and Poiition of Country.
GOOD TIME TO AID THE ENTENTE
LONDON. Dec. 8. Asserting that
the Monroe doctrine, which President
Wilpon reassert 1b the most probable
cause for the "next war." the West
minister Gazette say of the presi
dent's mesas M to rongress:
-We hope from president Wilson's
mRRce thst . the American people
are beginning to understand that this ,
la not merely 'a' f between Great
Britain and Germany.. or. France ana
Germany. Tut a conflict between two
kinds Of civilisation.
"If this war emls in the triumph or Or
many or the downfall f ilr.tlsh sa
roer the Aiwrtrsn pfcple would lls-
cover at once that what President Wllwn
now describes aa the aberration of a
small minority, had become a dangerous
cancer In the heart of their atate. ami
they would find alao that the Monroe
t trine which the prealdont reasserts
with such vigor, haa become the storm
center of the world politics aod the moat
probable cauae of the next war,".
The Westminster Oasette appeale to
the American people to realise frmn their
ewn experience which la going on In
Europe and "tf unable to "help tie by poal

eertlng the neutral rights of commercial

Pall Mail Gaaette "arrwtle.
The Pall Mall Oaxette expresses the
view that TVeildent Wilson1 denuncia
tion In hla message of the activities of
war plottera wae too mild In general and
not sufficiently discriminatory between
unneutral conduct and criminal conduct
He even goes so far as to suggest that
the acts of ao aaaaasln or a dynamiter are
chiefly heinous as exhlbitlona of unneu
tral conduct, and that equal censure must
fall upon every American who falls to
keep the acalee of Judgment even and
prove hlmaelf a partisan of no nation
but hla own.' "
"We cannot say that this theory of
morals, whatever Ita convenience may be
In domestic politics, will Increase th.
respect of the outside world for the of
ficial attitude of the White House. Literal
reading of Dr. Wilson's meeaege woull

with the crime of last week which blew

The newspaper, adds that the presi
dent's theory of the duty of the American
nation does "not become clearer when ws
compare his boaat of making "Common

ference to the fight between liberty and
