INSISTS ON WAR NOT BEING IN VAIN Wilson Most Uncompromising Person in World on Sub ject of Just Peace. , CRITICISM IS INEVITABLE From Element Which Fears Public ' Opinion Much Progress Made. By David Lawrence.) (Copyright, 1918, by New York Even ing Post Company.) (By Telegraph to The Chattanooga News.) Washington, March. 5. President Wilson isn't interested in patch work peace speeches such as James M, Beck and Charles E. Hughes have made lately, sounding note of alarm against what they term Presi dent Wilson's implications'' of "pre matura peace," calculated by friends of tha president here to do no more harm than an alleged vagueness of phrase with which Mr. Wilson has misrepresented by our own people and tha enemy as a sign of an eagerness and to quit will fcave no effect. The president knows in his heart thn. no harm can come' from preaching jus tice, and he probably will continue to do so while he is the virtual spokes man of a cause that has justice for its slogan. Peace some day is coming. Preliminaries -to peace must take months. Already much ground has been cleared in the last three years. The independent socialists in Germany didn't dare raise the! voice three years ago when England was pro nouncing war aims which meant the dismemberment of Germany, Austria and Turkey. It was easy for the militarist Turkey to rally all classes on the ground that Germany was fighting a defensive war, a struggle for existance. Little by little, the principle originally proclaimed by Mr. Asquith and Viscount Grey, md epito mized by Air. Wilson, "to make the world safe for democracy," came to be the central aim of the all'"t cause. Little by little, the socialists 1 Ger many are beginning to understand that there is somethinar In the en emy's cry for democracy. Mr. Wilson is Insistent that the prese it war shall not be in vain. Those who think he would accept peace at any price sim ply do not know the man. Before the final settlement s made there li go ing to be much friction, much criti cism, much dissen 'on, but the out cry will come from those who think Mr. Wilson Is too anxious to make peace, not from those who know of the president's Insistence on an un selfish and equitable peace.

Russia and ths central powera in tha aeen fit to discuss the terms on which I pesce treaty at Brest-Litovtk, agreed PROHIBITION AT ONCE IS DEMAND Immediate Enactment as War Measure Means Saving of Billions, Says Chairman. the war had to be settled. The presi dent will not make peace any aooner than the American public opinion will want it made. He " will not forget the sacrifices that have been made any more than he will ignore the causes of this war, which must forever be removed, that there may he no recurrence of the catastrophe. But it was inevitable that criticism should come; that both Mr. Beck and Mr. Hughes should voice an apprehension which , took form when Mr. Wilson's last address was made. There has always been an element in this country which fears the people and -public opinion so much that merely to discuss peace is regarded by them as a certain means of bringing about only the German kind of peace. Insofar as those elements do not trust American people to discriminate between the right and wrong kind of peace, they are misunderstanding and fearing that President Wilson will be so anxious to make pence that he will make any kind of peace he can get, but those men don't know Wood row Wilson. They Doubt His Word. They doubt his word. They never accepted him on domestic politics. They intermittently approve his for eign policy but always, with reserva tion, a doubt of Mr. Wilson's sincer ity as those features are read from ad ministration quarters, they arc con strued as nothing more than the questioning of the good faith of President Wilson and in preaching a lack of faith in Mr. Wilson, at a time when he is dealing with foreign ques that the war between them should be at an end, Berlin dispatches' say. The third clause of the treaty provided that the regions west of a line agreed upon and which is to be delinssted Ister, formerly belonging to Russia, shall have no further obligation to ward Russia, and Germany and Aus tria will determine their fate in agree ment with their population. Article 4 provides for the evacuation of the Anatolian provinoes and the surren der of Erivan, Kara and Batoum to Turkey. The treaty continues: "Article 6 Russia will, without de lay, carry out the complete demobil ization of her army, including the forces newly formed by the present government. Russia will further trans fer her warships to Russian harbors and leave them there until a general peace, or immediately disarm." Barred Zone Continues. Warships of states continuing In a state of war with the quadruple al liance will be treated ns Russian war ships insofiir as they are within Rus sian control. The barred zone in the Arctic con tinues in force until the conclusion of peace. An Immediate beginning will be made of the removal of the mines in the Rnltic, and Insofar as Russian power extends, in the Hlack sea. Com mercial shipping is free in these wa ters and will b resumed immediately. A mixed commission will be appointed to fix further regulntion, especially for the announcement of routes for merchant ships. Shipping routes sre to be kept permanently from llonting mines. "Article 6 Russia undertakes Im mediately to conclude peace with the Ukraine peoples republic and to rec ognize the peace treaty between this Chicago, March 6. A demand for immediate nationwide prohibition as a war measure was voiced 'by Virgil Q. Hinshaw, chairman of the prohibition national committee, in an address opening the thirteenth national con vention of that party in Chicago to day. More than 1,000 delegates from all parts of the United States were in attendance. In part Mr. Hinshaw saidi "If all the prohibition forces of this country will pull together, we can so cure war prohibition within ninety days. That is one of our Jobs, but it is not the Job pi the prohibition party to do it all by itself. The time has arrived when we shall not only beseech the 150,000 church organiza tlons of this country to line up all their members, but in addition we. should reach out after every labor union, manufacturers' organization"! and farmers organization in America. Also Want it Permanently. "We want prohibition for the pe riod of the war, but we also want It permanently. We want it in the na tional legislation. Already seven states have ratified the prohibition amendment, Mississippi, Montana, Kentucky, South t'arolinn. North Pa- kota, Maryland two wet and Ave dry. We will take it for granted that all dry states will ratify. In that event we must win seven more wet stales. The wet states which we believe we can win, In fact are almost certain of winning, are Nevada, Wyoming, Flor ida, Ohio. Minnesota. Missouri and Texas. Thut makes seven. There are others we should win, namely, Cali fornia. Wisconsin, Ielnwnre, New Jer sey and Vermont: that makes five more. Kven New York. Massachusetts, Connecticut and Louisiana are by no means hopeless. Means Immense Waste. "Hut I repeat once more, the lamie Is not can we secure ratification of the prohibition constitutions! amend ment. The issue Is, will we do It with in twelve months or will we allow the matter to be deferred for three or Ave or seven years. .The difference be tween national prohibition in twelve months and In three years means a waste of at least $12,000,000,000.
