The American Approach
?Jerrrtaiy Hughes'*? N?-w Haven
?peech discloses the Administra?
tion'-! linn of approach toward a
reparation settlement; and, since h

Administration'? su*-r,rcstion:i are n
first move toward that economic re?
habilitation of which the whole
?eorld stands in need.
What .\n,?'ri<H ran do is ';
?ained by conditions which Mr.
fardlng and Mr. Hughes did not
create. They have to take account of
the tragedy which debarred th?
United Stuten from direct participa?
tion in tin* execution of the
- Treaty. We ?arara der
from our forner .-? Waben
-Senat? failed t?i ratify. Mr.
Wilson rlrain?'d unduly at a f?W
TWtrvations of m'-i- y .lomestic im
?erta'it-?'. He slauplitired his own
???fk rather than "tolerate pcrson
?.Ty emendations to it.
The reparation i-uet-tion was thcre
tv Eun-pcanizcd. The major Allies
a-re left to fleht it out among; them
I and with Germany. We have
only a reversior.ary int?-re?t, kept
alive by our separate treaty with
(.etmany and our Rhinelarxl
pntion bill. France, Belgium. I
Britain and Italy have apportiotu-ti
ity, and Trance
and B? ljjiuiii, at least, have an ?or

as ivo may be to an
of the reparation incubus anrl what?
ever solution we may ourselves think

The pound sterling ha.- advanced
sharply toward par, showing finan?

recovery lags behind, Great Britain
' still has a surplus of Industrial
workers, undrained by emigration.
The i'zecho-Slovakiari crown has
also appreciated. But th-- rew re?
public lias now about l?>0,ii00 men
out of work. IaBst July the situntion
was better, 2?,"..'.0 unemployed re?
ceiving allowances from the state
and 22,000 being: aided from private
sources. Austria is prostrate, finan?
cially and economically. Vienna
alone had 40,000 unemployed la*-t

value. Idleness there i? also on the
decrease. Last February IR.T.OOO
unemployed were r?-ported. In June
total had fallen to 10.ri,000.
, Italy, too. has taken a big turn for
the better. Last July there were
only 407,000 out of work, compared
with 7r.0.000 5iv months earlier.

from ]4>S,<>00 m February to 80,000

Whalen's Bridge
The bridge that f'ommisiioner
Whalen proposes to buil-1 acr

'00,000. The preliminary esti?

f41.000.00fi. Fnterpriscs of this
particularly when conducted
by Tammany, always far exceed th?
original estimates.
In the opinion of all intelligent
tra-ction engineer? bridges are far
inferior to tunnel? as a means of
?toss-river transportation. They
require large tracts of land at each

demnation proceeding?. Tammany
s batten? on the pur?-lia?e of
Plunkett used to call it
"honest graft."
Vet Whalen Is determined to
build the bridge, confident that he
will have the backing of Tammany.
Tnmmany wants the bridge, be?
cause its members have lacked an
opportunity like that for a long
