U. S. OFFERS CONCESSIONS
Abandonment of Alliance Between Ja
pan and England Forecast—Under
standing aa to Pacific Peace
Aoparently Reached.
Washington. Secretary of State
Hughes, Arthur J. Balfour and Ad
miral Baron Kuto, after a prolonged
conference ut the State Department,
brought the negotiations of the United
States, Great Britain and Japan upon
naval reduction to a crucial stage,
which foreshadows the announcement
of a complete agreement on every es
sential point.
From a semi-official source It was
hanted (hat the outlook for a navui
! agreement was “very favorable.”
There Is good reason to believe that
the agreement which It Is believed lim
it' >n praclbiilly completed will go fur
ther than an acceptance of the 5-5-3
naval ratio promised by Secretary
Hughes.
There are indications that Great
I’.riliiln and Japan have agr**d upon
Ihe iibamloniiicnt of the Anglo-Jupa
m-Me alliance and the substitution of
an understanding among the United
States, Great Britain and Japan. That
will not ha In the form of an en
tangling alliance, but will be iiih- the
less a guaranty of future peace in the
Pacific. It will be based ujmiii mutual
iinderstandin agml good will.
Future conferences to Iron out any
differences that may arise, with the
understanding that the three leading
naval |mwers will act together to pre
serve peace, are to he the basis ut the
new understanding.
The Anglo-Japancse alliance has
naturally played a most Important pari
In the Washington conference. As tin*
ally of Japan, England would be
obliged to stand loyally by Japan in
support of uny effort Japan might
1 make hers to obtain recognition from
the United States of Japan's special
Interests in the Far East as they arc
represented to be in the terms of the
alliance. The treaty provides for ev
ery necessary consultation between the
two gov *rnments on questions nlTeci
ing the interests of either and which
j are comprehended In the alliance.
Tlie theory of the alliance as an ex
planation cf Ja|ian's position In regard
to naval ratio Is u<*cepte<l In sonic welt
informed quarters, and It has received
support from British Intimations that
It might lie reasonable to give to .la
1 pan certain assurances in order to ob
tain Japan’s adhesion to the naval
; irmnmeats limitation proposal.
! Fon versa I lons between Chinn and
•Inpain on Shantung entered the crucial
singe and were believed to he making
good progress toward complete un
; dcrstnnding.
It was decided that the conference
should tnke up the question o.’ aboil
thin of poison gas In warfare after the
j projected Christmas recess.
DR. COPELAND FAVORS CORSETS
!
Widely Known Authority on Health
States Reasons.
New York. —The woman who favors
the use of the corset may have no fear
of dire physical results, according to
Dr. Itoynl B. Co|ielarid. Health Com
uilssioner of Greater New York, and
the most widely known authority on
general health In America. In reply
I to a query put to him recently. Dr.
i Cojieland said:
“I believe the present style corset,
whin properly fitted. Is of distinct
benefit to Hie average woman. It Is a
I flexible affair, containing no heavy
stiu‘l stays, and covering only the hips
and abdomen. It serves us a brace for
i the wearer and. at the same time, gives
a slight waist line which lends smart
! ness to the figure. It does not Inter
fere with deep breathing, nor does it
! compress or distort tlie organs as did
; the tight-laced corset of years gone by.
I tun sure It tends to trimness and a
1 sense of being well dressed. When a
; woman Is well dressed her mind in at
1 ease, and an easy mind ts conducive
to health.

To Remove Paint From Cloth.
To remove paint from cloth, lava
pad of blott'ng paper on the side of
the material on which the paint fell,
and rub the other side gently with

t>alnt solvent*, as the paint dissolves
It naturally passes Into the most ab
sorbent material In contact with It—
which '.* the blotting paper—not Irto
the adjacent cloth. Deep stains can
‘ be completely removed by this method.
