“One flag, the American flag; one lan
guage, the language of the Declaration of
Independence; one loyalty, loyalty to the
American people.”
—Theodore Roosevelt
The meeting of the Council of the League
of Nations, held at San Remo, adjourned
about two weeks ago. The United States
of course sent no representative, but as
George Creel was not there and the cables
■were not in control of Mr. Burleson, the
people of the United States have been in
formed to some extent as to what trans
pired. It is said that the Council com
pleted a treaty with Turkey, that a pro
posed settlement of the Flume controv
ersy was sanctioned, that Great Britain
was given a mandatory over Mesopotamia
and Palestine, and that France was given
a mandatory over Syria. These are but
side issues when compared with the vast
ly important matters which must be set
tled soon or late, and to which it does not
appear that the slightest consideration
was given. It was acknowledged by all
that Germany had entirely failed to meet
several of the most important obligations ■
of the treaty. One would suppose that j
the High Contracting Parties who have '
assumed to be a universal peace insur
ance company would deal vigorously with
a nation which has disturbed the peace of
the world more than any other nation
ever has done. Instead, however, they
prepared and sent to Germany what we
suppose they considered to be a diplo
matic note, in which they said, among
other things: “the unity of the Allies for
the execution of the treaty is as solid as
it was for war.” All intelligent persons
who read the newspapers with open
minds, know that the above statement is
sonorous Buncombe, nothing more. We
have no doubt the Germans received it
with undisguised and derisive laughter.
The note also warned Germany that if
infractions of the treaty continued the
Allies were resolved to “occupy an ad
ditional part of German territory.” If
England, France and Belgium believe
that the United State , Italy and Japan,
are unitedly solid with them on that
proposition their optimism is indeed ex
uberant. The note also extends an invi
tation to the German Government to
send representatives to join with repre
sentatives of the Allies in consultation,
and this week Premier Millerand of
France is in conference with Lloyd
George trying to agree upon what they
shall say to the German representatives
when the meeting with them is held.
We fail to see any evidence of Allied
united solidity in this situation. The
facts are that the United States was solid
for the war. She has 23,OOP of her best
buried in the Argonne cemetery and
thousands more are buried elsewhere in
France. Her sacrifices in blood and
treasure made possible a victory over the
Central Powers. She will not send troops
to Europe to enforce the treaty nor to
govern Armenia as the San Remo repre
sentatives there assembled blandly sug
gested. She will pass these responsibili
ties along to those powers which have
profited so greatly by her sacrifices and
who have by the treaty taken to them
selves a very large part of the African
continent and are reaching out for all the
cash indemnity which they think Ger
many can pay. Japan is interested in
Shantung which was given her by treaty,
Articles 156, 157 and 158. She has no in
terest whatever in any of the other 437
articles. Italy will send no troops to in
vaoe Germany. Even England, watchful
always for trade and commercial power,
is more interested in placating Germany
than she is in the execution of the gen
eral terms of the treaty. France and
Belgium are the only Allied nations which
are unitedly “solid for the execution of
the treaty as they were for the war.” If
the League of Nations is to be of any
benefit to the world it must be truthfu
in its statements, honest in motive and j
vigorous in action. A few more meet- i
ings like that at San Remo will be fol
lowed by its demise.
Deportation has fallen flat. The De
partment of Justice and the Department
of Labor have been at loggerheads about
this from the first. Secretary of Labor
Wilson has ruled that the Department of
Justice has no right to deport some 1800_
who were arrested last January, and they
have beer discharged. It seems rather
strange that the Labor Department’s in
terpretation of the law should overrule

A Letter From the Sunny South
St. Augustine, Fla., April 30, 1920.
The delightful Florida weather which has
been in cold storage all winter has at last
been turned loose on the market, and
the supply of days and nights when the
mercury registers eighty degree's and
over is largely in excess of the demand.
While we are forgetting and forgiving
! the cold shoulder Florida turned on us
! this winter we cannot say enough in
praise of the beauty and interest of this
j delightful old city. As a rule its climatic
! conditions leave nothing to be desired.
The Atlantic ocean is but one mile dis
tant, and every half hour one can enjoy a
pleasant trolley ride of perhaps twenty
minutes to the smooth, sandy beach and
watch the bathers and admire the surf
rolling in.
St. Augustine lies on the banks of the
Matanzas river, which is protected by a
splendid sea wall, built by the U. S. gov
ernment at a great expense and which
provides a delightful promenade.
This river which is fed from tributaries
from the ocean, is salt and has regular
tides. So we are treated every night to
1 a salt sea breeze which is very refreshing
after a hot day.
St. Augustine is one of the most fasci
nating of the southern resorts. Its beau
tiful residences, each surrounded by gar
dens of rare flowers and magnificent
trees, its palatial hotels known the world
over and admired by those whose fat
pocket books allow them to enjoy the
comforts found there, its asphalted
streets, fine pavements and attractive
stores make a charming up to-date city.
But I like the old Spanish section, the
narrow streets where you dodge into a
doorway to let a team pass, the over
hanging balconies and the quaintest old
buildings, the oldest in the United States
filled with the rarest articles, centuries
old, collected from every country on the
Then the never-ending charm of wan
dering through historic Fort Marion is
one of my pet excursions. Its poor old
weather-beaten walls look as though a
modern air gun would level them at one
blow, but probably the time has been
when its guns hit the enemy all right.
At any rate I should as soon think of
visiting Niagara and not looking at the
falls as come to St. Augustine and not
visit the old tort. These are but parts of
! “Ye ancient city.”
It is said by the hotel management
that this winter has been a record-break
er. The number of strangers within its
gates exceeds anything ever known be
fore, but all have been comfortably pro
vided for. The number of persons who
take apartments and do light housekeep
ing are largely on the increase. We
were particularly fortunate in securing a
very desirable house with modern con
veniences, water, gas and electricity.
Prices are way over the top in almost
everything, still we have managed to
keep our sugar bowl well filled.
We are eating strawberries, lettuce,
beet greens, etc., etc.
A motor trip one day took us through
the town of Hastings, the great potato
section of the county. It was a grand
sight, but it would be an impossibility to
make a Pine Tree State farmer realize
the extent of'this industry. For miles
and miles on either side of the highway,
as far as the eye could reach, these pota
to fields are to be seen Some fields had
been dug over and shipped, others were
replanted to repair the damage done by
the February floods and the heavy frosts.
When one sees this tremendous acreage
of potatoes the wonder grows why such
exorbitant prices are asked for the lowly
“spud.” On our trip down here a gen
tleman told us he paid 40 cts. for a baked
potato at one of the leading hotels in
Jacksonville. All sorts of out door en
tertainments are indulged in, among
them street dances, which is a novelty to
a northerner.
A street without car tracks is selected
and roped off, seats are provided on the
pavements on either side the streets for
spectators, and the smooth asphalt street
is given over to the dancers. There is
always a crowd of lookers-on as well as
participants. Some times the company
are masked and the costumes are, well
- indescribable.
The music lovers have had a rare treat
this season, aside from the morning con
certs at the Ponce de Leon and Alcazar
by their fine orchestras. Vessalla’s cele
brated Italian band has given two daily
concerts in the Plaza, and even the cold
weather did not deter the crowd from
I wish our northern friends could see
the beautiful magnolia trees, with their
huge waxen flower and so fragrant; just
now they are at their best. It seems an
impossibility almost to get them they
grow so high. The most feasible plan
would be to take some sort of air craft
and reach down and pick them. A friend
today brought me a blossom. It measures
about 14 inches across, pure white velvety
cups, like a calla lily, and the perfume
fills the whole house. _
A new industry which seems sure of a
financial success is the silk culture. Dr.
Pumphylis, who has worked untiringly
for many years on this question of silk
production, and is familiar with silk
worm culture in Italy and some places in
this country, declares the climate espec
ially favorable for the industry. He has
now 44,000 of the little white worms
which will in a few days begin to weave
their web of prec ous silk. Three pounds
of the silk cocoons will make one pound
of raw silk which sells at from $18 to $20
per pound. He can raise from 150 to 200
pounds of cocoons from one crop, and
weather conditions here are so favorable
that eight crops can be raised during the
year. We have in our garden a mulberry
tree, the leaves of which furnish the food
for the worms. It is a most beautiful,
symmetrical shaped tree with particularly
fine foliage.
The tourist season is practically over,
but the cold weather at the North still
keeps many here. The large hotels are
closed and the stores, many of them, are
displaying the well known placards, “Sell
ing out at cost,” “Closing out sale,” “Last
chance to buy, regardless of cost.” That
is like the “Golden Rule,” very familiar
but seldom used.
Today we hear sugar is 40 cents per
pound. I am afraid the bottom of my ,
sugar bowl will soon show through the
few grains 1 have in reserve. When will
this state of things end?
But I fear my letter is already too long, i
