the benefit of tho foreign delegate!. In responding
as president-elect of tho congress. Mr. Paine ex
pressed the faith that peace throughout the worM
was not Jar distant, a result which, he saJJ. was
to i« largely brought about by the cessation of th«
rivalry among nations. He pointed out that the
cari*e of peac« bad made greater progress In th
last thirteen years than any other cau*e In th»
world. Th© speaker"* characterization of «se:reurj

should look forward to and plan for an Inter*
national co-grece of all nations. Nt which the pea.«

of the foreign delegates then spoke briefly. 11

national Peace Bureau for 1301 was read by Becre.
tary Troebieod. The report, after reviewing the
efforts for Inducing Japan and Russia to have re
course to a friendly solution of the conflict, con
tinues in part as follows: .
In contrast to the gloomy pictures which the
last year gives us from the point of view of the
peace movement, we are happy to be able to put
down to the credit of the year a number of en

Ex-Minister Presides Over Big Public Meet
ing in Tremont Temple.
Boston, Oct. 4.— Tremont Temple was the scene
to-night of a great public meeting, under the direc
tion of the Peace Congress, to hear from distin
guished publicists of the work and Influence of tho
Hague Tribunal. A part of the main floor was re
served for foreign delegates.] Among the persons
on the platform wore Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, Rob
ert Treat Paine, president of the congress, and the
speakers of the evening. M. Gustav Hubbard. mem
ber of the French Chamber of Deputies; Professor
Quidde, of Munich: J. O. Alexander, secretary of
the International Law Association, and Dr. XV.
Evans Darby, secretary of the English Pea^e So
Secretary Trueblood referred to the absence of
Andrew V. White. ex-Mlnlster to Germany, /ho
was to have presided at the meeting but was de
tained on account of Illness. He then introduced
Oscar 8. Straus, former United States Minister to
Turkey and member of The Hague Court, as the
presiding officer. Mr. Straus paid a high tribute
to the diplomatic and scholarly ability of ex-
a 'ia!» ttr White. After sketching the growth of the
universal desire and endeavors toward peace. Mr.
Etraus continued in part:
The work of The Hague conference, the estab
lishment of the permanent court of international
arbitration by the representatives of the tweatjr
six leading nations of the world, marks not onl>
the crowning glory of the nineteenth century. but,
with God bleesife-s. the nvofct enduring humani
tarian achievement of the ages. Although the
time was not yet ripe to enable this congress «>
succeed In lessening: the armaments of war. tne
very establishment of the permanent tribunal, wttii
us fourscore members, ever ready to re s P o , at°
the nations' call for the adjustment o''" 1 "na
tional differences, cannot fall in time «ffecti\ei>
to contribute to that Inevitable end and tend more
and more tr bring "the future of humanity under
the niujest/ of the law."
As Americans and hopeful advocates of T>»ac*
you win pardon the justified pride we feel in the
tribute paid to our country only a few days n?o
by that distinguished French peace advocate, pub
licist and statesman, a leading delegate to the
peace conference and a memoer of the permanent
tribunal. Baron d'Estournelles de. Constant. After
expressing his regret for his Inability to be present
with us. n regret which I am sure Is shared by
every one here, he said:
"I had hoped at Boston to recognize publicly the
grant and decisive services rendered to the cause
of International arbitration by the United States.
and particularly by President Roosevelt. Better
than any one, I know that the court at The Hague
stood deserted, abandoned and ridiculed until the
day when he had the courage, generosity and fore
sight to save It. That act alone has entitled him
to tho thanks of ell Europe for his pacific and
liberal spirit."
Mr. Straus said that the present Congress and
future congresses coild not. In his judgment, ad
dress themselves to a more practical and imperative
subject than that of ascertaining ami developing
the morit ac-Ttable and effective method of in
voking and applying the Initiative in bringing dis
pute* between nations to the Hague tribunal. Mr.
Strauss speech was listened to with marked at
tention and received with applause. Joseph G.
Alexander, of England, the next speaker, said that
the International Law Association, which he repre
sented, always considered international arnitration
as a great Ideal worthy of attainment He contin
ued In cart:
The Hague conference was first Intended to con
sider the subject of disarmament, but although un
successful in this, it achieved me wondenuj euc
c*bs of constituting a permanent tribunal or aroi
tration. It is tho beginning of organized lp«««. or
the substitution of a machinery of arbitrament oy

and that power is public opinion.
At the meeting heid to-ntght under the auspice*
of the Christian Endeavor Societies. In the Spark
Street Church, the Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark pre
sided. The edifice was crowded. In taking the
chair Dr. Clark referred to the formation of the
International Christian Endeavor Brotherhood in
London last June. He added:
These representatives of many lands, speaking
different languages, with different traditions be
hind them, owing allegiance to different forms of
government, bar.de.i themselves together into an

Salutary Advice on Independence
Given by Governor Wright.
Manila, Oct. 4. — The Federal party has given
a dinner to the delegation ot leading natives of
tho archipelago who have recently returned from
a visit to tho United States. In their speeches
tho members of the delegation spoke In high
praise of the treatment accorded them In the
United States. Each touched on the tndepend-*
» :; a movement, and made an urgent plea for a
popular assembly at once and full independence
nt an early date, except Vlctorino Mapa, asso
ciate justice of tho Supreme Court, who spoke
In a different tone. He advised his people to
have confidence la the people of the United
States and to prepare for the time v hen their
hopes would be fulfilled. r
Governor Luke E. Wright made the principal
speech at the dinner, and when he finished he
was warmly cheered. Ills address was an able
one. and he gave the guests nome important
facts bearing on the subject of independence
Ho spoke as follows:
Some seem to think that independence will
work miracles and bring about the millennium
You make th« claim, and I believe that your
claim Is just, that with the opportunity and ex
perience you are capable of better things The
aspirations of a people or an Individual for bet
ter things are praiseworthy, if they are con
sistent and sensible and reasonable in char
The South American republics, where revolu
tions are rife and where each country in torn
continually in factional strife, are fashioned on
the United State* model, but they have demon
strated that the people have mad* a failure in
self-government. Now, the Americans' arrival
here was the result of an accident, the victory
of Manila Bay. They found themselves charged
with the responsibility of government, and felt
•t their duty to take care of the country until
its people would develop a capacity to take care
of it themselves.
What the returning commissioners say about
the kindly feeling throughout America and the
purpose to assure to them the greatest degree of
liberty is the trutn to-d»y. nnd ever nince we
put our foot on these, islands It has been the
truth—the same old truth. I think if would not
be out of plat to say that the members of the
commission who arrived here in 1900 have
proved that they did not come to destroy, but
to benefit you. Is It not true that you now elect
your municipal and provincial utnctals. and that
a greater number of employes of the govern
ment are Filipinos? Have you not three repre
sentative on the commission Itself? How many
more centuries would you have remained here
under Spanish rule before you would have en
joyed what you have under cix years of Ameri
can occupation? How often do you think It
would be possible for the Federal party to give
a dinner where the guests could talk freely of
Independence? As much as we endeavor to do
for these people, you can readily understand how

The diplomacy which led up to the acquisition of
the Louisiana Territory lurnishes one of th« moat
resting incidents in the world's history. 1 ne.
establishment of a republic devoted to the inter
ests of and affording liberty of conscience, and
freedom 01 action to its citizens was an experi
ment ip government which could not have suc
ceeded if any restraint had been placed upon that
liberty, or if its Constitution had not been broad
enough to me*t the demaaoa of a growiug coun
try. WMI« there was authority for the admis
sion of new States, there was no constitutional
Permission for the purchase of territory. « ben we
look over the results which have followed this ex
pansion of our country, whea we calculate, our
magnirtcent growth In population ami wealth, all
of these appear insigniacunt beside t:io result
which was accomplished in showing to the world
tnai we were living under a Constitution broad
enough In Its provisions to be so interpreted as to
taaui* success to popular government, l.vt joi
fcrson and his advisers acted wisely in so con
struing their power at that time is undoubted. If
thfre were no other achievements of that wonder
ful administration, then this alone would suffice to
make it a memorable one.
That the acquisition or this territory was ac
complished through peaceful means, rather than
by bloodshed, was another triumph tor civiliza
tion. While wars have come since ar.d may come
In the future, the plan or arbitration which has
been adopted so generally by this and otter na
tions may. perhaps, have had Us inception in this
peaceful solution of a burning and important ques
tion to this country. Our Union now Is one that
is composed of commonwealths bound together by
all that means common inter "St. the coraaion wai
and common protection of all the people. It leads
to the hope that when the rearesentative* or all
the. States have decreed by a majority for that
which Is for the best interest of the wh=>e coun
try, then these question* should no longer b* th«
subject of partisanship or party difference, but
the government should have the legal supporter

Illustrations cf the value of careful marshalling

The Mission of Whiskey, Tobacco en&
The Creator made all things, we believe.
If so. He must have made these.
We know what He made food and water tot\
and air and sunshine, but why Whiskey. To
bacco and Coffee?
They are here sure enough and each perfbna.
ing its work.
There must be some great plan behtnd It all;
the thoughtful man seeKs to understand some
thing of that plan and thereby to Judge these
articles for their true worth.
Let us not sar 'bad" or "gooi" without tak
ing testimony.
There are times and conditions waen it cer
tainly s-err.s to the casual observer that these
stimulant narcotics are real blessings.
Right here 13 the ambush that conceal* a
"killing" enemy.
One can slip into the habit of either whiak-y.
tobacco or coffee easy enough, but .0 "untanjl* 1 "
is often a fearful struggle.
It seems plain that there are circumstances
when the narcotic effect of these poisons 13 for
th« moment beneficial, but the fearful argument
against them is that seldom ever does one find
a steady user of either whiskey, coffee or to
bacco free rcm disease of some kisd.
Certainly powerful elements in their effect on
the human race.
It is a matter of daily history testiSeti to by
literally millions of people, that Whiskey. To
bacco and Coffee are smiling, promising, beguil
ing frU-nd3 on the start, but »iw»»* false as
t.e'.l itself In the end. Once they get firm hold
enough to show their strength, they insist upon
governing and drive the victim steadily towards
11! health in some form: if permlued to continue
to rule, they will not let up until physical and
mental ruin sets in.
A man under that sDell (and "under the
epell" is correct), of any one i*4 these drug?.
frequently assures himself and his friends.
"W'h" I can Uave oft any time I want to. I did
quit for a week Just to shoT I could." It is a
sure mark vt the eiave when one gets to that
stage. He wiggled through a week fightingr
every day to break the spell, was finally
whipped, and began his slavery ail over again.
The slave (Coffee slave as well as Tobacco and
Whiskey) dally reviews his condition, sees per
fectly plain the steady encroachments of dis
ease, how the nerves get weaker day by day
and demand the drug -that seems to smile and
offer relief for a few minute? and then leave
the diseased condition plainer to view than ever
and growing wor3<». Many times the Coffee
slave realizes that he 13 between two fires. Ha
feels bad if he leaves o.T an.i a little worse If
he drinks and allows the effect to wear off. ">
So it goes on from day to cay. £.very nijlit
the struggling victim promises himself that h«»
will break the habit and next day when ha feeia
a little bad (as he is <iuite sure to) breaks, net
the habit, but his own resolution. li :3 nearly
always a tough fight, with disaster ahead fur»
ii the habit wins. *■
There have been hundreds of thousands of
people driven to their graves through riisea?-*
brought 0:1 by coffee drinkir-s alone, ar.d it i*
quite certain that mor human misery la caused
by coffee ar.d tobacco than by whiskey, for Uta
two first are more widely used, ar.d more hidden
and insidious In the effect on nerves, heart an i
other vital organs, and are thus unsuspected
until much of the dangerous work is done.
Now. Reader, what in your opinion as to Iba
real use th* Creator has for these thlr.33? Tak»
a look at the Question from this point of view.
There Is a law of Nature and of Nature's God
that things slowly evolve from lower planes t<>
higher, a sturdy, steady and dignified advance
toward more perfect things i:i both ths Physical
and Spiritual world. The ponderous tread of
evolutionary development la fixed by the In
finite and will not be Quickened out of natural
law by any of man's meti
Therefore we see many illustrations showing:
how nature checks too r-CMti advance. Illinois
raises phenomenal crops of corn for two or three
years. If she continued to do bo every year her
farmers would advance In wealth tar beyond
those of other sections or countries. So Nature
Interposes a bar every three or four years, sod
brings on a "bad year.™
Here we see the leveling influence at wort
A man is prosperous in his business for a
number of years and grows rich. Then Natnr*
sets the 'leveling Influence" at work en fcta.
Some of his investments lose. he becomes lux
urious and lazy. Perhaps it 13 whiskey, tobacco.
coffee, women, gambling, or some other form.
The Intent and purpose Is to le*«l him. K?e?
him from evolving too far ah*-- of the masses.
A nation becomes prosperous and great 12k»
ancient lioire. If no leveling influence set In
she would dominate the world perhaps for all
time- But Dame Nature sets her arm;* of "levei
ers*' *« work. Luxury, over-eating and drink
bsg?, licentiousness, waste and extravagance in
dulgences of all kind*, then comes the creek.
Sure Pur)». S'.:re.
The law of the unit is (he law of the mass.
Man goes through the san proce33. Weakness
tin childhood), gradual growth cf strength, en
ersty, thrift, probity, prosperity, wealth, com
fort, ease, relaxation, self-indulgence, luxury.
Idleness, waste, debauchery, disease, and th*
wreck fellows. The "lereleta" are In the bushes
along the pathway of every successful man aad
woman arc! they 'on? the majority.
Only row and then can a man s:and out
against there Irratarsr' and hold his fortune,
fvime and health to toe end. >
So the Creator has use for Whiskey. Tobacco
and Coffee to !e\e! down the successful ones
*n<J thosa who show fljns cf beinj successful,
and keep them tack in the race, so that the
great "field" ith? musei) may not be U!t too
