begun in Ghent on Christmas Ehre
with a banquet tendered by the Bur
gomaster .to 50 representatives of thc
United States. 50 Englishmen and 50
Canadians in the hall where the treaty
was signed. This plan . ls upset by
the fact the ancient Belgian city now
ls occupied by the Germans, with
whom England is at war.
To mark the day. tho American
and British committees, which bad
been arranging for the peace cente
nary, issued communications for sim
ultaneous publication Thursday morn
ing in the newspapers in England and
the United States. I
The British statement expresses the '
hope thut "Hbo disarmed frontier be
tween fM United States, and Canada
may long continue aa an example to
the ' world of the safe defence of the
m. dal respect'and trust in the af
fairs of nations," and prays tllat "tho
peace between thc British and Ameri
can democracies, which has so long
endured, may never be broken." The
British committee* has purchased Snt
grav Manor, the ancestral home of
George Washington, in England, with
a view to presenting lt to the Ameri
can people, hut this feature of the cel
ebration also has been postponed un
til after the war.
The American committee, notwith
standing the war, purposes to carry
out In part Its original intention ot
celebrating the peace centenary, and
Cn its communication issued over the
signature of a 'number of widely
known citizens, urges suitable com
m?moration of ratification of the
