" ' INTERNATIONAL PEACE
Plana to 8cura It Hav Bmi Triad
For Thm Canturlaa.
Admirable and farslghted plans for
Securing a peaceful International order
hare been before the world for SOO
years. M. Emcrlc Cruce submitted his
plan, which Included liberty of com
tnerco throughout all the world, as
early as 1C23. Following the peace of
Utrecht, the Abbe de St Pierre devel
oped his plan, which Included media
tion, arbitration and an Interesting ad
dition to the effect that any sovereign
who took up arms before the union of
nations had declared war or who re
fused to execute a regulation of the
Union or a judgment of the senate was
to be declared an enemy of Eurotean
Society. The union was then to make
War upon him until he should be dis
armed or until the regulaUon or judg
ment should be executed.
Some twenty years earlier William
Penn had produced his quaint and real,
ly extraordinary plan for the peace of
Europe, In which he, too, proposed to
proceed by military power against any
Sovereign who refused to submit bis
cfotm to a proposed diet, or parlia
ment, of Europe or who refused to
abide by and to perform any judgment
of such a body.
All these plans, like those of Rous
seau, Bentham and Kant, which came
later, as well as Wllflam Ladd's elab
orate and carefully considered essay
on a congress of nations, published In
1840, were brought into the world too
soon. They were the fine and noblo
flreams of seers which It Is taking civ
Ulzed men three centuries and more to
begin effectively to realize. New .York

W. O. W. Notice. ; Re
How He Won a Lease of Llfs For 8oma
of Villa' Victims.
During one of his earlier campaigns
Francisco Villa had an American
movie photographer, Burrud by name,
attached to his staff, who spent a
good deal of his time taking pictures
of the excessively vain "general'' him
self. Sometimes, however, Burrud was
called upon to undertake more stren
uous operations. The following story,
for Instance, Is told In Francis A. Col
lins' "The Camera Man:"
"Burrud was called outdoors unex
pectedly at .sunrise one morning and
directed to report, with tils camera, at
once to headquarters. When he nrrlv
ed.'coatless and breafcfastless, before
Villa's tent he was' told that the gen
eral had decided to have some twenty
prisoners shot and wanted a moving
picture takeu of (the execution. Tho
prisoners, most of them political mere
ly, were to be butchered to make n
moving picture scene.
"Burrud felgued to examine his cam
era closely and then explained to the
general that his films were bad and
that it would be Impossible to take the
picture until a new supply had arrived.
Villa was disgusted to miss the enter
tainment, but the camera man Insisted
that there was no uso in making the
exposure, and the picture and tho ex
ecution were put off several days.
"By the time the next supply of films
arrived the general hod fortunately
changed hla mind and the men were
Electricity and Coal Watte.
From coal we chiefly draw the sun's
stored energy, which Is required to
meet our Industrial and commercial
needs. According to statistical records,
the output In the United States during
an average year Is 40,000,000 tons. In
perfect engines this fuel would be suf
ficient to develop 500,000,000 horsepow
er steadily for one year, but the squan
dering la bo reckless that we do not get
more than D per cent of its heating
value on the average. A comprehen
slve electrical plan for mining, trans
porting and using coal could much re
duce this appalling waste. What Is
more, inferior grades, billions of tons
of which are being thrown away, might
be turned to profitable use. Nikola
