In Presbyterian circles. Rev. Mr. Richter

forbidden the practice of clerical duties. It

The larger part of the afternoon session

thereon. An Important change In the
organisation of the board was effected by
the adoption of a brief recommendation in
the report of the standing committee on
publication and Sabbath school work. This
was to the effect that the board of pub
lication and Sabbath school work be au
thorized to reorganise itself and report
to the next assembly. Though this clause
waa passed without comment this after

PLEAD THE CAUSE OF PEACE
Conference on International Arbitra
tion Bea-aa at Lake
LAKE MOHONK. N. T., May 27.-The
Lake Mohonk conference on International
arbitration waa begun here today. The
genera topic of the first session was tht
preset!? outlook for arbitration. The open
ing address was made by John W. Foster,
formerly secretary of State. He saM:
We assemble today for the ninth annual
conference of the friends of International
arbitration under most encouraging aus
pices. Very significant events hsve taken
place since we separated at thia beautiful
spot one year ago and these events have
tended In the direction of universal oence
and have greatly strengthened the cause of
Probably the most edifying snd auspic
ious event has occurred in a quarter of the
world to which Anglo-Saxons have not been
Inclined to look for helpful examples in
food government and salutary public law.
n the extreme of the South American con
tinent there have arisen Into prominence
during the last century two prosperous and
aspiring republics. As a rule they have
sustained good administrations, maintained
excellent foreign credit and have greatly
advanced in wealth and resource. For a
time they arrayed themselves In a rivalry
for supremacy on that continent and fol
lowing the example of the greater nations
they largely Increased their armies and
navies. A controversy over a boundary
line threatened to light the torch of war
and thrust these two peaceful, prosperous
and Industrious peoples into a sanguinary
and exhausting conflict. But belter coun
sels prevailed and Chile and Argentine
agreed to submit the boundary question to
the arbitration of the king of England.
His award has been rendered and accepted
by both nations.
But that is only the beginning of the
narrative. The two nations have entered
Into a treaty whereby they agree to sub
mit all questions which cannot be settled
by diplomacy to srbitratlon. the onlv ex
ception being those Involving principles of
their constiutions. They further agreed to
stop the construction of more naval ves
sels and. to sell those which were ordered
at the time the war fever was -.-aging,
and as a result there are now in the navnl
dockyards of Europe several war vessels
of the two nations seeking customers.
They also agreed to reduce their armiea
to a peace footing snd to so maintain them
and to practically disarm their naval ves
sels at home
As a result of this disarmament, we are
Informed by recent press news from Buenos
Ay res that the minister of marine haa
tendered to the minister of agriculture two
of his unoccupied men-of-war to transport
grain and meat products to South Africa,
where the government Is seeking to open
up a new market for their superabundant
Some notice must be taken of the Vene
suelan complication, for in It there may
bo found edification for this conference.
Three of the most powerful nation of the
world combined in a hostile demonstration
against one of the feeblest of the smaller
nations. The point which I wish to em
phasise Is that the -public sentiment of
the world and especially of the British
people brought those three powerful na
tions to a halt. It Is encouraging to know
that In this era It Is not so easy to Inaugu
rate or prosecute an unjust war as it was
a century or more ago.
The Venesuela embrogllo has also served
to bring into prominence the value of ar
bitration and the utility of The Hague
tribunal. It was a high compliment to
President Roosevelt to be solicited to act
as arbitrator of that dispute. But it en
hanced h reputation still more to de
cline the offer, and to refer the contend
ing parties to the tribunal wh,lch his own'
government has done, so mt-.ch, to create.
Not the least of the events of the past'
yesr tending to peace is the treaty be
tween the governments of the united
States and Oreat Britain to refer the con
troverted question of the Alaskan bound
ary to a mixed tribunal of American and
British jurists. It is not sn arbitration,
and. from the alate of the question snd or
public sentiment in the United States. If
could not well be such. Tt is an Illustration
of the fact that even so excellent a prin
ciple aa arbitration has Its limitations In
practice. It was not possible to have se
cured a treaty to entrust, the settlement
Of the Alaskan boundary to the award of a
neutral foreign armtraior.

but it failed to receive tne approval oi
the senate largely because of this bound
ary dispute The Alaskan boundary
treaty, approved by the senate last Feo
ruary, is the method of settlement pro
vided In tne uiney-i-aunceioie i-unvtnwun.
If It shall prove effective we may have
renewed hope of seeing at no distant day
a general arbitration treaty between these
two kindred peoples, who nave a comman
heritage and a common mission In the
world. It must not be that the twin Latin
republics or Bouin . America snaii pui us
to very shame, when we are claiming to
hold aloft aj a model for all peoples our
much-vaunted Anglo-Saxon Christian civ
ilization. One of the chief objects of the
present conference is to influence public
opinion In favor of arbitration, and I
trust that one of the subjects to be dis
cussed will be the best method of creat
ing a growing and widespread sentiment
throughout the country In support of this
beneficent measure. Let . ua con
centrate our efforts in ravor oi a
general arbitration treaty oeiween tne
