Congress of Peace
The Peace Conference called by the Czar of Russia was opened at two o'clock on the afternoon of May 18, in the hall of the Huis Ten Bosch, or the "House in the Woods," two miles from The Hague. M. De Beaufort, president of the council and minister of foreign affairs of the government of the Netherlands, delivered the inaugural address and welcomed the delegates.
M. De Beaufort spoke of the high honor of the choice of The Hague as the meeting place for the conference, and extolled the noble initiative of the Czar, saying this would be a red-letter day in the history of the century, and expressing the hope that his majesty would be able to look back at to-day as the most glorious day of his life. He concluded with calling attention to the allegorical group over the doorway of the hall, Peace entering to close the temple of Janus, and said, "I trust this beautiful allegory will be a good augury of your labors, and that after you have completed them you will be able to say that Peace, whom art introduced into this hall, left it to spread its blessings among the whole of humanity."
