considered, America has done most to
develop a, nobio standard of " social
jUBtico in national and international;
affairs. .It is the fashion to sneer at
ntheVdramer. .But tnoidealistniay
Jbe a piost , practical, man. r It isw the

jatlve engineeh
sv "There is reason to believe that the
Jideals of social peace are speedily be
jing realized. It .is tim,e thatPthe open
ing words -of '' the president of the
Hague Corifprence were expressive of,
JthiB Ideal. But this genlleman was a
Russian and the peace idea is essen
I ilally democratic, We must rem'ombor
jthat the phantasies of .today are. the
ifealitles of tomorrow.
"In this peace movement America
has done her full sharp. Her repre
sentatives have labored to harmonize
international law, to institute some do
gree of sincerity in the diplomatic af
fairs of nations, and to establish the
Geneva tribunal. America contributed
far the most of the triumphs of the
Hague conferences. She has had a
host of peace exponents among them,
Roger Williams, Thomas Jefferson and
Theodore Roosevelt.
"From our own diplomatic dealings
we have learned the valuo of the
'square deal' in international affairs.
The idea of a cannon to preserve
peace is not correct. -AH that iBf need
ed Is a righteous government and high
national character. j
"I, too, indulge in a dream. What ifj
America shall become a leader and1,
carry forward the idea of peace until
its ideal Is accomplished? At this vbry!
moment the voters of the nation are
massing themselves into; two' great
'camps. "I canhotpropJwyathQ jesult
but I feel that if the whole people ex
press their deBlre they will call to
'the presidential chair the-most prac
tical dreamer of social dreams."
Mr: Bryan was last on the program.'
As he rose to speakt be was given -a;
most generous ovation by the eighteen)
hundred students. He said: i
"The idea of universial peace is
growing. I am as Bure of the coming
of the day of peace as I am of the rls
Ing of tomorrow's sun. Since the day
of Chrlst-the two ideas, peace and'
war, have been in combat Where
there is life there is motion and the,
world Is moving forward in every way.,
"The standard of Intelligence is
rising in every nation. Education is
going rapidly forward in China, Japan,
the Philippines, and even in Moham
medan countries, ,so long domantr
"Popular government is spreading.;
The trend in this direction is irrestl

"The World Is undergoing a great
moral awakening. There is a quick-1
ening of public conscience and a study
ing of questions of justice. The causo
of peace is in a lino with the theory
of popular government. It is demo
cratic; it is ethical; it is moral; it is
"If all this is true: if there Is an
awakening intelligence, if there is a
spread of popular government, if there
1b a pressing on toward higher ideals
of justice and morality; then .who
can doubt that we are moving toward
arbitration rather than force; A mor-
