Annual Subscription, 7/ Half Year, 3/6 (post free). THE Genoa Conference has come to a conclusion with which no one can possibly be completely satisfied, how- ever bright a face he may wish to place upon it. But we should not assume, however, that it has been a complete failure, although Lord Northcliffe and his minions may declare it in a thousand shrieking voices. It is something that the representatives of the States of Europe have met together and exchanged views and ideas. It is not much less important, that, after doing so, they were able to arrange a temporary truce, which, if it does not altogether avert war in Europe, and parti- cularly in the near East, at any rate greatly lessens that horrible possibility. Above all, the nations represented, however marked may have been their differences, have de- clared their belief in the utility of negotia- tions, and what was begun in Genoa will be continued at the Hague.

This may not be altogether an evil thing. Definition, even with an over-emphasis, is often a first step towards comprehension and under- standing. There are, of course, grave difficulties, which must not be overlooked. Apart altogether from the question of the debts to the nationals, it is only to be expected that the peasant pro- prietors of France and Belgium should feel some revulsion against a govern- ment which has abolished private property -at least in theory, which is what matters ultimately-much in the same way as the divine-right monarch of the days of the French Revolution felt a great reluctance in coming to an understanding with Napoleon. The moral of it all is the un- wisdom of the victorious countries in not making the League of Nations a real power, in not allowing it to deal with issues with which it alone can properly deal, and the devastating results of the failure of America to join that body.
