ROOSEVELT SCORES WOMAN'S PEACE PARTY Former I'rrnldent Denounce* It? Plat form as llotti "llnse and Silly." WASHINGTON, April 17.?Denounc ing as silly and base a demand for poaco which makes no mention of Bel gium'H wrongs, Theodoro Roosevelt, In a letter to Mrs. Julie Barrett Rubleo, of this city, assails the platform of the woman's party for constructive peace. A very large proportion of ultra paclllsts aro Influenced by physical cowardice, declared Mr. Roosevelt, who adds that "there is nothing more re pulslvo than to s?'0 people agitating for general righteousness in the ab Istract when they daro not stand up ; against wickedness In the concrete." "Fifty years ago," Mr. Roosevelt as | sorts, "the copperheads of tho North held exactly the views about peace j which are set forth in the platform you I inclosed, and to a man they voted ' against Abraham Lincoln. They did all they could to break up the Union and to obtain the triumph of slavery, becau?p they put peace as the highest of ail gods, just exactly as It Is put by tiie people who have constructed that paper you sent m*\ "I speak with scientific accuracy when I speak of this movement as both base and silly. It Is silly because It Is absolutely futile. It proposes to go on with Just tho same kind of futile agi tation which, by the experience of a century, and, above all. by the experi ence of the last thirty years, has proved wholly useless and on the whole slightly mischievous. "Not one particle of good will be ob tained by any such action as that out lined In that paper you sent. "I assume, of course, that you are for peace In reality and not merely for the name of peace, and that you aro for peaco based on Justice and right and not for peace that consecrates success ful wrong; for peace that consecrates wrong may bo actually worse than any war. "Above all, it Is base and evil to clamor for peace In the abstract, when silence Is kept about concrete and hid eous wrongs done to humanity at this very moment. Belgium has been tram , pled into bloody mire. Frightful j wrongs have been committed upon the j men, women and children of Belgium. I "The Belgians have fought valiantly ; against their oppressors. Yet this pa j per you inclose does not contain one I protest against the commission of such | wrongs as have been committed on j Belgium, and does denounce war in i such fashion as to include in the con jdemnatlon the Belgians just as much i as the oppressors of Belgium. "We have before us that concrete icase. Let the people who advocate the platform and principles you Inclosed 1 hold a meeting specifically to denounce 'the Invasion of Belgium by Germany, , and to demand that in the interests of i peace the United States do what it can | to put a stop to those wrongs. J.et 'them denounce Messrs. Wilson and j Bryan for trying to force through the j ship purchase bill, which was In the I interest of the power tl)at wronged i Belgium, and in spite of the fact that their action might tend to brln^ us ; into war with the powers that have [sought to defend Belgium. i "I.et them do something to show that I they mean what they say and that they ! are really striving for righteousness, j Until they do this let every wise and upright man and woman refuse to have anything more to do with a movement which is certainly both foolish and noxious, which Is accompanied by a peculiarly Ignoble abandonment of na tional duty and which if successful would do only harm, and the mere at tempt to accomplish which rightly ex poses our people to measureless con tempt" JOHN RUNNY PASSES CRISIS MovJnjf-l'lrInrr Comedian on Ills Way lo lleeovery, NEW YORK, April 17.?John Bunny, the moving-picture comedian, ill her* for three weeks, was said to-day to have passed the crisis of his illness, and to be on the way to recovery.

SMYRNA ON THE MAP MORE THAN 3,000 YEARS liumlmrded City Alrrayn II a? Hrfi (!?*?< Carnrannarr anil l'roduce Hxchangc, WASHINGTON, April 17.?Describ ing tho Turkish city of Smyrna, which has been bearing the brunt of an at tack In the near east, a statement of the Nutlouul Geographic Society says: "Smyrna has occupied ItH place upon tho map for more than 3,000 years, and through nil this time It has retained Its anclont name, Its mixed character of oust and west and Its significance In tho world of trade. From tho first It lias been a rich produco oxchango, | a great caravansary and an Important | harbor, receiving merchant fleets under every Hag. Known to tho olden Greeks as the first city of Asia,' It survives In the present, the greatest city In Asia Minor and tho second port of an ex tensive empire. "Whllo Eifciesus, Miletus, Sardls, Mag nesia, I'ergaiiiua and Mallcarnassus have faded away, Smyrna has contin ued Its story of untiring centuries. It has risen superior to every stress, re maining to-day what It was yesterday, as lasting as Mount Gagus, at Its back. Tho rise, splendor and decay of great empires have formed but momentary episodes in this city's life, whose his tory stretches from the eleventh cen tury before the birth of Christ down to the present day. It most truly de serves the title of Eternal City, for It. like the phoenix of mythology, has ever renewed its nerveless age by a more magnificent youth. "Smyrna was founded by Aeolian Greeks upon the natural outlet of an important trade route. It grew rapidly into wealth and power, and early took tho load among the cities of Asia Minor. Ionian Greeks conquered the city In tho seventh century 13. C., and under these masters It played a leading role in tho lonean League. Jealous of lis tremendous riches, tho Lydlanu cap tured and conscientiously destroyed Smyrna In 5?D B. C. Their endeavors were so thorough that there remained but a village until after the Mace- | (Ionian conquest. Alexander the Great 1 caused the city to be rebuilt, and It was laid out with extravagant mag nificence. Among the many beautiful buildings of this new city was the j Homereuin. whore the poet Ilomer was worshiped as a hero. The Seleucldas declared tho city sacred and inviolable, j "Jn the days of Roman conquest, Smyrna was tho great world center of art and learning, somewhat the Paris of that early ago. Tho Kotnans, who treated the city well, called It tho 'Philosophers' Grovo,* and also 'The Oasis of tho Muses and tho Graces.' For many generations Smyrna was the proudf.st Asiatic possession of the By zantine emplro of the Bast. In 1402 it ( was destroyed by the Mongols of Tam- j erlane, and such of Its Inhabitants an | could be found were killed. When it j foil to the Turks, Smyrna received an- j other loving nickname. It was called j 'The Eye of Asia Minor." "The city lies at the head of tho Gulf j of Smyrna, some 200 miles soutnwust ' of Constantinople, with which it is j now connected by rail. The foreground ] of the port Is level ground, while tho background Is cut by the sharp shoul- j der of Mt. Pagus. There Is a popula tion of more than 250,000, of which | about ono-half la Greek, one-fourth Mo- j hammedan, while Armenians and Jews : make up the greater part of the remain- i der. I "There were also a large number of | European residents before tho war. who. In the order of their numbers, were French, .English, Italian, Swiss and German. Greek is the language of greatest currency, and at the war's outbreak French was tho most useful tongue for the visiting foreigner." No Yellow Fever on Ship.

ANOTHER U. S. CARDINAL MAY BE CHOSEN IN ROME ArranK?mea<a BHdk Marie at Vatican to Hold Consistory Soon, ROME. April 17 (via Paris).?Ar rangements are being made at the Vat ican for holding a consistory, which may occur In the month of May or later. The announced reason for the holding of tho consistory 1h to secure tho appointment of a new chancollor of the Catholic Church, which poBt has been vacant slnco the death of Cardinal Anthony Aglladl March 19. This post can only be filled by appointment In a consistory. In reality, however, tho Pope wishes to take the opportunity, it la said, again to address the world with a sol emn allocution further to explain tin attitude of neutrality of the Holy Sm In Its efforts to re-establish peace with out any preference for the faithful among the belligerents on one side or tho otlior. It Is consldored probable that no new cardinals will be created, owing to the difficulty of avoiding misrepresenta tions, even If they were chosen from the clergy of neutral European coun tries. if cardinals are created thoy might be South Amerlcnn, Australian or even a fourth American. In tho , latter case the opinion Is expressed in i 1 some quarters hero that Archbishop 1 Ireland will be chosen. ANNIVERSARY OFFIRfT IS BEING CELEBRATED! .Son Francisco Kntcrs I pun Six Dnjn' .
