Success stifis every expedient in warfare, ad yeu cannot prevent that being so A nation, hoping to win and after make friends with Its enemy or i tous for the approval of some t rful neutral may conceivably re fm ee ts, but that is a volun ryand strategic restraint. The remains that war is an ultimate illimitable thing; war that can centrolled is a war that could have stopped or prevented. If our gPce can really bar the use of poison gas it can bar the use of any kind gf weapon. It is indeed easier to emfore peace altogether ithan any lesser limitation of war. But it is argued that this much may be true, nevertheless, that if the nations of the world will agree beforehand not to prepare for par tlcular sorts of war or If they will agree to reduce their military and usval equipment to a minimum this will operate powerfully in prevent i contraventions and In a phase of popular excitement arresting the rush toward war. The only objec tion to this admirable proposal is that no power which has desires or rights that can only be satisfied or ended, so far as it knows, by war will ever enter into such a disarma ment agreement in good faith. Of course countries contemplat lag war and having no serious in tion of disarming effectually will enter quite readily into con ' ferences upon disarmament, but they will do so partly because of $he excellent propaganda value of such a participation and mainly because of the chance it gives them CONOY Pure Spring Water --is fresh and delicious.

That sort of ling was going on between Britain and Germany at The Hague at intervals before the great war. Neither party be lieved in the peaceful intentions of the other nor regarded thee ne gotiations as anything but strategic moves. And as thlngs were in Europe it was diffict to regard them in any other way. No, the limitation of armaments quite as much as a mitigation of warfare is i until war has been made ip bla, and then the complete extinction of armaments follows without discussion: and war can only be made impossible when the powers of the world have done what the thirteen original States of the American Union found they had to do after their independence was won, and that is set up a com mon law and rule over themselves. Such a project is a montrously dificult one, no doubt, and it !lies in the face of a great masses of patrotic cant and of nat prej udices and natural spion, but it is a thing that can be done. It is the only thing that can be done to avert the destruction of civiliza tion through war and war prepara tion. Merging of Sovereignty Is Held to Be Essential. Disarmament and the limitation of warfare without such a merging of sovereignty look, at the first glance, easier and more modest proposals, but they suffer from the fatal defect of absolute imprac ticability. They are things that can not be made working realities. A world that could effectually disarm would be a world already at one, and disarmament would be of no importance whatever. Given stable international relations, the world would put aside its armaments as naturally as a man takes off his coat in winter on entering a warm house. And as a previous article has pointed out, wars. prepemtioum foi war, and the threat of war e nly the more striking aspect of human disunion at the present time. The smashing up of the world's currency system and the progressive paralysis of industry that follows on that is a much more immediate disaster. Thai is rushing upon us. This war tall between Japan and American may end as abruptly as the snarling of two dogs overtaken by a flood. There may not be another great war after all, because both in Japan and Amer ica social disruption may come first.

For if there are any things in life worse than pain, fear, and destruction, they are boredom, pet tiness, and Inanity, and such would be the quality of such a world. However much the diplomatists at Washington may seek to ignore the fact, may fence their discus sion within narrowly phrased agen da, and rule this, that, and the other vital aspect outside the scope of the conference, the fact remains that there is no way out, no way of escape for mankind from the monstrous miseries and far more monstrous dangers of the present time except an organized interna tional co-operation, based upon a frank and bold resolve to turn men's minds from ancient jeal ousies and animosities, to the com Distributors of H~h.rade U.
