WORLD SWEPT
BY CONFLICTS
DURING 1920
Hailed as ‘Peace Year,' De
spite Many Eitter
Struggle^.
U. S. HAS LARGE ARMY
NEW YORK, Jan. 3.—The World
hailed 1820 as 'peace, year.” bat toe fa
miliar sound of battle rolled unceasinrly
through many parts of Europe and Asia.
All of the bis: powers with the notable
exception of the United States and Rus
sia had signed treaties or joined the
league of Nations, but the whole year
wrs marked by -wars, revolutions and at
tempted military coups. Fighting war
tontinnous In Russia end Turkey. Civil
war broke out In China. Germany had
a narrow escape from civil war fhen a
litnall clique of German militarists under
Von Kapp attempted to seise the Berlin
Government on March 13. Violent str.fi
hag raged and continues to rage in Ire
land. The year ends with the virtual
collapse of the Utopian movement for
universal disarmament. The United States
is maintaining nearly a quarter of a mil
lion man under arms and is executing n
naval program that will make her the |
lirst soa power in the world uniesn-Gsvift
Britain enlarges her program. _A*d Ja
pan has served notice upoq. the League
cf Nations that she will dot disarm so
long as the United States continues to
Increase her land and sea forces.
The biff goat war of 1020 was fought
between sc Met Russia and Poland. En
raged oi the territorial encroachments of
-Poland and possibly seeing an oppor
tunity to push Bolshevism westward the
Soviets massed a great army against the
Poles. Fighting broke out in March and
soon a terrific struggle was raging over
ff battlefront approximately 500 miles
long. The Poles were successful in the
initial stage of the lighting, but the Rus- l
slams rallied, smashed the Polish front
and tgere on the point of taking Warsaw
when, with French and British help, the ;
Poles beat off the invaders. After six
months of violent fighting peace negoti
ations were opened at Minsk, hut were
later transferred to Riga, where they are
still in' progress.
RUSSIAN BUDS
WIN SUCCESS.
Except for the Polish war, 1820 was
a successful military year for Red Rus
sia. Three extensive campaigns were
conducted against the soviet with allied
assistance, but all collapsed. They were
led by Admiral Kolthcak, who was exe- j
euted In Siberia, following his defeat by
General Denekln, who fled to England
after his army was defeated and scat- !
ter ad in South Russia, and by Gen. Baron
W ran gel, who fled to Turkey after his
army was crushed In Crimea.
During 1020 Red Russia entered into
an alliance with the Turkish Nationalists
under Mustapha Kemal Pasha, and to
gether they smothered Armenia into i
submission. The present state of Ar- |
menia, about as bfg in extent as an
American county, lies In the Caucasus
Mountains, outside of the old Ottoman
Empire.
The military ambitions of the soviet
were reaching Into Persia, even while
Red armies were contending against the
Poles and General Wrangel, but the
British put an army into Persia and
compelled the Russians to withdraw. Red
tioops wore landed at Enzeli, Persi-i,
from thirteen transports In May. and
threatened to march upon Teheran and
convert Persia Into a soviet republic.
Th© British army which drove out the
Russians Is still maintained in Persia
as a bulwark for the protection of- India.
TURKISH EMPIRE
IS KITTLE GROUND,
The thunder of battle" bas roared al
most without pause throughout the old
Turkish Empire, with four allied armies
arrayed against the Arabs and the Tur
lsh Nationalists. Although little news
has reached the outside world from Meso
potamia, that obscure quarter of the!
world has for months been the theater
of a violent struggle between a British
army of nearly 190.090 men and strong
forces of Turks aud Arabs.. In the in- j
terior of Anatolia the brunt of the fight- '
ing on the allied side fell upon the Greek
army, which was sent to crush the Na
tionalists. On the Marmora littoral tho
British and Turks were at grips, but the
fire from British warships compelled the
Turks to retire to the hinterland. In
Syria the French went to war against the
Arab* because the Arabs refused to nc- j
cept the French mandate. Only u brief
campaign was necessary to quell Arab
resistance. .But little fighting fell to j
the lot of the Italian forces of occupa
tion In Turkey.
Only the lack of transport and the
embroilments In western and southern
Russia prevented Siberia from becoming
a great battle field during 1020. The Jap
anese occupied vast stretches of Siberian
territory in defiance to the soviet, mean
while giving assistance to the anti-Bol
shevist army of General Semenoff. The 4
Reds crushed Semenoff’s army but were
not strong enough to go to war against
the Japanese.
The only warfare In Continental Europe :
Recurred in western Germany where :
Communists were engaged with the gov
ernment forrei. After a brief campaign
the Communists were defeated and dis
armed.
The Balkans, formerly known ns “the
cockpit of Europe," failed to run true to
form in 1920. It furnished only a little
fighting. This occurred in the mountains
of Albania where Montenegrin insurgents
and Albanians united against the Ser
bians.
D’ANNUNZIO CONTINUES
WARLIKE SEIZURES.
Flume was a sore spot all year and
was filled with the potentialities of war
between Italy and Jugo Slavla. In de- j
fiance to the Rome government Gabriel \
d'Annunzio's leglonalres occupied a num- !
ber of Islands which were claimed by j
Jngo Slavla. Finally the treaty of Ra- j
paHo was negotiated, but d’Annunzlo re
fused to recognize It and continued his
warlike seizures. An Italian army and
fleet were sent to Flume to blockade the
port. D’Annunzio retaliated with a “de- \
claration of war.” This war declaration, j
however, was never put into effect. Fight
ing was confined to skirmishing between
d’Annunzio’s troops and Jugo Slav bor- j
der guards.
Rebellion and potential rebellion slm- j
mered all year long in three-quarters of |
the British Empire—lreland, India and
Egypt. Virtual war has been raging in j
Ireland for several months. In Egypt I
and India huge British armies have j
maintained order except for sporadic out
breaks.
-v. Terrific fighting marked China’s civil
war In the extreme northeastern corner
of the country. The militarist-monarch- •
Ist forces attempted to gain control of
the Pekin government, but the civil
strife died down an quickly as it had
flared np.
Keen racial animosities were aroused
in southeastern Europe by the new fron- j
tiers drawn since the peace treaty. Im
partial observers declare that disputes
in that quarter threaten new wars.
Czecho-Slovakia, Jngo Slavia and Kon
manla entered Into an alliance to opposs
Bulgaria. Hungary, aroused over alot- ,
-nents of territory to Czecho-Slovakia
and Roumanla, is threatening reprisals.
The Balkan interests of Jugo Slavla ana
Greece clash and the antagonism be
tween the two countries was Intensified
by the overturn of Venizelos, Jugo Sla
vin'* friend In Greece.
On the American continent there was
owe revolution in 1320. Thla was the

MAYOR CALLS FOR
UTILITY SLICES
Evansville Chief Points to De
creasing Costs.
Special to the Times.
EVANSVILLE, Ind., Jan. B.—Mayor
Benjamin Bosse will demand lowering of
the public utility rates In Evansville In
his annual message to the city council to
be made tonight. ,
In view of decreasing costs of opera
tion, the mayor will take the position that
gas and electric rates and street car fares
should be brought down.
Bosse's message comes In the face of
fights by the street car company and the
gas company before the Indiana public
service commission for higher rates.
A prepared copy of the message today
showed that Bosse will call on the coun
cil to assert Its rights under the street
<*ar company’s franchise and reduce the
fares from 6 cents allowed by the public
service commission to the old rates
allowed by franchise—five cents and six
tickets for a quarter. Bosse also will de
mand that the gas company drop Its sur
charge and reduce lta ratea.

GREAT BRITAIN,
FRANCE TO KEEP
MEN AT ATHENS
Despite Objection to Constan
tine’s Return, Representa
tives Stay on Job.
GREECE NEEDS FUNDS
WASHINGTON, Jan. 3.— Despite their
protest against the return of King Con
stantine to the throne of Greece, Great
Britain and France have decided to per
mit their representatives to remain In
Athens, at least for ttie time being,
according to information reaching the
Stale Department today.
In the absence of any intimation that
France and Great Britain have receded
from their antagonistic attitude, officials
here inclined to the belief that tho
French nnd British ministers were be
ing kept In Athena as observers.
This Government will not be a party
to any attempt to influence the internal
affairs of Greece, it was stated today
President Wilson takes the view that
since a majority of tile Greek people
voted for the return of Constantine they
are entitled to have him. There will
probably be no question as to recogni
tion. there having been no break in
diplomatic relations.
Edward Capps, the American iniulstet
to Greece, is now at Athens, and is re
porting to the State Department almost
dally. His reports are said to indicate
that a serious financial situation exists
today In Greece and that Constantine's
government faces bankruptcy unless It
can engineer large loans abroad.
Under the wartime powers this Gov
ernment has authority to make loans to
Greece. Considerable sums were lent
to ber during hostilities, but she never
received the full authorized quota.
Operations of the Greek army in Asia
Minor are reported to be greatly handi
capped by lack of fund*, and there is
some reason to belloye Bolshevists may
gain a foothold there if immediate steps
ere not taken to relieve the situation, j
REDS STRENGTHEN
CONSULAR FORCE
M. Litvinoff Named as Envoy j
to Esthonia.
MOSCOW, Jan. 1 (by wireless to Ber- j
Iln), Jan. 3.—The soviet government has j
begun to reorganise and strengthen its
diplomatic service, according to Indica
tions here today. M. Litvinoff. who for
merly headed the Russian delegation that
conferred with the British, has been
named Russian envoy to Esthonia, a very
Important post.
Kevsl, In Esthonia, remains the princi
pal Russian door to the outside world.
Most Important political and financial
matters are handled, at Reval by repre
sentatives of ail the European powers.
The appointment of M. Litvinoff to the
Estnonia post makes It clear that the
soviet government plans to have some
one outside of Russia for dealings with
tho representatives of other nations who ’
is not only intimately acquainted with I
conditions in Russia, but is familiar with
foreign governments as well.
It will fail to M. Litvinoff to conduct j
future financial and commercial negotia- j
tions with non-Russlau groups at Revai. j
I’eace treaties wore completed here be- !
tween representatives of Finland and ;
soviet Russia. They will be put into es
feet immediately, nnd regular diplomatic
and commercial relatlona will be opened
between Moscow and Helsingfors.

Dr. Edwards’ Olive Tablets do not

Gas Rate Question
The Water-Gas Problem I
We have shown that this company was organized fpr the I
pose of producing pas from by-product coke ovens only. It B
fully realized from tho beginning that no other process would m B
60-cent gas possible. The spokesmen for the company would neß
have asked citizens to subscribe to the stock of the companjß
they had believed that any other process would have to be
ployed. If
Asa precautionary measure the company at once built av, Jy
gas plant In order to prevent interruption to the gas service of I
city in event of temporary interruptions to coke oven operating
Such a plant can be started up quickly and was regarded asH
essential adjunct to a coke plant when the latter was to be tfl
to supply a city with gas. But it was known that the compH
would always lose money on its operation if it were to sell gasi
60 cents.
Until recent years the water gas plant was never operated e;
cept to meet temporary emergencies, when the losses were m
heavy and could be absorbed in the ordinary expenses of the ccß
pany. M
But in recent years the shortage of coal or the unprecede A
increase in the demand for gas or (as at present) the
In the demand for coke, ha3 compelled the company to prodJ
water gas in large quantities. In 1917, 10% of tho total gas sfl
out was water sas. In 1918, it was 19%. In 1919, it was 14%. M
1920, it was 16Mj%. The total amount sent out in 1920 was cl
535,000,000 cubic feet, or nearly half of the total gas consumption
this city in 1910, and as much as many cities ox 100,000 populaH
consume.
The cost of water gas under the most favorable conditions H
no margin to pay the expenses of the company after it left the hi
er, and it has now reached such a point that It entails a ruinous ll
The following is a comparison of bare manufacturing costs, alii
ing nothing for depreciation or plant overhead, to say nothing abl
the general expenses of the company: S
1914. 1920. ■
Gas Oil 15.5 cents 33.4 cents fl

Hero is an increase of about 125% in the bare cost of gaH
the holder. This vouid not mean much if water gas were prodiH
in only trifling quantities to meet occasional emergencies, but wS
525,000,900 cubic feet have to be made, tho water-gas

Since a certain percentage of this gas is lost
holder and the consumer's burner (this year 7.21%) the
of manufacture has been 69.6 cents for gas which is
the consumer's premises for 60 cents. If proper charges vfl
added for interest on our large investment in water-gas equipml
and depreciation on the equipment and taxes on that part of ■
property, the cost of producing this gas would be over 90
per M cubic feet, and this figure would still allow nothing fovW
cost of delivering it, reading meters, collecting accounts,
complaints, paying interest and taxes on our distribution
meeting any other of the general expenses of the company. Unliß
coke-oven gas, this process gives us nothing to sell but the
itself.
But ignore all of these expenses outside of the
plant—we will receive this year for this part of the business sll
•520 less than we spend on it. I
It is sometimes said that “strap-hangers” of street railtl
companies enable them tr exist and make their profits when thl
are any. But the “strap-hangers’’ of the gas utility are breakl
the back of the gas company. In other words, this company wcl
be better off today if it had soid in 1920, 535,000,000 cubic feet
gas than it did sell. ;a|
Now the proper provision to meet the needs of Indiana-®
must include enlargement of our water-gas plants. Such enbal
rnent is proposed for two reasons: First, because it would bo, cH
mercially unwise to enlarge our coke oven plants in the next H
years, or until the country's industries can readily absorb the
put of wartime coke-oven construction; Second, because tills cfl
munity makes unusually irregular changes in its gas
that it is impossible for coke-ovens to respond to them and
water-gas auxiliary plants are more necessary than they
twelve years ago. JM
We ask the impartial judgment of this City on this quesF^i
Having just n-.et with a direct loss of over $160,000
operation of existing water-gas plants, how many inves:
prepared to furnish capital to build more plants to
losses? . *
Or how many investors will care to put new capital in|H
gas business of Indianapolis If it is known that the people wi*l|
mand service at less than bare cost with no allowance whatevl
for a return on the new capital which is now needed? |
