McMORROUGB Two Sides to the Question Somewhere in the bible is written this threat, to-wit: "God will send the peo ple strong delusions that they may be lieve a lie, etc.'' As I see it, this means that reason will be perverted and that chaos and old night will reign again. This being true, does it not become us to "watch and be sober? .The first consider ation is that all law, divine or human, must, be obeyed. Divine law is perfect; human law is not. Must we obey an un just <>r oppressive law? Yes, lest those in authority be held in contempt, and it would naturally follow that all law would be so regarded and the weak become a prey to the strong. It is not niy purpose to write of laws under which we live, but that part of divine law usually called natural law, nnd will still further restrict myself to that part of it known as moral law, and it being of divine origin Is of higher order than the other two kinds referred to and which are written in bonks, but the moral law ft written in in the hearts and minds of munkind by the Great Creator and the golden rule directs its application. The state executes its laws through officers chosen for this purpose, | but as to the moral law each individual | is his or her own executive. Much of! the old Jewish law was founded upon re venge, and I thought we had traveled away from it. I find this writer is ca pable of making mistakes but he hopes he will not become an expert in that direction. Is there a penalty for the violation of the moral law? Yes; morse, and when this Is followed by re pentance reparation is possible. When conscience is deadened by repented viola tions of the moral law Its victim is ready , for any deviltry that suggests itself. Does this assertion need proof? If so, just recall the history of the central pow- J ers in the late war; think of Belgium and : Northern France! The marauders cannot J even plead "lex talionis" (the law of re- J taliation); no harm had been done them. ^ Now this law is based upon revenge which is an ignoble passion and reacts upon those who apply It. Ought the peace con ference to invoke this law that depends upon whether the friendship or enmity of our late enemies 13 wanted, also, whether we wish to be like them or wot? I Surely there are enough righteous people j in Sodom to save it from distruction. | Now, Mr. Blank, suppose an enemy had ■ you down and wholly in his power ohd , Instead of killing or robbing you, helped ] you on your feet and bade you Godspeed, would you want to despoil him? Solomon said, "answer not a fool according to his folly lest you be like him." In a crude way I have tried to sot forth tho moral side of the peace question. Now let us take a sordid view. If the central powers are emasculated to helplessness, how ace they to pay an idemnity, and Ivhat reason would there be for a league of nations, The incentive .would be gone. A common danger is necessary to keep intact the league and if this is wanting the door is opened to strife among its members. There are already weatherings that prosage a otorm. Reconstruction of the ruined nations is an appalling task and the help of our late too ia noeded. With each one "sulking in Lis tent" and dream ing of revenge their help would neither be hearty or efficient. President Wiloon's altruism is lofty, but I cm afraid the world is not ready for it. Democracy means government by tho people, and the president's ploa that the world be made safe for It should be hdld In abeyance until democracy is made safe for the world. re H. A. GILLIAM.
