MADE BY SCOTT & BOWNE MAKERS OF SCOTT'S EMULSION WILSON INVADES ~ HOUSE OF FOES (CARRIES HIS BATTLE FOR LEAGUE OF NATION3 INTO I HOME OP HI8 ENEMIES. GIVES COST OF GREAT WAR Informs Them of Lives snd Treasure Poured Out to Save Civilization. (By ML Clemens News Bureau) Aboard President Wilson’s Special train—Carrying bis war against tboss who oppose the adoption by the Uni* ted States of the peace treaty and the covenant of the League of Nations in to their households. President Wilson last week invaded California, And there, where the question on which league oppouents have ham mered the hardest, that of Shan Tung— is of most Interest, the president found the same enthusiasm among the peo ple for peace and for insurance against future wars. The people want the long controversy ended. They want this country to be able to again Lurn its undivided attention to social, economio and industrial developmenL Their leaders may not feel this way, but Judging from the expressions which met the president on every side. The leaders have overstepped the limits of the peoples patience in their stubborn determination to force a change in the great document Must Take This League. "We must take this League of Na tions,” said the president, “for there is no way in which, another can be obtained without compelling recon sideration by the powers. And It would sit very ill upoa-my stomach to take it back to Germany for considera tion.” “All over the world people are look ing to us with confidence our rivals along with the weaker nations. I pray God that the gentlemen who are de laying this thing may presently see it in a different light” Germany, the president declared, Is taking new courage from our delay in ratifying the treaty and her news papers and public men were again be coming arrogantly out-spoken. Deeply impressive were the figures of the cost of the late war, in lives and dollars. It was the first time that the official statistics have been made publio and the tremendous totals shocked the president's audiences. 8hows Cost of World War. “The war,” said President Wilson, cost Great Britain and and her Do mains $38,000,000,000; France $26,000,. 000,000; the United States $22,000, 000,000; Russia $18,000,000,000; Italy $13,000,000,000 and a total, including the expenditures of Japan, Belgium and other small countries, of $123,000, 000,000. "It cost the Central Powers as fol lows: Germany $39,000,000,000; Aus tria-Hungary, $21,000,000,000; Turkey and Bulgaria $3,000,000,000. “The United States,” the president said, “spent one million dollars an hour night and day for two years in its struggle to save civilization. All this, however, fades into Insigni ficance when the deaths by battle are considered, declared the president. Russia gave 1, 700.000 men; Germany 1,600,000; France 1,380,000; Great Britain 900, 000; Italy 364,000; the United States 60,300. In all, almost 7,600,000 men perished in the great struggle, or 1.500.000 more men than died in all of the wars of the previous 100 years. should Remember Recent Horrors. “These^ are terrible facts, and we ought never to forget them. We went Into this war to do a thing that was fundamental for the world and what I have come out on this journey for Is to determine whether the country has forgotten or not I have found out The country has not forgotten and it will never permit any who stands in the way of the fulfillment of our great pledges, ever to forget the sor rowful day he made the attempt” Arbitration and discussion, the pres ident pointed out, must replace force of arms in the settlement of world controversies. Constantly lie dwells upon the tact that all the nations In the League agree to do one of two things, first to submit their differences to arbitration, In which case they agree to abide by the decision ren dered, or, if unwilling to arbitrate, to have their case discussed by the Coun cil of the League, in which case six months Is granted for discussion. Three months must elapse following the result of this . t step in arbitra tion before the nation concerned can declare war. Holds Out Hope For Ireland. The president took advantage of questions propounded by the San Fran cisco Labor Council to give the Infer ence that he believes Ireland can bring her case before the League of Nations for settlement when the League Is actually in existence,. Shan Tung, he declared, will be re turned to China. Japan, he said, had given her solemn pledge to that effect And with the League of Nations In force, said the president, we can, If occasion arises, stand forth and say. “This shall be done."

Much depends upon the efforts made, In all things as to quality and grade; Leaving off things that should not he done, Looking for things that are rightful ly won; All things have a foundation or basic principle, Revealing the facts pure and simple, During life’s journey we must be sane and sensible. Assiduous thoughts when not flatly denied, Leave not a doubt that we’ve served Him in whom we confide; Each day we live, let’s to God, our purest thoughts give, Xencdoghy is next to Godliness, for which we shou’d ever live, And do the things we are commanded to do for Him; No doubt faith will aid us to comply with all of them; During our stay here on the earth for our lot, Each day on this lonely, earthly plot; Regretting not that we are privileged to receive things He taught. Believing in God, and His glorious works, Union in effort to do His biddings, not a duty shirk; Renewed effort, each day we live, en titles us to a place of rest, Never doubt this when we fi'l the re quired duties He possessed; Sweet spirit will then place us in tjie city of the blest. —S.
