WILL THE PEOPLE REALIZE IT In his front porch address to the Chicago Cubs yesterday Sena tor Harding was reported to have drawn an analogy between base ball and government by stating "you cannot win a game with a one-man team." True, and you can't play at government with a "manager" hog tied and directed by a senatorial cabal. 00 ONLY ASK AMERICA TO PLAY FAIR WITH WORLD Europe is still unsettled and hoping the United States will play fair with the rest of the world, according to Brig.-Gen. John M. T. Finney, who has just returned to Baltimore from the inter-allied sur gical conference at Paris. Dr. Finney was the chief consulting sur geon for the American expeditionary forces during the war. He de clares it is "a sin and a shame that America has put herself in the position of breaking faith with her allies." Referring to America's leadership in establishing a concord of peace, Gen. Finney said : "The Europeans cannot understand the position America has taken and, indeed, there was little that could be said by way of ex planation. America is placed on the defensive without much of a defense." Off HOOVER'S PAPER ON HARDING'S FOREIGN POLICY The deliverance on the subject of a right foreign policy for the nation by the Republican candidate yesterday, so far as it is specific, reflects the pressure under which he has been since his speech of acceptance. Some moditications have been made and are stated in a way to indicate clearly the radical divisions of the party on the is sue and his ditTiculty in reconciling tlictu. So far as there is any distinct outline of personal policy with respect to our co-operation with other nations it is found in the por tion of the address dealing with the part that a vivified and re-enforced Hague tribunal may have in serving as the instrument by which international disputes may be settled and peace preserved; and it is to be noted that as his discussion of this detail closes Sen ator Harding concedes that there is something in the league covenant that might well be salvaged and fused with a Hague tribunal plan with "teeth in it.'' Inasmuch as the plan which Mr. Root has just aided in working out is distinctly the product of a special commission of the league and can only gain validity by action of the council to which the commission will report formally in late November, it is worth not ing that the plan as finally framed by the commission calls for com pulsory adjudication of certain cases coming before it, and does lessen the claim of sovereignty that the United States or any other nation may assert. Even Mr. Root's plan takes us into European and Asiatic disputes, albeit judicially; in which case it is puerile to continue to talk either about isolation or an "Americanized" league or association of nations. A world-court will be an important organ of the coming "gov erned world," but it cannot function without a world legislature defining international law and a world-executive enforcing judicial interpretations of that law; and to argue otherwise is to evade the logic of political science. A court and a mere "conference" cannot function effectively. Senator Harding's intimation that if he is elected in November he will forthwith call a national conference of men (and why not women, also?) of all parties and all walks of life to formulate an alternative policy to the league plan adopted at Paris which may be presented to the powers already in the league, has the merit of novelty. Nice question of choice of participants would enter in. Even if the recommendations of the conference suited Mr. Harding they might not please Mr. Cox. assuming his election. And then there is the senate to be considered, with its coming composition as yet unknown, and its jealous guarding of its special rights as a framcr of national foreign policy irrespective of the popular will. While in the background is the haunting question as to whether the powers already in the league will care to reconstruct it radically even for the sake of our adherence. Mr. Harding has faith that they will. Possibly they may prefer to have us co-operate in perfecting the plan already framed", as Mr. Root a plain citizen but expert jurist has done, rather than sit at our feet as the all-wise, all-powerful dictator. They would be quite human if they took this attitude. Washington Herald. AMERICAN TRADE WITH CHINA From the report of the statistical secretary of the inspectorate general of customs of China it appears the United States now con trols about one-sixth of the export and import trade in China. The foreign trade of 1911) aggregated 1,277,807,092 tael (a tael is worth about $l.f0 under the present price of silver). The im ports were 646,997,81 taels value, and the exports 6:50,209,411. One paragraph of the report says: "Largely owing to the effects of the war, but partly, of course, to natural causes, the direction of China's overseas trade will be found to have swung considerably from its old lines in favor of America, whose direct trade with China apart from Hongkon" was valued here at 211,000,000 taels in 1919, against 72.000,000 in 1913. Imports from America were valued at 110,000,0000 and ex- yoriH, ai momeni oi sir.pment, at lui,uHj,uuo thus disclosing a bal ance of 9,000,000 taels in favor of America. This is a complete reversal of the figures of previous years, which had always shown a balance in China's favor, and completely disposes, I may add. of me generally aceepieu explanation or the huge shipments to China by America of rold and silver, pven if wo wort.

Ampricnn Legion Weekly. no "The Republican proposal (a separate peace with German means dishonor, world confusion and delay. It would keen rm in permanent company with Germany, Russia, Turkey and Mexico. It would entail, in the ultimate, more real injury than the war itself." Governor Cox in his speech of acceptance. "The further he goes along, the plainer Mr. Harding makes it that if elected he will be just the kind of a president the senatorial cabal needs in its business." St. Louis Post-Dispatch. NAT GOODWIN'S FINANCES Nat Goodwin was a "tandem polygamist." He had had five wives and was planning to take unto himself a sixth when he died. Living he posed as rich and shrewd speculator in stocks. It is now formally announced by the administrator of his estate that he left more debts than assets and that his choice of mining stocks had been rash and credulous. His career as a whole is not one to .sing paeans about; yet there are good critics who claim that he had it in him to be the greatest actor of comedy the country ever had, and that on occasion he did memorable work in this field. His failure to be what he might have been was due to weakness of will and not to limitations of mind. A QUESTION FOR MR.
