PROMOTE CULT CF PEACE Dutch" Statesman Lauds Founder of Palace Xelidoff Claims Credit for Czar of Starting Peace Movement, THE HAGUE. July 30. The founda tion stone of the Andrew Carnegie Palace of Peace was lajd this after noon at Zorgrvllet In the midst of the wooded park stretching from The Hague to Schvenlngen by M. Nelldoff, president of the second peace confer ence. Practically all the delegates attending the present peace conference, a num ber of high court officials, the mem bers of the States General and the del egations, from numerous civic and mu nicipal bodies were grouped around the stone, which, when the structure Is completed, will form the corner of the grand hall of justice. Chiseled on the stone in bold Roman characters is the following Latin in scription: "Pad, Justltlae. flrmandae, hanc, aedom, Andrae Carnegie, munlflcentia, dedlcavit." Place Right Above Might. The ceremonies were opened with music and singing by a number of choral societies, after which M. A. P. C. Van Karnebeak, president of the Carnegie foundation commlttet, de livered an address in which he paid a tribute to the "generous man whose name is engraved upon the first stone of the edifice due to his munificence." The thoughts and the thanks of every one went out, the speaker said to Andrew Carnegie. Then rapidly sketching the history of the Carnegie donation and describing the plans of the peace palace, which It is proposed to ask the powers that have signed the Hague convention to furnish, M. Van Karnebeak concluded with these words: "This is to be a palace of interna tional justice founded as the outcome of the need of every civilized country to substitute the rule of right for the rule of might. In this palace no one will be stronger, on one weaker, than the other, and no other blade except the sword of justice will be placed in the scale. The tower of the palace will point to the stars, indicating the ideal of our efforts." ' Promote Worship of Peace. M. Nelldoff expressed the gratitude of the peace delegates to the munifi cent donor of the palace and to the Netherland government for the gift of the land for the edifice. The palace, he said, would be a monument to the first efforts made by the governments of the world to preserve to the Nations the benefits of peaceful development by seeking to prevent wars. The speaker said he wished to emphasize the almost sacred character of the pro posed building. It represented a new principle in the relations of people, namely, peace by justice and right. M. Nelidoff then referred to the anti quity of the worship of war, and said there had never been a cult of peace of the world. Of all the precepts preached by the Saviour 1800 years ago, the idea of peace had been the most neglected. "To make this idea triumph and the honor there for accrues to the Em peror of Russia the governments of the world must agree to study in com mon a means of making universal peace a study by seeking every pos sibility of assuring its maintenance," said M. Nelldoff. Real Estate Boomer Busy. Some disappointment is felt that Queen Wllhelmina, who is at the Hague, was not present at the cere monies, and it is reported that the real reason for her absence Is to ba found in a dispute of a site for the palace. Real estate speculators are openly ac cused of having Influenced the selec tion of the site at Zorxliet. WILSON'S SEATTLE SPEECH Secretary Advocates Third Term for Roosevelt. SEATTLE, Wash., July 30.

While the officials of the steel corporation will continue the conciliatory attitude which they thus far have maintained toward the striking ore dock employes, it is not believed that they will hold open to them an opportunity to return to work more than 24 hours.
