ARBITRATION THEME OF TALK Sees Hope for the Establishment of an ArMtratlon Court to Which All International Controversies ball Be Sobmltted. HARTFORD. Conn.. Sept. 7.-Gray skies but an enthusiastic crowd greeted Presi dent Taft on his arrival today In the Con necticut capital In fulfilling a long prom ised engagement to Senator George P. McLean. Memorial hall in the new state library was turned into a temporary lunch room for the visitors and the president, who was accompanied by Attorney General Wlckersham. Here the president made a brief reply to. the welcome by state and city. Nearly 50,000 people gathered at the state fair grounds to hear the president's views on arbitration. President Taft Is such a familiar figure In Connecticut that he spoke today like one renewing old acquaintances. He dealt almost exclusively with the legal technical ities of the arbitration treaties with Eng land and France which now await the ap proval of the American senate. Position of the Committee. Perhaps the most significant part of his address was as follows: 'The majority of the senate committee on foreign rela tions ssy they cannot consent that any body el Be shall decide for them where a question arising in the future is within the provision of the first article of this treaty; that for them to do so is to dele gate their power to another tribunal and is to bind themselves by an obligation which they have no power to assume. "It is the view of the minority, however, and with that,yiew I am earnestly In ac cord, that the issue where a future dif ference shall be within the terms of the description of article one of the treaty Is an International question arising out of a construction of the treaty under a claim of right by one of the parties to , an arbi tration and is a question therefore that the president and senate, acting as a treatymaklng power, has the right to agree by treaty to submit to a tribunal for final judgment. "In what different way is the treaty making power invoked when we ask the senate to concur in a treaty which agrees to subrnjt all juaticable differences to arbitration and when it is asked to agree to . submit to arbitration the question whether a dlfterenco -arising' Is 'Justlcabl or not under the treaty T I confess that I cannot see the distinction. 'It Is a well known fact that Norway and Sweden have made an agreement to settle all differences except those of vital Interest and national honor by submission to the Hague tribunal and they have fur ther agreed that when they differ as to whether the controversy arising is arbl tratable under the treaty or is within the exception, to submit the question to the board of arbitration for Its final discretion. Committee Without Power, "If I understand the attitude of the ma jority of tho senate committee. It la that they have no power and therefore the gov ernment has no power to enter into a treaty by which we shall agree to submit to a third person, constituting an independ ent tribunal, the question where we are bound under a treaty to bide the judgment of the tribunal as to a particular Issue, "The treaty-making power under the constitution. It has been decided by the supreme court, hardly knows definition or law. It Is one of the broadest powers con ferred by the constitution and it is con ferred on the executive and the senate. Certainly it Is not in the Interest of the cause of peace that that power should be limited In such a way that other govern ments may make treaties of this kind and we may not. "The Ideal toward which we are ail working with these treaties Is the ultimate establishment of an arbitral court to which we shall submit our Intentional controver sies with the same freedom and the same dependence on the judgment as in case of domestic courts. If the senate cannot bind Itself to submit questions of jurisdiction arising under the treaty as Norway and Sweden have done, for instance, then the prospect of real and substantial progress is most discouraging. What May Be the Result. "I call your attention to the unfortunate consequences, not only to ourselves, but to the whole civilized world, not only for today, but for ages to coma, if the final adoption of this reasoning by the senate committee is to prevail. Steadily through out the world the burden of the creation of armies and fleets has grown heavier and heavier and steadily the competition has grown more fierce and is crushing the life and the hopes, of the people, but steadily, too, and of late even more rap Idly has grown the hope that an escape from these burdens may be found. Now, wherever good men and women are long ing for the dawn ot this great day of I Peace, their eyes turned first with hope ' confidence to the great republic of ! the WMt- In thl rat movement we are set up a high court or nations and pledge their faith that they will resort no more to the dread arbitrament of war, but will abide by the verdict ot their chosen judges. "The great American nation Is unable I by Its constitution to help forward the I great movement, is unable to bind Itself I to any future broad submission ot Its case to an arbitral court, though the whole world follows this light of civilisation and peace. For remember. If the senate cannot now bind us to abide the judgment of an arbitral court as to whether a question Is justifiable. It can never bind us, and if the senate cannot bind us. the nation cannot bind us and this peaceful people la forever incapable ot taking a step along the great path which all the world wishes to tread and along which ail the world thinks America best fitted J iead."

"We have a strong enough case without it," he said. "We could not get the man here for a couple or days, at least, as he live out west. But we have asked him to come here just the same to see what there Is to his story. Of course we have re ceived, as is usual In murder cases, many letters from alleged eye witnesses. This man, however, signed his name and we find that he did once work as a farm hand at a place near the scene of the murder.
