ets of autocracy, but the true repre
sentatives of the people.
Perhaps the most Important, If not
the most acceptable article In Mr.
Wilson's speech. Is his outspoken ad
vocacy of a. removal of "all economic
barriers" and the "establishment of
n equality of trade conditions among
all the nations consenting to the peace
and associating- themselves far its
-malntensnce." By this language, he
does not recede from his previous po
sition nor does he repudiate the allied
threat of trade discrimination, but he
Insists that a real peace n which all
the nations guarantee hereafter to
become partners In a league of na
tions shall mean the removal of every
trade barrier that can possibly lead to
ws. between nations.
The President includes what Lloyd
Geo.e omits. Mr. Wilson Is explicit
In his argument for a reduction flf
armaments and goes the whole dis
tance by saying that armies and nav-
Iss should be diminished to "the point
consistent with domestic 6afety."
This contrdlcts Mr. Roosevelt's plea
for permanent conscription, but at
the same time it would relieve the
peoples of the whole world from the
terrific burdens of taxation which the
maintenance of big ramies and navies
In peace time must comprehend
Mr. Wilson .outdoes even the radi
cals of Russia by his denunciation
of secret treaties, because he puts It
flrst In his statement of peace terms,
and insists that It shall be a viola
tion or International law to make a
secret treaty. This Is the most pro
nounced sep in the direction of
world democracy ever put forth by
the head of an important nation. It
will make it possible for the people
to be acquainted always with the de
tails of foreign relations, ro-that. they
may never'again bo Jed Into war by
the schemes of autocracy's few men.
Throughout Congress there was a
wave of approval of the "main princi
ples enunciated by President Wilson.
The speech will go down In history
as his greatest utterance. It is a gen
erous offer of peace to Germany, a
reasoned statement "of America's lofty
and unselfish position In thlsvwar.

Optimism
Soros wit defined op

That kind of optimism
Is not possible in the world

peace."
The ends of the world

the universal problem Is
too complex, all men are

COMPLETE TEXT
Gentlemen of the Congress:
Orce more, as repeatedly be
fore, the spokesmen of the cen
tral powers have indicated their
desire to discuss the objects of
the war and the possible bases of
a general peace.
Parleys have been In progress
at Brest Llfjvsk between Russian
representatives and representa
tives of the central powers
to which the attention of all the
blllegerents have been invited
for the purpose of ascertaining
whether it may be possible to ex
tend the parleys Into a general
conference with regard to terms
of peace and settlement.
liaaslaa Program. Detnlte,
The Russian representatives
presented not only a perfectly
definite statement of the princi
ples upon which they would be
willing to conclude ' peace but
also an equally definite, program
of the concrete' application of
those principles. ,
The representatives of 'the cen
tral powers on their .part, pre
sented an outline of settlement,
which, if much less definite,
seemed susceptible, of Jiberal In
terpretation until th.elr specific
program of practical-terms was
added.

ereignty of Russia" or tirlne ref-
tamMo .
l-hn fnrtnKa' .It- rfU Kt.t
meant,- th a word. that fhj cen
tral empires were to keep 'every
fopt of territory- .their armed
forces had occupied every-prov-
Ince, every city, every point of
vantage as a permanent addi
tion to their territories and their
power.
Snrgeetlon Was Teuton's.
It is a reasonable conjecture
that the general principles of
settlement which they at flrst
suggested originated with the
more liberal statesmen of Ger
many and Austria, the men who
have begun to feel the force of
their own peoples thought and
purpose, while the concrete terms
of actual settlement came from
the military leaders who have
no thought but to keep what
they have got.
The negotiations have been
broken off. The Russian repre
sentatives were sincere and In
earnest. They cannot entertain
such proposals of conquest and
domination.
Incident Significant.
The whole Incident U full of
significance. It Is also full of
perplexity. With whom are the
Russian representatives dealing?
for whom are the representatives
of the central empires speaking?
Are they speaking for the ma
jorities of their respective parlia
ments or for the minority parties,
that military and imperialistic
minority party which has so far
dominated their whole olcy and
controlled the affairs of Turkey
and of the Balkan stales which
have felt obliged to become their
associates In this war?
Demanded Open Doors.
The Russian representatives
have insisted, very justly, very
wisely, and In the true spirit of
modern democracy, that the con
ferences they have been holding
with the Teutonic and Turkish
statesmen should be held with

whole world as an audience was
desired.
To whom have we bean, listen
ing, those who speak trie spirit
and intention of the resolutions of
the German Reichstag of the Oth
of July last, the spirit and Inten
tion of the liberal leaders and
parties of Germany, or to those
who resist and defy that -spirit
and Intention and Jnsist upon con
quest and -subjugation?
Or are we listening. In fact, to
both, unreconciled and Jn open
and hopeless contradiction? These
are very serious and pregnant
questions. . Upon the answer o
them depends the .peace of 'the
world.
Challenge t Make Statement ."
But, whatever the results of the"
parleys at Rrest Lltoyslc, what
ever the confusions of counsel and
of purpose in the .utterances of
the spokesmen of the central em
pires, they have again attempted
to acquaint the world with their
objects iq the war .and have again
challenged their adversaries to
say what .Jhelr objects are and
.what sort of settlement they
would deem Just and satisfactory.
There Is no good reason why
that challenge should not be re
sponded to, and responded to with
the utmost candor. We did not
wait for It. Not once, but again
and again, we have laid our whole
thought and purpose before the
' world, not In general-terms only,
but each time with sufficient de
finition to make M, dear what
sort of definitive terms of settle
ment must necessarily spring out
of them.
Within the last week Mr. I.loyd
George has spoken with admir
able candor and In admirable
spirit for the people and govern
ment of Great Britain- There is
no confusion of counsel among
the adversaries of the central
powers, no jmcertalnty of prln
- clple, no vagueness of detail.
Foe Are Secretive.
The only secrecy of counsel, the
only lack of fearless frankness,
the only failure to make definite
statement of the, object of the
war, s with Germany and. her
allies. The Issues of life' and
death hang upon these definitions.
Ko statesman who has the least'
conception of his responsibility
ought for a moment' to permit
himself to continue this tragical
and appalling outpourlng'of blood
and treasure unless he is sure be--yond
a peradventure that the
objects of the vital sacrifice are
part and parcel of the very life
of society and that the people
for whom he speaks think them
right and imperative as he does.
Russians Ask Light.
There Is, moreover, a voice call
ing for these definitions of prln-'
ciple and of purposes which is,
it seems to mc. more thrilling and
more compelling than any of the
many moving voices with which
the troubled air of the world is
filled.
It Is the voice of the Russian
people. They are prostrate and
all but helpless. It would seem, be
