POINCARE SAYS
NATION LEAGUE
NECESSARY TO
FUTURE PEACE
In Brilliant Address at Opening
of Paris Conference, French
President Declares Allies
Would Lay Down Rules.
(Continued from Paso One.)
tloe is the fact that none of the people
of whom you are the delegates has hud
any part in injustice. Humanity can
place confidence in you, because you
are not among - those who have outraged
the rights of humanity.
TRUTH BATHED IN BLOOD.
' There is no need of further informa
tion or for special inquiries into the
origin of the drama which has just
shaken the world. The truth, bathed
In blood, has already escaped from the
imperial archives. The premeditated
character of the trap is today clearly
proved.
"In the hope of conquering first the
hegemony of Europe and next the mas
tery of the world, the central empir- s
bound together by a secret plot found
the most abominable pretext, for trying
to crush Serbia and force their way to
the east. At the same time they dis
owned the most solemn undertaIcings,
in order to crush Belgium and force
their way into the heart of France.
These are the two unforgettable out
rages which opened the way to aggres
sion. The combined efforts of Great
Britain, France and Russia, broke
themselves against that man-made ar
rogance.
•'If, after long vicissitudes, those who
wished to reign by the sword have per
ished by the sword, they have but
themselves to blame. They have been
destroyed by their own blindness. What
could be more significant than the
shameful bargains they attempted to
offer to Great Britain and France at
the end of July, 1914, when together
they suggest« d, "allow us to attack
France on land and we will not enter
the channel," and when they instructed
their ambassador to say to France:
"We will only accept a declaration of
neutrality on your part if you surren
der to us Brier. Toul and Verdun."
CLASH OF TWO IDEAS.
"It is in the light of these facts, gen
tlemen, that all the conclusions you
will have to draw from the war will
take shape.
"Your nations entered tho war suc
cessively. but came one. and all to tho
help of threatened right.
"Like Germany, Great Britain and
Franco had guaranteed the independ
ence of Belgium. Germany sought to
crush Belgium, Great Britain and
France, botli swore to aid her. Thus
from the very beginning of hostilities
came into conflict the two ideas which
for 50 months were to struggle for thi
dominion of the world—the idea of sov
ereign force which accepts neither con
trol nor check, and the idea of justice
which depends on tho sword only to
prevent or repress the abuse of
strength.
"Faithfully supported by her domin
ions and colonies, Great Britain decid
ed that she

country was involved. She lu
ild not remain aloof from j
made, I
and lier dominions and colonies have I
made with her, prodigious efforts to
prevent the war from ending in the tii
umplUof the spirit of conquest and the ;
destruction <»f right. '
"Japan in her turn only decided ;.o ,
take up arm: - , out of loyalty to Great
Britain, her great ally, and from the
consciousness of the danger in which
both Asia and Europe would have stood
from the hegemony of which the Ger
manic empires dreamed.
'•Italy, who from the first had refused
to lend a helping lmnd to Kerman am-,
bition, rose against an .v,-long foe

peoples and to destroy at, the cost or

realize that national unity which
opposed by the same powers of arbi
trary force. Abandoned, betrayed and
strangled, she had to submit, to mi
abominable treaty tfie revision of which
you will exact.
"Greece, whom the enemy for many
months tried to turn from her tradi
tions and destinies, raised an army to
stop attempts at domination of which
she felt the growing threat.
"Portugal. China and Siam al n
doned neutrality only to eseap* the
strangling pressure of the central pow
ers. Thus it was the extent of Ger
man ambitions that brought so many
people, great and small, to align
against the same adversary.
"And what shall I say of the solemn
resolution taken by the United States
in the spring of 1917, under the aus
pices of the illustrious president, Mr.
Wilson, who I am happy to greet here

SUPREME JUDGMENT.
"Tho intervention of the United
States was something more, something
greater than, a great political and mili
tary (vent. It was a supreme Judg
ment passed at the bar of history by
the enormous (words missing) of lofty
eons< ienee of a free people and their

sponsibilities incurred in tie frightful 1
conduct which was lacerating human- i

was soaring .and to place itself sub
missively at the service of violence;
t lowering the religious ideals to the ox
tent or making God tHo. complacent
auxiliary of their passions and the ac
complice of their crimes.
COUNTING AS NAUGHT.
In short, counting as naught the
traditions and wills and lives of citi
zens, the honor of women and all those
principles of public and private mo
rality which we for our part, have cn
dravored to keep it unaltered through
tin* war, and which neither nations nor
peoples ni repudiate or disregard
with impunity.
"While tlie conflict was gradually
extending over tin* entire surface of
the earth, the clanking of chains was
heard here and there and captive na
tionalities from the cages from their
lifelong jails cried out to us to help.
Yet more* ,they escaped to our aid.
Poland came to life again, sent us
troops. The Czecho-Hlavs won their
right to independent-»' in Siberia, in
Franco and in Italy. The Jugo-Slavs,
the Armenians, tin Serbians and the
Lebanese, the Arabs ,al! the oppressed
peoples, all the victims of long help
less or resigned of great historic deeds
of injustice; all the martyrs of the
I past, all the outraged consciences, all
I the strangled liberties reviewed the
j clash of arms and turned toward uf
as their natural defenders.
I "War gradually attained the fullness
j of its significance and it became in
I the fullest sense of the term, a cru
sade of humanity for right, and if
anything can console uh, in part at
least, for the losses we have suffered,
it is assuredly thought that our vic
tory is also the victory of right. This
victory is complete, for the enemy
only asked for the armistice to escape
from an irretrievable military dis
aster. In the event of justice and
ularly the giving of hind and homes to
workers and soldiers. His principal ad
visers represent tho land owning inter
ests, it is said. They will oppose such
moves. Andrew Bonar Law, as leader
of tho house of commons, and Earl
peace, it now rests with you to reap
from this victory its full fruits.
NO PLACE FOR HUN.
"In order to carry out this immense
task you have decided to admit at
first only the allied or associated
powers and, insofar as their interests
are involved in the debates, the na
tions which remained neutral. You
have thought that the terms of peace
ought to be settled among ourselves
before they are communicated to those
against whom we have together
fought tile good fight.
"The solidarity which has united us
during tho war and has enabled us to
win military success ought to remain
unimpaired during the negotiations
for and after the signing of the
treaty. Injustice demands first, when
it has been violated, restitution and
reparation for the peoples and indi
viduals who have been despoiled or
maltreated. In formulating this law
lui claim, justice obeys neither hatred
not an instinctive or thoughtless de
sire for reprisal; it pursues a two
fold "bj 't to render to each his due
J, nd not to encourage crime through
* e '
ring it unpunished.
What justice also
demands,
; M ,!l *ed by the same feeling, is the pun- i
ishment of the guilty and effective
Suarantees against an active return
of the spirit by which they were
prompted. And it Is logical to de
mand that these guarantees should be
given .above all to the nations that
have boon and might again ho most
exposed to aggressions or threats; to
those who have many times stood in
danger of being submerged by the
periodic tide of the same invasion.
WHAT JUSTICE BANISHES.
"What justice banishes is the dream
of conquest and imperialism, contempt
fur national will, the arbitrary ex
change of provinces between states, as
though peoples were but articles of
furniture or pawns in a game. The
time is no more when diplomats could
meet to redraw, with authority, the
map of the empires on the corner of
a table. If you are to remake the
map of the world, it is in the name of
the peoples, and on condition that
you shall faithfully interpret their
thoughts and respect the right of na
tions, small and great, to dispose of
themselves and *o recognize the right
of minorities, a formidable task which
science and history, your two ad
visors, will contribute to expedite and
facilitate.
"You will naturally strive, to secure
the material and moral means of sub
sistence for ul those people who are
constituted or reconstituted into
states; for those who wish to unite
themselves to their neighbors; fur
those who divide themselves into sep
arate units; for those who recognize
themselves to their neighbors; for
those who divide themselves accord
ing to their regained traditions, and
lastly, for al those whose freedom you
have already sanctioned, or are about
to sanction. You will not call them
into existance only to sentence them
to death immediately. You would like
your work in this, as in all other mat
ters. to be fruitful and lusting.
"While thus introducing into the
world as much harmony ns possible,
you wil in conformity with the four
teenth of President Wilson's propo
sitions, unanimously adopted by the
allied powers, establish a general
league of nations which will be* su
preme guarantee against any fresh
assault upon the right of peoples.
ESSENTIAL AIMS.
"You do not Intend this International
assolation to be directed against any
body in the future. You will not off
set its purpose and shut off anybody,
but having been organized by the na
tions that have sacrificed themselves
in defense of right, it will receive from
them its statutes and fundamental
rules. It will lay down conditions to
hold important berths in tho cabinet

Hume Long succeeds Sir Eric Geddes

ister without portfolio.
which its present or future members
must adhere. It will have for its es
sential aim to prevent as far as pos
sible, the renewal of war. It will,
above all, seek to gain respect for tho
peace whi&i you will have established
and will find it less difficult to main
tain in proportion as this peace will
in itself imply greater realities of jus
tice and safer guarantees of stability.
"By establishing this new order of
things you will meet the aspirations of
humanity, which, after the frightful
convulsions of their bloodstained years,
ardently wishes to feel itself protected
by a union of free people against the
ever possible revival of primitive sav
agery.
IMMORTAL GLORY.
"An immortal glory will attach to the
name of the nations and the men who
have desired to co-operate in this
grand work on tho faith and brother
hood and who have taken pains to
eliminate from th<- future peace, causes
of disturbance and instability.
"This very day, 48 years ago, on the
ISth of January, 1871, tin* German em
pire was proclaimed by an army of in
vasion in the chateau at Versailles. It
was celebrated by the theft of two
*h provinces. It was thus violât
e( j f rom origin and by the fault <
its 1 founders, born in injustice, it has
ended *n oblivion. You are assembled
in oidf.i to repair the evil ; :. ■lua;
ItV'on done and tc* prevent a recurrence
of It. You hold In your hands the fu
ture of tho world.
' i leave you gentlemen to your grave
deliberations, a ad declare the confer

"president Wilson has special an
thority to say that this is the first
time in fact that tlie world has over
seen assembled together a. delegation
of all the civilized nations of the
earth. Tlie greater has been the
bloody catastrophe which has devas
tated and ruined one of the richest

splendid must be the reparation, not
only the material reparation, Ute vul

at length escape from the fatal em
brace of ruinous wars which destroy
everything, heap up ruins, terrorize
the populace and prevent them from

NOBLE AMBITION.
"It is agreat, splendid and noble
ambition which has come to all of us.
It is desirable that success should
crown our efforls. This cannot take
place unless we have all 1 Irmly fixed
and clearly determined ideas on what
we wish to do. 1 said in the chamber
a few days ago, and I wish to repeat
itéré, success is not possible unless we
remain firmly united. We have come
together as friends; we must leave

that comes to me. All else must be

not willing to make In order to ac

will make these sacrifices but on tho
condition that we endeavor impartially
to concllitute interests apparently cott
jtradictory on the higher plane of a

that gentlemen, is what I had to say

at the evidence of good will and friend

"The program of this conference has
been laid dow n by President Wilson.
It is no longer the peace of more or

of continents; it Is the peace of nations
that Is to bo made. This program is
