a dignified and
'scharly address, whilo Mr. Wobstor;
jwho Is widely known for his ability
sb a speaker, waB at times brilliant
in his characterization of times and
Judgo Frost dwelt principally upon
tho relation of the United States to
the South American republics. He
said in part:
"Tho world is coming to recognlzo
the necessity for peace. The .broad
principles oMustlce and morality de
mand it For this reason the world
has felt that International law could
and would not meet the demands
made upon it To assist it In effect
ing and solving tho great questions
that constantly arise, there was called
about ton years ago, at The Hague, a
tribunal to weigh, these matters and
seek to put Itself upon a substantial
baBlB; and it succeeded in establish
ing this end, for it set a precedent
that was again carried out at tho
same place some years later.
'Were Not Represented.
"In the flrBt Peaco Conference, ton
years ago, not one of the South
Amorican republics were invited to
Send representatives, but in tho last
qno all received invitations. In the
first one, and to some degree in tho
second, the nations were not willing
to go to tho length they should go in
order $o achieve tho greatest results,

latives at The Hague would not agree
tci anything ,which might be construed
as opposed' to it From Washington's
time on, our policy has been to not
peddle In the affairs of' any other na-
, tion nor to dllow any foreign colon!
zatlon in America. This has-been in
, itself a most effectual factor in, our
plitical progrjDES, apd we must not

J"Thero have been many dlvergept
opinions as to the usefulness and

increase may it be a potent - cause
for thp ultimate universal brother'
hood of man."
Mr. Webster Introduced.
Mr. Wobster was not introduced o
the audience until tho allotted time
vas nearly two-tbirds over, and so he
... . .. .
was forced to speak very rapidly III
order to finish 'his talk In time. Mr.
Wobstor has a very pleasing delivery
and was given the closest' attention
by those who heard him. Ho spoke
in part as follows:
"Universal peace is sure to come.
Through all history tinkers and
dreamers have delighted to look foe
ward to tho time when wars should
ceaBe. Tho only question to be con
sidered is how soon is all this to
"In 1899 tho first stops were taken
looking toward universal peaco, In an
swer to tho general doslro for it
which had been in existence so long.
There have been groat wars, since
then. This movement came Just at
the close of tho Spanish-American
war; a little later came tho Boor war,
and still later the Russian-Japanese
War, which was tho greatest war of
modern times. Still, in the face of all
this, we talk of universal peace and
aro confident that it will come.
"Mr. McDowell, pf lew York City,
has recently promulgated a constitu
tion which ho advocates for all tho
people of tho worldd. It has boon
said that such a constitution to be
successful must embody all the best
thought of tho ages from Mohammed
and Socrates and Plato to Washington
and Jefferson and Lincoln. The ques
tion is whether or not tho time has
come for such a movement as this.
Grows Closer Together.
"The world is growing closer to
gether and things point to a final con
summation of tho hopo of thosp who
pray for universal peace. The world
is becoming a great human family,
thinking of the samp things, talking
of tho same things and eating the
same things.
"The United States has announed
that It will protect tho South Amor
ican republics. This protection and
care will .tend to make tho rebellions
and wars that have wracked tho'con
tlnontless frequent and wo shall soon
have in the two Americas two con
tinents interested in peace "and de
voted to its preservation. Europe
has become a family of nations. Ths
telegraph and the tolophono have ren
dered impossible such wars as Na
poleon conducted on the continent
When we look to Africa we

There we find 'different races and' de

Tho baseball training Benson for
19D9, was started in p "cage!? pi tie
gymnasium Mpnday aftornoon with a
squad of fully slxy men working out
und(jr tho directions of Manager
Eager and Captain "Buck" Boltzer
of this season's nine. The men will
bo kopt at the limbering up work
until Coach Fox arrives, March 10,
and takes charge of the candidates.
Tho squad this season Is larger
than that of ' last year, which w&)
supposed to havo been the biggest
that had over reported for indoor
work at this school. It is expected
that the next weok will see many
more aspirants added. to tho list, so
that by th6 time out-of-doors work is
started that too squad will number
over 100 men.
At a mpoting of the athletic board
las.t nlgbt Manngor Eager, in a report
mado on the basket-ball season which
closed at homo for the Cornhuskors
Saturday night, showed that there
was a credit balance of about $72.
This Is the most money basket-ball
has probably over mado for the Corn
huskers. Home Games Good.
This season's profit was duo to the
attractive list dr home games which
the Nebraska five played at the arm
ory. Minnesota visited this city for
tho first time in several yoars and on
Saturday night drew an attendance of
600 people, which wob probably tho
largest crowd that over witnessed a
basket-ball game at this university.
During the season tho Cornhuskora
played eighteen games, and of this
number wore tbo victors in six. They
won tho opening contest of tho year
with Cotnor and lost the second game
of the season to tho city Y. M. ?. A.
five. Three games were played with
Kansas, two taking place at Law
rence and one at Lincoln. Tho trio
Went to tho Jayhawkers. Minnesota
was met in four games, two each at
Lincoln and Minneapolis. The Go
phers took the series. Four games
were held with .each Amos, and Drake
in the northern section of tho Mis-
sourl YaHpy Conference Jeagup. Four
of these games were piayea in Lin
coln and two each at Des 'Moines and
Ames. Botk Ames and Drake were
defeated in two contests apiece' at
Lincoln. At Ames the 'Cornhuskers
divided the pair and atrDrako Ibrfiho
two games.' Missouri was Splayed a
single game at Lincolnand was tho
victor by a narrow margin; "
Qamea in Kansas City.
Tho season for the Cornhuskors is
not yet at a close. A series of three
games for the championship of the
Missouri valley vwill have b be
played with Kansas university. These
contests win tase place in uonvenuon
hall at Kansas City, probably next'
week Tho dates have' not yet beon

On6 of the Lincoln aftornoon dallies
published a yollow story yostorday to
tho offset that, rfobrasjc and Amos
would not moot on tho gridiron noxt
fail. The story had littlo foundation1
and could hardly havo com8' farthoj'
from thp truth wlion It atatod'that
tho two teams would not hold ttiblr
annual gamo this coming season.

two months. Amppg its notablo yel
low stories were two convoying the
interesting, although .not truo, infor
mation, that Manager Eagor and
Coach .Colo would. not bo connected
with Nobraska athletics noxt season.
Tho storios had absolutely no founda

any rogard whatsoever for 'facts.
Thore Is a -"yellowness" which
pays, but It is tho "yellowness" of

Its roadors can hardly expect to bo
read as a reliable organ.
