"A short time before the President eft for Kuropn he said: 'Special al ienees have been the proline cause in he modern world of th<^ plans and passions that produce war.' Yet, not withstanding this statement so very rankly made, we an; now asked to llraw a line througn Washington's farewell address, put behind u< the ?lollcy of our government during its "intiro life, and enfr into a sptciil al lance, an alliance whluh will include ireat Britain and Kr-inee, and pos ?Ibly Italy and I5elgluni. for both ind'. :ate I a desire to pet In.

"Upon another occasion after the iPresldent had most earnestly de ^ounced such alliances as being the luthors of the wars and the intoler ible conditions Af Europe. he used this anguage: 'The ITnited States will en - er Into no special arrangements or jnderetandings with particular na lons.'

"This alliance is the premature obit uary of the league of natlonH as a 'eague of peace.

RECORD FOR SPEED FIXED BY CONGRESS Three Billion Dollars Is Appropriated in Less Than Thirty Days?Railroad Legislation Next Step, and May Provide Return of Property. nv J. FIIBD F.SSARV. WASHINGTON, July 6.? When Con gress acted upon tlie last of the appro priation bills on July 2 that body es tablished a record for expedition never equaled In any other session since the beginning of the government. It drafted, brought out, debated and paused measures appropriating morel than $3,000,000,000 In less than thirty days' time. Concretely, it made avail- j able for public expenditure money at j the rate of approximately 1100,000.-! 000 a day. And if tha House and Senate are minded to do it, they can easily clean j the legislative slate, enact all urgent bills, ratify the treaty of peace and adjourn the session by September 1. Leaders at both ends of the Capitol are now working out a program to that end, and if that program should be followed the Republican leadership in the new Congress will have an en viable achievement to their credit. They will deserve and will receive the applause of the nation. Aside from the peace treaty there are <>nly two urgently Important bills to be acted upon. The first pro ! vides for the enforcement of prohibl ' tlon under the amendment to the l'"ed . eral Constitution and the ? other will provide for the surrender by the gov ernment of the railroads now under itb control. Prohibition Hall* fircaaed. Already Congress has legislated ! upon the return of the wire services 1 to their owners, it has legislated for ! the immediate future upon the mer | cnant marine question. It has carried i much general and needed legislation j In the appropriations bills. And it has i exhausted many hundreds of thou ' H.mds of words discussing the peace treaty even before that document | could be ofllcially laid before It. Prohibition legislation will not ; lengthen the present session of Con i Kress. The ways are carefully greased I for the passage of the Volstead bill, j It wiil go through the House with , only brief debate. And if it is not | uaced down w th outrageously dras i tic provi.-.ions tht Senate will swallow It whole. Few legislators, whether ; they be *'?*?. or i'ry, sre eager to do bate prohibition at length. ! This question has been a nightmare | to Congress for the past twenty years, j That body thought it had unloaded the ; issue upon the States when it passed the constitutional amendment resolu , tlon, but It has found that the cat I comes stalkinpr back at every Fesslon. The present purpose is to vote upon the bill and get rid of a disagreeable i visitor as soon as possible. I Rut the passage of a railroad bill 1 is not so simple a matter, v The House ; has been slow in framing its measure. I The Senate has been about as slow, with the result that the present con gressional leadership finds the Presi | dent about to return, and yet no con : structlve mea-sure has been prepared | or presented under which the rail : roads may be handed hack, their ln ' terests safeguarded and the govern ment's Investments in them protected. A full month should be allowed the Senate to debate the railroad bill. The House will act within less than a week. Runlnrnii Will Protest. Tt Is difficult to calculate in advance | upon the amount of time the Senate will require for the consideration of the peace treaty. If It is finally agreed, contrary to the advice of Sen ator Knox, that peace cannot fce pro I claimed until the ratification of that j measure, the pressure upon the Sen i r.te from the country will be so heavy that it will doubtless yie'd jv'thin a r??it.c.nably short time and call fo- a vote. If American Interests, for ex ample. :lnd tnat they are unable to do business with Germany, although ail other allied powers are do'ng bus ; iness with the late enemy, there will be | a mighty \.i "test. Senator Knox holds fo the view that '?when any three allied powers and Ger j many exchange ratifications, the treaty becomes effective and a state of peace j is assumed to exist as affecting all the ' powers involved.

And if the President adhered to this, ho will not suspend the operation of the tradinjr-with-tho-enemy act and will not authorize a resumption either of business or diplomatic relations with t Germany until the Senate has acted. It is this phase of the matter which encourages belief that the Senate's league of nations debate and the de bate on the peace treaty In general will not be protracted. Besides. Sena tors have talked endlessly about peace policies since the very beginning of the session. Most of those who have set Views already have made set j speeches. Some of the Senators hava , spoken many times on the same sub iject, and It is difficult to see how that ! body can contribute a Rreat deal more ; to the sum total of human knowledge i or belief upon this question. Houne Cnn Knd Srnalon. Kven though the Senate unbridles itself however, and proceeds with a peace debate Just as though it had , never mentioned the subject, that, will bo no reason why the House Hhould iiemaln in session for the whole period. After that lower body has passed the prohibition and railroad bills and the few minor measures now upon its cal 1 entlar. It will be free to go its way ? rejoicing. If it chooses to do so. The House has no official voico In ; the question of making peace. It has nothing to do with treaties except ? when they call for the appropriation i of money, as was the case in the con ventlon for the purchase of the Virgin I Islands, or when they call for general legislation to make them cfTective. So. I far tho peace treaty Involves no ap propriations, beyond a contribution for the support of a league of^natlons. and this can be carried In a final deficiency bill or In some general appropriation bill at the December session. j There Is one phase of the peace i treaty which the House may have to ideal with. This provides for tho dls ? position of the assets of enemy sub jects In this country, seized by or , surrendered to the alien property cus ? todlan. ThlB money Ih to bo used to ! pay the just claims of Americans whose ; lives or property were lost through i unlawful acts on the part of Germany, and It will be necessary for Congress I to pave the way for the settlement of these claims and for the final dlsposi : tlon of the German property.
