But with the resumption of min

the exception of the citlos directly
affected by the Butte conditions no
cities or towns report alarming Idle

unemployed, but the number of lalo
men will be the same, practically,

War ami Peace
Washington, Feb. 18. Interna
tionalism has come, or Is cowing,
aud the world must choose between
a sane Internationalism or an an
archistic one, Senator Hlfbcock,
chairman of the senate foreign re
latlons committee declared today In
a speech to the senate on the league
of nations,
"Those who attack the luague as
a form or internationalism are too
late," said Hitchcock.
"Humanity will not tolerate wars
over questions that can be sottled by
peaceful methods along the line of
Justice and reason.
"Men will not allow themselves to
be led forever to slaughter uselessly
and unnecessarily.
"Which shall It be war and pre
paration for war, or a league or na
tions? These are the alternatives.
. "Senators -who criticize the league
of nations tnd -who magnify Its dif
ference and dangers see in disposed
to Ignore the alternative. " ;
"What If we have no league of
natlonsT What If , the peace to be
signed becomes like other peace
that have been entered Into merely
a truce when each nation of the
world proceeds to prepare itself for
the next war?
"Before this war the United States
and the four great nations associated
with the United States were spend
ing $642,000,000 it year on their
armies and 1600,000,000 a year on
their navlos. ,
"If no league of nations Is estab
lished these permanent expenditures
will be enormously Increased.- Each
will become more than over an
armed camp.
"If we fall to adopt an Interna
tionalism of governments that unite
to end wars, we shall be face to face
with the Internationalism of the in
dividual. '
"We cannot deny the fact that
France and Italy, one a republic and
the othor a limited democracy are
under the control of socialistic lead
ers and sociallstlo Ideas."
