PAGE EIGHT BLYTIIEVILLR (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1939 Peace Palace At Hague Strange Role For Man Whose Coronation Was Bloody Event EDITOR'S NOTE: Armlsliu Day, 1939, ivill fliul (he armlts of furope again on llic iKiUlt* frciil, aiiollifr setback In tlic lun£, precarious movement toward world peace. Here is n stoiy CH the men wlio set down mtloaoues lo mark the larger sln:£gle ffir peace instead »f war. * » * UV VVIl.US THORNTON -N'KA Service Slaff Correspondent Strangest of men to be portray- cd as a peacemaker, is Nicholas II, Czar of All the Russlas, who led his own people into two disastrous and bloody : wars. Nicholas' very coronalion was an nuitury of blood, for 3000 people trampled cadi oilier lo death at the ceremony. " Yet Ihe mild nnd simple Nicholas, whose own lite was to be snuffed out by rifle builds In a cellar at Ekaterinburg, was a man who wauled peace, and who, according to his lights, sought, pence. It was he who culled Ihc first modern international conference attended by representatives of governments themselves seeking world peace. If was his imperial icscript of Aug. 24, 1898, which summcned the conference that met at. the Hague In May of the following year. I'OUGHT liUKOKN OX BACKS W 1'EOl'l.i: The very summons Itself caused a tremendous sensation, for the Czar, Ihe Krratcst autocrat of his day, denounced war in round terms as a destroyer of civilization nnd Ihc cause of an intolerable armament burden on Ihe backs of Ihc people. The Hague conferences were a ulep - forward ' in International affairs. Peace societies had grown by leaps and bounds throughout Hie 19th century in ihc United Slate?, Britain, France, and Germany. From 18-13' until the World War Interrupted them, n scries of almost annual peace conferences were held in various wcrld capl- lals. These were, however, private .organizations whose nlm was lo , put pressure on governments for is peace The Hagvie meeting of 189D v ' conference of representatives of governments direct. Further, there not a single cloud cf wnr ir the sky when the conference ns- STsembled, .which was a novelty h £: peace conferences. 5j HOPES WEUF. CHEAT, ' RESULTS iillNOK Twenty-six countries were rep resented. The actiml results wen meager enough, considering tin tremendous sensation the confer ence made, and (he high hope it lifted. ,up before the world. There, was -a.'pious resolution condemning the accelcralini; arms race. There wns another resolution opening wider the door to arbitration ,and providing that any government might otfer medi- atlcn during n war without the act being conslrued as unfriendly. It provided for Commissions of Enquiry, with' neutrnls ns members, to sellle peacefully disputes be tween countries. Most important, a Court of International Arbitration was established at The" Hague, Which was lo met and hear cases whenever any country would submit them. Though this rends oddly 40 years later, The Hague conference adopted declarations against dumdum biulels ,gos shells, and projectiles dropped from balloons. The airplane as a major, perhaps, dominant, war weapon could not be foreseen. The Wright brothers night was still years in the future. COUKT SUCCKEns IN SOME CASES Even Ihls sketchy court of arbi- trallcn, without permanent status or power lo enforce Us decisions, settled 14 cases before the World War came in 1911 Nicholas had already led his people into one wnr—Ihe beating at the hands of Japan—before he called the second Hague conference in 1907.

At the second Hague conference, countries were rcpescnted x - Port* uguese proposals for compulsory arbitration were blocked, principally by Germany. Disarmament, proved too hot lo handle, producing only another pious resolution. The clement of hone, however, came froin the setting of another conference for 1915, this lime not nt the Czar's call, but at the call of the second conference, thus making it a Inily tntcrnnllonnl undertaking.
