PARIS, Sept. 9. That politically
the Vatican has Joined with the
democrats, casting Its lot with' the
new world wide liberal movement,
is revealed in a papal letter pub
lished today In connection with the
participation of French Catholics in
the coming parliamentary elections.
The Vatican will hereafter accept
democracy as the only source of po
litical power and will work to up
build permanently democratic gov
ernments. The Vatican program
contains four definite planks for the
establishment of social peace, as fol
lows: "Co-operation of all classes, coali
tion of all classes against bolshevlam,
acceptance of democracy anil educa
tion Of the proletariat."
Immediately prececding the "war,

of democracies had left tho Vatican
wlth only the Ilapsburg and Spanish
Rumania Will Not Sign

ognizing democracy or practically
disappearing from the diplomatic
Pope Benedict frankly announced
his choice of the former.
- One almost certain result of this
policy will be eventual resumption
of political and diplomatic relations
with France, Italy thus gaining the
support of the two leading Catholic
countries of Europe.

WASHINGTON, 8ept. 9. If Pres
ident Wilson counted upon a strong
reaction from the territory in which
he spoke in the form of telegraini
and letters to the tenutort urging
that opposition to the ratification of
the treaty cease, he has not yet made
his trip a success, according to the
opposition senators.
With this situation giving them
confidence, Senators Johnson, Borah
and McCornilck left this afternoon
to open their, unique series of long
range debates with the president.
As Senator Johnson swings along
President Wilson's trail he will take
up the covenant point by point tc
a his opinion of the "sacrifice
ot Americanism," which he says It
represents.. Senator Borah'wlll take
a dirtereni route,, nammering upon
the same Issue.'
Borah said today that the only
letter he had received upon the sub
ject was from a St. Paul business
man whom he does not know, urging
him to keep up the tight.
This letter, he said, declared that
the president talked only general
ities In St. Louis, audjhat while he
had a big crowd he had not . im
pressed that locality with the belief
that the treuty Is unimpeachable.
