PLAN TO WILSON
to Suggest Organized
Attempt by Neutrals
AMERICA TO LEAD WAY
WASHINGTON, Sept. 2.
Cardinal Gibbons brought a message to
President Wilson today from Pope Bene
dict, suggesting arorsanlzeA attempt by
neutral nations to bring about peaco In
Europe. The Cardinal communicated tho
messago to tho President, who received
It with gratification. Later the Cardinal
saw Secretary Lansing and discussed
with him the message of tho Pope.
The conference between tho Cardinal
and tho President lasted only 10 min
utes. At Its conclusion tho Cardinal went
directly to tho State Department. As he
was leaving tho White House, he said:
"All that I can say at thla time Is that
I discussed the Question of trying to
arrange peaco between thewarrlng na
tions of Europe. Because of tho nature
of this discussion, it is impossible for me
to give any details at thla time. It Is
that his Holiness gave me a message to
be delivered to the President.
"The nature of that message, as every
thing that took placo In this conference,
must remain secret for the present.
"I expressed deep gratification to tho
President because of the jiappy ending
of the dllllcultles with Germany. I look
upon that as u happy outcome of what
was an extremely dangerous situation."
It was understood that the Pope's sug
gestion dealt with the advisability of
securing concerted actloirby-the Vatican
and the various neutral nations to offer
mediation to end the war.
Denial was made that .any of tha
belligerents liavo yet been roiisnlted. Tho
position of the Vatican, It n understood.
Is that tho war at the present time has
resolved Itself into a "stalemate" und that
none of the belligerents can win a de
In order to prevents the useless
slaughter of more millions, of men, the
Pope believes the time has arrived for
the neutrals to endeavor to arrange a
compromise. Today's1 message from tho
Pope is understood to be preliminary to
a general feeling. out of all neutrals.
According to Monslgnor Russell, tha
Vatican has been awaiting; the psycho
logical moment to swing; tho United
States Into Hue as tho leader in a gen
eral peace movement.
There was no doubt of the Cardinal's
earnest belief that If the President will
support thn Pope In a proffer of media
tion that it will be accentnblo. Iln In
known to bellevo that economlo as well I
a humanitarian reasons make this the
time for ntrong notion.
