reeolut'on to be acted upon by the com

addre.t advocated a modification In ths
scheme of the league so that economic
pree.ru re ran be brought to bear on ra
tions that are Intent on going to war
rhetors the new Isagnie uees Its military
power to prevent hostilities.
William Dudley w-oulke, Indiana, offered
to tha first article of the proposed league
an ' amendment watch, in effect, would
leave to ths nations in .the leagua tha
option to place In tbs treaties they sign
the snectflp things they declare shall be
Justiciable or nonjusticiable. Mr. Foulke
did not believe an International tribunal
should decide the internal affairs of any
nation, such as naturalisation or Immi
gration questions. '
Victor C Berger. Wisconsin, proposed
an amendment that where two nations
go to war after the league baa exhausted
its powers nonbelligerent nations In the
league shall be prohibited from furnishing
arms or ammunition to the oombatanta,
but that there shall be ne interference
with food supplies.
Four articles, which ' had been agreed
upon by the provisional committee sa a
basis for the conferenoe, were presented
to the meeting today, and It was hoped
by members of ths committee that they
would be adopted and sent to President
Wilson for his consideration and to the
beads of other nations. The articles are
"First, all Justiciable questions srls1nT
between the signatory powers, not settled
by no alia lion, shall be submitted to a
judicial tribunal for bearing and .judg
ment, both upon the merits and ' upon
any Issue as to Its jurisdiction.
"Second, all nea-juetteiabie quest lor a
arising between signatories and -not set
tied by negotiations, shall be submitted
to a council of conciliation for hearing,
uonetderation and recommendation.
"Third, the signatory powers shslt
Jointly use their military forces to pre
vent any one ef their number of going
to war. or committing acts of hostility
against another of the signatories before
any question arising shall be submitted
aa provided In the foregoing. . ,
."Fourth, conferences .between the sig
natory powers shall be held from time
te time to formulata and codify rules of
international law, which unless some
signatory shall signify Its dissent within
a stated period, shall thereafter govern
in the decisions of Judicial tribunal men
tioned in article one."

Resell of False Fhlloeeeby.
In preliminary diseuasloa ef the cause
of the European eonfltnt, Mr. Bryan la a
lengthy analysis of the situation, argues
that It Is. no war of raoe, religion or
families, and declares:
"If 1 have correct ry analysed the sit
uation, ths war Is ths natural result ef
a false philosophy. The funda
mental precept of this false philosophy Is
that "might makes rlfiht.'-
Leedlng up to his argument against
preparation for war by the United States,
Mr. Bryan says:
"We dare not trust the peace of the
world to those who spend their ttm In
getting ready for wars that should never
come. Half the energy employed In pre
paring for war would effectually prevent
war if ueed In propagating the principles
which make for peace. Instead of pre
venting war, preparedness provokes wsr,
because It Is Impossible to coerce the
people into bearing the burdens Incident

without cultivating hatred as If It were
a natural virtere.
