Applying the pnnciple det.rmin.ed
*tron by President Uarding and hia
Cabinet, the an.-wer .s simple. Francr,
Belgium and the other Allies may sell
all the German rcparation benda in
this country they can tind invoalors to
take, but the moncy paid by Amcrican
inveators fot such bonds must, every
cent of it, bc left tn the United States.
The Allies can u*c it for one of two
purposes. They can pay off some of
the debts they already owe the United
States or thej can buy Amewcan good:-,
which can be taken to Europe. The
latter proc<rs8 will leave Europe's deb!
to the United States unre.auced, but
it will benefit this country by stimu
lating cxports.
Earnestly desiring practieal results
on disarmament President Harding and
his advisers have no (ntention, it may
be said emphattcally, of permitting
aome of the Allies to borrow money in
this country on which to keep their
place in tho armament race.
"We don't bclievc in the Amcrican
people lending tbem money to build
battleships and maintain armics, nor do
we belicvc in permitting the heads of
some of the government? to borrow
money from the Amcrican investors in
stead of levying the taxes which they
would otherwise impose on their peo
ples," a Cabinct member said to-day in
discussing this phaac of the eituation.
it is boped by tho Administration
that this practieal eeonomic lever will
have some ctTect on the Allied govern
ments in their appropriations for
armics and navies.
Foresee Revival of Trade
This, however, while it ftta in with nn
earnest desire on the part of the Ad
ministration. is otily incidcntal to the
eeonomic policy. What starlcd the dis
cussions between the President and hu
advisers which have led to the adoption
of this financial policy as outlined was
the urgent nccessity for doing some
thing to end the prcsent business stag
Stimulation of exports has eontinued
to stand out, during practically every
Cabinet meeting held since March 4, as
the Mida.-, touch so far as busindss in
this country is coneernod. With this
tbought i>i mind there is not the
slightest intention of permitting some
European country to borrow money in
the United States and then, with that
money, buy wheat in Canada or the
Argentine while the Amcrican farmer
has wheat for salo.
On the other hand, there is a sinrere
desire that Arrerican capital should be
invosted abroad in produetive enter
prises. The opportunitics for such in
vestments. however, are in Soutli
Amcrica and Chtna, for example, rather
than in Euro;"1. Europe, in the onin
ion of tbc Administration, instead of
offcring opportunitics for produetive
enterprises. is busily engaged in burn
ing up capital by employing it for the
construetior, of warship;; and the irain
tenance and recruiting of armies. And
the expression of the Administration i?j
that at a time when tho world is so
BOrely in neo-d of new capital destruc
tion of capital 'is little short of an in
t?rnational crinie.

Olympic Sails Unhampered
End of Slrike of British Cooks
and Stenards Forecast
^SOUTHAMPTON, F.ngland. May 25.?
The sailing to-day for New York with
out incident of the stoamship Olympic
caused steamship officials to expresn
the belief that their trouble with cooks
and stewards on vessels over reduced
wages had ended. They said that the
substitution of volunteers for regular
employees on the steamship Aquitania
evidently hid proved the futility of
the atrike, and that this was made
more apparent when the steamship
Mauretania s'.gned on a fu!l crew with
out difficulty at the new wages.
The officials of the White Star Line
however, waited to see the Olympic get
away from port before they expressed
the opinion that the difficulty with the
cooks and stewards was at an end.

I Four Loyalists Elected
To Ulster Parliament
BELFAST, May 25* (By The Asso?
ciated Press).?Thomas Moles was the
j tirst member elected to the new Ulster
Parliament for South Belfast in the,
voting yesterday. The return of thrca
j other Loyalists in that section is prac
: tically certain.
Wholeaale charges of intimidation
j and personotion during the bp.lloting
j are being made by both the Nation
i alists and the Unionists.
I A Nationalist newspaper cites dozens
j of incidents with names, in which it
declarea Nationalist voters in Bally
' macarret, across the River Lagan from
Belfast, were beaten on their way to
I the polls, or after voting, thus prc
: venting others from ettempting to east
: vctes.
The Unionists likewise charge that
their supporters were prevented from
exercising the franchise in Nationalist
districts. Neither side appears to at
tempt to conceal the fact that per
j sonation was carried on to an unprec
1 edented extent.
As reports come in from the prov
I inces the number of cases in which
: children voted incrcases, but there was
I only one anywhere which matched that
i of the child of two and one-half years I
I who voted for Moles. That wts the
; case of a girl just under three years]
who east her vote for J. M. Barbour, a j
j Unioniat candidate in Antrim, who is
\ well known in tho United States.
It is not unueua] for Ulster children
j to get on the voting lists and a case is
i rccalled in the last elcctions where
ja faraily of eight children, ranging
J from sixteen years downward, exer
cised the franchise. It is easy for their
i names to get on lists on which all per
I sons of voting age automatically ore
j piaced, and there they remain until the
j revision which occurs in July of this
year, when they can be objectcd to.
Meanwhilo they are fully cntitled to
vote. There are various ways in which
children's names are piaced on the
lists. In Bome cases tho pnrent after
whom the child has been named has
died, and as the child bears the name
on the Hst, it is cntitled to vote.
Oftener, however, it arises through ]
a member of a family misunderstand
ing the electlon agent who is canvass

are mnde up, to sce thnt all supporters
of his party are registered. The

The Japaneee viewpoint, as expressod
