Should be Prepared to
In Address Before Lake Mohonk Con
ference on International Arbitra
tion, Wilson's Cabinet Adviser Calls
for Prompt Consideration of Matter
B(j Associated Press.
Mohonk Lake, X. V., May 20. —The
problem of armaments, whi.'h has
evoked more discussion than any other
question before the Lake Mohonk Con
ference on International Arbitration,
was brought to the front again to-day
by an address by Secretary of War Gar
rison. The Secretary's topic was "The
Problem of National Defense."
To deliver the a Idress he made a
hasty trip from Washington, using
train, automobile and buckboard to
reach this retreat in the Shawauguuk
mountains. Ho departed immediately
after speakiug so that he might reach
Washington in time for the Cabinet
Mr. Garrison's address was not as
pronounced as that delivered yesterday
bv President Hibben, of Princeton,
along somewhat similar lines, but he
left no doubt of the tact that he fa
vored strengthening tile national de
defenses and making the United States
ready to protect itself from any aud all
Isolation Geographical Duty
"I am utterly out of sympathy." he
declared, "with the idea that we should
neglect or postpone consideration of
what is now trie existing condition, be
cause of a hope or a belief or even
conviction that it may be aitered, even
radically altered in the future.
"Our isolation,'' h© continued, "is
geographical only. Modern conditions
have caused the interests of nations to
be as co-related as those of families
who have intermarried. Interests of
many of the large nations to-day are in
extricably interwoven with those of
tome or all of the others.
"Self respect requires that we should
be prepared to protect that which we
cherish, which not only includes our
material possession but that intangible
something which makes us a distinctive
nation in the eyes of the world." ,
The Great Curse of War
"The roots of war," were discussed
in paper by Oscar S. Straus," of New
York, formerly minister to Turkey. Mr.
Straus was unexpectedly called home
yesterday but his paper was read by
••One of the great curses of war,"
he said, "is that it settles by force and
what is settled by force is seldom if
ever, settled .justly. And because such
a settlement is not just it leaves be
hind it the teeth of future confiiet."
"A potent root of war," he con
tinued, "was that while the standards
of morals within the several nations
have advanced with civilization, regu
lated by law. by equity and justice, in
ternational relationship has developed
under entirely different standards by
expediency and by might. The results
lias been and is that the standard of
international right is not only on a low
er scale but often in contradiction to
the ideals of justice."

Assisted By Mr. Majeroni, Mr. Dexter
and Other Capable Actors, They
Present "Diplomacy" With Grip
ping Effectiveness at Majestic
A rare display of fine acting was
given last evening in the Majestic
when William Gillette, Blanche Bates
and Marie Doro, heralded as "three
si ir'' combination, appeared in the
intensely absorbing play of interna
tional fame, "Diplomacy." The work
of Mr. Gillette, particularly, stood out
even in comparison with "that of his
ac omplished fellow artists. He had
more work and more exacting work to
do than either of the other two prin
cipals. This fact, perhaps, give him
more opportunity to make a success
or failure of his part and the unani
mous verdict of the audience was that
he made a wonderful success of it.
Miss Bates, as "t'omtezza Zicka."
a diplomatist who combines all the
wiles of a jealous woman with her
skill at political intrique, gripped the
audience by her display of rare artis
try, while Miss Doro, as ''Dora," the
innocent wife who is suspected for a
time of all the perfidy of the "Comtez-
ZH Zicka." took her part admirably.
Miss Doro does not, perhaps, possess
all'of the histronic skill possessed bv
the more experienced Miss Bates, but '
she nevertheless is an actress of rare i
merit who by no means depends sole
ly upon her 'jirliehness anil youthful '

On March 9 Austria consented to
discuss compensations. Foreign Min

points of the Italian demands. Baron
Burian answered that Austria would
rot accept. Prince Von Buelow. the
German Ambassador in Home, on March
20, in the name of Germany, guaran
teed the execution, after the conclu
sion of peace, of any agreement made
by Austria. Signer Sonnino agreed to
resume negotiation* on the condition
that Vienna would make concrete pro
Sonnino's Contempt for Demands
Seven days later Baron Burian
asked Italy to give formal agreement
to the following clauses:
First, the maintenance of benevolent
political and economic neutrality
throughout the winter; second. Austria
to have a free hand in the Balkans;
third, the renunciation on the part of
Italy of any further compensation, and,
fourth, the maintenance of the existing
n« cord concerning Albania. On April
2 Barion Burian said in the exchange
for these pledges Austria would give
to Italy the districts of Roveredo, Riva
and Trentino, as well as a few villages.
M. Sonnino replied he considered
these demands contemptible; neverthe
less, they were permitted to stand.

On receipt of this report Signor Son
nino. considering any accord impossible,
denounced the alliance with Austro
11ungiirv. He said that last summer
Austria-Hungary, without reaching any
agreement with Italy and without giv
ing Italy any notice whatever, even
the advice of Italy that
moderation be observed, had sent to
Serbia on July 23 an ultimatum which
was the ca ise of the present cbntiagra
Annulling Treaty of Alliance
Thus Austria-Hungary had disturbed
I the status qtn in the Balkans, creating
a situation which was of advantage to
herself alone Such a course of vio
lence made benevolent neutrality impos
sible for the reason that Austria-Hun
gary was fighting to attain an object
diametrically opposed to the vital in
terests of Italy, her ally.
Nevertheless, for a period of several
months, Italy endeavored to bring
about a situation favorable to the re
establishment of friendly relations be
tween the two countries, hut these ne
gotiations brought no practical results.
Consequently the alliance was de
nounced by the Puke of Avarna on
May -1. The Duke on this occasion
said Italy was confident of her rights
and he affirmed t.» the Austro-Huagar
ian government "that from this mo
ment Italy resumes entire liberty of ac
tion, declaring that her treaty with
Austria-Hungary is hereby annulled
and without effect."
DEMANDS UPON Al STRIA BY
SONMXO IX BEHALF OF ITALY
Rome. May 19. via Paris, May 20.
—The minimum demands made upon
Austria in behalf of Italy by Foreign
Minister Sonnino were:
First, the cession of the entire prov
ince of Trent (part of Austrian Tyrol)
according to the frontier of the king
dom of Italy in 1811.
Second, Eastern Friuali comprising
Malbergeth, Plezzo, Tolmine, Gradi
sca, Goritz, Monfalpone, Comen and as
far Bouth as Nabresina.
Third. Trieste, Cape D'Kstria anil
, Pi ratio (the last two in Istria) to form
a new state independent from Austria.
Fourth, the islands of Curzola,
Lissa. Lesina, Lagosta, Cassa and
Meleda (oft the coast of Lovyer Dala
matia) to be ceded to Italy.
Fifth, the abandonment by Austria
of her interests in Albania," acknowl
edging Italian soverignty over Avlona.
Austrian Offers Came Too Late
Rome, Via Paris, May 20.—Tho
"Gioirrnal D'ltalia" says the Imperial
German Chancellor, Dr." Von Betlinian-
Hollweg, forgot to say at what time
Austria made the offers of concessions
which he announce I and adds:
"The Austrian offers came after the
time tixed by Italy for the acceptance
of her demands, when the treaty with
Austria had already been denounced.
"Even as announced by the German
chancellor, the Austrian offers are fnr
from approaching Italy's demands,
chiefly witii respect to Triest, which
Italy wished to be at least absolutely
free an I independent from Austria and
that strategical situation in the Adri
atic, which Italy desired should be
changed to her advantage. Triest, re
maining an Austrian town, would have
been at th e mercy of the Vienna gov
ernment which could have withdrawn
her municipal autonomy at their pleas
ure, possibly forcing Italy to fight
"It would have been better had the
German chancellor told the entire truth
and placed the Austrian offers and the
Italian demands side by side."

"The cargo was composed mainly of
contraband.'' the writer continues,
"and was liable to condemnation. Un
der the law ship and cargo, if it is
impossible to tow them into a harbor,

Mayflower's Pilot Injured
Captain William E. Luckett, who has
piloted the (Mayflower for several years
011 aer trips up and down the Potomac,
was injured while on his way to Pinev
Point to join the va *ht last night. His
automobile was ditched and he was
thrown through the windshield. His
Head was cut but he continued to
Piney Point and boarded the (Mayflower
and piloted her to the navy yard here.
The President expressed his dee;> sym
pathy to Captain Luckett.
The President and his party stopped
on their way up the river to so ashore
at Wakefield, Va., and' at Stratford,
Va.. to visit the birthplaces of George
Washington and Robert E. Loe. The
house in which Lee was born still stands
but only a monument marks the birth
place of Washington. Folks in that
secluded section of Virginia were
amazed and overjoyed at the visit of
the Presidential party.
Visits Homestead of E. E. Lee
The President with Miss Margaret
Wilson,- Mrs. Howe, his sister; Mrs.
Anna Cothrah. his niece; Dr. Grayson
and Captain Luckett went ashore in a
flat boat because the launches of the
Mayflower were unable to make the
landing. The pilot undertook to guide
the party to the Lee homestead.
The route led for more than a mile
through a dense wood over a narrow
path. The party had landed unobserved
and no natives were encountered until
the Lee homestead was reached.
Pilott Luckett, expert in guiding Pres
idential yachts down the Potomac, al
though he displayed almost as much
knowledge of the country side, was on
the point of getting lost several times
but finally the Presidential party
emerged into a clearingfi where nestled
the- one-story, English brick house in
which Robert E.'Lee was born. It is
now occupied by Dr. and iMrs. Stewart
and their son. Mrs. Stewart greeted
the President and his party warmly.
First President She Ever Saw
" My husband's ear itched this morn
ing and I knew something was going
to happen," said she. "Now the Pres
ident of the United States has come."
It was the first time Mrs. Stewart
had seen a President. The President
visited the room where General Loe
was born and inspected many pieces of
colonial furniture. He expressed his
deep interest in the place and thanked
the Stewarts for their hospitality.
On the return to the Mayflower the
President visited the monument mark
ing the birthplace of Washington. Con

for its upkeep.
