REGULATE MANDATES United States, as Contributor to Vic tory in World War, Seeks to Secure Voice for All Nations, 1 Whether in League or Not. Washington. Equal opportunities for citizens of all allied and associated powers, whether members of the league of nations or not, in former enemy territories to be administered by the Hied governments under mandates is insisted upon in a note dispatched by the state department to the council of the league, now in session at Paris. Ambassador Wallace presented- the note. Its text was withheld, but state department officials described it as be ing virtually identical with the one on the same subject sent to the British government last November by Secre tary Colby. U. S. "Contributed to Victory." That note was couched in firm lan guage. In it Mr. Colby took issue witli the British position that mandate agreements and treaties were to be considered only by states members of the league and declared the United States as a contributor to the common victory in the world war would not consider "any of the associated powers, the smallest not less than itself, de barred from participation in the rights and privileges secured under the mandates provided in the treaties of peace." The Point at Issue. Action by the council on the man dates at the present session had been expected, and it was explained that it was on this account that the present administration decided to present its arguments direct to the council despite the fact that only a little more than two weeks remain before the new ad ministration will come into power. It was said this would give the Harding administration time in which to study the question and come to a decision as to its policy with regard to mandates. The principal point at issue between the United States and Great Britain is the so-called San Remo agreement be tween Great Britain and France far the development of oil resources' in the mandate territories in the hear east. Under-Secretary Davis of the state department lias said that leading Re publican senators expected to have a voice in shaping policies of the new administration, have approved the po sition taken by the state department. JAP SENTRY GETS 30 DAYS Soldier Who Shot Lieutenant Langdon Sentenced in Siberia. Washington.—Regret on the part of the Japanese government over the fatal shooting of Lieutenant W. H. Langdon, an American naval officer, at Vladivostok early in January, is reiterated in the reply of that govern ment to the note from the United States government. The hope was expressed by the Japanese government "that the gov ernment of the United States will fully appreciate the sincere spirit in which the Japanese government has acted in dealing with this most unfortunate in cident." The sentry was found guilty of de ception in his testimony as to the cir cumstances of the fatality and for this has been sentenced to confinement for 30 days. LABOR MAY SEND A DEPOSIT International Union Heads Consider $6,000,000 Deposit in Bank of N. O. Washington.—Approval has been given by international labor union heads and their nttorne.vs to a tenta tivetdraft of a bill to legalize the right of labor unions to organize all fields of industry despite individual con tracts between employers and em ployes prohibiting union membership. The bill, designed to offset the effect of the United States supreme court decision in the Hitchman Coal and Coke company case upholding the validity of these individual contracts, will be submitted at once to the ex ecutive council of the American Fed eration of Labor for final approval. An important matter before the council, it was learned, was a request from the Nonpartisan league that the federation place $6,000,000 of its funds in the state bank in North Dakota. No decision was reached by the council in regard to the matter during the first two days. Railroad Earnings Light. Washington.—Net railroad earnings totaled $17,037,000 during December, which was at an annual rate of. 1.17 per cent on property value, according to a statement just issued by the Association of Railway Executives, based on reports of the principal roads of the country to the interstate commerce commission. Earnings dur ing the month, the statement said, were $69,821,000 less,than tiie six per cent expected under the rate advance of last August. THE HOPE PIONEER FOREIGN LOINS POLICY DEBATED William Randolph Hearst Seeks to Restrain Treasury from Further Transactions. QUESTION RIGHT TO SUE Hearst's Counsel Asserts Taxpayer Has Right to Question Govern ment Finances—Dealings With Russia Are Reviewed. Washington.—Foreign loans extend ed by the treasury during the war and since the armistice were vigor ously defended by government offi cials in reply to protestants against any further exercise of the govern ment's loan powers. Secretary Houston of the treasury resumed testimony before the senate judiciary committee on the Reed bill directing the stoppage of further loan negotiations with the debtor nations, and Solicitor General Frierson re sponded in court to the suit brought by William Randolph Hearst to pre vent further financial transactions with foreign governments. Correspondence Heavy. Mr. Houston was excused from fur ther appearance before the comihittee atter he had presented a mass of cor respondence covering the entire sub ject of negotiations, and had pointed out the impossibility of his reading them in full In the few days preceding Ma rcli 4. Mr. Frierson filed with the District of Columbia supreme court a brief reviewing the transactions with the foreign powers and declared there was no necessity for the injunction brought by Mr. Hearst as a taxpayer, as. Secretary Houston had no inten tion of establishing additional credits in favor of any foreign powers. The solicitor general reviewed at length the conditions under which money was advanced to the Kerensky govern ment of Russia. He also asserted that Secretary Houston did not con cede that the plaintiff possessed a status entitling him to call in question the various credits or that the court had any jurisdiction to determine such a controversy. Taxpayer Free to Act. Counsel for Mr. Hearst, replying to the solicitor general, declared the su preme court of the United States had never refused to entertain a suit by a taxpayer- to prevent a federal official from disposing of the money or property of the United States la an alleged unlawful manner. It also was maintained that a taxpayer has all the interest that, is required to restrain an executive official. The senate committee confined its efforts to the French, Czecho-Slovakia and Liberian loans. Secretary Hous ton said he did not regard the armiS' tice as causing "a situation which would prevent advances under the law" and that existing statutes gave him authority to continue loans until the president issued a proclamation of peace. UNION CONFERENCE CALLED Labor Federation Girds Self for Open Shop Dispute Looming Near. Washington.—The executive council of the American Federation of Labor met here this week preliminary to opening the conference of heads of 109 national and International labor unions called by President Gompers to con sider a "national policy" in connection with the present industrial situation. The meeting of the council is re garded by labor officials as of prime importance in connection with the meeting. Means of conducting an or ganized campaign against general in stitution of the "open shop" will be the chief, consideration of the conference, according to Frank Morrison, secretary of the Federation. "The conference will consider the publicity and other methods of our opponents," Mr. Morrison said, "and it is possible that labor will launch an opposing movement against those who imagine they control every ave nue of publicity. I believe labor will formulate a plan to expose the pre tense of men who are only interested in cheap labor and a continuation of a policy ojf profiteering. "The trade union movement Is alert to the forces arrayed against it and proposes to act vigorously and cour ageously.'' Wage reductions proposed or or ordered in organized industries, re cent developments in anti-strike laws and compulsory arbitration are sub sidiary propositions to be considered by the labor heads. Home Rule Effective April 5. London.—The privy council has de cided that the home rule act for Ire land shall go into effect April 5. The first step under the act Is to be the issuance of writs for elections to the new parliaments, which probably will take place three weeks afterwards. The Belfast parliament will assemble in June. The present prospects seem to be that few candidates will come forward for the southern parliament, and it seems doubtful whether this parlia ment will be formed Uncle THE USE OF SICKNESS UTI ERE is the most wonderful book iX ever offered the public," said the agent with enthusiasm. "It Is en titled 'Psychology and Disease,' and every page has an astounding revela tion. When this book is universally read and under stood, there won't be any disease In the world." "Which is equiv alent to saying that when the pigs are flying, a man with the rheumatism will get a job as con tortionist," said Mrs. Curfew. "I have listened to agents for many years, and have heard all kinds of silly talk, but yours is the worst yet. You can't convince me that the day will ever come when a man with the jumping rheumatism, such as my hus band is afflicted with, can sit down and cure himself by reading a book, even if the book is endorsed by con gressmen and justices of the peace and other dignitaries without number. "If disease ever Is banished from the world, I have no doubt that some thing worse will come to take its place. I believe that everything in this world is here for a good purpose, even if it doesn't look that way at first glance. "Early this spring there was an epi demic of measles in this neighbor hood, and of course my little grand daughter had to come to visit me. She never comes when the health con ditions nre all that could be desired, but just as sure aa there is smallpox or seven year Itch or some other con tagious disease rampant, that angel child comes to spend a few days with her beloved grandmother, and she catches everything there is going. "She hadn't been here two days be fore she was down sick. She had more measles than I ever saw one collection before, and her face was a sight to be seen. I was inclined to murmur and repine, for I was Just done with my housecleaning and was so tired I felt as though I'd like to lie down and sleep jfor six months, and there I was with a .sick child in the house, and I was to be up night and day seeing that she didn't catch cold, for if a child catches cold when she has that disease, some of the measles are sure to "strike in, and then she goes blind or loses her hearing or be comes an idiot. "I was complaining to Mr. Curfew, and saying harsh, bitter things, when a boy came to the door with a tele gram. It was from Cousin Susan, and she said she was coming on the night train with her three children to spend a week with me. She invites herself that way about once a year, and I al ways dread her coming, for her chll dren are holy terrors, and there id no peace where they are. "I never had a good excuse for head ing Cousin Susan off before, and she had become a nightmare to me. But on that occasion I had an excuse all ready made. I sent back a telegram saying that my granddaughter was In the house with an aggravated attack of measles, and the house was quar antined, and a policeman wltlf a sawed-off shotgun was guarding tfce approaches to the house. Of course I didn't use exactly those words, but that was the meaniqg of my dispatch, and Cousin Susan had to take her off spring and unload them on her Aunt Maria, who had never suffered a vis itation of that sort before. "This shows' that diseases have their use, and even a few measles in the house are a wellspring of pleas ure, when we regard them properly, with a determination to realize our blessings. So I have no use for any book that shows how to abolish dis eases, and now must disperse, for I have a hundred things to do. Arabs Suffer From Famine. "The Drinkers of Sunshine," as the Arab shepherds call themselves, are on the verge of starvation throughout Al geria, and unless wheat Is imported from America it may have nothing but sunshine as a steady diet during the winter.

SIMPLE ROAD TO HAPPINESS As Benevolent Old Gentleman Pointed Out, Desired Result Might Easily Be Attained. The beautiful young woman, dressel in fashion's most pronounced style, entered the street car and sat beside a rather benevolent-looking old mail. As the car started she happened to glance out the window at a bunch of little girls playing on the sidewalk. "Don't they look happy," alia gushed. "But no wonder. Why, I remember my happiest days were when I used to wear short, little gingham dresses." Now, the man had seen her enter the car, and he was well informed about the length of the dress she was wear ing, so there was no mistaking his hint. "You might try gingham instead of the silk you're now wealing," he suggested.
