It is not for us to dictate or to preach to nations, but If the United States and Great Britain renounce war a step will be taken of Immeasurable and Incomparable significance in onward progress of humanity." MOTION INTRODUCED. Mr. Asquith theri moved the following resolution: "That this meeting of citizens of London, assembled in the Guild cordially welcomes the proposal of the United Stales in favor of a general treaty of arbitration between that country and the British empire, and pledges Its support to the.

principles of such a treaty as serving the highest interests of the two nations and -as tending to promote the peace of the world." There was tremendous applause, which continued until Mr. Balfour arose to second the resolution. The opposition leader said that Anglo-American arbitration seemed nearer to fruition at this moment than ever before. Some, he faid, regarded it as an Idealistic dream and believed that when the clash of conflicting interests came all paper barriers would be swept away, nd, he continued: 'v Tt is true; that it Is folly ti make International laxy go. far lh advance of pub- lie opinion.
