President Wilson Tells Russia
Why We Are At War
TVcmiKP II Kcla forth In stU'h rlenr
tri niH tho position our tint ion occupies
in thn lut'Kriil war, tlio message of
President Wilson to the Kussinn poo
pie, hs transmitted ly (Iip commission
bended by Kx-Secretnry Hoot, Is of ut
most Interest. TIip tpxt of this ines
snue is as follows:
In view of thp approaching visit of
thp American delegation in Kussia to
express the dppp fripnd.ship of the
Aincriran people for the people of Rus
sia and to discuss the best and most
practical means of co-operation be
tween the two ppoplps In carrying the
present struggle for the freedom of
nil peoples to a successful consum
mation, It sppms opportune and ap
propriatp that I should state again in
the light of this new partnership, the
objects the I'nited States has had in
mind in entering the war. Those ob
jects have been very much beclouded
during I lie past few weeks by mistaken
and misleading statements, and the is
sues at stake are too momentous, too
tremendous, too significant for the
whole human race to permit any mis
interpretations or misunderstandings,
however slight, to remain uncorrected
for a numient.
The wit has begun to go against
Germany, and in their desperate desire
to escape 'be inevitable ultimate de
feat those who nre in authority in
(Jcrnia'iy are using every possible in
strumentality, nre making use even of
the Influence of groups and parties
among their own subjects to whom
they have never been just or fair, or
even tolerant, to promote a propagan
da on l)Ki sides of the sea which will
preserve their Influence at home and
power abroad to the undoing of the
very men they nre using.
The position of Amerlrnn in this
war is so clearly avowed that no man
can be excused for mistaking it. She
seeks no material profit or aggrandize
ment of any kind. She is fighting for
no advantage, or selfish object of her
own, but for the liberation of peoples
everywhere from the aggressions of
autocratic force. The ruling classes
In Germany have begun too late to
profess a 1'ke liberality and justice of
purposes, but only to preserve the
power they have set up in Germany
ind the selfish advantages which they
have wrongly gained for themselves
and their private projects of power all
the way from Beiln to Ragdad and
beyond. Government after govern
ment has by their influence, without
open conquest of its territory, been
linked togethpr by a link of intrigue
d'reetcd at nothing less than the peace
and liberty of the world. The meshes
of the intrigue must be broken, but
cannot be broken unless wrongs al
rendy done are undone; and adequate
measures nmst be taken to prevent it
from ever again being rewoven or re
paired Of course, the imperial German gov
ernment and those whom it is using
for their own undoing are seeking to
'obtain pledges that the war will end in
the restoration of the status quo ante,
jit whs the status quo ante out of
'which this Iniquitous war was issued
forth, the power of the imperial Her
man government within the empire
jnnd lis widespread domination and in
: fltienee outside of that empire. That
j status must be altered in such fashion
as to prevent any such hideous thing
from ever happening again.
We are fighting for the liberty, the
self-government and the undictated
development of all peoples, and every
feature of the settlement that con
cludes this war must be conceived and
executed for that purpose. Wrongs
must first be righted awl the.n ade
quate safeguard must be created to
prevent their being committed again.
We ought not to consider remedies
merely because they have a pleasing
and sonorous sound. Practical ques
tions can be settled only by practical
means. Fhrases will not achieve Ihe
result. Effective readjustments are
necessary must be made.
Rut they must follow a principle and
that principle is plain. No people
must be forced under sovereignty un
der which it docs not wish to live.
No territory must change hands ex
cept for the purpose of securing those
who inhabit it n fair chance of life and
liberty. No indemnities must be in
sisted on except those that constitute
payment for manifest wrongs done.
No readjustments of power must be
made except such as will tend to
secure the future peace of the world
and the future welfare and happiness
of its peoples.
And then the free people of the
world must draw together In some
common covenant, some genuine and
practical cooperation that, will in ef
fect combine their force to secure
peace and justice In the dealings of
nations with one another. The bor
therhood of mankind must no longer
be a fair but empty phrase; it must
he given a structure of force and real
ity. The nations must realize their com
mon life and effect a workable part
nership to secure that life against the
aggressions of autocratic and self
For these things we can afford to
pour out blood and treasure. For
these are the things we have always
professed to desire, and unless we
pour out blood and treasure now and
succeed, we may never be able to
unite or show conquering force again
in the great cause of human liberty.
The day has come to conquer or sub
mit. If the forces of autocracy can
divide us they will overcome us; if
we stand together, victory is certain
and the liberty which victory will
secure. We can afford then to be
generous, but we cannot afford then
or now to be weak or omit nay single
guarantee of Justice and security.

One of the most charming church
wedding ever held on Maui was that
of Miss Irene Rlowers Aiken to Mr.
Harold Earl Starratt, which took place
on Wednesday evening in the Chruch
of the Good Shepherd. The pretty
little church was all too small to ac
comodate the throng of friends of the
bride who bad gathered from nil parts
of Maui for the joyous ceremony.
The church was beautifully decorat
ed with yellow and white flowers, cal
la lilies, and Shasta daisies, playing
an important part in the scheme which
was designed and executed by Mrs.
W, F. J. Dale. Trior to the arrival
of the bridal party, the choir of the
church sang, as it did also softly dur
ing the ceremony.
It was a few minutes past the
stroke of 8:30 o'clock that the bridal
party entered thp church to the strains
of a wedding march played by Mrs.
Viirers at the organ. First In the pro
cession camp thp two bridps maids.
Miss Evplyn Scott and Miss Shirley
Foster, Honolulu girl friends of the
bride .both dressed alike in. pale prim

picture hats, and carrying baskets of
yellow cannas. They followed by
Mrs. Frederic Hardy, matron of hon
or, gowned in a stunning maize color
ed satin, also with white picture hat
and carrying yellow chrysanthemums.
The bride was beautiful in a white
brocaded crepe meteor, with veil lipid
back by orange blossoms. She carri
ed a splendid shower bouquet of
sweet peas caught with satin ribbons,
and was supported on the arm of her
brother, Mr. Worth O. Aiken who lat
er gave her awny. At the chancel
Ihe party was mel by the groom, sup
ported by his best man, Mr. J. S B.
The ushers were Mr. Hollls Hardy
and Mr. William Alexander.
The ceremony was performed in
most Impressive manner by the rector,
the Rev. J. Charlps VillU'rs, thp ring
services of the church being employed.
Following the ceremony and the
after one of signing the marriage re
gister, the party left the church to be
driven to the home of Dr. and Mrs.
George Aiken, on H'gh street, where
a small reception, was held. There
were about 40 present at this affair,
made up of the bridal party and the
nenr relatives and a few intimate
friends of the young people. During
the servijig of dainty light refresh
ments the happy young couple sought
to slip away unobserved, but were un
successful and were liberally shower
ed with rict, while their automobiles
was richly decorated with old foot
wear, tin pans, white ribbons, etc.
After finally making their escape
they were driven to Lahaina, where
they are spending the first days of
their honeymoon in the C. D. Lufkin
cottage on the beach. They will
