IT DIDN'T COMlE.
The strike of the railway men did
not materialize. Maybe it was well
that It didn't, but the union heads lead
us to believe that the relief is only
temporary. The result of the nego
tiations with the labor board preced
ing the cancelation of the strike is
claimed as a victory for the unions.
In ether words they -gained more than
the executives and the labor board
were willing to peacefully grant them.
The will for a nationwide strike
seems to remain with them yet. Pos
sibly, however, saner leadership will
prevail and railroad workers may
come to a realization that the country
must have cheaper railroad transpor
tation or no railroad transportation

In more than one recent coimuni
cation the President has made it plain
that the forthcoming conference in
WAshlngton is not in fact expected to
affect the degree of armaments suf
fleently to usher in the plow-share
a4d pruning-hook :period but only
that, by intelligent consultation fol
lofwed by mutual consent, some ar
rangement may be arrived at to stop
the mad rush toward over-armament
and ruinous taxation.
If all the nations were as rich in
available resources as this one, the
peasimists might be right in agreein-g
wholly with the late Senator Ingalls
when lie said "the purification of poli
tics is an irredescent dream."
1lut, fortunately for the .peace of the
world, most other nations are already
taxed to the limit of their resources.
So, that, even though the -world may
not be getting abstractly better any
too faci, there comes in the practical
'question of ability to pay; and n<

NEW FRENCH LINER ARTISTIC
The Paris, Recently Launched, Has
Eleven Decks and Is Like an
A writer in a recent number of Le
Petit Parisien devotes nearly a column
of most poetic prose to the new steam
ship Paris of the French Transatlantic
(company, launched recently at Le
lavre for the New York runm The
Paris is a little , tore than seven hun
dred and sixty-eight feet in length (not
quite as long as the Mauretania), has
11 (leeks, 04 lifeboats and three stacks.
11er weight is 35,000 tons.
While not rualatinl, the new liner is
dlescribied as a wor'k of art. She car
ries a crew of 0064 and about 3,000 pas
sengers. Among the features of her
equIpment are mentioned a terraced
eate and an elaborate children's play
room. The vessel Is an oil burner,
and all the cooking and heating is done
fThe French writer, above mentioned,
observes that the P'aris would do very
nicely as a museum and~ is a "perma
nent, lasting salon of modern French
art." In the grand. drawing room,
lined with mauve woodwork, tihe Pain
ter L~aliqume has employedl a design of
butterfiloes replreseniting the hours,
while ma synibolicnl canvas from die
brush of Albert Jlesnurd 'pays homage
to France an d Ameirlca.
In co-opera't ion withi the citrus
fruit growers of California, the
United States lyureau of chemistry
has been trying for seome years past
to' dlevelop1 methods ivhereby proitable
uses might be found for the enormous
quantities of oranges andl lemons
which now go to waste because unfit
for shipment. It does not pay to ship
to mariket any fruIt that is not first
class anid in pimie condition. Of
waste oranges, called "culls," there are
14,000 tons a year. What shall
be (lone with them? A pairtli aniswer
to the question is furnished by a
score of factories whleh have already
been put in operation for the produc
tIon of marmaladle and jellies. Also,
a profitable mairket has beeni found for
orange oil and1 lemoni oIl, orange
Ivinegar, citric acid andl dried orange
peel. Fresh orange acid is used for
the marmalade, wvhile the oil is ex
tr'acted b~y pressur'e from time skins.
Up to the'- present time all of our
orange oil nnd lemon has come from
Italy and Sicily.
