Wasiuvoto.v, April 2fi, Senators and

terms of commendation to-night of the
acceptance by President Wilson of the
proposal made by Argentina, Itrarll and

They declared (hat If mediation opened

The political significance of the event
In an International way ser.mcd to make a
strong Impression upon Congressmen.
They pointed out that for he first time
In history a concert of the American
Powers was about to adjudicate a mis
understanding between two sister repub
lics. The effect would be, members explain.
largely to enhance th? prestige of the
United States In Central and South
America, thus removing to tome extent
at least the prejudice that has long existed
to the south against the '"Colossus of the
North." The matter was set forth this
way by Representative Covington of Mary
"The people of this country have been j
prono to look down upon the Govern-)
ments of Central nnd South America. .
This was strikingly pointed out In a ie-1
cent publication of International law. i
"Ileference was made of the Inability
of the Anglo-Saxon mind to appreciate
the tremendous prospfrl'y of com- f the
South American republics, and to tho fact
that there are first class Governments

"It Is the hop of all concerned." said
Chairman Flood of the Houe Committee
on Foreign Affairs, "that mediation will
bring about an honorable peace."
Representative Cooper of Wisconsin,
ranking Republican member of the
Foreign Affairs Committee, made this
"This Is splendid. It Is admirable In pur
pose even If It falls. It will strongly Im
press Europe with the fuet that In the

'The significance of Argentina, Brazil
and Chile acting for two sister republics
that have become embroiled In war, or
were rapidly approaching war, cannot be
lost on the student of history. It marks
an epoch era In the relationship between
