Recognizing the general belief that
the Far East Is the new danger spot,
America has sought the co-operation
of eight other Powers with vital in
terests in the Orient to allay the dan
ger of a "next world war."
Practical and Humanitarian.
This is generally regarded as the
greatest humanitarian crusade in the
history of mankind. But it is also a
practical scheme for material relief
from the overwhelming burden of tax
ation and debt.
In no sense is the conference a
peace parley, as the world has known
peace parleys. There is no enemy
to be punished, no new frontier align
mionts to be worked out, no spoils
of war to be parceled and no new
alliances to be contracted with a view
to future military co-operation. It
was called primarily to lighten the
burdens of a war-weary world and to
prevent such hurdens from being im.
posed in the future. Diplomatic pro
cedure will be followed, however.
The committees will meet behind
closed doors, but the American Gov
ernment is deterriined that no secret
diplomatic agreements shall creep in.
The final decisions will be made
known fully to the whole world. Eng
lish will be the official language.
Agenda Covers Wide Range.
The agenda, or official program of
matters to be considered, covers a
troni-ndous range of territory, especi

Under the heading of "Pacific and
Far Eastern Questions," the confer
ence will consider China and Siberia.
Here are two countries with the terri
torial magnitude, the immensity of
population, and the natural wealth of
mighty empires; but they are helpless
in the sense of modern development.
It is part of the humanitarian pro
gram of America to help them and to
protect them in the future from ag
gressions, either warlike or peacefully
America is inspired by more than
one motive in this respect to save to
the peoples of these countries the
riches that are their own by right of
justice and legal proprietorship, and

policy of the Moscow government
to allow the partition of Russis so

I believe that when we generelise
the motives that took the yeuths who
died in the geat war st 4t the light
of life and took them out at presimely
the age when life is 21eet deianle. we
shall find that the dominating purpose
was certainly no narrow devotion to
the "glory" or "Oepanioa" Of any
particular country. but a wide-epirited
hostility to wrong and r .
That is clearly shown the nature
of the appeals that were made In
every country to sustain the spirit of
its soldiers. If national glory and pa
triotism had been the ruling motive
of those young men, then manifestly
their propagandas would have con
corned themselves mainly with na
tional honor and flag idolatry. But
they did not do so.
Nowadays flags fly better on
parades and stoop fronts than on
battle fields. The war propaganda.
Iwell steadily and insistently upon
the wickedness and unrighteousness
of the enemy, upon the dangers of
being overwhelmed by foreign
tyranny and particularly upon the
fact that the enemy had planned and
made the war. These boys fought
best on that-everywhere.
So far as the common men in
every belligerent country went, there
fore, the great war was a war against
wrong, against force, against war
itself. Whatever it was in the
thoughts of the diplomatists, It was
that in the minds of the boys who
died. In the minds of those young
and generous millions, who are per
sonified in the Unknown Soldier of
the Great War, in the minds of the
iermans and Russians who fought so
stoutly, quite as much as the Ameri
cans, British. French or Italians. the
war was a war to end war.
And that marks our obligation.
Insalt To Dead.
Every speech that Is made beside
the graves of these unknown soldiers
who lie now in the comradeship of
youthful death, every speech which
exalts patriotism above peace, which
hints at reparations and revenges.
which cries for mean alliances to sus
tain the traditions of the conflict.
which exalts national security over
the common welfare, which wage the
"glorious flag" of this nation or that
in the face of the universal courage
and tragedy of mankind. Is an insult
and an outrage upon the dead youth
who lies below.
He sought justice and law in the
world, as he conceived these things,
and whoever approaches his resting
place unprepared to serve the estab
lishment of a world law and world
justice. breathing the vulgar cants
and catchwords of a patriotism out
worn and of conflicts that he died to
end, commits a monstrous sacrilege
and nine against all mankind.
Japan. and perhaps France. it is
believed that no invited delegation
came with a set program or with
counter proposals. Japan, in order
to maintain her prestige at home
