Aloofness is held impossible London it is impossible for the to United states to stand aside from the affairs of Europe and Asia the daily express declared today in discussing the Repin i in National convention Ai Chicago. ¥7 following in Brief is Tho Tost of Tho platform planks stating a Tho position of Tho Republican party on Tho gooral foreign policy of Tho nation and Tho league of nations and peace treaty we favor a Liberal and generous foreign policy founded upon definite moral and political principles characterized by Clear understanding of and firm adherence to our own rights and unfailing respect for the rights of others. We should afford full and adequate Protection for the life Liberty and property and All International rights of every american citizen and should require a proper respect for the american Flag but we should be equally careful to Manifest a just regard for the rights of other nations. A scrupulous Observance of our International engagements when lawfully assumed is essential to our own Honor and self respect and the respect of other nations. Subject to a due regard for International obligations we should leave our country free to develop its civilization along lines most conducive to the welfare and happiness of the people and to cast its influence on the Side of Justice and right should occasion require. The Republican party stands for agreement among the nations who preserve the peace of the world. We believe such an International association must be based upon International Justice and must provide methods which shall maintain the Rule of Public right by the decision of impartial courts and which shall secure instant and general International conference whenever peace shall be threatened so that the nations pledged to do and insist upon what is just and fair May exercise their influence and Power for the prevention of the War. We believe that All this can be done without the Compromise of National Independence without depriving the people of the United states in Advance of the right to determine for themselves what is just and fair when the occasion arises and without involving them As participants and not As peacemakers in a multitude of quarrels the merits of which they Are unable to judge.
