At a recent dinner in New York City before the Inter-Parliamentary Union, representing the Parliaments of the world, Professor John Bassett Moore, ex-Assistant Secretary of State, and now of Columbia University, took the advanced position that The Hague Conference must develop into a world government, embracing the three complete departments of legislative, judicial, and executive control. This implies that the Conference of The Hague shall be held at regular or stated periods and so become self-perpetuating, giving it permanent influence. Such a regular court or conference could appoint a commission to formulate the law of nations; devise means of punishing or restraining a nation that disobeys these laws or refuses to accept the decisions of the court relative to questions submitted to it, and draw a model treaty of arbitration.
Already the British House of Commons has made the proposal, supported by the House of Lords, that the question of the reduction or restriction of the armament of nations be referred to The Hague.
During the past year the number of arbitration treaties has risen from thirty to forty-four. of these two, Denmark with the Netherlands and Italy, refer to The Hague all disputes.
