itSMALL STATES TIMID
ON DELICATE POINTS
General Desire of Minor
Nations to Avoid Possi
bility of Rupture; U. S.
Could Balance Assembly.
By MILTON BRONNER
N. E. A. Staff Correspondent
GENEVA, Switzerland. Nov. 28.
Tbla first league assembly has repre
sentatives from most of the civilized
wcrld; great statesmen, orators, tech
meal advisers, and in fact everything
except what the United States can ex
clusively give council of on great
world power which has no entangling
auances, is not hedged m by neighbor
lag Jealous states and not confronted
by Inherited centuries-old racial
hatreds.
An American sitting on the side
lines here, finds himself constantly
wishing that America, were in the
league, represented in the assembly by
cur brainiest men, imparting to discus
aions American candor, courage, dls
lnterestedness and even shirtsleeve
diplomacy.
Small States Timid
Big Questions are being considered
by the assembly that vitally effect the
major powers and minor nations, mak
ing a common cause with them. Other
lower powers naturally are rather
timid In calling a spade a spade. There
is a general natural desire not only to
avoid giving offense , but anything
leading to danger pf rupture in the
usiembly.
On many big questions the United
States could take the bolder step
without giving offense. For Instance,
the big future question is going to be
faithful observance of Article 18 of the
covenant, providing that all treaties
entered into hereafter by league mem-
l-ers shall be forthwith registered with
the secretariat and published. Fur
thermore, no treaty shall be binding
until registered.
This proviso, undoubtedly written In
by Americans, embodies our diplomatic
methods.
America to Bar Secrecy
Recently France and Belgium drew
up plans for military measures to meet
any possible new German aggression.
The terms of this treaty were not reg
istered with the league secretariat, but
they were embodied in a letter stating
that the document had been agreed
upon and was purely defensive.
Various assembly speakers have
skirted delicately around this subject,
without specifically mentioning this
concrete case.
Under our constitution no such thing
as a secret treaty is possible because,!
lifter' the senate approves, all facts are
published in full. America, if repre
sented in the assembly, could therefore
plead that all nations do, under the
covenant, what we have always volun
tarily done.
Germany Displays Diplomacy
I am able ,ln this connection, to re
veal some Interesting facts. Although
Germany is not in this league and not
hound by Article 18, she has neverthe
less cleverly mado a point of reglster
Vjrg with the secretariat all recent
i tveaties. These include three with
' -France about the Versailles treaty, an
other regarding the port of Kiel and
another with Sweden regarding the
1911 treaty, two with the Letts con
cerning reciprocal exchange of prisoners-
and- resumption of friendly rela
tions, two with Russia regarding re
patriation of prisoners of war.
Another delicate matter the assem-
Mv considering Is the reduction of
armaments. Great European powers,
i..is iea.w responsibilities In Europe
Asia and Africa, are going slow. Small
nations, particularly Scandinavian,
Dutch. Swiss and Czech passionately
desire total disarmament.
Jaoanese Cynical

his interest in the development of Cen

Republican A, P. Leased Wire
GENEVA. Nov. 28. The question
whether countries shall be allowed to
control and dispose, of at will of their
natural resources is the subject of
sharp conflict la a committee of the
assembly. The contest arose over a
resolution by Ocsiav Ador of Switz
erland setting up a permanent eco
nomic and financial commission, one
of the duties of which would be to
examine measures for preventing mo
nopolies in raw materials and the
means of controlling their dlstrlbu
tlon.
The resolution Is based on article 23
Of the covenant, which assures all
states equitable rights. It Is supported
chiefly by Italy, Switzerland and other
countries not rich in raw materials
One of the strongest opponents of
the resolution is Sir George E. Foster
of Canada, who has taken the same
attitude as X. E. Rowell. also of Cana-
B. Carbajal. former " " "XT,
garded as Interference In internal af
fairs, to which Canada would never
submit.
Mr. Rowell at the same time said
that the entry of the United States
could not be hoped for if any such ir
terference were attempted.
The question of. mandates is another
difficult subject coming up this week.
The council has on. the agenda for
tomorrow the nomination of perma
nent mandate committee and another
committee at the same time will take
up tho general question In the form
of terms and control of mandates
This committee has recommended
that the United States be Invited to

Cardinal Logue
Decries Dublin'
Assassinations
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
DUBLIN, Nov. 2S Cardinal Logue,
the primate of Ireland, In a pastoral
letter read today in all the churches of
the arch diocese denounces the mur
ders in Ireland and declares that if a
balance were struck between last Sun
day's assassinations of officers and the
shooting by the police In Croke Park,
he believes It should be given against
the forces of the crown.
The cardinal's letters scathingly ar-
rainges the methods the government U
pursuing but warns the people "against
any assassinations, secret or open.
which would lead them Into any disor
der or crime." ;
The pastoral letter condemns in the
strongest terms Sunday tragedies, de
claring the belief that every man and
woman in Ireland deplored and de
tested these "cold blooded murders,"
which, he says, '"no object could ex
cuse and no motive justify," adding:
The perpetrators of such crimes are
not real patriots but enemies of their
countries."
Turning to the Croke Park affair, the
cardinal says the forces of the crown
() bound by their officers to protect
and not to destroy the people.
"The assassination of individuals Is
detestable crime and a terrible out
rage against God s law," he continues,
but It Is a greater shock to humanity,
graver outrage against the divine
ordinance whereby human life is pro
tected, to turn lethal weapons against
efen6eless, unarmed, closely packed
multitudes."

"Read la conjunction with the docu

Liverpool, among a number, were de

Eleven Fires in Liverpool s
LONDON. Nov. 28. A dispatch, to
the Press association from Liverpool
says
"An alarming outbreak of Sinn Fein
violence occurred Saturday night
shortly before 9 o'clock. Fire broke
out simultaneously both in the south
and north ends of Liverpool and also
in Bootle.
"There were seven fires in Bootle
and eleven in various parts of Liver
pool. '
"Subsequent discoveries revealed a
well planned Sinn Fein plot to' spread
fire among the warehouses in the dock
area. The fires were spread over al
most all of the whole seven miles of
the dock area." '
Owing to the Inflammable nature of
the contents of the warehouses, the
flames quickly gained a stronghold.
The local fire brigades were unable to
cope with the situation and were
obliged to call brigades from other
suburbs. The police took steps to pre
vent fuHher outbreaks by concentrat
ing policemen along the line of docks.
"Three youths, watching the sus
picious movements of two men at a
cotton Warehouse, warned the police,
who challenged the suspects. There
upon the latter bolted and fired upon
the police. The police were unhurt
but a bullet killed Daniel Ward, who
was among those who warned the police.
Damage Will Reach Million
It was found that all locks on some
warehouses had been cut with bolt cut
ters. Many empty petrol cans were
found on the scene. Each fire started
at more than one place."
"It appears that for each bunding
marked for destruction, there were al
lotted gangs numbering from four to
five men, one of whom stood sentry
w hile the others cut the locks and ap
plied the inflammables.
"Many fires were suppressed In
their early stages, and in these cases
there was clear evidence of incendiar
ism in the finding of rags soaked in,
parafln and empty petrol cans and bolt
cutters left behind. The most destruc
tive fires were, in two large cotton
warehouses on either side of Jordan
street, which were completely de
stroyed. "It Is impossible to estimate the
damage, but it is known it will run
