As the Oregonian Sees It
(One nscda only to attempt to
picturo what sort of trcuty
would hate been made If victory
had been won nnd peace made
without the co-operation of tho
United States in order to real
ize what a deep impress tho
fourteen points havo left on the
terms actually made. In all pro
bability tho Rhine provinces
and tho Saar basin would have
been annexed to France; Flume
and Dalmatia would havo been
' given to Italy, shutting in the
Jugo-Slavs with only a narrow
sea front; Danzig and its Ger
man population might have
boen given outright to Poland;
tho infamous Hapsburg empire
mlffht in somo way havo beenj
natchod un and held together
Turkev would have been divided
amoncr tho victors with limited
regard to tho wishes of its
paoples, and tho German colonies
would havo been parcelod out
without recognition of the prin
clple that their rulers are trus
tees for their people. An in
demnity mldit have been exact
cd from Germany that woulc:
havo been an huge as literally
to roduco that country to Borvi-
tudo for several generations.
Such, a scttUmcnt would have
been tho inevitable consequence
of tho secret bargains made
among tho allies and would have
contained tho germs of many
war. At ovcry noint wher
tho treaty of Vraailles differs
from such n settlement, St
makes a close appoach to the
fourteen points an I contains
security RgainBt war.
Whore the treaty de arts from
tho fourteen noints. or appears
to do so, tho fact is capable of
an explanation that will satisfy
a reasonable mind, though there
may bo reirrot that a closor an
proach to justice could not be
mado. Tho most striking cnHe
is that of Shantung. As to that
it should not be forgotten that
China evidently declared war
in order to gain the status of a
bolipercnt, and, consequently, to
have a seat at tho peace table,
where it could get help against
Japan's claim to Shantung.
China wns almost a cipher as an
actual belligorent. and for all it
could have dono Germany might
havo held Kino Chow to this
day. China did not hold it
when war begun, and did not
take it from Germany, Japan
took it, and when Japan is al
lowed to hold it, China losos
nothing which it already had.
China fails to recover that
which it was powerless to re
take. Tho conference had reject
ed Janan'a claim to sovereignty
instead of mandato over the
Caroline and Marshall islands
and the claim of equity of races.
If it had given Japan a third
rebuff, that country might have
bolted tho conference.hcld Shan
tuner and said to the allies.
"What are you going to do
about it?" There would have
been one of two things to do
let Jaoan keen it or make war
on Japan. That or tho milder
exoedient of an economic boy
cott would have been fraught
with danger that Japan might
ioin forces with the Russian
lolshevists and the Germans.
Then the wearied allies would
have had to fight in a field ex
tending from the North sea to
the Pacific, and in all proba
bility Japan would have con
quwed all of China, instead
of only Shantung, Knowing
much more than the average
man about risks, the conference
chcxe the lets evil, trusting to
"right the wrongs of China in
the future, when that country be
'olme better able to help itself.
The refusal of the peace con
ference to consider the cases of
Ireland and Egypt is quite
natural to any person who con
sidergjor what purpose it met.
lit met to agree on terms to bo
made with the central powers,
not to readjust the affairs of
the allies. Therefore, it had
nothing to do with the relations
of Ireland and Egypt to Eng
land. Those matters may be
taken up by the league as con
cerning the peace of thet world,
and probably the intention has
already been formed to take
them up as soon as the league
has been fully organized. 'But
failure to consider them does
violence to the fourteen
points, which were put forward
aa the basis of neace with the
central powers, not as the basis
of an immediate general re
organization of the universe.
To restore peaee and form the
league is a fair sized job for
The veto on union of German
Austria with the German re
public is a reetrietion oh the

it is justified by the facta. The

of Germany In the crime of
1914. If they were united to
Germany, they would compen
sate for tho loss of population
due to the treaty, Germany
would then bo a compact state
of nearly 70,000.000 surround
ed by much smaller states, and
German Austria would bo a
wedgo inserted between the
Czechs and Jugo Slavs. There
a Hancor to npnrp in that
situation. The allies have the
right to guard against it by
depriving theso people of the
right to unite, as a guaranty
against aggression. After a
period of probation, Germany
and Austria have given proof of
laving abandoned desire for
conquest. Mean while they
must be punished by being kept
apart, their right being sus
pended as are those of a convict.
Much is made of the inclusion
of a large German population in
Bohemia, but how it came it
there? Bohemia was a Czech
country when "the Hansburcs
annexed it, aid they set to work
to Germanize it by enciuraging
German settlement, while they
drove out the Czechs by every
oppressive device. To cut otf
this German occupied territory
and give it to Germany or Aus
tria would be to put the stamn
of approval on a crime.
When we consider the reasons
for the compromises which the
treaty contains and the probable
consequence of refusal to make
tnem, and wnen we compare
the treaty as it is with what it
probably would have been with
out Mr. Wilson a participation.
we are confirmed in the opinion
that be did hold his own and
that it does bear his Impress.

have done better,' but it was

Professor Knowlton, in his
