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.

The atti tude of the United States
toward the Conference at Genoa is
causing a delay which may result in
turning the whole matter over to the
League of Nations or to individual
action on the part of the nations. 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

There is a report that Lloyd
George has under consideration
proposition for a "ten-year truce" In
military activity. 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.

The long controversy between Li
thuania and Poland seems to bo at
an end by an act of union between
the two countries. 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
