Peace Treaty Deoiiions.
The United States will not ratify
the peace treaty without effective
reservations on certain points. Tho
United SUtes will so word these reser
vations as not to amend the treaty
textually and automatically send it
b4wk for reconsideration by nil the
signatory nations. The reservations
are, however, conditions of ratification,
and to make the treaty binding upon
the United States must be accepted
in an exchange of notes by three out
of four of the great allied nations
of the entente.
In most of the reservations, which
record dissents of the United states,
the necessary verbal remolding of pro
posed amendments is easily accom
plished. In a few cases where the
troaty provisions as framed are ab
horreat, if taken literally, or under
any reasonable conatruetion which
may bo attributed to them, the task
is more difficult. For Instance, the
Shaatung provision of the treaty on
ita faee treats Japan's promise in re
spect to Shantung as non existent. It
transfers the Oerman rights In Shan
tung to Japan unconditionally, and
makes no reference to Japan's promise
to return Shantung to China, aad that
promlao la not of public record any
where. If any territorial rights wore
among the German Shantung rights
they are on the faee of the treaty to
bo transferred in fea simple, as it
were, to Japan, and Japan will abeorb
them and make them an integral part
of the nation, to bo protected perhaps
by the league of nations against ex
ternal aggression under article X of
the league covenant. The United
States ia of the opinion that Shan
tung should go at onee to China and
withholds approval from any other
treaty disposition of this Chinese ter
ritory.
Sinee Japan ndmits her sincere prom
ise to restore Shantung to China, and
since thia vital promise la not made a
part of the treaty, the reservation of
the United States on thia point
amounts, in eseenee, only to a refusal
to eonstrae the treaty la aeeordanoe
with its literal terms with oat the modi
fication effected by Japan's binding
promise of reetoratioaj or, changing
the angle ef view, the reservation
means, in esaenes, that the United
States eoastrnes the treaty provision
concerning Shantung as If Japan's
promise were written into it.
Jafu could not reasonably dlsaent
from a reservation which assumes good
faith on her part in reepoct to the
Shantung premiss and refnses assent
to any treaty provision, or any con
struction of a treaty provision, whleh
on its face ignores thia promise ae if
it were non existent or iaaineore, or
negligible or worthless.
The difficulty in framing a Shantung
reservntion whieh would offend nobody
would be largely removed if Japan
would make of forau^ record with the
aame binding force that attachea to
the treaty of her promise to return the
Shaatung Oerman rights to China,
stating precisely what she promises to
do aad when she promises to do it.
No distrust of Japan's intention to
keep her promise is necessarily in
volved m the universsl desire to know
rxastly what Japan promises, nnd
Japan can therefore with honor put
oa record voluntarily the precise
terme of the promise which the world
is ready to believe she intends to ful
fill.
When will the return to China be
madet Is hsr promise to be carried
out at once, or at an early fixed date,
or at aome indefinite future date, to
bo decided solely by Japan?
Will the return be made freely, with
the exaction of absolutely no new con
sideration in concessions from Chlnat
Tt ia assumed that the promise Is not
merely to re-sell the Shantung rights
to China at a price to be fixed by
Japan.
Ia any event it should be possible
to frame a Shantung reservation
whieh would be effective in ita dissent
from the treaty provision, and which
Japan could not reasonably resent,
sinee Uncle Sam's reservation would
value at 100 per cent the sincerity of
Japan'a promise to return Shantung
and would insist that the treaty shall
not be so worded or construed aa to
treat Japan's promise as non-existent
or worthless.
Motor But Linei.
Experiments are to be tried with
motor busses operating on three
routes from points in the northeastern
section of the city to central traffic
pointa. Permits for the running of
these lines of motor vehicles have
been granted by the utilities oommi*
sion. under a prior rulHg fi::irg a
maximum fare of 10 ee-Ms
ciltc fares charged on tlie-e I - :u-y
be less than that sum. It remains
now to be seen whether at a faro ap
proximately the seme as that charged
by the atreet cara these Hum cab be
conducted profitably.
When the city wai heavily congest
ed, with daily ear rider* in excess of
the capacity of the lines during the
ruth hours, such accommodations
would have been of the highest value.
The congestion hat now been material
ly relieved, mainly by the departure
of many of the war-time workers from
the government service, and in part
by the addition of further facilities
to the street car service. Thus the
demand for more trartl r -.oinmoda
tion is less now than i. uis a year
ago, though more cars ?:i are needed
and are being supplied t'lom time to
time. Will the new facilities supply a
need in the matter of moving the peo
ple to and from work morning and
evening*
Competition with the existing car
lines will not succeed unless the serv
ice is speedier and more comfortable
and at least ns cheap. If the fare is
higher the accommodation afforded
must be materially greater than that
given by the car Unci. Prejudice
against the street railway companies
will not hold great numbers of patrons
continuously in line to their financial
disadvantage.
The Bound-Up of Rods.
A round up of radicals conducted
in several cities has resulted in the
taking of upward of a thousand men
and women known to be engaged in
"red" propaganda in this country.
Some of them are directly ronnected
with organizations that have been pro
moting the movement for the estab- j
lishment of the soviet system of gov
ernment here. Some of them have
been addressing meetings at which
revolutionary doctrines have been
preached. Much "literature" was taken
in the raids?pamphlets of an incen
diary character, attacks upon the gov
ernment and upon the industrial sys
tem, appeals to workers to join the
movement for an overturn of the
American social order.
These arreets will not be effective
unlets they are followed by action.
The presumption is that the persons
apprehended have put themselves
within the roach of the law by their
utterances or acta and that they can
be held for trial and convicted. If
they have been simply taken up at a
warning, to be later released, no good
will come of the raids and arrests.
The subsequent release will leave the
government as mueh exposed to in
sidious attack as ever, indeed, a bad
reaction is likely to result.
Deportation of those who are aliens
and are engaged in seditious activity
but who are aot definitely guilty of
criminal conduct should promptly
follow. There is abundant evidence
of the pretence here of many for
eigners, meetly of Russian birth, who
are busy in the work of promoting
the soviet movement. That they are
doelgnated agents of a definitely es
tablished propaganda is believed.
Thoee who are guilty of actual
criminal activity should bo taken to
court, and if convicted ihould be im
prisoned. There must be no triling
with thtee people. They are danger
ous to public security. They cannot
overturn the government, but they can,
nnd if aot cheeked may, start riots
and destructive demonstrations. They
even aow suspected of having
plotted a spectacular and murderous
affair in New York with bom be on a
large eeale. They undertook a whole
tale bomb distribution a few months
tgo. They are without question at
work among the working people in
promoting strikes and encouraging re
sistance to the law.
Rounding these reds up in raids will
have no effect if the courts do not
act promptly in their punishment and
deportation. American society will
not be safe from disorders and erimes
as long as they are permitted to con
tinue their wicked agitations and plot
tinge.

Politics.
In an address delivered at Spring-1
field last night before the Republican
Editorial Association of Illinois,
Chairman Hays of the republican na
tional committee said:
"I repeat and shall continually de
clare that what we nee,d in this coun
try ia not 'less politics' but more at
tention to politics. Politics is the
science of government, and what we
need Is more attention to the science
of government."
The present is a good time to pon
der this excellent piece of advice. The
science of government is today a
world-wide topic. Some old forms of
government have recently been over
thrown. while others are on the eve
of :ncdifiration. Some new forms are
?iiig; established. Hence, government,
is now the study of all peoples.
The American form is more than a
hundred years old, and has aerved a
noble purpoae. It wss established un
der difficult!**, and many years later
preserved under even greater difficul
ties. Under it the country haa reach
ed large proportions, and even larger
Influence. Over a hundred million
people shelter under the Stars and
Stripes, and have achieved great, pros
perity. They are the source of power.
They choose, and instruct, their public
servants. They are it.
And yet the proposition is advanced
now that the American form of gov
ernment has outlived its usefulness;
that it should be sent to the scrap
heap, and something strictly up-to
date put in its place. True, the propo
sition comes from no high source, and
is being pushed by no great number of
persons. But the bare fact that it is
made and being pushed at all is some
what (tart ling.
It is an accepted aphorism that the
people get the kind of government
they deserve. Our people got the
right kind, because they fought to cs- j
tablish it. Later, they fought among ;
themaelvcs to preserve it.. But. of I
(course, it ha* never been perfect. It I
showed defects from the first.
If those defects, however, have in
creased in number of late years, the
blame is upon those citizens who have
1 practically abjured politic*; who "have
had no time for politics"; who have
let "George," in the persons of caucus
fixers and manipulators of machines,
'do it." Had they taken the proper
interest in public affairs, and busied
themselves with details, better nomi
nation* for office would have been
made and better men elected to of
flee than the record has too often
shown.
Bvery citizen should he in polities,
and lend a hand toward a clean and
efficient conduct of public affair*. We
could not have too many politicians,
or too much politic*. Under our form
of government, eternal politie* it the
price of good government. Where
any large number of citizens shirk
their public duty?either through in
difference, or a too selflih attention to
private interest*?evil* creep in and
the public it injured. Politic* is the
wear for everybody who ha* Ameri
can intereats at heart.
