TOO MUCH NOT ATTEMPTED
' Ex-President Says Growing I liter -;
est or Neutrals in Affairs Is
7 Ground for -Hope That As-
' tent May Be Given.
PHILADELPHIA. June 16. Ei-Pres-
- Ident Taft, in an address here tonight,
"outlined the plan for the proposed
League of Peace, which will be dis-
cussed "in Independence Hall tomorrow.
Mr. Taft was firmly of the opinion that
.a. league of peace could be formed
which would enable nations to avoid
-ar by furnishing a practical means
'for settling international quarrels or
' "suspending them until the blinding
heat of passion had cooled."
"In calling this meeting," Mr. Taft
7 said, "my associates and I have not
r been unaware that, we might be likened
to the tailors of Tooley street who mis-
took themselves for the people of
England. We wish to say that we do
: not represent anybody but ourselves.
Plans for Future Considered.
r "We are not here to suggest a
- means of bringing this war to an end
much as that Is to be desired and
- much as we would be willing to sacrl-
- f ice to secure peace that is not wlth
' , in the project of the present meeting.
"We hope and pray for peace, and
Tour hope of Its coming in the near fu
' ture Is sufficient to make us think that
'the present is a good time to discuss
and formulate a series of proposals to
which the assent of a number of the
, prreat powers could be secured. We
-think a league of peace could be formed
"which would enable nations to avoid
war by furnishing a practical means of
; settling international quarrels until the
t blinding heat of passion had cooled.
IVeutrals' Interest Increasing.
; "In no war has the direct interest
that neutrals have in preventing a war
- between neighbors been so clearly made
; known. This interest of neutrals has
been enforced upon them so that it
would require only a slight Jevelop
., nient and growth fn the law of inter-
national relations to develop that inter-
est to a right to be consulted before
i such a war among neighbors can be be-
t- "This step we hope to have taken by
I, the formation .of a peace league of the
great powers, "whose primary and fun
i damental principle shall be that no war
can take place between any two merri
i bers of the league until they resorted
J to the machinery that the league pro-
poses to furnish to settle the contro
t versy likely to lead to .war.
t "It any member refuses to use this
machinery and attacks another member
i of the league In breach of his league
? obligation, all members of the league
y agree to defend the members attacked
i by force.
i Resort to Force Not Omiltrd.
l "We do not thWik the ultimate resort
to force can be safely omitted from an
; effective league of peace. We sincere
ly hope that -it may never become
1 necessary and that the deterrent effect
cf its inevitable use In case of a breach
7 of the league obligation will help ma-
terially to give sanction to the laws of
I the league and to render a resort to
' force avoidable. 1
i "Now what is the machinery, a resort
to which we wish to force an intending
belligerent of the league? It consists
; of two tribunals, to one of which every
- issue must be submitted. Issues be,
l tween nations are of two classes.
' "First come issues that can -be de
cided on principles of international law
; and equity called Justiciable. Second
; are those which cannot be decided upon
I principles of law and equity but which
T might be quite aa irritating and pro
i vocation of war, called non-justiciable.
1 "We propose that for Justiciable ques
T tions we shall have an impartial court
i to which all questions arising between
members of the league shall be sub
Z jnitted. If the court finds the quea-
tion justiciable, it shall decide it. If
- it does not, it shall refer to a commls
i tlon of conciliation' to investigate,
confer, hear argument and compro-
"We do not propose to enforce com
pliance. either with the court's Judg-
roent or the conciliation commission's
- recommendation. We feel that we
ought not to attempt too much we be
; lieve that the forced submission and
the truce taken to Investigate the ju
' dicial decision or the conciliatory corn-
- promise recommended will form a ma
l terial inducement to peace. It will
- cool the heat of passion and will give
j the men of peace in each nation time to
; still the Jingoes. The league of peace
r will furnish a great opportunity for
more definite formulation of the prin-
ciples of international law. The ar-
bitral court will amplify it and enrich
" it in their application of its general
principles to particular cases. They
; will create a body of Judge-made law
; of the highest value.
"Then the existence of the league
' will lead to ever-recurring congresses
7 of the league, which, acting in a quasi
i legislative capacity, may widen the
; tscope of international law In a way
; that a court may not feel able or com
3 petent to do."
DURBAR SCENE ENACTED
fContlnued From First Pait.
lence, but farther north a section of
the horizon was roaring like a gi
gantic muffled snare drum.
There French guns hundreds of
French guns were busy firing
away aO the Germans works known
as the "labyrinth." There men
were being killed or wounded every
minute, bin those living, near the front
thought nothing of that. They are as
used to It as i3 everybody living in
the neighborhood of Niagara Falls to
Warm Sanxhine Bringrs Joy.
Joy was in the Indians' heart, the
Joy of a warming sunshine to' children
out of a Winter Icebox at last. The
Joy was shown Jn their dark eyes; it
glistened on their white -teeth and It
gleamed on the forest of their lances.
They were free of swaths, the cloth
ing which the King-Emperor had
supplied to them to keep out the
Flanders cold. Sunshine had oiled their
muscles under their bronze skins.
Broadway and Kansas in their dog
days would not be too hot for them.
This would be something like India
and home. Some white "sahibs" said
two months more July and August
which were warmer. sMll were com
ing. Those who had survived the trench
warfare were going to show how well
they had kept themselves through the
Winter. Particularly they were going
to show how well they had kept their
horses amid the mud and slush. As
with the Cossack, praise their horses
and you praise them.
Contrast and picturesqueness, if you
please, were In the trot of these East
erns, a bit out of the Durbar and Delhi
in an obscure corner of Northern
France, as they were reviewed by this
giant, fair-haired king, with drooping
straw-colored mustache, giving a
viking air. -
Groups of Indian officers in the
watching crowd rubbed elbows with
French peasants. The French of dif
ferent regiments after a gfeeting re
ferred to some comrade who had fallen
since they last met. Then the war and
its horrors were forgotten in the Brit
ish love of sport. An Indian, emitting
a fierce screaming yell, galloped down
the field and impaled a small wooden
peg stuck in the ground on his lance.
"Bravo," called the officers, as he
rushed by at top speed. Another In
dian tried the same thing and failed.
"Too bad." was heard, but there were
more "bravos" than "too bads" spoken
In the quiet way in which the British
show their emotions. These officers
were in India in spirit rather than in
France. They were the leaders who
had made soldiers out of the human
clay of the Bast, and had held them fast
in the face of German shells as a part
of the working of that extensive plant
called the British Empire.
When it came to demonstr&tiveness
the French were the real fans. Grand
father, mother and children -were hav
ing the time of their lives. It beat the
movies in town and there was nothing
to pay, either. They liked the way the
Indians yelL That made them seem
like sure-enough Indians. The British
cavalryman would only pick up a. peg.
He would not yell. -
As four riders, looking as wild as
any theatrical manager would desire,
came tearing down the field abreast,
their white teeth gleaming as they
uttered their screaming challenges,
picked up four of those bits of wood
at the same instant and waved . tbeir
lance heads aloft, a token of their suc
cess, to the king, one old Frenchman
"I wish it had been four Germans
they had speared in a charge."
It was a great day for the hard
worked French peasantry when, they
could see both the hard-worked King
of the Belgians and an Indian gymkana.
The roar kept coming from that dis
tant section of the horizon where the
steady hail of shells was eating its way
into the German trenches with the me;
chanical routine of steam shovels cut
ting into the side of a hill.

AMERICA TO MAKE
PEACE, SAYS BRYAN
Greatest Opportunity in All
History Declared Certain
to, Come in Time.
PATIENCE IS ENJOINED
Ex-Secretary ' Issues First Section
or Statement on .'Causeless'
War"; Change or' Kales of
WASHINGTON, June 16. Ex-Secre-taiy
Bryan, in the first section of his
statment on "The Causeless War." to
day prophesied that the greatest peace
making opportunity in all history was
certain to come to the United States.
He declared there would be a demand
f or an international conference with
the return of peace, to change the rules
of international law whieh 'seem to
have been made for tne nations at war
rather than for the nations at peace.'
Each Side Violates Neutral Rights.
"Under the stress and strain of the
Titanic struggle in which they are en
gaged." Mr. Bryan's statement says,
"each side has felt Itself Justified in
enroaching on the rights of neutrals.
The ocean highways, tne common prop
erty of all. have been to some extent
appropriated for war purposes and deli
cate diplomatic - questions are forced
upon the neutral nations.
"Just at this time, when these ques
tions are most acute, the belligerent
governments are least able to deal with
them with the calmness and poise
which their great Importance demands.
No wonder every neutral nation is in
creasingly anxious for the war to end.
but of all the neutral nations ours has
the most reason to pray for the return
of peace most reason to set Its face
resolutely against participation In this
war. This Nation, . the head, of the
neutral irrouD and the sincere friend
of all the belligerents, is in duty bound
to set an example In patience ana sen
restraint. Opportunity Awaits America.
"In. all history no such opportunity
has ever come to any other nation as
that which is destined to come to the
United States. In all history no other
peacemaker has ever been In position
to claim as rich a blessing as that
which will be pronounced upon our
President when he time for mediation
comes as come it must."
Introducing his statement, Mr. Bryan
graphically describes the horrors and
afflictions of war and says:
"Neutral nations cannot look on witn
Indifference the ties that,, bind them
together are too strong, the relation
ship too intimate. This is especially
true of the United states. we nave
a composite population every nation
of Europe having contributed liberally
to our citizenship. These, our country
men, themselves born abroad or im
mediately descended from foreign-born
ancestors, cannot but take a lively in
terest in the conduct,, as well as in
the results, of the war and a still
larger circle shares the concern of
those directly connected. Not a sol
dier falls on either side but the sor
row expressed in his homo finds an
echo at some fireside in the United
Problems Made More Difficult.
Aside from sentimental considerations.
Mr. Bryan asserts, neutral nations suf
the greatest embarrassments to the
"Nearly every neutral nation finds
new domestic problems thrust upon it
and old problems made more difficult,"
the statement declares. "No American
citizen can note without deep concern
the manner in' which the war ques
tions have Intruded themselves into
our politics overshadowing economic
issues are stimulating agitation In fa
vor of enlarged appropriations for'mlll
tary and naval purposes."
At some length, Mr. Bryan refers to
Interruptions of neutral commerce, de
rangement of business and consequent
ly readjustments. and speaks . of
scarcity of American ships as one of
the greatest embarrasnients to the
Rules Cannot A'oiv Be Changed.
"The neutral nations are put to a
great extent to preserve neutrality and
are constantly in danger of being em
broiled in the war without intention
or fault on their own part," he de
clared. "The rules of International law
seem to have been made for the na
tions at war, rather than for the na
tions at peace. It is almost Impossible
to alter these rules during the war,
because any material change, affecting
as It would the interests of the belli
gerents, would be a seeming violation
"As soon as peace returns, there will
be demand for an international con
ference on the subject. The presump
tion should then be given to peace, for
peace, not war, is the normal condition.
If nations are determined to fight, they
should, as far as possible, bear the
burden themselves and not be permitted
to transfer it to the nations which
would avoid war by resorting to rea
son instead of force."

as well as the 300 marines previously
