Success for Democratio Qet tlcment Depends on Publicity. ' (By David Ijiwrenee.)' Paris, Pec SI. (Copyright. 1911, N. V. Evening 1'ost.) In his nego tiations with the principal statesmen of Europe, President Wilson has adopted the policy of making It dear that h has an open mind on the p-actloal application of each of his fourteen principles, as a basis of peace. He baa purposely denied the , newspaper statement that he was . definitely committed to the plan of the American branch of the League to Enforce Peace in order to empha size that he did not come to Europe with a mind closed to discussion. As a matter of fact, all of the al lies huve something mora than a simple statement of the fourteen points to guide them, l.enause, prior to sending the final notes accepting Mr. Wilson's proposal In regnrrt to an armistice with rmnny, the of. DclsJ heads of Great Britain, Krance snd Ttaly wero given an opportunity to ask the meaning' of each article. A lengthy memorandum Interpreting the fourteen principles was trans mitted to them ly Col. House with J he approval of tha president All sre re agreed to, with the exception j of two points, so thnt It may be said 1 that If the allies had Intended to de- I Viata from the fourteen principles 1 every opwrtunIty was given to them before) they sent the final notes to Mr. Wilson, which led to the rml tlee. Gossip Everywhere. One can hear many Intrrextlng Mis f gossip here and read manv ex pressions of opinions hy influential I Individuals which Indicate a desire to i make peace along different lines rad- leally from the fourteen points, tint , BO official of any belligerent govern ment has expressed hlmnelf. Indeed ... the attitude of President Wilson and , the American delegation seems toas eume that the acceptance on the part of the belligerents of the principles " laid down In the correspondence was literal, and to view suggestions that ocr allies digress fundamentally therefrom as merely the work of trouble makers and propagandists who are trying to give the Impres r aloa that the great free governments ". associated with America would go ;' back on their pledged words. It bwrlns to be apparent that Mr. .' Wilson firmly believes that the peace . conference should first disnose of ... questions which alt nations have In . common, such as a league of nations ' and their attitude toward future ,, vara; and postponing until later the v effort to arrange territorial questions , and consideration of numerous daima. Nevertheless one encounters much discussion at the headquarters . ox every delegation or the mooted territorial questions. Admittedly the . claims heard nowaday .a r only the extreme ones with a pfbspect of re cession subsequently. Paris resembles closely the scenes - at an American political convention: ttiere Is none of the open booming or individual claims, but much earnest argument la going on underneath the J',', aarface la an eqort to canvass and marshal strength ultimately at the . . peaoa table on Individual proposl '.'. tions, . -The American delegation la just rttng organised. Much confusion natural In erecting a structure of - . such Importancs and housing the i llundreds of oAolala, attaches and clerks Creel Hae No Authority. George Creel, chairman of theeom- aalttee on publlo Information, haa - not nine to do with making new publlo nor is anybody; acting as an ,, intermediary, although members of Se peace mission and occaslonally e president himself jive Interviews tthe correspondents, enabling them ask on behalf of the American fceople any questions which theymny Wish to put and giving them tho lama freedom as In the United States, f . Owing to the fact that military . snaorahrp haa been in effect in Ku- lP0 for some time It may be dlffl . . talt. at first, to secure adherence all Llong- the line to this principle of ! ireeaom or communication, but ap ; barently It is the intention of the British and French governments to get subordinate officials to obey lit rally the prom I sea formally riven to President Wilson. American newspapers themselves can tell whether dispatchea are tam- pered with, and any evidence of fail ure to live up to the agreement will be welcomed by the American delc , ration In order that corrective proc- esses may Immediately be instituted. President Wilson recognizes that ' success for a democratic peace de pends upon keeping the peoples of the world, constantly Informed and wanta freedom of expression for all ,' currents of opinion, all shades of view and all kinds of criticism.
