MISSOULA, MONTANA, TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 12, 1918. PRICE FIVE • .-r< America Must Fight Until Justice Can Be Assured, Says Wilson Favors Czernin's Speech but Bitterly A$sail$f Proposals Coming From Von Hertling. Washington, Fob. 11.—President Wilson addressed congress today to clear the atmosphere of any confusion lesulting from the recent speeches on I'oaee terms by the Herman chancellor and the Austro-Hungarian foreign minister and to reiterate that until the military masters of Germany arc ready to consider peace on principles of jus tice the United States will continue the. fight it is just beginning for the safety of itseif and mankind. In the speech of Count von Hertling. the German chancellor, the president found no approach to the path of ■peace, but rather a proposal to end the war on German terms and to set up a league of nations to maintain the bal ance of power so established. Count Ozernin, the Austrian spokesman, the president said, employed .a very friendly tone, seemed to see the fun - ilamental elements of peace with clear eyes and probably would have gone much further if il hud not. been for Austria's alliances and her dependence upon Germany. America Determined. Members of congress accept cd (lie address not as a peace message, but as a notice to the central powers that the United States cannot be turned aside from the object for which it is fight ing and a warning to congress and the American people that the task of send ing tHe nation's fighting men to the front musL not be interfered with by equivocal and misleading utterances of Teutonic statesmen. The president was warmly received and cheered as lie concluded, and leaders without, respect to party afterward expressed hearty approval of his wofds. Tlie address had been prepared after conferences during the past few days with Colonel K. M. House, who headed 1he American mission to the gfeat inter-allied conference. As usual, the president announced his coming only long enough in advance to permit of arrangements for a joint session In the house chamber. Clears Peace Muddle. While In official and diplomatic quarters today there was a disposition to let the president's address speak for itself without interpretation, there ap parently was no division of opinion on the point that his prime object was to bring the "extra official negotiations" as some observers have termed the speech making of the chief statesmen of the nations at war, back to the fun damental issues, the settlement of each question on principles of justice: the cessation of the barter of provinces und peoples; the settlement of terri torial questions for the benefit of the populations concerned and finally, the recognition of national aspirations as a basis of permanent peace. Another purpose served. It was pointed out. is to remind the German reichstag of the great distance that Fount von Hertling has traveled from its resolutions of last July regarding self determination of the rights of small nations and peoples, no annexa tions, contributions, or punitive «lam ages. Responsive echoes among the German Socialists and liberals may In tlie end bring cumulative pressure to bear upon the war lords at present controlling the fate of Germany. Not Recognize Agreements. ■ Still another object of the address, it was said, was to serve notice in ad vance that any pçaee treaties result ing from the Brest-Uitovsk confer ences, would not of necessity be re garded as binding upon America or the entente allies. "We cannot have general peace for the asking, or by the mere arrange ment of a peace conference," Mr. Wil son salil. "It cannot bo pieced lo gether out of Individual understand ings between powerful states. All the parties to this war must join In the settlement of every issue any where involved in it because what we are asking is a peace that we can all unite to guarantee and maintain and every iteneof it must be submitted to the common judgment whether it l«e right and fair; an act of justice rather than a bargain between sovrr-. cigns." Alliss Not Consulted. The statement was made in high officials quarters that the entente al lies were not consulted by President Wilson in the preparation of his ad dress nor was it even made known to • them that It was to be delivered. How ever. It was pointed out that this was not to be taken as indicating any lack of unity of purpose and aims between the co-belligerents as nowhere in his address did the president depart from any of the principles he has laid down in common with the British, French and Italian premiers in their preceding public utterances regarding war alms. ni-i.-..,.. , u „1 . , _ , ... , . , ... a ^ e kee " interest extra of fteial negotiations which depart so .(Continued on Pag» Three.)
