Mark Twain on Universal Peace.
LONDON, Oct. 20.--The Vienna correspondent of The Daily News says: "Samuel
L. Clemens (Mark Twain,) who has addressed a meeting of the Society of the Friends
of Peace here, told them that he formerly doubted whether the world would ever
be able to put a stop to war, but that the Czar had convinced and converted
him. He spoke in English. The speech was not interpreted to the assembly, because
the Government representative doubted that all Mr. Clemens said would bear translation."
