as to the results of the congress just
. closet* Although not so- designated

stitutes a reply to some of thesug
-gestiohs contained in the letter which
President Roosevelt addressed to the'
congress on its opening day. Mr.
Carnegie quotes ?$iese statements as
^ onctions ' ' and proceeds to answer
the?f as follows:: .
"Our peace-conference has brought
thfee\objections clearly . before us.
.^t-VFirst, Nations cannot submit all
questions to arbitration.
"ASuswer, Six of them .have recent

"Second, Justice is higher than

"Answer, The first principla.of nat
j ural justice forbid; men to 'be~judgcs

All law rests ,upon this throughout

unal,, n eyer by one ot' the parties sit

; "Third,;ir' is neither peace nor jus

* 'Answer^ Righteousness is simply
'dcangwhat is right. What is just is
?always right; what is unjust is al
ways wrong, it-being ?lie first princi
ple of justite that ;men shall not b6
judges in their own! cause to refuse

of righteousness is justice. There
