By Frederick 9. Haakia. The fact that Ireland has finally been given the status of a separate political entity virtually independent of the rule of Great Britain has a re flection in the United States going far beyond the casual sympathies of this man for Ireland and that man for England. As a matter of fact, although there Is not much talk of it here and lit tle agitation except in sporadic out bursts, the American Government has several little Irelands of its own on its hands and its conscience. Some day these outbursts may flare up to the proportion of the Irish situation, which has kept British statesmen awake for nights for many years. Demonstrations of sympathy with the Irish cause on the part of Ameri cans have resulted in no little bitter ness on the part of the English. The feeling entertained by thousands of Englishmen was that the question of Ireland was one purely between England and Ireland, and that, frankly, It was none of the business of these Americans who. seemed so deeply concerned about the issue. These resentful Englishmen point ed out that the American Government holds island possessions having no real tie with the central government, and that it would be bitterly resented by Americans if they should be a lot of agitation in England for giving the Philllpplnes independence, for in stance. And these same Philippine islands remain a difficulty which may in crease trouble for the American ad ministrators as time goes on. Ac quired less than 26 years ago, a bit ter guerilla warfare went on for a long time before the more warlike tribes were brought to books and ac cepted American Government. The islands have representation in the House of Representatives, there be two delegates who have every privi lege except that of voting. In the little more of two decades of the clviliting influence of American rule, parties have sprung up in this distance group of islands demanding either complete independence or very liberal home rule. Investigations have been made of conditions time and again, but always It has been found to be unwise to grant this re quest. JAPAN 18 FACTOR The real trouble with giving up the Philippines, although It Is seldom given expression publicly, is its near ness to Japan and its value as a mili tary base to the United States. The Japanese population ot the principal islands Is large and is growing con stantly. In the distant future, should war come between the Orient and the Occident, the Philippines would be of tremendous advantage to the coun try in possession and able to use its main harbors and naval bases. The Hawaiian islands, lying be tween America and the Philllppines, belong to the United States. For eign critics have contended that America has no moral right to have these Islands. However, the true Hawaiian race is dwindling and dying out, and there is no agitation for freedom of these islands from any fancied American "yoke.” As a mat ter of fact, these islands seem per fectly contented and happy to remain a part of the United States, and no doubt will so continue. In the Atlantic ocean, America Is meeting with troubles from Island possessions. Only recently the news papers have been filled with charges and countercharges and defenses of courses of action concerning the gov ernment of the Island of Porto Rico. E. Mount Retly, governor ol the terri tory, and^hat is its official status as a part of the United States—has Been the storm center of all this uproar. The charges came from native poli ticians. The Porto Rican delegate In Congress was bitter In his denuncia tion of the conduct of the governor. HARDING BACKS KKLLY The result of all this was that Gov ernor Rally came to Washington and laid the whole case before President Harding. The President promptly sent Governor Relly back to hts post, and by this action backed him up completely. There Is reason to be lieve that underneath all of the dis satisfaction with the present gover nor was the fact that he lopped off appropriations for salaries for sine cures which have been sources of in come to politically prominent natives for some time. Much ot the criticism was disguised, however, under a clamor for making the Island an In dependent nation. Not only In outright possessions, but In smaller republics la which the United States must of necessity take a hand In maintaining law and order, done the germ of trouble lie. America &ad to take a hand In straightening out the situations wkleh have arisen in Santo Domingo and in Haiti. These nagro republics from time to time have upheavals which make neces sary a bit of quieting down and paci fying by the long arm of the Ameri can Government. In the short historical lives of these island republics it has been a rare thing for a president to to sur vive his term of office or to come to his death from natural causes. One of them was torn to pieces by wild horses. It Is not unknown for the legations of foreign powers to bo attacked. Revolutions abound. In the interior, while denials will be made of It, savagery often comes to light, and there is no doubt of the survival of voodooism and Its awful rites. The natives often are bitter ly resentful of American intervention to restore order, but the American Government policy is that this coun try must be responsible for the good conduct of Its smaller and less en lightened island neighbors not far off the Atlantic coastline. Cuba was nursed along by the American Government until strong enough to stand alone. In spite of everything that was done for Cuba, from the time it was freed from Span ish rule until America withdrew from the Island, there was always a bitter ly anti-American party which was not lacking in demonstrations of its feel ing. THE CARE OF PAXAMA The cue of Panama la another In point. The American Government had a great deal to do with the suc cessful effort of this little republic to feee Itself from Colombia, of which country It wu forriftrly a province. The successful revolution at the be ginning of this century wu the lut of about 60 such efforts. America quickly recognised the new republic, and the rest of the world followed her lead. Prom the new government America purchued the canal rights which she had been trying to get from Colombia for a long time. This concession includes a ten-mile strip of land across the Isthmus bordering the great canal and the right to forti fy the canal. On the other hand, she must defend the cities of Colon and Panama, at either end of the canal and lying within the ten-mile strip. I These cities are not American terri tory, however, a particular exception having been made of them. Naturally American Influence Is strong in these cities, particularly in Panama City, the capital, and there, too, strong opposition to American "Interference" has developed. Por getting the American responsibility for Panama being free at all, there have been outbursts of this feeling from time to time. In all of these troubles the policy has been to smooth and calm down the excitable natives and discuss the troubles openly as little u possible. For underlying everything else in nearly every one of these cases is the always troublesome color question and the fact that arguments avail lit tle or nothing in bringing races to re gard each other with true fraternal affection. WIRED WIRELESS IS LATEST FOR RADIO Washington, March 24.—A new development in radio, by which mus ic, news, lectures and other forms of speech can be received by attaching the usual receiving Instrument to the electric lamp and eliminating the an tennae, as well as relieving the con gestion of wireless broadcasting In the air, was announced to-day by Ma jor General Squler, Ju Inventor and chief signal corps officer of the army. The first public demonstration of the new “wired wireless" was held In the signal corps headquarters to-day. The whole operation of Installing the device for receiving consisted merely of removing a bulb from a lamp on General Squier's desk and Inserting the receiving plug into the socket. The broadcasting station, It was ex plained, was connected with the light ing circuit through a lamp receiver at another point. The invention is believed by signal corps officers to offer a great utility to owners of electrio lamps every where. and. the general said, could bring, to every hoaae where there is an ejfctrlc lighting system the con certs which previously have been broadcasted through the air and re ceived through the antennae. Broadcasting over great distances by use of the invention la believed to be possible, but that use has not been attempted as yet. The Idea was con ceived leas than a week ago. General Squler said. HD1DIG PROSPECTOR STORY Huy stories have been toM to Il lustrate the propenalty of the old school prospector to follow ap report ed strikes which are more or lesa tree. The prospector necessarily has imagination, els* he would not be wandering the deserts and mountain rsages in search for riches; and his Imagination Is apt to enlarge reports which reach him of discoveries made by others. The following story, qld as the hills, was published recently In the San Francisco Chronicle as re lated by John C. Benson, mine owner of Angels Camp, California. “A prospector died, as prospectors will and found himself outside the pearly gates of heaven,” said Ben son. ”St. Peter let him inside after a recital of the many hardships he had undergone in life. "The golden city was too much of a lure for the old prospector and In a short time he had covered the en tire city with his location notices. He tore up the streets digging glory holes, sank shafts and cut drifts in every possible place. "St. Peter was in a quandry as to how to get rid of him when the sec ond prospector came to the gate. At first, St. Peter denied the new-comer admittance, saying: ‘We have one prospector with us now and he has caused us so much trouble with his mining activities that goodness only knows what will happen if two of you come In here. ’ “The new-comer assured St. Peter that he would rid heaven of the ob noxious presence of the first prospee ton if only he were allowed to speak with him, and his importuniags final ly gained him admittance. As soon as the miner was within the gates, he sought out the trouble-maker and whispered a few words in his ear. “At once he started to pack up his tools and within an hour, had passed out of the gate. St. Peter sought out the new arrival and besought him to tell what magic words he had whisp ered to his friend. ‘ “ ‘Why, I told him I had heard of a good strike down in hell and he has gone to find out about it,” was the reply. “Things went along smoothly in heaven for several days but the sec ond prospector conld not stand the sight of so much gold and in his turn, staked out the golden city. But after a while he seemed to lose in terest in his work and finally packed up his tools and wended his way to the gate. “ ‘Whither are you bound?’ asked' St. Peter. “ ‘Well, replied the prospector, ‘I just thought I would go on down to hell. You see there might be some truth in that story of a big strike down there.” ’ — SPEEDY DIVORCES IS RULE AT RENO Iteno, Nevada, March 18. — That Nevada's divorce law Is flexible has been demonstrated in the county here the last few days. To the joy of di vorce seekers, several have been per mitted to file suits in the mornings and to obtain decrees in the after noons. This rapid settlement of mar ital troubles has been permitted in an effort to clear the calendars for more important cases, according to attor neys. Hearing of testimony in di vorce courts here usually has taken place ten days after filing. Fried chicken can be so expensive aa to make Unger bowls obsolete.

The bears have unrolled their bodies from the sleeping ball shape and are out to predict an early Spring. Squirrels have started building their nests, with dead leaves and twigs. A long. Dad, after-the-war Winter Is about over. The snakes in the zoo do not have iheir regular Winter sleep. The keepers want them to amuse the pub lic, so the cages are kept at tropical heat. The snakes that hibernate only when they feel the cold miss the : long nap—and they live only half as long as snakes should live. Tell that j to your son who neglects regular , sleep. The caged bears are puzzled, for I when free they begin to hibernate only as food disappears. Ages ago I they learned to sleep all Winter to I avoid starving all Winter, (n their j bear pit food appears regularly, j When the snow falls they wonder at food and snow combined—then old habit conquers. They enter the dark bear den and go to sleep anyhow, nose between their paws, body rolled up, heart slowed down, life almost suspended. In the forest the snow covers their lair. Their faint breatn makes a hole in the snow—they breathe enough and live. Like the bears. Wall street seems to be coming to life. “Regular mon ey" for speculation could be borrowed ! the other day for 3 per cent. “Out- j side money" was lent at 2 % per cent. The dear little lambs have grown a new crop of wool and soon will be eagerly crowding to the shearer. “As a sheep before her shearers Is dumb.” Dumb Is the right word. - ' i The Federal Reserve banks have cut down their loans three-quarters in the last year. Last week loans outstanding were $362,662,000. Same week a year ago, $1,224,533,000. A year ago New York’s Federal Re serve alone carried as big loans, with in eleven millions, as the combined loans of the entire Federal Reserve system this year. These figures mean the squeezing of many business con cerns. They call it “good finance.” It is about as good as cutting off the supply of water from growing crops.

INSPECTS BOULDER CANYON PROJECT; Las Vegas, Nevada, March IS.— The clans from the lands of sage brush, cactus, sago lllv and poppy are here to-day to welcome Herbert Hoover. Governor Boyle met the of ficial party at Barstow. Hoover has the same smile he had la Goldfield in 1906 and he holds his cigar tha same. He grasped hands here with men whom he met in the Korea mines and who have been driven from the Rns-1 sian gold fields by the red beards. Governor Boyle is attended by his official Colorado river commission staff, including Messrs. Scrugham. Squires, Syphus and Clark. All are old-timers and well equipped with the necessary information. HOOVER FAVORS DAM Governor Campbell and staff head the Hoover party. Hoover recom mended the building of the Boulder dam first. He said In Phoenix last night: 0 “Only one witness has contended for the priority of power over usages for the furtherance of agriculture. The many who have thus agreed have struck the keynote of American thought. They would rather have homes out here in the West than re produce congested districts in crowd ed cities.” When Nevada was carved from Utah the eastern side of Clark Coun ty and the western part of Mojave County, Arizona, was the Colorado river basin, and the Boulder canyon is the big bend in that river. HEIGHT OF DAM The top of the propsed dam, when built, will be fifty feet lower than the streets of Las Vegas. Therefore all agricultural benefits excepting pump ing will be in Arizona and California. It will mean the spending of $60, 000,000 in Las Vegas and develop ment of over 900,000 horsepower, ten times greater than Niagara Falls.

W. J. HOOPER. Assessor •t Baraka County, Nevada. Colorado river, where many Urea have beea lost, between canyon walls 2000 test high, forty miles from all direct communication with the out side world. With Mrs. Hoover, and Government officials, governors of Arizona and Nevada, and commis sioners from seven Southwestern. States, Hoover, as chairman of the Colorado river commission, started on an inspection tour of the Boulder canyon dam project. BEE FAMOUS MINE A caravan of forty automobiles took the party to the river through one of the most picturesque sections of the West, miles down a miniature grand canyon, with multi-colored mountains rising on each side of the road. The party inspected the fam ous Francis Marion (Borax) Smith borax mine on the route, where an entire mountain of borax Is being ex cavated and hauled to distant rail roads on motor trucks. DAM TO COST $45,000,000 Inspection of the dam site was made on a reclamation service boat. Diamond drilling outfits on flat boats were strung across the river. Bed rock was indicated at 140 feet. Tentative plans for the Boulder canyon dam places the height at 600 feet from the river bed, costing be tween $45,000,000 and $60,000,000. It Is proposed to be 200 feet wide at the bottom and a thousand feet wide at the top, sufficient to hold twelve years’ average flow of the Colorado river, and backing the water eighty miles up river into the huge reser voir.
