'th f~i0* 5(kte 3A D Y the pro-Jaspanese pees beSgi to -talk about the Lansing-Isii treaty. be is no swh treaty, there ever waP such a treaty and thpre will be such a treaty. With the insolence which caarac fIsd his disposition, Mr. Wilson atructqd Mr. Lansing to make an Pgreement with the Japanese en Voy, recognizing Japan's superior rights in China. Mr. Wilsog had i6 constitutional authority to imake kny such agreement without the ad gie and consent of the Senate. The Senate was never called upon for advice and' certainly never con seeted. Consequently the agreement is simply a scrap of paper,- without jthority, without effect and wholly .ulland void. Of course, what Japan wants i6 recognition of Japan's suzerainty over China, and the use of -that commercial add p9litical power to force the Uited States to eonsent to unrestricted Japanese immigra tion. 1, Well, we don't want either Chinese or Japanese immigrants. We wish them well in their own coun tries, and urgently- request them to stay out of our country. 'We are perfectly willing to let Chinese geople and territory and Japhnese people and territory alone; perfictly willing to trade with China and Japan; perfectly willing to keep the peace with them. But we do not want 'to force American iinii gration upon them or to have their immigration forced upon us. '. ~This scheme to open the Hawaiian Islands to yellow immigratiod is a mere smoke screen behind which Japan plans to move her millions of cheap and undesirable laborers on the road to American land and .American opportunities. Never mind whether it would help the island sugar planters or not. All the sugar in the world would be bought too dearly for nothing, if the condition of the purchase was the unrestricted admission of Asia's yellow men first to our island pos. sessions, and afterward to our own mainland territory. Keep this a white man's country. Keep the yellow breed out. How to Disarm. PBE8IDENT HARDING has called upon the newspapers of America to make a bpeoial ef fert to help the coming. conference on *orld disarmament to be success ful. We do not believe that Presideiat Harding will appeal in vain. We do not know a single newspaper w6rthy of consideration which will not .,el eense the most complete disarma mfist compatible with American safety. We wish that President Harding weuld appeal to the American press ts be whelly American 'and to insist that we aid him in adopting the Ujost effective course to procure mmplete disarmamnent. That course is to notify Great Briai,'which has already begn a hgewarship building program9 that we will not const to put our selves in her power any more than slhe is willing to consent to put her soe in our power, and that'if shb 'nqsts upon building to 'overmatch uE*e will build until we overmst$ her.' ,Whenever the British government realises that we menu this and that no amoeunt of British propaganda caa stop, us freas building to the lipit of our resources ie she intends t(satt'pmpt to maintain her control af the ess, she will abandon the seteupt and agree to aesept sn eesality of power with us. When that agreement is reached ayto e~ente disariasaet a& e protesting .against *hat is 'now as the AmeriOWa Valuation" plan adopted by the Fordney Tariff Bill, now pendinji Congress. The "Amer-iean Valua tion.I 'san is. a fundamental de0 Pil ro previous methods of stblishin g the value of imported goods as the basis for computing-the ad valorem tariff .duty on these goods. N The old method of computing the tariff rate on imported goods was to ascertain the value of those goods in the foreign market and then to com pute on that value the ad- valorem tariff rate. - * The Fordney innovation, known as .the "American Valuatipn" plan, abandons the foreign value as the bsis of computing the tariff rate and adopts the value of simliar goods in the United States or the wholesale price of the imported goods in the United States as the basis for establishing the tariff rate. The objection which the retail stores and other manufacturers make to this change in the method of computing the rate is that it makes. a confusion worse con founded. It throws away an experience in tfriff reckoning acqnire& through one hundred years of practice and it substitutes a new method which, even if correct and possi le of per fection after experience, '-ll in its earlier years be full of uncertainty, instability, confusion and embar rassment. Moreover, they contend that it s economically unsound and will never be capable of perfection. 'They say that it will put in the hands of American manufacturers who want to practice extortion the po*er of making the tariff again the mother of the trusts. They contend thmt under the "American Valua tion" the protective tariff will not be what it claims to be-a method both of raising revenue and of prd tecting American industry from competition with cheap labor abroad; that it will actually de prive the Ameridan people of the benefit of any foreign competition even after the foreign' competitor has paid the difference between the cost of his labor and the, post of the most expensive labor in the American market. . It will make it possible for any American Trust to raise the-tariff tax on any imported foreign article simply by raising the price of similar articles in the domestic market. The temptation to raise prices, to practice extortion, would thus have a double incentive. In other words, the higher the American manufacturer, scheming to become a profiteer, prices his goods, the higher will, be the tariff and the greater will' be his protec tion. The lower house of Congress has passed the f'ordney bill with the "American Valuation'/ scheme. It is now before the Senate, where we hope to see It amended. What.s~b On..

These talks vary from simple advies, asmeerning a man lik4 Ljnoolo, who ha4 enly a few books and a few chanayo but made the bext use of, them he ceuld, to the complicated recipes for sueeding th are given out by the geotlemen of the insurence eompanie and the get-rick schemes. Certain men whom we cay sucdessful,'hy which we mean that.they have got MONEY, have "auoe.mbd" without the quality of industry. They are the 'aairs, the. Wall Street geniuses, or others rho with tri have got the better of their fellow men, BUT THEY ARE NOT SUCESFUL. . Men of the same stamp have su4 even without sobriety or honesty. . To tell a young man thst- fie NEEDS certain qualities Is wasting his time and your own-except as you may direct his attention TO THE POSSIBILITY OF DEVELOPING IN HIMSELF the essentials of sueoess. Collis P. Huntington, asked to advise a young man, said: "Take ten thousand dollars and go' into the business of raising'rubber trees." The young man didn't have ten thousand dollars. Mr. Huntington said: "Well, go and get it before you come to me for advice." The greai railroad man's attitude is very mucli like that. of the ORDINARY adviser of the young. He says, "Be honest, be industrious, be self-denying, be courageous. patient, sober"-but he does not tell him how he CAN BE teethings. To make a real success y6u must have, Arst of all, IN DUSTRY-thie faculty of hard work. AND YOU CAN CULTIVATE THAT QUALITY IN YOURSEI. Map out what you are going to do each day, AND Do IT. Never let yourself get intd the habit of leaving a thing UNFINISHED. It is hard; for some time it is almost impossible. But .if you WILL IT, you can make yourself a hard- worker eventually. You must do that-that is the FIRST step to the real success. SELF-DENIAL in especially a matter of sel-education. Instead of putting your mind on the quesiion, "How can I amuse myself or dress myself?" say to yourself, "WHAT CAN I DO WITHOUT1 " Self-denial is not important simply because it saves your money-it is especially important because IT SAVES YOUR TIME AND 'YOUR VITALITY. Sobriety is, of course, a part of self-denial. If you don't smoke excessively or at all, if you don't drink zieessively or at all-you save money and you save vitality. If you on't pay foolish attention to dress-only neaness and n urns. are necessary to sugcese-you save the time and the thought that many men put on worthless worrying about their personal appearance. The most importat in the line of self-denial, perhaps, is TO MAKE YOURRELF NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU. Try to earn the approval of those who are worth while, and diamigs from your mind the opinion of the crowd that means nothing to you and can do nothing for yeu. More men waste enough time and energy and worry on the opinions of others to make them sumessful'if- they could be indifferent to public opinion. ENTHUSIASM is one of the great factors in success. It is important especially BECAUSE IT HELPS A MAN TO GET A START. Unfortunately, enthusiasm is one of the qualities most difficult to cultivate. It is almost a part of a man's own self, like hie'Jdark hair or regula- features, or wide shoul ders. Yet even enthusiasm CAN be cultivated, and it should be cultivated. begin by getting out of your mind the - critical, complaining, 4dissatisefed feelings. That is like pulling the weeds out of a field. Enthusiasm 'i4 largely a matter of vitality, health and strength. (Get up in the morning after eight hours' good-sleep and you will be enthusiastic-ready to attack any proposition. Get up with Aive hours' sleep~ and a night foolishly spent, and you will have no strength for enthusiksm. Cultivate your strength, save it, and train yourself to look enthusiasti cally and hopefully at the world, scorning its difficulties. Honesty has been talked of incessantly ever since the writing of the Ten Commannnts, and long before. There are niany false reputations and not a few big fortunes bqilt ON'DISHONESTY. There are some men who might have been rich If they had been dishonest, but who are poor now. But be sure that REAL success comes only to the honest ipan, to the man who 'thinks and works AND TREATS OTHER lIEN. HONESTLY. Whatever you do HAS TO BE& DONE ABSOLUTELY BY THE EXERCISE OF YOUB OWN. WILL POWER; IF YOU DECEIVE YOURSELF, BL.AMTNG OTHERS INSTEAD OF YOURETF, YOU WILL NEVER GET AflEAD. YOU MUST BE YOUR OWN MOST SEVERE JUDGE. Remember that It is not sufficient to WISH for success or to ADMTRE the qualities that make success. You, must develop those qualities and use them.. There is one feature of real -sueces about which we shall say litte Thti NEFNNS.It is the greatest, highest quality et all-although the usual talkers cm suc ess do not mention it. Unselfishness enters Into our modern calculations but little. Yet, any man who would be truly get in his aehievemsents must have for inspiration an unselfis desire to be of use to other-men. He may pile up millionsabut he will not be oine of the world's really great sne unless galled lthe emnsolousne that a aman's Ar st ghm jast~i to to aes eothers better of and fohr 6 b I ew te eel.
