In the morning the fliers staged
an attack by bombers on an area

and protected by a squadron
of scout planes.
Owing to the windstorm, many
thrills were included in the exhibition
which were not on the program,

real danger was experienced by the
aviators. Despite weather condi- .

CONSENT TO UMIT
TREATIES DEBATE j
Path Somewhat Cleared
For Legislation by
The Senate's legislative program
has taken on a semblance of order
as result* of a unanimous consent

The agreement, reached yesterday.
results from insistence by the
Democrats that fullest discuss on of
the treaties be perfitted, and means
that the revenue bill, for the early
passage of which there has been ,
pressure, must take second place.
It was made In the face of a de- !
sire of administration leaders to
put through the treaties without
delay. The arrangement was deplored
in high administration quarters
on the grounds that It meant
a slowing up of the whole administration
program in Congress.
Democrats Hold CI ah.
Hut the Republicans were powerless
In view of the Democratic
threat that unless unrestricted debate
was permitted, ratification of
the treaties would be prevented.
The arrangement made, the minority
agreed, would give ample op- s
portiyiity for all discussion desired: 1

Debate on the treaties after October
14 will be limited to one

Before the agreement could be
made. Senator Sterling insisted on
and received assurance that the
conference report on the anti-beer
bill would come to a vote at this
session. He' was afraid, he said,
tlat adjournment would be taken
after the revenue bill and the treaties
were out of tho *ay.

unexpectedly blocked unanimous

Senator Lodge, the Republican
leader. Sterling withdrew his opposition.

During the discussion. Senator
Underwood, the Democratic leader,

"I am authorised by the minority
to say that If Senator Lodge

without reasonable discussion,
he will endanger their ratification,"
said Underwood. 1
In response to inquiries* from

South American Cables
Reserve Board Shows Big
Improvement in Credit
Reports from three source*, each
operating independently of the
others and* covering: different fields,
give promise of relief from the
business depression which has
gripped the nation for the past
)tear or more. 9
Improvements are noted in the
September cables from South America
to the Department of Commerce.
Brazil, Chile. Mexico, Peru and
Paraguay report that stocks of
gcods In warehouses have been
greatly depleted, and indications
point in a resumption of buying In
various lines. '
The .September statement of the
Federal Reserve Board, reaching as
ft does every section of the country,
lends decided emphasis to the fact
that business conditions inside the
nation are on the upgrade and operating
from a sound basis. #
Credit Sltastloa Improve*.
This fact is further borne out in
the report from Armour and Company.
stating that conditions in the
meat packing industry have taken a
distinct and definite turn for the
A noteworthy feature In September
has been the decided Improvement
in the credit situation, states
the Reserve Board report In the
cotton regions liquidation of credit
has been rendered possible by the
marked advance in the price of cotten,
which has carried practically
all contracts above 20 cents a pound.
At the same time improvement In
wholesale and retail trade haa been
expected aa a result of the increase
In the ability of the farmer to settle
his accounts both with banks and
with dealers. The greater abundance
of funds in the cotton raising
districts Is reported a> having been
reflected in larger wholesale trade.
Textile Orders Increase.
The effects of liquidation expected
from the advance in the price
of cotton have not as yet had time
to appear In the condition statements
of Federal Reserve banks. On
the other hand, the advance In
prices, not only of cotton but of
?the? agricultural products has had
*ertafa indirecf results. *
The textile Industry has not yet'
>o?ght freely of cotton at the new
price level which has been estabished.
but such mills as possessed
i stock of low-priced cotton have

In the grain growing districts,
the output has continued to move
Nteadliy to distributing points and
hag also gone abroad Ln considerable
amounts. This grain movement
has been practically the heaviest
on record. Heavy movement of
livestock has also been noted and
prices have weakened.
Advaaej^ la Steel Trade.
While attention has been largely
concentrated on the agricultural
side of business development during
the month, manufacturing has
also continued to show a wholesome
Improvement in many lines.
The advance In iron and steel
trade first noted In August has
teen sustained during the month of
September In certain lines, notably
In pig iron and light products such
as wire and sheets, ln which prlcc
advances have occurred. Although
orders fell In August an advance
has occurred shtoe that time.
Steady Ipcrekse In the numbeis
of men employed has taken place.
In this connection should also bo
noted the improvement of the railway
Railway Eeralagi (tela.
The net earnings of Class I railways
for August were about $70,000.000
and on many lines the.rate
of earnings Is near the level taken
as a standard in the transportation
act. Textile manufacturing
has been well sustained during the
month, and the boot and shoe Industry
has been notably active.
There Is still, however, hesitancy
on the part of distributors to place
forward orders, although a large
seasonal increase In certain lines of
wholesale trade coupled with replacement
orders have resulted in
The end of the harvesting and
crop-moving season may tend to increase
the number of unemployed,
but buch tendency 'Is likely to be
offset by growth in demand on the
part of manufacturing industries,

Railroads have begun to Increase
the number of their employes to
some extent This Is especially
fioteworthy in the Far West and is
tirphaslsed lnr the reports received
from District Ho. 12 (San Francisco,)
where It holds true also of
general public utility undertakings.
The fact that building contracts
reached a record figure for this
jrear promises larger employment
in that direction during the autvmn.
The statement from the meat
packing industry sounds a note of
positive assurance of a turn for the
Skews Up ware Trend.
The month of September has -given
much evidence that tbe meat pack-.
Ing industry has'made a definite
and positive turn away from the
conditions which had b??n depressing
business oMrations over a
period ^Qf a year and more. There
were elements that entered into the
trading during the month which
caused buginess to lose some ofthe

LONDON Sept. 30.?A wart of
profound relief has swept England
and Ireland at the end of the tedious
and delicate process of noteexchanging
between Eamonn de
Valtra and Lloyd George which
has left the proposed peace conference
in London a certainty and
made it an equal certainty that
Lhere will be no reversion to war
in Ireland unless the conference
As Lloyd George, in his final
communication to the Irish leader,
swept away all conditions and ali
"explanations" which would throw
the slightest obstacle in the way of
the corference, so De Valera, in re*
plying, confined himself to a brief
and simple acceptance of the invitation
to^meet the premier "to ascertain
how the association of Ire- I
land with the community of nations

Prefers Nretiag to Xotea.
"Our ^respective positions have
been stated and are understood."
P* Valera replied to Lloyd George.
"We agree that a conference, and
not correspondence, would be the
most practical and most hopeful
way to an understanding. We accept
your invitation and our dele- '
gates will meet you in London on 1
the date mentioned (October 11)."
Throughout England and Southern
Ireland the belief is growing that 1
the cer.turles-long warfare between
hngland and Ireland is approaching 1
an end. Ireland has been offered
more than any British government'
has ever offered her before.
The Two QucMlon*.
A solution depends on two things: !

colonies, such as Australia. South
Africa and Canada ? Will Lloyd

with De Valera. fiad It possible
to reconcile the interests of Ulster
ind those of Southern Ireland without
taking away from Ulster her
new-faund prerogative under the
present home rule act. and without
enraging the Ulsterites?
Though the Irish leaders have
consistently called Ireland a republic
and refused to admit allegiance
to the king or empire. De Valors
has more than once signified his'
readiness to mak* Ireland "a in#?m- j

The problem of Ulster is one of

that within recent weeks the 1*1-1

toned down their attitude or lapsed J
nto silence on the question. Sinn ;

Ulster shall not be coerced.
