REPUBLICAN SENATORS CRITICIZE
WILSON IN NON-RATIFICATION OF
INDIAN ATOMS, link. Sept. 12. (/P) Senator Hi
ram lolmson ol California who is making a tour ol eastern
cities speaking against the ratification ol the league ol na
tions anil the peace treaty, received an enthusiastic welcome
in this city today. He spoke in the largest hall in the down
l town section ol the cits, the crow d w hicli heard him tilling it
to overflowing.
That part ol the peace treats and league ol nations
covenant relerring to the keeping ol American troop abroad,
was the point attacked In Senator Johnson. He insisted that
all American troops should he returned from Siberia uii
mediatelv and as soon as possible from the Rhineland ol
Germany. His words regarding Siberia were greeted with
great cheering, interrupting him to such an extent that he
could not continue. When he could make himself heard
again, however, he again attacked the league saying, I am
here and vou are here because Americanism still lives.
When Senator Johnson made his appearance on the
speakers’ platform he was introduced by former ambassador
to Mexico, William N. Wilson. In introducing the sena
tor Mr. Wilson compared him to the late Theodore Roose
velt, saying that, like Roosevelt, he calls everything b\ its
right name and that to him a spade is a spade. Ibis intro
ductorv speech was greeted with loud cheeiing and ciits
from the crowd ol “you are right.

conference without his lourteen points and that when he did
so the American people did not i|tiit but that somebody
else, evidently refering to Mr. Wilson, did <|iiit. With ie
gard to the Presdient’s argument that war will surely folllo\
the non ratification of the peace treaty Senator Johnson told
his audience that the United Slates would stand beween the
people and war and between them and the predicted loss of
their liberties.
