The causes for this obscurity are many. Among the great move meats of civilization the Red Cross is com? paratively new. It is of foreign birth, consequently its literature is in for? eign languages and in many languages, while we are notably a one-language people. The subject with which it was born to deal?namely, human war? fare, was, until the Spanish-American war. experimentally unknown to our present generation, and the desire for and the certainty of a perpetual peace for the future had begotten an indiffer? ence, not to say repulsion, in the minds of the public, which turned M instinctively ? often impatiently ? away from all topics bearing upon the subject of war. _ ? I The history of the world is largely ! a history of its wars r.nrt through the 4.t>'H) years, until three and a half centuries ago. there is no official rec? ord of any movement to lessen the woes of those who fought them. At that date a medical service was at? tached to armies, ami was thought to ? >e sufficient for any emergency that could ever arise. Through all the ter i itde wars of Napoleon I. this service I was never changed, increased or ques tioned. But when the doors of Scutara opened for Florence Nightingale and her 40 nurses, the flood of light which followed them revealed serious de? tects. Still so slow is the match of improvement thai the war of I.om l?ardy in is59 showed no amendment. On June 24 of that same year the. ] armies of Na|a>ieon III.. equip|?ed with every facility then known to military j medical science, stood face to face with the foe in northern Italy. 3*0.001 combatants in a line five leagues in length, and fought 15 hours without I cessation or rest. The horrors of the ' Held, throurh the suffering of its wounded from want of care?scarcely one surgeon for "Jl men. blee.dng. i fainting and famishing?were wit? nessed by a humane Swiss gentletran. Henri Humant. who stayed his trav- | ? ling carriage in the vicinity of the batile and worked among the wound | ?-d The memories of the suffering he had witnessed, haunted him. until at I length he wrote and published them, and the "Souvenir de Solferlno" tn a ! few months had fa-en transUnsri into . the leading languages of the world, and lay on the tables and on the hearts of the Ik-si of Kuro;?e. The seed hart been well sown, and ; in lN6:t It took root in a conference at I liencva.

Dm sanit?r \ commission was struggling intii active lif< and Ktrope kuew nothing ol it The Red Cross had not even a name. Please let this answer the mistaken, misleading and constantly recurring question of the "Red Cross Iu our civil war." There was none. That conference of 1m'." accotn-1 plished prodigies of successful labor within a year. It drew into its com iwct the concurrence of two-thirds of the imimnani countries <>f Kuro|>*\,' which proceeded to establish aid or central societies for relief in war. as. | for Instance, Austria,- Spain. France Great Britain, the Netherlands. I'rus sia. six German states. Sweden. Swit \ zerland, Italy. Portugal and Denmark. Although thorough advocates, these societies were merely single-handed ami national, each read} to act wiib all humanity and generosity lo friend and loe; hut there was no bond be? tween them: internationally they had no existence. The established laws of war held its impenetrable mantle over them and internationally there was no link between these eivil aid societies and the military of even their own countries. The surgeons whom they would send could still be captured, their wounded could be lefl on the Held to suffer and die. the material could become the sixiil of the con* queror, hospitals could he robbed and their inmates either left destitute or dragged off lo prison, according to the caprice of the conqueror. International law sanctioned these things. It was clearly, therefore, interna? tional law that must be remedied in this respect. This conference of lhC't bravely called for another to be held in 1864. w hich should take on the char? acter of a convention, consisting ex? clusively of delegates from the crowned beads and rulers of the world ?the makers of war?armed with treaty powers, regarding the conduct of armies in the field and the treat? ment of sick and wounded soldiers. This convention was held at Geneva in August. I Mil. A compound international treaty was entered into, known as the treaty of Geneva, for rhe aid of the sick and wounded of armies. The first clause of this remarkable document of ten articles strikes the keynote of ail that was sought, by declaring neutral all' l?ersons disabled on a Held, all persons properly authorized to care for them, as surgeons, chaplains, attendants, all materials sent or designed for the use of the wounded in hospitals and the hospitals themselves Woun?ed prisoners were to l>e given up if de? sired: the sick and wounded were lo be taken case of regardless of ra? tionality, friend and foe receiving the same care from all belligerents A sign was created by which all |<ersons engaged in the relief of the wounded of either army might be known. All material, as food, clothing and vehi? cles, having this sign, should be sacred from capture. One flag bearing this sign was instituted for ?!l military hospitals and all hospitals filing that flag should !>?- held sacred from at? tack. To return to the national societies Strenethcned by the convention of 1S64. and the protection of the treaty, no time was lost by them In 1866 Austria. Italy and Germany afforded natportaaJty for trial. The hard fb-ld of Sadowa testified as to their need Italy and Germany were in the treaty: Austria was not. That made no difference in the treatment of Austria's wounded. Par dnhitz f?-d and dressed the wounds of ?,ie to ? '?? a day for two months, re? gardless of friend or foe.

The Turkish officials, intelli? gent ami educated, understood tiie origin of lbe Red Cross aud respected if. but prudently feared to place a cross in the sight ot their ignorant, fanatical soldiery, ami the Red ? res cent was substituted, winch remains until today. Iu 1877 Russia tame down ami crossed the Danube Plev? na tells its terrible tale. The Servian Red Cross, young and |MH>r, estab? lished its wonderful hospital at Hcl grade ami Kouinania nursed 1.1)42 wounded Turks. Fifteen million dol hits in Red Cross relief was Spenl by Russia alone. The Ja|ianese arc one of the aiost advanced Red Cross nations, tie- em lieror being the active head of the een tral society. Their work lor the relief of suffering during the late war with Russia aroused the wonder and ad? miration of the world. Of civil w.-us then- has been no end. Italy had its Carihaldiun and papal war. Spam had its Carllsl war. Russia led its armies in the region of Persia and its Red Cross sent 117 per? sons alle. them, who followed the ad vunced guard, six being wounded and 12 killed The Dutch established its Red Cross in the Malay war in 1878. Rolivia and Peru entered the treaty during their civ il wars of 1879 to 1881 lu I he early Transvaal war tbo Boers, without being in the treaty, lived up to its highest precepts. Civil wars ate usually considered the most cruel and yet. singularly, the Carlist war in Spain was sal if* to have I lieen exempt from cruelties-: doctors and nurses were respected, prisoners were well treated and even the wound ; ed insurgents were set at liberty at Pampeluna. Spain lias always regard? ed its Red Cross ami eveu in the lielght of the Spanish-American war sent its official testimonial of regard to the president of the Red Cross of America. It will be recalled that although of? ficially invited to every conference the I'nited Stales was too sadly occupied [ to give attention to anything on: ;ide itself, until the close of our civil war. Then It was too worn, tired and glad [ of the end of war to ever want to hear of it again. Tints it happened that when Dr. Henry W. Bellows, the great apostle of war relief, and president of our sanitary commission, having come in contact with the Red Cross at the Paris exposition in 18ii8, and per? ceiving Its great utility, undertook to interest the American people and in? duce the government to unite with the treaty and actually formed a society, failed both with government and peo? ple, was compelled to abandon bis so j eiety and relinquish his efforts. For ! eign nations regretted this and con J tinned their efforts to interest Amer? ica. At length, in 1ST", a second effort was made, during the administration of President Hayes, and continued suc? cessively through'a term of five rears. In 1882, during the administration of President Arthur, following out the expressed desires of his lamented predecssor, Garfleld, and the advices of bis cabinet, the treaty was adopted by our government. We had no wars, no battlefields to attract their sympathy and help, but we had great disasters constantly oc? curring, as pitiable oftentimes as a battle, and then it was our custom to cali upon the government to give re? lief through appropriations from the treasury. Mere was a legitimate op? tion unity to apply the first sreat prin? ciples of the Red Cross, namely, "peo? ple's help for national need " To tins opportunity'the perplexed committee turned aad on presenting the treaty for acceptance it prayed the ratifying liowers at Bern to accept the United States, with the privilege of relieving in great national calamities, other than war. confining its operations to disasters beyond local relief and re? quiring governmental aid. The com? mittee frankly gave its reasons, admit? ting that it was an innovation. Still, the request was kindly considered and gi anted Thus in 1882 America stood alone amonu the Red Cross treaty na? tions with the official privilege of ren? dering aid in great calamities In eivil life. America has a double responsibility. Its Reil Cross is twofold -civil and military; both alike legitimate, taith of the banie origin, imposing the same duties A few years ago the war vic? tims of Manila were pouring into San Francisco in thousands, wounded sick, poor and friendless The Red Cross of California received every one. nursed, fed and helped them on. This was Red Cross war relief. At the same lime the elements had devastated a great seaNiard ritr. literally sweeping it into the ocean drowned lo.nne of its l<eop|e and left 2f>.*0O homeless, ruined and desolate The Red Cross entered there am! by reqnent look charge of its relief, working for months among the dislrc??wd iktNaa. distributing the charities of the people, braving an at nosphere nearly fatal to health and life, and onlv left when ?he aurvivors could help themselves.
