H , THE PEACE OF VERSAILLES
H Without pomp and the fanfare of vic-
, '. torioua trumpets the great drama of
Hj , Prussian world conquest came to its tra-
H gic close at Versailles when Wednesday,
N May 7, 1919, the terms of the allied na-
1 tions were received by the German dele-
Hi .gates. Across that fateful volume of
H 80,000 words might have been written the
H fj words of the prophet "They, that take the
H sword shall perish wiih the" sword," for
Hf -whatever fortune follows in the path of
H overthrow the Prussian dream is gone for
Hf'j No people since Rome has cherished so
Hf' towering an ambition as the Germans and
Hij Tidnc, not even the Romans have, suffered
Hfj so,"swift and complete a downfall. It has
Hj l)een the greatest gamble in history and
Hi a hair's breadth has divided it from suc-
Hfj .Today Germany is prostrate. The peace
HJ terms which are imposed upon her and
Hlw -which she must accept or face a worse
H fate strip her of a considerable portion of
Hi her wealth and resources of revival. It
Hf breaks the saber she rattled so threaten-
H ingly in past crises and scatters her shin-
Hjj ing armor. On, the, east and southwest
H iier strategic boundaries are driven in.
H Her future on the sea is foreclosed.
Hff ' ,NeverJtheless thV Geman peopje remain
H; and they possess the qualities which give
Hji the only foundation to the Prussian dream
Hf - of power Vitality, self control, knowl-
Hi r dge, method, patient industry, these are
Hj !fcsr real strength and cannot be taken
Hj ' irom her. No nation of vital people has
Hj "been destroyed in modern times and it is
Bi because of her acute realization of theca-
Hj pacity of the German race and the resil-
H' iency of great peoples that France, her
B , neighbor, and England, her rival, have
Hj j insited upon conditions which strip her of
HT immediate power to attack.
H These terms will seem to many unduly
H v "harsh, to others not harsh enough. The
H 1 psycology of 1916 or 1917 is not the psy-
Hf chology of the Paris conference. By 1919
H compromise Has given way to .conquest,
H.j and the opprtunity ffered by the German
B g defeat to make security dbubly secure
H I lor those who for a generation had lived
H I under the shadow of the German sword
B I was humanely irresistible.
Hj I The situation developed is the most re-
H i -markable in modern times. JBut yester-
H day the old world was in the hands of
H I three or four great military powers,. Ger-
H many, Great Britain, Russia, Trance. To-
H I day Russia is divided into wrangling child
H S -states and given over to primitive experi-
H Ynentation. Germany is disarmed and
Hf impoverished. The Austro Hungarian
Hf composite is scattered. France, sore
H I stricken bv the war, is hoping to rise up-
HB I on the ruins of German enterprise. But
HLf Great Britain stands out in unrivaled
HHI puissance, more secure and more power-
Hf 1 ful than ever in her history, perhaps the
H greatest single power since Rome. Her
Hjf tnost formidable rivals, Russia and Ger-
B many, have been set far back in the race.
HI The only nation capable of challenging
H' her, the United States, is the nation with
H! t, which she is best able to live in peace, a
Hfj . nation of kindred mode of thought and
H!i action, of pofoundly pacific tendencies,
H!l without incompatible interests.
H If the world is not to have peace during
Hi this generation, it will be, so far as we
Hi can judge international conditions at this
HJ time, because Great Britain becomes in-
H flamed by her own vast power and culti-
Hk vates the seeds of revolt against her. But
H" she will not do so if she retains that gen-
H:' 5us for wise compromise and moderation
Hh upon Syhich'heisafety and progress in
H ' e V ave een ciy.founaed.'.
H The peace tryeatyt altfjoughHn.O' 5n-
H strument, consists of two parts, the pro-
visions establishing a league of nations,
and the conditions imposed upon Ger
many. So far as the latter are concerned, we
may assume they will be approved by our
government without attempt at amend
ment. They have been formulated after
protracted conference with the govern
ments associated with us for the over
throw of the German military power and
difference amongus now is not to be con
sidered. It was our interest that there
shouljl be no separate peace and we are
morally bound to support that which has
been agreed upon. As to the provisions
for the establishment of a league of na
tions, they are probably subject of care
ful consideration by the senate, and if in
the opinion of that body they, are suscep
tible of interpretation contrary to our es- '
sential interest or security they will be
adopted only with appopriate reservation.
Such action, however, will neither de
feat the project for a league nor postpone
that peace which is after all the most ur
' gent need of the country and of the world,
CUMMINS, PRESIDENT PRO TEM
The election by the Republican Senate
majority of Senator Albert Baird Cum
hiins to be president pro tern of the Sen
ate comes as a fine tribute to a most con
scientious and hard wbrking legislator.
4t is the testimonial of his colleagues to
his splendid ability. It is an honor rich
ly' deserved. It is a vigorous answer to
the Democratic press which has been try
ing ever .since the November elections 'to
sow dissension between what they were
wont to call the progressive and the stand
pat camps. It is an excellent indication
that whatever divergencies of oninion
might have existed prior to the family
row which culminated in the loss of Re
publican control in 1912, the Republican
party today is no longer a house divided
against itself, but united in opposition to
the party which once boasted Jefferson
as its great exemplar but accepted Wilson
and near-socialism as its dictator and
creed. Cummins became identified with
the so-called progressive wing of the Re
publican party, in company with Senator
'Dolliver, deceased, and others, he inter
posed several objections to', the Aldrich
amendments to the Republican tariff law
of 1909, Whatever may be the consensus
of opinion regarding' that law, it becamev
a dervl issue when the tariff law now on
the statute books superseded it 'in Octo
ber, 1913. Every Republican today is re
solved that the. present law must be re
pealed at .the earliest practicable oppor
tunity, and as for the Payne Aldrich law.
"Let the dead past bury its dead. Act,
'act in the living present."
To Senator Cummins is about to be pre
sented monumental opportunity. As
chairman of the Senate committee on In
terstate Commerce his will be the guiding
hand in drafting the legislation which is
necessary to restore the railroads to pri
vate control. This is perhaps the great
est problem which confronts the Republi
can party today complicated as it has pur
posely been by the wicked wilfulness of
the Wilson administration, which has at
tempted hopelessly to scramble the pro
perties. Cummins' knowledge of railroad
matters is second to that of no man in
Congress, and huge as the tack to be ac
complished the party is confident that the
Cummins solution will be one most accept-
. able to the great majority of the Ameri
can people. Certainly Iowa has reasonto
feel proud of the confidence and trust re
posed in her senior Senator.

DEMOCRACY OR MONARCHY?
"When that treaty comes back, gentle
men on this side will find the covenant
not only in it, but so may threads of the
treaty tied to the coveant that you cannot
dissect the covenant from the treaty with
out destroying the Whole vital structure."
When the President uttered those words
he knew that if his threat were carried
out it would mean the defeat of the peace
treaty, and a still further continuance of
a technical state of war. Yet such is the
character of the man that he has persisted
in his foolhardy course, and the country
has before it the consummation of his
rash, statement. The treaty and the
I league covenant are one and the same
docunjent, and in that form they will be
placed before the Senate and ratification
, y, Good or bad, according td Wilsonism, it
must be ratified. And yet .we arc i,sup-'r '
;posed,tp ibe:living.in democracy, while
the facts are'it smacks-more of monarchy.

The Progressives, the best friends the
Democrats ever had, have certainly got
ten their fill of democracy. In fact, since
the memorable 1912 campaign they have
had it dished up in measure overflowing.
And judging from the broadsides these
same Progressives are hurling at the ad
ministration they have repented in "sack
cloth and ashes." Perhaps, tto must ser
ious inditement against the administra
tion is that recently made by Seunt.br
