Ex-President Lectures on "The
World Movement. "
UNIVERSITY AULA THRONGED
Modern Civilization Is Compared With
That of Former Ages Speaker Is
Hopeful for the Future of
Berlin. Uoforo nn nudlcnco of
learned men and officials of high
mnrlt , Theodore Roosevelt lectured
Thursday In the University of Berlin.
Every seat In the nula wan occupied ,
and many hundreds of requests for
admission had to ho denied. The ills-
Unfinished American was Introduced
to his hearers by the rector of the
university. Ills subject was "The
World Movement , " and ho spoke in
English Instead of In German ns he
at one time Intended.
Beginning with nn eloquent eulogy
of the German race and Its achlovo-
incuts , the lecturer soon reached the
main thetnu of his discourse , and reviewed
viewed the civilization and culture , so
far as wo know them , of the earliest
peoples and their contributions to the
modern world. He then continued :
Modern Movement Begins. \
At Inat , n little over 401 yours
iiffo , tlio movf-mml towards n world civili
zation took up Its Intelrupluil inarch. The
IjL'KiiuiliiK of tlio model n movement may
rotiBlily bo taken ns synchronizing wltli
the discovery of printing , nml with tlmt
series of bold pea ventures which culmi
nated In tlio dlscoviry of Atncrlea ; nnd
after these two ep'orlml feats hail begun
to produce their full Directs In material
and Intellectual life. It became Inevitable
that civilization should thereafter differ
not only In degree but even In It I ml from
nil tlmt had KOIIO before. Immediately
after the voynso of Columbus nntl Vasco
dn Gntn.a there bcijnn n tremendous re-
lUv'oiiB ferment ; the awakening of Intel
lect went hand In hand with the moral
uprising : the Krcnt names of Copernicus.
Druno , Kepler , nnd Gnl'leo show that the
mind of man wai breaking the fetters
that had cramped It : and for the first
time experimentation was used ns n check
upon observation nnd theorlzatlon. Since
then , century by century , the changes
hnvo Increased In rnp'dlty and complox-
Itv. and hnvo attained their maximum In
both respects during the century Just
Instead of bplnt ; directed by one or two
dominant peoples , as was the case with
nil similar movements of the pnst , the
new movement was shared by miny dif
ferent nations , From every standpilnt It
has been of Infinitely greater moment
than anything h'therto ' seen. Not In one
but In manv different peoples there ban
been extraordinary growth In wealth , In
population , In power of organization , nm'
In mastery over mo han'oal activity nnd
natural resources. All of this has been
ncrompan'ed nnd s'gnal'zcd bv nn Im
mense outburst of energy and restless
Initiative. The result Is varied ns It Is
Conquest of the World.
In the first place , representatives of thin
civilization , by thc'r conquest of spice ,
were enabled to spread Into nil the prac
tically vacant continents , while at tbe
same time , bv their trlump'ii In organiza
tion nnd mechanical Invention , thcv no-
qulre'l nn unheird-of m'lltarv ' superiority
as compared w'th their former rivals. To
these two facts Is prlm'ir'ly due the
further fact that for the flrst time there
Is renllv something tlmt approaches n
world civilization , n world movement. The
eprcnd of HIP Kurnnnnn poop'es s'nne ' the
flays of Ferdinand the Catholic nnd Ivan
the Tcnlble bos been across every non
and over everv continent. In places the
comments have been e'bnlc : tlmt Is. thorp
hns been a new wandering of tlio peoples
nnd new commonwealths have sprung up
In which the penn'o are entirely or m-lln-
ly of European blood. This Is whnt Imp
pprjetl In the teiv > r pr"\te aid sub trip'.cal '
rcg'ons of the V'estern Ilem'sp ere , In
Ausl-al'a ' , In portions of northern As'n '
and southern Afr'cn. In other places the
conquest hns been purelv p"lltlonl. the
Uuroneans representing for the most part
rporMv n small cnsto of snldlors and ml-
mln'strators , ns In most of tropical Asia
and Mr'ea nnd In mii"h of trnp'onl Amer
ica , Vlnnllv. here nnd there Instances oc-
ct'r where there 1ms been no conquest nt
all. but where nn nl'en ' people Is profound
ly nnd radically changed by the mere Im
pact of western civilization.
. There are ot course many grades be-
I tween these different types of Innuendo ,
but the net outcome of what bus occurred
dur'ng ' the lost four centuries Is tlmt civi
lization of the Kuropoan type now exer-
e'ses ' a more or less profound effect over
practically the entire world. There are
noo'-n nnd corners to which It has not ye *
penetrated ; but there Is nt present no
large spnco of territory In which the BAII-
eral movement of civilized nctlvity flop *
not maVo Itself moro or less felt. This
represents something wholly difTrrcn'
from what haw ever hitherto been seen

Conquest Over Nature.
The conoiicst over nature has Included
nn pv'rionl'nnrv ' Increase In ovcrv form
of knowledge of the world wo live In , nnd
nlso nn extraordinary Inr-roanc In the pow
er of utilizing for-cs of nature. In both
d'roctlons the advance has been very
great dur'ng ' the past four or ( Ivo cen
turies , nnd In Imlh d'reetlons It has gone
on with ever Increasing rnpld'ty during
Mic last contunf. After the great ngo of
Uomu hnd passed , the boundaries of
knowledge fihrnn' ' ' . nnd In manv cases It
was not until well-n'gh our own times
that her domain was once ngnln pushed
beyond the nnclent landmarks. About the

In the dnvs of PI'ny. ' than was known or

A hundred years ngo , when this uni

lontlnls from what they had been among

Travelers and morclmnd'so wont bv land

One Danger of Civilization.
One of the prime dangers of clvll'zntlon
has nhxnys been Its tendency to cause
M'o loss of the vlrllo fighting virtues , of
the fighting edge. When men get too com-
ortnblo nnd lend too luxurious lives th"ro
's nlwavs danger lest the softness eat ll' < o
n nold Into their mnnl'ness of flbpr Tbe
bnrbnrlnn , because of the very conditions
of h's ' life. Is forced to keep and develop
"ertnln hardy nunlltleH which the man of
"Ivll'zat'on ' tends to lose , whether be be
lerV. factory hand , mercl'nnt. or even n
"ertnln type of farmer. Now I will n t
opsert tlmt In modern civilized society
Miese tendencies hnvo been wholly over
come : but there hns been u much more
Hucccssful effort to overcome thorn flmn
" as the cnse In the earlv civilizations.
This Is curiously shown by the military
history of tbe Grapcn-Unman period ns
"oimvired w'th ' the h'story of the list four
or Ove cpntitrles I'pre In Hunpe and
Ttnoni ; nations of Huropenn descent. In
he Grecian and Unman military h'stnry
ho change was stead'ly from a ettlr.en
Miny to nn nrmv of mercennjlrs. In the
Oavs of the early Rroatupss of Athens.
Thebp.s , nnd Pnarta In HIP davs when the
Umniin rpptibllc connuered what world It
' 'new , the nrmles were filled with citizen
" Idlers. I5vit gradually Iho citizens re
fused to nerve In the armies , or became
unable to render good service. The OreeU
states descr'l'etl by Pnlyblus. with but few
exceptions , hired others to do their tt'jht-
'tig for them. The Unmans of the < lavs of
Augustus had utterly ceased to furnish
anv ca\alrv. npd were rap'dly ceasing to
furn'sh ' nnv Infantiy , to the legions an'O
cohorts. When the civilization came to
in end. there were no longer c'tlzons In
the ranks of the soldiers. Thu change
from the citizen army to the army of
mtrcenar'es hnd been completed.
Modern Citizens' Armies.
Now. the exact reverse has been the
nse with us In modern tltnoi. A few
"cnturlcs ago the mercenary soldier ws
the principal figure. In most armies , and In
; reat numbers of caseH the mercenary
soldier was an alien. In the wars of re-
I'Klnn In Franco , In the Th'rty Years'
nnr In Germany. In the wars that Immc-
llately marked the bentnnlni ? of the
Voak-up of the Kreat Polish Kingdom , the
rcKlments and br'Rades of foreign HO !
Hers foimed n striking and lead'nc fea-
ur < > In everv army. Too often the men
if the country In which the lUhtln ? took
ilaoe plaved merely the Ignoble part of
victims , the burghers and peasants up
pciirlnu In but limited nunibcts In the
mercenary nrmten by wh'ch they were
plundered , Gradually thin hns all changed ,
until now practically every nrmy la a
citizen nrmy , nnd the mercenary has nl-
mart disappeared , while the nrmy exists
on n vaster scale than ever before In his
tory. This IB no among the military mon
archies of Europe.
In our own Civil war of the United
States the same thins occurred , peaceful
people ns we are. At tlmt time moro thnn
two generations hnd passed tdnco the
War of Independence. During the whole
of that period the people had been en
gaged In no llfe-nnd-dcath struggle ; and
yet , when the Civil wnr broke out , and
nfter some costly nnd bitter lessons nt
the beginning , the fighting spirit of the
people was shown to better advantage
thnn ever before. The war was peculiar
ly n war for n principle , a war wnscd
by each side for nn Ideal , nnd while faults
and shortcomings were plentiful nmong
the combntnnts , there was comparatively
little sordldncsH of motive or conduct. In
nuch n glnnt struggle , where ncrosa the
warp of so many Interests Is ohot the
woof of so many purposes , dark strands
and bright , strands Bomber and brilliant ,
nro nlwnys Intertwined ; Inevitably there
wns corruption hero nnd there In the Civil
wnr ; but nil the leaders on both sides ,
nnd the grcnt mnjorlly of the enormous
masses of fighting men , wholly disre
garded , nnd were wholly uninfluenced by ,
Wealth and Politics.
Another striking contrast In the course
of modern civilization no compared with
the Inter singes of the Graoco-ttomnn or
classic civilization Is to bo found In the
rolntlons of wealth nnd politics. In clas
sic times , ns the clvll'zntlon advanced to
ward Its zenith , polltlca became a recog
nized means of accumulating grout
wealth. Catsnr was again nnd again on
the verge of bankruptcy ; ho spent nn
enormous fortune ; nnd ho recouped him
self by the money which ho mnde out of
his polltlcnl-mllltnry cnrccr. Augustus ca-
tnblltthod Imporlnl Rome on firm founda
tions by the use ho mnde of the hugo
fortune ho had ncqu'rcd by plunder. Whnt
n contrast Is offered by the careers of
Washington and Lln-oln ! There were n
few exceptions In Jinc'cnt ' days ; but the
'mmciiso mnjor'ty of the Greeks nnd the
Romans , ns their civilizations culminated ,
ncccptcd monoy-mnklng on n largo scale
ns ono of the Incidents of n successful
public career. Now nil of this Is In s'inrp '
contrast to what has happened within
the last two or three centuries. Ddrlng
this time there has been n steady growth
nwny from the theory tlmt money-mnklns
Is permissible In nn honorable public ca
In this respect the Btnndard Ima been
constantly elevated , and things which
statesmen had no hesitation In doing
three ccntur'es or two centuries ngo. nnd
which did not seriously hurt n public ca
reer oven a century ago , nro now utterly
Impossible. Wcnlthy men still exorcise u.
Inrpre. nnd sometimes an Improper. Influ
ence In politics , but It Is apt to bo nn In
direct Influence : nnd In the ndvnnced
stntes the mere susp'clon that the wealth
of public men Is obtnlncd or added to as
nn Incident of their public careers will
bar them from public life. Speaking
generally , wcnlth may very greatly Inllu
ence modern political life , but It Is not ac
quired In political life.
Optimistic for the Future.
Mr. Roosevelt callsd attent'on to
the fact that hitherto every civiliza
tion that has arisen has been able to
develop only a few activities , Its field
of endeavor being limited in kind as
well as in locality , and each of these
civilizations has fallen. What is the
lesson to us of today ? he asked. Will
the crash come , and bo all the more
terrible because of the immcnso in
crease In activities and area ? To this
ho replied :
Porsonnlly. I do not bol'cve that our
clvll'zation ' will fall. I think that on the
whole wo hnve grown better and not
worse. I think that on the whole the fu
ture holds more for us thnn ovoji tbe
erent past has held. But , nssuredl'v. the
dreams of golden glory In the future will
not come true unless , high of heart nnd
strong of hand , by our own mighty deeds
wo make them como true. We cannot af
ford to develop nnv one sot of qualities ,
nny ono set of nctlv'tlcs , at the cost of
seeing others , equally necessary , atro
phied. Neither the mllltnrv efficiency of
the Mongol the extraordinary business
nb'lltv of the Phoenlclnn. n ° r the subtle
nnd pol'shed Intellect of the Greek availed
to nvort destruction.
We. the men of today and of the fu
ture , need many nunlltles If wo nrc to do
our work well. We need , first of nil and
most Imp r'ant of nil , the qualities which
s and nt the base of Individual of family
l'fe. ' tl'e fundamental nnd essential quali
ties the homely , every-day , nil-Important
vlr'ues. If the average man will not
work. If he hns not In him the will nnd
the power to bo a good husband and fa
ther ; If the average woman Is not a good
housewife n good mother of many
healthy children , then the stnte will top
ple , will tro down , no matter what may
be Its brMlan"e ! of artistic development
or mntorlnl achievement. Hut these home
ly qualities nre not enough. There must ,
In addition , be that power of organization ,
that power of wor'Mng ' In common for a
common end , wh'ch the German people
hnvo shown In such signal fashion during
the last half-century. Moreover , the
things of the sp'rlt nro even more Impor-
tnnt than the things of the bodv. We can
well do without the hard Intolerance nnd
arid Intellectual barrenness of what was
worst In the theological systems of the
past , but there has never been a greater
need of n high nnd fine religious sp'rlt '
than at the present time. So. while wo
cnn laugh good-humoredly nt some of
the piotonslona of modern philosophy In
Its vnrious branches , It would bo worse
than folly on our part to Ignore our need
of Intellectual leadership.
Must Steer Middle Course.
Never hns philanthropy. humanitarianIsm -
Ism , soon such development ns now. nnd
though we must nil bewnre of the folly
and the vlclousness no worse than folly , |
wbl"h nmrl's the believer In the perfec
tibility of man when his heart runs nway
with his bead , or when vnnlty usurps the
plnce of cons lence , yet we must remem
ber nlso tlmt It Is only by working nlong
the lines laid down by the ph'lanthrop'sts. '
by the lovers of mankind , that we can
be sine of lifting our civilization to a
higher and more permanent p'ano of well-
be'ng than wns over attained by any preceding -
ceding clvll'znt'on. Unjust war Is to bo
nbhorrrd : but woe to the nation tin ! does
not mnko ready to hold Its own In time
of need ngnlnst nil who would harm It :
and oe thrice over to the nnMon In
which the average man loses the fighting
edge , loses the power to servo ns u sol-
d'er If the dav of need should nr'se.
It Is no Impossible drenm to build up n
civilization In which morality , ethlcn' de
velopment , nnd a true feellny of brother
hood shall nllko be divorced from false
rentimontallty. nnd from the rancorous
nnd evil passions which , curiously enough ,
BO often nccompanv professions of senti
mental nttiifhrnent to the rights of man ;
In which n high material development In
the things of the body shall be achieved
without subordination of the things of
the soul : In which there shall be n genu
ine des're for pence and Justice without
loss of those virile qualities without which
no love jpf peace or justice slmll nvnll any
race ; In' wh'cb the fullest development of
scientific research , the great distinguish
ing feature of our present clvllUatlon ,
shnll yet not Imply n belief that Intellect
can o\er take the place of character for.
'rom the standpoint of the nation ns of
the Individual It Is character that la the
ono vital possession.
