GREAT SHIPS FOR JAPAN. Japan is not sleeping on her oppor tunities in naval development or ocean-carrying. A recent report is to the effect that the Nippon Yusen Kai sha has formulated a plan by which 69 steamers with an aggregate of 515, 000 tons are to be built in a period of it years at a cost ol $110,000,000, sas the Chugai Shogyo. Of the fore going total, 36 boats of 382.000 tons would be ocean liners carrvtng pa mongers and cargo from Japan to Liv erpool, the United States, Shanghai und other points. In addition, the Nippon Yusen Kaisha Is adding to its service between July 1, 1019, and the earac date in 1920. ten Bteami n ag gregating 90,000 tons. These plans an not for the purpose of disposing of the company's excess funds, but are for i meeting the tendem i s of Bhlppin-' throughout the world. The naval dockyard at Kurd, Japan, 1 launched a warship, ihe largest yet built in Japan, on November 9. This I 1 v as the battleship Nagato, the keel of hich was laid in AukusL 1917. but of' I which the building was considerably delayed owing to scarcity of workers and to changes in the plan of con struction as a result of lessons fur nished by the Jutland battle. At first i' was proposed to build a ship of the llyuga class with a displacement of 1,260 tons, but later her tonnage was changed to 40,000. As soon as her equipment and armament are com. lilotpij, work will be commenced on the li'illdlng of the Kaga, the Nagato's t Bter ship. The Nagato will be armed with 16-inch guns having a 30-mile range and her engines may develop a apet d of 25 knots.

France, had they turned their war ' making in the direction of America land proceeded to make a surprise dXive against thiw country, it is doubt ful whether America could have re sisted the blow. At that time, all the surplus equipment for an army, all the big gun factories, all the ammunition plant! srere Within striking distance of an army landing anywhere on the shores of New England. With long range gun? and high explosive shells, the enemy could have captured all the important supply points. only a stupidly Indifferent nation, after this disclosure, would go on as Of Old' PTfiriRlnf Its vitn'K In nnv nnr of three or four powerful forces ca pable of invading the United States. , In the past the ocean was looked jupon as ample protection, but today the seas are crossed in a few hours, and the lines of defense muBt be based on interior points, and back of the first lines must be second defen sive points and then the reserves of ammunition, ordnance and general 1 supplies. i The Standard, if it had the power, would remove all arsenals from the jsea coast to guard against surprise or unexpected reverses in the first clash 'with an enemy. America is vulner. able today because so many of its rifle plants and heavy-gun factories 'are within easy reach of a landing force from overseas. nn MANY UNCERTAINTIES. Whal r' the big financiers think ing of business conditions? That ques tion repeatedly is asked by the mer chant, because so much depends on ,thc state of mind of the men who J have the power to expand or restrict :credits and industry. Henry Clews, in his last letter, ex presses some doubt as to the outlook J owing to the number of big national problems awaiting solution He says. "The opening of congress accompa nied by the usual special message from the president and followed by (the annual report of the secretary of (the treasury has done very little to 'change the financial outlook during I the pat week Inasmuch as the pres ident had nothing to say either on i the railways, the Mexican situation or the peace treaty, those who were hop ing for light in some one of these dl rectlons have been obliged to defer their expectations still further. While congressional leaders have indicated that there will be no delay in push ing forward the railroad measure now pending, and while there Is no reason to fear the Bhelving of the question, so far as can be learned, the finan cial community would have been very much better pleased had there ben some disposal of the matter by the president. Much the same may be said of the ire.il of peace; and although i uie Mexican situation is still perhaps I too uncertain to admit of any definite flS i ion, the lack of knowledge as to White House policy has proved a heal 'lattng factor. Business conditions throughout the country up to the close of November (were favorable, the federal reserve iboard stating the activity of trade as' unusual, while manufacturing and transportation have, on the whole, been well occupied Nevertheless the continuous rise of prices and the dif ficulties connected therewith seem to be pointing to a reduction in buying ' power, which may produce lessened activity in both manufacturing and re. tailing. This, coupled with the uncer tainties concerning the foreign trade situation, have created an atmosphere ol uncertainty in business circles which extended to the financial com jmunity and has operated to restrict greater recovery in price." GOVERNOR SPROUL'S ADDRESS. Governor Sproul of Pennsylvania is la candidate for president He was one of the governors who, at The Hermit age In ogden canyon last summer, en trrtained the assembled banqueters with wit and humor. He is clever in 'coining striking sentences and deal ing in the epigrammatic. He is a par. jtlsan of partisans and sees through glasses highly colored. In a speech to day, he made this declaration: I "The rape of the railroads was con iceived in an unholy lust for power and partisan advantage ' Governor Sproul should not be so ex travagant in language. When the rail roads were taken over, they were con gested at every great terminal and in distress every wher. They -wore breaK ing down from coast to coast Within 30 days after they were in government hands, the roads began to function normally and they went through the war period without collapse In the meantime, nearly every electric road Mn the United States all of which were left in private control either ent into, or verged on, bankruptcy Will Governor Sproul tell us more about this rape of the railroads? Then Governor Sproul indulges in this rich conceit: ' We must prepare not only to clsan 'up the governmental mess in which we find ourselves, but we must lay our plans for restoring our nation to the position of respect which it one held."

"If we will como down out r,f the fool's paradise of extravagance and in-! efficiency in which we ha been soar, ing and get back to work in earnest, our troubles und tn our debts will soon vanish." That which has afflicted Auurlca, and is referred to as a fool's paradise, is not wholly American or peculiarly American. It Is an upset world wide. It is in France. In England, in Ger many, in Italy, in Russia, in Japan. It is the unrest, the discontent, the un balance, the grief, the sorrow, the tur moil, the pain of vast masses of peo ple trying to find themselves after four years of the mightiest clash and disorganization that ever t re down the supporting pillars of orderly government. oo New Teacher at Mound Fort School Eva PrarMM rplri Marfrutrtto Sim mons na on of the Instructors at trie Mount Fort school this momlns.
