The Dignity of Nations.
The dignity of nations is at stake j
in the Genoa Conference. The dignity
of nations is in the marketplace of!
barter and sale at Genoa. The dignity j
of nations is swaying on its founda- i
tlon at Genoa nnder tlie influence of i
commercial greed.
This is what is happening in the :
Genoa Conference in respect of the |
bargaining going on there with Russia
concerning the payment of her foreign
debts a v.d the sacredness of for
I'IgU UWUOU l-iupcilico AW uuoaici.
There is a point beyond which the
well ordered, substantial nations of
the world cannot go with dignity and
self-respect in their desire for con-!
ciliation and the rehabilitation of
Europe. Discussing the question of
reciprocity with a nation to induce j
that nation to pay its foreign debts '
is this point. Discussing it with i
Russia with her vast domain and
boundless natural resources is quite
as far fetched as discussing it with
any puny nation.
Russia was one of the allied nations i
ranged against the Central Powers in j
the war. A new government came:
into power in Russia when the war
had been in progress for about three |
years, and under this new govern-1
ment Russia repudiated her compact (
witn tne otner Allies, wunarew irom :
til* contest, and left them to fight it
out alone with the great German
military forces. The mere change of
government cannot relieve a people
of sacred compacts, of sacred responsibilities,
cannot relieve Russia.
The Russian people have not discharged
their obligation to their partners
in war and cannot discharge it.
It is not humanly possible to make |
good to France, England, Italy, Belgium
and Japan Russia's failure to
stand by her compact. But it is
possible for the Russian people, no
matter what their government, to'
pay their foreign debts in full, j
given time, and to reimburse foreign
owners of property in Russia for
property confiscated by Russia.
Anything short of so meeting these
obligations would be a dearly bought
saving to a great nation, to a great
people?a saving that Russia cannot
afford to ask for, cannot afford to
accept. This is where France makes
her stand in the Genoa Conference,
the principle for which she contends,
and in this contention France is
if Russia's stand, stripped of all
diplomatic tactics and diplomatic
verbiage, is that she will refuse to
pay her foreign obligations, in part
or in full, unless she gets reciprocity
guaranties, Russia is wrong, wholly
wrong; and the nations in conference i
that listen to these proposals are i
themselves wrong. 11
Russia, under her new govern- i
ment, not only withdrew her armies 1
from the allied forces, but cut apart j <
from other nations and renounced
the conventions and usages of other '
nations, and set up new usages and I
new customs wholly foreign to the 1
systems of organization and methods I
the world has worked out in long
centuries as suited to human en- I
deavor and human existence. I
The experiment has been dearly '
paid ror^oy uussta in paisien maun- 1
tries, ruined credits, the destruction '
of commerce, the destruction of trans- '
portation, and in famine and death {
measured in millions.
In this situation the other nations '
of the Genoa Conference invited Rus- 1
Ma in her serious straits, making out- '
aide assistance imperative, to come '
Into the Conference to talk with them '
and put before them the picture of
| her situation. Their purpose was to 1
help Russia and to welcome her back
into the family of nations?to do this
both in the interest of Russia and in '
the interest of world stability and international
business relations. As it
was Russia that broke her relations
with other nations, it would seem that
she of all nations shouldn't permit
herself to show a spirit of dictation to
the Conference. And this is what she
la doing when she ignores her foreign
obligations as just debts, denies the
sacredness of the principle involved
nnd makes the astounding statement
that aha will do this or that or the
other in the way of meeting these obll
gallons in this or thai or th? other
, f
| measure as a matter of reciprocity
! only.
That Is. If the nations of the world
will refinance her with vast loans of
; immediate money to help her to get
on her feet again, she will in the
course of long, indefinite time make
' payments on the claims against Russia
contracted under a previous government.
f To make it possible for the world
or auy part of the world to get this
picture of Russia at Genoa cannot be
to Russia's advantage. The New York
Herald has always had a strong
friendship for Russia, and this friendship
for her and interest in her still
continue. But It sincerely regrets
her attitude in the Conference when
she has so much to gain, whtn her 1
cordial cooperation in the work of
the Conference along wall demon-!
Btrated lines with regard to herself i
and to other nations would eo so far !
in the readjustment of chaotic after
war conditions.
With Russia's cordial cooperation
the Genoa Conference will pass into
history as achieving great world success;
with Russia standing out for
her present contentions, unsound and
unwise, the Genoa Conference will
have failed in its big purpose and
Russia will have failed in commanding
world support, world financing
and the cordial good feeling of the
world that the world would like to
give her.
Without Shame.
A business agent of the plumbers'
union was convicted of extortion a
year ago, thanks to the exposure of
his methods by the Lockwood Hous
lng Committee. When this man,
Chapman, came out of prison the
union restored him to his place as
walking delegate. The Loekwood
committee put such pressure on the
union that Chapman resigned.
It developed at a session of the
Housing Committee on Thursday
that the union, in accepting Chapman's
resignation, had expressed
its "deep regret," that it had given
him a vote of ennfidence and that he
had been made a member of the
union's committee on jurisdictional
"Aren't you ashamed of yourselves?"
asked Sampex, Untebmtkb,
the committee's counsel, of James
Morris6EY, recording secretary of the
plumbers' union. To this Moesisset
list with only 180 trees.
Throughout the country the num- *
ber of apple trees Beems to have re- v
mained about stationary during the r
last decade. In six States there have '
been large increases, totaling 2.491, 1
209 tree^ bat these figures offset "
by heavy decreases in the .\ tbwest '
ind in the central Western S'-.tcs. a
in Washington and Oregon many c
Farm and home orchards have dteap- t
peered, and in the central West various
foes have wrought much damage 1
to trees. These pests include the F
borer, which perforates the trunk a v
little above the ground; the woolly d
aphis, which attacks the tender c
shoots; the caterpillar, which de- "
vours the leaves; the canker worm, *
Uu? apple moth and other enemies, F
which have almost ruined many fine ^
central Western orchards. Statistics 1
covering the number of trees de- 11
stroyed by these pests are not avail- 1
able, but that the total would offset 8
increases elsewhere is probable. 0
In New England the apple output r
has declined with other agricultural ^
products, which IS to be lamented on
sentimental grounds If on no other, d
For New England was the first I
American home of the apple. Early t
ettlera brought trees from England c

union's indorsement of Chapman;
that Chapman was a "faithful servant
of the union," and that "we don't
regard Jhim guilty; he was carrying
out the mandates of our body."
For all the exposure of their methods,
for all the punishment of their '
leading crooks, for all the aversion '
which the public feels toward them,
these labor czars have had no change 1
of heart. Their underlings show no 1
sense of the resentment toward them 1
that all honest men should feel.
Bbindkix is shown up as a scoundrel
who not only held up builders
and delayed housing but also robbed
the treasury of his own union. But
Brindell still rules his union from
his cell. Honest men in the organi- 1
zation who try to establish clean 1
methods are thrown out because |1
Bbindkix hates them and Bbindelx, ^
orders their expulsion.
Whv should a minor official like *
Mobrisset be ashamed of himself
when Sam Gomfebh, the Great Mogul
of the American Federation, is not
ashamed? Less than a month ago
Gomfers excused Brindell on the
ground that he was affected by a system
which had grown up since Sam
Parks began his rascality?and then
excused Sam Parks because he had
been poor and the bribes offered to
him had been large.
The System is still defiant and unashamed.
Brindell will emerge
from Sing Sing a hero. The public
will suffer until the last ounce of its
patience is gone. The only hope is
in the continuation of the Legislative
Housing Committee and the impartial
administration of Justice.
The bosses will not learn shame.
They must learn fear.
Concerning Apples.
The Department of Agriculture has
crowned Delaware with a championship
wreath of apple blossoms. In
the number of apple trees to the
square mile in her orchards Delaware
leads all the other States. She has
548 apple trees to the square mile.
Mew York comes next with 287 trees. 0
Virginia is third with 256 trees, and 0
the State of Washington, famous for h
her apples, takes fourth rank in the
known to this day as Apple Island. <
From that starting point apple tree |
planting spread. The Indians helped i
on the good work and Indian or- I
chards became common. The fame i
of New England apples spread all I
over the world. Soon after Fred- i
ebick Tldob of Bostou began exporting
ice to tropical countries in 1805
the exportation of apples as acconr
panying cargoes followed. New Eng- j
land apples in prime condition were (
laid down in all the ice markets of
India. China and Smith America
where they commanded quick sales <
at high prices.
The American apple still holds its
prestige the world over, but, alas, its
home price has soared to heights j
painful to the plain American
Chicago's Reign of Terror. <
The police, the machinery of jus- 1
tice and the citizens of Chicago have I
met a desperate situation with quick ! I
and strong resistance and they seem 1
to have the upper hand. The indict- 1
ment of eight leaders of the thug ele- t
ment in organized labor on charges t
of murder should give pause to the | f
crew that lias been trying to terror- 1
ize the city. a
The Chicago conspiracy yas slm- t
pie and savage. The Chicago building
trades agreed to submit their j
wage disagreement to an arbitrator, t
Judge Landis. Some of the labor : t
leaders, men of the type that grqws j;
fat on Btrikes, refused to accept the a
Landis award. When a building tya?
started on the Landis terms it was
bombed. When the police were sent
to protect the property two of them
were murdered. The bombing con- ^
tinned until a Chicago Judge declared
that the city was practically
in a state of war.
It was a deliberate war, with the
violence committed in cold blood, ac- v
cording to Chief of Police Fitzmor- 0
bis. The pay of the bomb throw- 4
ers ranged from $50 for a bomb con- n
taining one stick of dynamite to $250
for a six stick bomb. The criminals
who slugged workmen received from 1
$50 to $150 for each job, the highest v
price being paid for breaking the 1<
victim's arms or legs. t b
Chicago is coming in for some d
mealymouth criticism because the po- v
lice rounded up 400 prisoners in their
raids on labor union headquarters 5
and because most of the prisoners c
were held without bail. But New o
York, which recently had a taste ofj
letting the bailed criminal go back1 si
to his crime, knows how the people! j
of Chicago feel. Chicago is aroused,'n
and fortunately so. The police have j a
behind them not only a citizens' j w
committee which has raised $6,000,-; jj
D00 to end the reign of terror; they t]
have with them the decent union: j,
men who are shocked by the murder S(
and rioting done by criminals in the ' j,
name of labor. h
Chicago's motto is "I Will" and It
looks as if she had not forgotten it. c
Our Almshouse Population. n
In the first issue of Tiie New York J"
Herald attention was called to the 1
act that there were tlmn 6,457 paupers |
n the almshouses of New York State,
rhe population of the State was about "
!,160,000, or approximately a third of 1
hat of the city of New York of tolay,
while the State population in the j f(
nterval has increased by more than a
sight and a quarter millions. - ''
Despite this enormous growth in ei
topulatlon the almshouse population I(
las Increased by only a little more 11
han 3,600. It is now approximately
.0,000. And an apparently encouragng
feature of this exhibit is that for 1"

ias remained approximately station-!
iry, with a tendency of late to re- 01
edc, according to statistics prepared 11
>y the State Charities Aid Associa- 11
ion. d
On its face 'the stationary, or 11
ilightly recessionary, character of the b
ilmshouse population figures seems 11
o warrant optimistic expectation.
Jut there are offsetting facts to be ^
onsidered. The proportionately smalt
ncrease in poorhouse population to- 01
lay is largely due to changed classifl- la
ations and distributions of persons r<
lependent upon public charity. No h
urther back than 1872, and fox many "I
ears thereafter, the poorhouse was f?
he sole refuge for all dependent
rards of the State except criminals. V)
n it were packed men and women, tl
Id and young, the sicjf and well, sane w
nd insane, the lame, the halt and the h<
iltnd. practically regardless of men- 01
al or physical shortcomings.
It was not because the State wished
o be niggardly, still less crnel. It si
ras because the care of dependents,
nental deficients and the like was!
Ittle understood. In the half cen- |
ury since 1872 the progress made in w
lie study of the problem of raring for ai
he helpless has been notable. From h<
. chaotic jumble the care of public ^
harges has been brought to somehing
like a science.
If (IIIaMO A f .1 a1 1 '1 llAt.A It AA a annnt

100I of misery, the poorhouse, those
rhose mental and bodily afflictions
lemaoded separate and specialized
are. Hospitals and asylums of varl>us
kinds haye all but depopulated
he poorhouse, as it was once known. Tl
raetlcally all admissions to the poorlouse
nowadays are of old people,
'hree-flfths of them are men and
learly one-half are of foreign birth. B
'en thousand enter every year and
n equal number go out. A quarter
f the exits are to the grave. The ''
emalnlng 7,!)00 are mere winter
warders. A,
There Is a distinct tendency toward 1

mproved economic conditions and

harlty organizations are among the
a uses contributory to this result
f the downward tendency were to
continue as it has been going for the
past five years the poorhouse would
joon be vacant. But this is scarcely
to be looked for. Human frailty is
lot likely to be eliminated, though
the ways in which its victims are
tided may be steadily improved.

Woman's Sphere.
Should She Be a Good Housewife o:
a Cog In Business!
To Thh Nbw York Hbhalp : In so fa
as I can Judge the critics of Klizabetl
Jones, the married flapper, fail to not
what I believe she sought to focus at
tention upon. Mrs. Joires expressed thi
opinion that young women were betnl
developed alopg wrong lines.
If a husband is expected to provtdi
money with which to maintain a hom<
from the time of the marriage is 1'
unjust to demand that the wife shal
be competent at the time of the mar
rlage to manage the home? There fi
no doubt the woman who discover!
after marriage that her mate cannot
provide money necessary to support th<
home has been imposed upon. Does 11
not follow that tho man who marries
a woman who can neither coolt noi
wash, iron nor sew has been lmposec
upon also?
Mrs. Jones may be correct In her reasoning.
Perhaps it would be better for
the community and for the nation il
young women could be developed a:
potential wives, mothers, home makers
ratWer than as cogs in the wheel ol
commercial life.

Linguistic Question Raised by the
Sew Style Locomotion.
To The Jiir York Haute: Youi
editorial article on "Quadrupedestrian"
raises a question as to nomenclature
If a quadrupedestrian is one who effects
locomotion with more or less ease, dignity
and comfort on all fours, then
those of us who still cling to the fashion
in vogue for some years of getting
about?when we lacfc taxi fare or art
out of gas?on our two hind legs are
duopedestrians. "Webster gives the word
"pedestrian" as:
1. One who walks or Journeys on toot;
a footman or foot traveler. k
2. One noted for his powers of walktng
or running; a foot racer.
I have from time to time seen many
a so-called pedestrian, carrying a letter
from the Mayor of Chicago or some
other outlying district, arrive at the
City Hall and solemnly hand his missive
to the Mayor amid great applause
from those of the noDulatlon who liarl
nothing' bettor to do than to stand
around and watch the proceeding.
Just why a letter was Intrusted to
so slow a method of travel as walking
when for years we have had the mails,
the telegraph, later the long distance
telephone and now the wireless, heaven
only knows; but that is aside of the
It seems that all the while these
trenchant trudgers, who In their simplicity
were not only content but proud
to be kpown as pedestrians, were
really duopedestrlans but didn't know
it. And how about the unfortunate who
gets about on one leg with the aid of
a crutch? Is he a monopedestrlan?
F'urther, the still more unlucky one who
gets about on two wooden legs, which
of course are not legs at all but makeshifts,
how is he classed?
To one who like myself Is limited in
his T.atin to the single word "ignoramus"
this leads entirely beyond his
linguistic depth. I appeal to you to
I set me right In this matter. T. I\

Shut Out.
j American Tobaoco In France and
French Cognac In America.
I To The Nkw York Herald: Varian
' Bank* seems to think that the refusal
of the French Government to allow *he
Importation of two pounds of American
tobacco Into France Justifies tha Senate
rate of 60 per cent, duty on French
cloves, and inquires, "W+iat would Mr.
Utard'a feelings be if he learned that
our Government would not allow the
entry of French gloves under any conditions?"
May I answer by asking a second
question, "What would Mr. Banks's feel,
ings be If our Government would not
allow him to Import two gallons of the
best French cognac presented to him by
a friendly Frenchman? Would he Immediately
approve a high tariff by France
against products of the United States?"
The thrco old ladles who made a fine
living by taking In each other's washing
at least were only out the transportation,
but the high tariff Idea at
present wishes to sell to everybody, buy
I from nobody, and as sales to France
cannot) bo paid for In fold they can
only bo paid for by purchases, and In
trying to prohibit these the high tariff
leaves the American consumer the
doubtful benefits of high prices and reduced
exports. Edwabd Thompson.

Protecting the Forests.
Volunteer* Are Ready to Assist Congervatlon
To Tub New York Herald: The rec'
nrd of forest fires In New York State,
In New England, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey and Maryland Is disheartening.
P*rt of this destruction has been
brought about by natural causes, but
this should not equal 20 per cent of
j the total. This Is a matter which cannot
be entirely remedied, but the enormous
remaining loss of SO per cent, can
he overcome almost entirely through assistance
of volunteers.
Take, for Instance, New York .State,
New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Their
conservation commissions have n certain
number of volunteers anxious to
protect the natural resources of these
States. The volunteer* ventlm it.* ?

the heading of campers. They do every,
thing possible to prevent that which is
wrong and contrary to Btate laws.
Why not let the different States consider
this matter and give a little authority
to selected members who would
work wondere for absolutely no compensation?

A pair of spectacles will ba sent from
Hutchinson to a mission station In ths eaIrsms
north of Alaska, one of the farthest
north posts In that country. Mrs. Fitegeralri,
wife of tho missionary there, was a former
Hutchinson girl, Ituth Borgsr. She writes
that one of the faithful native Christiana
there, ?n elder In the native church,
needs glssses. The nearest optlrlan Is probably
a thousand miles from there. A number

culosia in which |2,000,00o will be spent I
In thia State by the Milbank Memorial ]
s Fund over a period at Ave years, were
> discussed at the Blltmoru yesterday at I
t the second day's session of the fiftieth t
1 anniversary of the State Charities Aid (
. Association. f
, omci&ls charged with the adminlstra- f
9 tlon of the State hospitals dented re- f
cent statements made by Bird S. Coler, ii
Commissioner of Public Welfare, and
1 former Municipal Justice Hoffman that J
t sane persons are being committed to t
) State hospitals and I hat others are con. H
r lined much longer than necessary. c
I Dr. C. Floyd Havilgnd. chairman of r
the State Hospital Commission, said: ]i
"It is absurd to think that patients t
are ever Improperly detained in hos-t (
pitgls. In the first place, there is the a
f urgent necessity of relieving overcrowd- i
s lng. The Increase In the number ot p
i patients admitted during the year end- c
j ing this June will be larger than at ]
any ether time In the history of the p
State, and the same was true last year, p
Liberal Parole Poller. t
"The present liberal parole policy ^
shows that the hospitals are making a
every effort to restore patients to so- a
clety as soon as possible. - In fact, there '
' is far more danger a mental patient *
may fail to receive hospital care and r
treatment than there is of Improper C
' detention. There are now about 3,00(1 '
patients on parole in a total of 43,000.
"The fear of illegal commitment is a r>
i heritage of the past and is bas-^d on
. false conceptions. Jt may be asserted
{ that no person in a normal menta. con- ?
I dition could bo committed to a State
' ; hospital under our present laws. The
r, laws of New York respecting admission
! of patients are probably the most eni
lightened of any such statutes yet "
I framed." .
Dr. Havlland said h$ believed the Increase
In insanity could be ascribed
largely to post-war conditions. Thero ,
will be 1,400 additional beds Installed
this ^ear, he said, and as many next
year. g
Henry M- Sage, former State Senator,
' chairman of the Hospital Development
i Commission, said he had visited .ill the jj
i State hospitals, some of them many a
times, and had found that the patients p
( receive expert medical sifpervislon and b
advanced hospital facilities. v
Dr. George H. Kirby, director of the 'k
Psychiatric Institute on Ward's Island, r
said : "A few days ago I encountered a \
judge who refuses to commit patients y
to State hospitals unless it la shown 1
they are cither suicidal or homicldul. \
, Many of you probably read with amaze- a
ment the statement, attributed to a former
city judge, that thousands of sane g
persons are looked up and go mad in
asylums to which they are railroaded.
' It Is not only the ordinary citizen that
needs education." 0
Hospitals Give information. d
Dr. Havlland declared that the pres- b
ent day hospital must be a center .from \
which can be given out information on ii
all matters -pertaining to the mainte- n
r.ance of mental health, as well as the t1
treatment of persona mentally diseased, d
