Two unprecedented incidents have been recorded in. the cable dispatches since President Wilson outlined before the United States Senate the kind of peace, that "the peoples of America could join in guaranteeing." On the day following his speech a great conference of the British Labor Party in England rose to its Jeet and applauded for five minutes at the casual mention of President Wilson's name and then enthusiastically voted its unqualified support to the British Government in carrying the war to a victorious conclusion! The other incident was the sending to President Wilson from the Allies', renches in France of a number of circular letters each signed by three hundred soldiers, thanking him' for his gen erous intervention, but asking nim to "dream no longer of the chimera of peace until victory is gained." .
