Thousand* of men and wt^nen are impair ing their constitutions, Idling themselves open to illness and literally losing tlieir grip on health. ?imply because their blood is thin ning out and possibly starving through lack of Iron.

Countless Immigrants, moreover, will leave tlfeir homeland, not from sentimental choice, but from econo mic necesafty. Newcomers arriving In sufficient numbers.could often in fluence and possibly sometimes out influence the native and assimilated South Americans themselves. There is another danger in addl tion to the menace of mere .numbers. South America does not yet belong to South America. The bulky con tinent Is remarkably undeveloped from evefy point of view. Nothing Is yet "set;" the moid Is still soft enough for the Intriguing impress of Europe's Angers. Irony of History. A shift In the Old World's popu lation always "hits" somebody or other. John Bull was the target, when our forefathers moved. Is history now stacking the cards' against Uncle Sam? There are ob- i vious contingencies, In which Mex- i ico would become ohe horn and South AmeVlca the other horn of a great national dilemma. For all these reasons, the second Pan American financial conference was of more than passing Interest to foreigrf diplomats here. Embassy representatives "Just dropped in" at J the meetings and carried away sug-; gestlve impressions and observations' In their mental copybooks. Indeed, the recent gathering, in the larger sense, was not a Pan American as- , sembly at all, but a world congress. South America's offer to send food stuffs to Europe. If the United States would make South American lo^ns. could be a noose a* well as a phil anthropy. Although the Old World generally casts shadows, the American people are almost always blind or color blind to them. South America had many "Interesting" visitors during the war and the round of "social" calls is not yet ended. Business and government delegations from a dozen and one European countries have paid their respects. For instance. Admiral Jelllcoe had a recent engagement In South American waters. King Victor! of Italy has also made an appoint ment for early spring. He will stop ! off at North America on his way to South America. Opposes "Rarepeaafzatlon." Although a future South America! could have less say In .the matter, present-day South America has no! wish to be "Europeanized." The Pan American financial conference made this fact strikingly clear. The South American republics all have an ex- , pressed hankering for "the Yankee spirit of material efficiency." "Your East developed the Middle West, and afterward your Middle West developed your West. Just so could the United States develop South j America. Otherwise. Europe, some how or other, must and eventually! will." This Is the message that the Latin Republics have left behind! them. y The Pan American Union, under whose auspices the Pan American financial conference has Just been held here, has long been operating toward the promotion of friendship and confidence between the two Americas. Hon. John Barrett, who has been the union's director gen eral since 1907. has been a personal force, doing much toward vitalizing this American "family of nations." The union has proven a moral and educational, as well ax an economic, ? bond between the two continents.! and properly supported will continue , to oppose South America's "Euro- , peanization." ^ On its material side there hat* been an increase of trade from $300,000. 000 to $3,000,000,000 between North ' and Latin America since the Pan American I'nion entered upon a new era. fifteen years ago. In 1913-1911.! the last tlscal year before the war. Germany's trade with the twenty j countries of Latin America amount ed approximately to $500,000,000.

BHter-Enders Lack Sufficient Strenfth To Block-Peace Pact i CONTINUED FttOM PAGE ONE. made yesterday that these Sena-' tor?, who Include Ball, Freling huysen, Newberry, Phipp*. Suther-' | land and Vlkins, have felt rather j pjqued because their attitude had been too much taken for granted and t,hey had not been consulted j with regard to their views as much as other Senators. For this reason, according to one who has sounded the views of eafh of the above named Senators, they felt duty bound to assert their In dependence and consent to support the irreconcilable group In carry ing out the threat made to Sena tor Lodge. Stand for Article Tea. The records of each of these Sen- ? ators and sentiments understood to! ^have been expressed by them indl-1 "cate, however, that If the question of treaty ratification on defeat\ should come to'a show-down they will support Senator Lodge. [ In addition to these Republican j groups, there Is the group of mild reservatlonlsts that numbers twelve J for a certainty?and It Is the belief of the majority of the group that: there are at leant five more Sena tors who will Join them?who sev- i eral weeks ago told Senator Lodge ? that If he does not yield on Article Ten they will bolt his leadership, and Join the Democrats. The Herald ' is In possession of this list, which wan given confidentially. It was pointed out yesterday that | the position of Senator Lodge is, much more etnbavassirfg than that | of Senator liitChcock, the Demo"- j cratlc leader. Senator Lodge is beset on one side i by the Democrats, who urge speedy compromise; by the mild reservation ! Republicans, who assert that unless he yields on Article X they will ex- j ert their strength In destroying his leadership, and. finally, by th? "irre- I concilables," who tell him that if he > does yield, the treaty will be de feated. confident that the knowledge that his agreeing to a compromise j will thus defeat the treaty and iin- | pair the chances for party success at the polls this fall will cause Sen ator l^odge to stand by his determi- ; nation not to go beyond "the irre ducible minimum." I*?salbillty of Concession. In spite of reports that Filday's conference \had again deadlocked chances for a compromise in the ; near future. Senator Lod?e is known to be prepared to yield on Article j X to the extent of recognizing the obligation of the United States, but i limiting the enforcement provlsiiti so that thif country's participation would ordinarily be diplomatic lath er than by armed force. This.Is essentially the reservation on the "bone of contention" of the treaty contained in the Kendrick McKellar reservations, and will be acceptable to the great majority of the Demecrats, including the Hitch cock group. During the coming wek Senator ^odge will hold conferences with many Republican Senators in an effort to determine Just how many will stand by him In carrying through a program which would embody minor changes in Article Ten and several slight departures from the original Lodge reserva tions. It Is understood he is going to show them the chances contem plated are not material. If he is' convinced he has sufficient strength ; which, combined with Democratic support, will guarantee the treaty's ratification, he will then confer with Senator Hitchcock, thus resuming, the bi-partisan conferences tempo rarily brought to a close Friday by the action of the Irreconcilable Sen ators. , RittlEentlon Looked Far. Should all efforts at compromise fail, which is deemed unlikely, the ? | treaty with the original Lodge reser- . vations would doubtless be ratified. It is this belief which is understood to have prompted the irreconcilables .1 to deliver their ultimatum to Sen- j alor Lodge. Several influential Sen- ( ators slated yesterday, however, that ! in their opinion the treaty would never go to the Senate a second time containing; the Lodge reservations unchanged. One of the Senators, a Republican, who yesterday discussed the treaty with The Herald representative, in serted the threatening attitude of ? the irreconcilables is merely an effort to prevent ratification of the treaty and to have it made a campign issue, j This Senator, whose name is with- . hel?i at his request, said: "The treaty must not go into the campaign if it can be avoided. This is what Senators Borah and Johnson and other Seniors desire, but it might prove a boomerang which would prove disastrous to the interests of th<* party. I feel that there are enough Republican Senators who.share this view to secure a compromise that will insure ratification before the campaign begins." Will Itnym Illumed. * Will H. Hays, chairman of the Republican National Committee, and "sinister interests" in the Re publican party outside the Senate were blamed last night by treatv irreconcilables for getting Senator I^odgo into the bi-partisan treaty) conferences. The Irreconcilable* said I^odgc himself never wished to compro-, misc on th6 treaty, but that he had been forced to make a show of do ing so. by pressure from Hays and the ??interests" they spoke of. . Their mission, the irreconcilable* explained. Is to save Lodge from those who are trying to make him weaken on the program of reserva tions which/ he said was the "ir reducible minimum" of safety -Tor. the United States. This was the reason the "bitter enders" called l-odge in yesterday and "read the riot act to him," they said. # X Three Quakes in Northwest Crack Walls of Building Seattle, Wash..
