From these gentle slopes they looked upon thg world- and saw it whole, saw it with tho light of the' future upon it, saw it with the modern eyes that turned away from a past which men ot liberated spirits" could no longer endure. It Is tor that reason that wc cannot fool, oven here, in tho immediate presence of this sacred tomb, that this was a place of death. It was a place ot achievement. "It has been loft tor us> to see to it that it shall bo understood that they spoke and acted, not for a single people only, but for all mankind. "We are happy in the tliought that wo are permitted to do what they would have done had they been in our place. There must now be settled once for all what was settled for Am-ftricn in the great age upon whose inspiration we dr.-tw tod.iy. This Is Bui-ely a fitting place from which calmly to look upon our task, that we may fortify our spirits for its accomplishment. And this is the appropriate place from which to avow, alike to tho friends who look on and to the friends with whom wo have the happiness to be associated in action, the faith and purpose tor which we act. "This, then, is our conception ot tho great struggle in wiiich wo are engaged. The plot is written plain upon every scene and every act ot the supreme tragedy. On the one hand stand the peoples ot the world-not only the peoples actually engaged, but many others also who suffer under mastery but cannot act,- peoples ot many races and � in every part of the world-the people of stricken Russia still, among the rest, though they are for tho moment unorganized and helple?s. Opposed to them, masters ot many armies, stand an isolated, friendless group oi governments, who speak no common purpose but only selfish ambitions ot their own by which none car. profit but themselves and whose peoples are fuel in their hands, governments which fear their people and yet are for the time their sovereign lords, making every choice for them and disposing of their lives and fortunes as they will, as well as of the lives and fortunes of every people who fall under their power-governments clothed with the strange trappings and the primitive authority of an age that Is altogether alien and hos-til3 to our ovi-n. The past and present are in deadly grapple and the peoples of the world are being done to death between them. , One Issue, "There can be but oiie issue. The settlement must be final. There can be no compromise. No half-way deci-slbn Would be tolerable. No half-way decision is conceivable. These are the ends for which the associated peoples of the world are fighting and which must be conceded them before there can be peace: ' "1.
