Throughout Sunday, January 21,
thousands of persons flocked to East
London (England) hoping to satisfy
their curiosity as to the effect of an
explosion in the munitions factory
there. None of them, however, was
able to obtain a near view ef the
scene, owing to rigid police regula
tions, and could only wander through
the outlying streets where most of the
windows were shattered by the con
cussion. Newspaper reporters who were al
lowed to approach near the scene of
the explosion in London describe what
was formerly the site of the explosive
store as a hole a hundred yards across
and eighty feet deep with masses of
earth, iron and all sorts of wreckage
covering an area of about six acres
around the hole.
On the whole, anent the explosions
in East London, one is struck by the
number of people killed. Judging
from the fact that most of the fac

known proportion of casualties in cer

death roll will exceed 300.

LEAGUE FOR PEACE
MAKE MONROE DOCTRINE WORLD
DOCTRINE, SAYS PRESIDENT
IN ADDRESS TO SENATE.
APPEARS BEFORE -SENATE
Discusses Nation's Foreign Relations.
Declares That Lasting Peace in
Europe Cannot Be a Victory For
Washington. Whether the United
States shall enter a world peace
league and, as many contend, thereby
abandon its traditional policy of isola
tion and no entangling alliances was
laid squarely before Congress and the,
country by President Wilson in a per
sonal address to the senate.
For the first time in more than a
hundred years, a President of the
United States appeared in the senate
chamber to discuss the nation's for
eign relations after the manner of
Washington, Adams and Madison. The
effect was to leave congress, all official
quarters and the foreign diplomats
amazed and bewildered. Immediately,
there arose a sharp division of opinion
over the propriety as well as the sub
stance of the President's proposal.
"Startling," "staggering," "astound
ing," "the noblest utterance that has
fallen from human lips since the Dec
laration of Independence" were among
the expressions of senators. The
President, himself, after his address,
"I have said what everybody has
been longing for and has thought im
possible. Now it appears to be pos
sible." The chief points of the Presi
dent's address were'-
That a lasting peace in Eu
rope cannot be a peace of victory
for either side.
That peace must be followed
by a definite concert of power to
assure the world that no catas
trophe of war shall overwhelm it
That in such a concert of pow
ers, the United States cannot
withhold its participation to guar
antee peace and justice through
out the world.
And that before a peace is made
the United States Government
should frankly formulate the con
ditions upon which it would feel
justified in asking the American
people for their formal and solemn
"It is clear to every man who
thinks," the President told the senate,
"that there is in this promise no
breach in either our traditions and our
policy as a nation, but a fulfillment
rather of all that we have professed or
President Wilson's address was sent
to American diplomats in the bellig
erent countries last Monday, two days
before the United States received the
note from Minister Balfour, of the
British Foreign Office, supplementing
the Entente reply to his peace note,
and on the same day that German
Foreign Minister Zimmerman declared
it was impossible for the Central Pow
ers to openly lay down their terms.
The President's address was inrtnd
ed as an open message to the world
of the conditions under which he
would urge the United States to enter
a world federation to guarantee future
peace. There is nothing in the ad
Sress or in the instructions accompany
ing its presentation that will of ifseTT
necessitate an answer, according to
the Administration view but some re
sponse nevertheless is expected from
both groups of belligerents.
Fear of a "leak" surrounded the
sending of the address abroad with
such secrecy as has seldom been
equalled in the State Department.
Only President Wilson, Secretary Lan
sing and the men who transmitted it
are known definitely . to have been
aware of it.
While the President was speaking,
copies of his address had been for
warded to belligerent countries for the
information of the foreign offices, and
were being prepared for representa
tives of neutral Government here.

Washington. More than 25,000 Na

jor General Funston for return home
and muster out of the Federal service,

ed homeward as soon as transportation
facilities can be provided. Their de

50,000 men of the guard still in the
Federal servicedoing border patrol.
War Department officials continue
to withhold comment on reports that
the movement of General PershLag's
regulars out of Mexico soon will be
under way, and the statement an
nouncing the guardsmen designated
for relief does not connect these or
ders with the withdrawal plans in
any way. The understanding has
been, however, that with the return
of the expedition in Mexico, and re
adjustment of the border patrol, all

The department's statement said:
"General Funston has selected these
organizations chiefly in accordance
with the rule of returning first those
troops longest in service on the bor
der. To some extent, however, this
rule could not be followed without
unequal weakening of the border
guard, and the departures from it are
so explained. The total strength of

Durham. Gen. Julian S. Carr, who
was commissioned by Governor Locke
Craig as agent for the people of North

monument on the summit of Blue
Ridge Mountains in memory of Dr.
Elisha Mitchell, has proached his pre
tentious plans for the ineeption of this
national movement. The monument of
granite to be a replica of the Wash
ington memorial will necessitate the
expenditure of $151,000. The multiple
.agencies and institutions which the
life of the scientist, minister and edu
cator touche will be solicited to sub
scribe $101,000 and' the state and na
tional governments joinly $50,600.
Opportunities for contributions will
be extended to every individual and
institution but the campaign at once
takes on a systematic appeal. TeD
grouped organizations will be solicited
in the. aggregate with definite sums
The University of North Carolina
and the twelve colleges of the state,
$10,000; the boys and girls of the
state through the agencies of public
and private schools, $10,000; colored
children of North Carolina will donate'
$1,000; alumni of Yale University (Dr.
Mitchell's alma mater), $10,000; the
American Association of Scientists
10,000 in number $10,000; churches
North and South especially the Pres
byterian church in which Dr. Mitchell
was elder and minister, $10,000 ; West
ern North Carolina through the offices
of public spirited citizens, counties and
cities, $10,000; railways, hotels, vis
itors and tourists, $10,000; other pa
triotic and generous citizens, $20,000.
The total aggregates $101,000.
The nation-wide appeal of General
Carr, with particular reference to the
people of North Carolina, emphasizes
the magnitude of the undertaking and
the worthiness of the cause. The let
ter says in part:
"Impelled by a sense of duty 'and
Jeep feeling of pride in everything that
concerns the honor and presperity of
our state, I have accepted from Gov
ernor Craig a commission to act as
agent for the people of North Carolina
in erecting on the summit of the Blue
Ridge Mountains a suitable monument
In memory of Dr. Elisha Mitchell.
"It is proposed to protect the grave
by a handsome covering of granite or
marble; and to erect nearby, on land
belonging to the state, a replica of the
Washington monument. Nothing short
of this would be worthy of the state,
the mountain, and the great man. who
gave his. life to its exploration and
"An unlimited supply of granite, al
ready at hand on the summit of the
mountain, will reduce the cost to half
what ft otherwise would be. Still, the
enterprise is gigantic; and it will re
quire at least $150,000 possibly more.
"The people of North Carolina are
equal to this great achievement. Dr.
Mitchell gave them forty years of his
life in active, unremitting educational
and scientific work. His name is en
rolled high in the list of American
icientists, teachers and discoverers. He
was also a minister of the Presbyterian

by philanthropic public service, as well
as by countless good deeds in private.

"Nothing can beat this," says a
French journal, commenting on an ar
ticle published by the Austrians in a
little paper in Montenegro called the
News of Cetinje. The little paper notes
that on Mount Lovcerr will be erected
a colossal monument to recall to future
generations the conquest by the Aus
trian armies of this Gibraltar of the
Adriatic. The sketch of this work,
presented to the Emperor Francis Jo
seph but a short time before his death
by the artist, was approved by the
aged ruler. It represents the Spirit of
Victory. Its enormous hands are
crossed upon a gigantic sword and it
looks toward a horizon "beyond which
now trembles the traitress Italy."
