Studies at the Washington Conference. NO. 3-THE TRAIL OF V338A1U45S Two Great Powers Are Sieut AM Absent. By IL G. WELLS as arnc ew the W:Zieru Worm Ciew e Te. ellwap ots Washington, the guide books say, was planed by Maj. Pierre Charles L'Enfant in imitation of Versailles. If so, it has broken away from his I intentions. I know Versailles pretty well, and I have gone about Wash ington looking vainly for anything more than the remotest resemblance. There is something European about Washington I admit, an Italianate largeness as though a Roman design has been given oxygen and limitless space. It is a capital in the expand ed Latin style. It has none of the vertical uplift of a real American city. But Versailles! Versailles was the home and em bodiment of the old French Grand Monarchy and of a Foreign Policy thatsought to dominate, Frenchify, and "Versaillise" the world. A visit to Versailles is part of one's world education, a visit to the rather faded, rather pretentious magnifi cence of its terraces, to that Hall of Mirrors, all plastered over with lit tle oblongs of looking-glass, which was once considered so wonderful, to the stuffy, secretive royal apart ments with their convenient back stairs, to the poor foolishness of the Queen's toy village, the Little Tria non. A century dnd a half ago the le of France, wasted and worn by ncessant wars of aggression, weary of a vernment that was an intolerable brden to them and a nuisance to all Europe, went to Ver sailles in a passion and dragged French Policy out of Versailles for a time. Unhappily It went back there. Symsbel ef Quarrel Between Two Countries. In 1371. when Germany struck down the tawdry imperialism of Napoleon III (who was also for pet ting up emperors in the New World). the Germans had the exceesive bad taste to proclaim a new German em pite in the Hall of Mirrors. IHe that Versailles became more than ever the symbol of the age-long, dreary, pitiful quarrel of the French and ermane for the inheritance of "the empire" that has gone on ever since the death of Charlemagne. There the glory of France had shone; there the glory of France had been eclipsed. I visited Versailles one autumnal day in 1912. and it was then a rather mouldy, disheartened, empy ,plct m esqu show placeer furbelows, wigui and red heels, and also by the stronger, lees pleasant flavor of that later Prussian triumph. It was surely the least propitious place in the whole world for the making of a world peace in 1919. It was inevitable that there the Rhine frontier should loom larger than all Asia and that the German people should be kept waiting outside to learn what vindictive punishment victorious France designed for them. The peace of Versailles was not a settlement of the world, it was the erownng ofithe Frnch evanche. below the horison of Versailles it was as inevitable that the Russian people, who had saved France from dramatIad a am C ntms 21 Fs Rer h Thv WORLD LEADERS HOPEFORPEACE THROUGH PARLEY War Inevitable if Conference Fails, British Jurist Says In Message.
