Washington, D. C.Proposals for
reducing naval strength suggested by
Secretary of State Hughes at the open
ing of the Conference on Limitation of
Armament took the country by sur
The ready agreement with the prin
ciple by representatives of the leading
powers would indicate that there had
been some advance negotiation.
Japan made a reservation that the
naval strength allowed her by the
plan (60 per cent of that of either
America or Great Britain) was not a
fair proportion and England's repre
sentative countered with the proposi
tion that a certain amount of naval
building be allowed to go on continu
ously to keep the navy yards in condi
tion instead of waiting for ships al
lowed to wear out.
If the results of the peace treaty at
Versailles is any test acceptazjjjft. of
the Hughes plan in principle may" not
amount to so much as the public may
After the Hughes surprise, one of
(he clearest things done at Washing
ton for many years, the newspapers
had enough to work on for many days
to come and the diplomats settled
down quietly to secret conferences on
how the Far East should be carved up.
What Hughes Proposed.
The principal points in the plan out
lined by Secretary Hughes were as fol
A 10-year naval holiday with Great
Britain, America and Japan demolish
ing 66 capital ships, built or in proc
ess, aggregating 1,878,000 ship dis
Within 3 months after the agree
ment is made the United States is to
have 18 capital ships, England 22 and
Ships allowed can be replaced when
they are 20 years old but no replace
ment ship it to exceed 35,000 tons.
No naval building is to be undertaken
by these powers on orders from other
Much less drastic regulations are
proposed for submarines, and none at
all for naval air craft or other air ma
chines, and poison gas yet these are
the weapons by which the next war
will be fought.
Under the Hughes plan America
would scrap 30 ships or 873,740 tons
Great Britain 19 ships or 583,375 tons
and Japan 17, or 445,926 tons.
The explanation of the larger
amount to be scraped by America as
compared with Great Britain, undoubt
edly lies in the fact that until recent
ly our government was committed to
a policy of exceeding England's fleet
In 2 or 3 years. Consequently we had
many more ships under construction
and since the first of the year have
spent about a half a billion dollars on
this huge navy program.
FORD WOULD BUY NAVIES.
Henry Ford in an interview given to
a representative of the International
News Service expresses the belief that
the Hughes plan for reducing navies
does not go far enough and makes an
offer to buy all the navies of the world
at their junk value if the nations will
He would then turn the iron and
steel so salvaged into tractors and
flivvftrsa modern parallel to the
scriptural prophecy of swords turned
intp plow shares.
Ford explains that the financing of
this plan would be easy for he is al
ready spending great sums to get his
iron from the ground. He alsc is the
first prominent person to point out
the distress in front of thousands of
workers if the navy limitation goes
Ford would make provision for them
by employing them first to cut up the
ships, and next to turn it into the tools
We can hardly expect Ford's offer
to be considered by the diplomats for
the Powers all want some ships, but it
is likely that the steel trust will have
an annoying competitor in bidding for
the ships to be scrapped. Henry Ford
seems to be set on what Wall Street
would characterize', as a "disloyal"
GARMENT LOCK-OUT IN NEW
The clothing industry of New York
City and neighboring territory is again
tied up with a lockout as a part of the
open shop movement forced by the
financiers of Wall Street.
One June 3, 1921 employers and em
ployees in this industry agreed to
abide by findings of a joint commis
sion, and the employers have deliber
ately broken their contracts. Contracts
appear to be sacred only when labor or
the public lose by them.'
When reproached for this violation
of our business code the leader of em
ployers declared': "We. are the doc
tors now and will give our employees
the kind of medicine that the union
gave the employers in 1919." His ref
erence was to the success which the

An Anti-War Labor Conference.
According to the London Herald, the
International^ Federation of Trade
Unions has arranged a special confer
ence on war to sit at the same time as
the conference of world diplomats is
in session. It will consider the best
measures labor can use against mili
tarism and future wars.
We do not like to see things so
much differently from what appear tc
be the-popular modes, but we must
admit that to us this labor conference
is likely to do more for world peace
than the great, spectacular one in
Washington. President Harding has
been trying to tell us that disarma
ment is undesirable and impossible
and that high hopes must not be built
around it yet so many of us refuse to
come down out of the clouds. We are
always expecting so much more from
political jugglers that they themselves
really want us to expect.
What Harding undoubtedly wants to
do is to break England away from the
Anglo-Japanese allience to our side in
the struggle of imperialism, and the
pow pow gives him a chance to satis
fy the popular clamor for a disarma
ment meeting. Some of us even think
we have a chance of hearing just

NEWBERRY CASE DEBATED.
Consideration of the Newberry elec
tion case kept the senate in all night
session on November 15. The com
mittee privileges and elections brought
in a report over a month ago exonerat
ing Newberry of violating any law and
recommending that he be declared
All that remained to be done was a
vote by the senate approving the com-,
mittee report. Democrats, however,
are opposing such an approval and
charge that the republicans are try
ing to rush the thing through without
consideration while the whole govern
ment and country is occupied with the
conference to limit armaments. Sena
tor Harrison of Mississippi forced the
night session by threatening to read
the committee report of 2000 pages be
fore a vote could be taken.
Everyone admits that Newbery spent
a vast amount of money for grabbing
votes. Senator Stanley of Kentucky
declared that it was a race of the
tin lizzie against a golden chariot.
Michigan courts found him guilty, but
the federal supreme court savod him
from sentence by using the customary
legal reasoning to show that when
congress enacted laws against corrupt
election practices, it did not mean that
they should apply to primary elec
TAMMANY HALL'S METHODS.
Two socialist aldermen have just
been seated in the council of New
York City a few days before their
terms expire. The democratic ma
chine known as Tammany Hall thus
accomplished what the republican ma*
chine did in more spectacular fashion
when it expelled 5 socialists from the

count the ballots fraudulently and seat
its own men. The' socialists, nearly all
poor working people of course, then
had to raise funds to contest the alleg
ed election results. When the recount
showed the two socialists elected,
Tammany Hall used its public attor
neys and judges to delay reports of the
findings for a year and a half.
The socialists are frequently accus
ed of being poor Americans, but experi
ences of this kind can hardly increase
their respect for the honesty and char
acter of their opponents.
til the peoples of the world recognize off Cape Cod by the tanker David Mc-
their brotherhood and refuse to be led

as some students of life hold, war will
always happen because life is a con

at the expense of another, then there
is no hope."

STEWARD LET DOWN LIGHTLY
In View of Silly Assertion, One Would
Have Liked to See Him More
A hotel steward said to be known
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and
for forty years an observer of peo
ple who eat in public dining rooms,
is reported as saying at a convention
of public food purveyors that "Amer
ican women have forgotten how to
cook." The gentleman speaks with
out knowledge of the facts. We may
excuse him only because he has been
penned up in public eating places for
so many years that he has lost all
sense of proportion and lacks facts for
comparison. American women have
not forgotten how to cook. Their
good, wholesome, well-prepared food
for home dining room feeds, and feeds
amazingly well, 80 per cent of the pop
plation. So general is good home
cooking that every man forced by cir
cumstances to get his meals at public
places regards himself as unfortunate
because he cannot always eat at home,
or at somebody else's home. This ho
tel steward is full ofmisinformation.
