1 THE PACIFIST PRICE
Hi I 1 China and Japan were allies in the war.
H China declared war on . Germany. The
1 1 J Chinese coolies .in France did more to-
Hj I ivrd winning the war than the Japanese
Hf a did. There was an army of Chinese work-
H i ers in France, releasing fighters and
H getting paid for it. There was no Japan-
H I cse fighters or workers anywhere near a
H iield of operation in which success count-
H 1 cd for anything.
The purpose of this editorial is to' point
H tutafew very 'unpleasant truths not to
m sympathize, with theJShinese. It is only
1 fair to ksay that they did more for the al-
Ilies than the Japanese did for" the allies.
But the Chinese are "Chinks." The Jap
anese are Japanese.
The Shantung peninsula contains the
power to 'dominate northern China. The
Tjeace conference haa given it to Japan-It
was taken from China by Germany. It
Avas taken frtim Germany by Japan. Ja-
pan fought Germany to get Shantung. It
1 defied. the victorious world and keeps
M i Shantung. .
H 'The Italians said'much' iri Pans for
H many days ,and they are not giveivFiume
1 I -wjiich was enemy territory. The Japanese
j said nothing, except for about two hours,
!,and they get Shantung, which is allied
o Japan is feared. Italy is not China is
nil i helpless. Japan is strong. When Japan
aisks for something, the rest of the vyorld
B ascertains, first, how much the Japanese
H want it, and second, how much it would
H j ost to keep them from getting it. Japan
H usually gets it.
China is a pathetic figure, we'll say. A
nation of 300,000,000 or 400,000,000 so
Taig that a matter of 50,000,000 here or
H f there does not matter cannot do any-
I thing other than raise .a cry of outrage in
J the world court because a little, hard mus-
, t ' cledrdetermined nation is imposing on it
i Japan can fight; China can only weep.
China is the giant; Japan, the killer. Ja-
pan is a kingfisher; China is a buzzard.
I I China is rich in resources and population;
slfi! Tnrnn io nnnv in vpRniirp.pts mid limited as
I to men. But Japan has only to throw a
mall shadow on the shore of China, and
China has nothingxto do except to appeal
I to the rest of the world to keep the Jap
anese from treating the Chinese as the
Japanese have treated the Coreans. There
bbm I r is an excuse for Corea. It is small. Chi-
j f na is the largest nation in the world. But
Ji it is a nation of pacifists.
H j I ;'The Chinese are not unwilling that a
I Brutal nation should keep another brutal
' nation off them or that a strong nation
I a should keep another strong nation off
I II' I them. They objected to the occupation of
I J jf the Shantung peninsula by Germany;, but
jj I they could not do anything to prevent it. .
Hi I They were not unwiling that Japan
1 1 Should declare war upon Germany and
I I I dispossess Germany of the possessions on
I the Shantung peninsula, providing Japan
II having made the sacrifice in men to take
I I ihe fortified places, should be willing to
If r f turn the Germanized portion back to
1 1 China.
III China could not keep the Germans out.
J hina could not put them out. China can-
not make a compelling demand upon Mr.
Wilson that he ofend the powerful Japan
! ; L f ese by throwing the weight of the Amer
Mlh ican power behind Chinese demands.
mm The Chinese are right but weak. The
1 1 I virtue of their cause gets them nothing.
I II i Their weakness defeats everything. It.
lit 'defeats them in the altruistic court of de-
1 mocracy. That court, at Paris, yields to
expediency and to the power of the Jap-
Why blame the nations which might
"have war, sooner or later, with a combin
ation, formed by Japan if they did not
jteeptiie "strong ally satisfied, even if
they had'to throw all principle overboard
in deserting the weak ally?
God is not the only power helping them
who help themselves. China betrayed it
self to pacifism and, a potentially mighty
power, can only ask that other nations ex
tricate it from the grip of a nation not
much larger than the land it carves .out of
the helpless giant, unprepared and help

Germany at the bar is as arrogant as
Prussianism undefeated. She talks with,
the bravado displayed in the rape of Bel
gium, forgetful for teh moment that the
iron heel has been filed close to the, ten
don of Achilles. Her statesmen complain
that the peace terms are humiliating,
that they spell the doom of Germany. Did
they expect to escape with a scolding and
a license to try again?
' The crimes of the past four years de
manded stern treatment. No punishment
'that left the breath of life in the German
government could be too severe. But Ger
many whines and even threatens ! Never
theless she will accept terms or destroy
herself on the rocks of revolution. She
cannot escape the penalty. No matter
what her choice, the ultimate result is the
same. Prussianism is .destroyed., and
Germany can begin anew with a little, as
allowed by the peace treaty, or with noith
.ing,. which is inevitable with a decision in
favor of revolution.
In spite of the universal desire to see
Germany shackled and hound, 'the situaj
tion is reflective -of the entanglements
.which have been invited for America.
The German ire js nto directed against
the allies'; it is not.fasten2d on the'peace
'conference; America alone is Held respon
sible for the humiliating terms imposed
upon Germany. The facts in the case
iwarrant a "different reaspning.and a' dif
As Germany cites, the peace is not-made
strictly in 'accordance with the fourteen
points. That, however, is not the fault of
Mr. Wilson, as is evidenced in the treat
ment accorded Japan, Italy and China, in
the peace conference. But one conclusion
is to be drawn, and that is that President
Wilson did not dictate the terms of peace.
Why then should Germany transfer hert
hatred from Great Britain to the United
States? Surely the treaty is convincing
evidence that we did not advance our na
tional interests by reason of our participa
tion. Yet Germany, claims that it is a
selfish peace, which ought to convince her
that her hatred is misplaced as it is di
rected against America.
Much as we regret the Wilson depar
tures from American tradition we do not
fear the theats which Germany makes at
this time- The allied armies and the peace
conference have removed the Prussian
menace soar as we are concerned. Her
threats toaay can only find expression in
Bolshevism ad that is not a menace to Am
erica, but to Europe and Germany her
self. Salt Lake Herald.

DOUBLE TRACKING A MIND
A fine one track mind has h&ppened be
fore in American politics. In writing the
Declaration of Independence Thomas Jef
ferson did a master's job. When it was a
question of indicting autocratic power
and stating democratic principles in gen
eral terms no man in the world excelled
him. In a grapple with stubborn unphil
osophized facts' he failed. There was a
juncture in the development of America
when Jefferson's generalizing, philosoph
izing literary talent was immensely use
ful. There were other situations in
which the goods to be moved were most
ly over on the other track and he was
not useful. He was. not a Lincoln.
When Woodrow Wilson was a leadinp
candidate for the Democratic nominatior
for president the opposing Democratic
press pictured him in .a resplendant sill
hat, the shiniest of shoes, expansive shirt
bosom and kid gloves as a legend in th
cartoon informed you. At any rate thosi
habiliments were more familiar to hin
than Lincoln's patched homespun. He go
his democracy by reading and refleciton
not by mingling with the crowd at thi
village postoffice. If like Lincoln he ha
been thrust into a hard but genial, a rougl
and ready, but not stunting, pionee
struggle for existence, very likely hi
mind, like Lincoln's, would have developei
another track the one by which th
world gets its living and he WQuld hav
had the same solid sense of vulgar reali
ties. His academic life denied hiifi,tha
"advantage. Saturday' Evening Post. '

The story of Spoktlto, the stuff

Convinced that they had a product
of genuine merit for which there Is
universal need and no rival whatso
ever, the manufacturers of Spoktlto
wore determined that the public
should know about It In the Eldest
publicity. Tney confined their cam
paign wholly to newspapers, which
promptly created the present enor
Imous demand. The moral of alt th'Ji
is: If you have something to sell that
the public really wants, tho best me
dium for results is newspaper adver

company -is thus no secret and tho
saino path to success Is open to all
who have something of genuine mor

themselves of It.
