FOR INTERNATIONAL PEACE.
The undersigned have been asso
ciated for some years in the execu
tion of a trust to promote interna
tional peace and our duties have in
volved a continual survey of the ef
forts to that end throughout the
We wish to say to all friends of
peace that the dreadful war now
ruging affords no just cause for dis
couragement, no discredit to past ef
forts, and no reason to doubt that
still greater efforts in the future may
bu effective and useful.
The war itself is teaching the gos
pel of pnuc? through a lesson a<?
shojcktng and so terrible .tyia't the
most indifferent can not fail to at
tend and understand it.
Not only have the destruction of
life, the devastation and the suffer
ing in the warring countries passed
all experience, but 'the cessation of
production, the closing or markets,
the blocking of tr .df> routes, the in
terruption of exchanges, have af
fected industry and caused ruin and
poverty in all the peaceful countries
of the world;
The universal interdependence of
nations has been demonstrated and
the truth forced upon every mind
that the peace of all nations is the
vital concern of every nation.
To cast our weak protest now
among the' tremendous/ forces that
are urging vm the great conflct would
be futile; but the end of this war
will come before long and then the
great question will stand for answer:
Shall the lesson be forgotten; tbe
That question th? bell g?rent 'na
tions only will have the cover to
answer; but every one in tbe world
will be entitled to be heard upon It,
for it wll> be a question of civiliza
tion, the most momentous of our era.
It seems incredible that after this
the stricken people will set their feet
in the same old paths of policy and
suspicion which must lead .hem
again to the same result. '
Finding ?spressiottiithrough a great
multitude of voices, everywhere the
general public opionion x>f mankind
should influence Che minds o' the
negotiators who settle the term*, of
peace and Inspire them to a new de
parture in the establishment of Jus
tice as the rule of international re
While we must not be overconfi
dent of our Individual qualiQcatrono
to point out the detailed methods
through which the result may be ac
complished, we may - still advocate
measures which seem practicable and
appropriate to the purpose.
We can see that definite rules of
national conduct should be agreed
upon; that a court of competent jur
isdiction should be established to
judgo of national conformity to those
rules; and that, new sanctions should
be' provided to compel respect for
the Judgments rendered.
Above all the motive and spirit or
the aew institutions should be clearly
and fully, not the promotion of am
bition or tbe extension of power, but
the safeguarding of human rights and ,
the perfection of individual liberty.
Toward this high end the courage
and hope' and conviction of the
humblest citizen of the most distant
land may contribute.

come for Year Sold
WASHINGTON', Feb. 16.?Income
from farm products and crop share
rentals must be included in tax re
turns of income for the year in which
they are sold for money or a money
equivalent, according to a decision
made public today by Commissioner
of Internal Revenue Osborn.
When farm products are held for
favorable products, the decision
says, no deduction on account of
shrinkage in weight or physical value
or losses by detieration will be allow
ed. Cost of stock purchased for re
sale is an allowable deduction, but
that of stock for breeding purposes
is regarded as capital invested and
not as an allowable deduction, ex
cept when such stock dies of disease
or Is destroyed without preparation by
order of State or federal authorities.
Cost of tools may be deducted, but
not that of farm machinery.
"A reasonable allowance for de
preciation," will bo allowed on farm
buildings, other than the owners
dwelling, on farm machinery and oth
er physical property.
A person cultivating or operating
n farm for recreation or pleasure on
a basis other than the recognized
principles of commercial farming, the
rcKult of which is a continual loss
from year to year," the decision adds,
"Is not regarded as a farmer. In such
cases, if the expense occurred in con
nection with the farm are in excess
of the receipts therefrom, the entire
receipts from sale or products may be
ignored in rendering a return of in
conic; and the expenses incurred be
ing regarded.as personal expenses will
not constitute allowable deductions in
