Jana M.-Tm> posalbUlty of the formation of a langue of na tions, the necessity of such a plan and the agreements necessary to tao succosa of such a Mague, bara been fully sat forth by Viscount Orey, for mer British foreign secretary. These st? toman ta wer? given out by the British Information Service. Viscount Grey's statement, in part, follows: "This war is the greatest trial of which there is any record In history. If war does not teach mankind new lass uns that will so domin?t? thought and feeling of those who survive It and those who succeed the survivor? as to make new thing? possible, then war will be the greatest catastrophe aa well as the most grievous trial and suffering of which mankind has any record.

"First the idea must be adopted with earnestness and conviction by the executive heads of stata It must become an essential pert of their po litical policy, one of then- chief rea sons for being or continuing to be responsible for the policy of their state. This Ceaatry Observed. "Wilson and his country have had in this matter the groat advantage of having been for more than two years and a half before April 1911. able to observe the war as neutrals, free from intense anxiety and effort that absorb sll thought and energy of belligerents. They were able not only to observe but to reflect and to draw* conclusions. One of the conclusions has been that If the world of which they form an Important part is to be saved from what they consider disaster, they must enter the war against Germany. Another has been that if national liberty and peace are to be secure In future there must M a League of Nations to secure them. "Germany has to be convinced that force does not pay: that the policy of her military rulers Inflict Intoler able and also unnecesary suffsrtng upon her and that when the world Is ? free from menace of these military rulers, with their sharp swords, shining armor and mailed fists, Ger many will find peaceful development assured and preferable to expansion by war and will realise that con dition of true security for one nation Is the sense of security on the part of all nations. "Till Germany feels this to be true there can be no League of Nations, In* the sense Intended by President Wilson. ?stand Candlrloa. 'The second condition essential j to the foundation of the mainte nance of the League of Nations is j that governments and peoples of the 8tates willing to found it under stand clearly that it will Impose ! some limitation upon the national action of each, and may entail some Inconvenient obligation. Smaller and weaker nations will have the rights that must be respected and unheld by the league. "Stronger nations must forego the right to make their Interests prevail against the weaker force, and all State? must forego the right In any dispute to resort to force before other methods of settlement by con ference, concilliation, or. if need be. arbitration have been tried. This la limitation. "The obligation Is that if any na tion will not observe this limita tion upon its national actions, if It breaks agreement which In the ba sis of the league, rejects ail peace ful methods of settlement end re sorts to force against other nations, they must one and all use their combined force against it. The eco nomic pressure that such league could us? would in Itself be very powerful, and the action of some of the smaller States composing the league could, perhaps, not go be yond th? economlo pressure, but those States that have power must be ready to use all force, economic, military or naval, they possess. "We are now in the fourth year of the war. Ths application of scientific knowledge and Inventions of science during the war has made It more terrible and destructive each year. The Germans have abro gated all previously accepted rules I of warfare. The use of poisonous I gas. firing from the sea upon open undefended towns, and the indis criminate bombing of big cities from the air were ell introduced Into the wer by Germany. "It wee long before the elite? adopted any of these practice* even ee reprisals, but the German? heve forced e ruttile?? unlimited applica tion of scientific discovery to the de struction of human Ufa, oombetant end noncomba tant.

C. Committee Chairman Renews I Rent Charge. ?-? ? The Senate has shown Its "teeth." That body, noted for Ite "dignity end deliberation," In e resolution offered by Senator Pomerene, excused Its con ferees on the anti-rent profiteering bill from further duty yesterday, and In doing ?o, hammered another nail In the coffin designed to receive that messore. It happened because Representative Ben Johnson spoke his mind to the Joint House and Senate conferees on the bill, and told them exactly what be thought of the situation with re gard to rent profiteering and the re sponsibility for such, aa It exists In the District of Colombia, Some regard the action es e "slop In the fece" for Ben Johnson, but in reality It only serve? to make Mr. Johnson fight ell the harder to have an adequate rent measure passed through Congres? before adjournment That the Senate was "riled" would i be to put It mildly.

Even so, Mr. Johnson was not the least worried yesterday by the action of the Senate. lie Is more than ever convinced. Judging from his attitude, that his charges and Insinuation? are substantially correct Mr. Johnson re fuses to be rebuked. He Is still firm in his attitude that the Pomerene antl proflteerlng rent bill Is designed for the landlord, and will ?tick to his guns. Ills attitude, with that of the Sen ate. leaves the rent situation about : the same as it was before the Intro- ! rtuctlon of the bill That the Senate Is ) .iust as well satisfied to keep on ? ? usine to meet Mr. Johnson la evi denced by the lack of excitement on the part of that body over the Ken ? l?'kian's charge?.
