Are Americans Ready?
THE Herald believes the American people
should be as fully informed as possible as
to all the angles of the Washington conference.
They know the American position and
l>oint of view. They should know as fully that
of other countries which will be represented here,
and especially of Japan and Great Britain. It
is a simple, matter to stand on our own doorstep,
looking out, and say what other nations should
do. It is easy to make rules for others.
But these other nations are standing on their
own doorsteps, looking in. They see. their own
people's needs. If this was an island lying off
either American coast, smaller in area than California,
and with a population of over 45,000,000 people.
we might take a very different view than we do.
The United States must realize the position of
the other countries at the conference; meet them
in a wholly friendly spirit; be ready to co-operate,
and take a full share of the responsibility which the
concessions we demand entail.
The Herald has tried to show something of
the situation of Great Britain and Japan, for,
after all, they are the ones with whom we must
deal. The other countries represented will be but
fringes; they will advise and counsel and they
will agree with any conclusions the three great
naval powers, which have most at interest, can
reach. It is evident that all the governments
will come in a most friendly spirit, ready and
even anxious to reach agreement. But they will
-meet demands with demands. This seems inevitable.
Will the United States be ready to grant these
demands so far as they are vital? Will thif government
be willing to accept its portion of responsibility?
Will the Senate approve such an agreement?
This all depends upon public opinion, and
that opinion can be formed more surely, more
consistently, before the conference than during
its session, when publicity will come in such a
flood as to confuse rather than enlighten, making
prior information quite essential in distinguishing
fact and substance from propaganda.
Americans want peace. They want agreement
on a Far East policy as an assurance of peace.
They want disarmament as an evidence of this
assurance. The one dominant, overwhelming desire
of this country is for peace. It is so earnest as
to be almost the American will. It ii quite as
earnest in Great Britain, France and Italy. It is
a rapidly growing sentiment even in Japan. Her
people are developing a new nationalism; evidenced
in labor organization, in the Kobe strike,
in the woman's movement, that brings a new and
more democratic element to be reckoned with
in national affairs.
The Herald is giving its readers the advance
information on which to base judgment. Specially
prepared articles give the historical background
of the near-divison of China; how each country
has gained footholds there and of conditions which
led up to the open door policy and now to this
conference. Americans must know and See, because
it will largely be their will which will come
from the conference, and this may entail guarantees
amounting quite to an alliance which will dominate
the world for peace as an association of the
great powers. Is the United States ready for this?
If it will make it any easier for Lloyd '
Ge.orge to attend the conference, he might
bring De Valera with him.

HAS anyone the right to be classified as an
educated person? If the definitions of
specialists are accepted, the majority of college
graduates would be unable to qualify.
A well-known naturalist claims that no person
is educated unless he is familiar with birds and
flowers and can read the book of nature. Mr.
Edison does not consider a young man educated
if he can not answer his famous list of questions,
while a writer in a popular periodical says no
person is educated unless he can express himself
.forcibly and correctly in his native language.
Sir Henry Hadow, head, of the music section
of the British Educational Association, declares
a man can lay no claim to being educated until
; he yn sit by the fireside of an evening reading
1 and enjoying the score of a musical classic as
lie would read and enjoy a great poem or novel.
But among the great scholars of all ages have
been tone-deaf people, so incapable of recognizing
the tones of the scale'that had they been comipelied
to master the technicalities of musical

to have heard the music as they read the score.

Perhaps it is inevitable that men who specialize
in certain subjects should exaggerate the importance
of their specialties. But why go so far as to
make a certain specialty the only gateway to the
pastures where the educated browse? Why not
admit there are a few pair of bars and a stile
or two for "the college-trained men and Women
jwho octasionally make a technical slip when
Jrying to express themselves in their native tongue;

BY" their works shall ye know them. The
Woods bill, providing for a merger of the
street railway systems of the District of Columbia,
was approved as amended by the District Committee
before Congress adjourned in August. Representative
Zihljnan, of Maryland, is chairman of
the subcommittee in charge of this bill. The
amended bill was left with him to be printed and
reported out as approved by the committee as
That was six weeks ago. The bill has not yet
been even reported out. It has not been printed.
It has not yet been turned over to the printer.
Jt has not yet been typed in form to report.
It has been in Mr. Zihlman's desk or pocket or
somewhere in fiis possession for six weeks. He
now says he will try to have it ready to report
by Monday, when District bills will Jiave the
right of way.
But he also says he must wait for the return
of Representative Woods,-who is still vacationing.
Why must he wait? He says, because he wants
to confer with Mr. Woods as the author of the
bill, before it is printed. Again why, since Mr.
Woods was present when the changes were made
in his bill and approved by the committee? He
has no power now to alter a word in it nor a
punctuation point. All of Mr. Zihlman's obligation
is to have it reported and go to the printer
exactly as it was approved by the committee,
and he has the record.
Yet so sure was Chairman Focht that this
bill would not be ready by next Monday that
he made up a tentative program of the D,5tr'?
bills to be reported, with this street railway bill
omitted. Is it true that the bill as amended does
not suit the W. R. & E.? Is it true that that
corporation would like to. have it die in committee,
withheld or smothered, and then start over again
in this long-drawn-out contention for a square
deal for the people of this District?
The Herald has not seen the bill as ar endedWe
have not been able to get a copy. We do
not know what it contains. But we do know
that it could have been, and should have been,
reported and printed a month ago, rea y or
action in the House. This would be s"Pp?sed
to follow the committee's action, and should have
followed it. especially as this is the most important
of all the District measures now before Congress.
Some day a Hapsburg will bump up against

A JURY of twelve prominent lawyers, headed
by Edmund M. Morgan, professor of law
at Yale, have issued a review of the Grover Cleveland
Bergdoll case. Their findings give a clean
bill of health in professional ethics to Gen. Anscll
and Col. Bailey, two of Bergdoll's attorneys.
They were instrumental in getting Bergdoll s release
from prison to go. under guard, to hunt
for his pot of gold planted at the end of the
rainbow of freedom.
We have no quarrel over the verdict of these
twelve lawyers. So far as we know them, or of
them, they are men of the highest personal
integrity and we cannot believe they would be
at all influenced by personal friendship and by
any prior personal attachment to Ansell or Bailey.
Constitutionally, we would prefer to believe any
man innocent rather than guilty, or even mere y
somewhat of a credulous ass, than intentionally
dishonest or disloyal.
But if Ansell is to go scot-free with a clean
slate in public opinion?which, so far as we are
concerned, he can, and does-there are two other
men involved in this case who vastly more deserve
the same consideration. These two are Col. Hunt,
who was commandant of the disciplinary barracks
at Governors Island, where Bergdoll was
confined, and Col. Cresson, who presided at the
courts-martial where Col. Hunt was tried and
"ThTs^men have been bitterly condemned; Hunt
for letting Bergdoll go on his wild-goose chase
unhandcuffed and only under guard of sergeants,
and Cresson for finding that he had not been
lax in obeying orders from his superior officer,
which at least implied leniency. Both these men
have splendid records of army service. Both are
officers of unimpeachable reputation. Both have
a. standing among all their fellow officers which
i, gained only by ability, unswerving integrity
and the highest sense of duty and honor.
Both have been besmirched by politics and
prejudice. They have no recourse. They have
no group of prominent lawyers to act as their
defenders. Army rules forbid their speaking for
themselves or going to the public in their own
defense. But. merely as an act of justice they
should have in some form an expression of public
confidence, and The Herald is glad of the opportunity
to testify in their behalf- to a people who
arc not ungrateful and not prone to hastily condemn.
"Rededicating the ideals of America" will
be much talked of on Armistice Day. That is
much like signing a petition. What is needed
is a start at realizing the ideals of America
and three years will have passed with America
still standing back of the "scratch.
If there are 5,000,000 idle men in the
United States, they represent an earning
power of at least $30,000,000 a day, which is
that much purchasing power lost, of over
$9,000,000,000 a year.

Great Britain and Europe are
Just beginning to emerge from the

of the last year or so, according
to Mark Sheldon, commissioner
for Australia in the United States,
who returned on the Aquitania
after three months in Europe.
"As far as I could observe." says
Mr. Sheldon, "there is a realisation

"Concerning consumers' prices,
the retailers have begun to lower
prices. Wholesale prices in many
lines have about reached bottom.

public, however, is very much diminished,
as a result of unemployment.
The complete revival of

few weeks, however, there has been
a better undertone in the export
field because It Is felt In British

most lines has gone the limit in
the way of low prices.
"There is one point In the readjustment

Objects to Tipping.
' To the Editor, The Wa thing ton Herald:
A tip may be defined as a bribe
paid for a service that is already
| paid for in another way. The main
objection to paying a tip is the
uncertainty as to what amount will
satisfy the person tipped. If you
pay too much he will think you are
foolish. If you pay too little you
are liable to be insulted or neglected.

Disgusted With Arbuckle's
To the Editor, The Washington Herald:
On September 30 I noticed sin article
in reference to the Arbuckle
case. The writer yt xhe Arbuckle
article has no sympathy for the
popular movie star. It is indeed
refreshing to find someone who
does not appear to uphold wickedness
in high places, as it were, but
who ia Justly disgusted with the
carryings-op of such as Arbuckle.
Also I noticed an article in a
paper stating that a large group
of women in the court room stood
up staunchly for the star's escape
from conviction on a charge of
murder. I, too. am a woman?por
am I a so-called "old maid"?but
I fall to understand why any aane
woman should so belittle the name
of "woman" by favoring Arbuckle
or any other man on a serious
charge of this kind, until he has
been proven innocent!
While there is always compassion
in my heart for the poor victim
of the insane desire for wine,

and popularity should have ?o common

crimes, from any cause, whatsoever,

Criticises California Justice. I
To tbo Editor. The W?>hiss?os Herald:
The great State of California I
seems to administer Justice (or Injustice)
with a sublime disregard
for the provtatons of the fifth I
amendment to the Constitution. The
district attorney not only disregarded
the indictment brought by thel
grand Jury In the Arbuckle case,4
but also declarea he lntenda to prevent
the defense from obtaining a
transcript of the evidence on which
the Indictment Is founded. He alao
blames the Judce for refusing to
hold Arbuckle for murder, without!
proof, after he has refused to produce
the complaining wltncas.
Rather high-handed procedure, I
should think. I suppose he knew
the complaining witness. If produced,
would hurt Ms case, rather 1
than help It.
I hold no brief for Arbuckle. nor.
for that matter, for the other members
of the party. They are all
"tarred with the same dtlck." Cer-1
tainly no one was forced to attend
the party. The question is not what
sort of a party It was. so much as
the question of Arbuckle's guilt or
innocence of the charge against
him; and the defendaat should have
