If it permits Itself tn lone the stern and verlls virtues, nnri tliln without reg-nrd to whether the. Iohs I 1ne to the growth of a hearties and all-abHorhlns; commercialism, tii prolonged InUnlKenop In luxury and soft effortless ph fie, or t(j tho deflcatlon of a Wnrped and twisted sentimentality. 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 GOtJSTSWEO?. raws PAW-PAW PILLS A JIunyon'a Tav-- - ' 'Tfl-.T Pllla are nn. &$tj all other lax- A v'jiiii,jru'7i tivcs or cathartics.

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 all mankind.

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. I had no desire to reflect on the previous administration, however, and did what' I could totavold jjv-'.'l Forestry Policy Reversed. Mr. Ballinger said that since Plnchot's dismissal there has been a reversal of the policy of the forestry bureau which held full sway when Plnchot was In charge, "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 obeyed the direction of my superior and supposed that others would remain silent who had the same obligation to do so that I did." Letter from Taft, Mr. Ballinger then read a letter which he said the president had written to him from Beverly, September 13, 1908.
