Taft's Scathing Speech. Montreal. Sept. con- demnation of Ibe pacifists nnd pro- Germans In Ihe United Stales was voiced by H. Tafl, In an In- terview this morning. Tho ci-presl- dent expressed ihe conviction that IL was unfortunate that no mean a had been found of punishing such men as Lafolleite. "The pacifists nod said Mr. Taft, an eiample of the fact that persons of no Importance whatever In a time of Biress succeeded by virtue of the noise ihcy mate in gaining a great deal more attention tban they are entitled to. Tho pacifists of the United States have no significance as eipresslng the national sentiment. But li is unfortunately (rue by rfig amount of noise they .have creeled ;hey have perhaps succeeded Jn giv- ing our allies a mistaken impression 1 us as a whole, and even have- suc- ceeded In discouraging to some ex- tent Ihe deration of those ivbo are loyal." After Mr. Holmes concluded Iho re- port of the council to which Percy Atherton, of Drelori, djesenied, Mr. TafL obviously much jumped to his feel and condemned It. He call- ed It a beautiful literary effort, "but an Insidious document." Mr. Tnfi ihen moved: "That !t Is the opinion, ot this Unl- larlan conference that this war must be carrier! to a successful Issue to stamp out militarism In thts world and that this Unitarian body approves the measures of President -'Wilson nnd congress, restrictive as the? may be, and that thla resolution be sent lo President and to ihe governor- general and promler of Canada as ex- pressive of the sentiment of Ihfs body." The delegates TO Led 236 to 9 lo sus- tain the resolution. Rev. Holmes was greeted Kith the warmest applause when'he'arose to .explain tbe report. He saiiJ: "I hare failed and I am disappointed and deep- ly grieved ibal I have failed to draft a report that would express the con- structive Intention of this conference. 1 am a pacifist and 1 am a non-resist- ant. The report Is not my report or my belief. It I were writing my belief It would be quite different." An erder-Ia-councU has boea at Ottawa for the appointment ot supervisor ot metal and fibre.
