THE OLD AND THE NEW
"It is very interesting to me to observe how from every
quarter, from every sort of inintl, from every concert of counsel,
there comes the suggestion that there must now be, not a balance
of power, not one powerfvil group of nations set up against another,
but a single, overwhelming, powerful group of nations who shall
be the trustee of the peace of the world."
In this sentence, spoken by President Wilson in London the other
day during the course of an address in which he referred hopefully to
agreement between the United St. tes and England on the policies to be
determined at the coming peace conference, we see the distinction be
tween teh old order of things in the world which crashed to pieces in the
great war recently ended, and the new order which is to be established.
"Back of us," he declared, in referring to the leaders of the nations
which shall establish the new order, "is that imperative yearning of the
world to have all disturbing questions quieted, to have all threats against
peace silenced, to have just men everywhere come together for a common
object." No truer statement was ever made —the war will be won or lost,
no matter if a military victory has already been conceded, if the peace
conference fails in such an achievement.
This is "the final enterprise of humanity," the "incomparable great
object" which induced him to "turn away even from the imperative tasks
at home to lend such counsel and aid as I could," President Wilson con
cluded. And in his words, his championship of these aims, the people of
the world see the fruition of their hopes, and they back him up solidly.
England and France and Italy as well as our own country, may block its
development or force a compromise; but it will not be because the people
of the world do not want it.
A membership of seven thousand or more in the American Red Cross
in this country, as the result of a campaign conducted a month and a half
after the conclusion of hostilities, when enthusiasm has ebbed somewhat —*
that is the record of which every resident of Thurston county may be
proud. By enrolling ourselves on the lists of this great organization of
humanity and mercy at the time when the need of our own boys over there
is lessening and the call for service among the ruined peoples of the
world is paramount—when it is not our own but the other fellow who
needs our help—we have shown ourselves responsive to the world's greater
call. We have demonstrated most strikingly that what we sought in
this war and what we still seek is the development of the world's affairs
upon the basis of true justice, true humanity.
THE RECONSTRUCTION CONGRESS
Of supreme importance to the state and every resident of it, to see
that it is launched in the right channels, is the reconstruction congress
that is to be held in Tacoma next week. We may very easily get off on
the wrong tangent, not intentionally, perhaps, or designedly; or we may
wake up a few days or weeks later and find out some group of men has
"hung something" on us. We need, therefore, to be eternally awake ano
also sincerely and closely interested in what is done.
For our part we have not the remotest idea that it is the design of
any one or group of persons to "slip something over" at that congress.
On the other hand we have been particularly gratified to note the breadth
and vision and real earnestness and desire to be of service during a critical
stage In the state'B history, that has been displayed by the men who are
leading that movement and the other endeavors to handle the issues of
the after-the-war period. We believe they are sincerely striving for a pro
gram that will be of benefit to all.
Our only thought is that all of us should co-operate with them in
attending to that end, and should be ever watchful in its interests.
It is only a short time now until the biennial session of the state legis
lature convenes. Chief among the questions it will have before it will be
the reconstruction problems, the general policy the state shall pursue as
well as the details of it. One of these and one that probably will reach
high prominence as well as importance, is the state road policy for the
next few years. There are individuals and influences at work now seeking
to harmonize the different proposals to the end that a definite, satisfactory
plan may be presented. Let us hope, even though we do so somewhat
forlornly, that they succeed.
Official announcement was made by the officer in charge, in a talk
to the Illinois draft boards this week, that the government proposes to
keep on searching out the draft evaders and slackers until each is located
and punished. No other course would be right or fair or just, not from the
standpoint of law enforcement only, but chiefly from the standpoint 01
the two million men who were "over there," the two million who were
under arms herew and the millions more who were ready to answer their
country's call when needed.
It is greatly to the shame of Thurston county, in the face of the won
derful generosity of the most of its citizens in all the war work "drives"
and Liberty Loan campaigns, and the great unselfishness of its women in
their Red Crosß work —it is greatly to the shame of the county that it has
to stand the accusation of having one or two such reprobates on its rolls.
WORK FOR A LEAGUE OF NATIONS
The New York World directs attention the fact that for many weeks
representatives of the United States and the Allies have been engaged in
forming a league of nations. They have not called it a league of nations
and little attention has been paid to it, but they are working out the details
of the most gigantic International associaion that has ever been under
This new league of nations is seeking to control food, to control raw
materials and to control shipping, not in the selfish interest of any particu
lar country or any small group of countries but in the general Interest of
everyone. The underlying principle is that food must be equitably distrib
uted, to the end that nobody starves, and no nation be permitted to go into
the open market and bid up the price to the general disadvantage of every
body else. The procedure is to be applied to raw materials, and ship
ping is to be so apportioned that a condition of economic stability can
be established at a time when economic stability is essential to the very
life of free government.
It Is reported from Paris that as a result of these discussions the
final decision may be left to the Peace Conference in relation to such a league
of nations as the president has in mind, and that it is possible that the
foundations of the league may be laid in the co-operative arrangements that
are now dictated by economic necessity.
This might easily come about, just as the next practical step In the
work of a league of nations may be found in the need for a responsible
organization to appoint administrators for many of the territorial by
products of the war.
