That's the best news the Trans-
a peace that will be lasting. They
want a workable arrangement that
will prevent future bloody and des-
It is a noble ambition—"a con-
sumation devoutly to be wished".
They plan for a league of nations
to supplant the old "balance of
power" idea, which I think is a
long stride in the right direction.
An international court of arbitra-
tion with an international police
force, while they may never be
able to exercise the absolute au-
thority over the members of this
leatrue that a national court and
army exercises over the individual
states of a nation or that a state
court and police exercises over in-
dividuals, can no doubt bring to
boar a tremendous pressure on any
nation or ruler that wants to start
trouble. I am strong for the
league of nations. I am not knock-
ing on President Wilson's efforts
in that line, even if I am a Repub-
lican und Mr. Wilson a Democrat.
I believe Mr. Wilson can, and will
succeed, measurably at least. But
there is one thing else that can be
done, I think, that will be more ef-
fective in preventing future wars
than even the league of nations. It
is repressive and punitive rather
than constructive, but a certain
amount of that kind of action,
dwstic medicine or surgery or
whatever you may call it, is still
perhaps necessary to the peace
aid safety of the world. I refer
to the punishment of the instiga-
tors and ringleaders of this great
world trouble; the men who plan-
ts and started this great blood
aad destructive war.
There is not much chicken steal-
img in this country since we sent
some men to the penitentiary for
stealing chickens. When 0ne man
kffls another up in Canada the
only way to escape being hung is
to get off the planet. As no one
i as succeeded in getting off the
planet in the flesh since the days
of Christ, Elijah and Enoch, the
• ■rderers in Canada all get hung.
