Moreover, and above all, let us remem
hrr that words count only when they jrlvp
xpre-ielon to deeds or. are to he translated
Into them. The leaders of uie Red Ter
ror prattled of peace, while they steeped
their hands In the blood of tho Innocent ;
and many a tyrant has culled It peace,
when he has scourged lioneet protest Into
alienee. Our words must be Judsed by
our deeds: and In striving for a lofty
Ideal we muni use practical methods; and If
we cannot attain all at ono leap, we must
advance towards It step by step, season
ably content so long as we do actually
make rome. progress In the rlicht direction
Now, having freely admitted the limita
tions to our work, and the qualifications
to be borne In mind, I feel that I have
the right to have my. word taken seri
ously when I point out where, In my
Judgment, great advance can be made In
me cause or international peace. I speak
a a practical man, and whatever I now
advocate I actually tried to do when I was
for the time being the head of a great
nation, ard keenly Jealous of its honor
and Interest.- suit other nations to do
only what 1 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
ao backward that a civilized community
ought ret to enter into an arbitration
treaty with them, at least until we have
gone much further than at present in
securing some kind of International police
action. -But really civilized communi
ties should have effective arbitration trea
ties among themHelves. I believe that
these treaties can cover almost all ques
tion liable to arise between such nations
If they are drawn with the explicit agree
ment that each contracting party will re
rpect the other's territory and Its absolute
aoverelgnty within that territory, and the
equally explicit agreement that (aside from
the very rare cases, where the nation's
honer is vitally concernedt all other possi
ble subjects of controversy will be sub
mitted to arbitration: -Much a treaty would
Insure peace unless one party deliberately
violated it,- Of course, as yet there Is no
adequate safeguard" against such deliberate
violations, but the establishment, at,eut4i..
cnt number of these treaties would go a
JlT J' t,5J'd:i:r(tiJ1&' a world, opinion
which iwmild finally find expression In the
provision of methods, to forbid or punish
any such violation.
Thw llagae Tribunal.
Secondly; there Is the further develop
ment of the-Hague Tribunal, of the Work
of the conferences and courts nt The
Hague. It has been well said that the
first Hague confereiue framed a magna
charta for the nations,; It get before us
an Ideal whih has already to some extent
been realized, and towards the full realiza
tion of which we can all steadily rtrlve.
The second conference made further prog
ress, the third should do yet more. Mean
while the American government has more
' than once tentatively auggested methods
for completing tlm court of arbitral justice,
constituted at the second Hague confer
ence, and for rendering It effective. It Is
earnestly to be . hoped Unit the various
governments of liurope, workli g with tho-.e
of America and of Asia, shall set them
selven seriously to the task of devising
some method which shall accomplish this
result. If 1 may venture the suggestion,
It would be well for tl)e statesmen of the
world. In planning for the erection of this
world court; to study what hns been done
In the United SiateH by the supreme court
1 cannot help thinking that the constitu
tion of tho United ' Ptntrs. notably In the
establishment of the' supreme court and in
the methods adopted for securintr peace and
pood relations among and between the dif
ferent states offers certain valuable an
alogies to whnt should be striven for In
order to secure,' through -the Hague courts
and conferences, a species of world feder
ation for International peace and .luetic.
There are. of. course, fundamental differ
ences between what the United Sintes con
stitution does and what we should even
attempt at this time to secure at The
Hague; but. the methods adopted In the
American constitution, to prevent hostil
ities between the stales, and to secure the
supremacy of the federal court In certain
classes of cases, arc well worth the study

of those who seek at The Hague to obtain
the same result on a world scale.
Limitation of Armaments.
In tho third place, something should be
dune as soon as possible to check the
growth of cirmainenta, especially naval
armaments, ' by International agreement.
No one power could or Hhtnild act by itself;
for It Is eminently undesirable, from the
standpoint of the peace of righteousness,
that a power which really does belltve in
peace should place Itself at the mercy of
some rival .which may at bottom have no
such belief' and no Intention of acting on
it. Hut, granted sincerity of "purpose, the
great powers' of the world should find no
insurmountable difficulty in reaching an
agreement which would put an end to the
present costly and growing extravagance
of expenditure on naval armaments. An
agreement monly to limit the size of ships
would have been very useful a few years
ago, and would still be of use; but the
agrrement should Vo 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 kerp 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 luck
of any executive power, of any police
power to enforce the decrees of the court,
in any community of any size the author
ity of the pourts rests upon actual or
potential forcr; on the existence of. a po
lice, or on the knowledge that the able
bodied rr.en of the country are both ready
and willing to see that the decrees of
Judicial and legislative bodies are put into
effect. In ntw and wild communities
where there is violence, an honest man
must protect himself; and until other
means of securing his safety are devised,
it la both foolish and wicked to persuade
him to surrender his arms while the men
who are dangerous to the community re
laln theirs. He should not renounce his
right to protect himself by his own efforts
until the community is so organized that
t can effectively relieve the individual of
the duty of putting down violence. So it
Is with nations. Each nation must keep
well prepared to defend Itself until the es
tablishment of some form of International
police power, competent and willing to pre
vent violence as between nations. As things
are now, such power to command peace
throughout the world could best be assured
by some combination between those great
nations which stocerely desire peace and
have no thought themselves of committing
aggressions. The combination might . at
first ba only to secure peace within, pertHin
definite limits and certain definite condi
tions; but thu ruler or statesman, who
should bring about such a combination
would have earned his place In history for
all time and his title to the gratitude of

Jnnklns Case In Court.
The case of John Junklne' of Ottumwa
was leached In thu Iowa supreme court
today. Junkins Is under sentence to be
hanged in July next for the murder of
Clura Rosen more than a year ago. It
was an atrocious crime solely to secure
?i t.i Jewelry on TTer person. He con-Yrs.-c-tl
the whole thing. Judge J. C. Mit
chell appeared to plead for him on the
ground that he Is a congenital degenerate
and wholly irresponsible, therefore should
not bo hanged. It Is regarded as not at
all probable the court will interfere with
tho sentence pnssed upon the negro.

Mr. Ballinger was not able to give a di
rect answer, but said In answer to a ques.
tion by Attorney Vertrees that he had
not been able to get either of the officials
of the reclamation service to express any
doubt as to the feasibility of any pro
jects. - .
Mr. Ballinger was asked about the let
ter in which Mr. Garfield told the
president that Secretary Ballinger had
instructed Director Newell and Engineer
Davis of the reclamation service to make
the restoration of lands, withdrawn under
Garfield, slowly, in order not to reflect on
the previous administration. Mr Ballinger
said he gave no such order and recalled
that no such suggestion had been made.
"If there was- any suggestion," contin
ued Mr. Ballinger, "it was at the instance
of Mr. Newf II, In a letter to Senator La-
Follette, ' suggesting such a course The
fact Is that restorations were not made
slowly, but were made In the course of
two or three weeks, as fast as they came
down from the reclamation service. It
was not . a fair -and truthful statement.

administration, however, and did what' I

"I think it had the effect of . keeping a
great many people from going to Canada
because there is a great deal of land in our
reserves capable of being developed."
"Explain what you meant when you testl
tied that you had your hands up and could
not get them down and why you remained
silent under criticism," said Attorney Ver
trees. "Had I followed my natural Impulse,"
said Mr. Ballinger, raising his voice, "I
would have made a strenuous effort at the
outset, giving the absolute fact of the con
spiracy which existed against me and would
have given to the public answers to all of
the charges preferred against me. But I

Start and Clubs Because New
Mayor Defers Appointments.
MITCHELL, 8. D.. Msy 6.-(Speclal.)-Thls
city has but one policeman to care
for the peace and dignity of the town.
Three officers wslked Into ths city hall and
laid down their clubs and took off their
stars, when it became apparent that they
were to receive their appointments for the
next year at the hands of Mayor Hitch
cock. The mayor had decided to post
pone his appointment of the police depart
ment until ths June meeting. Chief Cun
ningham and two patrolmen felt they were
entitled to a re-appolntment at once, and
because ths mayor did not hand It out
to them, thsy oult their Jobs. Policeman
Newman was the only man to stand by the'
administration. The mayor declined to
make the appointments at this time, owing
to a discussion over the Increased salary
question of the police, and the possibility
that the council would not confirm all his
appointments In that line. Ths mayor wilt
temporarily appoint a couple of men to
fill the places.
