United States for Justice.
The contentions of the American
government generally and substan
tially were that it had come into the
war not alone on account of speci
fic grievances against Germany, but
on account also of certain funda
mental principles of justice and
right. These principles had been
announced with fullness several
times by the American government
and had resulted in a great" effort
by the American people.
Looked at from Washington these
principles each 'time they had been
enunciated in part or in whole! had
been received favorably by the Eu
ropean peoples and seemingly by
the allied governments. If was not
meant to be understood Hhat the
American government hatl thought
the allied governments had formally
accepted them, but the attitude of the
ministers unofficially and of the
press and of eminent men ouside
Jhe immediate administrations and
of the peoples asa whole had caus
ed the conviction to prevail in Am
erica that these principles had been
approved and accepted as ideals on
which the war was being prosecut
ed. Did" Not Fight for Land.
The American people never had
been conscious that they were
fighting for territorial or colonial
interests of any allied goverments
excepting insofar as these came
within the frame work of the Am
erican government's princip!s Con
sequently, it was necessary to bring
out that these points, having bten
accepted by the central powers pre
sented a cleanjssue as to whether
they were to . Be officially accepted
by the allied powers.
If the allied powers could not
see their way clear to accept them,
the American government was in the
position of having conducted the
war for the purpose which were
not identical with those of the allies.
This presented a rather delicate
issue at the outset as it was realiz
ed that it might require the submis
sion of the entire subject to the
American congress. The European
ministers felt the force of the views
presented, and this in time brought
about1 an entire agreement upon
the American points as a basis of
Colonel E. M. House, the special
representative of the United States
government whn he arrived here
found little disposition among Am
erican and European friends to ac
cept as a totality the frame work
of peace as expressed by President
Wilson. Some European statesman
considered that the points had work
ed as a good solvent upon Germany;
that they had served their great
purpose in their effect upon German
unity, but that they should not be
observed too closely yhen it came
to formulating the practical details
of the settlement.
Allied statesman 'plainly put for
ward the view that, as the American
traditional policy had been one of
detachment from European affairs,
it was natural for the American
government wherfthe war broke out
in Europe to consider it a quarrel
among .EtKpaiy nations and to de
clare Irs neutrality-. 'f v ..
It was pointed out that fr two
years and a half the American gov
ernment observed its neutrality and
called the attention of both groups
of . belligerents to violation of sea
lw. Germany's offensive became
intolerable and America -entered into
the war both for that reason and
because America did have a com
munity, of ideals of government and
of human rights with the alies. Am
erica, as became a great country,
was impelled to put forth great ef
forts, and she Aid.
America Should Withdraw.
Allied statesman have fully appre
ciated the effect of American arms
in winning thevdecision. Neverthe
less, it was contended by some, this
had been a controversy among Eu
ropean nations and the wining group
it was suggested, supposed that Am
erica having accomplished her aims,
would return to its detachments and
allow the 'countries intimately con
cerned to arrange a settlement ac
cording to the European viewpoint
of the situation.
These statesmen made it plain
that they would receive eefy friend
ly counsef the United States would
offer.the more so because they knew
that America wanted nothing in a
material way for herself, but was
interested only in realizing her
ideals. The losses the other bel
ligerents have suffered in compari
son with those of the United States
have been cited as a reason for the
allies having a predominant influ-

rallying point for the military. Tbeyi

cheered not only by (he men in uni

attack the internationalists, several
