BRYAN BIDS D. S, ACT
FOR PEACE AT ONCE
Talks on War, Snffrnsro and
Prohibition at 23d Street ,
Y. M. 0. A.
William Jennings Bryan told an iu
dlence at the Twenty-third street Y. M.
C. A. last evening that It Is the duty of
tho United States to bring nbout world
peaco as quickly as poMslliln and tl.en tJ
see to It that that peace Is not Vrckcn
"Some nation must lift the world out
of the night of war Into the light of
peace," bo said, "and ours Is the nation
that ought to do the task. If I know
the American people they are not willing
to let the opportunity finw unheeded"
Col. Bryan's tnlk Included three sub
jects suffrage, prohibition and peace.
He called It, howe'er, "Four Pictures
That Havo Influenced My Life." The
Madonna, he said, leaned him toward
suffrnge. "The Breaking nf Home Ties,"
familiar on the walls of many homes
and depicting a youth leaving home to
bnttle with the world, steeled him
ngolnst liquor as a destroyer of youth
and Ideals. "The Apotheosis of War"
nnd "Christ Before Pilate" made him
an apostle of peace nnd a champion nf
love n opposed to force.
Although ho was eloquent on all
three topics, It was on war and Amer
ica's stond for preparedness that he
"They say wo may be drawn Into this
war to preserve our honor," he cried.
"There's no honor that this nation i-an
preserve by going Into war eomi,-irnlle
with the honor It can attain by persuad
ing the nations to abandon the husks of
strife and return home to the teachings
of the Prince of Pence.
"War Is not Impossible for us, but If
wo ever have war I want It to be by the
vote of the people. If there Is any ques
tion that should be put to the referendum
It Is this, which concerns the lives of
the people, nnd I'd want to haw! the
votes of the women on It, too the votes
of the mothers."
Preparedness, he said, Is the prime
cause of war, and the philosophy of love
Is Its only preventive. Concerning pro
hibition, he gave thanks "11. at we now
have a Democratic party entirely Inde
pendent of the liquor Interests."

Mr. SchlfTn statement follows:
"The criticism In London papers of
what I said last Friday evening at the
League to Enforce Peace dinner evidently .
results from an Incomplete or garbled re-1
port wtilch must havo been cabled to
Kngland. 1 have by no means moved
for Immediate peace, for I well know
this would be utterly Impracticable and
not desirable In the positions the various
belligerents hold at the present time.
"I have sought to bring out thst even
while this furious conflict proceed! It
ought to be dr!rahle to bring the bel
lWtvrentn tn tli realization, If peace is tn
come, that between themselves they need
beforo long tn come tn understand and
agree what the causes and tho problems
of this great war are as a result of
which the world will have to be made
over and that It Is by no means too
soon to give this phase consideration.
"I have further endeavored to make It
clear that unless peace lie finally con
cluded with an understanding of this
aspect of the struggle, peace Is not
worth making. For It cannot be the
desire uf the nations that the conclusion
of peace shall mark only the beginning
of a series of Titanic struggles, ns has
recently been prophesied by an eminent
man who has' spoken 'so pessimistically
nnd discouraging!)' of the future. With
others I am deeply Impressed that It Is
most desirable to bring both the llles
and the Central Powers to a realization
of the necessity of coming together In
this respect at least, for at some time
they will have to do this In any event.

preference for Anglo-Saxon govern
mental Institutions, for the maintenance
of which It Is Indeed worth whllo to
make every sacrifice, may I not say to
those, who seek to calumniate me that
attacks upon honest utterances nnd nt-
tempts to discredit free expression nf i
opinion are not the best methods by
which to retain and to gain Increasingly
the sympathies of the American people."

"The proclamation was well received.
Conditions ars reported as being normal
and the great majority of the people
regard the proclamation with favor."
Although no publicity had been given
to the Government's decision to adopt
such measures. Captain Knapp's action
was the result of plans worked out
carefully by State and Navy Depart
ment officials nfter conferences with
Minister Russell, recalled from Santo
Domingo for the purpose, and considera
tion of full reports from tho naval of
ficers on the scene. Captain Knapp,
recently sent to relieve Rear Admiral
Pond In Dominican waters, carried with
him complete Instructions for his task.
The necessity for a drastlo step has
been considered since the overthrow
several months ago of President Jlmlnei
by General Arias, a strongly antl-Amerl-can
revolutionist. With Arias In con
trol the Dominican Assembly elected
Frederlco Enrlquez President, but the
United Stntes refused to recognize the
new government and withheld the bal

pay since the downfall of Jlmlnes when
on December 2 ths American officers
begin to disburse 1600,000 ot accumu
lated export duties.
