The Federal Council of churches
acts for peace the very moment its
officers return from the abortive Con
stance peace conference. It formally
approves president Wilson's offer ot
mediation between the warring Euro
pean nations, and commends secretary
Bryan's position that America ought
not to loan money to belligerents. It
appeals to president 'Wilson to send
identical notes to all European coun
tries calling attention to the dangers
of a repetition of Balkan atrocities,
and to the Protestant churches of Eu
rope asking that all members having
friends in the armies to write them
beseeching them to resist all tempta
tion to savage practices.
Endorsing the general principle ot
the Bryan peace treaties, the council
recommends a universal treaty between
nations requiring definite time to
elapse between the declaration of war
and the beginning ef actual war; that
in the interval a commission of signa
tory powers make investigation of war
causes and publish a report to the
world: and then that signatory pow
ers agree to enforce the observance
of the agreement upon the nation that
transgresses it by immediate military
Intervention. The council finally urges
all people of the United States to do
nothing that might draw us into the
present conflict, because at least one
first rate power must remain to ar
bitrate. President Wilson Is asked by the
council to recommend a Saturday and
Sunday of early date when all people
of the United States shall repair to
their places of public religious worship
and there pray for peace between na
tions, and for wisdom on the part of
the United States to assist nations now
at war to abolish passion and hatred
and come to just settlements ot aii
ferences. The council announces that
these plans are a part of its general
one to keep right on the job of bring
