Smyrna in flames is one symptom. The gathering of Allied forces along the Dardanelles and on the Marmora front is another. A new threat to European peace is to be reckoned with. Kemal lifted a conquered nation out of the dust. He ha.? restored the Turkish sol? dier's confidence in himself and re? kindled the enthusiasm of the Mos? lem world for its- fighting vanguard, tfiat remnant of the faithful which so long; retained a politicfl hold in Europe and which by common con pent enjoyed the honor of perpetu? ating the Caliphate. Can the re? created Turk be kept an exile in Asia? Kemal began the work of regen? erating Turkey under discouraging circumstances. The Caliph and his government in Constantinople, under pressure from the Allies, signed the armistiee and the crushing Treaty of S? vres. The latter was a death warrant to the old Turkish Empire It cut away all the Arab lands. It freed Armenia, assigned western Asia Minor and most of Thrace to Greece and made Constantinople and its environs an internationalized dis? trict. The Straits were to be neu? tralized and stripped of fortifica? tions. T5ie Caliph was to become a second "prisoner of the Vatican." Kemal refused to accept the treaty. He gradually set up a Nationalist Turkish government at Angora, Hi? military resources were small. He liad to fight the Greeks, who, under Venizelos, had engaged to execute the S?vres compact for the major .Allies. In 1920 his forces were driven back from the Smyrna dis? trict and the Straits region. He re? conquered most of Armenia in Tur? key, but on the west front was only able to hold the line of the Constan? tinople - Bagdad Railroad, covering central Anatolia. Cut off from military supplies, the Turkish Nationalist state would probably have fallen early in 1921 had not the Greeks, in a fit of pique, recalled their evil genius, Constan tine. The Allies would no longer in? trust him with the execution of the S?vres treaty. Their boycott threw a life line to Kemal. He felt that he could whip Tino if the Allies held off. Tino saw to it that they did hold off. He defied their authority and repudiated the revision of the S?vres treaty which they sought to force on him. This revision conceded much to Angora. But Kemal could not re? alize on these concessions until he had ?ettled with the Greeks. Last year Constantino's bigger army seemed twice to have him by the throat. But each time the invader was Bhaken off. Finally, this year, the Turks launched their resistless "march to the sea." , The Nationalists are flushed with their almost unbelievable military success. Kemal now asks for all of Aria Minor and most of Thrace. These were already assigned to him by the Allies. But he also asks for Adrianople, an Ottoman "holy city," aryi for Constantinople, the ancient seat of Turkish temporal and spirit? ual power. Constantinople is the only real bone of contention. The Allies have been occupying and administering it. It is nominally internationalized, but practically British. Great Britain aims to keep it denationalized. France is only partially with her in this aim. With a View to conciliat? ing their Moslem dependencies, the French are willing eventually to rec? ognize Turkey's nationalist aspira? tions, even to the point of readmit? ting the new Turkish nation to its former capital. French and Italian policy in the 2?oar East io pro-Turkish and in con? flict with British policy. Great Brit? ain is trying to induce Rumania and Jago-Slavia to, oppose a restoration of Adrianople and Constantinople. If Kemal crosses the Dardanelles he invites war with the Allies ? cer? tainly war with Great Britain and the Balkan powers which may be won to her support. The Balkans threaten again to become a national melting pot, as they -were before the World War. Will Kemal attempt to invade Thrace or will he seek another jeaceful revision of the S?vres treaty? Event's will soon show. The return of the Turk politically to Europe would be a dramatic rever sal of what seemed to be accom? plished fact. It would rub the wrong: way all European and American pre? conceptions. It would be a crime against history. But Europe is deal? ing now with a strange phenomenon. The "Sick Man" of the nineteenth century was sentenced to death. He did not die. He was born again in heroic effort. It is therefore a dis? turbing moral as well as a physical problem with which the patchers-up of the S?vres treaty now have to wrestle. The Turk is regenerated. But is he fit to come back into post? war Europe, and is post-war Europe a good place to let him come back into? The End of Persecution The failure of Commissioner of Markets O'Malley to secure from the Board of Estimate an appropriation for a vast army of market super? visors and assistants ought to end the system of persecution that has victimized pushcart peddlers in the public markets. The cost of licenses would have been as great to the ped? dlers if these employees had been on the city pay roll as it would had they continued to pay themselves out of the license fees. The peddlers' only salvation from persecution is cheapened cost of the maintenance of the markets. This seems assured by the attitude of the Board of Estimate. In the judgment of experts who have studied the situation there is no reason why the peddlers should be taxed more than $10 or $12 a year for the privilege of using the markets, instead of $52, as at present. The purpose of these municipally conducted vending places is, as an? nounced by the Mayor, to bring down ! the cost of food to the poor. That ? purpose has not been well served, be- j cause in the past the peddlers have j been overcharged for licenses and ! have naturally been forced to pass along to their customers the cost of I high license fees and the tips they were forced to pay for good loca? tions and for the removal of refuse. Furthermore, speculators came into the markets, bought the most desirable produce from the farmers and sold it to grocers who served wealthy customers in other parts of the city. These conditions have been made plain by The Tribune in a searching investigation, with the re? sult that graft has ended and an effort is being made to make the markets a real help to people of small means. The interest of Mr. Justice Crop sey in the matter and his order for? bidding the paying of licenses to un? authorized collectors brought it to an issue. The resu't will be honestly conducted markets and cheaper food, provided vigilance is not relaxed. Covering Up Defeat It is the natural endeavor of Mr. Gompers and Mr. Jewell to create an impression that the rail shop? men's strike?in itself a disastrous failure?somehow injured the status of the Railroad Labor Board. They point out that the minority roads which are taking strikers back have agreed to the appointment, of joint boards to adjust disputes over sen? iority and other questions. "Ha, ha!" say the strike apologists; "we have left the Railroad Labor Board out of all this!" It is an illusory claim. The Labor Board decided a dispute carried up to it by shopcraft unions. The shop? men walked out as a protest against the decision. But the latter still | stands in its entirety. In the settle? ment with the minority roads it was plainly stated that the men should return to work at the wages fixed by the Labor Board. All the men asked was an opportunity to go back to work without definitely sur ! rendering all seniority rights. They ; certainly didn't strike simply for I the purpose of compelling the roads I to take them back on such a basis. The Labor Board was never asked to pass on the waiver or non-waiver 1 of seniority rights. It had simply said in one of its early decisions that it would not recognize the ex ' istence of hold-over seniority rights ; if the question ever came before it. The transportation law authorizes | railroads and employees to deal with I each other directly on all questions of wages and working conditions. : Under the minority settlement each road treats with its own men. The | Labor Board's services may be in? voked by either side to settle an un? yielding controversy. There can, therefore, be no slight to the board in direct negotiations. The more direct settlements made the better it will suit the board, the chief func? tion of which is to pass on issues on which direct negotiation fails. The boavd's authority, assailed by the shopmen, was not overthrown, i The strike's failure strengthens its ' hands. That failure demonstrated, however, the foolishness of not giv? ing the board ample power to en? force its decisions. It is the de? fender of the public interest. This defense would be more effective if: the Railroad Board could be com-! bined with the Interstate Commerce1 Commission, thus creating unified authority and responsibility. This may come later. For the present the board has done what it could. And it comes out of the strike vindi? cated, to the extent that the strik? ers have had to bow to its judgment Still the Best Policy The prompt expulsion from the New York Stock Exchange of mem? bers found guilty of unethical prac ! tices ia evidence that in big business honesty is still the best policy. It also shows that the New York Stock Exchange, despite the fact that it does not meet the approval of William Jennings Bryan or Sam? uel Untermyer, is determined to keep its house in order. Wall Street has suffered in the last year because of the failures of many bucketshops and of heavy losses to honest investors as a consequence. But bucketshops are not members of the Stock Exchange, nor does that body knowingly countenance shady transactions by its members. So much has been said and is being said against it that when it proceeds aggressively to rid itself of dishonest firms as soon as their dishonesty is detected, it is entitled to a word or two of commendation. The Career of Justice Keogh The members of the bench and bar who will this afternoon pay their tribute to Justice Martin J. Keogh upon his retirement will speak for a far wider circle of friends and admirers. For twenty seven years he has served his fellow citizens as a high-minded and warm? hearted judge. Few men in the en? tire metropolitan district have been so widely known and beloved for every generous virtue. It was as a trial lawyer, the ablest counsel for the defense that Westchester County possessed, that Judge Keogh gained his first fame. The simplicity and vigor of speech there developed were the natural expression of his character, and they never deserted him on the bench. Hu decisions, alike oral and written., were phrased with rare directness and clarity. He was a judge who j in speech and in action never let truth or justice escape in a fog' of legal verbiage or technicality. Of Irish blood by every inherit? ance, he left no doubt during thv? war of his stand. By his own words and in the splendid service of his sons?begun with the Allies before our entrance into the war?the name of Keogh was recorded un? mistakably on the side of right and justice. He could have had the nomination for Governor of the state on several occasions. He pre? ferred his chosen career and his home town and his friends. He re? tires to-day respected and beloved as judge, as citizen and friend by the entire community that knows him. He was a Democrat and a judge in a strongly Republican district for twenty-seven years. The Tribune Is proud to recall that in 1909 it urged and applauded his renomination. The principle of non-partisanship in the choice of the judiciary was young then, and the words then written in a Tribune editorial will bear repeating now: "The Tribune applauds the result and the way it was accomplished. Doubtless personal reasons account in part for the unanimity of the sen? timent for Justice Keogh, but never? theless it seems reasonable to believe that his renomination and the cir? cumstances surounding it indicate progress for the recognition of the principle of the continuance of good judges in office irrespective of poll tics. To the spread of this idea The Tribune has contributed to the best of its ability, and we hope the day will come when it will be no longer necossary to speak of such a nomi? nation as that of Justice Keogh as . unique." Unfortunately, through the ac? tion of a Tammany and a Republi? can boss, the spread of this idea has now been wantonly halted in this county in the case of Surrogate Cohalan. The act is a long step backward from the fine example of Justice Keogh and the spirit of his career. For all that he has stood for in his long and honorable years The Tribune tenders to Justice Keogh the sincerest gratitude and good will of that community of readers for which it may speak. Caring for Mental Defectives Dr. Thomas W. Salmon's testi? mony about conditions in Hospital 81 answers the complaint of C R. Forbes, director of the Veten, ns' Bureau, that there has been too ?much interference by non-govern | mental authorities in the care of the j wounded veterans. As head of the | division in the Medical C-u-ps which ?had charge of mental and nervous ?cases during the war and as a | psychiatrist of note in civil life Dr. j Salmon is qualified to speak with authority about the care of mental cases among the disabled veterans. The burden of his testimony is that in Hospital 81, which is now under investigation, the physician charged with inspection ?3 unqualified by his previous training to pass on mental cases and that the attendants in the hospital are so underpaid that only the poorest type of individual can be induced to do the work. Even the keepers in the monkey house in the 'zoo, he says, are paid twice as much as the attendants looking after the insane patients among the soldier?. In other words, Dr. Salmon makes it clear that the treatment of these patients is inadequate. He makes ten recommendations to alleviate conditions. His testimony in this case merely confirms the general im? pression gained from the statements of such men as himself and other representatives of organizations working in behalf of the veterans ?that there is room for improve? ment and that only by public agita? tion will results be achieved. Director Forbes may dislike inter? ference in his work. There is no implied criticism against him. But it is difficult to escape the conclusion that conditions are not as they should be. Are the monkeys in the zoo entitled to more skilled attend? ants than the disabled veterans? "Fighting Bill" Donov?an There is no reflection on Lieuten? ant Governor Wood in the desire of many of the leaders of the Republi? can party to make Colonel William A. Donovan, now United States Dis? trict Attorney at Buffalo, a candi? date for Lieutenant Governor. Colonel Donovan led the "Fighting Sixty-ninth" in the World War. The record made by officers and men of that regiment is remembered with a thrill by every citizen of this state. Those who urge him for the nomi? nation believe that it is fitting that at least one man with a brilliant war record should be on the state ticket, and they contend that no man is bet? ter qualified as Governor Miller's running mate than Colonel Donovan. He left a lucrative law practice to go to the war. He took into it one of the "fightingest" regiments ever assembled. He came out of the war the idol of the men who served with him and with a reputation for cour? age and ability that was known throughout the state. He has done excellent work in the United States District Attorney's office since his appointment, but is said to be willing to answer the call of his state if it comes to him. Colo? nel Donovan was discussed at an informal conference between Gover? nor Miller and some of the party leaders at the State Fair at Syra? cuse, together with other possibili? ties for the state ticket, in which some changes are certain to be made. Final decision, of course, will rest with the delegates, but there Is no doubt whatever that if Colonel Don? ovan's name is brought forward he will develop a very powerful sup? port. And it is certain that if nomi? nated he will lend great strength to the ticket. More Truth Than Poetry By James J. Montague The Destroyer Now doth the busy little moth Within the closet lurk, Nor give himself to idle sloth But spend his days at work. And when our brand-new evening suit Is taken out next fall. It won't be worth a single hoot And can't be worn at all. No poets sing this insect's praise, Though busier is he Throughout the balmy summer days Than any busy bee. No hour of respite does he seek, No moment of repose, A mite he is, but in a week He eats a suit of clothes. Try as I will Talways fail To understand aright How one so fragile and so frail Has such an appetite. I cannot guess how he contrives So fast his jaws to ply, Or how the creature ever thrives On meals of wool and dye. Yet undismayed by camphor balls Each passing summer through Among my winter clothes he crawls And eats a suit or two. And though no poet up to date Has ever spoke him fair, I think it's only right to state That I think he's a bear! Too Late Now There seems to be a general im? pression in Germany that losing the war was quite a mistake. Lucky Russia never need worry about a coal famine. She can always burn rubles.

( Sir: It seems important to realize that under present political conditions we are liable to have fastened upon us isms of almost any kind, through amendments to the Constitution and by the passage of laws to enforce the amendments. Candidates for Congress or for state legislatures want more than a party nomination, and so energetic agitators are able to secure promises in exchange for votes. In this way cliques, leagues or other organizations with catchy names have a good chance to regulate our mode of living. About 40 per cent of those who could vote do not take the trouble to do so, and moat of us do not know all the new legislation which our candi? date? may be pledged to favor. What degree of personal liberty will be left to our children is problematical and must so remain until we learn how tb destroy secrecy in politics. J. HOWARD COWPERTHWAIT. New York, Sept 13, 1?22.

Inc. s a Gift By Harrietie Underbill This is the story of Thomas True, Henry Holkum and Harold Hyperbole. Harold mu3t come first because he is chief title writer and scenarist with the Vox Populi Film Company. It is breakfast time and Harold is at the table with Susie Sweetser Hyperbole. They have been married three months, and Harold is having his first spasm of jealousy. Susie had been a popular actress before her marriage, but had i consented to take a long vacation be? cause Harold wished it and because ? Harold's salary as scenarist and title writer was quite sufficient to provide Susie with all of the luxuries whicli she was accustomed to expect. Harold was peevish. He had a grievance and he knew that the proper place to air it was at the breakfast table. Susie had danced six times the previous evening with Larry Larkin, and only five times with him. "You seemed pretty well taken up with Larkin last night. When are you going to see him again ? Of course he is much more brilliant than I am." "Of course he is, old dear," ac? quiesced Suaie. "But you're the cat's whiskers in my bungalow. Pull your? self together and don't tell me you're jealous of Larry Larkin." So Harold pulled himself together, kissed Susie and went down to the studio to title his new picture, called "Her False Step." The story was about a young couple, who were having their first dis? agreement. The husband was jealous because his bride of throe months had danced six times with Harry Hawkins, and only five times with him. Harold pondered long over the situa? tion. It was what was known in the studio as a big dramatic moment. ! Finally he wrote "Matthew Brandt entered the breakfast room pale and haggard after a sleepless night; he had no chance to speak to his wife until the servants finally left them alone." The next title must tell what the husband said after the servants had left them alone, and Harold wrote this: "Helen, I feel that our bark of happi? ness is headed for the rocks; shall we allow it to drift into the Sea of Sar? gasso?there the flotsam and jetsam of broken marriage vows swirl!" Then he took a long.breath. This was great stuff he was writing this morning. Sometimes he actually wondered how he did it. And now for the wife's answer. Of course, she was blame? less, so naturally she would be terribly hurt when her husband suspected her. The picture showed the young wife with a tear in her eye and a wistful smile on her lips, so Harold first wrote a title, saying: "Helen sat with a tear in her eye?a wistful smile on hei lips." Harold knew that title writers always should be careful to tell just what the scene is that the people arc looking at. Then the wife spoke and Harold wrote as follows: "Such sus? picions are unworthy of you, an insull to that dear love which I have held as a priceless possession. I cannot explair why I danced six times with Harrj and only five times with you?some timt you shall know the truth?can you no* trust me?" ? * ? In the same studio was ? directoi named Henry Holkum. He wa3 com? paratively new in the directing game so he received only $1,000 a week Henry felt that for the past few year: he had neglected his mother, whs lived in Grand. Ranids, but the trutl of the matter was that as assistan stage manager of the Bonanza Reper What Readers Say Can't Keep a Duffer Down To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Royal Cortissoz's article "On Dufferdom" must have been read and enjoyed by many a duffer besides my? self. Mr. Macdonald's apt retort, which he quotes, "A golf course is de? signed for men who can play golf," re? minds me of a sign which is placed near the fifth teo on the Van ! Cortlandt Park public links: "None but golfers allowed on links." It is impossible to avoid seeing this sign, as it is directly on the path as : you approach the fifth tee. Every time 1 see it I have an attack of "that guilty feeling," but I am going to continue?you cannot keep a duffer down. . H. V. BUTLER. .Yonkers, N. Y., Sept. 13. 1922. Fair Wages To the Editor of The Tribune. * Sir: Will some one explain to me ! why the government, philanthropic or? ganizations, schools and various other I agencies expend timo, money and energy to raise the standard of living among the laboring masses, when on the other hand, the government, through itfc labor boards, authorizes wage scales which make a - bare existence barely possible? Whenever there is an effort among the laboring classes to get a higher wage some noisy .statistician comes forward'with figures to show that some ten or twenty year? ?go the percent age of wages to the cost of living was less. Such figures appear gross non? sense to me. If better baby contests, visiting nurses, hospital clinics, hygiene taught in the public schools have as yet accomplished nothing in the way of teaching the right way to live, better abandon them, because all these things cost money and, having educated people up to wanting them, the money must bo supplied. It strikes me that labor boards gt> at it from the wrong end. The ques? tion should be, "What is a fair re? turn on the capital invested ?" not "How little can I give this man and still keep him working?" HELEN GREENE WELLS. New Paltz, N. Y., Sept. 13, 1922. Sir Philip Gibbs Forgets To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Sir Philip Gibbs is weer-v?g copiously over the present condition of poor Germany. He seems to forget that the medicine prescribed by the Allies was only mildly homeopathic and that Germany js taking it with ill grace. He apparently forgets that French territory was invaded and partly ruined, while German territory is still intact. Evidently he is willing that France should right Germany's plight. If he did not forget that France is n nation of ideals, justice and vision he might reduce the size of his pocket handkerchief. CHARLES MORRIS.
