Those who saw the near approach

of an international court,

due to the rapid progress of peace

sentiment since the First

Hague Conference were too

optimistic. It was too

much for us to expect that

in fifteen years, from 1899

to 1914, the whole military

fabric of the nations of the

world should be destroyed,

a fabric which has been in 

a process of weaving from 

the beginning of recorded

time. But this is our great

disappointment that we had

built such high hopes only to

have them overthrown. But let

us abate not one whit our efforts

to teach the horrors, the injustice,

the wrong of war. In this way
