London, Sept. 5.—In the historic
Guild Hall of London, Premier As-
quith started the crusade to stimulate
enlistment under the British flag,
•which he intends to A>ush throughout
the country. He is, dulling upon every
able-bodied Briton of military age to
come to the help of his country in the
hour of need.
The premier opened his Guild Hall
address with the heartening announce-
ment that up to today between 250,000
and 300,000 recruits had responded to
the call of Lord Kitchener, the secre-
tary of war.
“We now find ourselves involved
with the whole strength of this em-
pire in a bloody abitrament of might
versus right,’’ the premier declared,
"that has bene entered into with clear
Judgment and a clear conscience.
Whait would have been our place
among the nations if we had been base
enough or so paralyzed in our sense
of honor and duty to be false to our
word and faithless to our friends? We
should have been standing by with
folded arms and with such counten-
ance an we could command while this
tion without resorting to arms. “No
one then was sanguine enough to
think or hope that the era of war was
at an end,” he continued. “But no one
anticipated such a terrible spectacle
as confronts us today at a time when
we thought we were confident In the
security of peace.”
The premier paid a compliment to
the policy of Sir Edgard Grey, the
British foreign secretary, reviewing
the incidents leading up to the war,
he declared that one power and one
power only was responsible for the
war and that power was Germany.

Rome, Italy, Sept. 5.—It is related
that Pope Benedict, before his elec-

pontiff should intervene diplomatical-

The pope must actually place himself
amid the combatants and not preach
peace from a distance, he said. These
ideas, with absolute neutrality, secur-
ed his election.
