It is alleged that vast quantities of
British opium is being smuggled into
the United States to supply the de
mand for stimulants created by pro
hibition. Miss Ellen M. LaMotte, a sincere
and torceful writer with an uncanny
k ancle at getting at the truth of
Hiings and citing facts that disturb
the noise and peace of mind of the
bourgeois is out with a new book
"THE OI'lf'M MONOPOLY." (Me-Milton).
Miss La Motte quotes from tno
Statesman's Year Boole and from vari
ous British documents, which reveal
the information that the British traf
fic in opium In the far east is a
government monopoly, carried out un
ilor a department of opium administ
ration, and bringing a handsome re
venue to colonial governments at the
expense of the hideously wrecked lives
of thousands of orientals.
The trade is not direct from En
plishmnn to addict. To quote Miss La
Motte: "The men who buy this opium
.it these monthly auctions (of the Bri
tish government) and afterwards dis
pose of it. are a curious crowd of
Parse es, Mohammedans, Hindus, and
Asiatic Jews. Few British names op
pear in the opium trade today. Bri
tish dignity prefers not to stoop
beneath the taking in of profits; it
leaves the details of dirty business to
Miss La Motte will be remembered
as the author of "The Backwash of
War" which contained the most re
markable picture of war horrors ever
penned. This book was suppressed
"thru fear of the effect it would have
upon civilian morale." In other words
it was suppressed because it would
never do for the people to learn the
truth about war.

John Mavnard Keynes, a fellow of
King's College, Cambridge, the leading
British authority on gold and repres
entative of the British treasury at

"Economic Consequences of the
Peace" advocates among other things,
the reform of the currency founded
upon INDIRECT REPUDIATION of
internal national debts, cancellation
of inter-Ally indebtondness dating with
in the period of the war. and a
two billion loan!
Ho concludes that an anti-German
uneconomic peace would mean that the
Central powers would collapse first
dragging down the rest of Europe:
that a pro-German uneconomic peace
would mean the collapse of the Allies
first dragging down the rest of Eu
rope; and a neutral uneconomic
peace would mean that all Europe
would collapse together. In his
view the nature of the peace merely
determines which shall go down first:
in the end all will go down, so far as
any treaty of peace is concerned.
