a “The League
Bt. Ba of Nations.” By ALFRED LEA, Horwich,
‘h I was born in the dark days of anxiety and helplessness, during the period of the |}
: ht most cruel warfare the world has ever seen; when nations. raged and Europe was
; drenched with the blood of its slaughtered millions, its murdered innocents, and tortured
: HTN subjects; and everyone was threatened with starvation. I was acclaimed with gratitude
S fia) ba _ and came into existence at a critical moment, and { am jealously proud of my parentage |
; Pani and noble sponsors. { am beloved by all, as 1 am destined—if adopted—to benefit
ie A ; mankind by the overthrowing of despotism, the subduing of monarchical tyrants, and the
S Bb banishment of war. My maintenance will not lay any heavy burden upon the kingdoms ‘|
ft i He of the world, nor shall 1 drain the vitality of peoples or bring about the ruin of nations, |
He Mea My purpose is to build-up and replenish, where war broke down and destroyed. My :
S| aa mission is to cement international friendships and create concord where previously hatred,
ee | i NEMS enmity, and envy existed; to comfort, heal, and bless—not to cripple, bleed, starve, and |
= He hold in bondage. I shall bring more of Heaven to earth, and grant freedom of action, |
| i speech, and thought to all mankind. I will preach and encourage true religion and cast |
> RS Rae out false creeds of assumed mighty power, anarchy, and ruthless desires of individual
| ie | \ advancemen at the expense of many. Under my administration everyone will have’ an
: [ a | equal opportunity; all will respect old age and give consideration to the claims of the
ma ii, i s young. I shall grant to all couniries their rightful dues and prevent their being oppressed |
~ an at heivia by more powerful nations. The doctrine of Might 1 do not recognise. It is my intention
eb) cul to convert weapons of destruction into instruments of service for mankind. My ideals
my will be justice, reason, mutual confidence, and goodwill among nations. Haughty and
4 ' i HE ; militarist nations will fear ‘me; their inhuman doctrines and action I cannot, and. will
mj} a Gah ; not, tolerate. Arrogance, atrocity, torture, murder, and unscrupulous dealing 1 shall
os A i . punish, and future miscreants will tremble at the sight of my warning finger. Those |
ce a who fail to obey my laws will have no quarter until, truly repentant, they approach me
peop WMI \ for companionship, the price of which will be the full and complete adoption of my ideals. |
! | i My eyes will ever be open to the maintenance of national discipline, and equal rights
mei | in for all persons, and nations. Selfish:: economic combinations | shall dismiss: impartial —
: hitsiet justice is my creed. Misunderstandings I shall rectify without bloodshed, and I shall
= : Aah i: cs deal openly and fascly with disputants. I allow no secret conclaves : nothing between :
S i pola i i nations and peoples will! remain unknown td me, and secret diplomacy I shall scatter to
<= a mae ie the winds. My influence and! concern shall be for all who co-operate in the establishment
ae i Ay ae i of “mutual relationships. {Equality of trading conditions I shall righteously determine.
ap bin ae Great‘armies andj navies | break asunder, and for military forces find more useful .
ble a ae services :—only for the proper punishment of international truce-breakers shall I require
s ral them. Loving, not fighting one another, is my sole object in bringing together the different
\ : Hu eae nations under!one common bond. I ask recognition of my authority and compliance
‘ a Hl ( with my demands. I aim ai! beneficial {social 'intercourse; development on wise lines, true
ea bil : Wes government, and obedience to just” laws. +1; shall settle !all claims with fairness, and restore
E \ Hil Wie all, that has {been wrongly ‘seized. Every agsistsnce’’will 1 render to the promotion of
ae SR industry, the'/development ‘of science, fand} the” freedom of the seas: I am the very —
i a ne ey antithesis of greed and war. I am ‘the harbinger) of great rejoicing and universal peace. |
