REASONS FOR FAILURE OF GENOA CONFERENCE
The Genoa Conference failed in its three main purposes. These
were: (l)To bring Russia hack into good standing among the na-|
lions so that other countries could help her to rebuild her iiuhis j
tries; (2) to tstablish more friendly relations with Germany in
order that all countries might co-operate for the good of Europe ;
(3) to adopt an agreement among the nations which would
provide against any war 0f aggression for ten years.
The first failed because the Russian delegates were not willing
to recognize and pay the old Russian debts and because the dele- j
gates of the other powers were not willing to promise a big loan |
to the Soviet government.
The second purpose, better relations with Germany was blocked
by the French refusal to discuss the question of reparations and;
Germany’s action in secretly making a separate treaty with Rus- j
sia while the other powers were trying to reach a common agree-!
ment. The ten-year truce was found to be impossible until the
Russian problem had been settled, for a peace agreement in Eu
rope which did not include Russia would he o' little value.
The new conference—to be wholly against Russia—will meet!
at the Hague, beginning June 15. If Russia and the rest of Eu-i
rope cannot come to an agreement then there is still hope for j
the ten-year truce and the Genoa Conference may not have been ;
entirely a failure.
At the final meeting Mr. I.lovd George summed up the situation, j
He said that the two systems—the capitalist system in western j
Europe and the communist system in Russia— are so different that
no conference could hope to make them agree on matters of prin
ciple. The commission which will meet at the Hague, must try:
to find a plan on which they can agree in practice. He added:
“Europe vvll help, but Russia must, in her dealings with Europe,
accept the code of honor, which is the inheritance that has come:
down to us through generations of hard working and honest
people and which has struck deep into the soil of the workl. * * * ;
And I do implore, as a friend of the Russian peace, as a friend I
of co-operation with Russia, as one who is in favor of going to
the rescue of those great and gallant and brave people, the Russian
delegation, when they, come to the Hague, not to go out of their way
to trample up,m these sentiments and principles which are deeply,
rooted in the very life of Europe."
Lloyd George also spoke of the recommendations worked out
by the various commissions of experts for bringing back healthful
conditions to Europe. The’financial experts had recommended
that t#e poorer nations stop printing bushels of paper money any
time that they seemed to need more, and "get hack to the gold
standard." Also that each nation carefully “balance its budget"
every year, so that it will not plan to spend more than it receives.
It was also advised that the central banks of the different coun
tries, through their representatives, should meet and keep in touch
with each other. This should tend to steady the demand for gold
in the different countries and so make the prices less variable.
SECRET RADIO MESSAGES PROMISED BY HAMMOND
A way lias been found to prevent radio receiving stations from
“listening in" on wireless telephone and telegraph messages in
tended for other stations, according lo John Hays Hammond, [r..
the inventor. Mr. Hammond declares that he has invented a
“comparatively simple" device which makes secret radio messages
Mr. Hammond says by means of his invention the same wave
can be made to earn- a number of messages at the same time.
' Moreover, a far greater number of stations will be able to use the
same wave-lengths than, at the present t'me. The invention will
greatly reduce interference from “static- as well as that from other
wireless stations, according to Mr. Hammond.
Tested By Government
The new invention has been tested by the United States Navy
am- War Departments and found to be a success, Mr. Hammond
During the war Mr. Hammond worked on the problem of wire
less control of torpedoes. His tireless inventions were looked
upon as so important that Congress gave the Treasury Department
authority to spend $750,000 to buy his patents for the Government
This appropriation was never used, however. It is said that th<
Navy Department has asked Congress to renew this appropriation.
It would be Used to buy the patents of Mr. Hammond's latest
WIN FIGHT FOR FREE CYANIDE
Nevada will profit more than any other state by the defeat in the
Senate of the proposed duty on cyanide. The mill in Nevada con
sume two and one half million pounds of cyanide each year and the
proposed tariff of ten per cent would have added $50,000 a year to the
cost of the commodity in this state. Tin fight has been wagered for
over a year and the western consumers won in the House, which put
cyanide on the free list. I he influential German corporations which
until recently controlled the manufacture of cyanide in this countrv
succeeded in getting a duty reported by the Senate committee and the
battle was carried to the floor where it was won bv the assistance of
the powerfu1 agricultural bloc. Senators Pittman and Senator Oddie
of Nevada, led the fight and offered strong arguments against thee

MINING LOOKING GOOD
The report*, of the week hold out highest hopes for the men who
dig their living and wealth from the wound.
ROUth canic tlle rtPort only a few davs ago that George
Wingfield had purchased property at Taylor's in the southern part of
the state and when he purchases property it is generally with the in
tention of rapidly developng it.
Only yesterday the news was given that ore assaying close to $100
per ton had been uncovered in the Savage mine of the'Middle Mines
group at Virginia City.
That virtually means that the Middle Mines rnav be worked on a
scale as big, if not bigger, than the plan in effect at'Gold Hill
Now the Mound House country is adding to the good news with
the report that rich silver ore is being found at Red Canvon and
there has already been considerable attention directed that wav.
The state will always have its ups and downs in a mining wav I
