WILSON TELLS OF
President Says He Will Not
Countenance War With Mex
ico Save as Last Resort.
PEOPLE APPEAL TO HIM
New York, July 1. President
Wilson made it plain in his speech
at the New York Press club ban
quet tonight that he will not coun
tenance a war with Mexico until
there is no other alternative for set
tling the border troubles. .
Again he declared that he was
ready to sacrifice his own political
fortunes in order to carry out his
convictions as to what would be the
just course to pursue in the situation.
The president's audience, composed
of newspaper men, state and munici
pal political leaders and others
prominent in public lite, signmea
their endorsement of his position by
repeated outbursts of applause.
They Cry "No, No."
When he asked if the glory of
America would be enhanced by a war
of conquest in Mexico, shouis ot no
came from all parts of the banquet
hall. A similar response was made
to his query whether it is America's
duty to carry selt-detense to the
point of dictation into the affairs of
The president dwelt also on his ef
forts to serve the whole people,
thousands of whom, he said, are ap
pealing to him to maintain peace as
long as possible.
"I have constantly to remind my
self," he said, "that I am not the
servant of those who wish to en
hance the value of their Mexican in
vestments, but that I am the servant
of the rank and file of the people of
the United States."
Colby Laudi Wilson.
Bainbridge Colby, who placed
Theodore Roosevelt in nomination
for the presidency at the progressive
convention at Chicago, paid President
Wilson high trbute, but did not de
clare unqualifiedly that he would sup
port him in the coming campaign,
as it was reported he would do.
President Wilson sail he had re
ceived many letters from property
owners in Mexico, but that the had
been many others from persons
whose names never would be known,
saying to him:
"For God's sake don't start war
with Mexico unless it is absolutely
Whit Engineer Said.
"I get a great many letters, my
fellow citizens," the president said,
"from important and influential men
in this country, but I get a great
many other letters. I get letters
from unknown men, from humble
men, from people whose names have
never been heard and never will be
recorded, and there is but on: prayer
in all of these letters: 'Mr. Presi
dent, do not allow anybody to per
suade you that the people ot this
country want war with anybody.'
"I got off a train yesterday, and
as I was bidding good-bye to the en
gineer, he said in an undertone, Mr.
President, keep out of Mexico.' And
if one man has said that to me, a
thousand have said it to me as I
have moved about the country."

NO GALLERY PLAY
FOR GENERAL HAIG
British Commander-in-Chief is
France Fighting Han on Job
Both Day and Night.
NO TIME FOR LONG STORIES
(Oorreiipond.tlc. of The Associated Print. )
British Headquarters, France, June
20. No military leader is more averse
to publicity or works more silently
than Sir Douglas Haig, the British
commander-in-chief in France. To
those who are importunate for the
offensive his answer is patience and
yet again patience while the new mu
nition factories begin to produce, and
he continues his building. His gen
erals say that he never tells them
his plans; only what they are to do.
Probably not one man out of ten
of the 1,000,000 or more under his
command would recognize him if they
saw him. Not given to reviews or
any kind of display, this quiet and
studious Scotsman was the choice of
the progressive, practical, driving ele
ment of the. army as the one Fit by
equipment, training and experience
to succeed Sir John French. At 55
he is nine years younger than Sir
John and ten years younger than
Joffre or von Hindenburg. There
is a story that he entered the army
as the result of a boyish wager. He
went through Oxford with distinction
before he went to the military school
at Sandhurst. His choice of arm was
the cavalry, which has had so little
to do so far in this war. But no
sooner had he received his commis
sion, later in life than most officers
because of the time that he had spent
at Oxford, than he set out with the
thoroughness of the student to master
every branch of his profession.
Struck by His Industry.
"It was in Berlin in the 90s that
I met a Captain Haig who was study
ing German and the German army,"
said an Englishman. "I was struck
by his industry not a brilliant man,
perhaps, but a sound and well-balanced
one. A little hesitant of speech,
what he did say went to the heart
He studied the French army, too,
and the history of all campaigns with
the systematic thoroughness that he
applied to everything. It was the
same with his pastimes as his profes
sion. Whether he had talent for it
or not he made himself a first-class
golf player, though the form which
he developed did not excite the envy
At the British Army Staff college,
where officers learn organization,
Captain Haig was a marked man be
fore he acted as chief of staff to
General French in South Africa in
the operations that made French's
reputation. He was a soldier's sol
dier who had won solid professional
esteem, though the public had hardly
heard of this reserved, undemonstra
Of the men of command rank in
the British army in August, 1914, the
general and Sir William Robertson,
another studious man who had risen
from the ranks and is now chief of
staff in London, were the two who
were appraised by the generation of
officers who had developed since
South Africa as having prepared
themselves for the direction oft large
bodies of troops on the scale of con
tinental warfare. They were not the
magnetic, dashing type, but organ
izers. Going out in the command of the
first army of the British expedition
ary force, Sir Douglas had seventeen
months' experience, Mons, Ypres and
Loos, of the warfare of the western
front which all agree is the toughest
school any soldier has ever known.
There was no doubt who command
ed the first army. It was Haig. He
was no figurehead for the work of
an able chief of staff. London gos
sip did not bandy his name about;
he was not a personality to the pub
lic, though he was to the army. When
anyone asked at the front who was
the best man to take Sir John's place
the answer was almost invariably:
"Haig." He had not captured the
army s imagination, but its reason.
The tribute was one to brains.
Much Is Expected.
The new army was arriving in
great numbers from its English drill
grounds when Haig took over com
mand. His country expects him to
make it an instrument which will ex
ecute a successful offensive on the
western front, where the four
months' effort of the Germans at Ver
dun, the French effort in Champagne
and the British effort at Neuve Cha
pelle and Loos convince many mili
tary circles that the feat is impos
sible. His first operation, carried out
without a hitch and unknown to the
Germans, was the taking over of the
trenches occupied in the Arras sec
tor by General Petain's army, which
was released for Verdun. This gave
the British an intact front of about
100 miles, and was decided upon by
the allied commanders as wiser
than a premature British offensive in
the mire and bog of the flat country
of Flanders and northern France.
Date is Set for the
One-Day Trade Trip
Friday of this week, July 7, has
been selected as the day for conduct
ing the one-day automobile trade trip
from Omaha to David City and in
tervening points. This is the trip
which was postponed some days ago
on account of a heavy rain, which put
the roads in bad condition. About
fifteen or twenty automobiles are to
take part in this trip. The crowd is
to start from the Commercial club
corner at Fourteenth and Farnam
streets at 7 o'clock in the morning.
TAFT AND HUGHES
Former President and Repub
, lican Nominee Discuss
WILLING TO TAKE STUMP
Military Officials Redouble
Precautions to Guard the
Bridgehampton. N. Y., July I.
Charles E. Hughes discussed the com
ing political campaign for two hours
today with William H. Taft. Over a
luncheon at the republican presiden
tial nominee's temporary summer
home here, the former president and
Mr. Hughes took up the chief issues
of the day and went over the tenta
tive campaign plans. Mrs. Hughes
presided at the luncheon and partici
pated in the discussion.
Apparently the time was too short
for a full exchange of opinions, for
after the conference was over and
Mr. Taft stood waiting at the rail
road station for his train, Mr. Hughes
drew him aside for a final word. They
walked out of earshot of the little
group that had surrounded them and
continued in confidential conversation
emphasized by earnest gestures until
the train pulled in.
Taft In Good Humor.
Mr. Taft appeared to be in excel
lent humor as he alighted from the
automobile in which the nominee had
accompanied him to the station.
"I am for Judge Hughes." he said.
"I want to see him elected, and shall
do all I can to assist him."
"Will you take the stump for him?"
some one asked.
"I shall obey orders," he replied.
"Monday I shall go to Murray Bay,
Canada, for three months. When I
return I shall help all I can."
"After Mr. Tail's train had left,
Mr. Hughes dictated this statement:
' "I have wanted for some time to
meet Judge Taft and have an oppor
tunity of going over matters with
him. He was kind enough to come
down here and we have had a very
full talk and I enjoyed it very much.
