Al-�thougli the address was punctuated ernment of Great Hrltain. There is -lo confusion of counsel among the adver saries ot the central powers, no uncer tainfy ot principle, no vagueness of detail. The only secrecy of conditions, the only lack ot tearless frankness, the oiity failure to make definite st'ate-mentot the objects of the war, lies with Germany and her allies.

No statesman who has the dent declared Fr.ance must have right j least conception of his responsibility for wrong in Alsace-Lorraine. At that ' the entire assembly rose, applauded and cheered loudl.v. Leaders-and rank and file joined in expressions of approval with few res-'ervations. It was the general opinion in congress that the presideni's address had posibilitics of hastening peace, and influencing the Russiai\ negotiations, while at the same time concretely giving peace terms and endorsing Lloyd IJeorgo's statements. Chairman Stone ot the senate foreign relations committee declared he .was /n full agreement with the prcsi-"dent.-while other senators referred to tho' address as "the best thing the president has doile." and" his greatest ; julrf "alV buVhelplcVs.
