AGREEMENT BLOW TO JAPAN Foreign Polity of How Fronoh Bov ornment Stated by Premier Poln oare—Irish Free State Formally Installed—Postmaster General Haya Announces Coming Resignation. By EDWARD W. PICKARD S TRONGLY backed by the British and Italian delegations to the Washington conference, Secretary Hnghes and his American colleagues last week pushed far toward comple tion of their plans for the establish ment and maintenance of a real ''open door" in China. In effect, It was a big week for China and a rather unpleas ant one for Japan. Mr. Hughes submitted to the Far Eastern committee a set of resolutions by which the powers In the conference, other than China, agree: "(a) Not to seek or to support their nationals in seeking any arrangement which might purport to establish In favor of their Interests any general superiority of rights with respect to commercial or economic development In any designated region of China; "(b) Not to seek or to support their nationals In seeking any such monop oly or preference as would deprive other nationals of the right of under taking any legitimate trade or industry In China or of participating with the Chinese government, or with any pro vincial government, In any category of public enterprise, or which by reason of its scope, duration, or geographical extent Is calculated to frustrate the practical application of the principle of equal opportunity." China, for its part, declares its "In tention of being guided by the same principles In dealing with applications for economic rights and privileges from governments and nationals of all foreign countries whether parties to that agreement or not. Provision is made for the establish ing of an International board to which (juestlons of compliance with the open door principle may be referred for in vestigation and report. As first draft ed, the resolutions made this applica ble to existing concessions. France ob jected to this and the Japanese, though accepting the plan "in princi ple," were plainly nervous and wor ried and asked for time to study the text. In the Interest of speedy action the objectionable clause was with drawn, and thereupon the plan was given unanimous approval by the committee. The Americans did not look on this as a defeat, for, under their construction of the resolutions, It will still be possible to bring before the International commission any open door question Involving existing con cessions, Including the privileges which Japan by her notorious 21 de mands forced China to concede In 1915. The Japanese maintain they got noth ing through those demands that vio lates the open door principle. Ambas sador Shidehara does not believe the board of reference plan la practicable, but finally accepted It. It really looks as though the com mercial open door in the Far East Is about to become, tn the words of Mr. Hughes, a fact Instead of a motto. In the latter part of the week the committee was considering the matter of the reformation of China's railway system. The British proposed that the powers undertake to abolish all trans portation discrimination In China, and the Americans suggested that China unify her railways under her own con trol "with such foreign financial and technical co-operation as may prove necessary." Some dispute, unknown to the public at this writing, held up final comple tion of the naval treaty. Apparently It Involved the question of fortifications, and members of the British and Jap 1 y> anese delegations blamed each other for the delay. It waa said the British wanted to limit the fortifications sta tus quo to the parts of the Pacific where Japan and the United States have neighboring possessions, and that they Insisted that in any event It could not affect Singapore, which Is their most Important naval base In the Far East. A LTHOUGH Poincare and Lloyd George exchanged honey-worded notes of esteem and assurance of cor dial desire to resume examination of the questions at Issue between their governments, the new French premier took a firm stand in bis ministerial declaration made to the chamber of deputies Wednesday. He said the government was determined to base Its foreign policy on the Versailles treaty, and was anxious to maintain and con solidate Its alliances. Germany, he Insisted, must make up Its mind to ful fill the obligations It undertook at Ver sailles. Before agreeing to take part In the Genoa conference, he said, France must have guarantees from the soviet government of Russia. In talk ing to correspondents, M. Poincare said he would not go to Genoa; that French business men might meet Ger man and Russian business men there, but that France desired that the Genoa conference should not be the means of Bolshevik propaganda In Europe. The Russians are very enthusiastic over the Genoa meet and already have announced the list of their delegates. It Is headed by Premier Lenin, whose place will be taken by Foreign Minis ter Tchiteherin if the chief cannot go; the other members are all prominent in the soviet government. Leon Trotzky, however, does not think the confer ence can be a success unless the Unit ed States participates and takes the lead. He adds that Russia favors gen eral disarmament, but It is skeptical of France. T HE soviet government Is not yet at war with Finland over the Karelian revolt, but hostilities seem not far off unless the Finns yield com pletely. They offered to have the af fair arbitrated, but this the Russians refused. the Internment, disarming and surren der to soviet Russia of all Karelian In surgents on Finnish soil, the surrender to Russia of tlielr arms, and an indem nity from Finland for all damages done to Russia through the Karelian revolt. Tchiteherin now demands N ACCORDANCE with the decision of the reparations commission, Ger many is paying $7,500,000 gold every ten days until further arrangements are made. The first payment was made on Wednesday. I T HE French were much aroused by a resolution Introduced In the United States senate by Medill Mc Cormick of Illinois. It calls on the State department for full information concerning the financial condition, the budgets and the amounts spent on mil itary establishments by European countries that owe money to America. There is a belief In France that the resolution was aimed at that country alone because of Its stand concerning its land forces and on the subject of submarines. There was no Indication that the resolution had the approval of the American administration, and It may be that in stirring up something of a row It has done all Mr. McCormick ever expected It would do. ORD FITZALAN, British viceroy of Ireland, on Tuesday formally turned over Dublin castle to the pro visional government of the Irish Free State, the official designation of which Is Rlaltas Sealabeach Na Helreann. The government for the present con sists of Michael Collins and seven as sociates. Griffith, who Is president of the Dali Eireann, believed that body should be kept separate from the new state organization and so declined to head the provisional government. As rapidly as Is practicable the British troops are being removed from the island, and as they leave there are many outbreaks by the Irreconcilable republicans. Collins and his col leagues are planning to send a commis sion to Canada to study the Dominion's form of government and draft a con stitution along Canadian lines. The Bank of Ireland has agreed to lend tbs new government a million pounds. L P OPE BENEDICT XV died rather unexpectedly Friday morning after a brief Illness which suddenly tie veloped into pneumonia. Until al most the last his physicians insist ed that the attack was not seri ous, and the passing of his holiness surprised a* well as shocked the en tire world. Benedict was born in 186-1 and was elected pope In 1914. He won general esteem by his wise courses and counsels as head of the Roman Catholic church and by his earnest and continuous efforts to restore peace and amity among the nations after the out break of the World war. Because a fatal outcome to his illness had not been looked for there has been no dis cussion yet as to his probable suc cessor. "C P OSTMASTER GENERAL HAYS has announced his retirement from the cabinet about March 4 for the pur pose of becoming the directing head of the new National Association of Mo tlon Picture Producers and Dlstrlbut era. President Harding, in regretfully accepting his resgtnatlon, expressed the opinion that Mr. Hays was about to take up a work of great public bene fit. It Is believed Hubert Work of Colorado, now first assistant, will suc ceed Mr. Hays as postmaster general with the understanding that he will re tire in the fall to make way for Sena tor New of Indiana in case the senator Is defeated for renomination or re-elec tlon. Mr. New's opponent In the Re publican primaries will be former Sen ator Albert Beveridge. N A report transmitted to the sen ate the federal trade commission charged that three of the largest to bacco manufacturing concerns in the country—the American, the P. Loril lard and the Liggett & Meyers compn nles—have engaged In conspiracies with many jobbers' asociatlons to keep up jobbers' prices. The commission promises prosecutions where the evi dence discloses violations of the law. The report says the jobbers' agreement became effective last September when it was learned that the commission's investigation was under way. three companies named were formerl. parts of the tobacco trust which wa dissolved by the Supreme court. I Tic W ITHOUT waiting to be asked the American government lm> intervened in the dispute betweei Chile and Peru over the Tacna-Aricii territory and the treaty of Ancon, and has Invited both countries to send delegates to Washington for a confer The invitations, sent In the ence. name of President Harding, say the American government has observed with pleasure that the negotiations be tween the two South American repub lies "seemed to forecast a settlement In conference of the difficulty Involv ing final sovereignty of the province: of Tacna and Arica. Recent dis patches Indicate this Is a rather opt i in istlc view of the situation, but It ina; be justified. T HROUGH Ambassador Richard Washburn Child and General Al len, at the head of a composite bat talion from the army of occupation, America on Wednesday paid tribute to the memory of Italy's "unknown sol dier," who Is burled In Rome. King Victor Emmanuel and all high govern ment officials, as well as the entin diplomatic corps, attended the Impress ive ceremony, which was witnessed by an Immense throng.

They are doing this because purebred hogs mature on about 70 per cent of the amount of feed re quired to mature common hogs, and because there is a market for pure breds when there is not for the others. One reason, or perhaps the prin cipal reason why they came to Bing ham county to spend their money is that we had a great fair here last fall and the newspapers all over the country told about the wonderful ex hibit of purebred swine, and men tioned the names of some of the own ers of prize winners. The breeders of purebred hogs in this locality have been doing a little advertising so people might know what they have, and many men de siring to get a start in purebred hogs have declined to pay the prices asked by the breeders. Now come the folks who really want purobreds and put up their money and the expense of shipment besides. That takes the hogs away from the local men who wanted them hut wanted so feeblv that they lose out. It takes wealth out of the county—a wealth of hogs —even ho it brings some ready money in. What ought to have hap pened was for our Bingham county farmers to buv these gelts and mul tiply that wealth here instead of let ting it go to some other state. Ifj that had been done, Bingham county would have had the gelts and the money too. Harrison McKnight recently ship ped in a nurebred sow from Boise, by express, paying for express alone, the price of a 200-pound hog of the common kind. Eric Sundquist returned the last of the week from a trip to the Den ver stock show where he went to study the advantages of raising pure bred stuff, and to see what he could learn for himself and his neighbors about how to get Into the game, how to stay in and how to forge ahead. Remarkable Tree. The Kentucky coffee tree is one nf the most remarkable of our American forest trees, says the American For estry Magazine. It may grow to be fully 100 feet in height; nnd, although it is to be found over a good part of eastern United States, It Is one of the very rarest of our forest trees. Chicks Coming on in the Queen Colony Brooder Six hundred to twelve hundred chicks kept warm and toasty twenty-four hours a day; no chance to chill or get too warm or to get bad air, smoke or gas. The Queen Colony Brooder has the automatic check and draft, and asbestos linings to make it perfectly safe. If it starts to cool, a metal plate shrinks and closes the check and opens the draft. As the heat increases to the regulation point, the plate ex pands with the heat and it opens the check and closes the draft. It works on that way day and night, heat and cold keeping the proper balance and the chicks al ways warm and cosy grow strong and healthy. No chills, no sweats, no colds, but chicks happy and ac tive and bigger every day. That Is why the Queen is better to use than others.
