At that time the promotion of Major Selbt and Major Stone was announced. Maior Selby, who commanded Com pany O, lives at 318 Beckett street Prominent In Guard Major Stone, of Burlington, has been prominent in National Guard affairs for years. , , , Lieutenant Howard ls about thirty years old, and he had been In the Na tional Guard thirteen years before the war began. Ho went over in commana of a detachment of the Headquarters Company, which was equipped with one pounders. It was the duty of this de tachment to keep at the heels of the in fantrymen.

The 114th was placed in tho Fifty-seventh Brigade, under command of Brigadier General Larny S, Upton, whose wife is making her home ln Cynwyd, near here. General Upton was colonel of the Ninth Regulars In the terrific fighting south of the Solssons early In the American fighting. Colonel Thomas B. Landon, com mander of the Third, was placed In command of the 114th. and remained In the post until the regiment sailed, when he was replaced by Lieutenant Colonel George Buttle.

The 114th was assembled at Camp McClellan September 30, 1917, and went to France late in May, this year. In the transfer of troops at the camp Company I, of Woodbury, and Company L, of Atlajitlc City, were taken from the old Third and put into the 104th Engi neers, which probably took part ln the advance of the regiment.

"I fear the worst and I am confident that the city Is hard hit, as Lieutenant Howard Is a very dependable and re liable oung man. "While It Is very apparent that the city has suffered heavily, I am holding to tho hope that when we get to the official roster of the regiment, we may find that many Camden men have been transferred to other units, and In a measure will reduce the city's loss.

S. to Join in Government of Wnr-Strickcn States . Special Cable to Evening Public Ledger ComrioM, 1918, vv Ktto York Timet Co. London, Dec. 7. The formal preliminary Peace Con ference 13 unlikely to assemble until after the New Tear, Arthur J. Balfour tells your correspondent. This, he ex plained, was only his personal view, as the procedure must be settled when tho representatives of tho associated gov ernments meet. The British general elections would prevent, he thought, Lloyd George or any of his colleagues from being ln Paris before December IB, and then would ensue a period of consultations on the Immensely complicated ques tions to come before the conference. "Somi of these," Mr. Balfour said, "may be carried on formally, some In formally and others, perhaps, almost casually, but I hope and expect that they will lead to a most Illuminating Interchange of ideas." I Speaking of tho conference Itself, the British Foreign Minister expressed the opinion that the preliminary ses sions would be the most important of all. According to precedent the country In which it was held would determlno tho procedure and decide on tho chairman. As for Mr. Wilson's fourteen points he took them rather as a guide to tho general policy than a formal lerral statement of tho limits of V,. e cisions to be reached. Mr. Balfour could give no idea as to when the President could come to this country. He expressed great desire to see him here, but said the date of his visit must depend on nls own conveni ence. Asked as to the position of Russia at the confeicnce, Mr. Balfour said: "It is extremely difficult to say that now. In Russia the Bolshevlkl seem to control certain parts and other Gov ernments other parts. It must not be forgotten that there are certain frag ments of ancient Russia States in the northwest, like Finland which ask for complete Independence, and I think ought to have it. The conference must decide what line to take toward them; but unless things change completely, I see no prospect of any government hav ing title to represent Russia a3 wo used to think of it." Then Mr. Balfour was asked if he had seen the Round Table suggestion that the United States would be Invited to take an aclve part ln governim; somo of the territories left without Governments by the war. "Personally, I should wish," he re plied, "to see the United States take its full share in the work of the league of nations. This Is merely my own view, and I don't knew what jour President thinks. "It Is all very vague speculation, but I am emphatic in my opinion that the creation of something like a workable international machinery for this pur pose ls the highest function the con ference can propose for itself. I do not think the complexity of the problem can bo exaggerated. "One of the most striking and illu minating phrases of President Wilson apoke of making the world safe for democracy. I don't think the world will be safe for democracy merely by mul tiplying democratic states Probably the number of democratic Btates will be enormously Increased ; but we must not assume that because we have recreated the map of Europe wars will be Impos sible, or el en unlikely. "I do not, indeed, believe that true democracy will be capable of such long designed criminal schemes as the autoc racies have proven themselves capable of. Germany cherished and deliberately pursued a farslghted policy of interna tional crime that I think it ts Impossible that a truo democratic state could ac complish. League a Trnatce Mr. Balfour then referred to the his tory of the Balkan States, and the criti cism that the Allies were about to Bal kanlze Europe, and create a. sstem of Binall States, ever ready to fly at one another's throats. He went on: "It would be intolerable If the United States and the associated Powers were to call Into belns all these small States and make no provision to make aure that Europe was not asaln to be turned Into a cockpit. It ls for tills reason that I bolleve a learue of nations is needed not only to control the criminal instincts of treat autocracies,' nut to see that war should not atnin be permitted to devastate the world. I think that the league ought to act as trustee of these countries that nave not yet reached the state at which true democracy can be applied. Democracy is not a suit of clothes that can be put on at any stage oi Development. ur. uauour paused, men said very earnestly: "May I add that I regard this as one of the greatest tasks before the conference? We may fall, but we must make an effort to deal with the prob lems thrust on mankind; and I think the prominence President Wilson has given the subject Is a valuable contribu tion to the history of civilization."
