New York, Sept 30.The price of

nations formed, not before or after,
but at the peace conference, and Ger

This was President Wilson's answer,
given Friday night before an audience
of fourth Liberty loan workers here,
to the recent peace talk from the cen
tral powers.
The President's Address.
The president spoke In part as fol
"My Fellow Citizens: I am not
here to promote the loan. That will
he doneably and enthusiastically
doneby the hundreds of thousands
of loyal and tireless men and women
who have undertaken to present It to
you and to our fellow citizens through
out the country, and I have not the
least doubt of their complete success,
for I know their spirit and the spirit
of the country.
"No man or woman who has really
taken In what this war means can hes
itate to give to the very limit of what
they have.
"And It is my mission here to try
o make clear once more what the
war really means. You will need no
other stimulation.
"We accepted the Issues of the war
as facts, not as any group of men
either here or elsewhere had defined
them, and we can accept no outcome
which does not squarely meet and set
tle them.
The War's Issues.
"Those Issues are these:
"Shall the military power of any na
tion or group of nations be suffered
to determine the fortunes of peoples
over whom they have no right to
rule except the right of force?
"Shall strong nations be free to
wrong weak nations and make them
subject to their purpose and interest?
"Shall people be ruled and dominat
ed, even In their own Internal af
fairs, by arbitrary and. irresponsible
force, or by their own will and choice?
"Shall there be a common stand
ard of right and privilege for all peo
ples and nations or shall the strong
do ss they will and the weak suffer
without redress?
"Shall the assertion of right be hap
hazard and by casual alliance or shall
There be a common concert to oblige
the observance of common rights?
"No man, no group of men, chose
these to be the Issues of the strug
gle. They are the Issues of It, and
they must be settled by no arrange*
men or compromise or adjustment of
Interests, but definitely and once for
,all and with a full and unequivocal
acceptance of the principle that the
Interest of the weakest is as sacred
as the Interest of the strongest
"This is what we mean when we
apeak of a permanent peace, If we
speak sincerely, Intelligently, and
with a real knowledge and comprehen
sion of the matter we deal with.
"We are all agreed that there can be
BO peace obtained by any kind of bar
gain or compromise with the govern
ments of the central empires, because
we have dealt with them already and
have seen them deal with other govern
ments that were party to this struggle,
at Brest-Lltovsk and Bucharest.
"They have convinced us that they
are without honor and do not Intend
Justice. They observe no covenants,
accept no principle but force and their
own interests.
"We cannot 'come to terms' with
them. They have made It Impossible.
"The German people must by this
time be fully aware that we cannot ac
cept the word of those who forced this
war upon us. We do not think the
name thoughts or speak the same lan
guage of agreement.
"It Is of capital Importance that we
should be explicitly agreed that no
peace shall be obtained by any kind of
compromise or abatement of the prin
ciples wo have avowed as the princi
ples for which we are fighting. There
should exist no doubt about that I
am, therefore, going to take the liber-

ty of speaking with the utmost frank
ness about the practical implications
that are involved in it.
Foe Must Pay Price.
"If it be in deed and in truth the
common object of the governments as
sociated against Germany and of the
nations whom they govern, as I believe
it to be, to achieve by the coming set
tlements a secure and lasting peace it
will be necessary that all who sit down
at the peace table shall come ready
and willing to pay the price, the only
price that will procure it and ready
and willing also to create in some"
virile fashion the only instrumentality
by which it can be made certain that
the agreements of the peace will be
honored and fulfilled.
"That price is impartial justice in
every item of settlement, no matter
whose interest is crossed not only im
partial justice, but also the satisfac
tion of the several peoples whose for
tunes are dealt with. That indispen
sable instrumentality is a league of
nations formed under covenants that
will be efficacious.
"Without such instrumentality, by
which the peace of the world can be
guaranteed, peace will rest in part
upon the word of outlaws and only
upon that word. For Germany will
have to redeem her character, not only
by what happens at the peace table
but what follows.
"And, as I see it, the constitution of
that league of nations and the clear
definition of its objects must be a part,
is in a sense the most essential part,
of the peace settlement itself. It can
not be formed now. If formed, now, It
would be merely "a new alliance con
fined to the nations associated against
a common enemy. It is not likely that
it could be formed after that settle
"It is necessary to guarantee the
peace, and the peace cannot be guar
anteed as an afterthought. The rea

why it must be guaranteed, is that

connection with the peace settlement
itself to remove that source of Inse

own duty with regard to peace:
"FIRSTThe Impartial justice
meted out must Involve no discrimina
tion between those to whom we wish to
be just and those to whom we do not
wish to be Just. It must be a Justice
that plays no favorites and knows no
standard but the equal rights of the
several peoples.
"SECONDNo special or separate
Interest of any single nation or any
group of nations can be made the
basis of any part of the settlement
which is not consistent with the com
mon Interest of all.
"THIRDThere can be no leagues
or alliances or special covenants and
understandings within the* general and
common family of the league of na
"FOURTHAnd more specifically,
there can be no special, selfish, econo
mic combinations within the league
.and no employment of any force of
economic boycott for exclusion except
as the power of economic penalty By
exclusion from the markets of the
world may be vested In the league of
nations Itself as a means of discipline
and control.
"FIFTHAll international agree
ments and treaties of every kind must
be made known In their entirety to
the rest of the world.
"Special alliances and economic
rivalries and hostilities have been
the prolific sources in the modern
world of the plans and passions that
produce war. It would be an Insin
cere as well as Insecure peace that
did not exclude them in definite and
binding terms,

should be.
"They are not yet satisfied with
what they have been told. They still

only In the terms of territorial ar
rangements and the divisions of pow

Practically Impossible to Forward the
Full Result of the DrawingAr
rangements Made for District Boards
Announce This Later.
The president In person opened the
ceremony, of drawing numbers for the
13,000,000 men registered in the new
draft. The capsule he drew'contained
the number 322.
Amid ceremonies profoundly im
pressive and of transcendent historical
significance. Gen. Peyton C. March,
chief of staff of the army, received la
person this vast force of as yet ununl
formed reserves, on behalf of the mil
itary branch of the government
4,000,000 In Arms by July.
And from this reservoir of man pow
erthe largest body of citizen soldiers
ever offered by the people of any na
tion to their governmentGeneral
March is to recruit the army of 4,001V
000 men which he has promised to
have overseas by July 1 next to back
up General Pershing on the battlefields
of Europe.
Every man In the registration la af
fected, as from those who are not
called for active military duty the
country's war managers propose to
mobilize a great Industrial army of
war workers to make certain of a con
stantly flowing stream of men and mu
nitions to the field of battle.
The roll call, which Is to assign to
each of the 13,000,000 men a military
number determining the order In
which he is to be called, was begun by
President Wilson himself, and not fin
ished until late In the afternoon next
As the tally sheets were filled they
were rushed over to the government
printing office for the official master
list, which, when completed, were sent
by General Crowder to all district
boards throughout the country, which,
in turn' were to make them public
through the newspapers. In that way
the country at large was Informed of
the order of all the numbers within a
few days.
Wilson Is Applauded.
There was a hearty round of ap
plause as the president, blindfolded
with a piece of cloth taken from the
covering of one of the chairs used
at the signing of the Declaration of
Independence, approached the table
on which rested the famous glass
bowl used upon the first drawing.
Provost Marshal Gen. Crowder guid
ed his hand as he reached down Into
the bowl to pick one of the 17,000 blue
capsules containing the numbers.
There was increased handclapplng
when It was announced that the first
number of the drawing was 322, for
the number which the president drew
has a registrant representing it In
every one of the 4,557 local boards in
the country. Every man whose serial
number corresponds to It may there
fore consider that the command to
"march" or "work" comes from the
commander in chief himself.
Vice President Marshall, similarly
blindfolded, picked put the second
number. It proved to be a high num-
ber7,277which will be order No. 2
for all boards having registrants bear
ing that number. The average number
of registrants to a board ranges only
from 2,800 to 3,000.
