The new policy of ,tne Govern
ment to .assign lands individually
to the Indian population of - the
United States and thus to break up
the old Indian reservation system,
gives rise to a problem of race
amalgamation which the Episcopal
Church in its Nation-Wide Cam
paign is facing as an immediate
The Episcopal Church has long
been ministering to the Indian pop
ulation of the country in its isolated
but rather compact groups, due
with thej iminent scattering of the
Indians among the white popula
tion, comes a still more pressing
demand, a demand which the
Church will endeavor immediately
to meet. Medical aid, schools, re
ligious instruction and vocational
training are all means to the end
of making thef Indian ready for
modern Christian society, accord
ing to the vast program of activities
as laid down by the -preliminary
survey of the Nation-Wide Cam

No. 1 Continued From
upon what 'people want now and what
they will want next summer and at th
time of the elections, November, 1920.
Both parties as a rule favor avoiding !
the making Of a clear cut political
Issue out of the peace treaty and the
league of nations, at least for the pres
ent, because it has been found impos
sible up to this time to determine what
the people think about it and may
think a year hence.
Public opinion is undergoing such
rapid chaiges regarding public poli
cies that the members of the Repub
lican national committee are urging
that no attempt be made at the meet
ing next week to place the party on
record respecting issues and policies
fearing that issues which appear al
luring now may be unpopular in a
few months. They favor, simply set
ting the place and date for the con
vention and letting matters of policy
go over until later.
Only the members of the senate
who have taken a leading part in the
constant consideration of the peace
treaty for the past six months and
have had their hearts and souls wrap
ped up in it are insisting that their
party take its position on the peace
treaty as the foremost party principle
in the next campaign.
Senator Lodge, who led the fight
against the treaty for the Republicans,
and Senator Hitchcock, leading advo
cate of the treaty for the Democrats.
are each insisting that the great masses
of the people share their views and will
send down to overwhelming defeat any
party that holds contrary opinions.
Senator Borah, one of the leaders of
the "irreconcilibles," feels so strongly
about the matter that he threatens to
quit the Republican party unless it
takes a stand against the treaty.
The Democratic national committee
will have an advantage in meeting one
month after the Republicans have had
their confab in Washington. The
Democrats will know by January 8,
their meeting date, how matters stand
with respect to the peace treaty and
the league of nations in the new ses
sion of the senate. They will also
know whether .the Republicans have
taken up the treaty issue or side
stepped it. They can then arrange
" their own program to meet the steps
taken by the Republicans.
A dozen Republicans are expected to
announce their candidacy in. the next
eix weeks. An equal number of Demo
crats would like to announce : if they
could be sure President "Wilson will
not be a candidate.

Omsk, Dec. 7. Unification of the
various kinds of paper money which
have been issued by the several gov
ernments opposed to the Bolshevik!,
is advised by Finance Minister De
rubles in paper money, up to Septem
ber 1, 1919. These are not credit notes
but treasury obligations, and therefore
M. De Hoyer considered them to be
of secondary . value. They are poorly
printed and have been so cleverly
counterfeited that even the state bank
itself cannot distinguish the real from
the false. For this reason, said M.
De Hoyer, the Romanoff currency
issue is valued four times higher than
that of the all-Russian government.
The finance minister said that the
government of the volunteer - army
(General Denikine's) had issued 3,300,
000,000 rubles in bills from, the Rostoff
office of the state bank. In south
Russia there are 45,000,000 rubles of
Crimean paper money. The northern
(Archangel) government has issued
notes to the value of 130,000,000 rubles
and there are also obligations of the
so-called confidence loan of 70,000,000
The minister said that the American
Banknote Company has now at last
handed over to the Russian govern
ment 1,500,000,000 rubles of paper
money. As soon as possible this would
be sent to South Russia, but the min
ister declared it would be impossible
.v uigainic uuuicauon wi j currency
before January 1. 1920. A unification
of the budgets of all these various
governments would also have to be
arranged, he said.
"As the armies move forward the
question will arise as to what to do
with all the money in Soviet Russia,
amounting to '100,000,000,000 to 200,
000.000,000 rubles, a debt which the
Russian government cannot take uponJ
itself," said M. De Hoyer. Tt will be
necessary to consider what is to be
the comparative rate between our bills
and those of Soviet Russia."
The government will. have to nego
tiate loans bothat home and abroad
to meet the demands now being made-
on the exchanges, Mr. De Hoyer con
tinued. English and ' Japanese banks
have already been approached on the
subject. Plans for an Internal loan, to
take the form "of a lottery, are already
In hand. The tickets and obligations
have been received from America.
This loan will be for 2,000.000,000 rubles
to be put out In 200,000,000 -issues at
two month intervals "if the Bolshe
vik! are pushed back to the Urals."
The prizes are to be paid In American
printed notes at the rate of 100 rubles
for every 300 or 400 rubles of treas-
