The January Atlantic contains an
outline resume of the events of 1920
which is helpful to one who wants to
know where we are and what we are
doing. Some notes of the same may
interest our readers.
It has been a critical year here as
elsewhere. The miners'. strike
threatened to be most disastrous, but
drifted by like a summer thunder
storm much noise and little damage.
The Independent Labor Party,
much enamored of Bolshevism; sent
emissaries to Russia to have a look at
It near at hand. , They came' back
quite disillusioned, and now no one in
England thinks Red.
The labor power seems to be dis
credited, for the time beins anyway,
and the bogy of a Labor Parliament
In the Broader Domains of her Em
pire England has many serious and
menacing problems. In Mesepotamia
the Turks and the Bolshevists have
stirred up a Holy War which keeps
an army of 100,000 BritiBti soldiers
busy. The temper of India is uncer
tain and threatening. The Bolshe
vist leaven is working more or less.
A measure of home government is be
ing inaugurated there, but it seems
to be along caste lines which can
hardly give general satisfaction. 1 In
Egypt It is proposed to turn over the
government to the scum of the Levant.
The Reds have established a base In
Persia, from which they threaten At
ganistan' and India. The Turk is
still a thorn in the flesh, that festers
in spite of all the operations, or threats
What to do about Russia? What
to do about Germany? Whichever
way the Englishman looks he sees a
'cloud that is dragonish."
And worst of all, he notes in the
British public a temper the reverse of
Imperialistic. He notes that it is
impossible to recruit the British army
to its authorized strength by volun
tary enlistments. He notes a tenden
cy to buy off the Invader rather than
grapple with him. Such a policy
marks the absence of that masterful
cast of mind which alone consists
The year has been one of anxiety
and disappointment. The main In
terest and endeavor have been to com
pel Germany to meet bpr obligations
under the treaty of peace. And the
outcome thus far fias beon far from
satisfactory. The Germans had and
have no intention of fulfilling these
obligations. For the present, evasion
and delay; later, modification of the
Treaty by the Allies; and in the end
repudiation. Such Is the program,
True to their old methods, every
possible string of propaganda is being
pulled, and in the meantime they
hang back in the traces, and haggle
and delay to the uttermost. The
coal deliveries are short of treaty re
qulrements. The arms are not being
turned in. The army is not being
cut down. None of the rigid stipu
lations of the Treaty are being kept in
The French, as being most nearly
concerned, are anxious and Irritated;
the more so as England has grown
more or less Indifferent, and the tem
per of the United States is uncertain
The French now find themselves
practically isolated In their insistent
demand to enforce the indemnity, and
Btand by the Treaty as adopted. And
they realize that more and more this
will be their precarious position. They
are naturally anxious to have the am
ount of the Indemnity definitely fixed
so that they may begin to collect the
same, and know "where they are at."
But this is a problem that tends much
more to delay than to speedy settle
ment. Taking a long view, there is every
reason to fear that France may never
recover any considerable indemnity.
Accepting this as a probability,
what of her future? Her economic
situation is indescribable. Her or
dinary budget is beyond her revenue,
and her supplementary budget for war
reparation is larger still. The deficit .
is being met by fresh loans and lnfla-
tion, which means ruin near at hand.
And security for the future seems
uncertain. The promised assurance
of American and British support on
the strength of which she gave up the
Rhine frontier and assured possess
ion of the Saar Valley, this all falls
to the ground through the failure of
the United States to make good the
ndertaklngs of President Wilson.
In Russia the outstanding wonder
s that there Is any Russia left, and
that it seems to be better than it was
year ago. Despite the breakdown
of the economic system and the rail
roads, despite a currency that is not
current, despite disturbances in indus
trial centers, and peasant resistance
to food requisitions; despite the block
ade; despite infinite obstructions
within and without, that strange gov
ernment at Moscow not merely sur
vives, but keeps going. Armies are
fed; new levies fill the gaps; troops
and war material are transported
with magic speed over huge distances
from front to front; succor is sent to
allies; new enterprises are set on
Ail this shows an incredible virility
and efficiency on the part of a people
and an administration that we thought
had utterly broken down in collapse.
It now looks as though the continued
exlstance of the Bolshevist regime
were more promising than it was a
The ups and downs of the various
campaigns in Russia and Siberia have
been too complicated, and too obscure
to follow but the final outcome seems
to be that: "Opposition in Russia
seems now to have been completely
cowed; and invasion from without is
prevented by the attitude of labor and
the Pacifists in Western Europe, and
the Olympian detachment of America."
In addition to other evidences of
power and permanence, tne soviet
government has the assurance of a
beneficial Trade arrangement with
England, and ultimately a de facto re
cognition which will place them prop
erly on their feet in the family of
The outstanding events have been
few in America as compared with the
rest of the civilized world.
We ere experiencing some of the
dreaded aftermath of the war, but our
evils and discomforts are trifling com
pared with those of Europe.
Owing largely to the antagonism be
tween the Administration and the Re
publican Congress there has been
little constructive legislation during
the year. Acts dealing with Railroad
Reorganization, Army Reorganization,
Merchant Marine, and Americani
zation, are the main ones which were
carried through to a final finish.
, The year has been remarket' for
a general round-up of radical agita
tors, the worst of whom, being al'ens,
have been packed home: The country
has no use for that kind of birds,
and they have been handled decisively
and without gloves.
A NEW NUT
A new nut of great promise has been
found in Africa. It is called the
Telfaerta, and produces a large
gourd two or three feet long which is
filled with seeds an inch In diameter
which taste something like the butter
nut. It is being propagated in the
Southern States, and being tropical,
should be promising for us in Hawaii.
