Visit To France

T T is a tragedy that the Government 1 whose success in corning to agreements with Italy, the United States and even, in a more remote way, with Germany, should have to entertain extremely feeble hopes of useful work during the conversations in Paris, owing to the uncertain position of the present administration.

Public men in France have let their country down in a way that beggars description. In the international field they have today no friends except a doubtful England and a defeated third of Spain; in the financial and social field they have temporarily ruined the country without assuring social justice or securing happiness for the people; in the political field itself the people have been blackmailed by capitalist interests, political racketing and the organised section of the workers, led by extremists.

Under these circumstances violence cannot but be a possibility unless the spiritual and moral character of the people succeeds in asserting itself.
