As a starting point for the "open door" discussions today the delegates of the other powers represented in the Far Eastern committee had be fore them for consideration a con crete "definition" of. the American view of what constituted an effective application of this principle. This was supplied them in textual form yesterday by Secretary Hughes, aft er opening the debate with a reaf firmation of the . American "open door" policy in China, and was un derstood to have been based on the secretary's note of last July to the Chinese minister here concerning a wireless concession to the Federal Telegraph company, an American corporation, its rights in which were disputed by other powers. The Chinese and Japanese contin ued today their effort to clear away collateral points involved in the Shantung settlement pending a final attack on the central problem of con ditions for restoration to China of the Tsingtao-Tsinanfu . railway. Meanwhile, until the Shantung issue is settled and both sides indicated today there were enough things yet to be discussed to occupy many meetings more the tar Lastern committee, at the suggestion of Sec- retayr Hughes, is still deferring con sideration of the Chinese request for committee action on the famous twentv-one demands" and also of the question of spheres of influence. In addition to these questions, the conference, having proceeded on the declared policy of disposing first of subjects upon which agreement ap peared easiest, has yet to take up the more difficult questions of Manchu ria and the Japanese occupation in Siberia. Although professing confi dence in the outcome, most of the delegates privately concede that the conference may be facing the most critical stage of its entire course, i FORD'S OFFER IS NOT MATTER FOR WEEKSTO DECIDE National Defense Act Provides Congress Must Make Deal Burch Jury Stood Ten to Two for a Murder Conviction More Delay While Poli ticians Jockey Wtih Lobbyists (By Aaaoclated I'rl Washington, Jan. 17 Secretary Weeks' decision to submit to congress all offers invfojvjng Muscle Shoals was analyzed today by law officers of the war department and found to be im strict compliance with the pro visions of the National Defense act, which authorized the government to acquire properties and build plants during the war. Under the expressed injunction of congress written into that law, it was said, it is impossible for Secretary Weeks to have accepted or rejected the offer of Mr. Ford, with a yes or no answer, or to have taken any oth er than he didiro deciding to refer the question to congress for decision.

It was declared that continued slaughter of the birds might cause their ex tinction. The quail abound in the pampas, where they are hunted and killed with long whips, the hunters in many cases riding the birds down with horses They are fatter than partridges and are considered a great delicacy.

"There is now pretty nearly unl versal agreement that no single public improvement has done in re cent years, or will do in coming years more for the general good of the country than the development of our highway system," -President Harding's letter said. "The task an enormous one, but better meth ods, both in physical construction and in the relations of the commu nity to highway development, has been taking form in a most 'encour aging way."

Not a Car Rolling in Richmond Today (By Aaaoclated Preaal Portsmouth, Va., Jan. 17. The sec ond day of the strike of platform employees of the Virginia Ralway and Power company here found the city without a single piece of rolling stock moving at 9 o'clock, the two cars which yesterday operated inter mittently on a suburban line re maining in the barns. Civic bodies here have begun to take notice of the situation with the Methodist Ministers' association of the city adopting strong resolutions calling upon city officials to investi- giate fully the difficulties between, the company and the men. and city council summoned to special session today ot decide a definite attitude for the city. Jitney buses, under police super vision, today were operating to all parts of the city and suburban sec tions on regular schedule. In the reduction in freight rates the farmer will this year save 18 cents per barrel to New York over the rate of last year. Based on the average shipments for the years 1919, i920 and 1921, which was 2.829 cars, or 578,400 barrels per year, this represents a saving of $104,112. On barrels the cos tis 25 cents less each and the saving will total $144,600, and fertilizer this year cost $20 per ton less than last. This item alone represents a saving of $300,000, making a grand total of saving to the farmer in the production and marketing of potatoes of $548,712. Labor Not Figured In. Labor this year cost considerable less, but this is not figured in the saving above. Other items of ' ex pense entering into the growing and marketing of potatoes are material ly reduced and thus it can be seen that if an average crop of potatoes is grown and a reasonable price is received for them the farmers will make some clear money? The figures given out by Mr. Clow are arrived at after close investiga tion and economical figuring and are considered authentic. It simply means that the Hastings potato farmer is in the neighborhood of half million dollars better off this year than in any year for three years past, and this, together with the present prospect for good prices, is indeed encouraging. The item of freight comes out of the farmers' pocket as well as fer tilizer and barrels. In fact, they are terns that the buyers of potatoes never consider when they go to pur chase. They base their prices on demand almost entirely. If the de mand is brisk they are willing to pay good prices and if not they pay ac cordingly, thus it will be seen that the reduction in cost of freight, fer tilizer, labor and barrels is actually saving to the grower. According to records of the Flor ida East Coast railroad in 1919 there was 3,097 cars, or 739,400 barrels, shipped from this section. In 1920, ,962 cars, or 592-400 barrels: in 1921, 200,160 cars, or 403,200 bar rels. This does not include probably 50,000 barrels shipped by water. These figures represent the yields in a flood year, a normal year and a dry year, and it is upon them that the savings for 1922 are based. So far this season the farmers have had splendid weather, and if it continues for ninety days longer the yield will be normal. It is general ly estimated that 15,000 acres will be planted this season. i Wanted: 10,000 Carloads of Snow for Ski Jumpers By Associated Press 1 Cary, 111., Jan. 17. Wanted: Ten thousand loads of snow to make win ter sports possible. With the national ski tournament only five days away, and no snow on the new slide here, members of the Norge Ski club ihave arranged with the Northwestern railroad toave the required amount of snowjjfought from the nearest Iowa point where snow lies. sA many trains as are necessary will be pressed into service by the road to avoid postponement of the contests. Men from many states and three foreign countries will jump in the meet. The new slide is one of the largest in the world.

VOLUSIA STIRRED UP OVER BIG JAIL DELIVERY OF FIVE Eight Prisoners Escaped, But Three Are , Captured THRILLS GALORE WHEN MISS JAEGER GOES UP TO Garment Makers to Resume Work BOX FACTORY BURNS. ; 1ST AaMtUtN Preaal Philadelphia, Jan. 17 Fire today destroyed the paper box factory ef Albert Fichorn at Hancock and Tur ner streets. The loss was $100,000. (Br Aaaoelateal Press-1 New York, Jan. 17. Fifty-five thousand garment workers of the Metropolitan district were ready to day to resume work in hundreds of shops which have been closed since November, when they struck in pro test against institution of a piece work system. The tie-up came to an end when at torneys for the Cloak, Suit and Skirt Manufacturers' Protective associa tion notified the workmen that the shops would reopen in obedience to an order of the state supreme court. The strikers voted to go back to work. Claims of local merchants that in Miss Stella Jaeger and Professor Walter Raub they have booked a ban ner attraction for the Dollar Days seem unquestionable. If the press notices gathered by Miss Jaeger while carrying out her contracts from one end of the United States to another and if items in the same papers after she had completed con tracts in New York, Ohio, Arkansas, Iowa, Colorado, Montana, California, Arizona and North Carolina may be judged, she is an intrepid perform er, .not even outdine by Professor Raub. .. Miss Jaeger has been in the city during the last few days, and those about town who have discussed her work with her, are taken by the pleasant manner, mild-voiced and re tiring disposition of the young lady. She speaks of a triple drop from giddy heights as mere commonplace, and says she feels much safer afloat than she does in scurrying about Lemon street. She seems to think that when she has been making par-1 achute leaps, ns many as six from one ascension, over a period of twen ty years, as Professor has, that she will be sufficiently proficient to af ford a few real thrills. Miss Jaeger has an interesting collection of photographs showing the crowds attracted to her country wide exhibitions. The bound volume will probably be placed on exhibition in a store window tomorrow. i'alatka merchants are arranging for big business on Friday and Sat urday, when the first of the monthly Banner Bargain Dollar Days will be initiated. Miss Jaeger and her com pany are advertising these days in 11 the surrounding territory. She required of all stores ifnancing her exhibition that they sign a guarantee to make these days real bargain af fairs, contending that she had never disappointed an audience and that she could only do her part in con junction With fitting preparations by the merchants. ' Two local business men have made applications for a balloon ride with Miss Jaeger, but she fears they would do as a prominent movie actor did in the Goldwyn studios in Cali fornia. The scenario provided for the star to be "married in Heaven," and Miss Jager's balloon was the conveyance intended to transport her and the "star groom" Heaven ward. Pictures were taken on the I ground, of which copies are here, and the actor was ready to go aloft. When the word came to cut away the "star" refused to continue, so Miss Jaegar 'malrriedi" a santdbag several thousand feet above Los nA geles. It is possible the local appli cants will take the ride, however.

Twenty-Two States Have Accepted Aid (By Aaaoclated Press) Washington, Jan. 17. Twenty- states already have accepted the fed eral aid for maternity care author ized in the maternity act and its probable acceptance by most of the others has been indicated by state officials, it was announced today by Mips Grace Abbott, chief of the children's bureau of the department of labor and a member of the feder al board of maternity and infant hy giene, charged with administration of the act.
