Unless Belligerents Can Be
American Intervention i
President Can Not
Washington, May 25.?President
Wilson told callers today that the
iitervention of a neutral in behalf of
peace of Europe could rest only on a
mutual understanding by the 'belligerents
that terms to be arranged are
to conserve the interests of all, and
of the world at large, rather than
those of a particular nation or group
of nations among the warring powers.
Mr. Wilson did not disclose any definite
plan of action he may have
formulated in regard to peace nor
authorize a formal statement of his
attitude. jHis callers gained an impression,
however, that the president
would entertain suggestions that he
extend his good offices to. the bellig.
erents to bring about peace only when
the conditions he outlined were like^

The Still Small Voice.

"I would like therefore to think the
spirit of this occasion could be expressed
if we imagined ourselves lifting
some sacred emblem of counsel
and of peace of accommodation and
I ricrVitpmic ind2ment before the na
**Qaww?,j ? O ? -?
tions of the world and reminding
them of that passage in scripture,
AFTER THE WIND, AFTER THE
EARTHQUAKE, AFTER THE FIRE,
THE STILL SMALL VOICE OF HUMANITY."
The words in capitals above, from
the closing paragraph of President
Wilson's speech at Charlotte, seem
to have been generally regarded as
a literal quotation from the Bible. >
The newspaper reports of the the
speech place the closing phrase in
quotation marks. The fact is. h.ow
ever, the president merely gave a
brief and striking condensation of ^
several iverses of scripture. His ^
meaning may be more fully grasped |
by reading the verses in full, or,
better still, the whole of the 19th
chapter of First Kings.
Elijah, fleeing from the death sentence
pronounced by Jezebel, had
gone far into the <wilderness. Tired,
hungry and disheartened, the old
j prophet sat down under a juniper
I tree and prayed that he might die.
Then he slept, and an angel touched f
him and showed himi food which he
ate. He was directed to "stand Up
en the mount before the Lord."
No doubt Elijah expected the Lord
to come w.lh some mighty manifestation
of power. As he stood there,
waiting, we arS told, (in 1 Kings,
"A great and strong wind rent the
mountaino. and brake. In pieces the
rocks bttiore ite Lord; but the Lord
was not in the wind. And after the
wind an', earthquake; hut tne L?or<i
was cot in the earthquake, And after
the-earthquake a fire; and the
Lord was not in the fire. And after
the-fire a still small voice." I
It was the voice of God, which J
asked, "What doest thou here Eli"jah?"
and gave him directions for
his final work on earth and the selection
ot his successor, Elisha.
May we hope, with'President Wileon,
that, after the awful cataclysm
in Europe, in which the; Lord is pot,
there may come His still small voice,
directing the whole of humanity to
- - " a
permanent peace and nappmess. '
