The police ore at a loss whether
to regard the missive seriously, as

It wu asserted by him that the Swan-

that they would go to Sweden for their

WASHINGTON-, May 24. Presi
dent Wilson, speaking at the opening
of the Pan-American financial con

that the Americans might show the
world the path to peace. The presl-,

delegates as he entered the hall of
the Americas in the Pan-American
Union building where the meeting
are being held. On the platform were
members of the cabinet, while the
audience included many high govern-
ment officials, in addition to the
representatives of South and Centrr.l

The president declared the people of
the Americas were not trying to make!
use or one another, but were trying to
be of use to one another. He spoke of
the handsome rivalry which he sa'd was
good for nations. The lack of the physi
cal means of communication between the
Americas, he said, stood somewhat in the
way of the development of commerce and
friendship. In advocating more ships In
pan-American trade and the opening of
new routes the presideit said that If
private capital cannot soon establish such
means of communication the government
must tmdeHaXy.ao do ae.

address he waa applauded again. Hi re
