(Copyright. 1915, by fhe New York Times company. Copyrighted in Great Britain and Iretana.; CONCLUDING ARTICLE. 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, stiu capable 01 recuperation and of renewal at no very remote date of th struggle for European predominance, convention which in 1884 framed tne constitution of the state: a member of th I.ea-islature: a District Judge and a Justice of the Supreme Court of M nntana. 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. GERMANS REGRET ERROR HOSPITAL SHIP, ITNILLUMINATED, MISTAKEN FOR TRANSPORT. 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. OFFICIALS HAVE TO PAY 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. BRITAIN'S TRADE SHRINKS 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, 500.000. In exports, the decrease was mainly In manufactured articles and of this $17,500,000 was in cotton textiles. 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 direction. 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 war. 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 world. 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 everywhere. 1- v 0 9 " 01 Double Stamps All Day Today C. V.

Wbodard, Clarke & Co, Alder at West Park LIGHT BABY BORN Mrs. Merle Heard Finds Period of Unconsciousness. ORDEAL WITHOUT SHOCK 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 Thursday." yhe said she felt well and her ap pearance bore out her statement. Mrs. Heard lives at East Plxth and tavi Why Am I Offered This "Ground Floor" Opportunity Instead of the Wealthy Capitalist? 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 keeps the capitalist from crowding in. It is that he can use his own money (and yours if you will loan it at small interest) and earn original profits without letting you in. It takes volume, and by investing with us your money has as large earning power as the largest capitalist. In vestigate our Home Building, architectural plan, and other profit sources.

The method known as the "twilight sleep," explained the physician, has come Into prominence through magazine articles telling of its successful use at Freiberg, Germany. It was not origin ated by the Freiberg doctors, however, but has been used before, she said. She herself has had two cases in this city, but as they were not such difficult ones as her last, she does not regard them as being so valuable as a test of the merits of the method. She said that quiet Is essential while the mother Is under the influence of the drugs, or she will awaken. The patient must be kept on the border line of consciousness.
