But, with the Netherlands left out,' it will hardly be a representative conference of the nations interested, either as the looters or the looted, in the real questions of the Far East. Japan will be unusually stupid and dumb if she goes into the conference without the express reservation that she will not -consider herself obligat ed to any of its conclusions with re spect of the Far East. Japan and China and India must, eventually, unite in policy. In the mean while, these peoples should not accept as definite or determining the agreements of those nations of the West that have only an impermaent and temporary hold upon Asiatic soil and souls. IX)PSIDED AND SUPERFLOUS. President Harding's proposed con "ference of nations on disarmament, with a discussion of Far-Eastern questions injected into , the agenda as an afterthought, and not a hap py one, promises to be both lop-sided and superflous. Lopsided, because it will consist of Great Britain with her leash of yelping young bullpups, the United States, France, Italy, and China, ar rayed definitely on one side, with Japan, solitary and without a disin terested friend or counselor, on the other. Such an arrangement does not smack of our famed "Anglo-Saxon" square deal. It will be utterly superflon, be cause, first, as to the question of dis- armament, this is now before the League of forty-odd nations, includ ing all of the participants in Mr, Harding's 'Inew 'association of na tions" at Washington, and could be disposed of by that organization far more effectively than by this petty substitute for the hated "Wilson League". And, second, as to the dis cussion of Far-Eastern questions, its deliberations or proclaimed "princi ples" and agreements can' not blud even the conferees, and will not af fect one of the greatest stake-hold ers in the Far East the Nether lands, with its immediately rich and important empire in the East Indise. It is a curious and motley body, that Mr. Harding and Secreatry Hughes have summoned to Washing ton. Not all the invited nations are interested in the question of disar mament. China is not interested in the least ponderable degree. Italy has not the remotest interest in Far Eastern questions, and is already sneering at the suggestion of disar mament, in view of the work of the League in the same field and with infinitely greater promise of service able achievements. China is profound ly interested in many of the Far Eastern questions, but her role at such a conference is painfully like ' that of the Thanksgiving turkey at the feiist. When the King asks Hamlet, "Where is Polonius?" that wise-mad young prince says: "At supper . . . Not where he eats, but where he is aten." So may it be with China at the Washington conference of her spoil era. What are these Far-Eastern ques tioas, about the discussion of which Japan is, naturally, and with the pro found wisdom of the Orient, some what suspicious and alarmed ? Will thjey, probably, '(include) the ousting of Japan fro mShantung or even Tsingtao, while we stay in the Philippines. France in Tonkin, Eng land in Hongkong and all of them, with Italy, , keep their troops and their own national courts in Pekintr and Tien-tsin and Shanghai?' Will they include the Japanese question in California and Hawaii and not the American question in the Philippines, or the English and Prench questions in China? Will they include the brushing of Japan from the Asiatic continent or mainland, while the other conferec-s cling to their own spoil? Will they include the taking away from Japan certain war-loot that the victors agreed to give her be fore we had beaten down our com " plex against war and were not yet arrived at the point where, accord ing to Harvey, we were "afraid not t fight?" Will they include our insistence upon breaking into the Djambi oil .fields against the desires of the fields against the desires of the Dutch while dropping, for the time, our itch to break in the oil-fields of Briticized Mesopotamia ? And why was the Netherlands not invited? The Tribune says that the presence of the Dutch would "work toward delays and a clogging of the conference machinery." Very Ekeljr, particularly if we are to seek to have accepted . the principle that we have . the right to share in the INTEREST ON POSTAL SAtlNGS The most valid criticism made of the postal savings bank by Postmaster-General Hays, is the low rate of interest it pays. Two per cent is not an inviting rate at any time. In view of the investment rates that have prevailed lately, it is ridiculous, In practice, too, this pitiful return has been cut down to an average of 1 1-2 per cent, because no interest is paid on money deposited less than one year. The government itself has profit ed, as it was never intended to do, by reinvesting deposits at 2 1-2 per cent. The postmaster-general now proposes to raise the interest . rate to 3 per cent, and to pay interest on deposits of less than a year. There can be sound objection to that. Three per cent is low enough, compared with prevalent interest rates paid by the banks, and parti cularly compared with rates obtain able on gilt-edge loans. It is always advisable, no doubt, to keep the rate on postal savings a little loiver than the bank rate, in order to avoid the appearance of un fair competition with the banks. If another of Mr. Hays' suggestions is followed, bank opposition will be con ciliated by the sensible procedure of redepositing funds in local banks, as it was intended to be. 4 The proposed changes would pro Damy redeem this once promising institution from the disrepute into which it has fallen, and give new stimulus to thrift among millions who cannot save money except in small amounts. Their petty savnigs, once accumulated, may yet become a power in the country's finance. Guards Haggle As Station Burns Up (By Akaneiatrd Preaal Vienna, July '19 Frontier restric tions were carried to an extreme when they prevented an J Austrian firebrigade from crossing the Italian border to' fight, a blaze. Some buildings on the Italian side of the Brenner Pass railway station caught fire and the Austrian town's firemen turned out. Italian gen darmes demanded their vises and having none, they ' were forced to watch the warehouses burn. RAIN SHORT CIRCUITS 'PHONES (By Associated Presa) St. Petersburg, July 19 More than nine'hundred telephones in this city were out of commission last Sat urday as a result of heavy rains dur ing the week, the water having seep ed into the cable conduits and short circuted the wires. Trouble men were working overtime to remedy the situ ation but it was said several days would elapse before all the lines would be cleared. The reason we hate an end-seat hog is because he beats us to it. Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands fake their tax returns. And when it comes to making war tongue that rattles frequently is mightier than a sword that rattles. The army and navy bill for 1922 would build 150,000 homes, or keep 1,732 used cars in running order. When we decide what to do with ex-Presidents, perhaps we can find a way to rescue ex-Cabinet members from obscurity. We can't love the man who goes to church and sings "Stand up for Je sus," and then won't stand up for a woman in a street cat. Home", with a great many people, is a place where they can lay aside their uncomfortable clothes and their good manners. The knowledge a college gradual" has in his head does him very little good until he gets the swelling out of his head. The physician who says no fast will prove fatal to a healty man within twenty days probably doesr.'' mean to include Belfast. ing competitors into oil fields. Even the most savage peoples worship some kind of god and make some kind o" alcoholis beverage. As a rule, the, men who get turned down by life insurance, companies come in handy as pall bearers for the men who don't get turned down. We can understand how some car owners get along with so little oil, but it is rather difficult to understand how they get along with so little toil. Palatka or 4arby town. What ve you to offer? P. H.
