ABOUT U.S.TERMS Wants to Know What Guarantees We Will Demand. \i - MAY DIRECTLY ASK THE POPE Washington Will Be Judge of Condi tions of Peace—May Not Insist on Dethronement of Kaiser —Will In* sist He Be Deprived of Power to Declare War. WASHINGTON, D. C.—That Presi dent Wilson very shortly will be ask ed just what guarantees the United States —and probably the entente al lies —will demand from Germany as a condition of a peace conference, be came certain. High diplomatic officials intimated that this action may be ex pected from the Vatican. It was possible, also, it was pointed out, that the German reply to the Pope’s peace note would take Ihe statements made by the President in his recent reply into consideration and directly address the Vatican to learn just what President Wilson had in mind when he said that the Ger man people themselves must guaran tee a lasting peace. State uepartment officials admitted that they will not be surprised should this develop. In this connection a high official of the department was asked directly v/liether the United States had already set up a standard for the guarantees it would ask. U. S. Will Be Judge. The reply was significant: “The United States will be the judge of all guarantees that may be asked,” was the reply. “Will such a guarantee mean that the United States will insist on the overthrow of the Hohenzollern dy nasty?” they was asked. “We have not said so. The Presi dent’s note does not make any such demand,” answered the official, who then refused to permit any further questioning along this line. The reply, however, was considered highly significant and has generally been interpreted to mean that if the German constitution is amended to take away from the kaiser and his im mediate following the right to declare war and decide the army program, the United States will not insist that a German republic be formed. Diplomats See Lansing. In this very connection a number of important conferences were held by Secretary Lansing. Leading en tente diplomats, despite the fact that this was not diplomatic day, called at the state department and were re ceived by the secretary. It is understood that the confiden tial advices received by Mr. Lansing from this country’s agents in neutral countries adjoining Germany formed the subject of most of the confer ences. The belief is growing here that the President’s note has so stirred the. German radicals that it will bring about anew condition which, if prop erly developed, will result in a peace that will satisfy the United States.

In the American Magazine Thomas E. Wilson, the Chicago packer, says: “] often ask a man why he Is doing a thing a certain way. If he tells me that he does it that way because it has always been done just like that I am inclined to be somewhat dubious about his ability. Not infrequently the fact tbflt custom has been in force for thirty years is sufficient proof that it is wrong. We should be constantly on the lookout for better ways of doing things. Any business not showing constant advance ment usually deteriorates. Individual positions are no exceptions. “One of the great foes to a good or ganization is the practice of promoting by seniority alone. John Smith is moved into a vacancy because he has been in the department longer than some other fellow. This plan permits an inferior man to block the way of a good man. There should be no rules about promo tion which can in any way hamper the selection of the best man for a place. In fact, I do not like to have too many rules about anything. Rules tend to make people follow custom without knowing why and without using much Initiative.'" (First Publication Aug. 31, 1917). Notice to Creditors.
