ACCEPTS MONROE DOCTRINE
Lord Haldane Announces Britain's
Approval of Policy.
WOULD LOOKS TO UNITED STATES
Lord Chancellor Praises President
Wilson In Address at Thanks-a-trlng;
Dinner of the
LONDON, Nov. M. -The Thanksgiving
dinner of the American society here to
night was noteworthy because of the pro
nouncement of the British government's
endorsement of the Monroe 'doctrine by
Viscount Haldane, lord high chancellor.
Threo hundred and fifty American men
and women, with a large number of Brit
ish guests, were present and they cheered
Lord Ilaldane's words again and again.
Robert M. Fairbanks, president of the
society, proposed ''the king," and Lord
Haldane proposed ''the president of the
"I recently made a visit to the United
States," said Lord Haldane, "and came
back not only with a vivid recollection
of the cordial welcome I received, but
with a deep sense of the high ideals the
British and American nations hold in
common the high Ideals of citizenship
of 'the. two countries,"
Referring to the president, he said:
"Before ho became president Mr. Wood
row Wilson was a thinking man and a
moralist. In studying his career I con
not fall to be Impressed by his de
tached character and find that he has
not ceased to be a thinker and a moral
ist because he has become the holder of
a great office. "We see expressed to the
world in him the aspirations and Ideals
of his nation. It la not his expressed
declaration that the policy of the
United States is not one of conquest or
annexation; but the world looks to the
United States, with its enormous pos.
tlon and possessions, to carry on its tra
ditions without adding to its possessions.
British Coarse Also.
"That Is our course also. Nor Is it
the case that when the United States
Intervenes In any matter It is done for
lta own advantage. It was not the case
with Cuba, to which the United States
has restored Independence. England It
self has dons the samo thine in South
Africa, where wo gave back liberty to
thoso- with whom wo fought."
Speaking of the Monroe doctrine, hfr
said that the United States considered
Itself responsible for tho liberties of the
small nations of that hemisphere.
He Interpreted President Wilson's pol
icy to mean that the United States waa
ready to accept the responsibility of
insuring good terms itself in those
countries and to thoso who went
there and that tho United States should
set up a high Ideals of policy, Justice
and of righteousness.
Proposes Wilson's Health.
"I am not euro that any one should
speculate upon the Interpretation of that
policy," continued the high chancellor,
"but I thought myself at liberty to say
what I have. It is true Indeed that a
high spirit and a high aim have been
brought into the policy of the United
States in Its dealings, with adjacent
countries and It is because tht president
has taken the attituda ho has a step
which none can but admire; Whatever Us
consequence may be that I propose 1 good
health to Mr, Wood row Wilson, tha
president, and Mr. Woodrow Wilson, the'
Sir John A. Simon, the attorney gen
eral, proposed the health of the Amerl
can ambassador, Walter H. Page, and
declared him to be tho worthy successor
of his predecessors. He said:
"America and England have given
their best and their worst to each other.
America has sent us ragtime; w have
sent you mtllttant suffragettes."
