A MOMENTOUS CONFERENCE '
The enthusiastic welcome given
the distinguished representatives of
Qreat Britain who have just arrived
in this country speaks the true feel
ing of the American nation toward
its new ally. It Is no small distinc
tion that has been bestowed upon the
United Stutee In the visit of Arthur
J. Balfour, British foreign secretary,
and his party. Not since the confer
ence at Vienna, 100 years ago, have
BUch high dignitaries of Qreat Britain
visited a foreign power on an official
lesion as those who are now at
ashlngton to confer with President
wllson and his advisers as to the part
we will play In the great war for the
freedom of the world.
It Is to be hoped that the feeling
thus engendered will moan the estab
lishment of a permanent close rela
tionship between tho two great Eng
lish-speaking powers of the world,
representing, as they do, the govern
ment of the people, a guarantee of
popular rights and of human liberty.
Just as the Spanish war brought
the United States forward out of her
eecluston as a world power, so tho
entry of the United States Into the
present great struggle places her In
the league of nations that must here
after guarantee peace and safety of
all peoples that Inhabit the earth.
The days of our Isolation have pass
ed. The great resources of this na
tion and the moral, physical and In
tellectual ability of the American
people must hereafter be used for the
benefit of humanity. To this ond the
greatest good can be accomplished,
We believe, through a close and per
manent alliance of tho United States,
France and Great Britain, founded
on the principles so ably set forth '.n
President Wilson's war message to
songrese. This Idea Is summed up <n
what Mr. Balfour himself has termed
the President's "most apt and vivid
phrase," "The world must be made
»afe for democracy."
Mr. Balfour comes to this country
^flth full power to bind the British
omplre to any arrangements that ho
may choose to make. Today will be
«ln the most momentous conference
that has ever been carried on In the
Xngltsh tongue. As we turn our face
forward to the great task that lies
before us, past differences are for
gotten. old sores are healed, and two
Croat English-speaking democracies
Join handi In hearty accord for the
purpose of establishing for all times
tho rights of the peoples of the earth
to govern themselves, especially for
guaranteeing the safety of little na
tlons. It is a moat laudable purpose
' and on· fully worthy Of the Ideals of
the American people. We can well
afford to Ignore past tradition· and
take auch a stand for civilisation and
for humanity.
LET the colors fly
Let the union Jack of Great Britain
and the trl-color of France be dis
played along with the stars and
stripes. Great Britain and France
are our allies, and they have sent
their distinguished men to this coun
try to confer with us as to the carry
ing on of the war. These representa
tives are the guests of the nation,
and the nation should show them the
honor that is due them.
The United States has long been
isolated, having lived almost unto
herself, so that it Is hard for the
people hero to become accustomed to
seeing any other flag than that of
the stars and stripes. But we are
just as courteous and respectful as
any nation on earth, and If Great
Britain can honor us as no other
nation has been honored, by flying
the stars and stripes from the Vic
toria Tower over parliament house,
side by side with the union Jack, wo
are sure the American people can
show equal regard for the emblem
of the British empire. The fraternal
feeling that now exists between tho
two great English speakliig nations
must never be allowed to cool.
FLY TIME AGAIN
Fly time Is at hand. With the first
real spring days doors and windows
are opened, and the spring air, bring
ing with It warmth and sunshine, Is
welcomed Into the houses. But un
less Immediate steps are taken to
guard against them, the flies will also
swarm through the open windows
and doors to flnd lodgement for the
remainder of the summer.
In these days when we are urging
the greatest efficiency and conserva
tion along every line, health must
not be ignored. One of the greatest
sources of infection and spreading of
disease is the fly. We have had
numerous campaigns before In an
effort to stamp out this nuisance, but
unless we are eternally vigilant the
fly will get in and got the best of us.
Now Is the time to screen doors and
windows and take every precaution
that the fly pest does not get such a
start that we cannot overcome it
later.
Garbage and rubbish heaps should
be carefully guarded and covered.
We must fight the danger out of
doors as well as Inside. This must
be done If we are to do our full duty
toward ourselves and our neighbors
this summer.
USE JUDGMENT; KEEP OOOIj
These are days when everyone In
working undej ejtreme tension. The
Jî'bîiittdi m<ive or noise out 'arthTf
ordinary arouses suspicion and Is
likely to start something. It Is,
therefore, necessary that everybody
use extreme care, avoid hasty action
and think well before speaking. A
chance remark may lead to an argu
ment that, in turn, may bring on a
riot causing a possible loss of life.
With soldiers all about guarding
various important points, there is
likely to be a clash between military
and civil authority. It Is for the civil
authorities to remember that the
nation Is at war. Extreme precau
tions are necessary, and the greatest
latitude must be given the soldiers in
the performance of their duty. Per
sons accustomed to almost unlimited
freedom in passing to and fro, must
give heed to the military man who
has a serious duty to perform. He Is
not stationed at various points with
a rifle In his hands merely as an or
nament. No matter what you may
think your rights are, when a guard
or sentry commands you to halt you
must do so. A word or two of ex
planation may set things right and
the Incident will close. A few hot
words, a run to cover or any slight
move out of the ordinary Is likely to
lead to dlro results. Above all, keep
cool and guard your tongue.
At the same time military authori
ties who are placed about In differ
ent communities must realize that
even though the nation Is at war,
communities in which the soldiers
are stationed are not under martial j
law, and, therefore, the civil author^
lty still predominates. Guardsmen
who but a short time ago were
private citizens like the rost of us,
may be apt to over-estimate their
authority and claim Jurisdiction
where there have no right.
Careful Judgment le necessary.
While we are willing to concede to
the soldiers every possible assistance,
knowing full well the dangers that
surround us in time of war, It must
be remembered that this nation Is
different from Germany, whero
everything gives way to military
oust. It Is up to everyone to do his
part, overlook a great many things
that may be annoying, and avoid
suspicious actions.
We are bound to suffer Inconven
iences during these trying times. But
with the whole \?orld involved in the
greatest struggle history has ever
known, it Is something that must be
endured In order that militarism may
be overthrown once for all and the
rulo of the people firmly established
throughout the world.
Not the least significant sign of
loyalty in Forth Amboy Is the liberal
display of the stars and stripes In the
so-called foreign sections of the city. |
These men who have come here from
foreign lands to enjoy the advantages
of a. free country are just as anxious '
to keep it free and to extend the
blessings of a free government <o
theiV fellows across the sea as any
one else. The foreign born residents
are not to be outdone In the matter
of patriotism to the United States.
It is well for the state highway
commission to tackle Route No. 4,
which leads through this city to the
coast resorts, ft ret. The travel on this
route fully warrants immediate at
tention, and the bridge over the
Karltan must be rebuilt. If there Is
any money left after this Is done, the
other routes can be taken up.
If our allies abroad can keep up
their drive for another week or two
at the same pace they have been go
ing the war will be ended before
summer is over.
Two of the seized German ships
are already ready for service. Load
them with food and munition· for
our allies and see if the German
U-boats will sink them.
There is not a moment to be lost
if real help is to be given the farm
[ ers. The seeds must be planted over
a greatly increased area. The trouble
Is to find help to do the planting.
UNCLE HI NOT TO BE BLAMED
FOR THE TROUBLE.

HI· Houeewarmlng System Wat All
Right, but Hard Luck Took a
Hand In the Game and Re
sults Were Disastrous.
"So your Uncle Hiram Peabody wa»
here while your husband was travel- j
lng, and his wife was nursing her
grandchildren," said Mrs. Qreen, set
tling herself for a chat. "I expect he
enjoyed his visit?"
"Most of the time," answered Mrs.
Middle. "He was as pleased as a boy
to get here, and for a while he talked
as If he'd like to live In town, where
there were so many clever inventions
to look at. He's quite an Inventor him
self, you know, and has all sorts of
automatic arrangements In his house
and barn. Even here he rigged a track
down cellar to run the coal and ashes
back aud forth, and fixed the clothes
lines a new way the first week, and
was kind of vexed because I didn't care
for a trapdoor In the kitchen and a
dumb-waiter to the cellar.
"Then he went Into a brown study '
over something, and took to staying '
down collar most of the time. One day
I missed an old alarm clock from
Henry's den, the meat grinder, a spring .
from the laundry door, the can opener (
and the hinges from the salt box. Just ]
then Uncle Hiram ran up the collar 1
stairs, all mussed and sooty, but sinll- 1
lng, and Insisted that I must go right
down and see his invention for open
ing the furnace drafts in the morning.
It was clever, too, with wires and pul· 1
leys overhead, and a piece of broom j
handle fitted on the clock winder, ao
that when th· alarm went off It
dropped a _welgbt—m,^m£8fc>->ilndTerT.
mind you I—and somehow opened th« J
drafts, so that the bouse would be
warm when we got up. Uncle wa·
tickled to death with It, and of course (
X admitted It; but I warned him not
to set his alarm too early, for our fur
nace has a tremendous draft.
"It worked first rate for a few dnys, !
but the old clock got to acting up;
sometimes It wouldn't go off, and then
again a little Jar would start the alarm
while uncle was setting It, so he had !
to come upstairs on tiptoe. The night
before Henry came there was α cold
snap and a high wind, and wa want to
bed early, for he was to arrive about
six in the morning. About two I woke
up with a start. It was so hot I could
hardly breathe, and 'ere was a strong
scorched smell. Then I heard a racket
like pots and pans falling downstairs.
" 'Burglars, or fire, or both Γ says I to
myself, all bewildered ; and I made for
the upstairs telephone and called up
the emergency number before I was
awake enough to know whether I want
ed the police or the fire department.
It seems they understood I wanted
both. Uncle Hiram's room was empty,
and I began to think that maybe I'd
been hasty about telephoning. I got
Henry's old revolver and went down
cautiously. The kitchen gas was burn
ing, and the cellar door was open, and
the cooking things that hang In the cel
lnrway were strewn all the way dowD
the stairs. Someone was down cellar,
banging around and saying things, and
I thought nncle might be struggling
with a burglar. So I called, 'Surren
der or TO shoot Γ But Uncle ΗI rum
called back :
" lion ι βηοοι, nun m, ιι » omjr uiei
Get me a pall of water, quick Γ
"Yon see, hie alarm had gone off too
•oon; and as uncle had the warmest
room In the house, he had waked up
and rushed down to see about It. He
fore I could get the water, two police
men and the Are englues came and a
good big crowd, too. The house wasn't
on Are, but so near it th»!re was no fun
In It ; and the firemen sJiid things tlmt
hurt uncle's feelings, and so did Henry
when he came.
"I'oor Uncle Hlram wasn't the same
after that. He hardly noticed the ma
chinery blueprints Henry brought
heme, which showed he was low in his
mind, and he didn't even read the scien
tific Journals. Πβ lost his appetite and
began to criticize the food, About blue
bird time, when he heard that Aunt
Jnlla was ready to come home, het
grandchildren being through with the
measles, he Insisted on going back to
get things reedy for her. I was wor
ked for fear he was going to be sick;
but Aunt Julia writes that he's invent
ing a new plow and a scarecrow with
a phonoi/rnph arrangement; so I guess
he'e all right again."—Youth's Com

ALLIES MUE GAINS
AGAINST NEW LINE
London, April 23.—Further progress
by the French In their encircling drive
against Laon and additional headway
on the part of the Brttlah In the "nut
cracker" offensive against I-ens were
the outstanding events of the most re
cent lighting in the west. The British
h»r » — «ν- <.« violent Teuton eonnter
Je Lena sector.
—ΤΙΙΪ "uerman war office statement
conceded no losses of terrain, but as
serted British and French onslaughts
were repulsed. On the west bank of
the Sulppes river, the Berlin repor!
says, "there were engagements which
terminated with heavy enemy (French)
losses." The statement foreshadowed
new terrific British assaults on the
Flanders and Artois fronts, and par
ticularly on the Lens area, where. It
was stated, the artillery activity 'in
creased at times to the most extreme
violence."
General Nivelle pushed on further
into the Teuton lines between the
Aisne and the Chemins des Dames, to
the north of Sancy and Jouy, the two
strategic points captured by th*> French
a few days ago.
The British In their new advance
agalnet Lens made prisoners and cap
tured machine guns. Of the British
attacks In this sector the German re
port says Sir Douglas Halg's men
were caught under the destructive Are
of the defense.
A large German "mosquito" flotilla
bobbed up suddenly off the big French
seaport and subjected It to a spirited
bombardment, hurling fully 100 shells
into the city and Its environs. "A num
ber of civilians were killed and twelve
persons were slightly wounded," says
the brief official statement
At the same time a squadron of Ger
man airplanes appeared over Dunkirk,
the secoiid port so often mentioned as
one of the kaiser's most coveted war
prizes, and covered it with a hall of
bombs. "Three persons were slightly
wounded," says the official report of
this raid, adding, "The material dam
age was Insignificant."
Dunkirk lies halfway between Oat
end afcd Calais, some twenty-four
miles to the east of the latter port. It
Is between Dunkirk and Calais on the
French side and Dover and Folkestone
on the other that the bulk of the Brit
ish transports to France are believed
to be plying.
Why the Cat Waa Worshiped.
The worshiping of the cat by the
Egyptians has been attributed to the
fact that where there were cats there
was no bubonic plague. The ancients
did not think quite far enough to real
lie that where there were cats the rats
were scarce and so went on worship
ing the cat, supposing that it was the
animal's supernatural power which
aaved them from the plague.
Growth of Mahogany.
The rate of growth of mahogany Is
shown In southern Nigeria, where the
site of a town destroyed Θ0 years ago
has been covered with a forest contain

wire found to be more than ten feet In
diameter.
