NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENTEVENTS Airship Roma. Bought in Italy, Is Destroyed With Loss of Thirty-Four Lives. The treaties signed by the mem bers of the Washington Conference are now all before the United Statea Senate. In a recent adilresa in Eng land Ambassndor Harvey referred with much certainty to their speedy ratification, claiming to have infor mation, the exactness of which could not be questioned. Probably he la generally, will the Senate, reservations the case of between the United States, England, France, and Japan. It is known that there are some senators who are expected to fight some of the treaties and criti cise others. Most of the Republi cans are likely to vote for ratifica tion, because the treaties are part of their administration. Most of the Democrats are likely to vote for the treaties because they secure, in part, what they desired to secure under the leadership of President Wilson. TREATY ORDERED REPORTED Pacific Pact.

The latter course would be misfortune too great to estimate. France, es pecially, is showing a disposition to separate action. She haa made a treaty with Turkey which upset somo of the plans partially agreed upon and may lead to a new arrange ment for Constantinople. There aro indications, also, that France la en gaged in negotiating an arrangement with the Russian Soviet which will be for her own hjterest and possibly retain the cordial relations which have existed so lonfe between the two countries. French influence in the Eastern Mediterranean aa well as in Russia would give rise to an interest ing situation. A general conference, however, would be better, especially as it is possible that it might con tinue some of the ideals started t 4 WaahiaKten, the heroic efforts of her navigators mm the frantic casting overboard of all bullust by the crew, the huge balloon plunged downward from a height of alwiut KI feet.

Such an agree ment would be a most fitting sequel to the naval holiday initiated at Washington. The plan would be that all European nations should recog nize the existing boundaries for that length of time. As most of the dis putes among nations are caused by boundary questions, the motive for war would be removed. It was thought the proposition was being prepared in anticipation of the Ge noa Conference, and it is certainly to be hoped that some chance may be given for its presentation to the European nationa for their considera tion. England has shown her genu ine desire for peace and could con sistently champion such a measure.

Lithuania sepa rates herself from Russia and unitea with Poland. The final scene Is said to have been affecting and dramatic as the Polish flag was raised in the council hall, and a venerable Bishop of the church closed the ceremony with a benediction. The union fol lows in many respects the one made centuries ago when the two countries were united in 1413 and Poland be came a strong and influential atate. Neither Poland nor Lithuania, how ever, are now as large as they were at that time. This disposes of a per plexing boundary question which the League of Nations was called on to settle. If this . is a result of the settlement, it shows good work. The Alliea have been showing con siderable concern of late over the question of the German schools. A clause in the Treaty of Versaillea pertained to the instruction to be given, with the purpose of safeguard ing the new republican institutions. It is generally believed that Germany ran well take care of that, aa her people on the whole show little dis position to go back to a monarchy.
