ual hindrances that confront them at
every hand's turn.
But parallel with the conference
and the daily lectures which its mem
bers are receiving on foreign geog
raphy, ethnography and history,
there are other councils at work,
some pt#blicly, others privately,
which represent the vast masses who
are in a greater hurry than the po
litica]l world to have their urgent
wants supplied, for they are the mil
lions of Eurgpean inhabitants who
care little about stategic frontiers
and much about the necessaries
which they find it increasingly diffi
cult to obtain.
Orly a viqitor from a remote plan
et could fully realize the significance
of the bewildering phenomena that
meets one's gaze here every day with
out exciting wonder. On one hand
there is the gay Ville Lumicre, re
splendent, festive and joyful at the
glorious victory, and prodigal in sac
rifices to celebrate it worthily. Vien
na, during the congress, was less vi
vaciously joyous than Paris is today.
Princes are honoring the republican
city with their presence; grand dukes
are generously lavishing smiles; ma
zurkas, tangos and weird Texas dan
ces are executed nightly in the cab
arets of Montmarte, and historic
mansions around the Pare Mlonceau.
Nay, even in the splendid hotels lit
ted with silver baths, inhabited by
pacific armies of delegates, technical
experts, secretaries and typists, dlan

The festivities sand namusemeunts on
this upper plane of Paris recall the
glowing descriptons of the fret and
fever of existence in the Austrian
capital 100 years ago. These p)eople
who form rind of the political and
social world are speculatively inter
ested in tpe august plenipotentiaries
toiling for.(he weal of the human
race, and eagerly offer hospitalty to
the exotic lions of the epoch, to the
most of whom they have given ex
They launch winged words and
coin witty epigrams, characterizing
what they irreverently term the ef
forts of the peace conference to
square the circle. They contrast the
noble intentions of the delegates
with the grim realities of the work
aday world, which appear to mock
their praiseworthy exertions. They
say there never were so many wars as
during the deliberations of these fa
mous men of peace.
Warning to Worldi of Luxury.
Meanwhile, the peace conference is
secretly debating the conditions on
which these people shall forget their
enmity and live in friendship, on a
basis of mutual trust and give and
take, and Paris is celebrating the
glorious victory over the Teutons,
performing the tango and the curious
dances of Texas.
"Observe iA measure in your dan
cers, ladies and gentlemen," writes a
Parsian publicist in a timely warl.ing
addressed to the world of money and
"Luxury," said Victor Hugo, is a
necessity of great states and great
civilizations, but there are moments
when it must not be exhibted to the
masses, When the multitude beholds
luxury while suffering, want and dis
tress are prevalent, its spirits rises,
skipping many degrees at once. 'It
does not reflect that luxury produces
higher wages. It demands, not work,
not wages, but leisure, pleasure, .Ar4

Growing [Cnri st Among Masse5s.
Indigence has already made the· ac
quaintanoe of the lower middle class
who, by dint of long years of toil and
thrift, had scraped together the
wherewithal to spend the evening of
life in what was comparative eac;e
before the war. Familes with chil
dren who had contrived to Tmake end3
on 400 francs ($800) a year, are
now on the brink of misery, with no
relief in sight at present, and faced
with heavier taxes in the future.
Lower ddwn..are the working class
es, whose abnormally high and quick
ly-spent war gains have come to a
sudden end, 'and who have now to
face louckouts, strikes, lower wages
and higher rents, and the hardships
these entail. Yet they feel that the

sugar, white bradl. meat, eggs and
wine in abundance are now informed
by their wives that Ixuries like theme
are henceforth beyond their reach.
Three years ago beef cost one franc
three centimes a pound, but today
the butcher chargees five and a half
S$1.10). Chickens could then be had
at one franc seventy (33 cents) a
pound, whi'ereas tlhe very cheapest is
now sold at a rate of six francs
($1.20 a poundltl. Butter has risen
fromn 2:611 francs to 10 francs a
pound, and for one egg, which is
sometimes fresh, 80 centimes (16
cents) are charged.
Soldliers Growing Angry.
I-Hroes back from the trenches,
where they received all these things
in pletntyv and never worried about
ithe cost. after having saved civiliza.
tion from disaster, now find their
services rewarded by prohibitive
prices and positive hardships. Look
ing around, they behold processions
of magnificent motors, a dazzling dis
play of fashion and wealth crowded
in renowned restaurants performing
the sempiternal tango and various
dances, and they ask in anger: "Was
it for such a social system that they
faced death thousands of times in the
mud of the trenches and atmosphere
poisoned with deadly gasses?"
When sickness visits these fami
lies, as it so often does, and medical
care andt remnledies recede from their
reach and vanish among the luxuries
of the wealthy, the iron enters the
soul of these men and produces fren
zy which becomes epidemic, and
from the family hearth may spread
to the highways and byways.
For these heroes have no fear' of
death, no artificial restraints. With
this temper they are resolved to pull
down the barriers that separate them
from the life that is worth living.
They, too, glance casually at the con
ference and shrug their shoulders at
compromise and schemes that deal
with frontiers, languages and secrel
treaties, as if settling these wouhtl
transform secular grievances and in
tolerable incongruities into well-be
ing and coherence. They manifest no
interest in plenipotentiaries' wofk
beyond the desire to see it ternminat
ed, when they expect to take matters
into their own hands and remodel the
world for human beings to live in.
What the Socialists Want.
Like the plenipotentiaries, they,
socialists, too, desire a league of peo
ple, but unlike these, they' refuse to
distinguish between the enemies of
yesterday and the allies of today.
They desire equality, but refuse to
establish it in watertight compart

conference as the first installment l1

wholly unconscious of their responsi
bility. They claim they are ready
for action tomorrow, but are willing

I have talked with certain of their
chiefs and am convinced they will
realize many of the hopes and fearis
which are now centered in the peace
delegates, for they see things as they
are, piercing the diplomatic veils and
conventions and mean to ltiake a
strike for the goal they profess to be
in qluest of, not of vain formulas oe
pale abstractions, but of the single;
just. and permanent inl social lild.
They assure me they are anxiously
plamating their extremists who await
their orders, but are not certain of
sustained success because the least
accident might liberate the pent up
forces and bring about a deluge.
New F'orces'Are Ieady-.
A short time ago all trains and ail
work on the Paris-Lyons-Mediterran
can railroad were stopped for a cou
ple of minutes at the same moment.
The object was to give the double
warning that new popular forces
were ready to be unleashed at a sea
sonable moment, and that the forces
are highly organized and thoroughly
disciplined. The principal mechani
cian who arranged this momentary
strike is now in prison, but the
mechanism is, the papers assert, au
tomatic and in perfect working order.
Statements volunteered to me by
chiefs of the labor movements who
are seemingly desirous of postponing
uncoltstitutional manifestations as
long as possible, confirm this esser
tion, and add that the merest spark
may produce a conflagration which
political formulas will not extinguish.
I anm loath to utter' alarming pre
dictions, but consider it my duty to
warn the public of danger which is
real. I myself have studied its symp
toms and endeavored to guage its
force. There is still time to dislodge
it but there is no time to lose. It is
not bolshevism, it is not restive
demagogy, it is not anti-government
conspiracy, nor frenzied socialism;
it is an impulsive movement of the
masses, stirred by an awakened sense
of bitter wrong, stung by sharp
fanged hunger, irritated beyond con
trol by the ingratitude of society, and
stimulated by the strength that
comes from conscious power.

quite indignant over the fact that
her boy not only failed to get what
she ordered for him, but didn't get
his Christmas package until after
Christmas. Her son is now 20 years
old, having enlisted January 12,
1918, when h'e'was a senior at the
Lincoln high school.
"On October 31, 1918, I went to
the Bon Mat'fele, .gents for Har
rod's of lioond, Itgland, and made
my seledtion wom the list given to
me of what I ahnted my son to have
for Christmatg from rie. I chose
four pounds of candy and seven
packages of chewing gum. The cost
being $4.50. 'The Bon Marche, like
other stores who had similar
agencies, cabled the order to I,on
don, the packages being packed at
HIarrod's and forwarded to their
Received Package Late.
"I got a letter from my son dated
Jan. 21, 1919, which showed that. he
received the package Jan. 6. lie said:
,'While I was in Paris the last time
I got your box from Harrod's. It
was fine in you folks to send it and
you know how much I appreciate
it. It contained some chocolate,
sardines, soap, cigarettes and plum
Upon receiving this letter Mrs.
Lacy wrote to her son, telling him
what she had ordered for him and
asking him to demand the things
from Harrod's. She went to the lon
Marche about two weeks ago and
made a complaint. after which her
$4.50 was refunded. She asked the
Bon Marche if the store would lose
anything for refunding the money
and the man in charge said: "We
don't expect to."
Acted in Good Faith.
"I think the Bon Marche acted
in good faith in taking the agency,"
said Mr. Lacy. "I recomimepded
this manner of giving presents to
the boys to several of my friends
because I believed that Harrod's was
an absolutely reliable store. I know
the store because I was formerly a
British subject. My home used to
be in Dublin. It is an awful disap
pointment for young boyswof this age
not to get their Christmas presents,
especially while at. war. The fact
that my son got his package late
was almost worse than him not. get
ting what I ordered and paid for."
Private Lacy had a similar experi
ence with a Christmas package sent
to him from Detroit, Mich., through
Hudson's department store of that
city. He received a. can of spag
hetti and a can of "corned willie."
Mrs. Lacy said that she knows that
the person must have paid at least
$4.50 fbr it. Private Lacy, in an
other letter to his mother, dated
Dec. 31. 1918, told of tlhis incident
as follows: "I didn't get the box
from Harrod's. It. must have: been
lost, but I .did get one from Alice
Burrell of Detroit, and guess what
it contained one box of spaghetti
and one can of corned willie."
Mirs. Lucille Brickwell. 1523 East
Sixty-third street, ordered for her
son, Private Brickell, a former Uni
versity of Washington student, a
Christmas package through the Bon
Marche, paying $7.50 for it. She or
dered candy and a luncheon box.
Private Brickell got a Christmas
package all right, but what it con
tained is taken from a letter she re
ceived from him, which was dated
Dec. 24, 1918: "Yesterday the pack
age came from Harrod's and I thank
you ever so much for the articles
contained. I wonder how much this
cost you. .The things it contained
were as follows: Two cans of Van
Camp soup, three little boxes of
bouillon cubes, two cans of sardines,
six 0. D. handkerchiefs, and a stick
of shaving soap and a bar of Eng
lish chocolate. Pretty bum imitation
of American candy. Although you'll
see it's crude in Christmas contents,
it seems good to me, as I know you
Private Brickell had been ill in
a hospital for six weeks and lived
on soup while sick, according to his
letter. Thei Bon Marche also re
funded Mrs. Brickell her money.
Many women have demanded their
Iponey back from the Bon Marche.
Beatrice Barron, who lives at the
Phi Mu sorority house in this city,
ordered a box, costing $5.10,
through Fraser-Paterson Co., for her
brother', Private Barron, 19 years of
age. Farser-Paterson Co. also acted
as agents for Harrod's. Private
Harron informed his sister that he
never received the box. Fraser
Paterson Co. refused to refund Miss
Barron her money, on the ground
that the store's responsibility ceased
after she gave the money to the
United States postal autorities.
Send Any Old Thing.
Private Stevens' mother, Mrs. B.
F. Cordell, 1531 , Ninth avenue, or
dered a package for her son through
the lion Marche at a cost of $4.25:
The boy's letter is self-explanatory.
"t'obhlez, Germany, January 23,
1919--My Dearest Mother: I re
ceived the package from London you
sent. and of course was pleased to
gRt it until it was opened, and then,
the same old story. Those people

nuts, cake and so on, but instead of

things it had a can of corned beef,

"1 don't know what mine was sup
posed to have, but this is what it
contained: A box of graham crack
ers, a can of sardines, a can of some
kind of fish paste that a dog wouldn't
eat, and a can of apricots. So
don't give them any more of your
money. I appreciate the spirit in
which it was sent, but there's no use
letting those people get rich off tile
people in the states like the Y. M. C.
A. did. I had a package from a
girl in Seattle tonight, sent through
those people, and it was the same
old story-it didn't contain half as
inuch as yours."
