CONFEREES ARE AiouriGEir HUGHES, LODGE, UNDERWOOD AND ROOT SELECTED BY PRESIDENT HARDINb. NO GOUGING OF THE VISITORS Stepe Already Taken te Prevent Profiteering in the Capital Far Eaat Question Likely te Precede Armament Dieeuaaloit. By EDWARD B. CLARK. Washington. It has been announced by Prealdent Harding that the Ameri can member of the forthcoming con ference on limitation of armaments and Far Eaat problems will be Chart ee Eratrt nmrne; u cisrj of state, Repnbllcan ; Henry Cabot Lodge, Cnlted States aenator from Maaaa rhusetta and chairman of the aenate committee on foreign relatione, Re pnbllcan ; Ellhu Root, former secretary of atate and one time aenator from New York, Republican, and Oscar W. I'nderwood, aenliar United Statea senator from Alabama, Democrat Recently la waa declared that the Washington offlrlala felt the confer ence would not be so long drawn out aa at first It waa believed must be the case. In fart, one or two of the officials have said that they believe agreements well ran be reached with in a limit of three montha. There has been a change In thla feeling within a few days. It la now thought to be rertaln that the confereDce will go well Into the spring and that per haps early summer atlll may aee the conferees at work. President Harding and Secretary of State Hughes have found It necessary to call attention to a matter which already haa been discussed by the present writer. The necessity of brevity In newspaper headllnea haa caused the coining conference fre quenly to be called a disarmament con ference. The President and the aecre tary of state desire particularly that the country should know that It la nothing of the kind, but la a confer ence called to disrusa and to agree on "limitation of armament." Visitor Not to B Gouged. Washington ha been much upset by the stories which have gone abroad of the intended gouging by local land lords and local merchants of the foreign visitors and the vast throng of American visitor who will be here during the conference. The real estate board baa taken tip the matter and the vtirloua commercial bodies here also have taken It up. It I now declared that there will be no proMt cering In Waahington while the visitors are here,' ami that any attempt at It proa-iiy will be checked and that If any one succeeds in the actual act of gouging, aud It can be proved, he will be promptly and properly pun laded. It took only one known Instance to start the crusade against profiteer ing In the capital. The representa lives iif one foreign embassy found a house which they knew would be suited to the purposes of their con ference delegation. They asked the owner of the house what rent he would ask for It for a period of six months. He promptly said that he would give it over for fl.OtsJ a month. This meant that the rental would be $18,000 for the six month. The house actually la worth only firt.OtiO. Ho It ran be Been that the renter In six himithe would have paid about .'!,( more than the value of tla proierty Thla matter wa brought to the attention of the State department, aud the owner of the pro'it) In queailon will continue te cenpy It himself. Thla prvyd In state of attempted profiteering has beetl of aervlre, for It haa forced a campaign here which will1 atop like things In the future. The question of limiting armament and of solving Par East problem flrat will be taken up In the confer enda, because nntll they- are aettled It prill he almost Impossible to take any action along lines of armament limitation ' Far Eaat Probleme. There arc condition in the Par Eaat which might make for war. China looms large aa perplexing sub Ject : ao doea Siberia, and so do aome Of the Island of the seas. What are called apherea of Influence must he considered; mandates under the League of Natlona must he -onsldered. and many other thlnga must come In the category of necessary consldera tion. When all these things are fixed, anr tha conferee agree, the matter of navle probably will be taken np. TV countries chiefly Interested today In navy llmltatlona are the United 8rjte, Great Britain and Japan, al thWugb of course Italy and France an tarotna) extent interested. - Aa the country already knows. probably pretty definitely, the question of how big an army each nation may keep for defensive purposea will forrr one of the chief matters of discus slnn. It Is a pretty fair prediction that when the conference Is over It will be found that Prance will be al lowed to retain a larger force of sol dlera thau la any other country France feara future aggression from the East. No Preliminary Conferences. Secretary of State Hughes la atand Ing hy his original word that the United Statea will not give its sanction to any preliminary conference uo llml tatlon of armaments and Far Km problem to be held either here or else where. Till means, of course, that the administration also la "standing by Because of this attitude of the ad ministration. It aeema certain thai when the conferem-e open in Novem ber It will start without any defintie prearranged plan for reaching conclu sions on policies. Of'c ae 'ie rep reentatlvee of each nntlon will have their own policies tlrinly fixed In their minda, and probably they will know- how murh they can yield aud how much they must insist upon, but there will be In evideni-e no prearranged agreement between any two nations a to what course Is to be pursued. At least there will be no such pre arranged agreement unless It ha been readied ao secretly that the United State know nothing about It. It aeem today it If prior to the meeting of the conference more Is to be known of the Japanese pinna mid policies than of those of any other nation. There have been well defined difference of opinion on certain things between the United States uml Julian," w hlch are better known ami understood than the differences be tween thla country and any other ex cept Japan. The United State ami Japan have shown a disposition to try to pave the way for an easy tot- tlement In advance of some of the outstanding troubles. Success may or may not come, but there ara sign that most of the dlltlctiltle are believed to he not insurmountable. Nwa Gatherers to Help One Another. Wheu the conference begiu lu Waahington the foreign correspond ent who will be present will Uml their American brethren anxious to Inter view theiu at the close of each duy.

It will be somewhat difficult for American newapaper uiea to get the psychology, If that la what It should be called of.

America will be called upon to halt in its ac tivitiea and to dedicate itself to hon oring the unknown dead of the great war and to meeting in support of the limitation of armaments on Armis tice Day, the opening day of the in ternational conference on the limita tion of armaments. A national holi day will probably be proclaimed. This ia the tentative program for the opening of the conference, it haa Just been learned at the White House. It ia planned to have the delegates of the various powers as semble and then adjourn to take part in the ceremonies at Arlington, when the unknown dead of the world war will be honored by memorial services. The conference will adjourn until the following; day, when it will meet for organisation. In this way all of the delegates f tha powers taking part in the conference will be given an opportunity to do honor to the unknown American dead of the war. President Harding ia to deliver an address at the memorial services at Arlington on Armistice Day, and it is understood that he will also address the opening of the conference in the Pan-American building on the follow ing day, welcoming the delegates to this country. Plans are under way to have meetings thruout the country on Armistice Day, at which the hope of the country will be expressed that succesa will crown the effort to limit armament. The American Federation of Labor is planning such meetings, and it ia known that the woman's or ganizations and many of the churches are also planning meeting, 'some of them to be meetings at which prayers will be offered and others at which formal action expressing the hope that limitation of armaments will be achieved. It haa been learned that at least two women will be appointed by the President to the advisory committee which will give ita counsel to the American delegation. It made clear that this committee is not to be chosen merely from groups. How ever, it is understood that a former service man probably will be appoint cd as well as high officers of the Army and Navy officers will likely depend upon the rank of the Army and Navy representatives sent to the conference by the foreign power. Business will also be represented in this committee. It is the dusire of the administra tion to have an advisory committee touching closely all the interests of the country with which the American delegation may sit down end discuss the situation at any time it desires. THREE SHINES OF A KIND" ALL IN A ROW On Tuesday night last three moon shine stills were found running full blast in the neighborhood of the head of what la known aa Harmons Lick Creek, in Garrard county. The stills were close together and a large tpuantity of prepared beer mash, to gether with other material for the manufacture of whisky, was destroy ed. Owing to the lay of the terri tory and the time of the raid several supposed operators succeeded in making good their get-a-way, as tha number of oifkers making the raid was small. One operator, who gave hia name a Jim Helton, waa cap tured. Whisky waa running from I a " - 1 I & 2 1 ' I JLjti'iiiiaw MmJ.lAm VorldNews By. J. R. Robertaon, Profeaawr ? , Hietory ami Political Science Berea College Arrangements are progressing for the Disarmament Conference which ' ia to meet in Washington In Novem ber.' The Prealdent and his adminis tration are seeking so far as possi ble to make tha American people un derstand that they must not expect - too much in the way of results, and that the U. S, will. !r able to ft along all right if there are no re sults at all. An effort U also being made to 'Rive a dignity and Serious ness to the occasion sucti as its ob- .' jects merit.' At present the question of secret or open sessions ia the on most widely and rigorously discussed. There seems also to be a tendency on the part of the nations participating to increase the size of the delegation. ' It ia now believed that neither Lloyd 1 George nor the French premier, Briand, will be present. A rather interesting and significant tendency ia being observed in Russia since the f'od short go began. The Soviet regime, headed . by Lenino, realising their inability to meet the situation, are throwing more respon sibility on the provinces and in this wsy bringing about a decentral isation of authority and power. This may be explained either aa a genuine desire to save the life of the Rus sian population or aa a means of avoiding responsibility and so saving the life of the government In either case it is likely to produce im portant results in the solution of the Russian problem and the Soviet sys tem. Germany haa suffered a aaost dis astrous accident during the week by the explosion in one of her la-ra chemical factories. It is said that the shock waa felt at a distance of fifty miles. There were many work men in and around the factory at the time, and the loss of life was large. It is reported that MS were killed and 2.000 wounded. Tha fac tory1 was -located hr the Rhine die tnct, a short distance from Mann heim, and was started during the war. The prevalence of poiaonous gasea made it almost impossible to da much in the way of relief among the ruins for a considerable time. The cause of the explosion is not yet known. The three peace treaties between the United States, Germany, Aus tria and Hungary have passed thru the hands of the Committee of For eign Affairs in the Senate and are now before the Senate for ratification. Only one member of the Commit tee, Senator Borah, opposed the sub mission' of the treaties. His opposi tion was based on the idea that the treaties by adopting certain sections of the Treaty of Versailles and re ferring to that treaty for the word ing might be so misconstrued as to make the U. S. to aome degree a party to the much disliked Peace of Versailles. An interesting feature in connec tion with the present meeting of the League of Nations at Geneva ia the report of tha committee on amend ments. It was quite generally thot that the famous ' Article X would be removed or substantially changed. The committee, however, refuses to make such a recommendation and re asserts the essential necessity of that Article to the efficiency of the League taking a position practically similar to that of ex-Preaidcnt Wilson. This opinion is largely one of defer ence to the smaller nation who be lieve their existence and welfare ab solutely de pen i upon it. The question of the Panama Canal tolls is coming to the front once more in connection with the pending con ference for disarmament. The grant ing of preferred rates to American vessels is considered to be a question pertaining to the Pacific, and hence likely to be brought up in the pre- conferenre discussions. It so hap pens that the canal toll bill is next in order for consideration in Con gress, and is to be postponed until after the conference. This meaaure ia not liked by many foreign nations and particularly by England, to whom it seems to be a matter of bad faith since she gsve up her rights in the Canal Zone because of this agree ment the still when the officers arrived on the scene. Prohibition Agent Kin naird headed the raiding party.
