ROOSEVELT SPEAKS BEFORE
NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE
Lecture on 'International Peace" Is Delivered
- in Christiania Ways in Which the
Cause May Be Advanced Are
Christiania. "International Peace"
was the fitting topic selected by CoL
Theodore Roosevelt for his lecture be
fore the Nobel prize committee, which
was delivered here Thursday. A large
and distinguished audience listened to
the man to whom was awarded the
Nobel peace prize for bringing about
peace between Japan and Russia. Mr.
It Is with peculiar pleasure that I
stand here today to express the deep
appreciation I feel of the high honor
conferred uroii me by the presenta
tion of the Nrbel peace prize. The
gold medal which formed part of the
prize I shall always kep, and I shall
hand it on to my children as a precious
heirloom. The sum of money provided
as part of the prize by the wise gen
erosity of the illustrious founder of
this world-famous prize system, I did
not, under the peculiar circumstances
of the case, feel a liberty to keep. I
think it eminently just and proper
that In most cases the recipient of the
prize should keep for his own use the
prize in its entirety. But in this
case, while I did not act officially as
president of the United States, it was
nevertheless only because I was pres
ident that I was enabled to act at all;
and I felt that the money must be
considered as having been given me
In trust for the United States. I there
fore used It as a Nucleus for a founda
tion to forward the cause of indus
trial peace, as being well within the
general purpose of your committee;
for in our complex Industrial civiliza
tion of today the peace of righteous
ness and justice, the only kind of
peace wortn navmg, is at least as
necessary in the industrial world as
it is among nations. There is at
least as much need to curb the cruel
greed and arrogance of part of the
world of capital, to curb the cruel
greed and violence of part of the
world of labor, as to check a cruel
and unhealthy militarism in interna
When Peace May Be Evil.
We must ever bear in mind that the
great end in view is righteousness,
justice as between man and man, na
tion and nation, the chance to lead
our lives on a somewhat higher level,
with a broader spirit of brotherly good
will one for another. Peace is gen
erally good in itself, but it is never
the highest good unless it comes as
the handmaid of righteousness; and it
becomes a very evil thing if it serves
merely as a mask for cowardice and
sloth, or as an instrument to further
the ends of despotism or anarchy.
We despise and abhor the bully, the
brawler, the oppressor, whether in
private or public life; but we despise
no less the coward and the voluptu
ary. No man is worth calling a man
who will not fight rather than submit
to Infamy or see those that are dear
to him suffer wrong. No nation de
serves to exist if it permits itself to
lose the stern and virile virtues; and
this without regard to whether the
loss is due to the growth of a heart
less and all-absorbing commercialism,
to prolonged indulgence in luxury and
soft effortless ease, or to the deifica
tion of a warped and twisted senti
mentality. Moreover, and above all, let us re
member that words count only when
they give expression to deeds or are
to be translated into them.
Now, having freely admitted the
limitations to our work, and the qual
ifications to be borne in mind, I feel
that I have the right to have my
words taken seriously when I point
out where, in my judgment, great ad
vance can be made in the cause of in
ternational peace. I speak as a prac
tical man, and whatever I now advo
cate I actually tried to do when I was
for the time being the bead of a great
nation, and keenly jealous of its hon
or and interest. I ask other nations
to do only what I should be glad to
see my own nation do.
Treaties of Arbitration.
The advance can be made along
several lines. First of all there can
be treaties of 'arbitration. There are,
of course, states so backward that a
civilized community ought not to en
ter Into an arbitration treaty with
them, at least until we have gone
much farther than at present In se
curing some kind of international po
lice action. But all really civilized
communities should have effective ar
bitration treaties among themselves.
I believe that these treaties can cover
almost all questions liable to arise be
tween such nations, if they are drawn
with the explicit agreement that each
contracting party will respect the oth
er's territory and absolute sovereignty
More Trouble for Bystanders.
That helpless shuttlecock of whim
sical fortune, the innocent bystander,
is threatened with a new peril. At
an aviation meet the other day. while
he was sheltered by his tonneau roof
tree, surrounded by his loved ones
and several favored guests, a runaway
flying machine, with every appearance
of -vicious forethought, hastily dropped
Itself on the bystander's automobile,
smashing the machine and tumbling
its occupants Into the highway.
And now what's the bystander going
to do? Is he to be crushed to earth,
like truth, by every tumbling air bug
who thinks himself an aviator? Is he
to be rudely mussed up by planes and
motors and steering gears? Can't he
take a little atmosphere In his garden
without finding himself driven Into
the ground by the beak of a diving air
No self-respecting citizen win be
willing to keep under cover just to
avoid being told to look out below
Life can't be transformed Into a
series of shelter sheds in order to keep
falling biplanes from being mussed up
within that territory, and the equally
explicit agreement that (aside from
the very rare cases where the nation's
honor is vitally concerned) all other
possible subjects of controversy will
be submitted to arbitration. Such a
treaty should Insure peace until one
party deliberately violated it. Of
course, as yet there Is no adequate
safeguard against such deliberate vio
lation, but the establishment of a
sufficient number of these treaties
would go a long way towards creating
a world opinion which would finally
find expression in the provision of
methods to forbid or punish any such
Work of Hague Tribunal.
Secondly, there is the further de
velopment of The Hague tribunal, of
the work of the conferences and courts
at The Hague. It has been well said
that the first Hague conference
framed a Magna Cbarta for the na
tions; It set before us an ideal which
has already to some extent been real
ized, and towards the full realization
of which we can all steadily strive.
The second conference made further
progress: the third should do yet
more. Meanwhile the American gov
ernment has more than once tenta
tively suggested methods for com
pleting the court of arbitral justice,
constituted at the second Hague con
ference, and for rendering It effective.
It is earnestly to be hoped that the
various governments of Europe, work
ing with those of America and of
Asia, shall set themselves seriously to
tne task of devising some method
which shall accomplish this result. If
I may venture the suggestion, it would
be well for the statesmen of the
world, in planning for the erection of
this world court, to study what has
been done in the United States by the
Supreme court. I cannot help think
ing that the Constitution of the Uni
ted States, notably in the establish
ment of the Supreme court and in the
methods adopted for securing peace
and good relations among and be
tween the different states, offers cer
tain valuable analogies to what should
be striven for In order to secure,
through The Hague courts and confer
ences, a species of world federation
for international peace and justice.
Undue Growth of Armaments.
In the third place, something should
be done as soon as possible to check
the growth of armaments, especially
naval armaments, by international
agreement. No one power could or
should act by itself; for its Is eminent
ly undesirable, from the standpoint of
the peace of righteousness, that a
power which really does beffeve In
peace should place itself at the mercy
of some rival which may at bottom
have no Buch belief and no intention
of acting on it. But, granted sin
cerity of purpose, the great powers of
the world should find no insurmount
able difficulty in reaching an agree
ment which would put an end to the
present costly and growing extrava
gance of expenditure on naval arma
ments. An agreement merely to limit
the size of the ships would have been
very useful a few years ago, and would
still be of use; but the agreement
should go much further.
Finally, it would be a master stroke
If those great powers honestly bent on
peace would form a league of peace,
not only to keep the peace among
themselves, but to prevent, by force If
necessary, its being broken by others.
The supreme difficulty In connection
with developing the peace work of
The Hague arises from the lack of any
executive power, of any police power
to enforce the decree of the court.
In any community of any size the au
thority of the courts rests upon actual
or potential force; on the existence of
a police, or on the knowledge that the
able-bodied men of the country are
both ready and willing to see that the
decrees of judicial and legislative
bodies are put into effect. In new and
wild communities where there is vio
lence, an honest man must protect
himself; and until other means of se
curing his safety are devised, it Is
both foolish and wicked to persuade
him to surrender his arras while the
men who are dangerous to the com
munity retain theirs. He should not
renounce the right to protect himself
by his own efforts until the commu
nity is so organized that it can effec
tively relieve the Individual of the
duty of putting .-'own violence. So It
is with nations. Each nation must
keep well prepared to defend Itself un
til the establishment of some form
of international police power, compe
tent and willing to prevent violence as
Purity Is a desirable quality, espe
cially in human beings. Half the
world doesn't know how the other hall
wants it to possess purity. There
are two kinds: Bodily purity and
mental purity. Statistics upon the
lack of the former are more volu
minous than upon the lack of the lat
ter. Tuberculosis and appendix talk
seems to Indicate that bodily impurity
is, to say the least, prevalent or
would It be better to say that bodily
purity is imprevalent!
But, in dealing with Impurities of
the mind, we cannot be so sure, be
cause people will not 'fess up. We
simply have to guess, and that's where
Mme. Grundy comes in. We never
know whether Mme. Grundy is right
or wrong, bat. siting up the rest
of the world In the light of our own
impurities, we continue to listen to
her and cannot dowa the conclusion
that she Is about half right, and that's
what makes us so aud. Nor Is It
likely that a pure thought law would
do much good.

ADVISES FOR PEACE
THE ADDRESS OF COL. ROOSt
VELT AT CHRISTINIA,
ROYALTY APPLAUDS SPEECH
Suggests Fore to Prevent Warfare
and Proposes a Pact That Will
Keep Nations Prom Fighting.
Christinia. Notwithstanding an oc
casional giving way of the voice. The
odore Roosevelt made a deep impres
sion on the audience which gathered
Thursday in the National theater to
hear his address on "International
Peace" before the Nobel prize com
mittee. It was described by the mem
bers of the committee as the most no
table assembly since the Nobel prize
King Haakon and Queen Maude
were present, as we!! as all the mem
bers of the government, who occupied
seats on the stage and the entire par
liamentary body, among whom was
Miss Rogstad, the first woman to be
elected to the Norwegian Storthing.
The overture by the orchestra at
the opening of the session was spe
cially composed by the royal band
master. Johann Halverson, who dedi
cated It to Mr. Roosevelt. The theme
embodied the "Star Spangled Ban
ner," Norse folk songs and melodies.
The stage was bordered with flowers
and no Norwegian flag was visible,
only the stars and stripes as a spe
The audience stood up when the
king and queen and Mrs. Roosevelt
took seats in the royal box. They
arose again when Mr. Roosevelt en
tered from the back of the stage, es
corted by J. G. Leevland, former pre
mier and chairman of the Nobel prize
committee. Mr. Leevland introduced
Mr. Roosevelt, who read his speech.
From time to time, however, he de
parted from the text to repeat In the
same words or in somewhat different
words the ideas he had just ex
pressed. Before taking up the subject
of his official address Mr. Roosevelt
spoke of the late Bjornstjerne Bjorn
son. "I wish to pronounce a tribute." he
said, "to the great Norwegian who
has just died (the whole bouse arose
and stood with bowed heads for a
moment) whose death leaves a gap in
the literature of the whole world."
He alluded to Bjornson as a man
who bad always stood for the right
as he conceived the right to be.
As Mr. Roosevelt proceeded with
bis address the Norwegians comment
ed one to another on the resemblance
between the former president to
Bjornson to the same style of public
speaking, to the same favorite ges
ture with the clinched hand.
The address was broken by abun
dant applause, in which tho king
joined. At its conclusion the queen
stood and joined the audience in giv
ing nine short cheers for Roosevelt.

Washington. Forty-five senators,
