BRYAN LIKES IDEA
OF PEACE UISS10H
Sebrnkan Takes Under Adriie-
went Editor' Snnjtition that
He Viiit Warring Powers.
NOT SPOKESMAN FOB A GROUP
WASHINGTON, Sept. IS. WU
lam J. Bryan announced tonight that
he bad taken under advisement a
suggestion from editors ot foreign
language newspapers published In
the United SUtea that ha maka a
trip to Europe aa a private peace en
voy to the warring powers. In a
statement to a committee ot the edi
tors, who, headed by Dr. William
Fargo, had urged him to undertake
the task, Mr. Bryan Indicated that
' he might at least visit neutral Euro-
' pean countries In the hope of finding
there sentiment to aid America In
"the maintaining ot neutrality and
the prevention of a preparedness
that provokes rather than prevent
war." ' , ,
Mr. Bryan's references to military
preparedness attracted attention In the
' capital In view of the possible effect of
hla attitude on some elements In the
house when the administration's pro
gram for strengthening the national de
; fences la considered.
filers Oat Stateaaeat. .
Farller in the day ths former secretary
of state had given out a statement de
' daring mooer for liKToasod military sx-
pendltures would e difficult to secure
' and adding:
"I do not see that there ta any reason
for changing the policy of the country
In thla rsepeet. The preparednees
. which ta now being advocated (by the
national defense and navy leagues) not
only cultivates the spirit which leada to
.' war, but It Involves an expenditure which
the people will not submit to unlesa con
l vlnced that some nation is setting ready
to attack us and we cannot single out
nations and prepare against them with
' out making hatred a national policy."
,". In hla reply to the editors' committee,
Mr. llryan aald: '
' ' "I need not assure you that I share
. your deetre for peace and am willing to
do anything In my power to hasten It
The service that any one person can
render In such a matter Is of course
small, but each one is In duty bound
to do what he can and I am willing to
, do my part. Whether It Is wise for me
to undertake a trip to Europe Is a quee
Uon which I am not now prepared to
decide and I am sure you will allow me
to take the matter under advisement.
' Kven If It Is Impossible to exert any In
fluence toward the hastening of. peace.
1 a trip to the neutral countries might glvs
. , me Information that I could use In the
work which lies before ua bare, namely,
the maintaining of neutrality and the
prevention of a preparedness that pro
. vokSa rather than prevents war."
Another-Taelt Be Deae.
"'. Another work, to .be done on such a
fjtrlp, Mr. Bryan aald, would be the fur
iftheranoe of peace treaty plans luaugu
i a ted by him'. Existence of peace treaties
:WUN Great Britain, .Trance and Russia,
,'ha declared, "enables us to carry on our
diplomatic disputes? - with thsta without
, any of the seasatlonallsni that has sV
tended . $ur 'correspondence .with Oer
many," and the acceptance of such treat
. ' les by Germany, Austria and Bslgulm.
. "would silence the Jingo pre and to a
large extent relieve the excuse which has
been ueed for the propagation of the
, plan of greater preparedness."
"Having great faith in the plan and
- having negotiated the other treaties,"' he
added.."! might be able to present the
, caee more strongly in personal inter
views than I was abls to do by diploma
tic correspondence and now that the ad
vantage of these treaties has been mads
mors apparent it is posalble that Ger
many, Austria and Belgium might be
willing to enter into such treaties."
Mr. Bryan said that if he decided to
make the trip he would ge not as a
Spokesman of any special group, but as
"representative of the peace sentiment
of the United Ota tea, whloh includes the
vast majority of our people."
