FOUR SELECTED FOR AMERICA Secretary Hughes Suggests Topics for Discussion?League of Nations Elects Moore Judge of International Court ? Senate Completes Its Draft of Tax Bill. Preliminary work on the conference on limitation of armaments and Far Eastern problems is going on steadily, and before long it will be known just who will take part in tjie meeting, and in a general way what they will discuss. The several nations concerned are selecting their representatives, those for the United States being the first to be announced. President Harding has appointed for that high duty Secretary of State Hughes, Senator Henry Cabot I,odge. Elihu Root and Senator Oscar W. Underwood?three Republicans and one Democrat. As Premier Hnra will be unable to come, Admiral Baron Kato has been selected to head the Japanese delegation, and Ambassador to the United States Shidetiura will also be a member. it is still believed Premier Lloyd George will lead the British contingent, and It Is likely that his associates will be Andrew Bonar Law. Secretary for War Evans and Lord Lee of Fareham, first lord of the admiralty. The British dominions, especially Australia, New Zealand and Canada, have been strenuously arguing their right to representation In the conference in view of their great Interst In matters concerning the Pacific and Far East, and it is believed that some of their leading statesmen will be asked to attend in the capacity of advisers. Two more nations have been added to the list of those invited to the conference. With the consent of five principal powers Holland and Belgium will participate in the proceedings insofar as their interests in the Far East are concerned. Their status thus will be the same as that of China, for it is not to be supposed tliev will take tfurt In the discussion on armaments. Diplomatic conversations and informal exchanges between the governments concerned have progressed so far that Secretary Hughes has been able to send to the other four great powers and to China a suggested outline of the topics for the conference. This proposed agenda has not been made public, pending its acceptance by the other governments, but is believed to include. Aside from limitation of armaments, these suggestions: Territorial integrity of Russia, the open door, and equal opportunity for economic activities, the powers acting as trustees until Russia shull have recovered and set up a central, representative government. Territorial integrity of China and the "open door." The substitution of International co operation for tne past practice of seeking selfish, monopolistic advantages in JJUna. * Assistance to China in achieving administrative. fiscal and judicial reforms. T^kvo newspaper says Mr. Hughes j also includes in his suggestions mandates If the? have not been previously settled, and Manchuria and the Chinese Eastern railway. That question of yandates?meaning in this case especially Yap?is causing the Japanese a lot of worry. They don't want it brought up in the conference and are doing their utmost to get it settled before the Washington meet opens. Their continued occupation of Shantung is another matter they desired to keep <>ut of the conference, but in this they are likely to he disappointed, They have asked China to enter Into private negotiations for the settlement of that controversy, but the more Intelligent elements in <. tuna reiy <>n me wusnington meeting to right thetr euuntry's wrongs, and the 1'eklng government INDIAN CHIEF GREAT RUNNER ' Rain-in-the-Face Ran 300 Miles on Snow in Three Days?Trained by Father.

Kngln icun-Cunudian border at Blaine, Wash., has refused Japan's proposition, fearing that It would he overthrown if It accepted. Some of the leaders In that government have long been suspected of being pro-Japanese. An Interesting report in Washington Is that Robert Lansing, former secretary of state under President Wilson, will be an adviser to the Chinese delegation. The assembly of the League of Nations continues to function, in disregard of the assertions of various personages that the league Is virtually dead. Parenthetically, it may be said that the treaty of Versailles guarantees the league's life for 30 years for the purposes of administering the Soar basin and the control of Dunzlg. The chief accomplishment of the assembly last week was the election of Judges of the International court of Justice. Elihu Root having declined, for personal reasons, to be a candidate, the Latin-American group brought about the election of John Bassett Moore, of New York. He and ten others were accepted by the council. Three deputy Judges also were elected and confirmed, but there was trouble over the choice of the fourth deputy. Three times the assembly elected Senor Alvarez of Chile, and three times the council voted for M. Descamps of Belglum. At last the deadlock was referred to a committee. Senor Amador of Panuma threatened to withdraw his delegation if Alvarez was not accepted by the council. The question of the league's competence to judge the Tacna-Arica dispute and the Chile-Bolivia treaty was referred to a committee of three Jurists. Senor Edwards of Chile stated that he was not prepared to admit thut the league was licensed to intrude In purely South American nffulrs In violation of the Monroe doctrine. Senor Aramayo of Bolivia, having received new Instructions from La Paz, withdrew his demand that the dispute with Chile be included in the agenda of tlie assembly. The Irish?meaning the Sinn Felners?were willing to hold a conference with the British cabinet at Inverness this week, as proposed by Premier 1 lrwv/1 hnf uc wqc oiullv r*r<?. dieted, they didn't want to submit to the only condition Imposed, that the Sinn Fein must abandon its demand for separation from the empire. De Valera sent Harry Boland and Joseph McGrath with his acceptance of the invitation. but in his letter he made sev-> eral reservations, chief of which was his objection to admitting Ireland's allegiance to the British crown before entering the conference. He also argued that if the premier objected to the secession of Ireland from the empire lie should not support the secession of Ulster from Ireland. Mr. Lloyd George sent the couriers back to Dublin with a message to De Valera that his note was unsatisfactory and he had better write another. This the governor supplemented by a telegram to De Valera canceling the arrangements for the Inverness conference because he felt that, in view of the Irish attitude, negotiations would be useless. The premier was as conciliatory as he could be consistently, but at this writing it is uncertain whether the negotiations for peace will continue. The Dail Eirann, however, named its dele Kates for the conference, if It is held, and I)e Vnlera is not one of them. The delegates are: Arthur Griffith, founder of Sinn Fein and republican foreign minister; Michael Collins, minister of finance; Itohert Barton, secretary of economic affairs; Knnion Duggan, chief Irish republican army liaison officer, who helped to arrange the truce, and George Gavan Duffy, the Irish envoy to Rome. Several of these men are classed as moderates. The Freeman's Journal of Dublin says: "Their task may have its difficulties, but its successful accomplishment will he the crown of a great achievement. Roth nations have their hearts set on an honorable ending here and now to the struggle of centuries. Their desire is well within the realm of possibility and practicability. All the efforts of the would-be wreckers In Great Britain hitherto have failed. There is then enough statesmanship m the Irish delegation to confirm that failure and to complete a fabric of peace." Director of the Itudget Dawes lias Informed the senate finance committee Greeks, young men were trained to run great distances. Thus it happened that Rain-ln-theFa<e made a run that.

Reductions for the War department, shipping hoard, railroads, veterans' bureau and in miscellaneous places will provide $305,000,000 of this. The remainder will be saved by better co-ordination 'in handling departmental purchases and snies of supplies. The finance committee completed its redrafting of the house tax bill arid experts began getting the measure ready for presentation in the senute on September 21. Disregarding the recommendations of Secretary of the Treasury Mellon, the committee voted to repeal the excess profits tax beginning January 1, 1922, and the capital stock tax effective in 1922, and to substitute for these a flat corporation tax of 15 per cent, effective January 1, 1922. Among other changes in the house bill voted by the committee are retention of freight and passenger transportation taxes at half their present rates and those on express shipments and oil pipe lines at their present rates for another year, and continuation of many miscellaneous taxes which the house voted to repeal. The fight against the Ku Klux Klan Is growing more interesting and more widespread every day, and the Klan Is fighting hack against Its enemies with vigor. Various papers in many parts of the country have undertaken "exposures" of the organization and its methods and aims, and the Klc.n has started or says it will start libel suits against those publications that misrepresent It. In Chicago an organization called the National Unity council has been formed with the avowed purpose of suppressing the Klan and its socalled "invisible empire." The council, which is to be extended throughout the country, Is headed by Edward F. Dunne, former governor of Illinois. He says the Ku Klux are a menace to the nation because they "avowedly proscribe millions of their fellow citizens solely because, either they worship God in a manner permitted by the Con stitution of the United States, or because they were born without the United States, They place the black man without the pale of the law. Such organizations foment racial, religious m and political enmities Instead of en- ? couraging comity and friendship between all classes of American citizens, which should be the aim of every broad-minded American." Meanwhile the Klan continues to grow in numbers with extraordinary rapidity, now having, it is said, more than half a million members, and being organized in every state in the Union except New Hampshire, Utah and Montana. The great packing concerns of Armour, Swift. Wilson and Cudahy last week put into operation the newly devised "American shop representation" system, their government-sponsored agreement with their workers having expired. All disputes are to be submitted to shop councils comprised of employees' elected representatives and persons selected by the employers, and national councils, to which shop councils may nppeal, are to be formed in similar manner. Employees' representatives must he employed in the shop and must be citizens or have taken out their first papers. Any person is eligible for employment, whether n union member or not. While this Is "open shop," the pnckers say it is not a change of policy since they always have been open shop. Ninety per cent of their workers, they say, assented to the plan. - ' 1 . The terrific flood that struck San Antonio and other parts of Texas has subsided, but its full results are just beginning to be realized. Several hundred persons, mostly negroes and Mexicans, perished. The property loss in San Antonio is placed at $3,000,000 and elsewhere at $10,000,000. The mayor of the city appealed to Washington for army tents and cots for the thousands of homeless refugees. i The Rritlsh cruiser Dauntless, bearing th*' bodies of the American victims of the ZK-'J disaster, arrived at New York Friday, escorted by a fleet of aircraft. destroyers and other vessels.

T>4 Hit or Misi Makes a Moto THE problem of obtaining uniform quality is one of the difficulties that the successful gasoline producer has had to solve. The matter of varying quality is one of the greatest annoyances to the gasoline user. It was easy to get a standard product when practically all the gasoline came from one or two types of crude petroleum. Comparatively little gasoline was used then. Today, the demand is so great that all parts of the globe have been explored for petroleum, which accounts for the great range of "crudes" on the market. Gasoline must be uniform not only in one or two or three respects, but in every way that affects motor operation.
