Kluejarkets and marines from the warship Comus hare been landed here. British troops. Including, cavalry! arrived here from Bangalore Sunday and proceeded to the disturbed area. Numerous refugees who have arrlv ed here from the Ernad district relate pitiful tales of torture and looting. It appears the rebels mVe deserted Ta. rmr and other places and have taken to the hl!l. London Reports Monday from the revolutionary area of Malnbar, Brit. Mi India, Indicating that British troops and cavalry bad arrived there, fended to confirm the belief In London th.it the uprisliia would be confined to this area, although none here would deny the seriousness of the situation or Its potentialities for spreading. The trouhle in Malabar arises, it is stated, primarily from religions fana 'Iclsm and from the intense hatred of ihe Moplahs, or Mohannnedans of Arab descent, for Europeans and Hin dtts. Of politics and home rule they know nothing, as they virtually are bar barians, but the religions touch will always stir them to bloodshed as they live mainly for their religion and are willin:: to die for it. Self-torture is riot uncommon among the Moplahs hi the hope that they will thus arrive in heaven, and they believe thnt death on the battlefield Is the sure road to a happy hereafter. Close observers here of Indian af. fairs express the belief that the up-, rising also in part due to the wide-' spread propaganda of the native In d'nti nationalists. To this agitation has been added reports of great wrongs done Turkey and the Culiph at by the treaty of Sevres. The situation for isolated Europeans and Hindus in the Malahar region is irrnve. as the Moplahs In the past have halted at nothing in their frenzied hatred. At the time -of the projected uprising In the Punjnb at the out. bre-ik of bte war some of the most eld blooded documents were Issued telilng how Europeans were to be ex terminated to the Inst person. The equipment of the Moplahs for nchring consists largely of two edged swords, extremely heavy and sharp as razors, and catapults with a sprink ling of antiquated muzzle loading rif 'es. Tt Is reported, however, that they ohfeined considerable arms and am munition in recent looting and through the treacherv of some of the native police and former native soldiers In the British army. A preen emblem has been hoisted at Tallinn. Nearly a million Moplahs are said to be hack of the "home rule" movement. Martial law has been dec lared throughout the affected area.

TTashlngton Under normal con litions, the session of congress Just ad lourned would be called "The Farmers' Congress." If the farmer legislation had been overshadowed by taxation md tlie tariff, it would he realized that nore measures demanded by the farm. jrs and presumed to be In their Inter ests have been passed since April than n probably any other five months of rongress in history. The passage of the bill regulating jrnln exchanges In an answer to a de nand the west has been making for wenty years a demand which In the eginnlrig was regarded as grotesquely radical. On the same day that Presi ient Harding signed the bill for the regulating of grain exchanges he sign.' d also tlie 1)111 regulating tbe puckers.' fTiIs, too, Is the answer 1o aT agltution :hat began a generation ago. If these two bills alone had been Mused during Roosevelt's time, when :ho agitation for them was compara :ively new and loudly Insistent, they .vould have been regarded as some :hing epoch-making. It Is true that lelther the grain exchange regulation )iil nor the packer control bill Is In ihe extreme form originally demanded )y their proponents. Nevertheless, hey are strong bills, and from now on, n effect, the secretary of agriculture ias the power to scrutinize the bus! less operations of gra'n brokers and Ltackers, to review their actions, and to regulate them subject to appeal to t commission. This extension of government reeu- lation to grain exchanges and the sacking houses Is analogous to the es- :ablishmerit, a generation aao, of the nterstate commerce commission to regulate the rallrdads. If the Interests if the country were not so Intent on the German treaty and on taxation and he tnrifT, this striking expansion of the government's regulatory nower would get an attention in proportion to its significance. Incidentally, it is a marked extension of government into lu dness at a time when an administra tion slogan Is "Less government In business." On tlie same day that these two reg ulatory measures were signed hy the president, congress passed the bill vvhi.tr ptlivldes that government credit and government money shall be used, through the agency of tbe War Fin .nce corporation, to aid bankers and 'ifhers carrying agricultural commodit ies, and to facilitate new loans on those commodities, ns well as to ex tend old loans. Here, too, the bill as nnssed !s short of the original demand of the farmers, which was that the goveni'iio-it should loan money direct to the farmers on their grain, studs and other commod't'es. ' Th"se .measures reflect the fact thnt the farmer !s the strongest factor In ihe present congfss and Is likely to continue to be so during the remain, tier of the Harding administration. SOLDIERS' BOIIUS fJAy BE DEBAIED LEGION CHALLENGES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE OF THE U. S. TO DISCUSS BILL Series of Dceatea Proposed as Meant f Putting Matter Squarely Be fore People of Nation Says uegion Leaders , Waahinnon There may be a scries f Joint debates throughout the coun. try on ttw soldiers tonus bill between officials of he American Legion and the Chamber of Commerce of the I'nited States. In an open letter to the cha tuner of commerce Sunday the legion, through Its tatlonal legislative committee, challenged that body to send its officials and representatives to meet legion officials 'in any elty In the country or In every city In tb country where there Is a hall avatU able and in audience Interested." MTou say that the adjusted conipen. nation or bonus hill Is not generally understood." says the legion challen ger. The American Legion Is willing and anxious fo do Its share In making It understood and to abide by the con sequences. Is the Chamber of Com merce of the United States like-minded or ia It determined to continue Its pussyfooting campaign of pamphle teering?". Explaining why the legion was ask ing the chamber of commerce to take part In a nation-wide Joint debate ou adjusted compensation, or a bonus for veterans of the world war, John Thom as Taylor, vice chnlarman of the na tional legislative committee of the le gion, said Sunday: "The Chamber of Commerce of the United States, through resolutions adopted at Ms last annual convention at Atlantic City, April 27-29, went on record as in favor of "such construc tive meusures as mny be directly cal culated to enable ex-scrvlee men to cultivate the soil, build homes, or ob tain vocational education, htit as op posed to 'a ehnsh bonus.' Since that . time Its publicity bureau here In Washington has been bombarding the country with hand hills and pamph lets attacking the adjusted coinpen. nation or bonus bill now pending in congress. "UcpresenMng, or supposedly repre senting big business, the chamber of commerce has ma le itself spokesman for not only the opposition to th cash payment feature of the bill, hut to all other features of It, including even those features which the nation al convention expressly approved. "Tt Is therefore, for the purpose of carrying the issue to the country, for it to decide whether the ex-serrlce men or the Chamber of Commerce of the United States Is right, that the American Legion has challenged of ficials of the chamber to a series of Joint debates throughout the country. PI tiles'- nsread of pitiful publicity we ask the chamber of commerce to throw on the issue." .
