tional peace, with the appointment of di
rectors of two of the divisions, was made

In his address as presiding- officer of the
Lake Mohonk conference on International
Dr. Butler also predicted "with au
thority" the establishment of the Interna
tional court of arbitral Justice before the
time of the third Hague conference. Dr.
"The trustees of the endowment have
. taken a broad and statesmanlike view of
Its alms and purposes. While they do not
overlook the value of the work of the
propaganda and Intend to aid In carrying
ll on, they believe that the time has come
when the resources of modern scientific
methods and of modern scholarship should
'be brought to bear1 on the problem of In
ternational relations.' Thev believe that
.. the leading- jurists and economists of the
world should be set at work In the service
of humanity to ascertain Just what has
been done and what are the legal and
economlo Incidents of war and Just what
are the legal and economic advantages to
follow on the organisation of the world
Into a single group of friendly and co-operative
nations bound together by the
tie of a Judicial system resting on the
moral consciousness of mankind, from
whose findings there can be ho successful
appeal. The plaus ef the trustee bave
been formulated with these, ends In view,
eono of Organisations.
"It has been determined by the trustees
of the Carnegie endowment to organise the
undertakings In three parts, or divisions
a division of International law, a division
of economics and history and a division of
Interoourta and education.
"The division of International law will bo
under the direction of Prof. James Brown
Scott. ' This division will aim constantly
to Inculcate the belief that intercourse
. between nations should ' be based on ' a
correct and definite Idea of International
. Justice. The endowment will associate with 1
Dr. Scott a eor.eulti.tlve board, composed
of some of the most distinguished Interna
tional lawyers In the world. i
"The second division will be the division
of economics and history. It will be under
the direction of Prof. John Bates Clark of
Columbia university. ,Thls division will
aim at the education of public opinion and
at' the formulation of .conclusions that
may serve for the guldanoe of govern
mental policy. ,
"It will he the business of this division
to study the economic causes and effects
of war,' the effect on the publte opinion
of nations and on international good wt II.
of retaliatory, discriminatory and preferen
tial tariffs and the economic aspects o'
the present huge expenditures for military
purposes and the relation between mill
tary expenditures and International well
being and the world-wide program for
social improvement and reform which is
held In watting through lack of means fo
Its execution. (
Third Division Sapelciaentary.
"The division of Intercourse and educa
tion, the director for which has not yet
been announced, will supplement the work
of the two divisions by carrying forward
vigorously and In co-operation with exist
ing agencies the educational work of
propaganda, the International hospitality
and of promoting International friendship.
Among the tasks of this division will be
to diffuse Information and to educate pub
f llo oolnion rcnrdlnv th. -a,i.

safely Into the Inner harbor, where it was
anchored. The passengers, who numbered
758, were quickly landed.
The liner was within a mile of a tender,
which was waiting to take off the Irish
contingent of passengers, when Daunt Rock
suddenly loomed up In a dens fog, and
before the vessel's way could be stopped

The passengers were at luncheon and
quickly rushed on deck. The ahlp only
hung on the rocks for a short time and
then slid off into deep water, with a large
aperture in its starboard bows, through
which the water poured and threatened to
flood the liner.
Captain Potter and his officers, ' however,
were' prompt to close the bulkhead and the
Inrush of water was confined to the for
ward hold. There was no sign of panic on
