MONDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1922 OUR SLOGAN: The Evening Journal—the First of the First State. AMENDS TO COMMODORE JACOB JONES' MEMORY HROUGH inadvertanoe, referenoe to Commodore Jaoob Jones, one of Delaware's most distinguished naval heroes, was omitted from The Evening Journal's Navy Day editorial, amends for that omission. Students of Delaware history will reoall that on Oo tober IS. 1812, the sloop-of-war Wasp sailed from the Delaware for a cruise In West Indian waters. Her com plement of men consisted of about 186. She njounted sixteen thirty-two-pound carronadee and two long twelves. In addition, she usually oarrrled two small brass cannon In her tops. Captain Jacob Jones was her commander. He was a brave officer and a native of Delaware, his birthplace being near Smyrna. He had been graduated In medi cine, but abandoned the profession and became clerk of the Supreme Court He entered the navy a« a mid shipman on April 10. 1799, and was promoted to a lieu tenancy on February 22, 1801. In 1808 he was an of ficer of the frigate Philadelphia when she was cap tured In the harbor of Tripoli and for eighteen» months was a prisoner. When the Wasp was oft the West Indies on October IS, a fleet of British armed merchantmen, convoyed by the British sloop-of-war Frolio vas sighted. Th» Frollo mounted sixteen thirty-two-pound carronadee. two long six-pounders and two twelve-pound carronades on her forecastle. She had a crew of 108 men and was com manded by Captain Whlngate.s. Within a short time the Wasp and the Frolic were within range and one of the fiercest naval fights of the War of 1812 was In progress. The main-topmast of the Wasp was shot away five minutes after the action T It la with pleasure that we make board and fore-topsail braces and lodged there. In con sequence, the head-yards of the American sloop were unmanageable during the remainder of the conflict. Not long thereafter, her gaff and main-topgallant mast were shot away. They fell with a crash to the deck. In fact, at the end of twenty minutes from the opening of tho engagement, every brace and mast of the Wasp's rigging was disabled. Her forlorn condition did not, however, dismay her intrepid Delaware commander. He saw that the Frollo was damaged seriously In the hull. Slowly the two sloops approached each other until finally the bend, of the Wasp were against tfye bows of the Frolic. Then the bowsprit of the Frolic pa.-sed In over the quarter-deck of the Wasp, forced her around and enabled her to sond a terrific broadside Into the Britisher. i\; The havoc was dreadful. The Americana, led by Lieutenants Biddle and Rodgers, boarded the Frolic, but there was no opposition to their advance. The last broadside had killed or wounded most of the Britons and taken the fight out of the few who survived. The English officers throw their swords to the deck as a sign of surrender and Lieutenant Biddle struck the colors of the Frolic with his own hand, none of the enemy being able to do so. All of her officers were wounded and most of her crew were wounded severely or killed. Her total loss in killed and wounded placed at ninety. Of the Wasp's company, five killed and a like number wounded. was « • i Captain Jones directed Lieutenant Biddle to take the Frolic to Charleston. Just then the British shlp-of war Poictlers, mounting seventy guns and commanded by Captain John Poo Beresford, hove In sight. She captured the Wasp and the Frolic^ They were taken to Bermuda, where the American prisoner, were ex changed and sent home. "The victory of the Wasp and the Frolic occasioned much rejoicing in the United States," a historian says. 'The press teemed with laudations of Captain Jones and his gallant companions, and a stirring song, com memorative of the event, was soon upon the lips of singefs at public gatherings, in bar-rooms, workshops and even by ragged urchin«.'' Upon his return to the United States, Captain Jones was received with demonstrations of gratitude and ad miration. According to custom, a court of Inquiry was held on his conduct In giving up the Wasp and her prize. The court found, "That the conduct of the offi cers and crew of the Wasp was eminently distinguished by' firmness and gallantry in making every preparation and exertion of which their situation would admit." • Captain Jones was feted In tho cities. The Delaware Legislature voted him thanks and expressed pride that he was a native of Delaware. It also presented to him New York's Common Council voted him a sword and the freedom of the city. On motion of James A. Bayaod, th« Congress of the United States appropriated $ 25,000 as compensation to Captain Jones and his companions for loss of prize money due to the recapture of the Frolic. Congress also voted a gold medal to Captalh Jones and a silver medal to each of his office«». Con gress felt, however, that what It had done was no. enough. It put Jones in command of the frigate Mace donlan, recently captured from the British and added to the American navy. That ship became par/ of De catur's squadron. At -the close of the war Commodore Jones commanded the Mediterranean and the Pacific a handsome sword and a piece of silver plate. squadrons. For several years he was a member of the Navy Board and governor of the Naval Asylum in Philadelphia. It was In that city on August 3. 1850 that this distinguished Delawarean died, leaving a rec ord for service that commanded the re miration of all who knew 1L and ad A I SOMETHING DELAWARE VOTERS SHOULD RE MEMBER HE national debt now is about 1210 for every man, woman and child In America, Including Delaware. It Is nearly twice as biff as all the money Invested the country's telephone, telegraph, electric railway and electric power and lighting systems combined. The national debt Is more than six times as much as all the money Invested In the iron and steel works, roll ing mills and blast furnaces. •'Economy," Instead of "wet or dry?" should he the slogan to determine who goes to Congress, and Dela voters should remember that Senator duPont and T ware Representative Layton, the Republican candidates, are committed definitely to a policy of doing everything In their power to reduce the national debt, which Is largely of Democratic creation. "ALL IN THE MIND" 'EAT your Wilmington house for nothing by the . Sing Sing method. This famous prison decided to coal by shutting off the heat In daytime. A mighty how! went up from the inmates. 'Too cold to work." they complained. One of the prison engineers didn't agree, firing up, he sat down and began pounding with a ham ,mer and chisel on the steampipes. The noise, when it reached the convicts, sounded like the knocking that takes place In pipes when steam 1. turned on. •That's better!" they approved. "Gosh, the heat feel« good." A few of the more Imaginative convict» are reported to have begun perspiring. All this time of couree, the temperature had not changed, and the furnaces wore cold. Around Sing Sing they're kidding now about "psycho logical heat." A good name for 1L You may have ob that suddenly to become very H conserve Instead of cold when you notice that the thermometer Is low, though prior to looking at the mercury the room had not etruck you as unoomfortably cool. An historic case of the power of Imagination on the body: In an English surgical college, a patient was given Just enough anesthetic to make him unable to speak or move, without being insensible. A bandage was over his eyea Surgeons ran a sharp lolele along the skin near his heart, then exclaimed that they had cut an artery. Warm water was allowed to triokle down his side. The patient died on the operating table, in tho belief that he was bleeding to death. Imagination killed him. The London surgical case and the "psychological heat" at Sing Sing suggest that a good many of our aches, pains and troubles are largely Imaginary, maybe entirely so. The imagination has hypnotic powers. It can hypnotize well people Into believing that they are ill. and sometimes can change the sickly Into a con dition of health. • As the old saying goes, life Is what we make it. and happiness is largely In the mind. When the world and its people look sour and uninviting, the trouble usuallly Is In ou? own brains—our mental viewpoint. In the long run, we usually get what we expect—ea peclally trouble and misfortune. THREE KEY EMOTIONS USSELL EVERETT SMITH was kidnapped by gypsies In April, 1919, when he was four years old. Many Delawareans will recall the stories In the newspapers at that time. Now he Is returned to his mother in La Grange, Me., thanks to Information furnished by a wandering peddler. The reunion brlnns great rejoicing, shouts, cheers, R celebrations, tears, excitement. Wild explosions of rage among the neighbors, when the Smith boy tells of the cruelty he experienced. All this has the makings of a heart-throb book. It Is a perfect typo of emotional new». From emotional news you turn to another type of happenings In this life—Intellectual new» brought to It» highest degree In sclentlflo research. * Dr. Aston, celebrated British scientist, discusses hie conviction that man Is made entirely of electricity. This la the Rutherford doctrine, that the atoms of matter are merely different combinations of electricity. Dr. Aston predicts a day when man will unlock the gigantic power stored In the atom, make it do his work. How small is an atom? Aston says: "If a tiny hole were made In the side of a fluctuated electrlo light bulb, so that the molecules of air could pass In at a rate of l.OOOfOOO a second. It would take 100,000,000 years be fore the bulb was full, and there are two atoms In each molecule of air." From emotional and Intellectual news you turn to something harder to define. A good-name for It would be ''controtlerslal happenings." A sample: Prohibition has cost America a loss of $1,702.000,000 slnco 1919, In revenue that might have been derived from the sale of liquor If the saloons had been left wide open. Tho estimate Is made in the Wall Street Journal. Controversial? Decidedly. Wets will point to what Dry» will point to what the government has lost. drinkers have saved. Emotions. Intellect and controversy—these are the three great forces that animate men and women, whether In barbarism or civilization. Usually they work In combinations. • Men coma and go, from the du*t back to the dust, but the three forces seem perpetual, are futile?

Ho said at the association's dinner Thursday: "This great Dation (Russia) you have helped set free, want you to treat her as a free nation. I do not sympathize with, but strongly condemn, the communistic economy of Rus sia, but I am glad to say that the Russian already learned the lesson thot communism Is Impossible. It Is already changing and beginning to accept principles which you support. government has I hope you will ex press your sympathy for Russia In a tangible manner." The utter breakdown of commun ism on the economic side forced thé Soviet dictatorship to modify of the restrictions It had put on In dividual ownership and production. This reversal was grudging and described as a temporary expedient. Lenine lacked the power to despoil the peasants of their lands and crops. They were too many for him. But in any field in which he ha» had Bluenose s Victory (From the New York Herald.) Out of the four raoes sailed be tween the Gloucester and Nova Interno Trophy, the Henry Ford won two and the Blue noee the same number. But as the committee In charge of the aeries declared the first race, on October 21, no contest, the Bluenose took the trophy. The decision Is prob ably as unsatisfactory to Captain Augus Walters and his crew as It must be to Captain Morrissey and his men on the challenger. In the lighter airs of October 21, and October 23, the Henry Ford proved to be the faster craft, but when It came to turning to wind ward on October 25 and October 26, the Nova Scotia schooner was the better boat, and this In spite of the fact that the final race proved to be a disappointment as a fair contest, through the carrying away of the topmast of the Henry Ford, between the third and fourth marks of the course. The two rival skippers were of one mind about the opening race—that it was fairly won by the Gloucester schooner, and this In spite of the actions of the official committee Scotia schooners for the tional Fishermen's The Crisis in Italy (From the Washington Post.) The situation created In Italy by the resignation of the Facta Cabinet Inspires a considerable amount of anxiety, as It leaves a number of questions of great International In lathe Treaty of Rapallo and the sup plementary agreement to It. the con vention of Santa Margherita dl Li gurla, entered Into some time ago the Italian Government and the Gov ernment of the IClngdom of the Serbs, Croat» and Slovenes. This Treaty and convention were Intend ed to bring about a settlement of the situation In the Adriatic. By the Treaty of Rapallo It was agreed that the dispute between Italy and Jugoslavia for the possession of Flume would be settled by a com-. promise, the disputed territory being erected Into an Independent ifree state to which Jugoslavs and Italians should have access on equal terms. The port of Baros, adjoining Flume, being entirely Inhabited by Jugo-! Slavs, was to become part of the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. Italy at the same time abandoned all claim to Dalmatian territory wlth the exception of the town of Zara and two falnly Important Is lands off the coast, questions arose regarding the moth-j od of evacuation of the various territories and the establish lng of Italian and Jugoslav schools In them. These points were regu lated by a special agreement known as the Convention of Santa Mar gherlta dl Liguria, from the Italian town In which It was negotiated and Signed. This Convention, being merely Interpretative and explana tory of the Treaty of Rapallo (which had In the meantime been laid be fore Jhe Italian Parliament and rati fled) had no need of any ratification by the legislature. This point of view was. however, combated by the fasclstl faction In Italy, which insisted that the Con vention of Santa Margherita should also be submitted to the Parliament. It was an open secret that the Fas cistl who had opposed the treaty of some Later Republican Confidence (From the Wilmington Morning News). With the approach of the closing days of the campaign the Republi cans are confident, and they believe that Delaware will return a satisfac tory majority for tho entire Ropub catj ticket, dlcate a Democratto victory or any serious departure from normal. One reason for the confidence of the Republicans la based on the fact that a careful estimate of the regis tration shows that the Republicans have a majority of between six and seven thousand on the face of the figures for tjio entire State. It may be said that such an esti mate Is not entirely accurate, and this Is true, but If the Republicans are liable to lose from their figures of those registered the Democrats on the other hand are also liable to lose because some Democrats will vote tho Republican ticket. It Is rather certain that a considerable number of Democrats and Independ ents will support candidates. The Republicans In the past have always got some of this support. There Is nothing to ln the Republican to why there No reasonable arguments have been advanced the power to confiscate and natlonal i*e he has not compromised or re canted. He Is not willing to promise to pay foreign debts unless he Is paid In advance for doing so. He Is not ready to restore the property of non Russ'an nationals, except on onerous conditions. He Is content to sell con cessions to foreign speculators. But they have no assurance that he will live up to his bargain. Did the Genoa conference and the Hague conference show (that Soviet Russia had been genuinely converted to recognition of the va lidity of international obligations or the Inviolability of private property? They did not. closed that Moscow was willing to drive a hard bargain with state« to which It owed debts and Individuals to whom it h^d robbed. It Is a travesty on facts to say that Lenine Is beginning to accept principles which the American peo ple support. * Ho lives In a world of his own, utterly different from ours politically and economically. We do not want to go over to him or t< let him and his come over to us. We have relieved Innocent victims whom his policies were starving. For his absolutist and repudlatlonlst government we have nothing but aversion and contempt. They merely dls both at the start of the contest and toward he finish, when It steamed home and left the two schooners to end the race without noting either the finish or the time. On top of this attitude of the committee the official measurer bungled his figures so badly that after causing the Henry Ford's sail plan to be reduced once It was found necessary to have an other cut made from the mailsall to make the Gloucester schooner's spread of sail come within the proper limita It Is doubtful If Mr. Dennis, the donor of the trophy, ever Intended that such an atmosphere of yacht raoing refinements should be brought Into these wholesome contests. Un questionably the actions of the com mittee have brough an unpleasant feeling Into these races which it may take more than a year to wipe out. . ■everybody will be disappointed at,j, the mismanagement of the trophy series oft Capo Ann. Good fishing schooners and good men aboard them have been the victims of the No matter what the outcome of the promised match race between the Mayflower and the Bluenose. wrong kind of official management.

Bonar Law has been sagacious enough to turn these Blighting epi grams to his own advantage. He ad mits that he Is commonplace and says that It Is his fixed purpose to give the country a commonplace and negative administration, cated to his Glasgow constituency on Thursday night that what Great Britain tranquility—a long breathing spell In which to recover from the turbu lent and tumultuous Georgian re gime. This was a pertinent retort. Bonar Law has a good platform as well ns a good bedside manner. He has al ready announced plans for abolish ing the famous Lloyd George "secre tarlat," which took the burdens of the empire and the whole world upon Its shoulders; for restoring the authority and prestige of the head of the Foreign Office; for cutting out spectacular lnter-Allled conferences of prime ministers and getting back to normalcy In the conduct of for eign affairs.
