Washington Conference Goes
Far toward Establishing Real
Open Door in China.
Foreign Polity of How Fronoh Bov
ornment Stated by Premier Poln
oare—Irish Free State Formally
Installed—Postmaster General
Haya Announces Coming
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
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
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
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

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.
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.
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
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

The farm bureau of Box Elder
county, Utah, is buying a carload of
purebred Duroc Jersey gelts from
breeders In this county, and paying
from four to five times as much as
they would need to pay for common
gelts. 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
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.

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

Is why the Queen is better to use
than others.
