vantages of peace and as the world grows

the advantages of peace then the peoples
of the earth must be taught to appreciate
Its blessings. If the nations sincerely de
sire peace, there la scarcely a difference
that cun arise among them that cannot be
adjumed by peaceful arbitration.
Doty of Congress.
Tour duty, as that of everyone who
knows the difference between national honor
and national land lust, between true cour
age and smash-buckling. Is to convince
the world that man has a higher, nobler
nilsnlnn than to be forever at his brother's
throat: that war should he resorted to only
as a last desperate remedy for Injustice
and oppression. The task which you have
art yourselves and which can be accom
plished, la to cultivate a spirit of sober
common venae among men, a sense which
will cause them to think twice before going
to extremes and to hesitate before glorify
ing the war spirit. To such a public opinion
fovernments must bow. Putting Into prao
loe their high sounding professions or mu
tual good will they must with regard for
each other's Interests, live In harmony, one
with another.
Letter of President.
President Roosevelt's letter, read before
the congress, was as follows:
My Pear Mr. Carnegie: I much regret
my Inability to ba present with you. Mr.
Root will apeak to you at length and no
man In the country la belter fitted than
he to address you on the subject you have
so much at heart.
In this letter I can do little more than
wish you and your association Godspeed
In yur efforts. My sympathy with the
purpoeea you have at heart la both strong
and real, and by right of It I shall make
to you Mont suggest ions as to the practical
method of accomplishing the ends we all
of ua hava In view. First and foremost, I
beseech yu to remember that, though It
Is our bounden duty to work for peace, yet
it la even moie our duty to work for
righteousness and justice. It Is "rlghteous
ners that exalttth a nation," and, though
normally peace is the handmaid of right
eousness, yet If they are ever at odds, It
is righteousness whose cause we mint
espouse. In the second place, I again
earnestly ask that all good and earnest
men who believe strongly In the Cause, but
who hsvs not themselves to bear the re
sponsibility of upholding the nation's
honor shall not, by Instating on the Im
possible, put off the day when the possible
can ba accomplished.
Caution About Disarmament.
The peoples of tha world hava advanood
unequally along the road that leuils to
justice and fair dealing, but the road
stretches far ahead even of the moat ad
vanced. Harm and not good would result
if the most advanced nations should, by
agreement, disarm and place tlrennelves
at the mercy of other peoples Irss ad
vanced. Finally, It behooves alt of us to
renumber, and especially those of us who
either make or listen to speeches, that
there are tew more mischievous thines
than the custom of uttering or applauding
sentiments which represent mere oratory,
and which are not, and cannot ba and have
not been, translated fro.n words Into deeds.
An impassioned oration about pence,
which mcluJes an Impassioned demand for
something which the man who makes the
demand either knows or ought to know
' cannot, a a matter of fact, be done, rep
resent not gain, but loas for the cause
of peace: for even the noblest cause la
marred by advocacy which Is either in
sincero' or foolish.
Call fur Sane Action.
Thcaa warnings thut I hava uttered do
not u.ean thai 1 believe that we can do
nothing to advance the cause of Interna
tional peace. On tha contrary, I believe
that can do much to advance It, only we
must act with sanity, with self-restraint,
with power, which must lie the prime quali
ties in the achievement of any reform The
nineteenth century saw, on the whole, a
real u-nu groat advance In the Mandurd of
tnterutuloml conduct among civilized na
tions and strong nations toward more
backward peoples.
The twentieth century will. I believe, wit

Relation With South America.
Mr. Root's trip through South America
of self-respecting friendship of all the I
republics of this continent: It marked a I
step toward the creation among them of a j
community of public feeling which will .
tell for Justice and peace throughout tha i
western Hemisphere. Hy the Joint good of- i
tlces of Mexico and ourselves wa averted I
one war In Central America and did what I
we could to avert another, although wa :
failed. We have more than once, while 1
avoiding officious International meddling, j
shown our readiness to help other nations ;
secure peace among themeselvea. A dlf- ;
llculty which we had with our friendly
neighbor to tha south of us we solved by i
reii rring it to arbitration at The Hague. A .
difficulty which we had with our friendly i
neighbor to the north of us we solved by '
tin, air, nf a 1tlnt rnmintMltirt ftnmk !

In Interest. We try to avoid meddling In i
HUalis that ure not our concern and to
kji-a vl.w. hatrrf 'l.,r. thev m'lll nvsll !
on behalf of fair dealing and against cruelty
and oppression. We have concluded certain
arbitration treaties. I only regret that we
hava not concluded a larger number.
Proarreaa la Kxpeeted.
Our representatives will go to tha sec
ond peace conference at Tha Hague In
structed to help In every practicable way
to bring some steps nearer completion the
great work which the first conference
began. It la Idle to expect that a task so
tremendous can be settled by one or two
conferences. It Is not possible that the
conference should go further than a cer
ts in distance In tha tight direction. Tet I
believe It will make progress toward peace,
progress and fslr dealings. One ot tha
questions, though not to my mind the,
greatest, which will be brought to Con
sideration Is the question of armaments
The I'nited States, owing to Its peculiar
position, has a regulur army ao aa to be
Infinitesimal when compared with other
powers. We are no longer enlarging our
navy; wa are simply keeping up Its
Strength, very moderate, Indeed, when
compared with our wealth, population and
coaat line; for the addition of one battleship
a year barely enables us to make good the
units which become obsolete. The moat
practicable step In diminishing the burden
of expense caused by the Increasing slza
of naval armaments would. I believe, be
an agreement limiting the slse of all shins
hereafter to be built, but hitherto It has
not proved possible to get other nations to
agree with ua on this point.
Arbitration the Ileal Remedy,
Mora Important than reducing tha ex
pense of the implements of war Is the
question of reducing the possible cause of
war, which can most effectually be done
by substituting other methods than war for
the settlement of disputes. Uf those other
methods the most Important which Is now
attainable Is arbitration. I do not believe
that In the world as It actually Is, It la
possible for any nation to agree to arbi
trate all difficulties which may arise be
tween Itself and other nations, but I do
believe that there can be at this time a
large Increase in tha classes of cases which
It Is agreed ahall be arbitrated and that
provision can be made for greater facility
and certainty of arbitration. I hope to nee
adopted a general arbitration treaty among
the nut!ons, and I hope to see The Hague
court gTeatly Increased In power and
permanency, and the Judges In particular
made permanent and given adequate sal
aries, ao as to make It probnble that In
each case that m,y come before them
they will decide between the nations, great
or small, exactly aa a Judge within our
own limits decides between the Individuals
Doubtless many other matters will ba
taken up at The Hague, but It aem to me
that this question of a general arbitration
treaty Is perhaps the most Important. Sin
cerely yours, .
Address of Governor.
Governor Hughes, after voicing a formal
welcome to the congress, alluded to Presi
dent Roosevelt as "the foremost cttlten of
tha nation, the lustre of whose fams aa
president has Wa heightened by his erv
Ica aa pacificator."
Secretary Root was characterised aa "lbs
keeper of our foreign Interests, In whose
wise diplomacy every cltlxen Is assured of
tha aatute and Jealous defense of our peace
ful polities."
f peaking of tha expected era of pence,
the governor said:
The necessity of war aa a last defense ot
liberty and honor la admitted only to be
deprecated, and In the ri.'Sir to prevent
armed strife there Is almoat complete
Unanimity. We recognise that the time is
sure to come when war will be unthink
able. We can no longer look to war for
the development of either national or Indi
vidual character. If war was ever any
thing else. It Is now unmitigated horror,
exhibiting chiefly fiendish aspects of Inge
nuity and scientific skill In destruction.
Vnder our modern condlticns nf civilisation
tha supposed beneficent results of war In
the development of courage and stamina
must In any conceivable event be ahared
by so few of our teeming populations that
even the most sanguinary must realise that
the time has gone by when by any stretch
of Imagination It can be regarded aa a
general disciplinarian agent.
Wa note with satisfaction the fact that
war can now be waged only under onerous
conditions and the Increasing pressure of
economic considerations for the recognition
of the fundamental directness of the Chris
tian faith.
Andrew Carnegie Talks.
Andrew Carnegie, president of the confer
ence, said In his opening address:
We believe the psychological moment ap
proaches when a decided step forward can
be made. 1'ei PonaJly. 1 am a convert to
the League of Peace Idea the formation of
an International police, never for aggres
nlon, always for protection, to the peace
of the civilized world. It requires only the
agreement of a sufficient number of na
tions to establish this. Since the civilized
world Is now united by electric bonds Into
one body In constant and Instant commu
nication. It Is largely Interdependent and
rapidly becoming more su. War now In
volves the Interests of all, and therefore
one nation has no longer a right to break
the peace without reference to others. Na
tions hereafter eliould he asked to remem
ber this and not to resort to war, but to
settle their disputes peacefully.
beloie resulting to torce It would ba well
to begin by proclaiming non-Intercourse
with tne offending nation. No exchange of
products, no loans, no military or naval
supplies, no malls these restrictions would
serve as a solemn warning and probably
prove effective. Force should always be tha
last resort, but it should be the last.
Such nations aa supply funds and ma
terials of war to others might complain
that their Interests were unduly affected.
The maintenance of peace Is, however, al
ways the preatest Interest of Industrial na
tions because for the thousands gained from
foreign wars, millions are lost. Peace Is
the hund-muld of prosperity.
I vet us hope this plan will be submitted
to The Hhruo conference by the delegates
of our republic. Then the world will know
that America stands for peace through a
league of powers pledged to maintain It.
Would that the great peacemaker of the
future might be Theodore Roosevelt! Man
of many triumphs, this last would lift him
to the highest place In history. H" la a
bold man who ventures to forecast or limit
the horoscope of Theodore Roosevelt.
At this moment, however, It Is not In his
hands, but In those of the emperor of Ger
many, alone of all men, that the power
to abolish war seems to rest. Hie Invita
tion to form a union of nations for thli
specific purpose would result In more than
six nations gladly responding to his call.
And, as In the temporary league of nations
In China, ao In this grander league, a Ger
man general would again rightfully com
mand the allied forces. Much has been
written and said of the emperor as a men
ace to the peace of Kurope, but I think,
unjustly. Let me remind you, he has been
nearly twenty yesrs on the throne and, so
far. Is guiltless of tha shedding of blood.
No International war can be charged to
hhn. His sin hereafter may be one of
omission, since having been entrusted with
power to abolish war, he failed to rise to
this transcendent duty. Let us watch this
rosslble man of destiny, howrver, and hone
hut a vision of his true mission may be
revealed to him. A higher no man ever
had. If ever one even apnroached It In
beneficence. Were that destiny revealed, I,
for one. believe he would fulfil It. I can
not see how a mortal man could resist the
Ine rnll to ner'n-m a service so glorious.
There are no victories like those of neace.
The dav has gone by for the heroshtp of
such as kill and destroy. Millions of
Frenchmen recently vntd to determine
their greatest man. Nanoleon, the tvnleal
beeo nf barbarism, fell to seventh on tha
list: Pasteur, true hero of civilisation, was
first, and scientists end authors fallowed.
The world advances fast toward peace.

on the American sentiment of humanity.

party was In power aa long as the older
officers on th force can remember, accord
ing; to revelations made today before the
civil service commission by police officials.
Among the officers who offered this tetl
mony to the commission were Inspectors
Revere and Kelly, Captain McWeeny and
Lieutenant Jenkins. Captain McWeeney,
who several days ago refused to talk on th
subject, confeaaed freely today that he had
aided In the collection ot large amounts
ot money to be used in the recent cam
paign. Penalty Provided hy law.
According to the civil service commit
slon every man who engaged In the collec
tion of the fund, even each patrolman who
contributed, Is liable to indictment by the
grand Jury under the provisions of the
civil service act. One ot the sections In
the act provides that any person disregard
ing any part of the provisions of the law
shall be fined not less than tl.OUO and may
be Imprisoned In the county Jail for a term
not to exceed atx months. The commission
has announced Its Intention to sift the
matter to the bottom, but It Is said will
not prosecute the under officers, who, It Is
said, merely carried out the commands
of Chief of Police Collins. Captain Mc
Weeney told the commission that when he
waa ordered to subscribe to the fund he
was provided with as many blank envelopes
as there were men at his station, Into which
the money was to be put.
"I was instructed to deliver all the en
volopea to the Inspector," said he, "and I
did ao. They all contained money. A few
had (10 bills and a great many $5 bills."

will be subpoenaed to appear before the

On hearing from the commission that
Jen kins and McWeeney had told complete
eUrles ot the election assessments, Revere
said that In ail he collected about $3,700
from the officers and men under him. Kelly
admitted having obtained 12,600 from his
Roth inspectors said no lists had been
kept of those who had not subscribed and
that no special favors were given those
who contributed to the fund. The two In
spectors testified that It had been the cus

Inspector Kelly waa asked If he considered
Chief Collins' request for contrlbutiona aa

"Tea. I took It aa an order," replied
Kelly, "but I could have disobeyed. If I
wanted to."

senger coaches being destroyed, the
sleeper and observation car escaping thu
flames. There is said to be some evidence
' that the rails had been tampered with.
Officials of the road say that the track In
this vicinity had been In apparently first
class condition, and they are unable to ac
count for the wreck on any other theory
than It was the deliberate attempt of mis
creants to wreck the train.
