While in the city only about fivil

gratitude for the reception accorded hlml
through the Seuth and declared one of

"T believe the American people hnvfl

Old Order Net te Return
"The world has never witnessed sucbj

the meeting of the league assembly in
They arc fctruck with the vitality
which the assembly shows; and even
some who were inclined te the belief
that there must be n new 'association
of nations sec in the nssembly support
of Senater Itoet's, contention that the
present league miist be the basis of
whatever international organization
tills country proposes te enter.
What the assembly at Geneva docs
with the world court proposal espe
cially interests the Republicans, as
their plan is te stress the court in any
international organization this' country
should enter. The council of the league
already acted some time nge upon the
world court nronesal. and Its action
was net favorable te the se-called Heet
plan, which is likely te be the basis
of the policy te be agreed upon nt lte
publicnn conferences te be held "at
The' Council's Plan
Pnder the Reet plan the world court
would hnve jurisdiction ever interna

question 'at Issue te the court, all ether

The difference is this :
Under- the Heet plan any nation
having a grievance could hale the nn nn
tlen offending before the court, pre
cisely as the private citizen who Is
wronged can bring, tlie offender before
the ordinary court of justice. 1'nder
the plan ns it went through the council,
the court would exist only for these
nations which would agree te go before
It. as In the case of the Hague Tri
never se sorely tried. Inevitably thern
must be reconstruction. Unavoidably
there will be readjustment. And the old
order will never return. The incal
culable sacrifice would be vain, llufl
there must come stability and depend
ability. We must put aside tlie debris
of war and continue te build en seliil
foundations. We cannot escape all 'the
consequences of feered war or the un

least without a let of opposition. The
assembly is essentially a meeting of the
small nations of the world. The big
nations are represented in it, but, of
course, the small nations outnumber
them. . . .
The 'small nations are naturally jeal
ous of the big nations. That jealousy
broke out nt Pnris -in the full sessions
of tlie Pence Conference. The assembly
consequently is jealous of the council,
and since opposition te the -council is
the main ground of American opposition
te the league the assembly may be en en en
coureged te differ with the1 'council,
especially en this subject of the w.nrld

nations will be, at least theoretically,
