It is an ambitious scheme that Mayor I-rank Hague, ot Jersey City, has to turn the control of the slate over to the Hudson county rummies. His plan was announced at a meeting of Democrats from all over the state held in Newark j on Friday. Jdavor Hague's idea is simple enough. He wants Jim ■ Nugent 'merelv to hold down the “drys” in Essex so as to! have an even'break in that county whereupon Hudson will i I roll up a majority of 70,000 for the “wet” candidates on the L* Democratic ticket which will be sufficient to elect them. This is taking it for granted, of course, that at the primaries next fall the Democrats nominate only out and out wet l candidates on their ticket while the Republicans nominate [ “dry” candidates. Poor old Jim Nugent, he seems to be a failure as a “wet” leader. He makes an awful lot of noise and promises a great many things, but when the votes are counted in Essex the only candidate to fall victim to his wrath is one lone woman who had been the object of attack from several | other quarters besides Nugent and who, even with all the concentrated opposition, lost by only a couple of hundred vnt pa No wonder the booze interests are beginning to lose faith in Nugent’s leadership and are turning to Frank Hague, of Hudson. Nugent having done his best and failed so miser ably, is now asked merely to hold down the Essex “dry” vote so as to give Hudson a chance to turn the trick. Thus is Nugent relegated to second place. He is merely to carry on a barrage fire while the shock troops under Hague advance and snatch the victory. _ . According to Hague and Nugent the name Democrat in the coming campaign is to be the same as booze. The Demo cratic ticket is to be the booze ticket and the booze ticket is to be the Democratic ticket. You may call it by which ever name vou like. The rummies, of course, will prefer to refer to it as the “booze” ticket. The more respectable ele ment in the Democratic party, or what is left of the respect able element after Hague and Nugent get through with it, will prefer to refer to it as the Democratic ticket. It Mill make little difference. Democracy and booze M ill be synony mous. , , The rest of the 6tate accept the challenge. We do not be fc: irreve the people of New Jersey whether Republican or Demo M^tic, are ready to admit that Hudson is the M’hole state. It ^Hbains merelv for the Republican party to meet the issue WB,,ciy-nn pussy-footing like Mas done in 1919 when Bugbee was the candidate. \\ ilh a candidate like V\ illiam N. Runyon for governor, and a clean, straight-from-the-shoul der platform founded on the constitution ot the United States as it has been amended by the people, there can be no ques tion about the outcome. While the booze element in the Republican ranks might vote for the Ilague-Nugent booze candidate, thousands of respectable Democrats in all parts of the state—even in Hudson and Essex, tor there are decent .mes there, too—would flock over to the side of law and order and respectability. Do the people of New Jersey care to have a bunch of Hudson county rummies run the state? We think not. That will be the issue next fall if Hague and Nugent have their way. THE LEAGUE AND BALANCE OF POWER While we would not in the least discourage the good work that is being accomplished at Washington these days in the way of curtailing armament and making more secure [ the peace of the world, we cannot help but see in the plan that is now proposed to he adopted almost an cxect duplica tion of the plan outlined in the covenant of the League of t» Nations. . To the average citizen it makes little difference who I] pets the credit for bringing about a permanent understand f ! ing between nations as4ong as Ihe understanding is brought about. To the politicians at Washington, however, it seems : to make all the difference in the world. In fact, some o! them are determined that there will be no movement toward a reduction in armament and a permanent peace if Iheir par ticular parly does not get the ciedit tor it. The plan now proposed at Washington goes back to the old ‘-balance of power" method that has wrought such havoc in the world throughout the ages. It is a treaty between Ihe 1 l united States. Great Britain. France, Italy and Japan to car ry out certain agreements. But why should these five nations : set themselves up as the rulers of the world? They may think the little countries do not count. But these little nations are as jealous of their standing as the great nations are. Let us not forget that the great World War was started by a pistol i * shot down in the Balkans. If the-e live great nations can comuine to c<m\ um uu - tain agreements, there is nothing to prevent other nations also getting together, and thus we once more have the old j rival groups the one arming against tlie other. When we already have all I lie nations of the earth, on at least forty-one of them, working together in harmony, j | would it not be better to use that movement so well estab- j lished to further-the same object that the conference all Washington now proposes? But, that, of course, would be j adopting the plan as laid down by Woodrow Wilson and Re-! publican politicians, apparently, would rather see millions j of America’s youth fed out as cannon fodder than to adopt anything that is associated with the name of Woodrow Wit-1 1 sou. Therefore, the plan as i. u I tin e. 1 at I lie Washington con ference is to be approved. It is to he hoped, however, that as the bitterness and hatred dies out the advantages of all getting together in the League of Nations will be adopted.

ROUNDING UP THE VETERANS IN U. S. Daily letter by Frederic #1. Haskin - - --- ■■ in—i , _3«--=aBawgaa^=r: WASHINGTON, Dec. 9— A vete ran of the World War who Is peti tioning the government to give him a new glass eye, because the first one they gave him was stolen while he was In swimming, and another man who had most of his face blown away while in the service, but does rot ask compensation be cause he does not consider himself a hero, are a couple of the curiosi ties revealed by the roundup of VVcrld War veterans which has just been conducted by the Veterans' Bureau here. Like many other varieties of gov ernment officials working in the Held, the representatives of the bu reau i und ihomselves frequently liandii tpped by the fact that peo ple believed ■they were revenue of ficers looking for stills. The bu reau sent its representatives into all parts of the country .resolved to find every veteran of the war who Imd a claim for compensation and give him his due. Over 96,000 disabled ex-service men have been interviewed since August. Evidence in the cases of 56.334 of these veterans indicated that claims should be filed and gi verninent representatives assisted these claimants to compile and pre. part the necessary evidence. These thousands of claims have been speedily acted upon for out of these 56.334 claims tiled only 4.393 ire pending, the remainder having been adjudicated and notices of set tlement forwarded to the claimants. As a result of this unique program if taking official Washington to the veteran, unusual cases from all parts of the country many of which the government is meeting with dif flf ulty are coming to light of day for the first time. An I'natttwhed Lighter There is, for example, ihe case of C. H. Pearl, a Grand Rapids. Mich igan veteran who lost his left hand and arm as a result of a shrapnel wound incurred in the trenches. Pearl is apparently "a soldier with out a country.” it appears that this unproven vet eran enlisted in the American Am bulance Servh e of the French Army in 1917. After serving his enlist ment he applied for transfer to the American Expeditionary Forces but, on advice of the attache he ,re-en tered the French service for three months. Six months later he was wounded and sent to a hospital. Four weeks afterward his or ganization was transferred to the United States Army, but Pearl was not ' worn into tliy United States service because he was in the hos pital and was overlooked. Conse quent!; . when released he was a free agent and not a member of any army. The soldier obtained a post tion with the Quartermaster's De partment, but his condition became worse and he reentered the hospital Upon his release he worked in France and last July came back to America. When the Michigan clean up squad arrived in Grand Rapids to handle local claims for compensa tion, Pearl applied to it for an award duo to his injuries, hut he was unable to show by oflicial rec ords that he had served the United States during the war. Neither! could he prove that he was actually in the service of any country when | he was released from a French hos. t pital. Nevertheless, Pearl is getting a square deal regardless of his ina-. bility to prove that he was ever in service. His case is deemed to be ne of those in which certain tech nicalities must be temporarily re moved in favor of simple justice. From Michigan also comes an | unique demand of another veteran j for a new glass eye to be purchased j by the goVernment. The former soldier lost his eye in service and among other compensations was awarded a glass eye. A few months ago his glass eye was stolen to gether with his clothes while he was in swimming. He asked the government for a new one immedi ately, but the claim was disallowed. Had the eye been broken, the ruling read, it would have been re-1 placed but inasmuch as it was stolen the government could assume no! responsibility in the matter. The; veteran asked the clean-up squad to make an effort to obtain a re- j ; versal of the decision, w hich is now [ ; being done. Veteran Ignorant of Rights There are many instances of vet erans having been found and com pensated by clean-up squads, who did not know that they were enti tled to government aid. At Stock-^ ton. California, a battle scarred ex service man desiring compensation tame before the clean-up squad. lie said he had heart trouble. So slight was his heart ailment, however, that the examining physician found that it would not entitle him to compensation. But to his great surprise he discovered that the vet had a scar about 10 inches long and 2 inches wide on his hip where a muscle had been shot off. His chief complaint seemed to be that he had heart trouble but he casually mentioned the fact that ha nad this ugly shrapnel wound in the hip and besides a bullet wound in one arm. He almost forgot to mention the latter disability, the doctor said. It was also found that he had not fully recovered from a sort of pa ralysis of the throat, arms and legs. The vet said that he had always teen too busy to file a claim foi compensation before, but that while working in the mountains he saw £ pester announcing that the clean up squad was coming to Stocktoi so he decideei to go there for at interview. He was rated as 50 pel cent disabled and therefore entl tied to ?40 a month compensation When the clean-up squad sat li Hartford, Connecticut, a veterai came before it. He showed the doc tors of the squad a wound in his lef side that made them stand aghast The head of the clean-up squad wai culled into the room and he, too admitted that in his crowded expe ricnce in the department with dlsa bled ex-service men, he find neve seen such a ghastly wound. Thi soldier had not received a penny o allowance since his discharge oVe two years ago. An explosive bullet had opene< a wound across his left side, Jus above his hip .over 14 inches lonf and had forced the hip out so tha the cavity was frqm 4 to 6 inchei deep. If had not yet fully healec and the veteran applied for com pensation inasmuch as he was una tie to work. Humorous incidents come to ligh in connection with this work as thi unemployment situation leads somi of the ex-service men to strait a point in order to obtain compen sation. In Knoxville Tennessee. £ young sian presented himself, tolc of his affliction, which he was in formed was not compensable. Thi young man was taken aback by thii prompt dismissal of his argumen and paused a moment. Suddenl; his hand began to tremble whib resting on his knee as he said, " am also very nervous.” In some parts of the hill countr; of Tennessee and West Virginia thi government representatives with tb clean-up squad were mistaken fo "ltevenooers.” in other remote dis trlcts they were mistaken for draf officials who the less literate por tion of tlie population believed wer searching for draft evaders. On agent of the Veterans' Bureau win had preceded the squads for th purpose of making the advance ar rangements was picked up by i group of men in an automobi! who offered to take him to his desti nation. He accepted the offer am got in the car but lie had to res his heels on several demijohns o "corn likker." The trip was in terrupted in several places whil deliveries were being made. in Buchanan, Virginia, a mai who had his face almost blow away by a gasoline explosion ii France, told the clean-up officer that he did not know that he wa entitled 10 compensation becaus "he wasn’t any hero soldier an didn’t get shot, but just got blet 1 up trying to put a fire out in camp YOUR CHANCE • BY DR. W. E. BARTOX I read an item to the effect that in 1836 a clerk in the patent office resigned because he believed that there would not much longer be use for the patent office. 1 wrote to the commissioner ol patents and asked him whether the story was true. He replied that It was Impossible to give a categorical answer, because a lire in the patent office destroyed most of the correspondence of thal period, but he said that there wai such a tradition of long standing current In the patent office. This young man said, according tc the story, that he had examined carefully the range of inventions at was his official duty and that everj thejr appeared to have reached th« limit of inventive genius. He had opportunity to accept a permsnen' position, and therefore he withdrew from the patent office. That young man had never eecr a room lighted with electricity noi with gas, nor even with kerosene Andrew Jackson was finishing hi) second term and Martin Van Bum was soon to ride up Pennsylvnnlf avenue in a coach in all essentia particulars of construction similnr t( the chariot in which Pharoah led hli forces Into the Red Sea. This young man may possibly have seen a railway train but it was of a very primitive sort. He had never seen a telegraph and had never lighted a tire with a match. He never knew of the possibility of using steam in any large wuy in manufac ture. Except for a limited use of. water wheels and windmills and the sails of ships, he knew nothing about any use of power on the part of man other than that which rosided in his own arms or was made possible by his use of domestic animals and the explosion of a small charge of black powder. Ho never dreamed of the use of electric light or of the camera or of X-rays or of moving pictures oi of the airplane. The distinctive Inventions of modern times were un known to him. There never has been an age In which despondent soils were not af firming that the times of opportu i nity were gone. And some of the ages when the wall was loudest and . the reasons assigned were most co gent. were on the very threshold of i new and startling discoveries. Thit i is such an age. Learn One New Thing Every Day BULLETINS BY THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY CHINA’S FOREIGN PATCHES. Several regions, once a part of China proper, which have been ceded or leased to foreign governments, form the subject of a bulletin from the Washington, 0. C„ headquarters of the National Geographic Society. These regions, which have actually been transferred, either by lease or cession, are not to he confused with the so-called "spheres of influence,” which are more or less indefinite and many of which are not recog nized by the Chinese. “What or,ce threatened to be the great international ‘sport’ of annex ing parts of China began with the arrival of the first Europeans in the Far East,” says the bulletin. "Those who blazed the trail around Africa, across the stormy Indian Ocean, and up the east coast of Asia to rich Cathay were the Portuguese. For half a century they came and went in their trading ships, but by 1577 . they felt the need of a station to fa , cilitate their commerce, and settled at Macao on the southern coast of ; China. A region of about four , square miles was set aside for them partly as a reward tor assistance in 1 breaking up piracy in the nearby waters, and has been claimed by Portugal ever since Formal trans fer of this tiny fragment of China 1 was made by the Chinese govern 1 racni in 1887, and since then has ’ been without question Portuguese • territory. - Lull Before Annexation Storm "More than two and a half cen ’ turies passed after the founding of Macao before China was again called in the name of commerce to give away more of her territory. By that ! time all the commercial nations of ; Europe, and tha I'nited States as well were engaged in the remunera tive China trade. Friction arose in 1 the early part of the nineteenth cen ■ tury between British traders and the ' Chinese, and after a war in which Great Britain was Uctorious, China, i as a part of her indemnity, in 1842 gave Great Britain the island of Hong Kong, a few miles from Ma > non rrV>ic iclurw! with art u rpfl nf 3 2 square miles and one of the best harbors in the world was actually ceded and became a part of the Brit ish empire. In 1860 Great Britain leased three square miles of terri tory on the mainland opposite Hong Kong and shortly afterward this too was ceded. ‘‘What may be called China's per iod of ‘intensive land losses' extend ed from 1805 to 1900, with five na tions participating At the conclu sion of the Japanese-Chinese War in 1895, Japan not on'y obtained Koreu, over which China claimed a protec torate. but also the large island of r Formosa with an aiea of nearly 14, , 000 square miles, off the central , Chinese cozst.

Bay on the coast of Shantung in t 1896, but China refused her offer. s In November, 1897, Germany seized the bay ostensibly because two Ger [ man missionary had been killed In t Shantung. In December the Russian f Asiatic fleet steamed into Port Ar . thur, 200 miles north of Kiaochow, j and announcement was made that it would winter there In March, 1898, , Germany obtained a 99 year lease of i approximately 100 square miles on , the shores of the bay which she had j seized: and the same month Russia , obtained a 25 year lease to Port Ar , thur and a part of the Liaotung pen j insula, with the right to extend the t lease. "Only a few weeks after the lease had been granted to Germany and Russia, Great Britain obtained a lease on the shores and Bay of Wei hai-wei, almost equidistant between Port Arthur and Klaochow. Thii British lease was not for a definite number of years but provided that it was to run for the period during which Russia should hold Port Ar thur. Later in April, France en tered the competition and took a 9D year lease on thq. Bay of Kwang Chow and approximately 230 square miles of territory on the mainland Franco Enters Field "In June Great Britain increased her holdings at Hong Kong by leas ing for 99 years, 358 square miles ol additional territory on the main land and additional islands aggregat ing 20 square miles in area, fn No vember, 1399, France added to hei lease the Kwang Chow a group ol islands dominating the bay.

BISHOP I wonder if there is any adjective thar will adequately describe those who know that the only sure preven tive of smallpox is vaccination and yet refuse to make use of it. They are more than foolish, they are crim inal. For by laying themselves open to this dread disease they ate mak ; ing it just so much easier for a plague to get a foothold. Until the slmp'.e preventive, vac cine, was hit on. thousands and thousands died every year from this Ioathesome disease. Vaccination made smallpox almost obsolete. Carelessness and the rarity of the disease is bringing it back. This beeauco people put off getting vaccinated or a'e altogether in different Vaccination is not dangerous. Over 3,000.000 oersona were vaccinated in the la3t two years in this country without a single death. The method consist in introducing vaccine virus Into the skin causing what is known as vaccina. A small j pimple or aore appears in three or four days tli» skin around it becomes ! red. slightly swollen and tender. In | 10 or 12 day a scab forms and soon I drops off. There may be a slight headach“ or 'eve*. In some casea. vaccination is not succ'ssful iru lirst time, in which case there is ro sore and the treaj meut should be repeated. Since vaccination is the only sur preventive of smallpox, it is essen tial that one should be vaccinate early in life. A baby should be vac ciliated during its first year an again at the age of ten. After tw successful vaccinations, immunit usually lasls a life time. Howevei if one is exposed to smallpox and ha not had the disease, he should b vaccinated at once unless he has un dergone the treatment within th past five years. Vaccination is a form of health in surance that pays many thousand of d vidends in preventiveness. , ISO'S SAFE AND SANE for Coughs & Colds * THis syrup it different from all others I_Quick telief No op itei 55c everywhere JERSEY TIRE CO.
