END IS NEAR
Peace Will Come, He As
serts, on Basis of Wil
' Auburn. N. T., Oct. 10?Secretary
of State Lansing, in an address bere
tonight, declared this period of the
war to be the "beginning of the
end." He spoke at a dinner in cele
bration of the one hundredth anni
versary of Auburn Theological Sem
"For four long years the armies
of the allies have heroically with
stood the legions of the 'Beast.' "
he declared. "These war-worn vet
erana, whose unfaltering valor
knows no equal, are today, with
the splendid men of this Republic
by their side, sweeping back the in- !
vaders broken in spirit, sullen and
hopeless. It is the beginning of the
end. The hour of triumph is draw
ing near. The day of the war-lords ^
Is almost over."
Tke "i -?mint Era.*?
The subject of tbe Secretary's ad- !
dress was, "The Spirit of the Com
ing Era"?the ear after the war.
Peace will come, the Secretary said,
on the basis of the President's terms,
therefore all should stand rigidly in
support of the principle? on which
these bases are founded.
When peace comes, he added. It will
be g Just peace which will satisfy the
just, but not the unjust wishes of all
peoples. But. he declared: "When
the time comes to balance the account
?and it scema to be drawing near as
tbe vassals of Germany seek refuge
from the day of wrath?the authors of
the frightful wrongs committed
againat mankind should not be for
gotten." A lasting peace. Mr. Uns
ing said, could not be one written in
terms of anger. It will not come,
though, he made plain, "while the
'beast* is still at large.**
Brotherhood of Maa.
MTou, who are present tonight,"
continued the Secretary, "believing in
the brotherhood of man. know, as I
know, that the American people ought
not. after the war is won, to cherish a
pi?H?a? hate for all those who have
served the military dictators of Cen
tn?! Kurope. We should discriminate
between the ignorant and the intelli
gent, between the responsible and Ir
responsible, between the master and
the serf. It seems to me that it is the
? lain duty of all tho3e who can in- ,
tiuence public opinion in this country '
to so guide American thought, that j
passion will not prevent the putting
into operation of a wise plan for the]
readjustment of the world when
peace ts restored.
"There is also another Influence
which Christian men and women must
combat if this new era is to be an era
of nobler life and loftier ideals than
that which has ended in the grim
fr? enes of death anrf suffering we have
witnessed. For years we. as a peo
ple, have fallen more and more under
the influence of materialism. Physical
pleasure and ease became the objects
of chief desire.
I h a ormai Development.
"The abnormal development of ma
terialistic ideas in the German mind
was a potent force: possibly the
potent force in arousing the lust
for dominion, which was the under
lying cause of this conflict of the
nations. It is the verdict of his
tory th-at a. cold cAlculatttaa; mate
rialism sows in the life of a people
the seeds of degeneracy rather than
the seeds of progress. Materialism
as the basic idea of the new order
of things will revive those very Im
pulses to do evil, which the world
"The years to come must be years
of fraternity and common purpose. ?
1'nreasoning class hatreds and classi
tyrannies must come to an end.
"Society must be organized on |
principles of justice and liberty.
The world must be ruled by the j
dominant will to do that which is j
right. I see no other complete so
lution to the great problems which ?
will soon engross the thought of1
mankind, no other means of de- I
st roving forever that soulless ma- I
terialism which plunged the nations !
into these years of agony."

AS C. P. R. PRESIDENT
Remains Chairman of Boa/d; Is
Succeeded by E. W. Beatty.
Montreal. Oct. 10? Lord Shaughneauv
'??mains chairman of th? Canadian
Pacific Railway Company, but after
twenty years of office retired from the
presidency at a meeting of the direc
tors held here today. While relieved
>f executive duty, he will continue to
serve with his counsel and experience.
E. W. Beatty was elected president.
This change Is due to Lord .ShauRh
nesey's conviction that in view of the
extensive program planed by the
< "anadian PaclBc for the period of re
??onstructlon after the war the best
interests of the company would be
served If a younger man were to as
sume the active direction of ao large
and ?-omplete a system. Although
several years older thaa either of his
predecessors were at the time when
they retired from the presidency, he
decided when tlie war broke out to
carry on until the financial horizon
should lichten. Now, however, he feels
less hesitation in handing over the
executive responsibility to a succes
sor and peculiarly to one who has
shown .notable administration ability
and who enjoys to a marked degree
the confidence not only of the politi
cai and business leaders of Canada.
but also of the employes of the Cana
dian Pacific Railway itself.
E. W. Beatty, the new president, has
been vice president and general coun
sel, also director of the Canadian Pa
cific Railway for several years.
Sir George Bury, on account of ill
health, is retiring from the position
of vice president, and Mr. Grant Hall,
who has been vice president in charge
of Western lines, has been appointed
ln his place.
