ponderating armaments are henceforth
to continue here and there to be built
up and maintained. The statesmen of'
the world must plan for peace and
nations must adjust and accommodate'
their policy to it as they have planned'
for war and made ready for pitiless'
conquest and rivalry.
"The question of armaments, wheth-
er on land or sea, is the most im-
mediate and intensely practical ques-
tion connected with the future fortunes'
of nations of mankind.
"I have spoken upon these great
matters without reserve and with the'
utmost explicitness because it has'
seemed to me to be necessary if the
world's yearning desire for peace was
anywhere to find free voice and utter-
ance. Perhaps I am the only person
in high authority amongst all the peo-
ples of the world who is at liberty to
speak and hold nothing back. I amI
speaking as an individual and yet It
am speaking also, of course, as the re-
sponsible head of a great government,
and I feel confident that I have said
what the people of the United States
would wisn me to say.
Speaks for Humanity.
"May I not add that I hope and be-I
lieve that I am in effect speaking for
liberals and friends of humanity in1
every nation and of every program of1
liberty? I would fain believe that I1
am speaking for the silent mass ofI
mankind everywhere who have as yet
had no place or opportunity to speak1
their real hearts out concerning the
death and ruin they see to have come
already upon the persons and the
homes they hold most dear.
"And in holding out the expectation
that the people and government of the
United States will join the other civil-
ized nations of the world in guaran-
teeing the permanence of peace uponi
such terms as I have named, I speak
with the greatest boldness and confi-
dence, because it is clear to every
man who can think that there is in
this promise no breach in either our1
traditions or our policy as a nation,
but a fulfillment rather of all that we
have professed or striven for.
"I am proposing, as it were, that the
nations should with one accord adopt
the doctrine of President Monroe as,
the doctrine of the world; that no na-
tion should seek to extend its polity
over any other nation or people, but
that every people should be left free
to determine its own polity, its ownI
way of development, unhindered, un-
threatened, unafraid, the little along,
with the great and powerful.
Govern by Consent.
"I am proposing that all nations
henceforth avoid entangling alliances
which would draw them into com-
petitions of power, catch them in a
net of intrigue and selfish rivalry, and
disturb their own affairs with influ-
ences intruded from without. There3
is no entangling alliance in a concert
of power. When all unite to act in the
same sense and with the same pur-
pose, all act in the common interest
and are free to live their own lives
under a common protection.I
"I am proposing government by the
consent of the governed; tiat free-
dom of the seas, which in international
conference after conference, repre-
sentatives of the United States have
urged with the eloquence of those who
are the convinced disciples of liberty;
that in moderation of armaments'

power for order merely, not an instru-
ment of aggression or of selfish vio-
"These are American principles,
American policies. We could stand for
no others. And they are also prin-
ciples and policies of forward-looking
men and women everywhere and of
every modern nation, and of every en-

lightened community. They are the
principles of mankind and must pre-

Mack Keller and Anna Earl in their
act of original songs and patter are
the leading attraction in a rather
mediocre performance at the Majestic
this week. They received the hearty
applause of the audience.
A comedy sketch entitled "Sally's
Visit" was also well received, aided
no doubt, by the attractiveness of Miss
Grace Inman playing the part of Sally.
Billy Sunday has a rival in Lew
Hunting who seems to be able to take
any kind of fall in any sort of place.
Bonnie Gaylord and Iva Lancton,
known as the "corking girls," and the

pleted the program.
Stuart Walker Brings Back Spirit of
Play Believed Lost in Modern
Stuart Walker, former stage director
for David Belasco, will present a reper-
toire consisting of 14 dramatic repre-
sentations, in Ypsilanti, tomorrow
night in his Portmanteau Theater
which will be set up in the Pease audi-
torium under the auspices of the Ypsi-
lanti Players.
Mr. Walker has endeavored to bring
back the spirit of play which he be-
lieves to have been lost in the modern
theater. In order to do this he has
selected a company of 23 young men
and women of considerable experience,
who would rather work on his ideal
than take part in the average Broad-
way farce.
The plays to be given in Ypsilanti
include an adoption of Oscar Wilde's,
The Birthday of the Infanta," "Voices,'
an interlude in which Hortense Flex-
ner applies the Joan of Arc legend to
the present war in Europe, and "The
Gods of the Mountain," by Lord Dun-
say, the Irish soldier-dramatist.
Adelphil to Hold Elections Tonight

the fourth floor of University hall to
elect officers for the coming semester.
Final reports of the chairmen of the
various standing committees of the
house will be given at this time.
Cobb and Speaker Disagree Upon Golf
Cleveland, 0., Jan. 22.--Tris Speaker,
champion batter of the American
league, says that he owes no little of
his increased form last season to the
fact that he played golf at every op-
portunity. On the contrary, Ty Cobb,
his closest rival, passed up the game
entirely as he believed it was injuring
him. Take your choice.

Harrisburg, Pa., Jan. 22.-Pennsyl-
vania's legislature reassembled today
with the power of the so-called boss,
United States Senator Boies Penrose,
leader of the Republican organization

1904, in the balance. By electing
Richard J. Baldwin speaker of the
House three weeks ago Penrose men
defeated the opposition led by Gov-
erner Martin G. Brumbaugh and the
The speakership was only incidental
to the battle. The real struggle was
for control of the state organization
and control of next year's primaries,
when candidates are to be nominated
for governor, congress, the legislature.
Armed with the veto power, Governor
Brumbaugh may spoil enemy plans.
Penrose must get a two-thirds vote to
over-ride a veto.
Penrose lieutenants have been talk-
ing "investigation" and "impeachment"
of the governor. Declarations that he
will be "Sulzerized" have been made
more or less openly. Assemblyman
Isadore Stern, of Philadelphia, has re-
peatedly declared he will introduce
impeachment proceedings.
More than 84,296 French soldiers
have received Lafayette kits from the
Lafayette fund organization which has
its headquarters at the Vanderbilt

The kits consist of one pair of fleece
lined drawers and shirt, a pair of wool-
en socks, handkerchief, cake of soap,
pipe, note paper, pencil, an can of
cretol ointment and an army poncho.
The total cost of the kit is $2.00.
