What will be our toll if we take part? Over five millions wounded. What will be our share if we be come a participant? The nations at war are now spending four hundred million o a s e w e e k o e a n twenty billions per year v\ hat will our expenditures be? Before we decide to "go in at any cost" let some of the ad\o cates of war give us an estimate. We arc a great nation and can not l»e stingv with blood or money if we cast in our lot with the bel ligerents. And what ia to be gained by war? Protection of American rights? No, that can lie secun ,| without loss of life, money "r honor it can be secured without arousing hatred which would last a century. And what would we lose by en tering into the war? Men? Yes, no one knows how many. Money'.' Yes, no one knows how mu But more than that, we would lose o u a e a s e e a e o e neutral nations and the oppor tunity to mediate when the time for mediation comes we would lose the priceless privilege of using our good offices as a friend to assist in laying the foundation of permanent peacp. There is no excuse for war. Our grievances we have th-m against both sides do not justify war and the treaty plan furnishes the machinery for maintaining an honorable peace. Those who talk war misrepresent the wisl.es of the people. You can no more measure by the Iroth of the jingo press than you can meas ure the ocean's silent depts by the foam upon its waves.—W. J.
