TCEW YORK. July 28. Morris Hill
Quit, Socialist leader and propapan
dlst, describing the socialist view of
the prospect of a European war, de
- clared he was convinced that, even
if the socialist party did not prevent
the war, at least it would play a pow
erful influence in stopping- it. once
it was under way
"In Copenhagen, in 1910, general op
position to war on general grounds
wag strongly brought out," he said.
"It was decided that if two or more
nations should propose war the so
cialist representatives in the p'arlU
Tnents should do all in their power to
prevent It. If war was declared It
was the duty of the socialists to take
practical "Steps to put an end to the
'combat. The measures to "be taken
were left to the discretion of the so
cialists in the countries affected.
"While these measures were not
definitely laid down, it was generally
agreed that general strikes would be

of strikes lately, and the situation
In St. Petersburg is too well known to
comment on. France, Austria, and

have developed a splendid antl-miH-tarr
"The case of Russia is a special one.
Th last war brought about a revolu

condition now. The spirit of revolt
among the workers is raising its h-i&d,
and if KUssIa takes sides or partici

would mean just what it meant in the
Japanese war. The army would be dis

would suffer defeat. The socialist party

it was ten years ago.
Internal Conditions a Factor
"Similar apprehensions may be en

the doubtful outcome of the struggle,
but because .of their internal condi

Is a strong peasant movement there.'
There will be a meeting of the Inter
national Socialist and Legal Congress
In VJenna August 23, unless by that
time the war rumors have not abated.
Mr, Hillquit, who will be a delegatl. as

for stopping, if not actually preventing,

he said. "There is no socialist party In

ready they have called huge anti-war
meetings in the continental capitals."
