Many sensible people-will wonder what all the excitement of part

Many sensible people; in View of the, present truce in this great "war,

very busy at that time, on' the eve of the inaugural ceremonies of the
succeeding day, might find difficulty giving the parade the proper pro
tection. This is no more convincing. It sounds like a confession,
, which so excellent and successful
not to find necessary, of the inefficiency of the force.-
Pennsylvania avenue is the natural and obvious place for such a
parade. A few weeks agoy many .thousands of women paraded on Fifth
' avenue in New York; a thoroughfare
cars, is only about half as wide as Pennsylvania avenue, and accomo-
' dates, normally, an immense traffic. The parade was orderly, splendidly
organizedand managed, a complete success in every way. There was
far 'less suggestion of disorder about it than there would have been
about an average parade of a men's organization. The women demon
strated a capacity for behaving themselves and also for taking care of
themselves, that afforded a good example to men's demonstrations of
the like character ?ij? ?. ? v
, "The womenho, are arranging' this affair frankly say they don't
Sylvester suggests. Why should they? Pennsylvania avenue is good
enough, despite its traffic and other conditions, for parades of all sorts,
almost every day of the year. It is the one and only thoroughfare in
, Washington on which such" a demonstration ;can be given all the senti-
' ment and significance of -a fittmg'and most effective setting. Certainly
the Avenue is more satisfactory, from the standpoint of traffic condi
tions, and of its greater width, than F street, its only possible rival,
could be. More than this, Pennsylvania avenue will be dressed for the
great inaugural parade of the next day. Decoration and illumination
will be prepared and ready.
J, It is difficult to believe that there is reason for the metropolitan
: police establishment'of this town to fear the responsibility of handling
a parade of women. We know no city in which the business of deal
ing with such affairs isKl)y reason of their frequency, more a matter.
o course with the police:' The fear that the ladies have in mind to
"rough house" the occasion does not impress us as serious. The Times
is willing to risk the chance that any of them will smash in its front
windows or pour tar into its mail boxes. I n fact, The Times decidedly
feels that n6 adequate reasons have been given for refusing the per
mit. Jt thinks that 'just 'an attitude as has been assumed in this in
stance is decidedly .calculated to exasperate the women and other
people as well and encourage any disposition that may exist, to adopt
English methods in the suffrage propaganda.
the public domain of the. United States belongs to the people of
the United States. It does not belong to the States within which it
is" situated: It never did.
By statute law and historical custom it- is the property of all the
people. By statute law and by historical custom it has always been
administered for the nation at large by the national government.
Neither the logic of any political doctrine nor the- necessities of
existing conditions call for, or justify, either a total abandonment or a
partial curtailment of that system of national administration.
But an effort is being made amongst some of the politicians in
Washington to transfer the absolute control of the public domain to the
several States in which it is located. And that effort is being sup
ported by some of the local politicians of those several States.
Against the success of that project the protest should be wide
spread, emphatic and effective.
,The public domain includes immense areas of homestead land, coal
land, phosphate land, land reserved to protect water power sites, recla
mation projects and the national forests. It is distributed over about
fourteen States but the bulk of it is in eight of them.
It includes over seventeen million acres of coal lands with a
minimum, or developmental value of 296 million dollars and an esti
mated, marketable value of more than 742 million dollars.
It includes 4,600,000 acres of oil lands.
It includes 5,200,000 acres of phosphate lands.
'It includes 1,800,000 acres reserved to protect water power sites.
It includes 192 million acres of land designated for homesteading.
It includes 165 million acres of national forest reserves.
The public domain of the United States is the treasure house of
the people. It represents Opportunity for the pioneers of today. It
is a trust held by the Nation for the coming generations of men.
It was the legitimate property of the people of the United States
before the States in which it is now situated were created by Congress.
When those States were created it was specifically reserved as the
property of all the people to be continued under the administration of
the national government.
And it must continue, to be administered and settled and devel
oped and disposed of by "the national government so long as one of the
duties of that government consists in 'the protection of the common
property and common, rights and .common 'opportunity of all the people.
The conservation policies of 'Theodore Roosevelt wrote across the
public- domain of the people of the United States "Thou Shalt Not
Steal" and it is inconceivable that Woodrow Wilson will ever be a
party to the obliteration of that text.

of New York Slate can get one in a
hurry by consulting "FIngy" Connors, or,
in a more dignified way, from President-elect
Wilson. They both agree.
In the four days William Sulzer has
been governor of New York State he
has reorganized, or rather restored, the
national guard, started the most search
ing Investigation ever made of the
State departments for the purpose of
disclosing graft and In efficiency, and
proclaimed himself the Democratic
leader of the State.
Woodrow Wilson agrees with the gov
ernor that his recent election to the
office of governor of New York has
conferred upon him tne position of
leader of the Democratic party. A
telegram to that effect has been re
ceived by Governor sulzer, who de
clined to make It public.
"Fingy" Connors gave expression to
his views after an Interview with Gov
ernor Sulzer. Asked what he thought
about the governor as State leader, the
erstwhile State chairman said:
"There is no doubt about what the
governor means, and he means it, too.
He Is the real State leader."

OCCUPATION FOR THE NEW
Regulations Declared More
Stringent Than Desired.
Numerous changes in the new traffic
regulations for the District will be pro
posed to the Commissioners if the mem
bers of the Federation of Citizens' As
sociations carry to the authorities the
Ideas presented at the meeting of the
federation last night. The matter was
brought before the association by the
report of the committee n legislation
on the resolution referred to it at the
last meeting of the association asking
for more rigid regulation ortuitomoblles.
Tho committee reported that the Com
missioners had already enacted into law
regulations even more strenuous than
TVere asked for lnthe resolution, and
asked that the action of the Commis
sioners be approved with thanks.
Finally Adopted Report.
Some of the members opposed the
committee's recommendation on the
ground that the report did not carry
with it the text of the new recommen
dations; others suggested changes in
the regulations as they had seen them
In the daily press and others favored
the adoption of the report. Some ad
mitted they knew nothing about the
new regulations. The motion to adopt
the committee's report finally carried
by a vote of nine to four.
A resolution asking for a "Jim Crow"
law for the District was referred back
to the various associations for them to
express their attitude. A resolution ask
ing the Commlslsoners to grant the
Uie of public school buildings for other
than strictly school purposes was adopt
ed with the restriction that such meet
ings are to be non-political, non-religious
and made up of people who reside

The legislation committee recommend
ed that the resolution opposing a quali
fied verdict for the District be opposed
by the associations, be not adopted. The
association adopted the resolution, thus
binding Itself to neither side of the
question. The same committee reported
favorably on the advisability of having
an Indeterminate sentence In the Dis
trict, and the report was received.
It was urged by William McK. Clay
ton that the proper committee use its
utmost influence in behalf of securing
from Congress increased appropriations
for streets and police protection In the
suburban section. A resolution favoring
an Inheritance tax for the District was
carried over until thonext meeting, the
legislation committee having reported
adversely on this resolution.

CONTROL OF FORESTS
WILL BE FEATURED
Sharp Division of Opinion Likely
to Be Expressed at Convention
of National Association.
Vigorous debate on ,the question of
continuing Government control bf for
ests will characterize the thirty-first
annual session of the American Forestry
Association. The convention begins
Thursday at 1 p. m., at the Willard.
The American Forestry Association is
strongly in favor of continuing Federal
control of the national forests, but
speakers against this policy are likely
to be heard and. Inasmuch as a sharp
division of opinion on the question 'is
almost certain to be manifest in Con
gress this winter, the debate before the
convention will have more than passing
It is said that 'a determined effort
will be made at the present session of
Congress to enact a bill taking the
forests away from the Government ana
giving them to the states. Certain mem
bers of the American Forestry Associa
tion are ready to denounce this as the
scheme of private interests aided and
abetted by certain Congressmen.
The list of speakers at the convention
Includes some of the best known names
on conservation subjects. Among the
speakers will be Secretary of the in
terior Fisher, former Chief Forester
GIfford PInchot, Charles Lathrop Pack;
president of the National Conservation
Association: Chief Forester Henry S
Graves, and Dr. Henry S. Drinker., of
Delegates from each State are expect
ed to be present.

For U. S. in Argentina
Great opportunities for developing
American trade with Argentina are
seen by Charles M. Pepper, one of the
State Department's foreign trade ad
visers, who is well acquainted with
South American conditions.
He points to Argentina's great agri
cultural Interests as a tremendous fac
tor In her buying power, and believes
the consumption per capita exceeds that
of any country.
Mr. Pepper favors getting closer to
Argentina by means ot steamship facili

not only will the new President have a.
