It's a good thing we put In those limerick rules that prorlsion about n tie, fans. When we din it, we really did not think it probable that two last line would be so nearly equal in merit that a choice could not be made between them. Still, there was tho off-chance ami wo Incorporated in the rules the pro vision that, if the judges could not decide between two lines, each one should get a prlre of ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS. And today, being up against that exact proposition, we are awarding two prizes for linen on which the voting of the judges became a hopeless deadlock. And the judges, by the way, were not the limerick editors but ten girls from various departments in the big plant of the H. K. Mulford chemical concern nt Broad and Wallace streets.

This was mlicated by the fB,,llrp ot S(.natop Hoed when here to approve Mr. Hard ings proposal, by the ideas expressed by Senator Poindexter on hl.s visit and by the surprising about-face of Sena tor MrCumber on the trontv. These men mine w 'individuals. Senator Knox spoke for the Republican major Itv of the Sate. m brollght with him a carefully prepare.! state ment which he left w,th tnn PrpN,(Ipnt. elect and nlso s,rd for publication in the press. Nn other visitor has served upon Mr. Harding a document showing just how fnr thN government should go In the organizing of International re Iitions. That alone martc Mr. Knox'a visit significant. Regarded ns Senate's IflMmarnm , Hut thut Is not all Mr. Knox'a statement. v,hlie ostensibly one f his personal views, bears the marks of con ference nnd consultation. There is little doubt thnt It represents the view of tho Republicans in the Senate. The word "ultimatum" Is much nhused, but the statement of Mr. Knox rends much "so nn ultimatum, not of the irrecon- "it is the declared nollce of the United States, n order to meet fully nnd fairly our obligations to ourselves and to the world, that the freedom and pence of Europe being again threat ened bj mi) power or combination of powers, the 1'nltisl States will regard such a .situation with grave ronceru us a menace to its own peace and free dom, will consult with other powers nffw'ti'd, with u view to devising means for the removal of Mich menace, and W'H. the i" x'dtv nrMng in the future, co-npernte with the friends of civillra tion for it.s ili-feiiM- " , Kno Kpliilns His Poiition "The passage of this resolution, as It is proposed to be amended." said Sen ntor Knox, "would provide a simple unci customnr.v method of adjusting our relations with I'lcrniiinj . The declaration of u policj hiicIi as is indicated, followed by n slmilnr dec laration 1 the other tintlons, would constitute nn association of nations hound together by a common purpose thut Ihs I hnvp snid on another occu fionl neither parchment, sealing, slgua tures uor blue ribbons could ninkc more ' obligator or effective.

Including disarmament, that might be agreed upon by the nations to lessen the probability of war." To see that there Is a common origin uf this statement nnd that there is a general agreement hack of it. It Is only necensnrv to ncnll that Senator Poin dexter when here used the same words as Mr Knox, "commii-sions to investi gate political disputes," and that Sen ator McOimlicr. on his visit indicated lii.s support of the same general pro grnm of international association which should not tnke the form of a perma nent organisation.
