At another point in his speech Lord
Curzon, referring to the Washington
conference, spoke of the joy which was
felt throughout the nation over the
events of the last ten days at Wash- |
ington, but said he was not going to j
utter any premature hosanna*. Ile!
cited the great day when the Czar of !
Russia invited tho nations of the
world to discuss disarmament, and add?
ed that this did not prevent the most
devastating war of history or the Czar
;from losing his life.
He mentioned the proposal made dur?
ing Lord Grey's secretaryship for a
treaty of arbitration with America.
?"Again the sun of peace came on to
shine," he said, "but it did not prevent
war." He said he did not suppose our
swords were going to be made into
^plowshares, and he did not suppose
"old Adam" was expurgated from man.
It was not by resolutions of a confer?
ence, but by the resolution of the peo?
ple, that a change could occur, he said.
Decade Needed for Recovery
Among the other points in Lord Cur
r.on's address was the statement that,
looking calmly ahead, he believed a
decade would .pass from the signing of
the armistice before normal conditions
of life ar. they were in the old days
would be resumed. Speaking of the
necessity of international co-operation
for the re-establishment of peace, he
sa i d :
"Look at what has happened at
Washington. L?ntil the meeting of the
conference Japan was building ships,
Great Britain was building- ships and
America was building snips. Why
could they not cut their program in
half? Because each one was afraid of
the competition of the other. Each was
afraid of being confronted with a pro?
gram bigger than its own. But they
met at Washington around a table.
Seme one gave the lead. Another great
power followed, and in a moment you
had an advance by common consultation
:.nd mutual action which might have
taken years to achieve if it had been
left to the initiaive of any individual
power acting by itself. I should like
to apply this golden rule method all
After saying the great powers would
s.ssist Germany provided she showed
sincerity, Lord Curzon? added: ''So long
as Great Britain, France and Italy hold
together I am hopeful of this result."
Demands Peace in East
The speaker said in reference to
the hostilities between the Greeks and
tho Turkish Nationalists that it was
very important that there should be no
victory for either side and that there
should be peace. That, he said, would
be in the interests of both parties,
ard it was important to this country,
'because, although we fought against
thf Turks, although they were guilty
of many inhuman acts and although we
beat them in war, we have no perma?
nent quarrel with the Mohammedan
races. We are the greatest Mohamme?
dan power in the world. If only we
could kill the suspicion prevailing
between Greece and Turkey, we might
persuade them that there is room for
both in the Near East. Our hopes will
materialize only if we go into this
affair with a single policy, a single
aim and a single plan."

There is a general feeling that the
one big point which the Japanese have
been making?that they be permitted
to retain their new battleship Mutsu?

their scrapping an older ship of heavy
Neither the British nor the American
delegations like this idea. The Ameri- !
cans feel that it is really violating I
the spirit of the Hughes yardstick. The
British point out that the Mutsu will
make two post-Jutland battleships in
the Japanese fleet, while they have not
a single one. The Americans have only
one post-Jutland ship, and they point
out in fairness if the Japanese should
be permitted to retain the Mutsu this
country should be allowed to finish the
Colorado, at least, if not the Washing?
ton. The Colorado would make two
post-Jutland ships for the United
New Models Far Superior
This point is important because naval
experts are pretty well agreed that a
pre-Jutland ship would have very lit-:
tie chance with a battleship laid down !
since that battle.
Under the Japanese argument, how-i
ever, the Mutsu, if the Hughes yard- i
stick 13 to be strictly applied, would
not have to be scrapped, pince they
contend she was actually in commis- !
sion prior to November 11, the date !
for which the conference was called. ?
By being permitted to retain her the I
Japanese figure they would save a tre?
mendous sum o' money some years
hence, because the Mutsu would not
have to be replaced for twenty years,
under the replacement provision of the
Hughes program, whereas if an older
ship were left in the navy now, and
the Mutsu scrapped, the replacement
would have to take place perhaps fif?
teen years earlier. They point out that
fifteen years' compound interest on the
cost of a battleship is not very far
from the original cost of the vessel.
The same argument, of course, would :
apply to America on the battlesliip |
Colorado, now almost finished, but j
would not apply to the British, who
have spent comparatively little on their
four new Hoods. No keels have been
laid on the Hoods.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.?It is cer?
tainly strange and symbolic that on
this Thanksgiving Thursday a confer?
ence of nine powers as diverso from
one another as Portugal and Japan
should pause in its work, while Ameri?
cans* observed the day. All the com?

respective secretaries and their inter?

the rain falling and the theaters full.

it must set apart a day to give thanks

a holiday there would have been races
at Epsom and a gala performance ir

tho public, sitting there shrouded in
darkness, which of these, peace or war,
the public wants. Everything that tells
for Hughes's disnrmament is applauded.
Tho rest is nothing and nowhere.
Americans have taken up their posi?
tion. They want an end of slaughter.
They would rather have u slow and pa?
tient solution in China than a surgical
operation. All their traditional friend?
ships, admirations and enmities are be?
ing rearranged, according to the hu
prome test; namely, this choice between
force and reason, between skepticism
and faith, between hatred and comrade?
ship. If Franca recodes from the fore?
ground it is because she fails in this
faith. W England emerges from the
background it is because ?ho accepts
this faith. If Japan wins her way into
the Western family it is because she

Faith Illusion for France
Japan has realized this. She takes
her seat at the table and remains in
tho conference, actively assisting.
Japan is a realist and very clever. She
finds in faith a fact. M. Briand has net
forth on this Thanksgiving Day for
New York and Paris. He leaves Wash?
ington because to him the faith is still
not a fact, but an illusion. It is beauti

; no dream save the nightmare of war.
So be it, but from Italy comes the
| note of aspiration. Disarm on land,
she pleads, or we perish. She tells of
the chaos in the east of Europe, of
Poland and Rumania and Czecho?
slovakia and Jugo-Slavia, with their
forces ready to fly at each other's
j throats, and she insists that disarma?
ment on land be kept on the agenda.
Her attitude is precisely that of Sec?
retary Hughes and of Mr. Balfour.
And land disarmament remains there?
fore a possibility. It may be only a
dim and distant possibility, but it ?b
not ruled out. It means so much?

i well as on sea.
It is not a question of one nation
j against another nation. It is a quea

? in evil. It is the eternal conflict be
? twecn life and death, ontimism and
j pessimism, confidence and cynicism. Is

One Plan Advanced
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24 (By The As?
sociated Press).?Looking forward to
a unanimous agreement among the
eight powers respecting the unre?
stricted future of China, there is some
speculation among members of the
delegations as to how the terms of the
arrangement may best be realized.
The final convention or understand?
ing, as the case may be, is expected
to contain some stipulations in detail
respecting tariff questions, the pooling
of the operation of railway concessions
and other subjects. For this reason
considerable informal inquiry has been
made as to what sort of supervision
could be set up to carry out the agree?
ments and harmonize varying interpre?
In this connection the question fre?
quently is asked: Is all the after-work
of the conference to be done by notes
and telegrams among the nine partici?
pating governments, including China,
or is a nt-w international organ to be
created to observe, interpret and ex?
ecute the agreement subject to ap?
proval by the respective member gov?
The favorite suggestion, especially
among minor members of the French
delegation, is that an ambassadorial
council might be designated, made up
of the ambassadors and ministers of
the various governments in Washing?
ton, to deal with Chinese matters from
here in the same way that the Ambassa?
dors' Council of Paris disposes of ques?
tions arising out of the Treaty of Ver?
sailles, not of sufficient importance to
bring before a supreme council of the
heads of the Allied governments.
The council in Paris is a semi-per?

or twice a week, sometimes more often.

tional co-operation for China's re?
habilitation must perm;t no one coun?
try to have advantages over Others.
International co-operation is the sys?
tem which Great Britain has decided
upon, and China is trying to find out
what it means.
Puzzling Questions Asked
Summed up, the situation from the
Chinese viewpoint is clear. Sho has
asked for everything. How much will
she get? She insists that the con?
ference has committed itself to the
restoration of her sovereignty as com?
plete, so far a? her internal affairs go,
as she had when she was a hermit em?
pire. How, the Chinese delegates ask,
is compl?tai sovereignty to be made
compatible with foreign control of her
railroads, foreign control of her cus?
toms and foreign control of invest?
ments made under consortium loans?
She has asked that all treaties, secret
or otherwise, be spread on the table,
with a view to their annulment, if
found unjust, or to their re-enactment
if found fair to China. Will she be able
to have canceled those treaties, which,
she says, were signed under compul?
Most of her present difficulties, as
these with Japan in regard to Man?
churia, Mongolia and Shantung, are I
founded upon past transactions. Will !
the conference delve into tho past, ask ,
the Chinese delegates, or must China ;
hope only for protection in the future? j
Japan has indicated that the four i
principles framed by Mr. Root are ap- |
plicabie only to future transactions, \
although "past deeds may be brought
up by consent of all the powers."
Rebels Against 21 Demands
Onr> of the first points which China ,
will ask to be "brought up with the
consent of all the powers," it was
learned today, is her demand that the
1915 Japanese-Chinese treaty, known
as the 21 demands, be nbrogatcd. The
continued existence of the treaties
founded on these demands, China as?
serts, is a direct, violation of the open
door policy. Moreover, it is contended,
these treaties are typical of the kind
which have always brought humilia?
tion upon China, since they begin with
professions of friendship and end with
Outside of Chinese circles the opin?
ion prevails that China will be "put
on her feet" by the conference, and
that this will be done not by a pre?
cipitate restoration of her sovereignty,
but by international co-operation such
as Great Britain prescribes. The ques?
tion remains how far the international
co-operation will penetrate and how
free it will leave the Chinese republic
to manage its own affairs as it shows
fitness to do so. With at least a re?
laxation of foreign control, the 400,
000,000 Orientals spread over that vast
domain, it is hoped here, will be drawn
together by reawakened pride and
within a few years coalesce into a
ration, politically competent and in?
Japan Awaits Developments
Japan's attitude is being watched
with keen interest. She has more at
stake as regards Onina, but she says
less than any other country. "Await?
ing developments" is Japan's watch?
word. "We will add to our prestige"
is her promise. Her concession that
the map of China before the confer?
ence is the map of "historic China"
opens up big possibilities in regard to
Manchuria and Mongolia, where Japan
now holds the reins of government. If
sho yields an inch in any of those
provinces China will consider it a
precedent that augurs well for the fu?
ture. If Japan insists on the "con
tractural integrity" of her ninety-nine
year leaseholds in Manchuria and else
j where, and wins, the Chinese delegates

Back of China's stand before the

is involved America will support her to
the bitter end. Upon no one is she

MADRID, Nov. 24.--Discussing edi- '
torinlly the Washington armament con- j

Spain was excluded from the confer
ence, ?is its results wili be of the ut- i
most importance to this country. It ?
argues the United States has become
the financial center of the world and !
is now trying to obtain political pre?
dominance "and humiliate Europe."
The conference, the newspaper de?
clares, has given a death blow to the
League of Nations and by an ingenuous
polic- an overwhelming influence in
the Pacific has been procured which is
likely to extend1 to other seas, includ?
ing the Mediten-anean. It concludes
that Spain should therefore secure her
position on tho Moroccan coast and
reach an agreement with France for
defense, because a limitation of arma?
ments which might mean an equi?
librium for the United States, England
and Japan might also lead to a desire |
to dominate Europe.

volve practical control by the United
States and the British empire"
In making thin statement the Lord
Chancellor was simply reiterating what j
has already been said by Lloyd George, |
Winston Churchill, former Premier
Asquith, Viscount Grey, Lord Robert
Cecil and several leaders of the Labor
party. The question of debt cancella?
tion is growing larger daily and there
is every expectation here that it will
soon be a subject at the conference.
With China looming larger in the
Washington discussions, there will
come further opportunity for Britain
to show her desire to work in harmony
with the United States. The last word j
about the Anglo-Japanese treaty has
not yet been spoken, and although the
majority here fail to appreciate why
Americans are so antagonistic toward
it, they are not going to let it prove an
obstruction to the course of reaching a
settlement on tho Far East.
Japanese Alliance Assailed
An indication of tho drift of opinion
regarding the Japanese alliance was
given this afternoon, when the Na?
tional Liberal Federation, representing
the Asquithian Liberals, met at New?
castle. A resolution was placed before
the meeting congratulating tho govern?
ment on sending delegates to Wash?
ington, welcoming the United States
naval proposals, and demanding that
British representatives in Washington
and tho League of Nations be in?
structed to support all practicable pro?
posals for the progressive disarma?
ment of nil nations.
An amendment was proposed by the
York Liberal Association that the Jap?
anese alliance should be canceled im?
mediately. After a discussion, in
which J. M. Robertson, presiding, said
that Japan should not be given too
brusque and curt a notice in view of
her attitude at Washington tn?
ment was not pressed -rmt tfe am??d.
