THE PEACE TERMS. There has been much comment and criticism during the past few months with regard to the time taken by the Peace Conference in settling the terms of peace to be imposed on Germuny. A glance at a summary of the fifteen sections of the treaty should be sufficient to convince any- one of the innumerable and infinite variety of Intricate problems which had to be solved by the Allied statesmen. Such a drastic recasting of national boundaries and world politics, with so many conflicting interests involved, was bound to take a considerable time, and though it was Perhaps natural that there should be some im- patience at the prolonged deliberations and conversations, the future of Europe and the world demanded that no hasty conclusions should be come to. The terms of the treaty, as might have been expected, have evoked a whining chorus in certain quarters in Germany, but, drastic though the terms may appear to some, they are no more drastic than the circumstances Warranted, and not half so drastic as Germany would have imposed had she won. We know that, from the boastful intentions proclaimed by German leaders when they thought the success of their arms was assured. Even though Ger- many meets the Allied demands to the uttermost farthing she will never expiate her crime. The Upheaval caused by the designs of German militarism, even though those designs were un- successful, have had a detrimental effect on all countries which will in many respects probably be permanent. No indemnity that Germany can pay will relieve this and future generations in Great Britain and the Allied countries of the great burden of debt. We in Great Britain will for years to come have a serious task to face in meeting our financial obligations. Every house- hold has been affected by Germany's unutterable crime. Many have suffered bereavement which untold money cannot replace all have felt the oppression of the upheaval of the money market and the permanent establishment of high prices, with the consequent unrest among millions of people. For all this we have to thank Germany, and though we have won the war and are able to dictate terms we shall for many years to come have many evidences to remind us that the War has cost us dear. There may be many criticisms of details with regard to the peace treaty, but the most important point on which assurance is desired is that the means of en- enforcing the terms and of making the League of Nations effective will be adequate to the purpose. 4. —
