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-.
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.
