Lighter Naval Craft Made
Perfect Score In
Naval Expedition.
Officers Expect Flight To
Fanama I o Be Ended
On Schedule.
DIEGO. Califs Jan. I. A day of
,J rest for the crews and minor re
pairs for the planes was ahead of
the F-5-L section of the navys San
Diego-Panama aerial expedition to
day. However, it was thought likely
the XC sections, planes Nos. I and f,
which were at Magdalena bay on the
coast of Lower California, might at
tempt today to flv on to Banderias
bay where the lighter craft arrived
last Saturday.
The F-e-L craft have covered about
a third of the southward flight with a
perfect record. The sensational "hop"
made by the KC-fi from San Diego to
Magdalena bay. 702 miles without s
stop, leads naval officers here to feel
confident that the NC planes will
overtake the F-5-L section and finish
the flight on time.
The New Tear's day flight of the
F-5-L.'s carried them over the south
ern stretch of the gulf of California
and put behind them one of the long
est and most hazardous laps of the
Panama flight. The next stage will
be south along the Mexican coast to
Acapulco, a distance of 439 miles.
Ideal fying weather Is reported along
the southern coast of the mainland,
indicating possibly the most difficult
part of the ions trip has been suc
cessfully passed.
The U. S. S. Aroostook, tender to
the air squadron, left Magdalena bar
a minute after the F-5-L. planes had
taken off and hi due at Banderias to
day. The U. 8. S. Mugford is to re
main at Magdalena bay until the two
NCs resume the flight.

today bj the senate over president
Wilson's veto.
The vote was taken immediately
after the president's veto message
was read. Similar action by the bouse

Jan. I. Public onm-
i-i ion received a shock when the de
tails of the burning of the Irish
town of Midleton on Saturday were
made public This shock waa par
ticularly felt In quarters where It
had been supposed that martial law
in southwestern Ireland would put
an end to much reprisals.
Nowhere is there outspoken ap
proval of the punishment meted out to
the Irish village by Ma. Gen. air Ed
ward Strickland, and there evidently
is some reluctance to Indorse this
method of keeping order.
In official statements it Is declared
that seven dwellings In Midleton were
destroyed as a result of an ambush
of police near that town. It was de
clared the authorities had decided that
the people living In certain houses
in the vicinity of the outrage must
have known of the plot to ambush the
police, and that after the inmates of
the houses selected for destruction
bad been warned to leave, the build
ings were set on fire.
The occupants were permitted to
remove their valuables, but had to
leave their furniture behind.
Views Of Newspapers.
While declining to question the act
of burning the houses, on the ground
that it was a draatlc measure, the
London Ttmee questions the adequacy
of the explanation that the Inhabi
tants of the burned dwellings were
bound to have known of the ambush.
"Official reprisals." the newspaper
continues, "may be a rough form of
Justice, but despite the roughness, the
element of Justice should be always
beyond question."
The Daily News says "the reports
will be read with amazement and
despair. It is a savage outrage upon
human decency and the matter can
not be left where it is "
The Da'lv Herald, organ of labor,
calls It "savage and diabolical vio
proposed is wise, that the benefits, if
any. would offset the evils wh ich
would result or that the same or
larger advantages cannot be secured
without resort to government inter
vention. On the contrary. I appre
hend that the resumption of the cor
poration's activities at this time
would exert no beneficial influence
on the situation In which improve
ment is sought; would raise false
hopes among the very people who
would expect most, and would be
hurtful to the natural and orderly
processes of business and finance.
Credit Extensions.
Large government credits were I
extended during the war to certain i
European governments associated
with us in the struggle. These ceased
several months after the armistice,
except for commitments already
raaae. mey anouia not now De re
sumed, either directly or indireetlv. .
The recent Brussels conference, com
posed of experts from many Euro
pean countries and from other na
tions. Itself expressed the opinion
that further credits should not be
accorded directly by governments. I
ao not believe that they should be
accorded Indirectly.
"Exports of domestic products have i
no i. oecunea since me armistice, ud
the contrary, they have greatly in
creased. From an aggregate value
before the war of less than two and
one-half billions of dollars and of
about six billions the last year of
hostilities, they rose in the calendar
year 1919 to more than $7,900,000,000,
and this figure will probably be ex
ceeded for the last calendar year.
For the first 11 months of last cal
endar year we exported more than
seven and one-half billion dollars
worth of domestic merchandise.
These have been largely privately
financed. The difficulty in the way
of stilt larger exports does not seem
to lie so much in the lack of financial
ability here as la Europe's lack of
means to make payment. Her pro
ductive energies and the services
which she renders have not yet
reached a point where they balance
the value of commodities taken from
this nation, and her ability to furnish
additional exports securities which
business men would feel Justified in
taking Is restricted.

ference reported that 'one of the
