dent Wilson in a. speech at the peace
conference, already subject of'Videly
published controrcj-sjr between bim
and Senator Spencer of Missouri, de
clared "that if any covenants of "tin's
settlement are not observed the
United States will seqd her armies
and navies to see that they are ob
served,'! Senator Borah of Idjjho as
serted in an address here tonight
"The controversy between Senator
- Spencer and the president has been
interesting," said Senator Borah,
"not so much because it may illus
rf , Irate the fallibility of memory, but be
. Cause ifshows how -this league looks
when ou begin to vtew it in its
. " practical workings. The moment you
,descend from the opalescent ,em
'w nvrean of theories to the wond of
concrete things it looks althogcther
different. So iong as you confine
' yourself to the league on paper arid
dwell in the world ot rhetoric every
v thine seems well. v s
"But. when you get down to the
actual- workings' qf the league ' it
seems harsh and autocratic and al
together objectionable. Whtfi they
tell us that the league will bring
f peace, everybody wants peace and
s so favors the league. But when you
' turn from theory to .fact and see it
obligates us to send par hoys across
the sea, it creates art uproar ot dis
approval and . hasten s explanation
and denials. Yet that' 1 pre:isely
what, the league iar its practical
workings means. " J
" Charges Sustained.
"TbTe are two thfhgs -stated in
he speech President Wilson put out
as authoritative, which sustain every
charge 'we have ever madcagainst
this gigantic autocracy based 'on
force. The first1 Statement reads as
follows: '" ..if '
K" ,v'And back of that lies the funda-
- mental and important fact that when
the decisions are madc jhe allied and
associated powers guarantee to main
tain them.' . --
"Ho ware you going to maintain
v jthem except by sending the army
land the navy across vthe sea? We
have first the( solemn guarantee of
the allied and associated- powers to
( ' maintain all decisions and all boun
daries, .As to, how we are going to
do this is answered by the president
himself in another place in the same
' speechj in which he sys: 'If any
covenants of this Settlement are not
observed, the United States will send
her arpties and , navies 5to, see that
they -are observed. We must not
, close'dtir eyes to the fact that in the
last analysis the military and naval
strength of the great powers will be
the final guarantees of the peace of
v - .the world.' r
Under Moral Obligation.
"When' the president was before
tt ,thVIofcetgn relations committee Sen
ator Knox asked this question: 'Sup
pose that it is perfectly obvious that
- there '''is an, external aggression
against, somfc power and - suppose it
is perfectly obvious ana accepted
- T that it cannot be lepelled except by
- force of arms, would, we. be under
, any legal obligation to participate?'
'The president replied to this: 'No,
sir, but we would be under an abso
lutely compelling moral obligation!'
- "I take it that it will not makV
. very much difference to the Ameri

Since-July 15, when trading in fu

ator declared that grain speculators
have sold or' oversold this year's
crop five or six times. Only about
1 per cent of the 'trading in futures
is a bona fide transaction for actual
delivery, he asserted.
Because the speculators are forc
ing down the price of wheat, the
senator asserted, "the farmer, .who
sold his hogs' and cattle at a heavy
less while meat 'still .sells for' war
prices, is again made the goat, and
the wheat- raiser, whose crop this

Lin, governor of Feng-Tiehf has
overthrown the- Peking government
and proclaimed va monarchy, accord;
ihg to a- rumor current hi this city;
This rumor has not hen authentica
ted and no details have beena-eceived
here, but Chinese officials bave bvn
profoundly stirred by it.
Gen. Chang Tsao-Lin wjas prob
ably the strongest military leader
during the recent ChuyAnfu Conflict.
He played a leading part during that
trouble and was accused pf being a
tool of the Japanese.

It is the supposition .here that thfe
coup, if it really has tdken place, is
an effort to restore to the throne foc
pier Emperor Hsuan-Tung, son of
General Lishan, commander of
Chinese government troops in the
provinces "of Kiangsu and Kiangsi
and leader of a powerful political
clique, committed suicide in Nan
king today by shooting himself. The
text of his will declared his action
was due to developments at -Peking
and the failure of measures he had
advocated for the "salvation or the
nation." Half of the gerteral's for
tune of many millions ot yen- were
left to carry on tncwpric or lamme
relief and education. His death, it
is believed, will have far-reaching
political results., ' , '
; No Other Reports. .
In' connection with the lack- of
authentification of the Shanghai
rumor of "the Peking overturn, the
lact may be noted that last night a
message was received from The As
sociated Press correspondent in
Peking dated October 12, the same
date as that on which the Shanghai
cablegram was sent. The Peking
message contained no hint of any
governmental complications. '
The president of the Chinese re
public is Hsu Shih-Chang, who was
elected in August, 1918, and in
augurated in October of that year.
The cabinet, formed August H 6i
this year,, is headed by General
