Is there any doctrine of internationalism older than the right-to-exist .of small states? Does not Germany .recognize the principle? Does not history contain fr outrageous as the invasion of Belgium? Remains, then, only one rock on which the negotiations may be wrecked "repara tion." Now, reparation means (1) atone ment, (2) restitutionand (3) indemnity. Restitution of territory, Germany promised stepped on the Belgian banana peel.

Though the idea of this ball was per sonatty disagreeable to him, Mr. Catts re- alized that to many people jt was an event of gre at interest, and he was simply demo icratic enough to bow to the. will of the 'majority. He refused, however, to allow I spiked' punch on the premises, and, consid- ering the popularizing of prohibition, it i might e added that here, too, he was es ; sentially democratic.
