(Special Despatch to The Reformer.) Copyright 1. WASHINGTON. May 11. One of thet awkward situation in which neither President' Harding nor Secretary of State Hughes can say anything with out seeming to disapprove the apioint nieiit of one f their own anibassodors lias arisen. For the speech of Ambassa dor Harvey in London wasn't submitted to the American government before it was made, and the chances that it would have been edited and certain phrases toned dow n if it had been cabled here for approval. As it is the administration is obliged publicly to stand by the speech and to give the impression that Ambas sador Harvey hasn't said anything indis creet. Nevertheless, in his sweeping denunci ation of the league of nations and his sarcastie'references to President Wilson's war utterances. Ambassador Harvey has admittedly gone farther than lias either .Mr. Harding' ami Mr. Hughes in stating foreign itoiirv.

The Europeans have hoped .that a (ommission might be appointed to con sult with America and work nut a iro- i gram ot changes satisfactory to the I'nited States, and thus bring America into the council of nations. I5ut Ambas sador Harvey lias dashed aside such hopes with this statement : "There still seems to linger in the minds of many here the impression that in some way or other by hook or by crook, unwittingly surely, unwillingly. America may et be beguiled into , he league, of nations. It follows then that the present government of the I'nited States could not, without betray al of its creators and masters, and will not. 1 can assure, have anything vvhatso-' ever io with the league or any com mission or committee, appointed by it or responsible to it directly or indirectly, openly or furtively. The big news of that paragraph- in deed the sensation which far surpasses in significance the denunciation of the league of nations is the knowledge that Ambassador Harvey publicly disapproves of the plan for the world court formu lated by Elihu Root.

V. '"ti -jts - " - - - -- C .2 r - i plan called for the appointment of judges through the league of nations, indeed the-, court has been created as a part of thej league machinery and Elihu Root has said this seemed to him a wise idea. Everybody today was asking whether Ambassador Harvey intended to make his repudiation of tlie league so sweep ing as to include the court of interna tional law which Mr. Root helped frame. It is a fact that Mr. Harvey did not hes itate to express his disapproval of the Root plan because it was tied up to the league of nations but not until today has the Harding administration directly or indirectly been in the osifioii of repudi ating the Root plan. Did Ambassador Harvey speak his own views, or those of the Washington government Friends of Ambassador Harvey, especially those in the irreconcilable group, believe he has enly paraphrased President Harding's campaign speech. While it may be in discreet for a diplomat io representative of the I'nited States to take issue with the speeches made by a preceding presi dnt of the I'nited States, in which Amer ica's war aims were proclaimed as un selfish and based on humanitarian rea sons, nevertheless it is true that Mr. Harding as a senator took the position that the war against (Jermany was not so far as the I'nited States was con cerned a war "for humanity." but a war in defense of American rights which had been violated on the high seas. This was his view on the night he voted for n declaration of war with (Jermany. and his view in the last campaign. Ambassa dor Harvey will not get into hot water for that. The embarrassment arises from the fact that rekindles here the fires of partisanship. He was specifically in structed by Mr. Harding as a parting word that partisanship ended at the toast line but Ambassador Harvey feols that he is well lifted for the task of spokesman for the Harding administra tion, -lie lived at Marion many weeks last summer, ami wrote many parts of the Harding campaign speeches. The chances are that he might have. gone too Tar in expressing America's foreign pol icy, but he will not be rebuked ' for it. The man who will be unhappy about it will be Charles Evans Hughes, who has been trying to be especially cautions and discreet as he slowly evolved the main principles of the American foreign 1 icy. While Ambassador Harvey will not be reprimanded, it is a safe bet that he doesn't make another such siieoch in many months. 2G NAMES FOR N. Y.

A orpri cious spring and high cost of production kept the maple sugar crop in Vermont below normal this year.

Although the forest census shows that there are 10.IKf0.tMW) sugar maple trees in Vermont not more than .VttMMioO of them have ever been developed. 'litis year about l.r.tMI.IKM were tapped. The sugar and .syrup yield, it is estimated, will be less than r..lMN tons.

How so that it will run freely. r armors declare they were obliged to pay wages equal to the scale of a year ago and that other equipment used in harvesting showed no decrease in price.

"Other commodities are turn blinti: why not coal? Many n house holder on impiiring as- to the price is amazed to learn that this year's coal will cost him more than last year's.
