It ia reported that the Italian Cabi
net has resigned aa a result of some
criticism over the suppression of an
Eulogy of Popo Benedict In tho
Chamber of Deputies. Tho relation
between tho national government and
the Pope has never been cordial since
1870, when the temporal possessions
of tho Papacy wero included in tho
United Italy. Tho Pope at that timo
waa assigned a certain amount of
land in Rome with the Vatican aa hi
homo and a large appropriation of
money to meet his expenses. He haa
never- accepted the money, however,
and haa persistently considered him
self a prisoner. Tho present minis
try came into power at the time of
the making of the Treaty of Ver
sailles, when Italy was so much out
of harmony with the Allies.
The commUeion on reparations, ap
pointed by the Allies, made a request
of Germany as to her intentions in
regard to the 'payment now due. In
recent reply Germany asks to be
relieved from any money payment
for the period of one year. She alao
asks that the Allies allow her to pay
more in kinf and less in money.
Thus no direct answer was made to
the request She defended her -posi
tion by saying that the country would
not stand ' any more taxation. It
seems strange that auch different re
ports can arise in regard to the
financial status of Germanv. It ia
certainly trite that the cost of living
has risen aa the value of the money
haa fallen, and this has led to a seri
ous strike on all the railroads for a
forty percent raise pf wagea. Trans
portation is at a standstill for the
present and no solution in sight.
The British explorer, Sir Ernest
Shackleton, died during the week on
his way to make further explorations
in the Antarctic region. Altho he
waa surpassed by Scott and Amund
sen in the successful quest for the
southern axis of the earth, yet he
came very close to reaching it in the
course of his four notable explora
tions. He held all kinds of honor
and medals from geographical and
exploring associations. He was born
in Ireland, graduated from college,
and began his career in the British
Merchant Marine. In this last voy
age he planned to chart enough un
discovered regions to maka his total
achievements along that lino in the
Southern Atlantic, Southern Pacific,
and Antarctic oceans amount to 30,
000 miles. He was particularly con
cerned in finding an island named
Tuanaki which had come to be lost
to the knowledge of man.
Recent statistics given out show
that the commerce of the U. S. has
fallen off during the year ending in
December, 1921, by over two billion
dollars. In most cases the exports
have fallen off more than the im
ports. Of course the greatest fall
has been In the trade with Europe,
but it ia true also of the trade with
China, Japan, South America and
South Africa. It is less with some
countries thin with others but is a
condition which is general. Revival
f business and all that goes with
it ia not likely to come about in our
country until this condition ia
changed. The meeting that ia to be
held at Genoa is an effort to do this
and ought to have the approval of
public sentiment to the same- extent
that the Washington Conference did.
The fact that the meeting takes place
in Europe instead of America should
not lessen out interest in it
The new Pope haa been elected
sooner than waa expected. The sue.
cessful candidate waa Cardinal Ratti,
the Archbishop of Milan. This
churchman ia younger than those
usually selected tm the position of
Pope, but ita ia believed that this
will be an advantage. He ia a
scholarly man and haa been intereaU.
ed in the libraries of the church which
contain priceless manuscripts. He
served as Papal Nuncio to Poland
for a time after the war and did hla
work ao well that Poland was held
in loyalty to the church and be waa
made Archbishop of Milan, the moat
active commercial city in Italy.
While the former Pope waa of aris
tocratic descent, the new Pope Piut
XI is of democratic descent, coming
from the people. He ia a moderate
in policies, and It ia believed will
do much to harmonise the church and
the Italian nation.
