-12 o'Clock and Sold Out." Money at Owner. The Hawk of Steal. Cowards Advancing. By ARTHUR BRI8BANE. < Cop, rig hi 111* > Day before yesterday the Chl Herald and Examiner chang ed lt? price to tan cent*, for the Sunday edition, because Increase 5?** paper made it necessary. Ke?dera know what they want, and will pay for it. On Sunday this message came from Howey and Williams, ardent ^oung geniuses, . sponsible, respectively, for . managing editorship and cir culation management of the Her ald and Examiner: "Twelve o'clock and we are sold out." Other parts of the massage are suppreaaed, bo Christianity says never men tion anything that would hurt the Xactings of your competitor. In New York city also people know what they want Hearst's Naw York American ia the only Sunday newspaper that aalls for tan cents. Other papers sell for aoven. The New York Sunday American's circulation exceeda by hundreda of thouaanda that of any Sunday paper in Naw York city or "inhere else in the United States. Theae facta are mentioned be cause editors and publishers are interested. Lowden, Governor of Illinois, offers Senator Borah all facts con cerning Presidential campaign ex penses. This must be said for Mr. Lowden: What money he spends -is LOWDEN'S money. That ! makes a difference. If a man spends hia own money and ia elect ed, he OWNS himself after elec tion. When a man spends somebody else's money the owners of the money that he spent may own him. The English, determined wisely to rule the air as they have ruled the oceans, announce a flying ma chine that rises from the deck of a battleship, flies, returns and alights on that same battleship's deck in safety. This means prog ress. The floating fort of steel will in future hunt aa the ancient no bleman uaed to do. He rode oUt with hawk on wrist and sent the hawk for the bird to The battleship will rids out with its dynamite-carrying hawks of st?el oa its daek, sending them out to kill and ?raw back for orders. I This win make war pic Incidentally, it will enable ? I Cm fleet to anchor earn tafA2tt&a& the Japanese treaty should make it necessary, thence aending flying hawks^ to drop dynamite on New York or San Francisco, returning to the battleships for more sup plies. <After the thins; has been done somebody in the United States will waks up once more, spend a bil lion dollars for flying machines in a hurry and, once more, get noth ing for the money, except pros parity for profiteers. The New York Post, edited by J. Pierpont Morgan's energetic ybung partner, Lamont, carried yesterday the following headline: "Johnson Likely to Carry Detroit. Forces of Unrest Backing West erner." The patriotic Englishman bought a peep-show displaying a Crimean battle scene. On exami r.totion he found, too late, that it Represented a British defeat. He t made the bfest of it, and shrieked to crowds at the Derby: "Step up, ladies and gentlemen; see the great battle in the front, the cowardly Russians advancing; in the rear, the brave Englishmen retreating!" The J. P. Morgan partner, like the patriotic Englishman, makes the best of the fact that his side is being whipped. Not forces of unrest, but forces that dislike J. P. Morgan candi dates and policies, are backing Johnson. In Detroit, where six dollars a day is a moderate wage, there is no "unrest" worth men tion. ? The international exchange sit uation is turning rapidly in favor of England. Yesterday the pound went above four dollars for the first time this year. Two months ago the pound sold for 13.19. The ole world will congratulate Eng nd on this change. It means re construction, that the world needs, and the English are wise enough to realize that to build themselves up they must help others to build. Tney know they cannot be happy or successful in England with a lot of national corpses decaying around them. If the United States could send to England some of its AVERAGE human intelligence and get in re turn some of England's EXCEP TIONAL statesmanship, it would be a good trade?profitable to both countries' To celebrate.Easter there was a fight in Jerusalem, and 188 were hurt. As usual, on this solemn festival, the worst of the fighting was at the tomb of the founder of Christisnity. , _ , For many years, when the Turks were in charge, their soldiers had great difficulty at Easter, Christ mas and other Christian festivals, keepin? different kinds of Chris tians from fighting each other. Now that the Turk has been driven out you might hope for something better, but you would hope in vain. first W" ff con! WEATHER i ?nk?kl, llgkl rate U ?Ul nuaii !>???? t?M ?

VOTES NAVAL BASE FOR SAN FRANCISCO Daniels Appears Before Senate Committee to Ask $100,000, 000 for Proposed Plan. The Senate Naval Affairs Commit tee today unanimously decided on the establishment of a deep water naval base oh San Francisco bay. The base to be recommended will be either the Hunter's Point or Oak land sites, it was agreed. Secretary Danlela appeared before the committee today, and asked a tentative sum of 110.000,000 for the development of the proposed base. The committee voted $1,000,000 for preliminary work. At the request of the Secretary, a board of naval! officers will be ap pointed to survey the two sites and make recommendations as to which is best for the proposed base. Their report will be made not later than Oc tober 1, 1920. In Dark mm to Cost.

The base will be estab lished and appropriations made from time to time to develop It. The base will'be for the docking and repair of the eapltal ships of the navy, many of which now are at tached to the Pacific fleet.

SAYS U. S. PROTESTS FRENCH INVASION London Hears America Has En tered Objection to Occupa tion of Germany. LONDON. April 6.?It was reported In authoratlve quarters that Washing ton has protested against the French occupation of towns In the German neutral zone. The protest was Mid to have been made In "clear terms." U. S. DENIES PROTEST ON ADVANCE OF FRENCH The United States has not made any formal protest against the French occupation of cities in the neutral ssone of Germany, It was officially stated today. This statement followed Secretary Colby's refusal to comment on reports that a protest had gone forward. Secretary Colby did not meet the newspaper men in the usual morning conference. Secretary Colby has had a long con ference with Ambassador Jusserand, of France, and It Is possible that an informal statement of the attitude of the United States has been made. Officials indicated the United States has not yet seen Its way clear to change Its position in favor of per mitting the Oerman government to send troops Into the Ruhr district. It was admitted, however, that It Is believed here the Oerman government may have erred In sending too many troops Into that territory, thus arous ing unduly French fears. Military experts expressed the be- , lief that the occupation of Frank-1 fort and other cities by the French would be of Utile military value to I the French In warding off any atta> k from Germany, but expressed the opinion that the movement was mere ly for a moral effect.
