(Special Despatch to The Reformer.)
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

modification of the provision of the
league so as to Mjuarc with American de
sires. 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. The world court

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

MONTPELIER. May 21. A orpri
cious spring and high cost of production
kept the maple sugar crop in Vermont
below normal this year. This is the sum
maty of reports to larger dealers I.r-rr
from sugar farmers throughout :h T'e.
There will be no .shortage of t'-e taogy
sweet, however, they say, as there was a
considerable surplus from 1020.
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.
Weather conditions were important
fac tors in the decrease, as the unusually
warm .periods' of early spring were not'
temyefed by the frosty nights that are!
neitled to contract and expand the sap!
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.

"Minv consumers (of anthracite, dis

Dr. Smith. "Other commodities are turn

amazed to learn that this year's coal will
cost him more than last year's.
"He forgets, perhaps, ihat the last in

mar tne awaru oi ine amnracuc commis

chased on the old wage rate,"
In fact, all building materials in this line are from
25 per cent to 50 per cent less, and, as all orders we arc
placing now are booked with a guarantee of price to July
