New York, Jan. 24. "There was
peace without victory," at the end or
the olvll war, the New York World
said today, in lnterpertlng the presi
dent's senate speech of Monday.
Foreign editorial comment haa as
serted with emphasis that Lincoln
would not have listened to Wilson's
proposal.''' ' i . ; i i '
"The north completely crushed the
military power or the southern con
federacy," the World editorial aM.
"It made an end to slavery and se
cession, but It Imposed no conquer
ors terms upon the vanquished.
e The southern leaders were
restored to cltltenshtp without neiaa
or penalties."
"Peace without victory." the World
declares, "places no llmttatons up
on the extent or completeness of mll
Itary occupations, lout It emphatic
ally affirms that the terms of peace
ought not to (be dictated by the suc
cess of euch operations. A peace with
out victory does not Imply a war
without victory; hut K Implies that
a durable peace must be a peace of
Justice and humanity, not merely a
peace of tha sword." ;
The peace the president haa hi
mind does not mean that the alllea

mana invade England, If they can, the
