The traditional.Christian always reeked with peace, andi. tho actual Christians have, for the'most part, been active and successful fight- ers.

The peace prospects of world can be very simply stated. They depend :upon the prevailing attitude of the human mind toward properly and righteous- ness- Righteousness ifirsb-'meaus .good peace first, means lots more "tvars. If vou think, tbat out of its abundant experience mankind is getting to feel that, after, perty is only the tail, of the dog, then you hopefulof w'orld peace, but if. you: think tbat i in spite; of oil that happens, and ail the saints, and a'tl the gun factories and all the print- _ er's Ink, mankind is still of the opin- I ion that property Is the dog and right- eousness merely the, of, your expectation of '.sVOrld' peace must be faiat. Everybody is -prone to dveKalue" iroperty; people do it, nations do it; lardly anyone is blameless'except a ew tramps .and; impractical pe'ople. But some people and some nations, are much Iwo'rse' about It than others. The ;reat quarrel that .the. rest ..of Chris- :endom has just, now Ger- mans is that-beypnd'aH people >'ho are bad" enough) put property .first and- planned to -have righteousness for the mere tall of their dog. Is It not enough to say that that was bad in the Germans; it is import, ant to notice how stupid it was..' The Germans, were fast getting possession, of the earth. Every good dog in En rspe, hot to speak of America, was fili- ng .up With German fleas and they wore all fattening. But 'deep, in the German mind was the sentiment that robbery is' not robbery when Ger- mans steal for Germany; the 3erman mind was the sentiment that to get by force is as good a way as any. So, having got by industry wbat was to be had, Germany felt that the :ime was ripe to supplement her gains by force. Then the war, and all" its de. tails. But as exposed, by the war, Ger- many is all for Germany. Not an-ounce of her battle: reaches for any other creature Under the sun but for the German, She has published her.creed first, Righteousness at We have all seen -the document sealed with blood-of Bel- glum. We have all accepted notice that Germanyl.Is for Germany, proper- ty first, and ail of us; who are not Germans admit that Germany on her present basis is ot all the nations the most powerful enemy of peace. Of course, the end of the war Is not yet, and we shall see what we shall see. But never war showed' clearer than this one what makes for wars on earth. Never war showed. clearer that there, will always bV wars as long as there are nations who put roperty before righteousness and arm back their choice. If Germany in this war It means wars to If-Germany's by uniting all the more clvllizeJ nations against her, ' her defeat, It will be at least in Indication that Christendom in our day begins to appreciate that right- eousness must ilftriliqate property, and that through this ft'6tes of Justice runs the only road to peace.
