Paris, Jan. 20.--Since the peace
conference was finally opened there
are certain facts which the American
public may as well know. To state
these facts bluntly might offend peo
ple who look at the world through
the rose colored spectacles of ideal
ism. But they need to be stated be
cause th ey are facts, as well be de
veloped before the conference is over,
inhugh in the official statements
they may be glossed over by the
c:amoufljge of diplomatic compliment
In the first place there will be no
league of nations which does not
provide that Great Britain shall re
nmain mistress of the seas. I have
talked with many Englishmen, from
peers to shop assistants. Every one
of them takes it for granted that the
English navy must remain predomi
They explain that the very life of
the British empire depends on the
control of the seas. Having fully. pro
vided for this purely nationalistic ne
nessity, with an additional provision
that the empire must keep the Ger
mlan colonies for the benefit of its
dominions, Great Britain will make
a.lmtost any other concession to tile
idea of a loague of nations.

The nationalistic demands of Italy
are not so clearly formulated, nor is
the government of King Emmanuel
in such a strong position to enforce
its demands, but they are not in har
nmony with the ideals of the interna
tional brotherly love.
It is imnlossible for a stay-at-home
American to realize the present at
Inosphere in the countries of our
victorious allies. One may ride for
miles in Paris between rows of cap
tured cannon. Their shields and bar
rels are camouflaged with blotches
of yellow, blue, red and gray so they
look like many coiled snakes.
Along the Mall in london is a sim
ilar exhibition of the spoils of war.
Acres in each city are covered with
captured German airplanes. Such
displays do not tend to indicate or to
forster idealistic dreams.
t'onsider also that. more than one
million Frenchmen have been killed
by German bullets, that nearly a rmil
lion British soldiers have lost their
lives in this war.
It probably is impossible for any
Amnerican to lunderstand or appreciate
the intensity of the feelings which
animate the peolple of both Great
Britain and France. They are war
weary, )but also bitter, revengeful and:
determined not to give upi or lose any
part of what they have bought with
the blood of their sons.
Ylanks Are D)isgusted.
The soldiers of the Americaln x
Ipeditionary force sense this feeling.
i"The boys in lmy coulntry," said a
private returned on leave from the
armny occupation in Germany, "often
talk about how everybody in Europe
hates somebody else'. The people
seemi born to hate each other. We
are not used to it land we don't like
it. We don't want to comlte over hero
again to ltke part ill the old qiuar
rels of Europe."
It is unpleasant but necessary to
call attention to the attitude of Brit
ish newspapers toward the American
military effort. The reviewvs of the
last years of the war which 1 have
read vary fromn no nlention at all of
the Anlerican forces ill France to a
tiny and casual paragraph.
Recently there was printed an offi
cial statement of Field Mtarshal Ilaig
in whiclh lie declartes: "This record
furnishes proof of the overwhelming
lecisive part played by the lBritish
armies on the western front in bring
ing the enenmy to his final defeat."
At honme the newspapers dloubtless
ly exaggerated the deeds of the Amner
ican armies. There is more idle busi
ness than debating the relative credit
due the various arimes. None but a
fool would mlinimnize the bulldog,
courage and the great victories of the
British troops or the magnificent.
achievements of the French nation,
long trained in arms. But one expects
a certain generosity in great victories
towards those who have helped then
in the difficult and dangerotus hours,
but in the British press at least, one
does not find it so at. present.
It would lie easy andi much more
pleasant to pait the situation over
here as all smooth and rosy, but it
would not be truthful. There is an
enormous amount of propgandalll be
