For Quick Results Try The Reformer VIEWS OF HUGHES ON THE LEAGUE Sufficiently, Broad to Suit Both Factions in the Senate WILL NOT HAMPER HIM AS SECRETARY SEEING THINGS sssEsaxrA Could Consistently Ask Foreign Nations to Join New Organization for Prevent ing War or Suggest Mrdifications of Present League. By DAVID LAWRENCE.. ( S j .ctiul Despatch To Tlie Reformer.) , Copyright 1921. j WASHINGTON. Jan. 17.-The practi-j cal centainty that Charles Evans Hughes will lie secretary of state in the Hardin? cabinet hn.s led some members of the t-en-atc in the last few days to take a retro spective sluice at the views of the former associate justice, not his views on legal or political (iiiestioiis, hut his utterances on foreign policy, which, during the cam paign had a 'passing value hut which now will become the basis of American action, after .March 4. "It should be i emcmbered," wrote Mr. Hughes on one occasion, '"that the great protection against war for a considerable pciiod of years will be found Hot, in any toiin of words, that may now be adopted, however desirable these mav be. but in economic conditions, which are an assur-i aiice that for a considerable time at least, we shall not have a recurrence of world st: tie. "The danger now lies,"' he added, '"not in the menace of force employed to, fiuther imperial designs, hut in the! disorder due to a break up and the re moval (it traditional restraints and the tendency to revolution within states. In making committments it should lie remem-! lured that while it is highly important' that at this time we should realize that' it is iii aet K-able to promote peace and se-! cure stabli conditions we should be cau-j turns hi t'l.-diina promises which are to be reduced in unknown contingencies.'' otne ot the main points in Mr. Hughes's criticism of the present cove r.aiu o; the league of nations are as fol lows: (1,1 Omitting the guarantee in Aiticle l'i.

After the transaction of regular business, the meeting will lie addressed by Arthur W. GilWrt of Doston. com missioner f agriculture, who has ac cepted an invitation to be present. An invitation also has been extended to W. It. Drown of Berlin. N.

Gooher. secretary of the National Trotting association, and J.,. II.

President Hall extends an invitation to all those present. to be his guests at a dinner to be given at Hotel Worthy at 1 o'clock p. m.. when intermission will be declared and business resumed at the t'lose of dinner. This should be one of the most important and successful meetings ever held by the association, as there are many questions to Im discussed, and the prosects are that the year 1021 will be the banner year for fair meet- j nigs. I RAILROAD PROPERTY IN STATE APPRAISED Boston & Maine IJnes in Vermont Are (iiven a Valuation of $12.158,000 Local Trolley IJne $10,000. MOXTPKLIEIt. Jan. 17. Melvin i. Morse, tax commissioner, has filed the fol lowing schedule showing the appraisal of railroad properties in the state, as of Dec. 31, 1!)1S. and 1020. respectively: IMS 1020 ENGLAND FACES HOUSE SHORTAGE cerns tariff ! c;i diall any (t States MH laws are not I'lovision t toquivo bv c ther v. ay, ;; h as immigration and 1 cmhiaccd. j :at l. i lorcign power J msont . pui chase or in j v possessions on the Amei ican continent cent theieto. ol the the islands adja- .f an meniiier oi tiie',l,l at its pleasure on a (41 Provision that the settlement purely American iUstions shall be l unite. t primarily to the .'vnicnean nations, j and that European nations shall not inter-j vene unless leqtiestcd to do so by the' American nations ) I5( Provision that no member of the league shall be constituted a mandatory without it's oiw-nt and no' European or .Asiatic power .-hall be constituted a man datory oi any American people. (Oi Explicit provision that unanimous agreement or decision is reqaireil. ( 7 1 Provision that league may withdraw specified notice. Sneaking particularly ci Article 10 Mr. Hughes said he regarded the guarantee in Article ten as "a trouble breeder and not a peace-maker." He declared that he be lieved it to be "unnecessary and unwise" and that "there is little ground to suit pose that it will prevent, war on the con traiy. it is likely to move iilusionary and to create disappointment and a sense of injury and injustice on the part of those who are led to place confidence in it." Here is the nataciaph, however, which makes it possible for Mr. Hughes to ap proach the Harding campaign view of the league issue and his own early inclinatio is toward modification of the present cove nant of the league: ''I think that it is :i fallacv to sunnose that helnfnl coopera tion in the future will be assured by the attempted compulsion ot an inilcxil'le rule. Eat her will such cooperation depend upoti the fostering of linn friendships, springing from an appreciation of com munity of ideals, interests and purposes, and such friendships 'are more likely to be promoted bv freedom of conference, than by the effort to create hard and fast engagements."' . The foregoing is . sufficiently broad to permit Mr. Hughes to decide eventually that freedom of justice without obligation or committment can be obtained by so. modifing the covenant as to leave Amer ica a free hand in every thing yet permit ting her to sjt as a memner of an organi zation which is already in operation: or it mav permit Mr. Hughes to ask other na tions in the league to join a new associa tion which has much less specific powers than the present, league and one that is Mattel tied after the Hague conferences. The selection of Mr. Hughes as secre tary of state is due largely to the fact that his lecord is general enough and his ut terances broad enough to give him a free hand in faking advantage of such -machinery for international, cooperation as is already i'i existence or in the setting up of new 'processes fitted to the campaign pledges of American freedom of action, in all international affairs. One thing is sure neither the I.ode teservationists pot- the iirecoiicilablcs can claim that Mr. Hughes's words make it impossible for him to accent their point of view and there are plenty of middle-of-the-road senator who think the Ilmdies mind will produce a compromise. They expect him to lead the partv out of the wilder ness of dissension and turn the thought and abilitv of the iarty to a solntio i of the acute business and economic problems of reconstruction. Estimated That 1.000,000 Are Needed in the I nited Kingdom Spending Big Sums to Build Them. LONDON. Jan. 17.

Perhaps the chief reason for this has been the economic factor. Houses which three or four times as much to build as before the war. cannot obviously let or sell at pre-war figures. Nevertheless, according to govern ment statistics Mime (Ki.tM Ml new houses were started in 1020 and the number contracted for has risen during the year from 10.40 to l.Tk.'iM. One striking feature of the effort to provide hous-s is a housing scheme con ducted by the office of works, which was empowered to spend (!.(MH.(MK) jiounds spread over IS months. Its operations started in Cainberwell. a south .London borough. An arrangement was made by which the office of works supplied the plans, material and supervision, while the local federation of trades unions supplied the labor ami the borough coun cil assumed responsibility for the fin ances, llictplan worked smoothly and louses were built for "SO imiuthIs apiece. saving of nt least 2m pounds, making total saving to taxpayers of PtfMMHI Bane & Mont.

The financial difficulties connected with the housing problem have been re sponsible for the creation by local au thorities of interest bearing "housing bonds" which are in some localities a fairly iopular investment. In the north of I'ngland.. concrete houses have become jxipular, as machin ery hugely replaces man-power in their erection. In some parts of Iondon. too. such houses have been built recently, owing to the shortage of bricks', the high rate of wages and other difficulties. Bit; KEDITTIONS IN VALVE. an - "V - W X.W L I IDC!
