In size of attendance and interest shown it is said to have more than equaled any great national political convention ever held in this coun- try, and in brains to have far sur- passed any of them. There were present two defeated candidates for the presidency, eight cabinet offi- cers, ten United States senators, nineteen congressmen, four supreme court justices, twelve state chief justices, nine governors, twenty- seven multi-millionaires, thirty ta- bor leaders, eighteen college presi- dents, forty bishops, twenty super- intendents of state public schools and twenty-six noted women. It seems settled that the world peace movement has passed the senti- mental and initiatory stage, and is now one of practical politics. The United States, England and France will recolnmend the nex Hague conference to consider the disarma- ment of the nations. It is said that Emperor William of Germany is opposed to the discussion, but will look rather lonesome. A world's supreme court now exists; the next step, close at hand, is a world's par- liament or congress. Both at first will be'advisory, but well nigh om- nipotent. It will be a bold nation that will defy the decision of a world's congress. With a world's parliament meeting periodically, and not by special call, as now, a world's arbitration court to settle disputes, it will be difficult for a belligerent nation to disturb the peace, especially if an agreement to disarm is reached. It is conceded that Mr. Bryan filled a very large part in this congress. The feature he introduced and discussed was the wisdom of making money con- traband in time of war among neu- tral nations. It is as much a viola- tion of the peace principle for citi- zens of a neutral power to lend a nation at war with another nation money to carry on the struggle as to sell it arms and supplies which are now contraband. Disarmament was championed by Secretary Root, the world's congress by Baron d'Es- tournelles, a world's police system by Mr. Carnegie, and the preven- tion of loans for war by Mr. Bryan. All these ideals are likely to mate- riatize in stone form. Mr. Gompers was one of the foremost labor lead- ers. Labor protested against put- ting up laboring men to be shot by semi-barbarians in order to conquer a market for mills. lhe Northwestern Associa- tion This district association, consisting of sixty-eight churches, will hold its spring session in Monroe, May 7th and 8th. The state association is made up of five district associations, of which the Northwestern is proba- bly the largest. It Will be composed of a class of people whose acquaint- ance will be worth something to the town. It is doubtful if any one oppor- "sleep" a delegate or preacher Tues- day night, who have not yet been ap- proached on that subject, will do Mr. Richardson a kindness also. It is hoped that Monroe will do her- self proud by attending Tuesday's and Wednesday's sessions of the associa- tion at the Congregational church, and especially to the good things Tuesday evening.
