Chicago, Sept. 13.---Although at
first the corn market had an upward
slant today, buying power soon be
came exhausted, and liquidation on
the part of discouraged holders
brought about a decided setback, es
pecially in September deliv
cry. Prices closed weak at `
2%c to 91c net lower, with Sep
tember at $1.44 % to $1.15 and Doe
eember at $1.22% to $1.2;. Oats;

visions ranged from $ 1.05 decline to
et rise of 30c.
Temporary appearancer of strength
in the corn market re::ult.d chiefly
trouir higher prices paid for hogs
here. Speculators, however, did
most of the buying of hogs at the
advance. Under such circumlllstarnces,
demand for corn was soont resttric.ted
to r'borts who were i:i posittion to;
collect profits. For thei remainder
of the day bearish sentimet,., was vir
trually unchecked owing in the main
to disturbed economi., and industrial

TESTIMONY OF WILLIAM

chairman, that these opinions were ed
not enthusiastic. ye
Then, from a memorandum of the la
conversation, dictated, he said, while hi
it was fresh in his mind, Bullit th
quoted the secretary on many points, n0
saying that Mr. Lansing opposed the M
award of Shantung to Japan, that fr
he considered the league thoroughly jo
had, that the large nations would A
pay little attention to the small na- N.
tions, and that the world had been I
arranged according to the desires of th
the big nations at the peace confer- mi
The most sensational statement at
tributed by the witness to the secre
tary of state was that, if the senate w
andi the American people know what th
the treaty meant, it would be de- of
Senator Knox really would under- St
stand the treaty, Mr. Lansing said, 1'
according to the witness, and t"Mr.
Lodge would, but Mr. Lodge's post- E
Lion would become purely political." yr
When news of Bullitt's testimony at
spread about the capitol, it was ex- bl
tensively discussed, and senators said in
they were anxious to hear from Mr. Ji
Lansing, When some .of them en- al
deavored to reach him at the state di
department, they found lie was out of
of town, and an Associated Press dis- at
patch later from Watertown. N. Y., 11
said he declined to make any state- 1_
ment and had gone fishing. w
Bullitt, formerly a newspaper cor- o0
respondent, went to Paris with Pres- tl
ident Wilson's party and was at- P
tached to the mission. He .was sum- us
moned to testify before the treaty I]
was reported out by committee, but fi
was in the Maine woods on a camp- p
ing trip and the notice did not reach d
him until a few days ago. This was
explained by Chairman Lodge to w
show why the hearing apparently n
had been re-opened. o
A wealth of information, regarded c,
as more or less confidenttial, was I
given by the witness during his t,
three-hour statement. In February l/
last he was sent by Secretary Lans- .1
ing to Petrograd to bring back from tl
the soviet leaders a statement show- k
ing the exact terms on which they C
would agree to peace. This report.. -
which told, among other things, of s
"good order" established by the bol- A
shleviki. Lenine's desire for peace, o
his readiness to compromise at many a
points in order to obtain it, and his o
promise that all foreign debts of the i
soviet government would be paid.l
never was made public. Bullitt said, I
because the presldept would not F
agree. Lloyd George wanted it c
printed, he said, yet later the pre- j
mier denied all knowledge of it when
questioned in parliament.

The Mahmudiyeh ('anal.
Sept, 13 is the interesting date
alike to students of social economy,
of the labor question, and of rulers
of mankind. On Sept. 13. 1919. the
celebrated Mahmudiyeh canal in
Egypt, connecting Alexandria withl
the Nile, was completed: and com-i
pleted by laborers who reroived ex
actly 17 cents a day during the entire
span of their toil. Seven thousand.
laborers died of contagious diseases
during the digging of the canal. We
suspect that it was tfrom inalnutri
tion, wretched housing and merciless
exposure to the sun of Elypt.
The vast undertaking-- the Mah
nmudiyeh canal-was carried through
by Mohammed Ali. pasha and ruler
of Egypt, under the superintendance!
of six European engineers. One hun
dred thousand laborers were engaged
on the work. The Mahmudiyeh canal
extends from below Soamo. on the
Nile, to Pompey's Pillar in Alexan
drid. It is 47 miles long. 90 feet
wide, and 18 feet deep. Its banks
are bright with picturesque resi
dences of Cairene and Alexandrine n
merchants. Its gandets afford a
pleasure ground for the populace of n
Alexandria. The canal is a lovely,
eastern sight with the three-cornered
lateen sails of vessels scudding before,
the breeze, and the huge gyassas of
the red sails, with fruit and freight
and a few passengers hastoening up to
Cairo. Mohammed All, the builder C
of the canal, was an able but harsh 0
ruler of Egypt.' He arose fromt the
ranks of police to he a captain in the a
Egyptian army occupied with driving a
the French from the soil of Egypt.
From colonel to pasha was an easy
step for this forceful man. On May;
3, 1805, he took possession of the a
citadel of Cairo. He had allied him- t
self with the Mamnelukes, and inflict- C
ed two defeats upon the British. Here o
a frightful blot stains his career. He
invited the Mameluk beys to Cairo---
where they and their followers weret
treacherously massacred in the cita- I
I The decay of the once renownedI
seaport of Alexandria was ably avert
ed by the building of the Mahmudi
yeh canal. Mohammed All had en
larged the harbor of the city. But !I
his chief trading gift to Egypt was
tie construction of the canal. He
named it after the reigning sultan.
Mahmud II. Through this channel
from Alexandria to Cairo the ad
joining fields were irrigated. Again'
Alexandria was connected with the
Nile and the rest of Egypt whose',
products had only found outlet s!
through the Rosetta and )Damiettai
mouths of the river.
There have been just a few princes Pt
who have thought of other things w
han self-glorification, at the expense
if the laborer's split veins. JohnSi
Plantagenet was one of these. Today, tL
Sept. 13, commemorates his death in gt
He was the brother of lHenry V. of et
England--that merry prince in his
youth who rioted with Falstaff, and e3
tround whose life, courtship and tr
bluff valor Shakespeare wrote his cl
immortal historical play, "Henry V." k'
John Plantagenet, duke of Bedford it
and regent .of France (for at that tl
date England and France were at tl
odds--woeful odds) was the most 11
accomplished prince in Europe. Ini
1809 a statue was erected to himi in 3i
Russell square, London. The tourist B
will recall that Russell square abuts C
on the British museum. Fitting, d
therefore, that the statue of John v
Plantagenet should be under the "'
nighty shadow of the arts and sci
ences, for, in the early days of the
fifteenth century, John Plantagenet

don the royal library of Paris.
lie called himself. be it observed,
with modest pride,. "John Plantage- iI
net." Pause and consider the value
of the surname, Plantagenet. Of ex
ceedingly humble and simple origin
was this proud patronymic, applied
to a dynasty of English kings from
Henry II., 1154, to the accession of
the house,of Tudor, 1485. Amoug
the more illustrions Plantagenet
kings were Henmy II., Richard I.
Coeur de Lion,) John Lackland, and
Henry V. The Plantagenets were de- I
scended from Geoffrey of Anjou (the
Angevins), a knight who had a habit
of wearing in his helmet the plante- i
a-genet, the humble broom, a plant
of the fields. And it arose into royal l
significance in the name Plantagenet.

The Czecho-Slovak and American
olicies presented a decided contrast
a those of the other a4lies.
On Nov. 21. three days after Kol
hak's coupl d'etat, the following res
lution was passed by the Czecho-Slo
ak national council, in order to put
stop to conjectures respecting its
ttitude toward current events, here
"That. the Czecho-Slovak army, A
rhich is fighting for the ideals of lib
nrty and the self-government of ha- T
ions, cannot and will not co-operaL.e

vhich is perpetually opposed to such H
deals. The change of the 18th of
ýovemnber at Omsk has subverted the 9
cry foundation of that principle of
aw and order which must be the be- ti
,inning of every government." b
The reader will remember it was -
)roposed, largely through the efforts 1
)f President Wilson, to invite repre
sentatives of all the Russian political a
actions, including the soviet repub- V
ic of central Russia, to a conference
it Prince's island.
Kolchak took fright at this, and
iddressed a message to his army, inl
which he declared his uncomlpromis- 1
ing attitude--thhe Russian' people
would not deign, he said, to treat k
with infidels and outcasts-the mis- \
,ion of the army was to rescue the -
holy religion-to purge the land, etc. F
Anyone acquainted with the language
of the black hundred of imperial c
Russia can easily imagine the rest.
General (Graves thereupon ex- -
pressed the opinion that if Siberia
were to be adequately represented at
Prince's island, those groups of the
Siberian population who considered
the Kolchak government illegally or
ganized, must be allowed to send
delegates as well as the Kolchalk gov

leneral Graves sent American sol- j
iers to intercede in behalf of the

Unlder these circumstances it was -
