manent member of the committee t
imnarial defense: Sir Richard Oarton,
great London banker, and Norman An-
salt -r 1 -. 'Vi";y""'.
Today, tnrougn tne meaiiun m ifo-
turee, international politgr . club and
study circles, the ideas are permeating
the publto mind of England and reach
ing out to Germany, France and other
European countrlea. It Is to promulgate
these t vlewa .that . Mr. Langdon-Davies
has com t our country.. .......
Xrmoaa Armaments Bulanua.
His . message Is thla: ; Th civilised
nations of the earth are today ruining
themaelve with their enormous armies
and navies. In Europe, as In America,
the burden of taxation is ever oa the In
crease, and the mass of that taxation Is
for- war, and the munitions ox war,
neither of which will benefit the 11 ves
of the peoples. All sane men who think
are aarreed so far.
Hitherto there have been two sets Of
proposals for solving the difficulty.
Either th nation- must arm. in accord
anee with the militarist Idea, cr it must
follow the old plan of the older pacific
ists, who teach the doctrine of brotherly
love.
The new plan accepts neither of these
two positions although it recognises th
good points contained In the old pacific
ist plan. It presents the conception of
a new pacificism, and It 1 thlt 'War
is Billy, and. armaments' are ailly, be
cause y today civilised nations cannot
reach by them the objects for which
they go to war." It then sets cut. to
prove on a purely eoonomlo basis and in
a purely logical manner thatlwar da-
feats ts -own purpose. , Mr. Langdon-
Danes nas epitomised u thus: y r
WTiy Defense Is trnnooessary.
"All nations of the world ate arming.
and all assert that they are arming in
self-defense. Defense Is unneceaaary,
unless some on la going to attack. No
one will attack, unless he has a motive
for attack. The only possible motive is
the desire to reap the fruits of con
quest-:' It can be demonstrated that as
between 1 civilized natlona today, there
can be no fruits of conquest that in th
twentieth oentury that it 1 a harvest
that cannot be reaped, v .- . .
. "If that faot can be ahown blearlv to
Jhe putllo mind' of all nations, then
presto! the motive for attack, the need
for defense, the burden of armaments,
tha dangers of war Will have vanished.
and th stag will be dear for coopera
tion, ror tn arbitration of disputes, for

the .mysterious forces which . spread

ramiiy of mankind. . , ; -' -
"The. new pacificists cay th Interna
tlonal policy today Is almost Invariably
based Upon Illusions. Illusion - whioh
are evidenced1 by such false notions as
that colonies are owned and can, there
fore, be captured, that by annexing pop
ulated , territory,' the annexing nation
gains, that armaments 1 guarantee to
make trade, that war preserves a virile
race, that war can be made to pay by
the exaction of tribute of Indemnity.
Every one of these propositions the new
pacificists deny, and are prepared to
bring conelualv proof against them."
