IV EN a permanent world congress
I developed out of the congress of
settlement between the belliger
ents, a world alliance, with as a last
resort a call upon the forces of the
associated powers, for dealing with re
calcitrants, then a great number of pos
sibilities open out to humanity that
must otherwise remain inaccessible.
But before we go on to consider these
It may be wise to point out how much
more likely a world congress is to ef
fect a satisfactory settlement at the
end of this war than a congress con
fined to the belligerents.
The war has progressed sufficiently
to convince every one that there is now"
no possibility of an overwhelming vic
tory for Germany. It must end In . a
more or less complete defeat of th
German and Turkish alliance, and in a
considerable readjustment of Austrian
and Turkish boundaries.
Assisted by the generosity of the
doomed Austrians and Turks, the Ger
mans are fighting now to secure a
voice as large as possible in the final
settlement, and it is conceivable that in
ine end that settlement may be made
quite an attractive one for Germany
proper by the crowning sacrifice of sui
cide on the part of her two subordtn
ated allies.
1 Russia to Gain Sen,
There can be little doubt that Russi
will gain the enormous advantage of
free opening into the Mediterranea
and that the battle of the Marne turned
the fortunes of France from disaster to
expansion. But the rest of the settle
ment is still vague and uncertain, and
uerman imperialism, at least, is al
ready working hard and intelligently
for a favorable situation at the climax,
a situation that will enable this mill
tarist empire to emerge still strong,

renewal at no very remote date of th
struggle for European predominance,

constitution of the state: a member of

a Justice of the Supreme Court of

Soon after the war with Spain he
became Secretary to Torto Rico, and
In 1901 was made Governor of Porto
Rico. In 1904 he was appointed United
States Judge for the District of Mon
tana and subsequently was made a
member of the United States Court of
Customs Appeals.
In 1910 he was made an additional
United States Circuit Judge and was
designated by President Taft to serve
three years as one of the Judges of
the then newly-created but now de
funct Interstate Commerce Court.
Expression of Sorrow Gives Out by
Ambassador Attack Gives Ip
Wheat Truth la Learned.
WASHINGTON, March 7. The Gerr
man embassy issued tonight the fol
lowing in explanation of the recent at
tack on the British hospital ship As-turlas:
Government sorry to admit British
hospital ship Astunas was attacked on
February 1. 5:05 P. M.. coming up in
twilight carrying lights as prescribed
for ordinary steamers, the ship was
taken for transport conveying troops.
Distinctive marks showing character of
ship not being Illuminated were only
recognized after a shot had been urea
Fortunately the torpedo failed to ex
plode. The moment the ship was rec
ognized as a hospital ship every at
tempt at further attack immediately
was aiven up"
The statement, signed by the Am
bassador, Count Bernstorff, and in quo
tation marks as shown, has the ap
pearance of a cablegram which had not
been filled out on translation from
code. No comment on the statement
was obtainable.
The Asturias was about 15 miles
northeast of Havre, France, when she
was attacked on February 1. Press re
ports said her commander observed the
torpedo fired by a submarine and suc
ceeded in evading it.
Lien Collections to Hit Them First,
City Attorney Tells Them.
OREGON CITY, March 7. (Special.)
The South Fork Water Commission
was clothed with authority last night,
when the Council went through the
formality of canvassing the vote of
Wednesday and declared the amend
ment to the city charter, authorizing
the $375,000 bond issue to build the 25.
mile steel line, passed. The commis
sion will meet Tuesday and organize.
The Council instructed City Attorney
Schuebel to take steps at once to col
lect unpaid liens under the Bancroft
act amounting to about $20,000.
I want to tell you that some of
you city officials will be the first to
suffer by your own action, for on the
lists I have, I have found the names
of several." said Mr. Schuebel when the
action had been taken without a dis
senting vote.
Imports for February Increase but
Exports Show Heavy Decrease.
LONDON. March 7. The figures of
the Board of Trade for February show
that during this month Great Britain's
Imports increased 818,075,000, while ex
ports decreased $75,425,000.
The principal increase In imports was
in food, amounting to $35,000,000. This
was offset by a decrease in the importa
tion of manufactured articles of $17,

the rest of the world, but It is the only
way In which militant imperialism can
survive at all.
The alternative of an imperialism
shorn of the glamour of aggression, be
coming constitutional and democratic
the alternative, that is to say. of
great liberal Germany is one that will
be as distasteful almost to the people
who control the destinies of Germany
today, and who will speak and act fo
Germany in the final settlement, as
complete submission to a Serbian con
queror would be.
At the final conference of settlemen
Germany will not be really represented
t ali. The Prussian militarist empire
will still be In existence, and It will
sit at the council, working primarily
for its own survival. Unless the allie
insist upon the presence of represents
tives of Saxony, Bavaria and so forth,
and demand the evidence of popular
sanctions a thing they are very un
likely to demand that is what "Ger
many" will signify at the conference.
And what is true of Germany will be
true, more of less, of several other of
the allied powers.
Peep at Conference Taken.
A conference confined purely to the
belligerents will be, in fact, a confer
ence not even representative of the
belligerents. And it will be tainted
with all the traditional policies, ag
gressions, suspicions and subterfuges
that led up to the war. It will not be
the end of the old game, but the read
justment of the old game, the old game
which is such an abominable nuisance
to the development of modern civiliza
tion. The idealism of the great alliance
will certainly be subjected to enormous
strains, and the whole energy of the
Central European diplomatists will be
directed to developing and utilizing
these stresses.
This, I think, must be manifest even
to the foreign offices most concerned.
They must see already ahead of them a
terrible puzzle of arrangement, a puz
zle their own bad traditions will cer
tainly never permit them to solve.
"God save us," they may very well pray,
"from our own cleverness and sharp
dealing," and they may even welcome
the promise of an enlarged outlook that
the entry of the neutral powers would
bring with It.
Every foreign office has its ugly,
evil elements, and probably every for
eign office dreads those elements. There
are certainly Russians fools who dream
about India, German fools who dream
about Canada and South America. Brit
tsh fools who dream about Africa and
the East: aggressionlsts in the blood.
people who can no more let nations
live in peace than kleptomaniacs can
keep their hands in their own pockets.
But quite conceivably there are honest
monarchs and sane foreign ministers
very ready to snatch at the chance of
swamping the evil in their own Chan
cellories. It is just here that the value of neu
tral participation will come Jn. What
ever ambitions the neutral powers may
have of their own. It may be said gen
erally that they are keenly interested
In preventing the settlement from de
genrating into a deal in points of van
tage for any further aggressions In any
Both the United States of America
and China are trattonaily and incurably
pacific powers, professing and practic
ing an unaggressive policy, and the
chief outstanding minor states are
equally concerned in securing & settle
ment that shall settle.
And, moreover, so wide reaching now
are all International agreements that
they have not only a claim to intervene
juridically, but they have the much
more pressing claim to participate on
the ground that no sort of readjust
ment of Europe, Western Asia and Af
rica can leave their own future unaf
fected. They are wanted not only in
the interests of the belligerent peoples,
but for their own sakes and the welfare
of the world all together.
Now a world conference, once it is
assembled, can take up certain ques
tions that no partial treatment can ever
hope to meet. The first of the ques
tions is disarmament. No one who has
watched the politics of the last 40 years
can doubt the very great snare the
business and finance of armament man
ufacture has played in bringing about
the present horrible killing, and no one
who has read accounts of the fighting
can doubt how much this industry has
enhanced the torment, cruelty and mon
strosity of war.
The increased dreadfulness of war
due to modern weapons is, however,
only one consequence of their develop
ment. Modern war is entirely dependent
.upon equipment of the most costly and
elaborate sort. A general agreement
to reduce that equipment would not
only greatly minimize the evil of any
war that did break out, but it would go
a long way toward the abolition of
Tine to Offer Apologies."
There has been much in America,
much said and much done, sinoe the
war broke out that has surprised the
world. - I may confess for myself, and
I believe that I shall speak for many
other Europeans in this matter, that
what we feared most in the United
States was levity. We expected more
excitement, violent fluctuations of opin
ion, a confused irresponsibility, and
possibly mischievous and disastrous in
terventions. It is no good hiding an
open secret. We judged America by
the peace headline. It is time we be
gan to offer our apologies to America
and democracy. The result of reading j
endless various American newspapers,
and articles, of following the actions of
the American Government, of talking
to representative Americans, is to real
ize the existence of a very clear, strong
national mentality, a firm, self-con
trolled, collective will, far more consid
erable in its totality than the world
has ever seen before.
We thought the United States would
be sentimentally patriotic and irrespon
sible, that they would behave as
though the New World was, indeed, a
separate planet, and as though they
had neither duties nor brotherhood in
Europe. It is quite clear, on the con
trary, that the people of the United
States consider this war as their affair
also, and that they have the keenest
sense cf their responsibility for the
general welfare of mankind.
So that as a second chance, after the
possibility of a broad handling of the
settlement by the Czar, and as a very
much bigger probability, is the insist
ence by America upon her right to a
voice in the ultimate settlement and an
Initiative from the Western Hemisphere
that will lead to a world congress.
There are the two most hopeful sources
of that great proposal. It is the tradi
tion of British national conduct to be
commonDlace to the pitch of dullness,
and all the stifled Intelligence of Great
Britain will beat in vain against the
national passion for the ordinary. Brit
ain, in the guise of Sir Edward iirey,
will come to the congress like a lam
ily solicitor among the Gods. What is
the good of shamming about this least
heroic of Fatherlands? But Britain
would follow a lead: the family solici
tor is honest and well-meaning. -France
and Belgium and Italy are too deeply in
the affair, or without sufficient moral
prestige, for a revolutionary initiative
in international relationship.
There is, however, a possible third
source from which the proposal for a
world conerress might come, with the
suDOort of both neutrals and belliger
ents. and that is The Hague. Were
there a man of force and genius at The
Hacue now. a man speaking with au
thority and not as the scribes, he might
thrust enormous benefits upon me
It is from these three sources that I
most hope for leading now. Of the
new Pope and his influence I know
nothing. But in the present situation
of the world's affairs it behooves us
111 to wait idle until leaders clear the
way for us. Every man wno realizes
the broad conditions of the situation,
everyone who can talk or write or ecno,
can do his utmost to spread his realiza
iun nf th nnaflihilities of a world con
gress and the estabfishment of world
law and world peace that lie behind
the monstrous agonies and cruelties and
confusions of this catastrepnic year.
Given an immense body of opinion in
itiatives may break out effectively any
where; failing it, they will be fruitless

Mrs. Merle Heard Finds Period
of Unconsciousness.
Woman and Little Daughter Happy
. Two Days Alter Great Event and
Doctor Says Tliat Case Was
Extremely Obstinate.
Margaret Gail. 2-day-old daughter ot
Mrs. Merle Heard, stretched out her
chubby clutching fists luxuriously
after her batn early last night In the
way that babies have and snuggled
contentedly down to sleep In her bas
ket, as good-natured a child as one
would see in many a day.
Perhaps she was the more contented
because in giving her life her mother
did not face death by slow torture; for
Margaret Gail is a "twilight sleep"
baby. SHe first saw the light of day in
the home of Mrs. TV. E. Buckley.. 676
East Ankeny street, on Thursday.
Her mother, too, was in a contented
mood last night and talked of her
great adventure into the land of
dreams when her baby came.
She not only did not suffer patn, she
said, but she did not know anything of
what happened.
Mother Long Unconscious.
"From midnight Wednesday until
late afternoon of the following day,
for almost 15 hours, she was mercifully
unconscious. Yet the case was one of
the most obstinate that has come to
the professional attention of Mrs.
Buckley, a trained nurse of experi
ence. The physician, a well-known woman
doctor of the city, said:
"The case is interesting because
labor was difficult and on that account
I regard it as an especially good test
of the treatment. Mrs. Heard suf
fered no shock,' showing the absence
of pain, and there was no exhaustion
afterward, as is usual in cases of this
kind, where the "twilight sleep" method
is not used.
"f ler chart shows a temperature rang
ing from SS to 98.4 and a pulse of from
80 to 88 throughout the whole case.
The injection of scopolamin and nar
cotine, used in twilight sleep' cases,
began at midnight Wednesday and a
lesser quantity than is ordinarily
recommended was administered. An
ordinary anaesthetic usually follows.'
"I don't remember anything about it,"
said Mrs. Heard. "The last I remember
was about midnight Wednesday and 1
didn't wake up until almost 4-o'clock

Why Am I Offered This
"Ground Floor" Opportunity
Instead of the Wealthy
This question has been asked our representatives. There
are many reasons why it is better to have many small
investors instead of a few very large. We might say
here, however, that a few wealthy men are shareholders
with us. Also that there has never been any promotion
stock issued. Every share subscribed has been or is being
paid for. The capitalist has opportunity thrust upon him.
He is offered splendid propositions without number. Un
fortunately many times he is presented with stock in enter
prices 6imply to secure his name upon the books. Just
the fact that he has money brings him money. That it
takes money to make money is the fundamental back of
The Oregon Home Builders. But it is far more satisfac
tory to- have a large number of shareholders than a few
who could control and manipulate stock. The greatest
organizations and the greatest successes in the world have
been built upon this basis. Some institutions have tens
of thousands shareholders. 10,000 shares is all one per
son can own in this enterprise. That is only $2600 (at
present price.) It protects the small investor. This elim
ination of the control feature is not pleasing to capitalist.
It makes him share both earnings and power with small
investor. It is'nt that that The Oregon Home Build
ers does not offer a safe investment and good return that
