tary Tumulty' us follows! :
"The president will discuss an out
line of the attiiiida cf tlie United
for the emancnt maintenance of
peace.
"There will he no diseii.;Mon of
pending matters between this and oth
er governments."
Hi fore President Wilson left for the
eapilol It becume Known that a copy
of outline of his impending ad Iress
to the senate is already out of the
hands of all the foreign governments.
Senators were deeply interested in
the action of the president, Senator
Stone when told that the White House
admitted that the matter to be disc.is
Bed was the formation of a league to
t.iforee peace declared that he was
hopeful that the action of the presi
dent would not ho misunderstood.
A number of bp in tors took the view
that the president's action was hound
to be reflected abroad and tiuiKt aid
hia efforts to re.itore peace in Europe,
It was fall that while he could not
diHCU'-ia tiny new proposition dealing
with the present, war he was in a po
sition to urge that the formation of
a leaguo would meet the objection
raised by foreign minister llallour
of Great r.rltnin that because Ger
many had violated pledges in the past
neh would have to ;;ivo guarantees
dealing with the future. There was
a enernl feeling among nenetors that
the action of the president while utv
precedented and very much unexpect
ed, was a natural advance from his
original note to the warring powers
and was following out a general plan
ulroudy derided by hint.
